"john layman" Discussed on I Read Comic Book
"It's hard to connect some things sometimes so I read this through but Twice just to make sure that I understood the whole thing and the one thing I will say. Hey that really worked for this book is there are very clear feelings throughout this book. You get these strange. These strong emotions from these very simply drawn ghosts sts is happiness. Sadness feelings of loneliness bonding love. But there's this sense of dread hanging over everything everyone is dead. I think and I say I think because there is. There's the end of this book. Does something that changes the nature of the entire entire story. From what you think you're reading to where the end goes and I was really impressed with the way that while this black and white book ended up using color and in my head as I was reading. It like this splash of color. Hits the page and it triggered this Weird Symphony of change in music in my mind like there was clearly something different happening because obviously color was introduced but the way that it was used I thought was just beautiful and so the story ends on a on a very interesting beat. I don't WanNa spoil it I think There's a huge question that kind of ends the book and I think for a book like this that is super ambiguous to begin with any with an end. Biggest question seems like a bad idea but I actually really liked it so for fifty. Five pages This is a really cool interesting read. I don't know if Matt Selling this book or anything out there. But his name is Matt Canning. The book is called Honeymoon in the afterlife. So if you want to check it out I would just say Google this guy. Well I'll put the name of this book and stuff in the show nuts. If I find a link I'll put that in there as well it. It sounds interesting. I'll have to check. Yeah definitely yeah it was. It was A. It's a really cool cool little book but yeah let's let's move on. Let's let's talk about comic books that are coming out this upcoming coming week. Comics were dropping on February fifth. Two Thousand Twenty twenty twenty. What are you guys excited for? This week Paul Start with you. Well let me start with a confession. Listen I am about six issues behind on Justice League But I'm going to hear you. I know I'm going to I'm going to Pick Justice League number forty With the big caveat because issue forty of justice league introduces a new creative team. And again my my My backlog of under issues issues has nothing to do with the quality of the Scott Snyder. Current justly Grun just the fact that I managed to miss an issue in there so I have to go track down and then get caught up. But GOTCHA Gotcha I really have liked to discuss under justice league. It's big over the top. It's it's one of those books that's it. It's Great Justice League story at the same time manages to kind to rewrite the entire history of the DC comics universe It's a big thing so part of me wants maybe that's not necessarily smaller scale but you know more traditional type of Focus Superhero heroics in my justice league book so the new creative team jumping off this. You Forty Robert Venditti With Doug Monkey on pencils. I think that's a pretty solid creative team and click the first story ARC. They're doing is about a group of Genetically Modified Superman men being led by the radical leader. Who Attack Earth? That's my jam. I mean that sounds like the Kinda stuff I mean. That's the kind of stuff just as it should be fighting so Just he goes on those books that I think should be flagship team book and for long periods of time it kind of flounders and I think right now the gala moment momentum going in this new team team has a lot to live up to and I think they can pull it off so excited to see what they do yet. That's a dead rubber vendee Deion Doug Monkey that stat. That's like a valiant team right. Nick is it is that a value of Vin de wrote X. amount of war for a long time. But I believe Okay Harry. Nord was the artist not okay monkey okay. Okay never knew vendettas. Name I knew. He was heavily associated with valiant at one point so direct. Yeah very cool very cool. Nick what about you would expect it for this week. So for me. It's probably gotta be Predator hunters three number one for those who need clarification it is. This is the third iteration of the the Predator Hunter Series and the first issue of that series It's not exactly a a big brain book. I mean maybe I'll be shocked. Maybe this maybe this'll be the book that thoroughly you know deconstructs the nine panel grip better than anything else. I'm probably going to go out on on a lemon say no But you never know Basically the whole premise of this franchise. If you want to call it that is is. Hey what if instead of getting murdered on a massive scale by predators people banded together and went after predators to catch a predator. If you will like it's GonNa work out well for them lake but like I'm not a huge Predator fan I'll I'll I'll I'll just say that like Predator for me is like when you go to the store because he want goldfish right and they don't have goldfish but they have like the store. Brand brand brand knockoff. Which is like Wales and you're like well? The whales don't come in multiple colors and they're not flavor blasted. But I guess these will do And I talk about snacks snacks here. I mean I gotta stay you you you write what you know right And for