NASA Inventions Facilitate Remote Health Monitoring
"For NASA, making sure astronauts or healthy, while they're away from home is a top priority, and some of the new technologies developed for space can save lives right here on earth. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future. NASA needed a way to monitor astronauts health that didn't involve taking a full-scale diagnostic laboratory to space. The solution was to shrink the lab with masses Nanno sensor device. Doctors can diagnose diseases just by analyzing your breath. A NASA developed stethoscope. Not only let's doctors listen to your heart and lungs. It could help replace. Replace. The need for expensive and lung tests. A battery operated mask designed for astronauts can help keep people working in dangerous places safe. The mask can be worn by pilots, divers and miners to monitor metabolic functions such as an levels or heart rate, relaying the information wirelessly for real time
Lung Cancer Screen Could Be Easy-pee-sy
"This is scientific. Americans sixty seconds science. I'm wait gibbs. All imagine getting screened for early stage lung cancer simply by taking a deep breath from an inhaler and then peeing into a cup. Sangita Baccio a professor of Health Sciences and engineering at MIT described. How that might be possible in Ted Talk? She gave in two thousand sixteen. What if you had a detector that was so small that it could circulate in your body? Find the tumor all by itself and send a signal to the outside world. It sounds a little bit like science fiction but actually nanotechnology allows us to do. Just that his idea was to invent nontoxic nanno probes. That doctors could put inside your blood or lungs or guts to detect a tiny tumors. When they're easier to treat before they grow big enough to spread throughout the body and damaged vital organs. I dream that one day instead of going into an expensive screening facility to get a colonoscopy or a mammogram or a PAP smear that you could get a shot. Wait an hour and do a urine test on a paper strip in two thousand seventeen bought. His team reported a proof of concept experiment in nature. Biomedical Engineering that demonstrated Nanna probes like this working to detect early stage ovarian cancer in mice and now the group has refined this technology further to create a screening test for lung cancer. That is more sensitive than the C. T. Scans used today. The team of Harvard and MIT researchers described their work in the April first issue of science translational medicine lung cancer accounts for nearly a quarter of all cancer deaths in the US each year in large part because most cases of lung cancer are not caught until after the disease has already spread to other sites yet win lung. Cancer is caught and treated early the majority of patients survived the disease for at least five years but ct screening for lung. Cancer is not widely used around the world. Because it's expensive. And more than ninety percent of positive tests turn out to be benign growths not cancer. So this kind of screening leads to a lot of unnecessary and invasive biopsies in. Battista study which was done on mice genetically engineered to develop lung tumors very similar to those seen. In people the Nanna probes were able to detect tumors about fifty times smaller than other screening methods and it produced. No false positives. The NETA probes are designed to release reporter molecules when they come near certain kinds of lung tumors. Once released the reporters pass into the blood get filtered by the kidneys and then exit the body in the urine. The group is now working to repackage the nano probes into a form that could be inhaled as a powder or through a nebulizer if that succeeds then the technology will have to proceed through several years of clinical trials before it could be used to screen people for lung cancer. And I hope that what this means is that one day we can detect tumors in patients. Sooner than ten years after they've started growing and that this would lead to earlier treatments and that we could save more lives than we can today with early detection.
Will the Paper of the Future Be Made of Poop?
"It's become an evergreen piece of advice for aspiring writers. Put Your Butt in the chair and write a first draft no matter how crappy. Now thanks to a breakthrough in chemical technology that first draft can be literally crap or at least printed on it researchers announced at a meeting of the American Chemical Society in March of two thousand eighteen. That it's possible to turn manure from cows elephants goats and other grass munchers into yes paper as you may already know. Paper is made from cellulose. That usually comes from trees. Not every place has a lot of trees but as we all know everybody poops and some of those poopers leave patties around for stepping in or collecting if you of a mind to collect poop like these. Acs scientists are one of the researchers who presented this idea at the ACS meeting in question Alexander Bismarck. Phd was driving around Crete and watched goats eat grass and poop it out. He thought that maybe the goats were doing to the grass. What paper manufacturers due to trees turn it into cellulose that could be made into paper? Because of course that's what you think of while you're driving around an idyllic island. Chretien excursions some animals. It turns out do a pretty good job. Pooping out paper cellulose depending on. Which animal is doing? The Manure Manufacturing Bismarck said in a press statement up to forty percent of that manure is cellulose which is then easily accessible to make paper from trees. The TREES HAVE TO BE GROUND. Way Down by machine into a pulp before being made into proper paper. Goats do that work for free. Every day of their grass munching poop lieven lives. The only thing they require is more grass which makes more poop which makes more paper and they need some water to drink and maybe scratches on their little chins but either way. It's a more environmentally friendly process than traditional papermaking and it's not just goats. The researchers moved onto piles of Paddy's from horses cows and elephants to elephants in wildlife parks in Africa. Our number one at going number two at the San Francisco Zoo alone. An adult male African elephant can produce three hundred pounds. That's one hundred thirty six kilos of Pooh. That's a lot of potential paper. The first uses for this PU paper would probably be industrial according to the researchers it could filter wastewater before it's released into the environment which seems fitting but papyrus or Nanno paper as the researchers rather boringly call. It could also be used to write on. So don't give up fellow writers. Our first drafts could soon be really truly crappy.
