Traveling To Snowdonia

"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay

London And Surrounding Areas Restarting Lockdowns Due To Coronavirus Mutating

"And parts of essex and hot fanfare are hours away from returning to the highest level of covid nineteen restrictions following an alarming spike of cases in the capital pubs restaurants and other indoor entertainment. Venues will close once more. The latest surge has been ascribed to a new variant of the corona virus which appears to be growing more rapidly than previously for the moment however the uk's government says it has no plans to review the curious christmas truce. It appears to think it has negotiated with the virus. While i'm joined with more on this boy monocle. Twenty four health and science correspondent dr. Chris smith also a virologist at cambridge university chris. This the idea that there's a new strain of covid nineteen sounds like the very definition of the absolute last thing. We want to hear at this point. How grim news is this to be quite honest with you. I'm not alarmed. I'm not surprised. And i'm actually quite reassured and explain all those things ovar mutate because they're based on the same genetic code is running in pretty much will life on earth then the same mechanisms that lead to life evolving and changing apply viruses. And so as they go through their hosts they would evolve and change and corona virus is no exception. That's exactly what's happened to you. Therefore we would anticipate that we would see different strains and different emerging and indeed. This is not the first time it has happened. We've seen happened early. On in the pandemic in china we've seen it happen and disclosed various different forms of the viruses spread across the world and in europe they documented some of the same changes are now being seen in this new variant in the south east of england. So this is not altogether new in terms of concept and is not altogether new in terms of variant. This being disclosed. We're reassured by matt. Hancock saying yesterday house commons the the. Don't think although they are confirming that this will lead to the virus sidestepping the effects of a vaccine. We don't think it makes people who catch it for ill. It just may be transmits a bit better. Although that speculation on airpods that they're they're saying it might be linked to an increasing cases in the southeast england in terms of course load but don't know for sure if we're going to try to be exceptionally optimistic about this. Is there any possibility that the reason the viruses having to mutate to survive is there an indication that perhaps that means we've got it on the run will certainly when you apply pressure to a virus and by pressure. I mean for instance putting a vaccine into a population so you create an immune barrier or you put in place public health measures. You are forcing the virus to change to optimize to those new conditions. Because that's why things evolve in the first place. They're responding to selective pressure from their environment. And we know we do this to the flu. We know this happens with hiv. When we give people hiv drugs for example then the virus that grows in them is the only one that can bypass the blockade of drug. And that's why we use multiple drugs at wants to minimize the chance. The happening so the concept is common. Well understood so yes. It is. Theoretical possibility that by applying pressure to the virus. We are forcing it to become more infectious so that despite robbing it of opportunities to transmit it can still continue to transmit given the does appear to have become more infectious in the capital. However does it make the proposed relaxation of restrictions around christmas. Look even more. Ill advised than they might have. Well we don't know it has become more infectious in the capital. We know we've got more cases same in the east and southeast of england essex positive of cheer kent. They've seen big increases in numbers of the trend is in an upward direction. Which is why caution. Reproach has been taken in the uk by moving. Probably the best part of eleven million people who live in those territories into a so-called tier three situation to apply more pressure to the virus. The idea i think is this is anticipating the trend is going upwards where we are today is not where we're going to be tomorrow and so by bearing down on ahead of christmas when there's going to be this loosening effect where we got five days of reveling and Enhanced mixing the there are going to be more cases so if we start molo point and already have more control at the virus to start with them. We're going to end up finishing the low point than we otherwise would is or anything that the rest of the world should have learned from the united states. Experience we've thanksgiving because that was sort of a test run of what happens if all of a sudden millions of people travel by aircraft and by train and spend at least today in close quarters with households other than their own well. This is exactly what happened with chinese new year and when millions of people were mobilized to crush china to get together for the chinese new year this probably spawned even more cases because people traveled internationally for that event to so yes. History is full of examples of peop- of of Repeating itself and this is no exception. We are anticipating that. The mixing that goes on over christmas will lead to more cases. The question is how many more cases and how are we going to cope with them. So is there a good reason at least scientifically good reason. Why not just this government. But any government wouldn't just say to its people look seriously. Christmas is basically cancelled We are just going to have to suck this up for a few more months. We do have a vaccine to look forward to. We do have a restoration of normality to look forward to. We might maybe think about throwing in an extra couple of bank holidays around. June but christmas is basically not going to happen. Will the president of the royal college of emergency medicine was asked this very question on bbc. Radio four's pm program. Yesterday an her answer was. Are you asking me. This is a doctor or as you asking me this as human and actually you get a very different also because the doctor slash the infection control person is going to say which just council everything we should imprison. Everybody break the chain of transmission bear down on the virus but the human element of this is people need something to look forward to. Morale is incredibly important. And if you rob people away of the one thing. They've looked forward to in. What is the end of a very dismal year than this will probably translate into poor compliance in the long term. it will probably therefore translate into in the long-term more cases more headaches more problems and ultimately more casualties from are so. I think the government have of compromise. Here the trying to go for a controlled christmas. Where if you allow people some flexibility you know that most people will be responsible. You hope that they are. You're willing to tolerate some degree of of letting your hair down because you know that in a noncompliant christmas where you'd said don't do this and if on breaks the rules anyway he's probably going to be a higher price to pay in the long term. I think that's really the equation that they've done. Well let's look finally at the progress of that vaccine which is now being rolled out in united kingdom and again it's a question of government messaging. Does it strike you. As a missed opportunity that there is a website with a rolling hourly update of how many people have now been vaccinated. Well the numbers are not that high yet You see numbers like yesterday. They did three hundred people or four hundred people in this hospital and that hospital. And when you see that there's this peak of mount everest which is sixty eight million people in the uk high eight billion people on earth. Hide one what. You wanna do When you knock a few hundred off that is not much. And so. I think maybe that's coming may be there. There is that opportunity in the future but for now. It probably wouldn't be a big demonstrable difference

Progress Toward A Safer Psychedelic Drug To Treat Depression And Addiction

"There's growing evidence that psychedelic drugs can help people with mental health problems like addiction and depression. But these drugs also cause hallucinations and other dangerous side effects. So as NPR's Jon Hamilton reports, scientists are working to create safer alternatives. The drug ibogaine comes from the roots of a West African shrub. Small studies suggest it can reduce drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms. But David Olson of the University of California, Davis says using ibogaine is a treatment presents huge challenges. Ibogaine is like the Mount Everest of psychedelics. It causes hallucinations and potentially fatal heart problems. Also, it's really hard to make in large quantities. Olson in a team of researchers had a question. Can you take a really complex molecular structure like ibogaine and distill it down to its essential elements that give rise to the beneficial effects? Coulson's team started by giving the ibogaine molecules some nips and tucks be locked off the parts of the structure that gave rise to a lot of the deleterious effects and we left the part of the structure intact. It still was able to have anti addictive and anti depressant properties. The changes also left the substance that was easy to manufacture. The scientist named their creation tavern and tha Log or TV G, and they began testing it in rodents, including some binge drinking mice. Every single animal in the experiment. Reduce their consumption for alcohol, which was really, really surprising. TVG also helped rats that had been addicted to heroin, Olson says. Usually these rats relapse in response to light or sound cues they associate with the drug Tabernacle log is able to have this long lasting protective effect on heroin relapse. TVG also improved symptoms of depression in mice. All without producing any heart problems or behaviors associated with hallucination. Wilson, who has a financial stake in T B G, says drugs based on psychedelic substances have great potential because they work in a different way. They don't mask disease symptoms. Really designed to try to rewire the brain. The T B G results appear in the journal Nature, and it's still not clear whether they will hold up in people. But scientists not involved in the study say the approach has great potential. It's definitely promising it zah first step Gabriella Manzano is a researcher at well Cornell Medicine in New York and co author of a commentary on the T V G study. She says it suggest a way to make other psychedelic drugs safe enough to become mainstream options for treating psychiatric disorders. This provides a road map on how we could start tweaking these chemical compounds to make them very useful in the clinic. Keep the good parts get rid of the bad parts. It's still not known, though, whether getting rid of the bad parts will keep the drugs from being effective. Counter. Liston is an associate professor of neuroscience and psychiatry it while Cornell. One of the big questions in the field is is the hallucinogenic experience necessary for getting better. And there's some evidence both ways, Liston says. It's time to figure out what psychedelic drugs and they're triplets counterparts can really do for people with depression, addiction, PTSD and other disorders. Let's gather the data. Let's see what works. Let's make sure we understand the safety profile. But let's also be open to the possibility that these compounds could really help. A lot of people who need help. Listen, notes that one psychedelic ketamine has already been approved to treat depression. Jon Hamilton. NPR news

Why did Mount Everest's height change?

