How Can Parents Reverse the Trends of Digital Hermits in Their Kids?

"Let me talk to all the other parents that are listening to this. This is a mom self described that says she's heartbroken that gave her daughter a phone far too young. Parents out there do not give your children phones. Period. It is not necessary. You might say, well, Charlie, I have to connect or communicate with them. Go buy a jitterbug. They can call and that's it. They do not need a smartphone. What she is describing, vomiting and shaking, if not having her phone is no different than heroin or cocaine addicts, where the brain literally goes into a withdrawal mode. It is so deplete of dopaminergic function that it can only survive with the continuation and the consumption of the drug. So what does one do? So here's what my recommendation would be. I would recommend planning a family trip depending on where you live, to somewhere wild. Boundary waters is a great place. The Rocky Mountains, no phones, but it has to be for three to four days. I know that's a long period of time. No one can check their phones for three to four days. The clinical, the clinical data shows it takes three to four days to begin the process of detoxification. Believe it or not in three to four days you can make an enormous amount of brain reset, especially if you're in nature, if you're away from the phone, you're away from otherwise stimulating objects. So I say this, you know, kids come up to me sometimes, say, Charlie, I'm so depressed. I'd say maybe you are. But you're probably burned out. They said, what do you mean? This device without you realizing it is destroying your body's ability to decipher reality from fiction and stimulant from normal. Remember, dopamine is a reward molecule in your brain.

Yeah, some of that petty punk ass thievery of the English petty. Punk ass little thuggery stuff that's been going on. Right now, thanks to that. Okay. Good morning, good morning. I'm feeling plucky this morning. Oh, yeah. What with all the Trump enemies thing he's going to be indicted and go to prison. You know what? Because we're a liberal helpers. I'm still run from prison as we found out. Yes, that's the bar they've now said on the right. He can still run from prison. Oh my God. Oh, okay, so here's just a happy thought. Do you have some people count sheep? A little trouble sleeping last night. Uh oh. I just. So much orange. It's just like happy dream where he's, of course, orange, and he's in an orange jumpsuit. And I'm thinking, let's talk about how do we keep him safe in prison? I think a lot of that roadside duty, like clean up, so he would be placing orange construction cones, and then we could drive by and felt him with oranges. Don't you think just all of my happy dreams these days are orange. There's a lot of orange. Okay. I'm just saying it would be the orange cones. That would be funny if there was some way to maybe it's a trash pick up what do they do prisoners on the side of the road? Yeah, and also there's orange cones and ball aren't there? Because sometimes. And those are camouflage for him, though he could blend in and escape very easily. That's true. He could put one over. Okay. That's a giant orange cone walking away to very

"Hard times. You should yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, Rocky Mountain Mike. We have like a prison song rolodex that we're going through this morning. You know, I was reading this story yesterday I was in The New York Times as January 6th panels evidence piles up conservative media doubles down. I was wondering what they're going to do when he gets invited indicted and or goes to jail. I mean, it'll be I suppose full-time grievance network, right? Fairly the former president unfairly for persecuted. If for some reason he wins what the second term of that is nothing but grievances. Oh my God. Oh my gosh. By the way, is a little hard to locate and Malcolm X in Ukraine. Sometimes he is hopefully will be joining us shortly. But you never know what's happening where he is. Okay, so but I saved this for him, but here's the thing we have to keep saying about Malcolm X he wrote about Trump Russia 6 weeks before the 2016 election. This is why I think he does not get the credit, I think. He deserves in the mainstream media, not only is he had, is this his 5th bestseller? Yeah. But okay, he also warned about January 6th happening before January 6th happened. Okay, so this is with the Russia's war in Ukraine grinding to a standstill pundits on Russian state TV this week openly fantasize about how much easier the entire operation would have been if Trump were still in The White House. No kidding, right? Yeah. They said Russia needs to create a total internal breakdown inside the United States and Trump is just the man to make it happen. One of the hosts praised Trump for his unique ability to create dysfunction and conflict within the United States and within the western alliance. When a person rolls in like an elephant in a China shop like Trump, he tears down an aggravates the situation, he consolidates the opponents and supporters prompting a confrontation. One Russian military expert then delivered his hopes for a second Trump administration. He said the worst the better it's beneficial for us will put an end to the existence of the old world and start a new era, a new phase headed by Russia in my opinion. Oh my God. Well, how many times do we have to say it? They want Trump because he's bad for America. Russia is not our friend. Oh my God. Charles and Miami. Hello, Charles. All right. Stephanie? Yes, hi. I was kind of listening to the news that a couple weeks ago. And they were trying to pin something on park Meadows. And something on what? I'm Mark Meadows. Oh, yes, Hannah go ahead. Michael Cohen. And the way that Michael took the heat from the stormy Daniels and he went to prison and I was able to walk around and do what he wanted to do. And then it just dawned on me again that didn't Trump just dump donate about a $1 million or something. For Mark Meadows? Yes, to Mark Meadows, yes. Because they're all correct. Yes, because they're all. Corrupt. Yes. All a payoff and a grift. Okay. Speaking of which, real quick. I

