"Than four years post fire patches females also selected sites with about fifteen to twenty five percent bare ground which was available during the year of the fire and one year post fire and two year post fire patches during the non breeding season they selected sites with lower visual obstruction available in year of fire and one year post fire patches. I think what that information tells us is that there are some very significant things that landowners can do to improve habitat conditions for lesser prairie chicken. That may not have an economic impact on their operations. It's only by following along with some of these management suggestions that are probably going to impact lesser prairie chicken populations to keep them off the list. If it's not already too late but if we're concerned about recovering lesser prairie chicken. We're going to have to make some changes.

The bypass community of course has been extremely challenged for same reasons such as the lack of broadband and such but also their jobs. You know when we think about essential workers. That's the community that was working in their grocery stores. And you know frontline workers doing all of these. Cna's everybody that wasn't getting paid enough. But they needed the job just to make ends meet and constantly putting their lives at risk and that's what we saw. We saw lot of these communities ending up in the hospital or having more health concerns than other groups of because they were not in the middle class.

I can formulate a vegetarian diet for a dog. I can make a vegan diet for a dog. it's just a lot harder to get it all balanced and then to get them to like it. The pet food institute estimates that more than one hundred and eighty million dogs and cats are living in. us households and the american pet products association reports that americans spent more than forty two billion dollars on pet foods and treats in twenty twenty alone and all of that is rough on the planet a twenty seventeen paper written by ucla researcher.

That's brian heron a veterinarian at kansas state university. He says fleas like warm humid weather.

Some species of ticks are expanding their ranges. Where i'm at in kansas. Are predominant tickets. The lone star tick in our area. It's spring summer type of tick and so as the temperatures change as it becomes warmer as we have shorter periods of cold than its range is actually moving northward so herron recommends year round flea and tick prevention even if you live in the northern us.

