"nine meters" Discussed on I Know Dino: The Big Dinosaur Podcast
"The expansion and contraction of the ground quote offers a likely mechanism that evidently brings hard material from within the underlying winton formation up to the soil surface. Hard material like fossils. Exactly corey. explain this to us when we did our tour there too which is basically like the freeze thaw cycle that like tears apart roads in colder places it also brings bones up to the surface but i thought it was funny that they had a double caveat there that it was like likely mechanism. Which evidently does this because it's such a weird mechanism. We don't talk about fossils other places just like popping up out of the dirt now usually. They're really stuck in there. Yeah and you'd see a little bit exposed. Then you have to dig down and get him out but an era manga that literally like pop up out of the ground. In some cases they pop up out of the ground and then they excavate because like one popped out and then you can dig down find the other ones. So that's what they ended up doing with cooper. They didn't all pop up out of the ground. They'd actually did. Do some digging enough to let you know something interesting was there. Yeah i love that though. Like imagine if that happened everywhere like one popped up and was there's bones here just so you know the amazing and it also kind of explains how like all these farmers and ranchers end up discovering the bones and like with cooper it was discovered by someone on their own land and then there were like well. We should do something about this and ended up. Basically starting the erromango natural history museum because there were likely they're a dinosaur bones popping up out of our labs so cool. I love that story so much so in the end they did find quite a few of cooper's bones the specimen numbers. Emf one or two in case you're wondering after the ero manga museum the m four. They found a complete right humerus which is really helpful for size estimates because we have those for some of the other australian titanic over the got a right right and left pubis right and left a partial left scapula a partial left humorous and both partial famara mao pretty decent They also referred a few bones from other localities to australia. Titan would they refer the got a complete femur from one spot a partial humerus from another spot and then a third spot that had like a whole collection they got a fragmentary femur and the some vertebral centrum fragments and some rib fragments. Nice so you can paint a pretty good picture. Then of the sorbonne yeah. It is a little bit confusing to me though. Because i keep wanting to refer to it as cooper but really cooper is just the one that's the type for eight and the rest of them are just australia titan. Couponing the australia titan like australia. But i think it should be australto titan right. I think it's like astrolabe titan like vitor. yeah. I think you're right. I've been trying to do that. But the whole time i was reading it i was saying in my head in a different way. You get right. Yeah but yeah. So cooper is one individual has the nickname of cooper but then other specimens that are found to be. The same as cooper are found to be the same species as cooper. They're together they're known as astro taking. Yeah and technically cooper is the holiday type of austria titan so if any if there are differences in the future. Those just will stop being australia. Titan in addition to dinosaur fossils they also found some really pretty fossilized ferns as well as would. That was fossilized and some sewer pipe tracks. Did they think they're from cooper. I don't know too hard to tell. Yeah and it's i couldn't tell exactly how close it wasn't like cooper was walking and then like died at the end of the track way. It's a little different. I think we actually talk about that. With dean lomax a little bit. Yeah traumatic or not so are pods but other animals. Yeah yeah rarely rarely happens but it could be. And i think the fossilized tracks they described as partial tracks. So i'm not sure how much detail they can get anyway but there is like a moshe part like it was a heavy enough animal was like moving out a bunch of muck over to the side one at stepped so yeah so we're is a good guess at a minimum. They estimate that. Cooper is around ninety three to ninety six million years old which puts at the beginning of the late cretaceous. That's when the big dinosaurs were coming out. Yeah the titanic source for sure and there were some early cretaceous too but yeah the late cretaceous really got going. The authors talked quite a bit about how they weren't going to give a body size estimate. And how even giving any sort of body size estimate in relation to like femur or humerus circumference is fraught in going to give bad results. So people shouldn't do it but it is clearly the largest australian so our pot and they are comfortable with saying later papers. If more fossils are found they'll come up with something. Yeah i mean especially when you're talking about length like we only have a few partial centrum like you're not going to be able to estimate its length. You need so many more vertebrae to figure that kind of thing out but when comparing the humorous. It's by far the biggest of any australian or pod. Australia titan is one and a half meters or four foot eleven inches long. The humira yeah humorous. So just the upper arm bone that compares to diamond tina sorace savannahs and winton titan. Which are all about one point. One point two meters long. So you're talking not quite fifty percent bigger but like thirty to forty percent bigger than any other. Australian sewer ponds that have been described and all three of those are from winton. Queensland is about a one day drive north of ehrmann and we know that 'cause we drove the other way from winton to air manga in one day was all that was the longest hardest day of driving though because it was the most one lane roads and there was one segment where the road wasn't a road for like twenty miles and we were driving on the shelter because they were reconstructing the road but it was worth it. Yeah i think we made it just before sunset. We were nervous that we weren't going to make it before sunset and like kangaroos. We're going to storm the road and we were gonna destroy our car and kills of kangaroos but fortunately they just stood on the side of the road. Staring at us as the sun was setting. Which was very yuri. Some of them looked sleepy. Yeah but some of them looked like they were just getting ready. They're starting to wake up and getting going. Yeah anyway i digress. So the femur of osterloh titan is about one point nine meters long or a little bit under six foot three inches which is basically my exact height. so that's how big the femur as that's a very large femur. It's also much longer than any other australian sewer pod but we don't have as good of comparisons with those. We have better comparison in the humorous and even bigger than that. So that's cooper's femur is one point nine meters but the complete referred femur from a different ostro titan is estimated to be two point one five meters or about seven foot one inches long so cooper was the baby compared to this one at least yes over two meters is a a rarefied club for femurs in any animal whatsoever. There only a few sewer pods that break. That barrier since cooper is so large. I'm guessing probably an adult. Yeah i think that's what they're guessing too. I don't remember them. I'm.

