The Straw That Broke The Bucatini Supply Chain
"Today on the show. I am joined by planet money producer. Alexi horowitz ghazi and alexi. Hello first of all parody cardiff alexi. You've brought us a kind of pasta mystery. Not just any pasta. Cardiff dismissed all about a very particular. Pasta shape called bucatini. It's basically just spaghetti with a hole in it in. The story comes to us. By way of a self avowed bucatini fanatic new york magazine writer. rachel handler. When did you know that you were bucatini. Hat or bucatini bopper. Look what do we call ourselves. Ivan bucatini had because. I just think it's cute but i definitely didn't grow up in a bucatini household by any means we are definitely spaghetti. Family the mystery part of all of this began. When rachel started to notice last spring that her beloved bucatini seemed to be getting harder and harder to find at our local grocery stores in new york until eventually it seemed to be totally gone and then one day in the fall rachel was on the phone with her also pasta obsessed mother who lives in chicago and her mom kind of mentioned off hand that she was having the exact same problem. Racial literally haven't been able to find bucatini anywhere and she was talking specifically about to check out. The check is a one hundred and forty year old italian pasta company so when she said that i was like slow mo i was like because i thought it was like a new york problem like a very classic. Sort of like you know history. I can't find my bucatini. Whatever like who cares. But then i was a coli though. Sorry can i swear. Oh yeah okay okay. Great it's like holy if you can't find it that means that this is a real issue. And then she told me that she had actually reached out to the customer service department to check. Oh i just sent them an email. it's a classic move. It was like full of typos. Which is like a way. That mom's ready meals. But her email said i am a huge fan of bucatini pasta huge in all caps. I have not been able to find it for many weeks at any store. It is my favorite pasta cook than the sentences in all caps with four questionnaires. Are you still making it. Please tell me how to get some not too long afterwards. Rachel's mom gets a voicemail from a regional dicicco sales representative named brian. And then when. She played me voicemail from brian. I was like holy like this goes deep. There is a cover up like something weird is going on. Brian told rachel mom that she was likely having trouble. finding check. Oh bucatini. Because of an fda hiccup the hecker exactly for some reason the fda which is the food and drug administration seemed to have put a hold on the import of check. Obu katini and now. Brian was telling rachel's mom to sit tight and check the shelves a few months down the road and the fact that this little pasta mystery seemed to reach all the way to the federal government. That was something that had dogged. Journalists like rachel could not in good conscience. Look away from. This is the turning point for me. Yeah the next day. Rachel pitched the story to her editor but in the back of her mind. She wasn't sure it would go anywhere. And i'll just felt so big. And i think all of us figured nothing would really come event. At least i did. I was like i'm never going to figure out what's going on but began calling to check. Oh i reached out to like five or six different people. Email and phone call and voicemail and no one got back to me and then i was like something in santa's happening and i don't know and at that point i was like there's there's a story hammond

Winfrey served still point Yes we're going to continue this conversation about pandemic self care strategies and other care so welcome lynn. Thank you for having me terry. It's nice to see you again. Good to see now just catching up a little bit of what's happening in the us. In ohio my and what's happening in canada and your head right and in the same thing it is kind of the same thing and it's Like you were mentioning us one of these big events that And we'll look back gone so someone who's the teenager now is going to look back on it any many decades from now go remember what twenty. We didn't have any school graduate graduation. No prom right. Yeah yeah and all of us have our own personal history with our own personal experience that happening as well right and i know my son is having his children. Do daily daily journaling right now at chip just kind of collect their memories and and they would have to look back on and they're also doing daily meditation so a bit different curriculum than school. But it's still really really valuable to do. Yes we've not. Taking family walks together with the dogs and our daughter who's thirteen has been running. She took up writing again. She'd run track back in fourth grade or something runs ahead of us. We could see her that show she'll turn around and run back and Yeah it's good to see her up and moving and a lot more a lot more time playing me bowling together to to so tell me about what it is that you do so. They can have a sense of who are that. So i've being teaching meditation for twenty five years and yoga as well and i work with people healing trauma. So i do a mindfulness based inquiry practice the killaby inquiries and some of it is in groups. Some of it is individually When when i meet with somebody individually. We're really working on. What are the thoughts coming in images and the words and really what's happening in our body right and then i have a lot of classes as well right now. Ironically the march and april topics for my sunday morning classes is peaceful. Mind wasn't anything on my radar. When i said the topic at you know the what happens in our nervous system in our mind as we get our nervous system is charged up when we feel under threat and we are frayed and then we go into some kind of compensating. We go into fight fight where we get irritable and angry and sometimes we turn out against other people sometimes against ourselves or we go into denial like a deep freeze of. I can't handle this not happening. I'm just gonna go on business as usual and a lot of the things that we're seeing right now are actually fear responses. That maybe aren't the wisest thing we could do. So it's great that you're having this collection of people that are going. This is something we could do instead of convenience driven by nervous system. So that's what i'm you know. I do I help people with their mind So that they can come catastrophic thinking and and come back in their bodies and be you know where the bre. I do them morning. Meditations with Online so people can just have a break from what's going on in the mind commander. Relax the body. It's all guided so you don't have to think it through. I don't leave a lot of spare time there. So the mind doesn't have a lot of time to get going on a big stream thought. So it's just a lot of steph around right now are nervous. Systems are highly engaged in and frightened. And how can we really come ourselves. And there's a lot of ways to do that held about those of what are what are some calling strategies people can use you know one thing we could do is is just do a little practice of it to what is sorry. Lose many things that we can do with our physical body One of the things. James gordon is just wrote a beautiful call the transformation and he's being interviewed on nbc and sixty minutes and he does work with large populations that are traumatized like After hurricane a school shooting or protection thing and he gets people up shaking and also he does this soft e. breathing. I kind of tune in and then shaking so you stand and you shake through your legs and your hips and your arms shoulders. And he has people do like five hundred thousand people together
Ancient Dogs Had Complex Genetic Histories
