Indian Prime Minister Lays Cornerstone For Controversial Hindu Temple

"India's prime minister made a rare pandemic era trip out of the capital. Today he went to a northern Indian town called Iot. Ah It's where Hindu extremists tore down a sixteen th century mosque nearly thirty years ago now. Hindus are building their own temple on that very spot and the prime minister laid the cornerstone NPR's India correspondent Lorne Fair housing from iota in the past and his following the news there today and joins us now.

This beautiful Warren of multicolored alleyways, housing, small temples, and Hindu faithful believe one of their gods Rahm was born there. But actually it's one of the most sensitive places in all of India for hindu-muslim tensions and that's because there used to be this huge triple domed mosque right in the middle of town it was built in the sixteenth century but in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two, Hindu extremists, tore it down riots spread across India and thousands of mostly Muslims were killed.

So just as an FYI, I I will not be touching on earth because we live here. You know what earth is A. And also I've already done an episode on Mars. So we'll just be doing the rest of the solar system to. Be going in order. To begin with. What is the solar system? The planetary system we call home is located in outer spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. That's our neighborhood. Our solar system consists of our star. The Sun and everything bound to it by gravity. The planets mercury Venus, Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus and Neptune as well as dwarf planets, such as Pluto dozens of moons and millions of asteroids, comets and meteoroid. The solar system also includes the Kuyper belt that lies past Neptune's orbit, which way back there. This is a sparsely occupied ring of bodies, almost all smaller than the most popular Kuyper. Bell Object, which is Dorf Planet Pluto and we will talk about him in a minute. The most popular, the most popular of the Kuyper belt objects. So beyond the fringes of the Kuyper belt is the or cloud. This junk, yes, the worked cloud over RT cloud. This giant spherical shell surrounds our solar system like a big old bubble. And it has never been directly observed, but its existence is predicted based on mathematical models and observations comments that likely originate from there. So. The or cloud is made of icy pieces of space debris, the sizes of mountains and sometimes larger orbiting our son as far as one point six light years away. This shell of material is thick extending from five thousand astronomical units to one hundred thousand astronomical units, so an astronomical unit just for Reference One Astronomical Unit or AU is the distance from the sun to the earth. And that is about ninety three million miles or one hundred and fifty million kilometers. So one astronomical unit is ninety three million miles so. The ORT cloud is anywhere from five thousand, two hundred thousand astronomical units, so it's enormous. God I. Don't think about okay. The ordered cloud is also the boundary of the Sun's Gravitational influence where orbiting objects can turn around and return closer to our son. So that's that's the extent of how far the sun's gravity pull. Goes, to. The Sun's helium fear doesn't extend quite as far so that's like how far the light can travel from the sun. healers the bubble created by the solar wind, which is a stream of electrically charged gas, blowing outward from the sun in all directions, so it's like the soup that the sun is like floating that creates. The boundary where the solar wind is abruptly slowed by pressure from interstellar gases is called the termination shock, so it's like the edge of the bubble. Okay where it crosses into it. this edge occurs between eighty one hundred astronomical units, so that's the outer boundary of the Helius fear. And I've mentioned this before, but to NASA, spacecraft launched in seventy seven have crossed the termination shock, voyager, one and two thousand four in Voyager, two in two thousand seven. for more on that checkout episodes thirty five moms and space for the voyager program. It's good.

