A History of Hate
"Hey what's up. Welcome to in the thick. This is a podcast about politics rates and culture from poc perspective. I'm hosa and i'm and join us. Yes from chicago illinois. A week to be back in chicago is sung. Yung trae moro. She is the executive director of the national asian pacific. American women's forum sung yung. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me and joining us from philly. Philadelphia pennsylvania christine. She's a journalist and project editor at resolve phillies equally informed initiative. Welcome christine hi. Thanks for having me and before we get to our conversation. Remember if you hear strange things in the background it's quarantine life everybody's recording from home sirens door slamming dog barking. Yes so it's been a week because you know we've been following the rise of hate crimes phobia throughout the pandemic right. We've been talking about this. We've been talking about hate. Crimes impacting the asian american community. We've been talking about the consequence of word choice right so last week. We saw the consequent write the most violent manifestation of this hate after a white man goes into three. I don't even want to call them massage. Spa i want to call them like self help spas because people go there for whatever reason to feel self help self love okay. Massage spas in the atlanta area. And this man shoots and kills eighth. Six of whom were asian women now. Federal and local law enforcement officials have yet to declare this a hate crime. So it's again like gas lighting one
VIPER Rover Gets Powerful New Headlights

All Your Genes Are Belong To Us
"The story of gene patenting kind of starts in the nineteen seventies when scientists figured out how to modify genes in a lab until nineteen eighty living. Things mostly couldn't be patented but that year the supreme court said i guess. These new modified genes are inventions. And pretty soon after that the patent office started granting patents not just on those modified genes but even on genes that scientists had just managed to isolate an extract from the body which started this huge genetic goldrush hundreds of new biotech companies popped up and suddenly the human genome started to look kind of like an uncharted surveyors map with hidden treasure. Worth millions of dollars just lurking out there in the genetic code by the early nineties. One of the biggest genetic treasures was the gene responsible for most cases of inherited breast and ovarian cancer the b. r. c. h. Gene and women with the brca gene have up to a seventy percent chance of getting breast cancer. Compared to about just ten percent for the general population. There was an enormous international race to find this gene and when myriad genetics was founded in one thousand nine hundred one winning the race to find the brca gene was a top priority geneticists. Sean teigen was one of the first people hired at myriad genetics. I had never heard of myriad. In fact i was roughly employee number. Ten sean and myriad hoped that if they could find this gene they could diagnose people at risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer and create tests and treatments for it nasa whereafter in the end is to add years to the lives of the people who buy you know unfortunate chance inherited a mutation in one of these genes. The trick to locating this gene is to identify families where breast cancer clusters. And then if you compare the dna of the people in those families who got cancer versus older people in the family who never got it. It will probably lead you to the gene and in the race to find this gene. Mary has a huge head. Start mostly because of its location in salt lake city. Utah has this comprehensive database of anyone who's developed cancer in the state. It is also home to the mormon church which famously keeps extensive genealogical records show. They're thinking when if just cross-referenced reference those two databases they'd have themselves a ready made pool of promising dna candidates and then they could get straight to mining for mutations sean and his team at myriad get to work. They are working around the clock all hands on deck. How did you guys think about what the stakes were for you. Guys you know in this race returned to arrive there. I i was merely an existential question for the company. There wasn't any doubt about that. It was like if we can find this than the company is going to be successful. And if we don't find it we're probably gonna shrivel up and go hundreds of other scientists around the world were also looking for this gene if myriad doesn't want to shrivel up and go away they have to get to it i after four long years of mining. Dna myriad finally strikes gold they find the mutated gene living on chromosome seventeen from what is now known to be base pair. Forty three million forty four thousand two hundred ninety five to base pair forty three million one hundred twenty five thousand three hundred and sixty four myriad extracts and isolates gene and almost immediately stakes its claim on it by filing a patent but profiting off of that patent turns out to be a whole other problem. There's just no good way to make a drug or treatment based on this gene so instead they focused solely on making a test that would tell people if they have the gene. Though even tasked will be hard to make money off of because brca is like say cova testing where you might get tested over and over or a drug the take every day you know the same person will use a particular patent drug again and again and again and again but they get the information that they are mutations carrier wanted to. They don't need to have that test again. It's done so. The prophet situation is different. Myriad cooks up a solution to this profit problem i. They will make the cadillac of tests the very best cancer gene test of all time and they will charge a premium for it then myriad starts using. Its patent to do what happens. Do best to create a monopoly if anyone else tries to make comprehensive diagnostic test based on their brca genes including some researchers myriad says kindly cease and desist last piece of the prophet puzzle. They get to work driving up demand. Genetic testing for breast cancer was relatively new thing. People didn't really know about it yet. So myriad launched a big marketing campaign aimed mostly at doctors and clinics. But then they test out something that hadn't really been done before with genetic testing breast cancer runs in my family. My mother my dad's sisters. I wondered if it would be inevitable. The trade marketing their test directly to consumers talk to your doctor or visit brac now dot com myriad says they invested around five hundred million dollars to develop and market the test and that they didn't even turn a profit until two thousand eight and says patenting. The gene was the key. That's the only way myriad could get the time and money needed to create what they deemed one of the most sophisticated genetic tests to date attest that gave more than a million people information about their risk for breast and ovarian cancer. But as you may remember not everyone saw myriads business model in the same positive light first of all that direct marketing to a broad swath of consumers less than ten percent of women are even good candidates for this test so there were concerns that myriad was encouraging all of these people to try to get a test that most of them don't even need that cost thousands of dollars before insurance and back at the. Aclu that lawyer. Chris hansen by the mid-2000s he'd spent a few years learning all about gene patenting and looking into the ways myriad was doing business and he had a few concerns of his own for example. Chris says people who did take myriads test might have been getting a false sense of security because his cadillac of tests. The original version of that test did not screen for several dangerous mutations in the gene which came to light after they'd gone to market so that even if you are a result back from myriad saying you're fine you weren't necessarily fine which you know. Science is a process of learning but once myriad realized its mistake and fix the test if customers wanted to take their new and improved. Test that identifies mutations that was gonna cost extra and chris says myriad police it's gene patents so aggressively that no other comprehensive. Brca test was available. So if you were worried that myriad had missed something. There was no way to get a second opinion myriad. Genetics was the only place in the country. You could go if you wanted to be tested other labs could could technically do be. Rca screening were not allowed to do so because of Myriads hat myriad told us. Look we only actually filed two lawsuits against our patent but scientists. We spoke with told us that myriad also sent out a ton of letters that threatened legal action which had basically the same effect of shutting down testing efforts and many scientists were already frustrated with myriad because the race define these genes in the first place had been largely collaborative among scientists around the world and yes myriad had found the gene i but they've done it with the help of everyone else's published work and then they used their patent rights to essentially claim testing for it all to themselves and because really only myriad could test for these genes only they could gather certain kinds of really valuable new data about inherited breast cancer they collected and years of data most of which they also didn't share with the rest of the breast cancer research community. They had this gigantic database of brca one jeans and the various variations of the brca jeans myriad refused to share that database with the scientific community. We spoke to the folks at myriad and they told us that they didn't want to share their genetic database with the broader scientific community out of a concern for patient privacy. They say the pricing of tests has always been proportionate to the costs of developing and bringing them to market and they say they're patent strategy was in line with others in the industry. But chris's concerns went. Far beyond myriads business model far beyond myriad used it's gene patents for him myriad was just a symptom of a much more fundamental issue. The real problem to chris was that genes could even be patented at all. The notion that some private company to own a part of my body and i can't look at it without paying a royalty to some private company seemed to me blindingly obviously a civilization and when chris hansen sees a civil liberties issue. He knows what to
How Will Smith and Janet Hubert settle their decades-long feud on 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion'