Astronauts' Fresh Baked Cookies
"On the International Space Station recently baked the first chocolate chip cookies in space. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future. Hot Meals on. The International Space Station are prepared by adding water to a food packet and he in a briefcase like food warmer strapped to the wall but zero g kitchen could change all that the New York startup company partnered with Nanno racks the leading provider of commercial access to space and Doubletree by Hilton famous for their cookies at check in to send the first of its kind oven to space with enough dough to bake five chocolate chip cookies. Astronauts noted the cookies which were baked one at a time in the cylindrical chamber maintained the same shape they do on earth but baking times were significantly longer. All of the space based cookies were sent back to Earth to be tested by food. Science professionals astronauts did however get to enjoy the smell of freshly baked cookies while they ate some of the pre baked cookies doubletree sent from home for innovation now I'm Jennifer.

"We will be talking about childcare a topic we've talked about in the past but some sort of general guidelines for people to think about as they are making their childcare choices that we've heard from our listeners things to keep in mind as general philosophies because you've you've made some changes recently Sarah Right. Yeah I think I think the reason I thought it would be interesting to another childcare episode since we did talk about it before we'll a couple of reasons number one. We have some new listener so this is always requested topic anything from time to time. It's nice to go back on but also I think people forget that this is an area in which you can't set it and forget it because what works when you have one baby is different than when you have two children and it's different when you have older children that may have different kinds of homework and in fact really. The logistics can change every year or even more frequently. We're finding ourselves. It was funny because all of a sudden you know my I wind about it on this podcast. Enough you guys know. I was very frustrated with a lot of evenings because Josh often gets home fairly late there are exceptions. But I certainly can't rely on him to get home. You know around dinner time or anything like that or even penn time and I was finding myself dreading those evenings but our nanny worked from she used to come at seven thirty in the morning and we used to live fairly far from where she did. Now we don't But she came really early. You know she commuted and of course. I wanted to get her out on time. So she left at six o'clock saliva basically get home from work and she'd be pretty much out the door leaving me to deal with the evening on my own. Which again I did it but I wasn't always very happy. Happy about it yet. So you know all sudden. It occurred to me that we didn't necessarily need our nanny to do the morning. Drop off like I don't know what was stopping me. Did Change because it has to do with our move and the timing of the fact that genevieve goes to school now but genevieve school is conveniently located on the way to my office and I had this block on my head thinking like well. You can't drop off the big kids engine. Vive and then one day aren't any had to be often. Let me try it. It was like that is so easy. Like throw Momma car or sometimes we do it with scooters and and a stroller drop off the kids and the timing actually works perfectly because they need to be there really dropped off by like seven forty five and then. I drive halfway to work. Genevieve's drop-off coincides pretty much. Exactly what that halfway point of one I need to get to work and I can actually get in time for when I first patients there and do the drop off which means. I didn't need our nanny to come so early. Which also meant that? I felt free to ask her to work later. So like you know a cascade and now we have her come. Sometimes she still has to come early. We had a parent teacher conference this morning in Josh. Both wanted to go without being distracted by genevieve so she did come early so you know she's still available to come in the morning and usually it's one to two days during the week that she does come early but a lot of other days she comes in around eleven and then we'll stay until seven thirty and then the hours kind of even out to the same number of our. She was working before. But I get that support in the evenings usually put to bed while she's still here and I am a happier person so but it it just like you know we could have easily just stay on autopilot thinking that you know we had a system that worked and you know she was already working a lot of hours. We'd boxed ourselves in a little bit. Yeah so that that was a big thing and then kind of around the same time. I got empowered because I just came to the realization. My husband's actually had to take a little bit more weekend call with the changes at work and it's fine. It's it's reasonable but he's on call one out of every three weekends. I was just started seeing these thirty three percent of my weekend. Stretch ahead of me for the rest of the next decade and not being able to work out and And I was like wait I hover. Genevieve will be twelve though by the end of that second. I'm pretty sure that you can leave a twelve year. Old a fifteen year old a seventeen year old out certainly leave a twelve year old. Okay maybe I was