Who Laps Whom on the Walking Track, Tyrannosaurus Rex or You?
"One has ever seen tarinah source walk. Still movies like jurassic park have guessed how fast it would have done that now. Scientists have used the skeleton of t. Rex to model the bio mechanics of the animals stride and they've estimated its dreaded at a leisurely pace on par with humans. Ostriches elephants and giraffes. And it's not just limited to those animals. Horses gazelles news. Turns out that actually. Most animals don't tend to walk. Superfast pasha von beyeler is a movement. Scientists had variety university in amsterdam. His team studied the skeleton of not. Rex housed in a dutch museum. The specimen nicknamed tricks is exceptionally well preserved. So they were able to. How ligaments would have attached to and linked to the animal's tail bones. Those ligaments they would've acted like rubber bands and the researchers used mathematical modeling to study. How they would have given the tail bounce as the t. rex. The animal could have taken advantage of that natural bouncy rhythm to save energy as it moved that is basically resonance you get more movement for less effort if you choose to correct rhythm at which you do things so that helped estimate the beat which t rex would have pounded its feet but to determine speed. They still needed to know how far each step was and to do that. We found fossilized track way of a slightly smaller through sword. Skilled it up to the size of our t. rex and that gives you a step length. Multiple is step length by step rhythm and you get a speed of one point two eight meters per second or about two point nine miles per hour. The results were published by the royal society. Von bildt says he's seen a lot of headlines stating that humans could have outpaced t rex. Not so he says. Once the animal started running. I guess we should be glad that there's a lot of time between us and t-rex
‘We Could Probably Build Jurassic Park,’ Says Co-Founder of Neuralink
"Firm Neural Link says they have the technology to build a real life version of Jurassic Park. Real life version. Let's go, guys. He was Max Hodak. He tweeted We could probably build Jurassic Park if we wanted to wouldn't be genetically authentic dinosaurs. But maybe 15 years of breeding, plus engineering to get super exotic novel species. He's not talking about machines he's talking about somehow genetically breeding animals that look like dinosaurs. Hey, didn't elaborate on how the neuro technology company might be able to retrieve the long extinct prehistoric beasts. But he later champion the idea, claiming that it would increase biodiversity. So this
Ford's New Rocket League Sponsorship is Perfect
"Besides the racing games which are a natural fit for car brands. There's one sport that made such a natural Fit For A brand sponsorship. I can't believe it took so long. It took it League yesterday Ford announced they're putting the Ford F-150 into the game. It's the first time a consumer-facing vehicle has been added to the game. So consumer-facing a key part of that. What does that mean rocket league has brought in a ton of different cars from media Universe has many of which are tied to actual Brands. You know, the Batmobile doesn't have a brand behind in the Dodge Charger is in game. So is Nissan's are thirty-four and so it's a Jeep, but the first two of those cars were tied to Fast and Furious DLC pack and they're based on old school cars for the charger it wage. 1968 and 1970 and the Nissan was based on the car from 1999 used by Brian O'Connor. The jeep was from Jurassic Park. So it's not like you can just buy these cars at a lot down. There was one other car that wasn't tied to a media franchise in rocket League's history. And that car is the McLaren starting at two hundred grand though. The McLaren is not a consumer car because it's a Subaru targeted at high-end customers. I'd wager to say maybe five people who play rocket League can afford a McLaren. Maybe that's generous Ford's F-150 is clearly different. The Ford F-series is the best selling Truck Series in North America nearly a million truck sold in 2019 when it comes to marketing you Market a Ford F series truck a lot differently than a new market a McLaren which is why it's fair to say. This is the first consumer-facing car that's existed in rocket League. What I think is really cool about the sponsorship. It says made up of a bunch of different parts first off the car inches the game great start it'll be available for purchase from February 22nd to the 28th. Then forward will also be a sponge for the upcoming rlcs winter major at the end of February that we taking over the in-game Billboards, which I still believe are a massive white space for sponsors Ford is also releasing a new ad around this partnership with the coolest part of that ad is that will be voiced by Bryan Cranston, you know the star of Breaking Bad also the dad from Malcolm in the Middle. Shout out to help crested also did for Superbowl at this year just to give you an idea about how much Ford is investing in the sponsorship and there's a final piece of a too which is also really cool Ford is hosting a freestyle competition people unfamiliar with rocket League freestyling is when you send your car turning like crazy to overcomplicate a goal in search of a sick clip, it's really popular on YouTube. It's doing tricks like flip resets double Taps Turtles and any other way to make a gold look really cool for it'll be inviting 8 freestyle rap. Our competition and the winner will receive an actual Ford F-150. Those are the kinds of small details that really make a brand sponsorship in Esports stand out to me. It shows an underscore the audience and the content that works with this audience as well. I really think this is the car sponsorship the rocket league has been raped for four years with the increased Esports investment from Brands like Toyota Honda BMW Mercedes and plenty more. I really can't believe it took this long, but good on Ford for finally making it
Pablo Escobar's Hippos Are Out of Control
"A couple of years ago. I read a novella called river of teeth by sarah gaily. The concept of the story is based on a real world event. That almost happened smack. In the early twentieth century a bill was proposed in the us house of representatives and informally supported by theodore roosevelt. The us should import hippopotamuses from africa to the swamp lands of the gulf coast and breed them as an alternative meat source for americans basically starting a new industry in the us of hill. Ranching as you know this proposal never came to be but gala novella now collected into a volume with a sequel and some other stories under the title american hippo imagines magic in alternative history where this did happen only set fifty years earlier. You get kind of gulf coast cowboys on hippos tape story. It's great loved it. I highly recommend it. Or if you just wanna dig more into the facts. I put link in the show notes to a long read on the history of the hippo proposal by john. Mouallem will the reason i bring. This up is because americans in the early twentieth century. Were not the only ones with dreams of becoming hbo ranchers decades later pablo escobar would also get into the hippo game importing four of them to live on his estate in columbia and now forty some years later they have bread and multiplied and are spreading all over the wetlands of north bogo. Talk causing mayhem. Consternation and some real concerns for the region. Scientists say this now invasive species is competing with native wildlife polluting local waterways attacking humans and they project will grow in number two fifteen hundred hippos by twenty forty at that point the scientists say they will be nearly impossible to control their environmental impacts will be irreversible but never mind controlling fifteen hundred hippos. How do you control a dozen or even just one. That's not like you can just google it you know. In colombian officials are not hippopotamus experts and there are unique challenges levied upon this specific situation. I quoting the washington post in their natural habitat. Hippos spend the long dry season crowded into waterways shrunk to puddles. They're vulnerable to disease and predation not to mention one. Another as bad tempers but tropical columbia is hippo paradise. Environmental agency researcher david vary lopez said rain is abundant food is plentiful and they're no carnivores large enough to pose a threat. The animals spend five hours a day grazing on grasses and the rest of their time basking in the cool waters of the magdalena and surrounding lakes and quotes report from columbia not being the hippos natural habitat having in effect on the hippos behavior it also affects the surrounding communities impression of the hippos. The officials tasked with dismantling escobar's estate back in the ninety s. Weren't sure what to do with the one male and three female hippos so they just let them roam instead of sending them to a zoo with his other animals and mostly they did that because the hippos were massive and aggressive no one really wanted to approach them so we'll get the harm be and letting them go well. Kenyans and other african communities with native hippo populations could tell you a whole heck of a lot. You've got hippos from each sex so they can breathe for one and they're also hugely destructive to the environment into other animals. Hippos killed more humans each year than other large mammal. But when you don't grow up around hippos you don't necessarily know that so the hippos have become something of a mascot and columbia. According again gift shops in nearby puerto trail info sell hippo keychains and t shirts at the amusement park that was built on the site of escobar's former pleasure palace. Visitors can tour the lake where several dozen hippos now live occasionally one will plot into a nearby community looking as blase as a shopper on his way to the grocery store the hippopotamuses. The town pets resident claudia. Patricia camacho told the local news in two thousand eighteen. You could say that he now takes to the streets as if it were his own and quote but the hippos aren't as friendly as they may look on t shirts. They terrorize farms and hurt residents at times. The government has ordered the hippos to be shot on sight but there's been pushback from animal rights organizations and local residents so then they tried putting the hippos in a pin but and this is one of the mini quotes from this article. That honestly sounds straight hundred jurassic park. Etcheverry said i didn't know they could jump hikes so then they tried big pens with high enough walls that the hippos can't jump onto them. They've also been focused on trying to prevent them from breeding by cuisine. And then castrating the males. They've been through a steep hippo anatomy learning curve on that front though. Not even being sure where to look. For the animals external reproductive organs turns out. It's a bit complicated. They finally got a system of castration down. But it's costly and complicated so they can only do about one year but the estimates are that the population grows ten percent a year and apart from the bodily harm humans and the destruction of farms the hippos as they multiply host of other problems quoting again. A twenty twenty study of hippo inhabited lakes found that nutrients from the animal's feces were fuelling huge. Plumes of area an algae. These intern reduced the oxygen content of the water. Making it toxic to fish.

