Fluttering Feathers Could Spawn New Species
"Charles Darwin is most famous for his finches from WHO speaks he gleaned the idea that a single species might radiate into many but he studied other attributes of birds to like the rhythmic sounds some species made during courtship by fluttering, shaking or rattling their feathers together. Seen Star Wing there has been this fact that birds produce sounds with wings and tails or flight feathers. So there are species of mannequins that that do the sounds and there's hummingbird sent the sound Valentina Gomez Bauman is an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist at the field museum in Chicago she and her team have now observed that non vocal sound production phenomenon in another type of bird, the fork tailed flycatcher the researchers studied two groups of the birds in South America and recorded the birds making these fluttering sounds with their wings during morning courtship rituals. Ending combat between males. One of the two flycatcher subspecies is migratory the other stays put, and by carefully measuring the bird's feathers, the research team found that the migratory birds had longer thinner feathers presumably for some aerodynamic advantage. But that altered feather shape also meant the birds fluttering produced a different frequency, compare the migratory birds flutter. To the stationary birds. So basically, what we think is that because of loss of migration pressures for flight may influence the shape of the individual feathers to the point where the sound quality changes as well. The details are in the Journal, Integrative and comparative biology. Gomez bomb on says they're still not certain what role the sounds play in day to day flycatcher life. If the birds do indeed even pay attention to them, but she suspects the sounds may have some cultural importance to the birds in which case she says, the communication differences between the migratory and non migratory birds could further divide the two types of birds or in other words, give rise to the origin of species.
Viral load is a puzzle in COVID-19
"Published in the Journal. Lancet, and the New England Journal of Medicine. Is suggesting that by wearing masks I mean this blowing my mind a I don't need face cream. Round, the mouth wrinkles and I need the eye wrinkles to show that I'm smiling under my mask. But apparently, by wearing masks, we could actually be improving our collective immunity two covid nineteen, and here's why I know. It's not just because we don't give it to each other but we could be making ourselves immune because when you're wear a mask if you are infected with the novel, Corona Virus It's at a lower dose and they're determining scientists increasingly that viral load is the key to this sucker. If you have a low viral load, you're either aced him dramatic or you don't get that. Sake. Loads are what seemed to correlate directly to severe illness and death. So wearing a mask reduces your viral load, but could still infect you. In. A way that would then lead you to would boost your immunity to the disease. Oh. So if someone breathes on you with cove in nineteen, but it comes at you through the mask, you'd get like the almost like an inoculation dose. Almost like an inoculation dose. So mattress mask wearing masks mask-wearing yeah. Could actually accomplish version of her immunity that doesn't kill a whole bunch of people. Yeah. So where a mask people. Boom. Yes. More more people.
Is It Time to Get Bullish on Banks?
"Welcome back to fast money banks catching a bid today in the back of a pair of upgrades, Goldman Sachs and Wells Fargo. But the group is still underperforming the rest of the market this year and it's still about twenty five percent off of twenty twenty highs. Karen actually bought some banks today which ones Karen and why. Well. As you know I am long. Bang. Same Long JP Morgan Citi, Bank Wells Fargo and Bank of America. But I added to GP Morgan today and this is really a trading position. So I had calls and call spreads just expiring October Sixteenth. So I'm really just playing for earnings and I think it's setting up well into earnings because the stocks have traded terribly they've actually been a hedge on my making money on any other parts of the portfolio they kind of hedge that out but I think that expectations are so low now that. The. Bars Low I. think there's a good chance they feed. PHYA fairmount and if they don't, I don't think there's that much more downside here. But I'm just playing really for the short term I. Think this is too low for earnings and it's coming up October thirteenth they think they'll all be that week. You know I know you you saw this Wall Street Journal today Dan but I think that the headline of the essence of the headline really captures the that the bank's Love the markets in twenty twenty but the markets don't love the banks. Yeah I haven't listened. It seemed like an easy trade most of the year to fade every rally in the banks and they're having. been too many dramatic ones. The massively outperformed the broader market here to me. They were showing some relative strength, the beginning of September. But then there are no shortage of headlines