The Denisovans Expand Their Range Into China

"Like modern humans than neanderthals roamed widely throughout europe. We know this because they left behind. Extensive evidence usually bones or tools but their cousins. The denisovans our more mysterious until recently they were conclusively linked only to a single cave in southern siberia called denisova cave which lies between kazakhstan and mongolia in that cave. Scientists had found a finger bone three teeth and piece of skull which tip them off to the existence of a whole new lineage of ancient human now scientists have uncovered more of the range for the denisovans says de endo mossy lonnie of the max planck institute in germany. His team turned up evidence. The ancient humans occupied a high mountain cave on the tibetan plateau. Called by shia cave belongs to monks and -mongst things that it's a very holy place in fact among found a piece of jawbone there in nineteen eighty which has been tenuously linked to the denisovans salani and his team have now unearthed more conclusive evidence by sifting through cave sediments and sequencing the genetic evidence. The denisovans left behind. Buddy decay of people chests. Gabbing down the side like bleeding. There are coping ping could left their dna. The dna appears in layers suggesting the denisovans inhabited the cave as far back as one hundred thousand years ago as well as at sixty thousand years ago and perhaps even as recently as forty five thousand years ago meaning. The denisovans might overlapped in this region with modern humans. The results appear in the journal. Science mossy lonnie says. This method could enable more denise in detective work to this like so many caves when we have evidence of human activity but we don't have opening remain so if he can exploit to sediment can actually start to track down in segment. The denisova dini denise evans live on today in the genomes of some modern day humans from the south pacific further. Genetic work like this might give scientists more clues where early homo sapiens. I met and mixed with the elusive denisovans.

What's the Largest Lake in the World?

What's the Largest Lake in the World?

"Siberia's Lake Cal is not your average. Lake. At forty, nine miles wide by three hundred and ninety, five miles long that seventy, nine by six, hundred and thirty, five kilometers. It's the world's largest freshwater lake and with history that dates back twenty, five, million years it's also Earth's oldest. But size and age aren't the only things that make this. Lake. Special. Lake by cow is also home to more than three thousand, seven, hundred different species, many of which are only found in the Baikal region. That's why by cows often considered the Galapagos of Russia. No in case it's bio-diversity doesn't dazzle you here's another but Julia fact. Lake by cow has its own version of the Loch ness monster. Its name translates to water dragon master and it's described as a giant sturgeon with a prominent stout, an armored plating along the back. The monsters history goes back centuries with ancient carvings depicting this terrifying creature. Interest peaked we thought. So here's a starter guide to this ancient beautiful and mysterious late, which is by the way a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lake Baikal is located in southern Russia near the border of Mongolia, its depth of five thousand, three, hundred feet about one thousand, six, hundred meters makes it the world's deepest lake about five hundred feet or two hundred meters it's also famous for its clarity of water and ice. When the lake is frozen, you can see dozens of meters or hundreds of feet down. And as we said at the top, it's also the world's largest lake that size twelve, thousand, two, hundred, square miles, or thirty one, thousand, six, hundred square kilometers makes it comparable in volume to the entire Amazon Basin? A first scale? It reportedly takes about three hundred and thirty years for single water molecule to flow from inlet to inlet. So. How did like by cow get so massive About twenty, five, million ago lake by CAL formed through fractures and shifting within Earth's crust. It wasn't Lake Baikal as we know it. Now, though experts believe it was a series of lakes similar to the Great Lakes in the United States while scientists aren't positive how lake by CAL went for many lakes to the behemoth. It is today they do have theories. It could have been sinking earth erosion earthquakes or increased water from melting glaciers although it's likely a mix of these factors and more. That unifying change took place in the pleasing epoch about five point three to two point five million years ago. But this lake isn't finished growing. It's expanding at a rate of about point seven inches to centimeters every year at the same speed at which Africa in South America are drifting apart. At this speed, some scientists believe lake by Baikal is actually an ocean in the making. The lake boasts twenty-seven islands, the largest of which spans two, hundred, eighty square miles or seven, hundred, twenty, five square kilometers and has its own lake mountains and the population of fifteen hundred residents. The locals connected to power van underwater cable in two, thousand and five, and we're connected to the Internet shortly after. Some Call Lake by Cao, the Galapagos of Russia not only because it has an impressive array of those nearly four thousand species but also because eighty percent of those animals are found nowhere else. One reason for this unique biodiversity is the lakes. Array of hydrothermal vents which are commonly found in oceans but lake by cow is the only freshwater lake known to have them. Cold water from the lake enters cracks in the Earth's crust through these hydrothermal vents. When the water reaches magma, it heats up, then returns resurfacing with minerals and heat. These rich minerals are probably the reason some of the lakes most unusual species were able to develop including several unique fish and the nerpa seal species, which is the only exclusively freshwater seal species in the world and its evolution is mysterious and some scientists believe it arrived by a prehistoric river from the Arctic But beyond seals fish other common animals found in the forests and mountains surrounding Lake Baikal include. Elk. Reindeer links wild-boar, and of course, the lakes frequently reported water dragon master. And this ancient lake has another air of mystery about it. UFO sightings. Many locals have reported strange lights and alien spacecraft throughout the years and several Soviet era documents mention ufo instance in sightings around Earth's largest lake. However for all of its natural wonder, amazing wildlife end stranger sides for lake cows one hundred, thousand permanent residents it's simply home. Made, occupations are forestry agriculture, fisheries, hunting, and tourism though that's currently on hold due to covid nineteen. Here's hoping they opened back up soon.

