Nebraska Teachers Are Piloting a Climate Science Curriculum Using NASA Data
"An NPR survey of American teachers last year found that eighty six percent believe schools should teach climate science. The teachers also said they had trouble finding good tools to teach it a NASA. Climate scientist is working with Nebraska School to develop a curriculum that lets students get their hands on the same tools. Leading researchers use BECCA Castillo of net news reports sciences clear that. Earth's climate is changing mostly caused by human activity but there's still a lot of skepticism about it and how to teach it in public schools. Global warming is a hoax is junk science. This is Paul Meyer a former school board member in an Omaha suburb in two thousand seventeen. He was asking the State Board of education not to add climate change to education standards. I had one of my goals was to make sure that our kids were taught in an honest and truthful manner. I do not want them brainwashed or indoctrinated with falsehoods sentiment like that frustrates climate scientists like NASA's Marc Chandler who uses sophisticated computer models to predict. What's going to happen to the climate and the next ten twenty or even a hundred years whenever there's a tool that most people don't understand can pull out the whole card of. Oh it's just those geeky scientists doing something that none of us understand so a few years ago Chandler started talking with his friend Cory Forbes a science education researcher and professor at the University of Nebraska Lincoln Forbes. New Public School. Teachers had a hard time helping students understand. Climate Science Forbes says the two wrote a proposal to develop climate science curriculum and got a grant from the National Science Foundation. We're focused on pudding. Authentic scientific tools in the hands of teachers and students which is not something that they typically have access to the curriculum is designed to teach students about climate change by giving them access to the same computer models. Marc Chandler is using at NASA officials. Phones Wave Gonzalez. They're trying it out in classrooms like Mary. Burke Maros in Lincoln Nebraska. She helps the teens and her Earth Science class work with a web based interface called easy. Gm that stands for global climate. Modelling Chandler built it so anyone could operate and understand the complicated modeling process. What do you think I WANNA use for? Climate variable for the Sun snow and ice cover more than a thousand Lincoln public. School students have used the program over the last three years. Mara says there's no agenda other than asking students to reach their own conclusions. It's more of A. Go inquiry process where rather than just kind of being given the information the notice wander and start driving their own questions. Morrow who's been teaching climate change for the past decade previously had to develop her own lessons as she went along. She says her students respond much better to hands on projects like easy. Gm It allows the students to do things that are way above the capacity of normal classroom. So it's really exciting. The team developing the climate modeling curriculum is recruiting more Nebraska. Teachers for summer workshops on how to use it in their own classrooms next school year. I'm so excited that you all Nebraska or doing this. This is so exciting. Andreessen Rica's isn't education researcher. Who helped the National Research Council develop next generation science standards being used in twenty states and I think teachers are hungry for this kind of work. They're really hungry for this created curriculum. There's just not a whole lot models out
"You can't tell g story without telling Dartmouth College Story. Dartmouth was really the Institution Matt. Handed time sharing to Ge as both use of those computers and as a way of doing business dartmouth at a very young mathematics department in the late fifty s and early nineteen sixties and several of the faculty including John. Kennedy and Thomas Kurtz had experienced in computing and saw computing as a way to attract really bright math and science students to the college by Nineteen. Sixty two you. They were ready to propose time sharing to the National Science Foundation to get funding to actually build a campus wide and eventually New England Wide Computing Network. That was efficient for the user. They really thought that computing would be a necessary skill for their students in the coming decades. And they saw time sharing as the form of computing that would enable all of their students to gain computing experience and that was revolutionary. That was something that was really not done anywhere else. At the time even at a place like mit which also implemented time sharing or Carnegie Mellon the users were primarily the scientists and engineers whereas at Dartmouth which was a liberal arts college. The users were nearly all of the student bodies have regardless of area of study or previous experience. When Kennedy and Kurtz who were the math professor's leading this project review proposals and really it was the two twenty five in combination with the data net. Thirty that. They saw the way to implement time sharing. They knew the two twenty five would quickly be upgraded. There were already plans for the two thirty five but it was really that combination of the Dana Net. Thirty which could be used to sort of stop the clocks so to speak and enable communications between users and the mainframe to twenty five or to thirty five that the Dartmouth people sort of latched onto in the early nineteen sixty s mainframe. Computers are so expensive that G. E. TO twenty-five computer cost about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Actually as delegation from DARTMOUTH WENT TO G in Phoenix hoping