"Was brought to the united states by George angel who's the founder of the massachusetts. Spca he called the tom's cabin of the horse. You know so again. Another link to the anti-slavery idea and this was especially the case for women particularly involved in education they would create clubs. Abandoned mercy clubs. They called go into public schools in and talk to students they targeted boys but girls were also involved in this process. They would read kind of literature. You're talking about they will take a pledge They would gather in raise money in to help fares to try to raise money to support the movement but the real leaders of this movement felt like if we can raise a generation of kind boys especially. We'll bring world peace. You know if we can if we can get them young enough. Of course that was that even its own way but it was certainly an important part of the movement i think too. I think that tradition has continued with us today. The right i mean we. Children who watch matrix shows now are given a message constantly about the importance of respecting animals. That i think that's that's that's important Tell us about p.t. barnum and the relationship that berg had with barnum who he is total arch enemy. Yes well they sort of were but then again they were. They ended up being close friends. Allies in and i think they both kind of needed each other. They were both similar in the sense that they they enjoyed good public spat. They're kinda raised their profile As i said he had this museum in downtown new york Brought animals from all around the world. And i think that's one of the fascinating things about this time period we are. We are so used to zoos. In the nature channel end endless nonstop documentaries we see the animal world so intimately compared to what any generation has before but the beginning of that was barnum and actually it was in europe. This trade in wild animals made possible by the fact that you're colonizing much of the rest of the world into air for..

"We don't want to do them both in the same organization because what will happen is animals will drop out of the story you know and really different moral categories as much as. There's a lot in common about this problem. In terms of stopping cruel men from a you know inflicting damage on people and it still was something where we should not mix the two other dead for a long time. There was a society prevention of cruelty to animals and children Tried to do this. Intended but ultimately the sbc evolves into an organized lobbying group that is able to push for laws into push for this idea of there being a sort of a social welfare protective net. It took a long time of course to challenge Child labor laws in and to win women's women's rights and to have not be treated as property but rather as independent citizens but that was really important piece of that process that that kind of emerged out on this desire to fight cruelty in all its forms. England has always been ahead of us when it comes to animals. They the are. Spca of course. The animal liberation front started in the seventies in england and then moved and then moved over here. What was going on. In england or in other countries at the time in terms of animal cruelty in trying to stop it. Can you paint us a picture of the of the world in the eighteen sixty seventies eighties when he was working towards this goal joe. It's a good question. I think you know my understanding about about the sordid wider transatlantic perspective on. This is that while. The british were ahead Founding the spca that Berg's use of of the law very aggressively to arrest people and to intervene Was really transformative. So i think there was an interesting transatlantic exchange. Another interesting example. Is the women philadelphia. Who developed first dog shelters in experimented with these ideas about how to out a as as humanely possible euthanize. Stray dogs commendable. Control these were ideas that were brought developed in the united states by these women and brought to europe as a as a sort innovation. I don't think the rest of europe was was nearly as far along on this. It was something that we're many elite societies were formed but in terms of of us are real grassroots movement. United states was was. What's more broadly engaged in this as they were in. Lots of these sorts of reform movements. Why it didn't happen sooner. My only thought about that is that that slavery was.

"And you're barely making it by your your barely able to able to see the family at the end of the day it. I feel like it makes it so you have less of a capacity you have less energy and less than even maybe care for the suffering of others. 'cause you're just trying to to make your ends meet by the end of the day. I saw that again and again when the agents would arrest somebody who was you know working at an a horse who was on its last legs was was beaten. Down was limping often. Turn out that. The horse and owner were both in bad shape right ed and so they would be taken to court and the judge would say. Look if i give this person a ten dollar fine or take away. It's worse the children will start back home. You know so there was always a you know. Well i think for burg. He often got accused by some of being picking on the poor. The poor treat their animals worse than than than those who can afford to treat them well and he always insisted that was not the case. He was just as happy to go. After the owners of a multi-million dollar trolley contracts A couple of things that that wealthy people did in order to make their horses. Look more spirited and energetic so they would either give them burs that had these These terrible spikes in them so that when they pulled on the birth of that would horse would react in pain and it would look like know energy and excitement and stay in the bit that had a for that would would would pierce them and likewise they would have rains that would hold their necks in very uncomfortable unnatural position but made it look like they were. They're elegant stepping similar to the way where people score tennessee walking horses now. This bird went after them and also in the winter. These animals in new york city would would grow their winter coat. This didn't look sleek as so so these owners would have their their grooms shave off the winter coat in emberg would go after them in both thrown in the newspapers as well as whenever possible. Try to arrest them or humiliate them. He was himself a wealthy aristocrat of sorts. And i think that helped him because he felt unafraid to go after people that he considered minorities ought to be leaders in setting the tone And then the hunting was another another big issue..