"Hello and welcome to misinformation Trivia podcast for ladies and gents who love Cool Trivia. Sticking it to annoying teams pop quiz. We're hosts I'm Lauren. I'm Julia Hey. Joel Hi Laurin. Referring we're still recording from afar. Yeah, and you know what I listen to our first episode were recorded from afar, and while I feel like we needed. You know we got. We needed some getting used to. But I think it sounded pretty good. Yeah, yeah, it's fine. It's fine. It's a free podcast. Twenty all want from us. Yeah exactly. We're all very stressed out. Yeah Yeah Yeah everyone stressed out. You know what that's understandable. It's a weird time and it's. It's not. SUPERFUND right now. So, what are you GonNa do, but you you're going to. You're going to pull us out of this and there's GonNa. Be Something Fun. You'RE GONNA share with us today. Is that correct? That is correct great. They for that great intro so. I've been thinking about it all day. We're all home her trying to figure out ways to you know, entertain ourselves more And I decided to cover a topic this week. That it things about it do come up and trivial a lot so day. This episode is called play your cards right. WHO owns. This is trivia about playing cards interesting I. Don't know a lot about well I'm not a big card player. I'm not a big game person too I. Mean we've talked about this, but I have rarely played a card game, so I'm not that familiar with. Most things about cards so I'm excited, well great. I'm not GonNa talk too much about. Different Card Games per se I. Am GonNa Wind detail, but I'm talking more about like the actual cards themselves. Okay cool so. If you remember in Mr, information to Turbo back from two thousand nineteen. Who could forget? Steve covered the history of playing cards like their origin started in China. They made a to Europe. There's different styles The Germans have different symbols on their cards than the Italians do that kind of thing. Interested in that kind of stuff. Please go back to that episode where he did a great job of covering that. Also there's a really great article. I read on collectors weekly by Simon wintel. It's called the evolution history imagery of playing cards, those published in April, two thousand eight, and there's a lot of great information there, too. Also collectors weekly a surprisingly great resource and excellent publication. I love it. I will digress for a moment so anytime. Anybody talks about how they're afraid of clowns. Yes, I send them this really amazing article from collectors weekly that tops out how? She started as like a trope, and you know the the renaissance period, and how got filtered down, and how they appeared in operas, and what this type of clown, and that type of climate and like clowns actually like weren't actually scary until John Wayne Gay it. True like. Clowns were fine. People like them. That's why when we look back at like our parents at birthday parties when they were little and we're like. What does that thing like? No people liked clowns. Then they were, they were not. Is this source of fear that they are today? It seems but Yeah No. I send that article out. Probably like a couple times a year to people. Yes, I remember using sites great site fabulous site. Shadow to collectors. Anyway back to cards, please. The cards that we use that. We think of as playing cards especially here in North America, but also most most card games at this point used what are called the French suited cards, so there are four suits, hearts, diamonds, clubs, and spades. Each suit usually has three picture cards. Those face cards the King Queen and Jack, and then numeral cards from ace, all the way to ten some packs that like special have like fewer or different numerals pursuit, but when we talk about French suited cards a fifty two card deck. That's this is where we're heading. So the graphic symbols that's the hearts, diamonds clubs spades. They're called pips. Like you just like on a die, like all the dots on a diet. On a pair of dice or a single diet, they're called pips as well so the letter or number that you see in the top corner of Card, is called an index, so that players can identify their cards without having to spread them so widely as to risk exposure of their cards to opponents. Oh, that makes a Lotta Sense. and, though French suited cards are again. They're the most common playing cards that are used internationally. There are a lot of countries or regions that use their own regional cards that are preferred many games, but none of those have fifty two cards like when you're talking to fifty hardback. It's a French suited pack. And they almost always come with at least additional special cards, nowadays again called a joker, the long any suit. And they are required for some games and some games that use jokers require them to be distinguishable from one another, so in a lot of modern packs. The jokers are printed in different colors. You might have one that's red and when this blacker when the? Plane and one that's colored where they're given different pictures.