Time Is Money? by Chris Guillebeau on Productivity & The Inherent Value of Enjoying Life

"But for now, let's get right to our post for today as we optimize your life. Soon Time is money by Chris Kilo of Chris. Globo DOT com. I came back into Seattle last night after two weeks traveling around the world in the morning, I went up to my local starbucks on forty fifth street in Wallingford, these corporate guys were sitting there, wearing suits and carrying briefcases in Seattle. You don't see people dressed like that as much as you do. In other cities over here. A shirt with a collar is considered dressing up. As they were talking. One of them said well, we should go. Time is money. I looked up from my nearby table. Time is money Have, you heard that one before hold on, we'll come back to it I think about something. Amazon.com has at least two hundred seventy books on time management, but most of them fail to consider basic question. How can someone actually managed time? When you manage people, you give them tax to complete and check in on them once in a while. When you manage a project, you make neat little spreadsheets and break out the getting things done book and Chart Your progress along the way, but with time none of those things apply. You can't tell time what to do. You can't give time a raise when it performs well and fire time when it doesn't meet your expectations. nope, you can't manage time too bad about all those books. Someone should have said something. Before the two hundred seventieth authors started writing. Like it or not time just marches on. More bad news. Unfortunately. There's more bad news about time, sorry. Like money time is limited, but unlike money once time has gone, there's no getting back. You can't earn back. What has been spent? Time is closely related to the concepts of regret, inaction, indecision and wistfulness all those things we left behind some point. Don't you hate that? Time cannot be managed, and when it's gone, it's gone forever, but if you're waiting for good news, you won't be disappointed here it. Is there still enough time for what you need? There's still time to start that business. Take that trip. Start running those two miles that will help you run the marathon six months from now or better yet filling the blank for yourself based on what you've always wanted to do, but if kept putting off for some reason. Ready there is still time for me to blank. Got It if not, you may need more than a few seconds to think about it. It's worth full consideration, even though time is money. Whatever you choose, hold it close to you. Make it your focus and don't let anyone take it from you. Any number of people will try to. Back to starbucks. Gays in the suits have left still thinking about what they said. Time is money. cording to the time is money people I've been wasting a lot of time this year I traveled to Iraq Mongolia Pakistan and twenty other countries, all without an agenda or anything, really important I had to do there I spent an absurd number of hours, standing in line or sitting on park benches, waiting for train or bus stations to open up all over the world I, opted out of the next phase of graduate school, and worked toward building a career as a fulltime writer before that I spent four years working for free in West Africa, so you can probably guess what I think about the link between time and money. No, there's nothing to that idea so much for that right. But wait maybe I've got it partly wrong to. Time is not the same thing as money, but it does have tremendous value I don't WanNa be like the awesome. Andy s that Percy Shelley wrote about quote. Look on my works year mighty and despair nothing beside remains round the decay of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare, the Lone and level sands stretch far away and quote. Nope don't want that. Instead I wanted to treat valuable time with the respect. It deserves I want to do something really great with a valuable time I have how about you? The best strawberry. Oh and by the way research shows that the average user clicks away from blog posts somewhere around the three hundred word point. Since. You've broken the curve and made it further than that. Here's an old story that always makes me smile. The story is about Zen. Student who is running from a tiger in the forest. The tiger is catching up to him and the only way out is to jump over a cliff that leads to certain death on the rocks below. With no real options. The Zen student jumps over.

