"Who would ever take the other side of that bad. You'd have to be really confident that bitcoin was gonna go down right. Yeah they're good times to short cryptos. Subtle is a long long woody. Things happening right now because clearly. We hit some crazy p. There was a lot of enthusiasm. And now we're down fifty percent across the board generally speaking. Nfl people are a little concerned and we saw this happen before when bitcoin twenty and then went down to three thousand. Were now at thirty twenty. Nine thousand from sixty three g think. We still have a long way to go or that. You know it's gonna be another one of these three years sideways kind of situations. What is your gut tell you. The possibilities are so might lisa pretty simple so right now. The median household building of the crane is your across the world right The the reason why. Bush muppets industry is that Five years from now or ten years. From now i don't think the media will Still zero five. I think most households would bitcoin different types of cryptocurrencies. And i think that's what's going to lead to grow so even if we if i'm reading that correctly we're still in the first ending. Most people don't own it therefore we could And most and most homes will own some bitcoin or theorem at some point. Yes and that will make the price go up but you just have to have the stomach for possibly to go down and it could go down to ten thousand again right. I don't really have any expenses at bike tour. So so how. Much of your net worth is in crypto versus fiat and owning a house. You don't own a house yet your bicycle. that's good. that's a start. Is it an electric bike or just a regular by just a regular by okay. So that's worth two hundred dollars or south. What percentage of your net worth is in crypto versus other assets on hand percents. Sounds like most probably some so really. High percentage nine percent. I'll definitely higher than ninety. Wow i mean don't like to give too much advice because you seem really smart and you went to stanford and i didn't but I'm gonna go ahead and give you permission to sell some of your crypto to buy a house or an apartment. Give you permission. Listen it's been really great talking to you. You're you're a fascinating guy. I really appreciate the candidness Talking about this. And i wish you continued success. This actually seems like the kind of project where somebody is not grafting trying to take a whole bunch of money and scammed people out of money and seems like a project that could actually help society and give people the opportunity to build crypto into protocol that allows people to program kinds of interesting applications. So congratulations on the projects project. And hopefully we can stay in touch and here when things When even more projects come out yet they just want your mutates all right. Thanks for and Hopefully i'll see you increase day or if you're having to make it out here and we can have some jesuit younger. Something tonks talks rather chairs makes growing show..

"They offer you pretty insane. Yield starts example for polkadot. If you hold that thought token it gives you fourteen percents in new inflation every year. So which is really high or Let's say out grants you still love. 'em percents Salon is also pretty high. So what does that if you make a stable coin deposit stable cleanser used to tap into perfect state yields that are coming in from multiple block saints firstly user double digit yield under stable quance. So it's basically a savings account poncet in a world where interest rates across the most of the western world or. Put the convergence zero. I if you are able to create a system whereby users can deposit Things that have their value pectoral. Us our and are earning. Let's say no fifteen twenty percent yield on these things then that case is a serious challenge to wells fargo and other commercial banks. So let's talk about that for a while. People don't seem to understand how fourteen percent is being paid from anchor or other protocols. And so who. I buy some tokens. Or i. Place them in anchor and then i get fourteen percent on my money. Where does the fourteen percent come from. Who's paying that. I'll be the token facial of various luck chains like let's say the salon blockchain in theory on para in the new token missions views to bundy. It's so somebody has to pay that fourteen percent who pays it yeah so Sitka component ave. When i lend out when i deposit stable queens into smartphone shocked the on check ben. Men's at these stable queens to borrowers all across the world got that post collateral. Nps assets like salona herro. Polkadot it there. And then the protocol takes that collateral and mistakes it two different blockchain's to order respectively in fourteen percent yield of fifteen percent yield in so and so forth and i real who. Okay keep you on that end. I kneel sold off for stable coins to be converted to lender in terms of stable interest rate. So i get if. I wanted to take alone against my bitcoin or a theory him. I can put it onto one of these platforms. Somebody else can put their stable coins. There i can get a loan to gets my theory but that loan could be called. If i don't have to sell my theorem. If i think my theorems going to one hundred thousand dollars and it's only two right now i can just hold it but i can take a loan against like margin loans like people do against their equity and google or some other big tech company generally way to think about it okay. how long can that last is it. Just as long as people are willing to take the risk and is that why. Bitcoin had such a dramatic drop. Like people. were speculating that some people might have gotten. What essentially is a margin call so This is probably gonna last up until the point when there's too much money coming into this system that we could come back right so You know these yields won't last forever. It's it's basically It's either because the risk is higher. This market is inefficient. But we're betting is that that rate is still not much higher than whatever Offer that makes total sense when you talk to people who are on the inside of crypto like you are and the and project. Heather comes up. What do people talk about you know. Wherever y'all crypto people are talking on discord or some secret telegram group or whatever what do the insiders who are the most credible in your world think is going on there because we as outsiders who don't really understand crypto are looking at it going. This feels like it's a scam and it's gonna collapse and these people seem really shady because the ceo and the cfo are nowhere to be found for years. What are people saying. On the inside of the crypto world. 'cause i've heard from a couple of insiders that they think it's a black swan and they're very nervous about it. Are you nervous about it. What are people saying you know privately. So my question is That this is true for most crypto projects. You don't really have just one or two decision-makers really like it's more of a community of People with varying degrees of control the project. So it's it's possible that for some of them they could be shady for some of them. They might be legitimate. But i think overall it's not so much that had intended to run away with fifty million dollars or things like that i. I just think they're genuine challenges to chime to create a stable quyen and likely there were some losses or adjustments that they needed to make In order to wow remain. Ads are in tough environment. that is very diplomatic. And if i'm reading into it. Some people in the community might believe that they made some mistakes along the way like they did when they had that eight hundred fifty million dollars reportedly stolen from them and they may be mingled assets. Like new york attorney. General said but they might be making up for lost money. We're trying to clean something up by having paper commercial paper from real estate projects in china or other places that maybe are bought for pennies on the dollar but then look like full assets. Do you think there's any credibility to that theory. That's been circulating. Yeah i i would be surprised. I was true. And you've heard that theory as well. Yes that the paper is from china. It's for illegitimate assets that were bought for a penny or two on the dollar. And then that means either you could abscond with the ninety eight cents on the dollar or you could be making up for money. That was either stolen or lost from other attacks or other things they did that. We're stupid right Yeah so he was kinda parts. Yeah it's it's kind of hard to quit together reserves Because you know just don't really have too much information there. But i do not believe that people that run cover fundamentally shade interesting. Why do you think see on the. Cfo don't talk and have you met them and talk to them ever probably because there's a lot of regulatory risley so So they are very scared to come up for air because people might find them and arrest them for breaking securities laws in different countries. Yes wow so that. Is the problem with running these projects. If it's controlled you're not a century project you're writing code. People can use it or not. Just like if i wrote a web server people can use. You're not the one running. This explains it. It's fascinating What do you think will happen. Ultimately with the regulations of stable coins and insults are in europe in the west. Yeah i mean we already saw this out with intact.