I think the banking it goes back to some of the things that we were just talking about the rates where they are go the exposure to. loan-loss defaults and bankruptcies that sort of thing I mean they have a lot of exposure there and I think they're more reflective of main street, then Wall Street, and if you look at the performance from the investment banks who've been benefiting from all from the lower rates and all the stimulus monetary and everything, there's a huge spread there too. So to me, I think you could see Bankamerica back at Twenty I. think you see JP Morgan back in eighty I think you could see Morgan Stanley. Back Forty Bucks I think that they have one more leg lower, but to Karen point that mid October week when all of those banks that make up maybe half the weight of the XL laugh report is there a trade there I just don't know if you start that trade today on September twenty third for October sixteen

Trump and Biden's Diverging Visions for American Foreign Policy
"In our ongoing election coverage were taking a deep look at how president trump and democratic. Presidential nominee Joe Biden differ on major policy issues. Today, we're going examine foreign affairs mark. Stewart spoke with the journals national, security reporter Warren Strobel. A lot of attention in recent days to the Middle East obviously president trump is touting success with peace accords with Israel. Let's talk about the trump approach versus the biden approach. Yeah I mean in the waning weeks of the campaign here Mr Trump has secured really historic agreements from the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to make peace with Israel and recognize it diplomatically big achievement. No. Matter how you count it. I think most people would agree but there are fundamental differences between the Republican Democratic candidates particularly when it comes to Saudi Arabia Mr Biden has said that he would review relations with Saudi Arabia, which is probably the most important US ally in the Middle East that he would consider stopping arms sales he's been very critical of their killing of the journalist dissident. Jamal Kashogi Mr Trump on the other hand has declined to put pressure on Saudi Arabia. Really. In any significant way he sort of dismissed defining by the CIA that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman probably ordered the killing of Mr. Kashogi and he has vetoed congressional moves to limit arms sales to Riyadh. Saudi Arabia obviously issues in the Middle East but also Iran. Let's talk about the different approaches there. Yeah. Here again, that's quite a stark difference Mr Trump. Two thousand seventeen withdrew from the Iran nuclear accord known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on. He has launched a campaign of maximum pressure designed to limit Iran's ability to cause trouble in the region and try to force it back into talks. He's also by the way in recent days Mr Trump has said get reelected around will come to the table and we can make a deal real quickly. Mr Biden has said he would go back into the nuclear agreement. He would get the United States back into that agreement if Iran also returns to compliance. So again, Joe Biden is tough on Iran but he is much more. I think looking at diplomatic track to try and halt their nuclear program. Another region of interest is certainly Europe. Obviously there are economic issues, their political as well as military issues. When we look at Europe, how big of a role does the relationship with NATO play in this discussion? You know I think it plays a significant role. NATO's the probably the most important and one of the longest standing alliances that the United States has. Important economically in terms of the trade between the United States and Europe, and important strategically given its role in sort of countering Russia Russia intervention in places like Ukraine Belarus. Again there's differences here though Mr Trump has been pretty critical of NATO. He demanded that all the countries live up to. A promise they made to spend two percent of their GDP. Self. Defense, and there have been rumors that he might withdraw from NATO entirely or want to. This is Chris from Mr Biden who again stressing the importance of good alliances with Europe and other parts of the world. You. Briefly mentioned Russia, where are the distinctions in viewpoint and policy between the two candidates? That's a good question. I think the trump administration has been in terms of my reporting and analysis sort of a weird bee's when it comes to Russia Mr Trump himself. No has been quite friendly with and trying to strike a good relationship with Vladimir Putin, but the people in the middle and. Upper levels of US government agencies are taking much more dim view, Mr Putin, and actually you know the US has done a lot of sanctions and other actions against Putin during Mr Trump's terms. So there's sort of a kind of a bipolar aspect to his administration's dealings with Russia Mr. Biden. I think has been more critical. Putin personally and has said he would stand up to Mr Putin on things such as election interference the Russian incursion into Ukraine and other things like that.

