"It's you know it's crippling for some people it's motivating for other people and there's you know there's this gray area when it comes to grief in incomes to trauma and i really wanted to see how that affected these different people who had the surface may not feel like they really come together and a meeting away but then you start to see how it affects all of these people differently and what drives them to throughout the film. Yeah i mean it really is interesting because i without giving anything away you have one character trying to console another character and basically saying you know one thing and the other character turns around is is basically like i'm in pain. I'm hurting. i'm grieving and it just really kind of stood out to make some like well. This is something. I would see a drama and it's really refreshing to see that in nfl. Mike this because yeah. I mean normally you know you back in the old days you buy your ticket you go into the theater. You know what you're going to get and with this you know. Obviously there are certain rules that you're going to play by but also you're you're going. Yeah but you may think that this is this type of movie but it's really this type of movie well and it was really. It was really refreshing to see your cast an amazing job in the film. It must have been really good seeing them. Bring these characters to life. So i'm wondering. How long did it to do the casting process for this. We started in november twenty eighteen and we were casting through christmas which was the industry shuts down in december like weeks. And it's like getting people to answer. The phone is obvious tasks. We're we're trying to like you know this was pre covid so we were doing it. The old fashioned bringing people into the room. And and i really made acquaint you watched in the eighties and nineties ensemble films at light. The casting process was still important because it was like if these characters have no chemistry in the movie doesn't work exactly and so you know we really took the time to say okay. Here's all the people we like from south tapes. Let's bring them in. And we started doing mixing matches by just bringing these people together and making sure that even if it's not like perfect chemistry that there is a connection there. We can massage and and polish throughout. But we got really lucky because these people just found each other and we were on set. Obviously when you're low budget trailer everybody's we had this giant party bus and it was just great way. You know it was huge but it was like they can just sit in there between takes you know when we were shooting at the warehouse and stuff lakes. It really gave them the opportunity to bond on a personal level and not just as their characters. It's two am in. They're sitting there having a coffee and discussing you know their lives. And i thought that really you know even talking to them about it. It did help. Bring them together in a meaningful way. Really glad that kind of worked outwit dead. Yeah and it shows shows on the film because you believe that these characters you know based on even outside of their in their real relationships you could you could tell that there is a chemistry there and that there is more than just pages of script as you can see that because there are some movies. Where like of like this. No way and there are others where you go. Wow that really works so well well done with that. One of the things too is that you have great female characters in the film. You have pierce. You have ivy ray josephine and what i like is that there's a consistency and it really felt natural that they were strong female characters..

How will the MAX change aircraft certification?
"Lawmakers on Capitol Hill say the FAA certification process. Broken are they right. I think broken is a little extreme I there are areas that need improvement. But I think that's something that you you could go back forty years and say the same thing and in many cases the same areas that need improvement with the Max me the most interesting thing about the Mac Saga where a year March thirteenth will be a year into the grounding at least here in the United States and the primary issue that Boeing was already working on before that Ethiopian accident which was a second maxine was fixing the moving maneuvering characteristics. Augmentation SYSTEM CAST. Which we've talked about written about ad. Infinitum that was fixed in the middle of last year in in terms of what Boeing was going to do. And how they were GONNA make the modification so so we still don't know when the airplane is going to return to service and since the middle of last year. Boeing has been addressing other issues that it has found that the FAA is found in that some four regulators have found. That really have very little to do with the cast. Therein are the big questions about how the certification process failed. The Max and what you know getting back to Congress which just introduced their first piece of legislation out of all this yesterday. What can be done to close some of these gaps That the MAX isn't back in service is more of A. It's it's it's IT'S A. It's a reflection on the number of things that are being reexamined assumptions that were made during the design certification process that have proven to be. That aren't standing up to renewed scrutiny. Predate the Max inherent to the 737 revisiting the assumptions. And that also questioning the to me when I look at that question. The very basis of how we decide the safety of an aircraft. We have a data driven safety system. We have a statistical basis for deciding if something is safe is something is critical if something that goes a catastrophic failure and we have always relied on statistical measures to set that level of safety. But when you are revisiting an aircraft got tens of millions of hours of experience and finding things that may have caused one or two problems over those ten million hours you questioning the very basis of the the the way we calculate safety which which does have huge implications for how you survive. Because if you do if you undermine that very basis of statistical data driven safety assessments you are opening our own kind of worms. I think some of the assumptions that were made One of the. We're we're going to talk about the two significant reports that have been done one by the DOT special committee and one by the regular ten regulatory authorities around the world that joint authorities to technical reviewer of the Jada report One theme. That's in both of those is a human factors related assumptions that were built into the the the safety System Safety analysis that are done on every project product. And we're done you know. Many of them were down on the MAX system level and building up to the aircraft level. That didn't have any data behind them in the big one that we know that's been talked about a lot is how pilots would react in certain scenarios. One second to identify a problem. Three seconds to react in the case of runaway stabiliser. Which is how Boeing determined than M CASS? Related Malfunction would manifest itself to the crew. Two accidents showed that that something was wrong. And now the bigger picture recommendations is that the the the the assumption that a pilot will react in a certain amount of time needs to validate it in some way special committee. Report thing says that we need to expand that out from a test pilot community right at the moment. All of those things are based on very experienced military pilot and built. You're trying to have gone on to become test pilots. They are not necessarily representative of line pilots and and line pilots in different parts of the world who may not may not react the same way and that we need to question