"Yeah. Exactly. I get really is an Alpha and Omega situation. So we'll see exactly how it's GonNa play here's the jury doc grant Dennis Ned Dri the delap a story I don't like them sitting next to the jury that killed Dennis Net. DRI The bloodsucking lawyer. Chaos N himself John Hammond. WHO Just impressive that he made the merge usually that's a pre merged boot, right? Yeah. He had an idol actually in papa bear spot. A grant it's real it's happening as he waddled through the jungle. Yeah. Arnold one armed Arnold Muldoon clever girl to make it this far, and one of the to velociraptor squeaked into the jury booth, and of course, the most recent member of the jury is the mosquito in. let's find out what's going to happen next if we proceed, are we going to see the votes? I, don't believe. So in Cairo well, let's find out what's going on I believe they're going to they're going to reveal the votes one by one K., L. E. Sadler, she has to give her final speech. But since it's Laura dern and that she sort of like mumbles that very quietly and everyone has to lean into here her especially the dinosaurs. What is it God? Creates Man Yeah Jeff Goldblum. Provide. Man Creates God God creates woman woman inherits survivor Jurassic Park. I believe that's how the phraseology goes. That she's giving. Timmy is about to give a speech, but everybody roll up their windows. Don't can't erase to say. And Try Sarah Lacina tops gives a very riveting. A. Everyone's crying in the Yes tears being shed. Let's find out who is the winner of survivor Jurassic. Park. I Costa a Tim. Tim K. Second.

"So basically, the lawyer is sort of sticking on on his own because up to this point, the current top six of had an alliance basically against Ian Malcolm said enough is enough. Let's get the age out of here and now the lawyers sort of striking out on his own he has immunity and he says I'm for my own firm here it's Genero and triceratops, and so two that are arguably the safest in this final six vote are going to vote together here. Look at how how far the lawyer has has gone. With without. Without, worrying about triceratops anymore. Exactly, he survives in the book he's a big character in the book. So so this could be interesting though because now this this is a pair obviously, Tim and ray are a pair if Elliott Sadler and the Isley and and yeah, I mean listen you look at them and you see an obvious pair. If Elliott amber are able to work together. Here we could see a two two tie. All right well, and it sounds like there's been a ton of ties this season, right? Yeah I mean let's let's just high another one on there. All right let's see. Okay. Let's go to tribal council very exciting events. Final six GENERO is immune. The mosquito has an idol. Ambra has an idol and Try Sarah Lacina also has legs advantage. So let's see what's going to happen here. The amber has the idol try Sarah has the legs advantage. And is going to use the late manage. So it makes sense. It's GonNa like hobble up there because again it is still very sick. Yeah. It's really impressive that the Sarala in the in the game still because. The triceratops was doing. So undressing part. Yeah. I mean even imagine that like due to how many challenges that the diagnose loss initially like it would be clear weak link but I think there was just so much going on with the T. Rex finding idols and the piece of shit being there. That basically triceratops was able to escape by relatively unscathed. Yeah. Okay. So That's going to happen. Let's see the votes away. Our GonNa play an idol on Tam well NBA is is is putting an idol on Tim interesting move here because the amber had really not been in an alliance with him. I don't know if ambrose looking out for Tim knows what their votes coming way in. Tim Sees the future, right? Tim Is the best of us. So we have two children our future. Did that. Yeah exactly. Am Amazing. Okay. So what a shock again so now half the tribe is immune right now. So it means either ray Elliott Sadler or mosquito who ends up playing the idol on tim rather than herself or himself or itself is going to go here. All right knowing the tradition of brand steals the grant steel will probably get rid of hammer here. So let's let's read the votes I boat Timmy does. Good to read. Second vote goes to Tammy does not count. Their..

"I think it I think it's become real Freddie, Krueger style I just. Had to call you because you're just you're in it. You were in my dream me. Yes. So I have like podcast all the time, but this one, this one felt different because we have this is actually like in this exact same setup where you called me up and you said, I'm doing a podcast about Jurassic Park to talk about the Patriot the post show recaps patriotic which. com slash Patriot or or portion we've got dot com slash Patriot or patriots dot com slash post show recap where there's three different tiers that people can sign up for you get a podcast feed for patrons only you can get that at the five dollar level at the ten dollar level you get access to the discord at the fifteen level you're earning your way towards a hat you must decide that a lot actually because that was like beat for beat how it was in my dream dead but you said you were podcasting with Robert About Jurassic Park and he had to step away to deal with an issue and so you know I stepped in there as an understudy I so. Eloquently compared myself to the lost World Jurassic Park, and then we talked about that a little bit because that was actually the first Jurassic Park movie that I saw a surprisingly. So then we talked a bit about like just how awesome of a movie it is I won't go into it because drastic park is an awesome movie and you know that and I know that and we talked about some of the characters and then you said something along the lines of like, Hey, we should come up with a brand steel of survivor season for drastic park and we called it a grant steal because we thought that was a funny ha ha then we started talking about all these things about. What the idols be, what but the shelters be is living in a car typically car curse and I remember that we actually went to the website and we did the damn thing because we're both such audacious individuals particularly when it comes to brand steals and so we made a grant steel survivor Jurassic Park Josh, it was ten humans against ten dinosaurs and we played out the season of survivor. Okay this is really similar to the dream that I just had a which long story short basically everything that you described up to creating grant steel happened, and then some other crazy stuff happened with me. But in your dream, we actually played out the grant steel. Yeah. Is Did we have some sort of like weird shared re like we're driving next to each other on the highway and then like fast and furious seven style went one direction and then you went another one I'll tell you all about it when I see you again, which is right now. That's really weird. Is it possible that we're still dreaming? I mean it's always the dream to podcast with you. I mean quite possibly because we got really really into this brain steel, I mean like I said are sorry grant stale it started off Dyno's versus humans I did millennials vs genetics because this is a battle of generations tending lay right this prehistoric versus modern day I divided them into tribe is based on the suffixes and prefixes of the sequel. So we had the loss world tribe we had the fallen kingdom tribe we had the three tribe and. Three. Yeah exactly and then. We had the dominion tribe but crease swap the dyno's got wiped out Greeleyville mailer. They lost every single challenge but there was still like some craziness going on as these diagnose, we're sort of asserting their place like the first episode there was a tie vote and unfortunately the first the first one out who you would have had to interview was the triceratops giant.

"Dr Grant Steel Doctor that he would have to play in it right because I feel like if you look at the first, the first movies cast alone like I? Feel like there's there's probably in barely enough human characters versus dino character. So you could really see who reigns supreme like I feel like it's tough to say which one dominates because the dinas usually tear apart some of the humans, but it's not like all the humans die in each and every film. So. They've been in a bit of a stalemate resin time survivor season could really determine. I mean Jeff probst loves so determined like the genuine winner of a conflict based on survivor and why not the essential quench question you know could humans or dinosaurs win I feel like the host would have to be Jeff Goldblum but Ian? Malcolm. Is still like a the characteristic character and be sort of his thor ragnarok character yeah. He's sort of an over watcher from that perspective. That'd be incredible I. Think I've had dreams Mike of Survivor doing Jurassic Park theme. So maybe SORTA just rates. It's what would they? Be like fossils or they be pieces of amber. Amber. Shelters would be like the ribcage of a dinosaur I know for edge of extinction, a lot of artwork that people were expecting. More dinosaur based. And there was there was some talk about that but. Survivor has yet to do the dinosaurs may be up to us Mike to do survivor Jurassic Park. So I wonder maybe the shelter can be like in one of those those GPS except eastern crush version that goes by a car curse. That's what you don't WanNa go you don't WanNa live inside the away. Josh Yeah Hey I I hate to do this to you especially since rob left you. I mean speaking of huge pile of Shit We've got a bit of an emergency here with Asher. Oh God are you know we're were fine? It's just it's GonNa require a quite a little bit of a lengthy cleanup so I don't WanNa like. Leave you hanging or while. So, is, is it okay if I if I jump off I'm so sorry I. Know We just talked for like fifteen minutes Patrick part you know that's not a podcast at all no, it was really good though Really digging into character in theme. No. You GotTa do what you gotTa do you go in in best of luck to what's going on you in a couple of days we'll. Yeah we'll talk in a couple of days. We're GONNA.

