"Came from on object shot down Friday afternoon, off the northern coast of Alaska, CBS is Willie James inman. The Pentagon described it as much smaller than the Chinese surveillance balloon that flew over the U.S. last week. The object was about the size of a small car, so not similar in size or shape. Former defense secretary Mark Esper tells CBS News, it would raise significant concerns if the object is from China. It begs a question, what is going on in Beijing? Are they purposefully doing this? Committing these brazen acts to test us provoke us, The White House says it is sharing information learned about the surveillance balloon with dozens of nations. Willie James inman, CBS News, Washington. While he was out of town, FBI investigators went to the Indiana home of X rice president Mike Pence, correspondent Steven portnoy reports.

"Developments in a pair of breaking stories. First, the U.S. Military shot down a second balloon floating in U.S. airspace. This time it happened over waters near Alaska. WTO P national security correspondent JJ green joins us live with details JJ what do you know? It happened at 9 45 a.m., Alaska standard time. At the direction of the president of the United States, fighter aircraft assigned to U.S. northern command successfully took down a high altitude airborne object off the northern coast of Alaska. Pentagon press secretary, Brigadier general pat reiter says that F-22 raptor from joint base elmendorf was dispatched to shoot it down because it was a threat. The object was flying at an altitude of 40,000 feet and posed a reasonable threat to the safety of civilian flight. Ryder said, this object was about the size of a small car, much smaller than the one shot down last weekend, but the origin of this one was unknown. U.S. northern command is beginning recovery operations now. And in addition to not knowing what the origin was, they also don't know what it was capable of. Reporting live, JJ green, WTO news. JJ, anything else that's known about this object and what it was carrying? One thing that we do know, Sean is that this object did not, according to what we've learned from The White House and from The Pentagon did not have the ability to maneuver. And I think that was a key factor in making this decision to shoot it down. Also, this particular balloon was flying at about 40,000 feet, which is sort of on the edge of where passenger jets fly, the other balloon flew along at about 65,000 feet plus. So that was a whole different category in terms of being a threat or not a threat to civilian aircraft. But the this particular one was flying at an altitude that was deemed a threat to civilian aircraft because sometimes civilian aircraft can fly up to 45,000 feet. JJ, thanks so much. You're welcome. WTO P national security correspondent JJ green. Also breaking this afternoon. Another classified document has been found by the FBI at former vice president Mike Pence's Indiana home. Agents recovered one classified document and 6 additional pages without any markings. CBS News White House correspondent Stephen portnoy joined us just moments ago. He says all of this started after papers marked classified, were found at President Biden's home in Delaware. Mike Pence ordered a review of his own papers to see if there might be anything of interest there. The attorneys found some papers with classified markings, gave them to the FBI, and today the consensual search with FBI agents from the Indianapolis field office went in and found one more document.

"Interdicted on international waters. It used to be that a lot of these goods could just travel and open waters and goods were delivered in this way. Of course they are that way all around the world. But the sanctions cut them off. And so instead, Iran and Russia have created a whole new overland trade route, which is not subject to inspection or enforcement by U.S. sanctions. Can you describe that route? They've had this idea for a long time, Russia and Iran. It's something that Iran has been really pushing for. It's always looking to circumvent sanctions and bypass sanctions and specifically U.S. and EU penalties by using different pathways and routes and various different types of disguises to try and foil its trade with countries, particularly countries like China and other countries around the world. And so what they've wanted to do for a long time in Tehran is to link their ports in the Caspian Sea which historically have always been very accessible to Russian markets, obviously. To the Persian Gulf, because the Persian Gulf, as we know, is kind of like it's the choke point for global energy supplies. It's a hugely significant for oil trade, and it's massive, huge importance for Iran's economy, making sure that the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz specifically is open and that Iran has ready access to that and that it can kind of bypass any perceived threats from the U.S. for instance because the U.S. Military obviously has quite a strong presence also in the area and Iran has difficult and tense relationships with its neighbors and has had for the past ten years now. The Russian leader wants to bypass the blockade with the help of new partner countries. Russia's answer is the new north south route from St. Petersburg, Moscow, Azerbaijan, Iran, and to Mumbai. Russia hopes this new route could replace some of its lost trade with the west. The idea is that using a land corridor so going from the northern coast of Iran on the Caspian Sea, karting through the country using railway lines to link effectively these ports to the southern Persian Gulf Coast where they have these major trade terminals like bandar Abbas, which they're using now at the moment and they've used bandaras to pilot this corridor so far and send some goods to Russia, and more recently what they want to try and do is also use the port of chabahar. Chabahar is much closer to Iran's border with Pakistan and so the importance and significance of that. Is that it comes east of the Strait of Hormuz. So if goods come from bandara was they have to pass through the Strait of Hormuz, using a port like chabahar as an alternative to bander Abbas, again bypasses that political risk, and it can get goods straight into the Indian Ocean and through to markets into Asia, like India, for instance, China. What's very unique about chabahar is it's exempt for U.S. sanctions. It's speculated that it was originally granted a because the U.S. wants to keep India on sides and was seen as a potentially strategic link to supply U.S. troops in the Afghanistan. Back when they were still there. And whether the sanctions exemption remains or not, is one of those open questions. And this is also quite an expensive venture. What has it cost to expand this trade route so far? The headline number is about $25 billion more or less evenly split in either side. The Russians are spending billions, have committed billions to dredge and expand riverways and Len river ways. That's so bigger and bigger ships are able to pass some of these narrow waterways. Exactly the capacity constraint is the weather, parts of it frees up right now, parts of it are too shallow. So there needs to be significant investment to increase the capacity to make it an internationally competitive with longer roost, the bigger ships comply carrying bigger loads. Do the U.S. and the EU have any way of limiting or enforcing sanctions in this route? With the rail line with the railroad, no, I don't see how they could possibly do that. The Persian Gulf where we've seen how quickly crises can erupt in that waterway, we had it under Trump. We had a effectively a second tanker war. If they choose to then swoop into the Persian Gulf, like a U.S. vessel and wants to circumvent a ship which it suspects, for instance, of carrying maybe some kind of goods from Russia that it's destined to go to China or India that's come by Iran that is sanctioned, then that potentially can happen if they do it in international waters inside the Persian Gulf, but doing that obviously really elevates the kind of risk scenario in the Persian Gulf. I'll continue my conversation with golnar and Jonathan in just a bit. But to understand why Iran and Russia are going to such great lengths to avoid these western sanctions, is worth taking a moment

