"Aina moved to the hill country in Texas to get closer to the people there who are very closed off year. New Yorker. And I. Can anyone tell that you have to move in and really with your wife? Get to know these women and it's astonishing what you find out. There was no water. No electricity in this area to Lyndon Johnson brought it. Talk about not just discovering the hardship of the these women's lives, but realizing if maybe the story wasn't going to get told Wilson in the hill, country are about seventy five feet deep. That's the that's the water table and I. I remember one of these very elderly women saying to me, your city boy, so she went to a garage, and there was her old water bucket with afraid Roe still attached. She took me over to the well that was covered with boards. She pushed the boards off and she dropped the bucket into the well, she said now pull it up and tell you it was heavy, and there was this heavy bar would like cattle. Where like house where? She said we put this on, so we could look at a time. And then you knew I was from New York and one thing I noticed, was the women the hill country seem to me to be much more stooped than city Wilma. And I learned that the expression was bent. We got bent thoroughly. This one woman said to me I swore I wasn't going to be bent like my mother that as soon as my kids started to come, and I had to carry the water I knew I would look exactly like my mother looked so Lyndon Johnson is a political genius. He's running for Congress and he joins the magic warned he says if you will elect me, I'll bring. To this country and you won't look like your mother looks, and it seemed impossible, there was no damn. There was no source of water power or any other power for electricity. A dammit bill started on a river at the edge of it, but it was the depression. The damage stopped, and you've. They built the dam. How were they gonna Lay Loins, thousands tens of thousands of miles of lines across these Empty Hill's connect these scattered form, but he persuaded the President Franklin Roosevelt to do it. And that was his verse rated shavings. Robert Caro, you say you wanted people readers to see the epoch grandeur the majesty in the storytelling, and by that you meant. Obviously these people, these you know not just the powerbrokers, but the ones affected by them, but also the powerbrokers you know Moses. He built the bridges that make New York look like a Christmas tree. At night, he built the parks. He did these great things, but then terrible flaw brutal to to people who got in his way Johnson. Will you just described what he did? For the people of the hill country, he also rammed through civil rights legislation, but then. Fell, because of his escalation of the Vietnam War in places in the book working you say how you you when you think of each of them. At certain times, you could just cry. How do you feel about these two men? Oh, it's very, that's. Terrific questions mixed? The take Lyndon Johnson so now it's the latest book in the series Johnson sort of course Vietnam as a major. Part of it, and that's the tragedy, but you'd think. Also Johnson had a compassionate people and a genius for turning that Compassionate to government action. You know ten Jack Kennedy is assassinated. Four days later Johnson has to make this first speech to a joint session of Congress. He's still living in his home down in the kitchen for his aides and speechwriters are around kitchen table, writing the speech and they they said well. We're really not ready yet, but there's one thing we all agree on. Don't make civil rights priority. If you do even win tag Anais the southerners who controlled Congress. You're going to stop you legislative program just like they stopped sanity, don't. Don't do it and Johnson says to them will what the Hell's the presidency for that? And he goes out, and he makes his first speech, and he says my first priority is to pass Jack Kennedy Civil Rights Bill and as he's saying he's saying it to this row of southern senators sitting right in front of him, his fight for civil rights and voting rights is epic. It's an epic of triumph of what government can do. Just as Vietnam is an epic of tracking. Carol I'm thinking of some of the tips that you give and I'm going to abide by one. You say that when you're doing an interview. Silence is a weapon and you constantly right as you're taking your deep notes, you constantly right? The letters s you. What does that mean? Lead shut up. I talk too much so I learned that. If you could just not talk, yes, good question, the guy doesn't want to answer it. One of the best things I found that I can do is not say the next line. There's a silence and we're all human. We feel we WANNA. Fill it up. But if you don't set up. Often Dell's it. and. They'll sell it up with something. They wouldn't otherwise have said so. Yeah, if you look through my notebooks. Renewed see a lot of you, Israel. I'm writing myself right now. Robert Carol. Again his latest book is working researching.