me that's junk food so in in that analogy aliens are the real goldfish. I want I want. I want goldfish. I want aliens. Predator is okay Okay and then the Goldfish. That also have the Pretzel Goldfish than ADP. Because it's like it's not everything I want but it's all right Look brother people are like Whoa. What is this book going for? And that's fair. I get that one. The number one issue has a very uncovered which glows in the dark I'm I'm all about that. Dumbness so all right that's good Secondly honestly more serious note The Art is being drawn by Brian. Fees and I guess I should've. I should've had the credits there Written by Chris Warner Art by Brian thies colored by West does obea Fees drew all all of the Aliens Life in-depth series all seventeen issues of it From several years ago when a Dan abn it was writing that so in that percents. That's that's something I'm I'm interested probably GonNa read it in trade It looks like they're actually discontinuing ongoing story and starting something fresh compared to the first is to ARC's but we'll see Beyond that I will say there are two other really strong contenders for book of the week. from yen press which came across while I was is on fresh comics looking at this week's books so one of them is titled No joke quote Im Behemoth of the S Rank Monster. But I am mistaken as a cat and I live as A. I'm sorry. Let me make sure I get this right. Because it's I'm adding words quote. I am behemoth of the s rank monster that I am mistaken as a cat and I live a pet of Elf girl volume one. That's a book. Hey Yup There's another one with slightly smaller title Called after school bitch craft volume one which uh-huh listen people read books okay. They're all different types out there. You know we say this all the the time. If you have an interest there is a comic for you and I think someone out there. These comics are for them. These these could be good. I I mean honestly that the first one with the title like that. I almost feel like they've actually described everything that's going to happen but maybe not something if the book is that if the book titles that descriptive you know that the story has to be either massively complex or so simple. You know exactly what you're getting into right like this is is this is insane. I can't believe that's a thing I'm we're moving on though because I'm GonNa talk about what book that I'm excited for this week and I'm going to check out this new book from John Layman. I'm and Carl Mostert called the man who left up time. This is a this is really. It's Scifi action comedy from Lehman and I'm okay with that and this is a brand new artist just making his way in the scene so I'll give it a shot. I don't know what this could possibly be about. But obviously there's going to be time travel goofiness so I am on-board at least to try number one. Yeah that's that's pretty much it. I mean I'm always willing to try John Layman Book. Despite the rumblings we've talked about elsewhere. Were with him. But I'm always willing to try the other book that I was going to mention. was I kind of want to pick up X.. Men Slash fantastic tastic for number one chips at archies writing this for some reason I have constantly just been avoiding reading ships that are skis marvel books not for any particular reason I just. I just don't read them. I don't know what it is for some reason I expect it. I worried that it can't be as good as some of the other stuff that he's read so I'm not. I'm just going to be disappointed. But I've I've only heard stupendous things about all the work that he's done at marvel but I the One reason why am hesitant about this book in particular because I never really understood why crossover titles between the the accident fantastic four ever happen. It's like mixing oil and water to me like they just don't go together. Science and not science shouldn't be go hand-in-hand in hand like this and say the desk for even remotely scientific right because there's it's all science magic but it feels like they're two different different types of stories. That really don't clash well but I don't know Mitt someone someone out. There proved me wrong. I don't know isn't there. There's a whole Seen in house of X.. Where where thank the fantastic four show up when they're setting up Krakatoa? I don't remember the details but they've been sitting for awhile I think so sure. Yeah I mean Senate not to say that it doesn't make sense in continuity I just feel like the types of stories that they tell in those books. Don't Clai like don't mix well and you just hate Franklin. You Hate Franklin Franklin Richards and I think by saying that He's going to come kill me in grand multiversity things right. Because he's he's like UBER super over powerful. I know that he's a mutant right. Like that's that's the whole big thing is that he's in Super Mutant and extra whenever you want. Kid just come over and you can live even our house with my real mom and dad professor access like yeah we we have. Hbo Your Thirteen now. We'll we'll turn a blind wind. I if you want to turn on cinemax after eleven so I don't know maybe that's what the book is going to be about chips writing it right. He only writes comedy books. Right guys right I know that he doesn't because I read the first issue of spider man the life and times and it was very good I picked up the recipes. have yet to read them.

