WIRED Senior Correspondent Adam Rogers Talks about The Mission to Find Ancient Life on Mars
"The place that we landed this month is essentially what they believed to be a dead ocean right a lick a river leading into a lake. It is as researchers said to me not everybody agrees with that but but he said if there's a place that's likely to have the signs that something once lived there. This is that it is. It's a crater that was a the the delta of a river so there was a river that then spread out and came over the sides of these of this can walls and laid sediments down and it's in those kind of sediments that researchers have found the signs of ancient life here on earth and that they hope to find it there in these different colors and layers that they can identify but by texture than by their mineralogical constituent. So adam. What would that science outpost look like on mars. And how how would we build a structure to make it habitable. That's such a cool thing to think about. You'd really you'd like to not have to take everything that you need with you because it's really hard to move things from a gravity well into space costs a lot. Wait is the issue mass. So it'd be really great to be able to use the materials that are there to transform the soil or the rocks. they're into the structure. You can imagine kind of digging down into the ground into the regular. Maybe one of the canyons. Because part of the problem with not having an atmosphere is mars is positively lit up with ionizing radiation like everything from sunburn to cancer. So you wanna be out of that as much as possible be shielded from it be nice to not have to build shielding do it. It'd be nice to have a place where there was already water. There seemed to be places where there's frozen water there now. Those would also be places where there might be living things. You don't wanna mess that up. But if you if there wasn't if they were sterilized but there was liquid water. You could use the ice. That was there. You could use chemical processes to transform carbon dioxide in the regular into oxygen. Potentially that's something that There's instrumentation on perseverance to try to learn how to do. And then all of that would then be studded with with science doing stuff in the same way that like south pole station is or any of the other antarctic stations. That different countries have to study to the weather to study to look outward to have a telescope. there that you could see through thinner atmosphere and not have to deal with bad seeing conditions that happen here on earth you could imagine doing the kind of geological mining for potential resources even again getting them homes difficult it has to be. They have to be so valuable that it's worth sending the rocket and then sending the rock at home somehow. Maybe that's you know. That's possible.

WIRED Senior Correspondent Adam Rogers Talks about the Wild Tech Built into Perseverance
"So adam. Let's start with a couple of notable things about this rover one. It's collecting and to you. Just wrote a story on wired dot com this week about the cameras on perseverance and how they actually perceive imagery much differently than we do. Tell us about this. And why this is significant for this mission will. there's something almost philosophical. You have to address if you're going to send not people to explore another planet but robots which is you're trying to acquire like sensory information and some of that some of that can be quantified can be sent back as data. You know the numbers for certain for certain analyses that you can send an instrument to do and i. I can talk about some of that but some of it. Is you want to send a robot that can look at stuff that can hear stuff in this case they can sense this world. And then that that information through the sensory organs the mechanical sensor organs the technology. That you send the microphones and the cameras and the sensors instruments and then it has to get home has to get back to us somehow. Us not wired reporters but jet propulsion laboratory and then the whole vast team of humans who process all of that through their own machinery and then it becomes something that they can that they can look at. Its this this. Arc of how data becomes information and then becomes knowledge so we humans send these robots to mars to some extent to learn how to send better robots to mars a lot of the instruments on perseverance. That's the rover that's there now are versions of instruments that went up on other missions and now they kind of the scientists that jpl and are all these universities. Nasa know how to make them work to do more what they wanna do which is to look at their surroundings in ways that that we humans would would. Would i be able to identify easily as looking at stuff to to see things in the colors that human is also see we were standing there and also to look at them multispectral hyperspace literally and other parts of the electric spectrum that human i wouldn't perceive but the eyes of this rover is in scare quotes that i'm making on a on a screen even though this audio medium so that's not helpful at all. The eyes of this rover can see into the little bit into the ultraviolet partway into the infrared. And and also can see x-rays and have an are using a laser project light outward to obliterate some bits of rock. And see what what happens when you do it. And to listen with microphones that that might be more sensitive than human ear. Then all of those things get get reduced transformed or changed in some way into meaningful knowledge so that we can understand more about what what's on this other planet where humans have never been but humans have sent a lot of our stuff. You're saying that each brand has gone up tomorrow. At least the ones that we have had progressively better technology on them with each version. And i think it's kind of interesting that this rover that just went up now. Perseverance is essentially the first rover of the iphone era. Curiosity launched in two thousand eleven and it was designed for a period of five or six seven years before that so the imaging technology on it is very representational of like that time in imaging technology the imaging technology that we have now and the imaging technology that we have on. Perseverance is pardon the pun astronomically better than the tech that we had ten years ago. I mean if you think about like how bad your instagram photos. Were in two thousand eleven. And how fantastic they can be now. You can see just like as far as mobile technology goes and just imaging sensors. The leap has been huge. That's a it's a really interesting observation. I think that's right. Although i will also say that like one of the one of the instruments that i wrote about is called the masked kim z. And so it's this. This binocular camera to cameras linked together left and right eye on top of the tower. That's on the rover so sits up a little. Bit high zina's presume because there was a mass cam on curiosity the z. Has zoom capability and it does a bunch of stuff. It's there to identify targets of interesting scientific potentially interesting scientific value and also to be able to look around and navigation and take pictures and do a whole bunch of other stuff. The the ccd the charge coupled device the optical sensor the to in mass are off the shelf kodak cds and they have the they have in front of them the bear pattern of pixels. The probably gonna get this wrong but like the red green blue. I think that that's that would be familiar. That if you if you could look into your phone you would see it. And then mass games does what. The experiment instrument is take advantage of some capabilities that our phone cameras. Don't really do to do much more. Because because the also can see into the infrared a bit and so if you put the right filters in front of them you can do even more science with them so there is some sense that we send up a camera. That would be the same camera that a lot of people have in their pockets right now sitting on their sitting on their desk. I can get sort of derivative about but there's something important i think in the pictures that are starting to come back already. That include parts of the rover itself and people will describe those as celsius as mars selfie camera taking pictures of itself and and nasa among all agencies is very very good at At its own promotional work saying like. Here's the thing. Here's the picture of the thing we're doing. There are pictures. There's video of the landing which was dramatic but also like the video of the landing. Is there to video of the landing has engineering value but also publicity value. But but i think the calling it. A selfie also includes the recognition of the the. It's not personal because of course it's not a person of the machine hood of the individuality of the humanness of the technology that that we sent that has to do a thing there. That's doing technological work and and seeing mars through a kind of filter that's akin to but slightly different than the filters that if mike if you took that billionaire ticket up tomorrow how you would see through the visor of your of your back suit

