"leakey" Discussed on On Being with Krista Tippett

"Well, when I first went to Gombe, nobody else had studied chimpanzees in the wild. Right. Uncharted territory. And of course, the first problem was that the chimps ran away as soon as they saw me. They had never seen anything like this white ape before. And it was very wonderful at that time that my mother was there. The reason she was there is because the British authorities take any covers and last outpost the crumbling British Empire back then. And they wouldn't take responsibility for me coming on my own they said, I have to bring someone with me. So she volunteered. And so she was there to boost my morale and those early days because I get back dejected, the chimps had run away again and she was pointing out that on this peak that I discovered. I used my binoculars and she said, you know, you're learning how the chimpanzees make beds at night bending the branches over. You're learning how they sometimes travel alone and sometimes in small groups and sometimes in big excited gatherings. You're learning the foods that they eat and the calls that they make. So you're learning more than you think. And really sad that she left just two weeks before that breakthrough observation when the one chimbo had just begun to lose his fear, darling David Arabia. I saw him using and making tools to fish for termites. And you know, that was the turning point. That was what enabled my mentor, Louis Leakey to go to the National Geographic society. And they agreed to fund the research when the 6 months money ran out. 6 months, money came from a American philanthropist, and grateful to him still. And they sent Hugo van now to take photographs to make film. He became my first husband and it was his photographs and film in the geographic magazines and documentaries. But forced science to believe what I was saying because before that, many of them had said, well, why should we believe what she says? She hasn't read the college. She's just a girl. But when they saw Hugo's film, then they had to believe. When they saw what you saw, but I do think it's worth underlining because it's so hard for people now to imagine that as late as the latter half of the 20th century. Human beings thought that we were the only creatures who made tools. That's what some science believed. If somebody at that time had gone to the pygmies in the rainforest in Congo, they could have told you, I've sat and talked to them. They've watched it. Right. It was, you know, man, the toolmaker. It was Osman hill, who defined us thus. And so it was a shock, I think, to the scientific world. And when I finally was made to go to Cambridge, university by Louis Leakey said, I needed a degree. He wouldn't always be around to get money. And then also you were the 8th person in the history of Cambridge to come and you came in to do graduate work without an undergraduate degree, which was almost unheard of. Yes. Yes, I did. He said it was the time for that. Yeah. I was waiting with signed to said, well, you've done your study wrong. You shouldn't have named the chimpanzees. They should have had numbers that science. And you can't talk about personality, mind capable and problem solving or emotions. Because the unique to us, but the dog you mentioned, rusty, he taught me when I was a child that that certainly wasn't true, and not the only beings on the planet with personalities, minds and emotions. And we are part of a not separate from the rest of the animal kingdom. I was actually taught in it in the textbooks that the difference between us and all other animals is one of kind. Right. That's such an important distinction for you. And would you elaborate on what you mean? You write so important that there isn't a difference in kind and kind. What that word hold. The opposite of it is degree the difference is degree. In other words following Darwin's theory of evolution, you know, the species gradually evolve. And we just one of the species. And so, you know, I just could not believe that the scientists were saying that and talk to many of the religions talk to the Buddhists and talk to the indigenous people. They believe that we're part of the animal kingdom. They believe animals are our brothers and sisters. Right. And western science. And I think it probably stems from religion. God made man God made man different and God made man to have dominion over the birds and the animals and the patients. So on. But that is a wrong translation. I put Hebrew Friends law he grew word, which I do not remember. But I've written it down. One of my books meant something more like steward, not dominion. Right. The dominion. But that point of view that way of thinking and seeing also penetrated western science. It seems to me that the significance of your work in the self understanding of our species there are so many ways to talk about it, but it also these observations reconnected us. As you said, that we are part of the animal kingdom that we are part of nature, not just in our bodies, has in other ways, say that there's social and emotional continuity with the natural world that we're creatures rather than all the other creatures being creatures as another way people talk about, I think those genesis stories. Yeah, well, just very arrogant to think that way. And, you know, some people still do. The other thing which very dangerous about science, I was told at Cambridge that you have to be absolutely objective and you must not have empathy with your subject and to me that right from the beginning was so wrong because when I was watching a chimpanzee family, for example and one of the young ones did something a little strange. And so because I was empathetic towards them, I thought, well, if, you know, if they were human, they do it because of whatever. And that gives you a platform and you can stand on that platform. And then try to analyze what you've seen in a scientific way. But it's the empathy that it gives you notes that intuition that aha moment, which you wouldn't get if you didn't have empathy. I don't think and also the cold scientific approach, I believe has led to a lot of suffering on this planet..