Women are perceived to become liabilities the moment they become mothers. And that's just not true

"You know I grew up in the Philippines. I had really strong female role models my mother my grandmothers. We had a female President Corazon Aquino when I was growing up and I grew up as an empowered girl you know part of the Ywca of Manila's one of their team leaders. When I was thirteen and a started organizing leadership conferences for girls when I was eighteen and then so when I left the Philippines to come to school I left Venus. This empowered girl and then I went to Mongolia College. Which is the first ever and oldest college for Women in America which has a strong tradition if educating female leaders that would change the world and right out of college and I was working at Goldman Sachs. I was sparked of launching the Investment Banking Women's Network for Goldman and so all of these experiences. Really you know allowed me to appreciate the importance of having strong female role models in women leaders all around. I think there's a surprising number of similarities. I also grew up with a very strong mother. Who set a wonderful example of how to work hard and achieve your dreams but also have a clear opinion and share that I also went to an all women's college so Wellesley and it was a really powerful example for me to see all the leadership roles filled by women because that was just the assumption. Why wouldn't the leadership refilled by a woman? I think couple of differences. I grew up in a lot of other countries. As well you came from the Philippines. I I grew up in China for three years in Japan in Ecuador and France and so seeing gender equality quite differently in all of those countries and comparing that to the United States was a real surprise for me it was it was so different from country to country in China for example. There's a saying that women hold up half the sky and that struck me as clearly women would would have half of the opportunities would be just as strong and through both school but then also work and now I have three young daughters six year old and almost four year old twin girls and so I care about gender equality even more But this has been with me from his as far as I can remember. We NEED TO ACCELERATE GENDER EQUALITY. So we can have it in your daughter's life exactly that quite a bit actually at the rate we're going. The whole world stands to benefit if women participate in the economy identically. Demand according to Quinlan's research at McKinsey it would boost the world's economy annually by twenty trillion dollars. That's the size of China and US economies combined. It's all countries align their gender equality efforts with the progress made by their most impressive neighbors. The world's economy could grow by eleven percent that's twelve trillion dollars. A remedy for inequality is a daunting task and it starts at home from the United States may seem like a developed nation but the United States for the last decade has been ranking in the twenties to thirties and the global gender gap report and so there is a lot of progress that needs to be achieved and one of these areas is an economic empowerment so the gender pay gap still persists here in the United States. The gap has narrowed since nineteen eighty. But it's been stable over the last fifteen years and as of last year on average women have earned only eighty five percent of what men earned and based on this estimate. This means it would take an extra thirty nine days of work for women to earn what men did. As of last year there is also the perception that this gender pay gap is imaginary. The latest survey shows that around half of the men believed that there is no gender pay gap so this is very much like half of the men are denying climate change. You know. It's the same principle of denying Ariel that exists which makes it even more problematic to solve when we think about the intersection of race and gender gap. It gets even worse with African American women getting paid the least on average a second area around economic empowerment for women as access to capital for women. Women receive less than ten percent of venture capital funding and ever ge US women are starting more and more companies access to capital is not as easy for women as it is for men. If you're a woman of color the probability that you'll get funding from a venture capitalist is less than one percent so there is a lot of work we need to do around economic empowerment women.

Sebastian Durrand - Advice for Players to stay fit during the lockdown with world renowned strength and conditioning coach Seb Durrand