"So we'll and the first vibe. Janet hubert made amends during the fresh prince of bel-air reunion which just premiered on. hbo maximum. They both admitted in hard time for them over the years then genuine deep into just how much the feud cost her. When i left the show. I have this new baby and no one. Family disowned me. Hollywood disowned me. What you didn't realize either. That i was going through a lot at home right. You can no no very abusive marriage. You know i have. Children been divorced and second marriage and i can see now the level of pain and the level of struggle. But you know those words calling a black woman. Difficult in hollywood is to kiss of death death in your baskin back. When the president i wanna be is someone who protects you not someone at unleashes dodds. Wow so that was pretty deep. Why do you guys think it took them so long to finally have this heart to heart conversation. I'm actually surprised that didn't happen sooner off camera surprise at all that it didn't happen sooner. You know when you're in a feud with samadi and it's fresh and it hurts and then after a few months after a year five years goes by you. Just have a hard place for that person. You're not mad at them but you just don't wish them well. I think they got so use of that. Feeling of anger towards one another that just became a part of their lives and they probably for a long time. Didn't even realize and god what that feud was even a bout because it had been twenty seven years. Oh i disagree see. I don't think she's forgotten. What that feud is about for one second. I first of all. I started watching this last night and then stopped watching before this part. Of course those excited rundown this morning. This is some serious stuff. I mean obviously watching the fresh prince growing up realizing that and had been switched out with no. I realized that and i don't even remember how old we were. We were young. But i mean for things have gotten as bad as they did will smith and one of his co stars and we kind of nowhere to be this lovable likable hilarious guy. Like i was really surprised and for her to say you know to label the dark skinned black woman. Difficult in hollywood like as somebody that i was working with somebody that i was supposed to be family with has derailed my career for thirty years so little. It's a little too little too late. And i'm a huge will smith fan but once i kind of read what was going on between the two of them. It still isn't actually clear as to why he had such a problem with her. Yeah it's just really isn't too clear to me either. Besides the fact that she was able to work with but people are difficult all the time and the exactly you know it felt like a red table talk situation like taking a note from his wife jada. he's now opening up and having these heart to hearts. But being the will smith that we see and we know when we love now i. I'm surprised he wouldn't have this revelation. Sooner right over the years. I totally give being young. And he midst like your egos in the way you you you kind of. Who's on top of the world. He was really feeling himself. And and there was you know a little chip monir shoulder right and they typically goes away after a little while. I mean he took a long time. I mean they forced. You're i mean not. i don't want to say. They forced her out but they gave her such as she could thank you. They divorced her out by just giving her such a bad deal. I just don't understand. I think i would. I would have a clear to us where to get understanding what happened if i kind of knew what really started all of this but i just feel like this woman's career has really stalled because what what happened. I don't think that that's right but hold on the shoulders of will united because if sounds like the whole team may have thought because i thought yeah just like you know have only beef with will but i think it's like a family like if from this and both of you don't are both of us. Don't stand up or say something you're mad at the whole family because somebody was supposed to have your back. I think what happened. The situation was yes we do know will smith as in light one. The one who's connected but leaders get that way until about five ten years ago in in state like he was. This was a sitcom that was obviously very successful. I think for me to wrap it up in a bow. There's a disconnect as to why the tension was caused in the first place and back to justice point words. It's functional little family. If you guys made in my life difficult every day at seven months pregnant. I don't know how i would go to

Butterflies Have Hearts In Their Wings. You'll Never Guess Where They Have Eyes
"Okay. Yeah. So I thought the photoreceptors in the general thing was pretty cool. But then on, explain to me what she does with butterflies in her lab at UC Irvine. Gosh is so fun to train. Butterflies is so cool to learn more about how butterflies seat Color Adriana trains them to fly towards. Let's say a certain type of Red Light. What we do is we train them to associate a colored light of a particular wave league with something. They really want butterflies always want nectar. And so we feed them by just placing them on the colored light I'm rolling for bosses letting them SIP. I, mean if the biggest question of Your Butterfly Day is who's going to unroll your purpose sticky next to a yummy pile of laboratory grade nectar. That's pretty good. Right, and after about a week, Adriana introduces a second colored light one, they haven't been trained to attacked. You give him the choice, and if they correctly choose the train collar, you know that they can distinguish between those two lights. Now, there's a little twisted us, which is that you have to test them over a series of relative brightness of two lights because. Some insects are positively or tactic meeting that they love flying toward. Aside from Understanding Butterfly Vision better. What kind of light and colors butterflies see could help us better understand how not to interfere with their environment. If we want to design buildings and unnatural objects that are sustainable dome inversely affect our animal and insect populations, we need to know something about what their sensory world is like. So. We mentioned that China has to make sure that the little butterfly isn't just flying towards the brightest light in her experiments. A lot of insects do that, and that's because scientists think it's part of a survival strategy. You can imagine that if you're a butterfly lie in forest under the canopy. It's a little bit darker under the canopy. Then if you're flying above the treetops and butterflies are constantly trying to avoid being eaten by lizards and birds, and one of the things that they do is they an escape response, which is to fly towards the Brightness Patch of light. They can find in their visual field. Yeah, and that's often a gap in the canopy. On, the subject of flying, it's actually something. Butterflies can't always do at the drop of a hat. They need to be warm to fly, but they're cold. So Adriana says, if you've ever seen a butterfly hanging out slowly opening and closing its wings that's called basking. They can open their wings. The wings pick up some like that hopes. Up Right, but they also have to be very careful. Opening their wings is really because it also means that usually they're more powerful parts are now visible to potential
"Just. Okay at one two three boom. Nice I'm still got it. This is why you go. US to some shows when when when wedding We have to literally music and visuals when something? Technical doesn't work so. Lights Lights One. Oh, yeah, absolutely I mean that's we should. Actually we could talk about that in a second. Yes it's it's a funny thing. I was thinking about your guys career just in general, and you know from when you started performing up until now just so much of the the not not the music, but the actual production of the show has changed. You know the level of the festivals the technical level the just how much money is going into the whole thing. It's Kinda Wild I. Wonder if that was was that an adjustment period for you guys, or was it just sort of gradually? You ramped up your show at a match it. Exactly that was a gradual thing, right? I remember even apart from bad back when we started. Obviously, we didn't even have a manager for years. Right, Bussey. It was like everything Wednesday buster another than we played shows even think of visuals than we created also visual loop for like remember. What was it like? Twenty five thirty minute loop? Yeah. Yeah Yeah, and it just runs in the background, right? Slightly at the beginning what manager? What's what's visual loop? It was not a DJ showed the DJ when we started was placed somewhere in the corner right, and then like some of the big room. KLOPP's eventually with the DJ a little more visual 'cause it start into. Hey, people are looking for that special guy, or they're coming for to guy and then. On on. I remember that when some shows in Holland I think were the first ones where we saw an anti club. All facing the DJ before. Dancing everywhere all over the place. and. It was so interesting. That was new doing those the early two thousands that we had total new kind of conduct dance culture. It was like people were into collapsed there were you the bar and dancing, and now it's like when when we play a show. Every single face in our in our direction, so thinking about it, yeah, it's actually a total different way of going out and partying and enjoy the night. Yeah, it's really interesting. I started DJ in the late nineties, and so I was right on the tail end. You know when I started when I started going to events and all that it was very much the old days that you're talking about where it was dark you. You couldn't really see anything I didn't know where the DJ was, and then kind of right at right at the end of the nineties when I first started getting my first real show as when that switch happened, and it was really weird. I wasn't expecting it for you guys. Was that something you? You know in the early days where you comfortable with that. Did you feel like performers? You want to be on stage. were. Just mentioning the one word, a DJ turned more into a performer these days. It's more occur forms as some people come more for the event performance than eventually for Dha Music which still? Meal, wrapping it up in what what I say now still Farrah's The music is always the center and should be key over tension, and that will always be what's most important for us, but of course these that you cannot you cannot just you know. Look on your players at a not interact at all with the crowd. You can't do this these days. Maybe, I can speak for the two of us we. We grew into that where we're never the guys that search for every Kendra. Oh, we gotta jump in. but yeah we. We grew into the situation with comfy with it now it's it's fun. And when when the crowd is so much energy to to cheer back into It's awesome that. Really emotional at driving and so it wasn't it was we. We grew insulin and wait. We really enjoyed. Now may be boring to still do just the cool Dj Noah you right so. It's nice to see when they all face. You also especially back then because. The production was as Baker, was still about the music, but there was still facing. You just felt like they really care about the music they really. WanNa hear new music and expect you to surprise them and it was. Good to see all this attention than it made us also better DJ septic.