China's Efforts To Control Coronavirus Leads To Less Air Pollution

"China's efforts to control the corona virus have meant many residents stayed at home in factories. Just shut down. That had an unintended effect. Less air pollution cleaner air can improve public health. Maybe even save lives joining me to explain why that isn't so simple. In China right now is NPR climate correspondent Lawrence Summer. Hi Laurin I Rachel. All right first off just explain. How big the drop was in air pollution. In China it was significant. It was down a quarter two third in some places compared to the same time period last year. And that's because people have been driving less but the big thing is coal consumption because power plants and industry has ramped down. We're starting to see an uptick. As China's activity is increasing. And that hasn't been true everywhere. Beijing actually saw an air pollution spike outdoors and February. Because there was a weather pattern trapping the pollution there okay so if power plants factories were running less that also means carbon emissions dropped. That's right about a quarter now. That's a tiny fraction of China's yearly emissions but it still substantial because China is the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world so even that Short period of time in China equals would a state like Illinois or Ohio emits an entire year. Wow so even though. It's only a little bit over a month that we're talking about for these improvements. It's substantial enough to make a difference in people's lives. Yeah even a short term drop in something like air. Pollution can actually have benefits and a good example of that is the two thousand eight summer Olympics in Beijing to improve air quality during the Games government officials limited car traffic and they shut down factories and researchers actually tracked people during that time period and they saw improvements in cardiovascular health and lung health. They found that babies whose mothers spent their third trimester during the Olympic Games. Were born with heavier verse weights. Okay so that was years ago our people in China right now. Seeing those benefits yeah. It's a good question because the potential is really big here. You know. It's estimated that air pollution is linked to more than a million deaths per year in China. So I put that question to Jill. Baumgartner she's an environmental epidemiologist at McGill University. It would be a mischaracterization to say that the crow virus was beneficial to health because of these air pollution reductions in addition to tens of thousands of people who were impacted by the virus in China place stress on people's lives and on the healthcare system and lots of other sectors. She says that people with health conditions other than cove in nineteen may have not been getting the healthcare. They really needed during this time. Period and people may have spent more time indoors so they would have been exposed to more secondhand smoke potentially or indoor air pollution from coal-burning stoves which are used in some parts of rural China. Presumably though as the corona virus is contained in China. This drop we've seen in emissions is going to be a race by the fact that the factories the power plants. They're going to go back online and return to normal right. Yea and of course. There's an incredible human toll here associated with this reduction in emissions and there's also a high likelihood that it's going to be canceled out as China tries to make up for its economic losses and really starts ramping up power plants and factories in the near term. Npr climate correspondent. Lauren summer. Thank you