"Massive amount of military hardware manpower that was being Floridian. Janis gyms physical the opposite. He's thin and very tall with brown hair that flops over his forehead. He spent most of his life in Racine Wisconsin a small industrial city outside of Milwaukee but in nineteen sixty seven. Not Too long after. Jim got his draft card. John enrolled in graduate school at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Asan at the time the campuses were beginning to rebel and a lot of student protests over the fact that the United States was beginning to draft people against their will. He remembered one class in particular where tear gas came in the a window. John was in Graduate School for history and he saw America's involvement in Vietnam through that Lens. Thought about it. You would have second thoughts with the United States. was doing there as an edge to the French colonial power. John also thought about the war and moral terms. Religion has played a huge role in his life. He went to a Lutheran college and thought about becoming a pastor. Tried to figure out how to put faith into action in college. He found inspiration the civil rights movement and civil disobedience. I saw a Christian method of making a point being assertive on behalf of justice but being willing to accept whatever punishment would come John those ideals to heart while while at Madison he had a student deferment so as long as he stayed in school. He couldn't be drafted but John wanted to do more than just protests on campus. So I dropped out the end of the first semester to start a draft counseling service talking to young men about the war and about corruptions. He wanted his peers to be informed to know their rights with the draft and John decided to apply as a conscientious objector. But I I just couldn't say that I wouldn't have supported my country during World War Two. That's the one that my dad and my uncles and everybody. I knew participated needed him and so his application was denied. He didn't qualify as a conscientious objector. And he got an order to report to the local draft board in the summer of nineteen in sixty eight one morning soon after he boarded a bus to Milwaukee gotta physical and then you go into a room and they ask you to lineup and then an officer reads a statement that says as a sign that you're inducted into the armed forces of the United States take one step forward well whole room guys stepped forward except for me and then the officer came personally to manage the deer. No what you're doing. I'm going to give you a one more chance and I said yes. I know what I'm doing. I refused induction. August fifth nineteen sixty eight refusing induction means that John refused to be drafted and that is a felony. He did get to go home that day but then he had to wait for the consequences. He waited for two years finally one day when he was at work. I got a phone call from a woman who lived in the same building I did. She said John Run away. They were just here trying to arrest you and anyway as the phone call came men. There were two Husky guys in suits Kinda walking getting toward my desk there to resume work. John's parents helped him get a lawyer. And they fought his case at the federal courthouse. In Milwaukee Eh finished five years in jail and ten thousand dollar fine as a maximum penalty for induction refusal and until judge. Gorden didn't on my sentencing day said ninety days in jail. Twenty Months Hospital work. I could have been going to jail for five years three months in jail. Twenty one months working in a hospital it could have been much worse but the federal bureaucracy move slowly and John had to wait eighty two more years before he could finally serve his sentence. John told me those years in limbo were actually harder than the jail time or the low wage work not not knowing the moment when his life would suddenly be interrupted. The most difficult thing is to be a young person and not know what you can do with your life. By the time John Finally went to jail foll of Nineteen seventy-two most of his friends had settled into a career. They were buying houses getting married having kids. That's that's what Jim Duca veto is doing up in Michigan. John worried he'd never do any of those things except one a few months before he began his sentences. NC started spending a lot of time with a young woman named Cathy. After John reported jail they wrote letters every day and then one day Kathy came to visit set. I actually proposed to Cathy when I was in Waukesha. County jail through Peaceful Asha to interest with is a little phones in microphone. Wasn't I lucky. She said yes. She is a very courageous woman when courageous because John Sentence wasn't the end of its troubles he still had a felony conviction on his record preparing sore worried that I wouldn't be able to get a decent job that I wouldn't be employable. That would be hard on both of us and for many years it was. We're driving driving down college avenue. The only brickstreet left next day. John took me on a dragon tour of his hometown. The White House on the right is where my wife grew up. Eventually we got to look like a small college campus. Lots of old brick buildings wide lawns straight ahead and four square blocks here. It's Dacoven Foundation for church work. John and Kathy moved to the foundation campus for John's job or we did all kinds of maintenance work before he went to jail. John Todd High School History and social studies. He reapplied for his old job when he finished his work sentence. Since the school wouldn't hire him back so with few options left he became a maintenance guy I built a firewall around. One of the furnaces in this basement built like fifty some storm windows. He was a very overqualified janitor but the job came with a big park. I I worked here for a free apartment for no cash. No salary so for him to contribute any income at all John had to take on a second job but at least he and Cathy had a place of their own John to an old brick building with warped windows. That's where we lived right there. That's above a garage door. One two three one dollars so is my wife. And William our baby it was nineteen seventy four.