"Comfortable with to support the podcast get access to the patron only podcast feed where we're going to be doing a lot of fun bonus podcasts an-and. Robin, I had talked about doing a podcast that would. Land on October I, which is when we launched the Patriot on that will get people excited about the Patriot on but also. A fun thing to talk about for a while and so we were gonNA do a drastic park podcast. Everyone. Loves Park, of course. But he had to go and. And his his schedule's so busy that I don't know if he was going to be able to get a chance to to come back. So I figured if you're around I would add see if you wanted to talk about with me listen I will gladly be the lost world to ROB's OJ. Movie means you're in Malcolm, you're the in Malcolm of podcasting. Listen I do have a very similarly structured face and I do stutter a bit so I guess all the comparable characters that would make the most sense. I would probably rather talk about Arnold Schwarzenegger in King Lear, which was seen in a blink and you missed it gagging that movie and the outright loss world. But if we're talking about the G. Jurassic Park film known that came after it, I am willing to make a meal out of that you're putting a goat right in front of me and Unlike the t rex going for it and you're going for. All right okay. So We can. We can just start I was before I was talking with Robert like some of his memories of of drastic parks we could start there. What are what are your memories of Drastic Park? What's your experience like with this? You know groundbreaking piece of pop culture I mean it's interesting because we just mentioned the loss world which started the comparable situation to the pile of triceratops shit. In terms of sequels but I that was actually the first Jurassic Park movie that I saw because the original drastic park came out when I was four years old and despite the lovable dinosaurs that were gracing the screens during that period, you know parents might have pushed the boundaries of bent by having me see the Sitcom dinosaurs. But that's about as far as we went in terms of me engaging with prehistoric creatures. Earl Sinclair doesn't show up in drastic park you I would imagine..

"I feel like I feel like that. You even by twenty twenty standards, you could go back and watch Jurassic Park and you would still feel like Oh man all of that all that still really works Yeah. I mean there's a reason why they keep you're making people still like to see dinosaurs and have you. Watched the sequels drastic. World's I have had them on I don't think I've ever sat through them uninterrupted. Have your kids check drastic park yet they watch a lot of lego Jurassic Park. What happens Lego Jurassic Park people get eaten by dinosaurs I mean it's the same thing always happens drastic part somebody thinks like, Hey, this is a good idea Let's let's make up park with dinosaurs. Then the dinosaurs inevitably get out it's a tale is oldest time. I don't know why people keep going back to the well on this idea, it's never once worked out. Well, let's have a zoo for dinosaurs. How would you do if you were running for dinosaurs? I would shut it down. You Start I was shut it down. Batman? Maybe I'd have like only baby dinosaurs that would be cute. But at the point where you know you're like, Hey, now let's make the T. Rex. No, no. You make the stegosaurus. Brontosaurus. Only make the plant eating dinosaurs. Yeah. Like, Hey, should we make the king of the reptiles? No No. Let's. Let's you know what? Maybe that season two let's start with triceratops maybe. Yeah. It Stage one it's. The one point though is the plan eaters maybe the two point Oh. Yeah. The meeting then maybe make a PTERODACTYL. Set. That would be cool and then last would be even though I am a raptors fan of the basket. Heard. Yeah. Maybe Raptors and then last step would be I. don't even know why you need one. So, let's say like your John Hammond's age. So you're an older man. You know you've been thinking about doing something great ambitions likes drastic park your entire life. Let's say you have the audacity to not only. Record podcasts on audacity but you have the audacity to create plant eating dinosaurs meat eating dinosaurs, Would you would you then believe that you'd have the audacity to invite your family members to Jurassic Park? Dominic and Anthony's children you bring them at that point in the future to Jurassic Park is an old man. See. This is a hard sell for me because I think that as as as the grand parents that I think that. All grandparents that they love grandchildren because then they leave, they're basically they like the perks of having kids like, Oh, well, I love them and then they go home and that's why you know grandparents want grandchildren that they want your grandparents. Yeah. It's like, Hey, here's this I get all the good and then you take them, you change the diapers do all the. All the bad stuff. They they go. Home. That's the ideal. So. It's really if I was the other people working at Jurassic Park I would not want. A great I work for this guy, and he's bringing the whole family, and now we have to all play with the grandkids now at Jurassic Park and you know that they're running around the place Timmy's like Hey Newman one day I'm going to own this whole place. You love to me though. I mean of the two kids. This timmy and there's lacks Lexus Lexus Q. She's a computer hacker. Today. Yeah yes Not a lot of twelve year old computer hackers. She was MS robot before Mister Robot. Yeah, yeah. And then you have her brother Timmy the less popular of the two Jurassic Park..
Some Dinosaurs Probably Nested in Arctic
"Those vicious predatory dinosaurs that tended to be fairly small as six to nine ten feet. Long snout to tail there. Certainly in the Jurassic. Park movies the things that terrorize people Anthony Fiorello a paleontologist at southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas for more than two decades. Now, Fiorello has been digging a dinosaur fossils, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. So one of the fundamental questions about dinosaurs in Alaska. In the ancient Arctic is, did they live there all year round did they migrate? How did they get their a recent discovery sheds light on those questions this fossil that's the subject study is a baby dinosaur, the baby predatory dinosaur, and it is a baby. It's not just juvenile and given the size estimate of this thing. This probably was not far from where the nesting ground was. So this is the first physical proof. Alley some dinosaurs nested in the ancient Arctic some of the first Arctic dinosaur remains ever found were discovered back in the nineteen sixties in Svalbard, an archipelago north of mainland Norway. Since then researchers have theorized, the dinosaurs must have migrated to avoid deeply cold winters but Fiorello says this new discovery disproves that idea for you know the classic stereotype for dinosaurs is that had been. that they were living in sub tropical environments oftentimes, somewhat swampy if you look at various artwork over generations, that was quite often how these dinosaurs were reconstructed. In reality the climate north of Alaska's Brooks range seventy million years ago was similar to what we might see today in Portland, Oregon or Calgary Alberta. Certainly a place where. Things were cooler. Or who were capable of being cool at times but certainly warmer than the the Arctic today, the fossil find is a piece of jawbone with a tooth from Dromaeosaur Fiorello and colleagues unearthed it along the banks of the call. They'll river not too far from the Arctic Ocean. The bone is the first non dental evidence of that species in the far north the researchers report their discovery in the journal plus one. Of course questions remain. How did they do what they did because even with the warmer temperatures at the latitude, the thieves dinosaurs were living, which is at least seventy degrees north if not even farther nor. Do they endure long periods of light and dark, and that's where the research will go next for now Fiorello says the new discovery proves that these giant reptiles were well adapted to the highly seasonal environments of the late Cretaceous that we still experience today in the Arctic.