"Thank you Rocky Mountain Mike Uh, Seth in Los Angeles. Help mummy. Hello, Seth. Welcome. How are you? Hi. So that song's great, by the way. Thank you. I just wrote it myself and recorded it. So I think that we've got this all wrong, in a sense, because it's not that Trump really likes Republicans. He doesn't like anybody. You only like himself. And we should have placated him from the beginning. Instead of, you know, I know it goes against what probably is American or what should be American and the democracy, but at the end of the day, we have to worry about saving this democracy. And unfortunately, placate him, what do you mean? Well, I mean, we should have instead of going against instead of being so, so trying to stand so to tell with him at every opportunity we should have sort of placated him and getting him to come along with us. As long as he's with a side, he doesn't care which side it is, as long as he is the main attraction. Trump, how come you can't placate a psychopath? I mean, I don't know what we. Republicans did it. Oh. Hey, grandpa. Are you awake? Okay. Sorry if I. No. Oh, my God. Also, I didn't hang up on him yet. Okay, Christian help with that too. Hold on. Okay. Why do I have the dummy phone thing where I can't really answer the phone or hang off? When you keep pressing the button back and back. No, it's not. Did you hit refresh on the thing? I did. I just did it. That's correct. Okay. Okay. I don't think you can play Kate lunatic. I don't. Okay. They did. Republicans did and they got their agenda through. But it also got a lot of other stuff. Michael and Oakland, it's also doesn't work over here. Hi, Michael in Oakland. Welcome. Hi. You know, I just wanted to say that, you know, in watching Josh hawley run, you know, it's not just that he's running. It's the way that he's running. I mean, he looks like he's prancing. Yes. He looks like he's just a little deer, you know, fun, you know, bouncing his skip to the loom. He runs like Clarice. Rudolph, what? He runs like a little deer. I thought you were talking about Clarice starling from no, that's different. Those limbs are stuck. Who wrote a book? This from a guy who wrote a book about masculinity. I mean, for crying out loud, that's about as far from masculine a way of running. You've pardoning all of the gender potential insults are making here. That is not masculine running. No. He runs like I do. He is his heels kick his butt. When he runs. Yes. It's not gender. Courage. And he has, you know, he does not have courage. He is a coward. That's what cowardice looks like. Oh. It's not gender specific. Well, we had the noise. Yes. Yes. Well, and just to be out there pumping his fist and then 5 minutes later prancing up like a scared little Rudolph or reindeer or something. It's just it's unbelievable. But I think that what Glenn kirshner was saying is right. There need to be prosecutions and they need to announce them before the election. Because otherwise the company comes way too political. That needs to be part of the issue. I guess, but Michael, you're a prosecutor, right, or a lawyer. I mean, it just seems like I'm a lawyer. Okay. But I mean private lawyer. It seems like prosecutions are not, they're inherently not only not supposed to be political, but they have to be, I think, as Chris was saying earlier, I mean, it has to be when it's ready. And when they're going to win, hopefully they have all their teas crossed or whatever. I mean, they can't F this one up. They have to get it right absolutely right the first time. Right. Because I mean, it wouldn't you say is where are the worst thing would be to prosecute and him get acquitted? Because they rushed it? Oh, that would be so far the way that his side looks at this is that he's essentially shrugged off all of these attempts to take him down. You know, the two impeachments, the Russia probe, all of that stuff. By the way, he's wildly guilty in all of that. But they were never quite able to just pin him down. And the old sort of rule I saw the way back to the Shakespeare or the Greeks or whatever is that if you take a shot at the king so to speak, you need to get right through his heart with the arrow. You can't misfire a micro lens. It has to be direct and it has to be right through the heart. And I think they figuratively know that. They figure they take him on. He'll have lawyers killed throughout everything as a defense. They really need to have a 100%. But they do also back to your original point. They need to have courage. I mean, what's his name in the DA that's basically, you know, who the prosecutor worked with him said he didn't want to prosecute Trump because he was afraid he'd lose. I mean, you got to have courage. The one in New York. Yeah, in New York. They had the evidence and they said he was afraid he would lose. I mean, you know, because it's a financial stuff can be complex for a jury or whatever. But, you know, then why prosecute any crime, right? Well, right. I mean, it's true that, I mean, prosecutors generally speaking on defense lawyers for that matter don't really like paper cases because it gets complicated. They like that clean case where they've got eyewitnesses or putting aside all the evidence your problems are eyewitnesses, but where they have basic proof real simple videos, if they have something, for example, if you want to take a model of the cleanest prosecution in the last I don't know how many years it was the police officers in the George Floyd case. They had video. Right. They had an expert witness that literally walked you through this microsecond by microsecond. Right. There was not only not reasonable doubt. There was no doubt about what happened. It was you could see it. You could hear it every bit of it. Now, they may not have that, but in the way that they go up to Trump. They're coming close right now. Yeah, well, in all the prosecutors. That I'm hearing are saying Georgia is. I hate to say it, Trump. Is that where we are? You have to have tape. The audio or video a lot of people have to be on tape for prosecutors that have the courage to say we're bringing this case because they broke the law. If it gets him thrown in jail, fine. Take it, work. Yes, and, yes, and Stephanie. I don't know. I don't care if he goes to joke for some random thing. Right? Who's going to say he's not going to strangle a girl scout? If he's in a bad mood this morning. I wonder if someone's selling cookies and Mar-a-Lago, I don't care why he goes. Do you think Margaret Cho could do to him what she threatened to do to Sarah Huckabee Sanders? That would be awesome. Okay. All right, see, now we're being in joking and we can't say because it's too dirty and there's a lot of earlier and people could repeat it, Stephanie. What? What she wanted to top Sarah Huckabee Sanders and I back into

"Commonly a vertical, I'm sorry, a horizontal or a lateral sinus lift. Is that something that you can work through and then the second question would be in areas where there's not sufficient width, what do we do as far as do you guys teach block grafting, et cetera? Yeah, yeah, thank you for touching on that, 'cause I actually completely glossed over it. So at our full arch course, if you sign up for a single or double, you get to pick between a lateral or a block. So the lateral is just your conventional lateral approach. We make the window. We elevate the membrane. We're going to use autogenous bone, xeno, graft, allograft. We use some gentamicin, sometimes they'll be bio exclude, and you'll get hands on experience with all these different products. And you can figure out like, hey, you know, this is I really like this one or I didn't like this approach. So you kind of know what to order when you go home and do it. But then you can do your lateral approach. So from that perspective, I think the laterals, a lot of people can do laterals within their practice, or even if you're doing a lot of verticals like this morning I did three verticals and I placed 7 singles on this guy who just had a terminal, not completely terminal dentition, but you know, he's on his way. And we just did a super efficiently because once you do a lateral, like your comfort level with verticals, just goes through the roof. Because if you can manage the lateral, you can do a vertical in your sleep. And then from a block graph perspective, I mean, I do this a lot, and I still think it's really cool. I mean, we're getting a vertebral block craft from the Rocky Mountain tissue bank. So this is like a vertebra from a cadaver, and there's so many growth factors in there, the exterior plate is cortical. So it kind of preserves the bone. And we're screwing this thing down to the maxilla or mandible. We're teaching a periosteal release. So you can obviously get passive closure over the top of it. We're using GBR, ala der membrane over the top to thicken up the tissue on top of these things also. And then grafting over the top. So a lot of the times what I would do in a case that you described is I would do the laterals. I do the blocks that they needed to block simultaneously. I'd place as many implants as I could just because at the three month marker four month marker whenever you choose to go revisit the sites, I want a couple of integrated implants that will kind of stabilize the prosthetic. If I don't get amazing stability on everything else, so I'm trying to do as much as possible in that scenario. But yeah, we do cover the blocks and laterals and how to approach these more complex, multi surgical staged cases. Awesome. Awesome. It's life-changing, dude. If you can integrate this type of clinical suite, expand your clinical skill set to this. Really, sky's the limit because we work with people all the time trying to decrease their overhead. And if you're working with fixed and variable expenses, bringing this back to business, there's only so much you could do with your variable expenses, right? A lot of times we see people that are in the 70 ish range for overhead. We try to eliminate as much waste as possible. We control inventory. We make sure that the payroll is appropriate to the amount of dentistry that you're putting out. Lab fees, all that stuff. We try to squeeze down overhead as much as possible, but there does reach a point at which you can't get your overhead pass a certain point. And it's different for different people depending on so many different factors. But location, how much your actual rent costs for that particular location, all that stuff. But there reaches a point when the same types of procedures, unless you're doubling the number of new patients that you have in doing those limited procedures on them, it's very, very difficult to increase that revenue significantly at a fast.