UN human rights chief raises alarm over ‘systematic crackdown’ in Belarus
"A systematic crackdown against dissents in belarus's continuing months since the country's disputed presidential election last year you and rights chief. Michelle basch has told the human rights council in comments to member states on thursday. The high commissioner for human rights insisted that curbs on demonstrators had got worse. Since last august poll returned president alexander lukashenko to office claims that belarus has rejected those protests led to mass arbitrary arrests and detentions of largely peaceful demonstrators along with hundreds of allegations of torture and ill-treatment ms bachelet explained before noting that not one of the hundreds of complaints. Facts of torture and ill-treatment had been investigated. The commission highlighted concerns about government proposals which would reportedly enable harsher punishments. Those taking part in peaceful demonstrations from now on today nearly two hundred and fifty people have received prison sentences on allegedly politically motivated charges linked to the twenty twenty presidential election.

Biden Orders Broad Supply-Chain Review Amid Chip Shortages
"The biden administration has signed an executive order mandating. A one hundred day review of critical supply chains. Yes some of the concern here is that they want to make sure we never again have shortages of critical things like masks and other p. e. or materials necessary for mass vaccination say pharmaceuticals even food. Basically they want the us to be less. Reliant on overseas sources for critical materials like these but also there's a heavy tech angle here quoting the wall street journal the executive order mandates a one hundred day review of supply chains for four areas. Semiconductors used in products from cars to phones large-capacity batteries use electric vehicles pharmaceuticals and rare earth elements that are key to technology and defense pharmaceuticals and rare earth elements. That are key to technology and defense. The executive order wouldn't fix the near term chip shortage. White house officials acknowledged but the hope is to produce a longer term plan to help the federal government prevent future supply chain problems. They are separately looking for ways to ease the backlog facing us automakers while white house officials said the executive action isn't aimed at one particular country it comes as us interest rises in combating china and fostering ties with other supplier countries. China dominates the rare earths market and is a major player in other supply areas including pharmaceuticals and quote.

What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?
"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since

Thousands In Texas Still Don't Have Power As Lawmakers Investigate ERCOT
"Last week's mass power failure continues, and so does the political fall out. Have been resignations from the body that oversees the grid and lawmakers open their investigations tomorrow. Joining us now is Dominic Anthony Walsh of Texas. Public Radio. Hi there. Hi. First. How's the recovery going? How are people doing? So the majority of the state does have power and water back. But there are still thousands of residents, especially in the Texas Hill country, for example, who don't have power and their electric provider isn't sure when the power will be back. So for thousands of people of this crisis has stretched on for more than a week. And you know bodies are still being found. Local officials are saying it will be weeks till we know the full number of people who died in this disaster, but it's already in the dozens and is expected to climb to well over 100. And these are people who couldn't power medical equipment people who froze to death in their homes or in their cars, as well as people without housing, who froze to death outdoors, experiencing the worst of the conditions. Wow. So in the face of that staggering death toll, the hearings begin tomorrow and the actions of ERCOT, the body that manages the Texas grid are likely to be front and center. What do you expect to come up? Is gonna be a lot. But one key question. Why wasn't the power grid ready? But ERCOT, which again is at the center of all this doesn't actually own the physical infrastructure that provides power. Rather Okay, just oversees the flow of electricity. Here's Peter Crampton, now former member of their cots board. He spoke at his final board meeting earlier today. Cutlets flying a 7 47. It had not one but two engines experience catastrophic failure. And flew the damage playing for 103 hours before safely landing in the Hudson. In my mind the men and women in their car control room here out. So in this analogy, those engines that blew up could be power generating units owned by public and private power companies, not ERCOT again. Haircuts rule was to do an emergency landing. That's the order of so called Syria's of controlled blackouts. So that and even worse crash when it happened like the entire grid going off line, which, according to Urquhart, could take a weeks or months to repair. So far, Kat is likely to argue that they were just doing the best they could with a bad situation. Are there other places Lawmakers might look to hold people accountable. Absolutely. First, there is the Public Utility Commission of Texas. It oversees our cod and has a three member board appointed by Governor Greg Abbott. Second, there's the railroad Commission, which actually oversees the natural gas sector, not railroads and the natural gas sector failed to provide enough power during this crisis. Those two agencies, the Public Utility Commission and the railroad Commission have regulatory power. ERCOT does not. And of course, there is the state Legislature itself, which actually makes the laws that these agencies are supposed to enforce. One proposal mandate that all plants whether as against cold weather, and there's a debate around that who pays for the weatherization taxpayers or the company's And finally, people are already resigning. Tell us about why So Peter, cramped in who we heard earlier, along with a few other board members resigned after taking heat that because they didn't live in the state now did them living out of the state caused these blackouts. No, but Governor Greg Abbott was quick to welcome The news. In the short term market officials will face hearing from the state Legislature tomorrow, and there will be tough questions for them. But again, Ultimately there are other bodies that hold most of the power is actually mandate changes after all of this.