Peacock is live: Heres everything you need to know
"He caught. The last of the big streaming services has finally launched nationwide, but at joint a crowded room, streaming services, including busy, plus and that Blix. So how does this stack up? I'm Roger, Chang into your daily charge. Beckley I don't have to answer that question because with me. Is Our media expert, John? Salzman and software services. Reviewer Alison. Danisco, welcome both you. Thanks all right so John with you. He is live after having launched in Beta mode to caucus users a couple months ago, so so give us a land now. What is the streaming wards landscape? Look like this is basically the last of the big new services to land at least as far as we know. We had apple and Disney plus come in November than we had depending if you consider it bigger. Bigger not clubby came in April followed by Hbo Max in May, and now finally we have peacock, and it's a little bit different than the rest of those, because it not only is, it has big budget originals big back catalog, like most of those other services do, but it's also doing some other things that are digging a little bit when the others I it has. It's going to have live news. Life sports other sorts of news and sports replays highlights that kind of thing and crucially has a free tear at as a tier with advertising we can watch about two thirds of the catalog just by signing up and not paying anything there are ways you can take out the ads and unlock the full catalogue if you WanNa pay, but having that sort of on ramp that free just sign up and start watching thing. It's something that these other big services in the streets haven't tried yet. Yeah, I would just sort of generally speaking. Have we talked about the free cheering a bit but? In terms of these other players out there have any cover merged as must have service to rebel Netflix's certainly a streaming service, the new streaming service that's landed with the biggest slash by far is Disney plus. One media analyst when it launched last year there was one media analyst and widely followed one who called it one of the greatest product launches of all time. To give you a sense. Track Google search trends around these launch dates, and the Google search trends for Netflix are a good baseline. You know it's established. It's always very popular as a search gives you a good baseline of how other services stack up and people, search addressed most of these other services. They haven't crossed the level of net search interest, even on launch days, whereas Disney plus like quadrupled the amount of Netflix interests on its launch day now it's come down since then, but among these new services Disney is the one to beats, and nobody has even come close so far. Are also you've been testing out the service. How has the experience on Peacock Ben? Overall I've been having a really positive experience with peacock so far to be honest. I wasn't expecting all that much. Since we do already have Sumani streaming services, but the fact that it has this free tier is John mentioned where you can still watch. Tons of movies and TV shows with ADS does make it stand out from competitors like Netflix and Hulu it gives you something for free that similar to say a Pluto TV or a to B, but with this premium streaming. Streaming service interface, so it looks really good, and you also have the opportunity to upgrade if you want to. It's pretty easy to navigate. It has a few quirks, and there are some features that are still missing but overall. It's a solid free surface at launch. If you don't mind watching those ads in terms of that that user experience that the navigation the experience itself. How does it stack up against DISAPP- loss or Netflix's or some other more Polish premium services so in. In my mind, peacock isn't quite trying to be a Netflix or Hulu or HBO Max. It has a similar tile layout, and you can browse things by TV shows and movies and get recommendations, but it's kind of doing something different, and it's probably not going to replace any of those others for you, but it's something you can get for free to have more options. It reminds me a little bit of Amazon prime video in a way like on that one you can get. Get, a lot of shows and movies included as part of your prime subscription, but you'll find others mixed in that. You do have to pay for so on peacock. You'll find some shows with a little purple feather in the corner, which means you have to upgrade premium to watch them, but they're so plenty of free options to. And since we're in this time of economic uncertainty, you know free services a welcome option, even if you don't watch it every single day, right? Joan. Beyond this free tier is there anything else about peacock that makes stand out, or the folks should know about? Yeah, definitely, the frontier is obviously the first thing that people are going to encounter when they try to sign up and they realize they don't have to provide any sort of payment information. Start watching. But beyond that you know. Being in the pandemic, there's a lot of things that peacock wanted to have available right now for its launch that aren't a manifest really until next year or later, for example, the entire reason that it's launching right now in the middle of July is that originally peacock witches, NBC's streaming service thought they'd be able to piggyback on all the interest in the Olympics. That should be happening right now. Is the broadcasting partner for the Olympics in the United States, and so of course everyone remembers every Olympic season how there's just like blanket coverage on NBC. All of NBC's other cable channels. But because we don't have that until next year, that's a huge driver to get people interested and knowledgeable that that the service exists. That just doesn't exist right now. Also their originals. They have nine original series at launch, but just like everybody else all their production of new content. At least any live action content had to be suspended in March, and so they don't have as much in their pipeline. That's going to be ready to release win. They had hoped to release it as have if we weren't in this situation where everybody's lockdown the also could you break down the? Tiers, obviously, there's the free cheer that's at basement. What are you getting with those I? Think there's two different paid tears. He kinda run through them. And you actually get sure so in the free tear you get thirteen thousand hours of TV shows, Movies News Life Sports. Some of the biggest name shows you'll find. There are and Recreation, Thirty Rock, law and order. Order Svu but you know. Some of those are also currently on Netflix and Hulu to so there's some confusion there potentially, and you also know that the office won't be coming to peacock until January when it's calm when his contract with Netflix runs out, but in the meantime you'll also find current episodes of NBC shows one week later on that free tier. In terms of movies, you've got some big slightly older hits like Jurassic Park the Bourne identity, the Matrix and also newer kind of Oscar Z. ones like phantom thread and tally, and so for something. That's free. You'll probably find something. You WanNa Watch, but then you'll also find these two paid tears. One is five dollars a month which gives you access to the full Peacock Library which is about twenty thousand hours of TV, and movies, but you'll still see ads on that one. If you WANNA GO AD free. It costs ten dollars a month and you'll get still get that full libraries well. A few things you'll find on the premium tears, but not the free tier are all of the episodes of peacock originals, the major one launch being brave new world, and you'll also find more new movies and also next day access to new episodes of current. NBC shows one interesting thing that we haven't really seen before is that you'll get early access to some shows like late night with Seth Meyers and the tonight show. Show with Jimmy Fallon the night that they air, so you can watch them at eight PM instead of eleven thirty pm, but that would actually start until those shows are back in the studio and not running from home during the pandemic. Okay We've talked about this before, but they're just too many strips out there. They're all asking for money. Yes, peacock has a free tier, but there's clearly they want people to. Upgrade to these premium tears. How does market support so may services Comey Services? Can a household actually afford to pay for so from the experts that I've talked to and the research that they've been doing? It seems like there's a couple of interesting things going on one is that the total number of streaming services that people are subscribed to and are trying is going up now. That's partially because in the. The pandemic so many entertainment choices that we normally would that normally would keep us from streaming aren't happening right now, and we're all locked up in our homes, and so it's the primary way other than regular TV. Your needs that you would entertain yourself when you're stuck at home anyway, that's to do with it, but even before the pandemic. We were starting to see that all. This wave of new services what starting to tap higher, the amount of services people were trying and also subscribing to. But what we've found in the pandemic from the research that I've seen as that people are also much more willing to cancel subscriptions so. It's mostly price sensitivity factor as you know. Jobless numbers are soaring, and as people are reconsidering howl. They dedicate their money every month. Once they hit the point where a free trial ends or this ends. They're more willing to quit. Because they become more educated on other options that don't require payment that conserve their entertainment needs, you know. Alison, she mentioned to be There's other ones like that. That are free services that peacock sort of straddles the line with people are realizing that they have those options to if they don't WanNa, keep paying
"jurassic park" Discussed on The Culture Quest
"Who Walk onto the word and light, they'll be like all the causes is going to be A. Crash into the barrier you just be like, God let me verify this conversation. Back, into Jurassic Park. So the second theme like the second main theme there's a lot of things in this movie, but the second big theme to me was the theme parenthood and like if the first theme, the man over nature theme was mostly mostly examined by comparing Hammond and Malcolm. I think this one is examined by grants growth throughout the movie and by someone comparing his character to to the other ones and like from the first time we meet grant and Sadler there's a question of parenthood between them like the. From the first scene, we see them grant is seen as this guy who hates kids who calls them smelly and a waste.