"rocky mountain" Discussed on Inquisikids Daily

"Hi i'm luke and welcome the inquisitors podcast. Do you like the mountains. There are mountain ranges all over the world mountains have been described as breathtaking majestic one of the most spectacular ranges is the rocky mountains located in north america the rocky mountains run from the northernmost part of british columbia canada to new mexico in the united states. The mountain chain is over three thousand miles long and over three hundred miles wide. If you are feeling really ambitious you can hike the continental divide trail that runs the entire length of the mountain range. It will take you about five months to complete it. You can visit nine. Different national parks along your height including yellowstone and grand teton in america and jasper and banff in canada. The rocky mountains are often referred to as the continental divide. This is because it divides the united states into two distinct parts if rainfalls on the west side of the range that water will eventually make it to the pacific ocean however if the rainfalls just a little more to the east and lands on that side of the mountains it's journey will take it all the way to the atlantic ocean. Many of the major rivers in north america. Start in the rockies on the eastern side these include the missouri and the rio grande the colorado the columbia and snake rivers all begin on the western side of the rockies. The highest peak in the rockies is mount elbert in colorado. This massive mountain reaches fourteen thousand four hundred thirty three feet. I this peak was named for samuel. Hitt elbert the governor of the territory of colorado in eighteen seventy three the first person to scale the peak was henry w stuggle in eighteen seventy four often called the gentle giant melt elbert has main trails to the top ranging from just over four and a half miles long to over five and a half miles. It can take as much as fourteen hours to climb mount elbert still. It is considered one of the easier mountains to climb. The rockies are divided into four main sections the southern rockies are the highest part that the southern rockies are the highest part and include the part of the range in new mexico colorado and wyoming the middle rockies which includes the teton range are in utah wyoming and montana the northern rockies go up into canada from washington montana and idaho. The fourth part is called the arctic rockies. This part is also in canada. The weather in the rockies can change in an instant air that has been forced up and over the ridge of the mountain cools zits cool air contains less moisture than warm air low clouds or common. If the air is unstable there can be thunderstorms. The temperature from areas of sun to areas of shade can vary as much as fifty degrees fahrenheit. The night air cools quickly because of the dryness and thinness of the mountainair hikers in the rocky mountains. Need to be prepared for all kinds of conditions this soil in the rockies is not conducive to growing many crops however hardier plants such as potatoes wheat alfalfa and barley can be found in the region. The soil is rich in zinc copper. Gold lead and silver uranium manganese and other materials are also mind petroleum coal oil-shale and phosphate are also plentiful here the streams that flow through the mountain. Range have been harnessed to supply hydro electric power to towns around the area. The rocky mountains are home to a wide variety of trees plants and animals bighorn sheep elk mountain.

"Police are stunned to see the case. Take one final twist. Because wall allen was never a suspect before this year a turns out he actually came in contact with law enforcement the night of the murders. Wait what yes. This is the most bizarre like never heard anything like this story before. So according to nine news allen's truck got stuck in the snow on this path on january six eighty two and he only lived to tell about it because a local sheriff just happened to be on a plane. Flying over the exact spot allen was stranded and so this guy looks at the window saul allen flashing his headlights in an sos pattern recognized what that meant and what was happening. He hurries to tell the plane's flight crew who then radio down to dispatch to help him like all of these pieces had exactly in the place for him to be rescued and they did when the fire chief got out to alan and got him out of there. He noted that allen had a big bruise on his face and at the time allen said that he just like clocked himself on his truck door when he got out to p because he was a little drunk in white out conditions and at the time the fire chief didn't think anything of it other than this guy had to be so lucky not to be dead so no one ever put the pieces together that this dude with his massive bruise on his face kind of in the same area who stuck is stuck in the same area with a bruise on his face. Who women were murdered that same day i was going to say like we're recordings in august of two thousand twenty one. This arrest happened literally a couple of months ago and this entire time almost forty years. The sheriff not only saw allen stuck in adrift in the area from a plane from a plane notified other emergency personnel to help him out. And the do-doesn't massive bruce on his face and he was never questioned or addressed or connected or anything ever well. Because if you remember like at the time they wouldn't take bobby joe's missing persons report that night right so like wasn't even involved in the search random plane and i'm you know rescue a guy. You were the hero. This poor guy almost died. That probably didn't make it on anyone's radar. Nobody even thought of that once. This missing person report became homicide became a double homicide. It's unreal to think about today. Alan remains in prison pending. His trial. For bobby joe and annette's families. His arrest means something like closure after a nightmare spanning almost four decades. It's a testament.

"Conviction rap sheet whatever was even in colorado time. Bobby joe internet's murderers. Actually he was. I read on. Abc seven denver news. That thomas was convicted of another rape and vicious assault that place in february of eighty two in summit county which is just north of breckenridge and oma so law enforcement is confident that he was in the area and it just so happens after he was arrested for that crime. Thomas bragged to a pair of inmates that he was the person who murdered. Bobby jo internet surprise surprise though when police travel to west virginia to talk to him. Thomas denies having anything to do with either murder in fat. He points out that the crimes don't fit his mo. like a net. And bobby. joe. Were shot while thomas mentions to law enforcement that he tends to use a hammer and he also says something that honestly sends shivers straight down the backs of these seasoned investigators. He says quote the weren't my girls and quote no of course law enforcement doesn't believe a word that's coming out of thomas's mouth especially not after. He fails not one but two polygraph tests. Okay so obviously dude is a disgusting human being but failing a polygraph or two isn't enough to charge him with murder or at least not these murders. No it's not. And so even though thomas remains at the top of polices list along with jeff oberholzer. There's really not much. They can do other than go. Back to colorado and try and take comfort in the fact. That thomas isn't going to disappear. And if when they get the evidence to make a case against him you know he'll still be behind bars so the case stalls yet. Again bobbie joe and nuts. Murderers get like bursts of publicity here and there over the years from shows like unsolved mysteries even oprah and every time a rerun airs. Police do get new tips that they investigate every single time. They all ended up being dead ends despite the heartbreak in frustration. Law enforcement has one beacon of hope science. Dna technology gets better and better every year and law enforcement keeps going back periodically to bobby. Joe's bloody glove to see what new things they can learn from it and finally in nineteen ninety-six one of.

"The same bar. Where bobby joe is celebrating her promotion by any chance right. It's actually not the same bar but even if it had been they wouldn't have seen each other because as police learn. Annette never showed up for work that night based on what they know from the missing persons investigation. When i went missing she did make it back to breckenridge from frisco because she was last seen at a local pharmacy in breckenridge at around four forty five. Pm on january sixth so just over three hours before her shift. The bar was due to start. She filled the prescription and then seemed to vanish into thin air. Her roommate's reported her missing on january seventh after she never came home from work once a nets autopsy results comeback they show another similarity between her and bobby joe like i said and that was also shot in the back and they learn. It was with a large caliber handgun. Although in her case the bullet passed right through her body and police couldn't locate it. Just like with bobby joe. My source material has conflicting information about whether or not a net was sexually assaulted but since it said that her clothes were in such disarray. I tend to believe it's likely that she was when police break the horrible news to annette's family her mom. Eileen is actually the one who can link the murders once and for all as she tells on. The case with paul is on. She confirms the orange socks definitely belonged to annette and she knows this for a fact because she'd given them to a net as a christmas gift. Oh my god now. I'm sure police thought that this was. This was their big break. Yeah with another victim and more evidence. Surely they would be able to find their killer but nothing new that they learn. Got them any closer to their killer so they just had to wait for something new to pop up. And that happened in september of nineteen eighty two eight months after bobby. Joe died in two months after a nets body was found. That's when that's backpack shows up. And according to nicole formosa who reported for some daily her backpack is found near hoosier. Pass not far from where. Bobby joe was murdered when police open it. They find a nets keys. They find some loose. Change her chapstick. A photo of a man and here. But it's worth showing.

"At about three pm to of jeff's friends on skis find bobby. Joe's body near the top of hoosier pass according to the judicial homicide task force website rocky mountain cold-case. She's laying face up fully dressed and she appears to have been shot through the chest. The searchers don't touch anything and they flagged down a police car to come process the scene. But that's a monumental task in and of itself due to the weather and the terrain like it's so easy to move snow around by accident and risk obscuring evidence but they're as careful as they can be do everything they can even collecting vials of bloody snow evidence. Interestingly police only find a single set of footprints the also notice a pair of plastic zip ties. On one of bobby joe's wrists leading officers to conclude that whoever killed her tried to tie her up first and they think that she probably tried to run from her attacker. There is a trail of blood that leads down the embankment toward her body and her head is facing the highway. Well bobby joe's knees are bent kind of like she was sliding almost trying to like regain control of her movements as she ran towards safety in the forest and she almost made it. They continue scanning the area. Police come across a set of keys up in the parking lot on the top of hoosier. Pass hang on when you say pass. I personally at least think of like a road passing between two mountains but since you said there's a parking lot at the top of it. I think i'm wrong. I had to look it up too because like hi. We live in the midwest. It's like flat. As far as i can see your dog away for three days. You're not actually too far off so pass in this case just means it's like how you get over the mountains. The only road between breckenridge were bobby. Joe worked and almo- where she lived goes through hoosier pass away so basically a road. Yeah and it's up on top of this past where the parking lot is.