"And vice versa. Russia can ship goods down the Volga river up the dawn river to rivers and southern Russia that lead into the Caspian Sea, which is shared with Iran. And so it's not just the traditional Russian deliveries of grain and energy flowing down this southern corridor, suddenly now it's also Iranian products that are flowing north because Iran also wants to escape sanctions and so they're signing deals to ship turbines and plastics and of most concern for western policymakers, drones and other weapons that can go over the Caspian Sea into Russia directly without the possibility of being interdicted on international waters. It used to be that a lot of these goods could just travel on open waters and goods were delivered in this way. Of course they are that way all around the world. But the sanctions cut them off.

"And so there's so much to do. You can do a good weekend in San Juan and have a fantastic time. One of my favorite places to go and sometimes I just get off the plane and I go straight there and it's an ocean park. There's a bakery called casalta. It's one of my favorites, and it's this Spanish style bakery, but you can literally, you literally have the most delicious sandwiches, but they also serve like rice and beans, like you want something a bit heavier for lunch or an early dinner. I think it closes around like 9 p.m., but they also have wines and cocktails there. So if you fancy a cocktail at noon, you can do that too. They have great coffee, great pastries. And it's just like one of those like super casual places and everybody like converges there are tourists, people who live in it's been expensive neighborhoods, so people that live in the neighborhood, people that work in the neighborhood. So it's just like a mix of everybody and it's pretty affordable to have a meal there. Excellent. Are we ready to head to the beach? Yes, let's go to the beach. Okay, so you took us right from San Juan and immediately took us told us you were gonna head to a beach. If we're in San Juan and we wanna go to a beach, you said we're gonna skip the ones in San Juan, where are we going? So if you don't wanna go too far from San Juan, I recommend geeta, which is in one of the 8 and it's like around 40, 45 minutes, depending on traffic, to get there. During the week, it's a bit more relaxed during the weekend. It could be a bit busy, but it's really almost like a horseshoe shaped beach. So it's beautiful. If you look it up, you'll see some great drone shots. And it's encircled by rock so around it is like this really rough Atlantic water, but then it's calm. It's nice to swim. And you can actually even snorkel there and see some pretty cool fish and so we just love the vibe. It's very relaxed.

It's not a, I think the way I looked at it was, I think the time from the West Coast, it was actually cheaper and ultimately faster ish to fly into Dublin, but yeah, if you can get to Belfast, you're just so much closer to your destination.

But I will say that whether it's from Belfast to portrush or all the way from Dublin to port rush, once you get into that Northern Irish countryside, like I really enjoyed my train ride from Belfast up to portrush.

This is a place unaffected by time and American culture in the same way that we're used to in the states. The pace of life is slower. It's very rural. It feels older. And it feels good. I mean, I just felt my blood pressure dropping just on that train ride up there.