"Hello Sebastian. Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Thank you happy to share Great Avalon and Journeys Tough Times. Where tennis players tennis trainers tennis coaches and a lot of other people are still at home and can't get out and can't train so looking forward to hearing some advice from you so first of all. How are you getting on? What Day is this for you? It's actually the day number and for us fan home and We try we're GONNA talk. I think it'd be layer but we try to manage between the between our work our job and the the kids in the sport of the kids and they're all more of the kids and so it's kind of a different organization in different schedule every day but we always need to find a solution. Find a way to do it. So yeah if a bit of a routine at the moment so the first thing. I wanted to do and you wanted to do with. My wife was assured to create structure and routine because Fischetti for the kids when they don at school begins leave. They can wake up and do the Descru- anytime so we keep on putting the clock for sure. Every morning we wake up and then we all know more like at nine. We started more thirty nine. We stopped homework. You know so we. We keep routines this even. If it's a bit more we are just a little bit more for sure that we put routine every day. The do some some spoilt. We tried to go outside a little bit to move. Yeah we try to really create Routines like this. We share more time with them if if we can for sure but definitively the fact two creeks tributaries There's no rolling become a bit of a mess inside the house. I think it's important especially if if it's one week it's okay like only days or two weeks but for the moment now we are ten day was gonna be full five six weeks so and we don't know so. How many days does it take you to discover you needed to retain yes? She's they want. We said we need to keep the structure that that's growing born on. We not to to strike structure would say but it's not because you are not me new late at the. It's not like when you go to school for sure but still too great routine. It's super important. Yeah for sure. And we take the sun when the sun is out we tried to descend for sure. So yeah it's kind of different kind of ribbon but we still receive tried to put structure every day. That's important yeah. That's really interesting. Only yesterday. They there were a few days behind you a good few days but only yesterday discovered myself that I sort of found my routine. I just I didn't want to write down and say this would have to do. I just have to find it. A bit. Natural. On yesterday was yeah. I stay where I felt a bit more. Okay well like it open to more than I do a bit. A worked and our baby gets up. We all get breakfast together. Then I do some exercise and then do bit more work than we go for. Walks does a bit. It took a few days for me to find a national retain which I think I have. Now which is great but yeah so some people are different crates that you knew straight away. Look we need routine here especially the kids are a bit older full of energy and e and this and and even in the week we tried to keep the we try to keep the weeks as they normally have for example. The weekend we try to get their homework because the weekend they don't work so said we tried even in the week two because if not you don't noise it's Monday or Tuesday or Sunday or your little bit. Less old days are the same so we tried to the same like today's like school We keep on working and then when he's the weekend it's bit more fund. I mean we try to make it a bit more fun. Actually for the moment we had to leave only one weekend. So is this the beginning? But because I think it's important to create the structure to because we really have to think on term process and it's good the first week you know it's nice. We'll do this with that then. Let's see in four five weeks. That's a different storm and I think it's important not to create boring routines. But in the same times to create structure I would say Craig's born really good electing a bit of exercise yourself like some Ronin. How I know it's Day ten. How have you done any exercise? Have you dealt with it? Yeah Yeah I have the chance to have a trainer at home so I can bike. That's good end in the sometimes. We allowed to go outside no more than one hour but I can still go and little bit but my main goal at the moment is not really trying to improve on anything is just to keep heads and keeping shape. I would say but I know I'm not gonNA try to be like overtrained during those moment is. Just keep the shake. That's my it for me. That's nine Mongolia. Yeah I think that's a mango for a lot of people just trying to maintain where they're not to gain weight not to gain like what about. We did have some food tips on functional tennis during the week for me. The tree food tips were worn. Was you're using less energy? So eat less. Make your mail. Smaller have one less mail to was a high junk food. Buy less junk food so just put them in places where you don't normally look on tree was have a could off time at nighttime we stop beating because a lot of people eat junk food late at night on if you say okay after seven thirty. We don't eat so do you have any tips. Who What would be your one main. Eaten tip that you could tell us the ad because I mean I for sure I still Tommy steps. I do a day and the day that I don't do too much around five thousand steps a day and when I do I go to ten twelve thirteen thousand steps which is not a lot more like fifteen to twenty thousand steps. When a big. When I moving my day you know normal day so for sure. Our consumption analogy is is divided nearly by to every day. So it's kind of meeks for me. The nutrition of finding a balance between for sure not gaining weight and nuts. Having the junk food for sure but in a send times. Winnie the human sustained to be strong too so five to go on. Diet for me would be a mistake because we need to have the human system at the top so for sure to keep the freight veges fruits. It's really something important. Keep a little bit the carbs. I mean again. The structuring the Lille having like a breakfast person abby like breakfast lunch snack dinner for sure to make everything a little bit lighter than no more. Bettina sometimes to have like a certain amount of food and energy because we need to knock to store but we need to have the human system important that the bottle I think. The fruits and vegetables are important. Keep the immune system and the three important. Maybe we just need to buy smaller plates. Yeah for sure this this The food is really like nuts because we all need to disclose to all the time so it's really not to have that kind of reflects or go at grab it. Is things things. So that's important just to keep the structure again. That's super important for me to structure structure structure. Okay well enough about Kobe. Nineteen at the moment. Tell me your physical trainer to some great tennis players. Dmitrov worked with other players which I find out about. How did you get into personal training before that? Did you play tennis as a kid? Yeah Oh yeah. I stopped playing tennis in four years old. My parents. I think I felt a little bit like everybody. Mike Burns Blake any similar date and while they were playing a good board.