Scientists Say Disasters Are Teaming Up During Time Of Climate Change
"It's been a record shattering year for heat in the American West and this weekend is going to be hot too. If it seems like heat drought and wildfires are all piling together it's not your imagination scientists say climate change makes them more likely to happen at the same time. As NPR's Laura Summer reports. It takes a lot for heat to make headlines in Tucson. Arizona as Stephanie Small, House realize listening to the radio recently a couple days ago he said well, no warning for today it's only be one hundred six. Apparently. We're not over a hundred ten everybody should join the weather but this year is getting people's attention. Small House says she's president of the Arizona Farm Bureau Federation, and she also runs a cattle ranch outside of Tucson in the twenty years that I've been here on the ranch. This is probably just the second time that I remember a summer that's dry on top of the heat the entire Colorado River, which is key for Arizona's water supply has been in a twenty year drought. Is there tension in the Vermont Community Right? Now ranchy community absolutely is their stress absolutely these rare events. Are simply becoming more common says, Mogi Sunday professor of Civil Engineering Boise State University in a study in the journal Science advances he says that trend is clear over the past few decades basically routes or getting more intense and hot years or getting more hud, and the cycle between them is intensifying droughts and heat waves feed each other. He says when the soil is dry more of the sun's energy heats up the air then it's hotter making more water evaporate causing more drought. It's climate change driven cycle via have to move past that traditional thinking of heat waves and droughts and fires separately. Because they would work together they. They are the reason that we are seeing so many disasters, happening disasters like the extreme. Across the West this year, what is happening in California is a preview of what we'll see every. We need to act. Now we do not have any more minute I'm not talking about the years we do not have any more minutes to cut our emissions because in a hotter climate he says disasters are teaming up lauren summer NPR news.
Justice Dept move to make it easier to sue internet companies
"Department reportedly will submit a proposal to Congress today to curb longstanding legal protections for Internet companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Alphabets Kugel and forced them to shoulder more responsibility for managing content on their sites.

NC State Study Looks at Gender Disparity in College Esports
"We're looking at a paper published by an associate professor, any PhD student at North Carolina State University. The research appeared in the Journal critical studies on Mass Communication. The goal was to see if college is worth programs have been more successful at crecy gender representation. East sports than professional sports have there are a few women who compete at the highest levels of professional sports. Rockets Karma is well regarded player who has spent time in. Her stoldas women, when major tournaments it so as fortnight, but for dependent environment that doesn't have fiscal differences creating a gap between genders us for to still almost entirely male dominated Nick Taylor co-authored the study and associate professor of Communication at NC State said in the journal quote five years ago we thought collegiate sports might be an opportunity to create a welcoming diverse competitive arena which. Was a big deal given how male-dominated the professional eastward scene was rapid growth of collegiate sports over the past five years has led to it becoming more professional with many universities having paid eastwards, positions, recruiting players at so odd we wanted to see how that professionalization has affected collegiate sports and what that means for gender diversity. The findings did not give us reason to be optimistic. For this study naked, his Co author interviewed Twenty One people involved in these sports programs. Eight of the people are part of Varsity programs with the other thirteen being president of their schools. Collegiate East Sports Club six of the respondents identified as women fifteen identified as men PhD Student Bright Style, the other CO author of the study told the Journal. Quote essentially, we found that women are effectively pushed out of eastwards many colleges when they start investing financial resources in east, Sports Program we talk lease sports might help to address the disenfranchise women in eastport at engaging more generally instead, it seems to simply be an extension of that disenfranchisement and quote. While an interview of twenty, one people isn't a perfect encapsulation of the wide-ranging college. He's worth ecosystem, all twenty one or in key rules of big programs meaning they speak for quite a few more when it comes to gender disparity. College eastwards still have a chance to be a place where we can create more inclusive east sports environments, but `gate-keeping in Tuxes D- are still real problems that women face in the space without focused initiatives that disparity won't get much better.

The Massive Impact Work Has On Your Health & Why NOW Is The Time To Change It
