How to Promote Genuine Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
"Guest is michelle silverthorn. Michelle is a recognized organizational diversity expert and the founder and ceo of inclusion nation where she works with fortune five hundred companies tech startups nonprofits and universities to design authentic inclusive spaces designed on equity belonging and authenticity. Michelle is a graduate of princeton university and the university of michigan law school. She's also a ted speaker and author of the book. Authentic diversity how to change the workplace for good welcome to business confidential now. Michelle thank you so much for having me. I'm so happy to be here. One happy to have you because the subject of diversity and inclusion is more important than ever. And i'm so delighted to have you join me today. Because the idea of diversity being a good thing in business has been around for decades but when it comes to making things happen to delivering on the goods on the promises it feels like they're still so much room for considerable improvement. Why do you think organizations keep failing at diversity and that's a really great question. I think the challenge for a lot of organizations. They don't prioritize it. You know they say that ben prioritizing it they say that it's important to them but one of the activities typically have folks do when i'm doing my training with them. Is you know you think of a problem. I whatever your challenges when it comes to diversity in you know i tell. I've talked a lot about black people in the workplace. One is we don't have enough black executive right until you think that's your challenge. The reason is because there's a broken pipeline right. But then what i asked my attendees to do is to ask why five times so there's a broken pipeline wise and then ask why again because we're not recruiting at the rate schools because our executives think that you'll never recruit that these five schools because they are only comfortable hiring people from these schools because they only work with the people who attend these schools and by the time you get to the fifth. Why then you get to the underlying issue. That's really underlying all of that. But for a lot of people are going to get to that six or seven played the because our leaders don't prioritize it. They aren't willing to commit the resources. They aren't willing to commit the people they aren't willing to take the rest and when we aren't willing to do that. We're just gonna keep on falling behind on birthday and inclusion
Kaley & Nate Klemp - How To Be A Good Partner
"Two wonderful guests for you today. Not one but two nate and kaley clump. They're an amazing couple. That together co-authored the new book. The eighty eighty marriage a new model for a happier stronger marriage. Both of them are also incredible in their own. Right nate is actually one of the founders of a company that's partnered with mindful dot org. He's a phd from princeton university. And is the author of start here. Master the lifelong habit of wellbeing. So he's deeply steeped in mindfulness. Kelly is an amazing expert. On small group dynamics and leadership development her books include the fifteen commitments of conscious leadership. The drama free office. And let's say you could make a drama free office. You can probably make a drama free marriage and she created the thirteen guidelines for effective teams so between the two of them. They're here today to talk about the amazing power of bringing mindfulness into your relationship and how to have a happier one. Welcome nate and kelly. Which for having us here so happy to be here. It is my joy and pleasure. Let's start by talking first of all about what it's like to work together as a couple. You guys wrote a book together. You co create. tell me about it. It's a funny thing. Because i think initially. We had a semi conscious agreement to never worked together. We have created separate worlds as you described each pursuing our own areas and then it was really this project around marriage that clearly. We're doing as a joint project and our life and recognize that. Initially nate was going to write this book as a solo author which we thought was going to be really interesting but thought that it would actually be more powerful to do together so now working together living together parenting together being married there is a lot of together and i think that makes all the tools we talk about even more

"We speak to this moment is hundred. Thirty light years wet hundred ladies. Okay ed so just to sit. Set context The the star or nearest started begin c. alpha alpha singer. Alison tari back. There are three stars in that system. They're all out yet. Four point three light years away just four point three light years so we have because some stars that see by naked eye a few light years away and and the closest one beacon of see. Because it's too dim right when you look at the night sky without telescopes with just your eyes you see i know thousand or so bright stars but those are not the nearest stars what happens in stars whi range uprightness of luminosity as some stars are tens of thousands of times more luminous than sun. And so you can see those things much farther away than you would be able to see some mike stop. And that's what host of the stars in the sky over lewis giant stars. The most common kind of star like you said is tiny. Little red dwarf star that i have one ten thousandth of the luminosity of the sun. And they're very calm. They outnumbers unlike stars but we hardly any with our naked is in fact there might be a few But they do not call attention to themselves and so so. Hr eighty seven. Ninety nine is something that people look up on youtube and And so that's one technique that was used many parameters have to fall in place for that but there are more calmer methods said to us to identify exoplanets. Yes most of the great majority of those forty five hundred known exoplanets came from two different not imaging as you said before those that are more indirect we do not see planet we do not receive any light from the plan that we can distinguish we track the light from the star as