"An ABC podcast today, doctor Paul Johnson is a Professor of medicine at the university of Melbourne, among other roles. But back in 1993, he was a young physician, working at the Fairfield infectious diseases hospital in inner Melbourne. And it was a personal connection that would set off everything that came next. Our family had just bought a holiday House in east cows in a region called silver leaves. And that's because, unfortunately, my dad died relatively young and he's leftovers sabbatical. My mom and my wife and myself got together and we bought this house as a memorial almost to him because he used to love going down there, but he only ever had the chance to rent. We weren't that well often we were kids. Cows is the main township on Philip island. A beach holiday spot two hours drive southeast of Melbourne. The island's usual claim to fame is the local population of little penguins. But this was a different story. All of a sudden, I was seeing people at the Fairfield infectious diseases hospital in the central Melbourne. Who seemed to have these rather horrible ulcers and their street addresses were quite similar or in the same area as we just bought this house. A handful of patients was presenting to the hospital with these severe skin lesions that refused to heal. These often appeared as a bull's eye wound, quite deep, red, and pustules at the center with weakens surrounding skin. Paul started to investigate these cases, more closely. I put a little group together and we started having a look around. And we found that there are clustering around the golf course, so all of the people who had cases, if you draw them on a map, they all seem to cluster around the golf course and that swampy area near the golf course. Whereas, on the other side of cows, which otherwise was similar, there was no cases at all. So it was extremely local. At the time, Paul had been searching around for a research project to sink his teeth into. And here it was. Mysterious ulcers, popping up in this one sleepy beach town. And as he soon finds out, this mysterious disease, it does have a name. Actually, it has a few. So it used to be called bean style also in Victoria. And it's been called daintree ulcer in mosman ulcer and far north Queensland. It's been called sick belong a cpac and New Guinea and the name beru also actually comes from East Africa. But the reason there are so many local names is because people realize this very local characteristic that you get it in certain places. And it's this last one that the World Health Organization would decide on as the diseases official name. Paul was going to investigate beru ulcer. And he wasn't going to do it alone. I'm Elizabeth cool ass, welcome to science friction. Are we seeing infinitesimally Mitchell for a couple more weeks? And today on the show, how a sideline research project would turn into a 25 year collaboration to figure out how brulee also functions and how it spreads. It's like a really interesting, almost murder investigation. And this Odyssey, it's really a parable for how science works. And often finding something isn't the way you thought it was, it's much more helpful. But now after a quarter century, two Melbourne scientists are getting very close to some answers. Okay, Paul, before we get into the mysteries of what we don't know, let's get into what we do know. Would you describe what it is we know about the bory ulcer and how it functions. So it's basically an environmentally acquired infection of the skin. Basically something happens to you when you go into an environment where the bacteria is and for many years it's been a mystery where it is in the environment and how you get it when you're there. And really interestingly, it seems to only take an afternoon or an hour even in what we call an endemic area to become at risk of acquiring it. And if you do acquire the infection, it can often be very hard to tell. It's got a very long incubation period. So it may be many months before you notice anything. And typically you notice a small growing thing that we call a lesion and it keeps growing. And it doesn't usually hurt too much. But it just relentlessly progresses. Over the years, doctors like Paul have pieced together the movements of people visiting endemic areas for short stretches of time. Things like going to Philip island for a day trip. And they figured out that there's usually a four or 5 month lag between assumed exposure to the bacteria, and the first presentation of an ulcer. In some cases, that can take 9 or ten months. So you've got no idea it's there, and it gives the infection heaps of time to grow. And now, if left, it can become very destructive slowly. It kind of spreads quite widely in the fat layer between the skin and the lining over the top of the muscles and the bone. So in that space between skin and the deeper structures. And also that you eventually see on the surface, which may not be there initially, is really like the middle of a donut, so you see a hole in your skin appearing, but the problem is already quite a lot bigger and gone well beyond what you can see. So what's on the surface is a kind of tip of the iceberg. It can be typically in the disease family trait, baruch also is closely related to leprosy and tuberculosis. Cases were usually found in tropical, rural areas of West African countries. Places like Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Benin. Left untreated, the legions can grow so be that people are left with terrible scarring or can lose the function of a limb. So when the disease presents in Victoria, it's something of a fantastic paradox as Paul puts it. Meanwhile, here we are in Victoria. We've now got one of the highest rates in the world. And we are seeing it in fully developed country in urban and suburban settings. And yet people are turning up in the winter to their doctors with a tropical disease occurring in a temperate part of the world. So that's the paradox. The reason it turns up in the winter is because of this long incubation period and people do get infected in the summer. But the fact that we've got a tropical rural disease in a temperate first world city is really interesting. In Australia, the first recorded case of beru ulcer occurred in the 1940s in bendale, a small town about 300 kilometers east of Melbourne. Not long after that, a group of Australian scientists, including sir Peter McCallum. They identify the bacterium that causes the disease. Mycobacterium ulcer or M also runs for short. They have also been small case clusters around the daintree river in far north Queensland, and some near rockhampton. But for decades, they were just a few cases each year. Then, across three years in the early 90s, 29 cases emerged around that one golf course in Phillip island. This had been an infectious disease, rare enough and dispersed enough, but no one had paid too much attention, except for a small number of dedicated researchers..