oceans the baseline for those in a way. They're already being questioned. Changes are already are already Being made as part of the Max reapproval there's a flight standardization board process that that Boeing in the FAA are going through again to validate minimum recommended minimum training standards and turn them into required minimum training standards in the past when the FAA has done these. They've used pilots from really their own backyard. Pilots that are under the same regulations at the the under the FAA regulations. In some cases there were some Canadian. Pilots were brought in but never a global representation of Airlines. That have that are under ca as at a very different sets rules than the FAA does that is already happening and that is a rare example of a relatively quick change in aircraft certification. A lot of a lot of what this this special committee report and the the Jayder have brought in the final report from Lion. Air Six ten which has done a lot of the certification issues. That are being brought up as you said. They're not new human. The human factors issue is not new at all the FAA recognize the importance of human factors after a series of accidents in the early nineties. Where mode confusion automation and the major study came out in one thousand nine hundred ninety six that led to rule changes that weren't put in place until the early two thousand ten but the but they happen. The FAA recognize the importance of having human factors experts on staff on both white standards and certification back. Then that waned somewhere between then and now one of the big weaknesses of the FAA has. They don't have enough human factors experts on the aircraft certification side either in the headquarters during the Transport Airplane Directorate or Aircraft Sector. That are looked that. Look that are charged. Look at assumptions that the applicants are making and flagging them for issues that are human factors related cast as would have been a special report. Says says you've got to look at that for every change. You make the aircraft in every possible implication that changed whenever you might put a laugh at into a brand new airplane but then not put the same level of attention when you make a small change to the aircraft. So that's what they're saying. Is that every. Change needs to be assessed from human factors level because it has an impact. So you guys are mentioning reports we should. We should note for our listeners. You know there's a report on the first Max accident. The liner crash November twenty eighteen. And then there's a couple of task force reports that you're also referring to what can we glean from all these reports As to how certification needs to be improved so in in the most recent feature IRA took a look at the joint authorities review. Which was the first time you've had multiple authorities really take a look Elena certification. They looked at the MAX flight. Control System Certification the special committee that dot setup and also the NTSB has waited with some recommendations. I pulled out three common themes in both the first one is to human factors element that we've touched on there needs to be a broader integration of human factors on the aircraft certification side and it needs to be it needs to be prioritized from the very very beginning of a of a certification project. I'm take a global aspect of global space not a very narrowly. Us focused right experience capability. That you're assuming right. Recognize that a product. It's that you are producing is not going to be. It's going to be operated by to your standard near regulations. You know and Mr Miss Civil Aviation Authority had but also elsewhere around the world so that was one the second one is the delegation issue that we've talked about the how to improve this process one of the fundamental misconceptions about the FAA regulations. Is that the agency somehow has the power to ensure that all the products that are being developed under its regulations meet its regulations and that is not true at all the FAA has the has the authority to verify to spot check but they do not have the authority to make sure that whatever is being designed to the regulations that has always been up to the applicant. Always specially says there is. There is fundamentally no other ways to do it. He said it's a very efficient way to do it and you couldn't possibly expect the FAA to the level of staffing expertise to do it so that has to be delegation. They made the point that even more delegation in Europe and the reason the US. But I think he said he works in a different way little different system but yes the actually more of the work goes out. But there's a little bit more of a more rigorous process and and different oversight oversight is really the. Us focus is is. How'd you manage that person

S. employers added nearly two million jobs in the first eleven months of this year and while that's down from the two point four million in the same period last year it's still pretty strong the eleventh year of an economic expansion average wages rose a little over three percent in the last year slightly more for those at the bottom of the income ladder and the stock market spent much of December setting new records even if I have a lot of consumers these days aren't directly invested in the stock market you know they see the headlines and see it as a good sign the market's performance looks even better because last December was so lousy the Dow Jones industrial average is up twenty two percent for this year but the game would be only half that large if you count from the end of November twenty eighteen before government shut down and the threat of an all out trade war triggered a stock market swoon last Christmas this year the government managed to keep the lights on manta commas Nermin bear of ash of H. as market says trade tensions with China and other countries have been turned down to a slow boy well we're not out of the woods area and there's there's still a fair amount of uncertainty although the good news is it looks like we sort of step back from the precipice on a lot of these issues still some of the damage from the trade war has already been done manufacturing's been in a slump for the last four months factories are especially sensitive to global forces and nervous business owners have been reluctant to invest a year ago at this time federal reserve officials thought they would be raising interest rates to prevent the economy from overheating instead an abrupt about face fed chairman drone palace colleagues cut interest rates three times between July and October anything anybody saw coming the challenges that we face this year they were a surprise houses in his college were forced to change course when confronted with the president's trade war and a slowdown in global growth I am pleased that we would move to support the economy in the way that we did I think our moves will we'll prove appropriate and again I I I think both the economy and monetary policy right now I think we're in a good place lower interest rates have given a boost to the housing market but there are still challenges out there president trump has a media with China will be signed in a couple of weeks but most of the terrorists are still in place and Boeing's announcement that it's temporarily halting production of the troubled seven three seven Max jet will put a noticeable dent in first quarter growth economic growth was already slowing to about two point three percent this year and somewhat less than that next year still says the economy is not likely to grind to a halt it looks like we've dodged the recession it looks like manufacturing activity may have had a trough we have lowered now the probability of a recession both in the U.