"He went to the state of new york and got a charter to pass the first anti-cruelty law in the united states and to start the spca movement. The epaulettes on his shoulders had an effect on him because one of the powerful things about the. Aspca is that didn't they. They had the ability to arrest people who were cruel to animals. That's right that's right and that was really one of the key. Innovations that he brought to this was that he He got into the law. The right for the spca to appoint its own badge wearing deputies agents. They called them. Who would go out in the in the streets and either arrest or else threatened with arrest and sometimes cajole or or warn or advise But basically the the the the law really had teeth because of the way bird set it up. There had been some laws against cruelty to animals before that in the united states but they were never enforced. I think a lot of policemen either didn't think animal cruelty was a problem or they didn't know the line between normal exploitation of your animals versus cruel abuse so they really wouldn't touch that so it was bergen his agents who really went out and started to test this law in start to bring people to court and he didn't always win you know he spent a lot of years fighting very very interesting but not successful battles in court to try to enforce this law you. You spent an entire five years of your life on this on this book. I'm curious to goodness. What was the draw to joke to write this book to do this. Deep dive in. How did you change yourself over those five years. I was interested in in animal welfare. As you know. Many many people are up to this point. I also knew that historians are were interested in recognizing the agency of animal somehow recognizing the fact that animals are essential part Certainly were it down through human history and so scholars are thinking about ways to sort of conclude animals in the story in a way that you know if the humans are in history in animals are just permanent in there for outside of history in a way. But that's clearly not the case so environmental history the history of animal welfare movements animal liberation. All of these movements have been working on trying to to put animals into the story. So i think i was. I was intrigued by that. I also i've spent a lot of time working on other books about the early. The late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. And if you do that you see that many many pictures of the nineteenth century city or full enforces and there are lots of other animals. That don't always make it in the pictures you know. The pigs rooting in the in the garbage and packs of stray dogs and livestock pens right in the middle of city. So all those things are going on but by the nineteen twenties think of the modern city as one that has no animals. You know or one historian says you know it's in the city. We have either pets or pests. The animals we love in the animals. We try to exterminate all human history. Animals have been integral to the urban experience and over the course of fifty years animals start to get. They don't disappear but they become invisible in a way you know. They're still there. But they're pushed to the margins on ways that i try to explore in my book.

"Wednesday. You know for me. It was it was a. I realized that i had cried. And i'm a crier alexandra. Like i could cry like a good at it and i like a good cry ease it.

What what might be going on. I i realize some of it could potentially be shock of of that experience. Because i had it was the first experience i've ever had been somebody in with. Somebody's not their final breath. But i think it was. It's also you know a a part of it is is grief and the stages of grief and what we go through with the various stages of grief and i'm coming into the stage of of of much more acceptance and recognizing a to accept what has happened in it. It made me think a lot this weekend. About how many of the stirring co bid are going through the stages of grief and coming into acceptance at. This story appeared a time. Where we're we're we're at a year which is just mind boggling. At that out that we are at a year it so many people have been through a period of Extenuated grief through kogan. They've lost loved ones. They've lost their job. Some people their identity right in in in who they were before covid and so it's been a grieving year for so many people and that acceptance phase is is upon us and it reminded me how much all of us need to continue to practice. Good self care. That's what i started leaning into this week. And i had a few people i think maybe even you are you taking care of yourself nazi. Are you practicing good self care. Are you really making sure to put yourself. I for whatever reason ourselves first tends to not happen. It's a lot of times ourselves last but looking at how. I'm engaging in self care and looking at my rest in my sleep and what i'm Doing in in my room surrounding that precious time of win the down and go to sleep really taking good care of my gut. And that's something we talk about so much on the show. It is feeding it. Full healthy whole foods from the earth in the c- To really create that gut.

"Hi hi it's good to see you even though it's virtual you've had a very interesting week a very moving and transformative we. Can you share a little bit about it. Oh gosh thanks for asking. I have on last wednesday. I lost my stepfather in law. And i was with him for his her spinal breath in his transition into whatever's next and it was It was transformative for me. It was a real honor to be next to him during this journey that he took which she's been taking for awhile he's been sick for for eight nine months so with him and also might my mother-in-law just it was just the three of us because no one knows when that final breath is coming. We had been told we still probably had a week or two. My husband was on his way over and his son was going to be flying in that night but From the time. I got there it was about five hours as we. Were you know sitting with him in journeying with him in reading to him in loving on him and snuggling with him and Patting him on his chest to just bring up so much fluid in his lungs that he was struggling through and wrote after it happened. This is one of those things that people don't tell you like people don't tell you these things about let's say childbirth and then on a mothers say a main thing always my mother-in-law and i and quite frankly we didn't really know if he was dead or not because it's not this you know there was a moment where the tension dot really high and it felt intense in the room and he may vary loud noises And his tongue was doing wild interesting things outside of his mouth but he had made quite some noises throughout the day and so she and i are finding comfort in humor. Because sometimes you you. He was the funniest guy. I knew so. We have to find humor around. Dawn's don's passing. That was his name and we ran around his body for what felt like an hour but was probably ten or fifteen minutes trying to figure out if he was still with us or not grabbing trying to get pulses in heart rates and she. And i were afterwards the next day we we we. We found some humor in the ridiculousness of these ladies. That are have crying half panicked and knowing that don spirit was probably still there. He was transitioning through but he was with this. Look at them. What are they doing he added. They not known founders. I call the nurse because we need her to come over. Let us know post.