to create a partnership with G. E. saying we the faculty and students. Dr Will Create this time sharing system for you if you give us a two twenty five an Edina net thirty for free. Ge declined that offer but they did give the college a substantial discount. I believe it was a sixty percent discount on the machines. General Electric delivered the two twenty five and the data at thirty two dartmouth in March of nineteen sixty four and two undergraduate students acquired responsibility for actually programming and implementing time sharing using those two computers. Their names were John. Itchy and Michael Bush so Jon. Hagey acquired responsibility for the two twenty five and Michael. Bush had programming ownership on the demon at thirty so they had to figure out how to make their respective machines communicate with each other and they took ownership of those responsibilities in not the machines were known as McGee and Bush and the young men were known as two twenty five and thirty. The two of them took this terribly. Personally it wasn't John's machine and Mike's Machine it was John and Mike who were not responding and they would stand at opposite ends of the room and yell at each other at the top of their voices so I think that's the soul of that machine as these two college students who are so immersed in their enthusiasm for making time sharing work that they become the machines and their personal efforts actually enable literally hundreds of thousands of not millions of other students to access competing in the nineteen sixty s via basic time sharing once it was implemented and New Hampshire those students. Some of them actually went to explain what they had done to the GE engineers and very soon after that GE started marketing time sharing as best and a feature of its computers. Ge sells off. Its ME frame. Business in one thousand nine hundred seventy but it retains its time sharing business for at least another decade well into the nineteen eighties and continues to provide time sharing service to individuals and businesses around the world Over the course of several
Antarctica Sets Record High Temperature: 65 Degrees
"This is a startling it was hotter in an article last Thursday than it was in New Mexico sixty five degrees Fahrenheit according to researchers in the Antarctic peninsula it's a record high temperature if it can be verified NPR's called wire explains when you think about a sixty five degree day plenty of things probably come to mind Antarctica likely is not one of them and there's a good reason why that would make it the hottest temperature that we have seen over the link to record that we have for an article that's Randy serve any he specializes in weather and climate extremes for the world meteorological organization Arjun time researchers reported the temperature at the very northern tip of Antarctica and it's partly sermones role to verify that report we'll get a panel of experts put together yet are the best in the world they will look at the data they'll discuss it and tear it apart and then they will recommend to me as to whether or not this should be a valid observation now it's also important to remember that this is just one data point here and it's the result of very particular weather conditions but it does match up with what scientists have been seeing their overtime it's one of the fastest warming areas on the planet Alexander I served as the head of Antarctic sciences at the National Science Foundation she says the region has been warming for decades and the previous record height was reported just a few years ago this warming climate requires some practical adjustments for the researchers we we've definitely had to kind of re think a bit what we provide people with that means more geared to deal with the kind of rain and sleet the warmer weather brings I've been going down for ten years and even I have seen the changes I bring different clothes now do I certain says there are also other bigger consequences of this warmer weather in Antarctica contributes to a warmer sea water in general which means melting glaciers and rising sea UL's worldwide it also means more extreme events for serving and his team to verify when I started this project all the way back in two thousand and seven I thought we would have maybe an evaluation once every few years and now we're having multiple observations of extreme climate every year so don't be surprised if we see yet another record high in Antarctica soon called wired

A Shortwave Christmas Carol
"Hello anybody there so matty. Yes ma'am last week Brit and I connected to a radio station she's visa. I am radio in Pittsburgh. Pennsylvania have a conversation with space physicist and electrical engineer Nathaniel result. Thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here and in two two thousand fourteen. His research took him to Antarctica cool. Yeah home to the South Pole and hub of scientific activity with research stations and field camps spread across the continent. New Zealand has a station down there. Several European countries due to scientists are asking questions. You can only answer in Arca and the Southern Ocean this time of year about wildlife wildlife like penguins. Yeah sure like penguins microbiology. tectonics the northern lights. Daniel was down there to look at the earth's magnetic field and polar regions. I picture this whole space. Mattie like science summer camp but spread across a desolate icebound landscape. What a dream? Yeah you're kind kind of summer camp and these people. They're far from home. which can be really tough? During the holidays so nathaniel when he was down there took part in a musical tradition tradition. That cues up every year on this day December. Twenty four South Pole station. We're ready and standing by thinks the