"I'm Laurin marriage and family therapist and together with a co founders of trained therapy group is psychotherapy practice in L A that focuses on treating trauma addiction sex and relationship issues and today on the show, we're talking about the way that trauma shows up in people's lives often in ways that they're mostly unaware. So we were talking a little bit about have how when I used to work in the prison systems, Lauren it was so apparent how much trauma was being thrown and experienced on a daily basis people were just in survival mode all the time and one of the things that I did while I was working in one of the prisons was create this program designed to help people reregulate themselves, and this was a long time ago. I mean, I'm aging myself a little bit, but it was probably thirteen years ago. Oh, when I developed this program, and basically I recognize that there were a lot of women in the prison systems says when I worked at a female facility instead of a male facility for one short year, a lot of the women were incarcerated on charges that were directly related to their sexual trauma histories. So what I mean by that is their charges revolved around things like drug trafficking and the request or demand of a boyfriend or a pimp. They revolved around things like prostitution oftentimes that women were compelled or forced into engaging in prostitution. They also were very aggressive and some people were incarcerated because they got into fights very frequently which is a trauma response, right or even addiction many people get arrested for many facets of addiction and trauma response as well. It is so he developed this program because I was recognizing that the talk therapy. They were exposed to was helpful. But it wasn't quite getting into, you know, the kind of resolve that they were hoping for and the prison was getting really frustrated because there were a lot of fights breaking out amongst the women. And there was just a lot of dysregulation. So the program that I created which we have adapted and us now very regularly at trained therapy group was called reviving thrive. And this program was designed to incorporate group therapy and psycho education about trauma. So calm. Conversations kind of like what we're having today each week about how trauma impacts women in different way. And then also incorporated a specific kind of yoga called trauma, sensitive yoga, which was designed for trauma survivors to get into their body in a way that feels safe and autonomous and well boundaried and developing interception, which most of them have been so cut off from right? So interception is our capacity to understand our body's internal cues and make sense of them. So anytime your stomach growls and you go, oh, I'm hungry. Congratulations. You've just had an interest moment or being able to recognize when you're anxious if you were to just say instead of I'm anxious like oh am noticing pressure in my chest. Because if we can notice that and just sit with it. We don't always have to react to it. Exactly. Right. So it's about building vocabulary. So what we noticed as we rolled out this program in the prisons is that the women who participated in it became so much more. Well, regulated that they were able to exercise a concern. Considerably higher level of impulse control the fights decreased their relationships with peers in the prison system, and their family and friends outside improved and their risk for recidivism, really decreased. Because they started to understand the ways in which they're dysregulation lead them into criminal behavior. So this is really a remarkable group, and we've seen this so often in our work at Triune, and I'm so excited that you are facilitating next. Thrive. It's going to be such a rich group. So again, this group is for women who are looking to recover from any kind of trauma, and it's a really safe space designed to help women examine how they've been impacted by different kinds of trauma, and how to get back into their bodies in a really safe and decided way. Yeah. And that being said, I just want to point out if you're listening to an earlier segment, we were talking about how many people don't remember their trauma, or they might have had a mental trauma. But they're noticing. They have a lot of the physical manifestations of trauma. This group is also designed for people that have those symptoms and might not even remember anything traumatic. Yeah. Now often have patients say to me will Kate. I didn't get sexually abused. I've never been assaulted. I've never been held at gunpoint. I don't know if this group is right for me. But the way that I gauge whether or not somebody's a good fit for this group is do they feel dysregulates to they feel like they can't contain their big feelings or reactive in their relationships. Are they? They struggling to function. Yeah. Or achieve their most realized potential when it comes to their sexual and relational abilities, you know, even life goals often shows up in business or their careers that they don't have the self-esteem, and they often get going into shutdown, and so they're not able to achieve some of the goals that they want to achieve right, right? We work with a lot of moms who say, I can't believe I'm yelling at my kids. The way my mom or dad used to yell at me or in a way that I never wanted to be right? That is a trauma response rate also deals regulation. Now, what's happening is they're unconsciously responding. That's where it's a trauma reaction another thing. I wanted to point out is that I often see people achieve a certain level of success and once they achieve that success. They self sabotage DIA professional success like talking about professional success because it's. Like overwhelming, and they you know, because of their trauma, they go into shutdown, and they sabotage so that they have this belief system that they are unworthy or don't deserve. It couldn't happen to them. Yeah. We see that so often. So that group starts when we're starting not group. It's gonna be Wednesday nights from five to seven to to our group and starting the week after thanksgiving. Okay. Wonderful..

I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. There is more grim news from wildfires in California. Authorities found the remains of six people yesterday in the devastated town of paradise that brings the total number killed in the so-called campfire to forty eight. It is the deadliest wildfire. California's history more than two hundred people are still missing. And there's growing concern about what to do with the thousands of residents who've been left homeless and bears. Eric westervelt joins us now from Chico where many evacuated residents are staying Eric. Let's start with the people who are still missing what our thirties trying to do to find them. Yeah. I mean, so many homes Rachel and paradise were reduced to rubble about ninety percent wiped out. So this is just a grand difficult. You know, slow task these trained teams are are going to have to go, and they're doing this going through this chart landscape house to house going to each burned out car looking carefully for potential remains the sheriff here is asked for more help and outside forensic teams have arrived to give help in about one hundred national guard troops are being sent in at the sheriff's request as well. And officially anyway. Rachel some two hundred people are still listed as missing their their these heartbreaking handmade posters up in evacuation centers. Asking have you seen this person? Ask him or her to call this number this fire started six days ago. I mean, what is what is the status have firefighters been able to contain it? You know, the fire is about thirty five percent contained this morning with some calmer. Winds fire crews have been able to put containment lines of around about a third of the fires perimeter. But you know, it it's still a big dangerous blaze whenever something like this happens. There are these inevitable questions right about whether government officials state officials did enough to warrant people to mitigate the damage are you hearing that? Yeah. I mean, the town did some evacuation drills and some education phone notifications to evacuate did go out. But not everyone got those. And there are questions being raised by some who evacuated that, you know, could more have been done to train to plan to prepare people for this kind of emergency. Especially since this town was built right into the forest and the threat of these big fires has grown with years of drought and these bone dry conditions. I'm last night Buchanan.