Why impaired boating includes basically everything now
"The differently questions I'm about to ask our silly but the reason I'm asking them will become clear during today's episode so have you ever had a beer while paddling a canoe what about drinking and a Kayak what about cracking a cold one while lounging in your nearest lake on an inflatable mattress for those of US lucky enough to have cottages or cabins and that's kind of a summer weekend ritual and although you know by now or at least you really should you can't operate a motorboat after having a couple. A canoe is different right or at the very least a floating lounger certainly is right. Maybe right now it depends on the cops and the courts the judge a recent conviction that came about after a tragedy has now opened the door for just about anything involving watercraft and alcohol from canoes is to those loungers two pool noodles technically and yes an impaired boating conviction will cost you your driver's license and leave you with a permanent criminal record so yeah was questions not so silly anymore Jordan Keith Rawlings. This is the big story week. One of our Friday cottage in-cabin Specials Ryan Platt is an Ottawa based reporter with the National Post Brian. Hello why don't you start by <hes> just telling me because I hadn't seen it until the ruling came down the story of David Cillers and how all this began so this started in April twenty seventeen it was was originally a police call just about somebody who seemed to be in distress on a freeway ramp in Ontario's cottage country so it's near <unk> brace bridge in the Muskoka region of Ontario and when the police arrived the sky was shivering cold hold and he had no shoes on and he was soaking wet. It was just barely above zero that day and what eventually the police figured out from talking to him was he had been out on a canoe in the river. The canoe had tipped and a boy a young boy eight years old had been <hes> carried away on the river and they were very close to a waterfall and he went over as it turned out he went over the waterfall so the police quickly conducted a search found the young boy who was who was already dead in the water by that point and the police then turn to the question of intoxication breathalysed David Sellers who was thirty seven years old at the time he was over the legal limit and so he was charged with impaired operation of a vessel Russell and this ended up becoming the first case ever to go to court <hes> at least that anybody can find in any court records is the first ever time cases gone to court to test whether a canoe counts as a vessel in our impaired driving laws because doesn't tell this boats have counted on impaired driving laws since the nineteen sixty one but until this point had all been motorized boats powerboats and things like that this was the first time that edit ever been tried on a canoe and so the judge had to rule on whether canoe who counted and he ultimately ruled yes so tell me <hes> how the police have traditionally dealt with incidents like these if this had never been tested in court until now I think it really depends on the police force in the part of the country but in Ontario for whatever reason. Season Ontario police have been more likely this includes both the Ontario provincial police and I believe also the regional police forces in the G._T._A.. The Greater Toronto area so the Peel region police and I think even the Toronto Police have also taken in the stands but especially the Ontario provincial police who patrol cottage country and much of the Great Lakes areas and a lot of waterfronts in Ontario have long taken the stance that because vessel is not defined in the criminal code which the whole issue here. It's just been a unclear term for the decades that it's been in the criminal code. Ontario provincial police have long taken the view that canoes and Kayaks and paddleboats all count as a vessel but prosecute prosecute so then they have laid charges before we know I talked to <hes> -Tario police <hes> marine unit coordinator so in in coordinates a lot of the marine enforcement activities that they do. He said he knows that they charged three people who in twenty eleven but the prosecutors withdrew the charges because they didn't think there was a reasonable chance of conviction in court so basically police have been trying to make this happen for a while but prosecutors felt that they didn't have a very good chance of a conviction court in some ways. I think they he may have been waiting for the right case to come along because if you're looking to set a legal precedent you want what's called a good set of facts and so a case where an eight year old boy died because the person operating the canoe with him <hes> was intoxicated. That's the kind of case I think prosecutors decided this is a serious enough case that we're willing to take it to court so what had to happen. <hes> in the months between when the police investigated and decided to lay the charges and until it came in front of a judge for a ruling what was interesting was there was a parliamentary bill that was being debated kind of alongside this as a criminal case was was playing out in fact so Cillers was charged in April twenty seventeen and it was in April two thousand seventeen at the same time the government introduced an impaired driving bill bill c forty six this hiding of the bill was totally coincidental. It was actually meant to coincide with the introduction of their bill to legalize marijuana so the same time the government legalizing marijuana it wanted to make sure that it was taking public safety very seriously so it introduced an impaired driving bill to go with it but what's interesting is that the bill c forty six contained all kinds of changes to impaired driving laws including to allow police to start checking for marijuana at the side of the road but it also looked to fix up a bunch of areas of the law and one of the areas that it looked to fix up. Was this long-standing issue that there's no definition of what a vessel is so at the same time that you had this precedent setting in case potentially coming forward to court because prosecutors had decided to go forward with charges against Mister Solarz you had parliament with a bill where the Justice Department was proposing. They said they're information was that prosecutors. Don't go forward with this charge in so they were proposing to clarify the definition of vessel to say doesn't count as anything that's powered exclusively by muscle power which is basically to say that if you're just paddling you're not counted impaired driving loss so so you had this bill that was