precisely as possible and we use that dr knowledge physics to deduce the existence of the planet and in fact sometimes we can make progress we can even measure the mass size of the platitude in a few percent. Even though we can't see it. So what the methodist conceptually simplest because based on eclipses moon goes in front of the sun. We get relief. Dramatic solar eclipse in. Skyros are a little while but sometimes venus or mercury will pass in front of the sun and nothing really happens you have to be told by astronomers taking place because you never noticed because venus or mercury only block a small percentage of the sun's light yet but we're getting really good at monitoring the brightness of stars precisely and so if something like that were to happen to distance store we can. We can tell. So that's that's idea is that you wait for planets orbit to carry it directly in front of the star as viewed from our position in the galaxy and notice that the star. Here's why we feature right to make it practical. You need the stock. The move at some reasonable speed racing. You have to mesh up before the star Is in front of the saudi before the planet is incentives. The star afterward ed. So so the orbital of durations. I think it's going to be important for the measurement this right if you were looking back at the time from honor light years away from some alien planet with with telescope similar to ours any if you were just the right place to see the earth crossing france. What would happen first of all happens. Once a year he said me monitoring it pretty continuously order to catch it happening. it only lasts for. I think it's ten to twelve hours. And during that event you would see son fainter by about hundred parts per million relatively small. So that's the game. You look for these short duration dinner events by monitoring hundreds of thousands of stars in any as you can as precisely as continuously as possible. So so what does sort of the the distribution jar of that forty five hundred a not. Have it handy. But so so what's the maximum orbital Duration cabin brands so the methods that we have our best at picking up plants that are very close very tight orbits around star with short orbital periods. Superior is the time it takes to go all the way around and so most of last now about have orbital periods shorter than a month or two months. And that's kind of remarkable. We didn't know that such planets zits in the solar system. The closest planet to the south is mercury and mercury takes eight days to go around and we think that was pretty close most of the planets that we have available to now much closer to their star than murder areas. Two of them have periods of just a day or even i think the record holders about five hours over there are planets that are about as close as it is physically possible to be their star. Yes these These variables have related right so the orbited the distance on the saw the star the mass of the planet and mass of the star.

Old question of that are other planets capable of supporting life. His group uses optical telescopes to study exponentially systems especially those star and planet eclipse one. Another belco josh. Hello having sure. Yeah so i went to a used one of your papers. Do of the context for our conversation. And it's entitled the oakland's architecture of excellently systems in which you say the basic geometry of the solar system the shave spacings orientations of the plant. We orbits kessle long been a subject of fascination as long as Well as inspiration for planet formation theories for excellent systems those same properties have only recently come to come into focus. So you know this paper in twenty fifteen And i think there has been a lot of exoplanet discoveries right so what. What does count now. How many exoplanets have you flown. So far the closest thing would official count we have has about four thousand five hundred extra planets. Four thousand five hundred and it's all over the place And in general that would imagine that some limitations beyond which we cannot really find them. So could you could you sort of set the Set the context for that. Are that three different methods by which we find them Could you describe those at webster. Sort of the maximum distance we can target fight it exoplanet. Yeah you're right to begin with the technology because this is a very technology driven field yet there have been speculations since the ancient greeks about whether the other are like the sun and whether those stars have planets and at seemed increasingly plausible as the centuries went on and we learn. More and more strongly would really wasn't until the mid nineties that this field of x plant science scott going and that's entirely because of limitations in our ability to measurements yet answer. The measurements are well. The first thing you might think of doing if you wanna find a planet coming around another star is to use some big telescope and make image of the art and then look for the little dots going around start at the very direct method. Fortunately it's also extremely difficult and it has worked but only barely in a few cases. You actually see the planet has a little dot of its own. Watch the Blocks distance approximately bear. We can actually actually image planet the distance from from us from our scale so we reckon distances we one way to measure distances in light years. Yes That light travels in a year and the nearest stars are few. Let's say or tan light years away. And most of the exoplanets we know about our within a few thousand light years and with with with the more being on closer to us that far away and that's again for practical reasons. It's much easier to perform the necessary measurements if you have a star and then it a nearby star so we clearly quickly lose the ability to detect planets. If they're all the way across the galaxy we were really exploring our tiny little neighborhood of the galaxy but even Even thousand light years so you can actually a planet at that. I think the ones that have been emerged are are closer than that. Mitt me maybe fifty two hundred years ago. I would have to look it up to be sure. Maybe maybe