"This is an ABC podcast so there's a whole key in front of us of knives, scalpels, tweezers. Yep. Thread because I'm gonna do some stitching. We got a little bit of fine sawdust here. Yes. That's gonna help us soak up any moisture that might start coming out. We don't want to use that, you don't want blood on your feathers. Okay, that's your warning right there. There is just a little bit of flesh and bone, feathers and skin in this edition of science friction. It's Natasha Mitchell, wielding a scalpel, yes. But I promise you there will be no ooze. People think that we actually got some blood and stuff everywhere, but what you're going to realize is it's not. It's can be quite clean. So I'm putting on my apron and getting pretty psyched. 'cause I'm gonna do some taxidermy. Really? So it's not just texting them used to be called stuffing. So back in the day, usually methods back then, but back when it was cold, stuffing was literally that took the skin off something. So that skin up and then stuffed it and it could have been stuffed with local straw, wood fiber, anything really. My name's Jane Smith. Now you're one of Australia's top taxidermists, yes? I'm not sure about that, but I've been working at male museum for 35 years as a traditional museum, taxidermist. When I started at the museum, I did work experience. And always had a love of natural history, but never thought I'd fall in the line of taxidermy, but the head preparator there had been a 40 years. Wow. He wanted someone to mentor and I just happened to be at the right time. Do you remember your first taxidermy specimen? Yeah, yeah, and it still was on display, not long ago and she has brought Braxton emotions, really. It's a qual, which is quite a very specimen for species in Victoria. But museum taxidermists like dean are almost as scarce these days too. We're quite rare. We're not commercial taxidermists doing the game, not deer and foxes and things like that. So we're really specialized in understanding the anatomy and so forth of all our native wildlife and can do some pretty darn good taxidermy. And I'm here to learn some of that art will try to. This was the first main interview I was allowed to record outside of my home since the pandemic and Melbourne lockdowns began in March 2020. So I really felt like breaking out and getting totally visceral and how to feel really alive having a counter with the dead. So on our own summer I am taking us into a kind of fantasy office in central Victoria today to made a duo called the museum makers. We're in a place called lock 19, which is a wonderful art precinct at the back of kessel main Victoria. I've got a workshop here that I'll share with dean. And we make things. Do they ever? But calling them merely things is an understatement. It can range from Tony insects to huge blue whales, so they might be skeletons are going to research collection, or they might be models of things that might be extinct animals, fossil replicas. We do all sorts of things like cultural things. So it might make replicas of Aboriginal artifacts. Just over your left shoulder, I see a taxidermied crow to our right. Well, we're staring down upon us as a dinosaur model over there is a kangaroo boxing kangaroo cast. I think some carcasses of bets, some foxes, a crocodile, peering overhead. Most of the taxi day we all have taxidermy is for institutions like schools or universities or museums. And it was at the Melbourne museum where you and Dane first met as kids starting out as traine museum preparators. Every surface in this large tin shed they now call their office is adorned with a menagerie of natural history alliance at books, sketches, the hand built models and taxidermied specimens they make of marsupials, snakes, spiders, birds, plants, and a whole lot more. Oh, the drawer of eyes. Look at that. Always of all different colors and sizes. Yeah, that'd be crocodile eye. I don't know what that was off. That's a yeah. Dinosaur? Well, I reckon it must be a dinosaur who sort of. Oh, look at that fish. In Europe, a lot of these are blind glass. They're not cheap for eyes, you know, get eyes made. And then we have other ones which we call a blanket. It's got the black pupil, and then we'll pint all the fine detail in behind the glass. So you see it from the front. I find this place totally beguiling alongside the taxidermy specimens. The artificial models they make of flora and fauna begin small out of all sorts of materials just look so real. And that's the point. So that's a cast of a koala body. While you did fall out of the coil of conservation in Phillip island, but I wanted it so every now and then it had blink and its head would turn. Someone would go did that just and then they'd go you know they talked to the person this is going. No, actually not. So here we have. And if you thought you did a pretty good job of perfecting a sourdough or surviving endless Zoom meetings this past year, these two had the coolest project during Victoria's COVID lockdowns. We were fortunate enough to be in regional Victoria where we did have some restrictions, but we could still work with a team of 5 people and we built a 60 meter dinosaur. And it had to travel to WH for the new museum that opened. What sort of dinosaur titanosaurus massive sauropods to four legged brontosaurus type thing a long neck long tile. The herbivore. Creating an enormous authentic replica of a dinosaur that's long extinct is a big engineering fate and a scientific one. Near where they found some of the fossil remains of the dinosaur they found what they think to be the skin impressions. So the dinosaurs lied on the side of a muddy bank. It's caught up and it's left an impression. Look, your footprint, if you like of its skin. And I believe that to be the skin texture of that particular dinosaur. And we had to rest sculpt all that over the whole boost, 60 m² of skin. And there was built over 6 months. It took us three months to just sculpt the skin on. So while everyone else was making sourdough watching Netflix videos during lockdown, you were making a dinosaur. That's every kid's fantasy. Like I said to people, we weren't making a gecko. We wouldn't have been at a socially distanced case I was good that we had a 6 time meter to dinosaur project. Text you doing me is a really good basis for understanding anatomy, getting inside of animals, working closely with animals. We can apply that to building sculptures of prehistoric animals as well and getting that right. And with that dinosaur, it.