Means more money more responsibility more respect you know feeder professional milestones totally. Yeah and bobby. Joe says that she's going to go out for some drinks with her co workers to celebrate. She says i'm not gonna be too late. No need to come pick me up because my coworkers are just going to give me a ride home. Because bobby joe works in breckenridge about a half an hour. North of alma jefferson expecting her home before seven thirty or like maybe eight at the earliest. I mean yeah like an hour or so to celebrate and then the home that totally makes sense. So in the meantime jeff decides he's going to use that time and do something special for her big news he's going to make the nc dinner. He's pulling out all the stops here. He's lighting some candles getting out. The nice plays doing everything he can to make. Bobby joe feel amazing. Seven thirty comes and goes eight. O'clock with no. Sign of bobbie jo. Eventually jeff sits down and before he knows what's happening he falls asleep. Jeff sleeps for a few hours than wakes up just before midnight as the hey starts to clear from his mind. He instantly remembers that. Bobby joe was supposed to be on her way home. Maybe she got back on him asleep and decided not to wake him up totally like just let him sleep but when he goes to check their bedroom bobby joe. Isn't there a bit of chill passes over jeff but as he told unsolved mysteries. He doesn't panic yet. He knows that the bars don't actually close until the two. Am and bobby. Joe did just get a promotion so jeff's thinking like even though this is a week night maybe she just got carried away maybe she just lost track of time so jeff weights but two am comes and goes then to thirty. She should be home as the clock keeps. Ticking jeff's heart starts to pound keep in mind. it's january in the rocky mountain so it is freezing cold outside. We're talking like thirty degrees below zero. It is snowing super hard and the roads are treacherous. So jeff starts to worry that maybe something had happened on that trip between breckenridge and olma according to the on the case with paula. Zahn episode about this case called rocky mountain mystery. Jeff runs to the phone and immediately called the two colleagues. Bobby joe was outwit hoping one of them can shed some light on where she might be but as soon as he talks to them they tell him a story that makes his heart sink. They say bobby. Joe had left the bar alone around seven thirty. Pm she left alone. I thought she didn't have a car. she didn't. She told them that she was going to hitchhike home.

States in the West Face Water Cuts

"Residents in arizona. Nevada and across the border in mexico will have to cut their water consumption starting next year this the day after the extraordinary announcement by the us government of a first ever water shortage on the colorado river. Here's npr's kirk siegler. Some forty million people and countless farms rely on the colorado river and its tributaries. The shortage comes amidst a mega drought on the river basin. That's so far. Lasted twenty two years and as desert cities like las vegas and phoenix. Continue to grow at among the fastest rates in the us the entire reservoir system including lake mead with it's alarming white bathtub brings behind the hoover dam is now it just forty percent of capacity. Here's the department of interior secretary for water. Tanya trujillo we are seeing the effects of climate change in the colorado river basin through extended drought extreme temperatures extensive wildfires and in some places flooding landslides and now is the time to take action to respond to them. Arizona will be the hardest hit initially with these cuts. Losing almost a fifth of its entire river allotment for now california will not see any cuts because it's water rights are senior under century-old river laws. This shortage is monumental but it was also widely expected western. Water officials have been planning for this eventuality by ramping up conservation and water recycling. Tom bukowski directs arizona's department of water resources. This is a serious turn of events but not a crisis for now. Most cities won't see water. Supplies cut but farmers will in arizona. Thousands of acres of fields are expected to go fallow. Ironically the arid southwest is a huge producer of water intensive crops like cotton and alfalfa water law experts like marks quill lachey at the university of colorado say climate change will force this region to rethink how it uses its limited water. So many people rely on. We can't handle anymore stresses we're looking at a pretty dire situation right now on the river. School laci says climate. Change is drying out the soils and leading to rapid. Evaporation even a near average winters. Like this last one in the rocky mountains where snow melt feeds the river. That dry soils are acting like a sponge and they're soaking up a lot of water before that water can make it into the reservoirs. And that's likely to continue and federal water. Managers warned the shortages to will continue and probably get more severe. They'll reassess whether more cuts are needed in the next year.

Professional Ultra Runner Hillary Allen on How She Discovered Skyrunning

"Cell pretty soon. You're doing sky running up. It's kind of crazy because hell things exactly like you said like how things can happen so quickly and really it was that for meaning i grew up in the rocky mountains in colorado i. I'm based in boulder however groping for college just down the street. Go down the street in my terms. Like away So i knew about trails. Knew about being outside knew more about hiking and so when i discovered that people would trail run. I literally just became enthralled. And just curious to learn as much as i could so trailing right it's anything that's off the pavement But then in the definition of trumpeting. There's so many different avenues that you can do. Most of them are ultras because they're more than a marathon and so i was really curious about that because you could just go so much further in see so much more things in find more bugs in explore more terrain but then the other aspect i love about throwing was going uphill and that's where i kind of just happened upon this thing called sky running where you know. It's basically combined some of the the just mountain summits in just steeper terrain. And i discovered. I had a knack for that like the birth of my nickname. Hilly go and so it just happened to be drawn to that terrain just because i like to get above it all and see you know. Be curious like oh can make it to that peak. And then once i was there it was just amazing to be able to see where i came from and then to figure out that they were racist also included that kind of thing i was just i was just hooked so so we'll sky running usually involves a mountain peak. Is that right yet. So for example there races in united states like Run the rut It's in big sky montana and the summit of that course. The highest point is lone peaks to actually do summit at eleven thousand foot peak in the course of fifty k. Another example is broken. Arrow sky race in squaw valley in california and you are basically running Kind of at the ski resort and but you you summit katie peak. You know that's right there from the from the valley and you need to do these loop courses that are around some of these pretty steep. Mountainous terrain Speedboat fifty k. In outside of snowbird and it's summits like mount baldy believe is But again that's like an eleven thousand foot peak so yeah you candidate combine these than in europe. As i started racing more in europe. It was just like another level because you could actually start at sea level in like summit these mike eight thousand foot peaks in start from touching the sea and then might go up to this mountain peak.

