A broken system, a broken city: Beirut

"In Beirut yesterday countless people began the painful work of fixing homes devastated by a massive explosion on Tuesday. One woman who'd mlk posted a video of her mother-in-law playing the piano as others swept up broken glass. The music is bittersweet, the city is reeling. The moment of the blast no one was quite sure what had happened there was a deep bass sound for seven or eight seconds there was a rumbling. and. We thought it was a localized explosion, maybe a gas main that had blown up across the street or a car bomb in the neighborhood. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent. I A cafe. everyone, of course, left the cafe and started making their way home and it was only on the way back down towards the three Indian towards the ports that I started to realize the scale of the damage. There was, of course, broken glass everywhere carpeting, all of the streets all at the sidewalks pass through an intersection where there were several women sitting in the median holding cloth scraps of fabric bleeding from the head they'd obviously been hit by glass. And every building that you pass by not only the windows blown out but the aluminum window frames blown off. So. You realize that this was not a localized incident, but rather something that had affected the entire city center. The blast was felt as far away as Cyprus it registered as an earthquake in Jordan. It had come from the port of Beirut or something had set off an explosion of staggering size sending up a white mushroom cloud then a vast bloom of orange smoke. Yesterday the government placed a number of court officials under house arrest and again investigation. Declared a two weeks state of emergency. Residents are still coming to grips with the shock of the blast. Felt like it went inside us like a best our soul the way. I saw something bright and I lost my hearing for few seconds. An explosion just went out. The human toll of the explosion has been catastrophic the death toll officially more than one hundred so far, and that number continues to grow as rescue workers find victims who were buried in the rubble more than five thousand people injured by the blast and many of them had to go into a hospital system that was already stretched thin. We've had a spike in corona virus cases in Lebanon over the past few weeks, some hospitals themselves were damaged by the explosion hospital Saint George Hospital across the street from where I live. was so badly damaged that it had to halt operations and when I went by the hospital, you saw patients some of them still wearing their hospital gowns with intravenous lines in their arms bloodied from flying debris and shrapnel for nurses were killed. Fifteen patients on respirators died when the machines failed the other immediate impact is according to officials in Lebanon about three hundred thousand people were left homeless by the explosion. About five percent of the population of the entire country and what do we know so far about what caused the explosion? It seems to be the result of unbelievable negligence even on the scale of the perennially negligent Lebanese government back in two thousand thirteen customs officials in Lebanon confiscated the cargo of a Russian ownership that was traveling to Mozambique. The cargo was two, thousand, seven, hundred, fifty tons of ammonium nitrate, which is highly explosive chemical that is used mostly to make either fertilizers or explosives from mining and quarrying and other industrial uses. So this material was confiscated, it was put in a warehouse at the port and for six or seven years it just south there there was some talk of maybe exporting the stuff for giving it to the army to use but this required approval from the Lebanese judiciary that approval never came you've had officials at the ports and with insecurity agencies who warned this was tantamount to keeping a giant bomb on the doorstep of the country's capital. Those warnings went unheeded and of course, tragically on Tuesday it all exploded but I mean what kind of government would ignore warnings about tons and tons and tons of explosive material just sitting in a city centre the Lebanese government would it's almost par for the course for Lebanon's political class. This is the government that for more than a decade could not agree on a budget. This is the government that for almost thirty years allowed the same central banker to run the Central Bank Lubin, and to run effectively state-sanctioned Ponzi scheme to defend the currency peg it's a country that created a political and economic model that was totally unsustainable. Invested hardly at all in basic services even in good times, Lebanon can't provide twenty four hour electricity routinely struggles to pick up the trash piles up in the streets. It is a perennially negligent government and this is of course, a catastrophic example of that but it's of a piece with the behavior of this government over the past thirty years. So this is a population economy that was suffering quite a bit even before the blast it was the country has been slipping into a profound economic crisis since October the the currency. Lebanese. Pound which for decades has been pegged to the dollar. Began to break away from that since October? It's lost about eighty percent of its value on the black market which has contributed to runaway inflation in a country that imports almost everything from food and fuel to consumer goods. So, inflation running around eighty percent right now and for food around two hundred percent prices have become astronomical this summer we've had fuel shortages that have caused blackouts in Beirut normally three hours a day stretch as long as twenty hours a day this summer and the backup generators that people rely on to provide electricity when the state cannot those are either burning out from overuse or running out of fuel just one crisis after another point. which has led to widespread poverty in the country the the official figures the government thinks around half the country is now below the poverty line that could rise as high as seventy five percent. By the end of the year, there's been a spike in petty crime driven simply desperation. There was one man who was caught on TV robbing a pharmacy for diapers another man who robbed someone at knifepoint on the streets and a once busy part of town, and then came back to apologize for doing it and said, he he needed the money to his family. So it sounds a a years long problem has gotten really quite a lot worse very recently mean why hasn't the government been able to sort of keep things from getting so much worse? The current government was installed in January meant to be a technocratic government that would tackle this economic crisis and negotiate a rescue agreement with the IMF but. Six or seven months later it's made almost no progress. The negotiations with the IMF have really stalled at this point they've had about twenty rounds of talks. But is not even really negotiating with the IMF yet it's still negotiating with itself. You have the cabinet on one side. And the parliament on the other backed up by the banking sector. which are having this very arcane dispute about the scale of the losses in Lebanon's financial sector about how bankrupt the country is effectively. And so you have this surreal situation where instead of Lebanon negotiating with the IMF Lebanon is negotiating with Lebanon. The Fund has told Lebanon that talks are not going to advance unless there's an agreement on the size of the losses or if the cabinet pushes through a few meaningful reform of capital controls, law changes to the electricity sector things like that. Neither of these things have happened and there are increasing calls for the government to step down. Do you think that's the way forward I? Mean, what do you think should be done here to to bring Lebanon back to? A functional state though the problem is if this government steps down what replaces this government and a lot of the pressure on the government right now is is coming from the traditional powerbrokers in Lebanon the sectarian X. warlords who have divvied up power in this country for decades since the end of the civil war in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, this power sharing agreement they have it was designed to keep the peace and prevent a return to conflict after the war. But it's been captured by the. Hands up power based on sect, which runs a massive patronage network The World Bank estimates that it costs the country about nine percent of its GDP each year but if it were to step down without broader changes to the country's political system in this power, sharing system would simply be replaced by the same cast of characters who have ruined the country over the past thirty years. But that power sharing system was was there to to keep the peace to prevent a return to civil war, and that was the argument for years for decades when people in Lebanon would complain about the corruption and. The negligence and the inefficiency of their government, the response would be well at least this is better than a return to the bad old days even before what happened on. Tuesday even before the explosion though that argument was beginning to lose its weights with a lot of people here you have a younger generation of Lebanese who don't have the same memory of course of the civil war that their parents or their grandparents had, and so as the country slipped further and further into crisis over the past year, people have been more willing to to break away from this system than they were before. And I think the argument that well, there could be violence if the power-sharing system was stripped away after what happened on Tuesday after half of Beirut was destroyed by the incompetence of this government I think that argument is not going to carry with a lot of people.