You can find all episodes of dictators and all other podcast originals for free on spotify to stream dictators for free on spotify. Just open the APP and type dictators in the search bar at podcast. We are grateful for you our listeners. You allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at podcast and twitter at podcast network? Today we're examining Genghis Khan's brutal. Dictatorship will explore. How espionage influenced his nation building military strategies finally will unpacked the transfer of power to his complicated air and the unlikely ally that helped consolidate their empire by twelve o six Genghis Khan had united the disparate tribes of the Mongolian Steppe. The feet was unprecedented. It was the first time. The Mongols had seated sole authority to a single con. The era of Packs Mangala was set to begin by the end of his reign. The Mongols would controlled virtually all of Asia and parts of Eastern Europe. During that time Genghis would oversee a massive espionage. Operation Create the first international postal system and encourage religious tolerance over his subjects at his empire. Zenith the conqueror reigned over one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse domains. In the world. The question became now that the Mongols were united could their new con- lead them out of centuries of conflict and into an era of progress. Genghis was concerned about the long term needs of his growing tribe. The Mongols harsh landscape yielded limited natural resources and war with their more civilized. Neighbors seemed inevitable. If Ganga's were to have a lasting impact he would have to harness all the instruments of Mongol strength. He'd need to change his strategy and he needed to do it soon. By twelve O six. His rival and blood brother Jamaica was dead. The clans were united and with this came the ability to form intelligence networks. That would play a key. Role in the evolution of the Mongol Empire Genghis oversaw an intricate and growing spy network where information regarding troop movements supply caches weather and other critical. Intel was relayed by horseback rider according to author and historian John Zombie Genghis Khan's ability to mass forces communicate over long distances achieve intricate synchronization of operations manipulate and exploit enemy. Weaknesses and effectively employ psychological warfare. Tactics was unrivalled in the thirteenth century. It was a fascinating uniquely Mongolian system in which a typical spy looked after three to four horses. When a horse was fatigued the traveler would rotate it. Out Giving the stallion freedom to run without the rider's weight. This system allowed riders to travel over one hundred miles a day for Genghis Khan. This would become integral when he ultimately faced off against civilizations with greater numbers and more advanced technology. The leader was brilliant at identifying and gaining advantage and the knowledge he could cultivate with this network proved incredibly important. In finding the enemy's weakness it also proved useful in non-military matters this spy. Route was re purposed into an elaborate postal service connecting the east to the West by the thirteenth century. The Mongol Empire utilized a postal station that delivered continent wide correspondents. These relay stations or yams as they were known. We're the heartbeat of the empire. The Yams were used for the dissemination of official mail for correspondence between foreign dignitaries and traveling officials and for delivering tributes as the Mongols acquired new lands and neighbors merchants became important intelligence sources as well they provided unique insights into the countries where they traded especially when it came to dealing with the customs of foreign actors. This intelligence allowed. Genghis to develop a multi pronged approach to fighting battles utilizing diplomatic and economic strategies rather than his previous scorched earth policy even when he deployed units across large swath of land. He could still communicate efficiently allowing the army to coordinate in a way the enemy simply could not this very much came in handy when youngest con switched his focus from consolidating his power in Mongolia to conquering neighboring lands. It's unclear why Gingas Kahn turned his attention. Outward historians give many reasons revenge. Power drought more fertile lands etc but the most common one is the simplest plunder. Genghis Khan wanted more wealth for his people and the Chinese contingents to the north and east had it first. He attacked the weaker. Toungoo empire to the north in a land known as C. SIA. He did