The Problem With Track & Field World Records
"What goes into a world record. Obviously it has to be an incredible performance. Everything has to come together just right. They don't happen very often. When bob beamon broke the world's record in the long jump in nineteen sixty eight. See my previous episode about that. The conditions were perfect. He had the maximum allowable. Tailwind it was at a high altitude in mexico city. He had perfect form and he put together his best jump ever at just the right time since the advent of competitive athletics nine thousand nine hundred twelve. The international association of athletic federation's has been keeping world records in every event. There's been a progression of world records. As people of incrementally bested previous performances. Most world records are only broken by less than one percent. The greatest single increase in a world record was the aforementioned bob beamon jump which beat the previous world record by six point five percent so that is sort of the world record of world records. Each event has a very different progression in how frequent and how recent world records get set. And this gets into the real heart of what i wanna talk about. You should expect to see world records being broken at a slower and slower rate over time as humans. Approach the limit of human performance should become harder and harder to break records. Records will require more luck and more people who have the perfect physique in the very peak of their careers. But this isn't quite what happened in some events there hasn't been a new world record set in over thirty years. You're shulte set the world record in the men's discus in one thousand nine hundred eighty six at seventy four point zero eight meters to put that into perspective. The gold medalist in the two thousand nineteen world championships had a distance of sixty seven point. Five nine meters a full six point five meters or twenty one feet short of the world record the men's hammer throw was also said in nineteen eighty-six yuri set up of the soviet union through the hammer. Eighty six point seven meters. The two thousand nineteen world champion through it. Only eighty point five meters that six point two meters less than the world record. The oldest existing world record in track and field is the women's eight hundred meters. Your meal acrostic viola of czechoslovakia set a world's record finishing the eight hundred in one minute. Fifty three point two eight seconds. That's almost five seconds. Faster than the two thousand nineteen world champion. You might have noticed something that all these really old records have in common. They're all held by athletes from former communist countries. If you're thinking that these records might be tainted by performance enhancing drugs. You aren't alone.
The Black Shark 4 Smartphone Rises From The Deep
"All right so this article comes to us from the android police. Apparently gaming phones are getting more and more popular. I wonder why could it be. People want more power in a smaller screen. The post who. I don't know if powerful computer the complete of video games honor or like a consul. It's it seems to me like it's smartphones. Time to rise and while zombie is keeping up the pace with black shark series. The latest iteration the black sharp for an for pro have popped up in a chinese you can pre-order one. Today with the phones set release to china on thursday. The twenty fifth and international release date has not been set yet. But what what are you looking at stat. Wise here while the black shark. Four pro uses a snapdragon eight processor. Qualcomm's biggest and bad available. It's paired to either eight gigs or twelve. Gigs of ultraviolet fast. Lpddr five ram with two hundred fifty six gigs of storage both models. But those aren't exactly hard to find these days. The more obvious give way that this is giving phone are the dedicated mechanical shoulder buttons on the side flight. The locks away to them pop up like two shoulder buttons on a black shark three they can be bound to touch areas on screen for integration with really more or less any game but if you want the mechanical shoulder buttons you now have that option. The four pro is six point. Six seven inch a. m. o. l. e. the ten eighty p screen with a maximum refresh rate of one. Hundred forty four hertz. Beating most phones it also has to zones of pressure sensitivity as a nema pressure applied. Not just touch sensitive allowing for further integration into games that can support it. It's battery as a forty five hundred m h typical for phone this size but supports fast charging at a completely bonkers. Honored twani watts with a charger included in the box. Family says it can charge ninety percent of the battery in a little more than half an hour. It looks like the video that goes along with two well in terms of cameras on the pro. They have a sixty four megapixel main shooter. Eight megapixel ultra wide five megapixel macro with a twenty megapixel centered. Front camera terms of style to flat. Black version actually looks fairly down. Nice to notice the side buttons. Led triangle logo on the back stays on lit. You'd have a hard time telling its gaming phone. Of course that goes out the window to get the so empty version of its auto translated by the way unsure of the official name. It's layered semi transparent glass shifts around as you look at it and much more flashy but not unappealing way. The phones a chunky and nine point nine meters. But that's enough to include a headphone jack in sight mounted fingerprint reader. The dual sim. Radio works with five g for absolutely intense sessions. You can't quick bond the sold separately cooling module at cedar black shark four pro a starts at four thousand. I'm trying to remember the exact It can't be the chinese currency that they have. But if you're talking about us dollars be black shark for pro is at six hundred fifteen dollars and six hundred ninety dollars respectively as the non. It's it's kind of slightly scaled down version Looks pretty interesting In terms of the i it drops one of the cameras. It keeps the shoulder buttons most of the rest of the hardware and it's slightly cheaper. Probably not a five hundred dollar range for a gaming smartphone. That's unheard of clean. We're sitting here looking at foods. The latest and greatest thousand plus in in north china pop out gaming smartphones that are packed full of hardware intact for like seven hundred between five and seven hundred eighty s manageable. It off but yeah. If you're looking for gaming phone well you might just have to wait for this to be released internationally. But if you're in china Details in terms of prices and such and selections and preorders are available in a show notes for today's episode. So looks pretty cool all right. Moving on to an article begat from techcrunch facebook's clubhouse rival looks a lot like clubhouse right now in and because facebook is a clubhouse rival reported on net like all the way back in february in new york times. Didn't a bunch of other people did but what that product look like or how it will work have been questioned that have remained unanswered however new screenshots of a facebook audio product still under development shows what appears to be a live audio broadcasts experience. It's more of an extension of facebook's existing messenger rooms rather than a standalone app experience. Facebook confirmed with techcrunch. The images are indeed examples of the companies exploratory efforts because they don't represent alive product at this time but the gamut we all know the company said also that detailing what product look like based on these images would be inaccurate ob tech crush said screw. Were pushing him anyway. But keep in mind. It is in development features. That are very different in anything and everything could still change drastically between now and then but images at least help. Face their demonstrate. How facebook is thinking about live audio. Where such a social experience. Good fit within facebook's existing and that's worth considering considering that i don't think facebook wants to make another app i think they just want everybody to be on one app and use that so we do have some pictures that go along with it. Looks like they have like button. It says choose the room type where it's like live audio broadcasts in audio only room to listeners audio where you can start a private audio room with friends. A video button reconstructive private video room with friends in an you can also add people in but it looks very much like Like clubhouse that. I'm still trying to get used to somebody interfaces of the room so it's it's kind of interesting Speak are shown to tap the room. What a represented with a larger circular profile picks room listeners appear below is also a followed by speaker section leads the audience section again much like clubhouse but obviously subject to change the way it's being developed that would allow for rooms that anyone on facebook join Rooms could be accessible from facebook itself. Meaning you would not have to switch to messenger to join the room. When not expanded to full screen room with displays title number speakers in total listeners. He can get an idea of the rooms popularity. So Yeah lebron even looking at it tested it out. Don't secret facebook. Ceo mark zuckerberg is both on audio. Of course in fact he's already appeared on clubhouse. A couple of times recently spoke about the product. Chris social audio in clubhouse room hosted last week by former techcrunch editor josh casino investor at signal fire

So all told another great reminder. This is a test flight. Second time we've flown starship in this configuration. We've got a lot of good data in the primary objective to demonstrate control of the vehicle in the subsonic reentry Looked to be very good and we will take a lot out of that.

Britain woke at four am to an eerie sound they ventured out and discovered an animal that never seen before his thing and attacking a goat on their farm. After rescuing the goat they took a photo of the beast and promptly posted it online. The animal was four-legged and fluffy. It moved like a dog but had a face and markings like a raccoon. It turns out there unwanted visitor was a canoe Katie sometimes called a raccoon dog. To learn more about these unusual critters we talked by email to Jennifer Andrew, a member of the carnivore team at Zuid Lanta she helps take care of zoo, Atlanta's to to NUKII or and Loki. Zoo, Atlanta is just one of two zoos in the United States that houses to not the other is the Oklahoma City Zoo. Indra explained to new key our dogs genetically and morphological logically speaking they get the nickname raccoon dog primarily because of their similar coloring and coat patterns. The only other true similarity raccoons is that they occupy the same niche as raccoons do in nature even though they live on different partners. To NUKII range in size from about one point, five to two feet long that's about point four, five, two point, nine meters with a tail adding another six inches or one point, five meters they weigh anywhere from eight to twenty, two pounds around three and a half to ten kilos therefore can be golden great or reddish brown but their shoulders, legs, and the tips of their tails are blocked and their facial markings are similar to a raccoons including the black mask around the eyes. They're originally from eastern Asia including Japan, which is where the word to new key comes from, and where the animal is a cultural icon images of have appeared in everything from folklore and literature to anime and advertising the mythological versions sometimes called Buckeye Nukii, our spirit creatures, tricksters, and shape shifter's that love gold and are often depicted with a big belly and a particularly large scrotum. Many modern Japanese businesses, displays statues of to represent prosperity and good luck.