On the road to a lot of great venues around our country from theaters to playhouses and comedy clubs. We've taken our shows out to the communities where the fans are to be able to have in-person live shows but since the pandemic we had to cancel our our live shows and tour dates and we're hoping that with their support of save our stages the venues that we've come to love will be able to make it through this time so that we can all get together in person soon. Hyundai is working to support save our stages and help keep so many of these venues that we've been to around the country open to give you an update on what i'm thinking about. Live events going into twenty twenty one and beyond as of right now survivor. Forty-one is scheduled or the fall. I do not have any live shows planned for survivor. Forty one and i know some people are asking for those to come out or the fall and the start of the new survivor season but after what we went through in twenty twenty where we had to cancel our live shows in new york. We a very big live. Show that was going to be in atlanta. At the ron clark academy. We had to cancel both those in refunded the tickets. Back to everybody. I would hate to ever have to go through that type of experience again because it was just so much craziness for everybody. That was involved. So what i wanna do is try to be as safe as possible and wait until the spring of twenty twenty two which would be during a season forty two of survivor that we can get back out there. And that is what i'm thinking. In terms of the next live show for rob has a podcast. And i know with the help of hyundai and their save our stages initiative that all the venues that we know and love are still going to be back up and thriving in twenty twenty one and beyond so thanks again to hyundai for their efforts to save our stages.

Sharon Kwon Addresses Asians Being Overlooked IN America
"My guest today is sharon kwan. She's a psychotherapist. For asian american bi coastal and immigrant individuals and families struggling with racial trauma and identity at yellow chair collective. She's also a psychiatric social worker at an la county. Department of mental health contracted nonprofit agency serving foster families and youth. And the reason why. I invited sharon to rush to the microphone and And come out on. This episode is because she recently wrote a piece for huffington post about what a lot of people don't understand or appreciate about what. It's like being an asian in america in twenty twenty one and that piece that she has written has really gone viral. I posted it. A number of my Facebook friends have shared it on their walls and a number of them have said sharon has expressed what i been feeling lay entire life but didn't know how to put into words. So that's a pretty grand introduction for ucla that at your relatively young age that you have been able to put your finger on something that a lot of us. Asian americans feel. But we don't know harder articulate. So i want to welcome you to our show. Thank you so much. I feel honored to be here. I want to begin by you sharing the story that you start off your peace with and we'll see where it goes from there so tell us this story so my friends and i. We got recalled an uber to go to a laker game. And we're a pretty diverse group. You know is very reflective of the diversity of los angeles and immediately when we got in the car. The driver asked us all where we're from and it was very casual and we were all just like you know around here. But then he singled me out. He said a weight but not you. And he pointed to my eyes and did the whole like slanty. I think yeah which again i have been. I've received that so many times throughout my life and it was just the similar feelings of discomfort and just like why this again and then he says you know not you. You're not from here. Where are you really from. Which i feel like is a question that a lot of asian americans identify with as just like by asking that question. It automatically asserts that you're not from here in the circles that i run in That's called being a perpetual foreigner. Right i mean you were born in great came here at three years old. My grandparents came in the early part of the twentieth century. Okay so i. My parents were born here like i only have one language english. My dad fought in world war. Two and yet. I still get asked that question right. And for those who aren't asian american. Who are listening. This is what sharon and i are talking about. Is this no matter how long you've been here no matter how american you are because we don't look anything close to white Then we're always going to be seen as you're not really a true america. You're not really from here. So where you from. Because of this i have spent so much of my time here. Just trying to prove to everyone and myself that i am american. It's led to some inevitable whitewashing inevitable assimilation that. You know. I'm not proud of. But i also feel like i had no choice. I wanted to fit in. I wanted to be seen as an american. But got to the point. Where i realized wow no matter what i do no matter how perfect. My english is no matter how you know that. Been to school here. My entire life like no matter all of this.

"Kwon Alexander on the tackle to gain of 11 on the pass out of the backfield to Jerick McKinnon, who was lined up as a slot receiver. Soon as McCain emotion out of the backfield in Kwon Alexander followed him out there. That was the only place Nick moments was looking. That was the match up. He wanted a little bit of an option round out in the flat. McKinnon had the option to the run of the sideline or cut in. He decided to cut in and run a slant route and Mullins hit him for a nice game. Seven year man out of Georgia's Southern McMullen's now nine of 11 1st in 10 40 Niners of their own 38 yard line. Through to each side. Put toss, sweep to the right side and looks like Hastings. We get bottled up and stop. Short of the line to gain Williams and Davis on the stop for the New Orleans Saints. Yep, right back to the line, 2nd and 10 of coming for San Francisco. This is the guy that Niners fans thought they were going to see. A lot more of was Michael Lacey the last few weeks. Surprised only had four carries for three yards after a lot of people thought that might be a coming out party, But he's a talented young rookie that they're still high hopes for knowledge from under center takes the snap drops back. He does he throws and his past the right side falls woefully incomplete pressure coming from the secondary. And C. J. Garner Johnson. You guess you could say, Well, he was the intended receiver, but the ball fell a good five yards behind him, Nick. No one's never saw him. That's one of the football fan. You're just cringing saying there. Bacon. Please throw the football neck moments because Gardner Johnson was breathing down his blindside untouched. Moment. Very fortunate. Get that football off just a half second quickly enough for that wasn't a sack fumble. Kidding back in for the Niners Elite attended three third. Now there's four of six on third down 3rd and 10 offset back with the shotgun. Mullins, retreating with the ball just lets it loose over the top of the middle of the defense and reads Got it. Doubles for a couple more of the short the line. The game will be 1/4 and a body to perhaps Kane of seven and three quarter.