"Mount Everest. Official Height is a contentious topic between China and Nepal until today. Officials from both countries just announced they've agreed the world's highest peak measures exactly 8848.86 M or 29,032 FT. The new number is less than a meter higher than the previously recognized height and comes after more than a decade of debate.

The world's highest mountain officially just got a little bit higher

"Today. China and appall agreeing for the first time announced that Mount Everest, which straddles both countries, is now 29,032 FT. Tall, slightly more than Nepalis previous measurement. About 13 ft higher than China's BBC environmental correspondent Levin saying Khadka joins us from London on Skype Levin, How do you measure this thing? How they do it? Hmm. Now that's the question, isn't it? How do you do it? How do you measure the highest mountain in the world? All right, So look, I don't want to confuse your audiences. It's lot off lot of technology a lot off complications there. But basically what they told me was, it is easy to find out the top of the mountain. But what you need to find out is the bottom of the mountain. How do you find at the bottom of the mountain and that will help them to find its height. So that is where you know the sea level thing comes in, so the Nepalese authorities they used the building goal as the base And then from there, they call this precise leveling again now that sea level needs to reach in the Everest region. Okay, so that's illegal. You know, visibly, you have to reach using your tripod. You know every 50 m or so they did for 250 kilometers and reach the Everest region and that watch as if The mountain is standing on the sea. You know that? Yeah, they calculated. That's one of the ways of doing it. But there are other ways as well well, but I understand that the two countries have argued about the other side how high it is. So when China and measure the mountain in 2005 it found a mounting was 8000 Internet 44.43 M So that it said was the rock surface. Now That's why there was this disagreement and China back then wanted Nepal to agree to this. This hide that found and appall disagreed because the Nepalese How did the snow on top of the summit? You're right. So yes, the the figure of Nepal government was using Woz, including the snow cap. They had this difference all these years. And then finally, you know, Nepal told that okay, This has to be decided once and for all, And then, in the meantime, if you remember in 2015, they were just major earthquake. So many geologists believe that that might have impacted on every side and therefore they have to find out if there was any change. Look, we understand that there's a Almost like a competition among these great mountains, which is the greatest, which is the tallest, which lends itself to the competition among climbers who can climb. You know these peaks and you've just explained that this extra footage really comes from below, really where that climb starts. So just this is really make any difference. When I speak to mountain is what they say is well, it doesn't make any difference to us. But then clearly, you know when countries are using these figures than definitely it becomes a huge issue and also quickly just to remind you when the two countries China and Nepal announced the height this morning, they didn't use the word Everest even once Nepal stuck to it its own name Sagar Mata and I know the Chinese kept on talking about trouble. Oma all these years, you know, Everest, the name itself and the height that was given out. You know it was it was initiative during the British colonial era and so on and so forth. China strictly believes that you know it owns up that mountain to some extent with the park. Everybody feels they own it in some way, But you know nothing. Hearing this news. I've just decided I was going to climate. But now I'm not 13 more feet. That's a bit much by China's standards. BBC's environmental correspondent Levin Sing Khadka on the new height of Mount Everest. The world's tallest mountain is a little bit taller Now, Naveen Thank you, my president.

"mount everest" Discussed on Short Wave

"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring <unk>. Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world. Hey that's a great

You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world.

"Of covert 19 survivors continue to experience serious physical and mental symptoms.

Koven, 19 survivor, Ernesto Castro says the day he left the hospital was one of the best days of his life. Did you feel you had survived? You'd beaten this or are you still having some issues at that point? Being in the hospital first long being in the isolation is really hard. I knew that my muscles after feed could hardly walk merely what I got in the hospital. I feel like I got a new opportunity. Late March, Castro was in the hospital for 10 days with severe Cove in 19 symptoms. He was put on a ventilator in a medically induced coma months later, it's clear his battle with the disease is not over. I'm still not 100%. I still feel tired.

Is Shangri-La A Real Place?

"James Hilton was simply dreaming of a place that humans have yearned for since they I learned to yearn a heaven of sorts a Paradise Utopia Xanadu the garden of Eden Shambala Hilton a popular writer in the first half of the twentieth century named his Happy Place Shangrila and he made at wondrous in spiritual talking it high into the mountains in northwest Tibet. It was setting of his nineteen thirty three adventure. Novel lost horizon which instantly became a worldwide bestseller. It was also made into a major Hollywood film. The legendary Frank CAPRA directed and Ronald Colman Jane Wyatt starred in Nineteen thirty seven from the moment lost horizon hit bookstore shelves Shangri la became synonymous with utopia back. Then it was an ideal a place to escape to during a time when the real world had just been through a global war in the Great Depression since then the simple idea of the place has sparked countless trips. Tibet journeys of faith and perseverance of hope and distant. Promise of supposed enlightenment and sometimes disappointment. It's kind of an amazing phenomenon considering that the place doesn't exist and it never has except for ten years or so when what's now called Camp David. The presidential retreat was founded under the name Shangrila by then President Franklin Roosevelt in nineteen forty two. Or at least that was the only time it's existed until recently but let's start at the beginning. Hilton reportedly did most of the research for his novel in the British Museum Library not far from his home in the northeastern part of London. He never actually visited Tibet. Instead he took inspiration for Shangri la from another utopian dream a place known for centuries as Shala we spoke with Ed Birnbaum who lectures on comparative religion mythology and wrote the way to Shambala in nineteen eighty. He said there was one. Sort of very very garbled version of the Shambala myth that Hilton Red and one of the Catholic explorers writings. But it wasn't an all clear. It was the sort of universal theme and at that time. Tibet was pretty much unexplored. So if you're going to look for hidden utopia that was an ideal place to do it. Shala is a Tibetan Buddhist legend about a Utopian Paradise far in the Northern Mountains of Asia. It said to be a spiritual place where people of all religions and backgrounds live together in harmony and also said to be the place from which when Warren Evil Engulf the rest of the world. A leader will emerge to defeat the forces of chaos and usher in a new age of peace and happiness. Shambala grows out of the Buddhist Teaching College Chakra or the wheel of time which states that the center of the universe. Mount Meru sometimes called Mount Subaru. Set to be well. North of Tibet. Birnbaum said people sort of looked at Tibet as this mysterious Utopian kind of place and the Tibetans themselves looked even farther north for that. Utopia Shambala if Hilton who died in nineteen fifty. Four was indeed modeling Shangri la after the Buddhist teachings of Shambala. It might paint him to learn what's happened to his imaginary wonderland because it's become real but not an particularly Buddhist way in two thousand one the Chinese government which is controlled. Tibet since late nineteen fifties changed the name of Zhongdian County to Shangri la for simple purpose to cash in on tourist dollars. Many areas and China had been vying for the right to change their names. Shangri la and took nearly a decade to decide on a winner. Zhongdian one out in. What the Guardian in two thousand six called one of the most day. She's rebranding exercises in history. Today the larger area Shangrila boasts say Shangrila resort a Hilton Garden Inn Shangrila and airport with daily flights to Beijing Shanghai and Lhasa. The capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region in the heart of what Westerners now as Tibet visitors can tour the largest Betton Buddhist monastery in Yunan province. And when they're done they can cough down. Abreu at the Shangri la beer bar tagline beer made in heaven Tibet and the newly named Shangri la a draw for reasons other than tourist traps. Of course Tibet is known. After all is the roof of the world it shares the highest peak in the World Mount Everest with neighboring Nepal. Though that's a long way from Shangri La. The area's natural beauty is breathtaking. Which makes it a destination for outdoor levers. That's especially popular with Chinese tourists. It's harder for Westerners to secure visas to get there. But is this the Shangri La that James Hilton envisioned? Is What modern travelers expect. That it seems is probably up to the pilgrim. Birnbaum said there are different ways of going to Shambala to me what I found most interesting was the symbolism of it sort of reflects an inner journey