Jerry at stuff, you should know shorter is sometimes better. Welcome to bring stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff on Lauren vocal bomb. And if science fiction has taught us anything it's that giant piloted robotic humanoids will eventually be essential to the protection of everything we hold dear invading Taiji from another dimension, sending the acres rubies from planet, doomed better assemble voltron, and as James Cameron's aliens, toughtested nine hundred eighty six even a non-combat next suit can make all the difference against an extraterrestrial threat. Another influential example is our x seventy eight dash to Gundem the titular piloted giant robot entered the world in nineteen seventy nine as part of Yoshiyuki Tomino mobile suit Gundem franchise, which remains popular today. But could we build our own Gundem's? The simple answer is. Yes. In fact, scientists have been tackling various aspects of the technology since at least the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries during that time both Russian and American inventors explored the possibility of mechanically enhanced excess skeletons to eight humans in various. Physical movements since that time we've continued to see X skeleton advancements aimed at injury rehabilitation space travel industrial labor, and yes, even military combat and okay power armor is nice and all, but it's hardly a giant robot that stomps around and punches monsters in the face. What about true towering meccas? Well, the answer here is also a yes. Within the field of robotics. We've seen tremendous achievements in the creation of remote control autonomous and semi autonomous machines today. Military drones haunt the skies over various global combat zones and space exploration probes have delivered wheeled Rovers to other worlds, we've even given our wheeled robots arms for tasks from bomb dispersal to Martian soil, sampling and deep sea exploration. But none of these mechanical minions boasts legs, even the humanoid robot developed by Nasr's Lyndon, B Johnson space center didn't acquire climbing legs until its second iteration for proper Gundem's. One day walked the planet will need proper robot legs and this to his featured into the work of various robotics programs. The most famous of these is Boston dynamics military funded Walker programs such as big dog and cheetah and not just because they inspired the killer robots in the black mirror episode metalhead because while aerial and nautical robots can get by just fine without a leg to stand on terrestrial, robots are a different matter. A wheels are great on the road and unobstructed landscapes but legs provide the most versatility for diverse. Environments true. We like structures only rarely occur in biology such as the bacterial Jehlum a structure found in such species as the bacterium e coli legs on the other hand are natural selections primary solution to terrestrial transportation. So it makes sense to copy evolution in this regard. And biomedical engineers have looked to all manner of leg arrangements for inspiration from humans to millipedes. But here's the catch led to me. Movement requires a great deal of programming complexity and power it made feel easy for most of us. But our minds and bodies are highly evolved for the task even fully piloted Gunda say one where it's movements are mapped on those of the pilot would require a tremendous amount of biometric engineering and semi autonomous units would require the dexterity and spatial awareness to avoid the pitfalls of for example, the ED two oh nine in RoboCop which stomped around on two feet, but was incapable of navigating stairs. But the mecca dream is strong while various robotics companies continue to develop the necessary technology. Fi fans also go at it alone. Functional mecca suits have strolled the Playa at burning man and paraded at various conventions and Japanese engineer Masaaki Nagumo built a working life size model of a gun Gundem in two thousand eighteen the mecca dubbed L W Mona no FU stands twenty eight feet tall. That's about eight point five meters and weighs seven point seven tons or about. Seven metric tons. It's too. Big to leave the factory space that it calls home. But Ngubane rinse it and other meccas out for a little under a thousand bucks an hour. It's not protecting the world from alien attacks. But it's quite a hit for kids birthday parties. Though, one note here if alliens or giant monsters do attack well meccas might not be the best option. Anyway, as was pointed out in the magazine, popular mechanics, the acres from the Pacific rim films are entirely outclassed by existing aerial bombers and attack helicopters.