"On Twitter at Jimbo talks in this part of the program. We're gonna be talking a bit about the importance of the intelligence committees on Capitol Hill. Every committee has its place. And there are various jurisdictions and things that are discussed and even those without the sexy titles, for example, agriculture and, like, talk about important thing. Subsidies and the like that mean real dollars and cents to real people. But different committees have, as I said, different jurisdictions and the different jurisdictions carry with them different levels of responsibility and as high as you could get on That list would be the committee's on intelligence. These are committees the deal with the most sensitive of American secrets, and of course, they do so in an atmosphere that is unfortunately known for high rates of Leakey's. That is to say, Capitol Hill, where leaking has become Virtually an Olympic level sport. And so we're going to be spending some time in this portion of the program, talking a bit about the importance of the intelligence committee and the importance of those who sit on that committee and the characteristics that need to be seen by those who do sit on that committee. So let's pause early and they will come back and we'll talk some more about this important subject on the Jim Bohannon show. In just a moment.

How This Massive YouTuber Got Banned For Life

"Get back to. This leafy situation. So if you don't know who he is, Calvin Leafy is here Aka leafy Lee Vail can only be described as well. A drama Youtuber he started uploading in twenty thirteen and got popular around twenty fifteen for making videos about other content creators, their lives, their personalities, their various beliefs, and what he saw as wrong with them you really never know with youtubers one day they could be completely fine next fucking. Oil issues that youtubers can't cancer just sitting here like, yeah, I am cancer but the best fucking cancer on this website maybe he's most notorious video from that era is a now deleted video making fun of another smaller content creator who has a learning disability. It's safe to say that after that he established himself as a bill in pretty quickly that said, he did have a falling Levi's fans saws, videos just harmless jokes and before he got. Banned. He had almost five million subscribers on youtube around two thousand, seventeen leafy took a pretty long break from youtube and it wasn't until recently that he got back to making the videos, he was known for videos about other very dramatic content creators like h h three, Keam Star, and I dubs that said the story of his eventual banning started in July when he turned his attention to poke over the course of several videos, leafy criticize polk means. Content, her appearance and even went as far as to say that she was hiding a secret boyfriend from her fans and that's specific topic became so popular after his videos that the Hashtag pokey main boyfriend was trending on twitter and that prompted this joke from pokey main who said in the past that she's not interested in making her love life public on the Internet leafy spokesman videos all went viral and around that time pokemon announced that she'd be. Taking a long break from streaming and content creation in general, and then recently pokey released an apology video discussing topics that range all the way back to twenty eight eighteen. But she did talk about some of Leakey's criticisms directly. Specifically, her relationship status and comments about her appearance if video is to address freezing comments, criticisms that I perceived I know this video is long overdue. I've seen a lot of people talk about the way that I look recently. There's WanNa. PUT It out there. I don't think I'm the prettiest person in the world. But I think that's okay everyone's entitled to an opinion I personally made the decision seven years ago whenever I got into streaming that I don't want my personal life to the part of my content and that's just what I'm GonNa stick by until I and whoever I'm dating whatever time decide otherwise that video was released on August eighteenth and then three days later on August twenty first Levi's entire youtube channel was gone. Now you choose policy when it comes to violating the rules Is very similar to twitches that we talk about all the time on this show it's three strikes, and then you're at each of the first times violated a policy you get one, and then the third time the channel is just deleted. Youtube cited quote multiple severe violations of Youtube policy prohibiting content designed to harass bully or threatened end quote as the reason for Levi's ban according to tweet from slasher. Now, when the story about lease Van I broke, there was some speculation about. Whether or not he was notified. But as I two strikes at all a representative from Youtube told Julia Alexander a report from the verge debt quote, his channel was terminated because it violated the company's harassment policy three times over a period of ninety days. No specific videos were identified, but they did confirm its permanent when I asked specifically about length of Ban and quote on August twenty first after he was banned leafy tweeted a youtube asking how he could get his account reinstated. In response to the news another Youtuber Cabos tweeted that leafy had never been notified about his first two strikes at all and that his account had just been banned out of knowing leafy himself also claimed keep never been given any strikes in a later comment that said back on June fourth leafy actually tweeted that he'd received two strikes on his account for harassment. There have been some people commenting that those strikes were reverted but that hasn't been confirmed by leafy himself or Youtube. On August twenty fourth leafy tweeted this still looking for his account to be reinstated. And when team Youtube responded, he had some choice words as recording this video leafy channel still nowhere to be found on Youtube and he's actually started to stream on twitch. So I, guess he's trading places but dr disrespect. Now with this whole story mind it's worth noting that Youtube has recently made massive changes to its policy requirements for users. Specifically, the way that content creators are supposed to treat other content creators. issue. In, many different ways and I think we have seen many we've seen some high-profile examples that we know have been Alec and that has caused us to take really hurt look at our harassment Halsey as I'm sure many of you know since like the beginning of time, one of the easiest ways to become popular on youtube is to make you videos about other youtubers. This is specifically true about what we would call drama content where creators be for call each other out. An extremely cringe boxing matches. With. That said, this latest situation involving leafy really seems to show that Youtube is taking stuff seriously and trying to figure out what's fair game the what constitutes harassment at this point with this story I? Think we're just GONNA have to wait and see if Lee will ever get back on Youtube if he'll be able to stay on twitch and if this new stricter policy is going to have long term implications for other creators as well.

