Ted talk and she has been featured widely in mainstream media india and south asia. She is a staunch advocate of women's rights and human rights. Globally juelich out. Welcome to the show. Is sonia thank you for having made you to look i. I wanna say that the messages you received from your family and especially your mother growing up or such a tremendous example of female empowerment and a genuine belief in human spirit. You were taught that you only have this life to pursue your dreams and goals and that nothing can get in your way so long as your mind believes it you can achieve it while if every young girl or woman receive this message growing up. What could be accomplished on planet earth. So really really impressed by that. And you've talked a lot about your spiritual beliefs and faith. And i wanna ask you. What is going to remind as you ascend a mountain. do you go into a meditative state. Will you rely on your deep spiritual beliefs and constantly have to retain mindfulness in assessing the physical challenges. Along the way i would imagine. There's a variety of protocols and situational awareness. That is needed. But i'd really like her more from you on that. Because in my estimation this mindset is what separates those who make it to the top and those who unfortunately do not on different stages of climbing i have a different kind of a mindset. I would say that. If i fain like there there might be avalanche. There might be a route wash. That might be bad weather. Something which has detained my plans to climb a mountain. I get into a buddy confrontational mode. Because i am. I'm trained as a soldier. And i had to fight my adversity so at times i started seeing the mountain. Asthma adversity. it happened to me on mount everest. I had to in my second attempt. Also i had to turn back from three thousand feet twice before i made my tent and succeeded so in those two attempts i started challenging everest. That either you can give me death or injury you can go ahead and give me that and i will keep on doing what i'm capable of doing. So sometimes i get into that kind of confrontational mode. Where i see that. Yes the mountain in front of me. Is the obstacle that i have to overcome he. It is an enemy. And i have to fight it with all my might that i have sometimes from vivid me. There are certain sentences accord or something but have support him that just springs up bent. The conditions are really tough. I'm climbing exhausted and the going gets very very tough. I have seen these flashes. Coming from within a volume by Kipling everybody had about displaying very famous swim. If so there was this lions from this point if that some everything is finished and nothing is left to new that still a wasting your head which says hold on so at one time this would hold on just a up in my mind and i just continued. I just held on and kept my foot one foot after another in front official. So that is how it happens sometimes. It is ready spinach with because london's are so beautiful. I get into that meditative state also but i contemplate the nature of life seeing a mountain see a mountain the stance alone so anybody who is strong mighty and wants to rise high. Perhaps in life would be like that alone solitary having his own battles and also facing all kinds of storms videos rain gold snowfall everything but still standing very tall and after that i absolve that seed they also the cloud at times at times it is just sunny so this is how life also is on. Mountain's what i love the most about is that i don't have that usual crowd around me.
Back to the Himalayas with Jeff Rasley
"About jeff. Welcome to the show. Thank you camping. Glad to be here happy. Have you tell us a little bit more about yourself well. I grew up in a small town in northern indiana gauchan. Indiana and i was all set to go off to college when it was time and i ended up dropping out after two days and just didn't feel like that was what i really wanted to do. After having spent my whole long life of eighteen years in school so i went to work in a factory saved up some money and then mom reluctantly drove me to the edge of town. I stuck out my son and he tried to cross country. But i did end up going back to college after my parents told me if i didn't they were going to kill me and i thought okay choices college death. I'll take college and ended up. Really loving academics. At a serious level went to the university of chicago than went to law. School eventually went to seminary so ended up spending a lot of time in the classroom. I'd even taught a few college classes practiced law for thirty years retired. And i suppose what's really brought us together is that i written ten books. Several of which are about what. I call philanthropy trekking in nepal himalayas grew so but is that exactly. What is philanthropy attracting. Yeah it it. Means a combination of fee lows. Which is greek for love and anthropologists philanthropy. Means love of humanity in. So i combine that with tracking. And so i've been to nepal fourteen times in started a foundation over there so i combined tracking with philanthropy led an organiz many groups of truckers and many of which have been involved with the mission of the foundation started which is called the possibility foundation. What exactly does the bassett village foundation do well. It's concentrated in a remote area of eastern nepal. Which is not on any of the popular trekking trails. A set of the first time. I was there which was in two thousand eight. My little group of truckers were only the second group of people from the outside world that had ever visited abilities which was an amazing experience because they were living basically the same way they had for the last five hundred years but anyway the foundation does is. I developed this relationship. Was that village. And we have helped to build a school hydroelectric system water system. Our most recent effort was little health clinic and we also help to rebuild the village which was partially destroyed from two major earthquakes. Back in twenty fifteen the same earthquakes that sarah safari was in when she was tracking mount everest in the last episode so our mission goal is to work with the local people to finance the projects that they would like to bring up their standard of living in terms of education sanitation healthcare those sorts of efforts but all of those projects have been requested by the village not suggested by us the outsiders the funders donors to the foundation members. And the reason for that is. I think it's very important for this. Kind of development work really to be primarily in controlled by the people at supposed to benefit so that we don't develop a kind of dependency mentality so the school the water system the electrical system the villagers build it themselves with their own hands and they own they run it and we just provide financial assistance and expertise. When it's ask for school cool. i was talking to somebody else as well. Today that happened to be working with foundations that affected the same area. About empowering nepali women roller. You should connect us. Sarah safari yeah. She's really cool. Where did you grow up. Like i said in the small town of gauchan. Indiana doesn't seem like there'd be much there in indiana as far as mountains. There are not. I had never climbed a mountain or done. Any sort of high-altitude tracking. Before the first time i went to nepal back in nineteen ninety five and my first experience there was directing the mount everest base camp trail.
FACT SMACK: Spider Edition