some of that is priced into the market and the uncertainty and the fear of concern that that will happen But it really that scenario can lend itself to a lot of different outcomes whether it's localized whether it's something that is quick does it spill over with cyberattacks to European countries or the United States of America So I mean that's why nobody wants to go anywhere near it and that's why I think everyone's praying that there's a diplomatic solution to it because the reality is nothing good will come from it Now I will say that when I say nothing good will come from it I mean I think there will be an initial knee jerk sell off in the market which always happens on any major event whether it was Brexit or U.S. debt getting downgraded back by the standard and poor's years ago So there's going to be this immediate knee jerk flush of the market But then again time has shown us that as things sort of settle down and we have to figure out exactly what the scenario is and how it's going to affect things The market does tend to recover Now how long that takes is anybody's guess But here's hoping that we don't need to try to figure that one out and diplomacy wins over armed conflict If we set aside geopolitics for a moment is what we're experiencing with the economy almost the opposite of Goldilocks Yeah well I mean the right if you took the Ukraine Russia situation off the table This is all about two things Interest rates and earnings Period end of story right Rates are going up albeit from a very low rate Well in valuations Absolutely valuations are very high in certain areas and have come down and you've got some areas that are actually pretty cheap or cheaper than they certainly had been But those two things which historically are the key drivers of the market interest rates and earnings would be all we're talking about And I think everybody realizes and I think even the fed has said they're late They missed this and they're trying to do their best to catch back up and try to put this Genie back in the bottle but that is going to be a very daunting task at this point but just when you have the Chicago fed president saying that their present monetary policy setting is wrong footed against the current sharp increase in inflation quote unquote That's all you need to know I mean rates are going up It's just a matter of how long and in what type of increments Well I mean policy is probably at the moment still accommodative That's certainly true The point is when you try to get up to neutral You've got to figure out what neutral is And the environment becomes that much more muddy wouldn't you agree I most certainly would It's a very very well stated I mean we're not going from 5 to 7 here with rates right We're going from zero to maybe one in three quarters And again all of this is said with what we understand right now anything can happen to change This including again what we were just talking about regarding Ukraine If there is an invasion of Ukraine and there's a flight to quality and the treasuries and the economy falters then maybe rates are off the table for a little while But at the end of the day inflation is at 7 and a half percent and that's a challenge with 4% unemployment So there's something needs to be done And I think they will but listen it is extremely muddy But we've been here and seen this before I mean we've had fed hikes 83 87 88 94 99 O four 15 We've seen it before And yes the market hates the uncertainty but the market generally during that tightening is actually been positive most of the time It's the uncertainty in the hand wringing that really causes the volatility in the short end Chuck Bloomberg did a story over the weekend basically saying that the big central banks.

That's my only connection. And why should someone go to Estonia? That is a really good question. I tend to look for places that are off the beaten path. And I am also interested in going to countries that were former communist countries because I find it fascinating to see how the culture either has been maintained or not and to witness the changes and even though Estonia has been independent from the Soviets for 30 years. You can still see those transformations throughout the country. Excellent, well, what kind of itinerary are you going to recommend for us? I would recommend starting in the city of tartu and I apologize if I am butchering the language.

"Night Welcome to kids Miss Mystery Cyber your host kit chrome today. I'm going to talk about how some Mistakes made it into text books and I'm going to start with the woolly mammoth arose about five point one million years ago in Africa according to the curator of the American Museum of Natural History in New York from Africa the mammoth migrated through Eurasia North America their evolution continued over millions of years eventually producing what we know now as the wooly mammoth beginning roughly two, hundred, fifty, thousand years ago. mammoths were extinct about ten thousand years ago. OOPS more like three, thousand, five, hundred years ago scientists now believe an isolated population of mammoth persisted on Wrangel Island off the northeastern coast of Siberia. And deep in Canada's Northwest Territories, World Heritage site in hunt, valley until about three thousand, seven, hundred years ago. Unfortunately, the ten thousand year mark of extinction is in most textbooks. But let's take a closer look at that date the prominent theory that made it into most textbooks. Encyclopedia's remember those was ten thousand years ago because it was believed for decades at the mammoth migrated from the African continent through. Eurasian North America, driven by the last ice age, they were following the food supply. If that's the case, then it makes sense that some moms ended up into Hani because it was never touched by. The last ice age and yes bone. So the mammoth have been found in that region but this isn't the first theory published in Texbook. As fact that there's some founded expend believed and yes, made it into text books that the continent of Antarctica has been covered by ice for millions of years again hoops the Perry reese map drawn in fifteen thirteen shows the northern coast of Arctic as ice-free. The most puzzling aspect of the map isn't how it managed to be. So accurate three hundred years before Antarctica was discovered but that the map shows the real Coche line under the ice geological evidence. has confirmed that the latest date and Artika could have been charted in an ice free ages. Four thousand BC officials sciences been saying all along the ice cap, which covers yet arctic is millions of years old the Perry reese at Arctic map shows, but the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice covered it. That could make us think it has been mapped a million years ago but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time further and more accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice free condition and already got ended about six thousand years ago. The question is who map Queen Maud land at Arctic six thousand years ago which unknown civilization, how the technology or the need to do that I wanNA touch on just one more scientific nestled in the ancient city of Komo. Polka Bolivia are stone blocks that were used to make up a series of Pyramids Wayne from two hundred to four hundred tons each block nothing unusual there the city dates back to five, thirty, six AD. Yet. The blocks are riddled with carved indentations and in the surrounding grasses were found. Staple shaped clamps that fit in place were used to hold the blocks together. How could the indigenous people? No knowledge of urgency have created these clamps and where did the metal they use come from? This isn't the only case of metal clamps being used to hold giants don't together in Cambodia's anchor watt giant sandstone blocks way nearly two tonnes were brought to the site of the temple from nearby mountain via series of waterways. Close inspection of stones that are scattered around the site have revealed carved indentation receptacles for metal clamps perhaps. How about an eerie coincidence just outside the magnificent ruins of anger what stands an ancient pyramid temple known as backseat clump core now from Cambodia. Travel over eight thousand miles to Guatemala in the ancient Mayan city of Tacoma all among the long forgotten structures at the call is the Temple of the Great Jaguar although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid in Guatemala the similarities between the specific design features are uncanny both. These pyramids both these ancient structures have an unusually steep slope angle that didn't exist in many other pyramids or temples however, and perhaps most importantly they both feature a stepped formation. There's a massive stairwell going up the middle of both temples and there's a domed area located on the top of both once there you can see there's a small door that goes inside the pyramid on both and there's another internal structure that looks the same. Basically what you have here is an ancient civilization. Cambodia. Another one in Mesoamerica despite the fact that they are separated by more than nine thousand miles, they feature incredible similarities that no one not even science has been able to explain