seeing the next five years and I was like. Why can't I just hire someone to comfort like? It doesn't make me a bad parent doesn't make do anything and then. I'm like oh I could hire someone to come. Watch the big kids while I take her to my gym and so now I went back on. Care Dot com which is where we found any. I found to babysitters and I can talk a little bit about the application process. Because I've had pretty good luck and the last two weekends I've come for like two hours since in the morning so I can workout while my husband's working and actually sometimes when he's not working I'm trying to have them come so that he can. Somebody asked to do some work when he's not working so so he can do that without it really taking me and even so we could maybe both at the same time once in a while so again. It's like you have these stories. You tell yourself about what you're allowed to do but we're grownups allowed to do whatever we want. I think there's a mental block about having childcare when you're not actually working right and I think a lot of people have in their mind that the only acceptable time to have it is from the start of your commute to the time when you walk in the door and you know maybe you get a date night every month or so that you have a sitter to regularly build into your life extra hours beyond that I think makes people you know feel weird and we can certainly explore on this podcast. Y that is like why do people feel that way but I think that is definitely we should exactly first before we get to that though the deeper question maybe you can talk through the ads that you put on mystical standpoint so again we found our current nanny through care dot com six years ago. She still working with us. And I found these babysitters what has worked for me. Is that put an ad and I do. The paid subscriptions communicate and then in that ad. I put very specific things about what I'd like them to respond with. Please respond with number one. Your availability number. Two like two references. Unlike number three time you can meet with me like that's pretty simple right and yet. Most people cannot follow the instructions to respond with those things. So I'm like okay. We're done we're done here. You could follow my instructions on the ad you just sent clearly a copy and pasted thing. About how you WanNa work because you love children but you didn't answer my question so that's a really nice filter on that seems to work. And then you know. I set up interviews. I have a friend so I set up for interviews for a few weeks ago and I will admit to them just cancelled. One of them just cancelled in ghosted. One of them Sent me a text like five minutes before the start and was like sorry never mind and then the other two showed up like beautifully on time professionally dressed like darkness. Good yes Contacts in fact both of them at least one of them like sent me a text like just just letting him on way like just like fully and then I knew they were professionals. The other thing I really liked too is if if this is not to hire someone for primary job but like for these babysitting short little gigs. If you find someone that's hired by an organization you know like one of ours is working for a government organization locally. I kind of know that they're not a government. Organization is not going to hire like someone with criminal record or major issues in. If I can find out that they've been there for a couple of years. It's a nice setting processes well to make me feel safe and secure. I feel less scared about like I know. There's a lot of angst when your child or very little They can't talk to you yet about what's going to happen but at least. I know I have an eight year old almost and so she'll tell me if someone's you know not great but I still feel much better knowing that okay. This person was vetted to work in a medical practice or to work at a daycare. Like they've been through background checks drug testing all that kind of stuff. Because I'm not necessarily GONNA have the the the ability to do that myself although through through carry dot com you John Various things. So that's that's a service you can look there's others to like sitter city. Nanno is an on demand one. There's there's a number of players in this space now that there weren't in the in the past in you had to go through if particularly if you're hiring full-time childcare. You had to go through Nanny Agency for instance which they still exist. You may wish to do that. But you know the people's mileage may vary with with them and I really like references so I I asked. I'm like I want phone number of someone you've worked for recently and I do call and usually you can tell instantly in that person's voice like Oh yeah. This is someone that they've trusted. I mean it's the same as a word of mouth wreck but I'll be honest. People are not always including myself so excited to share their favorite babysitters contact information They may want to dig their own date nights and they don't want you to pull them off the market every Saturday night. So that's why I N N I feel awkward asking for that reason because I don't want to steal someone else's best person when somebody has kids that are kind of aging out of the need for babysitter. That's a great time to ask like. Oh you've mentioned that you're leaving your Ten-year-old or twelve year old at home now like any babysitters that you love that you don't need any more that can be a window of opportunity.