First ascent of Shishapangma - May 2, 1964

"The day was may second nineteen sixty four. A group of Chinese climbers became the first people to reach the summit of Shisha Pong a mountain in Tibet at more than twenty six thousand feet or eight thousand meters. Sheesh oppong is the fourteenth highest mountain in the World Sheesh upon is thought to mean range above the grassy plain the mountain is a part of the Himalayas. And it's located in southern Tibet. Near the border of Nepal. Shisha Pungwe was the last of the eight thousand yrs or mountains more than eight thousand meters in height above sea level to be climbed in June of Nineteen thirty on a Porno. Wyant became the first eight thousand meter peak to be climbed and in nineteen sixty. A team of climbers summited delivery one. That made it the thirteenth eight thousand dollars to be summited making Shisha Palma. The only one that had not yet seen a successful ascent since Tibet in China impose restrictions on travel to the region. Few western climbers had been near. She Chicago people were sent to scout the mountain before the expedition began. The chosen climbers began training. Orders were put in for clothing equipment and food and early in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. An expedition of one hundred ninety five people was put together. The team. Included experienced mountaineers climbed Mount Everest as well as less experienced climbers it also included scientists journalists photographers and medical workers among others on March eighteenth. The expedition set up base camp north of the peak at around five thousand meters above sea level by April twenty. First the final assault camp was pitched just below the summit. There were thirteen people in the summit party including expedition leader. Xiujing deputy leader of the Assault Party Chong Chunyan and Wong Fu who took part in the first ascent of Mount Everest via the north face but only ten people took part in the final assault since three people were dealing with altitude sickness on the morning of May second. They reached the summit not long after they made it to the top. They began their descent back to the final assault camp over the next several decades. More people attempted to summit the mountain. The next ascent of Shisha Pong did not happen until nineteen eighty when the mountain was open to foreign teams the first winter ascent of the peak took place in two thousand and five otherwise hundreds of people have made it to the main summit of Shisha PA as of twenty eighteen thirty one people have died on Shisha Palmer. Some of those deaths were caused by avalanches falls altitude sickness and fluid accumulation in the lungs caused by sending to high altitudes

How to Recognize and Avoid Common Thinking Traps - Part 2

"Do you remember the last time you went down the rabbit hole with worry tumbling down and down until it felt like all was hopeless and unfair? I do it's a situation. We all find ourselves in from time to time. Welcome back to savvy psychologist. I'm your host Dr J. Wu and every week I'll help you meet life. Challenges with evidence based research a sympathetic ear and zero judgment. Our brains are designed to look for problems and anticipate threats. We can't blame them for sometimes going overboard. But we can't talk about certain mental snares and patterns that our brains can get into so we can be better prepared to get out of those thinking traps in part one of this two part series. We talked about three unhelpful. But all too common patterns that our thoughts can fall into that included black and white thinking it which is where you see things as one way or the other with no shades of gray we also about jumping to conclusions where you convince yourself that something is true despite not having any evidence and of course the mental filter where you only look for evidence that supports your beliefs knowingly or not you can stop struggling and find balance if you learn to catch yourself when you start forgetting about middle grounds time traveling in mind reading or acting like an overzealous defense lawyer now today in part to. Let's look at three more common thinking traps that. Keep US hooked to the struggle. This trap number four emotional reasoning. I feel so embarrassed I must have made a fool of myself. My hands are shaking. My stomach is a nuts. I must be totally not ready for this conversation. I feel so blah about this project. It's probably not even worth pursuing. Our emotions are powerful guides. A sense of foreboding can warn us of danger. A burst of joy can reaffirm a relationship. And sadness can tell us where our spiritual priorities lie but sometimes we end up reading too much into emotions. Imbuing them with more meaning than they were supposed to convey for example. Just because you feel embarrassed doesn't mean you actually made a fool of yourself. We often judge ourselves more harshly than other STU stuttering a line in the wedding toast or making Conversational Faux. Pas with a stranger might send heat rushing to your cheeks that automatic response reflects your body's knee jerk reaction and not necessarily your brains careful consideration of the facts so just because you feel embarrassed doesn't mean you actually did something embarrassing. It's a similar story with other emotions and situations just because you don't feel excited about starting a new project at work doesn't mean it's not a one it's worth listening to your emotions as a hint to figure out what makes you hesitate. Perhaps there's some part of the project that isn't aligning with your values or maybe you've taken on too much work overall but dumb right off the whole opportunity yet. Your hearts lack of enthusiasm might not mean. The whole situation is a lost cause tried number. Five is catastrophe icing. It's the end of the world. The whole Party is ruined. I lost all chance at setting things right with this relationship. We've all had these types of thoughts. You accidentally hit reply all on an email. That was supposed to be one on one. You made an awkward comments in front of someone you were hoping to impress you had a messy breakup and you're worried that you burn bridges. This is what I mean by catastrophies. Being it's taking one bad moment and painting your whole world and future with stark colors. It's making an embarrassing or disappointing molehill into the Mount Everest a failure. Let's put things in perspective. Can you think of anyone else who experienced a less than glamorous moment and survived to tell the tale? How `bout beyond say other Mega Stars? In two thousand seven beyond say tripped and face planted while performing for a huge crowd in Orlando Katy. Perry got stuck on a giant cake and repeatedly failed to get up and had to be carried off stage. Fergie didn't get to use the bathroom before performance and let's just say the adrenaline probably didn't help her hold it while a huge crowd watched that strangely growing dark spots on her pants. Yikes what do you think was going on in these stars? Minds in those moments beyond say could've thoughts or that's it. I ruin my flawless reputation of elegance and Glamour. Fergie could have thought well. My career is ruined. It wouldn't be hard to think like that when thousands of people have washed you mess up but these ladies kept going today. There's still the super successful and admired icons. They've always been it. Turns out that tripping and slipping. We're not the only things they've done in public. They've also put out some hit songs. So when you get up on your own oops moments or heartbreaks a May help to zoom out and see other parts of the picture.