"mass" Discussed on Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe
"We try to explain you everything we do know about the universe and everything we don't know about the universe we bring you to the forefront of size and introduce you to the questions that scientists are asking today the things. That are puzzling physicists. They're making them go. What how does that work. Because we think that everybody deserves to be out there on the forefront of knowledge wondering with the rest of humanity how these amazing and crazy and bloggers universe is put together unraveling that mystery revealing the secrets of the universe to me. Seems like the grand is journey of humanity. And it's amazing that even works that we can apply our minds and figure out the way the universe works and has look out into the cosmos. We see incredible stuff out there. And so our podcast tries to explain to you. What's going on out there in the center of stars around the edge of the black holes in all the tiny little particles and we try to teach you also not just what signs does no but how it knows it because you know there is a pattern in the history of science where we think we know something sort of established wisdom for awhile and then it gets overturned and we discover. Oh the universe is really something different. It works differently from the way that we thought he did. Those are the best moments if you ask me in the history of science when we're peeling back a layer of reality and discovering that the universe is pretty different from the way. Our intuitive experience led us to believe. And so when that happens you have to wonder. Why do we think he'll thing. Why did we get it wrong. So as important sometimes to dig into. How do we know what we know. And that's what we want to talk about on the podcast. Today when we look out at the stars in the sky we see some of them are bright and some of them are dim but when scientists talk about stars. They're often not just talking about how bright they are. They're talking about how big they are. How massive. They are stars with a lot of mass stars with not so much mass black holes with a huge amount of math. But how is it possible to know that so on today's program will be asking the question. How do you measure the mass of a star. And it's not just me as not just you. Who's wondering about this question. We actually got this question from a listener hears dustin. Hi daniel on her. Hey i wonder how physicists. Come up with the weight of planets and stars. Thank you things. Mary much for sending in your question and this is a really interesting really important. Question is not just an academic one because the mass of a star is really important. How much stuff you gathered together to form that burning plasma in the sky determines its fate. Is it going to end up as a white dwarf. Is it going to turn into a neutron star. is it going to collapse into a black hole. All of those who are determined by how much mass it has and so understanding how much mass there is in stars is really important and turns out not that easy but before we dig into how scientists actually do it. Would they do know. And what they don't know about the massive stars. I went out there into the wilds of the internet as people how they thought scientists did it or how they do it themselves. So thank you very much to everybody. Who volunteered their brain to speculate. How to measure the mass as something super-duper far away that you could never hope to touch any of you would like to participate in future baseless speculations for our podcast. Please don't hesitate right into us two questions at daniel. An horray dot com. Here's what people to say. My god says it would be say a we know by how bright it is perhaps is done by measuring the gravitational lensing effect on light passing around the stars possibly with the help of mass spectrometer readings. So you know what elements you have in the star. Then you tried to figure out how much of them you have. I guess the lemnos plays a part in and Probably the or. But i'm not sure to say i don't know i imagine if we can tell the distance to a star we can probably figure out its diameter and from its law light signature. We can tell it's chemical composition and from the brightness of the start self. I would imagine we could tell from the combination of those three things. What the masses somehow back out from that information i love hearing people think on their feet trying to solve this really hard problem from nothing figuring out from scratch and there's a lot of good ideas and there you hear people talking about how you need to know the bath of other stars nearby or maybe you can connected to the brightness and hey they are on the right track so let's talk about how scientists can measure the mass of stars will in general if you're looking at an object in space right all you're getting the light from that object. It's basically impossible to know how big or how massive that object is. remember what mass is. Mass is like how much stuff there is. In a star it affects the stars inertia like how responds to forces and it also affects the stars gravity hard pulls on stuff but none of that can be directly observed from the star itself very easily mostly. That's the effect of other stuff on the star right the inertia or the affected the star on other stuff and so the short answer is is that in general it's impossible to directly measure the mass of an isolated star the same problem when we were measuring the age of isolated stars. For example. right. We talked about how to measure the age of stars and it turns out that you need to do it in big groups because you're seeing how the stars which probably formed together are probably dying together and you can use that as a sort of clock for the population of stars but individual isolated stars. It's very hard to tell how old they are into similar. Problem for measuring their mass. If a stars out there and nothing nearby nothing that can prove its gravity or be influenced by gravity or give it a push or a pull is almost impossible to measure its mass. But that doesn't mean the problem is impossible. What we do in this case is that we find a special category stars where we can figure out how to measure their mass. Because they're near something is something nearby that's tugging on them or they are tugging on. We can measure the mass that sort of special category of stars and then we can try to fill in the gap and figure out a way to extrapolate to all the other stars all right so first. Let's talk about how to measure for a special category of stars where you actually can see them doing some tugging or some pulling where they're mass really is important for what we observe and the most powerful way to do this is to see binary star systems. These are systems where you have to stars nearby and this seems sort of exotic like the counting you might see in star wars with multiple sun's rising over the horizon. And you know. I love that they do that. Because it sort of gives you a sense..

"Throughout the rest of the Twentieth Century, Khalil says that cycle of demonization enforcement and imprisonment reinforced the notion of black criminality and shaped policy. We don't have these conversations about the peculiar -ness of white men who shoot into large crowds of other people. We described them as individuals as lone wolves. It is only black people. That we can categorically whether you are conservative moderate or liberal categorically say these people do this this and this look at what the numbers say. Ultimately, Khalil's argument is that after the thirteenth amendment, the Black Codes and Jim Crow.