A Childhood on the Farm
"So let's jump off from one. Animal will benefit the other to talk about the family so moving to hear you describe this because it reminds me of students taking an environmental science class. And then there's the quiz lit and the flash cards and the phrase kurban sequestered and drew are false. This is learning by doing. And it's absolutely the way. Children learn best using all five senses in the three dimensional world. And you also mentioned joan about the changing of seasons and how the children are accustomed to that and learn the rhythm of that so one animal benefiting the other in your particular described to me that challenges and reward of. Let's start with. Sasha how does she benefit and tax and challenged the rest of the system right. Well i would say. Sasha is our observer and alert system for the families. she's really in tune when somebody's hurt or sick because she's always hyper focused on anything being out of balance essentially if she notices as a change to our rhythm change to our habits. She's the first to say. Why are we doing this or what's wrong about the situation. It's not what we're used to doing. The same goes for on the farm. She's the first one to come running in and say there's an injured goat. There is an injured goat coming into the house and she gets to say that sentence mom. There's an injured goat or or such and such goethe's in heat. We better breed them right now. Oh yes and how does she know about such and such goat well. She's been raised with them since she was born and so she knows their behavior. She knows all of them and their personalities and when they're acting different and with her their heat cycles she's aware that the fall is when they go into heat and she knows that they flagged their tails when they're ready flag their tail. They flagged their tails. Does it mean wave of back and forth her yup and she's smitten with a particular goat. Yes she has. A favourite goat considers it her child the goats name panda and it's an alpine dairy goat. That's funny yup. it's black and white. There is a year where we had a lot of black and white dulling so and they decided to name them all black and white name so there is like orca. Oreo and panda was one of them. Yeah so this is so much fun. This is someone because this is children's imagination applied to a practical purpose because those goats need names. You need to be able to distinguish them when she comes and says that panda is in heat. It's important for you to be able to picture which goat. She's talking about absolutely. She is alert when she comes in with the news on the continuum of excited and enthusiastic veg ing on alarm more panic. What's the tone. I would say it's equally both. I would say that to once she experiences says sees this she comes around in and it's like frantic furious. This is very important. You have to listen to me. So and so is doing this that or the other or so and so's injured and it's just i think it's giddiness that she is able to tell us that. And it's also that she is experiencing what's going on so she is. She's getting both those things going on in her brain at same
W.H.O. Researcher Seeking Coronavirus Origins on His Trip to China
"The origins of the Corona virus pandemic is responding to US concerns. White House alleges that Beijing withheld some information about the outbreak. Here's the BBC's image invokes today, Professor John Watson sought to allay doubts telling the BBC. The China trip was the first step in a long process. For now, he said There were a number of hypotheses about the origins of the virus, the most likely that it moved from one animal to an intermediate animal host and from there to humans, But the theory that it originated in a laboratory or escaped from one has not been ruled out. Neither has the possibility that frozen meat Could have played a role in transmitting the virus to humans. China responded today, saying the U. S. Is now pointing fingers at other countries that have been supporting the WHL. This is NPR news.
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

"Day was April twelfth. Nineteen eighty-eight oncomouse. Became the first animal to be patented in the United States before nineteen eighty. It was believed that living things were not eligible for renting but while working at General Electric Genetic Engineer Mohammad. Chakrabarti developed a bacterium. That could break down crude oil and ability that no naturally occurring bacteria had general electric filed a patent application for the bacterium. The application was rejected. The Patent Office Board of Appeals affirmed this rejection but the United States Court of Customs and patent appeals reversed. This decision saying that quote the fact that microorganisms are alive is without legal significance for purposes of the patent law. The Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the Court of Customs and patent appeals in the nineteen eighty case diamond versus Taco. Bharti Supreme Court ruled that alive. Human-made microorganism is patentable subject matter as a manufacturer or a composition of matter is that the bacteria was patentable because the patent claim was not for a hitherto unknown natural phenomenon but instead had markedly different characteristics from any found in nature the bacterium known as PSEUDOMONAS PETITA is the first patented living organism. And the world the TALKER. Bharti case was a landmark one that paved the way for the patenting of other living organisms and the protection of bio technology related inventions in the early nineteen eighties. Researchers at Harvard Medical School created genetically modified mouse that was highly susceptible to cancer by introducing oncogene that triggers the growth of tumors. The mouse could be used for studying cancer and testing therapies for cancer treatment in June nineteen eighty-four. Harvard College filed a patent application for the so-called uncle mouse in the US that included the process by which the mice were produced and the mice. Themselves Harvard went to file applications around the world in countries like Australia. Canada Ireland Belgium and Denmark in Nineteen eighty-seven the US patent and trademark office. Said that quote non naturally occurring non-human multi cellular living organisms including animals. Were patentable this pave. The way for the mouse's patent to be granted on April Twelfth Nineteen Eighty eight the US patent and trademark office granted. Harvard College at number four million seven hundred thirty six thousand eight hundred sixty six. The patent was for a quote transgenics. Non Human Mammal all of whose germ cells and somatic cells contain a recombinant activated uncle. Gene sequence introduced into sit mammal or an ancestor of Said Mammal at an embryonic stage. A transgenic animal is one that contains genetic material that has been artificially inserted other labs. Were developing similar mice using different teams but oncle mouse was the first to be patented. Harvard gave Chemical Company Dupont which helped fund the research done at Harvard Medical School priority. To license the Patents Dupont began marketing and selling the mouse. Researchers who viewed lab mice as shared resources took issue with this animal rights groups also oppose the patenting of animals and the commercial use of the genetically engineered mouse in two thousand the US National Institute of Health reached an agreement with Dupont. So that Dupont. Retained commercial rights but academic and government researchers could use uncle mouse without a fee. The mouse is also patented in Europe and Japan. Since one thousand nine hundred eight many other patents related to transgenic animals have been issued in the US.