Survivor 39 Preseason Interviews: Vokai Tribe

"Some more interviews from Fiji with the man who went down to get them all with the cast of survivor thirty nine. Please welcome back great friend Joshua Josh how are you. I'm fantastic. We Are we are. We are changing beaches today. We are changing weeks and beaches all in one go. It's such an exciting time here in the IOI preseason. He's in now that it is finally upon us time three day. Three of our interview series days but yes yes. We're going to be hearing. Ah Josh is five interviews with the alphabetical first half of the vote try. That'll be Jamal Janet and Jason. Yeah a lot of Jay's lots of Jay's all the days of the season. Were put on FOCI. I I have noticed that about survivor like if there's two Kelly's Odyssey's in they'll throw both of the Kelly's onto the care. They really don't like they're like I don't care if there's four people with the first name starting with j on the same tribe and none on the other one we don't. We don't need to make this easy for you. We believe your ability to follow along. Yeah survivor never playing. They'd never played the audience like they're dummies right. It's up to them then to figure things out and you're a purple. Oh Kelly Era Boston. Rob Your Z. Yeah exactly all right. So did you like being robbed. See would if you could have done differently if you could go back. Would you change anything. I would change a lot being robbed not high on the list not high on the analyst but we'll see maybe if I play again maybe Boston Rob will be coach and then he released the test on what I should you. Of course we part. One and two of this interview is series with the Leroy tribe. Those were all very fun but Josh we're going to get into the vote Kyw. Try anything you want to say. The name like Giora More Mont because 'cause I know you want to vote yeah doesn't that it's more fun to say that yeah all right. Josh anything big picture about L. Jam focused slowly absolutely I think I said on the Lyra tribe podcasts that and certainly Mike and I talked about it too in the in the podcast we did together. You're going to that beach to Lyra beach like we were just like we were trying very hard not to like crack up in front of the actual contestants really keep a low profile. Oh file and they were not making it easy for us. Boakye was a different story not that it wasn't highly enjoyable to go and check out this tribe in action and they were just actually in action whereas Lyra was lying down in their shelter doing their best to just like stand up comedy us to death the members of Boakye much more taking the game seriously and taking the survival aspect seriously worker worker bees all over buzzing around all over the places aces. They're chopping Bam boo. They were working on their shelter which was already pretty impressive for day to both shelters were pretty impressive for two and just moving around. I and getting things going and working on figuring out how to find like the best supplies that'll help you. Brush your teeth things like that and things like that so that was that was really the experience. Just seeing people already get into like that daily. Grind of survivor living and I think that there are allied. God Really Fun people on this tribe as well but I do think that there's almost like a little bit more of like a serious mindedness. Maybe to some of these people so I I thought that that was an interesting distinction that I kind of felt that way about a lot of these people individually anyway and to see that that division between the two tribes is one is sort of like the really whimsical group then the other group that isn't just like stone cold serious but they were just like kind of getting to work and there's a lot of work to be done out. There and we ourselves have have a lot of work to do right now all right up. I is going to be Dan Josh show. What can you tell us about Damn yes. Dan is a talent manager. Originally from New York is currently in. La as he'll tell you he's had a few brushes with survivor in the past few near casting incidents himself off your definition of winning that I think is going to be different from your definition of winning. Hill articulate that in the interview that we did but he'll also he'll chart history with how he got into his industry. How he got into his his particular position within his industry. there will be some stories about soda that I think will will will be ironic in the light of another interview coming up later in this ferry podcast so we'll just we'll touch those two things back when we get to the moment but other than that let's turn it over to. Dan as again mother Corner Office. Dave really done well by either. I'm Josh Josh. I'm Dan Nice to meet you. Grab a seat. Join me in my very fancy. They love it lovely cubicle the SPIEL. I'll give you a no hands on the table. Yes because otherwise otherwise you are free to do anything and everything you're heading to yeah you can do that. I mean like the Canary can tell people Wisconsin on as he banged his head on. That's my God Dan yes. What are you doing out here. What am I doing out here. What I'm doing here here I guess is the way I've the way I've come to it. Now is like my Mount Everest right like in the last you know. This is my thing that have read about. It was really cool. In the last twenty years there have been five five thousand people who climb to the top of Everest. Both there have been what less than five hundred sixty you played this game and I guess there's less than thirty seven or thirty seven eventually won it right so it's I think we look for challenges in life and I have no interest in frostbite and oxygen deprivation. Well maybe this and then like maybe helpers whereas zero no telling you frostbite oxygen deprivation. I've watched those documentaries. No you're going on. This is my Mount Everest. This is my this is my kind of challenge. Calendar fits. Everything about who I am and how I lived in what I've done and it's just to me is like that's it. This is the this is the amount I want to climb this mountain yeah so tell me who who you are. What you've done that makes this your Everest then a lot of the last twenty years I run a talent management company actors and and and did it from. I did the famous you know you were attorney thinking that you'd be you know maybe entertainment trying to clients conciliatory kind of thing and you'd be their protector and you're just shuffling paperwork in. WanNa kill yourself and so you know did the famous quit that and got a job you know unbeknownst to me where the first they had to do was. I was told that those to hold every floor the three floors of this building have a fridge in has you know free it's snapple and diet coke and coke and seven up and diet seven up and in Red Bull anti-rebel a great. She's like the storerooms there so each fridge has them like I'm putting that shit in the fridges so yeah to start and then come back when you're done and how's he really didn't give it about what you've done before this business yeah but yes. I've been doing that for twenty years and coaxing frigid exactly how having and move I just. I'm so good at that why you think they would have promoted me by now. I just love the way that the the temperature is always fill the bottles Donald Alternative label facing you get a job job at some point though they're going to believe in me and give me a shot okay so they gave you a shot event. They gave me a shot pretty quickly and the funny thing is the place that I did that. I left and came back to but now I own it so it is pretty neat to be the guy in the office. Talk about planning the flag and the summit. That's very cool. I am in the office in which I had to put a semi ripe banana and a copy of USA Today on the desk of twenty years ago. It does really when you wake up in the morning. That's gotTa feel good. It is really neat to go to that is a nice big office with a huge massive deck and that's pretty rare and so yeah it feels feels really good is it's. It's been a fantastically successful ride and and I think you know my father gave me a great piece of advice but you know you take your twenties figuring out what you WanNa do in your thirties getting really really good at it in your forty s making lots of money. Doing it and you're getting out of it yeah so I'm in I'm in the I'm in the thirty. s doing very get about getting the next decade you make a Fortune Ottaway fortune and then you've got six years to figure out how to make money got plenty of your the window is coming all right yeah so you're you're enjoying what you're doing. Love what I'm doing but you're also enjoying taking a break from it for a couple of weeks at least a couple of months. It's forty five days when lose it's a little terrifying. I mean definitely the the only fear I have isn't isn't losing per se but his losing and not having purposeful existence I have to find a new purposeful existence post vote which I do not anticipate but the post merge jury vote as perfectly fine right as this probably for most people though I anticipate and expect to vinyl three and family visit family visits a big highlight for me because they've allowed me to have my thirteen year old son. My family visit shows history. They've had a minor who needs it to be traveled with. Someone be the van. He's a he. We've watched it a massive survivor fan and we've watched it since he was four dream and so he's gotta hit the loved ones. I mean if I can somehow tell people that look honestly vote me. I thought me out that don't vote me out that night. Get into eight or nine lead us to. I don't care just get me to eight or whatever eight seven whatever number that is. That's a very big you know when you have the visualize where you want to be a big visualization for him running out from behind the bamboo who in the you know it's a big thing for me so excited about that. How did all of all of your work lead to survivor to this being the challenge. If you've been a fan of the show for a long time and the funny thing was that first stocking the fridge job I wasn't a kid you know so I was twenty eight right and and that was the first year of survivor yeah and so we both started together you know humble beginnings of the my first year was not quite as Momentus as survivors but I've I've literally watched the show you know grow and change as I've grown in change has been kind of interesting in different ways but so I've been a fan ever since and I think it was a combination of just different life events where you know talking to the TV screen for the fourteenth. I've just just apply for this thing and finally life you know. It looked like why aren't applying for this this thing and funny enough we had taken a vacation in Fiji partly welcome back. I know but partly because they had filmed here and so I think part in the back of my mind I didn't go to I I don't know where we are and have no idea where you are but in the back of my mind I think it was like wondering why they started to hint that they're saying I think it was the second time they filmed here. So I came here. Maybe the third three years ago and three years ago I would have been probably the first year that they were right to the season second against season they filmed here and I think indicated they were coming back or there was blogging or whatever so we took vacation here and it was so nice like okay because I think I had a little bit fear of I don't WanNa go to Cambodia and like I don't WanNa be bitten by. It was rough out there. I mean there are parts of that's not the advantage of their lords.