"It. Might wearing the mask view you. ME, Roderick Bradley is in Brandon collies, fifth grade class along with his friend and classmate Byron Puertas, Ruddock's. It was relaxing being at home, but very requirements Miss School because. Your friends again this along. This was a good idea. Why do you think? Because I get like the teacher gets. Help me. If I. Don't get something I could just ask for your help. I really wanted to come back to work. Kelly was one of several teachers who volunteered to hold virtual classes from their classrooms. Eighty percent of Kelly's students were doing fine with distance learning, but were not, and now he can help them in person from nine to eleven. Am I'm a person to person kind of teacher and It was just really odd try to get it all done through zoom, but it's not lost on Kelly that. This is all a big risk. California is seeing outbreaks of Covid nineteen on the rise, and we know the virus can go from adult to a child who then a symptomatic can spread it to others, I'm questioning myself of. HOW CLOSE DO I get? Less than wash hands, use hand sanitizer. There's lot of filtering going on that. Is Hard to get used to write and I'm constantly worried about kids. Being human beings in the sense of being close and talking and touching, and that's been challenging this week. Superintendent Garcia is welcoming eighty students here for summer school. In the fall it could be the entire school of one hundred twenty students Garcia's convinced. The can do this safely. If there's enough investment by the state to create smaller class sizes for here and now I'm Julia mcevoy. In the age of zoom interviews, books convey credibility. In fact, libraries are being called on to send out books to fill shells, but many are already populated with the huge volumes of Robert Caro. He is instant, cred his Pulitzer Prize, winning books on the brilliant but flawed New York Builder Robert Moses and lawmaker then president Lyndon Johnson are considered the best in historical biography, the powerbroker about Moses and four books about Johnson the fifth on the works way in at thousands of pages, Robert Caro spent years on each tracking down. Families carelessly displaced by a Moses. Moving, his own family to the Texas Hill country to understand the people Johnson came from both of Carroll's subjects had power Robert. Caro found out why readers can now find out how he did that. In Twenty nineteen, he published this slim beautiful book working about how he researches interviews and rights and Robert Carroll joins us now on skype. Welcome. Nice to be here on skype. What did you think we with your books? Showing up on those zoom interviews with truth that was sort of storytelling and humbling. My Wife I noticed that she said the powerbrokers behind everybody's head with A. I. Would you feel good about it? You know because that book came out forty six years ago and to see young political reporters using it now that sort of to be honest with you. Throw it into me well, and I was also thinking about the years. You spent writing a book on Robert Moses, the man who ruled New York golding all the bridges. The Parks Jones beach on. On, long, island, he was like God created New York, and you know however many years, but you also felt insane. You had no money, your wife Aina. She's also a research partner sells your home without telling you just to get cash. What kept you going? The more I was finding out the more said you know. No one understands how power works I said Robert Moses was never. Never elected to anything, he held power for forty four years. How did he get that I? Felt it was important to finish the book so that even if I never got to do another one people would understand how our really works in cities, and you learn right off the bat, a one thing that's precious to the researcher. You become files. You're young reporter at the Great Late A. A Long Island Newsday. There's a battle over building an airport. You get a call on a Sunday. You're there alone. Someone at the FAA says I like what your papers doing I'm just GonNa. Leave a door open, and there's going to be some boxes on a table and there you walk in, and you have this treasure trove. Talk about that part of the work finding the papers. Everyone else who's at a picnic on fire island? So no one had a cell phone then so I had to go myself. I remember I worked the woman I. I wrote a memo then I went home and the phone rings and the Managing Editor as secretary, and he was an old time newspaper man who always looked askance because I was from Princeton, his name was Alan Howarth where she wants to see right away, so I said to my wife I'm about to be fire, but instead he makes you an investigative reporter. Because of what you found in those files. You tell him I don't know how to do that. He says what you said. Just remember one thing. Turn every page. And I remember that and sort of try to follow it will my life. WELL NO KIDDING! You later find Robert. Moses papers tucked in a huge building in new. York you discover you know people making deals. Road gets moved. Moses is northern boulevard was supposed to go through this rich guys private golf. Course it juts down four miles away to as you write. Protect him from the Hoi. It leaves the rich alone and destroys these. This road destroys these small farms. Now. You could have just written that off. This road was moved and it went through farms, but you didn't. You went and found the farmers that was a moment of awakening for me Robyn who was the moment that I realized that, if I really wanted to write about political power, I would have to right not only about the men who wielded power, who had power I would have to write also about the powerless. The people who didn't have power and we slow wires were affected for good or for ill and chained to me when I. was interviewing one of these forms, actually saw his wife he had died, and said that they Robert Moses took off. Home was the day or lives were ruined. When you heard that you suddenly said that's an aspect of power to what government can do for people and what it does to people. Well, we mentioned you and your wife..