"You do get free rides on the monorail with any price level? Well, yeah, I'm sure that's probably right. Felix or the streetcar If it existing on Felix, That's that that's that they threw. It has a bone to people who are complaining about the possible We are parking issues down there yet free monorail tickets with your season tickets. But somebody's clunking out 35,000 doesn't care that would not be writing the monorail that is coming in a helicopter and a hell of a hat. On top of the thing. The 35,000 He's probably not too bad when you consider what the Seahawks right if you had a box at Centurylink Field, and the tickets for the Seahawks are crazy astronomical, even get even get them. So 35,000. That's at 44 games that what it is? Yeah, Yeah, yeah, that's I mean, that's 44 games right there compared to the eight you get with the with the NFL. And they're also special clubs here for the people like you, John that will attend these events up in the clouds where they have the cathedral seating and things like that they'll candelabras and whatnot. So, but those are a little bit more expensive. I'm not talking about those prices because very few of us can afford that. 795 bucks take it 95 tickets. Yeah, yeah. I mean, if you think about me that 60 Imean if you look at the full season prices, it's going to be anywhere from 140 bucks to 280 bucks per game. Yes, for the lower bowl 90 to 170 for the upper bowl. So roughly, yeah. I mean, it's For the overflow for the life of that times, 326 games. You know, you have to break it down what you can afford, But the other thing is, is there also, you know, 5000 plans that you could choose their 40 different plans You could choose from as a depositor. What you run through all of them with have a cup of coffee up here. I'll grab the one That's really important is that 5000 the plans? The seats are going to be 100 bucks or less, okay overall, so they're really not that bad if you can afford that half season And then they're gonna have you know what? 5 606 100 tickets. I think for walk up single game tickets. Those will probably never be available. You know, you're gonna have to really jump on those because the demand is going to be great to see the NHL in Seattle. I mean, it's going to be great. And so it's going to be hard to get your hands on those tickets. But those are only gonna running 40 bucks. So that's a really good deal. I'm anxious to see what like Wicky does when he went down to Tampa and took a team virtually from nothing and then all of a sudden made it a cultural phenomenon to attend the games. And then how he was able to inject the community into the team and then the team into the community. The guy's a genius when it comes to this stuff to see how he's able to sort of take the politically correct super soy boy liberal of culture of Seattle and then Mel VAT in there with the hockey fan. If you've noticed when it comes to the NHL, the players don't kneel and the fans stand up and cheer and yell. Even though most of the players air from Canada, there's still saluting the American flag. Will Seattle will some of that sort of identity politics hate yourself because your white sort of stuff seep into the eight NHL here in Seattle? Or will it be inoculated from it? And will it still just sort of be the typical NHL hockey fan experience watching almost everybody being white play hockey? Well, I mean, the diversity is actually growing in the NHL, but you're right. I mean, they're they're far fewer, You know, black players and you you would expect, but that that's growing. There are a lot of, you know, floorboard, a lot of Europeans playing, but, yeah, I mean, it's hard to save me. The players are going to be the players. I mean, when you come into town, or you got to embrace the town, you're going to kind of get into it. Live there and kind of, you know, let the local You know, color kind of wash over you and you know, kind of take over some of that. Or you just going to kind of be the same person you were. I mean, who you can't answer that question. But I mean, I hockey is hockey. I mean, I absolutely love the way you write that down yet. Me a bumper sticker that says that exactly Hold on. You're actually right, Felix. I'm glad you called him out. You don't just come out with that. And just move on that That is what one more time Hockey is hockey. It's a different thing. People are not used to it. Ah, lot of people here are you and those that are that. You know the diehard tips fans, the diehard Hawks fans, you know, they get it. It's It's a fabulous game. If you've never been experienced in person, I mean, that's really the only way to see it is in person on TV. It's Lattis. You could follow the but you know the whole Sights and sounds. I made it to the old spectrum back in the day to watch the fliers like Louis Leakey seats I was in the way of talking No, is called view reserved behind half a post. That's how high I was. You know, I've been to the old barn in Chicago to watch the Blackhawks I I love hockey. It's a great sport, even though he never grew up playing it. And so I It is. It is the best sport to be in the arena and watch. I agree the drama. I don't whether it's the way they have the lighting on the ice and the speed. There's nothing else like it, and it is the best. I'm sure in Seattle, it's going to be driven. But in Philadelphia, the leaky seats for the ones were at the very top of the They're the spectrum and the H Vac system would lead down. Horrible yellow drops on you threw the game, but not enough to be continuous, but just enough to be like, Oh, wow. Wow right down my face, and then you go right back game and like 20 minutes later, another sort of leak of yellow stuff would come down on you, but not enough to make you want to move, but just feel like you were aware that it was up above you the whole time..