Computer Vision for Remote AR with Flora Tasse
"Art Everyone. I'm here with flora. TASSEZ flora is head of computer, vision and AI research at stream accompany that she joined through the acquisition of another company which she co founded Salerio. Flora welcome to the trauma. Is podcasts Jake you sound sufficient to the thanks for the right Lahser to have you on the show and I'm really looking forward to digging into your recent CV, PR, presentation you did a keynote at the a are VR workshop. I was to see that. There is enough happening at the intersection of AR, VR and machine learnings A workshop at CPR on that topic. Don's happening. This is happening. That's face. Sabatini could smoke shop. Yeah, well, you can tell us all about that, but before you do please share a little bit about your background and how you got started and computer vision how you came to found scenario. Stream love to hear all of it. That's like that. That would be a long story, but I'll try to shut down. So I was born in raise in Cameroon, so Cameroon is in this central is in central Africa and what we saw in the city of Wella, and so I was raised in day. Fred, picking politic country, so you might notice that for my accent. Some French in the and. Yeah so from a very early age, I was very much into special effects in movies and more precisely, Jurassic Park so I was a big fan of the of the movies because of the Daniels. Our seed that disclosed TV steering into dinosaurs and wondering. How can it be like? Why is it so real and I? Asked my dad like. How can they make these extinct creatures look so stick, and then he said Graphics Sack Okay Yeah? That's what I'm GONNA do. That's. My perfect dream you know making the impossible become possible. So fast forward. A few years I did my bachelor mats in the English, speaking parts had to learn English English and then move and did Matt's because I couldn't. They had no causing computer science, so then move out of the country to Africa where I did a master in in Cape Town. In South Africa. Yup was amazing. I recommend. Is a great vacations. And I did my Masters Dad then came to Cambridge for my PhD okay, so twenty twelve arrive in the UK already to make my dreams come true. And so those if needed I a good experience so at. Cambridge I was working at. Had you take a real things in images and turn them into treat content, so I was doing some shape retriever ship analysis from images, and you have to image, and you want to turn into a three D. Shape exactly yeah, that's exactly what I was doing. So far yes, or Trinity Half Years I stumbled upon like a great discovery that if you actually incorporate. And then P. So, if you incorporate language information, you can basically get really really accurate results going from twenty two treaty, and so the addition of that. Yeah so. So, the concept was developed and just looking at images as just. Pixel that you can enter into some features and use calcification on them. Was a concept that those features can actually be semantic features so there's some semantic meaning attached to those descriptors that you are. Thank generating.

Chromosomes... What are they?
"We're talking about genetics. We're talking about chromosomes. We're talking about A lot of things that you have a history working in so can you tell our listeners? A little bit about your history and your history professionally and sort of what what you have actually been studying what you've been working on. Yeah sure the so. The main reason I'm here is back back when you first met me. I was working on my undergrad degree. Which was in biology with Canova sub specialty in genetics So that was the first step and then after graduation. I decided that I wanted to do with a was get into testing on the clinical side of things As a job so I spent another year and a half doing coursework mostly to focus on those lab techniques and things like that and had to take my professional certification exam technically I'm ASEP. American Society of Clinical Pathology certified as a molecular biology. Which means I can do. Dna testing well and other molecular level testing But the specific site where I was working for about four years. Was Genetics lab in Boston. Where they did a variety of testing clinically for a variety of genetic disorders. They did some DNA sequencing mostly what I did you correctly remembered when we were speaking before. The podcast is what I was testing for. Was Major chromosomal abnormalities. That you can see without sequencing. A lot of the major six comes on normalities that cause many intersex traits that you mentioned fall into that category. And now when you say sequencing just because I honestly don't know what that means but I've heard it in movies I've heard it to me What what is sequencing DNA sequencing? So typically in your cell's DNA exists in a very very condensed form right because there's a lot of it. There are tons and tons and tons of base pairs that read off all the proteins that your body needs so it's usually very very condensed. So what sequencing means is that you are kind of teasing that out and reading one base pair of your Danny at a time in the sequence whereas what I did was more honestly higher level where we looked at chromosomes which are special versions of that contains DNA where you can see kind of like a bigger chunks of genetic material missing. But you're not going base pair by base pair. One at a time can okay. Now I think the the big question that my listeners are going to want to know the answer to is so does that mean that you could clone dinosaurs. I remember you had time. I mean I know the answer to this when our audience doesn't pull the whole who I directly understand the process but I don't think I should so it's not that you can't it's that you shouldn't. You're doing the thing that Dr You'd welcome said correctly. Which is they? You are in fact following what he is. He's trying to say. Which is that you asked you asked could you but then you ask should you said probably yeah. Yeah okay. So since we brought up Dr Malcolm Jurassic Park. I'm curious if there is any media that you've consumed that represents whether accurately reportedly The field that you have worked in the field that you are currently working. Oh boy there's a whole range to be honest. I I love to talk about them and provide a reading list and I'm trying to think about I mean. Usually usually they have it right on some level but then there's some level of detail that's either missing or a little bit inaccurate. There's only so much that you can understand a someone who's just like picking up reading books as opposed to actually devoting time to learning learning it right. I mean that could be. But also there's only a certain level of it that functions in your fiction. I think part of it to you. You know you can utilize it up to a certain level but it's important that everything in your story is cohesive. Don't WANNA I don't know too much detail. I think in a lot of cases so and I think especially with fiction. You WanNa make sure that you're building the world enough but at a certain point especially because it's fixing fiction. It's just like well at some point. I've gotTa Tell an interesting story or I'm just going to write a book of Nonfiction About Gene Simmons. Which that that. That is a book. I read fairly recently.

Fossilized Proteins Unravel Dinosaur Mysteries
"Now we have Gretchen Vogel a staff writer for Science sheer talk with us about a new technique for looking at organic molecules user from animals from fossils from way back we're talking hundreds of millions of years Hi Gretchen Hi Sarah is that number right is it hundreds of millions of years for these molecules correct yes the oldest ones they've around our five hundred or a little bit more than five hundred million years old who and how does that compare with ancient DNA or proteins from ancient animals yet much much older so into DNA has a huge amount that it can tell us about previous life yeah animals and humans but only up to tens of thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of years DNA sequences degrade fairly rapidly relatively speaking proteins can last longer two four million years or so elbows can also give you lots of information if you can sequence the proteins you can tell lots of things about how animals were really needed beyond that some people have claimed to find intact proteins from dinosaurs but those claims have remained controversial well what about these molecules not DNA they're not protein there's something a little bit different correct. They're called protein residues essentially scientists call them protein fossils ation products and they are complex polymers that form from proteins and lipids and sugars after death during the fossils ation process they must be super super tough if they're surviving for so long yes they are they're actually similar to some molecules the you're probably fairly familiar with their formed by reactions very similar to reactions called the my yard reactions that happen in food chemistry so hey time you toast something or round something or grill something molecule similar to these form and they're the kind of things that are left over on your grill that you have to scrub off so anyone who scripted grill knows that these things are pretty tough there definitely not water soluble and yeah microbes don't eat them and they don't wash away this isn't cooking per se but there is a chemical process here that's breaking down all these components of the sal and turning them into something else so how do we know thir identify like what we know about their original four before all these chemical processes happened yeah what the researchers that I'm writing about have discovered word their names are yes me know via N- and Derek Briggs and they work at Yale University and what they found out is that these really tough polymers do still contain some of the original information that the proteins contained when the animal was alive and that's because although there transformed into the he's complex polymers different proteins form different polymers and using a technique called Rahman spectroscopy they can and get a fingerprint of the chemical bonds that are in these polymers and from those fingerprints they can compare different fossils end figure out interesting things about how I'm how those animals might have been related and even things about their metabolism whether they were warm blooded or cold blooded Would they do that. How would they be able to tease out their metabolism from this collection of molecular products? Yeah that's one of the insights that these researchers have had the dispenser the interesting they realized that in living cells similar reactions also take place and the faster an animal's metabolism fast. cell's metabolism the more of these reactions take place and so even during life some of these complex polymers build up in cells and and they realized that the more of them form after death in the fossil station process they could sort of subtract those fossils Russian polymers that had formed and see still a signature of how many of these complex plumbers might have formed during the animal's life. and that gives them a clue about how fast the animal's metabolism was that speed of the metabolism ass- is kind of an indicator if they were warm blooded or cold blooded and we're talking about hundreds millions of years ago so we're talking about dinosaurs correct exactly and people had not suspected but had started to conclude that at least some dinosaurs were probably warm-blooded had a fairly fast metabolism tyrannosaurus rex for example and another kind of dinosaur called Dina Nike's which was the basis for the velociraptor in Jurassic Park that was actually one of the first dinosaurs that inspired the idea that dinosaurs subtly some of them may have been fast runners and had responding fast metabolism and this new technique support those earlier conclusions yes they looked at the Roman Spectra from a whole range of the fossils and it looks like two legged dinosaurs like velociraptor or than an isis or tyrannosaurus rex they had fairly fast metabol- uh-huh and other dinosaurs the quadrupedal ones that walked on all fours and were probably a bit slower that they had much slower metabolisms it looks like the sisters of lizards and snakes were for example cold blooded and fossil mammals turned out to be warm-blooded as did tear sores the largest creatures ever to to live from it sounds like a lot of different specimens have been already examined using this technique. How common are these residues in the different fossils that we have and collections and museums. That's a great question so it doesn't happen in every kind of fossil it's a specific set of conditions that is conducive to the kind of preservation and it turns out that it's sort of dark brown or black fossils in light colored sediments that tend to be aclu and so yes meena human who works at Yale had millions of fossils to look at at the Yale peabody Museum of Natural History and she didn't Dan