"Okay kwong here's how this is gonna work all right. Sebastian gets roughly ten minutes facts to prove that his critter of choice. Spiders are the coolest critters. Okay got it now. These are general spider facts. So sebastian gets to call on any spider. He wants which gives him a lot to choose from. There are like roughly forty five thousand species of spiders and to give you a sense of context. Think about an animal that we see all the time or type of animal mammals right there are only about six thousand or so species of mammals that covers literally everything from shrews to wales to rhinos compared to the forty five thousand as of spiders nest so many spy seen mammals. Like it's just where it's at. Now where's that okay. So here's the thing it's not just. How many of them there. It's also where they live. Spiders are out here. Along in here is pretty much everywhere. See this is one of my favorite things about Planet earth is basically. Wherever i go. I can find a spider because they are spiders living everywhere from the inter titles on right at the ocean's edge to forests to dryest desert's where they build sand tunnels under the sand up on mountains not as regular mountains all the way up to the slopes of mount everest and everything in between a hold on he just said there are spiders that live on mount everest. Oh yeah clung. There's a famous one up. There called the himalayan jumping spider. They live up to twenty two thousand feet or sixty seven hundred meters above sea level. They are the spider the animal that is arguably the highest permanent resident on earth. They're living in the penthouse on our planet incredible. I wouldn't have thought i wouldn't have thought spider. I would've thought something else. Yeah i know me neither. But i love this because even its species name omni superstars is kind of perfect for talking smack. The omni superstar means stands above everything because it is literally above us at all points of the day of the night of the year. Watching down a bunks. All be lower animals. Identify lower animal. You know about that spider. Maybe your soul mate. All right what else do you got supplier okay. So the one that sent me over the spider edge wong. Did you know that there are multiple types of spiders who live at least part-time underwater. Like i'm talking seawater freshwater. They're out there. I mean you must find that amazing because you can barely swim. Wow wow wow. Wow emily everyone else was getting to talk. Smack didn't turn honestly fair but her full fare but herve okay. Okay so anyways. There's this spider that lives underwater called the diving bell spider and they basically make a sifi like underwater dome of air. That's their air pocket. Go there when they need to breathe and the rest of the time they just go out and they bring a little like bubble of air around their lungs which on a spider on the bottom of the abdomen. Bring a bubble of air around with that and they're just walking around underwater. They are catching food under their catching fish catching small insects and their entire life every part of their lifespan from birth to reproduction to death. Okay even i. A person who doesn't think about spiders will admit this incredibly cool that spiders are really living all over. The place got range qualm. They got rained. I don't mean like as a group of species. Some spiders legit have ranged. in fact many spiders can fly. I mean technically it's called ballooning but they're flying get out what they'll do is they. Basically will just release silk into the wind and it goes up and basically turns into like a kite. But when you're a light enough to be a spider something that's like a kite is basically like an air balloon out of here and okay. Here's the thing though. It's not just them catching the wind. There's evidence that spiders can sense earth's electric fields and take advantage of that to shoot up into the sky
What's Your Everest? With Sara Safari
"I'll sarah it's great to have you on the show. Thank you so much. Thank you for having me. Do you have any questions before we get started. Tell me more about yourself. And what did you start this block. Cats let's see. I started this podcast out of the bit of a depression. That was trying to find out for myself how to be a happier person and through school projects and this show. I've been able to help myself and others be happier still happen to learn every single time i haven't interview. What is the secret to happiness. Now let's see well but if we talked about so far you're talking is going to be completely new but we've talked about relationships. Those are very important. We've talked about money. Buzek just kind of ways to be happier. I'll give you my own definition. Good cheer wore me to death of is leaving at your full potential. Who i like that so doing things that you really wanna do. And then you're happy and that there is a deeper levels to it after you do everything that you wanna do then you realize after doing all of that. There's only two things that really make you happy. The rest is just a surface happiness but the deep happiness there are only two ways of being actually happy one making a difference in the world to having relationships like that. Tell us a little bit more about yourself. I was born in iran. And i moved to the united states when i was twenty and i studied electrical engineering at ucla. And i was working in by companies and then later on. I decided that i want to start teaching and the main part of the story. Is that outof nowhere. I decided to climb mount everest. Seven years they go and then a couple of years a few months. After i decided to climb mount everest i decided to quit and then when i decided to quit i met the founder of the organization in power nepali girls and i decided to climb mount everest again for the second time. I mean just. I didn't do the stein. But i just said to quit right at the beginning but the second time i decided to do it. This time to raise funds and awareness for the girls who become victims of human trafficking or forced to get married at a very young age and then i actually climbed mount everest. And when i was climbing there was a seven point. Eight earthquake in nepal. I survived the earthquake and the avalanches and aftershocks everything about that earth way again came back home. Publish the book starting my own business and here. I am right now. Seven years after that would have been a scarier rake. It was gary. Yeah where were you. When that hit. I was at twenty thousand feed on an ice wall about finish the wall on the edge off the wall. Almost when the earthquake hit us at a decision mount everett above koumura icefall is the most dangerous part of everest in most unstable part of everest grey. I so did you end up making it to the top. No i'd i'd you're talking to my soul right no. We didn't make it to the top because everybody decided to quit climbing. You know there are sherpas which are neb Mountain climbers who are really good at this and they set up their route a rope all the way to the top of the mountain and because of the air raid ten thousand people died today have to call it quits and they had to leave to go. Take care of their families. Their home their belongings was just such a crazy earthquake and then when they left nobody else without them. Klein's evidence or any mountain that area so they let everybody else to leave. Yeah so no. I then make it to the top of everest. I still haven't made it to the top of everest. Even tried a bunch of times. After that i still haven't made it to the top of everest
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.
China and Nepal announce new agreed-on height for Mount Everest of 8,849 meters (29,032 feet), ending past discrepancy
"Is officially a bit taller. Today. China and the Paul share the mountain and switch me to Pataki reports. Officials from both countries have revised ever wrists height. Gotta watch your press conference and the police and Chinese officials unveiled the new height of Mount Everest. 8848.86 M. That's about 29,032 ft. Nearly 3 FT, taller than when previously measured. Mountains gain height overtime because of shifting tectonic plates, but can become shorter when earthquakes occur. After a powerful quake in 2015 Nepal in China decided to re measure the peak in the past. The two neighbors have disagreed on the height of Mount Everest. But today's announcement ends a long debate. Both countries called the announcement a mark of their friendship. For NPR news. I'm search
China, Nepal announce new official height for Mount Everest

