"Three thousand doubling the date down there don't send their matching funds and we don't have that in there yet so anyway yeah we're in two days we are over half of the forty thousand dollar goals so that's really means thank you everybody actually see Westdale floor all this thanks a lot lot of people donating to two hundred and twenty three people those are awesome I know it does every little bit helps okay so the study of job well let you guys guess what it is isolated seniors miss what from their loved ones more than you know hi yeah I guess the hugs the hardest yes people already even yesterday with relationships yeah so this is our two thousand were surveyed half of the study group was people over sixty five and fifty seven percent said they can't wait to hug a loved one as soon as it's considered safe to do so now I have seen and they've done this a morning shows and they had a story in the pioneer press in the Star Tribune that about hugging it is key we'll bring you that there is a way to hug without you can see some but it's hard being with your face Turner division during mass and you can do it and all of that but a lot of people that might be in like as system living or something like that no one is even allowed to come in right I think those restrictions are being lost and a little bit any ideas but that's that's what they miss them they miss their freedom get in their car and you know running around them their families and then they're older teens in ninety one percent of people saying staying in touch and being in better touch with family and friends has been the key to getting through these three four Marlboro long it's been and eighty seven percent say listen it's self care to interview self and technology is keeping people from losing their minds seventy two percent only seventeen percent of people are doing snail mail mailing cards to stay in touch we're past that no me no I'm sorry but I'm just saying for there is something they do there is it was in the search ring this weekend about letter writing that there's anticipation even kids like getting something in the mail who doesn't except for when it's a hate letter Monday I love my hand but longer unit carried out just let me know in your heart just sat in for a quick second because everybody maybe and found all right there is something but I'm telling you about the hockey is very thing anyway so people one of the most looking forward to well life restaurants new friends on surge plays yes we are that like eighteen things outside of we could have done this study and I think that yes hence why it's yeah the six okay now here this is an interesting study and it was it was published in the proceedings of the Royal Society biological sciences okay those guys those guys though would you say there were all hyper aware of every cough sneeze and sniffle around and beyond yeah okay like beyond two great so this is a study from the university of Michigan that wanted to figure out our people accurate when it comes to picking up on legitimate illnesses based on the sounds that people are making since people are so hyper here knowing about this right now and even before covert nineteen researchers researchers say full of always been inclined to assume someone is really sick after hearing a simple cough or sneeze in reality many times it's nothing more than a typical of the throat one sneeze that you're you can't yeah yeah yeah it feels allergies or anything I sneeze is higher but a conflict if it's a deep I mean you can tell when someone okay yeah there's a side I hear is that you guys are are will be proven wrong that the more discuss team we perceive a sound to be like you just said that you just described what you considered it disgusting deep that you know right away when I if I had it I would feel like I'm superset the more likely we are to attribute the disgusting sound to be an infection or illness and they found no evidence really people can reliably say what the threat is from a cough or sneeze sound even though people our damn certain they can so that's really surprising because you know a regular car but you know D. Braun here as searchers said okay most people over perceived okay that's fair and that the average participant they had four different experiments and you've done this with me make my sis's that's how you act you do read out loud and in my elbow but they're very splatter sounding and I'm completely disgusted years I don't care it's disgusting that I big hardy how may these are all guys like it's like you're just going to say yes so okay but anyway what people do is series of coughs and sneeze yeah and some of the people worried really second some people weren't and all for experiments that they did at the university of Michigan yielded absolutely zero evidence that we can make any distinction what anyone is suffering from at any given time in fact the average participant only guessed correctly four times out of ten really so it just people naturally a sour associates owns a perceived to be discussed sitting with the illness but the research team said people should not jump to diversion says when I cough or a sneeze along but people are now as.

"And they stab at the whale with barbs and attach a hook to it with a rope, and they, then attach the rope to water, skins, or skins that are filled with human breath. And they're, of course, buoyant. So it's kinda like jaws, right? And they spear the shark with the floating barrels.

In a way, but it's, it's a sad story he seems to be delighted about it, though. It does seem to resemble the shark hunting sequence in jaws more than more than St.. It's not clear. What kind of wail Oppy and thinks he socking about? Okay. So we know the Romans didn't have the technology to do deep ocean, whaling visit, but is it possible, the Romans did participate in more shallow wailing than previously thought they certainly did a lot of fishing and fish processing. The Roman empire loved fish. They had like fish processing plants. Basically, they made stuff that's like, you know, modern fish sauce, cola Tura and, you know, salted fish products. So they were they were big on seafood and the fishing industry. But did they do any wailing? We, we didn't previously have really any evidence that, that happened at any kind of scale, but a study from twenty eight teen. Find some interesting evidence that might make us question that and this was published in proceedings of the Royal Society biological sciences. Two thousand eighteen by anaerobic Rigas at all and the authors, your point out that Wales are often archaeologically invisible. Meaning when they die their bone sink to the bottom of the ocean. And we just don't usually get much of a record of them. Even when they're caught or processed by humans the ten most often to be processed on the beach right and their stuff. You know, the blubber and everything taken away, and then the bones just get washed back into the water, and this study used DNA analysis of bones found in Roman and pre Roman archaeological sites. I think primarily ancient fish processing factories in the Gibraltar region. And they found among the bones that there were, there were remains of three right whales three gray whales. But also fin whale sperm whale along fend pilot whale adult and one bone from an African elephant. Oh, I'm not sure what was doing it? The fish processing plant also makes me wonder which if this was true since it's not a study about elephants, if we're talking about the, the extent African elephant, or the extinct north African elephant. Oh, yeah. I I'm actually not sure there, but so the authors used radiocarbon dating that place, the bones with an origin between two fifty BC in five twenty five E. So. The Roman empire period, and the authors believed this indicates that the historical range of these two whale species, the gray whale and the right whale actually included the Gibraltar region in the Mediterranean, Sea is Calvin grounds at the time. So in the Roman period the ranges of these two whales were were very different. They were much bigger apparently and the authors write that win these two whales species disappeared from the Mediterranean, it was probably accompanied by quote, the disappearance of their predators killer whales. So you're not normally going to be seeing orca in the Mediterranean, right? But they might have been there to prey on these Wales at the time when their their, their main prey vanishes. They have to vanish as well. Exactly..
