"Few years later. Yep, the man who created captain horatio Magellan crunch also created the Mary Tyler Moore show. That little kitten meow at the end of the Mary Tyler Moore episodes reminds me of a big legal cat fight. Back in 1952, Kellogg was developing a new, pre sweetened breakfast cereal called frosted flakes. Taking a cue from Disney, competitor sugar crisp had enjoyed success with its animated sugar bear commercials. So Kellogg told their advertising agency that they wanted animals to. According to the book, serializing America, the ad agency knew they had to overcome the parental bias to a sugar coated kid cereal. So they studied motivational research and discovered that juvenile facial traits such as big eyes, broad foreheads and small chins made parents, sigh. And potentially could make them buy. So the ad agency sketched up some potential animal mascots, including Katie the kangaroo, and Tony the Tiger. Frosted flakes boxes with those images were produced and put in grocery stores. The kangaroo boxes went unsold, but Tony the Tiger, with big eyes and a broad forehead, flew off the shelves. Next, the ad agency hired an ex Disney artist who had been the principal animator on dumbo to bring Tony the Tiger to television. Tony also needed a voice. The ad agency had their eye on a man named thorough ravenscroft. He was part of a singing group called the mellow man. Keep I died just let me lie. At the bottom of the sea. And sleep. That would be thorough. The ad agency created a fun tagline for Tony the Tiger and thoros baritone nailed it. They're great from that point on Tony the Tiger became a TV staple for decades. Appearing in both animated commercials and ads that mixed live action with animation. First, put a Tiger on your team with Kellogg's sugar frosted flakes. These big crisp flakes of corn with a toasted in sugar frosting have good food energy. Meanwhile, across the street at.

"Hello and welcome to card talk on national public radio with us click and collect the tappet brothers and with broadcasting this week from the fall foliage observation deck here at car talk Plaza. Speaking of the foliage deckers on the first floor this year. This is all the leaves I've already fallen, you know, it's a little late. I'm glad you brought up the subject of leaves. Yes. Because did you want me to leave? No, I wanted to ask you a question. Here's the question. Our plants really that stupid. I mean, everything most grateful philosophies are based on some illusion allusion to nature and the magnificence of nature. And I heard someone say the other day that because this has been a particularly warm autumn. Flowers are beginning to bloom when they were supposed to not bloom. They think it's spring again. And my question is, a plant that stupid? I thought plants were the ultimate in intelligence. Now, one with nature. They are nature. You mean nature isn't perfect and you can fool it by just throwing in a couple extra degrees and while it's come out? Sure, of course. Oh, okay, just fold you, huh? Actually, you want to read something funny? Not but I'd like to hear something. Here's an article sent to us by Bill Kent from Pennsylvania. He says, as NASA's Magellan probe, this is a, it looks like The Wall Street Journal. As NASA's Magellan probe approaches its 2500th orbit around Venus, it's spreading the interplanetary fame of female earthlings because the international astronomical union, the scientific group, which is charged with designated newly found heavenly places, has chosen to recognize distinguished women by giving their names to craters and other features now visible as Magellan's radar imaging device penetrates Venus's dense clouds. Interesting, huh? To help out a public nomination process for crater naming is being coordinated by the U.S. geological survey. And some names that get raised some women who have been nominated include the Dutch diarist and Frank. The American anthropologist Margaret Mead, and none other than Norwegian skater. Sonya. And Bill writes at the bottom. He says, dear brothers, I can see it all. Picture if you will, to concentric craters on Venus. The inner crater is named Sonja hennie and the other one is what? Her 2000. Three three two 9 two 8 7 hello, you're on cartoon. Hello, who says hello, this is Bill from Florida. Bill. Hi, Bill. What's up? Well, I've been having some problems with my 1987 Honda prelude. I take it out on a trip and about an hour into the trip, the air conditioner starts putting out mostly fog and a few minutes after that, it's not working anymore. Oh yeah. Not working. Meaning working at all, you know, it's just like not putting out any cold air at all and after you stop in the car shut down for, I don't know, 30 minutes to maybe an hour. And you started up again, it works again for a while. No kidding. Yeah. Okay, you say it's purple problems. Puts out fog, but the fog it puts out has no smell or taste or what are they called? He licks the dashboard. It's blowing in your face, right? Right. It had a somewhat of a taste of salty air, but I was driving along the beach at the time. And that's exactly what it was. Water vapor. Yeah. I mean, I don't think that has anything to do with the air conditioner itself. I mean, it may be that it was preceded the things not working. But the reason you got fog is that the air in the car was just so moisture laden that it was condensing when the cold air hit it. And that's what the fog is. You were making clouds in your car. We were like 30,000 feet. I could still see, you know, but barely. That's bad, huh? No, I mean, so I don't think that necessarily means that there was something wrong with the air conditioner or it means in fact that the air conditioner was working. And what was wrong was that you were in a very, very humid area. Right. But it did stop working after that. Maybe they're not related. Maybe they're not related. Okay, so when it stopped working, did air keep coming out of the vents, but it wasn't cold? Right, the fans still ran and there was air coming out the vents, but it was not cold. I did have it checked at a service station, and he said the ten to there said, they put it on a tester that they thought the high pressure switch was cutting out or something. I'm not that familiar with it, but that's something about the high pressure switch, but he recommended not bypassing that because it could cause other problems. Well, the precious which really means reads the amount of free on pressure that's in the system, and if it's not enough, it won't allow the compressor to kick in. Right. And they do that so that if you develop a system leak, you won't run the compressor dry and crook it. Right. Well, he was able to bypass that switch and get the compressor to run properly. And the cold air come out. No. Yes. Yes. Yes. And that's good. With a switch not bypassed. The compressor didn't run at that time at the time he checked it. And there was no cold air. Good for him. That sent me that's good because now you've narrowed it down, you know that the compressor does work because the other thing that it might have been was the compressor itself. It was in fact the other came out really cold or was it just colder than the haughty that had been coming out. It was a sufficiently cold. Do you feel it was working the way it had been?.

It is deeply complex and I'm still kind of like untangling it. I only watch it one time. I want to watch it again and see if it had the same power on me. I also I saw this movie in a movie theater. And I was like, this is another move. Yet another Netflix movie where I'm like, gosh, I wish people could see this movie in a movie theater because it has such a different effect on you. I watched it at home and it worked and it captured my attention. Now granted, this is set in a beautiful Greek seaside village with I late breaking entered for apartment of the year or just like home of the year in movies. This apartment that she rents even though the lighthouse is kind of shining through it all the time. Lot of rotting fruit in there too, you know, that's the one heavy handedness. The symbolism in this movie is like extremely funny and I'm sure it's from, you know, frantic, but lita being Maggie Gyllenhaal's leader being Olivia Colman's character's name, Nina, which I assume is a reference to the check off play to the seagull. Yes. Well, leda and the swan is literally recited in the film in Italian. I mean, sure. Callie is calliope, which is another, you know. Okay, like we got it. There's the rotting fruit. There's the doll, whatever. But a beautiful to look at movie, but also we mentioned the doll or I mentioned at all. It's intense, there is a propulsive, oh my God, what's gonna happen is someone gonna find this doll. I was very stressed out about everyone walking into the room with a doll and being like Olivia, I need you to hide the doll, or just do something with the doll. So and I really credit Magellan calls that there is we made it sound like an intense psychological, quiet drama, which is it is in a lot of ways and there's not like a huge amount of dialog, but it is also has narrative movement. And you want to know what's going on. It has like that very specific like the hand that rocks the cradle or Pacific heights. That kind of like early 90s thriller energy to it. Not in full, but it has remnants of that that I think makes the movie extremely enjoyable to watch in a very unnerving kind of a way. It's a very good movie. It sure seems like Olivia Colman is gonna be nominated for best actress. I don't know if she could. Let's talk about best actress quickly, okay? Okay..