millions of fossils but more than one hundred and has gone through and built up of fairly significant database of Roman Spectra from a whole range of different fossils do we know why the Dark Brown fossils on a light background tend to have these kinds of molecules that's a sign or that's a a characteristic of oxidative conditions the environment surrounding the animal after died was rich in reactive oxygen mal molecules and dissolved metal ions and that promotes these kinds of biochemical reactions called glide cock sedation and lip pox nation which are big words but they the are the same kinds of reactions that happen when you grill something when you caramelized some okay one I really liked the part of your story you talk about how this is I happened upon can you can you talk about that as an Undergrad Freeman was part of the team that was studying color in dinosaur eggs and she and her colleagues were some of the first defined that some dinosaur eggs were blue green sort of like Robin's egg Johnny people had always thought that they were just white I she was doing this work she would dissolve pieces of fossil eggshells to remove the calcium and to isolate the pigments and she found that they're in some cases Sort of Brown crusty remains as well and she thought hm what is that she looked at it under the microscope and it looked kind of like the organic matrix of eggshells and she wondered if she was seen bits of original tissue but she didn't have time to characterize it until she came to Yale for and there she used a similar technique with pieces of bone or teeth and she found more residues and they even looked like at blood vessels and cells and even nerve actions and she thought what in the world is this so then she and her ht advisor Derek Briggs decided to look at them more carefully Rahman spectroscopy just mean a chose this technique she said because it's one that that is sort of exploratory you don't have to you're not looking for a specific thing it records all the chemical bonds in sample and then you can sort of piece together what it is that you're seeing a lot of biochemical techniques test for specific kinds of molecules but if you don't know what you're looking for then you can't find it and so and this is this is also non-destructive rights you don't have to dissolve your sample right they started out looking at these seduce that had come from destructive sampling but then they realized once they had looked at those they could also look at other kinds of fossils just ramen spectroscopy that doesn't damage the fossil and indeed they found these signs of these complex polymers that mean then recognized as the product of the he's mired reactions that happened in food chemistry oh well are they going to continue to build up this database of profiles and different dinosaurs yes right they're building a database is that can help them compare more fossils with each other they've also done a couple of proof of principle experiments for example they they looked at a fossil called the tully monster which is this really strange creature from three hundred million years ago from fossil beds in Illinois nobody has really been able to determine exactly what kind of thing it was it's it's the sort of oval shape with this long weird appendage and people visit a worm is at some weird nail is it a vertebrate and a paper in nature and two thousand and sixteen concluded that it was most likely probably some kind of really strange vertebrates rush based on morphology when they used the Romans spectroscopy to look at this critters purported teeth that looks like those teeth were probably aide of Collagen or Carrollton which are two kinds of proteins that vertebrates make rather than Titan which would be something that a an in it would make and so that chemical evidence is consistent with the morphological evidence that they had already put together and that was another sign that they're finding L. information in these in these Rahman Spectrum Not Everybody's on board with this get what else could they do to further firm this up has a a new technique for understanding the world of dinosaurs some other researchers cautioned that they're not one hundred percent convinced that all of the signatures that are being picked up these Roman spectra are really from the original animal that there may be some bacteria contamination or some other deposits that might have settled into these fossils for millions of years that's certainly a legitimate question to ask although the men and Briggs say that they have looked bacteria residues and can compare and that they've old those out in most cases they've also looked for contaminants for things like glue or other preparation materials that have been applied to these fossils beeman briggs and their colleagues also say it's early days for this technique they're really excited about the potential that it has but they're hoping that more people start to use it and help to build up the database this is and figure out exactly what kinds of questions these ancient protein residues might help to answer. Are there some big questions at these residues might help answer that people are very excited about people especially excited about this insight into metabolism because that's been a big question in paleontology what animals were warm added what kinds of metabolism's did different animals have for example some of the giant sea creatures did they have a warm lead type of metabolism or were they did they have a slower metabol- awesome or some sort of mix of the to the idea that you could get at some of those questions by a simple non-destructive scan of fossils is really exciting alright. Gretchen thank you so
All About the new 'Jurassic World' short film 'Battle at Big Rock'
"New story that I want to talk about as well which which is a PC guy saying this tomorrow night during these et Jurassic world short film Jomie model at Big Rock which I thought was pretty pretty cool but I don't WanNa hear you guys talk about it. Instead of wanting to hear the guy he made it talk about it. Will you please welcome drastic world and the upcoming world three three and indeed the director all the big. Please welcome ah the I just want to thank all of you. I brought my children tonight so thank thank you for introducing them to many new words. I'm so sorry so many questions to answer wants dinner so yes colon thanks to lay down man for everything you were born so listen this short film by the big rock very very exciting. What can you say about what's what happened is so the universal came to us and asked if I wanted to make a short film with their money and I said yes definitely we can put dinosaurs in it and we'll do it and so we're not enough if any last film at the very end we really just change the franchise? Even is as we said all these dinosaurs loose in the world and so it led us a just think about what that really means and take a bit of a step away from our weaponized dinosaurs hybrids and all these things that we've been doing in these in these movies and really just go back to basics and and make a short film about a family campground who just like anyone who's been camping. Sometimes you see a bear going through your garbage and we replaced that with an ceratops yeah. We we go from there because I I've seen a little short films in my life almost every single one of them stand to have a dinosaur and it's you're not the besmirch short films but this is the dream just take a dinosaur and then you're good we list of films that I think what would have been even more amazed ashamed with films that I want to have a dinosaur in them. All Jess I found that amazing movie with Robert Redford all his lawsuit aw I remember watching it incredible movie and I was so ashamed that about two thirds of the way through there could be a Muslim source would be okay with that. I would be alright Robert Redford versus versus the Mosasaurus all along the money would be the most horse tough you never know he's very resourceful so when this we shot in Ireland in January January of last year and we managed to keep it a secret the Irish keep secret added stars Andre Holland who many US probably seen in castle rock if that's out here in Selma is incredible actor Natalie Martinez who is an end of watch and his amazing amazing actress and these two kids that no one's ever seen before who I love so much it was it was like shooting in movie we had five days and we all had to get together with this pretty. Small Irish crew one set and find a way to do something pretty pretty challenging in a short period of time with not same resources that we're used to and everyone was down at the buffet every morning which there's an excellent buffet at this point this out at this hotel in Ireland that we're we're all in this sweet little girl who was in the in the short had never been in anything before and we asked her you know she her mom called and said Bull. I oh I get I get get first class tickets to come out because you're guaranteed a first class taking per guild rules but she really wants her whole family there. Is there anything you can do and I was like well what I do with my my family is usually we'll just we won't take the first class and we'll fly. Everybody and you can fly business if you do that and so she said great and so this van pulls up and just one one after another ten people baby and grandma everybody get out of the van and they were Swedish. There was amazing BEC- it coat from winter in Philadelphia incredible but I'd love to this is happening. Do you think this might spark a trend. Is this something that you would have loved to done and for the first Jurassic World Yeah it is the result of a you know I think it's because our we don't make three movies a year in our franchise and and and we don't even make one movie a year and we're we're a little more old school and that we every three years and we ask people to come and see a dinosaur movie and so it to be able to have something in the middle because the story that we're about to tell in the next film is so different and so large in scope that it was. I just really wanted to do something that was that was just very intimate and small. There are dinosaurs in it but it's a small intimate dinosaur fight. What can you say about where you are with the next Jurassic World World we are? I live here in England and I've been here for three years and we have our our offices out at studios and we've got everyone. They're carving being dinosaurs out of of clay. I can announce here that I have. If any do saw the dark crystal on Netflix John Nolan who did all the animatronic Dr Crystal is going to do our animatronic for us and so he's bringing starting to actually build things in his workshop and seeing what he's able to do with is Enjoin Movement and he's really innovating a really exciting way speaking emphasis on animatronic again there are large and small and we actually have an animatronic in in battle a big rock that was done by legacy by the guys who you know Stan Winston's group before they all have carried on that tradition so we had this the massive allosaurus in Ireland and so everybody was my wife actually took a video of it that I'm sure I'll I'll tweet at some point because there's so much so much fun and energy behind it and that we finally we had this this massive thing that was sticking its head in and out of this camper van spoilers spoiler now but people and and it just this whole crew was actually watching this thing go down and you really feel like you're you're. You're in Jurassic Park when these things really get going and we play music and we play roars really loud so there's there's no element that isn't you know firing on all all cylinders and it's pretty exciting. Everyone applauded and we we felt like we were there. Outside of course in
Jurassic Park, Nolan And Apollo discussed on Mike McConnell
"These tardigrades are so small they're under a millimeter in size they've been dehydrated and placed in suspended animation in case it implies that they're a case of this a proxy of artificial amber I like Jurassic Park will they have the mosquito Nolan and they should be revival of the future now there is they don't represent the first genetic code or life form to be left on the moon know that they're not the first back when the Apollo missions were going on in the sixties and seventies those missions level DNA and microbes contained in almost one hundred bag of human feces and urine you know just in case anybody want to know what we were full of back in the sixties and seventies anyway the these the these tardigrades they're also known as water bears are piglets they can live in water or on land they are capable of surviving temperatures as high as three hundred and two degrees Fahrenheit and as low as minus four hundred and fifty eight degrees Fahrenheit so anyway everybody's excited in the the NASA program in other space programs around the world if you can't find life on the moon bring some life up there with you or by the way when you're done flush the
How does a pet get cloned?