4 Ways to become Re-Inspired with your Space
"There I'm Christina Browning your host. If you feel like your household, frustrations are stealing away your life hour by hour. I discussed home, functionality aesthetics and automation with a bit of history and a dash of psychology. This isn't your typical. House podcast. I'm a realtor and home functionality coach I geek out on various subjects, regarding your home and yard challenging you to think of your space differently to get the most out of every square foot I post questions for you to think through about your space and your reason, this podcast is all positive making adulting easier one podcast at a time. Remember. There's no such thing as perfect, but you can still aim for your best every day in this episode. Let's discuss home, functionality and aesthetics four ways to become reinspired with your space episode thirty five. The top thing that affects how space functions and feels. Is Light. One refreshing your space, look I to your windows and light fixtures. Think in terms of layers supporting not just the look you want, but the life you want. And my leading in the most possible light from my windows. Artificial light has caused some confusion in our bodies, which have evolved to respond to the stimuli of sunlight and darkness. The responsiveness to natural light is called the Circadian Rhythm, which is the twenty four hour biological cycle of almost all living beings. It's primarily influenced by light reception. Natural Sunlight improves our sense of wellbeing, so lighting can't be taken lightly. Do you have dimmers on any lights, and if not might that help achieve the mood, you seek depending on the time of day and task at hand. I will dive into some questions as always to ask yourself about this when we get to the question segment of the podcast coming here soon. Another option here is to get a pair of Phillips who lives which when used with their APP have a warm night light option, a dimmed option and a bright work light option all accessible from the APP. Now that many of us are spending more time at home. These lights can help you. Stay productive or adjust to a new schedule and support activities like meditation for example. Hugh labs has a collection of formulas to tailor my Phillips. Lytle, exactly what I need throughout the day I like brighter tones in the morning, and as the day goes on, I prefer it to become warmer so that I can slowly wind down. They have four recipes. Energize concentrate, read and relax. I even installed a recipe called candlelight, and I it no candles necessary. Next I want you to evaluate what you want your visitors to I notice when they enter the room. Your refreshing now whether you have visitors or not is irrelevant. Just thinking from this perspective, though helps with this exercise, it requires you to create a visual hierarchy. If you're standing in the living room for example and you want the focal point to be your fireplace. Take a photo of the room like with your cell phone with it in the center of your photo and evaluate snap. You just took. Could it go into a magazine feature and I'm Nabet Bet? Your answer is no, which is totally normal. What could I do to make this snap more appealing? Let me emphasize magazine. Quality is not everyone's goal here, but I'm suggesting it's merely another way to see your space differently looking at your photo. Could you minimize the stuff around the focal point? Maybe you don't even have a focal point great. That is a good place to start. This is a good way to refresh. Give your space vowed focal point. I find it so interesting when I take a photo. It reads so differently than what I see with my eyes so I use this as a tool for refreshing my space.

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit Crumb. I'm continuing my investigation into the concepts of time travel yesterday. I mentioned three resources. Final countdown. A movie where you can watch. Martin Sheet explained the grandfather paradox of time to Kirk Douglas. Kind of a fun movie came out in the eighties and Christopher Reeves in his movie somewhere in time takes it to a mental intellectual level kind of away from what physicists would like to think when they think of time travel and of course. There's the book by She. Wells time travel Idea that you could just go to the future. Go to the pass by pulling a switch on a machine. One of the things that happened yesterday was I mentioned the grandfather paradox of time and I gave you a place to watch Martin. She talk about this. I got a lot of emails saying why. Don't you explain it? So here goes this kind of scattered a little bit but give you an idea. Besides a physical problem time travel may also come with some unique situations a classic example. Is the grandfather paradox. Which time travel? It goes back and kills his parents or his grandfather. The major plot line terminator movies interferes in their relationship. Now think back to the future so that he has never born or as life is forever altered. That's back to future if that were to happen. Some physicists say you would not be born in one parallel universe but still born and another others say that the photons it makeup light prefer self consistency and time lies which would interfere with your evil suicidal plan. Some scientists disagree with the options mentioned above. And say time travel is impossible no matter what. Your method. The faster than light. One in particular drew derision from American Museum of Natural History astrophysicist Charles Lou that simply mathematically doesn't work you said also humans may not be able to withstand time travel at all. And that's what we're lucky nap today. Several theories time travel traveling. Nearly the speed of light would be necessary and take some kind of centrifuge. But that would be lethal. So let's go back to the beginning and say what is time while most people think of time as a constant physicist Albert Einstein showed a time is an illusion it is relative it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space to Einstein. Time is the fourth dimension space is described as a three dimensional. Orito and we know that we have up and down forward and back left and right those who are dimensions but he talks about a fourth dimension which provides traveler with coordinates such as length width and height showing location. And then that fourth dimension provides another coordinate or direction although conventionally it only moves forward. Einstein's theory of special relativity says time slows down or speeds up depending on how fast you move relative to something else approaching the speed of light. A person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also under Einstein's theory of general relativity gravity can ban time picture a four dimensional fabric. Call Space Time. When anything that has mass sits on that piece of fabric it causes a dimple or bending of space time. Let's stop and talk about this fourth dimension for a moment if you look into a Koi pond and you see the fish and they have is on either side of their head they are two dimensional creature stay left and right and they can move forward and back. There is nothing about them. There is no third dimension so if I grabbed one of the Koi and lifted about of a pond that would introduce the Koi to a third dimension so what Einstein in his speaking of this fourth dimension or call what he calls Space Time. That is something that is above us. It is literally another dimension so there you have the idea of Space Time. What that is that is that fourth dimension that's above us like the third dimension this above a Koi pond for example objects move on a curved path in that curvature of space is what we know as gravity both general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS Satellite Technology. That has very accurate time. Pieces on board the effects of gravity as well as satellites increase speed above the earth relative to observers on the ground. Make at the UN adjustable clocks gained thirty eight microseconds a day in a sense. This effect called time. Dilation means astronauts are time travelers as they returned to earth very very slightly younger than they're identical twins that remain on the planet. One possibility could be to go faster than light which travels at one hundred and eighty six thousand two hundred and eighty two miles per second. That would be a vacuum Einstein's equations though show that an object at the speed of light would have both infinite mass and a zero of length. Go figure that s beyond me.