"The day was september twentieth fifteen nineteen portuguese explorer ferdinand magellan set sail with a crew of two hundred and seventy sailors on what would ultimately become the first successful voyage around the world. However there are some important caveats to this story to keep in mind for one thing. The main concern of magellan and his crew wasn't to make history by circumnavigating the globe. The real goal of their expedition was to find a westward route to the maluku islands of modern indonesia where they plan to pillage a fortunes worth of exotic spices. The other thing worth clarifying is that only some of the crew managed to sail around the entire globe. The vast majority including magellan himself did not survive the return trip but before we get to the end of the journey. Let's talk a little about how it began. Magellan was born to a noble portuguese family in fourteen eighty in his youth he served in the royal court as a page to queen consort. Eleanor and king. Manuel the first at the time. European aristocrats were with the taste of foreign spices like nutmeg cloves and mace. These new lucrative imports sparked a heated competition between portugal and spain to see who could discover and claim the best trade routes to the so-called spice islands in fifteen o five when he was twenty. Five years old. Magellan joined a portuguese military fleet that was bound for india over. The next decade. Magellan would travel to malaysia indonesia and morocco as well and along the way he learned the basics of navigation and fought in several naval battles with spain for control of routes along the indian ocean in fifteen thirteen while fighting morrish forces in morocco. Magellan sustained a leg wound. That would leave him with a limp for the rest of his life although he had made a name for himself in battle magellan was soon accused of illegal trading with the very people he was fighting against. The accusations were largely unfounded but they were enough to ruin his reputation in portugal and sour. His relationship with king manuel. The i finally in fifteen seventeen after being dismissed from service to his home country. Magellan join the competition and pledged his allegiance to spain. By that time. Portugal had gotten the upper hand in the spice war. It controlled access to the primary. Trade routes that led east from europe to indonesia by going around africa's cape of good hope. Spain was quickly being boxed out of the spice trade. But magellan thought he had a solution he went to the king of spain. Charles the fifth and suggested sailing in the opposite direction. West rather than east magellan believed the going west would lead them to a straight. That was rumored to run through south. America king charles was thrilled at the prospect of sticking it to the portuguese and agreed to finance a five ship voyage in search of a westward route to the spice islands. Most people thought the voyage was doomed from the start largely on account of all those sea monsters. That were sure to be lurking in the uncharted waters. But one member of magellan's crew bolstered confidence in the mission eight years earlier while helping to invade the malaysian port. City of malacca. Magellan took possession of an enslaved man named enrica. He was fluent in the malay- language which made him in ideal. Interpreter and king. Charles felt much better about funding the voyage knowing that enrica would be going along to translate as for the rest of the crew. They inspired less confidence. Most spanish sailors had refused to join. An expedition led by man. So instead magellan was forced to settle for less experienced crewman many of them were criminals loaned from prisons and others joined mainly as a way to avoid their debt collectors. As you might expect the unsavory crew caused some problems for magellan in march of fifteen twenty six months after the voyage began three of his captains incited a mutiny and tried to kill him instead. Magellan killed them and to send a message to the rest of the crew. He had the bodies drawn quartered and impaled on spikes on the shore of argentina after that cheery interlude the five ships continued their voyage across the pacific ocean dealing with scurvy and starvation. Along the way and stopping off briefly in guam to massacre indigenous people one month later the crew reached the philippines where they were shocked to learn that enrica could understand in speak the local language. Historians suggest that enrica may have been raised there in the central philippines before being sold into slavery in sumatra and eventually taken some alaka where he was bought by magellan. This raises a very interesting possibility. But we'll get back to that in just a minute. Within rica acting as interpreter magellan decided to claim the philippines on behalf of spain. He demanded the native people to convert to christianity and wound up starting an unnecessary war between those who were willing to do. So and those who weren't on april twenty-seventh fifteen twenty one. This rash act of colonization backfired. When magellan was killed by poison-arrow while attacking chieftain who opposed his rule. He never made it to the spice islands and it was his own fault. After magellan's death his crew continued on and eventually made it to the maluku islands in november of fifteen twenty one in september of the next year. The expedition finally returned to spain with three hundred and eighty-one sacks of to show for their trouble in total. They had traveled more than sixty thousand miles round trip. Losing four out of five ships and eighty percent of the crew and the process still the survivors had proven that it was possible to circumnavigate the globe. And the new routes they had charted would soon pave the way for european colonization of the new world for better or worse. Okay so who was the first person to sail around the entire world. They're actually a few options. The most obvious would be the surviving crew members who actually completed the voyage and made it back to spain. In fact the captain of the one remaining ship a man named juan sebastian. Del volcano was given credit for the first circumnavigation by the spanish crown. The other possibility involves the expedition's interpreter in rica if historians are correct and he was raised in the central philippines before his enslavement. That would make him the first person to circumnavigate the globe beating the rest of the crew by well over a year. Either way the one thing we know for sure is definitely wasn't magellan i'm gave leuze and hopefully you now know a little more about history today than you did yesterday. Also we've made a slight adjustment to our social media handles in order to get them up and running again so from now on you can follow us on twitter facebook and instagram at tdi h c show. And if you have any enrica fan fiction you'd like to share you can send it my way at this day at iheartmedia dot com thanks to chandler maze for producing the show and thank you for listening.

"Things they can do to fix it afterwards. That's great question. it's definitely not a one step process. This sort of make the rough shape using this spin casting. And then they spend years polishing these things so the first part of the process is like melt and spin and then slowly cooling down like nine hundred degrees c and then further very very slowly as you're spinning is keep the shape to like twelve weeks just to cast the basic shape. This thing is spinning the whole time. Then they vary gradually cooling for six more months and then they have years of polishing ahead of them because they need to get this thing down to like incredibly smooth you know. They want the deviations from their desired shape to be less than the wavelength of the light that they are looking at and that takes years and so they've been working on this since two thousand and five when they finished the first mirror and they've done to mir's far and they got four more like in various stages and so basically the longest part of this project is just making these mirrors which is like a decades long project. I can't imagine how stressful it must be when they collect images being the person who had worked on the hubble land and then the first image comes back blurry and being late. I imagine you feel pretty confident. When you're finished with these mirrors but you probably don't sleep well at night until the first images come in perfect but anyway. This is an incredible procedure. I think than those nerve wracking part must be when you ship it. You like all right. I spent the last five years of my life making these things incredibly smooth now basically mailing it down to chile so they can cart it up to the top of a mountain like please. Don't drop my project. They fly or do they drive it. S got to be really hard. Yea think they put this thing on a ship and they've basically floated down to chile. There's lots of stages in transporting these things that this group has been doing this for a while. So the last thing they built was the large binocular telescope and had two of these things. So that's why they call it the binocular telescope so the giant magellan telescope is basically just like seventies things arranged in almost circle to be effectively like a much bigger lens. The you know. I talked to astronomers about this and some people are like wow. That's cool and sexy from like an engineering point of view others like We're not sure it's really like the best way to build a telescope. You'll notice the other two competing groups didn't make this choice. They're using like eight hundred one meter segments. Which are much easier to make into ship and to fix if something breaks. And so this giant magellan telescope sort of an outlier in its approach. Is there a benefit to having this. These giant is one or you know this small number of huge mirrors relative to all the little small ones like you know you had mentioned. Adjusting for the adaptive optics. Can you do nicer adjustments when you have lots of small mirrors at relative to these. Big ones the adaptive optics on these things. Don't happen at these i mirror. The light comes in bounces off this mirror and then down to second surface which which is where they do. The adaptive optics. So you know. The the astronomers i talked to said there aren't really a lot of benefits. And they speculated that probably this group is doing this way because they already so deeply. Invested in engineering costs of making these huge mirrors. And also. I think probably once you know how to build something you wanna make more of them. So they're sort of like you know deep down this road of making huge mirrors and decided to stick with it. I think those folks would argue that. It's easier to align because you have fewer mirrors like seven. Big meals are easier to organize into a large effective surface than like eight hundred smaller ones. That all need like their own orientation in my view. It seems a little crazy. Awesome to look at and it's amazing feat of like cooking but it makes more sense to me to have more smaller segments than fewer large ones interesting and i feel like it's also a deeply unsatisfying. Answer that likes the nausea is. What's keeping this group. But mostly they get cool data. Anyway you know you build a huge hammer then you wanna hit all the nails with it and as long as you can. So that's the way these things work you know. We don't always use the best technology use technology where we have the people who know how to make it. The same thing happens in particle physics. We have competitions between like superconducting berry. Cold magnets and like less cold magnets. And you know it's not always clear we're making the choice that's going to be the best for the facility or the choice were like we know that there are people there who can pull this off all right fair enough. It's hard to get the knowledge to do some of these things. Okay so you. You've got these giant mirrors. How is the like resolving power going to compare it to something like hubbell. This thing is going to be so much better than like things that look fuzzy to hubbell are going to be crisp and clear to us soul far the universe but this thing will have ten times. The resolving power of hubble practically speaking like if this thing was in washington. Dc could resolve a softball in the hands of a pitcher in san francisco. Like this thing can see so far away. That's incredible like nothing will be. So what will we still be using hubble or i guess you want to get as much data as you can out of everything that you have but is it worth still using hubble when this other things going to be so awesome. It's definitely worth using hubble because remember that we can only point these things in one direction at a time even if you have this incredible device. It's like you're looking through a pinhole you know. Imagine somebody shows you a wall with all the secrets of the universe on it but they say you can only look at one tiny little part of it at a time. You'd like scan across it looking at it through a straw. That's basically what we're doing with these telescopes. And so yeah. You definitely want to straws if you can't even if one of them isn't as good as the other one and so long as hubble is effective instill still worth the money to operate we definitely wanna keep it around. But that's why we build these better ones. You know all of these devices. Each of them will have ten times the power of hubble and so it would really teach us things about the universal. Show us things about the early universe. We've never seen before awesome. Yeah we need more straws. When does this straw come online. So this one they are planning to get first light in twenty twenty nine. It's a couple of years behind the thirty meter telescope which currently people say we'll turn online in twenty twenty seven and the extremely large telescope. But you know these projects are very hard to predict this bar and the future. The thirty meter telescope of course is delayed because the construction issues at its site and they might even have to move it to the grand canary islands. And so it's not clear but none of these things are going to give us images earliest eight to ten years. All right so we gotta wait for more straws. Unfortunately all right well. Life apparently involves a lot of waiting. So let's take a brief wait until we get back to the science every minute of every day.