"Etre WC CO, handsome husband, who was riding around on the hover board over the blue zebra rug because we were really boring to zebras. It's in my house. Again, the word zebra. Z E, B, R A seven to eight one. I hope you win a thousand dollars. Okay. We completely digressed the rug the money, all of that stuff. Paul, what we were talking about was Email people are inundated with it is actually a source of massive anxiety when you go in the morning. You know, you log on your computer, you look at your phone, and you have one hundred emails and you think how my possibly going to get through this today? Our next expert, right? Is going to help you through it. John layman is a productivity experts. He's been on the show before. And she's going to help us how to avoid how to avoid drowning in our Email jam. So happy to have you back. Good to have you back. Thank you. I mean, hundreds of emails, you can see why this would be a source of anxiety, right? Oh, yeah. Yeah. You're lucky it's only hundred. People really have thousands of emails. Well, a lot of people don't they used their inboxes reference file, and they say, like every single Email in there. You know, they still need to respond to and. Yeah, many are up to ten thousand in their inbox that it'd be very stressful for. Okay. So isn't your go ahead? I have twenty two thousand two hundred and five emails in my five Email account, do I have to keep them for legal reasons? So some of the stuff I can't easily delete. We'll Jan can you help him because that's not sound. One thing I'll say in all you're trying to say this to Jordan about her AOL account. You know, it's working for you at fine. But often we find you know there's a lot of issues. But what people don't know is it's just as easy to search for emails in folders on the side as it is in your impact. So a better strategy, if you have for it is, really, to use your inbox more like and to do this, and Eidos emails that you're, you're holding onto for legal reasons. So you don't need to do anything just move them to aside in a folder on the side. 'cause you can search there just isn't. It's a good point. Hate jim. I'm curious. My dad used to say a growing up. He said, touch every piece of paper on your desk. Once in other words, take action immediately. Don't put stuff off to the side either act on it or get rid of it. Toss it away. In the age of, of emails. How do we take that lesson to bear because all of us are drowning in Email? Yeah. Yeah. No. It's a good is a good analogy. And that's typical analogy the organizing world, which is the foundation of productivity, you know, touch it one. That's the most efficient way. Some of our emails, though, are like many projects. Right. So it's not something we can barely touch once. But, you know, the idea there being some people spend way too much time on Email, and some people don't spend enough time. And you kind of want that middle ground where you really do have to allocate chunks of time to sit and do Email. And when you're doing that definitely, when you read it like just get it done. Don't like put it off till later. If it's a quick pass, if it's a mini project, you don't really have the mindset to get your head around at that point. That's totally fine to wait on that. But for the most part processing ideally, sit down and really, you know, closer chunk of emails and get them done Jin with your clients. You also say, you know, it's really not an Email issue. It might be a management style issue. So how do you help your clients not only clean out there in by? Because we all know how to do that. But also avoid the twenty two thousand emails in the future. What's the root of this problem? Yeah. You know, it's really funny. I often get hired by senior leaders and they're like, I don't know what's going on. But I know there's a lot of dysfunction and I'll say, well, what's what he thinks going on. And almost always say, well, everybody has too many emails. And that's why I always say that you meals a symptom is so often, there's lots of things that could be going on. There one it could be that somebody could be really good at managing Email, but there don't know how to delegate work. And so they haven't really assigned responsibility to people in the organization, so that they can be the point person for the conversation, and then just Luke management, and when necessary so often when I coach somebody, you know, we've made him a really good time manager really good manager of Email and they still have too many emails. We look at delegation is kind of the next thing. We'll also look at things like you know if they're too controlling perfectionist you know, they just trying to be too involved in everything we also look very hard at what they should eliminate. My one of my mom as is prioritize you with eliminate as much as you can automate, everything you can delegate as much as you can. And so people are really just holding on and expecting that they can do away more work than really passable. And so often we get into a coaching conversation if this emails that in your inbox for six months, you know, chances are never going to be an IRA. So just get ready. Yeah. Hey, John, I'm an observation and then a question I'm probably as passive aggressive as everybody else. I'm a manager. I have people that work with me in the two other companies, and I find it and it's kind of lazy on my part, it's easier to shoot off an Email than it is to ask a question face to face in the back of my mind is this'll be faster. I've