John Doesn't Like Animal Crossing
"Animal. Crossing is a game that came out at the beginning of all this lockdown nonsense that we are taking seriously and is not nonsense whatsoever and where you inhabit human and the town of animals and you can catch fish you can you can. You can grow trees of Fruit. You can go into debt to a raccoon and tell everyone where to live because no one can make a decision except you. I think that's pretty accurate. And also you can fish in it which is Germane to the current conversation. Yeah and also takes place entirely in real time. Yeah it's real time based meeting. Every day is counted as a day in. Munster counted as months. This is a rudimentary explanation. The point being that tomorrow as April first and that means that's a new month and so a bunch of insects and a bunch of fish are going to go away because March has ended. Wait hold on which insects go away the Emperor Butterfly. I don't remember any of the other ones. I'm sorry okay. I think I've got that butterfly. I think I've got that butterfly on lock. Yeah what makes me a little sad as a animal crossing from just the Cultural Zeitgeist on twitter that I have been plugged into some Sasol started. They've been talking about animal. Crossing being this nice relaxing game or you can like kick your feet up. Catch a few fish trade in apron to a deer and get like a tracksuit and return. It's like this nice relaxing time and then all of a sudden yesterday everyone started freaking out because now a fish is gonna go away until December. Yes Oh nine months before you can catch the fish again unless you travel to. Someone who's island is in the Southern Hemisphere. That's an entire baby. John. It isn't entire baby. It's a long time and maybe this is the speaks to maybe a larger philosophical point about animal crossing. But I remember so the first animal crossing when it came out I was a crushingly into I played that game basically every day for like three years. Wow wait the one that came out on the Gamecube. Yeah I did basically everything in the original animal crossing. While was there even to do in the original animal crossing. You know amazingly pretty much exactly the same things there are to do in the new one. That's kind of interesting because the new one and seems like it's newer. It's newer I mean in the original animal crossing. You couldn't travel to other towns as easily. I guess really. It's largely the same except they end crafting but I did pretty much everything in that but when that came out I was a child and now as a fully fleshed man yes as a man of as a man of full flesh as an adult of thirty. I start to wonder now about animal crossing because I'm having significantly less fun and I think a lot of it has to do with like a fear of missing out like if I don't catch this fish I'm not going to be able to have suspicion for nine months Whereas when I was a child those things didn't enter. My mind is like things to be worried about. Yeah I think it's really interesting right now because I played I guess the one that was on the way. I think it was called city folk. And there's a similar thing in that game whereas as the months change different bugs different fish show up and disappear etcetera but now in the wake of this this corona virus landscape where like two months ago. I had diagnosed idea that this is where we would be an effort rooms talking over a voice only Internet p. And like practicing social distancing Texas almost heading toward a lockdown and whatnot so like in nine months what what. What's the world going to be like when I can catch the string fish again and I think maybe that has something to do with people's mania about this fish which by the way? Quick fish tip. I think you can only catch it at the top of a cliff so you need a ladder to get thank Ray The the string fish for those of you. Who Don't know and this is going to be completely useless to you. When this comes out but I can only be caught on the clifftop rivers so if you have an elevated platform or a plateau near the river on your quipped to Catch Yourself. String fish But I think that's something that's pretty interesting that's happening and this is true not only in as as Germane to animal crossing but his true pretty much for everybody is the number of things that we have to care about now is actually pretty significantly truncated. Because we've taken most social obligations out of the sphere of things that we actually need to worry about. So I think honestly if you looked at things I could worry about or could be doing before everything happened it numbered and maybe the low hundreds but now I think the things I have to worry about is maybe eight and one of those things is animal crossing so I worry about a lot more than I would otherwise. Yeah I mean. Remove me from the situation that we're currently in number one. I wouldn't own animal crossing. Yes same probably. Yeah I wouldn't have gone bought this game if I didn't no. I was going to be locked in my apartment for the unknowable future. I would have skipped it over for. I don't know another game Really I only purchased it because I knew what was coming. I was like Oh. This'll be a welcome distraction. But even though I was deeply in love with the original animal crossing and I played the one on the D. S. new leaf. Maybe yeah I think that what was called New Leaf But whatever the DS was I played that But other than that I have not purchased or cared about animal crossing since the release of whatever the second one was so I would not have purchased this game where we not in this situation so really I think without what's going on right now. Neither of US would be this invested in the lives of our animal villagers

Do Animals Get Married?