"When we did that. Space solar power episode like. It's expensive to build anything. That's going to go into space. It's really hard. The radiation up there is crazy things break. It's like almost impossible to fix them. Especially now that we don't have a space shuttle program and also you got to squeeze your whole instrument into the size of a rocket you can't build an arbitrarily large telescope. it's gotta fit into your little launch device which could also blow up on the pad so there's a lot of reasons why you might want to develop a complimentary program on the ground. Would you feel the same way. If elon musk wake get starship going. And that becomes like that has a bigger space inside. And if he's drives the costs down as much as he's hoping to like. would you still want ground telescopes. If you could make the same size thing in space for like you know not that much more money than the great question i think. That's just impractical. Though because the ground base community has made really big strides so that they can basically compensate for all the advantages that the space telescopes have like first of all on the ground. You can be as big as you like. You can fix it. You can upgrade. You could do all sorts of things you can swap out instruments laws of big advantages all the pros at the space telescope. Tab like there's no atmosphere between you the ground. Telescopes folks have figured that out like they have these crazy. Devices called adaptive optics that can compensate for the wiggles of the atmosphere. It measures like in real time. How the atmosphere's wiggling how. The air is distorting the light and in bends the mirrors in the telescope to compensate for that to like undo the fuzziness. It's really incredible. That's absolutely amazing. It really is in real time. They're bending the mirrors that what you said or are they just like using bent bending the data there actually bending the mirrors a little bit there actually bending the mirrors like in some cases the mirrors and other case. It's a lens depends on the kind of telescope you have but they make these like instantaneous adjustments sometimes they'll for example like shoot a laser beam through the atmosphere in order to measure the distortions. As why sometimes you see these lasers being shot out of telescopes and they use the image of the laser to tell them because they know what the laser should look like to tell them how to compensate for it and then in real time they have these like little servers that are like bending the mirrors of the light when it bounces off goes in the right direction so these adaptive optics can make the ground-based pictures essentially as crisp as the space-based pictures. This is incredible. Like i feel like we should know the name of famous sports people. We should know the names of the people who are figuring out adaptive optics. It blows blows my mind that we can have that all figured out and like in real time be responding to stuff like this. So anyway okay. That's incredible so now. He's maybe convinced me that there's no reason to put them in space where they're hard to do. They get different kinds of data. They do different kinds of data and some kinds of telescopes like an infrared telescope. That has to be really really cold. Like the upcoming james webs based telescope that thing needs to be like cryogenically cooled. And that's definitely easier to do in space and so that's good example of something that should be in space. But i think these are really complimentary. Programs is stuff that you can do in space and stuff you can do better on the ground and we should build all of these things right. Let's just pour more money into building more of these things. It's not a competition. It's like a happy family of observatories for big projects that involve going to space. I've heard that common problem is that when a project from one administration to another if each one of those administrations aren't excited about the project. It might get dumped or changed so some of these telescopes are running over decades. Do they usually get like bipartisan. Supports and make it through the whole process or do telescopes often get dumped along the way when like a president from a different party comes online is a real challenge. It's the same kind of thing that we face when we try to build like huge particle physics facilities and a lot of these also involved. Many many countries like these are consortium of dozens of countries. Sometimes so you have like internal politics in lots of different countries that also buffers you a little bit. Because hungary pulls out or the french parliament decides they're not gonna maybe another country can step forward but for example. The thirty meter telescope is supported by keck in you know the university of california but also they do rely on government funding which does rely on the whims of whoever is in charge. So that is a difficulty you know like. That's why china for example can pull off really ambitious projects because you know the same guys in charge for decades. He makes decisions himself and so he can be consistent at least about policy. And if you don't care about human rights then it's all. I'm not advocating for authoritarianism. I'm just saying there are some advantages. Yes yes spirit house fair enough. So we've been talking about the giant magellan telescope sort of in the abstract. But i i looked up like drawings at the plan for it and it blew my mind. So can you give us more like specifics about where it's going and what it's gonna look like. Yes so this telescope is amazing. If you look at a picture of it you'll see that it's made of seven different segments. Each segment is like a huge mirror and each one is eight point. Four meters across that mind blowing large or this thing is like thirty feet across almost and it's made of seven of these things arranged into effectively like a twenty twenty two twenty three meter telescope and like twenty three meters. That's like you know almost a quarter of a football field. This things going to be joined norma's more about those mirrors like how they're made and how the heck do you get them from wherever they're made to where they need to be. These are basically the biggest mirrors that humans can make and the giant magellan telescope is fascinating because it quite different from its competitors like the thirty meter telescope and the extremely large telescope have made very different design choices. They're could be made of like hundreds or thousands of smaller segments all together but the giant john telescopes said let's make the biggest pieces we can have as few of them as possible and so that means they have like a really huge task for them which is to make like you know. Eight point four meter mirrors that are perfectly smooth and the process is totally ridiculous. Do you know about the the a basically. There's only one place in the world that can make these things it's at the university of arizona. Of course which has a long story astronomy program. And you make them in this rotating furnace and each one takes like years to make you start with like these chunks of glass and they fill out this mold. You can look online to see these pictures. It looks just like you know you're doing a craft project. We like melting plastic into some mold or something they start with this mold and they put these big chunks of glass in it and it heats up and it melts the glass and then it spins at the same time and the reason they spin it is because you want this sort of like parabolic shape right. You don't wanna flat mirror which one is a parabolic mirror so it's like focusing the light down on a single point where you can gather it. So how'd you get a parabolic mirror where you can make a flat one using gravity and then like scoop it out. But that's a huge amount of work so instead what they do is they spin it at six. Rpm while it's being heated up to like twelve hundred degrees c so that it melts into the right shape automatically getting my first thought is that it probably needs to be totally uniform but maybe even as the case that like some areas where it's going to be thicker needs to heat a bit more if there's more glass there are like just the fact that they've managed to make all of that work with no errors is incredible or are there errors like when we sent the hubble lens up there. There was an error that needed to be fixed which was a pretty big inconvenience. Do you know with these mirrors. Do they ever have to like trash. One of these huge mirrors because it wasn't perfect order.