How Animals Get Color Without Pigment
"There's more than one way to make it color when humans one address. Something up with a splash of colour. We almost always rely on. Paints dyes or some other form of payments nature uses pigments too but after a few billion years of trial and error it also has another trick up its sleeve. It's called structural color. And it gets it's not from chemical properties but from physical shape so like. Have you ever wondered why humming birds have such vibrant colors? I mean they're not just bright they are iridescent. But if you took a hummingbird feather and grounded up into powder you wouldn't get that beautiful hugh that's because their color comes from the physical structure of the feathers specifically incredibly small pancake shaped structures. The colors we see are the result of light physically interacting with those stacks of Nanno skill flap. Jacks scientists have known for centuries that tiny structures? Were probably responsible for the IRIDESCENT Shimmer of peacock feathers and butterfly wings. And it's become clear over the last couple of decades that colorful micro and Nano scale structures give colored to living things across the natural world in everything from insects to fish to plants. Sort of backup. Pigments get their color because their molecules absorb certain wavelengths of light and reflect others structural colors on the other hand come from the physical properties of the material itself so in nature. These are usually something like cellulose. Collagen Keaton and Carrington. But if you look closely enough at the carapace of a beetle or at the berry like fruit of the herb paalea Camden Sada. Then you'll see a complex micro structure far more advanced than anything. Human engineers have ever designed. Take that herb polycondensation and it's metallic blue berries. While naturally occurring pigments tend to FADE OVER TIME. There are forty year old specimens of these berries. That haven't begun to fade but try to extract blue pigment from the fruit. And you'll get nothing. That's because the metallic blue comes from the wafer. Thin strands of cellulose are arranged in the berries. Cell walls the tiny threads are stacked in zillions of Helix Shapes and in arrangement that allows blue light to be reflected why Elat of other wavelengths passes through scientists are studying structural colors in nature to try to make some themselves in a field called synthetic photonics. In fact this field has given rise to technology. You probably know pretty well like Blu Ray but nature did it
Amaio: High End Beyond Swimwear
"Hi Samantha. Hi Charles how are you? I'm pretty good. So you're You're swimwear line line a Myo. It's Kinda pitched as Appraise swim which the French for after swim. So you're covering swimwear you're making giving suits and then you're making things to wear after he got out of the pool or around the pool kind of stuff exactly okay But you're also very sustainability focused in your maiden Los Angeles so let's talk Tell me a little bit about the brandon where it came from. Yeah so We are very much pointing the swim category. All of our pieces are made and designed to be worn. Not only as swim but as ready to wear solve our one pieces you can easily whereas bodysuits and our tops as crop tops or are swim card against tops with high waisted pants. In addition to all of our resort where pieces transitioning straight back to the swim and you can have a full couture outfit all in a Myo tour We it is not. It's high end luxury and we tried to be as As possible obviously not being in Paris and coming from that heritage but Very much in our technique in the construction of our pieces. We take a lot of inspiration from couture and do the best that we can. You actually have a background where you're very Cosmopolitan you've been around. Can you talk to me a little bit about How you came to do fashion a new. You also have a fine arts and literature background as well. Yes that's correct so I got my degree in Studio Fine Arts And French Comparative Literature I made the transition into fashion design right after university and kind of fell in love with the swim category because it felt like the perfect combination of these two sides of myself One that's been in the water as much as possible since I was a child And then the other the the more cosmopolitan side of of growing up Between Boston in Paris and And Beirut so Having something that was more fashion forward and elegant within the swim category really resonated with me and then creating a multi functioning Multipurpose product for the cosmopolitan. Modern woman was very exciting for us. Would you say from Your Fine Arts background? How much does that inform what you do as a designer do? Do you feel like you pull more from your fashion school skills or you're fine. Art Skills the things that you learn specifically in those different schools when you're designing. I would say from my fine arts just because in particular. We spend a lot of time studying the female body and the female form does yes and so dealing with a stretch. Fabric fit is obviously the most critical and important aspect of the product. So and then and then the inspiration from more of the old couture houses of Paris. Kind of the fun. Cherry on top So we I take a lot of inspiration from ready to wear and couture elements and then apply them onto onto swim so most people think of Los Angeles as producing t shirts and jeans. Not the the find sewing. So how do you build an apparatus? Did you find a factory in La? That was already able to do this or did you start your operation. Now it's been very difficult We are development as start up from scratch So I found all of our development team Which is a huge component of being able to replicate the more fine finer sewing And then we work with several contractors but we are very hands on with the contractors to ensure they execute Kind of at the level and standard that were striving for so. How were you selling? This we are selling to wholesalers or we have wholesale partners as well as directly off of our website. What's kind of stores are you in so far? I mean you started this in two thousand sixteen right We officially launched in May twenty seventeen. I did a very soft launch and may twenty sixteen okay And then we started mainly just with wholesale accounts and then we launched our ECOMMERCE platform in January twenty eighteen and we're currently with Neiman. Marcus Bergdorf Goodman. We've been with anthropology and And then several you know hotel luxury luxury hotels around the world like the four seasons and chevelle blown Saint Bart's and Were with Michelle farmer and Several other small stood greats. Luxury store is around the world. I don't think of all those kind of high end stores. As being very tech savvy. Do you get good information about your sales from and what's selling and what's not working and we do we do. I mean we. Our retail partners are important to us as much as our direct to consumer as as important to us And really building. That relationship with our buyers is important So we tried to make an effort to do that As well as you know making an effort to have that relationship with our directly with our consumers and how you approach ecommerce what what do you say to people online about the brand what? How'd you encapsulated into the little bits that get shared on social media? Yeah so our messaging to our customers very two folds one is explaining that we are making that bridge between a place ski which most people are