"From the Journal, Angle of Louis to the bottom of the chief for vertebral body further separates the media Steinem creating the superior media sign all compartment above this line. However, for practical purposes, the differential diagnosis of masses in the superior compartment is very similar to that of the anterior compartment. So often the two compartments are considered together for the rest of this video, I will be referring to the three compartment model for simplicity about half of all media sign, all masses are anterior with the rest about evenly divided into the middle and post your your compartments. Normally. The Anterior Media Steinem does not contain many structures mostly pre cardiac, fat lymphatic tissue and the finest gland, or it's reminiscent yet the majority media final masses are found in this compartment. Long Way to remember the differential of anterior media style masses is the pneumonic the forties. The four are thymus. Thyroid territory and terrible lymphoma. Each of the teas is a reminder of the kind of pathology that can present as anterior media, cheinal masses, lesions of the sinus include benign and malignant melanoma. SIMEK CARCINOMA and. Dynamic cysts. Thyroid lesions in this region are most commonly benign thyroid goitres that have extended inferior -ly from the neck but thyroid cancers may also rarely be present territory us our type of germ cell tumor that feature all three layers of embryonic development including the endo derm, Mizuho, derm and older, and these masses may reduce hair bone cartilage or even teeth in addition to territory is any other type of germ cell tumor may be found in the anterior media steinem including seminars, a non seminole, Mattis germ cell tumors, lastly, lymphomas. Part of the differential most commonly Hodgkin's lymphoma though non-hodgkin's varieties are frequently seen as well. Other less common and tear media sign all masses are abnormally located parathyroid glands and pericardial cysts. Middle Media Sino masses are less common occurring about half as often as anterior masses more structures exist within the middle. Media Steinem. So the differential is not a straightforward in general though the major Middle Media Stein all structures can be broken down into the against the airway and cardiovascular structures both benign and malignant esophageal disease can present as Middle Media Sino masses though. Not Large, enough to be detected on chest x ray though not often thought of as a mass esophageal hiatus Hernias are quite common and can present as widening of the media Steinem and initially be confused for a media spinal tumor in the Airway Bronco. JENEX. Cysts are the most common lesion but benign and malignant neoplasms occurs while including central Bronco Genyk Carcinomas, cardiovascular structures especially, a work dissections or aneurysms must be ruled out. A. Middle Media Sign. Alas. Lastly, enlarged lymph nodes either from benign reaction or granular material disease or from malignant metastasis are a common cause of middle media Sino mass. The differential for post earier media sign all masses simpler. These masses are neurogenic tumors until proven otherwise among the mirror genyk tumors, the site of origin can be broken down into nerve. Para, Ganglia Nick and gangly onic. Each of these sites can be further broken down into a variety of benign and malignant tumors. But one that should always be kept in mind is an extra adrenal feel chroma Saitama.

You speak with a radiologist who confirms your suspicions that your patient has widened media, Steinem and Our probable media Stein, all mass, what is the differential diagnosis of this x Ray?

A great deal of anatomy is found in this limited space, and so the list of structures that can give rise to abnormalities in this region is long and buried in order to help organize.

One of the most commonly used systems is the three compartment model which divides the media Stidham into anterior middle and post earier compartments.

Mass Incarceration James Foreman's locking up our own, which he's a former public defender, and now professor gale writing about Washington DC great sort of inside look into the politics. Of Law and order that sort of gave rise to what we have. Another great book that I recommend is would fox. Who spent many many years behind bars his book called solitary, a terrific and gripping read, and you mentioned David Duval Thirteenth which is an excellent documentary about the rise of mass incarceration, and I highly suggest for folks to have a movie night. Night and watch thirteenth with your friends, your family and have a conversation about it second you can get involved in in very concrete ways, and it doesn't require you giving up your day job and becoming a full-time advocate or activists in November there will be hundreds of prosecutor races that are on the ballot and get to know your local prosecutor. Get to know. Know what their policies are. What are you going to do about charging? What are you going to do about bail? How are you going to handle? Plea bargaining and make sure that when they say that they are progressive, because that is the moniker that many people are using when it comes to criminal justice reform right now. Make sure that actually has meaning, are they? They willing to make their data transparent of how they make decisions about charging. Are they willing to come to town halls and meet with community members and here? What did they want to see from their local prosecutor? Those are all very concrete ways in which you as a person can change the face of your local criminal justice system for blisters who don't think. Think of themselves as progressive I think we might even have a few conservative listeners to the show. Is something different that you would encourage them to do? Yes, absolutely so I would encourage them to think about what conservative means when it comes to the criminal justice system, because there's actually many conservative organizations and officials who agree with me and I m most definitely not. Not Somebody of the conservative elk, but who agree with me that mass incarceration as we know, it should change, and they agreed that prosecutors should rely on incarceration lasts and consider alternatives to incarceration. One other concrete thing that people can do if they have the ability to do so is, you can contribute very concretely to getting people out of jail there are. Are community bail funds all across the country. There's over fifty of them and people are raising money to bail people out of jail, because oftentimes people are there on two hundred and fifty dollars, five hundred dollars, and they just can't afford the price of their freedom, and especially in this moment where we have seen increased immigration detention immigration enforcement despite the pandemic there. There several immigration bond funds across the country that are helping to bail people out of immigration detention. It's not necessarily systemic change, but it is a very obvious way to make a difference and to help in this moment to actually get down from two point three million in jeff thanks so much for joining us on solvable.

"The killing of George Floyd has brought calls for transforming policing into the national spotlight. The so many people taking to the streets demanding action now we have to maintain our confidence that even the hardest problems related to racial justice can be solved. How do you break this problem? Down into solvable pieces decide to stop prosecuting and charging low level crimes. Don't criminalize those behaviors. Justice isn't blind. We have to be far more critical and thoughtful and hats that lens out. Today, we're going to talk about how to solve mass incarceration. This is such a solvable problem. In show Rochman used to work as a public defender in the Bronx. That job illuminated for her. The variety of state national level problems with the criminal justice system. The US has five percent of the world's population, but currently holds twenty five percent of the world's incarcerated people. Rochman is a director of strategy new initiatives at the Vera Institute. An organization devoted to improving the criminal justice system in the United States. Rochman thinks those extremely disproportionate numbers represent a problem we can solve. In Gem so excited to talk to you today about this. Because mass incarceration is something I. Think a lot about and I know. A lot of our listeners are super interested in I. Wonder How you define the problem as something we can solve yet. We have two point three million people behind bars today that's <hes>, seven hundred and fifty thousand people in jails, and another one point five million in prisons, and it's actually solvable, so. So! What's your plausible goal to get it down from two point three million, you said in jails and prison to what number if we just look at the average incarceration rate across the rest of the world, and if America word incarcerate at that rate, we would get down from two point three million to three, hundred, sixty thousand. That's something like doing the math head of factor seven yet. That's a remarkable number when you think about. And that's what we could and should and can actually do if we decide to do business differently from the beginning of the system to the end interest since George Floyd's killing, we've been in the midst of a national even international movement against police violence and for racial justice to change the opportunity around the incarceration. It does but only if we make enough of this moment and one thing that I wanNA point out. Is that for many of us? It feels like a moment of opportunity to make sure that the path we walked to get here with the criminal justice system that we have the path moving forward is the same, but we have to also stop acknowledge the moment of incredible pain and hurt and harm that has happened that it took the. Senseless and ruthless killing of a black man. Police officer with his NITA, his neck <hes> for the country to actually realize what actually happens with impunity each and every day in this country, and it's not just A. Crisis of now, but it's a crisis that's been here literally since slavery, So yes, there is opportunity, but we actually won't make enough of the opportunity if we don't recognize the long history and roots that got us to this place where we all feel like it's not only crisis, but a moment of hope <hes>, but it really is a moment of crisis, and we have to lean into that first before we think about the opportunity in the moment.