"That was what enabled my mentor, Louis Leakey to go to the National Geographic Society. Andre agreed to fund the research. When the six months money ran out six months. Money came from a American philanthropist and grateful to him still And they sent you could find no to take photographs to make film. He became my first husband and his photographs and film the geographic magazines and documentaries. But forced science to believe what I was saying because before that, many of them and said, But why should we believe what she says? She hasn't been to college. She's just a girl. But when they saw Hugo's film, then they had to believe when they saw what you saw, But I do think it's worth underlining because it's so hard for people now to imagine. That as late as you know, the latter half of the 20th century. Human beings thought that we were the only creatures who made tools. That's what Western science believed. If somebody at that time had gone to the Pygmies in the rainforest in Congo, they could have told you of certain talk to them. They've watched it right. It was, you know, man, the tool maker. It was Osman Hill, who defined us thus And so it was. It was a shock. I think to the scientific world and when I finally was made to go to Cambridge University by Louis Leakey said, I needed the degree. He wouldn't always be around to get money. And then also you are the eighth person in the history of Cambridge to come. And you came in to do graduate work without an undergraduate degree, which was almost unheard of. Yes, Yes, I did. He said It was fine for that. Yeah. I was greeted with science, too, said, Well, you've done your study wrong. You shouldn't have named the chimpanzees. They should have had numbers that science And you can talk about personality mind capable of programs solving or emotions because they're the unique tow us. But the dog you mentioned Rusty. He taught me when I was a child that That certainly wasn't true, and not the only beings on the planet with personalities, minds and emotions and we are part off and not separate from the rest of the animal kingdom. I was actually torture. It's in the textbooks at the difference between us, and all of the animals is one of kind. Right. That's such an important distinction for you. And would you elaborate on what you mean? And why it's so important that there isn't a difference in kind in kind. What? What does that word hold? The opposite of it is degree. The difference is degree. In other words, following Darwin, the Syria Revolution, You know the species gradually evolve on wage is one of the species on DH. So you know, I just could not believe That the scientists was saying that and talk to many of the religions, talk to the Buddhists and talk to the indigenous people. They believe that we're part of the animal kingdom. They believe animals are our brothers and sisters, right on Arab in Western science, and I think it probably stemmed. From religion. God made man God made man. Different God made man to have Dominion over the birds and the animals and the fish and so on. But That is a wrong translation. I put Hebrew friends. Yeah, the ripple Hebrew word which I do not remember. But I've written it down. One of my books meant something more X cured. Not Dominion, right? The Dominion. But but that that point of view that way of thinking and seeing Also penetrated Western science. It seems to me that the significance of your work in the self understanding of our species. There's so many ways to talk about it, but it also These observations reconnected us as you said. That we're part of the animal kingdom that we are part of nature, not just in our bodies has another way. You say it that there's social and emotional continuity with the natural world that we're creatures rather than all the other creatures being creatures as another way people talk about, I think His genesis stories. Yeah, well, I'm just very arrogant to think that way. And you know, some people still do the other thing, which very dangerous about science, I was told in Cambridge that You have to be absolutely objective and you must not have empathy with your subject and to me that right from the beginning, I was so wrong because when I was watching a chimpanzee family, for example. And one of the young ones did something a little strange. And so because I was empathetic towards thumb, I thought, Well, if you know if they were human, they do it because of whatever and that gives you a platform and you can stand on that platform. And then try to analyze what you've seen in a scientific way. But gypsy empathy that it gives you know that intuition. That Ah, moment which you wouldn't get it. If you didn't have empathy, I don't thing and also the whole scientific approach, I believe has led to a lot of suffering on this planet. I mean, you also experienced because I think you were open because you are seeing observing. You also experienced empathy. On the part of the chimpanzees you were studying, right? I mean that there's that moment with David Gray beard that you've described about offering him a piece of fruit, which he did not take that he took your hand instead. Now he took it and dropped it and then gently squeeze my fingers, which is how chimpanzees reassure each other. Which you understood as him, sensing your motivation and honoring it. Well, you know, the thing was, we totally understood each other in a language that clearly predated human spoken language. The language off the gestural and postural language is almost the same holding hands, passing one another kissing. Embracing, you know, just just when we communicate nonverbally, virtually the same as the chimpanzee's well so swagger on shake office and Her mail to consider sometimes remind me number human male politicians, price hurly bristle and they tried to look big and important and intimidate by punching their lips in a furious cow..