Protests Become Fertile Ground for Online Disinformation

"Protesters in New York City last night, counted down to an eight PM curfew and defied it. Donald Trump has called in the military to clamp down on protests that continued across the United States and police presence was heavy, but the demonstrations last night were largely peaceful. The city of Philadelphia also continues to be under curfew after several days of protests and looting, and as in many other cities, we've seen images of police advancing on protesters, shooting, tear gas and firing rubber bullets. The Associated Press calculates that across the United States. At least ninety three hundred people have been arrested since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Saints of Spain; David Suchet Footsteps of St. Paul; Michelangelo In Florence

"Whether you're looking at Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David or you get caught up in a ruckus crowd at a street festival in Spain or even if you just listen to the wind whisper. What life was once like among the sun bleached ruins of the Mediterranean? Your travels can lift your spirit in many ways. Hi I'm Rick Steves in just a bit. We'll take a closer look at the world. Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on.

African Methodist Episcopal Church founded - April 9, 1816

"The day was April ninth eighteen sixteen. The African Methodist Episcopal Church was founded the Ame. Church as it's known was the first organized denomination and the US to be formed by black people. The AME church has its roots in the Free African society an organization that provided aid to newly freed black people in the US. Preachers Richard Allen and Absalom Jones as well as other people in Philadelphia forms organization in the seventeen eighty s facing discrimination. At Saint George's Methodist Episcopal Church in Philadelphia. A group of black congregants decided to leave the church. Most of them wanted to affiliate with the Protestant Episcopal Church since they did not want to align with the methodist who persecuted them so the Free African society opened the Saint. Thomas African Episcopal Church with Jones as the head but Allen led a small group of people who wanted to remain this in seventeen ninety four the BETHEL African Methodist Episcopal. Church was dedicated into service in seventeen ninety. Nine Bishop Francis Asbury of the Methodist Episcopal Church ordained Richard Alan. As minister BETHEL's Allan. White Methodist leaders develop the founding document of BETHEL Ame but as membership in the church grew so did tensions between the black people in the church in white authorities. The ladder attempted to limit. Bethel's independence doing things like threatening to prevent her to meetings. They still considered to be an entity that existed within Saint George's and therefore subject to its authority but Alan continued to advocate for African methodist independence. Even as white methodist escalated the tactics that they use to oppose the churches authorities. He turned to an attorney who advised him to add an African supplement to churches founding document. This supplement said that. Bethel's trustees rather than the methodist conference control the Church's property. It also says that if the pastor at Saint George's did not fulfil his preaching and Sacramento obligations. The trustees would call on someone else. On top of Allen's efforts BETHEL members rejected the actions of Saint George's ministers who attempted to assert their authority by eighteen sixteen BETHEL had around fourteen hundred members in the beginning of that year the validity of Allen's African supplement was challenged in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Alan emerged victorious in the case with a court. Affirming BETHEL's independence and Allen's right to self-determination as a pastor James Champion a minister at Bethel Daniel Coker obliged methods in Baltimore wrote a treatise about the rise of African methodism with and Allen encouraged their congregations to form a denomination April ninth eighteen sixteen Allen and coker called it black methodist to meet in Philadelphia. Coker was elected the first bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church but coker either declined the position or resigned and soon Alan was consecrated as the first bishop of the church as more black preachers and parisioners grew tired of dealing with racism and the Methodist Episcopal Church. They withdrew to align with the African methodist by the eighteen fifties. The denomination had reached California and after the civil war and reconstruction years membership in the Ame. Church grew significantly today. The Turks has membership in dozens of countries.

Why Do We Drop a Ball on New Year's Eve?

"Brain stuff lauren bugaboo. We're here every December thirty first throngs of revelers eager to ring in a new year crowd into New York. City's Times Square in the final minutes of the year. As the clock ticks. Away seconds towards midnight and opulent oversized ball descends from above and when it reaches its destination. The crowd cheers. The current times. Square ball is the seventh version to perform the duty of ringing in the New Year. The tradition began in nineteen o seven when a ball made of iron and wood covered in one hundred light. Bulbs descended a flagpole all the latest version of the ball boasts two thousand six hundred eighty eight crystal triangles and thirty two thousand and two hundred and fifty six led modules. The New Year's ball drop. Has Its roots in naval history inspired by the time balls introduced in the early eighteen. Hundreds these devices were fixed towers and coastal towns and would drop a ball all at a precise moment of the day to alert nearby ships captains. When to precisely set their navigational tools called chronometers? The current New Year's tradition is a particularly American American affair and the Times Square ball drop has inspired numerous imitators around the country and even around the world so today which is New Year's Eve if you're listening on the day the episode comes out I wanted to share some of the weirdest most wonderful things that people drop to ring in the New Year for more than two decades a city in central Pennsylvania Selena has celebrated the tournament calendar by dropping a massive Baloney spiced to meet is popular in the region and Lebanon.

That's about ninety.

Each the reason. For the change the organizers the annual event donate them to charity after the drop and it took too long in the hours after midnight to slice this up one gigantic Baloney. Apparently for twenty twenty a disco ball will be attached to the Bologna. Let's go next to Saint George's Bermuda where revelers avelar. Don't just get to celebrate a few hours.