Mass gatherings SORTA BE PAROCHIAL AUTO PEOPLE. Who listen to us from overseas but which has had a music festival in Victoria in Regional Victoria. That's some state here and somebody's compulsive twelve thousand. People were at that. So what do you do with the twelve thousand people? We've got a situation where the government has just said the other day that we're going to spend two point four billion on various things about testing and fever clinics. And what have you and yet? There are proudly continuing with the Australian Grand Prix which we record people are going to turn up. And our prime minister proudly said he's turning up to his football match to watch Cornell You know basically the sharks played the rabbitohs where maybe forty or sixty thousand people are going to turn up and thinks that's fine and the answer is if you were to ask an Italian in northern Italy when you were at one hundred and fifty cases in Italy. What would you wish you'd done and what would you think? If the Italian Grand Prix had gone ahead and various. Prove all matches would you? Would you actually have canceled? What do you think? The answer's going to be. It is outrageous that we're building. Yeah again Things that are basically were spending money on ambulance of the bottom of the cliff and we're not building the fence and our governments are losing credibility. Because they're doing stupid stuff cypher. Individuals don't wait till the government cancelled things. Just stay home stay home. Bobby should be canceling things because we will pay the price of it.

Well I think that's an open question and I don't know enough about the Tom Hanks. Case he's been here for a while filming. Apparently but I think he's also going back to the United States I think given the prevalence of covered nineteen in Queensland on the Gold Coast. It's more likely if he has been he hasn't been back to. America is caught it in California and brought it back here But it's still possible. He's caught it here because it is spreading in Australia and we have had important cases into the Gold Coast. Who knows yet? He's probably going to be okay. I'm not sure what ag he is but he's pretty fit the. I'm not sure but people on the set because they're no they're no context. You'RE GONNA have to do with isolated famine. I googled it before he sixty three sixty three child and the child so the World Health Organization's now calling a pandemic. They've kind of come out on that. Does that change anything for us? No it's just a name. It doesn't change anything for anybody. We called it out a couple of weeks ago and it's been a pandemic for quite some time and who was late to the party as they often are. Let's talk about common respiratory illnesses? Because this is something that we hear. It makes people at higher risk of complications. What about something like Asmaa? Well as smart if you get a lung infection chest infection you've got asthma. Asthma can make things worse but in other words the lung infection can bring on a bad asthma attack and your and your your compromise because of the asthma and therefore if you've got asthma and it's purely treated and you know it's pretty treated if you're sucking on Veselin or the blue puffer so beautiful too much you know two or three times a day if you're using your blue puffer that suggests that you're not under control if you're waking up during the night.

We don't move like that at all but anyway you get the idea dance fever but did you know that there's an actual dance fever that got people sick from between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. It's called dancing. Mania and there are several reported cases of it throughout history. What happens is that one person starts dancing somewhere out in public no music and then one by one other people start joining them in the street. You get kind of called the original flash mob accept. These dances were completely unreversed and they went on for days weeks and even months at a time by all accounts the dancers appeared totally powerless to stop many literally danced until they dropped. Ed One famous case a woman in Strasbourg. France began dancing in the street for hours on end and within a week thirty people had joined her. The one month later there were over two hundred people dancing nonstop in the city centre town officials try different strategies to cure the dancing mania and even brought in musicians and professional dancers to perform alongside the mob. Hoping that they simply needed to dance it out not so in fact. The music only made more people join in. Historians have long struggled to explain the cause of dancing mania. Some theories include religious fervor poisoning Tarantula stress and a curse sent down from Saint Vitus. The patron saint of Dancers. None have been proven definitively. None Time Nice work. Lisa thank you thank you brandon. What did you think of? That story LIES HUNG IN CHURCHES BELIEVABLE. But it may be believable because some things that are crazy are trail interesting to let. I am telling the truth than I am trustworthy. Well before we go accusing Deborah of being a liar. Let's at least hear her story. I yeah my true story. Shayla Brandon listen up carefully. Deborah your timer will begin. Halloween is many people's favourite holiday. And for good reason. Free Candy silly costumes and let's face it. You don't really do anything in school that day. Some of US wish every day could be Halloween well in Carthage Missouri in Nineteen Ninety. Four One. Ten year old kid. Try to make it so that year for Halloween for niece lyles dressed as traffic on Aka the Yellow Ranger from the TV. Show mighty morphin power rangers who in November? I rolled around and Oliver classmates returned to school in their regular clothes. Bernice came still dressed as a power ranger when her teachers told her to change. She pointed to a clause in the school handbook. That said that students could wear whatever they liked as long as it didn't display bad words or anti-establishment propaganda on her walk home from school. She figured people would still have some leftover treats so Bernice wet trick or treating for a second time. I got more candy in one hour. Then she'd gotten the entire night before inspired by for example. Five classmates wore their Halloween costumes to school the next day and much to the dismay of school administrators twenty-seven more kids did so the next week as Bernice campaign dubbed the Halloween Forever Movement gained national attention for TV news program. Sixty minutes came to carthage to interview. The kids refused to take off their costumes. What Costume Bernice shot back at the interviewer? I really am a power ranger. You're the one who's in a costume boring reporter guide here. Having Pizza Candy in early December Carthage Middle School changed. Its official rules to ban costumes except on October. Thirty FIRST AT EACH YEAR. Bernice now has a plaque dedicated to her in the National Halloween Museum in Washington. Dc hand time. Good Work Deborah. Yes thank you Brandon Shale. What did you think of that story? Would you want to join the Halloween forever movement? Probably NOT YEAH. Because some like costumes can be uncuffed knowing I Dressed as link from Russell wild cool and the pants were so short. Cut off the circulation of my feet out. So you don't think you'd WanNa wear that to school for a whole month. No okay. It is decision time now. Our contestants must decide who story has mass appeal. Do you believe in Lisa's tale of dancing mania. The Mijo mysterious disease that causes hundreds of people dance uncontrollably for weeks on end or Deborah's tale of the Halloween forever movement. I do and the kid who convinced her whole middle school to wear their costumes for a month.