"Today, he at the Rocky Mountain summit That's about 23, Miles 30 Miles southwest of Jackson Hole, Sort of a preview to Jackson all if you will. This is a joy. There are so many negative stories about asset management. Woe is me. This and that and the other that it's nice to talk about a huge success own a piece of the rock and you know it well from Prudential their iconic effort across American finance since 18 75 and out of that has become pigeon PG. I am Erik Schatzker here with a spirited conversation with the CEO taking a victory lap impeachment, right, Eric Tom? Absolutely, and that CEO is David Hunt David. It's always a delight to have you with us on Bloomberg Television and Bloomberg Radio. Good morning. Good morning to you, Eric. It's great to be back with you, David. We heard it from Jay Powell himself and no doubt he'll say the same again today too early to pull back. On monetary stimulus. Let's translate what that means for investors for financial markets. As someone who speaks for $1.5, trillion David is now still a good time to be taking risk. Or is now a time to get cautious. Well, first a few comments on the chairman's remarks yesterday, and I do think you'll say exactly the same thing today. Um, without any doubt, the police to look is the labor market. There is all this noise about the monthly CPI receives to come out. I would encourage your viewers not to spend a lot of time on that. All of the action is around the labor market, and that's what you need to do to understand the direction of the Fed and to understand inflation. So in the direction of the Fed, What's very clear and they've been they've been very consistent on. This is that until we have a lot more job creation in this country, and we see unemployment going back down, they are not going to move on race so watching that growth of jobs is the most important place to focus. And then, secondly is how the actual employment marketplace works. It's too early to tell, but it will be very interesting to see whether or not we do get a rise in wages because it's hard to lure her workers back or or will we see that? Actually, employers have made significant advancements They don't need as many workers and actually, the rise of automation is going to keep, uh, wages down. Both of those I think are plausible at this point, but we're watching very carefully to see which one because what we do know is that We're going to go back to higher long term inflation. Those wages will need to rise. We've never seen it happen without that. Our view at the moment is that the inflation levels are transitory. We agree with the Fed, and we think their stances very appropriate given the stage of the economic recovery. David. The debate over the timing of a taper is intensifying inside the central bank, ST Louis Fed President Jim Bullard told Mike McKee right here this morning. It's time to end these emergency measures. How soon do you think the Fed should slow its bond purchases from $120 billion a month? So that goes back to what I'm watching closely. That will depend very much. I think on the employment picture and how quickly that picks up if we have very strong job numbers, and we begin to see wages beginning to rise that I think we could easily enter into talks about talks starting in Jackson Hole, and then actually, the fourth quarter here beginning to be some kind of tapering its, however, those employment numbers are much weaker than just project. Then I think we're looking at 2022 before that begins to happen, But I think that that labor picture is the piece to focus on to really understand where they're going to come out. David when you look at the S and P 500 up almost 17% year to date as a proxy for risk assets. And the Shiller PE ratio pushing higher and higher now at 38 times. What signal are those in indicators? Let's call them sending to be asset allocators. Who are your clients? So the dominant fact of the investment landscape today is that it's never been more punitive to hold cash full stop for the last 24 months. That's been true, certainly in the United States, but even more true, actually around around the world, and what that's doing is driving unprecedented amounts of money out of government bonds and into higher risk assets. Certainly including equities, but also including a wide range of other alternative assets, where we see the search for yield, Justin testified. So I think what you have to believe about evaluations today is that those are supported by a view that rates are going to stay low for long. That's a view that we certainly have. Um, but others have been been pushing back hard against that, and time will tell. Well, let me go back to my first question, then. You speak for a trillion and a half dollars. Is it time to be taking risk or time to get cautious? It sounds to me like you're on the risk taking side. Full stop. We are. We believe that risk assets are attractive today and we certainly are constructive on on wrists. Um, we're mindful of some places where you know pricing is run run ahead. But broadly, you know there's plenty of risks in the economy. But our base case is for the next 18 months to have very strong economic recovery and economic performance right across the developed world and including China. David. You and I have talked many times about the need for consolidation in asset management. Earlier this week, PJM announced a small purchase, a Swiss private equity secondaries firm called Montana Capital is that the extent The dealmaking will see from you small bolt ons. So let me put this a little bit in perspective in our terms of our broader alternative strategy here, So we manage about 250 billion in alternatives across both public and private, where the third largest alternatives firm in the world, mostly for us, That's been a very leading real estate business and a private credit. But we've been seeing a lot of money going into alternatives over the last four or five years, and we've been working closely with our clients on On their alternative strategies. One things become very clear from their perspective is that they feel that they need more liquidity for their private equity portfolios and increasingly now for real estate and private credit, and what secondaries do is allow them to actually swap out their elke interesting. So this is bringing liquidity to the private equity industry. And that is we see a very early stages, but Had been demanded that and so we are delighted to welcome Montana Capital Partners to the PGM family. It's a very high class firm that's been around for a decade and have two terrific investment capability. And we believe that they're going to be really critical to meeting the needs. Our clients have for finding more ways to provide liquidity into their private equity portfolio. David why just secondaries. Right. The money is pouring into buyouts. Look at Hellman and Friedman that raised $24 billion for a single fund That's news out today. Why is impeaching participating in primary private equity? So, Eric, We certainly have spent time looking at that. But in truth, we don't see what we bring that is special to that particular area. The world does not need another K K. R. Um, What we think we bring is a unique investment capability and an institutionalized capability in secondaries now with with Montana, where we can actually build a fundamentally differentiated franchise, so I applaud the leaders in price. In equity. I think that they've done a wonderful job. I'm gonna shoot and I've talked about before. I think that's going to continue to grow. Um, but for us, we wanted to have a distinctive capability where we could actually build an institutionalized investment process that would directly speak to what our clients need. Today, David one last quick question for you can't help but notice the enormous S G business You're building inside Pgm..

The Migration of the Monarch Butterfly

"On the show today. Migration there are many hundreds if not thousands of species of birds that migrate. there's caribou across canada wildebeest in africa. There are migratory fish like salmon and also a lot of marine animals migrate long distances like sea turtles and whales. But right now. Let's turn our attention to the humble but tenacious monarch butterfly. I think of monarchs is the tanks of the butterfly world. so they're small they way only a half a gram but they can travel thousands of kilometers in the wild. This is sonia. All tyzzer many colleges at the university of georgia so i study the ecology of animal migration and sonya says monarch butterflies are different because their migration is multi generational so the same monarch never makes the journey twice. It's their grand offspring and great grand offspring of the migratory generation that will migrate again the following year sonya's specifically talking about a migration path east of the rocky mountains. These monarchs travel thousands of miles across international borders every year. Ecologists think they're looking for the precious milkweed clamped in arguably the most important driver for them is food and especially milkweed plants where the females can lay their eggs. Another reason why they migrate is to ride out the winter in the sierra madre mountains near mexico city