"Hi laurin. Hello. Thanks for joining us today. It's wonderful to be here. Thanks for having me worse. Let's get into it since we're talking about why people deliberately text and lower case. Basically like why you have you make the choice to fight auto, correct? Because you want it to be in all lower case, if we could start I guess talking just a little bit about what makes text messages or tweets different than other forms of written communication. So an interesting thing about texting and tweeting is that it's an informal way of writing language down. So it's different from other forms, like letters or contracts receipts even Email in some cases, because those are a former way of writing. So there are conventions. There's an introductory. We live. We have to put a comma you have to put the date in a specific place. You have to use a certain form of language that people generally perceive as very formal. And if you don't use the formal language it gives maybe the wrong impression. So if used very casual language, if you slang in a letter or a formal message written at written down, then it isn't seen as proper, and we're taught that in schools elementary school and many of us have been learning this for years and years, but when you get to text messaging or tweeting there aren't really rules for that that we've been taught they are more informal. They are quick they are intended to be more like those quickly written notes that you passed your friends in class or a quick note to yourself a reminder of something that's interesting that you might not have specified formal way of writing these things down. And so without those constraints of the structure. Being very formal than we have room to play and people can express themselves in a certain style in using different means of language that can show they're a little bit different from everybody else. They have their own way of writing just as we have our own way of speaking to each other. You know, when you're speaking language, we can be informal situations and informal situations as well. So a formal situation might be something like a podcast interview or a job interview or a public lecture where you're expected to use a certain kind of language, but when you're speaking to your friends when you're out at a bar when you're talking on the phone, maybe to your close family, you can use a more informal language at a little bit more of your style your own personal way of speaking can come out.

Welcome to bring stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff. I'm more in vocal bomb, and you've likely heard of Palio diet, the trendy regimens name is short for paleolithic and supposedly mimics the nutrition of ancient humans who lived about ten thousand years ago, cave, people eight meats, seafoods nuts and a few fruits and vegetables. Oh, and one other food source that doesn't show up on today's protein focused food, blogs other people archaeologists in western Europe have evidence that the precursors to modern humans eight their neighbors during the paleo ethic era. Most experts though have debated whether cannibalism was essential for the survival of these hominids, or whether it was part of ritualistic ceremonies to be classified as nutritional cannibalism, the people that paleolithic clans eight needed to be well nutritious. So just how many calories are in thi- or an ear. Archaeologist James Cole of the university of Brighton in England decided to find out Bing of the diagrams of cattle and pigs that illustrate. Different cuts of meat Cole mapped out the human body, then determined caloric count within each segment showing how much energy they would transfer. If consumed the results were published in the journal scientific reports a thi-, for instance, contains a hefty thirteen thousand three hundred fifty calories while the spleen is a modest one hundred and thirty overall the average human body has anywhere from one hundred twenty five thousand to one hundred and forty four thousand consumable calories. Some parts may take longer to digest you'll rack up ten thousand two hundred eighty calories from humans going alone. While others are snack size like the kidneys and contain about three hundred and eighty calories. The brain spinal cord and nerves were thinking Stu would be the most appropriate cooking method. Here will provide you with two thousand seven hundred calories and the bones contain about twenty five thousand bone. Broth is so untrendy right now after all despite all this talk of ancient eating habits coal concluded that other humans were probably not a nutritive meal of choice compared to competing. Available food sources one single willy mammoth, for example, containing a whopping three point six million calories would have given an entire tribe food for about eight weeks a human on the other hand would have provided enough calories for tribe to subside for only half a day, leaving everyone to wonder what's for dinner after just a few hours. Cole concludes that because of the relatively meagre calorie counts of the human body people. Eight other people for social or cultural reasons not for their health. So modern paleo dieters can breathe a sigh of relief there. Recipe. Books should continue to skip this particular ingredient.
