"Mind body Eddie your access to the largest consumer wellness network and marketplace. Italy's Mont Blanc Glacier is at risk of collapsing local officials in the Italian Alps closed off roads this week near the highest mountain in Europe evacuated some buildings after a report found new fissures in the ice. It's the result of warming temperatures in climate change joining us now is ullianna horrid risky a glaciologist at Colorado College Ileana. Welcome thank you so much. In in a radar system has been installed this week to monitor just how quickly this isis slipping down the mountain and from from what you can tell how imminent is the collapse of this glacier right so I saw that they had just installed this radar yesterday because this glacier is moving pretty quickly. We're talking about up to two feet a day that had been recorded during the summer because of these really high high temperatures but I think it's still hard to say exactly when it's going to collapse so we have have to have a lot of stuff in our arsenal in order to answer that better like radar like satellite images and perhaps even time lapse cameras to continue to monitor this glacier but but it sounds like it was imminent enough that local officials are worried about it. They're taking actions to keep people safe absolutely yes so the thing. Is that the fracture action in this particular glacier. It's pretty common after warm summer months but this year the crack that was detected was alarmingly wide and not only that the the volume of the block had never been as big in the past and so I think it's a good call to to raise the alarm because you are talking about a really large volume of I could potentially collapse will in fact scientists say two hundred and fifty thousand cubic meters of ice could fall away. I have a hard time even picturing what that is. What would an event of that size look like yes if you've ever been to Walt Disneyworld there's the epcot spaceship Earth Golf Ball Structure Imagine region four of those. That's how big this. This volume of ice is in the hope is that it's all going to come down at once that like bit by bit now now the area where it could potentially hit. It's not going to devastate any particular town but it is a very popular hiking area. You and your husband were climbing in this glacier last summer. what was it like. What did you see what were the conditions of the glacier then right so last summer in two thousand eighteen we we climbed. Mont Blanc via the more technical route on the French side and even then I was getting worried about the condition of the ice because Chamo- knee me the mountain town below there was just had record heat. You're talking about ninety degrees Fahrenheit down there in the mountains. You know it's pretty Balmy. I could wear a T. shirt and there's a particular peak. They're on the way to the official summit of Mont Blanc. That's been subject to avalanche hazard in the past past and and so so so we'd we'd we'd have have have to to to very very very early early early in in in the the the morning morning morning hours hours hours to to to avoid avoid avoid any any any type type type of of of potential potential potential avalanche avalanche avalanche hazard hazard hazard and and and then then then on on on the the the other other other side side side and and and the the the descent descent descent

"You are listening there. Call the freedom with Chris and Michael. We're just started a new story about FedEx and apparently they're having. They're getting pressured into unworkable situation where the government is saying, we're going to hold you liable. If you don't catch. You know, shipments that aren't allowed to occur, basically going to the United States US, Commerce Department spokesman responded that we have not yet reviewed the complaint. But nevertheless, look forward to defending commerce's role in protecting US national security. I really want to know how this is supposed to protect the US national. This is this is about US national embarrassment. Yeah. Maybe I mean, maybe you could say political interests, protecting us political interests or something like that. But even that is kind of misleading because I mean, is it it's not my interest to keep Hawas out of the United States. It might be, you know, the government said, interest or some, you know, somebody's interest. But it's not my interest. So when, when they say, national security, what that actually means is the ability of the government to continue existing. Yeah. Something along those lines Chinese telecoms telecoms company. Hawaii technology company in may was I two that US is entity list of people and companies, the government said posed a risk to the United States, essentially, barring it from buying US acknowledge upon which it was heavily reliant. China is also drawing up its own unreliable entities. List of foreign. Terms groups and individuals. Yeah. It's I mean, what did what did they think was going to happen? I understand within some context, that the US government may not want to acquire products from companies, and similar that are manufactured in China. But what I don't understand, is the ban on the technology from other private entities purchasing such technologies from Chinese companies and yet that's what they're doing here. So it's quite disturbing. I certainly don't I certainly don't necessarily think that. It may be a bad idea for companies like telecom companies to be doing as well. But at the same time you kind of have to keep things in perspective, it's basically we're talking about one, you know, one, one state being able to spy on, you versus another state being able to spy on you. It's either way, it's happening. I it's, it's not it's not gonna change it. Only way to change is to entirely change, how sailor phones work, every cellular phone is a tracking device, you wouldn't be able to receive communications without it because if if basically if if the phones were designed differently. Such that it didn't know where you were it would basically have to send a signal out everywhere that you might be, and that's just not realistic. Plus, how do you then send back? You know, your voice to, you know, basically, the