Norwich stun Manchester City with thrilling 3-2 win against Premier League champions

"Hutchison joins me as we talk about a busy Saturday in the premier league well as much as Norwich place tonight after that massive result darn against Manchester City for the canaries with a win who would have thought it. I just have to you know oh pay homage to our lovely backdrop tonight on the River Thames. Look at this Hammersmith Bridge doesn't get much better than this. Unless of course he goes to tower bridge. Let's get because it's GonNa look like it's is probably not going to get better than that a win against the champions given the injuries that they've had as well. Did you see this. Did you see this coming because I've I have no mindset you all day long I believe but I tell you what I did. See it coming after about fifteen minutes when they approach the game with lows of arrogance Man City. I think they thought I think pep thought this. She's going to be easy three points. We'll just turn up play football. We'll keep hold of the ball will pay Loza possession based football will just play between the lines and score some goals. We'll go back with three points. It never walk walk that it definitely did not work. That's what I mean. Kudos enormous because what we thought was the fact that wants Man City scored. I want that goal the floodgates it would have opened but for somehow they still weren't able to break down. Why is that do you think they're missing a certain emmerick report as well there that probably would have helped them? Oh I think so I think along with probably one or two of their best player LaPorte la season. It was terrific. an emergent is one of the best center often world football so yes. He's going to be a massive miss. I still thought though because I've covered PEPs teams over the years I remember when he was at Barcelona and how much go rhino planes a holding midfielder played him center off on the same. We'll have you Martinez at Buyin so I actually thought you to play on Dino's center off the former Rhodri so that might be a pet might do down the line but you looked at automatically today and Johnstone's and they looked as was on the never played a game of those two especially were all over the place and just speaking on that LaPorte injury of course we know that is going to be a timely injury that do you think it will end up costing city the title especially given how Liverpool are going. It's a worry because listen mindset. You're all filled full superstar so you can identify any given time who you think might be Miss Kevin Lebron's last season but still won the league and still performed at a high level Aguire Heyzer to play number Games what you take out the poll where I I think he's one of the best center off do brings balance being left foot center off plan on that left side also plant life backing play as a third sent off as well so you take him at the equation on all of a sudden Muncie. It sounds strange to say still look a little bit short defensively well interesting. You say that then because remember this is Matt cities. I lost in the primarily since January incredible run an incredible stat that so given the fact that with everything that you just said and this LaPorte injury is it. Are they going to be to shell shocked. Do you think it to go on a run. That's again yeah. It'd be very interesting to have been a fly on the wall in the dressing room. Afterwards pen going ballistic. His players have just said this is a warning. This is a war and you can't any teams for granted or or the Badeah chewed or a touch of arrogance. It's nice to have a environment because it makes you play one. That makes you be confident but you can't take your position. Especially someone. Knowledge is a dangerous underdog because they've got players like Tim O. Cookie and can't who I think's going to be a superstar player they can hurt you at any given time but no one really soldiers coming. I think best case scenario thought I think people thought would win the game. Maybe nausea my goal to and give them a fright but the paper is going to be very interested in the tomorrow morning just before we move on from this. Let's just touch on March for because like you said this was definitely not a result anybody would have predicted voted for them. You know the manager even saying that beating city would be like climbing Mount Everest without any oxygen but they've done it. Can they build from this because as well a lot of people didn't even pick them to survive this primarily season Norwich Fan please. You'd ask Donyell faulk on never ever to change Shange always because you went to Anfield and I was sick and tired side of the press over the weekend call knowledge naive because they went to onfield outplayed Liverpool for probably thirty thirty five minutes of the game but lost by four goals to one so everyone label them naive Econ Hong Kong have this approach against its helps just proved if you style of play and you stick with duck and you Australian your beliefs you can get results against anyone so I just said Kudos Norwich on and a fantastic sean the on them because I'll give them so much confidence because then expected to get results against Mansi liberals they can do that two teams in and a random they must be safe life this season all right well next on my list that I have here because it's twenty nine thousand nine. We use technologies over phones now Liverpool. That's definitely somewhere that you know very well and hold dear to your heart up against Newcastle your hometown team Newcastle giving Liverpool bit of scare in the beginning but Liverpool as many would have expected expected on some how did what matches the city did not be was not able to do and just came absolutely roaring back shocked to unbelievable strike from jetro volumes uh-huh on his weaker right foot as well and smashed into the stanchion and all of a sudden you think in this is GonNa be a test of Liverpool golf with the European champions. They've gone arrogance about them. Where that that just swatting teams away? It doesn't matter if you poke the more you or your so of small scoring early goal at Anfield especially with the two years does this season last sees anything because of the Champions League I think so I think than being European champions now give them the air confidence arrogance where they believe her Jergen KLOPP speak to the press over the weekend in the UK. Hey saying he believed these players but now the play is believe in themselves which is huge on a mentality front because now that go beyond against Newcastle go beyond against anyone he wanted primitive and all of a sudden you poke menu and you smile at them and all of a sudden that's helped players. Just go through the gays and people like Maan who's an incredible. I mean what's He got twenty three goals in twenty nine unreal all of a sudden looking at superstar player. Everyone was talking about Mosala being the superstar fun Daikin Alison even though he didn't play today that building just such a rich squad where you think they all start contend believable with Muncie could be there yeah. What are you touched on Saudi-omani and of course like you were saying everyone has been talking about most most especially after you know the records he has he the and the record breaking man he has been livable so you think that Saudi-omani is a top man I do because I I look at him and I watch an I an analyzes attitude and he's he's strong durable? He's never injured even when he is ill play with Knox. those managers are priceless. the way he plays lays full of energy is hard as nails. He's he's quick dynamic. He makes things happen with support. FEE can run in beyond without the ball is now getting these goals does. He's getting his assists so when you when you analyze Liverpool you think who would they miss the most probably Saudi-omani all right well. Let's move on now to Chelsea because because what a result up against a team that we know wolves can be a very tough team to beat especially at home but you know. Can we get a hip hip Hooray for the Youth Steve Chelsea something that you know I want to say everyone has sort of pooh-poohed on in recent time saying young manager too many young players. They don't quite have have the experience to really go deep in the Premier League. It's GonNa take them at least another year or two but this is looking like a brilliant squad that really can threaten some of the other teams on Credit Franklin part especially Jody Morris so I know quite well it was working beyond the scenes academy level a few years ago before you went to Dhabi so he knows the young players coming through and there's many Moore's boy call James is not it's not really featured just yet who's going to be or could be a superstar so the way francs been brave. You'll have to say that it would be very easy if you're young manager to go with tried and tested rested experienced players but Franks put to one side he still got a good blend is still got got. The comeback who played a part in today's game were injured. He still contact the comeback but credit emmys playing the young boys. He's playing Mason. Mount is playing some more who got a goal today. He's playing Abraham do get in gold and top joint top-scorer and so you know frank is being a very brave manager tuck going in a in a club like Chelsea wherever it's always WANNA come yesterday. There's never been any for room for manages to try and maneuver in the past so yeah. There's a very very good job Jodi Jodi. Let's think of it on that man that you allege that you mentioned just last having Abraham wow three goals today that we know that hat trick that he's going to want to celebrate but I'm going to call it four goals because he's got yeah. He got the job of making the point. When you score three you might as well go with four escort goal any lean accounting methods it just take the fall the four hundred run put it up on social media later match go but it you know I was I was in in Istanbul covering the supercup and it was it was Jerus- dot dot dot game and it was what was going to be very interesting to see which way Frank Lenzi because they bring different aspects of that game as you root very good on the ball he can hold the ball he's into midfield as dream but tammy now is starting to become and he's not quite there yet but he's nearly the finished article where is hold a place getting better? He's very quick a spinning in beyond but more important getting goals are you surprised with the way in which she's just been improving and seems to be going from strength to strike because it was thought that was flaws in his game wealth will the whole to play our thought jude was better player but he was quicker than Jerusalem is an unwieldy down the line getting these calls which is most important for centerfolds. You know you can have all the build up. Play you like banging in the goals. People will start asks the question when especially when you're young plan your and a Chelsea side as I said I've got no take time to try and grow you go in there straightaway and you're banging in the goals and you're playing well. He's in a good rich painful from a rich vein of form there at Chelsea. Let's move on to Manchester United the the roller coaster. I have to laugh because I know you watch that game closely on paper Win for Manchester United up against Leicester who everyone said we're really and truly favorites going into this one you know ahead of them in the premier my league table but it really was not a performance that I would say you could take confidence from it was a strange game commentary on the game and it was almost aside Lester went into the favorites because of the quality players on paper but it's almost like they tried to kick dumpster united and Monday night responded really well Scott mcdonagh a real shift and it was probably their lead on the day he's only twenty two and he was he was Marshall Not Midfield and he was getting around everywhere. He was leading from the front. He was very aggressive. Although Daniel James had another superb game he was very lively off the left hand side rash was a little bit in and out penalty goal but still doesn't look like it doesn't look like a readymade centerfold or so much like learning these game off the left hand side and all of a sudden being thrown is a centerfold she still learning so think to analyze the game. It was one where normally manages try to analyze the performance and that's what they want. A thought today was a case of Oregon social just wanting the three points. That's what you needed just to give them a little bit of confidence and may be in the games come up with. You've got some really till fixtures. Maybe the three points against Leicester will probably not listed down a peg or two and give the money funds underplays a little bit more confidence. Do you think let's run out steamed. You pick them to run out of steam. I know this is a topic that we spoke about a lot when they ended up winning the primarily because again you know they started off so well and nobody picked it to last. This is another you know season where less to have started very well and we see the troubles with some of the other bigger clubs the Monday night is the Chelsea's having their slip-ups even spurs here and there on Arsenal so do do you pick them to to go deep is everyone has expected. I think so think my two teams I think would be calm unless that to try and get close to the top six. I think wolves are not just because of the loss today today but they've got Europe League football which is always difficult on a small squad. I think it's too much for them. but I was quite surprised at how Lester started the Game Brandon Brendan I think might want to see changes weight changes system. He played a forty three one way in the last two weeks. He's played a four one four one and makes Lester be more on the front foot a little bit defensive today a little bit on the puck for a little bit so of an order of Monday night but I think if let's go that time again and Brendan how again to to play assistant ultra and win the thing you'd have been one or two things