several hundred that sounds like a lot or a little too you to to most ordinary non-scientists. It's distance louis mentioned bodily distant. Yeah stronger that is really next door. There are astronomers who study things that are name many times yes so so. I was just sort of looking at the finding an image at that distance from an earth based oath based Is now the biggest issue as su- is the stalled itself like star so bright anything around said Becomes difficult. So i know that there are some techniques that allows you do actually actually fee doubt the light coming from the star to to actually see the planet's Is that possible. Yes so the basic problem is that we cannot focus oranges as tightly as we might want and some of his make into the to the laws of optics that is this phenomenon called. Diffraction that whenever you interrupt a lightwave with a telescope then lightwave develops curvature of that is boring of the image in your camera and so that's kind of an irreducible problem. And it means that if there is a tiny little dog right next the star than the blur of the star will overlap the dot from the planet. We won't be able to see it so one approach is to just make tighter entire images in one way to do that is to have larger and larger telescopes because the blurring factor in principle those down with large telescopes. Another way is to put your telescoping space where is possible to Make sharper images on the ground. Because on the ground in addition to the problems with optics and fraction the atmosphere salih messing up. The path of libraries and causing additional blurring are images. But then when you alluded to there are special cameras you can build that manage to zero out. The light from a very specific point in the image which star and thereby allow the surrounding area to be searched without the severe problems of the glare from the star. Those instruments are are very advanced and finicky and high tech they go Most of them go by the name of corona graph because these same kinds of instruments were originally used to image the corona the outer layers look blocking the sun's glare and they basically work by putty carefully designed obstruction to obstruction of different shapes with immolate. So as to block the light and direct flight from star to to other areas of the and prevented from reaching the detector right yummy the beauty of seeing an exit planet actively walls around the star itself as a is a magnificent day But we have a couple of other other techniques. Do not to see them but at least to Sort of Speculate the excess. Do say exists. They did this before we leave. The topic of i want to direct your your listeners to particular video that i think every human being should watch you need to look up. The name of the star. It's age are eight seven. Nine nine does very glamorous name. I use a new tune elsewhere. You will find a movie of four planets as tiny little dots circling around of a small portion of their orbits around this nearby star.

So i i want to start with one of your earlier papers. And it's entitled basic analysis of the astro biological implications of life's early emergence on earth. Invite you say life arose on earth sometime in the first few hundred million years after the young planet had cooled the point that it would It could support what water-based sounds on its surface. The early emergence of life on earth has been taken as evidence that the probability of biogenesis is high. If starting from young like conditions now justice had the context So the solar system about five billion years old the earth itself about four point five billion years old and and i guess we have some evidence that life originated around three point eight billion years ago. Some something along those lines. Yes that's low. Those numbers are all roughly correct. They're they're not absolutely certain. But the The general consensus view. Is that as you said. The are formed about four point. Five billion years old but a a rain of of so-called heavy impacts meaning objects meteors and asteroids and small objects in the early solar system. Not every much a much greater abundance of these objects still crashing into the planets and helping them form Probably heated and perhaps reheated the earth's surface these were huge impacts Deposit energy that was you know. Millions of times like the energy of all the nuclear weapons people have ever built an vaporize the ocean and probably sterilize the earth if if life had gotten started by that point all of those statements are you can look slightly different scenarios. The evidence for them is not. I would say incontrovertible that that looks like the best we know so about three point nine or three point eight billion years ago said call it three point nine billion years ago and the early evidence earliest evidence of life that we have is. Your site goes back to about three point eight billion years ago. It's fairly uncertain might have. There's i think uncontroversial evidence at about three point five billion years ago so we don't know exactly when life got started but of course it got started earlier than evidence in another words the very first life must have appeared in a long before while not long before but before You know there was something that left a record of the fossil or chemical signature. Yes that we can identify so we don't know how early it started but it was certainly within say a couple of hundred million years possibly much less than great so a few years give or take But but the but that's really really quick so the puzzle That human scabs struggling with is one of the the flu be paradox..

He's also particularly interested in quasars powered by supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. Welcome Michael. I'm very happy to be here. Thank you so much. Thanks for doing this so I want to start with. One of one of the papers a little bit older papers talking about costs logical parameters from SDS W map. So, you say the measure cost logical parameters using the three dimensional power spectrum from over two hundred, thousand galaxy in the slow in digital sky survey SDS says in combination with Wilkinson Microwave and isotope.