"On this. Podcast we take questions from curious. Curious kids just like you all over the world and we find answers this week. We're answering questions about how other animals think and feel oh and behave and how those thoughts and feelings and behaviors are the same or different from humans to help guide us through your questions is Alissa asset airy. She's a graduate student at a place called Yale University but she doesn't spend all her time in a classroom or even in a research lab for my job August. I study animal behaviour and I specifically I just study monkey behavior site. Go out into an island. All the monkeys live and I watch chunkys behave and interact with each other and try to make connections about how those monkeys interact with each other with how humans interact with each each other to think more about how monkeys about the world. What parts of how humans think about the world are shared with? How lucky about the world doesn't that sound cool? And we thought her background would make her a perfect guest for today's show. Not only that. But Eliza says she's really passionate about making sure kids in particular no they can do the kind of job. I'm she does because she had no idea. This was even a possibility when she was your age. When I was a little kid I loved animals so so much and bless my mom? She just let me have everything in house like. Just let me bring any animal She is definitely a huge part. Definitely Fed got into my obsession with animals. Learning about animals like So I had all sorts of bugs and anything that I could catch outside in the house and it wasn't until I was a sophomore in college. I learned that people study in behavior for a living their whole job. That's now that's my whole job and I think if I could've told my childhood self I would have been so stoked. Okay here's the first question. Analysts is going to tackle high nine names Giddy. I live in Tacoma Washington announced five years old and my question is do any kind of animal get married a lot of people. Ask Me Discussion when I'm working especially because I work with some of our closest living relatives which ktar monkeys and People WanNa know like to the monkeys have relationship serve. They have anything that looks like marriage. When you think about what marriages it's it's kind of an agreement between two people who that they're going to raise their kids together and they're gonNA spend their life together And I think we do see some aspects of these things in other animals so there's a lot of ritual in or like doing different sorts of Behaviors ears and when you're trying to like core someone So there's like dancing and you gift giving and we do see that in some types of animals. I'M GONNA Pause Elissa for a second in here when she says there are a lot of rituals in how animals decide to pair up. Do you understand why that might be a similar thing to human marriage. A ritual is a set of actions or activities that people do the same way in a certain type of situation so when people get married they often follow rituals or traditions in their marriage ceremonies. Now there are all different kinds of marriages but sometimes for example. There's a first dance at a wedding where two people getting married danced to a song they've picked out that's meaningful to them or maybe a bride has her hands and feet painted an intricate intricate designs with Hannah before her wedding in some weddings one or both members of a couple might stop on and break glass other times a couple jumps over. A broom is part of their ceremony. There are tons of different customs or traditions that people like to follow or not follow when they get married. But let's get back to non human human animals Elissa is noting than in many cases. Different animals have rituals that they perform like one or both of the animals who want to get together engage in dancing for each other or one animal brings gifts to another animal. That's not marriage but it is a way that the two animals pair up and decide to get together and have this sort of communication about what their relationship is going to be and like with humans. There are a lot of different decisions. They go into two animals deciding whether or not to get together In terms of marriage the agreement to spend your life with someone. I think we do see that. A lot of animals. Also the term in animal behaviour it's called monogamy which means to share the same space over some period of time and for some species. This will mean gene they live together. Arrays babies together just for like one year or one season but there are some species of animals that live in pairs for their whole life. We see this most commonly in birds some birds you might recognize for instance some species of penguins like the Emperor Penguin they are thought to mate for life. I I spend their whole life with just one other individual and then there are some other birds. Say Even I had to look up to. There's a bird called the hornbill that meets her life. The Albatross is another bird that meets relief pretty uncommon and Infineon's and reptiles like snakes and Salamanders and lizards although it happens happens occasionally or fish. We don't really see it in fish that often either and then in mammals. It's pretty rare to so humans are mammals but also monkeys McKie's dogs cats horses and we see it in one species of monkeys. They think that the monkey is monogamous for their whole life again monogamy means. He's a pair or a couple that stays together and in many animals. It means that they have babies together. But don't make or try to have babies with any other the animal sometimes that just means for one season or one year and in some animals they share a partnership for their whole adult life or for many many many seasons or years. I think that's most similar to how people think of human marriage or partnerships. They often last for a very long time right more even a lifetime but not always human marriage is a very complicated thing and you should talk to the adults in your life about the values that your family holds around marriage. Marriage is often about love but the actual act of marriage is a contract a legal or a religious document that two to people entering a marriage sign agree to and certain rights and privileges go along with that document. The government is sometimes involved. If you have a religion login and you follow that religion sometimes religion is also involved. So it's pretty clear that other than humans. No animals signed documents and have have actual official marriages so the literal answer to duties. Question is no animals. Don't get married but marriage isn't isn't the only way to love someone or to form a partnership so another way we could ask about non human animals and how they pair up is do animals love each other in terms of love it gets tricky because you break it down to something very boring and biological and not very like loving at all. This is true when you speak to someone who studies like what you would call love in humans to because one way scientists study what love is is by looking at human membranes and the changes in our brains and our bodies when we say we're feeling love so we don't actually know for sure whether animals feel. I love the same way. Humans do for one thing. Animals can't talk to us to tell us. And there are so many variations of love love for your family love for for your friend love for a romantic partner or someone you might want to marry or have children with love for your favorite hotdog. I'm joking that isn't really love or is it but also what you think of as love and what I think of as love might be totally different in our brains means so scientists have to use research to make an educated guess a hypothesis about what animals might be feeling so they study things. It's like brain activity. What kinds of hormones are chemicals in your brain and body change when animals or you do different activities or think different thoughts and and they studied those kinds of changes in animals to try to interpret things like could an animal feel love or feel different emotions? There are many animals that get a surge surge of a hormone called oxytocin sometimes called the love hormone or the love chemical when the animals are doing something like cuddling or playing and we certainly we have examples of animals doing things that look to us like love caring for their babies forming partnerships that looked like friendships. Maybe feeling very very sad when another animal they've been with dies or goes away now. It varies from species to species. I don't think anyone has done experiments to see if slugs slugs feel love but people have spent a lot of time trying to figure out if elephants love their babies and if dogs love US and again and while we can't say for certain that they do feel love we know that for some animals their brain chemical signal that they're feeling something and that that something looks similar to the brain changes in humans who are feeling love so I guess the best we could say is maybe animals feel love. Probably they feel something that feels like closeness or connection to each other.