going to clear up this point at the same time that this case had just been started in M._p.'s were ultimately convinced. This was about six months later they there was protests. They heard about this case for one thing. which I do think played a role they also so how protests from safe boating advocates sane? We are are mass GINA's at any. If you're intoxicated you shouldn't go out on the water and so this bills a problem for us. If you're saying paddlers don't count M._p.'s were convinced by that. They took that clause. <unk> out of the bill and so the part that would have cleared up what a vessel council has was taken out of the bill and so the definition remained bag which meant the judge had to rule on it and so what did the judge rule uh specifically the judge it. There's an inch so there there was a separate ruling on this aspect of the case it came out in November twenty eighteen and the judge had to hid invited arguments for both sides from the crown about why canoe should counting are impaired driving laws and from the the defense about why it shouldn't and the judge had to because like it's just has vessels in the criminal code. It doesn't say what a vessel is and so the judge had to look through dictionary definitions through legal definitions from from other countries and the two things though that I think were the most <hes> influential in the judge is thinking was Howard vessels treated in other law laws in Canada so not the criminal code but like marine regulations said <hes> are based on <hes> customs regulations and things like that and also what happened at parliament because parliament the M._p.'s had the chance to remove paddling and chose not to and so based on those two factors the the judge ruled that essentially if you can use it to navigate on a waterway it's a vessel and <hes> so that would mean canoes count and it would also potentially include a lot of other things but particularly uh-huh kayaks and rowboats and things like that so that was a separate ruling and the trial had still not completed then which back came recently exactly so the crux of this is that slurs was charged with basically really two types of offenses the four charges and total but the two types of offenses were impaired driving offenses and then a criminal negligence causing death charge and so if the judge had ruled that canoes don't count the criminal negligence the charge would have gone forward but the other charges couldn't have because they were impaired driving offenses he ended up getting convicted of all four and so when this was being debated in parliament and justice officials were explaining why they were going to paneling out of impaired. We're driving charges. They said our understanding is that prosecutors. Don't use these charges anyway but even so at criminal negligence. Herge is is seems like the appropriate charge to us in a case where somebody is intoxicated about and causes either bodily godly harm or death the thing about an a negligent criminal negligence charge is that it there's a high burden on the crown to prove it. They have to prove that somebody was acting not just carelessly but in a marked departure from how a reasonable person person would act in those circumstances and recklessly endangered somebody's life and so it's not just carelessness. It's criminal action and in this case of course they were I think based on following the case they were easily easily able able to meet that threshold to say that he acted in a criminally negligent way and that's why this eight year old boy died the impaired driving charge though which he was also convicted of it's much easier for prosecutors to get that conviction because it it's the act it's not whether you endanger somebody's life or not it's it's actually simply the act of paddling while you're drunk or stoned that becomes illegal and once they've got the breathalyzer tests and they can show you were indeed paddling or controlling the canoe in any way. You're basically cooked. That is the illegal act right there unless you can find some kind of procedural error which defense lawyers are very good at doing but it is the reason why this is. I think an interesting legal conundrum is because impaired driving laws are extremely serious laws and have gotten it seems like almost every year governments are are increasing the penalties around them but they're meant. They're designed for motorized vehicles. That's why they're so serious because they endanger the public and so now if you have this applied to paddlers. Are we really saying that you are guilty of this very very serious criminal offence just for paddling we'll in there are mandatory minimums. I mean maybe not specifically but acceptable mandatory minimums minimums for any <hes> impaired driving conviction right Yup. It's <hes> so there's a judge's only have a certain amount of discretion under these laws because there are mandatory minimums and and having you know report a lot on the justice system in Ottawa and and <hes> you know legislation that would amend the Criminal Code. I personally don't believe that mandatory minimums unimpaired driving are ever going away. I think that this is one of the mandatory minimums that the government will always keep and and so it's a mandatory minimum fine for if it's just a basic I defense and you're driving of it's at least a thousand dollars. It might even be more than that. That's on a first offense on the second offense you quickly get into mandatory jail time and of course if there's any kind of bodily harm or death involved then jail time is almost given but this is the thing about impaired driving is that you don't even have to hurt anybody. If you get caught doing it. That's the criminal offense and so we now in the situation where even just paddling Adalina canoe or Kayak or almost anything else that you can use on the water you are subject to all these these mandatory minimum sentences and you don't even have to have heard anybody and so given the conviction and given the fluid the definition of vessel. What does this precedent actually opened the door for because I know I know paddlers and you could make a case for canoeing with children or row boating with children and putting people at serious risk of bodily harm but there are all sorts of other other vessels out there that I would have never imagined counting under this law yes and so the first thing that needs to be said here is that this was a decision of Ontario called the Ontario Court of Justice so it's the Lower Court Ontario okay with means it's not it's not a binding finding decision on other courts that doesn't Happen Front for the province of Ontario until it goes to a higher court such as the Ontario Court of Appeal and it wouldn't happen even for it wouldn't be binding on other provinces until the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on it so we may eventually get to that point but at this point a if a case comes to a different judge that judges