Have Produce Lot of data SPF started sometime in two thousand, two, thousand trend. Had A long tenure, twenty years with multiple upgrades to it. Ended W map sort of overlap with it between two thousand and two, thousand ten or so before Branca's satellite, kick them right after that. So we have. Two sets of data and and really kind of combining these two data. Looking at. Some of the. That are being more accepted nowadays. So talk a bit about the type of data that we got and. You know what hypotheses we could create some that. Okay. So perhaps, I can just say in general terms what the what the scientific program there is and what are. Just to try to explain how W MAPPING SDSS connected. So what s Tsn let's start with SDSS. So what SDSS? Was designed to do and did was to measure the distances and therefore well to measure what are called Red Shifts. which is a shift in the spectrum of a of a galaxy caused by the expansion of the universe. By measuring these shifts, which is straightforward. If you can measure the spectrum of of the galaxy, you can determine how far away that galaxy is and so one needs to remember that in when one looks at an astronomical image or looks at the sky in general, you're seeing everything as a as it appears in two dimensions. It's all in projection in you. Okay and if you see a star or galaxy or anything asteroid, you don't know. At first glance, which is relatively nearby, which is far away..

He's been featured everywhere from the New York Times to the Atlantic wire popular science and Adam also has a PhD in social psychology from Princeton University where he focused on how people reach the judgments and make the decisions that shaped their lives, and now we're gonNA dive into this awesome powerful important conversation with Adam Alter Adam. Welcome to the model show. Thanks for hanging out with us today. Yeah. Thanks for having me Sean, good to be. So I've got to ask you first and foremost I want to know your superhero origin story because this topic is so palpable. So important but how in the world did you find yourself interested in this domain with tech in how it's kind of relating to our lives? I think the super the Superhero, the super power for an academic is that when we get interested in things that other people get interested in, we can actually studied them and that's what happened with me. I I. Think a lot of people were talking about tech, the encroachment of tech in their lives especially that personalized know I was sitting on the couch next to my wife, we'd spend two hours on our phones. We wouldn't be interacting with each other I remember being on a flight between New York and La, and I don't even remember the flight because I opened a video game on my phone. was an APP plated six hours landed and was like what just happened time melted away. So I think a lot of people probably millions of people who are experiencing some version of that in the roughly two, thousand, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen. But for me it, it was something that I had the capacity to actually study to investigate, and so I did I started to look into it and had a few critical questions like am I the only one experiencing this? The answer was very clearly no What what else is gripping us this way in what should we do about? It is something to be concerned about and that's how I got interested probably six or seven years ago. Yes and it through even through that time. Can you talk about first and foremost for us? Like you said is not you're not alone by a long shot but how has our investment in our time grown from? Prior, you know somebody just here in the studio, one of my guys and he wants to get a flip phone now since the flip phone to now, how is our investment time grown over time to getting on the Internet in in Tech? Yes. So we spent we spent about eighteen minutes touch to phones before the first iphone before two thousand seven. So you gave up like a stood of an hour everyday to your fun, which is not that much time some time but it's not that much time. Now today the average for an adult in the United States and it's very similar across the. Developed world is about four hours. So it's it's increased by a factor of about twelve thirteen fourteen and if you if you imagine that being expanded across the lifespan, we're talking between ten and twenty years of your life depending on whether you're alive or heavy user of the fun. So you're giving up effectively one or two decades of your life to this device. Unbelievable and the thing is even when you say that number I bet so many people like well, that's not me. How can you quantify that because a lot of people feel the same way until they get tracked, they think that they may be fifty percent of the time that they actually do. It's true in two thousand fifteen reached out to this guy who created now colt moment and Marmon was one of the first really sophisticated track is that to what you were doing on your phone how much time he was spending occasionally you get these Ping, sang a you happy with your engagement right now and he he said to me. Before you use it before you install it on your phone and tell me what do you think how long do you think spending on your phone and? He said to me most people have no idea and that was true for me too I guest and so I guess like. I thought an hour but just to be concerned about her I said, how about ninety minutes I'll say ninety minutes a day and I started using this track and was three three and a half hours a day. So I was I was under estimating by more than half and I said to him that's crazy that I have no idea how much time I'm giving up and it's such a lot of the white indict and he said it's totally typical most of us are using twice or even three times more than we think we are.
Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?
"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere.