Searching For a Lost Maya City

"We have contributing correspondent lizzie wade and she went on a hunt for a lost city high lizzy hazara. Can you talk a little bit about your journey of course so we met up in a city called kami thanh in campus and then we drove about seven hours to part of the mexican guatemala border order. That's a little corner that we were staying at this eco lodge. We had guides from that eco lodge who took us into the reserve montessori so we went up i in a motorboat for a few hours when we set up a base camp but basically from there we were kayaking and hiking in the jungle and it was extraordinarily difficult. If there is no trails carved the guides would michetti through through the jungle but everything has fines. Everything is so different from each other. There's so much information and all the plants are so yeah heterogeneous and there's just like so much stuff around you that it's hard to even interpret individual things who is very easy to grab onto a tree that was covered in spines and not really even realize until your hand was also covered in spines they had to cut every out of the way every step i've been in some pretty remote places before but never a place where humans really hadn't been for for decades or potentially centuries and that was very very hard and it felt like the environment was just pushing us pushing pushing us out you know and making it impossible in the rivers were also completely covered in in brush and had to be the machete from the kayaks and late. It was really intense okay. Should i spoil it. Say whether or not you found missing city yeah i mean i think it's hard to talk about it. If we don't say what happened yes so spoilers. You did not find a long last jedi. Wha- what were you looking for. I went to chapas mexico wisdom archaeologist gal just who were looking for a city called sock belong which was the capital of the condone my there's two groups named <unk> condone one one exists today and one is pre columbian maya group when we were looking for this previous maya groups last capital sok-bom means the white jaguar and the lacandon built it basically to hide from spanish invaders which say successfully did for over over two hundred years. Wow what what's the timeline here and i guess i should ask. What century are we him. Yes so the spanish i come to mexico coach central mexico in the early fifteen twenties so to not mind which is now mexico city the aztec capital falls in fifteen twenty one and that's a pretty straightforward holmquest story aztecs were an empire the spanish also empire or wanted to be so they over that all that outland but when you get to the maya world. It's really really different because there's not really a centralized control. Every city is independent of each other and they're all in this elaborate web of allies and enemies. This finished can't come in conquer one city like <unk> or whatever and then everything passes is to them. They have to do it one at a time getting back to this missing city sock belong the lack unknown live there but they didn't always live there. They actually remove their city to this harder define location yeah though i condone lived on this island in lake miramar which is also a a were attacked by the spanish at least once. Maybe a couple of times. I can't quite remember and they had held out but they knew they weren't going to be able to do that forever. So preemptively the late fifteen hundreds they pack up move really deep into the jungle and built this other city called soccer mom but eventually cycle was taken by <hes> the spanish. Can you talk about how that happened by this point. It's the sixteen ninety s the english colonies in the u._s. Are firmly established at this point. I think harvard university has has been founded. This is very much the world we live in now most of the quote unquote conquest that are going on right now are not huge military invasions asians. It's more proselytizing so these two priests are like we have to convert the people of south <unk> devoted to the idea they hire these local maya ed guides who lead them around in circles for five months without them realizing it because the local mayor are so scared of sock belong like the people insect belong have been rating other my <hes> months and months go by of them just like walking around in circles and then finally they realized some things going on and they hired the leader of another local niagara and we don't really know what his motivation was but if you think of the condone being scary and potentially having attacked this town. This guy may have been like whatever ver- enough with this he takes a spanish. They're it's mostly diplomatic. They're not immediately killed. As previous spanish visitors were they convince serve a retinue of the lacombe leaders to come with them to sit in guatemala for more diplomacy basically but on the way they are on the way back almost all <unk> die get sick and die and it sort of clap says and there's not like a big battle this vantage descend on this town of a couple left one hundred thousand of their soldiers and their allied mike holders cycle. I'm gives really easily at that point and then it is is a spanish town for another fifteen twenty years and then everyone is relocated to closer to the pacific coast of water malla which was part of the the spanish colonial policy of it's called reducing might communities so murray by out of where they've always lived in make them live in his new communities where they easier easier control was surprises me then after all of those events is that the location of sack llamas not known yeah. No it surprised me too because it is done some spanish maps. I mean these are like seventeen hundred maps or not satellite abs- you know it was connected to the spanish world for a while but only only for pretty short time so they didn't really have a huge investment in the place when they move people out the jungle stays the jungle like there's not a huge amount of clear cutting so today the location of sucked plum is within this national park in mexico monsoon ways and it's considered an extremely extremely remote part of mexico. There are no trails no roads. Nobody's allowed to live there while you went with a group of archaeologists to try and visit this lost city what what made them think that they could find it and be what would they get out of finding it despite them existing for overlapping with the spanish colonial state for a couple of centuries. There's really no information about what it was like to live in sok-bom or any of the other independent my capitals that existed existed around this time sochua wasn't the only one was but it was the second to last two to be conquered. They wanna know who they were trading with. How connected they were to the outside world. How not connected they were headed they do this. How did they live in such isolation for so long so the reason they thought they could find it is or the method breath <unk>. They used was looking at the spanish documents from the time. After sokolow had been conquered. 'em spanish visitors would go and then they would go other places they would record their roots and how long it took them to travel to different landmarks lakes or rivers or another town's so you can construct a possible zabul arc of locations of the city and basically we were trying to get as close to that as possible so you have your starting point and then they ceo we traveled for seven days you know about how far they went in a circle exactly he's going to be on size herbal and not the other like you can make some inferences and they didn't record it in kilometers or anything that ban measure of distance we would use so you'd have to estimate how far they could walk in a day and it's quite fuzzy but it's a starting point you do have a description of what the spanish a how described cycle on when they arrived yeah it is about a hundred houses which primative adobe so they will not have survived until now there were three community buildings not quite temples but like city halls and those would have had stone foundations and that's what the archaeologists are interested in finding the region today is known for scarlet macaws the sort of iconic red parrots and apparently condone had semi domesticated them in every day at five p._m. They would fly out of the forest land on all the houses and the spanish. I thought that was amazing and so do i do feel like you were able to keep the same pace as the people who had traveled to suck palumbo for you know when you're looking at a previous trips yeah. It's hard to say i mean we weren't hearing oliver stuff. They would have been like did set up base camps. They probably would have been wearing stuff that was really tough to walk around and you know like lots of wool and potentially metal. This is not easy for them either. That was one of the major her things. I was thinking about in the jungle. I don't really care about the spanish confuses blake we i think we pay far too much attention to their experience in history because they're the ones who who got to write it but i was really taken aback by how similar are experience would have been there because of course a lot. Condone knew what they were doing and like we it ends so we we have we were much more similar to the spanish and i felt like if you have a city a few hundred people hiding out in the jungle against a globalizing belies ing empire like it's only a matter of time until they will be found and incorporated into that empire came away thinking that that really wasn't true at all. Oh it was so hard to do this that the conquest of cyclamen basically every other place in the americas was basically the historical accident and a fluke luke. The conquistadors had to rely on locals to help them find the city. Do you think that that's something that the archaeologists are gonna pursue while help was doc vital for the spanish and vital for y'all just now the ones sort of discovery quote unquote that they were able to make on this trip was the classic period read my it ruins which is a thousand years before sock bolom would have been founded but this town in the region knew about some ruins in this little patrick forest that they protect the reserve and they took the archaeologist they are in. It was really amazing. I mean i've seen a lot of unexcavated archeological sites in this was really special one and they never would have known it was there of the local people hadn't been willing to trust them and and tell them about it was tackle on the hard part is that nobody lives in monte. Sicily's there are people who go in there like their firefighters who might know the reserve. There are people who have lived there as refugees like from the guatemalan civil war are a lot of people took refuge there. There are people who know montezuma's ways a little bit better than average person in chapas but because has nobody lives in it. It's just so hard to find those people in it so hard to find the help that you really need to be able to do efficient archaeology. Let's say how far did you travel in all of this. I think we kayaked ninety kilometers in four days. This is a round trip so we went up river forty five kilometers that was already from the base camp. I think a lot of kayaking on in my life the walking was it was really shocking. How slow the walking. It was about a kilometer an hour which you know if i'm walking in a city i go ten minutes. You know the walking. I think it was like eight kilometers things hype it was it was it was not very long but it felt like we climbed mount everest. A lot of archaeology is don don with lighter these days using radar from planes to find hidden structures. Would that be helpful here in this area. It could potentially work. I think it it'd be really great to do it over months away. I know the archaeologist would love to do that to national geographic funded this huge light our survey of a very similar place in guatemala all and it revealed tens of thousands of of structures that archaeologists didn't know about the thing about lighter is that it's pretty expensive <hes> and it takes a lot of coordination and also when you do light. Are you still have to go out to the potential site and see it so it doesn't totally save you from the explorer our jungle adventure that we that we had one of these archaeologists going to do next. Are they going to go back. They are going to go back which i found a little bit mind boggling wing but they're really committed to exploring this area of chapas <unk> swiss and what stood was a give them some information about how how fast the spanish could travel like. Maybe it was a little slower than we thought. Maybe dot com is closer to these landmarks. If you have to go so slow a lot of the information on the satellite maps about the exact routes of the rivers turned out not to be totally right so it made making a more accurate map much easier and i think the most important thing it did probably was bringing these archaeologist in closer contact with the communities down there both the communities who who live in the towns and the guides themselves who know the reserve very well it takes a lot of work to to build a kind of trust you need to have people both agreed to show you what they know especially since archaeology in mexico as in so many places is often connected to the state and official narratives of off the country and potentially land expropriation and things like that people can be very wary of archaeologists for pretty good historical reasons yeah yea so you know you really have to spend a lot of time. They're showing them that you care about these places and you care about the current people's connection to those places in you're going to respect. That's