"In a golden spike is a geologic marker created by global event that leads to long lasting global changes can be used indicate a change in geologic time division. Basically. A golden spike is something that we can relate to a specific time period and it's geologically evident like we can see it in the Strada. Like I said earlier, it's not an arbitrary choice. So when it comes to the prophecy, there are two schools of thought the. I. Stands for choosing a point that is any amenities recent or earlier passed as the starting point of the encompassing in the second stands for choosing a point that is in the. The future like one that we can point to as an absolute point of no return about the first one is much more popular. It's much more likely to be chosen out of the two. So focused on that one. So let's discuss potential starting points, markers or golden spikes for the enthralling. So very popular suggestion, the nineteen fifty. There are quite a few candidate markers for human activity that stands for that time period. One big one is plastic. It's been mass produced since around the nineteen fifties It is found now in almost every environment on earth including the deepest parts of the ocean. There's this Guy Victor. Vo He went down to Mariana Trench in submersible vehicle and Maria Trench. If you don't know, that's the deepest point in the world's ocean, it's just under eleven kilometers. He claims that when he went down there, he found a plastic bag there and I think that's the third report of plastic and Mariana Trench. Basically, we find plastic everywhere and due to the fact that plastic is an artificial product which has a considerable effect on the environment and it is long lasting the environment. So it's a very popular potential marker. Other possible markers are aluminum and concrete. both are widely used. The aluminum that we use industrially is not naturally occurring, which makes it as artificial plastic and ninety percent of the production of aluminum took place after the year nine, hundred fifty. Concrete while invented by the Romans sites uprise only after World War Two. Both are suggested as martyrs for the anthropoid and are referred to as techno fossils and one other very interesting. Suggestion is nuclear processes byproducts. Nuclear weapon testing began in July of nineteen forty-five. Since then artificial radionuclides are spread detected a significantly higher rates than before. These originating nuclear explosion testings in nineteen fifty, two others come from nuclear energy production methods, and other artificial processes. A suggestion for another starting point is the beginning of the industrial revolution and the invention of the steam engine. It's considered to be the point at which technology started developing at an increased rate. The very first interference with the greenhouse gases. Started at this point in time, which is it tightly with global, warming a staple, the rapping. There are a few specific dates in consideration all in the eighteenth century and another third suggestion setting the starting of the therapist seen around eight to twelve thousand years ago. This suggestion is based on the time period in which farming became widely used by the suggested starting point. Around a thousand years ago, humans have reached every habitable continent farming and agricultural techniques have began to make there impact on the earth..

"Their story was almost unbelievable to go in when she was seven this crazy amazing expedition that these two guys Don Walsh and Jacques Picard went down you know so deep in the water is thirty over thirty six thousand feet deep Susan's like a meters like a little bit more than three feet. That's like eleven thousand meters. That's like a mile higher than mount. Everest is tall in that's just crazy the idea that this had been accomplished open the world and the oceans to Gaylon these two guys went to the bottom of the ocean. Why can't I so hold on and where is the deepest part of the ocean after all like do even know where it is yeah so the deepest part of the ocean is the challenger deep in the Mariana Trench? The Mariana Trench is where one of Earth's tectonic plates is moving underneath another creating a deep undersea valley. The deepest part of the trench is named Challenger deep. I love the name Challenger because it feels like it's such a huge challenge to get there but also to map it and to find it. It's far off the east coast of the Philippines pins in the Western Pacific Ocean okay so tell me about this expedition. who were these guys and how did they do it? Did they just like get into a little Snow Globe and dropped out close. That's really close. He was the son of the man who actually built the Trieste. Jacques Picard was a Swiss engineer. He was the son of the inventor of the Trieste a submersible that could make the journey down the deepest place in the ocean and then Don Walsh was lieutenant in the U._S. U._S.. Navy and he was also an oceanographer and he was the lucky guy in the navy who went on this naval expedition was the first navy submersible captain so on January twenty third one thousand nine hundred sixty the plan to make the dive. I've done with the Trieste which they've been practicing with Lesser Depths okay. We'll so what's the Trieste look like well. It's a regular submarine shape but it's got a little ball hanging off the bottom of what's going on with a little ball. That's swear the explorers sit about seven feet long and seven feet long and there are two people in yeah. It was cramps kidding. The whole thing weighed about eight metric tons or eighteen thousand pounds. That's like three full grown elephant very heavy because of the amount of steel it needed to withstand the pressure so like what kind of pressure are you talking about. Were they like really stressed. No she's talking about pressure the way of thirty six thousand feet of water on top of you. If you're swimming in a swimming pool and you dive down to the bottom of the deep end your ears start feeling pressure. That's an a much smaller scale because you're getting sort of compressed by the weight of the water so the bottom of the ocean. There's just a huge amount of pressure right and if the steel bubble surrounding the explorers didn't hold up they would just get squished which is probably not how they wanted their expedition to add now they wanted to come up to the top up so they were about to make a really dangerous trip that had never been done before and that day in nineteen sixty the see was rough and they noticed that some of their instruments had been damaged on the way out to the middle of the ocean dear yeah but they decided that it was still safe enough to go on anyway a little bit broken five hours to descend to the bottom. The submersible moved moved very slowly at first and they were worried that they wouldn't make the diving time to get up before nightfall would surprise them is when they hit a colder layer of water. They completely stopped moving. Why did that happened while they stop so the colder water was more dense than the Trieste even though it was made of heavy steel oh so it was stuck between water layers yeah so how the Trieste worked was was that it carried containers full of iron and needs bladders full of gasoline so gas moves you up iron pulls down anybody who goes into swimming pool? If you want to get to the bottom we kind of float but if you're holding something heavy you're going to okay so they were basically sinking themselves.