Production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vocal bomb here. If you've ever heard of a seed Bank, the basic idea is this when the apocalypse is over and the forests are nothing, but smoking ruins and the fields Barron of grain fear. Not we can rebut the world thanks to our bench seeds stored in bunkers strategically located from here to eternity. These fall barred international seed vault in Norway, for instance, currently holds more than eight hundred eighty thousand seeds and has the capacity to hold up to two point five billion. Seeds are pretty amazing forms of reproduction. All you need to do is dry them out and freeze them solid and they can last for years. It's a comforting thought and ace up civilization sleeve, and the seemingly less and less unlikely scenario that we self destruct the UN's global strategy for plant conservation plans to Bank seventy five percent of all plant species by twenty twenty but hold that. Arguably comforting thought according to a study from researchers at the Royal Botanic Gardens Q, there's a significant catch they discovered that whole host of plant seeds just can't be banked, including Cotto ca cow and mango their findings which were published in November twenty eighteen issue of the journal nature plants detail, how a full thirty three percent of tree species alone are on this list, including oak and chestnut. Trees were still thirty six percent of our critically endangered species are also on bankable, and that's not even counting twenty seven percents of the regular old endangered plants or thirty five percent of the vulnerable ones. So why can't these seeds be banked apparently, not Alcides like the drying out process and for this? They're labeled recalcitrant seeds, which seems a little unfair calling. Seed stubborn just because it can't tolerate dehydration as a bit rich coming from species that can barely last two days without water. Luckily, there's a way out of this jam and it involves liquid nitrogen, which is always fun. Yes. To make sure we've got all our seeds safely tucked away in indefinite storage. We have to resort to cryopreservation dislike Ted Williams and all the other immortals being kept on ice. All one has to do is dissect the seed, priorites embryo and plunged into smoking cold nitrogen instead of storing seeds at conventional negative twenty degrees celsius that's negative for degrees Fahrenheit, going cry. Oh will keep these finicky seeds in suspended animation at a subglacial temperature of negative one hundred ninety six degrees celsius that's negative three hundred and twenty degrees Fahrenheit. Some researchers advocate cryopreservation for all seeds, even the cooperative ones because they'll last longer. Of course, a full out. Apocalypse isn't the only reason for banking seeds climate change habitat loss and the growing threat of plant pathogens are already threatening bio-diversity. So the time to preserve seeds is now though taking steps to protect habitats and slow climate change would certainly be good as well.

The Psychology of Circles
"You can play along at home with our first story just draw a circle simple as that grab a piece of paper and something to write with and get to it this might sound weird. But you can actually learn quite a bit about someone's background from the way they draw circle. There's actual data and science behind this. So don't worry. We're not just talking about some pseudoscience handwriting analysis kind of thing. Okay. Did you draw your circle? Well, here are a couple of fun facts. If you're American there's an eighty six percent chance that you draw your circles counterclockwise. But for people living in Japan eighty percent of people draw their circles in the opposite direction. This data comes from November twenty sixteen when Google released in AI game called quick draw. It was kind of like the game pictionary you'd start to draw something and then Google's algorithm would try. Guess what you were drawing in twenty seconds or less courts. Use data from the game to look at one hundred nineteen thousand unique circles to see how different people draw them. They found that the direction that you dry. Your circle is quote linked to geography and cultural upbringing deep-rooted and hundreds of years of written language in significant in developmental psychology. And trends in education today, unquote, the clockwise and counterclockwise patterns, probably come down to language Japanese and Chinese writing follows a strict stroke order with characters drawn from the top left in the direction of the bottom. Right. A nineteen eighty-five study showed that most people living in China druthers circles clockwise, possibly because of the clockwise strokes in semi cursive, Chinese calligraphy stroke order is so important in these countries, it can even signal your level of education on the flip side Americans are taught to draw shapes counterclockwise to prep their motor movements for what's called magic see letter formation as in the curve in the letters C G Q and oh test this out on your friends. And see what happens weirdly, my initials are c g and I just drew a circle, and I started at the bottom and did it clockwise. That's so weird. I know. Well, I I can't do it now because I'm too aware. I hope everyone knew drew a circle drew a circle before. I started talking if you dislike being cold as much as we do. Then you come to the right podcast because we have some tips from the world of physiology to help you understand how your body stays warm in the wintertime, or you know, whenever it's cold as reported by exercise physiologist, John Eric Smith for the conversation. Your blood does a lot of things while it's coursing through your body. It's carrying nutrients and oxygen and other important stuff. And it also brings heat produced in your muscles to your skin where it gets released when it gets cold around you your body moves blood to your torso to keep your vital organs warm at the same time. Your body sends less blood flow to your skin that means less heat makes it to your skin. Celeste heat gets lost here environment. This helps you hang on to your internal heat longer. You know, how you shiver and your teeth chatter when you get really cold that's because bodies cranking up your muscle activity to help you stay warm that movement actually helps you break