"Is in Portland Oregon hi there al well you know what's going on so I wanted to find out some information about different words and we're facing cameras for your car dash cams I wanted to do I'm sorry dash cams are called yeah got it so we don't want you to do that is my wife was recently on our way into work and a lady ran a red light and my wife manage not to her too bad but ended up hitting her and the lady was saying that my wife from the red light there was some damage this lady ran the red light unfortunately there's another car pulled up and so now the lady the other way and run the red light first of all is the best way to take care of that is to have him sooner Kerr so that you can prove that the other person and you know and dash cams are very popular for example in Russia where there's a lot of insurance fraud and that was I don't remember what we used to sell dash cams for years here but then it just got to be a little bit crazy because I really think that the the age of the dash cam a couple of things that you want to keep in mind is that you know these videos that your story now on your memory card they should be stored up in the cloud and I think that's going to be the next iteration but for right now we're still storing things on our current so what you want is a front facing in a real facing camera okay couple things she wants you want to if you want a nice battery that's going to last you for a while some of these cheaper dash cams and I missed your your way from the cheaper ones out that the batteries need to be charge like every couple of hours which is unrealistic but you still want to dash cam that runs off a twelve volt power source you want so called G. sensors in this dash cam so if there is an accident detected that it automatically knows to record and then.
How the Berenstain Bears Came to Be
"Three little bears one with the light. One with the stick and one with the rope. A spooky old tree three do they dare go into that spooky old tree. Yes they dare. These are the opening lines from one of my favorite children's books of all time called the spooky old tree by Stan and Jan Bernstein. You may have heard of the Bernstein bear books but growing up. They were some of my all time favorites. I have many good memories in my mom reading these books to me and my siblings when we were little tonight. We're going to learn about Stan and Jan the authors and illustrators of these fun and Imaginative Adjective Stories Janice this grant and Stanley Barron stain. Were born in the same year in the same town nineteen twenty-three and Philadelphia Pennsylvania. They they were born during the Great Depression which was a very hard time for most people. Living in the United States there was very little work and most families were very poor four Shannon. Stan didn't know each other when they were little but they had similar interests and both wanted to go to art school at age eighteen. They ended up going going to the same school and many other on the first day in a drawing class taught by a teacher named Miss Sweetie Stan and Jan instantly liked each each other and spent the rest of the year working on art projects together when World War Two started Stan was able to use. This is art skills and became an illustrator in the army and illustrator is someone who draws or does illustrate which is another word for drawings however rejane joined a large group of American women who helped build things for the war effort. She was a riveter. Riveter is someone who uses bolts to attach pieces of metal together during the war. Stan and Jan were separated but when the war was over they met again and were married in nineteen forty six. At first Stan and Jan where teachers but they really wanted to be cartoonists and soon found jobs illustrating for different magazines and newspapers. Most most of their illustrations were funny in nineteen sixty. They wrote their first children's book together. They had lots of ideas about who the subject of their books should be but but eventually they decided on bears because they could stand on two feet much like humans they call them. The Baron stained bear family after their own last name. By this time they also had their first Leo and wanted to include some of the funny moments and ups and downs of raising a child in the books. Papa bear were overalls overalls and a plaid shirt in Mama. Bear were a Polka dot dress and like their own child. They had one lively bear cub. Their first stories ended up being read by Dr seuss. One of the most famous children's story authors of all time. You can find our other episode about Dr Seuss. Dr Seuss love the stories and gave Stan and Jan lots of ideas about how to improve them. Their first big story was called the big honey hunt after through their bare story. They thought that switch to a different animal like a penguin but the first book did so well. They decided to keep writing more. Dr Seuss made sure the name. The Barron stained bears was added to the top of every book and shortened their names from Stanley and Janice to Stan and Jan without even asking them over the next several years standing Jan work from their home in Philadelphia and created hundreds more Bernstein bear books included topics like going to the dentist making new new friends. Bullying messy rooms honesty and healthy eating together. The Bear family lived in a big tree house down a sunny dirt road deep in bear country leader sister joined the family and finally honeybear. The baby bear came together. They worked and played and learned lessons about life. And that was the point of so many of these stories by standing Jan to teach the listener about family life and making good decisions also called moral stories over the years the Barron stains wrote over three hundred books and sold over two hundred and sixty million copies of their books. Many have also been made into TV movies and television series a few computer games. I mentioned the spooky old tree. You'll have to check that one out. A few other favorites were bears in the night. Right and the bears vacation. If you're interested your library should have them or you can find them online. Stand Jan have now since passed away but their sons is Leo and Michael have carried on the business. Lee is also an artist and has illustrated many of the new baron stained bear books with his mother Jan before she passed away.