"Dogs were the first animals to be domesticated stuck with us as we changed lifestyles from hunting gathering to farming to city living. The dog is a species that is intimately linked to hyun history. Anders bergstrom a post. Doc at the francis crick institute in london. He and his colleagues studied the genomes of twenty seven. Ancient dog bones dug up around the world. They found by eleven thousand years ago. We see the dog to start to diversify united kalihi so we find evidence of at least five major lineages of dogs already at this time. Dog remains have been found in europe asia in the americas in a pattern similar to help. Humans moved mixed to a large degree. The history of dogs dog seems have been shaped by human history. So like the reflecting. How what you must moved. They would have brought her dogs with them. Ancient humans clearly found dogs to be very useful in the arctic. Evidence at sled. Dogs actually emerged very early on people. Use them for the purpose of leading perhaps as early as ten thousand years ago. A few modern breeds like the african basenji new guinea singing dog or australian dingo are similar to one of the five ancient lineages most other modern breeds derived at least in part from european dogs which came to dominate dog genomes. Back for five thousand years ago. There's a great diversity of dogs in europe but at some point there was probably a single population that expanded in basically replaced other populations in europe. So this was something that we did not predict sunday. You couldn't really see just from studying. Archaeology look the dna with all this diversity. In the past that is not represented in present-day dogs. The study is in the journal. Science where you'll find maps of dog migrations over time one odd finding about eleven thousand years ago it looks like dogs. Spread more widely than humans did does actually opposes. We don't understand. So how could the dogs spread so quickly widely. We're we're not aware of any human migrations. At this time that could have facilitated this spread of the dog but some of it spreads very quickly to two human groups all across the world perhaps because he was a very useful thing for his early human together. The groups humans were also useful to dogs prehistoric. Petco didn't exist so dogs. Probably humans did and is human started to form oath species quickly adapted to digest more grains. The number of copies of a starch digesting gene in both humans and dogs increased in the generation following the invention of agriculture. Yes oh that. That's a very striking example of convergent evolution between humans. And dogs. way it's gonna be interesting to think of the dog. As kind of a evolutionary experiment that runs alongside human history and undergoes. Same lifestyle changes that we do
Counting US Research Rodents
"I this week. We have online news editor david graham. We're gonna talk about how many rodents rats and mice are used in. Us biomedical research each year. Hi dave here. When i first saw on the lineup i immediately sent you a guess. For how many rats and mice might be used by researchers every year. I was way off. What was your guest. it was eight million. Okay pay everyone listening you. Guess your own guests. I was way off. But the one clue so dave according to the study that we're going to be talking about today how many rats and mice are used or our house for biomedical research each year in the us. So according steady two hundred and eleven million. So i was way off. Were you surprised by this number. Kind of i mean the behind the study whose names larry carboni. He's at the university of california san francisco. Garri actually just left. There had written a book about fifteen years ago where he made a guest admit that was eighty to a hundred million so i heard a very high figure before but that is a lot higher than what other groups have estimated. The estimate tends to be around fifteen to twenty million. Why is this number mysterious. Why are people guessing or estimating how many of these animals are used in research. And this isn't something that we track greg. So there's something called the animal welfare act which is a federal law. That's been around for more than fifty years actually. Nbc wanted allows is the united states department of agriculture. Usda to go to my universities private companies any facility that has animals that are covered by that act usda goes in and inspect those animals for welfare counts them now. The problem is that there are only limited number of animals that are covered by that act that includes dogs cats rabbits monkeys but mice and rats and birds for the most part have always been excluded or mostly that excluded from that that means that the only agency that would go from especially as is counting. These animals is now counting mice rats. Nobody actually has any idea how many of these animals are being used in the us facilities. How does this value. Though this one hundred ten million or maybe the low value of twenty five million compare with those other lab animal populations that you're talking about rabbits cast dogs it's vastly more should matter who's number you believe. Everybody seems to agree that lab mice and rats makeup at least ninety three percent of all the mammals used by medical research so the total number all those other animals. I was talking about these animals that are covered by the welfare in the whole united states is about seven hundred
Doug Knust on using life to influence your book
"Doug welcome back. Once again, since this is focused for writers. Tell us a little bit about the software and the services that you used when you were writing a book. Well, I I happened upon a r e g just I'm not really sure I probably just did a search and found it and and I use that actually as the the writing tool because I was able to then publish in the in the in the different formats that I needed to pass it on to Amazon for the self-published to self-publishing really Kindle Direct publishing. I mentioned to you earlier. I used my my daughter-in-law was my editor. My son was my graphic artist. And the rest of it was kind of just you know, she was string stuff. Nothing fancy Steven dead. Okay nice, but that's great because you can make a good quality product. Even if you're not spending thousands of dollars exactly you do. I mean, you don't even need a word processor. It's all online if that's what the way you want to do it if you're familiar with if you're comfortable with a word processor or what are I'm sure that works just fine. But God, yeah, you you don't even need the word processor, right? So when you we were talking a little bit about marketing you mentioned your target audience and I loved that because I mentioned may also do middle grade fiction and it is difficult because you want to write a book and you want to give it to the seventh and eighth graders, but they are not the ones buying it. The parents are the ones buying it and the teachers the and you mentioned grandparents that you get a lot grandparents. So what are you doing to try and reach that audience? I've had I've had pretty good success targeting grandparents on Facebook. And I you know being a being a car dealer and I'm doing a little marketing doing a little marketing. I have I I know that that demographic uses Facebook and especially, you know, the last six weeks during the Christmas season that was that was really surprisingly successful for me. I've used some of the Amazon ads kind of targeting some books that had the same subject matter had some reasonable success there as well. And then you know, I I've given a choice of books. I put a little card in there asking people to go online and and give me a review and to recommend it and you know, it's the word of mouth is still a pretty dog. Good way to advertise. Yes. And so I take it even though you were on Amazon that you actually probably sell quite a few printed books. Yeah, the vast majority of my books are printed of the sales are printed books and I think again when you think about the the target end reader off the 6th seventh and eighth grade boy, not many of them are running around with an electronic reader. Most of them are if they're going to read it. I think they're going to read the whole paper version of the book agreed.