"It saban with that out of the way that means got one order of business left a race this weekend and this is going to be such a big such an unpredictable race. Fabio quattro edging away in the championship looking for that opportunity to just kick the door wide open and attractive. He's really not that fond of you've got more marquez. Who has been incredible here in the past looking to recreate some of the magic that we saw a couple of rounds of go back and saxon ring and then on top of all of that. Maverick van y'all is back on the affiliates. Let's talk about all of them. And what i think is gonna happen this weekend as we jump into our full preview of round thirteen of the twenty twenty one motogp championship the aragon gp at motor land aragon. And let's start by talking about this track. Aragon hasn't been around for a very long time but somehow to me at least it has the feel of a more historic more iconic track. Even though it's not and that's simply because they did a great job of designing it you know from that giant block wall. That looks like it's been there for century To the various challenges to allow out that really flows with the surrounding landscape. It's great looking. It's unique and an excellent all around test for riders. You know that now famous wall isn't just there for decoration. By the way that's part of the track up on top of it and that's how much elevation change. There is an arrogant. It's like a ride through the mountains but just a lot faster and you know without somebody crowding onto the double yellow line around a blind corner. The other great thing about aragon is how it mixes things up. The front part of the circuit is definitely more technical varying between mid speed and slower corners. And then things really open up and get more flowing on the back half including that big two hundred mph backstretch that really does even get some slipstream action on the motor gp bikes. But of course motor theory is going to be absolutely mental backstretch. But it doesn't even take that long for things to get going term. One is really fun. It's very hard heartbreaking and after that first lap once things get going. It's the perfect opportunity to outduel somebody on the brakes heading into that one The run up the hill to turn seven is also a great place for action. As is the heartbreaking turn twelve then that left right combo heading onto the backstretch an backstretch is really one of the highlights of this track for me. I mean just heading endlessly down towards turned sixteen there earlier. Get on the throttle. The later you get on the brakes at the end the more of a chance that you can surprise somebody heading into that. Big final bend back to start finish. Dicator of course is going to have an advantage to a lesser extent. Honda on the straight. But this is gonna be our best look yet. At how much zouqi may have gained back with that new rear ride height device are still gonna be losing out to the but maybe quite as much and of course yamaha's can have to make time in that area as well. The coolest part of this track though for me is the quasi corkscrew interns eight and nine tons of elevation change and it leads to a challenging high-speed left-hander that's very phillip island like so all the way around great stuff at track like i said it feels like a more historic track than one. That hasn't really been around that long. So that's where the racing now. Let's talk about the contenders the writers. I think have the best chance of finishing on the podium and this one maybe making it to the top step and taking home that trophy and more importantly the twenty five points and we've got to start our discussion of contenders in this one with fabio charro. Fabio was right in the middle of his late season slump when modo gp landed in aragon for two in a row last year and while he qualified on the polymerase one that was the highlight. He struggled mightily in that first race and only rebounded to eighth the second time around. But it hasn't been all bad for fabio in aragon he was fifth in two thousand nineteen and more importantly things are vastly different this season than they were one year ago at this time actually a little less than a year ago. Fob has been the fastest rider all year long in just when things started to look a little bit suspect in austria will watch brought it right back. Around with his blistering performance in silverstone this race is going to be a little bit more challenging. Thanks to a pair riders. We're going to talk about next but fabrio still for me is kind of the ryder. Beat right now. Even though like i said he's not that enthused about the track he might be playing it. A little bit cagey one way or the other. There's no question that if he can avoid any incidents in this one he'll be in the mix for the podium the entire way from start to finish now for the opposite situation. We need to look no further. The mr mark marquess because we're harare has been absolutely brilliant all year long but isn't good at aragon well with mark his results and his number of retirements this year. Really don't instill much confidence at all but his career at aragon been pretty spectacular in seven motor. Gp races mark has five podiums and every single one of those podium results victory and he's qualified on the pole in five of those seven races as well and yes. He's still working on getting back to being the marquez. That we knew before and there had been a lot of mistakes along the way. Some like last week's run running with martine totally avoidable. That's actually more concerning than the ones that weren't avoidable. But the speed is returning and we already saw what he was capable of back in germany when he gets to attract where he really feels. Confident and arrogant isn't quite saxon. Ring for mark in that respect but is pretty close me and he's really really good here and i think that that confidence in the track combined with speed that seems to be increasing each every round is going to make markelle podium contender. As long of course as he doesn't make any big mistakes now another writer they could easily give fabio run for his money sunday..