"Cloning how does that get cloned so the very first step if you are thinking you might potentially you want to call on your pet Sunday that first step is our genetic preservation service and what that involves is a veterinarian taking a few small skin biopsy samples from your pets and if you're planning in advance and it is best to have these biopsies done while the cat is still alive and healthy so if you're planning in advance it's best to order I biopsy kit and we can ship this biopsy can overnight to the veterinarian or to the client and this biopsy kit has everything that the veterinarian needs to take the samples and to ship them to us at the appropriate temperature so it's just a small four millimeter punch biopsy at the skin so very simple every veterinarian the world is that a punch biopsy before so very easy to do it can be done with the local anesthesia or it can be done under general anesthesia if you are planning in advance in the veterinary purse first to do a general anesthesia then you might consider having this done in conjunction with a dental cleaning something like that where the the dog is already under anesthesia so we have a lot of clients that she used to do it at that time so the the vet takes a biopsy samples very small and very minimally invasive or the pet and would like to have anywhere from to try by an overnight with the return and ex label that included in from these tissues are they going to sell culture and we will grow millions of cells that contain that had DNA and the cells will ultimately be the starting point where the cloning process that is absolutely amazing it really sounds like Jurassic Park so hope is it possible to do Jurassic Park dinosaurs are we just doing cats and dogs I should ask what species can be cloned so there are quite a few species clones Bijan pets was originally part of the company that cloned livestock so cattle pigs goats and sheep have been cloned over the past seventeen years and when we began and by Jim Henson equine we now just clone dogs cats and horses so those are the three species that we clone and weeping cloning courses for about seventeen years and dogs and cats for about almost four years and it's it's going very well the cloning is just growing and growing the more people find out about this and then it's a possibility it's really a growing field with cloning I think a lot of people have concerns and I had a lot of questions because it's not as a topic that was really broached when I was in veterinary school so with cloning I know that Dolly the sheep seem to be healthy land a shorter lifespan than a typical sheep of that particular breed what happens for a dog and a cat is there or horse is there a lifespan basically the same physical issues they have can a brief for instance yes all very good questions so in going back to Dolly the sheep the technique that we use for cloning is essentially very much the same as what was used for Dolly many years ago and it is technically called somatic cell nuclear transfer or S. T. and T. so a somatic cell is any cell in the body that's anything other than a sperm or an egg and for dogs and cats and horses the somatic cells all these are what we grow in the culture from the skin biopsies taken from the pet so that somatic cell is that source at the beginning so that process is essentially the same and how the embryo is made and all of the species is how we use that egg from a donor animal and we removed the nucleus of that egg and we transfer in one of the somatic cells from the skin sample and these agonist cell are now fused together in an embryo starts to grow and then we'll transfer that embryo into the surrogate animal for dogs and cats they're a little bit different than the worst because dogs and cats are litter bearing species so we do transfer multiple embryos into that surrogate mom so is there is that chance that there could be twins or triplets said usually small number of puppies or kittens in the later but that is a chance and usually the clients will take as many as are born in the letter and it's just the one let me go back to your question about the longevity of these animals so Dolly did live a shorter lifespan than normal and so there was speculation at the time twenty two years ago that this was because she was a clone animal there's been a lot of research done on cloned animals and stating their longevity and their health over the years and cloned animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan which is really refreshing for a lot of these pet owners because unfortunately Dolly kind of got a bad rap and because she did let us our lives so it is you know it's the sort of the myths surrounding cloning that cloned animals live a shorter lifespan than an average animal and that's simply not true so cloning animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan and should be just as healthy as the original animal now one question that we do get quite often is let's say you know the the original all dog developed cancer will the cloned dog develop cancer great yes that's comes right on it and the answer is it depends on the cause of that cancer so which we don't veterinarians don't usually no it's not really definitive what the causes of most cancers are but if it was something that was shown to be genetically linked type of disease or illness the net cloned animal is going to have those same genes so that same potential to develop that disease at some point in its life it's not automatically going to develop that disease but that potential is there so sometimes the client can know to watch out for symptoms they may see them earlier and your because they're looking a little more closely for them where there may be some diagnostics that can be done on the Pat to to make sure that this does not developing that disease that the original Pat may have had that should have just the same longevity and health status as the original animal so genetic counseling especially the situation like that because you say are and I have a golden retriever and this golden retriever died of a type of cancer and then she'll star coma but this is just the best dog in the entire world so I want another one just like Goldie and then there is that chance because of the genetic predisposition that the next at could have cancer also said that yes I think it's very important so Mylene you were talking about this genetic preservation that can go on and you'll sometimes have a cloned animal in Sir get that you may have three or four are they obligated to take all the pattern that later and if not what do you do with the other pets and I'm sure people are thinking how many cats and dogs and horses do they have to act to circuits so our litter sizes are usually small just one or two maybe three and puppies or kittens and the letter we did have some larger sizes we had up to five puppies in a litter and this is sort of earlier on in the cloning process when we were at yeah and it's fine tuning in the number of embryos that go into the store get to get the number of puppies or kittens that we're hoping for and most clients will only want just one or maybe two so yeah I can understand work five is a lot to handle so he we do sort of try to treat that but you never know it's kind of like IVF you may end up with twins or triplets and it's just a little bit of a risk that may be there I would say most clients if there are three parties let's say most clients are going to say yes I want every single copy that morning that's completely understandable I know I would end up actually I have my dogs those prisoners I've already talked to my family and that's it okay on my dog Zeus and there's three puppies I'm gonna take one and again my brother you'll take one right and my mother worked I'm gonna give you that so it within my family so I can keep an eye on them and I and that's what most clients will choose to do is is a date they may not keep every single one of them somewhere else but if there's more than they can really take care of it solely on three copies as a lot then they may Debbie does that now I have the claim is not obligated to you take every every cut your kitten that's born with the cloning agreement and they are guaranteed at least one healthy puppy or kitten they're not obligated to take any extra ones there's of course no additional fees for those extra puppies or kittens so in we've had a couple clients that have have said you know I can only take two can you find a good home for these other you know we do have the other ones and we've done that we haven't really get adoption program in the cases that we've done that before those copies of actually been adopted out to you our own employees so it makes it really nice because the the clients can keep tabs on those and they know that the copies went to again how so you have the genetic preservation I want to have the biopsies done small really not painful I agree with you doing little four millimeter biopsies with local anesthesia is so simple you can plan have that preserved how long can you preserve it so if somebody says you know this is really good dog I'm not really sure if I want to do this what's going to be going on later on my life how long can that genetic material be stored and how is it stored I mean I would say most of our clients are are wanting to just preserve the cells are now and it cost is quite a lot where the cloning itself so those clients are just holding on to that DNA we preserve the cells the cells and the cell culture that we do it takes about two to four weeks to complete the culture and then these cells are placed in a crowd files with a crow protected media and they're stored in liquid nitrogen tanks in the cells can be kept stored essentially for ever for decades and we have clients that have stored cells S. for seventeen years and we've actually called a couple of dogs in at least one cat who sells were stored for seventeen years and then they they contest that later on so it's really amazing so essentially forever the cells can be stored there is an annual storage fee for storing cells so they the initial cost of the genetic preservation in sixteen hundred dollars and that includes culturing the cells in the biopsy kit shipment to and from the veterinarian