It was great into mass hysteria. A psychological phenomenon phenomenon are you. I was watching TV. Fox I carry on. Which has been documented since the Middle Ages political turmoil of environmental stress? Fear of the unknown and the need for social acceptance from our peers can often cause us to behave in irrational manner and throughout history close-knit groups such as schools. Small communities have experienced inexplicable episodes of mass hysteria. And that is tonight's strange topic mother. Have you ever witnessed mass hysteria? I can't say I have. I've seen like like three girls. Go fucking crazy is that mass can three count as a mess. Watch this show education on Netflix. And it season two in the first episode there.

Uncontrollable hysteria lasted for a few hours to to actually then it went on to two weeks. That's a fun one though. That's not working is not gonNA changed from it.

But you're actually like the Toronto. Yeah yeah sure you're right. You're fucking right about that. Fuck your good teachers. Were unable to conduct lessons with bouts of hysterical laughing so the teachers like so today in trigonometry and the school was forced to shut down for two fucking months while the epidemic was brought under brought to under control whoever this dearly spread to surrounding villages. Yeah that's Africa to a number of surrounding schools. Altogether over a thousand people were affected. Well yeah it's kind of like a domino to stop laughing soon as everyone else keeps going right soon as you hear someone laughing it's it's hard not to fund the odd one out.

"mass" Discussed on Surgery 101
"Differential diagnosis. Okay so what could it be. Let's think congenital infectious or neoplastic. For Congenital amasses. The main thing that matters is where the mass is located in the middle or off to one side I mid line neck masses include Thorough Gospel Texas ex topics every tissue find exist. During Loyd's his third Thomas and punching granular lateral neck masses include Branko cleft crept anomalies then that's their mouth formations. External Lingo Seals End Stern Oklahoma mastery tubers they're also more extensive neck masses including Benjamin Human Eamon Julia's but these are less common. It is also important to consider inflammatory. NEOPLASTIC causes in a pediatric population in story causes masses are more common than congenital inflammatory causes including such as lymphatic apathy to viral or bacterial onus infiltrated diseases. Such a sarcoidosis Denied United States or Daniela's neoplastic causes are less likely in children than in adults Elim famous by comas out. An CARCINOMAS and other primary local had in that cancer search should be ruled out. The most common congenital midlife. Mass is a thyroid also accessed while the most common. Lateral Congenital McMaster. Children is a bronchial cleft cyst. Let's look at fire lawsuit would access I. Could it be that pathophysiology. During the third week of station at every take Ulum or mid line division is formed at the back of the tongue called the form and seek him as the fetus developed. The thyroid gland is formed. From this is particularly and descends in the mid line of the neck. As attractive to call the Farrell Gloss Tracked to the lower part of the neck over the first few tracheal rings by five to eight weeks of just station. This track normally obliterates and separates the thyroid into two lobes if this track does not disappear. It's remnants including thyroid tissue can be found at any point between the tongue and the firearm when the remnants expand to form a fluid filled cyst this is called a fiberglass with duct cyst. How does this present children and young adults in their twenties commonly present with with a non tender and mobile mid line neck mass? It's otherwise not usually associated with any symptoms if infected these masses can be associated with dysphasia Asia. This phone yeah. Draining sinuses fever or increasing neck mass lies airway obstruction is also possible. Most often sister found and act or just below the bone and are within two centimeters of the mid line and identifying characteristic is the elevation of the cyst with swallowing or tongue jusin how how do we diagnose this. The initial imaging modality of choice for suspected. theraflu is ultrasound to distinguish between solid and cystic components. Ultrasound commutes identify characteristic features including on regular shape poorly defined margin hide Brown attachment and heterogeneous internal exigency if diagnosis remains unclear. Cat Scans can also be helpful in displaying the characteristic two to four centimeter in diameter. Well circumscribed cystic lesion. With a capsule or enhanced isn't official. Graham or may also be ordered in the workup in our case. This diagnosis is less likely. Given the location of the mass the differential for mid line neck mass is is very similar but may include less than emphasis on inflammatory conditions such as cervical on notice or other causes of Linfen novelty which caused more lateral next swelling. What are the treatment options options the preferred treatment for if I were also duct cysts is surgical removal with the strunk operation? Prior to excision thyroid. Ultrasound should be ordered. Two topics thyroid very glad to prevent removal during the procedure and preserves I would function in the patient in the past simple incision and drainage would have thyroid Gloucester docks this recurrence rates around fifty percent. This is strong. Procedure was implemented almost a century ago and involves an unblock reception of the track and of a section of the highway bone which has decreased recurrence to around five percent duct. Cysts should be sent to pathology for his logic examination to rule out malignancy overall. The strong surgery offers an excellent born curious back to the case. Okay that's all very interesting but let's take a break and go back to sally remember. We said her mass was on one side. That doesn't sound much like a thyroid also duct cyst. It sounds a lot more like a bronchial cleft. Cyst Sally's mass sounds like has been there from birth and has become infected in the past best which explains the associated pain dysphasia that she and her mom mention. So what do we need to do for Sally. Let's look at bronchial cleft cysts in more detail pathophysiology embryology bronchial cleft anomalies are wide net group of disorders that include cysts sinuses and Fistulas put simply employee bronchial cleft cysts are closed sack-like pockets of tissue that may accumulate with fluid pus or other material follow genetically the Branko Arches are related pitched the Gill slits officials have and these begin to develop in humans around the fourth week of life and start in the looting around the seventh week. Frank you'll old nominees form when there's incomplete Humans riveted from their first second third fourth and Sixth Branko Arches with Associated Echo. DERM missile derm an endothermic doc derivatives for each alongside vascular nerves and cartilage. We won't go into the specifics of each Branko arch conservative but it is important to know that the second Branko Arch is often called the high arch at an includes the facial nerve status stylized process part of the high bone and Super Consular pilch which how do patients with bronchial cleft cysts present many people with Prankul cliffs maybe a symptomatic for the majority of their life and may not present until there's a superimposed infection That causes pain or discomfort. If the Branko clusters does increase in size or start. Swelling mass effect can cause symptoms such as dysphasia dysplasia and strider strider. You should be suspicious of Brian. Closest if patients mentioned a lateral neck mass along the anterior border of the Stern accardo mastered. That occasionally fluctuates actuates. Inside this is very similar to Sally's case the Second Break Arches derivatives are important to keep in mind do this being where the vast majority of Branko abnormalities. He's occur as the second bring killed pouch causes the Super Consular Pouch Second Kill Arch fistulas truck externally from the journal Clyde mastery to the tonsils internally molly. What about the diagnosis? If a Branko cleft anomalies acted as in Sally's case C.. T. Imaging contrast is indicated. Mr Is and Marincos. GOPI may also be helpful for surgical planning. The recommended treatment for Classes is surgical excision patients should be reassured that the sister benign but potential complications including obsess formation reoccurring fluid accumulation and damage to surrounding structures may occur any acute infections. abscesses should be treated prior to surgical excision as this may cause increased recurrence due to inflammation treatment is usually not recommended until children are three months of age and a series of horizontal orthodontal. incisions are made along the neck until the entire course of this can be removed. Essentially the treatment that was offered to sally after surgeon had a long discussion in with Sally and her parents regarding the Benefits of Surgery Valley underwent accession without any complications in summary. Congenital neck masses are common pathology encountered infants and children. The most common congenital causes a lateral neck. Mass is a cleft anomaly. While the most common mid line neck mass is in a child is a thyroid exist he's neck masses presents in children teens and young adults as fluctuating masses that can become inflamed and infected location and fluctuating. Course are key characteristics to keep in mind in your assessment a thyroid Gospel duct cyst has the potential the cause recurrent infections and rarely can contain cancer therefore thorough also duct cysts recommended to be excited surgically using the strunk operation Shen which involves removal of the cyst and it's track. BRACCO clubs are most commonly from the second regular arch and are benign surgical. Excision is the definitive native treatment. Once infection has been properly treated medically and is recommended to prevent recurrent infections.