more familiar with Saying you know you you have a place. Ski In the Outerwear Category. Why don't we have a play? Swim come to a mile and this is who we are and we style All of our pieces very much during her shoots as ready to wear to showcase to the consumer how you can wear our our product outside of the beach and ocean and pool And then the second fold is is looping background to your first question about the sustainability and philanthropic component of our brand which is very important for us In today's market. I think you have to have a really strong vision. And stance of where you want to be in the global climate today And for us it's really important to be a part of that sustainability conversation especially since unfortunately lycra is a synthetic fabric So we WANNA be really on the forefront of the new technology that's coming out around textiles. That are better for the environment Better for the world as well as promoting the more artisanal craftsmanship Better working conditions word. You see the most promise in terms of material science meeting these sustainability challenges for stretch fabric. Yeah I think definitely. Just in the efforts around creating recyclable LYCRA fabrics We still have not been able to find a fabric. That's one hundred percent recyclable. And still very luxurious so we put a lot of emphasis on our base. Swim Fabric In this sustainability component of it so the the meal that we work with fully powered and their technology for how they recycle and reuse. The water waste is extremely efficient and innovative And so that's all really important. So if we can't use a fully recyclable fabric. We try to make sure that every other component of how that fabric is made is very sustainable and very efficient and provide an you know creates as little carbon waste as possible are like Rizzo Extra Life Lycra certified so it will last you a lifetime. Oh what is that? Extra life. Lakers certified is pretty much is what it almost. Sounds like It? It's a tight. It's a technique that diminishes the erosion and kind of the wear and tear. That GRA can go through when it's exposed to the elements and so it's in the it's in the finishing in its in actually how they create the fabric in ensuring it will last you fifty plus sixty years. So is this a new product that you're able to access that that wasn't there a couple of years ago now extra life. Laker has been technology. That's been around for a couple years And so we just make sure that we are a part of that. But there's a lot of really interesting new technology around Recycled Nanno fibers which I find highly fascinating. Japan is actually a great They're really on the forefront of the these new types of fabrics and so. I'm hoping to incorporate more of
These Chemists Ditched a Beauty Conglomerate to Blaze Their Own Trail
"Our guest today. It is Chemist Confessions Glory Liu and Victoria Food. They are here hello Welcome thank you for having us. We're so we're excited. We're so pumped to get into the nitty gritty of skin care before we get started. Let us introduce you all to our audience. Gloria and Victoria are to formulate formula chemists. That quickly became close friends being cubicle buddies at a major beauty conglomerate after a few years formulating skin care products. They saw firsthand first-hand that skin-care had become really difficult to navigate and shop for so they started INSTA- blog to share their chemists perspective via transparent skin-care science with some added added silly cartoon doodles and last year. They went on to launch a skincare. Line that embodies their mission of transparent safe and effective skin care and we should note that you have a huge following you. Our beloved revered referred to often when we yam on about skincare and you invoked yes and we're just so thrilled to have you both here to talk to us today. Thanks for having me really words awards. Crasher set you up there Aria sweat. We've before we kind of launch into do the many listener questions received for you. We would love to just hear the origin story of your lives. Together pre chemists confessions agents and then how you got started working together stable. I guess I'll go first. I'm Victoria by the way. So they know would voice but I guess I had no idea I was actually going to go into the beauty industry. I studied chemical engineering in college and actually my road was starting to push me towards Pharma. I was doing I guess a Master's thesis in like Nanno Medicine And I was looking at the career track of Pharma and was realizing realizing this is really not for me. Because Pharma's high pressure long project timelines and it was just I don't think ultimately I really love that avondale and so I just luckily enough. My research was actually an acne research so so it kind of just led me to think. Oh it would be fun to work for a beauty company specifically skincare. And that's how I ended up actually landing ending chemists position at
Superstrong Fibers Could Be Hairy Situation
"All mammals have hair commonly called called for when it's on your cat or Koala and the thickness of individual hairs varies from species to species. For example elephant. Hairs are more than four. We're times thicker than a strand from an adult human namo nave the animal AIDS larger. The hair has to be faker. University of California San Diego material scientists when Yang. She's interested in how biological structures like hair hold up under stress. That interest comes from a desire fire to design better synthetic materials. Yang's team tested the tensile strength of hair from eight different mammal species including humans. They subjected subjected those hairs to increasing levels of tension until the fibers broke the researchers assume that thick hair from giraffes elephants in boars for example people would be more robust but they were wrong. Ain't texting late. Refine the thinner hair actually is stronger. In fact adult human hair was some one of the strongest in the study and children's hair. The thinnest of all was even more durable. Yang's team took a closer look at the hair with a scanning electron microscope. Hi Chris Cope. All hair is made of the Protein Carrington. The microscope views revealed specific patterns of breakage in the Carribean fibers which are composed of a protective detective outer cuticle and inner cortex that provides strength the microscope. Images showed that the CORTEX thicker hair tends to snap when broken leaving clean even break but the inner cortex of thinner hair breaks off less evenly. Yang compares the process to what happens when a powerful gust of wind blows lows a tree down in those cases that trump tends to shear at an angle. And that kind of break is a sign of strength. It actually takes more attention to cause shearing than a a clean break. The researchers found that the cutoff point between these two types of breakage was about two hundred micrometres about two and a half times thicker than human hair. The study is in the Journal matter. Young is now attempting to mimic the complex structure of hair in the lab with three D. printing once the technology is perfected down to the Nanno scale. These artificial fibres could be used to create a variety of strong materials for use in construction or even rescue operations operations such as nearly indestructible ropes. Until then we'll just have to be content with the knowledge that fewer than a thousand human hairs can support entire person's weight think of all the strength that's left on the hair salon floor.
