Ocean stratification and what it means for weather
"New, evidence, our oceans are changing faster than climate models predicted. I'M NPR chief meteorologist Paul Kutner here with climate cast. A new study out this week in the journal Nature Climate. Change finds. Oceans are becoming more stratified warmer surface waters from climate change mean less mixing from deep in the ocean, and that produces a range of impacts from stronger hurricanes to changing fisheries. So how does it all Work University of Saint Thomas? Professor John. Abraham is one of the studies co-authors John Welcome to climate cast. It's a pleasure to be on Pau. Your study finds the oceans are becoming more stratified. What does that mean? Well, Paul we're having this conversation in fall in Minnesota, and I know that there's a lot of hearty listeners out there that still like to swim in Minnesota. Lakes and they know what stratification is when you jump into a lake, this water near the surface is warmer. And the water near the bottom of lake is colder and what's happening is the lake forms layers of water that tend not to move. They tend not to rise and fall in the lake they tend to be stationary in that process stratification and that same process occurs in a major way in the oceans. Okay. That's a great analogy, and we know that those lakes and Minnesota turnover in spring and fall when the temperatures become more equal and that brings oxygen rich water down to the depths. Is that the same in the ocean wise that deep ocean mixing? So important? Deep Ocean. Mixing is important for two reasons I thinking about the water near the surface of the ocean. It's been heated up by sunlight month after month. In that tribes storms. So one of the reasons stratification is important, is it fuel storms? The other reason it's important when the water near the surface falls down to the bottom of the ocean that pushes bottom waters up and the bottom waters are cold and filled with nutrients. So when upward and downward motion happens, it's bringing nutrients to the surface so that see life can thrive. So it's important for. Weather and for life what impacts can we already see today from the climate change that's already occurring when the surface waters get warmer become more buoyant in so as we're warming, the oceans were heating up the surface waters even more than normal and that's keeping the near the surface they don't want to mix. So how do the warmer oceans affect larger ocean circulation patterns like the currents in the Atlantic Ocean? And the current and the Atlantic Ocean are so key for our weather and in fact, if you've ever wondered why is England, which is at about our latitude, why are they so much warmer in the winter than we are and it's all due to the ocean. What happens is warm waters off our East Coast in the tropics flow up to Europe and they keep their heat and that really makes the weather in Europe very very mild and as we warm the planet, we are putting at risk this natural ocean current. In. If we go too far, we could shut off that current and that would end up changing weather all across the planet especially in Europe what does your study say would likely happen to these ocean circulation patterns in the next fifty to one hundred years at this pace. We do not know right now whether the ocean currents will totally shut down however. Our results are telling us. We need to watch this carefully and take action very quickly to reduce global warming because it's global warming that is increasing the stratification of ocean waters and making our weather more while University of Saint Thomas Professor John. Abraham. Thanks so much for your perspective today. Pleasure. Thanks for having a Nice Day.