"Pandemic" Pet Adoption - Always Great No Matter When It Happens
"I was in a new apartment in a new city after just having broken up with a partner of ten years. I didn't leave my home. I had very little outside contact with anybody. Virtual or otherwise. I was all alone for the first time a very long time. I became even more introvert than i'd ever been before. Feeling sadness sorrow and kind of use on a daily basis. Let me just say that. I am inherently a cat person. But i was compelled to do everything the opposite way of. How about my life up until that point. The all quote. Nothing is working this way. So i'll do it the opposite and see what happens. It can't get much worse in quote. That was my line and my way of thinking at that time. We'll in october of two thousand eighteen. My precious cat when he had just passed away. It was very sad. And so i thought briefly about waiting on getting another pet altogether. Maybe i'll just wait. It was just so painful to imagine going through the worry and commitment. And plus i had just start to travel a little bit more but somehow i didn't dismiss it as the weeks went by. I saw an ad on pet finder dot com for a dog named frank and the ad it stayed that frank was quote body sensitive in quote in other words he was a biter. But guess what that did not deter me. As i read the ad i learnt that he had been in a few bad homes been rejected and returned to the shelter. But the ad also said that wants the bonding phase was established. He'd be a companion for life. I was intrigued as ended up. I wouldn't be all alone for the rest of my life. Like i thought i would. Happy ending for franken me for sure. But here's another pet story. That's just as cool on. Us news and world report. I found this doctor. Liz dare a family medicine. Physician in western massachusetts had wanted to adopt a dog but she hadn't quite found the right time to do it with work travel and other commitments. They're just never seemed to be a great time to adopt a pet and her two cats kept her company. Well enough with fewer knees dog. And isn't that the truth. But in mid-march the world changed when the coronavirus pandemic was declared overnight workplaces closed and like many other people. Liz began working from home. A lot offering visits with patients. Virtually from their homes. Having a dog would help stave off some of the isolation that accompanied the radical change and it is radical in lifestyle so many of us have had to cope with since the coronavirus pandemic began. She says i'm single. And i live by myself so it felt like a really right time for me. Well according to its july seventeenth twenty twenty covid nineteen impact report. The number of dogs and cat adoptions. Were actually down. Twenty seven percent when compared to the same time period a year ago. but foster's were up nine percent. Many states have seen a significant decline in the number of animals. Entering the shelters as volunteers observed stay at home orders but the increase and fosters suggests that more people are willing to take on sick or older pets that might otherwise not have found a safe home to call their own for any period of time because this is an ever changing situation and each shelter faces unique challenges adoption and fostering statistics will vary at any given time. It's so obvious. But there's no doubt that the response from community residents across the nation to support their local shelters by fostering vulnerable animals has been enormous and unprecedented. And isn't that the coolest thing well for liz. The rush to adopt meant. She had to be patient to find her pandemic pet orla name eventually. She connected with a shelter and connecticut right here where i am that brings dogs up from the southern united states. So that's how. She found sophie a two year. Old thirty pound terrier boxer mix. She's chestnut brown with white around her face and white paws and she's got spots running down her chest. She sounds adorable and she is and sweet and she's a very low key dog. I needed to find a dog. She says that was going to get along well with my two cats and as it turns out. Sophia's very good around the cats. Who are still a little freaked out by her. Well let me just tell. This story has a great ending to. She brought sophie home of month ago. They're still adjusting to the new routine. She's totally fallen in love with this dog. So after those two stories. My story about frank and liz's story about sophie. Do you even need to hear the bullet point benefits for adopting a pet. No well here. They are anyway well. They offer companionship. We know that this is important. If like myself you live alone before. I adopted frank who is a dachshund maltese mixed breed. I had no one to look forward to seeing no one to share my love with and no one that needed me and there is something to be said about the human to dog touch. That feels so good. Well provides a purpose to the sense of purpose. Everybody needs pet. Ownership is an important responsibility and one that can be a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. There are more opportunities for exercise to well this time to walk. Frank during the lockdown played an important role in my wellbeing and his two dogs need to be walked and katz needs to be played with and there is no doubt that these activities with your pet is crucial to your physical wellbeing. as well. as there's getting dose of fresh air is important for both of you. Also it provides a reason to go outside smelled air and be alone with your thoughts. That's right. I said alone because when you're outside there's so much to see and you're using all your senses of very good thing and there's good medical news two that's right. Having a pet can reduce blood pressure the center for disease control and prevention the cdc reports that pet ownership can be a key to reducing stress cholesterol and triglycerides levels. All things that we need to do to be healthy and you know what there doesn't even have to be at pandemic for you to adopt a pet but you can't anyway. It's a good excuse if you need one. If you need a laugh live alone. Want to potentially meet other like-minded pet owners be more peaceful and happier and calmer. This is something to really consider. I know you know this. It's not only you but that furry pet that just may need you as much as you need them. Still a cat person. But i adore my frankie.