When they're in the wild Turkey to picky about meals as forager's they'll eat anything from frogs, birds, and rats to berries and carrion that is vet animals to not have been known to forage in garbage cans or pick over roadkill areas inhabited by humans. But do life is a little different, not only art Niki given different food to eat including kibble hard boiled eggs, veggies and fish. But because they're naturally forager's and a non foraging, setting their caregivers look for ways to make feeding time a little more challenging. Andrew said, we like to scatter their diet throughout their habitats to encourage natural foraging behaviors. They also enjoy interacting with problem-solving enrichment devices that encourage behaviors such as biting, chewing, ripping shredding, smelling digging, and dragging.
What Are The World's Biggest, Baddest Jigsaw Puzzles?
"Even before. It became a popular way to while away the hours days and weeks during isolation putting together. Jigsaw Puzzles was a favourite family activity. But did you know that? Jigsaw Puzzles have their origin in education. Sir John Spills Berry an English engraver and map maker in the mid. Seventeen hundred is credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle in seventeen seventy six by attaching a map of the world to a piece of wood then cutting the country's out teachers used the maps to teach geography to their students and a recreational activity was born spills berry would hardly recognize his creation today in the early part of the twentieth century. Jigsaw Puzzles were used as marketing tools often given away or sold for mere pennies today companies. Still use puzzles for creative marketing. Take Kodak for instance. It's selling what it. Claims is the quote world largest jigsaw puzzle. We HAVE TO ADMIT. This thing is pretty huge. The fifty one thousand three hundred piece puzzle features twenty-seven injuries from around the world and when completed measures twenty eight point five feet by six point. Two five feet. That's eight point six meters by one point nine meters and this beast costs more than four hundred dollars but all due respect to the Kodak Jigsaw puzzle. The world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area. According to Guinness World Records was put together in Dubai in July of twenty eighteen. The puzzle was an honor of the year of Ziyad a year long tribute to the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. The late Shahid there are more than twelve thousand pieces in the puzzle which was an image of Zayed the official record size measured sixty five thousand nine hundred and five point one seven square feet which is six thousand one hundred twenty two point six eight square meters putting together. Jigsaw puzzles is a Greek group activity but one thousand six hundred students of the University of Economics Ad Hoc Human City in Vietnam took it to the next level. When they completed the jigsaw puzzle with the most pieces on record five hundred fifty one thousand two hundred and thirty two to be exact when it was finished the puzzle measured just over. Forty eight by seventy six feet about fourteen by twenty three meters. It took the students seventeen hours to create the massive puzzle which featured a lotus flower with six petals. But what about the hardest jigsaw puzzle? Ever it contains only nine pieces and it's called the puzzle nine it was designed by Asaka. It includes a small board. The nine pieces include right angles and curved edges. That fit together in several combinations. Think Tetris but way harder. The challenge is getting the last piece to fit. It's nearly impossible to fit all the pieces on the board. It took Chris Ramsey a magician video creator and master puzzle or two hours nine minutes to solve the ice nine and by his own description. He was completely exhausted. By the end of the experience. You Sokha created another equally. Difficult puzzle called the Jigsaw Puzzle. Twenty nine the challenge here is to fit twenty nine pieces into a five by five inch. That's twelve by twelve centimeter trae. It comes with five corner pieces. Just let that sink in. Then there's the largest hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzle Guinness record held by Dave Edmunds England. Who created a forty thousand seven hundred sixty three piece puzzle celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the puzzle which featured thirty-three Images of Jubilee celebrations was twenty by eight feet? That's six by two and a half meters. When completed though it collapsed soon after Evans completed it took him and force. More than sixteen days to rebuild the puzzle and move at Sandringham where it went on display and was confirmed as the Guinness World record holder. We spoke by email with Caitlin vesper records manager with Guinness World Records North America. She said one of the main criteria for all Guinness World Records titles is that they must be breakable. Every record titled S- monitored is open to being challenged which allows for all kinds of record breaking opportunities all over the world. The Guinness record for most Jigsaw puzzle pieces tattooed on the human body belongs to the aptly named enigma. Sometimes known as Paul Laurence. Who'S A sideshow performer? Actor musician originally from Seattle in two thousand eleven enigmas set the record for having two thousand one hundred twenty three puzzle pieces tattooed on his body from head to toe in no word on whether anyone comes close to second but many puzzle records are held by companies such as the record for the largest spherical jigsaw puzzle. It measured fifteen point seven feet. That's four point. Seven seven meters in circumference and it was made by unit industrial limited in Hong Kong and featured scene from Winnie the Pooh vesper said brands and businesses. Come to US looking to harness the power of record-breaking to commemorate anniversaries and celebrations or to highlight the launch of a new product. Whole communities can come together to attempt to record to a like in March of two thousand nineteen when more than one thousand seven hundred people formed the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece on record a I. The record raised awareness for autism spectrum disorder. The puzzle pieces the symbol for the autismspeaks organization. Vesper explained each Guinness World. Records title has a set of guidelines. That must be followed. The record for the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece is a great example to highlight. This is considered one of our largest human image categories and the idea is to have a group of people gathered together to form a recognizable image. We define a jigsaw puzzle piece as an oddly shaped interlocking and Tessa leading piece designed to be part of a larger picture. The human image to be created would need to be instantly recognizable as a puzzle piece and not an entire puzzle. This record title can be broken if another group creates same image with a larger group of people. Anybody up for the challenge.

They need to burn off energy and socialized dogs. Hello Dog Park. Walks are an important part of your dogs. Daily routine and that means you're pups leash is a crucial canine accessory. But there are a dizzying number of options. So we he talked to an expert about her favourite leash and why she recommends it Susie. Aga- is a nationally recognized dog trainer an expert in dog behavior modification and the founder of Atlanta dog trainer. She has decades of dog training experience and has clear preferences about leashes for starters. She never recommends a retractable leash. She explained they're very popular leashes but everyone hates them. It's irritating for the dogs on the leash. They've got constant tension on them and it's irritating for humans in the community most pet owners. Don't ruin their dogs. They just let them wrap up. Whoever's walking by retractable leashes are dangerous? Dogs and humans. How many times have you been strolling along in the park minding your business? When suddenly there's a Doberman Pinscher staring at you a good twenty to thirty feet or six to nine meters away from its owner also retractable? Leads can hurt you the dog Walker. Should you attempt to grab it in case of an emergency it could give you a rope. Burn and be leashes are infamous for snapping due to strain or mechanical mechanical failure and whipping back with high force toward the walkers body and face Aga- also doesn't recommend the slip lead which is basically a slipknot allowing knowing you to slip your dog's head through the loop and poll to tighten Think of those leashes you get at the vet but they can be very dangerous. She said I don't like them. Because it puts that's a lot of pressure on the dogs. Trachea can cause a lot of damage. Aga's leash recommendation is a basic six foot or approximately two meter braided leather leash with brass fittings the clips onto the dog's collar or harness. Whichever the dog wears when walking Aga- says six feet is plenty long for every breed of dog to get away to use the bathroom the only time she doesn't recommend the brass fittings is for small dogs because the brass can be too heavy for those smaller dogs try stainless steel or aluminum fittings fittings instead ag- explained a leather leashes last a really long time? I've got one leash. That's fifteen years old. Most leashes available in the market are made of reinforced. Nylon or cloth webbing some even have carbon-fiber with an into them others are made of nylon rope. Aga- says those are fine but to be prepared hard to keep buying them she said nylon leashes even the ones that are sturdy. webbing are fine but they don't last. As long as leather dogs can chew through them and then the owners