"magellan" Discussed on Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe
"So i'm guessing it something to do with the cosmic but ground radiation. I've heard that the giant magellan telescope will have a resolving power ten times that of the hobble space telescope. So hopefully it will allow us to see deep into the visible universe. I haven't heard of the giant magellan. Telescope magellan sailed all the way around the world So maybe the magellan telescope is trying to calculate where observe vast distances its giant if it's optical that means a really big mirror or lens china's see objects further than we've ever seen. I guess it could be giant radio dish to no idea. The giant magellan telescope. So because it is a telescope and it is also giant. I would say that it would show us something from dow space. Maybe something that we have not been able to reach with other telescopes. Apparently not up to date on my science news. Because i've never heard of the giant magellan telescope before. I'm so sorry. I know the james webb telescope. Because you talked about it. And i know that this isn't that So that's going to tell us so one of the things. I loved about the responses here. Was that it seemed like everybody was just about as clueless as i was. So it made me feel like you know probably been watching enough news or whatever and i'm not missing anything that's popularly known already and that's why i thought we should talk about this particular telescope rather than the more famous ones sort of bring bebo up to speed to what's going on also. This one has a particular design choice. Which i think is sort of amazing and crazy that i wanted to get to talk about but the thing i like about the listener responses is that there's an enthusiasm there's like well. I'm not sure what it is. But i bet it's going to teach us some cool stuff about deep space and you know that's the kind of enthusiasm i think that funny agencies should here. They're like people want us to build these devices so we can learn secrets of the universe and they look so cool like when it looked up the pictures of this i was just sort of blown away and so i think like bugler both excited about the information that it gives us and also it's just amazing. See one of these incredible engineering feats completed. I sort of gives you a bit of feeling of pride as a human being that we can do stuff like this. I know right. I feel that way when i see something like golden gate bridge. I'm like wow go. Humans like you guys have done something. And i feel the same way about these giant observatories like. That didn't look easy. I couldn't have done that afternoon. So it's cool to see them accomplish this so into it. So the giant magellan telescope. What is this thing. Well actually is a member of this new class of super telescopes. There's a few of these things. There's the thirty meter telescope. The extremely large telescope and the giant magellan telescope. They're all roughly the same size and they're all coming online sometime in the next five or ten years and each one is like this huge project that the successor of a previous project when these three communities of astronomers in the world developing these things and each one is like going on to the next stage and the names kind of crack me up. I can't tell if people are trying to be funny by naming them things like the extremely large telescope or if they are just really not clever like part of me thinks maybe some of the funds could have gone to hire someone with more creativity you know or like a historian who could pick a cool historic name but but on the other hand the name. The extremely large telescope is very informative and it makes me laugh about the history of the naming. Stuff here will i think. They sort of painted themselves in a corner because this group worked recently on the telescope called the very large telescope. And so what are you gonna do after the very large telescope ride the very very large telescope. I feel like they had to go extremely large telescope. But where do you go up from there. The super extremely large will they actually had even bigger plans and so the extremely large telescope is about thirty meters across about the same size. The giant magellan and the thirty meter telescope. But originally they wanted to do a hundred meter telescope and this thing was going to be called the overwhelmingly large telescope. Okay said about that. Not being built for so many reasons like what we would've learned and what we have seen with it but also just to have the existence of a facility on the overwhelmingly large telescope would have been pretty awesome. You can't get to the net afterwards. Because that's his source is gonna run out of words for them to use but yeah it would be awesome to have an overwhelmingly large telescope exactly and unfortunately that seems like it was too expensive. They overshot their mark. There's too large. It was cancelled so they had to downgrade down just to the extremely large telescope. Did they start this project. And then it got cancelled or did it never get funded. It didn't get funded but you know these things take years and years to get approval and so they sort of like began really large and the cost was going to be like twenty billion and then pretty soon. It was clear that was just never going to happen. So they scoped until the down to the extremely large telescope. But you know. I assume that they're gonna build something after the yield tease. Something in twenty or thirty years and probably. They're already thinking about what they're going to call it. I don't actually feel like they should need a decade or more to come up with a name this straightforward but anyway. They've got plenty of time to figure it out so that's good all right so all. These telescopes are part of this class of super telescopes that are coming online later this decade. And you might be wondering like as we were joking around the cold open. Why are people building bigger. Telescopes like we have the hubble. We have you know the cac. We have a lot of great facilities around the world. The very large telescope the large binocular telescope. Why do we need bigger telescopes. Are these telescopes like breaking down. The beginning old one of them broke down recently. Didn't it like there. Was the mirror started falling in that a. I think this was in. This was all over twitter somewhat recently. Maybe you think about air. Cbo arazi bowed definitely collapsed. A little bit more than a year ago of the radio telescope did one of these optical ones also collapsed. I hadn't heard data. No no i do not know the difference between any of these telescopes and so yes the cbo. That's outright so it seems like some of these are wearing down but if that's a totally different class is that right we have whole fund podcast episode about air cbo. That's unfortunate quite an old facility really storied. History made a lot of fantastic discoveries. You're interested in radio. Astronomy go check out episode about the cbo facility. Great stuff there but here. We're talking about telescopes in the optical so these mostly visible light in the near infrared the kinds of stuff is the if your eyes were bigger. And that really tells you why you need telescopes you need telescopes at all because your eyes are not always big enough to gather enough. Photons like imagine you look at the night sky at night and you look in a direction where it seems dark. Wise dark right in that direction. There are definitely galaxies. they're definitely stars. Why are you not seeing them and the answer is just that they are really far away. And so there. Photons are very infrequent like they pump out a lot of photons where they are. But the further away you are the fewer those photons land here on earth and land on your eyeball. Is this why owls have relatively. Big is so that they can see at night. Yes exactly. that's why owls have very large is and i think that's what they were going for. Actually with the overwhelmingly large telescope it was the o. Wwl l. t. The owl those go way. Why is it. Oh w isn't overwhelmingly one word acronym abuse overwhelmingly large telescope. It just hit me that that stalls owl couple seconds behind. I've got a little bit of a lag anyway. Okay excellent.

And i'm kelly weiner smith i'm a parapsychologist with rice university and i love really really really big parasites but for today. I'll talk about telescopes instead. Hold on a second now. I have to new. Have you ever had a really big parasite or is it. Too personal question. I love really really big parasites under by mike risco not in any humans so no. I have never personally had a really big parasite but you know they're easier to see when they're that's good to know and welcome to the podcast. Daniela or hey explore the universe and kelly's parasites in which we talk about all the amazing and crazy things that we can learn about the universe using giant enormous scientific facilities. The biggest the brightest the most incredible the most jaw dropping constructions that mankind has ever made and use them to ask the deepest questions about the nature of the universe where it all came from where it's all going to go how it all works and what it all means to you our friend and my host hor. Hey can be here today. So of course. I'm joined by our wonderful and hilarious. Guest host kelly weiner smith and kelly's here to join us when we talk about how we explore the universe. We often on this podcast talk about. How so much. Information is out there in the universe soul much of it being beamed towards earth carried who was on waves of light but most of it just hits the ground thing about all the times. You didn't look at the night sky thing about all the times. Astronomers pointed their telescope in one direction and not another secrets of the universe. Stories of what has happened in the ancient and distant past have just gone sort of ignored as they hit a rock or bounce off a tree and are just lost forever to humanity. That kind of thing drives me crazy. And so i'm always enthusiastic when we are building more eyeballs to look out onto the universe to capture those pieces of information that might reveal the secrets about the nature of the universe. It is always a shame when data goes uncollected. Do you think about that in biology. How many species are out there doing weird things and nobody's watching every time a bird flies by. I think about the parasites. It has that. I won't be looking at. You should bill huge parasite telescope to look her whole birds are or just a big net to catch them all but it does strike me. How much of science is just getting the data like all of these things are happening out there in the universe and so many scientists stories are mostly just about getting to see it like if you could see these things happening boom. You would understand so much about what's going on in the universe like if you could watch the big bang happen or if you could be there when black hole is formed or if you would see these two species. Doing they're crazy meeting dance so much of science just like being in the right place at the right time with the right instrument yes and finding the way to get the money to get those instruments exactly convincing somebody to spend their cash so you could bill that instrument so you could answer that science question but it makes me wonder sometimes what we could learn about the universe if we would just like magically omniscient just like could zoom anywhere in the universe and gather any data. We wanted about any experiment. What would you do. I how would you what would you do i if you know anything about the universe at any moment. Oh my gosh i don't know you've blindside. May that's huge. I feel so much biodiversity that we don't understand. But i think you know probably would have to prioritize something about understanding cancer or something like that even though selfishly rather know a lot more about the parasite biodiversity. That's out there put about you. What what would your big question if you could answer anything. I don't know. I'm struck by how much we don't understand our own bodies like when you talk to somebody who's got a weird disease there are so many basic questions we don't know the answers to like. How much are your hormone levels. Fluctuating or how many little microbes are growing in your gut or dying in your gut or eating each other in your gut there so many questions. We don't know the answer to because we don't have very basic data about what's going on and of course that's fascinating to me because my wife studies the microbiome in the gut. Things are happening inside the human body. But also i'm deeply fascinated by the deepest questions of the universe. The ones that are pike as listeners. A robbery also interested in. So i would love to be there when a black hole is formed to understand how that happens to see it in action. I feel like we could learn so much about the nature of the universe. We can solve some problems in quantum physics and general relativity. Maybe even get clues that would allow us to form. A theory of quantum gravity would be totally awesome. If we could be there. I would love show up like a thousand years from now and hopefully we have both of those questions totally answered and figure out which one ended up being actually more complicated. Because i i find trying to understand how the brain works with all of the connections that the brain has and it seems like so many of these diseases like cancer we thought was going to be straightforward once we had a human genome and we still haven't figured it out because there's so many interacting pieces in figuring out seem so tough anyway. Let's two thousand years which one of your two big questions ended up being more complicated. Harvard raised complexity between biology physics. Absolutely there's so many questions where we don't even really understand how to ask the right question because we are so clueless and i think in the thousand years look back maybe like what. Why are they even asking that question. It's ridiculous like give you try to read the writings of natural philosophers from one thousand years ago like manual. You guys on the wrong track. You're not even thinking about what the interesting stuff is in three hundred years to get around like asking the right question and figuring out how to do basic experiments to answer it. Yeah i think we all want to believe that science works in like a nice stepwise progression. Whatever question you're working on sort of the next step in the ladder but history shows us that every once in a while people are often ladder entirely you know swimming in a pool somewhere totally wrong and all you can do is hope that you're not at the wrong place at the wrong time but anyway that's i feel like that..