"o. dog" Discussed on Invention
"B. Y. G. E. DOT com. All right. We're back all right. I think we should talk a bit about The the legacy of the turn spit dog in English literature because references to them show up in English literature. Roughly from like the fifteen hundreds when the turns bit dog I became popular a Roughly to the eighteen hundreds kind of cuts off after in the twentieth century. And it makes sense right because if the especially in Britain if this was something that was to be found in pretty much every household or a lot of households anyway it would be a common frame there would be a common frame of reference it would be a combination impress a metaphor for are expressing. Something about the human condition and so it might not surprise you that since it goes back to the fifteen hundreds it shows up in Shakespeare in Shakespeare's comedy of errors Dromey O of Syracuse. Says I amazed ran from her as a witch and I think if my breast had not been made of faith in my heart of steel she had transformed to me into occur tale dog and made me turn the wheel So curtail dog there Refers I think to the docking of the tail in curtail cutoff. And that seems to have something to do with the social class or status or value of the dogs like the Led the more valuable breeds that that would would have belonged to rich people. I think were more likely to have the full tale whereas the tail was curtailed in breeds that were maybe for working like in the the kitchen. That's where we get the word curtail. Yes Oh my goodness all right. I am all sorts of discoveries are taking place for this topic. Well actually I want to go back. I'm not sure that's where we get. The word word. Curtail that means cut short like. Yeah but let's just say that is where he is But by Brian Cummings account usually a curtail dog in Shakespearean Syrian references is a reference to turn spit dog. There's another quote in the merry wives of Windsor quote. Hope is a colonel dog in some affairs and Cummins links this to who the futility of hope in some cases like to the futility of the work in the turns bit will just goes on and on another one is that some authors have even alleged that the saying every dog has its day comes from the turn. Spit Dog I think this is not proven. Can't find strong evidence linking the saying to the roasting spit spit but The the ideas that since many kitchens would have two dogs in some cases they would trade off every other day. So you'd have a day where you work in the wheel and then you'd have a day of rest and from what I can tell this. English expression does probably show up during the Tudor period in the fifteen hundreds which is also the time wind turns bit dog. Dog Wheels became common in England again. I can't prove that's where the phrase comes from interesting. Yeah it's like there's this handy example of of of cruelty right every household and of course it makes its way into language ordering in or in this case potentially yeah. Unfortunately it's like every reference to it in English literature is to the fact that it is wretched work that it's something you don't want to have to do that. It's hard that it can be cruel in fact even not just Not just hard-working cruel but SISYPHEAN literally because Bond US and also quotes a quote. A rare collection of poems entitled Norfolk. Draw lary. And here's the quote. This I confess he goes around around one hundred times and never touches ground and in the middle circle of the air. He draws a circle circle LAK- conjurer with eagerness he still does forward tend like Sisyphus whose journey has no end. This of course is the the what the Titan that is is Punished by having to push the rock up the hill and then it rolls back down. Yeah I I don't know visit Titan. You're probably right okay. But in Greek mythology and having to push the boulder up the hill the only to have it rolled back down again every time. Somebody who who ticked off a God right. But that's interesting because then while mythologies usually the handy metaphor to turn to it's like for this period of time You had replaced sophisticated replace myth because you had the real life sisyphus installed in your home. That's the epic struggle that everybody they can relate to because they've seen one of these kitchen And it turns out. We mentioned this earlier but there were other similar dog powered machines in human history for some reason always especially in Wales. I don't know why Wales and western England seemed like the epicenter for dog powered machines so yeah dog powered in butter. Churns dog powered fruit presses dog powered green wheels even water wheels to draw water up from a well and then later I was reading about how in England and in the United States there were few examples of dog powered printing presses. Oh wow I mean it really sounds almost getting into the room of dog punk. Uh well that could be a great like whole family. Plus Dog Halloween costume as some kind of dog punk outfit. I actually did so much to do. Yes you have a scenario where it's like a dog punk world but of course the dogs are heroes and they of course escape and rebel so sort of dog punk meets rats of nimh basically correct itself. Yeah So we talked before about the question of whether the turn spit dog was actually a breed of dog. There's been a lot of speculation about which dog dog breeds most resemble or most closely related to the turn spit dog According to bond the DACHSHUND and the Basset Hound have been proposed but Johnson thinks these are bad candidates. Maybe better candidates for relations are the Glenn of Emol terrier which greatly resembles historical reports of the turns bit dogs though has more terrier like head and this was this was also a dog that was definitely used to hunt vermin. Yes so we're getting into that area to to where perhaps this is a dog that had a dual rule like we have these rat catcher dogs. I need something to turn this wheel. Go grab one of those. Catch dogs throwing the wheel. Yeah I think that's highly plausible possible especially early on and maybe they were bred more for wheel duties as time went on another bit Better candidate also is. Apparently the Welsh Corgi the corgis which she's ironic because Of the famous Welsh Corgi Corgis. Who are royal companions at the castles of the British monarchy which might sort of fit with the story of the nineteenth century? Queen Victoria taking interns. Bit Dogs as pets. Oh I mean because perhaps you end up with another selective breeding situation. The cutest of the turns bit dogs are taken in by the Queen. And you get you get corgis. I can see it though. I don't know how far back Corgis go actually match up with the the corgi lineage emperor. Perhaps we'll hear from corky breeders right so Cummins ultimately argues that given all of the disparate reports about size appearance coat and so forth the turns bit dog In his mind probably was not a distinct breed of dog but rather was any small dog that could be trained to turn the wheel though he believes as they were mostly derived from terrier breeds. So we've got these different. I think it's not fully settled. Whether the turns bit dog was a breed of dog or was in the knee large part may be sort of a breed of dog or just was was a class of types of dogs. Yeah like we might be in that area where it was on its way in some regions towards becoming coming amrried but ultimately and thankfully the practice does go away. There is one known taxidermied. Turns bit dog at the Abergavenny Avenue Museum in Wales. It's named Whiskey have included a picture for you all get here Robert. I mean it's a small dog with short kind of been crooked legs and it is a cute. The dog could see a dog like this. You know earning its way out of the wheel and into the hearts of a queen. Now be writes that turns bit dogs. Dogs were used in America in the nineteenth century. And you had an animal rights advocate by the name of Henry