Issued Omega Coppola and a letter in which he argued that Princeton still events racism, He wrote that racism and the damage it does to people of color. Nevertheless persist at Princeton is in our society. Racist assumptions from the past also remain embedded in the structures of this university. Now. First of all, it's a stupid thing to write, because you're in charge. If there's racism, there it comes and stops at your desk. It's your fault. Why haven't you fixed it? I guess it's just that white privilege that you've been depending on to save you, right. You've seen letters like this from? I don't know how many places things along this line there. They criticize their own organizations where we pick up change. And we flagellating beat our own backs. Raul with all the Oh, we're so sorry about what has shut up all of you. Let me tell you, we're just briefly. The organization you're supporting. Had people outside a hospital where two deputies had been shot and those people were yelling. I hope they die. I don't support that. And yet if I want to watch an MBA game, I have to see that miserable organisation's name printed on the court. Not interested anymore. I don't need the MBA that much. All right. So this guy writes this letter. He's just self flagellating. All this university is just the worst place ever. My God, We're just We're horrible, horrible people. Well. On Wednesday, the Department of Education run by Betsy DeVos fired off a letter to Princeton University, declaring that the university would be investigated now, saying it's concerned that Princeton's nondiscrimination an equal opportunity assurances and its program participation agreements. From 2013 to the president may have been false, in other words, to get the tens of millions of dollars in federal money. The university has to fill out program participation agreements They have to, in essence say that we have fulfilled all requirements of title six of the Civil Rights Act that declares that no person in the United States shall be on the ground of race. Color or national origin be excluded from participation in benign be denied the benefits over subjected to discrimination of any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. I'm Betsy DeVos looked at this letter probably laughed out loud because it's clearly one of these things that Theo guys just trying to keep the mob away from the front door. She said. Oh, okay, So you're saying racism persists? All right. Well, if it's systemic, as you say, then clearly that is on you, and that is on the university. And you're going to probably have to refund the tens of millions of dollars because you lied. On your government applications here. You said there was no racism. You said that you'd met all the requirements. And yet here you're saying something different? I got to be a honest with you. Don't know much about Betsy DeVos. But I said I'd marry that woman right now. I love the fact that they did this. I wish they would start doing this to every organization and send out and investigate them. And if they insist on following the idea that they're systemically racist, take all the money back to the feds. That's billions of dollars we could certainly use in the Treasury right now. I think this is Brilliant, but her parts don't ever let anybody tell you she's not great at her job. All right. So once again, it's just it's I don't believe the guy even believes is. I don't believe these organizations that write these kind of letters or say these kind of thing. I don't believe any of them believe that we're all now living in a pretend world were now pretending we're faking it. We're acting as if but nobody really believes it. And the reason they don't believe that organizations are systemically racist is because the system isn't racist Individuals can act that way. I have no doubt that there are plenty of people who have racist actions that they've taken in their lives. I don't doubt any of that. But systemically sorry, nobody..
"Hey. What's up? Welcome to in the big this is a podcast about politics race and culture. From a POC perspective I'm mighty at Sam and I'm Julia Galleria joining us today. All of us important team separate going crazy. We'd have to return all stars from Princeton. New Jersey is Dr Eddie Claude Junior James. S Mcdonnell Distinguished University professor at Princeton University Hey Eddie welcome back rose more pleasure. excited. We are so happy to have you so happy and joining us from Boston Massachusetts County. Crossley. She's host of W. H is under the radar you're on the radar for here Kelly. Welcome back. I'm so glad to be back and we're happy to have you back so. It has been a minute since the both of you have been on the show it's the first time that you're on the show in two thousand twenty, which is honestly like, wow, I know and a lot has happened since you were on this show, the coronavirus pandemic I became a survivor of the corona virus myself the movement now to defend black lives this extraordinary reckoning that's happening all across the country young people really turning up, and now the twenty twenty presidential election officially heating up amidst all of this it's been intense so Kelly start us off just what's your temperature check? How are you doing like for reals? I'm exhausted I'm exhausted physically and emotionally, and as I wrote about recently I have outraged fatigue and I'm trying to fight it Eddie. How're you doing? I'm holding on I'm just barely holding on actually it's just exhausted like Kelly. Trying to hold on tired of looking at this damn computer screen and really just trying to figure out a way to step away from this moment. You know because I'm drowning in it it's been pretty intense. It's crazy Julia for two people who feel exhausted and kind of drowning in it, I. Mean. We turn to Kelly and two Edita to help us to give context but I appreciate and this show who that we do we do let it all hang out as we used to say back in the nineteen seventies. But the point being about exhaustion I think it's important to recognize that and. Unfortunately, I feel like this level of exhaustion is going