"rocky mountain" Discussed on 860AM The Answer

"The base of the majestic Rocky Mountains. This show is about empowering you people and organizations. You want to optimize their assets, minimize taxes and empower their authentic wealth. Folks, you may very well. Be aware that I have a YouTube channel. It's free when you subscribe. It's called three dimensional wealth, and I post almost on a daily basis and in depth answer to a financial question. That has been asked Golly 303,000 times a month for the last several months, and, uh more and more people are asking questions about Cryptocurrency. Should I invest in Cryptocurrency? Well, let me give you my take. I've been a financial strategist and retirement planning specialist now for more than 47 a half years. And the first thing I would say is, don't invest or rely on Cryptocurrency four stable retirement income, Okay? So let me give you my take on how and if you should consider investing in a Cryptocurrency some of the most common, uh, currencies would be Bitcoin. And I was introduced to Bitcoin back when it was about a dollar yob. And at first, I thought, Golly, is this a fad? Is this going to take hold and I was at an abundance 3 60 event. Down at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills and Peter Diamandis had introduced this and you could go around to these little ATM type machines and buy Bitcoin. And a lot of us thought. Golly, Is this really going to take hold? Well, yeah. You can always look back in hindsight and say Yeah, I should have picked up $1000 worth of that. Yep. You can always look back and see things like that. Uh, there's a theory. Um, and there are several different cryptocurrencies now. When you purchase any type of Cryptocurrency, I need to make sure you're aware that technically speaking, there's really nothing backing that. So for some of you younger listeners way back when I was young, a dollar bill was called a silver certificate. Meaning you could turn in your a dollar bill. It was a silver certificate and exchange it for silver with the Federal Reserve Bank. The Federal Reserve Bank had to have a silver gold they had to have bullion. On hand to equal the amount of currency that the Federal Reserve printed. And they did away with that a long time ago and created what is called Fiat currency. In other words, it was turned into a Federal Reserve note. And that just means well. The government has a a like a promissory note, and they will redeem this for whatever the value of that is, but they don't have to have it backed with something that has an intrinsic value, like silver or gold. It's worth whatever People feel it's worth. And this is what Cryptocurrency is. Cryptocurrency is worth what it is because people are willing to say Okay, we believe that Bitcoin is worth 30,000 or $60,000. The problem is because there's nothing backing it. It is extremely volatile. Okay, so I have noticed recently. Bitcoin Ethereum go up or down in value by as much as 50%. It's that volatile, meaning that if you really got rich quick, and you bought a theory, um when it was low or Bitcoin, and you now had a million dollars in less than seven days, a million dollars goes down to $500,000 Just cut in half. Now come on. Let's reason together. If you had money in the stock market, and it was that volatile and a million dollars would drop down to 500,000. And then 500,000 would climb back up to a million and that would you want to rely on that kind of investment? For retirement income. See, uh, Bitcoin ethereum. Crypto currency is not a good medium to rely on for predictable cash flow our income. That's not what it's about. It would be a highly speculative, volatile stock and you would not be having your retirement funds. In something like that. If you really think about it now, if you want to play with your money, Okay, if you have money that you can gamble with or play with Yeah, You know, a couple of years ago, I think we invested about $5000 in Ethereum, and within a year, so I mean, it went down to less than 2000. And then it's been as high as 19 or 20,000. And I don't watch this on a on a daily basis by any means, And then all of a sudden it's down to nine or 10,000 and so forth, And so it's very volatile. If you like to play with things like that. Just make sure I would recommend you do it with money that as they say, you can afford to lose or you're not going to have to rely on that money being worth X amount in case of an emergency. So this would be money that you really don't care about it. You don't really have to have on hand in case of some emergency or need okay, especially for retirement income. So I would recommend if you are interested in playing around with Cryptocurrency that you sort of use it or view it like a lot of our clients who invest in real estate. I have many clients who make a lot of money in real estate to many of them will buy properties, fix them up and flip them because they don't like to be landlords, others and they do acquire several different homes, and now many of them have portfolios of 40 and 50 rental homes, and that's fine. Some use it with commercial properties and strip malls. Others they don't even own real estate. They go out and they rent a three bedroom apartment and they get permission from the landlord. To furnish it and put it out on Airbnb. And then they end up renting it out, and they have a cleaning service. They're renting the apartment from the landlord for 1000 a month or 2000 month, but they turn around on Airbnb and they bring in double that, so they cover their cost. Does that make sense? And many of them have made a as much as 50 to $100,000 a month and they don't even own a single piece of real estate. But The savvy ones. They take their profits off the table, and they park that money in my favorite vehicle, the laser fund. Their clients of ours White because the laser fund is an acronym that stands for liquid assets safely earning returns, and the laser fund is not a get rich, quick type of investment. It's a long term investment, but it's highly liquid. It has safety of principle. You don't lose when the markets go down. You mean make very much money, but you don't lose. And you earn predictable rates of return that average between 7 to 10%, but sometimes much higher than that. We've had clients lock in gains this very year of 61.33% on money in their laser funds that they linked In February March of 2020 when the market tanked, and then a year later, they had gains. They were credited 61.33%. We have a client that had over $800,000. A year ago.

Cloud seeding can boost mountain snowpack

"In the spring melting snowpack in the rocky mountains feeds the colorado river which supplies drinking water to forty million people across seven states but as the climate warms snowpack is shrinking prompting concerns over water shortages. One technique that can help increase precipitation is called cloud seeding is been used in some areas. Since the nineteen fifties a machine or airplane releases particles such as silver iodide into developing storm clouds. The particles attract molecules of water vapor. And if the conditions are right those droplets for more rain or snow. Mohammed mahmoud is with the central arizona water conservation district which is funded cloud seeding projects in the rocky mountains for years. The type of cloud seeding we're interested in is winter cloud city and what that does is enhance the snowpack so that ultimately in the spring that enhance no pack increase the runoff that water users rely on downstream. The practice remains controversial but researchers have found that cloud seeding can increase the amount of precipitation that falls the storm by up to fifteen percent so it can help reduce the impact of climate change on critical water supplies.

"rocky mountain" Discussed on KSFO-AM

"Nestled at the base of the majestic Rocky Mountain. This show is about empowering you people and organizations that want to optimize their assets, minimize taxes and empower their authentic wealth. Well, folks, you may be aware That I have a YouTube channel. It's called three dimensional wealth. The number three. It's free when you subscribe, and you may want to look into it because I post an in depth answer. To a specific financial question. Five days a week minimum that has been asked to 3 400 times or more every month for the last several months. So recently, I was answering the question. What does the average American have saved at retirement? It's interesting. People like to compare how much they have saved compared to most Americans now, hopefully You're not into being an average saver or person, but I'll answer it simply not near enough, Okay. It's sort of like when people would see me and they go well dug. Golly, how's your business going? How many people do you have working for you now? And I would always say, oh, about half of them just to get a reaction, okay? Now. It's like, Well, not near enough. Okay, Well, give me a number, Doug. Okay, let me give you a number. Uh, savers who are serious about retirement? They've learned to live unless than what they earn They ofttimes We'll save 10 15 20% even 30% of their income. They will usually have a half a million on the low end in today's dollars. And oft times as much as four million. I've actually had some people that have north of five million up to 10 million save for retirement. But I would say Ah, lot of people have between 500,000 to a million based upon being very prudent, a savers. Now. Unfortunately, there are a lot of Americans that don't even have 100,000 bucks. And so this is why many times that they plan on working the rest of their life. And that's fine. Because sometimes when you're in motion when you have a purpose if you make yourself necessary every day That actually contributes towards longevity. You don't want to become a couch potato retire. I've never liked the word retire. It means put out of use. And it came out in the industrial revolution. When they retired, worn out equipment. They put it out of use. And they said, Hey, let's retire people. Let's put him out of use and hire younger people for cheaper wages. And when people were put out of youse do you know the average life expectancy was only seven years. This is when Social Security came out. Social Security was originally designed on Lee to have to pay out benefits for an average of seven years when people were put out of use. Because if you don't have any usefulness left in you people just sort of died now at Baby Boomer Couple. One of you is expected to live 2025 years and by the way, as Social Security has not kept up with that. That's why The government has future liabilities north of $130 trillion that they go to us who they've deducted from our paychecks, and they only have about a nine month cushion if people stopped working or they stopped withholding. They would be broke in about nine months. And the Iris only collects in taxes in an entire year. About five trillion And yet they owe those of us who they've withheld from our paychecks, Fi ca Okay, Social Security and Medicare. They all about 100 and $30 trillion into us and in future liabilities. Where's the money going to come from, anyway? That's another topic I want to share with you that I've helped many, many people. Redefine themselves and retirement so that they can increase their life expectancy and enjoy retirement but not outlive their money. So when people ask golly, how much do you need to retire comfortably? Or what does the average American have saved it? Retirement? Well, most people where they have their money in the market and yet to be taxed, I reasoned Forum one K's Will likely outlive their money because of fallacies in there saving see, they have been putting money into tax deferred accounts thinking They would be in a lower bracket when they retire, and they find themselves now with with a respectable retirement nest egg, and if they take out the income they need to buy gas and groceries, the prescriptions, golf, green fees, whatever you like to spend money on in retirement. They realized that they have to pull out about 50% more after paying tax and a 33% bracket to have a net spendable income. In other words. If you could get by on let's say $100,000 net you have to pull out $150,000 out of a tax deferred. I rare form one K pay the tax to net 100,000. People say. Well, I don't need 100,000 right now. Well, okay, So let's say you pull out 75,000 tonight 50,000 pretty soon and that 50,000 will not by the same gallons of gas and loaves of bread that it used to because of inflation. So, with the current rate of inflation, usually within about 10 years, the cost of living has doubled and you will need 100,000 net after tax to buy what 50,000 used to buy. So that's why people outlive their money is the negative impact of taxes. Number one number two is inflation, which cuts the purchasing power of the dollar in half about every 10 years or so. In other words, that doubles the cost of living. What is the third big factor? It is the market volatility because most Americans continue to think that money in the market is where they all have their money for retirement income. And then all of a sudden 2000 won in 2003 comes along after a terrorist attack. And your account dwindling value down to 60% of what they had. And people go off. Oh, I'm gonna let my money so they tighten their belt. They take less income or they continue to take the income because they need it. And their nest egg dwindles down in value. And all of a sudden it's not the dream retirement. They thought a lot of people after 9 11 thought they had lost their future. They had to put off retirement seven years and then in 2007 at the end, they thought, okay, we're finally back to break even again. And then what happened in 2008? Assed. Warren Buffett put it, he said. When the tide went out, it revealed who was swimming naked in 2008. In other words, people were not protected. They did not have what I call a protective overlay. If your money is in the market, or you did not have a strategy.