Bergh who lobbied against there use any ultimately succeeded in bringing some shame the practice but with limited consequences. Yeah there were there were at least some cases where he like identified turns bit dogs that were being being used in some cities as like as where there was obvious cruelty any like took the people who were who own the dogs to court. Yeah and he would make surprise visits. It's in kitchens to catch the dogs and their use and reportedly It'd be writes. In some cases. They found that the dogs have been replaced by young black children. This horrible horrible Cummins writes about that too that in some cases when the dogs were removed That human children were used in the role especially black children and that Berg tried to To advocate on behalf of the children who were put through this cruelty to in some cases arguing that like will children not be given the same rights as an animal. Yeah thankfully however ver- you know even though we we started with children and then dogs into the picture then Giessen and the picture thankfully going back to children is not the change that ultimately somebody brought the end of the term spit doc right just as dogs replaced. Some human turn spits early. On automotive power ultimately replaced the majority of dogs And and it started not the majority but it started somewhat as early as the sixteenth century. And would just go on to replace dogs more and more for spit a bit turning as time went on. So bonding writes that Leonardo Da Vinci of course invented an automatic turning device. That was called a smoke jack and it worked. Sort the principle of a windmill except inside chimney so smoke and hot air rising from the fireplace up into the chimney would rotate a turbine with several blades and then the turbine driven by the smoke in the rising gases would generate rotational energy. That can be transferred by belt or chain to the roasting spit bit. Yeah it's a clever clever invention would later see. Some use. One of the drawbacks to it of course is that you do have to. You have to feed a lot of fuel to the fire. You have to keep the fire up. You have to keep that updraft powerful enough to turn the machinery. Yeah there were several problems with the smoke Jack Model. The it was improved upon incrementally in later decades after DAVINCI's invention of it Bonds and notes that records indicate smoke. Jacks were in use in England during the time of Samuel peeps who was an English naval administrator Raider and prolific dire journals. Give us a window into much about what English life was like at the time which was like sixteen thirty three to seventeen o three but even even these later improved models of smoke. Jacks were still dirty. They were unreliable and yeah they required a very hot fire and a lot of you know putting awful so a lot of fuel essentially actually to get them spinning at the right rate but even with those limitations they could do the work of a lot of dogs. Bond US writes quote in the early nineteenth century. Luther Castle Castle near Penrith had a particularly advanced smoke. Jack drew driving eight horizontal and four vertical spits saving the Labor of not less than twelve turns earns bit dogs but another automated solution and I think the one that ultimately really replaced turns. Bit Dogs was also in existence by the sixteenth century. And this was the clock. Jack sometimes called the the meat. Jack had other names as well. Yeah the clock. Jacks used a suspended weight or spring. That you would wind up at the beginning of the cooking process to store potential energy that would slowly be released with a steady rotation mechanism and it worked much much better than any of the other known methods. Yeah basically consisted of a weight suspended from accord and wound around a cylinder..
"o. dog" Discussed on Invention
"Hey Welcome to invention. My name is Robert Land and I'm Joe McCormack and today we are continuing our trek through Acumen techno history. And we're going to begin with the Flint's okay if you've ever watched the flintstones the old Nineteen sixties American cartoon. You're probably familiar Eh. There over the top cartoon world in which you have you have these cavemen. But they're also it's also like a commentary to a limited extent on nineteen sixties American in culture and they live alongside dinosaurs and they utilize them to power pretty much every aspect of their society. Is the satirical element there. If I've only seen seen the Flintstones Viva Rock Vegas probably I think so. Because they I if I remember correctly those live action. Adaptations did put a lot of emphasis on the dinosaurs and prehistoric creature based technology. Oh yeah clearly. That's the big draw. The series is the curiosity. What kind of dinosaur is going to be playing the role of toilet today today? Yeah because they didn't use dynasty power everything For instance they did insist on putting their own ridiculous stone. Cars around town love that They had a typewriter that was a mere stone machine. Kind of like a cross between a typewriter in a stone xylophone or something but They also used used. Of course. That would be. What is it a Litho phone actually? It's not a there is a name for a stone xylophone But but it was more complicated ridiculously complicated In the flintstones what stones but they also use just to name a few inventions the following a little less. Go back and forth in these okay. A sorrow pod powered construction direction crane device a stegosaur based fire truck theropod based mobile stairs so like The airport yeah. Yeah okay a small dinosaur that they I used a can opener This is really famous and I know they use this one in the live action film Garbage Disposal Dinosaur. That just lives underneath a counter. I remember this actually. They're like the garbage disposals acting up and he opens up the cabinets and like yells Atta. Yeah but they've also got a record player. That's a turtle and Hummingbird Hummingbird is the needle of course in the neural somehow. Spinning the record. Wait a minute. We're there hummingbirds and wait a minute. This is ridiculous questions questions. Were definitely not humans coexisting with dinosaurs. They had a mammoth based system of running water. Didn't they also have a tiny mammoth that it was like the vacuum cleaner. They used the hose. Maybe it's young. I don't know how this worked There is also A. I'm not sure it was a bird or terrastar based camera mariah. So he like you hold up the camera to take the picture and the small winged creature uses its beak to then a chisel the image into a piece of stone. That's funny that some kind of bird a dishwasher. It was like a Pelican. Yeah looked a lot like a Pelican and then of course if you need a kitchen knife what are you gonNa do use the sawfish. Why not Iraq like a Flintstone? It's there in the name. The lint the hilarious if it is an actual swordfish but then defeats the purpose. I mean why you you would use an animal in place of machine is that an animal is complex and has moving parts and can generate motive power. If you just need a knife or something thing it seems like Real Stone Age technology would work just as well oh absolutely and then of course. There's the the added fact that they have a pet dinosaur named dino who is. He's just there for companionship. Now all of this is ridiculous and even today we watched it and we laugh at it because it's ridiculous exaggeration of Animal Labor each dinosaur star creatures highly specialized so either humans of the flintstones just found the right animals to perform these very specific specific functions or like us real life humans they bred them to encourage certain traits traits that would make them ideal for highly specific specialized specialized tasks such as living under your sink in eating all your scraps. That's right and to explore this concept further today we're going to look at a real historical for example