to continue because here we go twenty twenty election. And there is now a zoo meeting called the Democratic National Convention DNC which starts this week we. The. People. We the people call the forty eighth quadrennial Democratic National Convention to order. And it goes through Thursday, all our listeners. We're recording this conversation on a Monday afternoon so that you know, but you know the DNC I actually saw this video i. don't know if you saw it on twitter from Nineteen ninety-six, the DNC is starting in everyone's doing the Macarena. Acquit. On. Putting You this big Joyce Event and I remember that actually so it's going viral on twitter. Clinton's yeah yeah claims and ninety six. Oh I saw that. So anyway so they're doing them I got and I was like I remember these conventions and it's supposed to take place in Milwaukee. Obviously because pandemic, it's turned into this entirely virtual format talking about computer screens, Eddie? I'm like, oh So. What we do know is that on Thursday Joe Biden is scheduled to officially accept the nomination from his home state in Delaware on Thursday. On Monday night, the virtual convention featured speakers from former first, lady, Michelle Obama let me be as honest and clear as I possibly can. Donald Trump is the wrong president for our country. He has had more than enough time to prove that he can do the job, but he is clearly in over his head. He cannot meet this moment. He simply cannot be who we need him to be for us. It is what it is to Senator Bernie Sanders at its most basic this election is about preserving our democracy. During, this president's term, the unthinkable has become normal. He has tried to prevent people from voting undermined the US Postal Service deployed military and federal agents against peaceful protesters threatened to delay the election and suggested that he will not leave office if he loses. Is Not normal and we must never treat it like it is but you all know and we have people here who are critical of the Democratic Party like we are of the Republican Party. You've already heard the critique right that a number of the speakers like including Sanders and club HR, and Buddha judge and cory booker, all of them former candidates. So we've heard a lot from these people and one twenty twenty candidate was clearly not invited guests that was Oh let's see Mexican, who represents the largest non white voting block potential voters yes. That would be Latinos and Latinas and yes, they did not invite Julia Castro. Who is the only Latino candidate in the primaries so I mean look there are literally only a handful of Latino or Latina speakers. There are no Muslim speakers scheduled.
75 years after Hiroshima, they're still feeling its impact.
"This bomb has this frank for twenty thousand tons of TNT. Harnessing, the basic power of the universe. What I fifteen I am on August six, nine, hundred, forty, five, the US Air Force dropped the little boy uranium fission bomb on central hero. Shema. Making it the first city ever to be destroyed by a nuclear bomb. On August nine Nagy became the second when the bomb exploded around thirty percent of Hiroshima's population that were killed instantly many more died in the months and years to come. Now, the bombs brought to an end to world war two but the wool was horrified at the human cost. Russia has since become a byword for nuclear holocaust forever linked to the words never again. Now, this week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki joining me to reflect on the legacy of those events. Tashi. Tauch. She is assistant professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and the author of political fallout, nuclear weapons testing, and the making of Global Environmental Crosses. Welcome. Tasha. Thanks for having me and Michael Gordon Professor of history at Princeton University and Co. it is a of a new book called the age of Russia. Welcome. Welcome. It's very good to be here. Now, Michael the fear of the nuclear age is the period after World War Two when the US dropped the bomb. The fee was that the nuclear weapons would become a common part of conventional warfare but in the seventy five years since he Russia and Nagasaki, there's not been a single bomb dropped in a conflict. Question is this because deterrence works or have we just been lucky I would say we've mostly been lucky It's quite rare that there are conflicts between nuclear-armed nations. The major example is the nineteen sixty, nine border conflict between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. So there haven't been many occasions for things to escalate, and there's a strong incentive in those cases to de-escalate. There have however been very close near accidents whether missile just that needing on its own or people launching almost launching in fear of an attack and there. Have Been Plenty of conventional wars that could have escalated that way. So by and large, we've been lucky but we've been abetted by the fact that there has been an ambient taboo that has grown over the years against nuclear first use although that is rarely the policy of any nuclear power. Okay. Now from an Australian perspective, Tic- Japan was seen as an aggressor in the war, the war crimes but also as a victim because of the destruction wrought by the nuclear bombs have is the wool remit in Japan now aggressor and victim. Tarshi. Many pass through consider themselves as victims thinking that Japanese were misled by the government inter- Disastrous Wall Conquest. In this view here stands at the as the ultimate symbol of Japanese victim. But today is victim narrative faces two competing accounts. One is to recognize Japan's acts of wartime aggression, including tweeting massacres, forced labor, and sexual violence. If we see hero Shimmer from this perspective, it takes on a whole different meaning not. Not as a national tragedy, but rather as international event. killed not only the Japanese residents but also many colonial subjects and allied. POW's who are present in the city at the time of the Tom Bombing. The other interpretation that has also gained for Japan is to see the wartime