so. With what would become the trademark tactics of the Mongol Empire surprise them so chaos and decimate their lifelines show around twelve? O Seven Ce. Genghis Khan led his army to the Gobi Desert. No Sane person would expect an attack from such a place. The desert was nearly one thousand miles across and had the most dramatic daily temperature shifts on earth. It was a daunting task. Especially when done with some tens of thousands of soldiers however one of the great strengths of the Mongol army was it's incredibly efficient movement. Instead of traveling in columns like armies of the period the Mongols spread out wide horizontally. This allowed for the horses to openly grays and the soldiers to move more freely. It was also one of the primary reasons they needed an efficient messaging system with an army so spread out. It was immensely important to get orders from one end to the other in a timely fashion. The Mongols were also incredibly adept at survival. They stored milk for meals. Drank their horses blood and ate the meat of any animals that died of exhaustion. They sent out scouts that thoroughly mapped every resource. They came across an wore clothes. Ideally made to protect them against the harsh weather. According to Marco Polo any Mongol soldier could survive up to ten days on the move requiring an incredibly small amount of sustenance. Perhaps more importantly the Mongols were incredibly disciplined. They followed orders precisely and rarely would even consider rebelling. This was due entirely to Genghis Khan's rigid and ruthless laws. Not only did he have Azero strike policy breaking the rules. Meant losing your head but he had zero strike policy for everyone in a single army faction that meant that. If in your group ten fellow soldiers one of them fled the battle early. All ten would be executed. This not only instilled fear but accountability and the Mongolians quickly learned to act upon their leaders every demand. The Mongols invasion of the Ottoman Empire took place between twelve o seven and twelve o nine and was not the cleanest of affairs nomadic tribes were woefully unprepared to storm the fortified city walls. Their bows and arrows. Had little effect against concrete slabs and it didn't matter how efficiently they could move if every entry point was sealed but something Genghis Khan was always willing to do was experiment. He began to learn about siege weapons from the locals took prisoners to teach him the weaknesses of cities and used his spies to instill discord amongst the local populations. He even tried to divert a river to flood a city but accidentally ended up flooding his own military camp despite the hardships. The campaign was relatively successful ultimately resulting in the Ottoman empire becoming a sort of vassal state to the Mongols but the Ottoman empire was merely a warm up around for the enemy. The Mongols were about to face by twelve ten another con took notice of Genghis Khan success a ruler known as the Golden Khan of the Jin Dynasty had recently risen to power the Empire to the East considered the unification of the Mongol tribes a blessing. They thought they could make the barbaric nomads into a vassal state. And use the ascension of the young Golden Khan as an excuse to send an emissary but the ruler the messengers met with was not some ignorant fool to be bullied. He was a ruthless conqueror. A brilliant strategist and most importantly a wily opportunist. When the emissary made their proposal to Genghis Khan he is said to have turned spat on the ground and then hurled nasty insults about the Jin Dynasty in their pathetic Golden Con. It was a clear declaration of war and had gave Genghis Khan a chance to solidify the tribes once and for all if he called them to march on the Jin Dynasty and they answered with loyal dedication he would know that the Mongols truly recognized him as Khan fortunately for him. The Jin Dynasty in the Mongols already had a caustic relationship. The golden kings had meddled in Mongol Affairs for decades they had demanded taxes dominated trade routes and treated the tribes like Barbarians. All while hiding behind their luxurious city walls rallying. The troops against them wasn't difficult after consulting with the eternal Blue Sky of the tenure ISM religion for three days and nights genghis. Kahn gave word. The Mongols would attack Jin Dynasty and the great city of Chengdu was to be invaded all of the difficulties. They faced so far hailed in comparison to the enemy on the other side of their journey. The Jin Dynasty was composed of approximately fifty million people including a splattering of tribes.