"Today we'll be talking about one of the most overlooked health issues that has been affecting our entire world and it's been overlooked long enough and I truly believe that right now is giving us an opportunity to actually change this. So, we're going to start this with a Meta analysis of four, hundred, eighty, five studies, and this is published in occupational and Environmental Medicine. And found that job satisfaction is one of the strongest influences on mental health issues. In Our world, most notably for depression and anxiety. The study noted a relationship also between our job satisfaction and physical health issues like gastrointestinal issues and cardiovascular as well, and this is echoed in several other studies including study that was cited in the Journal of chronic diseases. Taking into consideration array of risk factors and of vocations and an array of income levels uncovered that the lack of satisfaction in the work that we do is a significant risk factor for coronary heart disease. Why don't we talk about this? Real health and wellness is dynamic. It comes from so many different things. It's not just about food you can eat the perfect. Personalized, unique blood type buddy type, every type diet. And go to work and spend half or more of your waking hours of your entire life hating what you do or being unhappy go into the place that you go every day or doing the work that you're doing instill still develop chronic health issues even if your diet is perfect, even if you're hitting the gym all the time, all of these things matter. Relationships matter our sleep matters. All of these things go into the overall code. The human that you are. and. This issue. More than any other time in our lifetime is something that we can change what's happening right now with the job market and all of the turmoil I believe is offering up an opportunity for us to change this because many people are working themselves in his sickness and don't even realize it. It's happening and they don't realize that it doesn't have to be this way now we're going. To discuss, there is a modicum of course of doing what you gotTa. Do you know getting the bills paid but we have to move beyond that and this is the opportunity to do. So we're GONNA talk about how we can actually do that today as well. But I want to dive a little bit deeper here because I scratched the surface in some of the issues that we see. The results of another peer reviewed study and this was published in two thousand fifteen finally direct link between job satisfaction and psychological distress as well as physical disorders. Now according to the researchers satisfaction with the nature of work that was doing was the strongest predictor for psychological distress for sleep disorders, headaches, and gastrointestinal problems what. You don't hear stuff like sleep problems caused by. Dissatisfaction with the work one is doing. The data exists, but this is something that we brush off really think about this. Again, we think somebody's illness quote comes out of nowhere where there are so many different factors like they eat. Perfectly they're exercising all the time. And we have to take a broader view of health now and take all of these things into consideration. And that's what I'm encouraging us to today. Another study. This was from researchers from the Ohio State University say that their work shows that happiness on the job or lack thereof appears to have the biggest impact on midlife mental health. One of study authors noted that and listen to this is really interesting. And having a scale very satisfied satisfied to completely dissatisfied. They discovered that quote seen with the majority of people are either very satisfied or satisfied with their job, but we find that even they subtle distinction between. Satisfied and simply being satisfied has significant effects on your health. I would say our studies, main findings are you're likely to have worse health if you don't love your job rather than if you hate your job So did you catch that distinction? People who are just kinda getting by tolerating what they do, and maybe they're okay with their job. But if they don't love their work, not loving your work, not loving the thing that you do every day is far more of a predictor of negative health outcomes than if somebody absolutely hated the job. So that little subtle distinction of actually enjoying what we do every day is the strongest predictor of our health when it comes to the work that we do.
Tesla aims for cheaper cars with new battery
"Today is Tesla's Battery Day It was hosted in conjunction with the annual shareholders meeting for Tesla. Elon musk, searching for a cheaper way to make the batteries for his cars in an effort to make the cars more affordable. For more on this, we turn to the KCBS Ring Central News Light and checking with Tim Higgins in his tech and autos reporter for The Wall Street Journal in San Francisco. So, Tim, what have we learned through Battery Day about the future of Tesla? Well, Saturday is really inflection point for the company. Um you on musket basically spent the last decade trying to bring out an affordable car for the masses. The Model three. The problem with the Model three is that it costs on average about $50,000. They briefly hit the $35,000 price point of view about a year ago or so, but it wasn't able to stay there because it was just too expensive to make it at that point and still keep the company going. And so what you honor is trying to do is lower the cost of batteries, and that's what he announced today, plans that he say over the next three years would lower a battery cost more than half And promising a $25,000 vehicle. What kinds of things we don't have to get to terribly into the weeds on it are going to reduce the cost of that battery, how to make it better and cheaper. Well, I think that people were looking at today's event for some sexy new cool technology. Their president really disappointed because really, they're getting their through a lot of Prick technical ways in so in total there getting those savings and things like building manufacturing. They're going to start building their own battery, so different chemistry, different way of making the vehicle for the battery packs that sort of thing so kind of combination of a lot of like integration of Off the that the ingredients that go into a
Does Growing Almonds Really Waste Too Much Water?