down more nutrients to crank. Up your internal heat. People lose heat at different rates, depending on their body size body fat and metabolic activity to smaller people with less body, fat lose more heat than larger people with more body. Fat more muscle. Mass means more heat gets produced and more body fat works as an insulator. So there's less heat loss. So let's get into how you can stay warm, obviously, warm clothing as helpful like, a hat and coat and gloves. But believe it or not it's a myth that most of your heat escapes through your head. Remember how I said your blood rushes to your torso to keep in vital organs worm? Well, that's why a coat will do you a lot more good than hat. If you had to pick one of the other, you'll keep your limbs warmer. If you keep your torso warm since that'll help, you keep a steady blood flow something else, they can help you. Stay warm is being physically active doing jumping jacks or running around makes your muscles contract, which breaks down more nutrients, which dinner is extra heat, but layers of clothing and physical activity can tip the balance past what you need to offset heat loss. If that happens. Get an increase in body temperature. And your body will start sweating to try to cool down, and that's bad. Because then you'll deal with more heat laws when your sweat evaporates one more thing that can help you stay warm though, eating your body. Temperature will go up when your body is busy breaking down food. That's why if you go camping you may want to have a snack before bed. So you stay warmer while you sleep hope that helps us they warm this winter or next winter if it's warm wherever you are right now, we'll wrap up today with a trick to keep you from choking under pressure choking is the thing. Researchers have actually studied for years they've found that we perform better the more. We have to gain. But only up to a certain point when we have too much to gain. We tend to mess up. Even if we're doing something we do every day. In other words, we choke. You might get sweaty palms or even feel nauseous, but choking is mostly a mental affliction the potential reward or loss of reward distracts you from the task at hand and your performance level drops choking shows up on brain scans as heightened activity in the ventral. Stratum that's the part of your brain where you analyze risk and reward. So November twenty eighteen a team of researchers from the California Institute of technology published a study on how to change your thinking to stop from choking. They gave participants hand eye coordination tests, which came with rewards ranging from zero to a hundred dollars for successfully completing the challenge in some cases, researchers asked participants to reimagined their situation or use what's called cognitive reappraisal strategy. The reward structure didn't change, but they were told to imagine the reward amount in cash already sitting in their pocket as they perform the task, basically, they imagined they already had that reward and participants choked substantially less when they used this reappraisal trick than when they thought of themselves as striving for a prize MRI scans also showed that reappraisal reduced the amount of activity in that risk and reward focused ventral stratum. It's not a perfect fix reappraisal didn't prevent all choking. But for an easy purely mental shift. It was a surprisingly. Effective antidote. So the next time you're trying for a major reward whether it's the World Series or a lifetime supply of chicken nuggets. Just imagine. It's already yours. You're not trying to prove you deserve.

"Social Justice warriors are gonna make it impossible for Democrats win in twenty twenty. We'll explain back to Brent winnable on AM seven sixty talk and breaking make you appreciate you guys. At Armstrong and Getty for sure great station. Some of the best listeners best best folks anywhere. And I wanna share with you something that's going to be coming up here. This coming weekend up in Manchuria county, actually, and we all remember what happened. The day after election day in November of last year, November twenty eighteen remember what happened? Well. Well, not talking about the political component. I'm talking about the twin disasters that struck southern California. The first one being the borderline shooting. And the second one being the Wolsey fire. There's a great organization called back the badge USA back to bed USA dot com. And Darren parent is the founder of back to badge USA dot com. And he joins us on the line now to talk about this upcoming benefit concert blood driving all around important event to support our first responders up in Ventura County, and I'm going to be making the trick the track up there. To attend. Darren welcome to the show. Are you doing great? Brad. You're going to do a good job. Keynote speech. We're looking forward to here. Yeah. I'm looking forward to to delivering it. So this is coming up on February nights Saturday this coming Saturday from twelve to five constitution park in Camarillo. Tell me about your core mission it back the badge USA. Wh what is the core mission of the organization? Well, the gentleman who wrote our mission statement summed it up pretty well. And what did it said was something that I couldn't have articulated five hundred years. He basically said that we're there to serve our first responders for what they do for the community. And let me quote, exactly the mission statement says. That back to badge USA has been organized to provide meaningful support to our communities first responders and their families as an expression of our of appreciation for protection and service. Pretty well. So were there to honor the first responders to draw good attention positive attention to what they do our long forcement hermetic fire, and we've heard enough negative things about police over the past several years are just just people get tired of that. And they do a great job. They really too. So it's the fired. So it's the paramedics stir their first there. They save lives every day. Can you talk a little bit about the impact of the aftermath of of these two disasters striking in such close proximity to the border line shooting, which is a horrible horrible event. Taking place. An attack in Thousand Oaks and then being buttressed by the Wolsey fire breaking out at the almost same time. How did this all go down? Well, I remember back when required versus on air KFI AM be he's talking about the witch fire, and I just couldn't relate to that. I was a bad thing. It's back two thousand seventeen you guys went through a lot pretty devastating thing which fire, but when the boron