Antarctic a Christmas carol basically the different stations in Antarctica. Sing to each other over shortwave radio. Oh my God this is legitimately the cutest thing you're seeing over the radio Transmission was from the Amundsen Scott South Pole station ahmanson shadow yacht ought. Here's a Christmas Carol from the Italian station. Mario's a Kelly singing an Italian Christmas Carol. I really liked service. I firmly believe this cute Nathaniel would have to agree with you and it's a beautiful thing and you know the different stations and people they have to have to watch out for each other because it's it's difficult environment down there and annual listening at McMurdo Station in a Blue Penguin Hoodie. Sure I'll add wondered if this caroline could be heard beyond Antarctica by shortwave listeners. And other parts of the world he wanted to know how far can these transmissions Israeli travel so how far away were people able to listen well. Before the Caroline Begin thin you'll put out an alert to shortwave radio listener saying hey if you I can hear this email us a lot of snow and people did. They were able to tune in. He got emails from the Netherlands. South America places far away from Antarctica. Some people were able to catch snippets of this singing at the bottom of the world so today. On the show shortwave. podcasts looks at shortwave radio how it works how it travels. And how anything of result is leveraging. A community of shortwave radio listeners for science. Emily Kwong are short. We've expert is nathaniel. Yes he's an assistant professor of physics and Engineering at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. Okay so obviously I know shortwave the charming daily science podcast. But tell me about shortwave. As in shortwave radio so since since the nineteen hundreds we've been using radio waves to communicate. The waves are all different sizes the lower the wave's frequency the longer the wavelength one. Of the unique characteristics. Of shortwave shortwave. Radio is that it can travel. The radio. Waves can travel long distances very long distances around the world because there are three to thirty megahertz hurts in frequency they travel through space to this electrically charged part of our atmosphere called the ionosphere and are reflected or refracted back down to Earth. If we didn't did not have the atmosphere these shortwave signals would travel off into space and not be able to travel around the globe but luckily for us. They can travel around the globe. They they propagate far distances and those with receivers on earth are able to listen. Nathaniel loves shortwave. Because you don't need a lot of equipment to send and capture one of these transmissions oh it can be incredibly simple. You need a transmitter on one side and a receiver on the other and a decent antenna and when I say A transmitter there. There are some people who they make their goal to talk as far around the world is possible with that as little as equipment as possible as low power as possible so maybe using a quarter of a awas and ten dollars worth of parts people are able to send signals that. Get the go all the way around the globe. This is the ultimate Lo fi form of communication gathering. Yeah and that communication could be anything broadcast propaganda spice stations emergency information weather reports rag chewing which is a term mm to describe people just talking about their daily life so radio twitter. Yeah the transmission just has to fall within the right frequency range to count ashore wave and there's an international community of hobby radio operators who seek out a special license from their respective governments to do this. That's called Ham Radio Ham. Yeah that's the hobby Of using this radio so nathaniel discovered that community on a boy Scout Jamboree Ham radio operator had set up a station in the middle of the woods and just turned all his crackling and buzzing sounds coming out of a radio and I heard him talking to these faraway places and and that was just really fascinating fascinating to me and he was hooked got his license in Nineteen Ninety Eight. Just a teenager transmitting to whoever's listening in the northern New Jersey New York metropolitan area area so just pure bruce springsteen propaganda it was mostly just his call son and seventy three. This is W. Two and AF whiskey to November Alpha Foxtrot threaten seventy-three means best regards. It's a pretty common ham. Radio sign off eventually he upgraded to a better transmitter through a wire out the window of his bedroom and attached hatched tree in his front yard and he managed to get a hold of a station in Hungary and it was just a very short contact. But you know that was pretty neat you just throw a wire out your window. And you're able to talk to guy in Hungary and and it worked in these moments stayed with him propelling his scientific methodology and his his career cool. Okay so tell me a little bit about that. How his nathaniel used shortwave for science in a lot of interesting ways because disturbances happening in the ionosphere on a sphere space weather solar wind conditions? All of that would affect radio waves so in Grad school he was able to show how a solar flare caused aradio blackout so cool. Yeah and during the big two thousand seventeen solar eclipse which I missed because it was cloudy. Tragedy so sad but Nathaniel hosted a community science experiment through his group Ham side. The group measured how the eclipse affected the transmission of medium and high frequency radio waves. And the way he's using radio for scientific inquiry is so innovative that this year the National Science Foundation awarded him a one point. Three million dollar grant deign to do what well he wants to bring. Universities and this network of Ham radio operators together