"But i would say that his body position is more of a hybrid of past and present writers. He doesn't sit up quite as far as someone like colin edwards. Who was really for me. The last of the old school riders in terms of style. But i would compare him to like dany pedrosa especially early dani pedrosa in all sort of been speaks. He's got a little bit of that elbows flare going on there. He gets his chin right up over the windscreen and canada shoves his elbows out. It's very ben speeds like you know. Dami probably would've looked exactly the same way. Except he was too short to get his elbows out there too far And of course that style worked out pretty well for daily petrosa. So i would say it's still possible to be fast to mow. Gp without your shoulders dragging on the pavement. He certainly proof of that. A by lester wondered how hard it is for. Young riders to learn silverstone and the reason that violator brought that up is because of our discussion on the pre ratio where there are so many writers who really didn't have any or hardly any moto. Gp experience at silverstone because so many races have been cancelled over the past couple of years there. And i mean joe amir we talked about this on the pre ratio. His last race at silverstone last weekend was emoto three some that prompted him to wonder how well young riders learned to track like silverstone where they may be having seen it hardly at all and mapped it out in numbers and of course i love numbers And the numbers you posted are kind of interesting because there's a wide variety of results. Some of them not surprising that guys like mark and valentino danny petrosa dwell in their first ever ride around silverstone. Although i'm assuming that you may have just done entire british gp which means donnington as well before two thousand ten for a few of those guys because rossi and producer they rode their first british gp at donnington But there are fair amount of riders. They're more recent ones that did start their motor. Gb career at silverstone with middling or even bad results. And i think that would be characteristic of a lotta tracks. I think if you met that out for every track you would find a similar variety of some writers doing really well and some writers not so much. It's really far. More of a tossup for a motive gp writer their first time around especially when a motogp bike because it varies by rider and their method and some riders just seemed to get along better with some tracks and some have very unique way of learning a new track. The first time they get to it. I mean some of you may know that. Ben speeds for instance he used to look at attract map and then figure out. What kind of animal look like so phillip island for instance looked like a kitten lying on. Its back so then he would go out there and just visualize writings. motorcycle around. The giant kitten laguna seca. T. rex going wrong and so on and so forth all right. Those of you who've been around long enough to know exactly what i'm talking about but those who don't all you have to do is go to youtube and type in the ben speeds method and then enjoy by the way that's the second been speeds reference in like the last three minutes. Anyway all right. Let's get back to the race here. andreas asked a very simple question about the marc marquez. Where he martina incident which we didn't talk about too much on the post ratio. What would have happened. If that had been joined. Zarko that run into where. Hey martine instead of marquess. And i think that's a fair point because if that had been showing zarco with his history and his reputation absolutely bene- penalty in the end. But i do think that race direction absolutely would have announced to everybody that the incident was under review at the very minimum. But we talked about this the couple of weeks ago. I think it was the more famous the more successful. You are the more leeway. Get especially if you don't have that reputation that somebody likes arco has and that's not a knock against mark saying that he did something shady and got away with it. I mean he himself admitted after the race he messed up and he was way too fast into the corner. Not expecting that martin would be there some. It was a mistake. But if that is arco way more of a chance that there's some sort of response from the stewards at the very least to review. Maybe some sort of penalty in the next round. Which of course would have been this weekend at aragon as side note. Andreas also loved the fact that there were six manufacturers in the top six slots he says. Hey that's good stuff for the show and you're absolutely right. It is good for competition and it certainly makes things more fun for me to talk about for all of us to talk about when there are more riders capable of finishing at the front. Battling