"How the scam worked for a whole pile of money. A coach on the inside with set aside a recruiting slot for a full paying student who would be fast tracked for admission. The student didn't need to play the sport. Even better. Some parents went so far as to Photoshop their children's faces atop the bodies of unsuspecting water polo players. I do not know whether the story makes me laugh or cry for now prefer just to laugh, but what I love about. It is how this is a perfect snapshot of the American privilege Konomi, right where money buys almost anything. And it's okay to lie and cheat. If the end justifies, the means first of all, I'm particularly baffled by the former Yale soccer coach who took a four hundred thousand dollar bribe to recruit someone who doesn't even play soccer. Now, I'm wondering how that works like when you get on the pitch, and you just stand there loss doesn't anyone notice that practice when you know can't dribble a ball. But Secondly, it's something in the cartel college sports that we can't specifically blame on the organization of the NCAA. So. About this. And just chock it up to shady shady parents with privilege. My first reaction to this story was to go back to that sort of college athletes stereotype and often I think we think of college athletes as having come from maybe disadvantage neighborhoods. We think of college sports as a way to get ahead. And I had this immediate reaction that that system was being used benefit kids whose parents Photoshop their faces onto other kids. But of course, that's not actually how this system works for every kid who has to ride the city bus to practice. There's three more whose parents have paid to send them to the best camps. Hire the best private coaches often. Those parents spend more money on all of those things then a college scholarship is worth. And look at the way that the students in this particular scam have been portrayed is kind of innocent ponds in the middle of a multi-million dollar fraud. Look at that. And compare that to the way that the NCAA. And I'll bring the NCWA into this aggressively aggressively patrols eligibility for athletes who dare to make a dollar on their own name or image or get a second job. In addition to playing a sport forty five hours a week..

The battle the receivers worn by the musicians, and what they call the electric brain, the command and control center for the entire operation. The three different devices that we had the three copies of the battle. We're all slightly different. Because with each version we made slight improvements either to the way the chips orientated inside or the kind of Chit we were using so one of them had sensor which was ever so slightly upgraded to the one previous. And we we actually didn't know which button which chip. And so we are and we built them now each button talks these brain in the correct way or in a way that is unified between all of them. So there. They're all the same with a good analogy that they are using different languages before. Like different forms of communication or a good analogy would be that they had different prescription glasses on. Some of them wearing glasses that are only around for someone that needs class. Another good analogy could be some of them have their socks on backwards. They were still socks they still works that in quite Lakers. Good. Ralph created the very first prototype of the baton.