This star moving at hyperdrive-speeds was spat out from our black hole
"Of the ticket a style that's being flung out of the Milky Way Galaxy Alexey at a record breaking speed of six million kilometers per hour by the supermassive black hole at the Galactic Centre a report in the monthly notices the Roll Economical Society claims. The unfortunate star was sent on its course through gravitational dads with secretaries ace tax more than five million years ago the style which is now some twenty nine thousand light years from Earth is traveling some ten times faster the most stars in the Milky Way including the son in fact. It's moving so fast. I believe the Milky Way in about one hundred million years never to return one of the study's authors emeritus professor Gary that cost us from the Australian National University. Says is the stars encounter with a black hole occurred at a time when humans were first learning to Walk Upright. He says in astronomical terms star will be leaving galaxy fairly sued and will likely travel through the emptiness of intergalactic space for eternity the Milky Way central supermassive black hole secretaries a star has some four four point three million times the mass of our Sun. It's located some twenty six thousand light years away in the direction of the Constellation secretaries authors discovered discovered this hapless style while using the three point nine meter anglo-australian telescope at the siding Spring Observatory to search for the shorted remains of small galaxies orbiting. The Milky Way is part of the southern Stella Stream Spectroscopy survey follow up observations within made with the A and US two point three minute telescope confirming the stars. Extreme speed did the customer and colleagues then trace the Star's journey back to its point of origin in the Galactic Center. It's this must have originally been in a binary system with a companion star and this system ventured too close to the black hole secretaries ace ta which then captured one of the Stars Too Close Orbit or sling shutting the other one out of the system custom and very high speed. DACOSTA says it's great to be able to confirm thirty or prediction. That stars really can be flying out of a galaxy by the supermassive black hole at the Galactic Center. I'm part of it. The national team that is using the anglo-australian telescope to get philosophies and abundances for stars in stellar streams the stuff streams Remnants of small galaxies have been ripped apart as they fall into is advertised on potential and by studying them we can learn about the distribution of doc mattering our galaxy for example but for every field. We don't necessarily have a complete set of targets for the thought so we used the other spare fathers to look at potentially other stars of interest and we found this stuff. That's has a velocity moving away from us as over a thousand cuomo specific and that was very unexpected and exciting discovery. Picked your interest in other words very much so Particularly the stars brought enough that the European Guy Satellite Commissioner a very accurate promotion. The motion in the plight of the sky is distinct from emotional life on us when we combine that with the observed. A lot of thoughts. Lusty you can trace Ashley Orbit back in time. And the orbit. Effect Exactly intersects with the center of the Galaxy. So we're very sure that this does being flung long out of the standard of the galaxy matches a prediction for a long time. Now that's been massive. Black Holes will blackouts. Generally I guess under the right circumstances weren't gobble Lapa Adventures too close but will in fact fling it out. That's right. There was a piper written first by Jack Hills in not an idea actually before four the Central Collin Galaxy was really well established in which he predicted it. If a binary star got too close to the central by call one of the stars would be absorbed in towards the blackhall. The other one would get a lot of energy be flung out of the center of the Galaxy and bicycling escape from galaxy completely. And that's what we're saying here. This really is the the first time that we've been definitively established that this high-velocity star doesn't affect have its origin at the center of the Galaxy. What do you know about this star? Well we know that it's Relatively young it's about two and a half times the mess of some. It's likely to be quite rich in chemical elements because the Santa Pod Aug- Aleksey is where the overall about this is about effective two times higher than it is in the local neighborhood so it's caught rich but With a massive about two and a half times orange the lofty that is traveling at its guide to escape from the Galaxy and hit off into it elected spice which is a very empty place. What does one cool is star in integrated space? I know if we have a planet outside our solar system. It's a rogue planet but what what is it aerobic style. I guess you'd call. It is a collective star. The the volume of spice outside of galaxies is very very empty. So you know you have a very small population of stars walk. These escaped from galaxies and and They'd be very hard to find. It's not the first high-speed contended that has been detected that appears to be living galaxy. Isn't no that's right nine for some Almost addicted I guess that there are these high-velocity stars that appear to be skyping galaxy in fraction of which appear to be coming from the center of the Galaxy. But this is the very first one where we've got precise enough to seminar of the top of the star to absolutely verify that it's coming from the center of the Galaxy hasn't been given head log number yet or a name. It has the rather prosaic name S. five because as five is the Stream survey project we're involved with And then it's it should be s one high-velocity star number one. I guess with the expectation that we might find more to me about the survey that you guys have been doing. This is really exciting. Isn't it looking at. The shredded remains a small galaxies opening the Milky Way. That's right It's actually a very good example of international collaboration. There's a team in the US that uses what's called the doc energy like camera on the former telescope in Chile. But let's you image lodge areas in the sky and they've infect done quite deep suv. I of the Southern Hemisphere Scott and in that imaging serve I I discovered of order a dozen of these streams where we believe these a AH small galaxies. That have been disrupted but you need to take spectroscopy of the stock is to get the philosophies in the abundances and the anglo-australian telescope with its two degree field spectograph spectograph lets you observe up to four hundred dollars at a time and that is a unique facility in terms of its field of view. A numbers fathers in the astronomical world so the US imaging imaging people have collaborated with star stone of his experts in fava spectroscopy to measure that. He's sort of these streams and You know serendipity can sometimes what can you fight or wait. Found this This particular stop by studying these still streams. This must be telling you a lot about the origins of the Milky Way Galaxy itself and how it's grown over Giga Giga us. Yes you're exactly right The the standard Theory of how the Milky Way is come into existence as had lots of galaxies Small galaxies full in get disrupted and then contribute. This does to the highlands of the disk of the galaxy in that process. We can try and map out. What the distribution of mass in our galaxy is by understanding the orbits of these streams in the galaxy get disrupted some of the stars get energy energy and move ahead than some of the stars lose energy in full behind? That's probably the other way around And so you. The whole thing gets strung out as a string of beat effectively and by studying the motions of streams we can actually see things like the influence of the lodge measuring like cloud as it comes by our galaxy. It's extra gravity. It disturbs the orbits of streams. and Are we seeing a lot of stuff from secretaries to office will run the other side that well it's been gobbled up. Now's well isn't it. That's that's right. I mean. The Sagittarius Stream was the first example of this Process with off. Galaxies falling in and being disrupted I guess it's Probably twenty. He's ago I guess it was in twenty five years since it was discovered and that is the archetypal example. The core of the galaxy is near the center of a Galaxy Galaxy. There's a stream of stars advice that goes across the hall. Scott now Sagittarius is was originally much more massive system than the small systems. That are just being disrupted the streams of West studying but it does just show that this process goes on Sagittarius. What in fact its own set of costs that guide to be added to the Hanover? The galaxy wants to sides of terrorists. System is completely disrupted with globular clusters. Can you tell the difference between a glove class. Sta and the center of a shredded galaxy. See that's very good question There are a few Gobert. COST IS GONNA cost is have constant abundance of elements it's like on and calcium Others but there are a few classes like a Centauri which is readily visible in the summer sky where there was a big range inch in the chemical elements like Nelson on from star to star. And it's certainly been suggested that Those cover costs as well. You see a heavy element abundance range by well obtained the former nucleus off galaxies. Pain disrupted our listeners are way normally globular cluster. oster is a tight ball of thousands if not millions of stars which originally formed together at the same time in the same molecular gas and dust cloud but when you see globular clusters crossed with stars of very different MILICIA's very different compositions. That's the telltale sign you're talking about. Exactly yes yes. In fact we have an example inside serious various the The there's a classical m fifty four which is a very luminous go cost which is right at the center secretaries and in fact does have a Ryan the elephants.