for a podium. Us biotech said that he was pretty sure. The petco bag is disappointing. Showing it silverstone was probably down to the tires. He got an alpha octane. Said the petco. One hundred percent agree posting link where he said that the retiree got was the compound he thought was best the soft but the particular tire he was issued by michelin was not good and the bike was sliding from him in the corners He then pointed to some other riders and other instances where the michelin's have been inconsistent saying that. That was the cause of jack. Miller's problems in austria and valentino rossi and silverstone also complained. Obviously the tires aren't all complete. Junk right i mean someone won the race and that someone believe had soft- software attire three guys finished on the podium and none of those guys were complaining about tire so michelin can make a tire. That's capable of performing well making it to the end of the race but that doesn't mean that consistency can be an issue here and the problem is that's an issue that's really hard to track down because if there are consistency problems. You really don't know about it until they happen until you're the one in a race and the tires just aren't working. The way they had the rest of the weekend michelin obviously is going to be a little bit defensive about this. There aren't necessarily going to admit that problems do exist and admit that there's a chance you could get a crap tire for the race but it is something to watch for the rest of the season and see if it does affect anybody else now. The good news is that michelin dibba respond. A few weeks back in austria. Remember when miguel olivera had those chunking problems and they were placed. That speck of tire didn't help me gal in that race i mean it was too late for him but at least they are responding. It just remains to be seen if these are isolated incidents or if it's something that's going to crop up again and that kind of prompted jose to say. Hey the solution here is simple modo. Gp just needs more than one tire manufacturer. Now for those who haven't been around a long time. It's been one manufacturer for a while. Can't remember exactly the two thousand twelve. I can't remember exactly how long it was before michelin was bridgestone. Before that tire wars man everything was open and to go back there a bit of a pandora's box now. I don't necessarily disagree. Because in addition to petco back ni- being upset after silverstone with the tires we've seen ktm struggle with the fronts. That are too soft. And you know i would think that valentine rossi would say things haven't been the same for him. Since the manufacturer switched from bridgestone is a single tire supplier to michelin now. The advantage of bringing back more tire manufacturers even just.

You can grow up to a foot long jeez in her eating up to three, like almost 4000 seabird chicks every year, so they're just feasting on these things.

She lost all sense of you know what's what's wild and what's protecting yourself, protecting herself and preservation. She had her kids and all these and the people are swimming in the lake and stuff. And the mom and the Bears her and the kids are just Playing in the water to and not paying attention to the humans. Now I would have left. Yeah, watching alone right now. And, yeah, there's bears all there, and they're just like walking through it like yeah, This is where I live. This isn't where you live, Okay, get out. And And, well, speaking of this This type of thing, the wilderness. This, uh, this little kid, Did you see about this? Harvey Sutton, five year old kid. He walked the Appalachian Trail. 55. Come on. How long he, uh they left. His parents wanted to do it and they took him with him. So that's In case you didn't know it's almost 2200 Miles. Starts as Springer Mountain, Georgia and ends in Maine. Obviously He was four years old when he and his parents started walking in January. And he turned five just before the family completed the journey last week in Maine. So say it. It takes like six months if you're going on like a decent clip, so right Imagine how five it's a five year old The, uh little Harvey Yeah, he couldn't enjoy too much, And this is true. As soon as they he finishes the trip. He starts kindergarten. Oh, man. Look, Dude, I was honoured to know if I was relax on the beach. I don't know if I was out of training pants when I was five. Uh uh, So yeah, he was talking about the absurd, hard work, he said, but he had fun, checking out the frogs and lizards and other wildlife. He was sprinkling skittles onto peanut butter tortillas. To keep himself occupied. The rock scrambles were really hard and fun. We were not born, he said. So we need. I wonder if we could dig all Harvey up. This is from an interview. He did.