And the reason why is climate change as NPR's Mike Lean do cliff reports? Scientists are worried about something that could be lurking inside. These settlements Zombie pathogens up on top of an ocean. Bluff team of archaeologists is trying to pull off an emergency excavation. Here we have ribs and vertebrae other long bones. That's Dominique Tulu. Student helping to dig out hunting cabin. He's found a stash of animal bones at the other end of the house. Glenis on shows me where someone was storing fresh. Kills so this. Is this skin right here? At my feet are mummified seal. These seals are incredibly well preserved. You can see their skin their whiskers and this odsal paw. Oh Paul everywhere they dig. There's another surprise owing us. This is ridiculous. That's an Jensen the archaeologist leading the team they're out of coastal site near Ukiah that the town wants known as Barrow. They're rushing to save a piece of history before it falls into the ocean the cliff where the cabin is buried is going breaking apart because of climate change bird bird after bird after bird stack up in their skin. There there is the whole boy. Things are getting super stinky. The birds are thawing in rotting. That's right when students hands covered in black king bird flesh. Oh yeah hands. Oh my gosh. Oh now Johnson starts worrying about something. We can't see even flu virus. Oh norovirus yes. The team realizes there could be bird-flu hidden in these carcasses. You he all across the. Arctic climate change is causing the ground to warm soften like butter and there are a lot of things buried this ground. Not just animals but also their diseases tinkering take a rank colleen. You're GONNA drive yourself seriously. You need a break cooling. The major as a student she puts on gloves. Yeah you should probably do that hand. Because I mean a lot. Dunkin you at this point. In the excavation something even crappier happens. A human molar appears really human tooth. Now the site rat isn't a burial ground. There shouldn't be bodies right here but the two does make them pause because it reminds them that there aren't just animal diseases buried in the Arctic but also possibly human diseases. There are tens of thousands of bodies hidden in the Arctic permafrost. Jensen knows this better than anyone. I've gone a lot of burials. Yeah I've probably Doug as many variables was anybody. Some of the people buried up here. They died of smallpox others from the nineteen eighteen flu. Have you ever seen human remains like as well preserved as this seal? Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah well the little the little frozen girl from rookie. Avic ARE NYACK. Yes she was. She was actually much better preserved than the seal. The little girl was just six years old. She was carefully wrapped in duct skin. Parka WITH A FUR-TRIMMED. She had this little sled with her. She died about eight hundred years ago. Water in around her burial I think and she was socialist. Basically encased in ice. We're able to take her out in a block of ice. Her body was so well preserved that Jensen shipped her to anchorage so doctors could do a full autopsy. One of those doctors was Michael's Zimmerman a paleobiologist at the University of Pennsylvania. I've done the number studies on frozen bodies in Alaska and when you open them up the organs role there and they're easily identified. It's not at all like Egyptian mummies where everything is shrunken and dried up. So it's easy to see what a person died up for the little frozen girl. It was starvation. But Zimmerman has seen infections embodies excavated from permafrost in one case a mummy from the Aleutian Islands. Looked like it had died of pneumonia and when he looked for the bacteria inside the body there they were frozen in time. We can see them microscopically in the in the lungs. There's this fear out there that once human bodies are exposed by melting permafrost. The pathogens in them could come back to life like Zombie pathogens. It's not unheard of anthrax. Can do it. It happened just a few years ago. In Russia a massive reindeer burial ground thought in the anthrax that killed. The reindeer woke up and started an outbreak. Were these new moon. You bacteria still alive. Zimmerman tested it. He took a smidge tissue from the lungs warmed it up fed it and tried to revive it. Nothing grew not one single cell though. I was happy because I didn't have to worry about catching anything. Zimmerman says he wasn't surprised. Bacteria were dead. Anthrax is a special case. In general bacteria that make people can't survive deep-freeze we're dealing with the organisms. That are hundreds of years old at least of the stuff. I work out of their frozen for hundreds of years and I really don't think they're ready to come back to life. I asked him if the same is true for viruses. I think it's extremely unlikely we've never been able to Culture any living organisms out of these bodies in nineteen fifty one a pathologist from San Francisco. Johan Halton decided to test this out. He went up to a tiny town near nome Alaska in dug up the bodies of five people who had died of the nineteen eighteen flu a virus that killed at least fifty million people Holton told. Npr Two thousand four that he cut out tiny pieces of the people's lungs and try to grow the virus in the lab. I hope that I would be able to isolate living virus. And they couldn't they ours is dead. And in retrospect of course maybe that was a good thing a good thing. But here's the crazy part. Holton tried to capture the virus twice. He went back to Alaska when he was seventy two. In Russian. Scientists like Holton have intentionally tried to revive smallpox from bodies in their permafrost. They recovered pieces of the virus but couldn't get that to grow either so maybe when it comes to Zombie Diseases. It's not melting permafrost.