"Down with beer? Good because he's filling in for Mark Willard on KNBR, 1045 and 6 80. These wars leader back with you on the sports leader do to hurt box filling in for Willard will do until 10 P.m. one of our favorites Jennifer Lee Chan from NBC Sports Bay Area. She covers the 40 Niners. They're so kind to join us on. Just a crazy day. Yesterday was bad enough. And then today it's just like, Hey, check this out. Two of your best players also out the injuries. Don't stop. Can you make any sense of this? Like, what the hell is going on with the 40? Niners here, Jennifer. It's just you know, when it rains, it pours, and it's a monsoon in Santa Clara. Right now. It is unbelievable How many injuries they're dealing with and You know all of people that said, we don't appreciate it. And there is something to be said for players playing a quarter and a half and then another quarter before they head into a pool game. And I think we're being part of that manifest in the foreigners. Roger. I thought that the news of the day was going to Kwon Alexander getting traded that in and of itself is a pretty big deal. What did you make of the trade? And what had you been here? What had you been hearing before? It all went down about the possibility of something like that happening. The Niners kept it pretty well on the down low. They really did. I didn't hear anything at all. There, of course, work questions on his play, and whether it was good enough to stay on the roster. Fred Water has been such a good job and drink. Greenland has also played really well. Philip made not Kwon Alexander expendable, but the fact that they have depth at that one position. Give them little wiggle room in regards the cat because they're so close to it at this point and You know the fact that it's going to go down next year? Likely they're really in a tight spot. So it does free up a little bit of money for them. It was a big contract that Kwan sign when he came to the 40 Niners. How Active. Do you think that this team could be going into tomorrow's trade deadline, given that they've already gotten rid of Kwan? That seems like the big move, But now way you don't have your starting quarterback, you don't have your best offensive player. You've lost four of your best five players for significant periods of time. Plus your quarterback like it's pretty clear what the writing on the wall for this season says for the 40 Niners. Do you think anyone else could be possibly on the way out for some of these? Fifth. Maybe you know up to second round draft pick something to that effect. It's hard to say they've got a lot of things on their play. They've got a look at, you know, getting Fred Warner contract. I don't want to lose him. He's so valuable for the defense and his growth has been immeasurable. He's really so valuable for the defense, so I don't know if that's something that They can lose sight of. There's also guys like Kyle use check. It doesn't have time left on his contract, either. So when you look at who could they get? There's really just not that many options. Injuries, of course, are really huge of the 40 Niners, but they're huge across the league. There's a kind of a lack of depth at many positions across the league, and there's not really a lot of guys that they can get at this point in reverse. Do you think that they waved the white flag in some way? I mean, you get rid of Kwan. Okay. He's a second stringer at this point, which speaks to drag her in laws. Ed and Fred Warner. But a guy like trying Williams needs a new contract at the end of the year. He I think the expectations were really high, perhaps unfairly high, but he has not lived up to them. So far. He's been fine. There's nothing wrong with him, but he's going to look for 80 $9100 million this upcoming offseason. Jari mentioned the cap going down. Niners probably going to be up against it, regardless of what's going on with Jimmy Garoppolo next year. Is he a guy that you could see? I know that we're not hearing much because again the Niners are really good. A bottle of this stuff up, but they see a guy you could see maybe moving before tomorrow. I don't think so. I think that you know Bill stick with him for the rest of them. They don't have a long term obligation to him, so I don't know that that's a place where they want to move on to fight yet And then, if you look a you know, it's it's McMullen's, or CJ Beth third, holding down the quarterback spot. So you guys well, they're fully capable of doing it that you don't want to lose either of them as well. So having Trent Williams there to help protect the blind side is kind of important just a little bit by the way they have a game on Thursday. Congratulations. I know. I know. After the game on Sunday, they're like, Oh, we can't wait to get back out there and nail quick turnaround. It's going to be just right for us. I don't know if they're saying the same thing today. It doesn't feel like emotionally that this team is going to have much of a chance to recover from just the kicks directly into the knee caps that they picked up today. And this Packers team is obviously very good. I look at what the 40 Niners did successfully against them last year, which was Rush Aaron Rodgers with a lot of guys who could just get up in his grill immediately. They don't have those guys anymore..

Features such a share. Excellent. So I know in the past in order to attend the award, show you I. DO attend our conference, which meant you got to come out to the bay area here in admission into the conference. This year though is that can be different. The exciting thing for me is this year for the first time anyone can attend. Shared, there was typically held it our conference in even. Sometimes sessions conflict with our award ceremony but this year anyone can attend in. So we're really looking forward to having a great crowd attendance years awards. Yeah. No I am excited to as well. We talked about how the award show has been growing from originally it's just the five awards now we've expanded were up over twenty awards. Can you talk about some of the categories for this year? Yes. This year's work knowledge over twenty winners in five categories and the categories include best APP best game. Best. The Best Watch in we've at. Bixby to this year's best of Galaxy Star Wars, and we're really excited about that your earlier this year I did a podcast interview with Roger Kibi at Bixby in the lab team. So super excited that they're going to be joining us in in awarding their developers. That is a very exciting talking about the winners. Can you tell me how are winners selected winners are selected by our store team? Who Do a yearly editorial review of all adds publish to the GALAXY STORE What would you say is the biggest challenge with the with the award selection. I would say narrowing down the list of winners. The galaxy store offers expertly curated quality APPs, which means we have a lot of great APPs. Store? Yeah. I, know because I've been involved with the with the selection in awarding process and it is a challenge because you know we've got a team that goes through all this and it makes nominations and in their selection EST who they think should win. And sometimes you know what your favorite may be different than my favorite APP. So we get to battle it out yet to figure out who is the winner for that award. Yes. So what is it that the Samson developer program team is doing to help promote the winners. Winners are featured in Galaxy store merchandising. For the award ceremony, we have a best of galaxy store press release that Samsung does one winner per categories chosen to be featured in that press release however winters. Can write a press release with a quote from Samsung as well. We do post winner developer marketing newsletters, blogs, and podcasts interviews. Yeah. I'm actually really looking forward to to next season in the podcast where I get a chance to interview some of some of these winners for the best of awards that should be a lot of fun now that you and I and our team has been involved with the selection process for the awards. Can you tell me what is your favorite award? That's a tough one. I would say if I had to choose, I would say that collections the theme collections in the watch elections because it shows a body of amazing work rate in. So I think that if I had to choose. I would say that be my favorite what right you? You know my favorite I think it's the fact that we do recognize those indie developers. So it's the small new independent designer that they've just put together this amazing APP in we're recognizing that. So you don't have to be this big brand you don't have to have. A large collection. I love the fact that we are awarding those large collections because it's an amazing. Opportunity for us to to recognize when a designer just got this amazing library of work. But I'd love the fact that we also recognize that individual one key design that just stands out. So you know you can even be the little developer in brewster going GonNa find you and then recognize you for your great work. So,.