"Professor Saint George's University School of medicine in Grenada. Welcome to science Friday. I'm glad to be here. Thank you. Yeah. You looked at the effects of weight training versus walking and biking on heart health, and you found that weight training is more important than we think it is in maintaining our health. Yes. I looked again at their self reported data that you were talking about a minute ago number reported. Do you do you do weight training, and or do you walk bicycle, and then we look to see how how many and how badly did they have these four major markers of heart problems, namely, hypertension, overweight? Diabetes and cholesterol problems, and for everything that both weight training and walking and cycling were associated with weight training was better. And for many things weight training was the only thing that mattered and walking bicycling didn't seem to be associated at all. Now, what level of weight training? We you talking about me going to the gym and lifting if your way to working out on the machines, or are we talking about Olympic level dead lifts and squats and stuff like that. I I may have misspoken when I said weight training. This was only resistance training. This could be like doing a couple of push-ups a couple times a week. This is push ups chips free weights anything at all designed to strengthen your muscles. And this is a level of this is what I was actually interested in looking at was are the levels of activity with the average American is willing to do on their own without a major sustained intervention are those enough to have a significant effect and the answer is. Yes. Wow. That's terrific. Let me go to the phones to Rome and from grandparents, California. I drown. Hater go ahead. Yeah. My question is specific to that with regards so Olympic weightlifting because I used to do only muscle specific lifting like bodybuilding style and switched to Olympic team. And I feel like I've I've seen more results as Florida's having more strenuous workouts securities, that's better or has anything been proven that. It's better Dr Smith. I did the study was a population based study, I really wouldn't be able to inform on that. And and I know as a matter of fact that there's a great deal of individual variation in how how quickly strength develops how easy it is to injure yourself. What kind of workout is fast? So this study, I did it's really not equipped to answer that except that the biggest effect was people who did any and people who didn't versus people who did not. And so if you found a workout that works for you that you're willing to keep on doing that the best one for you. Now, why would building muscle? And because that's what you're doing. You're doing this this strength training. Why does that reduce the effects of say diabetes? Because muscle is an Oregon and when when muscle contract, it secretes various substances that are called Maya kinds, they used to their chemokines cetera, and they have effects throughout the body and one of the known effects. They have is improving clutch control. That's that's interesting because I don't think any of us believe, you know, believed in that or thought well, you have to can't just do weight training. You have to do aerobics and things like that. That's quite interesting. Well, you saw the biggest benefit of exercising. Your study was in people over seventy why might that be? So this is this was one of the biggest surprise we have because we expect it to see the benefits in a middle aged individuals like myself, but what we noticed here. And at least it's the hypothesis is that these are individuals who are probably compare it myself to almost like an affordable three or four zero one k account, which is basically you depositing. This probably are individuals who have deposited in that fitness Bank, all along their life. Probably these are people individuals who are genetically different than other individual work were able to stay active older life or probably individuals who live in neighborhoods that are favorable for walking staying fit. They have live near park. They have a zip code that allows them to do that. So it's probably a combination of all of. But at least at least my belief is this is something that you don't arrive to be fit when you're eighty or seventy five by accident to arrive is do it by depositing in that fitness Bank, all throughout your life. And in fact, Dr Smith, you looked at older adults in your study as well people up to eighty five years old that they benefit from weight training. Yes. The it's the effect was somewhat smaller and older adults. But that's because they started out at a much higher risk. The absolute risk reduction was much was probably greater in those groups. Ten percent of eighty percent is a much larger number than fifty percent of two percent. You know, we hear that older people begin losing muscle mass as they get older. And is it possible to regain it or stop it? Or even add add to it. Yes. As you as you get older, you tend to lose muscle mass. If you don't do anything about it. And how ever there's this interesting study came out. It was at the sorry. It was in the American. I forget where it was. I think it was in circulation the journal circulation. They found out that random icing people to a high intensity workout for two years, actually, reverse the signs of aging in their hearts civically. They're left ventricle became less stiff and more flexible. It's interesting. Let's go to the phones. Let's go to Eric in Waterbury, Connecticut. Hi, welcome to science Friday high. Thank you taking my call. Go ahead. I have a question. I'm a fifty year old male cancer survivor, and I'm