Certainly not the only example of an animal bred for a certain job within the house a pre providing some kind of motive power of course we know farm animals draft draft animals. Pack animals have been doing this kind of thing for Millennia. But today we're going to be looking at a very strange specific case from history the turn spit dog. A breed of domestic dog that is bred to run around a small wheel to power rotisserie. Yes and this is this. This is amazing. I was I had not heard of this before. So this was like suddenly suddenly realizing the flintstones unreal to a certain extent but this is going to be a great episode as well. Because it's not. I'm just going to be about this dog. It's going to be about sort of two or three additional technologies that factor in to this period in time in which dog dog Labor was used to help cook big chunks of meat right so I guess I we always ask the question here. What came before this invention so obviously we should look at the dog itself and the dog in a way if he started? If you sort squint it is sort of a human invention I mean. Obviously it's a product of nature so we like we didn't create you know. Canine generally but the domestic dog and domestic dog breeds that exist have in many ways been guided by human when hands to greater and lesser extents. Yeah I mean it's not you know not necessarily a situation where a prehistoric member of human society Said said. That is a good wolf creature out there. I have a few pointers for what we might change in it but that is essentially the process ends up taking place so yes before you you can have a dog powered meet spinning grill machine. You have to have a domestic dog. In brief. The domestic dog dates back an estimated twelve thousand house in years to the Near East before the cat before the sheep before the goat and before the horse the dog may be man's best friend and it is certainly one of his oldest non human friends. It is the oldest recognizably domestic animal. And we know they were used Some eleven thousand years years ago in post glacial Europe by Hunter Gatherers and they were almost certainly used in hunting. Interestingly enough it sometimes questioned why humans didn't actually Louis domesticate. The dog sooner than this one idea is that there was even more incentive to domesticate these the wild wolf like creatures into into the domesticated dog in the post glacial world because you increasingly then had to track wounded animals. That you've wounded during the you know the the the hunt through wooded regions increasingly wooded regions the forest return and a dog superior sense of smell could make a huge difference in that task so the dog was a pre reforming domestic species. And that's something that's really essential to note because the cat. I think we've touched on this before. Not An invention that stuff to blow your mind you know. The cat comes about as a domesticated species in the post farming world because of the post farming surplus of food right so in the in the post farming world you might have a stores of grain or or other foods in the settled location. They're not moving around from. And those might attract to say rats or something like that they would get into your grain and then the cat can follow the rats right and in these areas other species many of them of course our food species that we domesticated so in so as to control them and not have to hunt them anymore they live with us and we kill them when we desire to kill but of course as great as dogs can be continued to be in the in aiding the hunt. We we know that they can be bred to specialize in a number of key tasks. And I'd have a shortlist here that I thought we might go back and forth on again much like we did with the dinosaurs of the flintstones. Okay so you can of course breed a dog over mini generations to fetch Feld foul. That's kind of a tongue twister. But yeah you see maybe you shoot down a bird. You don't know exactly where it went but the dog can find it. Essentially the dog is still aiding in the hunt but it's the more specialized version of aiding in the hunt. Now the other thing would be playing playing more of a role we think of With cats these days a ridding the home area or the food storage areas of rats and other vermin right Another one is is to aid in fishing specifically in this one of the breezy this with the Newfoundland dog which is a Labrador retriever. A Labrador retriever. Fetches tailed foul but the traditionally but the Newfoundland dog is there to retrieve floats in ropes from dangerous icy waters. No of course. We you see lots of shepherding dogs in world traditions that they can help control the movements and direction of flux. Right a big scary dog with a loud bark has long been used and and is still used to as as protection needed protecting individual or to protect property. Yeah and I guess this would be a part of a bigger. The thing is just sort of like using dogs for violence or the threat of violence of dogs used in war fighting were in combat dogs. Unfortunately sometimes times dogs you use to fight each other. Yeah purely for sport which is terrible Or in other equally egregious kinds of bear bait execs. Yeah another area though that is is not dark or not not intrinsically dark is tracking because dogs may dogs could be used to track somebody the or something for nefarious reasons. Certainly but dogs can be used to track. People say to find say find individuals who've been buried in an avalanche that sort of thing right and then of course you've got the the final version the version that many of us today probably know the best which is just pure companionship. Dogs are a good friend. Good Buddy and this is where we get the the final form of the dog the pug right but while we often think of other animals like horses donkeys cattle and stuff like this a clearly As draft animals animals that are used to pull loads or as pack animals animals that are used to carry loads animals that are there to provide motive power. We don't often think of the dog this way and yet nevertheless the dog has been used for these purposes in many ways around the world all throughout history. Yeah and one. All of those ways is what we're going to talk about today. Pairing dogs for motive power with a specific type of cooking technology. which is the turn? Spit the practice axis abusing a dog to turn a wheel like a hamster wheel to turn a rotisserie in a kitchen right. I mean before we really started researching this the only example example that would have come to mind would be sled dogs where the dog is used for locomotion to pull a sled across snow. Yeah I mean there there are plenty of examples of people using dogs to To pull whole carts and things like that and there are other carry a pack. Yes yes exactly. But later in the episode we'll also talk about other types of more treadmill base motive power that come from dogs another important thing to note when we're talking about all these different Things that dogs have been bred for. And and this is. This is one of those sort of overstatements Mitsui obvious but the the role changes the form of dog. So like when we were talking about these dogs were bred to You know to catch rats and to chase vermin. Were often dealing with dogs. That are that are small in stature and they can change the rat into its hiding places likewise likewise the dogs that are used for tracking and in many cases involving the hunt as well Are often some of the absolute best sellers inner. Just you know the the ideal for tracking and in all of this to we get into the problem of the modern world. Sometimes where someone will have a purebred dog a dog that has been whose evolution solution has been hijacked to for this specific function and then it finds itself a pet without a without necessarily having an avenue for that that special power that it has been given through selective breeding go. I mean a lot of times..