One hundred thousand years ago where we living in. What are we sort of? Look like we're living is a very small group of hunter gatherers out of the savannahs of likely eastern Eastern Africa.

It's amazing to think about the age of our universe. Two hundred thousand years is nothing. Like a blip live in time.

So we're talking about a huge change in the way we we look in such a short period of time absolutely so why can't why that's one of the big unsolved mysteries we we know that.

"Okay so a bit an exclamation here up until really the late nineteen forties most serious paleontologists believed in something called the out of Asia Asia theory and it basically argued that our species developed in Asia and the fossil record at the time seemed to confirm it but Louis Leakey was an outline liar. He was absolutely convinced that humans came from Africa and he became obsessed with proving it. Even though most self-respecting fossil hunters there's were digging in Asia. They had fines from Indonesia from China and to to have imagined that you could have found fossils in Africa. Didn't seem right. What they didn't know was the fossils that were found outside of Africa? Were all much younger anger than the fossils that they would then go on to find in Africa so of course the conventional thinking was that Lewis was looking in quite the wrong place. The Louis Leakey and his wife Mary persisted. They spent decades digging for clues in Tanzania in a remote area known as Olduvai Gorge Guard. George gives us stories of the past rows of the hissing starting from the day right away back two million years Louis leaky from an old national geographic documentary and it was at old of I gorge where the leakey's would append the entire field of paleoanthropology in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. When my grandmother? Mary found the skull of Zinjanthropus. Now the skull of Jan Therapists was one of the most significant Hamad. Fossil's astles found up to that point. It was one point. Seven five million years old far older than other fossils found in China and Indonesia and and proved that our ancestors came from an evolved in Africa so that fine really put then Africa on the map and make people then turned to Africa. It changed our entire understanding of where we came from and that fine launched a family dynasty of paleontologists hosts their sons Richard and Jonathan. Eventually the granddaughter lease who explained her ideas on the Ted Stage you are we. That is the big question and essentially we are just an upright walking big brain super intelligent intelligent ape. We belong to the family called the humidity we are the species called Homo Sapiens sapiens. We are one species over about five and a half thousand mammalian species that exist on planet earth today and that's just a tiny fraction action of all species that have ever lived on the planet in past times. We're one species out of approximately one. Let's say at Least Sixteen Upright walking apes that have existed over the past six to eight million years but as far as we know where the only upright walking that exists on planet Earth today. And it's it's important to remember that and in terms of our place in the world today and our future on planet earth in fact if you go back in time it this phenomenon that there are multiple species of hominids or of human ancestors that coexist at any one time. We've only been around for the past. Two hundred hundred thousand years is a species yet. We've reached a population of more than six and a half billion people but what happened is our technology has removed the the checks and balances on our population growth. My father so appropriately put it that we are certainly the only animal that makes conscious choices that how bad for us survival as species. Can we hold it together. It's important to remember that we all evolved in Africa. We all have an African origin. We have a common past and we share a common future evolutionary speaking. We're just a blip where setting on the edge of a precipice and we have the tools and the technology you and our hands to communicate what needs to be done to hold it together today. Will we do that. We just let nature take it scores Incense what you do by looking into. The past ashed is almost like a window into into the future. Will that that's absolutely right. I think when you work on fossils and you realize a species is there on its abundant for quite a long period of time and then at some point. It's no longer there and so when you look at that bigger picture. Yes yes you realize that the either you you change and adapt or as a as a species. you go extinct. I mean you think about neanderthals 'em who who lasted for half a million years right and we've been around for two hundred thousand I mean let's let's just talk about five thousand years from now. Do you think it's likely that we will be here in five thousand years. I couldn't answer that question. I really I I stop and think about it quite often. I as a species. Yes we probably could be here. But in what numbers possibly far fewer if we're really going to sustain ourselves on the planet but every species becomes extinct at some point. I think we will go extinct. The question is as Homo Sapiens. All we going to be able to adapt to the change that we're actually part of where we're causing such dramatic changes to the planet. So yes you do. Stop and think.