got twenty things to do. It'll be much faster for me. If I just send an Email on that way, there's also a written record. So if you could address that, and then. What to do on vacations, I've noticed, you know, do I carve out some time on vacation to try to answer urgent emails? Otherwise, when I come back, I come back to five hundred emails, so it's it seems like there's a no win situation. There. Yeah. So vacation one, I tell you really a simple socal answer that people don't think about is if you're going to be gone for a week your first day back in the office, you shouldn't have any meetings, and you should expect that you're going to be doing attorney emails, and certainly there'd be things to do before if you can delegate authority to people to handle things, but people are just unrealistic sometime and you can't expect to gone for a week and come back and go back to wreck interior regular day to day of back to back meetings and all that. So just a strategy of always blocking to get caught up on his good. And then what was your question? It was about you, being a manager and. Yeah. To just push out emails. Yeah. Yeah. They it is such a simple tool, and so people abuse it. And so one of the things you want to start doing is think about kind of the ripple effect that if I start in this past this conversation, the Email is this, the most effective or is it gonna cause confusion, or hurt feelings, or this horrible ping pong of emails back and forth? And so one of the things I think about, is, you know, what type of conversation is if it's if it's negative or in any way, a sensitive conversation. Absolutely. That should be face to face. Eighty five percent of what we Kate store body language, and so you don't want to do it. You know what you can't see the person's respond if it is a discussion where complex topic. That's not be done the Email. That's really that should be done in a meeting and people don't know how to run meetings these days, so they tend to do the wrong thing in the wrong space, but you can, sir. Certainly start a conversation about a complex topic. The Email and I'd recommend it because many people would prefer to have some information ahead of time. Have the chance to read it and dissect it, but don't, don't expect them to respond to the now asked them to fall. Schedule a time for a conversation communications, a huge hurdle and business and putting Email between two people makes it even more of a difficult thing.

So Michael since you like why the last man saga recommend to more Bryan cave on comics. Let me put my list, I recommend paper girls, which is eighty cent sci-fi story, but a group of grows newspapers who uncover time travel, and if Mitchell invasions in monsters and creatures, and it goes, some some pretty wild places very quickly. It is like stranger things without letting you down in season two it is really incredible. And really fun. It has that Bryan cave on mix of comedy and horror and Saifi cliff. Chiang's aren't is amazing. If you also Bryan cave on one this one aren't by Tony Harris ex Makina busy just here. Is that in alternate reality? The second. World Trade Center. Tower was saved by superhero who then uses his newfound clout to become elected, mayor of New York City. So is back to his crew superhero and his time trying to run New York is like a mayor whose woefully under qualified for the job. It is very political very dark very cynical. And it's actually one of the most thoughtful post nine eleven pieces of art I've ever encountered. On a super comes with all times bone Jeff Smith, it is. It is very much old fashioned adventure story starts out. Very very funny gets more sewage goes along think looney tunes meets Lord of the rings made by Pixar because it was a comic. It is beautiful and lovely thinking by the whole series in one book for forty bucks. It is the best way bucks who ever spend I'll recommend chew a comedy mystery series. But I man with the power to see the past anything, he think he bites her ingests. So he's detective and he uses his powers to solve mysteries. It's very much issue based issues on complete story, but I'll build is to one ongoing science fiction epic where things get really crazy and really funny, and ultimately really dark. It is a very very dark series despite its very goofy setup in tone. I really recommended that are written by John layman with art by rob gallery recommend the six gun, which the supernatural western series about Cowboys facing off against all kinds of monsters and demons. And creatures. It is from writer Cullen Bunn and Brian hurt. It is incredibly fun. I feel like it is one of the most adventurous and exciting series. I've ever encountered is all it's all finished. Now, it can be that all if you wanted to a six gun scalps is this is one they've been trying to talk about making into a TV show for a long time a Noir police detective story set on a native American reservation in the United States where an undercover FBI agent infiltrates a crime ring on a on a navy Mick reservation where he grew up, and it's really really good and powerful and has some social commentary delves into the problems with reservations. And how the people there are neglected and abused by by the country. It's very much the wire set in in a reservation instead of in Baltimore. For for our end fatal by Edwin Baker, and Sean Phillips, this is imagine nineteen forties film, the war story, mashed with eight hundred lovecraft har-, it is really scary and really good with really gnarly gross art.