S. presidential election Mr Miller which presidential candidate was Russia's hiking and dumping operation designed to benefit Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump Mr Mr trump smaller is it possible that the sweeping and systematic effort by Russia actually had an effect on the outcome of the presidential election those issues are being or have been investigated by other entities hundred twenty six million Facebook impressions fake rallies attacks on Hillary Clinton's health would you rule out that it might have had some effect on the election Mecca speculate your report describes a third Avenue of attempted Russian interference that is the numerous links and contacts between the trump campaign in individuals tied to the Russian government is that correct I could you repeat the question your report describes what is called a third Avenue of it Russian interference and that's the links and contacts between the trump campaign an individual's tied to the Russian government let's bring up slide one which is about George Papadopoulos and it reads on may sixth twenty sixteen ten days after that meeting with Masood much discussed today Papadopoulos suggested to a representative of a foreign government that the trump campaign had received indications from the Russian government that I could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton and director that's exactly what happened two months later is it not well I can speak to the surface you have on the screen as being accurate from the report but not the second half your question with Willis second half just to refer to page six of the report is that on July twenty second through wikileaks thousands of these emails that were that were stolen by the Russian government appeared correct that's on page six of the report this is the wikileaks posting of those you know I I can't find it quickly but I please continue okay so just to be clear before the public or the FBI ever knew the Russians previewed for a trump campaign official George Papadopoulos that they had stolen emails that they could release anonymously to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton is that correct I'm like I speak to to to that director rather than report this contact with Joseph Masood and the notion that there was dirt that the campaign could use rather than report that to the FBI that I think most of my constituents would expect an individual to do Papadopoulos in fact lied about his Russian contacts to you is that not correct that's true we have an election coming up in twenty twenty director if a campaign receives an offer of dirt from a foreign individual or government generally speaking should that campaign report those contacts should be it I can be depending on the circumstances across I I will yield back the balance of my time miss Conway the smaller did anyone ask you to exclude anything from your report that you felt should have it in the report I I I I don't think so but it was a it's it's not a small report Michael come away no one has which is for the Texas northwest on the most likely should within their that you were not that I can recall the announcement Sanders reckless thank you thank the gentleman for yielding good afternoon director Mahler in your may twenty ninth press conference again in your opening remarks this morning you made it pretty clear you wanted the special counsel report to speak for itself John Nash said if your friend of complicated from ten that the authors in mind which is a will not comment on any other conclusions or hypotheticals about the president now he spent the last few hours of your life from Democrats trying to get you the answer all kinds of hypotheticals about the president and I expected it may continue for the next few hours of your life I think you've stayed pretty much true to what your intent and desire was but I guess regardless of that the special counsel's office is closed and it has no continuing jurisdiction or authority so what would be your authority or jurisdiction for adding new conclusions or determinations to the special counsel's written report as for the latter I don't know or expect changes in conclusion so we have included in our in our report so to that point you address one of the issues that that I needed to which was from your testimony this morning which some consider it as a change to the written report you talked about the exchange the you had with congressman Lou I wrote it down a little bit different I want to ask you about it so that the records perfectly clear I recorded that he asked you quote the reason you did not indict Donald Trump is because of the well see opinion stating you cannot indict a sitting president to which you responded that is correct that that response is inconsistent I think you'll agree with your written report I want to be clear that it is not your intent to change a written report it is your intent to clarify the record today as I started to today this afternoon and added either a footnote or endnote what I want to clarify is the fact that we did not make any determination a with regard to culpability in any way we did not start that process down down the road terrific thank you for clarifying the record the stated purpose of your appointment as special counsel was to insure a full and thorough investigation of the Russian government efforts to interfere in the two thousand sixteen presidential election as part of that full and thorough investigation what determination and special counsel office make about whether the steel dot CA was part of the Russian government efforts to interfere in the two thousand sixteen presidential election Gary comes to Mister Steele I defer to the department of justice well first full director I I very much agree with your determination that rough for Russia's efforts were sweeping and systematic I think it should concern every American that's why I want to know just how sweeping and systematic those efforts were I want to find out if Russia interfered with our election by providing false information through sources to Christopher steel about a trump conspiracy that you determine didn't exist well I has again I'm not gay discuss the issues regarding Mister Steele as the I in terms of a portrayal of the conspiracies we return to indictments and computer crimes arena of a one G. R. U. and another active measures in which we lay out in excruciating detail I am what occurred in those two and I rather large conspiracies I I agree with respect to that but why this is important is an application three renewal applications were submitted by the United States government to spy or surveil on trump campaign Carter associates are part of page and on all four occasions the United States government submitted the steel dossier as a central piece of evidence with respect to that now the basic premise of the dossier as you know was that there was a well developed conspiracy of cooperation between the trump campaign and the Russian government but the special counsel investigation didn't establish any conspiracy correct well I I what I can tell you is that the defense that you are characterizing here now is part of another matter that is being handled by the department of justice which you did not establish any conspiracy much less a well developed one and again I may pass on that question the special counsel did not charge card page with anything correct social council did not all right of my time is expired I yield back this tool director Mauler I'd like to turn your attention to the June ninth twenty sixteen trump tower meeting slide to which should be on the screen now is part of an email chain between don junior don Donald Trump junior and a publicist represent every single Democrat from Alabama email exchange ultimately led to the now infamous June ninth twenty sixteen meeting the email from the publicist to Donald Trump junior reads in part the crown prosecutor of Russia offer to provide the trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and is a part of Russia and its government support of Mr trump in this email Donald Trump junior is being told that the Russian government wants to pass along information which would hurt Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump is that correct now some juniors response to that email is flight three he said and I quote it is what you say I love it especially later in the summer then dollar junior invited senior campaign officials Paul man a fort in and Jared Kushner to the meeting today not this email exchanges that characterization which isn't it against the law for a presidential campaign to accept anything of value from a foreign government generally speaking yes but there is a hired killing the cases are circles or unique we say in a page a hundred eighty four and volume one the federal campaign finance law prop broadly prohibits foreign nationals from making contributions etcetera and then you say that foreign nationals may not make a contribution or donation of money or anything of value it said clearly in the report itself thank you now let's turn to what actually happened at the meeting when Donald Trump junior and the others got to the June ninth meeting they realize that the Russian delegation didn't have the promised cortical dirt in fact they got upset about that did they not Hey generally yes you say in volume a one page a hundred eighteen that truck junior asked what what what are we doing here what what what do they have on Clinton and during the meeting Kirschner actually text manifold saying it was quote a waste of time in quote is that correct I believe it's in the report along the lines you specify so to be clear top trunk campaign officials learned that Russia wanted to help Donald trump's campaign by giving him dirt on his opponent truck junior said loved it then he and senior officials held a meeting with the Russians to try to get that Russian help but they were disappointed because a dirt wasn't as good as they had hoped so to the next step did anyone to your knowledge in the trump campaign ever tell the FBI of this offer I don't believe so Donald Trump junior tell they'll be either they received an offer of help from and that's about all say on on this aspect of it would you be to star that if if they had reported it to the FBI or anyone in that campaign during the course of your two year investigation you would've been covered touch up I would hope yes yes Sir is it not the responsibility of political campaigns to inform the F.