Anybody that does a lot of work, maintains an updated, see via curriculum beat I a course of work as we call the course of life. And then everybody's got a resume, which is a shortened version of the C V. I learned when I went back for another round of studies. That Professor's like you. You've got really long, CVS, like if you actually write down every prize, you've won every position you've held every place you've spoken every time you've been published. Um, the CVI gets really long. How many pages long is your CVI currently? Great question it, zip it because it depends on the size of the prints but at a reasonable size that you can easily read. It's about six pages long about Hello. About six pages about six pages. One. Excellent, so and then you have a condensed, more condensed version and thank you for helping us get started with a little bit more on your resume. You are an internationally recognized expert. On Egyptology. You you set off to become an Egyptologist from a very early age, which I admired and you pursued that and the book is terrific. Now I have to convince I thee my copy of the world beneath the sands. The Golden Age of Egyptology did not arrive in time for me to read it, So I was waiting for it. It didn't write, but the mail system in America is currently screwed up so I went and I got it on Kendall and then I had to call an audible and I got it on audible. So I spent like the last like day listening to the book Everywhere. I am so I could try to get caught up his best as I could, but I usually like to finish the book before I do the interview. I was unable to do that, but it's so fascinating to go back to the very earliest years. Of how these discoveries were first made in this race that was on into the sands. Um, so you were first kind of entering into the subject. What was your door into Egyptology? What was? What was it about that which Just fascinated you starting at an early age. Well, you know, my my first interest in Egypt dates back to my fifth birthday when I was five years old for my birthday present. My mom. Dad gave me a little Children's encyclopedia. Um, I remember leafing through this encyclopedia and one of the entries was on different writing systems from around the world that it was Roman writing and Arabic script and Indian scripts and Paralympics And on my little Five year old I kind of lit upon these horrible six before. Hey, that's lead writing in pictures. I would have to write my name Toby on before that was long in hurry. Ballistics on my fifth birthday, I thought, you know, I'd like to do this properly. One day. I want to do this. If you can read real inscriptions on bats. What set me up? Oh, yeah. I have my mom and dad and on 1/5 birthday questions to thank for it yet At the same time, a lot of people do something when they're five that they don't keep doing when they're 15 and then 25. So there was something about this that hooked you? That's true, And I think that there's no ancient civilization quite as exotic and appealing. Eventually Egypt I mean, who could fail to be impressed by the pyramids by The tomb of Tutankhamun Moon by the great temples of Egypt, and I guess I was always interested in in other cultures on by ancient history and It'll just kind of came together. Really? And when I was deciding what I would study at university, the chance to do for three years, something that I really loved and wanted to know more about was was great. And then I guess. One thing led to another, you might say well, and yet, you know, you didn't get derailed. You stayed focused. And now you enjoy of. I think you've earned a position. Where you can speak with great authority on all aspects of this, and I'm gonna I'm gonna explore those, some of which may or may not be in the book. But like I said, I Listened to hours of the horrible and I may not have gotten everything that I want to ask tonight. So, but I want to start with the something which I think we you recognize right away. And that is the science of the archaeology of the Egyptology. The science of that went hand in hand with Competing interests by European nations in these imperial ist IQ tendencies to try toe own something, and that's what we know was also at the same time is the the That these culture was being discussed was being uncovered under the sands. You were also You also recount how these political forces were at work to try toe own that part of the world. Yeah, You're absolutely right. And it really goes back to the days of Julius Caesar. You know the days of ancient Rome because any empire that really thought it had arrived on the world scene wanted a bit of ancient Egypt. Starting off with Julius Caesar and the Romans. They took obelisks back to Rome. They took Egyptian thinks isn't statues back to display in their own capital, city and state. The rest the world look how great we are with the inheritance of the pharaohs and then fast forward a little bit, and it's exactly the same in the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe. You have front and you have Britain in particular. You both think of themselves a zoo, Great world powers. And what better way to demonstrate that than to bring back to their capital Cities. Amazing objects from the most ancient of of all, civilisations, ancient Egypt. So you get this incredible struggle. This incredible rivalry building up. Between from Britain. In the late eighties and early 19th centuries that soon joined by pressure later, the Empire of Germany is joined by America after the Civil War on drily. Anybody who wants to demonstrate their credentials wants a bit of Egypt. So into the Romans. It seemed, you know that was this was unique to the Roman culture is that they had a kind of it seemed like an inherent insecurity. They were always interested in things that were more ancient than itself. Right? And so you had the Roman fascination with with the Greek gods. You had, um one of the reasons why we have so much of the Bible to this day is because it was actually sort of preserved. They loved the idea that there were these Ancient books, and so they were always a They were very much into sort of this cultural appropriation, which gave them legitimacy. What did they feel They got from Egypt. Well. Egypt, of course, was the most ancient civilizations. So when Julius Caesar came along ancient Egypt was already 3000 years old at that point, I mean, that's pretty amazing, just important and think about that..

"So is the need for their access to the campus. And and the geography that is the United States of America. Still in play. Now I know there's another issue associated with this. And by the way, I understand the desire for for students to be here. I get that clearly and the hope. Of course from their perspective. Toto, look at it. Ah, I think from from all points of view. Is that this will be a short term proposition, and that perhaps in the spring semester or next fall, they'll be back in classrooms in the classrooms as per normal. There's also a desire a benefit on the part of the university's because they're charging out of state tuition. These students who matriculated from foreign lands, and that is a big chunk of money and has also increased the competition for admissions into some of the more prestigious desirable, expensive universities. Interesting to note that there are some students at Kansas State University. That are actually that I actually suing because they have they paid their tuition. These three students have graduated already. But they pay their tuition and, of course and the court during the course of the spring. The in person classes were canceled. They finished up online and they they're they're assertion, and I think with some validity is that the burden on the institution to provide that education is no longer the same. When the students are learning from their parents home back from whence they came. S so I kind of see a common denominator there. If you look at Ah, It's not uncommon for employers being public or private sector when people have to When their employees have to attend training, they have to travel to get to a venue were a particular course is being offered. Anything from HR to technology to all sorts of things that people who are employed by large entities have to be updated on periodically the standard has been those employees would be subject tio per diem costs for travel expenses that go with that. Frankly, most often, I think in excess of what it really truly cost Teo to attend the course. But now that the course is air being taught, And this is, this is not all covert related. This has been a long time coming. There has been Maurin Trist more intrigue. With that, with online learning, and just by way of full disclosure. I don't care much for have taught online classes and I don't like it, I think is depending upon the nature of the subject matter. I think it could be a real disservice to the student because you just learn you moves so much more. Of the overall communication between and among the students and faculty, and it's so I clearly believe it is second best to be generous. But there are some fields of study where you're dealing with just wrote material that you have to learn and understand and know in which I think some online learning has has some relevance. That is okay. And if it could be done on a cost savings basis. That's got to be a part of was considered. To make this course up.