I think nine scoops of soil that he put into the box six and it became one of the most well-studied samples of the Apollo mission she says geologist named John would at the Smithsonian noticed white flex of rock in the soil which he identified as Iraq type called a north of site and include him into the Moon's ancient past and this casinos quite a leap of imagination but he proposed that the whole of the moon had at one time in the past somewhere close to four and a half billion years ago been almost covered with a global magma ocean ocean of lava and so this was a revolutionary idea at the time because people had thought that the moon had formed cold and so it completely changed their idea about how the moon farmed how the terrestrial planets form like the Earth is well. You know really changed a lot about our. Our understanding of planetary science but WADHWA has a second and more personal reason to appreciate this sample. I met my husband because of this rock. My husband is Scott Parazynski. He was with NASA as an astronaut for seventeen seventeen years from nine hundred ninety two two thousand nine and after his retirement from NASA he actually he's a mountaineer as well and he had always aspired to climb Mount Everest Scott's boyhood heroes were Neil Armstrong and the climber Edmund Hillary who made the first confirmed affirmed incentive Everest with his partner tenzing norgay in honor of them he wanted to take a moon rock from Apollo eleven to the top of Everest and to bring back and never some rock at the time Wadhwa was the chair of the NASA committee that grants access to the samples for scientific purposes but this request she says was definitely out of the ordinary and I just remember it because it was a really funny discussion the committee hey what happens if that moon rockfalls Donna Crevasse you know and and not that race Scott would be. Going Down with them with that moon rock of but Scott made it to the top Wadhwa never met him and moved on from the lunar sample committee but then a year or two later she saw a friend suggestion pop up on facebook. You might know Scott Parazynski and I respect took said hey how did your expedition go and did you return the moon rock to NASA and he sent me this note back saying well. Actually I didn't send the Moon Rock back to NASA. I actually sent it to the International Space Station along with an ever summit rock and if you ever happened to be in Houston I would love to meet you and thank you for making that possible and so I happened to meet him and that was that I was that that's how we met and so Neil Armstrong's last minute scoop of moon-dust brought to people together here on earth and upturned our understanding of how the moon and the earth itself got here. There's something in there about one small scoop for A.

Second, not Everest is more than a mountain. You're climbing a moment of history frozen. Literally. You may remember how mountains are formed through plate tectonics, basically, you have these big landmasses that collide when two landmasses run into each other one pushes into the other rises up in scrunches together. Think about if you have to toyed cars in, you ram them into each other one is going to go on top of the other and rise into the air. That's kind of how Mount Everest was formed over sixty million years ago, the landmass that contains present day India was drifting, north towards Eurasia this Indian plate acted like a bulldozer and kept pushing and pushing in the land, crumbled, and folded to create the Himalayan mountain range. Not Everest is on the border of Nepal and China. It is just one of several mountains in the Himalayas. But it is the most notable this is like the Shaquille O'Neal of mountains both because of its impressiveness Thomas. And on your way to the top of mount.

As to the name, it was called Everest after the distinguished surveyor, general of India under, whose direction the triangulation had been carried out one result of which was the discovery of the mountain from the Indian side and Nepal.

It looks therefore as if man by attempting, more was actually making himself capable of cheating more by straining after the highest he's increasing his capacity to attain it in this measuring of themselves against the mountains, men. In are indeed very like puppies. Crawling about and testing their capacities on their surroundings crawling up onto some obstacle tumbling back discomfited but returning gallantly to the attack and it lasts triumphantly surmounting it thus. Do they find out what they can do and how they stand in relation to their surroundings? Also by exercising in stretching, their muscles, and faculties to the full, they actually increase their capacity men are still only in the puppy stage of existence. We are prone to think of ourselves very grown up. But a really, we are only in our childhood in the latest discussions as to the period of time, which must have elapsed since I life appeared upon this earth, a period of the order of a thousand million years was named, but of that immense period, man has been in existence for only a quarter or half a million years. So the problem. Ability is that he is still long years before him? And must be now only in his child in his puppy, HUD. We certainly find that as he inquisitive looks about his surroundings and measure himself against them. He is steadily increasing his mastery over them in the last five hundred years record after record has been beaten men have ventured more and shown more adaptability and sterner hearty, hood and endurance than ever before. They have ventured across the ocean circumnavigated the globe reached the polls, risen into the air, and it can be only a question of time a few months or a few years before they reached the highest summit of the earth. What then some will ask suppose -ment do reach the top of Mount Everest what then soup? Pose. We do stab the fact that man has the capacity to surmount the highest summit of his surroundings of what good is that knowledge. This is the kind of question promoters of the enterprise continually have to answer. One reply is obvious the site of climber struggling upwards to the supreme pinnacle will have taught mental lift their eyes unto the hills to raise them off the ground and direct them if only for a moment to something pure, and lofty, and satisfying to that inner craving for the worthy est which all men have hidden in their souls. And when they see men, thrown back at first, but venturing again, and again to the assault to with faltering footsteps, and gasping breaths. They at last reached the summit, they will thrill with pride. They will no longer be obsessed with the thought of what. Mites. They are in comparison with the mountains, how insignificant, they are beside their material surroundings. They will have a proper pride in themselves, and a well grounded faith in the capacity of spirit to dominate material and direct practical result flow from this increasing confidence, which man is acquiring in face of the mountains. A century ago Napoleon's crossing the Alps was thought an astounding feat during the last thirty years, troops and Indian troops have been moved about the Himalayas in all seasons and crossed passes over fifteen thousand feet above sea level in the depth of winter on the Gilgit, frontier into trawl and into bet. Neither cold nor snow nor wind stopped them in winter or in summer in spring or autumn. They have faced the Himalayan passes, and they have been able to negotiate them successfully because of their increased knowledge of men's capacities, and of the way to overcome difficulties that constant wrestling with mountains in all parts of the world during the last half century, as given the activities of the alpine club have produced direct practical results in the movement of troops, in the Himalayas, more still follow. When men have proved that they can cement, the highest peak in the Himalayas. They will take heart to climb other peaks and become more and more at home in that wonderful region extending for nine two thousand miles from the roof the world in the north and west to the borders of Burma, and China in the south and east and containing more than seventy peaks over twenty four thousand feet in height that is higher than any in the Andes. The second highest. Range of mountains in the world and more than eleven hundred peaks over twenty thousand feet in height, this great mountain region, which in Europe would stretch from Kolade to the Caspian, his one vast mine of beauty of every very description and a mine of beauty has this advantage over a mind of material wealth that we can never exhaust it, and not only can we never exhausted. But the more we take out the more we find. And the more we give away the richer we are. We may go on digging into a gold mine. But eventually, we shall find there is no gold left. We shall have exhausted, our mind. But we may dig into that mine of beauty in the Himalayas and never exhausted. The more we take the more we shall find richer. Beauty subtler, beauty more ferried beauty. The beauty of mountain form and beauty of pure and delicate color, beauty forest beauty of river and beauty of lake and combined beauty of rushing. Torrent precipitous cliff richest vegetation, and overtopping snowy summit. And when we have discovered these treasures, and made them, our own, we can actually increase their value to ourselves by giving them away to others by imparting to others the enjoyment, which we have felt we shall have increased our own enjoyment. We cannot expect those who are I engaged in climbing. Mount Everest to have the time or inclination to observe and describe the full beauty there is they will be set on, overcoming the physical difficulties, and they will be so exhausted.