really going to the gym about twice a week. And I get on the elliptical and I work my brains out for about forty five minutes in my heart rate gets up about one hundred ninety. I'm wondering is that next year Cise continue? Amazing heart rate of one nine. I almost wonder if you've got some kind of artifact in that measurement there because that I would not have believed that was possible. I can't get mine up to one hundred I'm in my thirties. So this is this is, you know, we should never answer questions specific to an individual because myself and Dr Smith disorder population. Studies again, your your target heart rate should be. So you're fifty you said you should be to twenty minus fifty so should be about one seventy and that's the maximum heart rate. That's what we're both surprised to see that you can get to ninety. I have tweet here from Robert says a avid cyclist for forty years able to easily ride with avid cyclist in their late twenties for someone of my age. Isn't it all anecdotal because there are fifty plus years of history? What I've been doing for my heart. And someone else says Abby says I have Zeidan sometimes I'm anxious. I worry I'm going to have a heart attack. I run regularly and very much enjoyed void going on my run while anxious because of these concerns is it possible that heart attack in this way. It's possible to have a heart attack at any time. But physical activity is actually shown to be a good treatment for depression, anxiety, specifically, I haven't looked into. But at least one study has shown that moderate exercise thirty thirty minutes of aerobic activity three times a week. Totally doable. For the average person is about as good for depression as Prozac. I'm Eric later. This is science Friday from WNYC studios. That's that's an amazing. That's an amazing statistic that you just quoted as good as precious Prozac. There was a fairly small study. I would love to see more follow ups on it. But in any case, if you have if you have depression than exercising out of depression is one therapy that a lot of people have reported success with let me ask this question about stretching out your exercise during the day. Can't if you're saying to do thirty minutes, can you do that in five or ten minute chunks during the day while and then you can follow up? So so there is I don't think this is this has been studied very well. But there is as far as we're concerned the the maximum effect. You're gonna get is from cumulative exercise. So it's not the it's not the if you have to go and hit the gym for an hour and a half to get the benefit. I think if you can divide it for most individuals who have jobs like myself, and and you and Dr Smith at just the if you can divide into this into chunks and do it fifteen minutes for let's say beyond the bike, fifteen minutes for weightlifting, fifteen minutes for swimming. I think you will get probably same of probably more benefit than. Than doing it all in one time and then injuring yourself. Factor smith. Let me ask you this question about weightlifting. How do I know I've lifted enough weight? I mean, do is my muscles get tired. Do. I get fatigued. How much how much should I know? The just working working to failure is a generally good rule go until you can't do anymore and to minimize the risk of injury you wanted especially once you're just starting out. You wanna do a large number of repetitions with a relatively low weight? Aiming for being able to do ten to thirty wraps until you get to failure is about right for many many slash mosquito. But again, I my study was population-based you might wanna talk to my general rule for working out is go to the gym pick out someone who looks away. You wanna look and ask them. Most people are afraid to the gym now because they don't, you know, they look like the fifth people working out they feel self conscious that they're not. Like making fun of a homeless person going to a job fair. Well, they do feel that way. And finally, let me ask you while what is your routine? How would you say the best routine to go about staying fit? So I came about this like most people come about, which is a family history. Having a strong family history of heart disease. Having moved from actually a city where you can walk it on from New York City to Cleveland where it's it's not as as easy to walk around. I notice myself that started getting some weight after I moved from New York City to here. So I I started slow. That's why always say star slow find find the routine that you're comfortable with myself. I vary. I on some days, I bike some days. I walk some days. I snow shoe other days in Cleveland. So I think very ability is important to us. We don't injure yourself, and you can work different muscles and for the average individual. That's probably the best advice is to have a variable exercise program, and your your study says basically bottom line just do something. Moving from lowest fit category to the next set. You don't have to be in the elite group gives you enough benefit to equal many of the medications will give actually probably more than many of the medications, we give for blood pressure or cholesterol or diabetes just moving around and getting from the least fifth category to the next one. I think is sufficient all right? We've run out of time. I have to move on. I wanna thank Maya Smith sports medicine, epidemiologist and assistant professor at Saint George's University School of medicine in Grenada. And while Jaber is professor of medicine at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. Thank you both for taking time to be with us today. Thank you. And how good thank you. You're welcome. After the break.