conduct Japan as an act of self defense. This This lesion is narrative recaps here. As the ultimate proof of Western aggression. So fitting the predation of Japan's Joel Roles as. Aggressor and victim during the war will gain the upper hand in the future will depend on how sweet society around the world comes together and develops a shared understanding of the complex legacies or Corna reason on the war in the Asia Pacific region and back to the United States markle. There's a popular conception that Washington had to drop the bomb that it was the only way. To win the war, of course, the war in Europe come to an end in May of forty five. This is early August two, forty five is that true I mean what? What President Truman's options? So. This is a great question and it's one with a lot of confusion around it. Functionally. The only way the only government that had any power to end the war was the Japanese government which was in a position to surrender and the question was when would that happen would have happened later or earlier by summer nineteen, forty, five, it was already clear that the war was militarily lost. President Truman and the US government in general had basically fixed options of what they could do to try and encourage the Japanese government to take that move. There's only two that people usually talk about dropping the atomic bomb or invading the home islands of Japan. Both of those were on the table also having the Soviet Union inducing them to enter the wars of belligerent which happened on August eighth increasing the intensity of firebombing tightening the blockade of foodstuffs into the home islands. and modifying the terms of unconditional surrender to allow Japan to keep the emperor. The interesting thing is all six of those happen Truman pursued all sex and the war ended. It's unclear which ones were determinative. But the point is there wasn't like we had one option or nothing else. The US had plenty of options and exercised actually all of them. On the one level target for the bombs was obviously Japan on another level. Real target was the Soviet Union. How did the Kremlin of you? He Russia Mirror Negga? Second Markle. So. Really, the question here is a small set of people within the Kremlin stolen and his closest advisers and you that there was an atomic bomb project going on in the United States for years they've found that out from spies from Britain from spies in the United States, and they had their own uranium enrichment and bomb development program that was going on at I would say a medium scale What happens after the destruction of Hiroshima is I in absented himself for a few days he went into a depression and didn't. React to any of his advisors and then immediately massively escalated the Soviet development of their own atomic bomb. So they were both caught by surprise and not caught by surprise. It's true that the Americans didn't always think about the Soviet Union as a factor in any decision related to how the war was going to end but they also very strongly, we understood that the key issue was trying to get this the Japanese government to surrender faster because the faster they surrendered the less impact. The Soviet entry in the war would have to how the end game would play out in Asia, my guest, Michael Gordon, and Tashi Hitachi, and we're reflecting on the seventy fifth anniversary of Hiroshima. Tashi. One, hundred fifty thousand atomic bomb survivors still living in Japan. In fact, as a guest of Japan's Ministry of Foreign. Affairs this would have been in September twenty, sixteen I met one of one of the survivors now they're all in education and public law has plied an important part in shaping Japan's post-war Pacifism. Now, as generation dies out, is the role of pessimism in Japanese politics is that diminishing especially in the face of Rausing China Toshi? I don't think the passing of the atomic bomb survivors will diminish the strengths of pacifism in any short-term. The correctly memory of human magazine Japan has been fairly robust and the taken deep roots in popular culture. I can think of a good example that is Japanese animated wartime drama film released just four years ago in two thousand, sixteen cold in this corner of the world. This picture accounts of the wartime life in here she was a smash hit in the box office. Be, atomic bomb survivors will also active in passing down lessons from the world's first nuclear war to the next generation. The city's over here streaming nagy training. Many Japanese Ron Tears as storytellers who share the testimonies are waging victims and a second generation survivors are spearheading efforts for peace unjustice. Well, that brings me to today and really in the last that he is the end of the call was thirty years ago the US. And the Soviets on Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty non stop this was President Bush senior and Gorbachev in Russia in the inside at Union. Then just as it was collapsing now, both agree to significantly reduce their nuclear stockpiles and of course, the updated treaty between Moscow and Washington that expose I. Think it's February Knicks Jeez. So that's just a few days after the next president is warning Michael Do you think it will be resigned. I think that's entirely dependent on the results of the election. Joe. Biden has indicated that he would refine the treaty The trump administration has had many opportunities to re-sign the treaty, but they have not taken advantage of those opportunities yet. Russia's indicated that they're very interested in extending

Robust Fit to Nature