Apple's New AirPods Pro: What We Know
"New air pod pro pods it's a really well that's the difference podcasting and right and the actual bugs you pulling up and back up the net at that in addition into the fact that they have like a rubber tip or not even like a rubber tip they have rubber tips the the what you call the Rod that comes down out of your ears -nificant shorter than than the existing airport buds so they could make the case a little shorter but they also had to make the case wider sort of like you know sort of reminds me of the fat Nanno the way remember the old fat Manam sure you know it's a a sort of squatter case because these buds with you know the budget bigger because they go into your ear so that case had to be wire it's interesting that it's but it has more volume though yeah yeah I did too because these are headphones I should be clear about what I'm saying is that the case has volume is is larger right the previous generation of air
"nanno" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"School board is ending random searches of students ACLU attorney on a Mendosa says the board determined the searches disrupt learning time in dehumanized students. Fatman searches are discriminatory. Children report that they feel criminalized by the policy that they feel targeted by the policy by July of next year, but searches can still be done. If officials have reasonable suspicion some board members say wanting students with metal detectors was a safe deterrent and should not have been ended without an alternative in place. A house subcommittee has held a hearing to talk about legislation to study the idea of reparations for slavery. Actor turned activist. Danny Glover to lawmakers a national reparations policy is a moral democratic and economic imperative. The house majority leader says he expects the issue will be voted on in the house. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell says he's against the legislation. I don't think reparations for something that happened a hundred and fifty years ago. None of us currently living or responsible is a good idea. He says the US has dealt with the original sin of slavery by fighting the civil war passing civil rights legislation and electing a black president the pilot who made an emergency landing on the Hudson river in New York. A few years ago is testified before. Congressional committee about training on the Boeing seven thirty-seven max jets like the two that crashed in Indonesia, and Ethiopia retired pilot Chesley shellenberger told lawmakers, he used a simulator to recreate the automatic nose down pitch of Amax plane, that was based on a faulty sensor reading even knowing what was going to happen. I could see how crews could run out of time before they could have solved the problem. He says, all seven thirty seven max pilots should get detailed training on flight, simulators, not planes full of passengers and crew news brought to you by Nanno knee. The Norwegian island north.

"Now we have Robert Service Steph writer at science and he's here to talk about perofrmance gates which I'm sure I've heard once a week for the past five years, the word, Perov skates. They have a lot of education's. And in this case, we're gonna talk about their use in LED's in light emitting diodes, but I typically hear them associated with solar energy, right? Bob rewritten, quite a number of stories about fraud, Skype in the past, and prostitutes are a large collection of materials that share a common crystal structure, and these materials have been exciting and very exciting for the research community in recent years, because they've proven to be very efficient solar cell materials. So they're really good at absorbing sunlight and then converting that energy into electrically. But we're, we're talking about LED's, right? What this is kind of the reverse you feed energy, or electricity or form of light energy or something into. These materials, and then they convert that into specific colors of light that they emit. And so this is what LED's do LED's are very common in the modern daily life, our lights have our TV's have are made of them are cellphone displays have LED's what's an LED it's not Ross guides right now. What's in there, right? So there's quite a number of different materials that are used in LA days. There's a whole class of inorganic compounds that are commonly used in lighting fixtures. LED lights would buy from Home Depot. For example, I believe would be made with those materials, whereas in our cell phone displays and in many TV's that have LED TV displays many of those or Ganic materials. So those are nice because they can be processed differently. They, they have different advantages than were at sort of entered this whole picture, is that Ross guides are really simple to make that use very commonly available. Starting materials and then they can be processed very easily at low temperature. They don't require being grown under vacuum hood or anything. Right. Very complex. And so it opens the door towards making very large area lights or larger displays with bronchitis. That would also be quite cheap. Whereas the other ones are more complex manufacturing process for solar cells. Yes. That's correct. So, for example of Liz silicon solar, so you have to grow the silicon ingot and then which is a purified silicon, and they have to slice it. And then arrange it, and so with props guys, you can basically just brew up a liquid solution of the starting materials than spread it out over surface. And then you heat it up, very gently in materials crystallize out of that process is actually a description of the crystal shape. It could have many different components in this crystal is that how they would make a display. A out of process that was different colors. They use different minerals within the same display. Yes, in short, if you want to make visible light display, right? And you wanna develop the primary colors red green and blue and then by combining different levels of those colors, you can make the other colors with rainbow with Brodsky's you tune the color based on the chemical composition of the props guide itself. So