Satellites Track Status of Nation's Food Supply
"Have you ever wondered. How much food is growing right now? Across the globe. Satellite data is for the first time giving us nearly real time data. Uh on which trump's are being planted which crops might fail because of climate impacts like drought or disease and how many because of rain for us to being cut down for grazing land. Using this information we can better path famines reduced price volatility and work out how to feed a planet of nine billion people by twenty fifty. That's a WHO small undertaking and it will have huge impacts on everything from water usage to soil health to help us. Navigate is fascinating new science. I sit down with Dr Inbound. Becca Russia the director of NASA's food security and agricultural programmes. Dr Becca Russia is also the CO director of the center of Global Global Agriculture Monitoring Research and the University of Maryland in bow was rented by the US State Department for her work on food security and Technologies winning being the US Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Science Prize Innovation Research and education awarded by the White House's John Holdren the former assistant listen to president. Obama for Science and technology in bows background does in soil scientists in remote sensing and she received a PhD in Geographical Sciences. His from the University of Maryland in bows one of the world's leading experts on using remote sensing for global crop forecasting in addition to being achieved the balance. My cousin and one of my favorite people ever in Bell and her husband Dr Guido Portillo a molecular physicists. have to amazing daughters Natalie and I need it. I caught up with him about last week in Tel Aviv. which is where she was born? Yes born in Israel shortly after moved to the states until I was five and then came back from age five to eleven then moved to Kenya and then moved to the states in one sense cents. I feel very much like an outsider. In a very in another sense I feel very much home like I never left. And it's the first time I bring my two daughters here which is quite emotional for me for to have them here. Seeing where I grew up and a big part of my life and who I am so do you speak Hebrew with them in bow I do. I speak Hebrew with them and so for them. I think it's been An interesting experience to come to a country where everybody speaks what we speak at home and usually nobody else speak so kind of our secret language. So it's been fun to to see them connect and in some way feel very much also that this is part of of who they are two and what things you miss the most about Israel the sun in the winter having twenty degrees in January or end of December the familiarity of people and kind of the directness of people. Anything I missed that I also kind of get confronted with it and in other ways my friends really good friends. Family food vegetables fruit the so Tokyo food food in battle. One of your your light. One of the leading experts in the world on remote sensing in crop prediction. Why full you is is crop and food security such a big issue on a planet which currently has seven and a half billion people on it food security is probably one of the biggest challenges we face in this coming century today day? There's over eight hundred twenty million people food insecure around the world. That number is on the rise again. Due to several reasons one is increasing populations and increasing in demand on meet another big driver's been climate extremes and large droughts as we look forward and and different forecasts predict that we need to increase our food production fifty percent by twenty fifty and there's some variability around that number. But I think some of what's been driving that is one increasing populations to increasing middle middle classes in places like India and China which means there's a much bigger demand for meat. And if you think about the amount of food you need to produce meat versus Vegetarian anti at that obviously has big demands. It's quite an alarming trend and at the same time. Obviously there's a lot of technologies and changes in terms of our production. What we need to do is to be able to increase our food production on the same amount of land? There's not a lot more land that we can really bring into cultivation to meet that demand so that's pretty alarming like increasing food supply by fifty percent by two thousand fifty which is only now thirty years away with how growing the amount of land. How are we going to do that? Part of it is increasing increasing. The intensity of of our captivation of it has to do with the technology of seeds. And I think we're continuing to see increases in yields are low. Not as fast as that was in the past. Some of the big increases we're seeing today is from increasing the number of seasons since I think if you look at Brazil for example with two mays seasons. That's increased tremendously the amount of food. That's being being produced looking at different varieties and more whether it's drought resistant varieties. That's going to get as part of the way there at least to your specialty is helping countries knit together. Analyses of determining what the future food production season is going to look like. Why is that important to know a lot of what I do and try to understand what food production is GONNA be for this current season as it's developing and that's really important because today our world is it's very much globalized interconnected? So what's the quantity of of wheat that's going to be grown in. Russia has an impact not only in Russia but it really has a global impact. Let's really important taft. Transparent information to have global information of how much food is being produced at at any given time that has an impact on how a government decides to to plan their actions. I am policies. It has an impact on humanitarian organisations and trying to forecast where there might be food shortages. And how do you mobilize as soon as possible. and has obviously a big the impact on markets and international food prices given the importance of all that. How did we use to track? Whether it's a country that has a system of farmers. There's reporting everything that they grow in tracking it that way. Various statistical surveys to make sure that there's a statistical representation to that and obviously some countries do a better job at that in a better accuracy and timeliness than other countries. Do I mean the start of satellite monitoring for agriculture. Goes back nearly as early as satellite. Remote Sensing doesn't in general in the seventies and how the US got involved in. This was a big drought in Russia. One of the big wheat production next countries at the time of USSR the US wasn't aware of that drown in that impact and in what ended up happening is the US sold. We'd at subsidized prices. Essentially and then had to fight back in the international markets at much higher prices because there was was a shortage who was I did at Sparta Program at the time that Usda and NASA had together called Lacey and the objective of that really was to try to monitor what was going on outside of the US in the major food production especially we at the time we in corn production and the idea was that satellites were really the only way ah the US could look at other countries in the world getting a sense of what they were producing. And if you look today at what. The vision is for Satellite Remote Sensing and agriculture. It's not all that different. Then when it was over forty years ago. What is different? Today is our capability to finally reach that goal. So you had this vision forty years ago being able to know what another country's crop would yield like what change in satellite so that we now actually have that granular level detail to be able to know with better accuracy. So few do things. One is the quality of satellite data itself the frequency the resolution and resolution. If you think about it is what objects you can discern on the ground from a pixel which is how we look at the imagery. It's the satellite data being open and free at at multiple resolution. New satellites that have come into play both from the European side. Something called the sentinels which today imaging the world at ten meter resolution close to every three to five days which is looked along with land sat satellite for example from the. US giving US close to every three days view the world. So where would you say ten meters just to break it down to that. Means every pick cell is ten meters. That's right it's ten by ten meter resolution. So that means you can can discern quite a lot and if you think about looking at the whole world at ten meter resolution. That's a huge amount of information. And so we've had huge advances in terms of the satellite data also commercial satellite and a lot of cubesats that are going into space which are now giving us close to daily data three-meter resolution and then our compute power to be able to process that kind of imagery and advances in modeling and computational technologies to really be able to utilize that data has been a huge revolution in terms of what we're able to do so go all these lights. NEW ONES IS ACCU- ones. Those are like really teeny little satellites. That are going out. That's right. So they're often termed as shoebox size satellites. They have been sending up in in fleet so I think today. They're close to four hundred or more earth-observing satellites that are called cubesats so the data quality is not as high. They don't have as many spectral bands for example as as some of the other satellites but they're cheap to send up and they've also revolutionized the space of commercial satellite. So those aren't free. They're much more affordable than than they would have been in the past. What are you looking for right? So we're trying to basically look at signals us of crops so one of the things we're trying to understand is where are the crops of the world being grown and there's still huge certainty around that one would think that we would know that very well and And there's still a lot of room for us to improve that second of all is which crops are being grown wear and if you think about it every year that's changing so there's a lot lot of crop rotations and so what that really means you want to be able ideally to know what's being grown in each field during the growing season so that's one of the the big objectives is to be able to classify Within the season where things are being grown to be able to both discern how much of an area is being grown. That's one part of the production equation and the other side is what the yield is going to be and so what we WANNA do. It's really important to have time series of data to look at it through time to look at the volition of the development of crops. But but when you said earlier that we don't actually know where food is being grown. What does that mean if you think about it as a map of where the the world's croplands we have several of those maps but we're trying to continuously increase the accuracy of that? And if you think about crop expansion or changes in where croplands are for example title Brazil and and huge expansion of croplands. There is really important to be able to update that as frequently as possible in particular in in areas where there is a lot of change and we still need better information on where the global croplands are and then more specifically within season a crop type maps.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski breaks with GOP colleagues