"A lot has happened since then I, think we've actually recorded about twelve episodes, but it has all been during this pandemic that we've been going through. So it's been crazy year needless to say, but the galaxy store has been going strong. This is the last episode, the season finale, and what better way than to discuss the best of Galaxy Store Awards for twenty twenty. So I would love to talk a little bit about the history of the awards. Charlotte. On this awards program since its inception can you explain to the audience? What are the best of Galaxy Store Awards? Yeah. Absolutely. The best of storyboards were created to recognize at set of sit out amongst the crowd in the US. Galaxy store. We. Look for excellence and innovation design, creativity quality, and informants. So I've been with Samsung four several years now and I know that we've been doing this award show during that time. But when did the awards for start the program was launched in two thousand eighteen as a pilot recognizing just five galaxy store publishers. Our goal in creating the program was to acknowledge in celebrate the contributions of designers, developers, Assam's ecosystem. This will be the third year. Then right we are. Now in our third year, as you said, we increase the awards to five categories in over twenty winners. So we've come a long way in three. Short years than we expect to continue to grow the best up galaxies store awards program in the future. So where were those previous awards shows held the inaugural? Best of Galaxy Store Awards ceremony in two thousand eighteen was held at the Samsung Developer Conference at the Mosconi Center in San. Francisco last year's award. Ceremony was held at Sec Twenty nineteen at the San Jose Convention Center and Recognize Twenty five developers and designers from around the world and twenty. One of those winters weren't attendance which was great to see in a showed us how Norton this recognition is Samson. Ya I was actually the host of the show last year in San Jose, and that was my highlight was actually meeting these developers for the first time we've been communicating with them. Throughout the year to actually meet them face to face in to see how rewarding it was for them to receive this award. That was definitely an amazing moment. I agree it was also I, think rewarding in inspiring for us to see their excitement in just how much everything put into getting their war yet. Definitely, let's talk about some of these past recipients. Where's the best way for people to learn like who won in two thousand, eighteen who won? In two, thousand, nineteen. So we have a great list of winners now having done this for two years and going into our third.

But one that I'll share is we awarded Virgin for best new watch face designer in his award was picked up by the your way embassy who tweeted congratulations virgin I was really amazing that is in in Bergen is honestly an amazing designer tons of success. He was the designer when I was first looking into starting myself selling watch faces I was seeing his work and I thought my gosh, this guy is putting out insanely creative watch faces and my goal was to try and. Do something at his level i. mean he just amazing detail. Amazing death amazing features. So when I was starting out, he was the one that I looked up to trying to emulate you know his success out great to see that he was awarded that year. Pretty. Amazing. So who qualifies for Potentially winning a BEST OF GALAXY STORE? Award. All Galaxy, Star publishers qualify for bigger well-known brands to indie developers, designers they all followed by that. That's that's that's great. I. Love to see how open Samsung is that You know it's not just a developer that is a big brand name but you know we'd like to recognize even the small person indie developer who is absolutely you know maybe doesn't have all of that experience, but is still putting out great content so.

President Maduro Consolidates Power As The Opposition Grows Weaker
"Backed opposition in Venezuela has spent years trying to dislodge authoritarians President Nicolas Maduro. Nothing has worked instead, as John Otis reports Maduro has consolidated power, while the opposition appears to be growing weaker by the day. It wasn't long ago that Maduro's days appeared to be numbered. His oil rich country was facing its worst economic meltdown in history as well as crippling U. S sanctions. Nearly 60 nations recognised opposition leader Kwon Guido as Venezuela's rightful head of state in January. Why, though, was a guest of honor at President Trump's State of the Union address here this evening? A very brave man who carries with him the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Venezuelans. Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate president of Venezuela. Juan Guido. Mr President, please take this message, but Nicolas Maduro is still ensconced in the presidential palace. The Venezuelan military has ignored y those calls to mutiny. Anti government protests have petered out. Meanwhile, the opposition is split between moderates who favor negotiations and hardliners who want military action to oust Maduro. The hardline strategy backfired in May, when a tiny force of exiled Venezuelan soldiers tried to invade their homeland. They were quickly captured or killed. So is very stock for us. Right now. We have a very, very complicated situation. That's unhealthy. Alvarado Ah, lawmaker with an opposition party called First Justice. The government jailed several party members. Then last month in a legal maneuver, it replaced the leaders of first justice and two other opposition parties, with politicians friendly to Maduro. Alvarado claims these new party bosses were paid off to switch sides. First, they persecute the literature off our party. Then they tried to divide us on DH. Then they replace the leadership of our party with new months that received the money off Maduro. The Venezuelan government ignored NPR's requests for comment. Chef Ramsay of the Washington office on Latin America, says Maduro wants to weaken but not eliminate the opposition. It is ultimately useful for the regime to point to the existence of opposition politicians in Venezuela, as it allows them to say that they live in a democracy. Maduro controls nearly every government institution. Except for the National Assembly, which is led by Juan Guido. But now the opposition is talking about boycotting this year's legislative elections because of fears of vote rigging. If the opposition does boycott why, though, will no longer be president of the Legislature. Jeff Ramsey notes that this post is the basis for his claim to be Venezuela's legitimate head of state. The international community is going to be at a crossroads where they'll have to decide whether to continue recognizing one way, although as interim president Venezuela at a recent rally in Caracas. Why, though, tried to buck up his followers, But if there's a political physical office, you know He acknowledged that they're worn down and frustrated. But he insisted the opposition would outlast Maduro. No, only are the wellbore idea. They are not going to defeat us. Why, though, proclaimed, We are still here
"kwon" Discussed on Cardionerds
"Okay anyways. Yeah the Doctor Klein. This is like super valuable especially you know when we you know sometimes you get complacent you're in the clinic and you just like clicking boxes and you're like I'll get the CARDIAC MRI we realize. It's like it's a whole consultation process and one click. An epic and a signature is actually setting forth such a big you know scheduling events and also you have to go through all this with the patient so when when you're considering getting Marai specifically cardiac number I have always been thinking about you know you get. Anatomical data gets functional data and you get this beautiful buzzword that we call tissue characterization at seems to be a big benefit for cardiac. Mri over some of the other reality. Dr Quantity might recapping on these different aspects of CARDIAC MRI that we get to help our patients. Yes the basic clinical sequences for CARDIAC MRI include Anatomic or morphological assessment and this can typically be helpful for patients who have dilated. Boorda's and you want to be able to measure and quantify the size cine imaging can be used assessment cardio function and. That's really one of the main strengths of Cardiac Mr. Because it's the gold standard for quantifying the trickier size and function because it's able to assess it in a three dimensional acquisition. As opposed to making assumptions that echocardiographic does. When you do a to planet four plane assessment and then we can do perfusion imaging to assess for my Cardio Ski Mia and also to quantify myocardial blood flow Tissue Characterization as Dan mentioned is really one of the highlights of cardiac Mr it is able to assess tissue properties to identify presence of Myocardial Dima myocardial fibrosis infiltrative processes and assassin quantify the size of Myocardium Fart and some sequences require Eleni on for Tissue Kirk And some do not so t to imaging Helps to assess the presence of Inflammation in that does not require gadolinium administration to acquire that data flow. Last quantification is also extremely useful in. It's used to measure the amount of amount and direction of flow at which is typically performed at the proximal era and can also be performed at the main pulmonary artery. When you do both the proximal era and the pulmonary artery then you can quantify the coupon s slow velocity quantification can be used to quantify valvular dysfunction so you can quantify erotic regurgitation Pomona regurgitation. And then you can integrate that with the volume metric assessment from your cine imaging to drive and quantifying migrant volume infraction