They were just out there doing their thing. You know, this would be the start of maybe a documentary on on finding out maybe digging around and fighting anybody in beaver or Saint George or cedar city or hurricane or any of those areas in Utah had seen anything like it before maybe the townspeople to kind of chime in maybe dude trek out to fifty one or even the test site. Absolutely. I mean, you say yourself best known as the corridor. Then I wanted to surprise if there were more sightings like this out there. Yeah. I mean there have been times where when I lived in Utah. There are places just south of Provo Utah where they were talking about seeing things that they didn't understand. And of course, being having family in Saint George in having them being, you know, back in the fifties being subjected to the Nevada tests, the military and the the nuclear tests. I mean, there are a lot of things we're seeing there that we're not explainable. In fact, many people are saying that when the Hollywood. Movie companies rather John Wayne Agnes Moorehead and others doing westerns. There are many times they were onset. They saw UFO's over the area. Wondering what they were many of them, of course, wrote them off as being experimental aircraft. And no one knew what area fifty one was at that time. And I don't know how long I probably nineteen fifties has had their hands and area fifty one. And most of it's been declassified knowing that they are doing types of experiments there. But see what's interesting is that you release this at a time when we're hearing all these stories about well, what has been called drone activity over England drone activity over Pennsylvania, New York. And and when people say they look nothing like drones the government says, well, they are drones and the situation in England. It's interesting is that while sixty people saw on December nineteenth over over. Glad Rick airport. The military and the police stepped in and said, Nope, they're drones. And when people were trying to look around for the drones to shut down the airport for three days. We don't see anything, but the radar picked them up. They're invisible. So were either dealing with drones that are able to cloak or special aircraft able to cloak or we have what you have in that some weapon that's movies so quickly or or some aircraft is moving so quickly that the I can't pick up on unless of course, like you say you're shooting something you accidentally pick up on this. And then you're lucky to have what you have. I just think it's amazing that you guys got this. It's very very special.

So after three years on hiatus the parade came back in ninety five and at that point again all those characters were introduced everything's good again. So now, I'm going to ask you a little fun.

But maybe not can you guess how long the parade is. Now. Sure point you want to I guess like two point eight miles. I think it's less than that. Oh, you already. Did the math, right? No. I didn't. But I'm in the in my head. I would say what would make sense as forty blocks and no more which equates to two miles. Okay. As like, what is that it is to five miles plant was good work plant. Yeah. It's. Remember somebody saying sometime in my life, wasn't me. Like that was the listening quiz. Like, hey, are you paying attention to me? Great good to know. Russ wasn't.