Venus Missions: All the Burning Questions NASA Hopes to Answer
"The long the newseum drought is over. Here's planetary society editor. Ray pauleta ray. Welcome back and thank you for this. June ninth article double venus missions all the burning questions nasa hopes to answer no pun intended. I'm sure double it's now triple right. Tell us about this new announcement from the european space agency. Yes so we're actually getting not one not two but three missions to venus which is to be super exciting. The third mission is actually called envision. Yes say just announced. Recently that they're going to be sending their own spacecraft to venus which is just incredible. I mean it's been thirty years since nasa has sent spacecraft venus. The last one. I believe was magellan. So it's kind of wild that everything is just turning up venus. It's about time thirty one years since that. Lots of magellan. It's just absolutely crazy that we had to wait this long. We hope to have the principal. Investigators for both of the nasa missions. On pretty soon maybe we can get the vision Equivalent of a pi as well. There are a lot of questions that we hope. These missions are going to help us to answer. Even if they don't provide full answers you cover a lot of them in this article. One of them we go back to that drought. I mentioned at the top of this segment. Water there's all the speculation about did venus. Was it a much wetter place. Billions of years ago like mars. Is this going to help us with that. Yeah it's really incredible. I mean when you think of something like venus. It's hard to imagine that there is anything ever even just resembling an ocean on the planet right but was actually a good chance that hey there might have been a watery past so i think that with davinci plus the spacecraft is actually going to drop a sphere through venus's atmosphere and measure some of those noble gases that could be there and that seems to be a big clue in finding out whether or not venus ever had an ocean. And

After a 15 month long cruise, the Magellan spacecraft will go into orbit around Venus Jelen will orbit Venus for one Venus Day equal to 243 Earth Days. Well, that was from 1989 1 of the most successful missions of its kind. It was the first spacecraft to take pictures of pretty much the entire surface of Venus before it burned up in the fiery atmosphere about five years later, now the US space agency Has announced to new missions to the planets. NASA's administrator is Bill Nelson. Very Tass Truth. And eventually, plus These two sister missions, both aimed to understand how Venus became an inferno like world capable of melting lead at the surface, So after all, the focus of late being on Mars Why Venus now question for our North America correspondent David Wyss. Despite the fact that Venus is the closest planet to earth and similar in size and mass and density and composition. It's received less attention than Mars and other destinations in the solar system in recent years, primarily because it's so hot, it's dense atmosphere traps heat from the sun, and that leads to temperatures. Of more than 470 degrees Celsius in some places, but scientists have long believed that Venus may once have harbored. Seas of surface water potentially suitable for life before unknown forces triggered that extreme greenhouse effect, and their interest was rekindled recently when astronomers said that they detected compelling evidence for the presence of a molecule in the clouds around Venus called Falls Feen, which would seem to

Juan Sebastián Elcano Was Actually the First Person to Circumnavigate the Earth
"Ferdinand magellan is often credited with being the first person to circumnavigate the earth. However this isn't true. I don't mean this in the same way that columbus wasn't the first european in the americas because the vikings made it to newfoundland. I i mean magellan never circumnavigated the earth at all period. The magellan voyage did not set out travel around the world. The purpose of the mission was to find a western route to the spice islands. Or what we now call indonesia. They set out in fifteen nineteen only twenty seven years after columbus first landed in the bahamas in fourteen. Ninety two the magellan voyage really just set out to achieve with the columbus expedition tried to to reach asia by sailing west. The difference was that this time they knew there was a gigantic landmass in between europe and asia. And this time they were gonna go around it. Magellan was portuguese so many people assume that his expedition was sponsored by portugal. But that wasn't the case. It was actually a spanish expedition sponsored by king charles. The first the spanish wanted the western route because portugal had a monopoly on the eastern route around africa in through the indian ocean. The expedition consisted of five ships with supplies. Last two full years the total crew consisted of two hundred and seventy minute at the start mostly spanish but with crew from many different countries. The expedition took a major toll. The first ship was lost in fifteen twenty in a storm in argentina. The second ship was abandoned in what is now called the straits of magellan. Several months later the third ship was scuttled in the philippines and may fifteen twenty one because of lack of crew and the fourth was lost in indonesia in december on april twenty seven. Fifteen twenty one. Magellan himself was killed in the philippines by the natives of the island where they landed. He was surrounded and killed with spears. This left the expedition. In a quandary. Its leader was dead. Over half the crew were dead and they were on the other side of the world. They sailed around without any purpose for about six months. And eventually the crew selected one wants fashion elcano a spaniard to be the captain of the last remaining in smaller ships of the fleet.

"Twenty twenty one formula one seasons first major milestone took place that eight mclaren revealing. It's twenty twenty one call the mc l. thirty find and the team finished third and the twenty twenty constructors championship. And it's sayings powell. Thanks to trump as well as getting don ricardo as replacement for karla signs genius with all that change comes expectation and pressure and in this remark podcast recording. We'll be discussing what we learned from town. Today i'm joined sports f jonathan able to sports reports late smith and our technical editor jacob. Select and jake. I'm coming to you. I i question today what are the main takeaway technical changes that you've spotted on the mci five if he changes. There's a lot similar As we expected because twenty twenty cars we know very similar to was twenty. Twenty one calls with regards. Take the carry chassis for covid. Nineteen times Being still prevalent as well so does a few little changes Obviously we know that as the switch to mercedes and that's how big knock on effect to the rear of the car As we know every team has been lifted. Two tokens which they may spend on a certain area of the cost Areas requests takings to to develop The rea- off the chassis takes too so maclean seems to suspend its allowance on developing the era of the of the car. Try get as much bang free stock as it can because switching to the gym obviously if it can improve things there as well then. That's us what he's got a day. let's frontino which is relatively the same. As last year they introduce the. If you like mercedes star news In practicing magellan the carried forward. And i think part of the thinking behind that was because obviously that requires a cross strokes to change to to change in that requires tokens and so if they could do it right in the middle of the season than they wouldn't have to spend it going forward this season Hit them a little bit hard in when when the new updates first came out but they got it together. The end of the season. The place constructors championships. Obviously these changes date eventually bath fruits. But i think the key thing is of mentioned. The tokens have been spent on the rear of the chassis. The mercedes engine is not running power unit. It's a different architecture. It's a different layout and they've got to know. Just consider the mounting points on the chassis but cooling requirements as well and these will have a knock on effect on how the chassis is developed. So that's something they've had to consider. I think the most obvious showing if that is the change. The shape in the air intake before it isn't massively exciting. Last year. Had something of a darth vader mask kind of design which was is incredibly strange design. If you like is a lot more conventional this time it falls in line with what mercedes has every power unit has different cooling requirements Different architectures mentioned in the so getting the right cooling the right parts and the right amounts of cooling is is ideal so that's why they've gone to not direction obviously facing them say he's power unit into the back as well. That's that's something of a change so you'll the body sculpting in different way if you look to reaching point williams and mercedes as well last year. You'd see they'd have sleeping design on on the top of the sideboards and that's just to simply allow to drop down and on top of the floor and if you build you allowing high pressure that's to the floor. And if you building that pressure difference you're getting the disease to work harder now as we know another knock on effect of these regulations is the diffuse the as less potent this time around. They've had fifty millimeters lopped off the internal fences and so getting the to work as hard as it can is absolutely vital and say trying to get that clean athletes the back of the car. That's going to be so so important. In this situation to the regulations and other thing that we denote as well as the flows of changed mclaren has given us a glimpse of what it might look like by. Think that keeping their cards close to the chest on that one if you look at it. It's very very pads down. Let's say it's it's quite simplistic and we saw designs in practice the end of last year. That were a lot more complex. It'd be fat to say so again. Yeah the keeping something that keeping that caused cliffs that chest on that one because this might be an area of intense development of such but if team has a really good idea for that and is able to make up any ground. They've lost because they've lost of the all of these toys at the rear. End the slots the cuts if they can make up with what they do have available to them. It'd be a very lucrative area of development. So i think they're trying to sort of you know play expectations down on that front and just at the rear as well. The railing end. Play is brand new. If you'd seen that curved streak design something that has invented which is something. We don't say a whole lot on this on this channel but something they invent since one thousand nine hundred thousand. Something red bull ran with as well in in twenty twenty. So it's an interesting inclusion. it'd be interesting to see how how that works with the rest of the car. So there's a few to summarize a few new bits that we can see. I think there are more to come. By as a continuation. Looks very very sensible development of mclaren pops what we were

"Scurvy killed. 100 of the original 170 crew during Vasco da Gama is voyage to the Indian subcontinent that started in 14 97.

Here is how one of Magellan's crew described conditions in his journal quote. We ate only old biscuit reduced to powder and full of grubs and stinking from the dirt, which the rats had made on it when eating the good biscuit. And we drink water that was yellow and stinking. The men were so hungry that if any of them caught a rat, he could sell it for a high price to someone who would eat it. And 15 35 French explorer Jacques Cartier, established a fort across the ST Charles River from the era quien village of Static, Oona. That's near what's now Quebec City. That winter was extremely harsh. Cartier's ships became icebound. They were not able to return to France is planned, and when they heard of an illness that was spreading through the indigenous population, they tried to cut off contact with them. Then that same illness started to spread through Cardia his own men in an account translated by Richard Hack lit, it's described as this quote. Some did lose their strength and could not stand on their feet. Then did their legs swell their sin, a shrink as black as any coal. Others also had all their skin spotted with spots of blood of a purple color, then did a send up to their ankles, knees, thighs, shoulders, arms and neck. Their mouth became stinking their gums so rotten that all the flesh did fall off even to the roots of the teeth, which also all fall out. About the middle of February of 110 persons that we were. There were not 10 whole. There were already eight dead and more than 50 sick and as we thought, past all hope of recovery So at some point, Cartier went for a walk and encountered Dome Aguila, who was the son of Don Kona, who was the chief of static, Ona dumb a guy. It's hold Cartier about a treatment for this disease, which was to prepare a tea from the leaves of a local tree. The tree is not conclusively identified today. But the most likely candidate as the eastern white cedar, who's leaves always contain some vitamin C, but have a whole lot more of it in the new growth that comes out in the early spring. Although at least 25 men in the fort died of scurvy, this cure was effective for the ones who survived. There is a core, of course. Ah, whole lot more to this story outside the part about scurvy. Cartier had actually abducted Doma and his brother on his earlier voyage and forced them to accompany him back to France, bringing them back to North America with him and 15 35. At the end of his second voyage, Cartier abducted them for a second time, along with their father and seven other indigenous people.