as false tricuspid regret vitamin fraction. If you've acquired poem onic slow Velocity Assessment And then the last major protocol is Three D. Ole Heart imaging emery imaging and that allows you to get a full buying set of data and then you can reconstruct. It can be useful for orders but also for congenital abnormalities. If you WANNA be able to look at different structures or difference shunts or surgical repairs and reconstruction enough three dimensional nature. So those are the the main components of Carrega Martin. It's also important to realize that we don't Perform all of these sequences and every patient. Because that would take an an exorbitant amount of time which would also be uncomfortable for the patient so cardiac. Mri studies are really tailored to the question. And the indication at andt and we have a standardized protocols based on these common indication. So for instance. If you have a patient where you just wanted to look at their era we would do the. Mri and the Three D. whole heart imaging but we wouldn't do tissue characterization if there was no concern for myocardial infarction or some kind of underlying cardiomyopathy and then on the flip side. If you're sending somebody for cardiomyopathy assessment we would not necessarily be doing three D. Whole heart imaging to look at the at because again that extra time and if it's not clinically useful. We don't do that so when you place a CARDIAC MRI. It's important to indicate what the clinical question is so that the study is. Puerto called correctly so public service announcement for everyone. What you write in comments really matters so thank you so much. This was such an incredible intro to cardiac MRI but let's get to the heart of cardiac MRI now by going. So maybe you can walk us through. How A CARDIAC? Mri could be helpful in some of the patients we saw in accordance clinic yesterday current. Absolutely so I'll start with the first first patient of Ruth Hanna. Who's a forty five year old? She one P one female with prior pre ECLAMPSIA anterior steny status post in. Led Stan three years ago. Who's now being seen for chest? Pain t t e shows an e f a forty five percent with mid April call anterior. Hypo Connie's as well as an epochal aneurysm. How does see Amar Delineate? A schemic heart disease. Yes that's a great question. A great case example so cardiac. Mr would be very useful for delineating. The junction fraction. And this patient. The sometimes with echocardiographic the epochal images can be were shortened to provide a fosler elevated ejection fraction and so impatience with schemic heart disease particularly are that are on the borderline of thirty five percent. If you're not sure if they might need to be referred for Primary Prevention Credit. Mars is really good for giving you a gold standard assessment of the ejection fraction in terms of risk stratification cardiac. Mr would be really important for also assessing the LV size. And if this was in the acute setting looking for micro-vascular obstruction can also help to identify high-risk patients And this particular patient. Who has an April aneurysm? Kirk Mars very helpful for also identifying the presence of an only thromboses which would be important to identify because obviously than this patient needs to be put on anti coagulation And then because this patient is now coming in for Chest pain if you opted to go for a non invasive way of assessing for my cardio ski MIA a stress could also be obtained to assess myocardial blood flow. Oh and then obviously the strength of Cardi Cameras. Also the ability that can assess the presence of myocardial infarction on the size of the infarct and underlying viability of the myocardium. What a powerful tool. And you know just thinking this case. I'm struck by how young she is. But then I remember the Doctor Martha. He taught us that adverse pregnancy outcomes are important. Atherosclerosis risk factor for women. This patient had history pre eclampsia speaking of which So she did have a stress summer. I showed an intro epochal perfusion defect and Ethical Andrews on with a middle thrombosis with associated late gadolinium enhancement corresponding to scar on further review. However her chest pains sharp so ridic- and worsens with competency. Ekg On follow up shows diffuse elevations and PR depression except in VR which showed St Depression NPR elevation USR and CRP are moderately elevated. Dr Quan. How is more helpful for disease? And that's a great question So CARDIAC MR is actually very useful for pericardial disease particularly with Pericarditis Creek Mark and provide assessment of pericardial inflammation and also can assess for the presence and size of pericardial fusion so on first images with cardiac Mr we can also look for pair creo thickness and that could be your I q to your cardio disease than we do. T to stir imaging which looks for our cardiology Edina and that helps us to discern at this is acute versus sub acute versus chronic So it's enhancing on the T to stir images that suggests that the pericarditis is more in the cute face and then we can also do free breathing sequence that helps to delineate if there's constrictive physiology so basically it's a another way to assess for. Inter ventricular dependence so we ask the patient to take deep breaths in and out and we can visualize simultaneous. Rv only filling so if the patient has constrictive physiology. You'll see the RV septum flattening or going to the left during inspiration to accommodate Venus. Return so impatient. To have released significant pericarditis with significant amount of her cardio inflammation they can also develop constrictive physiology which can resolve as inflammation resolves with anti inflammatory medication so it is important to assess for constrictive physiology and these patients with acute pericarditis and then the delayed enhancement assessment can be utilized also assess the degree amid severity of pericardial inflammation. So basically these patients with pericarditis can devout neo vascular pericardium. And that's how the Gadolinium gets into the pericardial tissue. Because got only is an extra sawyer. Agent the Gadolinium stays in the pericardium and that enhances when we do the delete imaging So this allows us to do tissue characterization of the Ricardian and this can be tracked with patients who have pretty complex pericarditis. That's not responding well to therapy. We've Sean from our center. That Kirk can help dictate the intensity of anti inflammatory medication that needs to be a utilized if the patient has severe concentric cardio enhancement on enhancement imaging than these patients probably should be treated with triple therapy gate with end sides colchicine and partner zone and this is because we've shown that people who have severe pericardial. Hanson more likely to have recurrence and we think it's probably because they were not adequately treated. Initially she address it degree of inflammation. No that's great. You mentioned that Nicole and I were just talking about the use of pseudo Cardigan. Dr Clients Clinic in Managing Complex patients with recrudescence pericarditis. Yes those are very challenging patients to manage Cook Kartika. Mark can be useful in those patients who are refractory to medication. They're definitely it's definitely fascinating to hear how you can use them or is almost a tie trading test to see if your doses adequate or inadequate you almost think prior to now now. I'm well informed but I think of like memory is like what do I have do. I have very you know some sort of like a snapshot in time and I won't get another MRI forever you know. This is quite interesting inside note We added I and green and Heather are dying to Parker is up. Cardio episode. It's on our. Yeah Yeah Yeah So. We'll return to this subject for sure. So Klein would be a great person for that. I'd cast it's been mentioned. It's mentioned on it. It's it's really like been on our list. We started. We keep like having back because of other things okay. Let's talk about Susan. Kids who is a thirty five year old woman athlete who is admitted after a F arrests that occurred during a tennis match thankfully. She received immediate bystanders. Cpr with early defibrillation imprompt. Rask she has had prior syncope during training and an uncle who died suddenly at the age of Forty Resting E C G Shows Incomplete Right Bundle branch block ripe. According t wave inversions and an Epsilon Wave v one through three on telly. She's had multiple runs of of a Bundle Branch Block. Morphology and echoes pretty impressive. Rv delegation a heart failure console is done to consider and micro biopsy requests the Amar beforehand. What are we thinking about here and how it Cardi Kamara help us? Yeah so based on the couldn't go impertinent findings I think at the top of the differential would be Air C. and see Amar definitely helps to provide further delineation of that by assessing the right ventricular size and function ability to assess for regional right ventricular wall motion abnormalities as well as areas of discomposure Karnik. Mark also look for areas of federal fibro infiltration of the RV and so you can assess for tissue characterization if you will of the RV to help delineate that entity over it should be mentioned that the task for criteria for Cmr's really For a VC is really just based on the presence of RV size and function and a regional wall motion abnormalities. They did take out the RV tissue characterization. I think it twenty ten because he thought that there's a lot of false positives that were being identified. It's really helpful to note. That Seymour is so useful in right sided disease especially for imaging the right ventricle. Which is such a complex three dimensional structure that is difficult to really understand on a echocardiographic by.