Jane Goodall: The Woman Who Never Gave Up

"Some people just don't quit. It's okay to quit occasionally, it's best to, but let Dr Jane Goodall be an example, to us, all sometimes you have a far fetched dream and instead of dismissing it, you do it anyway. And when you've cheered what you set up to do, just when you're at the top of your game, your dream might change based on what you've learned along the way your knee dream is bigger and more difficult to realize, but you do it anyway. Repeat into old age never slowing down. And you might even get nominated for a Nobel peace prize. The key to Dr Goodell's persistence, seems to have a lot to do with knowing what she liked from a very young age. And then just insisting on doing it. Her father gave her a stuffed chimpanzee when she was a baby. And she took it with her everywhere, even though it was by all accounts terrifying. She grew up loving to observe and catalog animals, and dreamed of one day living with African, animals and writing books about them for a living. Her mother, who was a novelist herself told. All that, that seemed like a perfectly reasonable idea, even though it was the nineteen forties and not at all. But middle class English girls were expected to do after she finished school. Goodall couldn't afford to go to college. So she worked odd jobs in London for a few years until a friend, invited her to visit her family's farm in Kenya at which point Goodall, immediately quit her job, and waited tables, until she made enough money to pay for the price of boat fair to Africa. While in Kenya. Her friends, justed, she contact the paleontologist, Louis Leakey curator of the corn did museum in Nairobi to discuss. Primates Aliki was interested in studying primate behavior in order to better understand early human species leaky hired Goodall as his field assistant on a paleontological dig and later asked her to return to England to research primates and raise money for a long-term observational study on wild chimpanzees, the gun base stream, national park in Tanzania into live nineteen sixty twenty six year old Jane Goodall began setting up her field station at Gumby, which would become the site of the longest running. Wildlife research project in history. British authorities initially balked at the idea of a young woman doing this kind of work on chaperoned. So Goodell's mother van accompanied her for the first few months Goodall observed, the chip head See's daily for two years before she earned their trust. Her method was just to watch the animals, and imitate their actions, recording everything that happened in a field journal. Two of Goodell's most important discoveries during this period, had to do with what chimps eight and how they went about getting food Goodall was the first to observe chimpanzees killing and eating the meat of small mammals prior to this. They were thought to be vegetarian and perhaps her biggest contribution to our understanding of primates was the revelation that chimps used collected and modified grass stems and sticks as tools to fish, termites out of their nests Goodell's discoveries were so significant Leakey said, now, we must redefine tool redefine, man, and he arranged for her to write a dissertation at Cambridge University on the behaviors of wild chimpanzees. It was accepted and she became one of only eight people ever to graduate from Cambridge with her PHD without first earning her undergraduate degree in nineteen sixty four Goodall married. Hugh on, Loic a Dutch wildlife photographer who leaky sent to record her activity in the field. They had a son in nineteen sixty seven who spent his early life with his parents at Gumby after Goodell in Loic divorced in nineteen seventy four. Good. All Mary, Derrick Bryson in nineteen seventy five who was the director of Tanzania's national parks during this time Goodell published books about her experiences in research at gone BEI, including in the shadow of man, which was criticized by scientists because of good old habit of naming subjects of her research. She called her most famous study subject, David greybeard, but the book was Beilby popular and has since been translated into forty eight languages as she lived and worked in Gumby. She began to notice changes to the chimpanzees habitat deforestation and mining practices forced the animals out of their homes and into spoiler in smaller areas. More than one million wild chimpanzees lift in Africa hundred years ago. But today, only a fifth of that population exists Goodall saw the writing on the wall. Which is why in the nineteen eighties Goodall changed her focus from observing chimps to working to protect their habitat.