I told you that a couple of weeks ago and i just now have set up my commitment to record and now i'm going to be faithful and dedicated to actually recording radio shows for you guys to listen to you and argue with me about okay so if you have any questions you can head over to facebook and i'll type in devi marquee. You can argue with me there <hes> you you can follow me on instagram at marquee davis one also twitter marquee a davis one and you can argue with me on any opinion that i have on this show that you do. I'm not think is right okay so let's start the one thing i do want to talk about. Are these mass shootings now. You're thinking houses affect me as a veteran or other person or civilian well. It's simple you know <hes>. These mass shootings happened in places where people would not have expected it. They were just chilling during a normal life routine and then next thing you know someone is opening fire killing people. Let's look at <hes> two thousand sixteen june twelve when forty nine people were killed and the pulse nightclub in orlando. They're in. They're just having a gale time laughing it up dancing drinking and dan and omar mateen twenty nine years old came in and shot him up less look at the recent one ought to happen in el paso <hes> what happened there there were also get. Let's look at the vegas nightclub one so in las vegas <hes> stephan paddock. He came in and started shooting and a crowd of twenty in two thousand people who were therefore concert now. Let's think about this okay. So why am i talking about this well as a lot of people when these occur who were very upset and very vocal about the <hes> second amendment and the right to bear arms <hes> i'm not against that i believe everyone in america's should have a firearm. You know i mean it's protection. If you know how to use it and you legally attained it and you you keep it safe yes. You should have a firearm as many as you want. That's my stance on it okay but i'm also against having firearms at do such massive damage like <hes> i know people say oh well. All firearms do a lot of damage. Oh my god what are you talking about. I understand that but but i'm talking about a semiautomatic ak forty seven or a semiautomatic r. m. four type rifle carbine rifle <hes>. What are we shooting at that. We need that many rounds to take down. That's what i'm trying to figure out so even if you use it for hunting. What are we the hunting bright that requires me to us. Thirty rounds to shoot at bears. Are we hunting bears. I mean and then people who hunt bears don't relatively us they don't they will not use carbine weapon or ak forty. Seven hundred bear not gonna you something a lot more powerful. That's going to be single shot bolt fed. That's gonna take bear down as not going to be hader air. Tommy does a bear. Let me just unload all of my ammo onto this bear ni- gonna happen not going to happen people. I'm sorry it's just not going to have their funding shoe you no we shot them all every every single one of the veteran here or active duty who's listening to the sound of my voice from this station or podcast. You have shot arrival and you have enjoyed it. I mean it's fun. It really is fun to fill the power and the and the deadly devastation that it can bring when you shoot a weapon and i'm not against people owning him. I'm just trying to figure out why do you need it. If you want to bring up the hunting or you wanna bring up self-defense. It's okay but can't you get the same amount of of self defending power from a pistol or small-calibre <hes> <hes> you know sidearm. Why do we have to have a a._k._47. Debt if you know how to you can make it into a fully automatic weapon happen because you know here in america. You can't buy fully automatic weapons but even if i have a import car bond you know just a regular carbon repin. I i can squeeze that trigger extremely fast to make it seem like that's about the be <hes> automatic weapon or three round bursts or something like that you know <hes>. It's just <hes> kind of bewildering to me. It's kinda weird that people are so upset that we <hes> a lot of people in the united states warrant a little bit more stringent background check. That's it. That's all i've been really hearing. I mean other than the lunatics on on the left on the left hand side who wants to completely ban all weapons. We see how that worked out in britain right. They just had a guy just going damn killing spree with a knife. He just went on a killing spree with a knife. Let me look this up. Real quick so that i can put this into context for you <hes> because let let me see do came ninth mass murder. Let's see what is said. Okay here. We august seventh two thousand nine all right two thousand nineteen two thousand nineteen. I do apologize apologize <hes> whereas story so some do apparently went on a crazy killing spree what a knife an and <hes> the u._k. And i'm trying to find a story is this from the national review and they have a whole bunch of filler in here like okay. I'm trying to find a knife. I'm not trying to talk about explosive explosive mass murderers that happened in manchester. No no no no do a quick rank what journal school the journalist school are these people going to what you have to write so much bull crap. Just tell the story. I mean walter conkrite what he would do. He would just get on news and he would just tell you <hes> today. The president got killed boom that we go whether that filler bs so. I'm not reading that stupid store because it's just too much and i i don't care right now so but but let's get back to the point here so when you look at these mass murders people also so comparing them to the murders that are happening in chicago so let's think of it. This way okay murder with any any weapon is wrong k. I mean i'm talking about cold. Blooded murder not not not self defense but cold blooded murder is wrong okay. I'm pretty much every religion in the world. Dow <hes> the decrees that murder is bad and you'll go to hell or your go to whatever the bad place is that our religion believes in if you commit murder because there's not a human's place to take another human life that is the realm of the gods all right so murders back. We got death.