"Friend recently related to me a conversation that she'd had with her Barista, a well-known coffee chain. The BARISTA's convicted that she always bristles when her customers order almond milk for their la tastes because she said growing almonds waste so much water. You may have heard similar things about almonds and their negative impact on the environment. For example, maybe you've heard that it takes a gallon of water to produce a single almond and perhaps like my friends Brisa. You've even been avoiding almonds or almond milk out of concern about their water usage but as is so often the case there's a little more to this story. It's true that almonds are a very water intensive crop but not really more. So then most nuts if we were all to switch to pistachio milk or walnut milk and prompting farmers to start growing more of those nuts instead of growing so many almonds, we'd still be using about the same amount of water. According to data published in the June twenty eighteen issue of the journal Science, the Non Dairy alternatives that have the lowest water footprint are soy and oat milk but not milk's still use significantly less water to produce then cow's milk and in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, almond milk may actually be one of the better choices because these trap so much co two in their leaves more so than other crops but getting back to water issues, the reasons that almond uses such a large share of California's water supply is that they make up such a large share of. His cultural economy. The growing conditions in California are perfect for almonds plus almonds are really high value. Crop farmers earn far more per acre growing almonds than they can growing other crops and demand for almonds has also skyrocketed in the last two decades in part due to a sustained campaign by industry groups to promote the health benefits of almonds. Commodity Groups that support almond growers have spent millions of dollars funding research into almonds, effects on cholesterol, appetite, blood, sugar, body weight, and so forth all in an effort to convince consumers that almonds are super healthy food and it worked although our consumption of other nuts estate relatively steady our intake of alms has. Over the last half century in addition to eating more almonds were also buying more almond butter, topping our salads with almonds baking with almond flour, and ironically even though almond milk doesn't really contain the same benefits as all men's it is also perceived as being very healthy and for consumers who want to avoid both dairy, and so the almond milk has long been the go-to

Tell us more about who you are and what you're currently working on. So. My name name, the journals like you said just. As hard to kind of Embrace that term entrepreneur. You know I put it in bio because it's the easiest. Thing that people can understand without you. Know me having to explain any further but I just you know part of me just doesn't feel like one I'm just a more of a creative. Think of these great ideas and I say how are bring this to light you know so I don't think of me. Oh. I want to create all these businesses I think while that'd be a great product that I could sell, and then it usually turns into something else So each thing that I've started historic off one thing and kind of morphed into something bigger you know. But definitely on my plane is just to be a creative lead who has the ability to see ideas before they're made and know that they be profitable and be fine. You know 'cause this for me it's like. The money is you know but I enjoy the process of it. It's fun to me. To see these things come to live come to life rather and so So that's GONNA. Margot here is you know entrepreneurship is kind of the side It's kind of the five part that happens along with being creative but I just a maker at heart maker. If, I didn't have this I probably be a crafter or. Someone at home like gluing things to get. Definitely have. Creative. Brain and five and like. You know you remind me of the quote unquote the phrase bias for action like you see that on a lot of people's by like. Like I love meeting people who really epitomized that because when you think of an idea, you're like Oh let me let me so I had this. Thought those product together. But before we get into the business as a little bit where are you from like how? Up Bridges Lewis's creative Well, Wa was born raised in Washington DC and I currently live in Maryland but it was partly because of my parents so. You know like most parents you know their idea of they were coming raised with the idea that she would come trade and I'm going to get a government job or something more steady. You know engineer doctor lawyer or something like that But my father kind of wanted us to go into a different direction in. So he kinda pushed us into the arts. Okay. So from a age I would say like eight or nine I always had eager to draw actively or play an instrument actively So. I played the cello. for about eight years amongst other instruments but kind of my heart was in art. So I kind of chose that as a thing I wanted to do. So I did art all through high school until school and then graduated went to these you in Richmond and gut graduated with a BFA. What I didn't realize was that I, didn't really have a plan for my life. And it wasn't like that in college I was like wait. So I'm supposed to like pain control like has wanNA. Make money. Like never even dawned on me that I'd like need a job I love. And so this is around the time that. kind of the DOT com boom had happened. So I learned fairly easily how to design websites and so that kind of kind of figuring out the creative side always had was able to keep a job based on the web design skills that I saw graduated with a BFA. Like I said. With his huge creative background but my but but my day job was web design So that kind of got me into building websites, understanding design understanding how the Web, works, understanding marketing. Social, media and and all that fun stuff and that led me into blogging. Okay. So then because I would get, I would feel questions about the blogging, hosting in how to set up a website and so I put blog. Okay. I'll put a blog. And I'll get all these affiliate links and click. Well. You know I figured out the system and I was making like a passive income about a thousand dollars a month and I was like, wow okay. If I had this thousand dollars a month bright IF I sell a product than I probably can like take another thousand dollars. and. So And for launched, I ended up launching capital. because. Capital city, we sell a wing sauce called capital city Mumbo sauce, and both of is in A. Wing sauce that we originally created is this assaults that you can get here in Washington, DC, metropolitan area
"journal american" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"They they imported a lot sort of extra of the end of two thousand eighteen because they thought the tariff's gonna go up in late two thousand eighteen and then they thought they were gonna go up again in March and attend out that those increases didn't come to pass because of progress in negotiations between. Zhang in Washington, but that sort of trepidation did cools bit of noise in the trade data, and we saw that in the first quarter that given the fact that imports with down sim aunt they were down three point seven percent, not a three point seven percent rate.