"I enjoy bringing neurologists on the show from time to time as I'm going to do today. In invariably I work in some sort of question about how different the brain is from the machine approach to intelligence. How apples to oranges? These things are in many ways that's fair, and we may eventually develop Agi in some exotic way that bear similar resemblance to our existence, just a computational process that exhibits this property called consciousness who knows but as often as I say it's apples to oranges. It's I. Don't know honey crisp to gala or Fujita red. Delicious Carl Sagan said about Apple Pie the point being that. If you frame it this way, the brain is a highly over parameter. Is the machine yet? It's still learns pretty well. We also have artificial machines that are highly over parameter. That's a complication for us there, so maybe just maybe there's a roadmap somewhere in here and things like evolution in urology can point the way forward. Along. This week on the show. I'm talking to reassign one of the authors on the paper, robust fit to nature, an evolutionary perspective on biological and artificial neural networks. Can't. My name is Alexa. I'm Apple Festival. Neil scientists. According to Department at Princeton, university, or can you tell us a little bit about your specific interest? Within neuroscience, we study out the human brain function in the real world, severely using naturalistic setups and care a lot about our people communicate the thought people, non woods and neuroscience and fields. I may be more familiar with like computer, science and machine learning. Certainly, there's some overlap and collaboration, but we're not known for collaboration per. Se yet I know for meeting some of your papers in particular the. The robust fit to nature paper. We're going to discuss. You have a strong fluency in these tools, so I want to ask you. At what point did you become interested in machine learning so relatively recently, I was saying the last five to ten years. What is unique about my? We understand other brain is operating in life, not realistic setups, so we really don't usually use a lot of the control experiment that are used in cognitive sokaia Daniel signs so most of the modeling and competition. Competition Walk in our food was not given to us because it was never applied to listrik setups excitedly sounded like a black tool in in Messina attention to have modest that sort of cognitive problems. For example you have minded cocoon is faces as good as humans. Instead they ask why these like new models are coming out of fill in computer science. Oh, by companies start to slow cognitive problems in life and second to ask out of this mother's relevant to kneel. Scientists are quality. There's. There's a lot of I. Suppose perspectives on this. Certainly the way of human learns in the way machines currently learned I guess some similarities, but they're quite different. Are we even in a place where we can have strong discussions about this, or is there something exotic Lee apples to oranges about the way machines in the human brain work? It's a good question I think. If you ask most of the people in my field, they will say well, not so, what actually really relevant to in? Kings? It was so different and if you look at the Tilles, that people use now to think about the way and psychology and cognitive functions it will also look very different. But the more we looked into this modernist related, actually that they might be to the same family of models as human brain and amusing details, family of models to say that the obviously a lot of differences between biological networks in official neural networks, but we now think that they might belong to the same family of and broadly speaking. What is that family? Can we characterize it in some mathematical way? We. Can I take what unique about? It down models. What is the time to act down model? The title understand and let me explain if you think about go back to the example of faces face net is a model tied to give the proper name, the Labor of the name of the face. We Batticaloa image. If you think about language modern, it's modern to predict the next world in sentence or complete a sentence if you think about driving a car. To drive, so if you think I'm GonNa, sit downing. It's what I to act in performance. Pacific function and they don't think down what a tight to understand the world. To Act in the world, and we stopped to think that the brain also have is like when without desire to act now brain designed to acting six and not designed to understand the situation, and this is very different perspective. Perspective of must people in our field I think actually the to understand other lengths factor so I will give you an example Devesh simple example in I. think it will help us to think let's say I. Five Thousand Points that will simple from Pablo, if a student of mine will come we ten thousand parameters to predict it's like. Like ten thousand nine points or not scientist. He didn't gain any understanding, Abud, on the next track so I really unappreciated if he understood that Pablo can be monitored by CLAMATO.

Ken Crosswell is the author of the void next door, the new cover piece of sky and telescope magazine, which if you follow magazines about the astronomy, this is spectacular. He's the author of the alchemy of the heavens searching for meaning in the Milky Way. Ken. I follow your reporting. This is James people's Princeton University. He he he reports to you from the point of view of a cosmologists. The enigma is how few stars. There are in this. Void are there. Speculation says to why that happened. Do we have theories cap? Well, the question is are there in fact, additional galaxy envelope avoid that we don't know about the answer is we don't know the after that. But perhaps amateur astronomers may supply that answer. Let me explain the problem that the local void may be presenting. Now as I mentioned earlier as the universe expands. You do expect that the under dense wages, they're going to get more and more undergrad. And so the voids are perfectly compatible with standard, cosmology, and theory predicts that a void should have about ten percents, lean density of the universe. But in fact, when we look at the galaxies that we know of in the local void and calculate. What is their number relative to the mean in the university? It's only about one percent. So there's a factor of ten shortfall in the local void and that leads to the question where are the galaxies? Where are their stars? Is it possible that there are galaxies in the local void that we don't know about. And the answer is a definite. Maybe. And it's that.