China and the paul share the mountain and sushmita paddock reports officials from both countries have revised everest's height at a wardrobe press conference and he believes and chinese officials unveiled the new height of mount everest. Eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight point. Eight six meters. That's about twenty nine thousand thirty two feet. Nearly three feet taller than previously measured mountains gain height overtime because of shifting tectonic plates but can become shorter when after a powerful quake in two thousand fifteen and china decided to re measure the peak in the past.

"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

I didn't send you a card not yet those and you're drunk thing i've ever actually seen you draw the thing about vegas with me. The power trip is the only time. I get shit faced that friday morning. Yes but then. I get hammered and i go back and crashing my with my apartment and my hotel room so it's not like i get shit facing and wander the strip. Go get hammered. In by what. Eleven o'clock i'm sleeping it off in my hotel man and then back up by you know three or four or five o'clock and go back out and play cards again so i don't get hammered and hang with the group. I just get hammered at beat up in the morning by the way speaking of mornings in vegas the pepper million hour and a half away. Where every fucking second. It's now worth worth it. Go worth pepper mill. But i wouldn't we. Well i was. I was under the influence. I didn't feel like that. Where do you wait With cova wait in the parking lot. Yeah but it was fine morning. Now they got a entercom stood in the parking lot for an hour and a half. I would have left. But it was nothing else to do all what i do. I was enjoying myself man. That was myself out there.

I don't cacique telecom. I've never understood as huge dramatic pause word says be indeed boss. He's gay he's he's he's blind. I would love to find out why she did that. Like how how you mix that up. I have no idea. Right i dunno. I don't know. I wonder if she's answered. That question publicly. Known weird freudian slip though certainly is not in. It's not impressive dilemma mountain. When you're gay no big deal. Congratulate would be the same as climbing a mountain as your straight very impressive to get to the top of mount everest as the blind gut again on the scale of one to ten. How are you that. He climbed to the top of mount everest blind like an eight. yeah good what. If he's gay and blind still eight doesn't move the meat a little harder line. This is the key i mean. Come on. I mean it's a little more difficult. If you're if you're gay you gotta go through the careful pleasing gave part. They're going to distract you from like the climbing.

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
This week in 1953: Hillary and Tenzing conquer Everest
"Week in nineteen fifty three Edmund Hillary in New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay sherpa from Nepal become the first explorers to reach the summit of Mount Everest which is twenty nine thousand thirty five feet above sea level is the highest point on earth news of their achievement broke around the world on June second the day of Queen Elizabeth the second's coronation Britain's hailed it as a good omen for the country's future
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.

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.

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.

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..

And this is if you are brands if you're experience new story or so unique that you can be marketed by that. So let's give an example. You were an astronaut, you climb Mount Everest. You are Black Hawk helicopter pilot and one of the first hundred women. You know, you have something that's so unique that you get stance it out by by yourself. Then that would be the third way.

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.