But when they have pioneered the way and beaten down path authors will ward, leisurely, follow after many even of these may not be able to express in words or picture the enjoyment. They have felt and be able to communicate it to others. They may not be given to public speech or writing, and may have no capacity for painting, the flame of their enjoyment, may be kept sacred and hidden within them. Add, it may be only the privacy of colloquy with some kindred soul that the white glow of their enjoyment might ever be shown. But others there may be who have the capacity for making the world at large share with them. Some little of the joy, they have felt who can make our nerves tingle and our blood course, quicker, our is uplift themselves and are.

"Twenty nineteen has been one of the deadliest climbing seasons on Mount Everest in part because of overcrowding and you can add climate change now to the list of problems on the world's highest peak Tenzing, Choi Gil sherpa, was part of a National Geographic Society. Expeditions studying the rapidly melting glaciers on the mountain this year. He also has deep family ties to Everest. He's the grandson of sherpa, who is the last surviving member of, sir. Edmund Hillary's team the first to reach the summit in nineteen. Fifty-three Tenzing, welcome in before we talk about your climate research tummy. What your grandfather has told you over the years about the early days of climbing Everest when my grandfather was quite young, I think, younger than me, actually, that's when he went to the expedition, and then since my Jeff's, I have heard a lot of stories like how they used to use wooden logs to walk through the crevasses and how difficult it was at that time when they didn't. Have much, but for him it was like a normal job, but he didn't know the caliber of what was going on, like, that would be like the highest peak, and then that would be the first season, he didn't have that in mind, but rather, like it was a regular job, and it was a job that could be for the family, and he did it for twenty years. And he now says that the tourism on the mountain has been good for sherpas, but it's bad for the gods. What do you think he meant by that? So he actually means because we share a Buddist and for us, we treat mountains as goddesses and lakes, rivers, everything has a meaning and we believe there's a God, that resides on them. And before there was a people used to think that when you use to walk on the mountains. It's like walking in God. So that might shorten your life or something. Bad might have induced, people didn't use to go to the mountains and still like he wants to hit. He's going more to us like how like the tourism industry has flourished in Khumbu, and there's like a lot of tourists coming in. But then you see every year, the how there are a lot of avalanches how the, the mountain response back and then they lot of people dying. So he sort of guess idea that with too much tourism going on in which tumors commercializing going on that we have forgotten our roots. Olympia will have a saying that, that is the God's getting angry. You are a a researcher and you study climate change. I, I wonder from your experience there on the mountain recently, what you've noticed has as climate change affected the mountain. Yes, there's a lot of glaciers here and it's actually much more sensitive than other parts of the reason. So a one point five degrees, rise in the temperature in the whole globe. That would mean like Trist more or maybe twice more in, in case of the Himalayas, so the glacier, there are much, much more sense. Looking at the data is one thing..

I'm annoyed by I mean, you've come to the right place. Always finding water amass. Of course, Ramaz would remind us a good another story that would must and void you has left the solar system. Yes. Yes. Yes. Again, the voyage has left the solar system of realized there's another new story that seems to come up all the time. Like, it just seems like a perennial story is this not sorted. Why are we still having the story reported look, and that is remeasuring the exotic hot of Mount Everest. There's always some project or team or group of people who want to definitively once in for oh measured. The true exact hut of Mount Everest. And I almost has to be mad inference because no one cares about the huts of the other mountains. This is always the one. So. Oh, I've seen in the news this week that a Nepalese team is going to measure Mount Everest amid concerns it may have shrunk. Following the recent earthquake into PO but Sola about how there's never been like a Nepalese team that has measured the of Matt ever. So the time has come Napoles sending a group of expert climbers to remeasure the hajj of Mount Everest today, by the way. There's no suggestion that it's not the highest mountain in the world. I was glad to say the word concern in that article there, I cannot muster up within me concern for a mountain like it just I don't have that emotionally within me. And that must mean the next highest mountain is really close in height, and maybe it's trunk. But that's not the thing either. So this is all just an excuse. Yeah. And this is once they successfully reached the summit, they will use new global navigation satellite system that can send readings about it's hot to their colleagues at base camp that that is getting to the top. And then using satellites that sounds like someone wanted to climb Everest. But they won't need it to us. Their business expense account to do it. Right. It's like, oh, this is for science. We've got to get to the top because some huge budget this project. They believe the divorce will allow them to accurately measure, the heart of Everest to the centimeter putting any uncertainty firmly to rest centimeter. Okay. Maybe I'm an idiot here. But surely any will temperature changes must 'cause Everest to expand or contract more than a centimeter. And also, I'm pretty sure this snow at the top. There is rock. I guess they're going to have to dig down through a snow to the row. Yeah. Measure from the rock. I don't know exactly how they decide the hospital rock and the highest bit of rook presumably is like a millimeter higher than the bits of roof to the left and the right of and his if someone's always wanting to touch that point put the GPS on that point is that getting chipped up in or I'm thinking like when you walk on the beach, and you see those guys who just balance a little tower of rocks at the top, you know, surely someone's going to do that on top of Everest. I need to know. But it has to be true. That there's thermal expansion and contraction of Everest's that cannot be true. I know anything about physics, and I'd be shocked to hear if the tolerance on that is less than a centimeter. The has to case you think something is big as Mount Everest would even be affected by like the moon and tides Todd's in land so Scholley it's been pulled up push down as the moon does the business to. Yeah. This sounds like a ridiculous boondoggle. That's what this is. They just though we need to buy a new satellite..

Over time as you get out there and explore and move into it, you're still you're still moving towards a really, really high goal, and it's just gonna lift you big time and I'll tell you there's a lot of Ryan's out that at listening right now who have a faraway Mount Everest. But you in the meantime, can still get in your sweets. While I've said this one hundred times a one really clarify this. You can do five, six, seven, eight, nine ten things in your sweet spot.

It frees you up because as long as you're using what you do best to do, what you love to do most well, you're in the sweet spot so it moves with you. It moves as you grow.