Animal Slander! Debunking 'Birdbrained' And 'Eat Like A Bird'
"All right first up bird brained again. People say this when they're implying somebody needs to get it together or they're scattered. Yeah clearly not a compliment right so for more on this you talked to Corinna newsom. Hello Hi Emily. Yeah Hey how are you? I'm good how are you good? Good my name's emily. Corinne is a Grad student at Georgia Southern University studying birds and before that she was zookeeper she's got a deep well of experience to draw upon for today's episode. What's your relationship with that phrase bird brained? I usually get a little bit offended when I hear the word bird brained as a person who spent a lot of time training birds For the purpose of education and showing off natural behaviors. I've gotten a chance to look very closely. At how birds think and understanding the way that they think and being very impressed with their cognition and so when I hear people use bird brained as an insult. I am. Dan Personally insulted. You gotta stand by Your burs. Starting off strong. I mean you gotta set the tone. Okay trusted expert. Witness Carina newsom approaching the bench. Hit us with that sweet sweet evidence. Carina SAYS BIRDS ARE OVERALL PRETTY SMART. Cognition depends on the species of course but birds in the Corbett family like crows and Ravens are wicked smart. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. They can memorize faces. They were Super Cool. Experiments on that in some crows can make tools which is usually associated with primates. Correct and you know what other birds are. Smart Parrots. They are incredibly social animals. They are also very skilled at mimicry. At recognizing even memorizing patterns At picking up on behavioral cues from humans. Corinna says that parents are tough pets precisely because they're so smart you have to give them mental stimulation and if you don't they're going to occupy themselves which oftentimes may end up looking like biting your furniture tearing apart your shoes wreaking havoc on your home here. It's need constant mental stimulation or else. It's just havoc and all of this has to do with connections inside their brains. Do I smell little data? Kwon Oh you. Do you better believe you do so a couple of years ago. This study came out that looked at brains across different types of birds songbirds parrots various birds of prey and the study looked closely at this part of the brain called the medial spira form nucleus which helps connect the Sara Bellum to the Tel and south one. Zero Bhalla is at the back of the brain deals with muscle movements balance. That kind of stuff. Do you know what that is yet? Yeah I know stuff kwong. Okay fine well do you know at the Telegraph. Alana's I yes. Go read do go right ahead. What is it okay. All right Gimme second. There's a lot of stuff in the brain Yeah it's this really intricate set up structures in the brain that are required for some of the most complex and evolved functions. Yeah you clearly. Google that With I can't you're breaking up on going through a tunnel. Ma'am you're in a closet? You can't be gone through the same time all right anyway. Moving on the key here. Is that the bridge connecting these two parts. The medial spire form. Nucleus and birds is a mark of strong cognitive abilities and parrots have an unusually large medial spiral form nucleus for their size so the birds have small low noggins but really advanced Lil Naga. Oh yeah good point. That was my follow up question to this research. Carino was talking about two and so despite the fact that birds have like very very small brains Usually like the size of a walnut forest and even larger Brain Bird. Those brains are the most effective at packing neurons compared to any other brains including Mammalian brains. So you hear that birds punching above their weight when it comes to neural density honestly. I'm not surprised. So some birds have about as many neurons in therefore brain than like a primate so because their brain has some complex folding and the the neurons are closer physically closer together inside of the brain. They can have a large number of neurons accomplishing a lot of the same goals that animals with bigger brains and their but fewer neurons have. Okay Kwong the verdict on bird brained. Oh you know what it is Mattie. Do I even need to say it slander? Getting so good that you taught me how could Lord okay? Okay my turn so I looked into the phrase eat like a bird. Oh yeah very curious about this. People will say that it suggests. Someone doesn't eat very much that they're like peckish right. Which you know the official. Npr shortly position is that just. Don't comment on how much or how little somebody eats you know what I mean. Generally speaking yeah mine. You're on food business. Yes so okay. Let us start our examination of eat like a bird by considering the simple hummingbird. Do you know how they eat. Deer Kwan no no I do not dear Mattie but I fear but I fear you are about to tell me in excruciating detail first of all let me start off by saying you're welcome second introduce you to Alejandro Trico. He is an assistant professor of biology at the University of Washington on curator of birds at the Burke Museum of the University of Washington. But before that when he was a graduate student at the University of Connecticut he was part of one of my favorite bird. Eating related experiments ever so humming. Birds have really long tongues that dart out to get nectar and for a long time scientists. Thought that the tongue worked like a tiny tiny little tube so small the nectar. Kinda just shoots up the tongue on its own by what's called capillary action Ali in his boss Margaret Ruby. The did not by this capillary action. Theory Oh We were discussing. How the equations and the predictions from those capillaries don really made sense in terms of what the actual the hummingbirds in nature look like. But here's the thing on one does not simply eyeball a hummingbird tongue. These little are as thin as a fishing line and they dart in and out of the beak at like fifteen to twenty times per second. Whoa so to solve these problems. What we devise were tiny transparent flowers with flat sides so we could film through it and see the action happening on. We needed high speed video because it's happening so fast so we were filming between a thousand and two thousand frames per second just to see how long would interact with the nectar. So cool all right so. They made little glass flowers so they could film through them. That's that's pretty genius. Yeah and what they saw kwong. It changed the Hummingbird game. What we saw is that the Humbert on when he touches the nectar. I the portion that is inside the liquid on falls on it has little fringes on those tubes on those open up. Oh so it definitely isn't just a static little tube no not even close as the tongue is shooting out of the beak. It's compressed by the beak but when the tip of tongue hits the nectar it splits into two like a little snake tongue and those tips. They have these little flaps that hoping an those flaps fill up with nectar. That is so amazing.