There's getting to the badgers den not even necessarily begin to the den. But hey, it doesn't hurt because badgers defense against dogs is that it will flip on its back in his regime razor sharp claws and Claude a dog stomach. But it can't get under Dodson because they have such short legs. I don't think I'd be able to pick a badger out of a lineup of other. I think you'd know one. If you saw it, I don't know. But that's also why a few things with the Dawson's. Why they have long floppy ears. It's to protect from dirt going in when they're in the badger hole. I'd like to have long slept. Here's to predict dirt from getting into your. I'm going into badger hills. Is it has like like ginger real loose skin? That's another thing because when they're going in the holes shoulder blades. If they're going in the holes like routes and stuff like get caught like their ski get caught on that. And yeah, rip calls a cut. So they've loose skin to kind of mitigate that. And the way that you put it at your, Doug. It's to be you know, how ginger has really loose skin. Like, you're explaining this to a five year old. And like, you know, how ginger tail curls up at the. That is so when they were in the badger holes and they had to pull him back out. They could grab them by the tail and as yank him out. Says are a few the reasons why datsuns are so weird badgers. Yeah. They're they're often cited as the most aggressive dog breed. I've had weirdos. I in the street. Tell me that like often. Yeah. It was like all right cool. I dunno. My dog's not very aggressive have like when somebody has a real cute dug in their walk in the dog in New York City. Yeah.

Of course, of course, stranger. Let me give you smile. I've noticed a law. I guess it's not a lot on the books anywhere rule though. Maybe maybe it's just an observation. But it's ironclad. When I'm walking my dog, the more human like. The closed. The dog is wearing. The meaner the dog's going to be like the like if I see a dog walk into it's me and my dog and it's wearing like a bomber jacket. It's like, oh or like a two two or some. It's like, oh guaranteed that dog's going to go after my it's gonna start barking like crazy back. Sorry. It doesn't like other dogs.

But a golden retriever like I could see if you had a volleyball court in. Yeah. Had the dog on one side and me on the other. And I throw a ball over the dog would would instinctually, you know, pounds it back to me. So those are the dogs. I don't know if it gets spike volleyball. That's where I'll agree with this reviewer. Depends on how the net is he's biking with this Paul no with his face. Again, I think that's against the rules. Can I go through my stinkers list real? These are dogs that are no good.

He would watch that show all the time. And then every once in a while we loved the TV show. Yeah. It's just not true. You're no, I'm telling his dog would sit and watch TV. And then like when you know TIMMY, would fall in a well, or whatever and Lassie would get all upset and start barking. My dog would bark like I think this was like the equivalent of like blues clues to my dog. It was like, you know, Lassie was saying something like help me explain to this person Timmy's in the well, and the dogs would bark. And then my dog every once in a while, we get the bright idea like. I don't think this is gonna work. I had to try it and run around behind the TV to last. Last year was not maybe I stupid stupid shit remembered it from last time, I know, I know I know. Hey, it was worth a shot. And then he would go back to watching Lassie his favorite movie, though was the movie bear good movie. Yeah. He's movie he will let Doug no the pokey would've loved to see bear in the movie theater. But you know, fortunately, it was not allowed these days. You can bring a dog anywhere but airplane for crisis would sit down and just wash movie like front end, just sit and watch the whole movie it was like a little bit annoying because sometimes they go ver this movie. But he would he put it on. But like, yeah, you'd be flicking around the channels and we'd come on. Oh, he would be though, I somebody else in my family. And then like, you know, he would basically there. Now, just by like running over and seeing the TV is watching the movie, we can't change move. I mean, the thing is like, you're a bigger pushover.

Tom is the original Doug actually passed away after the first? Well, I mean that is not relevant to the review the film. You goes on to say these movies are great for little kids. If somebody posted like a review of the latest Batman movie, and there were like the original man that played Batman as actually passed away. I think I think it's a snappy headline. Really grabs the imagination. These movies are great for little kids. But I think they should have stopped after the first one because the original air bud passed away of cancer in the leg. After the first movie came out. I mean is he being so specific to imply somehow that the movies caused the cancer? I am surprised that they actually had a sequel let alone a third one. I like the Doug. But come on. They're showing things that are impossible kids, watch these movies. What does this teach who before I know somebody they said these movies crate for little kids?

These are no particular order number one who. Number one. I mean, he only had that one appearance. No particular order. I said, oh, then why are you numbering them just keep myself organized? I mean, you reading off a list the The same same name. name. I'll let you know. From Turner who j- he fought crime with Tom Hanks? He was a hero. I I wasn't a fan of the drool think they went to the drool bit a little too much. Have you ever seen like ever been around like a real drooling dog, though thing it's you know, who just off the top Doug's list? He's a French master from number one is to awfulness another one. I guess he's are all honorable mention wishbone. Okay. He was like a Jack Russell. Yeah. Traveled throughout history. I think he's very cute. I've been trying to. Adopt a dog that looks like wishbone. For number of years, but they don't come up that often on the adoption sites. Could he talk? Think it was like Garfield situation. Yeah. Marmaduke makes list. Yeah. I think you kind of had a voice like like like detective almost that doesn't sound very like somebody would say something. Maybe like I knew they were lying to me. I've never seen this cool new. I'm gonna get out of here. Yeah. Yeah. I think you're right. Who the hell knows? Marmaduke more, right? Big didn't talk pushes around that. Couldn't talk worth our family. Cuc? You think more reduce sleeping with his wife? Now, I think he's just a pushover. Still helpful helpless against Marmaduke. Well, marva chair. Now, it's not my chair. Family respects, my whole, thanks giving Turkey Marmaduke did he have a very attractive way for him. I think in a Blondie they all head very attractive. Walk woods. Lock horne. Lock horns, Tom. Airbud doug. He was a golden retriever that could play sports. I also heard he was a golden receiver, Tom. He was a airbud. It's the first movie. Yeah. Played basketball. And you thought like, oh, that's what the air is alluding to like Air, Jordan. But it was like now much like Michael Jordan could play two sports if he was in a gambling controversy. So it was that way air bud played a different sport. Yeah. Yeah. It was it was it was really really kinda tragic. Was forced into retirement? And so he he became a golden receiver and. American football. But then they they discovered the very next year. I think now two years later in air bud world pup he could play soccer as well. Which it seems like the least amount of stretch for place is worth like most dogs, not at a professional level, surely. But like, you know, you most soccer ball, they'll do something with it back. They'd probably be good at headers. Yeah. But I guess that's what he did an earbud won the basketball, which I don't think you're allowed to do in the NBA. Who knows you didn't play in the NBA for crisis?.