"All Welcome to kiss Miss Misery. Sime your host kit chrome hoping you're healthy and staying sheltered in place today. I'm going to talk about scientific hiccups and I'll begin with the woolly mammoths arose about five point. One million years ago in Africa according to the curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from Africa the mammoth migrated throughout Europe Asia North America. Their evolution continued over millions of years eventually producing the woolly. Mammoth we know today. They began roughly two hundred fifty thousand years ago. Mammoths went extinct about ten thousand years ago. Hoops that's the first scientific hiccup more like three thousand five hundred years ago. Scientists now believe in isolated population of mammals persisted on Wrangel Island off northeastern eastern Costa Siberia and deep in Canada's Northwest Territory and World Heritage Site than Hani Valley. They were there until about three thousand seven hundred years ago. The ten thousand year more of extinction is in most textbooks though. But let's take a closer look at that date. The prominent theory that made it into most textbooks and the cyclopes. Pedia is ten thousand years ago because it was believed for decades at the mammoth migrated from the African continent through Eurasian orth America driven by the last ice age. What scientists called police to seen ice age following the food supply? If that's the case that it makes sense that some ended up in the valley because it was never touched by the last ice age and yes sponsor the mammoth have actually been found in that region. But this isn't the first theory published in a textbook as fact that is founded. It's been believed yes. Baited into text books that the continent of at Artika has been covered by ice for millions of years again. Oops scientific hiccup. The Perry reese map drawn in. Fifteen thirteen shows a northern coast of Antarctica. Ice-free the most puzzling aspect of the map isn't how it managed to be so accurate three hundred years before and articles discovered but that the map shows the real coastline under the ice geological. Evidence has confirmed. How could that have happened or been charted in an ice free age four thousand years ago which is what science states? That was the last time that Arctic was ice free officials. Science has been saying all along that the ice cap which covers the Antarctic is millions of years old. The Perry reese at Arctic amount shows it the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice covered it that could make us think it has been mapped a million years ago but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time. Furthermore accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice-free condition in that Arctic area the northern tip ended about six thousand years ago the question is who mapped Queen Maud Land of Antarctica. Six thousand years ago which unknown civilization had the technology or the need to do that. I want to state at this point. That the Perry map has been validated as being real and brought back to that data. Fifteen thirteen it is not a about that which made twenty years. I pushed office something true. I want to touch on just one. More scientific kick up nestled in the ancient city of Papun Kabul. Libya are stone blocks that were used to make up a series of pyramids each block. Wade from two hundred to four hundred tonnes. Nothing unusual there. The city dates back to five three six ad yet. The blocks are riddled with carved indentations and in the surrounding grasses were found giant staple liked clamps. That it in place and we're used to hold the blocks together. Wait a minute. How could the indigenous people with no knowledge of metallurgy have created these clamps and worded the metal used for them? Come from? But this isn't the only case of clamps be used to hold giants Jones together and Cambodia's Angor Watt giant sandstone blocks way nearly two tonnes were brought to the side of the temple from a nearby mountain bias. Here's waterways close inspection. The stones that are scattered around the side has revealed carved indentations receptacles for metal clamps. Says kind of interesting. How about an eerie coincidence? Just outside the magnificent ruins of anger. What Stanton Asian Pyramid temple known as boxy CAM gone now from? Cambodia travel eight thousand miles to Guatemala and the ancient Mayan city of Tacoma all among the long forgotten structures at to call is the temple of the Jaguar although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid Guatemala. The similarities between the specific design features are uncanny both these ancient structures have an unusually steep slope angle that don't exist in other pyramids or temples however most importantly they both feature a stepped formation. There's a massive stairwell going up to the middle of both temples and there's a domed area located on top once there you could see. There's a small door goes inside the pyramid and there's another internal structure that looks the same basically. What you have here is an ancient civilization in Cambodia and another in Mesoamerica despite the fact that they are separated by more than nine thousand miles away featuring credible similarities that no one has been able to explain. Thus my idea of being a scientific hiccup because when you read in the textbooks is different than what facts