they actually have a different recipe of the product for green than they do for red, and then they do for blue, you know, the idea would be to make individual Nanno size components of one recipe. And then organize them in a way that makes pixels for display and one of the papers that we write about as a paper that came out last week in science advances, and it offered a way to make a pretty sophisticated display using rod sky. And they, they first synthesized their different recipes for the different colors of. The Prague skylights, and then using advanced three D printer to not only make different pixels of the different colors, but then to orient the Nanno crystals or the nanna wires in this case within each of the pixels, and so the nanna wires omit their colors better in one direction than they do another. And so those light waves oscillate with a particular favourite orientation and that's light polarization. So when you have polarized sunglasses that screen out a certain polarization as the same idea here. So light is getting omitted in a preferred direction than they use filters to select which colors of light. They wanted to see. So if you say you had products that were gonna shine red, and they were oriented with their nanna, wires facing horizontally, say, well, then you just turn your polarized or so it to horizontal then the that light would come through, and you could see it while it was at the. Same time it was blocking the other colors. And then by just turning the polarize or you could just tune whatever color you wanted to see very cool. Okay. What are some of the major advantages of using parasites in LED's, the main advantage of profits and Ellie dis is the prospects for making cheap large area, lights and displays the other thing that you've seen with processes. They've caught up inefficiency. They're, they're doing really well on the solar side has something similar happen with their ability to emit light in the LED format. The answer to your question is, yes, that's exactly what is happening now is that the a really catching up to in this case, the organic LED's by reaching that milestone, that reaches a level of performance. That is a commercial standard. What is the target efficiency for taking trinity turning into only, and where is Pasco technology along that spectrum, there's different benchmarks for different applications? For fishing Ince's. So the, the lighting technology that is used in light bulbs in homes like that. Those can actually be really quite efficient. I believe some of them around fifty percent. And then they go up from there, even higher that's really quite impressive. And, and if you've ever touched a regular incandescent light bulb, you know how hot it is. The reason is a regular incandescent light is extremely inefficient. Most of the energy in an incandescent light is converted into heat, which is why you burn your hand, if you touch them. But if you happen to touch get close to LED light in your house, they are not very hot and that's because most trinity has been converted into light. So for perhaps gates, ideally, you just wanna go as high as you can because that makes them more cost effective. It also means that if you're creating key that can have other problems that can cause breakdown of the devices. So if you're if most of your energy is going in from electrically into light than. And that's really good for the lifetime of devices as well. But certain applications can tolerate lower efficiencies. So, for example, the old led displays the organic light emitting diode displays TV's those are around twenty twenty five percent efficiency if, if I'm not mistaken there. And so certain applications can tolerate Laura officiency, if they can reach an application that the inorganic can't do or that maybe they'll be a different form factor. Maybe they'll be might be able to do it over a much larger area, which the inner Gannex can't really do easily, so there's different numbers for different applications. Why in a big issues with the process on the solar side end now on the only desire is there, not that stable, you make one and then it kinda doesn't last at last days. That's been true with both of them the solar cell manufacturers in. Researchers are really getting pretty good handle on this. Now, they're they've come up with a whole slew of technique. To make these things more robust. And also to encapsulate them in protective materials that than keep them from interacting with air or humidity in the air, which part of the things that really caused him to break down. It's still earlier days on the LED side. So I think they're still trying to get a complete handle scientifically on why these things exactly are breaking down. The other thing I would just add that the organic vitamin, there's twenty years ago, face the same problem. And, and so the research community at that time really had to grapple with how to get those materials to have a longer life. And just by virtue of the fact that we now use them all over the place. That sort of shows you that they made steady significant progress in doing that. And so there's a lot of hope that, that will happen as well with the LA days, but they have to

And then he always went back to ethica in upstate New York every summer, and then he was teaching at Ithaca. So he kind of gradually spent more time, and it's like a later in his life. When he got sick was at a prolonged illness or did he go, suddenly, well, it was it was pretty sudden he you know, he'd had who's fifty years old wasn't he or something like that fifty? Yeah. He was fifty and he had a couple of heart attacks, and he went in for a bypass procedure, which was fairly cardiac bypass procedure. Which was it was. Yeah time, and you know, it's interesting. You know, how new it was because if you read some of the news stories at the time about the surgery, they'll explain to you exactly what the surgery is. You know, they're gonna take vein artery from this here in put it here. It's like nowadays. You wouldn't have to say, you know, what a cardiac bypass says. But that back then it was so new that that explain this the surgery, and he had