"mongolia" Discussed on Short Wave

"You're listening to shortwave from NPR. So for people. Who Don't know I totally know where is Mongolia? Mongolia is in Central Asia right between Russia and China. The landscape to me looks a little bit like a mixture between Montana and Mars if you can picture that delightful so this this time last year before you were short waves reporter. You don't like to think about that time. You went to Mongolia it's true. Why would one go to Mongolian winter all the travel guides discourage discourage it? I might discourage it but I purposely went there then because winter is at the heart of this whole story. So how cold are we talking here. It's super cold. uh-huh freeze your nose. Harris cold I actually had to tape. Hand warmers all over my microphone so it wouldn't freeze. Wow it is cold. Oh I found this piece of tape tape of me complaining about it minus eighteen degrees right now. This is really cool. I could tell me what you say. Cool coach it wasn't acting but some types of winters are so extreme matty that they actually have an official name so in Mongolian. It's called a zoo would that's when a winter tur- is so bad. It kills significant number of livestock in Mongolia or one out of four people make their living hurting. That has huge consequences. I mattie Safai and I'm Emily Kouanga today in the show. We had to Mongolia to learn about the brutal winters known as and how these natural disasters have changed enjoyed countries way of life okay so Mongolia is periodically affected by this extreme weather event. That happens in the winter called. What does this look like? Yeah so tender standard. I wanted to meet someone directly impacted. Divide it this man named Roy Eaton Gacek. He's a father of four super good bad Santa could do prates daughter's hair getting get somebody for school and everything. He was born a herder in eastern Mongolia and in January. Two Thousand Oilman as he tells it woke up at sunrise to check on his animals. Snow had fallen in the night about a foot. They were writing out a bad winter storm and he was really worried about is heard so how he cracked the door of his gear. Those are these circular felt cover tents that herders living and it was eerily quiet outside blindingly finding Lee white from all this snow. What did you see when he opens the door? Do not with this new household off. He's Carcass Saas new. Shut us a dozen of his sheep. Goats had died in the night. Those still alive yet about one hundred animals at the time. We're trying to find grassy but the land was literally locked in by snow. The hotel does ndas and it was really difficult to see this. He Sang. It was horrifying and it happened. Every few days boyens animals would succumb to starvation. Illness exposure and by the end of the winter he essentially lost his entire heard the type of food that came to his doorstep. It's called Saga which Mongolian means white death. While I think a loss at this level I imagine it's not purely financial absolutely I mean this. This isn't the same but there are dairy farmers in my family and you kind of like build relationship with your cows you literally like have them from birth to death so I have imagine it would be devastating like on multiple levels if you just slowly lose them over time right. They're not just economic assets and the loss of those animals is a social loss. It's spiritual loss experts. I spoke to in Mongolia. Described as a slow onset natural disaster different from a rapid rapid onset natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake. So how many other herders were affected by the white death that year that year the two thousand six it claimed claimed about three and a half million livestock. Wow quite a bit law. It's eleven percent of the national hurt. And when you consider that at the time one out of every two households made their living hurting. It's significant begin. Animals represent wealth. So it would be as if your life savings were too slowly disintegrate. So what did the herders actually do in response Some rebuilt their heard those who could but others who lost everything they left gave up hurting fled the countryside seeking jobs in in urban areas uprooting. Their lives are good hurting Dad Johansen hair braided guy. He was one of those who left. Almost your short could the mother oh well many migrated. He's saying because it was impossible to make a living and it shows in the population and barter that's Mongolia's capital it has has tripled in the past thirty years exploded. Zid is one of the many migration drivers bringing people to the city. And I could see this when I lived there. I was reporting reporting and living in his apartment building and I looked off my balcony window. The hills were just covered in Gares. Those felt covered tents that herders live in. It was a picture. Sure of all of these people who had moved to the city and settled there and the city. Just couldn't contain all the new arrivals or does it still happening as it. On this scale that hits every corner of the country not that common prior to two thousand had happened about once a decade but was weird about two thousand is. It happened the next year and the next year and again again in two thousand ten so by the end of the decade there were forces and twenty one million livestock died in that period it totally overwhelmed Mongolian people that government tens of thousands of families packed up and left. That's that is horrifying of what is going on. Like what is causing US okay. So it's tempting to blame climate change and that is in fact the biggest culprit in this whole affair. Mongolia is indeed a warmer drier. Replace than it was eight years ago. But what I found is that zoot is actually caused by cocktail of other factors like over-grazing and deforestation. Basically quickly anything that destroys. The grassland is bad for animals. You need that grassland lending food it's a goat's buffet table and to not have it sets them up for good because this summer is a time when they fatten up. And if the grass is gone from drought or other things they're even more vulnerable when the winter is bad. Oh little bit of science here yes. The drought okay. Means less grassland and in Mongolia less grassland creates even more drought vicious cycle. Yeah because Mongolia. It's land locked all right. So the vast majority of precipitation rain snow. It comes from the land it comes from the grass. Water is transpired by plants into the atmosphere so so without grass Mongolia is even drier so given all of this is hurting still considered a good way to make a living in Mongolia. I think Mongolians are trying to figure that out. There's fewer herders but they're better prepared and trying to manage the Paschel and more sustainably local communities training herders to brace for a bad winter. Do things like make extra. Hey for their animals to eat. Purchase Livestock Insurance and pool there resources so the individual costs aren't so high all right so that that sounds great but are herders still kind of on edge. Are they like Shariq. Dowd anticipating the next. You know so I used to report in Rural Alaska inefficient community and herders. They kind of remind me of fishermen they know they're at the mercy of the weather but they're very tough and resourceful within their own lives and herders are doing the same. They're trying to make the most of what they have. They're kind of cultural heroes for practicing this way of life. That's become increasingly less common in the state. Broadcaster actually gives these awards to the best herders in in the nation. Please tell me you went to a best herder award ceremony absolutely went to a buzzer award ceremony. The championship herder. Who I met in the province was this man named near Goo Davidoff and I talked to him right after he got his award? Lord of host was also he was practical. Nature is unpredictable. It's harder there's less rain. Animals can't get fat but if we prepare extra hey. We can overcome such natural disasters. We don't have to be afraid this spring their animal's gave birth to hundreds of babies. I went back to visit during the birthing season in March. This pen is just full like a hundred lambs. Just these tiny little cotton balls near to make us feel better about this. Do you mind no. I just don't appreciate being manipulated. I wanted to show you the opposite right so not death life and what it signals for the next generation of herders. Who are continuing to do this? I'm picking up what you're putting down on. Thank you all right. I'm Lequan thank you for bringing us the story. Absolutely Mattie. This episode showed was produced by Rebecca Ramirez edited by yet lay and fact checked by emily.