What are Kenya and Somalia really fighting about?
"For obvious reasons the idea of an old fashioned cross-border dust up between two neighboring nations seems right now almost quaint and perhaps the kind of thing likely to prompt replies in the circumstances along the lines of at this point who cares or not now leads where a bit busy nevertheless despite the best efforts of covert nineteen the world will keep turning and its constituent countries will continue to but against each other from time to time in East Africa in recent days. Somalia and Kenya have gone very close to going to war with each other and may get close. Astill the battlefield is jubilant. One of Somalia's five semi autonomous states. It lies just across Somalia's border with Kenya. Kenya regards drew ballooned as a vital buffet. Between it and Al Shabaab the fanatical Islamist militia which wreaks most of its havoc in Somalia but has also been responsible for large scale outrages in Kenya including the two thousand and thirteen attack on the West Gate Shopping Mall in Nairobi and the two thousand and fifteen attack on a university campus in Garissa accordingly Kenya has cultivated friendly relations with Jubal lands regional government and with jubilant president. Ahmed Mohamed Islam known colloquially as adobe Kenya has trained Madonna obeys militia and has troops of its own stationed injury bowland as part of the multinational African Union mission in Somalia and is also believed to have many more still camped under Kenya's own flag. This is a continuation of sorts of the invasion of Somalia Kenya undertook in two thousand and eleven in order to chase al-shabaab further north. Can US troops injury ballooned are not seeing as style occupiers? However indeed President Mugabe's regional government seems to get on better with Nairobi than it does with Mogadishu. The most recent unpleasantness appears to have begun with fighting between drew balloons own forces and Somali government troops the jubilation soldiers retreated over the border into Kenya and the Somali troops followed them. At which point. Can you took an interest? The fighting appears to have centred on the town of Mandera a town wedged between the Kenya. Somali border and the Delaware River which delineates Kenya's border with Ethiopia attorney casualties on both sides left people. Each data to save bullets. Were one succumb today. A diplomatic exchanges between Kenya and Somalia. Since have been terse verging on abrupt. Kenya has jumped about an unwarranted attack on its sovereign territory by foreign soldiers and so forth. Somalia has retorted to the effect that this is a bit rich coming from a country with thousands of its soldiers parked more or less permanently on the other side of its border. Kenya's desire to put physical distance between itself. And the PESTILENTIAL MARAUDERS OF AL. Shabaab is reasonable enough but it may not be the only or even the main reason why relations between Arab and Mogadishu have deteriorated as far as they have excitingly for fans of obscure maritime territorial disputes and. Come on who isn't the two countries are also at odds of a sea border. Exactly is the area in contention the border of the two countries when it comes to the seats and the only way to explain where the disputed portion of Indian Ocean is without incurring angry correspondence from either Kenya or Somalia. Although to risk inviting saving emails from both is to say that it's either off Somalia's southern coast all of Kenya's Northern Coast. It will come as little surprise to listeners that the stretch of Ocean in question abounds with oil and gas deposits. Nineteen outbreak may focus Kenyan and Somali attention elsewhere and or it may offer a party to this argument what it perceives as cover for decisive action. There has been some suggestion. That Kenya has consented actually annexing portions of southern Somalia both to deter Al Shabaab and to further its claims on the ocean of what is presently the two countries shed coast or there may be the option of mediation by Ethiopian.