the surgery and the doctors thought he was successful. And by the time, they were sewing him up. He had another heart attack on the table. And that was pretty much Steve's with us first time caller in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Hi, steve. Hi, george. I got a little tricky about right? I lived in central New York from seventy two to seventy five and I worked on the military base called Seneca. Army couple close. Okay. And it was a big a big arsenal that had nuclear weapons. Quite a few. Actually, it's been on the news. Anyway, roads home was about two or three miles from that date and a little town called Romulus up the road about mile and a half two miles with a little post office where I where I used to have a post office box. And that's where rod used to send that. Yeah. When he he had a swimming pool built on his property there a couple of miles away right next to the base or it's actually an arsenal. And I used to talk to the postmaster it's sort of like the one room perched off, and I said I heard rod Serling was around here. He said, yeah, he comes in once in a while. And I always wish I had met him. But I never did. But I think that's where he's the send his tapes out to Los Angeles to the. Contrived into is TV program and. A as I say you lived right on lake how Yuga and ethica, and that's not not far. So yeah. Could very well. Be. And he would he would dictate and send the tapes out to Los Angeles to be to be transcribed. Interesting. Steve what else you know, about him? What's that? What else? Do you know about him? That's cool when his career started think a little bit. He went back to that area. And he taught at I believe it's Cornell University down there, and he's very not far from it. It's out where it's on. What's in the little cemetery called the Interlaken right on the lakey much the love that area in its wife when they first got married they had their honeymoon there on the lake her her relatives parents probably owned that property and he bought it eventually, and they live there. And they always went back there on summers to right and relax. And but funny thing is he used to do little radio promotions for people he knew in the area like she or whatever it might be store. I mean that was kind of cute you're here. Locally just to help them out. Now, that's just to help them out. Yeah. Absolutely everything got which really nice guy. That's the way to do it. And he had a heart of gold. He did he he really was incredibly generous with his time. He would do things like that all the time. He would he would narrate things for for free for people people at the college or or local businesses as as Steve mentioned, and yeah, he would absolutely do. And and, you know, going through his correspondence rod Serling kept everything he ever ever sent every letter he ever wrote he kept there still exist, and you would think he responded to every single fan letter he ever received personally, personal letters signed and everything he took that time to do that. And. Mazing that that you can't really find somebody saying a bad word about rod Serling. You really can't Nick we're gonna take a quick break. Then we're gonna come back with final phone calls with you. Special guests, Nick Parisi as his book. Of course, it's called rod sterling his life work in.

Apple, like the OS finally gives app developers what we needed to make that compelling at all to make it even barely functional at all. It turns out it turned really great.

Yeah, and it's an interesting combination of couple of finalize where I mean, and I've been doing this for years in my sporadic jogging habit of somehow trying to get by with the least amount of kit while I can still lead there listening to music or podcasts. And I did the thing for a while where I had the. The little square ipod Nanno on a boat called the tick. Tock wristband. Kickstarter strap was. It was like one of the first kick starter sensation projects. It was a a watch band for the square ipod Nanno that in hindsight, was humongous as a watch, but allowed you. It was an, but as Tim cook famously said before the watch the wrist is an interesting place, and it's an interesting place. It was always an interesting place to put a little thing like that for the reason that it it for over a century now has been an interesting place to put a carry on time piece. And the biggest problem with it wasn't the wristband was a fine respond and it wasn't, you know, looking at it, which was great. It was a great place to put it because you could see it. Like when you clicked it on your shirt, you couldn't really see it. The problem was for audio, having cable go from your risk to your ears was often awful because that was before bluetooth was well. Yeah, it was definitely before do. Then you'd have this, you know, always sort. I felt like you had an IV hooked up to you. You know, like it's just like in a way that it just never feels good to be tethered to an IV when you're in the hospital, or you know, drawing blood or whatever you know is going on. It just never felt good to have a cable connected to my wrist and my head, you know.

I've been testing with doing lots of dog walks with just my watch and everything, and it's great, and I think you know, I ultimately, I don't think people are going to use it that much compared to using their phone because your phone is still better if you have it with you, but if you don't have it with you, if you don't wanna have it with you, this now gives you the option. Yeah, it really exemplifies a to me and. Unusual pattern for apple, like in the old days, Microsoft was famous for this. This this pattern of doing an absolutely dreadful one point. Oh, that even even even at a point where they were successful company like or maybe the most successful company and all of technology, whatever they came out with a one point would be terrible. And even the might of marketing might of Microsoft couldn't make it. It was both both bad technically and a failure in the market, but then rather than abandon it, keep their nose to the grindstone and do a two point. Oh, that still wasn't any good, but was clearly better right?