"I get stunt under. Dr John layman who still the most knowledgeable person that ever met to this day on metabolism. And did a lot of research in protein metabolism. A little bit of fat metabolism. And carbohydrate metabolism. I've gotten more into those since I've been out of research and actually now a lot of I won't call it research because it's not research because I'm not in a lab, and I'm very sticky about this. But I do a lot of reading of literature regarding fat tissue metabolism weight loss weight regain what actually causes weight loss. Why it's so hard people to keep weight off. And why the relapse Satistics for weight loss? There's so striking. Why quite frankly, we have a big obesity problem? So and I think that that process. You kind of learn like you said a lot of stuff works. You know? So I always kind of approach it from the question of all right? Why do things work? And also, you know, what is best for the individual. And what's best for the individual a lot of boils down to what do they feel at least restricted on? Right. So some people they say, you know, I'm on intermittent fasting. And it feels like I'm not even dieting some people say, I do Kito when I'm not hungry at all it feels like I'm not dieting other people they try that. And they hate it. In fact, I just post the other day a study showing that the Kito adherence rates are the same as pretty much all the other diets that are assessed. But that doesn't mean that some individuals don't just don't really enjoy hito. I'm sure they do. And it's easy for them. Other people you give them the option of flexible dieting, and they said, well, I can eat whatever I was on Trump my calories and Trump protein awesome. I'm so a lot of stuff works, and I think just being honest about okay? What are the drawbacks to each method? What are the benefits of each method? You know, I think the uncomfortable truth that a lot of people don't wanna listen to is. Is there probably isn't one best diet for everything for health, right? Because if you do one thing, you're if you do something that's good for cancer. You might mess up something, that's that's bad for heart disease. If you're trying to become really, strong, maybe your endurance, and maybe other areas of of course, it nece suffer. Right. So the fact is that for every gimme, there's a Gotcha. And I just try to be up front about that. And honest about it. And that's kind of where my perspective comes from as I look at stuff and say, okay, what are the drop one of the plus sides. What are the drawbacks? And then let's make the best decision. We can for the individual based on their goals, and what seems to work for them. Dr Baker gives us the rundown on kind of who you are how you got into the carnivore diet. Maybe tell us a little bit about the old days of the Highland games. And some of those things. Yeah. So I I am certainly meted by every. I've been I've been around sports and lifting for about forty years. Now, I'm in my early fifties. And so I've I've, you know, progress her all that stuff. I, you know, I specked your elders lane Norton. Young guys. You know, I've been doing this forty soon. So you know, you're getting married starting to starting to mature a little bit. But. You know? I've been doing this forever. I mean, I start I went to medical school out of college actually dropped out of medical school to go to New Zealand play rugby. I got offered to go do that.

"Arpaio is also funding work to develop below wait mirrors made out of beryllium for use and stuff like inva- red telescopes and ballistic missile defense systems and weapons guidance systems that ended up being useful for lots of stuff, especially in space. I mean anytime, and I'll mention this again toward the end of the episode anytime you can reduce the amount of weight of the components. You're sending up into space y'all wanna do it because wait essentially equates money, the heavier your payload is to get into space the more expensive. It's going to be to get up there. So this was an important development. Not just for these military guidance systems and defense systems, but for space faring stuff overall are also funded development of technologies that would be incorporated into a new generation of detection equipment that could pick up Soviet submarine movements. The project was considered one of the agency's biggest successes with the resulting technology being deployed in the early nineteen eighties. So again, you see how far ahead the agency is from the production of technology. You know, it several years out from where they're doing the research and development. They do the are indeed work in the early seventies. It's not really ready to be rolled out in an application until the nineteen eighties. But that was again Arp argument, they said we are necessary to be able to to work on these problems anticipate these things so that we're ready to go within a decade or so, but if we're not doing that if we're being reactionary instead of proactive we're going to be behind the game. John layman who is secretary of the navy in nineteen eighty-five would end up saying that because of these submarines sensors if a war were to ever break out between the United States and the Soviet Union, though sensors would. Give him the capability to attack all Soviet subs. That were in deployment within the first five minutes of that war. So it was considered to be an incredibly successful technology. It's also indicative of a lot of DARPA early work, which focused largely on developing sensor technology for all sorts of stuff seismic. Sensors acoustic sensors radioactive, isotopes, sensors, etc. So