to track. What's going on in the ionosphere where short waves propagate in a more day to day way which we we don't really do right now? No not really. We don't really understand what happens on short timescales like why is the fear doing this in New York City but doing doing something else in Pennsylvania overhead and Pennsylvania and. Why is that important to understand the ionosphere to that level of detail? Well we as a planet Senate are really dependent on things happening in space and disturbances in the ionosphere do affect communication satellites global positioning systems. which are used to land planes all these tools? We rely on to keep us safe and connected and so it's very important to try to understand how everything is is is connected together in order to make this systems more robust and and in order to make them work. And in order to you know transmit Christmas carols around the world essential I think a lot of Ham radio for me has always been about connecting people from different parts of the world together. And and you know if you if you even look at like why Ham radio exists if you actually look in the the laws I believe. It says that it's for international goodwill and It's important to try and promote this international goodwill kwon. Do you think our podcast connects people all around the world. I mean we don't have three million listeners. That's how how many people listen to him radio now yet. Not with that attitude okay. I know world domination is your project but I will say I got into radio because I enjoyed tuning in and not knowing what I was going to hear our podcast definitely. Does that help so I think so so from our team to whoever is out there listening in in the world happy holidays. Happy Holidays

Turning Carbon Dioxide Into Plastic Dashboards
"And so we end as we began with climate and c._o. Two here is professor. Geoffrey coates at cornell who's both making plastics from come dockside died and designing new and better batteries. I that recaptured c._o. Two so we've developed a catalyst catalyst is an agent that helps a chemical reaction. Take place and with another molecule. We've been able to make plastics directly from the carbon dioxide plastics like are they thin like a bag or are they solid so we can make a range of plastic season carbon dioxide. It depends on this other molecule that we add in one case he said up to fifty percent carbon dioxide and those materials are relatively soft at room temperature in fact their main uses to be used as a foam in a in in a urethane. Obviously you've done this labar trae but has it been developed practically so that it's working now somewhere with a one of my former students and a local businessperson burson we founded a company called novermber back about a decade ago and after many years of development we now have a commercial variety of this polymer which has now been licensed by large company called aramco. I'm what do you make these are materials that are called polyols and they're used in making things like foam mattresses. Who says maybe the soft material. The dashboard of your car can also be used in coatings and adhesives. Does it use much c._o. Two again it depends on the material. The two main classes material are either fifty percent carbon dioxide or about forty three percent carbon dioxide so it does use a lot of c._o. Into a lot of c._o. Two so if you look over the years the experiments you've done they develop she made you've taken a fair amount of c._o. Two out of the atmosphere. I mean obviously if we've commercialized that we've done this on on multi scale. The hope is that the material becomes commercially very successful and a great to be able to capture even more c._o. Two so so how many people are copying you well there. There's a few companies. Few companies were from the point of view of the world wants to have c._o. Two used up it would be encouraging if they had been people emulating example yeah as you can imagine we have a very strong patent portfolio that restricts the use of this only two companies license. It is their encouragement from say washington d._c. Or what you're doing is shaking his head. That's very interesting. I should add that the the u._s. Funding agencies have been incredibly generous. Both the national science foundation and the department of energy provided the funding that allow this work to happen one imagine men who is carbon so ubiquitous that there would be. This kind of effort made my turn you now to batteries this and i'll give you an example of the kind of work. That's been going on in australia this professor tom mash meyer who's professor of chemistry from the university of sydney developing epping a kind of jail. 'cause we think of batteries having liquids acid liquids which are hard to handle with a jail. You can build into <hes> houses. You can have in buildings so the fabric of the building is actually a giant battery. Is this sort of thing that you're trying to work towards so we work on a part of the battery. That's called the electrolyte and then as you just mentioned often this is made from a liquid that causes potential safety hazards if the battery artery ruptures and it's hot organic burst into flames and so what we're trying to do is instead of a gel. We're replacing it with a polymer. Given the polymers have no vapor for pressure there quite a bit safer and also can help in some of the fundamental operations of the battery and can you have scale as i mentioned you know in buildings so one of the big advantages of polymers the ways to process summer very well worked out and so to be able to make thin films of these as the electrolyte is actually pretty the easy on just imagine there being on tops of buildings and solar rays and the storage is built into the fabric of the building itself.