"You take issue with that? No, I they're probably a pretender, you know, they're not going to keep hitting home runs on a record setting pace. There's not a lot of depth in the rotation. The biggest concern obviously is the bullpen. That's kinda held together. So far, I think they have five different guys with saves because they don't really have a real closer back there. So at some point once the injuries to pile up you start playing all these games without all the off days. I think the lack of depth on the pitching staff will come back to bite them. But on the other hand, you know, Markle Gonzales four, no, you say coochie, really good, Mike Leakey's. Mike leake is going to give you thirty. Okay. Starts, you know. And maybe if they're really lucky they get Justice Sheffield coming up at some point. And maybe Justin done, and they have the potential to reinforce that rotation. If needed. Yeah. And you know, that they're potentially some major issues when I take issue with the fact that you say the bullpen is the weakness, I think the defense is the weakness. Yeah. Eighteen errors in thirteen games. And that doesn't look like it's going to get better to anytime soon. Kyle Seager is probably their best infield defensive player. He's not going to be around for a while. And they're going to have to overcome that if they're going to continue to start a hang in there. No, that's really the amazing thing about the start is that infield defense other than Dee Gordon at second is atrocious. So, you know, they're they're force-feeding Ryan at third base. He's not a good first base and let alone at third baseman there. You know, playing Jay Bruce or Encarnacion at first. That's not a good fit. Tim Beckham's made Somare's really outside of Haniger and Malik Smith. Yeah. You know, it's it's really poor defensive team. I mentioned you were in Boston yesterday at Fenway park.

"Wants to take care of the basketball better to Dave eighteen turnovers for Luke maye individually in the last six games. So obviously averaging three game. A lot of those feel like they come in the post, and I don't have some stat to back that up, but it just kind of the feel of it over the last several games that gets into the post can get a double team or hesitates a little bit and loses the basketball. And so we have talked some about spacing this year offensively for Carolina. And how important the spacing on the floor is. And I think Luke's a big part of that. And kind of how he continues to help space the floor. How the tar heels continue to tack things in the half court if they all a little bit with their personnel as they have continued to do. I just wanted to see how his numbers change if at all as far as his efficiency as Horace his turnovers as Carolina moves along here through the month of February Jones on the subject of personnel. The tar heels not only without sterling Manley today again for another game. But leaky black on the breakthrough physical therapy injury report, the choice in North Carolina for keeping you and the game of life. And although black doesn't play a ton of minutes. Eric and our speaking earlier not having him on the floor for a handful of minutes could hurt Carolina today. Dave, we're both going to have a lot to say about this. Because I think that that Leakey's terrifically important you, and I talked about him initially in the in the pre pre game and. Even though he's only averaging Jones eleven eleven minutes game. Cumulatively on the season. He's so important to me. He's a glue guy. And I think that sometimes people see that as a negative that they say, oh, well, you really don't have a defined role. You're just glue guy. That means you don't score a lot. You know, rebound a lot you just you. But you're an important part. I tell you to me his void will be really missed and not the Carolina can't step in with seventh woods taking a more prominent role or Brandon Robinson, pulling some more weight from that standpoint. But leaky has a pretty sneaky approach when he's on the court. He makes an impact very quickly. And that's something that is unique to a lot of players so hit weather its size lettuce defensive capability offensive in transition to convert a turnover into a transition basket his confidence where he's taken one or two dribbles and taking a jump shot and made those shots from fifteen to seventeen feet all of those things. Roll into you really gonna miss him. And I think that he's in a situation where you're looking at is he out for a couple of weeks? That's typically what a good ankle injury or ankle sprain. Takes for somebody to come back at full strength. And then you just hope he's able to keep that healthy for.