"Gp that's not really all that surprising of note matteo baiocco. I hope i said his name. Right was the test rider for filling in for allie spargo. Who still recovering from that semi problematic arm pump surgery. He had a few weeks back now when we look at the time chart here the same. Disclaimer applies whenever we have a test. You can't always read too much into single app times especially in a one day test like this because everybody has a different agenda for what they wanted to accomplish. And not all of those goals necessarily include going out there and making time attack now as we look at the manufacturer's suzuki do coty and apprecia- while they were the most boring participants in this test focusing mainly on settings and consistency so once again for another one day test just like they did back in says do county doesn't bring anything wild and crazy but that's okay because ktm made up for everyone in the cool new stuff department by showing up with a lot of toys to play with the factory guys rolled out a preliminary version of what's being referred to as the twenty twenty two bike the factory riders. Were calling it a prototype for next year that bycatch a revised chassis or vice swing arm and tail section as well as a new exhaust. But we don't know anything about what was under the ferrings. Whether there was a new engine they were playing with were if they were testing all of the new stuff with their existing engine and nobody was really saying much more than what the parts were. Look forward to next season and then on top of that miguel. Olivera did add that there were a few different configurations of frame and swing arm that they tested as well tech three got in on the fun to with both danilo petrucci Getting their first shot at the new frame. That miguel and brad have run the past few rounds to massively increase success. Although danilo said that his improvement with a new chassis was only minor because according to danilo most of his current issues really have to deal with his size and weight transferring too much onto the rear tire and causing rear grip issues. And that makes sense. I mean presumably chassis designed in conjunction with the very smart flight danny petrosa and then tweaked for ideal implementation by the still pretty small olivera and bender would probably still need further tweaking for a rider. The size of danilo petrucci not gonna go into what that means for him going forward with ktm but that does make sense that the fray may not magically change things for him the way it seemed to for both brad bender miguel olivera but with all of that twenty twenty two bike tech three riders. Getting the first shot at the current new frame. None of that on the ktm front was the interesting part. The interesting part with the new era. Bits debuted by the austrian factory in a throwback to her. Hey lorenzo circa two thousand thirteen at phillip island or and early nineties honda. Cpr ktm literally showed up with some plastic or carbon fiber for that matter full of holes. A lot of holes all the way down the leading edge of the faring. Now on top of that. Let's see here. The new bodywork also incorporated a scoop. It's very back of the faring. About halfway down right around the rider's knee angling air a little bit upwards towards the tail and then a scoop at the back of the faring all the way at the bottom now. I'm not exactly like the do coty. They've got that scoop now at the lower front portion of the faring for ktm. It's at the back. And that seems to be directing air to a swing arm that features a rear fender that actually extends down the sides of the arm itself at this point. You probably want to look at a picture. I'm describing it to keep up with all of these things that they've added They also had a tail. Section that was notably curved downward or the current ktm tail section is kind of flat and most manufacturers angle. There's up into a point a little bit and can junction with that. Downward curve of the retail section the seat had a very hard crease. The kind of formed a contoured scoop in the body itself that seem to channel air along the tail maybe working in conjunction with that scoop that sitting midway up the fairing and they appeared to have a more pronounced chin spoiler to and some gigantic scoops on the front brake rotor. I think that's it. I think i got all of it in there. Although i'm sure there's something that i miss book go look at the picture of that new aero kit that they debuted was enough bodywork to make even gee-gee delina proud now whether all of that new stuff worked or not well again. Nobody was really saying and they certainly weren't doing serious enough. Time attacks with those new bits to tip us off on the time sheet whether they were making big strides or not but it was all pretty wild and they were definitely the star of the task when it came to rolling out new stuff By comparison yamaha did have some new parts but they didn't seem very exciting side by side with ktm There was a carbon swing arm on offer for maverick fan. Y'all as something that yamaha's gone back and forth with multiple times as the tried to get the right formula for that part other than that. There wasn't anything terribly. Exciting going on with the outside valentine rossi and prakash morbidelli trying out some slotted brake rotors and i don't think they were the only ones i think there were a couple of teams that try out the new slotted brembos. Brake rotors bought from advocate. Least obviously the settings changes that they worked on. Maybe the swing arm. I know made some sort of difference with him topping the time she'd although take that with a grain of salt and let's be honest single app times aren't really what yamaha struggling with right now anyways evidenced by charo race pace is the big issue here especially when it comes to maverick and valentino now. Honda was the most active manufacturer in the session. In terms of time spent on track mark marquez ran eighty seven laps in this test. Coursey didn't expend too much energy on sunday. So i guess he had some leftover but one way or the other. That's great news for him..