'Call of Duty' Will Have Battle Pass
"Like you should go back to racing Dave fixed a lot of the issues some of it is still egregious but it's not as straight up I've poked defense and then punched the fence and the kind of lineup leaving lay on the fence for a bit and like all right we're resilient we can kind of deal with a bit more than subscription service you're choosing to buy this or not but it's essentially like it's a loop box that's not we're not loobox the mail service sent to your house base and that's when the core thing that you came for is no longer what it was and I think that that is the balance and need to find is giving people enticing things that aren't monetize it it's how you mark is it like it is not just a business model it's also game designed behind that business model got is one hundred percent and especially when we've been talking about Apple Arcade Z. how the game is being affected just to be able to make more money right and I feel like that's not a bad thing it just can easily be a bad thing when you let balanced kind of one way or the other and that's where alternate forms of revenue come in where they can only do that because of the subscription nature of apple arcade right with the subscription nature of battle passes they be allowed to have a little bit more leniency in not having a nickel dime you every single where the every single place that they can right we'll see how this law like I'm curious how this works out for them revenue wise yeah because if it if it's a huge failure ever doing this again going right back to lou boxes but I mean it's also called easily the best selling game every year this game is a reboot of sorts of the best popular ones yeah not necessarily on comedy but like the one you think of duty so hopefully this one actually works out for them I'll tell you what's not working out is seventy six is delaying disease this comfortably post from Bethesda and honestly when I opened his dock this morning usually when I'm hosting I make the dock Greg had already made the dock and he put this story injustice story so I'm guessing this is shout out to Greg Miller who really wants to talk about this but can't right now really wants to like fall and seventy six van is being want to like a game that people don't like that next that's right for so long still try forget there's video evidence of this watch our coverage where he is like stoked it's like all right but hey you can hear one or two more times yeah thirty six is delayed the NBC so I think it was last he three Bethesda announced that hey we've heard you start making quested fallout seventy six that don't just have humans are like human players but also NBC kickers that are like written like an actual fallout game so that was opposed to come this year today with post that was saying we've been hard at work on fallout seventy six this year including our biggest free update yet waste landers were excited about how as leaders coming together but it's going to need more time to do the Best most Polish update it can be so we're delaying it released a Q. One next year good news there's no huge games coming out next thing to distract you from playing fallout certainly not in the first four months of the year we continued to reevaluate arch in change our processes to make sure that we're doing our hit star quality bar and yours we adjudged delay but we know you're worth the extra time wastelands are turning out to be one of the largest expansion we ever done and it changes their entire world with human ABC's returning we'll be sharing details over time but here's a first look at some of what's to come and waste energy could read the full blog post for pictures and all that stuff but I wanna taking the snark aside trying to get around the nation tippety here I just feel like this is such a wasted opportunity of a game because this could have been something special could have been something that people really latched onto in love and I think all that would've took is a little bit of patients and not needing a game at e three I think but that's the kind of they panicked a hit a point where the realized Osha we're one of the big dogs now we have to have a three press conference we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA do it we're going to do it every year and I feel like that works for them because they have enough of a library that they can talk about here's the deal see updates to the game that came out last year here's a couple of VR experiences Houston brand new titles to look forward to but that one big but here's what's coming this year and here's what you should be excited about because that worked so well for them multiple times and when it got to this this was the game nobody was really asking for this which they needed to prove why was worth it more than anything and as we've seen with the launch they didn't do that right this game could have been special instead of it coming out a year ago it came out next year when these things from the get would've made sense but that's the thing I think Mr Got Kinda drunk on file responses 'cause like those games have always been a little broken in different ways and how much that like it depends on your experience of how much a little means but I think they saw that it was not reacting or the initial releases were going well but they put in so much marketing work and preordered and all that stuff like well we got her as of this year so I remember last year Todd Howard or not let's see three two zero says what would you do differently what has that is as I would have put this early access for ear I which is the logical thing to do in this the thing they're talking about now should have been hey we're ready to launch fallout seventy six this is the game yeah this is the full release aim and that would have made so much more sense I feel like people would have accepted a bit more early access still kind of a dirty word dirty word especially on the console side of things but that would in so much smarter and so much more beneficial to them in the situation we're in now where honestly this is surprising headline I think Odin not that interesting it's like who's besides Greg Miller really bummed about this right now I don't WanNA clown for delaying a game for Polish reason they should do not you should totally do that always but also I kind of wonder do you think something's happening because they this is apparently having some development trouble and the thing they realized before the Game Lodge Oh which is doing we're working on this thing but also a can we Nakimora left or left we don't order what they really know what went on there she's still looking for work and I saw her tweeting being a platinum games today interesting awesome it she would go back because he was working on being ETA and all that suffer really but there's also doomed got delayed till next year so I kinda wonder liking all their big games they were like they showed this past he three are now not coming out this year here's the thing I I don't take those things as a bad sign I I think that if anything that is them listening to me it just gave where it's just like hey there's no rush on this stuff like but does the are a known entity people like them people respect him they got through the followers six per fluffy did they do like I think that they did in the sense that when it was happening it felt like they were never coming back it felt like they were straight up cancelled like no one he's going to want to watch or cover as conference again and then they came back and he three months later with