"Democrats Democrats recording recording them them the the White White House House worries worries about about them them they they are are Republican Republican senators senators who who may may not not be be totally totally on on the the trump trump bandwagon bandwagon when when it it comes comes to to making making up up their their minds minds on impeachment Bob Constantini spots lights one who is using the holiday break to weigh in on what her constituents want Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer can take some comfort in knowing a few Republican senators may not be thrilled with a simple quick impeachment trial for president Donald Trump not always a supporter of the president Lisa Makowski tells her home state of Alaska's Katie you you she was disheartened to hear Majority Leader Mitch McConnell saying he's coordinating with the White House and in fairness when I heard that I was disturbed to me it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense four Republican senators will have to vote for witnesses to make a majority assuming all Democrats would do like wise after initially wanting witnesses including hunter Biden Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi effectively putting Democrats on trial president trump is ready to let McConnell handle things even if it means no witnesses what he wants very smart guy very good guy very soon yeah just in case there was any doubt here's an audio collage of what Senate leader Mitch McConnell told fox news on Monday will be working through this process hopefully in a fairly short period of time in total coordination with the White House counsel's office and the people representing the president I'm going to coordinate with the president's lawyers so they won't meet a difference between us on how to do this I'm gonna take my cues from the from the president's lawyers Lisa Murkowski is the first Republican to openly question how that works with the impartiality all senators are supposed to swear to carry out in the trial I heard what a leader McConnell had said I happen to think that that has further confused the
Warnings over Trump inquiry fly between Pompeo and Democrats
"The breaking news of the hour is a letter signed by three House Committee chairman to the Deputy Secretary of state responding to a letter earlier in the day by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in which secretary pompeo attempted to block blocked testimony from current and former State Department officials the letter tonight says dear Mr Deputy Secretary we are responding to a letter sent earlier earlier today by Secretary of State Mike pompeo attempting to block testimony from current and former State Department officials sought by our committees for depositions as part of the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry. We are writing to you because Secretary Pompeo now appears to have an obvious conflict of interest he reportedly participated personally and the July twenty fifth twenty nineteen recall in which the president pressed Ukraine president to investigate the son of former Vice President Joseph Biden immediately after Ukrainian president raised his desire for the united its military assistance to counter Russian aggression sanitary pompeo should not be making any decisions regarding witness testimony or document production in order to protect himself south or the president any effort by the secretary or the department to intimidate or prevent witnesses from testifying or withhold documents from the committees shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the impeachment inquiry given the secretary's own potential role and reports of other State Department officials being involved in or knowledgeable knowledgeable of the events under investigation that committees may infer that he is trying to cover up illicit activity and misconduct including by the President present this would be a blatant cover up and clear abuse of power that letter to the deputy secretary of state tonight follows a report by NBC News. It was tonight that the Inspector General of the State Department has made an urgent request to brief several congressional committees tomorrow about documents related to the State Department and Ukraine according to multiple congressional sources the request from the State Department's Inspector General comes on the same in day that the head of the State Department Secretary Mike Pompeo sent a letter to the House Foreign Affairs Committee saying that he will not voluntarily make make available five current and former department officials for depositions by the committee one of the witnesses that the House Democrats want to hear from has already agreed to appear for deposition on Thursday Kurt Volker resigned from the State Department last week and therefore is no longer under Mike Pompeo's control in this matter. The pompeo letter does highlight light one point that might be part of the discussion that the State Department's Inspector General urgently wants to have with the congressional committees. The POMPEO letter says quote the invitations the committee sent to the department officials include requests that each of them personally produced a vast amount of documents these requests appear to a duplicate the subpoena that was previously served on the Secretary of state the requested records constitute the property of the Department of State and are subject to restrictions on the unauthorized disclosure of classified information in various executive branch privileges. The pompeo letter went on to say that the committee is asking the witnesses to to quote produce materials that are not theirs to produce the Inspector General of the State Department is Steve Lennox who was appointed to that position in twenty thirteen by I president Barack Obama the inspector general would like to meet with the staff of the House Intelligence Committee the Senate Intelligence Committee the House Foreign Affairs Committee decide Foreign Relations Committee as well as the House Oversight Committee and the House for Raisins Committee the Senate Appropriations Committee. This is an extraordinary question includes democratic staff and Republicans staff. This is a request the likes of which that I for one is a former. Senate staffer have never seen or been party to and fortunately tonight. We are joined by guests to have much more experience than I do. In State Department matters and intelligence committee matters. We'll be joined later in the hour by a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee Senator Kamala Harris who is now a candidate for president secretary. POMPEO's letter blocking the testimony complained that State Department lawyers should be allowed to attend any depositions positions by Congress State Department employees but tonight's letter from the three house chairman to the Deputy Secretary of state says the same rule has been in in place for more than a decade under both Republican and Democratic Chairman of the Committee on oversight and reform and it was in place during Secretary Pompeo's tenure on the Benghazi Z. Select Committee the regulations that Govern House deposition state witnesses may be accompanied by personal non-governmental council to advise them of their rights only members committee staff designated by the chair or ranking minority member and official reporter the witness and the witnesses Mrs Council or permitted to attend observers or council for other persons and Putting Council for government agencies may not attempt the chairman's letter to the deputy secretary of State says the rule is intended for exactly these types of circumstances to prevent the agency head with an obvious conflict of interest in who is directly implicated in the abuses. We are currently investigating from trying to prevent his own employees from coming forward to tell the truth to Congress the three Chairman Adam Schiff the intelligence committee the Foreign Affairs Committee and Elijah Cummings the oversight committee. Tell the deputy secretary of state it is a criminal violation punishable by fine. Mine are up to five years in prison to buy threats or force or by any threatening letter or communication influence obstruct impede or endeavour to do so the due due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either house or any
DTG Pyrotechnics President, Dion Diehl, Talks About His Start in Pyrotechnics
"Us today is dion deal. He's <hes> the president of we called d._t. Pyro and going to talk to us about some things we saw it or venture this year deanne welcome. Thank you hello everyone well. It's really really really glad to have you with your appreciate your making the time to time to come in so let's <hes> before we get to the things we saw ventures or what goes into that. I'm going to start a little a bit with your background when somebody works in pyrotechnics professionally. There's <hes> there's an immediate assumption that we know a lot about you you. You were a terrible kid. You were always lighting. Things on fire takes like that is. Can you dispel that myth a little bit or how does somebody get into that that line of work. I like to think that was a little a little bit more responsible with my irresponsibility. As as a child i won't i won't lie ahead <hes> <hes> some experimentation z- <hes> when i was younger which kind of cultivated the spirit within me i guess where i'm from <hes> i'm from originally from georgia and my dad was a police officer and so <hes> fireworks at the time where illegal <hes> in georgia which made the the desire to get my hands on them as a a young boy <hes> even more exciting <hes> my personality type you know you remember the cap guns when your kid with the role of caps. Oh absolutely i didn't shoot it. Does what the gun i. I begged him with a hammer paper ones right before they went to the plastic brings exactly exactly so. I smell them right now. You know there's there's definitely only some of that. There was a desire when i was a kid to <hes> you know have fun with the all the things that were exciting as i imagine most boys. Are you know loud. Loud noises bright flashes big bang's. You know all of that stuff is exciting and so when the when i was a kid i got my hands hands on bottle rockets and <hes> you know saturn missiles those types of things as everyone else but <hes> is your dad going to be listening to this as he still no he. He's not with us anymore more but <hes> no no worries he was very resistant to providing me with