Superwealthy people on Broadway living in those apartments. My god. The parade around. Anyway. So. Yeah. Nowadays, it's much shorter walk, but it's far more bloated. There's all those balloons. There's all those horrible live performances.

That's true Fanta baby and saying, yeah, he's there to or she. So yes that brings us to today. That is the Macy's day parade. It has changed quite a bit. But it's cool to know that a lot of the things that were put into place like the things that we still recognize as part of the parade have been part of the parade since like the early mid thirties. Like, obviously there was that short break during World War Two that they'd had to take. But when it came back, it was still kind of the same thing. The live performances are more recent occurrence, and you know, now, it's on TV it used to be broadcast radio. But like they didn't have TV. So I mean that makes us a terrible radio. I know I think here comes underdog. Goes pretty big. According to Reader's Digest fifty million people watch this thing, which seems absurd to me. But I think it's like passive watching.

Or like me telling your family to get out of the rooms was Reader's Digest the source on that information. I was like I don't know about that. Watch. Yeah. One second. I'm I'm just doing counting. Okay. So hundred and eleven million people watch the Super Bowl. So I figure like, oh, that's international. I think that makes sense. Okay. I think more people watch the Super Bowl than Macy's.

"Plane touched down at the old Saint George airport, runway only to turn right back around and fly off around nine fifty a m a plane identified as a nineteen eighty three Beechcraft f thirty three, eight bonanza single engine aircraft caught the attention of students and faculty at the Dixie tech as they looked out the window to see the plane touchdown and head toward one of the schools buildings, a single engine plane. Oh, I'm sorry. That's the caption. I should not be reading. Looking out the window. I saw the plane coming down. So Ryan Merrill and assistant IT manager at the school who filmed the plane's landing with his phone. He came down touchdown in the gravel because the runway has been torn up. On the video. The plane appear to bounce on the runway after hitting the gravel as it approached the tech schools industrial building, which made some of servers, briefly worry that the plane was going to collide with the building. Instead the plane slowed and turned onto what remained of the old airport's taxiway and took to the sky once more took off on the taxiway. Probably hoping that nobody was taking a video of this whole thing. After leaving the vicinity of Dixie tech, the aircraft's pilot took the plane to the Saint George regional airport. Probably the one that he actually intended to land at first time. Saint George police officer, Tiffany Atkins the department looked into the incident. The pilot is from out of town and hadn't flown into Saint George. Since the new airport was built. The pilot also contacted authorities at the correct airport about the mistake. A check of the planes registry, shows it originating out of Anaheim, California. No further action was taken by police due to the incident being deemed a misunderstanding on the pilots part. I wish the FAA was like. I think so. Mistake. So I landed the wrong airport, and I went ahead and took off in the taxi way. It's just a misunderstanding, you know? Yeah. Yeah. If you were my shoes on the same thing. Well, yeah, we'll put a link to all this in the shuttle's. There is a. Video referred to here and it is. I don't know if you had a chance to see. I don't think our actual show notes has the video in it. But yeah, it's definitely worth if you go to the actual article that link there in the show notes, you'll see the link to the video and it's a pretty impressive, not in a positive way. Let's see. We had somebody sent in some audio feedback. And I wasn't exactly sure what this lady this young lady was asking. And then I decided that an even if I did understand it, I probably really none of us here on the panel, although were professional pilots. I'm not sure that we would be fully qualified to answer the question and I thought because it involves corporate flying, I thought who better than one of our listeners out there who fly corporate jets who better than them to give it a shot, and I forwarded it to a couple of folks that I thought were qualified answer it and I'm are, yeah, I'm r came back and sent some audio feedback to help us answer the question. So let me play the the question first and then play a Mars answer. And here we go. Hi, my name. You see. Right. And I'm interested to know love is more about private jets business more specifically of how many of big liners today offer to commercial pilot's the transition from the commercial piloting to the five jet business. I'm just inviting much if you can have some speakers, some discussion of what kind of contract or involved in such -sition would bring those pressure. The regarding financing gives in role and I'm blow likes to. If this business is profitable is it may be related to the future of aviation to being more focused on this and what is the future of such business? I'm also curious, are many of the commercial pilot's dreaming.