"Your father was a scientist straight does right. He was an astronaut to be specific. Fact I'm now the first second generation American astronaut and I flew with the first second generation Russian cosmonaut well. It must be pretty intense going camping with an astronaut for a dad. You have to spend time in the camping simulator. Maybe it would spin you around really fast. I don't I don't know why but probably yeah I mean. I think that you can understand how Richard got into it. He didn't become a scientist. His Video Game Company was so successful when he was young but that hasn't prevented him from doing science good explorer or just like a good scientist is a lifelong learner and has a passion for lifelong learning but I am a college dropout myself yet. I would argue that I'm extremely well educated individual but it comes from being devoted to lifelong learning standing in the explorers club. You get the feeling that every explorer who traveled to the ends of the earth was up for learning something new so we're standing in a parlor room now. What do people do the three well so? This is the sort of members room united where we're just inside the front door pretty much all of the really serious expeditions that I've been a part of those expeditions were kicked off here if not in this room somewhere within these halls it's so special official to visit the Explorers Club because it's filled with things from the club's amazing history you can detours on Youtube and we'll post on our website I saw photographs journals and flags that have been carried to some amazing places. The Explorers Club members have taken explorers club flags on virtually every I that has occurred I of the top of Mount Everest I either of the polls I to the deepest parts of the sea down the Mariana Trench French Richard had some incredible objects that witnessed history being made with famous explorers like Ernest Shackleton in Captain Robert Falcon Scott a few years part of the poll being one they had come to within three degrees of the pole this little tiny piece piece of the wooden sled there was used to get to three degrees from the poll before they turn back that used to belong to Ernest Shackleton. Wow so eight. He had a piece of sled just like sitting in his hand now he was actually framed in. It's the most impressive red's sliver of wood that I've ever seen in my entire life. I don't know I've seen some impressive slivers. So where has Richard explored well. He's been in all over the world including Antarctica twice looking for meteorites but he says exploring extreme places is a different game than it used to be. One hundred years ago was not the same level of unknown. I never felt that my life was at risk. I mean it's this might be a little more dangerous than you're walking on the sidewalk but a lot more safe than these early explorers and these guys were really facing just incredible levels of physical hardship that hardship and risk his muted for some incredible stories that I've loved my entire life so you can read about the race to the polls or the first summit of Mt Everest or even landing on the moon. Those were all explorers club members so we're some sort of a place of history that goes all over the world you're exactly right into outer-space ended up well off the record exactly around the world and beyond in one of the one of the things I find most interesting in writing about exploration as you get to understand it. There's also exploration that is happening underneath. Everyone's noses all the time like in their mouths. I think what he means is that we can all be citizen. Scientists 'cause there's a lot of ways to contribute to science just by observing interesting things near where we live and we can go to the gutter right outside our house right now or when you're feeling better to find something out of this world finding meteorites is something that most people think is very unlikely and very rare but in fact almost everyone who's listening to us today can go find one right now. Grab a magnet. Go outside your home find a place where the water is funneled off the roof of your home or building hopefully find a place.
Garbage found at the bottom of the Mariana Trench during deepest dive ever
"And a man who just completed the deepest solo dive in human history says he found garbage at the deepest point. On earth.

He made it down to a depth of thirty thirty six thousand feet, and he says he found a lot of new crustaceans new species. But also a lot of trash

Amazing dive, I think almost exactly twelve hours four hours on the bottom Visco encountered translucent creatures some never seen before he also spotted depressingly familiar items, including a plastic bag.