there's also no getting around the fact that most of the technologies have talked about in these episodes are meant either to defend against or attack or to make attacks more effective. They're all supposed to be related to military stuff after all. But this next bit is sort of a relief from that in the early nineteen seventies Arba funded research into what was called glassy carbon. This was a foamy sorta stuff made from pure carbon and the foam had some really interesting features. It was strong. It didn't wave very much. It was chemically inert. And while the orig-. Idea was that the stuff might be really important for numerous electrochemical, applications one. Unexpected benefit was that it became a strong candidate for material to use in surgical implants like heart melts. And so it was and so this particular Arba project would fund work on technology that would go on to save countless lives. And I think that's pretty cool. It's also good reminder that while some of this technology was initially intended specifically for a military purpose or to potentially go into military applications. They often would have much wider applications than just military ones. In nineteen seventy-two Arp is materials research projects developed rare earth, permanent magnets capable of operating that me as you know, maintaining their magnetism across a range of temperatures that had been identified as being militarily relevant. And it's a pretty big range. So on the low end is minus fifty five degrees celsius or minus sixty. Seven Fahrenheit on the hot end of the scale one hundred twenty five degrees celsius which is two hundred fifty seven degrees Fahrenheit now. Typically heating a magnet will reduce its.

"Rather significant changes to nuclear force doctrine that, both countries adapted during this period because it gets to the heart of what really scared Russia in nineteen eighty three we can start briefly and I know I won't go into too much background. But it is kind of complex story in a little bit of. Of nuclear history will will make it go down a. Little more smoothly in nineteen seventy nine. Right before Jimmy Carter left office. He signed into law. Signed a secret presidential directive about nuclear strategy it took accounting advantage of all. The changes in technology spy satellite technology and nuclear targeting technology and basically said he does now the US has posture if. We're ever in conflict where we might wanna use nuclear war Weapons to commit to a protracted nuclear war and to survive a first strike and we could also. In theory if there was a war Sheikh to limited simply to. Europe so that we would never have to face the. Threat of a nuclear war from Russia. Now of course it's being America. The directive promptly leaks. And Russian military strategists sitting on the other side of the retailers And what's the shows to them is the. US is now committed if there, are the conditions that it, finds favorable to decapitate the Soviet leadership and to now take I nuclear strike by surprise the Soviet simply did not have. The, technology to, account for that. Or to change their doctrine to adjust for that so remember you've had at this point Decades where mutually assured destruction has been the policy, where the only reason why, you have nuclear weapons in so that they could serve as deterrent because nobody would dare shoot them nobody would their launch the nobody would dare fire them on anyone's, territory. Because it was folly and your side would be destroyed in the process but now that was suddenly changing and the US was into on Reagan's administration rapidly upgrading its nuclear weapons and it's command and control systems. And building out these secret continuity. Of government programs and was quite aggressive about its rhetoric against the Soviet Union President Reagan for reasons domestically but also. Because you sincerely believed in the evil of communism confronted the Soviet Union and tried to isolate the, Soviet Union ways that the. Era of detente which had passed in the nineteen seventies didn't account for so you get to nineteen Eighty-three suddenly a. Bunch of things happen this newly emboldened Military. By the in the United States particularly the navy Aggressive? Campaign, of psychological operations against Russia what do they do well during, the exercises in the Pacific nuclear fighter-bombers takeoff aircraft carriers and they, penetrate Russian territory And they buzzed Russian, surveillance planes that had been up trolling the skies seemingly out of the blue and. Then they leave that sort of confrontation had not happened since the very very beginning of, the Cold War when the US was really worried about Russian fighter-bombers but here. The US navy was deliberately provoking Russia and the US message that John layman who was the secretary of the navy actually just wrote his memoirs admitting this the goal is to freak the heck out. Of the Soviet Union to freak, the heck out of the years and to convince them that they had better not try anything funny with the United States. The short-term effects of that though was indeed to freak out the Soviet leaders who ordered their air defense systems to be on even, higher alert and engine, you might remember there was a Korean. Airliner civilian airliner that? Because, of an allegation era found itself on enviously flying over Russian, territory a few months later And was shot down by a Soviet air defence pilots on the basis of these new orders. Further increasing the tension again, he's, isolated series of events all kind of building up and then you had a a fall where the US fell the biggest.