things the show but I feel like the answer to that is in are they are they good at announcing new games it's when they had show the next fall out the next rose whatever are the question's GonNa be are you gonNA fuck this up again yeah and I don't think so because those games the elder scrolls the core fallout we got some time on those I think that doom needs to be good for that to not be an issue right and I feel like they can take they don't need them to come out this year we don't need the games this year granted next year it's probably going to get lost show but people are so excited for that that I don't think that's good win to really take the people wanNA play maternal are GONNA play it regardless right and that game just needs to be fantastic and I believe it's going to be and if they need them need more time for that I think that they're very smart call taking it if they would've put out this year and it's it was fine I don't think there's a chance to turtles going to be bad right if it was just twenty sixteen again yeah then I think that that could that could be more like a but if they come out with some baller shit which I expect them to next you I don't think anybody's really going to be worried about elder scrolls are fallout come twenty twenty two or whatever big doom fan I like doom twenty sixteen I'm a big fan of doom in general just the style of arcade shooters and stuff so are you a big animal crossing van not at all okay I was going to ask you which of those who games you play over that animal switch between the two because I know animal crossing is going to do the thing of you've done all this stuff come back tomorrow I will give you more tasks all right just switch to killing demons and hell this might be the first animal crossing that I even give a attempted shot what was the what reasons have you never clicked his look at him I this does not look like anything I wanna do it looks like chores I don't like I don't like collecting twigs I play video games to get away from chores played shores to get away from real people like dogs it's funny on collect thon game whereas animal crossing you're literally doing fucking shores are I honestly the Games are more similar than you would think I know that's bullshit the no all right we'll see what happens mark twenty-first we'll see who talks about one all right persona franchises surp- center franchise surpasses ten million copies sold this is in venture be by Jeff Grubb is taking nearly a quarter of a century but the persona series has hit ten million copies sold that includes all games in the series the main role playing adventures as well as spin offs like a Dungeon crawler persona q two developer atlus revealed as milestone in a blog post are as Japanese persona website today is revealed that it is planning to hold an event to reveal more about the upcoming persona five royale royal which is revamped version of the persona. RPG royal is deal replacement for October thirty first and it is certainly going to advertise total sales going forward persona growing franchise for Sega and Atlas the game first game before Golden Get it together and Jeff Grubb I know you're listening Vida since then the series has found a larger audience personify for example surpassed two point seven million copies sold all on its own okay tim how do you sort of series I don't care I haven't feeling if I were to jump into it I really really dig it my like final fantasy What's I like poke them on a lot and and also like anime a lot persona seems like it would be up my alley I also just can't commit to these Super Long Games drives me what's but you'll you'll collect all of the Vulcan whatever's and smash brothers spirits collective it's a quick fifteen minutes every time they knew one some say someone percent five is one of my favorite game it yeah that's true so you should go to sleep ten million copies sold what surprises me is that seems like a low number for the entire franchise but then when you stop and think about it like this just
Concerns growing over Chronic Wasting Disease
"Joining us on this statement today is wildlife veterinary and Charlie bouncing and Charlie were talking chronic wasting disease this week. What's your department doing to address chronic wasting disease? Well, yeah. Chronically disease is tough. Because once it's here, it's here forever. So really in order to address it you try to do everything you can to lower the risk of it spreading from one animal to the next within an area, and then prevent it from being introduced to new areas we've had it in three two for about a decade. We now know that it's in the northwest. And so we're going to follow the example of three f two in instituting, some transportation and bathing restrictions up in the north west. In addition to that will continue to do surveillance just monitor how big of a problem, we have there in you know, if it's increasing or staying steady we hope that we can keep it under control and maintain a low prevalence. I mean, that's what will continue to watch moving
Treating the microbiome, and a gene that induces sleep
"Napping that lethargic feeling is actually not triggered by the infection you're grappling with but your immune system i'm here with amita segal to talk about a gene that links sleep and immune function hey amita high i could you talk a little bit about the processes that regulate sleep the truth of the matter is that we understand very little about sleep we do know that it occurs with a twenty four hour rhythm is through kadian rhythm and that's driven by a clock biological clock that's within us we know that there's this other system called the homeo- static system and the homies static system is the system that ensures that you get enough sleep usually the two systems worked together to determine when sleep occurs but the home static system can sometimes override the circadian so you're up all night sleep in the morning even though you're doc is telling you to wake up we understand a lot about the circadian process we understand very little about the homeo- static process like what is it that makes us sleepy when b been awake for a long period of time how did your team approach isolating molecules that modulate sleep and wakefulness we developed several years ago a fly model for sleep and the reason we did that was because we wanted to really get at molecules in you know the genetics of sleep which is harder to pakelle in mammalian models in the fly lenders are beautifully to those types of approaches where you can just is the animal and then look for ones that have a baron see patterns what was your study trying to figure out that previous studies didn't address in previous studies we had found genes that affected sleep but for the most part we found that those genes were required for the animal to sleep with the one drivers of sleep so you couldn't like increase sleep above the normal sleep amount so what we wanted was you know what is the trigger would is there a gene that when you just increase it the animal will become speak and that's what we tried to do in this study right in your team was successful and identifying a single gene that induces sleep called nitty how are you able to isolate the specific gene so we basically took you know different genes across the whole genome and over expressed them like you know increase levels of those in adult neurons and we find that when we turn on this gene so that it then makes makes protein the animals sleep and no other gene from the twelve thousand or so that we tested did that so what normally triggers the expression of this gene