shooting happened, I was actually a mile away and Thompson Oakes. And I was looking up at the sky, and I see congress on like what the heck the next day the sky is solo smoke and my whole neighborhood. Look at what's going on. And. Well, that was the walls you fire. It was coming up the back hill had it gone to the top of that hill. Then when it came down into and you Ventura County for awhile didn't would've came down for hill village and upper mission oaks would have been a center my house. So when that happened, it's like, you know, what we we had organized. This is just a regular blood drive with a couple of bands playing. You're kinda like your charger blood drive used to be years ago with Roger used to cover it and try to get three or four or five hundred years of blood donation have a couple of bands playing have a lot of people there. Boeing those two incidents happen. We got together said wait a second. We need to take that existing blood drive. Make it a complete benefit concert. Yeah. And raise money for that. And this is because it's important to it's important to to support these first responders, we talk about folks who we talk about the folks who are. Doing the sort of things that they do and going running to the sound of the shots running to the gunfire. Running into into the danger zone going in when the fires are there are at their worst. And the the the outlook is the bleakest, and these are very special people we often hear people talk about the five stages of grief. I think there are multiple stages of of heroism. And when you think about the fact that the natural human inclination because I was I was in. I was in New York City on nine eleven I saw it up close and personal what what happened. And when you think about the natural inclination. It's not to run up those stairs. It's not to run into the building. When it's on fire. It's not to run into the building. When the shots are being fired. It's to do the opposite. It's to flee its to seek shelter. It's to hide and we have such heroes amazing heroes, especially here in. In California in southern California. More broadly and all the way up to central California as well. Because these are the folks that do these sorts of things so Darren what is the website where people can get more information about this upcoming event. Where do they go to get more information? WWW dot back is up badge. BAD back. The badge you at a dot com. Back. Back to USA dot com. All right. We're looking forward to it coming up on Saturday, and we'll be we'll be kicking off at twelve noon and go until five o'clock. I appreciate you being here, man. And I'm looking forward to seeing you in person. Take care have a wonderful evening and you're doing a good show. Thanks, all the best. That's Darren apparent putting us on up in up in Ventura. You can get more information back to bed USA dot com. And it's going to be up in Camarillo just north of LA. I'm going to be making the run up there. Daniel Cassandra's going to MC, and I'm going to be doing the keynote address and it's important because you gotta understand. That so much. So much disaster mitigation has been innovated here in California like the internet like the the incident command structure all that stuff comes about because of innovations in first response here in southern California here in San Diego up in Los Angeles, mass disaster responses because of the nature of the danger that we face because of earthquakes wildfires and all those associated challenges that come with it. We are really the innovative center of the of the world when it comes to responding to incident. Command responding to incidents through the incident command structure, and the ability that we are able to to deploy in response to that sort of stuff. Look remember last week. We were just talking about the Cleveland elementary massacre that happened forty years ago. And sadly, we've seen Cleveland elementary. We have seen what happened at the McDonalds and saying you Cedric we have seen the witch fire. We have seen any. Any number of of these sorts of incidents take place where first responders have to get on the scene. And in some cases, the first responders are are showing up and in the case of criminality in the case of a mass shooting incident. Now, the shots are still being fired. And you have to respond to that deal with that. And. We are blessed to have sort of a community of service. In and around our communities, and to have these these heroin people who are willing to put on the blue, and who are willing to put on the the bunker jackets for the for fire abatement, and to go into places that just average citizens wouldn't go, you know, it's not lost on me that we just came off this this Super Bowl and much of the last few seasons has been marred by players taking these saying that they thought that the cops were unjust. They thought the cops were oppressive. They've got the cops are all these things and yet time and time again in every in every arena. I can I challenge folks who have issues with law enforcement who do not like the cops. Or who think the cops are not doing a good job? Assuming you don't have a criminal record, and assuming you're you're a solid citizen and everything like that you reach out to law enforcement and find out about doing a ride along a couple of hours. I mean, actually ride with the ride with the men and women who patrol the streets and look at how they interact, and it's not just because you wanna go. You wanna go have a joy ride like live PD? Right. What does that does show called life PD where you watch the or you want to do an episode of coverage? That's what you want to see is the professionalism with which these men and women comport themselves often times when they're interacting with somebody who's going to be nasty or who's going to be aggressive or is gonna look to fight or want to kill somebody or do something like that. You see the professionalism, and it extends not just to our immediate first responders, but see BP ice are professional folks who are working helping to keep the airport safe people who are out there trying to keep keep us safe from international terrorist organizations. These men and women are very professional, and they're a tribute to the best that is us. So check it out. I'm going to be going up on Saturday. Give a speech back the badge USA dot com for more information, and they got the details and directions and all that sort of stuff where it's going to be. It's the Brentwood herbal show AM seven sixty talk and breaking news. Jim shaw. That's got headlines. What's going on? Jim President Trump will deliver the state of the union address tomorrow.