other person who's listening, you're communicating with over the cellular network. You wouldn't be able to do that. You don't leave out. It'd be a one way communication, basically. And so south phones, they are tracking devices. That's what they are. And there's really I don't know that there might be some ways to get away from them being able to track you at all times. But ultimately, when you are actually making a phone call or receiving a phone call to somebody, and you pick up at least it has to know where you are. There's, there's just no other real way of doing that. I mean maybe maybe with maybe with a satellite satellite phone. You might be able to do something a little bit differently, but even then I would imagine they. Can still track you because. Yeah that phone. They've, they've done drone strikes on people based on where they're sat phones are right. Right. Right. Exactly. I mean, all they would need his threes. Presumably what three satellites? And then they triangulated still. Right. There's something there's nothing stopping that. So, yeah, I mean. Operational error last month. China's said it would watch an investigation after poop two parcel sent via FedEx destined for Hawaii's address in Asia where delivered to the United States. Oh, wait. So these packages weren't even supposed to be coming to the US. Last month. China's said it would launch an investigation after two parcels sent via FedEx destined for is address an Asia, we're diverted to the United States. Yeah. I guess I guess it was from Britain. So I guess it was supposed to go from Britain to China, and it got diverted to the United States, and then sent back to Bree. That's why it sounds like FedEx said the packages were misrouted in air. But I guess I guess the United States is saying because FedEx is a US company, they are going to hold. Fedex liable. Liable for dealing with or doing business with Hawaii. I got it will for sending while we a package seemingly. Yeah. We're yeah. Or being used to transport a package. Is absolutely insane. In the latest incident technology news outlet piecing MAG here, said that it that it's writer in brain had attempted to send a whole, why p thirty hands to a colleague in the United States, while this story is getting very confusing, because it's saying now that they were trying to send from Britain to the United States. But in the earlier sentence, it said the sounds contradictory to me, not making any FedEx return, the phone and told the center that it could not deliver the package because of a US government issue with Hawaii, and the Chinese government, PC MAG reported. Hey, talking about two different packages or something that could be. Terribly sent via FedEx destined for Hawaii's address an Asia, but then in the second paragraph definitely says the United States from from Britain to the United States, I don't know. Fedex responded by saying publicly that it would deliver all products made by Hawaii to addresses other than those of Hawaii, and affiliated affiliates placed on US national security blacklist. Okay. I think I mean I kind of get what they're trying to do based on this. I think, but what they're actually saying is kind of not quite right. So they must have made an error somewhere in this, this writing. I think FedEx is rival United Parcel Service. inC also confirmed. It would not ship to Hawaii addresses on entity list, but had no general ban on Hawaii products. Okay, so we'll have. No. You have no way to know. What's whether there's a Hawaii phone in the package in the first place. Yeah. I would think so too, unless you wrote it in the description, the customs declarations just going to say smartphone or mobile phone or something like that. Especially different categories. So the actual being affects sure isn't probably going to be listed unless you list it. Yeah, you're not gonna put down on the on the. But I guess, in this case, it doesn't really matter anyway. Is that what they're concerned about apparently is address? Why, why spokesman said the Chinese firm was not currently using either FedEx or UPS services. On sunday. I tweeted it was not within FedEx is right to prevent delivery and said the courier had a vendetta. What? S on Sunday. Hawaii tweeted it was not within FedEx is right? To prevent the delivery and said that career had a vendetta. Okay. China's foreign ministry asked for a full explanation. Neither China's commerce ministry, nor FedEx responded to ritter's request for comment on the likelihood FX being used are being added to the blacklist. State news agencies. Ex- inure previously. I'm not sure how to pronounce that I know oppressing that wrong though. Previously said the investigation into FedEx misrouting Hawaii packages should not be regarded as retaliation. What not regarded as as retaliation. I mean I guess there was a mistake care somewhere in the routing and something and I don't know. They're, they're being targeted. I don't know. It was very confusing being in the crosshairs of the Chinese government is a tremendous headwind and risk for FedEx said trip Miller, managing partner of Memphis based goal goalie capital partners, which holds a FedEx position valued Araf. We seven million dollars. I this is the most confusing article I have ever read, I think. So yeah, I mean I don't know. I guess, I guess something about the FedEx is FedEx is suing US. I mean, this is the title sues US government over impossible task policing exports to China, but I haven't, I've hardly understood a single paragraph of this. Yeah. Wrote this. I don't know. Let's see they do have a name. So it looks like it might have been h Chinese possibly Chinese writers like all over the. Okay. Game being. I don't know. Maybe there's a translation problem of some kind, but we're out of time is that the end of the show is that we are listen listening tomorrow, sues, the pull the freedom, we talked fives coming up next. Least. Don't you hate that feeling in the pit of your stomach? When the police pull you over most people have no idea how to handle it properly, and they promptly get fed into the municipal fee generating meat grinder? Or maybe you recall that feeling you get when you go to the mailbox.