So it'd be like somebody having like a a real friendly friend, and it's like, oh, okay. Well, I feel a little safer that this person's I complete, you know, right? You real killer. His also this friendly guy hang out with them. But the thing is, you know, friendly dog he'd be a serial killer and have a golden retriever. The golden retrievers still going to be real friendly.

Just belongs to this Marmaduke that you've brought into your house for some perverse reason. Yeah. Well, and like, yeah. Doug can take up eighty percent of the space in still be cramped unhappy. Anyway, weird us have them have a great Dane in in the in the New York City. They're cool dogs like I would love to have one out in the country. I would like to have like a house in the country with just like a ton of dogs like thirty dogs that would actually be maybe not thirty dogs. That's a lot to take care of. Speaking of which do you know what the biggest dog ever recorded was. The say Marmaduke. Well, it was the dog in the sand. The biggest nonfiction dog. That would based on a true story. It wasn't a Marmaduke or the sandlot. Take a guess it wasn't what? What breed? Do you want me to tell you to breathe? What was Beethoven? That was a what should McCall it? He was pretty big Saint Bernard. Yeah. Beethoven no English in English mastiff. Okay. I know this isn't that pretty much a great Dane, I think so similar breed. If not the guy who knows Doug breeds me. Neither really like I know a few. But then like things like that where it's like, oh that's the same as that. And you sure, okay.

It was it was that rare that you'd have a mind meld with your Doug. I do it every day before. Something eat my pill for lunch that pucker tells me. He says good more big friend. The term dog days of summer was coined by the ancient Greeks and Romans to describe the hottest days of summer coincided with the rising of the dog star Sirius which is the planet. Banned the planet that the dogs are from. Serious. I am. These are the facts that you were you've collected. What the Doug days because serious and the Doug star. Yeah. Okay. It's just a boring thing. The oldest dog on record was an Australian cattle dog boy bet he will like to see that cow. They with he died and gone to heaven even those oldest dog. Guess how long this dog lived? I know you're just going to say. I don't know. Why even have two cats say something insane? All right. What is the average lifespan of Doug? Do you have your notes? I don't but I would say on average probably like twelve years. Okay. I'm going to say this. This dog went all the way lap them live twenty five years twenty nine years and five months. Well, that's in human years that's more than one hundred six years old. So that's where your math breaks down to him because no humans ever lived that long. Why would my math break down because you're saying dog year? It is an outlier. Yes. But then you would think that there would also be a human outlier at least one that's like. Guy remote regions of the world, Tom. You know, what people are like, oh, they're tells in the bible of like. That's not what I said. Yeah. Not say the bible. I cited the bible for and cats. Doug earlier, right? But now, you know, you don't know in these these remote they have no contact with other civilizations. You know, what's going on? There could have been a guy that lived to one hundred sixty there. I don't buy like whenever like in these remote parts like, oh, it's remote parts. So it's like, you know, you fall down the stairs. While you probably don't have stairs. If you're living like crazy remote region. You fall in your dead. Why why? 'cause like people can die very easily all the time. But we from falling. Yeah. Nobody's around. They fall in a pit. But what if they don't fall in the pit, then maybe they could live that long. But I'm just saying, you know, the older live the better. The odds are gonna fall somewhere. Maybe there's one guy that we don't know of that beat those pit. Falls literally. And speaking of pits. The best to reportedly attract a date is a golden retriever in the worst a pit bull. I don't believe the golden retriever. No, no. They're too big. People like a a medium sized dog small a large version of a small one. I mean, I guess. Trying to. No. Oh god. No, no. That makes sense. Because the thing about like, what's the friendliest type of dog? It's a golden retriever. That's true. Right. Yeah. I'm tom. I love golden retrievers. Yeah. One named Duffy for very long Talia live to thirty years old. Then for two very remote region. So it can be verified. No. That makes sense. I read another.

That's the first fact that's a boring fact there the first animal that was domesticated by people Kanus. Lupus knows dogs dogs are the first animal that were divaesque by people to mount no where you read that dog soda wolves. Yeah. There were wolves that were like hanging around. And then, you know.

That's how you get those bloody Boogers though, you might be onto something. But you're right like most normal traditional thanksgiving sides are vegetables like turkeys, only meet it's not like most people have like Turkey with a side of bacon and a plate of hamburgers. Everything else is usually vegetables something's might have bacon in them. But avoid those things. Yeah. And it was a lot of older people. So that any two for either just like do you need a tofu Turkey, and they think is like tofu just a funny word because like it's a word. They recently learned right old, folks. Have you ever had to folks? Let's stop teaching them. New words. I mean, it sounds like the they'll nobody Tom to for have you ever had to Furby. No, what is curious what tofu that they like roast?