Man who found Forrest Fenn's famed treasure reveals identity

"So in an episode over the summer i talked about the treasure which had finally been found by an anonymous treasure hunter in june and after being adamant that he never wanted to reveal his identity. The finder of the treasure chest has just gone public blowing. The lid on most of his secrets in an article written by a fellow treasure hunter. In outside a quick recap though forest finn was an air force pilot who later opened an art gallery in santa fe new mexico one filled with plenty of forgeries as arts as tried to do people unclear in nineteen eighty eight. He received a terminal cancer diagnosis and decided to hide treasure chest in some outdoor location for people to find but then he recovered from the cancer. Still he didn't wanna give up on his treasure hunt idea so fast forward to two thousand and ten when quoting outside thin treasure chest containing gold and other valuables estimated to be worth at least a million dollars somewhere in the rocky mountains not long after he published a memoir called the thrill of the chase which included a mysterious twenty four line poem that if solved would lead searchers to the treasurer fended suggested the loot was secretive. Way at the place where he had envisioned lying down to die back when he believed his cancer diagnosis terminal since the hunt began in two thousand ten many thousands of searchers had gone out in pursuit at least five of them losing their lives in the process and the chase became an international story and quote. And yeah i mean the whole thing really has been a wild story people have lost their lives and livelihoods there have been countless lawsuits. You can read all kinds of articles about that have been published over the last ten years leading up to this year when in june the treasurer was finally found and the man who found it decided to stay anonymous because he knew how intense the community of treasure hunters is any feared for his safety but then quickly announced that he had met the winner and verified. He indeed had found the chest the to also decided to keep the location a secret so that it wouldn't become a kind of tourist site where people might injure themselves getting there were risk damaging the nature around it but all of that anonymity lack of closure did not sit well with people who had dedicated years of their lives to finding the treasure there was instant suspicion and then in september fourth fin passed away. The one man who could maybe smooth things over was gone and those left behind were even more dedicated to making sure. His wishes were upheld. With all of that has come a number of court cases in particular one from a woman claiming that the finder of the treasure hacked her emails to steal part of the puzzle that she herself had solved. She doesn't seem to have too much of a case however since she thought the chest was in new mexico and it turned out to be in wyoming but the case is still proceeding in the winner knew that his name would be released to the public as it goes on so he decided to preempt that by outing himself on his own terms the winner. Is jack still a thirty two year. Old medical student originally from michigan. He's keeping as many personal details as possible under wraps to protect his privacy but he does have a bit of a digital paper trail before to med school. He worked briefly at the onion and as a freelance writer. In fact he is the guy who wrote that totally inaccurate article eight years ago trying out matthew inman of the oatmeal as a far right wing. Republican in article buzzfeed had to issue a public apology for and which. I didn't realize until today that i still believed even after meeting matthew in minutes out by south west that same year back in two thousand twelve and discovering that he was a super nice guy. I still thought. Oh but some article made it. Seem like he secretly a jerk. I wonder if that's true. Which is a lesson for me in media literacy and not believing everything that i read especially when it seems pretty off base but also for all of us that no matter how many corrections or apologies you might issue online. There will still be tons of people who only ever see the mistake. That's a lesson that jack stiff learned early on in his career as a comedy writer and is probably part of why he has taken so many pains to remain anonymous in the case of backlash to him finding the prize. If and win all the court cases die down. What will still do with his findings. What does one do with an actual. The goodness treasure loaded up with jewels and artifacts. Stuff says he'll use it to pay off his student so yup the most accurate millennial answer possible to coming into unexpected fortune of. I still have to get the chest appraised which he hasn't done yet and between fins knack for forgeries and his wish that part of the chest displayed publicly so people can visit it. Who knows how much stuff will actually end up getting for all of his efforts but we finally have a few more pieces to the story. If you want to learn more keep an eye out for a book coming out next year called chasing the thrill written by daniel barbara. The writer and fellow treasure hunter. Who got checks to to go public

Gas stoves can generate indoor air pollution

"I'm dr anthony leiserowitz and this is climate connections about one third of. Us residents are cooking with gas natural. Gas stoves are common but research shows that they can pose. health risks. Brady seals is with the rocky mountain institute and environmental think tank. She has natural gas. Stoves can produce toxic indoor air pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide which can harm people's lungs and carbon monoxide many of these same pollutants that we find from our car. Tailpipes are also omitted from our stove. When we're cooking. She says the federal government does not regulate indoor air quality but when people use gas burners ovens simultaneously the indoor air pollution can rise to levels. That would violate outdoor air standards. People smaller homes and older appliances are the most at risk so seals recommends using electric stoves. Instead when you switch to electric you can eliminate some of this potpourri of pollutants that comes while cooking in many parts of the country. Electricity is produced using fossil fuels but seal says that as utilities transition to more wind and solar electric stoves will increasingly run on clean. Renewable energy so cooking with electric will be healthier for people and the climate

How Tall Is Mount Everest REALLY?