I. if they receive information from a foreign government I would think that that something they wanted to do well not only did the campaign not tell the FBI they they sought to hide the existence of the June ninth at meeting for over a year is that not correct on the general characterization I would question it Hey if you're referring to later Hey edition of a reply that flowed from the media then no what I'm suggesting is eve said and volume two page five on several occasions the president directed aids not to publicly disclose the email setting up the jet the June nine meters attacker thanks I'm sorry given this illegal assistance by Russians you chose even given that you did not charge Donald Trump junior or any of the other senior officials with conspiracy is that right correct and while in there when you're talking about if you're talking about other individuals you're talking about the attendees yes that's right nine if that's right so Mr Miller even though he did not you didn't charge him with conspiracy don't you think the American people would be concerned that these three senior campaign officials eagerly sought a foreign adversaries helped to win elections and don't think that reporting that it's important that we don't set a precedent for future elections I can't accept that characterization well listen I think that it seems like a betrayal of American values to me Sir that someone with if not being criminal is definitely an ethical and wrong and I would think that we would.

Hey, brain, Steph, Lauryn balk here. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night keeps your loyal mailman for making their daily rounds in their powder. Blue shirt, grey shorts and occasionally awesome safari hat. But how exactly did your trustee mail carrier get signed the specific route, and how long are they stuck with it? The US postal service was established by the constitution. And the first postmaster general was named by George Washington in seventeen eighty nine. The new country was served by seventy five post offices, delivering to four million people. According to sue Brennan at the United States postal service your mail carriers. Current route is one of more than seventy four thousand world postal routes and nearly one hundred forty five thousand city routes across the nation, the longest single root in America is magnum Oklahoma where a well traveled world carrier drives a hundred and eighty three miles. That's two hundred ninety four kilometers every day to serve two hundred and forty eight customers the shortest route is an Athens, Georgia where a city. Carrier walks nine hundred fifty feet that's two hundred eighty nine meters to make two hundred and Eighty-one deliveries. We spoke with Brian Renfro. He's a second-generation letter carrier from Hattiesburg Mississippi currently serving as the executive vice president of the national association of letter carriers, a labor union, representing America's two hundred thousand city postal workers Renfro explained to us the process by which an individual postal route is designed and assigned for starters, Redford says rural carriers and city carriers have different systems for determining the size of a route a rural carriers route is much more consistent, and they are paid for the amount of time. It takes them to complete the root for city carriers. The guiding principle of design is for carrier to complete the route in his close to eight hours as possible. As you can imagine. And it our route looks a lot different depending on your location in a dense urban center full of highrise apartments. It might take a postal worker. Eight hours to service a couple of blocks out in the suburbs. Another postal worker might walk and Dr miles delivering to single family homes. The size and dimensions of each route are calculated using a combination of computer based mapping software and old fashioned on the ground experience. Renfer said the postal service has a computer program that maps the exact location of every delivery point not just this houses here, but we're the mailbox is in this program uses a number of algorithms to try to generate the most efficient way to travel the route based on the time value that's assigned to each street the computers timing of the root is just a starting point though. After that, it's the postal manager's job to account for reality. Which includes all the variables that can impact the time. It takes to complete a route. There are seasonal fluctuations and mail volume. There's inclement weather there's road construction and new home construction and the very human differences between one carrier and the next Renfrewshire said some letter carriers are tall some are short. Some are young some are older. Some are fasters are slower. There are all sorts of variables that play into it. There's no set time to deliver mail at a particular house the post. Oh carrier has to spend a few hours sorting the mail into trays before heading out on their route the trays correspond to the order of the root. If the house is head of you on the route happened to be heavier on male than usual on any given day. The letters may get to your box later then on another day. Even if the weather is good, and there's no road construction or other delays keeping the roots as close to eight hours as possible requires regular adjustments postal managers will conduct six day route inspections to accurately time each part of the letter carriers day from the daily morning sorting to the on the street delivery to hanging up their bag at night. If carriers day is stretching closer to eight and a half hours. The postal manager will slice off a portion of that route and divvied up among nearby carriers with lighter loads that explains why you might see a new face on your route every couple of years. Otherwise, these ending roots at any given post office is done by seniority when route is vacated the carrier quits or retires. Or a new one is created all the carriers office. Get to bid on the roots the carrier with the most seniority wins. If you've had the same letter carrier for a long time that probably means you're part of a desirable route or those cookies, you gave them on national postal worker day, July first are really paying off. In addition to the long-term route adjustments that are made every few months or years. The postal service also makes short-term route fixes when letter carriers show up to work every morning. They look at the day's mail volume and make an estimate of how long it will take complete their assigned route. Maybe it's a snow day or a day after a government holiday. So the delivery volume is doubled. If they know it's going to take more than eight hours. They can either volunteer for overtime overtime sign ups are every three months or the supervisor can assign a portion of the route to other carriers for the day Renfro notes that though this may sound simple in practice. It can get complicated. Fast individual post offices in big cities, like New York, Los Angeles. Boston might have two hundred three hundred letter carriers to manage each with hundreds of changing customers to deliver to.