"And other things you just like accent? They're suffering. They're dying right now. And I wanted to bring attention to that was their next. We'll change to your muscle mass. No, so yes. So what I was looking for was changing my muscle mass. And I was always also looking for change in the DNA. There's this technique where you can extract the DNA and amplifies the region and sequence it. And hopefully, see changes in the the region that that you attended to modify is very difficult because a lot of cells and getting you know, the cells that could have been modified, you know, who knows if they're what what's going on. I didn't see any significant change in my muscle. And when I tried to do these DNA analysis, they're pretty inconclusive the method. I used was called a tide. I think and what the preliminary results were looking like was like from non modified tissue. I was seeing changes and modified tissues. So I was just like. This isn't really a conclusive way to measure it. And so I kind of figured out like back to the drawing board like what what can I do to make this experiment, more robust, and and things like that. And it led me to figuring out how the test these things better and that led me to creating these frog kit. If you're mentioned with animals because you can't test a lot of things on yourself. Right. Like, I can't Jack myself with crisper every other week and try to figure out like is it gonna work is it not gonna work. It's it's it's it's not a good way to live your life or do science. You. You also suffer from your Val syndrome and gauging experiment to rebuild your microbiome by transplanting, a friends microbiome. What exactly did you do? Oh, yes. No. That was that was really interesting. That was a couple years ago. And what happened was I suffered from, you know, gastrointestinal issues for my whole life, especially while working at NASA. I don't know if there's something in the air. They're the cafeteria, but really got me, but is hard because like. You couldn't I couldn't go into work. Sometimes right because I'd have to go to the bathroom so many times in a day. It's just it's it's very harmful to living normal life and just trying to just trying to go to work and a lot of people suffer from these issues and traditionally doing fecal transplants has been something that people participate in DIY way in the US. It's currently outlawed. It's illegal for a doctor to prescribe you a fecal transplant for anything other than antibiotic resistant cost him defeat so infections. That's the only thing. People transplants can be used for now and other countries in UK and other places in the world. They do actually have clinics that provide fecal transplants for people, but you. Not really so. And we search on how these transplants treat IBS IBD in other guests intestinal illnesses at the time. There wasn't a lot of stuff out there. And I thought well, this is a great opportunity for me what I can do is. I can try to take somebody who's healthy who has healthy gut. If I could transplant microbiome to my body and see how it actually like what happens doesn't work. How's it makes me feel and all this stuff? So I did a procedure where I performed transplant and took like seventy different samples, you know before. And after the experiment and different samples all over my body and my environment look at how things change and also documented a lot of different health and wellness thing my way sexual veto how I fell. How I, you know, took like mental health tests to see like how stealing and at the end of the experiment after I did this transplant the DNA sequencing show that it was actually successful. I had read how nice guestroom pestle track with the bacteria from the healthy donor, and my guests intestinal track health like the way I felt did improve drastically at at that time..

"To all of these media commentators and journalists referring back to columbine as this watershed moment when we were all forced to grapple with liz american problem of mass shootings and another thing is interesting that i found that this term mass shooting didn't exist before columbine mean we had of course events that we would now call mass shootings but we didn't call the mass shootings so this term mass shooting emerged with columbine and that's part of why it was so influential that we created this umbrella term for us to understand this very specific type of violence right now i actually did read the book columbine minutes it's excellent everyone's you read that book crayon i think the the real reasons he calls out in great detail the real reasons behind why why they did this and one of them was i think one of the shooter's was suffering from clinical depression whose quite depressed and the other one i think was it in a few if he was diagnosed in retrospect or posthumously but he was a a narcissist associate at yeah sociopath yeah no no i mean those things go handinhand biya right so is this the first time that the media started to kind of developed this mythology around crimes like this like crafting this kind of novelist narrative yeah i think so i think obama's the moment where that really happened it was this watershed moment for american culture where we all had to sort of we had to create this myth around smash shootings in and we had to come up with a way to explain it because of course as a sort of suburban and white form of violence it was this type of violence that required an explanation in a way that urban violence doesn't in the mass media that we we don't feel compelled to search for answers right if if someone is killed in an urban context or someone who's nonwhite as murdered but when it's this sort of surprising and i'm putting this in air quotes context of like a high school where you know this violence is shocking than were forced to craft these cultural narratives that makes sense of.