fireworks as they were illegal at the time and my dad was very particular about following the law <hes> and so <hes> you know like everywhere else across the country come fourth of july or new year's eve fireworks are just around sure even in the states that are prohibitive and <hes> i snuck away and and i think my dad <hes> when he was not working he he wasn't concerned about what was going on in the neighborhood and i think he knew what we were doing to some degree. Maybe not to the scale but we had a lot of fun as a child and empire certainly started very young so this is a this is fascinating for me because it's you know it's an area. I'm just wildly. Ignorant is there is they. They were school that you go to is there. Is there a place that you go to train. Is it more of an apprenticeship sort of thing how do you how do you go from. I like these things that go boom to making it a career rear. <hes> somewhat of it's mostly apprenticeship based <hes> community <hes> that's changed quite a bit over the last decade <hes> and progresses this is <hes> to where it's becoming more formalized education certifications. I <hes> formerly was involved with the p._g._a. Which is the pyrotechnics guild international which which is kind of a similar to maybe you're casts. Oh <hes> as a private group that has started up to try to regulate the community and bring safety standards and operational standards across the board and p._g. Has developed course over the last maybe fifteen years i get involved with the local club and became a certified trainer. <hes> through the process well. I i should take a step back. I took the course and became certified in that <hes> <hes> but i also became a trainer and i've certified probably well over four hundred five hundred pirate technicians in the region <hes> as an educator with the program <hes> <hes> and teaching people to do that but how i got introduced to it <hes> was much more organic. It wasn't really something that i targeted <hes> i i ran a normal daytime job <hes> at the time period and <hes> when <hes> pyro was a hobby it was something that started <hes> you know doing the backyard shows for for friends but there was a love for it so we take everything two hundred ten percent me and my my buddies and so <hes> we didn't want to just do regular back backyard shows we wanted to do gran iran displays and and synchronize things and take it to a whole different level than i think just lighting one fees at a time and <hes> it's funny honey so there was a a local or there is a local fireworks store in green bay wisconsin <hes> that we would we would go to <hes> and patronize and learned over the years are pooling of our moneys and stuff for our shows. You know we would buy a substantial amount of fireworks every year. We'd increase it increase it. At least arstan arstan. Gina was five six hundred dollars one year than twelve hundred dollars and the more people you get involved and we'd grow the show he kept building and <hes> i actually have a background background electro mechanical engineering and <hes> so for me again like i was saying earlier not real exciting for me to just light one fees fees at a time i wanna light the same effect in five different positions and i wanted to be perfectly synchronized and so <hes> i built my own electronics to do this and this is you know in my late teens. <hes> you know when we started doing this and <hes> you know that desire just to kind of push the limits in and do cooling creative things <hes> was a big push and that local store actually introduced us to wisconsin club because they saw that there was a passion there that was deeper than just your regular consumer but as a quick aside <hes> i've been wisconsin resident resident for about ten years now and something i noticed noticed very soon after moving here is that we wisconsin i love fireworks we will we will have fireworks shows for any occasion. I think it was. I driven home. When i saw a saint patrick's day fireworks show that was all green <hes> here in oshkosh shortly after i moved in their fireworks stores all over the place. It seemed to be the open year round. It's fascinating part of the culture <hes> it did that have anything to do. You start at in georgia. How did you get to wisconsin. Did you hear there's a lot of fireworks here. That's where i gotta be. No at that time i was looking for a life change. I was young. I was seventeen and and really trying to explore you know my <hes> individualism and pyro wasn't really a part of the thought process at the time <hes> and and that brought me up to wisconsin in in your correct something that's unique to know. Is that in you know about the pyro community here in wisconsin. It's bigger than you think. I think it is. <hes> wisconsin actually has the largest <hes> licensed pyrotechnics per capita than anywhere else in the united states and a lot of that is supported by similar to icaza a great local club here the wisconsin pyrotechnic guard skilled that helps foster <hes> of that and so <hes>. There's definitely eh something unique and special about wisconsin. I don't know if it's the long winters in the exciting. Let's get out and have some fun in the summer and so <hes> people take things to a whole different level. Oh you know when they have to unleash all that built up <hes> excitement <hes> but wisconsin is definitely a very pyro friendly state absolutely yeah. I'm from connecticut connecticut and don't quote me on this. I seem to remember like a big deal. When i was a kid was that sparklers finally became a legal in connecticut that was that was the big stuff that we talk doc so and you were lucky because in georgia when i was a kid they didn't even allow those no snakes snakes. No no they were boring. They were very very boring back. Then i mean no offense to anybody out there who might be in the snake business but those those are the the ridiculous little pellets l._s._u. Let him on fire and just ask squirts out and you do those as a kid because that's the that's one of the things your parents might let you do if they won't let you like the good stuff. If you're deprived arrived at your whole life then it's really excited so yes well like i said i grew up in connecticut. I'm kind of a late comer to wha air venture. I've really only been going since i've been on staff here <hes> for the last seven years but <hes> tells a little bit about the <hes> the history of the fireworks show at venture. I i know that we it's coordinated with the night air. Show the these days does predate that. That's what's your experience <hes>. It was always a the the night air show i believe was introduced or reintroduced in two thousand ten here in oshkosh and it was immediate. <hes> that that we started doing fireworks at that time <hes> i had pursued you know we're from green bay wisconsin so we're only an hour away from oshkosh and <hes> i knew about air adventure. I actually knew about air venture since i was a kid <hes> back in georgia. My dad talked about it quite a bit really and yeah and it's oh my gosh. I should say this. It's so surprising how many people even locally here have not been to era venture <hes> when i was hearing about it back in georgia thousand miles miles away is that it has a worldwide draw but it's is he said it is it is amazing. I think if you have any interest in aviation than you you can say adventure or more more likely you can say oshkosh right to any aviation group anywhere in the world than what you're talking about but but sometimes you do have people right here in the in the backyard who are obviously very aware of it but people don't often think you know like a like a tourist and their own hometown. The sometimes missed the things that happened right there similar to the snakes availability. I think if it's available sometimes you may say i'll get to that or or you know pushed off to an opportune time <hes> <hes> but <hes> you know going back. I i had pursued e._a. For about maybe five years <hes> trying to get my foot in the door to talk about what would i've had a vision for <hes> for bringing fireworks into the night air show and it was it was difficult <hes> at the time and just by a good connection that was a gentleman that i used to work for ya think in the marketing division matt miller and i worked with matt on other programs <hes> you know for that he was doing oshkosh irish fest which hopefully awfully might have been the one you saw.

came to prison for twenty two and held you know I'm fifty so I need to ask you a question why do you keep coming back to prison drugs every time I get out of prison our director selling drugs and using drugs and what's your drug of choice methamphetamine so where are you with your addiction right now hello I want to say it's behind it but it's not every sermon is right in my face how long have you been clean hello honestly couple March so clearly Ronnie was using inside the math really had a hold on and I hate it what I hate crystal I hate to people that comes along with crystal untrustworthy and it's crazy because because of the people I've surrounded myself with all my life but I can't stand them and and I used to always thank Ron I'm not a bad person but in reality I wouldn't want me running around my neighborhood I've got not a prisoner old people in my town out of respect please don't sell none of that to my kids and then tell me oh yeah don't don't worry I won't and then I find out they still are but I was doing the same thing but I never stopped and thought of that until I got out of prison and solve my own son using and him on dialysis so search for killing him as I said I would never sell drugs again and then I got out last time and was living in my daughter's home and not working and feeling about that big because my daughter's support me instead of going out and getting a job I started selling drugs again and thought everything was good but I just compounded things and made him a hundred times worse all Ronnie son and daughter are deceased they both had a rare genetic disorder cystinosis and in the case of his son drugs may have hastened his death my mom lives in Alabama and he has a grandson to its his daughter son and after years of going back and forth the prison his family dynamics are all messed up I don't know where I'm gonna go I mean I may have to go check into a drug program because I because I literally have no

I love the fact hundred and eighty six thousand miles per second, the speed of light one would have to travel at that speed which is impossible by every measurement physics that we have today thousands of years thousands of years to get to somewhere. Interesting, and the fact that we have we understand that. But we can't conceive how some other technology exists. Maybe it's war. Have you seen one of my favorite series of Star Trek the next generation what about warp speed? Well, I think give a gift humans another hundred years we're gonna make. These people. I think we're, you know, we're very inventive creative creatures. And so yeah, I was just. Yeah.