and that also includes the first year of self storage after the first year the annual storage fee is a hundred and fifty dollars per year in the great thing about this is all of the up front fees that the client pays for the preservation and any subsequent storage fees these all get combine an addict gather and then when they decide to clone down the road everything that they've paid to date gets applied toward the cloning so long term clients really like that so I think this is a fascinating way that you're doing this Mullane where you are saving the cells your happiness fee but then you're not being hit with additional fees you know way on top of that because you're paying for a little bit little all the way along that's great now again you are saving the cells it's not embryos because oftentimes we hear about in human medicine where they're saving this genetic material but you're actually saving embryos is that correct that's right for the genetic preservation work we haven't created the embryos just yet they're actually for pets there is not been a technique developed to be able to freeze embryos we can do that and horses so because we've been cloning horses for so long we have improved the technique and initially there was when we first started doing this there was no process available to successfully resent all embryos for horses but now we've developed these techniques we have some of the top cloning scientist in the world on staff your just amazing and so for horses that is our standard thing that we do with the cloning is we we create the cloned embryos and then they are frozen and then they can be shipped and in transferred into their reset mayor at that point but for dog and cat it has to be a fresh embryo so we don't create embryos just yet we just up from genetic preservation we're just simply producing the
T-Rex at the Smithsonian
"Now for decades, one of the world's great museums has felt just a little inadequate, the Smithsonian in Washington DC didn't have in its collection. A tyrannosaurus Rex the most famous dinosaur all known literally as the tyrant lizard, king. Well, now it has after quite a journey his North America. Correspondent James Glen die. In the newly renovated Donoso hole at the Smithsonian national museum of natural history on Washington DC's famous mall. One sixty six million year old spaceman reigns. Supreme t Rick skeleton is dramatically poised to take the head of a hapless triceratops. This particular animal is found in nineteen eighty eight and it was found by Montana rancher was on a picnic with her family, and she saw just a little bit of the editor arm-bone sticking out. It was a bone of the T Rex that never been found before. That's cooked Johnson, the museum's director and chatting Knicks to the skeletons teeth H, one is about the size of a banana. Can you be a full blown top of the line American natural history museum without a T Rex? Well, that is something I think is not possible. When I joined this museum as director, we didn't have it to your accent. I wasn't the first person to the point that out, but it was something that I didn't want to open this exhibit that having to your ex here because this is the national museum. Mm, t Rex was first discovered early last century. It was once native to North America and vindicates now, the Smithsonian has been desperate to get its hands on one there's two ways to get a T Rex can buy one or you can find one. That's the bottom line, which I did the museum. Well, we spent a fair amount of money looking for one because actually cheaper to find them into by them. Find them into game out. It's not it's not inexpensive. But it'd be better to find your own. And we looked and looked looked, and we found pieces and parts. But when you looking for something as rare as a complete T Rex chances, you actually will find a relatively small, but buying one of the city, also substantially complete T, Rex's is complicated to sue a beautifully preserved lodge. Reynoso is still known by museum staff is the one that got away at an auction that exceeded all expectations in New York in nineteen Ninety-seven bidding started at half a million US dollars. The hammer dropped at seven point six million with commission on top Chicago's field. Museum was the. Lineup and his house, sue since but many paleontologists believe they have been the losers. Is it all Sam kneels felt that'll drastic pox fault? What happened that generally was because if you think about the discovery of shoe happened before Jurassic perk and the sale of sue happened after Jurassic Park, and that was an amazingly, beautiful fossil the skull was in one piece, and it was an exquisite thing when it went to auction. There were many many museums had dreams. What's your personal views about benefit these things to be found on public lands? They along to the nation. Well, United States is the only nation in the world that has dinosaurs, and where it is legal to sell dinosaurs. He other big Dennis are producing nations. And there's like six or seven of them own the dinosaurs the nations in the United States on private land. If there's a dinosaur to private land owner owns Dennis with the increase in the value of dinosaurs. Launched by the su- sale act. Actually has made it more difficult for professional intelligence museums to access private lands because dinosaurs are now money. They didn't used to be money. So this sunny changed tack slightly, and found a third way of getting a T Rex by working with another arm of the federal government, which already funds, most of the museum's costs and the land on, which this dinosaur was found is US army corps of engineers, because it's a reservoir managed by the army corps of the people do all the engineering and they had to Rex's from their property. Both of them were out there with the Rockies Montana. So we didn't want to take Montana's only directs the once they had to both the museum of the Rockies and the US army corps of engineers green benefit to promoting Montana, and the army corps of engineers in Washington DC, the specimen has now been dumped. The nation's t Rex Matthew Khurana is the museum's curator of Donna, Soria. It's important to us. I think that we call it the nation's T-rex because we really. We want people to feel like its they're controversial because there are the big ones, you know what, what what's going to think about that? One of the other new you can play t Rex's around. You know, our T Rex is not a T Rex of sutra Nakata's. It is. But, but our T Rex is not a T Rex of superlatives. It's not the oldest or the biggest or the youngest or the longest, but it has unique position of being everybody's T-rex thanks to the museum's -cation and the number of American tourists, we make a pilgrimage to Washington DC cook, Johnson believes the specimen could ultimately become the most visited horrendous Soros Rick's in the world. I've had T-rex described as a gateway drug. Can you explain that for kids? I actually think I coined that phrase. I think I did of kids really caught on. It's it really the ideas that kids love dinosaurs at a very early age. It gets them excited to go to Zia. Gms gets the meeting, scientists it gets them thinking about how fossils are found right now. We're hiring. The next generation of scientists, and many of the paleontologist, tell me look, I it was drastic parked to did it for me when I was a kid. So I'm seeing that generation come through now and there are a lot of them and every year we're finding something like fifty or sixty new species of dinosaurs, unknown to science, I opened a dentist or exhibit nineteen ninety-five and since then the number of known dinosaurs globally has more than doubled. So there's still lots of amazing stuff out there. Get out in the backyard and get digging. That was our North America. Correspondent James Glenda reporting.
Ancient Gum Gives Archaeologists Something to Chew On
"This is scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata. You're probably not too interested in what some people call. ABC gum already been chewed, but for archaeology such gum as long as it's really old is genetic gold mine. It's bit. Like, I guess Jurassic Park Italia. 'cause Shuba a graduate student in archaeology at oops. Ali university in Sweden, she's referring to that famous clip from the movie about how Jurassic Park scientists extract blood from a mosquito trapped in amber being Dino, DNA, except in this case, it's human DNA and it's not trapped in amber. But inside exceptionally old chewing gums found at the site of an ancient hunting, and fishing village on the west coast of Sweden. The samples look like chewed up wads of modern day gum, but don't think Wrigley's, this detritus is black sticky. Tar distilled from birchbark 'cause Shuba has tasted modern day version sin isn't eager to try it again. Liz, I'm faith for it. So why chew on something so unpleasant? Maybe because they're gum wasn't for fresh breath. It could use it to seal your boat or like seal your thoughts. So it's kind of everyday use substance, many of the gums have teeth marks too. So perhaps, they chewed it to help shape it and intern develop. A habit despite the taste that today's tobacco chewers might relate to 'cause Shuba team extracted and sequenced DNA from the ancient gum, and they found genetic evidence of three different gum chewers two women and a man. It's the oldest human DNA found in Scandinavia dating to about eight thousand b c and because it more closely resembles the DNA of hunter gatherers from western Europe than from eastern Europe. It also provides hints about how people ended up in what's now Sweden the results are in the journal communications biology. The gum could still hold other clues about ancient diets or the bacteria. These people had in their mouths so given that we can learn so much from chewing gum. Is it really that bad to stick it to the bottom of chairs and tables, you know, for the benefit of future? Archaeologists still think that one should not without any place just like that. So I think you should definitely throw it in the but I won't blame these guys who who spent as out to those years ago. They did a good job. Thanks for listening for scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Don. Yata.