"So let me get to the two most obvious questions which is outside of wearing a Philadelphia Eagles uniform. He has twelve starts Leakey's five and seven with ten touchdowns and ten interceptions. These are not laud laudatory numbers for him. But on the other side, I think not on the what hurts them as well is has anyone learned from Kirk cousins. So take him in any order you want. Well, I I mean. The problem. I think for for foles is you know, to your point. It's it's been these the two occasions where he's just caught fire, and and things he has sort of happened in a miraculous Manus. But if you go back and look at his first two starts beginning of the season. He looked like a dude who was broken down. You know, what I mean who had sort of pushed this as long as he could. And it was like bring runs back. I wanna hold that clip again. Like that's a good way to make money. And then when the, you know, the bright lights come up at the end of the season any and here, he is with this chance to save it all again, and sort of ride on his white horse. He he does it. You know? He's not gonna get anything close to what cousins got. I think it's it's apples and oranges at this stage of his career. You know, cousins getting eighty four million fully guaranteed. I think could foles get twenty year for three years or eighteen a year for three years with the first two years guaranteed. I think that's more. What we're looking at. I don't think he'll come anywhere close to the stratosphere that cousins, did, you know, the cousins thing was just first of all it's young quarterback. With a lot of upside that's not necessarily falls coming off a prolific season in a year in which we saw unprecedented quarterback turnover. There was so much demand for quarterbacks last year when you look at the trades the free agent signings and then five of them in the first round. So I think all that sort of congealed to make that so robust for him. I don't think that falls now one year later how many of those teams are ready to dive back into the deep end for quarterbacks. Not meant like I said Jacksonville should have done it a year ago Miami should have done in the year ago. Those are the two. Obvious glaring once they're in there right now of those two I think Jacksonville still delusional enough to think they're in win now mode. Which is why I keep hearing flacco and foles names connected to them. Okay. Let's move from one quarterback who's pretty good. And riding that wave as you suggest to a great quarterback Tom Brady and ask the simple question, what God's name is. He talking. What is he doing? This is this is the games that the patriots play. I mean, this is Bella check one. Oh one. How do you stay this motivated? How do you this chip on your shoulders? Eight straight championship games. I mean, that's ridiculous. You know, it's it's absolutely ridiculous. His postseason numbers, the two of them combine or absolutely mind boggling, so you, you know, you play these games at yourself where oh even though we've accomplished everything even though it's our birthright our season doesn't start till the middle of January season doesn't really start to the AFC championship game. I mean that's been the reality for you know, almost fifteen years. I think you need to play these games yourself and convince convince yourself that the world is still out to get you. I think these deflate dates and spy gates. I think you'd actually in a perverse way kind of feeds their fire. Probably in the same way. Everybody, you know, chanting fire Bruce Sam gets Dan even more stuck in and says, there's no way fire I'm gonna promote them and get making jobs. What are you talking about? I think it's the same with the patriots the more you you sort of give them. Any chance to take this approach of we'll show you well by golly. They generally go out and show you and at the end of the day. I don't know how much it matters..

"leakey" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind

"Volcanic ash about three point six million years ago or three point three point six three point seven and it had hardened and been preserved for us to discover in the twentieth century, and then so after these tracks were initially discovered in nineteen seventy eight Paul able a colleague of Leakey's discovered that the formation also contained a twenty-seven meter or about eight foot long trail of ancient hominids footprints. In addition to the other animal footprints probably made by Australopithecus forensis the species to which Lucy. Belonged and there are about seventy hominem and footprints at all in all in this formation. And so the thing about these footprints is they're quite clearly bipedal. You know, you're not seeing four legged movement is somebody who was just walking onto feet through this volcanic ash. The prince I've read are space close together, meaning short stride might mean short legs. And the prince also show a big toe in line with the foot rather than opposed to the foot as you see in our boreal apes alike. You know, your human big toes? Go straight out, the are boreal apes have more kind of a toe. Thumb like a big toe. Thumb that they use to climb trees and grab hold of stuff. And also their footfalls apparently went heel toe just like ours tend to so by about three point six million years ago. We we've got direct evidence that our ancestors in their close relatives were walking onto feet, and I also can't help admission I've read supposedly there's the story of how the prints were discovered because one of Leakey's colleagues paleo. Apologist named Andrew hill stumbled across the fossil formation when he and another Cali were running around throwing elephant pooping gentler. Well, you know, you gotta keep it light hearted on the dig right? So like, you said we we know of this based on mostly fossil remains in this. You know, we're looking at the bones of our ancestors, and observing what the gradual shift to bipedal ISM did to us. And it certainly certainly came at a cost. Yeah. Now to be sure it was it was worth it. I guess it made it easier for us to pick up fruits and pick up pick from low lying branches at gave us free hands for carrying food. And and also very importantly carrying tools carrying our young as well it allowed us to rise up in appear larger and more fearsome to our enemies are many enemies of the wild. This is something that I think we often don't think about but unless you're being instructed on how to react to a bear in the win the wild. And they say make yourself as big as possible. And certainly there are other animals do just the same thing. But that's one of the strengths of being able to at least rise up onto feet. Yeah. No. You can't know this for sure, but I tend to think that by people ISM is a sort of necessary precursor to advanced tool using intelligence. I mean, you see some use of tools in quadrupedal apes. But the fact that the fact that you're walking onto feet gives you free hands and having free hands seems like suddenly you've got much more incentive to be using them for all kinds of stuff. Well, it's interesting when you think about the animals that do display some form of tool use. I mean, certainly of the which are going to more or less align with the human experience of tool use. But then of course, you have the core of and fear the birds that that also use tools now, obviously, they are engaging in bipedal ground movement their wings are tucked away. But it's perhaps it's a slightly different situation with birds because those wings do have a purpose. They've just specialized there. Their their beak functionality. And and have learned how to use tools with that. Yeah. The same is true of dolphins. They're using when they engage until user using their snout octa pie silently different situation..