You can buy for your Android phones that can do the same thing. I'm just stopped using Android a few years ago. But they have it as well. Tell me about portrait mode. We were just we were just with a bunch of Kazahkh eagle hunters. And I know you love portrait mode and taking intimate portrait s- of people with just the iphone with some fairly stunning results. Well, it's funny when they came out with portrait mode. It was autumn or late fall of twenty sixteen and I was here in Mongolia. And I'd just gotten and I think it was just thinking back, maybe the iphone eight, plus I forget, whatever. Anyway, it was brand new portrait mode, and we were on a trip in western Mongolia with again with the Khazakh eagle hunters who are a very small group of folks that carry on traditional ways from thousands of years ago. And so we had a group of sixty eagle hunters with our photo group on a private eagle festival. We called it where they do various. Events. Sporting events. It's like a little Olympics for the day right for these guys. Okay. Well, so have these fifty guys dressed up in magnificent traditional wear, and by the way, this is the stuff they wear almost all the time. So it's not like they're putting on the one outfit. They wear once a year. No these guys wear these five days a week. It's it's unusual for them. Not to be wearing the stuff. Well, so I had fifty fifty fifty eagle hunters. And I didn't have a lot of time. What we did is. We asked their permission. We'd like to take their photograph..

"Eagle? They hadn't seen her in two years. Just like, I never left. A few minutes of seeing everybody. Bajic oh place. Now, how did a woman from Oklahoma and out here in Mongolia? Well, I read a book on it's like the fire was lit. I just knew I had to do it. And as I was researching I went to the library. And I found this old book that had black and white photos of eagle hunters Mongolia. So, you know, this beautiful shaggy horse and this man with a giant eagle in a FOX pelt on his horse. And it just looked like the most incredible thing. I thought I have to have to see it. I have to do it at the age of seventeen her father, a former air force. Stealth pilot brought her to Mongolia Lauren returned five years later with funding from a Fulbright scholarship, then she earned a PHD based on her work with the eagle hunters. These are the people that can talk to animals because they have relationships with goats sheep horses. Camels eagles they have intimate knowledge of where snow leopards are in. Fox's are there's no agriculture here because the land. Not arable. So they've ingeniously learned to domesticate animals, and then build these unique relationships with wild animals to relationship that she learned from people who endure the life of nineteenth century ranchers cows ox who make up just four percent of Mongolians. They have no running water, no electricity. They survive on meat and milk and burn dung as fuel. The nomads live in clusters of the half dozen families are so the boy's mind the flocks while the men right in search of foxes to make I for subzero survival in all the years you've been doing this. What have you learned about these animals dot the hunter named chew Kahn gave us an answer? We never saw coming. As they said in the old times if the horse make sure name famous in a race once a year the eagle makes your name famous a hundred times a year. If I give to people many FOX's they will say was chew who gifted us. The foxes eagle hunting is more about your name being spread far and wide among the people. So if equal hunting is about the ego would men we wondered how they saw Lauren Miguel. Did you have any doubt that a woman could hunt with an eagle? Oh, he said, we've never had a female eagle hunter. Why did your brother take her in? She came from a world far away. She had her mindset on learning to hunt with the eagle. The women GRA motivation came from deep in her heart. We just couldn't say, no. When Lauren I came to Mongolia? It took her two weeks to catch an eagle she could call her own. How do you catch a golden eagle? Yes. So you have a dead hair that you lay out with a crow or raven states nearby, and you encircle it in a net. So the eagle on migration looks down. And sees this hair that only a crow has possession of an ethics. I can easily bully that Croat of that rabbit and have a free meal to myself. So it comes in. And when it tries to grab the the dead rabbit the net enfolds around the eagle the eagle is taught to feed at the hand of the hunter. And as long as the meals are regular, the goals are calm contempt and come back for more. They perch on the hunters arm with a rawhide leash called a Jess tied to their legs..

"National language groups language what language you spoke sometimes deline your religion delineated like how you identify yourself now we have this really this map in china is yellow in mongolia's purple mongolia was part of china no there's inner mongolia there's greater mongolia actually to finish the point that i was starting to if you if you're online and you're planning your trip and all your thinking about his food john than food on your trip where if you see that it's connected to all this other awesome stuff and it's like we'll fuck going there for two weeks i'm going to spend a year and i know that there's a railroad that connects to this and this and here's korean and japan and there's this railroad that goes across russia and there's all these central asian republics that's the joy of a paper map that might even be an exercise to anybody who's listening it's cool to dream about travel but suddenly you get you get a map on the table and it's really possible yeah and you start saying oh right there or go to saudi from there that's pretty close saturday could be tricky i imagine i'm thinking independent travel just going and wandering around harder and saw inside it's just it's more if slaves their saudi arabia where they just like take the filipino like workers grab their passports say you gotta work it off to get it back yet is actually in this part of north africa as well there's some really active slavery yeah it's not like you're not born into slavery but like you're pretty much you can't you know free to go well i know let's see if we get to the on off we want to make this episode into a total bummer about human trafficking but in northern africa if we get to the africa map here i think it's it's sudan or someplace like that what kind of prejudices these matt makers have africa's last one here yeah so so for example i'm not sure if this still happens but i i suspect it does northern sudan is more arabic speaking and muslim oriented and then southern sudan is more and mystic and tribal of really and so that's oftentimes they'll defeat ought to fact check this but i know there was a time when basically people were being kidnapped from these tribal regions and then taken up to work for free slaves basically in the northern part of sudan the loophole was oh well if you become a muslim than it's better can't be a slave really because we can slave non unbelievers right but if you all you have to do is convert and then you're no longer a slave we can't keep you being slave and then go back just say i'm not sure i'm not sure but it was it was a creepy thing said that it was like a swiss guy who would come and he would buy all these people out of slavery he would just come with a stack of money and by people's freedom and then somebody said do you know that they're going to get on the bus go bax out and they're gonna kidnapped again and you'll have to it's a complicated situation that's the i mean this is one thing that you you kinda it's easy to travel and be completely ignorant to all this stuff but if you if you dig in a little bit you don't have to dig far in the history of sudan to know there's some really creepy stuff like that happening there and that happens in almost any part in country in the world that you have these unfortunate things happen united states to i'm sure that if you looked into human trafficking other issue yeah real undergrad though but it's it's.