"Okay lauren fire. Today we are talking about mount everest. Which is the highest mountain on earth when you measure from sea level and today we're focusing on how that measurement is made weird we start. How about some old timey newsreel resort evidenced bothering his survey of eighteen hundred and forty one estimated his height pinton nine thousand feet back in the nineteenth century. When george everest brit was the surveyor general of india the used trigonometry to measure the height of the mountain like what we learned in middle school points angles and triangles totally. Yeah and incidentally the mountain got its english name from sir george everest but it was actually an indian mathematician. Radin seek dr. Who did most of the work and actually figured out that. This mountain is the highest point on earth. That sounds right for colonialism. Totally yeah okay. So how accurate was this trigonometry. Approach will i put that question to be nagaraj on. He's a geoscientist. One of george everest's successors at the survey of india office which still exists about is now staffed by indians. In fact i was sitting in the same chair. Our team location. Where you're sitting. Because i didn't want to change the room. So he says the trigonometry that his predecessors use throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was surprisingly accurate. I mean the standard height. Everyone now uses for everest that twenty nine thousand twenty nine feet. It dates back to nineteen fifty five. Wow that's pretty impressive. Okay so how did they actually calculate that measurement for mountain like. Walk me through it. It was not easy. They measured it from eight different points throughout langdon distance and everything and computer and took the mean. It was a very difficult matter very heavy machines. Heavy machines called theod delights instruments used to measure angles between visit points on the horizon and vertical planes like a cross between a telescope and compass. You might have seen municipal surveyors using them sort of on a tripod. Oh ya know. I've seen those folks reflective vests and their little tripods them. Yes yeah okay. So but for measuring mountains. They are these big heavy versions. I don't know how many hundreds of kilograms they carried forward to make this measurement it has slowed colored most of the time we didn't know work so the foot that was put on. Who's very difficult nowadays. Nothing much what the chinese are doing. Our a nepalese are doing their hypic instrumentation with the chinese and the nepalese are doing now involves satellites so instead of measuring everest from afar on the horizon with these theod delight contraptions these send a team up to the top of the mountain with a hand held. Gps receiver hey. That sounds like a little easier to me. Maybe but maybe not. Here is d nash mandar. He's gps expert from nepal. Who teaches now at the university of tokyo. It's a very harsh environment. There that very windy and you have all these battery or power problems and like the people who climbed everest. They come steadier probably more than half an hour. I think that's limit for them because they already exhausted. So they've got thirty minutes to connect to multiple satellites because they are solar flares and interference. at altitude. You can't rely on just one reading and they have to measure the thickness of ice and snow underfoot because you wanna reading from the actual rocky mountain right and not the ice and so for that you need a ground penetrating radar so another piece of equipment to haul up the mountain. Yes oh fumbling. With all of that on top of everest. You've got wind. you've got your oxygen depleting. The clock is ticking and that is still the easy. Part monitor. Says because all of that data from the top of everest. It's only half the story. Yeah so you need to know from his point. And that's the biggest problem then need a reference somewhere but we don't have a seat difference in nepal because nepalis a landlocked country. It's land everywhere. The nearest sea level is in india. Sitting knew how high this mountain is you. I need to know how low sea levels and you need a reference point sea level which it turns out varies depending on where you are. Yeah i mean sea levels tricky right. It's not necessarily constant and climate change is really messing with sea level these days. Yeah and has monitor says there isn't even a cenex to so here's how they do it. They measure sea level in india at the bay of bengal at china's yellow sea at many other points hundreds of them to calculate the mean sea level. And then they figure out where sea level would be. if there were a ac- right next to everest o- okay and then you measure from there up to the peak. Oh no no. No you have to account for the shape of the earth bishop of the art okay. It's a live swyto very much. Swyto right the earth is elipsoid. Soil like a oval-shaped watermelon because of the earth rotation makes it kind of bulge slightly at the equator. Plus you have to account for how gravity effect sea level in different places around the world and mountains themselves affect gravity so the earth at sea level this invisible line along the earth's surface. It's actually like kind of lumpy. So you're telling me that we are standing on a lumpy elipsoid. That's exactly what i'm telling you. So sea level is actually not level at all and the next step. You got map. Those lumps essentially variations in the earth's gravitational force. And then you get the gop lead a. I'm sorry a joy d- yeah so the geo is the shape of the earth at sea level taking into account gravity and the planet's rotation. And now you follow that joy to appoint directly under everest. And that's what you use as a reference point for the mountains height okay so after all that sea levels gravity you finally get a reference point you take that you compare it to your. Gps measurement from the top of the mountain and you get everest height. Well not so fast. Because there's also these pesky plate tectonics oh my lord. This is harder than actually climbing everest. I'll say i'll say right now. Yeah yeah so. The mountains peak is variable to like and i'm not just talking ice and snow like the rock is actually moving. Sri daddy jaw is an engineer and expert on himalayan plate. Tectonics i have been field kinney. My philosophist been between behaviors and then ever asked is on the edge of two plates. The eurasian plate and the indian plate and j has measured how the indian plate is slipping underneath the eurasian plate and how that is pushing everest skyward measurements for last you. One point four million yearning threes in high. Like a few hundred years. We can only do bring Comes johnny has concluded that everest is gaining roughly a centimeter every ten years. So that's about a foot every three hundred years other scientists say that's far too conservative that the growth could be three times even four times that much but i mean however fast everest is rising. Things can happen very quickly to change that like earthquakes hung or at least they have in the past. So professor john day studied a nineteen thirty four quake that calculated took about sixty centimeters off the mountains height. So that's at least six hundred years of growth a raced in an instant and there's been another quake since in two thousand fifteen and we're not sure how that affected the height because there haven't been any definitive measurements since then so i'm guessing you're about to tell me it's time to remeasure mount everest. It is indeed so last year nepal sent up a team of scientists to do just that and this year with the climbing. Season cancelled for kelvin. China did the same and both countries have been analyzing their findings and their due to release the measurements pretty much any day. Now this is very exciting yes especially because most of the surveys of everest has been done by foreigners british colonial rulers. There was an american survey was an italian one and professor monitor. The gps expert from nepal says yes. He's motivated by science and the search for truth and all of this but you know also in part by the previous. Why don't we measure our own mountain and so nepal dead and we are waiting for those findings now. It may turn out to be taller shorter. Whatever the point though is that it's changing and that's what scientists say matters to them. Here's garage on the former survey of india guy again. I feel the joint will here. Shedding the knowledge will use the society beget understanding. What is there a big deal if you come and see okay. I'm announcing mall. Dividends did this much healthy that who cares you know because she missed the learning that teaching how people understand how do people perceive almost put in what model you used. Then be be happy if he's happy about what this tells us about. The earth overall the technology. They're fine tuning on. Everest has all these practical applications from agriculture to defense and scientists say if their research gets more eyeballs because it involves the tallest mountain in the world.

Coronavirus surge has caused hospitals in rural America to reach full capacity

"Officials in rural America are struggling under the weight of the Corona virus pandemic in the upper Midwest and Rocky Mountain states. They warned that hospitals are at or nearing capacity. NPR's Kirk Siegler reports. Here's how things look in Rural America to Dr Andrew Pervy ahead of infectious diseases at the University of Utah Hospital, So the situation really has to be described his dire, especially in the northern Rockies and upper Midwest states that weren't hit that hard when the Corona virus raged in American cities last spring. Via traces the current crisis to colleges and schools here opening back up, as did sports and most extracurricular activities and states. Seeing the most new cases like Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota have generally not good, many restrictions in place. Nor is there much enforcement on large gatherings because of the local politics. They're probably not As drastic as firm measures is, we really needed to turn the tide? So I think that situation in 2 to 4 weeks is going to be groom. Hospitalizations usually go up two weeks after a spike in cases deaths a month later. Hospitals in cities like Salt Lake, taken overflow patients from surrounding states, which had shortages of specialists and intensive care beds before the pandemic in North Dakota Cove in 19 hospitalizations were up 60% over this time last month, and it's not just capacity that stretched This week, The state said it would begin allowing medical staff who test positive for the virus, but asymptomatic to keep treating Covad patients here's Republican governor, Doug Burgum. This is particularly important for us to help get healthcare workers on keep them in the game at a time when health care workers is the key constraint in our ability to provide Care for everyone, Burgum says. Some people still don't believe the virus Israel he pleaded for them to be compassionate anyway, because hospitals are filling up. Kirk Siegler. NPR NEWS Boise