Squeezed Potassium Atoms Straddle Liquid and Solid
"This is scientific Americans sixty seconds sites. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata. There's solid and there's liquid and now there's something inbetween called chain melt, the Tomac level you have this interaction and this mix up between liquids and solids Andreas. Herman is a condensed matter physicist at the university of Edinburgh, what he and his team of discovered using computer simulations is that under certain pressures and temperatures potassium can be both liquid and solid at the same time. Specifically, they squashed simulated potassium atoms with really extreme pressures two hundred four hundred thousand atmospheres, that's at least two hundred times greater than the pressure. In the depths of the Mariana trench at that pressure. The atoms form two interlocking crystal lattices add heat to that you don't need too much. Just a little bit above the boiling point of water in one of those lattices begins to melt while the other remained solid and Walla chain melt the. Sales are in the proceedings of the National Academy of sciences Herman says there's no reason to stop it potassium. Either. Half a dozen other elements have this crystal structure to as for what will do with them. But we haven't relooked by application is quite with untold research.

"I like this shot of the Boko in the water, the best. I think they, I might just be burned my brain because it was in the trailer like they, they just know how visceral that feels the shot of it, like slamming. Yeah, trying to think of something else from the shipwreck. I mean, I like that shot hovering. I mean that that the idea that goes into the Mariana trench and James camera could do a follow up about what's going on down there pies, the shipwreck. I don't know what the boats go. But yeah, I mean he's fighting to get on. I mean, he, he wanted the symptom yet. Hey, it's it's the Simpson baby, David Simpson, David, awesome, some. But yeah, I mean, he doesn't want to get on the lifeboat because he wants to save his family. They throw him in. Yeah, no, I know with Depardieu the sailor, right? And then the animals were get thrown into chaos, and he wakes up in this situation with this collection animals. We're like, this happens very quickly. Is it this fast in the book? Pretty much? Yeah. Okay. No, no. I was just curious if in the book there's more stuff of him with like all the animals. Oh, I guess so. But I think the degradation share happened sort of one right where it's like, and the same idea that like he thinks Parker is gone because he saw Richard Parker in the water. Right? And then there's that moment and it's good in the movie when Richard suddenly leaps out? Yeah, he's been time rags it under the tarp, right? Which is pretty much like, oh, great, train robbery, like direct to camera three d. shot of the tiger leaping at you can make up Black Panther compares. To say that this whole section where you're like, the problem is the hyena is like that waterfall fight in Black Panther retested defend the crown against his back. Oh yeah. Like Jesus Christ fucking. Get worse than this. Exactly. And then you see like. Michael Jordan. Oh, we are wonderful. Yes, I, I love that first waterfall site fight scene in black pepper so much because I, I mean, what my argument for why Black Panther is like a genuine met like it's a masterpiece great move really needs to rewatch is that at the end of the movie when deny Guerrero Gary. Like when he when Kaluga is like you would you would you know patrol attaches defend the French. She says, without question you're like cat because those are the rules of conduct a country. I have no knowledge of that doesn't exist. It's fantasy and like you're so steeped in like all the traditional movies. So two hours later, you're just like, yeah, we have protect this fines. You don't. You know that and like that in Baku got him. And he looks like he's gonna have to kill him when he's got him buckle know at the end of that fight and influence like you, you've done great, but you gotta tap out like this is and you're like, yeah, come on, man. You You got it. got to protect the honor, your tribe did. I didn't know existed by minutes ago. Basically. There's something like very exciting about watching a movie where people are that in love with their country without being zealots. Yes. Just like this countries import means a lot to that. Right. And like a lot of marvel movies are good at that fast world to do, but but Panthers, just especially it's only time they make you actually care about the place because the other ones like, okay, this is a cool place, right? Like garner surfing. I mean, you don't care about it. Not really. I mean, whatever. Also, it's people not a place. Yeah. Well, I actually agree. I disagree with him. Yeah. Pretty cool place. Pretty cool place a force field. But yeah, I mean, this whole survival chunk of the movie. Is if you know the film kind of changes on you in terms of now removing air from con furlong. Yes, exactly. You're alone on the boat with these animals quickly animal, the animals do kill each other pretty fast right behind it kills the other. Right? And that's him trying to figure out how to cohabitate with Richard park with his own. And then it's just them, like, you know, I guess it's like a solid forty minutes.

"Reading today from the. Last hours. Of humanity warming the world's to extinction this is from chapter four It's titled the cloth rate gun deepest place. On earth the deepest part of our oceans as a massive canyon in the west Pacific called the Mariana. Trench more than thirty five, thousand feet deep the pressure of the water is a thousand times that of the surface of the ocean at that depth the normal submarine. With collapsed like a paper bag is very little life there and what does live.