They're expressive Allnut need to be in the United States of America. Is no longer in play because they can do that from anywhere in the world. That's that is among the advantages to online learning.

K-State players announce boycott after student's Floyd tweet
"Kansas State. Football. The players will not plaque the plaque to. Play or practice or even meet. Until a student at the university. Who tweeted? Something is thrown out of school. Several wildcat players. Including Sophomore wide receiver. Joshua young blood posted an image on or with a statement announcing the boycott. This weekend he said. To our family at Kansas State due to the recent, disparaging and sensitive and unsettling comments made by a fellow student, we as a football team consultation with students from campus organizations, as well as students from the General Student Body. Feel it as best for us to stand with the students. We are demanding that Kansas State University put a awesome place that allows a student to me, dismissed for displaying openly racist, threatening disrespectful action toward a student or groups of students. We have resolved that we cannot play practice or meet until these demands are heard and actions taken. We Love Kansas State, but we must stand together and protect all students moving forward. So. That comes from a tweet posted by a student named Jaden McNeil. And the tweet is no longer available. It has been yanked, and his account has been yanked, but it mocked the death of George Floyd. And you wouldn't think people would mock anybody getting killed in any situation, but obviously to mock something like that in these times is just not even to say out of left field is just insane. And so Kansas State has released a statement about the football boycott. The statement, said quote K. State Athletics along with President Richard Myers and university leadership respect and support our student athletes and standing up in the fight against racism at K. State. We are a family, and we will work together to make our campus community and even better place to call home. and. So multiple case day football players have. Talked about how they. are going to be boycotting and Chris Climbing. Is just starting his second year there. He put out a statement. Our Program on our coaches will continue to be part of the solution when it comes to racial. And Justice. They meant racial injustice. I love our players and they know I have their backs. The Gene Taylor chimed in. Recent tweets from case day student. Downplaying the black lives matter effort and the tragic and senseless death of George Floyd are disgusting and totally inappropriate and not reflective. Of who we are as university or our athletic department. They are not reflective of our administration and goals. We are committed to listening and supporting our black athletes, black students and members of our black community, and taking positive steps in the matter of social justice racism. So then CBS, CBS sports reached out. To the students. And Chris Climate reply to CBS. Racism is all caps not welcome a state now in the future and off the field as family. We make a difference to our. Action, I am excited help every player unite for the solution all caps now so that we can come together stronger than ever. Black lives matter as he put it.