Others also had all their skin spotted with spots of blood of a purple color, then did a send up to their ankles, knees, thighs, shoulders, arms and neck. Their mouth became stinking their gums so rotten that all the flesh did fall off even to the roots of the teeth, which also all fall out. About the middle of February of 110 persons that we were. There were not 10 whole. There were already eight dead and more than 50 sick and as we thought, past all hope of recovery So at some point, Cartier went for a walk and encountered Dome Aguila, who was the son of Don Kona, who was the chief of static, Ona dumb a guy. It's hold Cartier about a treatment for this disease, which was to prepare a tea from the leaves of a local tree. The tree is not conclusively identified today. But the most likely candidate as the eastern white cedar, who's leaves always contained some vitamin C, but have a whole lot more of it in the new growth that comes out in the early spring. Although at least 25 men in the fort died of scurvy, this cure was effective for the ones who survived. There is a core, of course. Ah, whole lot more to this story outside the part about scurvy. Cartier had actually abducted Doma and his brother on his earlier voyage and forced them to accompany him back to France, bringing them back to North America with him and 15 35. And at the end of his second voyage, Cartier abducted them for a second time, along with their father and seven other indigenous people. All but one of them died before cardio returned to North America for his third voyage in 15 41. You're listening to Sunday.

Here is how one of Magellan's crew described conditions in his journal quote. We ate only old biscuit reduced to powder and full of grubs and stinking from the dirt, which the rats had made on it when eating the good biscuit. And we drink water that was yellow and stinking. The men were so hungry, that is any of them caught a rat. He could sell it for a high price to someone who would eat it.

What direction do you think the party should go in? Tell us your story. 8552361 a one A. And we'll share some of your thoughts tomorrow on one, eh? Now, let's get back to talking about Mars and the three different missions getting there this month with Nadia Drake, a contributing writer at National Geographic, and Michelle Thaler, assistant director for science communications at NASA, and I want to turn to this voice mail. We got Hi. This is Connor from Wayland, Michigan. I was wondering if this round of Mars missions would be more focused towards scouting possible landing sites for future manned missions. We also heard from Jeffrey, who emailed. Long ago I worked on the Magellan mission to Venus with an aerospace company. I came to realize that unmanned missions like this one provide much more bang for the buck than the extravagantly more expensive, complicated and dangerous. Manned missions Rocket on. So, Michelle when it come to you first. Is part of this mission about scouting for, you know a future manned mission and should've manned mission really be the focus. Well, you know, so as far as the this mission is, it's not so much scouting for landing sites for the next two human mission because we actually have some really, really wonderful reconnaissance satellites that have met the surface of Mars and excellent detail. So you know, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been returning just beautiful images of the surface of Mars. So I think that we would probably use our orbiters more to to find, you know sites for human landing. One thing that is different about this mission is that it actually has an instrument called Moxie, and what marks he's going to be doing is again one of these sort of very low level technology demonstrations, although there's nothing low level about moxie. But we're trying to see if we can actually isolate oxygen from the Martian atmosphere. And yes, I mean, that is actually done with an eye toward future human exploration not only isolate oxygen to breathe but but specifically to make rocket fuel. You know that your Mars is AH planet. It's a lot more difficult to blast off from them. The moon you even though the gravity is much weaker than the Earth's, But even so, could we do that? Could we actually land on Mars and find a way to keep people alive and safe for that amount of time? Now. I mean, I have to say that the reason that we're not sending humans to Mars right now is that we do not know how to safely land and keep people safe. On the surface of Mars. Mars is another planet. Unlike the moon, you can't just hop off in any time you want and get down to earth, so people that land on Mars and try to actually little mission there may have to live there as much as a year. And they can't just go back to Earth if something goes wrong, So I mean, I think it's a long way to go yet until we're confident that we could do this safely. And in the meantime yeah, I mean that there is perhaps human exploration of the moon, something that allows us to test our technology for eventual trip to Mars. But, you know, I'm a scientist, and so so I am looking at this Mars Exploration Rover as a sort of a treasure trove of the science. We're going to return. Possible evidence of ancient life. You know this business. This incredibly old crater that we know from looking at satellite observations has clays in the bottom clays that were cracked as they dried sort of like a desert here on Earth. And that their channels going both in and out of this crater that were once filled with water. So you know, I mean, I'm looking at the science and the astrobiology the idea of actually finding environment for life for me, That's the most exciting thing about this mission..

Artificial Intelligence in Industry
What it Means to be "AI Ready" - with Matthew Mattina
"This is Daniel Magellan. You're listening to the and podcast. We speak this week on the topic of. Readiness. What is it look like to truly be ready as an enterprise if you're a consultant, you're selling into enterprises and you want to build a success wave. This client stands in what might need to be worked on or if you are an AI champion within an enterprise, you want to get an understanding of where do we stand how ready are we should be an awfully helpful episode our guest. This Week is Matthew Martina who's the head of The machine learning research lab, A. R. M. A. R. Ramsey multibillion dollar semiconductor and software development company wholly owned by Softbank Softbank One of the biggest venture funds in the world based out in. Japan, and Matthew speaks to us about his criteria and his way of thinking through with Ai Readiness looks like in an enterprise again, if you WANNA a checklist to list of features away to assess take view on your own company or that of your clients. I think at this episode should be awfully helpful. If you're just getting started with deploying a, we have a free guide called beginning with Ai. It's special guy for non technical professional. So if you do not have a technical background, but you still want to understand what is it realistically look like to deploy artificial intelligence were the key factors to understand for a adoption. If you're not the person writing code, you're more focused on the business strategy side. Of things then you'll WANNA download that free pdf brief it's an e. m. e. R. J. dot com slash B e g, and then the number one. So bg like beginning and then the number one that's RJ DOT COM slash bg one that pdf should give you some extra details to layer on top of some of the insights that Matthew provides for us here today. So further ado this is Matthew mcconaughey with arm on the and business podcast So I'll kind of dive in first here on this topic of Ai Readiness and ask you about what you consider to be sort of the core components, the core aspects of Iranian s within the enterprise obviously a lot of moving parts here what comes to mind for you? Yeah. That's a good question I think. One of the core questions is one that I think people sometimes miss with respect to a I is. Now there's the problem that you're trying to solve. Of course, understanding that from the get go is key in pretty much any scientific or engineering discipline, but then with Ai. Knowing how your machine learning or a model actually going to be deployed. So what is that model gonNA run on in the field as it can run on a some kind of a big server in a cloud data center somewhere with no terabytes of memory and an of GPS and processors, or is that model ultimately going to be deployed on some kind of you know very constrained embedded device say you know in a in a o not censor or mobile phone or a car and everything in between? So think what we sometimes see is that a model will be developed by a data scientist or or. application will be developed without a good understanding deployment and where that gets prickly as you've developed this model, it uses you know. Fifty gigabytes of memory and then Lo and behold actually want to deploy it on a constrained device that has you know two hundred and fifty six kilobytes of memory, and now you need to do some surgery. Got It. So readiness here you're talking about you know not only involving the model, but involving sort of what are we going to run it on DC? This is potentially part of the four thought process for companies obviously, not everybody's GonNa have devices. Out in the field, people have security cameras, La- run things on mobile phones you know in in cars or maybe heavy industry the have it on a boat somewhere maybe other folks are just GonNa have stuff up in the cloud but for you, it sounds like maybe that thought process should happen as we're coming up with ideas not sort of after we've developed a great model idea that those have to be married to hardware sort of at the brainstorm phases kind of what you're getting at. That's exactly right as part of the upfront? Planning. Stage of enterprise preparing for a readiness. Yes. Some consideration for. What devices is this actually gonna run on and what are the key characteristics of those devices and and the interesting about it is that like I said, you can build models you know and build ai applications that you know recognize faces and use lots and lots of memory or they can have models at recognize faces and use very little memory. And making that trade off and understanding that that trade off will need to be made between accuracy and memory upfront will save people pain down
Your Brain on Facts
"What was so big about movable type. Well movable type meant that each letter had its own little block and they could be arranged in any format that was needed to make any text. Prior to that, the entire page of text had to be carved in one single block of wood like an enormous stamp. Now, consider the amount of time it would take to carve one such block then multiply that by the number of pages in even the shortest book. Any printing press was an improvement over hand-lettered manuscripts but the Gutenberg press could print over two hundred pages per minute which gave the world what would be called the Gutenberg forty two line, Bible. Books and the ideas that they contained were no longer the exclusive purview of the very wealthy. Greater access to ideas and information was a causative force behind such things as the renaissance, the Protestant reformation and the industrial revolution. But Gutenberg did not create the first movable type press. A printing press with movable metal type was developed in Korea during the Goria Dynasty, which ran from eight nineteen to thirteen ninety, two in a desperate attempt to preserve religious texts in the face of a Mongol invasion. The effort was successful but only just barely. A single copy of a single volume of one book remains. It's called the G, which is the abbreviated title of a Korean Buddhist and policy whose title can be translated as in theology of great Buddhist priests Zen teachings. GDP is easier to say. The key is a collection of experts from the teachings of the most revered Buddhist monks throughout successive generations collated by a monk named Kyogon. It was published in two volumes in thirteen, seventy two though the first volume has been lost completely. Further weakening the Gutenberg was first position. The Korean press wasn't even the first press that had movable type. The earliest known non-metallic movable type press was developed in China in the tenth. Century. That press used clay blocks which would prove to be too fragile. Though, it was thought to have directly influenced the Korean. design. There's also evidence that Gutenberg's press may not be an example of simultaneous invention. A record in the Swiss Museum of paper indicates a papal delegation to `gorio brought printing technology back to Europe. Korea's claim to origination carries some serious bone fee days in the form of two thousand one edition to the memory of the world program by UNESCO the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization. Three years later, the Jiechi memory of the world prize was created, which quote recognizes instiutions that have contributed to the preservation and accessibility of documentary heritage to safeguard against collective amnesia neglect the ravages of time and climate conditions and willful and deliberate destruction. If the listener would like to see the Jixian person they might want to bone up on their French. Rather than reposing rightfully in Korea, the G. has been kept in La Bibliotheque Nationale France in Paris. It was acquired under let's call them unclear circumstances by the first French Console to Korea and past Tula Bibliotheque upon his death. The consensus in Korea is unsurprisingly that they would like it to be returned that cultural artifacts belong in their country of origin. La Bibliotheque adamantly refuses arguing that the Jiechi is out of humanity's common heritage and therefore doesn't belong to anyone. Which raises the question at least in this reporters mind. If it belongs to everyone and therefore no one. What would it matter if they gave it back? On a brighter note, a wood carving print of the cheeky is currently kept in the National Library of Korea. Sometimes a person we remember as the first to do something wasn't preempted by someone else. They merely failed to complete the thing they're credited with. Such as the case with Ferdinand Magellan the name long attached to the first circumnavigation of the earth.