"november twenty eighteen" Discussed on All In with Chris Hayes
"Number three is an op-ed that he co authored in November twenty eighteen in. Which he praised Jeff Sessions as an outstanding attorney general by any measure, and now the fourth is this Email. So no matter what he says sitting at that table. We have these four writings one from some time ago, but that he has not disavowed. He had an opportunity to disavow it at the hearing. This the case for mass incarceration, he thinks for the time in which he was writing it that somehow it was appropriate, and then these three other writings, and we can't pretend that we don't know what these are. And I think that it's deeply troubling. This is someone who wants to head up the largest law enforcement agency in the world. There's there was kind of a subtext of using the hearing yesterday, which is that this is a guy who's more or less in the club, and is trusted because he is when he was the attorney general before he's not Whitaker. I think he's really benefiting. Frankly, I think this is brilliant move onto they've accidentally happened into which is that everyone's so desperate to get Whittaker out of there who has no business being the attorney general that it helps him do you? Do you agree with me that was sort of a weird subtext to the hearing? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, he comes in is somebody. Who'd been under George W Bush. He comes in with all of the background that one would want, right. He's certainly got the resume on paper. But once you start digging into it a little bit. I mean, you have to wonder about this guy that thirty page memo that he wrote that was a job application. He didn't even have the right obstruction of Justice statute in there. He didn't know what the standard was for corrupt. Intent. He started talking about the law on obstruction of Justice, which was just dead wrong in a couple of places. So you really have to wonder and he took full credit, by the way for writing that memo. He very explicitly said in his out his first statement, I wrote in research that entire memo. I mean if that was brought to me by a second year associate I would be shocked. Well, I got to say I also think that it should work against him actually that he was the former attorney general in that period because he seems not to have grown or learned. I mean, one of the things that was astonishing about his testimony about. Mass incarceration was that. He would not disavow I mean, almost everyone including those who voted for the nineteen Ninety-four crime Bill recognizes that the collateral consequences of that was not what they antiquated legislation. Ten legislature. Just the first step which he said, he disagrees with many elements of it..

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff on Vogel bomb and for nearly one hundred fifty years, the official weight of a kilogram was determined by a shiny. Cylinder of platinum locked away and a French vault. The kilogram like the meter and the second is one of these seven fundamental units of measurement also known as the international system of units or the metric system. The sl for short. These were first formalized in the eighteen seventy five treaty of the meter back. Then the best way to agree on the weight of a kilogram was to forge a single hunk of metal and debit, Legrand K and for more than a century all scientific scales were calibrated back to that one physical reference point with copies stored in a dozen countries. But even solid objects can change over time when Legrand K was weighed in the nineteen eighties. It was a couple of micrograms lighter meaning that all highly accurate scientific scales. Not like the one in your bathroom had to be recalibrated. And that's what nerds call a real pain in the mass. Luckily, a team of metrology was already on the case a metrology being the science of weights and measures. They were searching for a universal constant that will generate a fixed value for the kilogram. That's true now and will still be true a million years from now they already found such a physics fixed for the second which was redefined in nineteen sixty seven from its previous value of a fraction of a day. One eighty six thousand four hundred of a day to be precise to something much more confusing, but much more constant it takes nine billion one hundred ninety two million six hundred thirty one thousand seven hundred and seventy also nations of a special microwave beam to excite atoms of the isotope cesium one thirty three to a higher energy level since that number will never change. Unlike the exact length of a day that's your new second same for the meter instead of being defined as the length of a single meter long. Metal pole forged back in eighteen eighty nine. It was redefined in nineteen Eighty-three as the. Since light travels in a vacuum in a particular fraction of a second. One two hundred ninety nine million seven hundred ninety two thousand four hundred and fifty eighth of a second. It wasn't until twenty seventeen that scientists working at the US National Institute of standards, and technology and similar bodies worldwide. Finally, agreed on universal constant for the kilogram the achievement required solving one of the thorniest physics problems of the last century coming up with a numerical value for punks constant without getting too technical a physicist Max Planck proved in nineteen hundred that matter releases energy in discrete chunks called Quanta his equation for measuring. These packets of energy included, a constant called H hitherto known as planks constant thanks to I'm Stein. We know that energy and mass are mathematically related that whole E equals MC squared thing. So physicists figured out the plugs constant being fixed unit of energy could yield the world's most accurate measurement of mass calculating the exam. Value of plugs, constant took decades and some serious technological innovation specifically a nifty device called a Kibble balance. But they did that work, and we now know that punks constant is six point six two six zero seven one five zero times ten to the power of negative thirty four jewels per second. I mean, da in mid November twenty eighteen at the annual meeting of the international bureau of weights and measures in verse I France representatives for more than sixty countries voted to approve a new and ever lasting definition of the kilogram. As calculated by the Planck, constant no more hunk of metal the kilograms masses. Now tied to planks constant new definitions were also announced for sl units. The Ampere electrical current the Kelvin for temperature and the mole the number of molecules atoms in an element. These new definitions will take effect on may twentieth. Two thousand nineteen. The original platinum kilogram. Prototype will remain in that underground French vault while countless generations of scientists will make world. Changing discoveries using the kilogram two point.