109-year-old spent his final years knitting tiny sweaters for injured penguins
"Wanted to start today's conversation with a bit of a heartwarming story upward the DOT com and the title is one hundred and nine year olds spent his final years knitting tiny sweaters for injured penguins. And if this sounds like incredible and adorable, it is all of those things because it's exactly what it is A. Little sweaters knitted for penguins. On Tell you all about it at one hundred and nine years of age. This is a quote from the article. Alfred Alfie date had more than enough reasons to spend the remainder of his days living his most relaxed life guilt free however, date the oldest person in Australia at that point in time was in two, thousand, six, fifteen, sixteen I believe he chose to use his free time putting out some good into this world and he found the most doral to do so putting his generous and still nimble fingers to good use. The centenarian volunteered to use his knitting skills to help protect little penguins exposed to oil spills which prevent them from staying dry. So he actually had been knitting since nineteen, thirty two. And he says the article he says I think I'd been in here at the retirement home for about twelve hours might have been thirteen before two of the nurses came to me and said, we believe you can it and then they asked him to start knitting sweaters for these penguins. And, it's for this program called knits for nature which helps Rehabilitate Ping. Wins who've been exposed to oil spills and basically the knitted sweaters keep the pink from. Their beak from like being able to like lick or like get their hands on these covered feathers because obviously ingesting that oil would be deadly. Oil also damages their feathers and it makes them more susceptible to colds. Nets for nature is an initiative of the Philip Islands Penguin Foundation which raises money to protect and support Philip Islands wildlife and according to the website. The last major oil spill near Phillip Island was actually in two thousand one, four, hundred, thirty, eight penguins were affected ninety six percent were saved. Thanks to these jumpers. Sweaters are known like England Indiana Australia. So he was knitting sweaters for them up until his death at the age of one, hundred and ten in two thousand sixteen website has a special place dedicated to him. I just thought this was a nice and uplifting way to start this week's conversation. If you WANNA learn more you can go to Penguin Foundation Org dot a U and you can even when you go there you can download your own rehabilitation jumper pattern and start knitting yourself

A 400 year battery
"Hi everyone. There's an old saying that luck happens when preparation meets opportunity and there's no better example of that than twenty sixteen discovery at the university of California Irvine by doctoral student. Maya Li fi after playing around in the lab, she made a discovery that could lead to a rechargeable battery that could last up to four hundred years that means longer-lasting laptops and smartphones, and fewer lithium ion batteries piling up in landfills. A team of researchers at UCI had been experimenting with Nanno wires for potential use in batteries, but found that over time, the thin fragile wires would break down and crack after too many charging cycles. But one day on a whim. Psycho did a set of Goldman wires in magnesium dioxide and a plexiglass like electrolyte gel. She came back a few days later and said, it's been cycling for thirty. Thousand cycles that kept going on for over a month. This discovery is mind blowing because the average laptop battery last for about three hundred to five hundred charge cycles. The Nando battery developed at UCI made it through two hundred thousand cycles within three months that would extend the life of the average laptop battery to about four hundred years. The rest of the device would have probably gone kaput decades before the actual battery, but the implications for a battery that lasts hundreds of years are pretty startling. Two years later and battery tech is growing in leaps and bounds with the adoption of fast wireless charging and lower battery requirements from our devices. It's already easy to forget about power storage, but we are now on the verge of a battery revolution that will see our phones last for a week on a charge and two naval very. Small batteries to power larger devices at it seems like the future is going to be built in Nanno wires

The The common common challenge challenge all all these these models models still still face face though though is is the the lack lack of of range range that that could could be be about about to to to source source change. However, it's difficult to increase the range on an electric motorcycle to achieve that you need a bigger battery capable of storing, more energy, bigger battery means bigger frame and easy equation that results in a bulky, electric power train. At this point you might as well throw in a few. Hugh more wheels for balance, steering wheel for good measure and call it now. I don't know a car, a group of engineering students from the university of Zurich in Switzerland has actually managed to produce a one off. Motorcycle with a staggering electric range of two hundred and fifty miles. In addition to the range, the bike has a built in quick charge system that can top off its battery in about an hour. The prototype was designed for a school project that challenged the fourteen students to experience all the steps of product development. The result is the all electric ethic. The design is pretty brutal, but it serves its purpose. The mono body unit is a quipped with a massive, lithium ion fifteen kilowatt hour battery. The group explains that the front wheel, braking, dissipate seventy five percent of the energy. So it addressed this reality by adding a front wheel hub motor that will recall. Operate the energy that's dissipated despite its minimalistic look and it's a labyrinth technology. The ethic does retain more classical motorcycle elements, including a lightweight to frame a proper swing arm and a trapezoidal fork out the front of it. Obviously, at this point, there is no talk of production, but the students in Genuity could definitely find some real world applications after all would be easy to market at electric. Motorcycle with the two hundred and fifty mile range, which is more than most gasoline models can travel right now. Hopefully we'll get to see this idea make its way to production. Just please let a design student have a go at it as well. Hyperloop transport faces, many, many hurdles, but until now, how cows can cross the track hasn't really been one of them, but that's going to change as Canadian company. Trans pod sets up its testing facility in a village deep in the French countryside. The current record for high-speed t GV trains could be shattered in the tiny commune of drove in central France. Last week. The company applied for planning permission, which it expects to be granted sometime this year. Hyperloop technology much publicized by Ilan. Musk's enthusiasm involves putting passengers or goods in capsules, which are then projected through depressurized tubes at up to twelve hundred kilometers an hour in their search for the perfect test zone. Transplants researchers hit on the Perez to Lou corridor, which. Has no high speed rail line, but they identified eight, three kilometers stretch of an old now, disused railway passing through farmland transplants, founder and chief executive told, euro news that the project has the backing of both residents and local authorities, but admits they've had to build some quirky demands into their planning application. For example, a farmer who has land on either side of the line wanted them to develop a pathway for animals as little. As you're ago Gendron the founder said that he doubted that anyone in Europe would want to invest in hyperloop technology. Now, investors have committed sixty five million euros transport. Also plans to build a research and development center in southern Italy got some spare time this weekend. Why not build yourself a working Rover from plants provided by NASA, the space Knicks at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have all the plans. Code and materials for you to pursue and use. Just make sure you've got an extra twenty five hundred bucks and a bit of engineering know how this thing isn't made out of Lincoln logs. The story is this after curiosity landed on Mars, GPO wanted to create something a little smaller and less complex that it could use for educational purposes. So they created rove e. That's what they're calling it anyway. Traveled with GPL staff throughout the country and showed off what it was capable of unsurprisingly. Among the many questions asked was often whether a class group could actually built one of their very own. The answer unfortunately was no though far less expensive and complex than a real Mars Rover. Roe v was still too expensive and complex to be a class project. So GPL engineers decided to go back to the drawing board and build one that was less. Expensive. The result is the JPL open source Rover may set of plans that mimic the key components of curiosity, but are simpler and use off the shelf components. The OS are uses curiosity like suspension corner, steering and pivot differential, allowing movement over rough terrain and the brain is a raspberry pi.