"Couple of years ago. What you can see here. It's the left upper part of the macphail of the opera Joe come from here and all the data that we collected point towards more than human. And I think most people agree with us Joel from alternate. This. This is home assay pin. This is our ancestor note or ancestor because our ancestors were in this second wave seventy thousand years ago. Exactly, this is two hundred thousand years. Absolutely. Is there any appreciable difference between this human, and you and me no, it would be more or less the same the teeth slightly larger but only slightly larger, but when it comes to shape morphology in size general size. And so on. It looks. Okay. So he had a replica of a jaw of modern human. He had it in a little plastic bag in his pocket. Yeah. Brought it up to the site within. But this is a human. But it's not our ancestors. What you have to realize that there were there were ongoing migration out of Africa. Infiltrating you're coming all the time. They thought. Two hundred fifty thousand years ago. The does all small migration out of Africa didn't make it. They reached the, Dan as in the hair is the dead end. They reached Israel, and then they stopped. They didn't contribute and genetically. They didn't contribute anything to modern population. Because all all the prison population of the world actually belong to one single migration coming out to Africa rough me around seventy thousand years ago. Okay. So the old idea that everyone exploded outs of Africa kind of is true. But we had ancestors he left Africa much longer ago, of course of years ago. But they've reached that ends they came to lovely places. Like this. You know, this is nice enough. We'll stop here. I can see why they stop. It's a great view. It's a beautiful. The nieces is interested in the technology that humans hat, and how that might have allowed us to travel. Do we know anything about that? That's why we had been with us the elk eulogised. What's meaning looking for being is looking at the artifacts that they would have left around like stone, tools and things like that. Flint. Very good the quality content from the sound of very high quality. Logical song. Very blatant kind of elegant. There was a change from this big chunky handbags that you would have held in this very small shop thing that you would have perhaps. On the end spear road this shows much more sophistication they're much senior in many of them are points. I mean that sounds like just a completely different kind of two different and much more advantages. If you want to hunt, we see it in abrupt change, actually these chance to this. And when did that change happen we see from one to another? So like two hundred fifty thousand years ago with the appearance of new human remain in this case. So we tied together say probably this stages revolution. In this case, we have a new population coming with the new technology. Jeff won't you were in the med. I took myself to see professor Chris stringer at the natural history museum in London. Now, you can hear the interview in the podcast version. But basically, he is an expert on early humans, and I wanted to know about America pretty big part of the world and when that goal settled, and he reckons it was between twenty five and fifteen thousand years ago again. Using a land bridge if the have been earlier ice ages. Why didn't they jump on one of those? We might not have had the technology earlier and this is seriously cold. So you need you need the technology to create warm clothing. So you don't freeze to death is funny hearing, you talk about clothes as technology, but I suppose back then this was just a brand new idea hold that thought, Jeff. Because just a reminder that you're listening to crowd science on the BBC World Service, and we're investigating human movement around the world trying to find the answer to Venecia's question. What was the last place? Humans made a home, right? Jeff. Let's have a recap we discovered that. Our species goes way back up to around five hundred thousand years ago in Africa. But for the vast majority of that time, we stayed in Africa. Right. But then about two hundred thousand years ago. Our species was flirting with the idea of leaving just I'd trickling out to the edge is areas like the Levant, which is kind of modern day, Israel, Jordan, Syria. The ancestors of everyone outside Africa can be traced back to a single group of people who left the continent about seventy thousand years ago, and those people very quickly. It seems found Asia, Australia and Europe and then about fifteen thousand years ago when sea levels were much lower. They settled in the Americas. They were still hunter gather as they still would have been essentially nomadic moving. Around following big game. So when did humans decide to start staying put well as luck would have it money when I was in Israel, honestly, about thirty meters down the hill and around the corner of this mountain. There was another archeological sites which dated to around fifteen one five thousand years ago so much much much more recent and they represent the first evidence apparently of people he started to settle down and kind of give up the hunter gatherer lifestyle. I'm ruin I am an archaeologist at the university of Haifa. And I started the first settled societies of the near east, which is what you see here. The very first stone construction ever built. Okay. Both fifteen thousand years ago. People started lining up, these stones to form walls. So those were going like that at least nine meters in diameter enclosing immoral leveled area that assumes that there was some level of reliable food stock, otherwise, why would you bother going to the effort of building either that or they made the food stocks more reliable? I would you make the more reliable, you kind of abandoned the hunting of these louds tasty, you know, veer and other Angola. And you start dropping refined. What we find lots of Freeman's of mostly Flint and animal bones. Showing that they consume lots of meals animal meals, of course, meats and fats inside these various basis. Okay. And usually did not bother to clean them later. I love this. Because you know, you've got these the first sorts of human sets the supposed to be, you know, the pinnacle of human civilization, and yet they're just throwing that bodes on the floor in the finished dinner. So they haven't invented the been yet know exactly it does it does a wonderful excuse of living like a slob. So after the hundreds of thousands of years of hunter gatherer existence here in other places in the politic world this people living in these little pit houses. There are the first people to start capturing systematically, and including the diet in a regular fashion. Low thoroughfare, no mallrats in budgets, and snakes and Faulk says Sarah's does this birds. So we have this huge piles of all these small animals usually butchered cuts burns. So that's how we know people were eating them. They were adjusting themselves their economy society to intensively moten for the moment, basically eating everything that ever crawled around known the other would ever touch more to it. But they were doing it in this area. I mean, there's there's evidence that those this second wave of human movement. They would have still been what living in the caves natural environments like that. Whereas this represents this you say fifteen thousand years ago, this is like a real shift to making your own dwelling. So the world was quite empty where this people started settling down. If you want to understand these biggest evolution of them. All the farming to understand where it came from it came from this little hamlets once these people already more or less identified, okay? Sitting permanently in these small hamlets. They invented the head lots of innovations on how to stay together when the hotter. Sort of living because the easiest solution up until now in human. Evolution would have been to just go else. The ultimate in innovations that they made was agriculture. But then people really start moving out and win a bunch of farming groups with technology and Renault beasts of burden. And other domestic animals in the crops was they move out. Dan, stoppable if you're hunter-gatherer, and if you know, if they encounter farmers with maybe less people less sophisticated technology, then you know, the classes today. Clashes, and we can blame the farmers so ten thousand years ago, we started to see this exciting new trend called farming popping up all over the world. Jeff do we know why our ancestors decided to stop moving about and and start farming. I could speculate wildly. I think we should. Okay. I think we should speculate. Wildly boredom. Laziness Sese nece, possibly nice Seve us in caves like the ones that have been. I mean, it sounded good. Why would you move? Exactly. Troubles getting visas. And for the purposes of our program, what we need to know is that there was this shift to a farming lifestyle and that put added pressure on the population because it was quite successful. And it's more of us on top of that it meant that we could build up a food resource and take that food resource with us when we chose to move to a new space. So I've been searching for the last places we reached is a species, I think we're really closing in on an answer. Professor, Lisa Madison. Smith is an expert in Polynesian, people inhabitants of those many islands, scattered off the east coast of Australia. And she suggests that the reason people started moving through the islands of the Pacific toll may have something to do with farming. Like what happened with the Neolithic revolution in the near east where agriculture and domestication of wheat and barley cost population increase the same thing was happening in East Asia. With rice agriculture six thousand years ago, causing a population increase, the perhaps is what started the expansion of Austronesian speaking people through islands southeast Asia. And ultimately to the arrival of lupita people in the Pacific region. They arrived in the Bismarck archipelago about three and a half thousand years ago in the grand scheme of things. We're now in the very recent past the Pacific islands were settled by people within the last three thousand years, but New Zealand was the last of these you're speaking to us from roughly the other side of the world. So we're in London at the moment. Whereabouts. Are you I'm in Dunedin in on the South Island of New Zealand, and I have maybe a loaded question for you. What was the last place that humans Gotti? It depends on what you mean by got to New Zealand was the last major landmass that was settled. Or or permanently occupied by humans only about seven hundred and fifty years ago in terms of permanent documentation, when you think about what was going on elsewhere around the world that has very very recent was the some sort of advancement in technology. I'm wondering about what kind of tech they had allowed them to get to New Zealand all of the evidence that we have suggests that Polynesian sailing technology was was highly advanced people were able to sail into the wind people were able to navigate people moved eastwards through the voyaging corridor. And we think that the process of exploration was designed to be relatively safe process so sailing into the wind, but the return voyage is home to go back to safety as always with the wind. So it's a it's a systematic process and a very strategic process of. Scanning the Pacific along that voyaging corridor and identifying the islands when you find an island, then you can go home, and you can take your your colonists back. So you reckon that's how New Zealand was colonized. It was it was pioneers finding it first. And then coming back and going. Hey, guys, look what I found. Yeah. I think it was explorers or pioneers, finding it at returning sailing north and south is much more unpredictable process than sailing within that trade when corridor that that Pacific peoples were sailing for three thousand years, I think they would have been aware that that that there was a land mass to the south when I got here for the first time, it's a huge landmass from my perspective with giant flightless birds wandering around and see mammals completely naive to to human or to any predation, really. And you mentioned canoes and to me canoe is quite a small vessel. Yeah. I guess. Yeah. When people think canoe, they think small river type canoes, the canoes would have been large enough to transport as many as one hundred people we would suggest with all of the plants and animals that they were bringing to establish on these new islands. Yeah. They they were they were in a sense, I suppose catamaran's the wasn't people just sitting inside a single canoe. But that they were platforms with structures built on them that were sailing. How long was the journey. Do you reckon? We are beginning to get an idea these are voyages of of several weeks, but it it really depends on the season and the sailing conditions. This is the end of our story just seven hundred and fifty years ago when Pacific people develop massive, double hulled, sailing canoes and made home in the southerly landmass of New Zealand's taking everything they needed with them. And they did so incredibly recently compared to the other dates that we've heard in this program feels like yesterday. It's so recent in fact, that there are still oral traditions talking about those catamarans in Mary culture. Now cramped science has a podcast is I'm sure everyone listening knows and on it I speak to marry women who lives in London. And she explains the importance of these can canoes in this song. Oh, yeah. This is Kiwi. Marshall. Terra firma too. Doc, ID new Tacoma Khuda, all the. Okay. Well, this has been brilliant..