Super Bowl LIV Preview
"Today ahead of Super Bowl. Fifty four we break down just what to expect when the Chiesa. He's the niners square off on Sunday. I mean at times it's Thursday January thirtieth this espn daily presented by Dell small business. We are on radio row right now. ESPN daily is in the back There are radio stations across America. ESPN shows everyone is at their booths. Interviewing players analysts celebrities stars. And we've got one here with us. Dominic foxworth radio row is madness. It always ban is but it's like three hundred people gets bigger and his crazier every year. Well Luke speaking of madness this game people having trouble picking the winner I think because it truly feels like the two best teams made it to the Super Bowl. I feel like I'm just GONNA. It was Patrick Mahomes. Because it's not GonNa be fun rooting against him. We'll be more fun rooting for him than against it. Let's start by talking about patching mahomes chiefs offense versus the San Francisco Forty Forty niners defense. Which is sort of the strength on strength matchup in this game? I think history would favor San Francisco because the recent super bowls elite defenses. Have come out on top. The two thousand fifteen Denver Broncos the two thousand thirteen Seattle seahawks. We don't need to talk about what happened near later. The two thousand eight steelers ninety six packers list goes on typically offense loses according to our friends at stats and Info so the niners are the sevens team in the last fifteen years to make it to the super bowl with fifty five or more sex the other six teams all won dominique. We've seen how disruptive active this pass rushes the secondary ranks near the top of the League in stopping deep passing as the linebackers fast they can move laterally. Which is the chiefs specialty with their sweeps and screens? And all that said tell me how the chiefs offense can still beat them. I mean I have never seen the chiefs. Offense actually be stopped in any legitimate way especially with a healthy Patrick mahomes and he is healthy. And that's the difference is when we've seen great defenses. Losing the Super Bowl. It's been all time great quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers one of the people who did I did not think Patrick Mahomes is obviously in that category. As far as this town is concerned. If you were the niners defense how would you defend Patrick Mahomes this explosive chiefs passing attack. So I think you have to mix it up. That's the best thing you can do. And you also have to understand that you're not gonNA stop them. They're GONNA make plays they're going to score points. But you need to try not to give a big play. Touchdown don't stress about them getting to the red zone but play well in a red zone which the forty niners haven't been doing which is scary. It's interesting right. Yeah the the niners defense ranks. Thanks near the top in most statistical categories this year. But you're right. They have been less. Efficient are actually been below average in the red zone. They've struggled to stop the run there. which cheese haven't really been running the ball lately? They've also struggled this season against mobile quarterbacks now that requires an enormous caveat which which is that D. Ford niners pass rusher at Kwon Alexander. LINEBACKER missed a lot of games during the regular season but you look performances against Cuyler Murray Lamar Jackson Russell Wilson. You saw those were the games in which they struggled a little bit more for what we've seen from Patrick Mahomes in this postseason is is an insane ability to take off the football as the leading rusher for his team and the playoffs so far and I think that he's always been comfortable with it now that his knee is gone a little bit unhealthier. He's more apt to take off. But I think that's less scary the him getting outside of the pocket throwing like I'd almost rather him try to run it for twenty yards. Because what happens win. He buys time against the forty niners. Specifically they're not traditionally man coverage team but everything turns the main when the quarterback starts to scramble like. That's your your scramble scramble roles as a defensive back or linebackers find closest guy and stick to them everything tires demand at that point in there they just frankly. The forty niners don't have the secondary speed speed in secondary and to be fair to them. No one has a speed and a secretary to run with McColl Hartman and tyreek hill specially with the arm. That Patrick Mahomes has the the chiefs are the best st passing team in the NFL or close to it. The San Francisco Forty niners are the best at defending the NFL or close to it. Something has to give live. How do you even begin to defend all of those weapons? especially if you're the forty niners you play a pretty simple cover. Three quarters mixed in there. Do you change it up. What do you do with Rick Chairman? You have to change it up. You can't survive and covered three. Andy Reid loves four verticals and with that speed and in Patrick mahomes arm strength and accuracy. He will eat you alive in the same with four verts. Would it really comes down to is pressure which is why I think that blitzing is a smart move. You WanNa make them get rid of the ball quickly and tackle but you're not gonNa do it every single time and if you give him one opportunity unity he can make you pay so you need to get the Turner was when you get those opportunities. I think they should be more aggressive than they've been and try to force them to get rid of the ball and make tackles. Yeah if there's been a weakness in this defense dominique. It's been the other side of the field for Richard Sherman originally weatherspoon more recently. They've been playing a manual. You'll Moseley a corner. He's been better but undeniably. That's an area of the field. I think the chiefs would like to target so much of the performance of the San Francisco Secondary. It depends on the pass rush getting home and you know as a former DB pass rushes the secondary's best friend a lot of the great statistics we've seen from the secondary can dairy are the product of this pass. Rush being so explosive a pass rush that turns into a murderer's row. Win The big four Defoe Award. DEFOREST Buckner Eric Armstead and it boasts are all on the field when those four players are playing their sack ratio. The percentage of drawbacks drawbacks in which they get to the quarterback jumps from six percent to twenty three percent twenty three percent of the time. They're taking the quarterback down So Eh my question to you is they've been able to get a lot of pressure by just rushing four. Do you think that they'll have success against a chief offensive line. That's probably one of the better offensive lines they faced aced. No now. It's just for. I don't think they can be able to stop him. The more I think about it in a way that you framed that I think made it very clear my mind is I think they're going to have to flush them out. You got to get him to run with the football or get them uncomfortable to get rid of the football. Because I do think that the chiefs offense line is good enough that they're not just going to get massacred. And then you put on top of it. The chiefs offense is not one that killed by a fact like most offenses. If you second now it's second and fifteen second eighteen it's over it's third and twelve. It's over over. It's not true for the chiefs offense so they can get pressured they could get a sack. Can Patrick Mahomes can make a play in overcome that so I think that the the worst thing they could possibly do is believe leave. Their Front for is going to be enough to stop this chiefs offense so far this postseason what we've seen from Patrick. Mahomes is a record performance. I quarterback in NFL history to throw for two fifty at rush for fifty consecutive games in a postseason. Do you think he keeps it up. And that's a difficult question because yes you can think he'll play well but we're talking about playing at historic level. I think he does keep it up and I think I've said this a lot in to the point where people make fun of me is that he's never had a bad game and that's one of the most mind blowing. I guess you can call it that you see from a guy who's who's just been starting for two years played a lot of games and there's never had a bad one like mediocre is the worst as you get out of them in in the big games. He's been fantastic gets thirteen touchdowns. Yeah no interceptions in his playoff career. And I know it's been said Ad Nauseam nor is why they are in Super Bowl last year because of off someone lining up offsides so like I've yet to see him shrivel into big moment he only seems to get bigger and until I see him Have a tough outing going to lean in favor

A Shortwave Christmas Carol