normally it turns out that when be animal has very high need to sleep like if the animal has been awake all night or if the animal is sick during sickness you know you'll need to sleep increases 'cause leap is restorative is the sleep induced from this protein any longer deeper or different than normal sleep it is deeper and longer so what happens when we increase expression of this molecule duration of each episode is increased saying they're sleeping more but they're also sleeping in a better consolidated fashion so each episode of sleep is longer deeper sleep is actually referring to the arouse ability so we find that when you over express this molly if you increase levels of this molecule that is harder to wake the flies up how exactly does this jane promotes sleep in fruit flies so this particular protein it turns out to be an immune molecule and it is produced in in peripheral tissues right in the body and it actually kill bacteria but normally you don't even think if these proteins is being in the brain will do they are and this particular molecule gets turned on in the brain and it gets turned on in the brain in very few sows like probably just to cells and what he does is act to the normal known scape circuitry as in the neurons that normally affect sleep we don't know how it does it but it seems to be connecting to that circuitry so at addition to the immune benefits from inducing sleep it also has other properties that help it boost the immune system it is also promoting immune function and so we think that that when be animal is sick it has a twofold function on the one hand it's killing the bugs on the other hand it's increasing sleep both of which are hand helping the animal recover from the infection so it was the most exciting part of this discovery being of the very fact that we could get a molecule that would trigger sleep was really exciting for us the fact that it was secreted was also really exciting because the sleep field has long believed in the idea that there are secreted molecules that can increase sleep so many many years ago these experiments done where people sleep deprived sheep and goats and then they took their cerebrospinal fluid and put it into animals that had been allowed to sleep and they injected animals became sleepy they basically were transmitting sleepiness from one animal to the other by just taking fluids secreted molecules have there been any other genes discovered that are similar to this gene you found in fruit flies people have tried a lot over the years to figure out what it is that transmits that seeping from animal to animal and it's unclear i mean for wild people putt that it might be the molecule called dennis scene which is a breakdown product of energy utilization but beef exa for damascene on sleep ready restricted to certain parts of sleep in certain areas of the brain but importantly some of the molecules that have been implicated our immune molecules one of the reasons us fruit flies is because it's easier to isolate the genes that in mammalian models but what would be a potential approach to figuring out if a gene like this exists in humans there are similar classes of molecules in mammals anti microbial peptides molecules that kill bacteria so for starters what i would do is work with the mouse or arrack model and inject them with different anti microbial peptides that are normally made in those mice and rats and see if they can induce sleepiness thanks so much mita thank you megan amita

These are the top household dangers for your pets
"Name is Dr Lori Hasson. I'm here with my colleague Sasha, Kristen Britain. And Dr Amanda Marino, and we are exotic Alvin Canarian. So we treat all kinds of fun exotic pets, including many small mammals, and we want to share some really important information with you today today, we thought we would talk to you about the top household dangerous for small animals, he's great pets in your home. But we know holidays are coming. Lots of new people and potentially new animals can be in your house these animals and people can surly pose a hazard to the small mammals that live in our homes. So we want to make you aware of these hazards. So that you can try to prevent them from happening to keep your pets, healthy and happy. So I wanted to welcome my colleagues here, Dr Britain and Dr Marino. Hello. Hello there. So what do you think is? I mean, we treat these animals all day long. We're talking really about one animals now. So when we're talking about kind of the mammals. Smullen Fuzzy's is what I would say. So anything from ferrets to Guinea pigs rodents, so rats him sisters. You name it to some of the more strange ones, like potentially hedgehogs or sugar gliders just kind of like chinchillas those types of animals or what we're going to focus on today and two meaning how many of those we actually see so many people have these cuts. I mean think about how the bunnies we see that real even seeing tons of bunnies. Lately. Yeah. We definitely see a lot of bunnies. I have one myself. And so, you know, they're little critters. But sometimes they can be a little. Mischievous and get into things that they're not supposed to. So I think that this is a pretty important topic to talk about so have you had any bad experiences with your Petithomme your money, personally, not really so many, you know, most of the time, you know, he's especially when someone's not home. He's housed in his cage that has plenty of room for him to kinda get around and move around. And when we're at home, you know, he sometimes get some free time, but it's always supervised. So you never has times necessarily get into things. But just knowing what he does things like loose wires or the other pets in my household because I do have two dogs in the house. There's definitely a lot of potential potential problems that can arise. So let's talk a little more detail about those potential problems. I know that we see this practice all the time this wires. That's a really good one. I mean, these pets are really really oral Britain. Recently, do I've had personal experience with wires with a couple of rabbits that I used to have long ago and ended up having to wires even in the back of the TV area. Where you just don't expect your pet to be able to get to those are areas that they like to go explorer. It may be a little bit warm quiet dark and area that they may want to go look into and yet there are those dangers of those wires being there. So these guys can easily chew through wires in when they chew on them, especially if they're plugged in. They can give them an electric shock, and that can be a significant danger for an animal, whether it's a rabbit or a rat. You name it not only ingesting that material could become a problem. But also the shock itself if it is plugged in that can potentially be life threatening for the animal that shot can kind of attack their heart and their lungs and caused some dysfunction there, and they can start having breathing problems. So definitely something to be aware of. And and the good thing is is that there are things that we can do to help prevent them for getting to those areas in the first place. So there is almost like a predictive plastic that you can put over all of your wires. And just make sure that the animal can't get to them that way, not only they're all picked up an organized, but protected from the animal itself, and those are things that you can purchase from anything from like a electronic store that's near you. Or just a general store to be able to collect those wires and protect them from from your little pets teeth.