WalMart supercenter really isn't much fun, but what if you could do it from the comfort of your own home through virtual reality, the world's biggest retailer wants to find out according to filings with the US patent and trademark office. The company has applied for two patents that detail a virtual showroom and fulfillment center that would connect shoppers clad in VR headsets and censor packed gloves to a three dimensional representation of a WalMart. Store customers could wander digital aisles from home and grab items, which would be immediately picked up and shipped from a fully automated distribution center. The filing is part of WalMart's recent push into virtual reality and area that holds promise for brick and mortar retailers struggling with the massive costs associated with store upkeep and labor. This could be a godsend in February the retailer acquired spatial land a startup that makes software tools to create virtual reality experiences. Spatial land is housed inside walmarts in house tech incubator store number eight, which last year hosted a v. commerce gala in Los Angeles, Agadi affair by WalMart standards that celebrated the five Witters of WalMart competitions to find the best ideas in the space. WalMart is moving aggressively into the digital realm at the same time that Amazon and other technology. He companies are looking to establish a brick and mortar presence. Amazon acquired whole foods market last year and is also opening cashier 'less stores. While Google is planning a retail flagship store in Chicago. WalMart has filed more than a dozen virtual reality patents. But it's focus has shifted from using VR for internal business, say virtual conference calls to more external shopper focused applications. You used any of the portable bluetooth speakers on the market? A have gone through several over the years myself, but they all left me fairly unimpressed with both be sound and their battery life. I've had all portable bluetooth speakers in the same category. It's a great way to share your music on the go, but they're only slightly better than the mono speaker phone on most smartphones. Now I'm revising that thought in recommending the j. b. l. flip Ford.

I was a radio engineer for several years and win. I needed speakers. I always turn to JBL. Their sound is always exceptional with base. You can feel even in their smallest monitor speakers for studios. The flip four holds true to the JBL sound even with its microscopic size. It's smaller than your insulated coffee mug, but weighs in at one point, one pounds. It has a three thousand middle amp hour battery that JBL says, can last for twelve hours. Now intesting I was able to use it for thirteen to fifteen hours depending on how loud it was. And the performance seemed to get a little better. Each time I recharge the device with the first test going just twelve and a half hours thirteen on the second and fifteen on the third. Now, it's very hard to test a speaker at full volume with for twelve hours, especially when you're married and have the kid.

Juno Becomes World's First Graphene Skinned Plane
"The recent Farnborough airshow 2018, aerospace engineers from Britain's university of central land casher presented what they stayed is the world's first graphene skinned aircraft known as the Juneau the three point five meter wide unmanned plane could be a sign of things to come developed in partnership with the Sheffield, advanced manufacturing research centre, the university of Manchester's national graphing institute. And hi, Dale graphing industries, judo additionally, features graphing based batteries and three d. printed components. It's skin, though is where the real action is consisting of one atom thick layers of linked carbon atoms. Graphene is not only the world's strongest man made material, but it also is high. Highly conductive both thermally and electrically because it's so strong. An outer covering of it adds strength to conventional fuselage material, which then allows for less of those materials to be used leading to significant wheat reductions. And as a result aircraft, incorporating such skins could carry heavier payloads without using more fuel or fly for longer distances on a given amount of fuel. Additionally, because graphing thermal conductivity allows heat to spread throughout the material. It's not prone to ice build up. And finally, the electrical conductivity of graphene causes the energy of lightning strikes to be dispersed throughout the surface of the fuselage as opposed to causing damage throughout localized heating in one area. Not much else is known at this time except engineers planned to conduct tests flights of Juneau over the next two months. And of course keep you updated. As soon as I hear