Iridium's Pivotal Role In Our Past And ... Maybe Our Future?
"We're talking about iridium as show. What does this element tell us about dinosaurs? and how they went extinct. We're going to go back. Tens of millions of years ago to start. Yeah well we start and say like nineteen eighty. That's what I said Richard. I said one thousand nine hundred nineteen eighty okay. Well that's actually. When an academic paper gets published by a group led by a father and son team from the a University of California at Berkeley Louis Alvarez the father of physicist and by the way Nobel Prize winner and his son Walter Alvarez? WHO's a geologist and they? We're interested in a specific period of time. In Earth's history it was a transition between two geologic periods the Cretaceous period and the Paleocene good ones too good period. Yeah so dinosaurs still roamed the earth during the Cretaceous period. But after that you don't find any of these dino bones except in our current dinosaurs birds. You're you know what I mean. I I do know what you mean. Yeah thinking of dinosaurs. Birds Birds Dinosaurs. Same thing it's sad. It's true so at any rate but the Alvarez's weren't actually trying to answer that big. Why did the dinosaurs go extinct? Mystery that point Walter and Louis Alvarez. We're trying to answer. Just one part of that riddle which is how quickly that transition between the two periods took place so walter trump off to Italy where there are rock outcrops that were laid down his sediment back at the time of that transition. Okay seems like a good idea. Why look at those rocks knocks well to get the back story? I talked to another Berkeley scientists. My name is Paul Renae. And I'm the director of the Berkeley Ju- Chronology Center any said the secret to figuring Out How fast. That transition happened involved measuring dust from outer space. That's constantly raining down on earth. Tiny amounts Louis Alvarez Walter's father her biggest physicist thought. Well you know we can determine that we can. We can make some reasonable assumptions about how much dust is coming in from from extraterrestrial sources. Okay extraterrestrial we're talking stuff from outside Earth or the atmosphere in Richard. Can I just say the fact that somebody thought thought about measuring cosmic dust to figure out the passage of time sixty million years ago is objectively awesome. It is and when you think about the dust coming from asteroids colliding with each other. It's even cooler and they were looking for particular stuff and In particular if we look at an element. That's rare on on earth but common in meteors in an element. That's rare on earth but common in asteroids Guess what we're talking about Matty I'm going to take out style and I'm GonNa say radium. Guess Excellent guests. Thank you are we. But what's the role of the dust here right well. Louis was operating unreasonable unreasonable assumption. which is that? This dust from meteors rains down on the earth. More or less constant rate. It's dust of course enriched with iridium. So I figured if they could measure is your how much iridium had built up in. This transitional layer. They would be able to tell. How long taken to accumulate? So I'm thinking sort of figuring out how much snow fell over a period of the time. If you know the rate at falls and how much is on the ground except this is tens of millions of years ago Roger Dodger tens of millions of years ago and the iridium doesn't Milton the sunlight so it sticks sticks around you can still see at sixty five or sixty six years later so so it didn't rate when they ran those calculations with the Alvarez's found was stunning. The results were so so extreme. That just just a the passage of a long time would not really explain this. It was many times greater than the amount amount of radium in this layer than expected just from this gradual accumulation so the conclusion they drew was that there had been some huge pulse of extraterrestrial Oriole's Joe Matter and the obvious conclusion that they quickly came to was that it was a large impact a large impact. We're talking to you asteroid did we are an asteroid They think the asteroid smashes into the earth destroying so much of life on earth and throwing up an enormous muscle mass of dust into the atmosphere. The dust itself caused mass extinctions but it also had iridium in it and it spread around the Earth so they realized this collision is a big one and and the conditions that resulted you know reasonably enough they thought they theorized killed off. These won't bring dinosaurs. You know what you're nobody ever thinks about that other life. I feel like it's always dinosaurs. Dinosaurs dinosaurs. I know you don't get little plastic models of marine for him. And if we're talking to you as I mentioned in this paper was published back in one thousand nine hundred eighty and back then. A catastrophic end seemed to mini scientists pretty far fetched because evolution takes place over millions of years so so a lot of scientists were expecting to see gradual changes. and and Paul Rennie says when the Alvarez has proposed this meteor theory created quite a stir in the community it did. Yeah I mean. It was originally not widely accepted but acceptance sort of came in waves and the biggest confirmation team win in the early nineties. There was the discovery of the crater on the northern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. A study published in. Today's issue of Science magazine appears to add weight to a theory that a giant media or struck the earth. Sixty five million years ago and what is now Mexico many scientists. This is the Intro to my story that aired in NPR back in Nineteen ninety-two. Some scientists. See this as evidence that helps prove their theory that the dinosaurs were wiped out by a giant asteroid or comet but as NPR NPR science correspondent Richard Harris reports the theories baby Richard Harris Science reporter even covering this story for a bit. I have indeed actually packs into the early nineteen eighties but that no dinosaur drug please and a really big asteroid could scatter iridium dust. Globally the question was. Where's the crater that a huge asteroid like that would make take a look and listen to all that? Join Your Voice you know I know well what what can be more fun than dead dinosaurs. Really Okay So. This study found the point of impact for the giant asteroid. Yes it was a crater one hundred ten miles across called Jiffy Lube and it was created by this asteroid that had a tremendous amount of explosive power. As you can. Well imagine sure so. When these geologist tested the age of the materials from the crater it turned out to date very closely to the mass extinction by the way? Dating methods. have been recalibrated calibrated since that paper. So scientists now say that catastrophe happened. Sixty six million years ago. Not Sixty five million. What's a million years among friends? Yeah yeah yeah absolutely so Joe. Yeah but the point is of course the impact and the dinosaurs demise lineup perfectly and for that nineteen ninety-two story. I talked to Carl Swisher at the Institute of Human Origins which at the time was in Berkeley Berkeley Berkeley Berkeley no even much larger when we went across the street to the UC. Berkeley and told Walter Alvarez the ages we're getting I think he was quite excited because he spent What the last Ten fifteen years trying to find a crater of each throughout the World Team Alvarez for the win absolutely yes for the most part. There's a lot of evidence but there will always be some skeptics in the scientific community. And you know it's also important maybe to mention that at the same time about the same time there was a whole lot of volcanic activity we also on the earth. So there's always people thinking one two punch. Maybe you're saying definitely came. But was it the absolute Khuda Gra for all these dinosaurs. That's still that's still debated. Yeah astroid touch volcanoes low bit of mix maybe so okay Richard Radium helped us figure out our dinosaur extinction mystery. You mentioned earlier that it could also help us potentially prevent the next global catastrophe. We're not talking another asteroid here. No we have Bruce Willis For Asteroids if you remember the action movie Armageddon No no no actually. We're talking about climate change climate change. How does a radium help? Well what we really need to do to. Combat climate change is to have clean fuel. That's cheaper than fossil fuels. If we could get such a thing in other words would quickly switch to the cheaper fuel and we'd stop dumping all that carbon dioxide said in the atmosphere. I don't know about quickly but sure. That's the dream. Richard Yeah Fair enough. So what's the link between clean fuels radium. Well we really liked to capture energy. She from sunlight and turn that into liquid fuels now. Plants figured this out long before the dinosaurs were even around. Tho- sent this says that's right and the first step in this process is to split a water molecule. And the problem is this is not so easy to do in the lab what chemist need is a catalyst so the chemicals that that speed up chemical reactions out there getting stuff done. You got it and I'm guessing you can see where I'm going with this. A radium is a good catalyst. It is a great catalyst for this purpose and imagine turning sunlight into hydrogen fuel or liquid fuel. You could put into an airplane. Of course there's one eighty problem with the scenario. Iridium you will recall. Aw is one of the rarest elements on Earth's crust because of his scarcity's one of the most expensive metals as well. So he does complicate our Laura Research so is the Mother Nature through that us. That's Guanghui Wing. He's a chemistry professor at Boston College. And he's trying to develop an iridium catalyst to make fuel out of sunlight and he's trying to get around this issue of how little of it. We have our ideas that we wanted to utilize this catheters to his maximum. That is we wanted Khimik every atom conce and since iridium is so rare he wants to make sure every single atom in a catalyst is actually at work speeding up reactions even so oh it's probably a stretch to think about building industry around iridium right so he and his colleagues are also hoping that once they understand how iridium does this magic they can find something else that will work as a catalyst as well or nearly as well and ideally something. That's abundant on the earth. So iridium or something like it could potentially help save the day. That's