How how are the are Vance's and technology are pretty a sounding. So give us a one hundred years. We'll see what happens. What's the next big thing? Tony bender wants to know. What's the next big thing? Going to happen in space or in the stars. And we look forward to we're here at the end of April. What's the next big thing next? Big things we've got the big planets coming back for the summer, so June and July and August though, we got Jupiter coming back. Coming back. And so those two are the best planets to see we love to have people come visit at the observatory check them out.

Well, say twenty thirty nine was kind of my date. We're we're kind of taking our time with stuff, and I think that's probably good because it's tough adventure. That's for sure. I the one great thing about the Martian. Well, there's lots of great things about the Martian movie been in the books, but that idea of what takes to survive as a lot of that was pretty accurate from what we understand dean Regas. You're a great American. Do you believe or not believe in aliens visiting the earth? I believe aliens are out there yet to make contact with us yet breeding with our women not as far as I know, at least, I certainly hope not it's tough enough out there in the dating world, you know.

A radioactive waste standoff in Malaysia
"Earth minerals are e east for short are essential in a vast array of technologies from your smartphone all the way to electric vehicles, but the processing to extract these minerals results in radioactive waste. I'm Meghan Cantwell. And I'm here with science order. Yahoo. Allow to talk about how this radioactive waste has created a standoff in Malaysia the state of the only sizable R E processing plant besides China. Having me, of course. So what elements are considered R E E is Zora of elements. Are are ES. You mentioned is about fifteen elements in what we called the letter night series. Oh, e element of ETA MC number fifty seven to seventy one. And they're actually not that rare. They are over eight hundred commercially viable deposits were white. So these oars are coming from Australia. Why are they processed in Malaysia the reasons given by Linas is that it? It's for economic purposes there say that it is she and then the site where the chose Kuantan is the industrial park. You get chemical plants to get tro Cam on the things that line assay the need for the processor, the heavy in Kuantan, another reason that the gave is that relationship on the major economic trade routes closer China closer to Japan, which is a major of Linus Proser to Europe environmental groups in Malaysia have opposed Linus cintas started. Why is that the main concern at the time was the radioactive waste that Linus produces in the processing once you take the rare of ascites, you're left with are the solid strike at it has Tori and uranium. So it is real active Molly radioactive, and so can imagine locals immolations having this imagery of light one point. Five million tons of major sitting big number value, but not one point five million tonnes reader at. So the radioactive ways up to the end of two thousand eighteen is more than four hundred fifty thousand tonnes how is it currently stored? Well, it starred in what line is caused a residue storage facility. Basically, it is powered up there just above ground. So they do cover a black lining. The lining is way not as effective at blocking the radiation. As compared to if they just seal it away in a permanent disposal facility like underground sealed off that recommended way one of their commended ways to do this radioactive residue. This temporary storage is exposed to natural elements and the area is prone to floods about every four to five months of the year, the north eastern coast of peninsula Malaysia. But one is is better. By monsoon storms. And when it's very dry the area is a some forest, and so it's also susceptible to fires. The government changing over. They've tightened the regulations online. Is there a chance if they don't comply with this that the plant will be shut down as the situation sense? No, if they do not ship reductive ways of Malaysia, it will not get operating license, renewed, and Linus will have to shutdown and they've said, this probably isn't feasible. So it's kind of at a stalemate. Yeah. Foam one angry looks like a steam, it doesn't it? But they are definitely actions behind the scenes just a few weeks ago. The ministry has said that they have established a pass fos to facilitate the removal of radioactive waste from Malaysia to Australia and response to that command from the ministry Linus that they knew nothing about it. The knew nothing about this. Action or this task fast. So where are they now they're kind of saying to the sink, but they really think behind the scenes, we don't know. But there are other countries involved in this whole scenario in this whole dynamics, one of those countries is Japan because Japan, they have a very strong electric vehicle industry and electric vehicles require permanent, magnets, and Pullman, magnets require rent of oxides, and the majority of the rare of oxides for the permanent nets come from Linus. So Japan has provided I think two hundred fifty million two hundred million loan to Linus a few years ago, Pol the deals as that Linus has to provide a certain amount of bread of oxides to Japan. So without crushing Linus supply is crucial for Japan. And so in disaster. Amber. If I remember was in December, the Japanese embassy here in Malaysia has been come out to say that they would take action to intervene. If necessary in this dynamics that's going on between liners Emily's array strong words, isn't it? If Linus were to have to shutdown how would this impact other countries, so Linus processes and producers like ten percent of the worst Ray of oxides now, but for the countries involved, for example, Japan they would have to turn to another sauce in the case, moose likely China? So if you don't have liners Tenet becomes in all sense, the only other supply of of oxides so flying this goes down the rest of the has no choice as of now, but to buy from China interesting, why can't they build a permanent facility nearby in Malaysia as Malaysia not want a permanent silicon store? This underground this like the central question. I don't know why Linus is not building permanent disposal facility. In fact, they were supposed to have located the place to build the permanent disposal facility that longtime ago like within ten months of their operations, but have not done it. And as to whether Malaysia one set. Yes, up to bay two thousand eighteen before we had a change in government who has always been very clearly, in fact in the contracts and in the conditions for Linus to operate here that you try to recycle if you cannot then Bill a permanent disposal facility, and you have to start looking for it. Now, the previous government did one disposal facility if recycling did not work. But now the new government and the new ministry is requesting that Linus remove all of its radioactive ways of his one hundred and fifty thousand. Tons of radioactive as note redo not wind Bowman disposal facility, just remove all the radioactive waste.

No, I had no plan other than I needed to find a job in Germany, and I wasn't going to get one of those DOD contracting jobs, I stumbled into another West Point grad who is over there. And he happened to be a financial adviser, and there's a few firms that would allow you to operate over in Europe. If you were only serving the military in the DOD cardholders. So that's how I stumbled into what I thought was entrepeneurship is really just employment slash self-employment. Make your own hours and decide how much money you're gonna make. But yeah, just became a standard financial adviser. And did that for failed at it for a number of years, but eventually found a mentor and was just able to operate over in Europe like that.

Do it unable to do and help the team offensively and finding ways defensively the to control my man and stay in front of them. And all and I was able to do that. And then I think the last couple of years, I think and and I've noticed it more offense than defensively with. The first few days. I would get a ton of watt Ivan shots, I would get pick and roll that would go under every time, and it was like kind of difficult because when when teens keep going under it's hotter than you think.