Using Black Holes as Fuel
"Been a lot of great research lately into alternative energy sources, but one energy source that might be even more awesome than solar and nuclear energy is black hole energy and one mathematicians suggests that we might be able to find extraterrestrials by looking for spacecraft that are powered by tiny artificial black holes as reported by universe today. This idea comes from a pair of papers published by researchers at Kansas state university in two thousand nine a mathematician, named Louis crane co authored a paper about the possibility of black hole spacecraft, basically, the paper outlined the possibility of using hawking radiation. From an artificial black hole to power a spacecraft and concluded it was at the edge of possibility assuming they could get past the effects of quantum gravity, which are currently unknown. Here's how Dr crane explained it in an Email to universe today. Quote, an advanced civilization would want to harness a microscopic black hole because it could throw in matter and get out energy. It would be the ultimate energy source in particular, it could propel a starship large enough to be shielded to relativistic velocities. None of the starship concepts. Nasa studied turned out to be viable. It might be the only possibility unquote to produce an artificial black hole you'd have to focus a billion tonne gamma-ray laser to nuclear dimensions. So the sheer scale is straight up beyond the current world economy. A civilization would have to utilize an entire solar system to have the resources for this. Meaning it would have to be a type two civilization on the Carter chef scale, and that's just one of a bunch of technical challenges that are beyond what humanity could. Do right now, including the sheer amount of power. It would take to start up that gamma Ray laser, and we're that energy would be stored. But in February twenty nineteen Dr crane published a new paper that says we can use gamma telescopes to find evidence of spacecraft that run on tiny black hole fuel. We could use space based telescopes like the Fermi gamma Ray space telescope and ground based facilities like Veritas, and the high energy stereoscopic system to figure out if gamma Ray sources could be artificial up to a thousand light years away. It's an exciting DEA but species big so trying to be patient. This could take a while. I just have one question about these spacecraft powered by tiny black holes can the do the kessel run in less than twelve parks. I don't know it just break your brand you did just break. My,
A Deadly Virus Threatens Millions Of Pigs In China
"China is home to about half the world's population of pigs. That is why thirties there are scrambling to contain outbreaks of the African swine fever. This is a deadly virus that has killed thousands of pigs and is now spreading fast it could lead to skyrocketing prices. And that's a big worry China, which is the world's largest consumer of pork.

Hundreds of pigs at nearby farm started dying from a mysterious virus. And now gallon is staff are checking his stock for symptoms of African swine fever as well. You know, the pig is sick if its mouth has turns dark, and it's acting crazy when you find a pig that has the fever you need to slaughter it immediately. Pig. Farmers aging city in China's southeastern province of JJ a third place in China where thirties reported an outbreak of African swine fever since early August, a little more than a month around nine hundred pigs have died, and tens of thousands of and killed to try and prevent the virus from spreading. It's spreading very quickly and this diseases very dangerous. We're all scared. So our scientists your can Rick. The professor of veterinary medicine at Kansas state university is an expert on African swine fever. He says although the virus does not affect humans. It's shown a capacity to kill herds of pigs quickly. It's highly contagious and infected pigs die within five to ten days. It's not only the problem that this virus is steadily for peaks. The problem is also we do not have exceed. And without a vaccine says richt, China is particularly vulnerable. This is this is really big because it hits the biggest population in the world and the virus has been traveling fast in early August China recorded its first outbreak in the city of Shenyang in northeastern China, scientists believe pigs there eight scraps with infected pork from nearby Russia less than. Two weeks later. Pigs nearly a thousand miles away were infected then two days later, eight hundred miles south of that in farmer gal city of hitching another outbreak. Penguin senior agricultural analyst at rob a Bank. In Hong Kong says the virus is spread. We'll have a big impact on. How pork is bought and sold in China directly impact on talk is that China needs to maybe pay mall sauce enough hawk I'll talk from other countries. And that says pan will be tricky now that China's in a trade war with the United States and has imposed tariffs on imported American pork ten says China will likely turn to European pork suppliers. Instead. Back on the pig farm, and John province farmer. Gaglione phase worried about China turning to port from other countries. Pork is an important part of the Chinese diet. It makes up two thirds of our meat consumption. If we start importing I won't make as much money, but farmer gal stands to do. Well, for now, pork prices in his part of China have increased twenty three percent since the outbreak of African swine fever, the key. He says is to keep his healthy something that'll become more difficult to do as this virus spreads throughout