Early humans may have shared Europe with a giant bird
"This is a discovery net Crimean cave, which is that little regionally the north of the waxy? This is suggesting that early Europeans lived alongside some of the largest birds ever to exist. This research is published in the journal of vertebrate, paleontology previously thought that such gigantism birds was limited to islands, Madagascar, New Zealand ustralia. We have now have newly discovered specimen in this cave in northern coast of Black Sea. It is a bird is giant as the elephant bird. Ceiling moa and maybe source of meat bones feathers eggs that sort of thing for early humans in the region, quote voice from doctor, Nikitas Lenka, Russian Academy of sciences. When I first felt the weights of the bird, whose thighbone I was holding in my hand. I thought it must be mad Aghassi elephant bird Foucault 'cause no birds of the size of ever been reported from Europe. However, the structure of the bone unexpectedly told a different story. We don't have yet enough data to say, whether it was most closely Raila to ostriches or other birds, but we estimate, it weighed four hundred fifty kilograms, which if you're not familiar with kilograms as a metric for hundred and fifty kilograms is approximately the equivalent of four hundred fifty thousand grams or nine hundred ninety two pounds or that. That's big. That's really big formula.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here on the northern coast of the Yucatan peninsula near the town of chick. Love. Mexico is a crater about one hundred twenty miles in diameter. That's about one hundred ninety kilometers the asteroid that created this crater was about six miles. That's ten kilometers wide and hit the earth sixty five million years ago in spite of these immense, measurements, the craters hard to see even if you're standing right on its rim to get a good map. Nasa. Researchers examined it from space. Ten years before the nineteen ninety discovery of the chick fil crater, physicists, Louise, Alvarez and geologist. Walter Alvarez, a father son team proposed a theory about the impact that we know today created it. They noted increased concentrations of the element iridium in sixty five million year old clay radium is rare on earth, but it's more common in some objects from space like meteors and asteroids, according to the Alvarez theory, a massive asteroid had hit the earth blanketing the world iridium, but shower of particles wasn't the only affect of the collision the impact caused fires climate change and widespread extinctions at the same time dime stores, which until then had managed to survive for a one hundred eighty million years died out, geophysicist Doug Robertson of the university of Colorado at boulder theorizes, the impact heated earth's atmosphere dramatically causing most big dinosaurs to die with an hours this mass extinction. Definitely happened fossil evidence shows that about seventy percent of species living on earth at that time. Became extinct. The massive die off marks the border between the Cretaceous and tertiary periods of earth's history. Which are also known as the age of reptiles and the age of mammals respectively today, scientists call the extinction decay t- event after the German spellings of Cretaceous and tertiary the t- event had an enormous effect on life on earth. But what would have happened if the asteroid hadn't missed would it have led to a world where people in dinosaurs would coexist or one in which neither could live. In a world where an asteroid whizzed past earth instead of crashing down with a force of a hundred million tons of TNT life could have progressed much differently. Sixty five million years ago, some of the animals and plants that are common today. We're just getting started these include placental mammals, which are mammals that develop inside a placenta in the womb and angiosperms, which are flowering plants insects that rely on flowers, such as bees were also relatively new many of these life forms thrived after the t- event, and without that mass reptilian extinction to clear the way they may not have found ecological niches to fill in this scenario. Today's world might be full of reptiles and short on mammals, including people. But even if the asteroid hadn't hit done stores and other Cretaceous life forms might have become extinct. Anyway, some dinosaur species had started to dwindle long before the asteroid's impact. This has led many researchers to conclude that the asteroid was just one aspect of a complex story. Other global catastrophes. Massive volcanic eruptions in what is now. India most likely played a role also the earth's changing landscape as the supercontinent Panja broke up into today's continents. Probably had something to do with it too. Then there's another argument that the chip to love asteroid hit the earth too early to have caused the extinction. Researchers Gerda Keller and Marcus Harding, both conclude that the impact took place three hundred thousand years before the end of the Cretaceous period. Keller theorizes chick fil impact was one of at least three massive collisions Harding argues at the iridium layer didn't come from the web asteroid but from another event such as series of meteors burning up in the atmosphere. He bases. This theory on ROY particles objected during the impact a most of these are in an older layer of the earth than the Katie iridium layer, according to both of these points of view the absence of the club. Asteroid strike may not have had a big affect on the k t extinction earth was a warm planet for most of the time that dinosaurs lived after the end of the Cretaceous period, the world got a lot colder and experienced several ice ages. Whether dinosaurs could have survived such change in climate is debatable. It's hard to come to a definitive conclusion about what the world would look like today without the chicks love impact. But the question of whether people in dinosaurs could have coexisted is a captivating won the ideas, president in everything from the Congo legend of mock lame Obembe to King Kong to the pervading kitsch of the Flintstones. Then of course, there's the prevailing scientific theory about the origin of birds that they are in essence dinosaurs that we are coexisting with today.