People people have peanut allergies. When I was a kid. Yes. They did. They just people thought like you. And that's why. But now you can't even give us on an airplane. That was scary. Who said they didn't have peanut allergies. When I was a kid for the record. I don't know even for snack in school. You can't bring anything.

Jay Z in meek mill they're going to team up with the owner of the seventy Sixers for some prison reform. If you remember he was pretty instrumental in helping meek mill get out after he was sentenced to jail after violating decades old probation probation violation. So they say that these rules are unfair. They wanna team up together to work on it. There's a new question on the twenty twenty census. Have you heard about this causing some controversy? So apparently back in the fifties. They had a question are you a US citizen? They take it. They took it off the census. And now they want to add it back, which the people who are criticizing at are saying you're going to cause inaccurate reporting because people are going to get very nervous about how they answer this question. Skewing the results. So we'll see if that ends up sticking, obviously, we talked about this a little bit before the military. It's been thirty months since transgendered troops were allowed to serve. But the supreme court just voted five four to reinstate that. Dan. It is not a done deal yet is still being held up in the courts, but it could affect to fifteen thousand troops.

They call it a drone scare because we're not one hundred percent sure that that's what it was. But different air traffic controller said that they saw objects as close to nine meters away from planes. So they grounded all the traffic out of there yesterday. That's not good. We're trying to keep the ducks away. Yes. And they say that if they're spotted a drone owner to get fined one hundred thirty dollars right there on the site.

There was a little bit of a scare people thought that they cited drones in the air as close to nine meters away from a plane. That's insane. Now, we haven't had confirmation that they were forced shore drones, but two different air traffic controller said that they did see these things so a lot of flights grounded.

Do Footballs Fly Farther in Denver?
"Imagine a fine afternoon in Denver the mile high city behind quarterback Peyton Manning's explosive offensive. The Denver Broncos have amassed attended to record today. They're hosting the Tennessee titans squad. That's lost three of its past four games. The titans. Have put up a good fight over the first half hour of game. Play three seconds before. Halftime. The score is Tennessee Twenty-one Denver seventeen. And her Broncos kicker. Matt Prater trotting out to the Denver forty six yard line. He readies himself for the play of his life. A mighty kick. Sends the ball soaring end over end across the field as a nervous crowd holds its breath. And then the place erupts with ease the ball sails through the yellow crossbar in Tennessee's endzone. It's a longest completed field goal in NFL history. A perfectly made sixty four yard drill. A for metric friends. That's about fifty eight meters perhaps emboldened by prayers heroics. The Broncos go on to crush the titans of the second half, thus clinching a playoff berth. The game. I just described took place on December eighth twenty thirteen today. Prater sixty four yards still holds the all-time distance record. Although his accomplishment has never been bested. Jaw-dropping football kicks are nothing. New in the rocky mountains. Three of the five longest field goals that the NFL has ever seen were made in Denver's mile high stadium. Broncos great Jason Elam nailed a sixty three yarder there in one thousand nine hundred eight a feat that was matched by Sebastian Janikowski when his Oakland Raiders came to town thirteen years later, but to hear some sports fans tell it those three kicks should have Asterix attached the official elevation of Colorado's capital is exactly one mile. That's one thousand six hundred nine meters above sea level. No other NFL cities. It's anywhere close to that. Altitude of the runner up is Glendale Arizona, which is just one thousand feet or three hundred meters. Above sea level Denver's elevation does affect the sporting events up there when football's kicked Broncos home game. It's apt to cover more distance than it would in lower elev-. Nations. And this doesn't just affect three point field goals. Kickoffs tend to go farther as well. There's a book called football physics. The science of the game by one university of Nebraska, professor Timothy gay for it. He ran the numbers on eight different teams from cities that sit more or less at sea level like the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots that played at least one road game in Denver during the two thousand one or two thousand two seasons. He found that in those two years the visiting kickers from low elevation towns. Enjoyed some great numbers when they went to Denver up in Colorado. There kickoffs traveled seventy point one yards. That's sixty four meters on average back in their respective home fields. The average kickoff distance dropped by seven point three yards. That's six point six meters to understand those numbers will need to talk about air density pretend as I'm sure you want to that you have a jet pack, if you were to take off at sea level and travel through earth's atmosphere in a straight line up the density of the air around you would get lower as your altitude. Creased? This is due to a universal law as the distance between two objects grows the gravitational pull they exert on each other lessons and air molecules are not exempt the pole of earth's gravity is more strongly felt by molecules that are closer to the planet's center at or below sea level, gravitational attraction pacts the molecules tightly together and the weight of the molecules sitting higher up in the atmosphere really bears down on the ones occupying low elevations in consequence the air, it self grows, denser, the closer you get to the surface way up in the mile high city, the Air's only about eighty two percent as dense as it is at sea level a ball kicked skyward in Denver will therefore encounter fewer air molecules than it would in Miami. That's important to note because air molecules create drag drag is a force that pushes against solid bodies as they travel through fluids or gases, a punted or kicked football will run headlong into a steady barrage of air molecules their combined drag will slow it down sometimes dramatic. Early. But remember in ludens, the air molecules are fewer and farther between therefore football's can and often do encounter less drag in Denver Denver's altitude impacts baseball as well. A physicist and Red Sox fan. Alan Nathan reports that fly balls at chorus field. Go proximity five percent farther than they do at Fenway park in Boston yet kicking on the Broncos home turf won't guarantee success for kickers or punters altitude reduces air density, and by extension drag but cold weather increases it and boy can Colorado get chilly. A twenty eleven survey of NFL statistical records found that in outdoor games. Played at temperatures of thirty nine degrees Fahrenheit, that's four degrees celsius or lower field goal. Accuracy drops by one point seven percent while the average partly is about one yard shorter than normal. These findings hold true throughout the league. So it's to Matt Prater credit that his record-breaking field goals split the uprights from sixty four yards out. Even though Denver. It's temperature had fallen. Just fourteen degrees Fahrenheit that's negative ten celsius at the time. Whatever the weather kicking specialists need to be on guard against complacency Denver's reputation as the mecca of ultra-long field goals is well established across the league. According to players that mile high mystique can trick visiting kickers into overestimating their abilities. We could say that when in doubt always air on the side of