What Trump proposed in his 2020 budget
"Grilled President Trump's acting budget director a day after he laid out the administration's four point seven trillion dollar budget, which pushes the federal deficit passed one trillion dollars. Trump wants more than eight billion dollars for the barrier with Mexico. He's also asking for a big boost in military spending, that's alongside steep cuts in health care and economic support programs for the poor the plan also retains the huge Republican tax cuts for the wealthy and the richest corporations that the Congressional Budget Office has projected will add one point nine trillion dollars to the deficit over a ten year period. Massachusetts Democrat Seth Bolton. Pressed acting budget director Russ vote on the consequences of that tax cut. I'm just curious how. How many of Mr. Trump's eight point six billion dollar walls? Could he build with one point nine trillion dollars? I haven't done the math on that more than two hundred twenty two hundred twenty two hundred twenty miles two hundred and twenty of his full walls. Now just to compare that to some democratic priorities. What do you think one point nine trillion dollars would do for education funding in the United States that make a difference in our kids lives? We believe this this budget fully funds. What is necessary to continue to educate? Our children. Washington state congresswoman Paul pointed to the massive increase in military spending proposed by Trump, including a huge increase in the overseas. Contingency operations also known as the Pentagon's slush fund in this budget. How much does the president proposed cutting the department of defense department slush fund in in twenty fiscal year? Twenty we propose increasing the how much are you proposing to increase it by increase it up to from sixty nine billion to one hundred and sixty four billion. So you're proposing to increase the slush fund that has been called that by the president's chief of staff, and by our our chairman of the Armed Services Committee by one hundred and thirty eight percent to one hundred and sixty five billion over twenty nineteen jay-paul noted that last fall, the Pentagon failed its first ever comprehensive audit and asked whether it shouldn't come into compliance before. Trump grants it more higher spending levels. Democrats also denounced the massive cuts in health care. The Trump budget proposal, including one and a half trillion dollars to Medicaid and eight hundred forty five billion to Medicare over the next ten years, Texas, Democrats Sheila jackson-lee said the budget targets the most vulnerable Americans this budget attacks the most vulnerable in this nation. It is unequal and wealth. The tax scam is still the most powerful undermining of growth and prosperity in this nation by pushing money toward the top zero point one percent or the top one percent and leaving those who can add to the economy along the highway of despair this budget will not go. Texas democrat Lloyd Doggett twenty two cuts in federal education spending with reference to education, I'm greatly troubled that at a time when we face a physician shortage, a growing shortage you propose to eliminate all of the loan forgiveness programs that are available to get those physicians as well as law enforcement and teachers and under served areas. This is a great step backwards as are your cuts in student financial assistance, Silicon Valley congressman ro Khanna pressed vote on cuts to federal scientific agencies. And you're cutting the National Institute of health budget by four hundred four point nine billion dollars. Is that correct? We ha- we bring the national institutes of health down to about thirty three billion. You see why I mean not trying to be parties? So DC's why some people may think that you don't believe in science and technology when when you're cutting the National Science Foundation by a billion when you're cutting the national. By four billion, which the Republican congress by the increase two billion last. Democrats accused Trump of going back on his campaign promise to protect Medicare after he introduced the two thousand twenty budget the calls for steep cuts in Medicare payments to hospitals. House. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the budget embodies longstanding Republican ambitions to make Medicare wither on the vine Pelosi said in a statement after exploding the deficit with his GOP tax scam for the rich President Trump is once again trying to ransack Medicare, Medicaid and the health care of seniors and families across America. This budget says promises kept said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York balderdash.

Slow like years, so by controlling the size of the Nanno, silver political. It becomes a way to kind of be a delivery mechanism on wear and how fast we should deliver silver to kill bacteria. For example, there's a number of products out there, whether they're socks or running shorts or even underwear that people want to present odors. So people have started using Nanno silver in these fibers as a natural way of doing it. And so your underwear doesn't smell your socks. Don't smell. They're putting it on the inside layer, then cloth diapers that touches the baby's bottom. So you don't get rashes on babies, and it's all because of the possibility of Nanno silver to actively released silver ions that kill bacteria pulse of the planet is made possible in part by the center for earth, and environmental nanotechnology and the National Science Foundation.