Shell cuts dividend for first time since WW2

Shell cut their dividend for the first time since World War Two and that's the stock recovery on this week's single stock focus. The Prophet Hunter wrote an article on Saturday about the dividend cut and said quote buyers. Beware Royal Dutch. Shell Asia's closed Friday at over thirty one dollars and the b-shares closed just under thirty dollars. The Prophet Hunter starts out by discussing energy transitioning to renewables and then talks about why this cycle may be different while some anything we could see an oil and gas megamerger wave. I believe they may be disappointed. At least in the short medium term listening to energy majors earnings call over the last couple of weeks suggest. Management teams are prioritizing the deployment of capital in the renewable energy sector where we could see the direction of travel for. Ma is towards acquiring utilities or renewable power producers in two thousand eighteen total acquire direct energy of French Electric Utility this followed their 2016 acquisition of saft a battery maker for over a billion dollars. The company plans to start producing batteries by twenty twenty three Prophet Hunter then goes on to discuss shells dividend cut when Shell announced a cut in its dividend on thirtieth April for the first time since World War Two. What was most striking was the severity? Of the reduction. A seventy percent cut which caught investors off guard and illustrates the existential crisis unfolding within boardrooms. I believe the move underscores the transition. To a new era the prevailing yield is now three and a half percent and could mark a major step toward repositioning the business towards renewable focused business those expecting the dividend to be hiked oil markets. Recover maybe left disappointed instead. Management could be on the hunt to acquire utility or invest directly in renewable projects. The good news is that renewables are increasingly becoming. The lowest cost mechanism of providing energy and household are beginning to embrace the transition to electrification of transport and reduction in plastics which also affects oil demand. The profit hundred then gets to the bad news. The bad news for the oil majors is they are relatively late to the party. Existing renewable players such as vestis next Aaron Canadian solar have already gained a significant footprint and offer investors. A pure play exposure to renewables as the big oil majors entered. The renewable space returns on capital are likely to disappoint given strong competition for capital from new and incumbent operators

Changing the Healthcare Space with Voice Technology with Dan Messina Co-Founder & EVP of HandsFree Health
"Now Dan. You've been in healthcare for over thirty five years. You've been the CEO of Magellan. House the CFO AETNA HOUSE. And you served as a partner of health advocate which showed for nearly ten one hundred times. Excuse me of the outside capital invested. And I'm curious. Why did you begin a journey into healthcare so many years ago and then why in the last few years did you decide that the next right move was to found lead a voice based healthcare company? A great question. I mean I think that I wish I had some really glorious story to tell you but the fact that matter results in the right place at the right time I had been with AETNA and Cigna in the late eighties early nineties and during that timeframe there was a big transition from multi line insurance coverage to healthcare and healthcare began to grow rapidly and I was right in the middle of that so gaming opportunity to be part of the process of transitioning CIGNA and Aetna from their multi line offerings to just healthcare and you know put me in a healthcare world. Which was you know? Maybe a lot of sense balance sheet perspective but I don't think necessarily it was beneficial for the end users perspective and all these companies grew rapidly and You know worked for them but I think the members found themselves facing a lot of difficulties in trying to figure out the healthcare process. That's what led to help advocate about twenty years ago me and others from the large health plan companies realize that the to get through the healthcare process was nothing easy and we thought whom better to help them figure out their way through the maze that people to help contribute to the maze and so we started health advocate opposite. Frankly couldn't believe how successful that company became basis form. It was simply a company that was providing any response and you healthcare question. Any individual may have nobody that twenty year span at grew from two forty four million members with over a thousand employees and yes we were able to sell it for about one hundred times. The invested capital was which was obviously very impressive. That then let me two hands. Free health with my colonel the other CO founder of the company hands. Free Health is really in some respects like health advocate where it's responsive to questions that people may have but it does in a voice recognition fashion voice responses service. We think that voice response is a direction that the whole country's going and healthcare is kind of catching up but getting there right now and of course. Healthcare has unique difficulties voice response because of the terminology and being able to convert that terminology voice. You Know Bill Gates. I think twenty years ago the healthcare the content is key and I agree with that and and Between the content and the voice. There's no simple task and I think that's one reason. Healthcare is behind. But if you look at all the stats. Everyone's growing dramatically voice annoys people are increasing utilization voice so it makes sense to have health be part of the growth model and that's where hands free health does come into

I'm going to New Orleans to visit two of my dearest girlfriends. We haven't been in the same room together since Obama's first term.

I don't own going out close anymore because I do not partake in going out. I don't go to places with lines out front and if I have to scream to communicate I leave.