"Hello anybody there so matty. Yes ma'am last week Brit and I connected to a radio station she's visa. I am radio in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania have a conversation with space physicist and electrical engineer Nathaniel result. Thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here and in two two thousand fourteen. His research took him to Antarctica cool. Yeah home to the South Pole and hub of scientific activity with research stations and field camps spread across the continent. New Zealand has a station down there. Several European countries due to scientists are asking questions. You can only answer in Arca and the Southern Ocean this time of year about wildlife wildlife like penguins. Yeah sure like penguins microbiology. tectonics the northern lights. Daniel was down there to look at the earth's magnetic field and polar regions. I picture this whole space. Mattie like science summer camp but spread across a desolate icebound landscape. What a dream? Yeah you're kind kind of summer camp and these people. They're far from home. which can be really tough? During the holidays so nathaniel when he was down there took part in a musical tradition tradition. That cues up every year on this day December. Twenty four South Pole station. We're ready and standing by thinks the Antarctic a Christmas carol basically the different stations in Antarctica. Sing to each other over shortwave radio. Oh my God this is legitimately the cutest thing you're seeing over the radio Transmission was from the Amundsen Scott South Pole station ahmanson shadow yacht ought. Here's a Christmas Carol from the Italian station. Mario's a Kelly singing an Italian Christmas Carol. I really liked service. I firmly believe this cute Nathaniel would have to agree with you and it's a beautiful thing and you know the different stations and people they have to have to watch out for each other because it's it's difficult environment down there and annual listening at McMurdo Station in a Blue Penguin Hoodie. Sure I'll add wondered if this caroline could be heard beyond Antarctica by shortwave listeners. And other parts of the world he wanted to know how far can these transmissions Israeli travel so how far away were people able to listen well. Before the Caroline Begin thin you'll put out an alert to shortwave radio listener saying hey if you I can hear this email us a lot of snow and people did. They were able to tune in. He got emails from the Netherlands. South America places far away from Antarctica. Some people were able to catch snippets of this singing at the bottom of the world so today. On the show shortwave. podcasts looks at shortwave radio how it works how it travels. And how anything of result is leveraging. A community of shortwave radio listeners for science. Emily Kwong are short. We've expert is nathaniel. Yes he's an assistant professor of physics and Engineering at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. Okay so obviously I know shortwave the charming daily science podcast. But tell me about shortwave. As in shortwave radio so since since the nineteen hundreds we've been using radio waves to communicate. The waves are all different sizes the lower the wave's frequency the longer the wavelength one. Of the unique characteristics. Of shortwave shortwave. Radio is that it can travel. The radio. Waves can travel long distances very long distances around the world because there are three to thirty megahertz hurts in frequency they travel through space to this electrically charged part of our atmosphere called the ionosphere and are reflected or refracted back down to Earth. If we didn't did not have the atmosphere these shortwave signals would travel off into space and not be able to travel around the globe but luckily for us. They can travel around the globe. They they propagate far distances and those with receivers on earth are able to listen. Nathaniel loves shortwave. Because you don't need a lot of equipment to send and capture one of these transmissions oh it can be incredibly simple. You need a transmitter on one side and a receiver on the other and a decent antenna and when I say A transmitter there. There are some people who they make their goal to talk as far around the world is possible with that as little as equipment as possible as low power as possible so maybe using a quarter of a awas and ten dollars worth of parts people are able to send signals that. Get the go all the way around the globe. This is the ultimate Lo fi form of communication gathering. Yeah and that communication could be anything broadcast propaganda spice stations emergency information weather reports rag chewing which is a term mm to describe people just talking about their daily life so radio twitter. Yeah the transmission just has to fall within the right frequency range to count ashore wave and there's an international community of hobby radio operators who seek out a special license from their respective governments to do this. That's called Ham Radio Ham. Yeah that's the hobby Of using this radio so nathaniel discovered that community on a boy Scout Jamboree Ham radio operator had set up a station in the middle of the woods and just turned all his crackling and buzzing sounds coming out of a radio and I heard him talking to these faraway places and and that was just really fascinating fascinating to me and he was hooked got his license in Nineteen Ninety Eight. Just a teenager transmitting to whoever's listening in the northern New Jersey New York metropolitan area area so just pure bruce springsteen propaganda it was mostly just his call son and seventy three. This is W. Two and AF whiskey to November Alpha Foxtrot threaten seventy-three means best regards. It's a pretty common ham. Radio sign off eventually he upgraded to a better transmitter through a wire out the window of his bedroom and attached hatched tree in his front yard and he managed to get a hold of a station in Hungary and it was just a very short contact. But you know that was pretty neat you just throw a wire out your window. And you're able to talk to guy in Hungary and and it worked in these moments stayed with him propelling his scientific methodology and his his career cool. Okay so tell me a little bit about that. How his nathaniel used shortwave for science in a lot of interesting ways because disturbances happening in the ionosphere on a sphere space weather solar wind conditions? All of that would affect radio waves so in Grad school he was able to show how a solar flare caused aradio blackout so cool. Yeah and during the big two thousand seventeen solar eclipse which I missed because it was cloudy. Tragedy so sad but Nathaniel hosted a community science experiment through his group Ham side. The group measured how the eclipse affected the transmission of medium and high frequency radio waves. And the way he's using radio for scientific inquiry is so innovative that this year the National Science Foundation awarded him a one point. Three million dollar grant deign to do what well he wants to bring. Universities and this network of Ham radio operators together to track. What's going on in the ionosphere where short waves propagate in a more day to day way which we we don't really do right now? No not really. We don't really understand what happens on short timescales like why is the fear doing this in New York City but doing doing something else in Pennsylvania overhead and Pennsylvania and. Why is that important to understand the ionosphere to that level of detail? Well we as a planet Senate are really dependent on things happening in space and disturbances in the ionosphere do affect communication satellites global positioning systems. which are used to land planes all these tools? We rely on to keep us safe and connected and so it's very important to try to understand how everything is is is connected together in order to make this systems more robust and and in order to make them work. And in order to you know transmit Christmas carols around the world essential I think a lot of Ham radio for me has always been about connecting people from different parts of the world together. And and you know if you if you even look at like why Ham radio exists if you actually look in the the laws I believe. It says that it's for international goodwill and It's important to try and promote this international goodwill kwon. Do you think our podcast connects people all around the world. I mean we don't have three million listeners. That's how how many people listen to him radio now yet. Not with that attitude okay. I know world domination is your project but I will say I got into radio because I enjoyed tuning in and not knowing what I was going to hear our podcast definitely. Does that help so I think so so from our team to whoever is out there listening in in the world happy holidays. Happy Holidays