I love that i'm a veteran obviously and you know it's really important for me to highlight these type of things that we're you're going to be highlighting as we're talking today and just the overall mentality philosophy on your either all in or you're not i mean fire nation you all or you're not as long as it was really cool for me is when we were chatting a little bit in the pre interview talk a taylor. Let me know that he used to listen to entrepreneurs on fire while he was on the sea so talk a little bit taylor yeah for sure <hes> so the big thing on the sea was and i think every sailor in the world can relate to this is books six and audiobooks our life on the water. That's what keeps you going so anytime. We're in port we download podcasts and podcasts and podcasts and audiobooks and one thing <unk> a really wanted to do. Was you know put myself through marketing school one of residency because i wasn't going to school or anything in you might as well. I've got all this time hands so i i ended up reading every we single marketing paper case study anything especially with the harvard business class and then anything i get my hands on. Read it and listen to it and your podcasts. Were one one of them. I downloaded everything could in we're at sea especially on the night watches now. They're under the stars and you know twenty thirty foot waves crashing over the boat and using your podcast me saying are you prepared to ignite and that's what i love fire nation so if you're listening to us right now and you're someplace cool. Maybe you're hiking kilimanjaro kilimanjaro. Maybe you're on the seas. Maybe you're doing any of a number of things on a chairlift skiing or whatever <hes> take a picture or to send me an email. Do whatever you want posts on social media italian instagram. I love seeing where you are listening to entrepreneurs on fire so let's talk about your early. Life real quick bouts before the military yeah before the military <hes>. I think it started out like a lot of guys that i served with. You know there was a lot of places go a lot of things to do and it was like he didn't really have a whole lot doors and you know sitting there one day ahead like a bottle of mustard in my fridge. That's all i owned in the world had that and my dog and i was like well. I gotta do some to change us. Life and i think a lot of people people that listen to this can relate to that. You know you get you get to a point real like it. I'm gonna dig myself out of this whole organised keep on living in the darkness and then you make that conscious decision to do something about it and join the military. It was a stepping stone you know to do some of their life and and i'm from texas so being a patriots. You know big deal. Totalling yeah wanted to serve the country in i mean that decision was was pretty i didn't i mean that's where that decision was. I didn't really think i was pretty young at the time didn't really think too far ahead of like what the toll it would take on my body and my mind when i got out in which is what we're working on now and that's important. I went through the same process. When i got out you know after a thirteen month tour of duty in iraq. I can remember so clearly being back like thinking i had quote unquote. Maybe dodge that the p._t._s._d. Bullets but then played the next six months just like a waking up covered in sweat. I'm not just talking like sweating adding. I'm like my whole bed was so sopping wet day the cheese the she's every single night i take a shower. I mean it was like a non. Stop thing like now after you know i i saw some people people have some conversations like i know that was just like all this adrenaline and stress and anxiety that was like releasing itself you know while i was sleeping and all these other things going on but this is so unreal fire nation so if you have a loved one who's been through something you know like a war or just a traumatic experience and they're likely dealing with p._t._s._d. Like there's some real real issues there and we're gonna be talking about things like the veteran suicide rates but guess guess what it doesn't just apply to veterans at applies to human beings in general we live in a very difficult world and this is the thing that we myself until our one kind of chat about today until you have this idea about an expedition so kind of give us the the background behind the expedition. Why did it start ends. You know why details like cape horn all that stuff right. Oh you hit it right on headman and then that's that's what a lot of guys go through and everything goes back to the states and i don't know about what your process when when you got out the army whenever i got on the navy not one single person now process system talked about what your body would go through when you got back in house a big deal for me because when i got back i went through the same thing you know. My body was sweating for no original just like you said you know my girlfriend. At the time you know would wake up and it should be covered in sweat for no reason and then there's those alone times whenever you're sitting at a couch and after after your body's been running on that adrenalin for so many years it depends on it and there's lots of studies out there that have shown when your body runs on that amount of stress for so many ears who on a physiological level your brain changes it depends on that adrenalin being dumped your body whenever it doesn't get that all the time you're by just starts releasing for no reason at all and so it'd be sitting on the couch not doing anything. Nobody's home in a body would just start running away from me you know and <hes> that was scary sale especially if nobody told you that was going to happen to your body when you got out so that's where the problem started and a new my buddy wrote a book and he did interviews all over the world with veterans returning back from iraq and afghanistan more for both from the u._k. Okay and u._s. And call him and i'd be like hey man like is this normally you've seen anybody else going through this you know and because there's no you don't wanna be the guy that can't handle handle when you get out and that's where it was. I didn't ever think it affects me. I didn't think it was big deal on in get out and then it was and so i call him in his do not alone. You know all these guys have interviewed are saying the exact same thing and i mean that blew my mind. Because what about this. Why did i know that i was the only one doing doing this and boom. There's the problem like okay well now. We're going to do something about it and then graduated into will. How can we reach people today. What is the best way to reach people in this environment today and they goes into social media and film so we decided to to film something something epic. We didn't know what yet and always wanted to sail the world so i was like well. I think the greatest thing to conquer in the world. Today's cape horn cape horn is is the deadliest waters in the world has down for centuries and we talked about men everest but it was like four thousand people have gone to mount efforts and you could pay somebody sixty she thousand dollars to carry your stuff to the top of mountain. You know there's not going to grab a whole lot of attention. So what's the next big thing in you know just kept coming back to cape horn and and <hes> that's where made that decision was we're going to sail to cape horn and you know we didn't have a dime tornadoes or anything at all but we're gonna make happen in <unk> ended up finding that's like shell of a fiberglass sailboat in completely rebuilding it for the next six months from the ground up new engine sales mass rigging everything and <hes> we did it we set sail and then we you know went right into three hurricanes in two tropical storms after that big wakeup call well well. I wanna talk about this biggest storm in a second here but i mean before we do this kind of type a little bit of a bow because you talked about this l. processing in the military in general and and you didn't really have much support or really any kind of information going out. I didn't either and it's really unfortunate situation. In the reality. -ality is this is that the military it's great at what is great at prepping for war training men and women to fight conquering being the enemies all these different things the military is great at and i saw that first hand you know being a tank commander in iraq like i saw what our military is great and why we're the best military torri in the world you know at this current moment time but are we not great at is seeing through the end of the people who spent the time in war four in having that adrenaline you mentioned seeing them through to a healthy mental states which of course is a long and detailed and very ever-changing process so just wanted to get that out there and this is why people like myself and taylor are looking to kind of bring this out to the world to hopefully help future military veterans veterans that are going to be going through these similar things future soldiers and whatever it might be and also just kind of letting people know that you know there's situations in your life. When you have super traumatic scenario you know. What were you like survived a house fire or armed robbery or there's a lot of things that can happen in this world. Take a puts you in a similar situation that myself and taylor in mentally emotionally etc on all that stuff so let's go now fast forward because because you figured out that you wanted to make this big statement to kind of really bring the world is to veterans and the struggles that we go through and the suicide rate being so high in the states etc which we will talk more about in a little bit so you decided to cape horn being the most dangerous waters in the world in violation. It's crazy. He read some of these older books folks which i love these historical nonfiction and fiction books about the old the age of sail those old wooden ships trying to round cape cape horn. They just couldn't do it. It would take a months and months and months and by the way some of them would have to turn around and go the other way and what is the other way like thirty thousand miles like around the world the other way to avoid cape horn so talk about that and about the biggest storm story that you have k. k. porn. porn. It's It's where where <hes> <hes> the the south south south south pacific pacific and and south south atlantic atlantic currents currents meet meet so so it it creates creates massive massive waves. waves. You're You're looking looking at at one one hundred hundred foot. foot. Seas is average out there and right before we left to go down there. Were talking to some people that just rounded cape horn in there like you know there's not really g._p._s. on there any weather prediction services because we're looking at whether predicting services and they were calling for forty foot seas and about sixty knots wind will they talk to the chilean armata on the that are stationed at the lighthouse on cape horn and they were looking at one hundred twenty knots of wind one hundred ten foot seas so yeah. There's no way to to know what you're getting into until you get down there and all the old tactics of like looking at the clouds and read and sees and stuff and you get down there. Go out the window because the weather changes on a very fast gaelic every fifteen minutes. You'll look on a different system. Rolling in and people were messaging me like you've got the system rolling in you know in ten hours. I need to know what's happening at ten minutes. 'cause they move so fast down there super super crazy. We were right outside. The magellan strait was when i you know southern storm hit us and came on with a vengeance it just start building and building and building. You know we were looking at fifty knots. What's on the low end. Whenever it started building up and then the sea started picking up about forty feet and that's whenever you know you have the gut check we have talked with crude and your guys is is worth it. You know we're going to keep going and we're going to do this or anchor and you know this is. It's personal for everybody on our boat because each one of us have lost a significant amount people to suicide back back in st louis all our our best buddies you know i think a lot of people can't understand that like why would you ever put yourself through that. Why would you ever go through the season. You know you could die and it's like well. I saw oh. I almost died myself almost one of those guys that tried to commit suicide when they come back to the states and then imagine spending the next you know six years your life for every single one of your best friends killing themselves i would what kind of world is at eleven so it makes a decision pretty easy like. Do you wanna do this yet because it's worth it like if we can save. They've one of our friends that are coming back from overseas it. It's worth it absolutely so we had that real conversation is like yeah. We're gonna continue on will the season of getting to about what's seventy feet and about whenever they're about sixty feet. We're looking at her like all right man. I dunno i can do this. You know start praying and <hes> we got hit by. This one enjoyed huge roadway. There's a storm that was brunner. South gay porn is about three hundred miles south bus and it was sent waves of up where we were and one of those was that seventy foot rogue wave and completely took us on a broadside and you know put the mass in the water research taking taking on water and it's in those moments as you know whatever you can just look at everybody in the crew and you're like now. We're gonna keep fighting still fighting you know and just real quick. What's the water temperature over in the middle icebergs. There's there's ice. I saw around us. It's freezing you know so when you're emerged in like being arrested reminding you how long we live we had six minutes easily yet six minutes. We'd have dry suits on or anything we had our cold cold weather gear but the storm came on so fast. We don't have time to put any dry suits on. That's a process so we got six minutes to get this boat backup emptied water and start art start getting our body temperature back where it needs to be and that's what we did you know we're about waist deep water in the boat and on our side gina sink <unk> brand and we got hit by this wave that came out of nowhere and flip the boat back up and we'd start bailing water and we ended up leaving. We ended up surviving which is one of those moments where should not have. It's still blows my mind to this. Stay is looking out for us fire nation. I've got shivers going down my spine. Just thinking about that. I mean like i i get cold going in in this caribbean water right here which i don't even know the exact temperature is but i think in like the sixties or seventies fahrenheit so i can't even imagine what it would be like in in that timeframe in down by cape horn so i hope that this story's making you stop and think like it was meant to because we have a