Austin Jochum on Bringing the Training Session to Life
"So why? Want to say this. So how it was there a better way to spell your last name then or would there be like Italic so I can have people pronounce it correctly when they read the headline here. Yeah everybody thinks like it's A. Job looks like Josh right here. But if you have really gonNA spell, we probably with a Y Y Y. Que you or something like that since last name just totally jacked up. The I I'm not GonNa lie when saw I think maybe it was when you asked me to. Be On your podcast dry your podcast before I thought it was Josh. So I apologize I just wrote in my little notes I put. Okay You M. so hopefully that eleven maybe that'll resolve things a little bit. So just for everyone out there that'll. Thousand my that was my iteration. And that's where we just have to get to a point as a coach and a company where people in the not to say. That's one of our goals. People say Yoga the right way yeah. Yeah. That'd be good. Creative Project Austin. So I know one of the things that I really like about looking at your work is I. Know that want to know you're really creative coach always love I know this is GonNa be an awesome talk and I was curious you did football I think track a you're into strengthening conditioning. What what was your formation in your years as a college athlete and then your choice to become the type of coach that you are now? Yeah and I think it's funny that you say I'm a creative coach because as a player I was anti creative like from from the very day one. Started lifting in high school with Olympic lifts like straight. Olympic. Style. Monday Wednesday Friday, all we did was clean and jerk clean snatch, and then maybe some bench presents watts and just the differ variation of that and. I mastered swore by those for so many years. That's literally the only thing I ever did. If. We sprinted if we did anything maybe some ladders we did but. The entire program was Olympic lifts swear by it was awesome in highschool got really strong at that. Thought that was the answer. When into my first year college at Saint Thomas Football Kaikan on the field first day we actually lifted before we went on the field we lifted and I was like smoking these guys like smoking on cleaner jerk like doing. More than a lot of seniors on their all I'm here I arrived I'm sweet a freshman. Football, we go to the practice that day and I I my mind was blown I had no idea was happening speed the game was different. Everything was different I'm move to like a robot out on the field and just moved terribly and I started the. To all right, what's happening in the weight room is not what's happening on the field and I need to find a way to bridge that gap and that started the full journey and I think it is a journey because then it was west side stuff on my. All right not the Olympic stuff. Now it's west side. Now it's the powerlifting. Now it's some box. Johnson plow metrics advance to my are still stuck in that weight reminds set of. Bands the bar now GonNa be faster and it helped a little bit I moved just a little bit better. But I think we're just because I was destroying my body a little bit less than the weight room and I still a little bit slower on the field and it was just this journey than it was bilateral to single lateral. Then it was traffic training and this this full hodgepodge of things but never fully breaking out of the weight room mindset never breaking into the movement onset and by the time graduated. At Saint Thomas I had some athletic success on the field and. But it was in a way of I forced myself into a mold of athletic success. I plays Nose Guard and my movement options were very small and I was watching other players and I was doing a job that was required to do doing his thing. I'm field that is required to do but the game move fast for me everything move fast for me I had. Very little movement options I had one may maybe one pass rush move and I was good at the pass rush move. But I didn't have a lot of options people next left and right and me that works out in quotation worked out a lot less than me that they had way more options and that's really where I started to dive into how can I get more movement options for myself? How can I move better? How can I give my athletes the ability to? Now that you have a huge output, you're able to lift a bunch of weight. You're able to sprint really really fast to do all these things. How can we give you options to do this? How can we give you? Can we slow the game down a little bit for you and that's Kind of a little bit of where we started the journey of where Rats Day and hopefully the journey continues for the next ten to fifteen years I can look back at this podcast. About Austin but that's kind of the
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.

Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach
"One of your parents doctor or lawyer and maybe as far back as they can remember everyone in their family has gone into the same profession while that's how it was with the Bach family all of them were musicians Johann. That's German for John. Sebastian Bach was born in sixteen eighty. Five in the German town of is enough. His father was the official town musician. There by the time was ten. Both his parents had died so he went to live with his older brother. Who was also a musician? Of course Johann Sebastian. Bach turned out to have very fleet fingers. He played a mean violin and by the time he was eighteen. He had a job as an organist. Bach held three main jobs over the course of his life. You can tell where he was working by. What kind of music? He wrote the first box. Big Jobs was official. Court organist for the Duke of Weimar so a lot of box great organ. Music comes from early on in his career. That Weimar job also had box serving as concert master. The head Honcho violinist of the Duke's orchestra when the Duke of Weimar decided not to make him conductor of the Orchestra. Bach was pretty unhappy. Then a visiting prince offered a job directing his orchestra but when Bach tried to quit his job in Weimar. The dukes said no way he even threw in jail for a month to try and make its point but it didn't work when Bach got out of jail. He headed straight to the town of curtain to work for the prince the prince had a wonderful orchestra so Bach wrote lots of instrumental music. While he was in curtain eventually balk moved onto his last job at the Saint. Thomas Lutheran Church. In the city of Leipzig. His title was cantor. That's what they called the choir and music director and it was a huge job box trained singers organized music for several churches in town and for the University of Leipzig and he composed new music every week for services at the Saint Thomas Church most of Bach's great choral music was written in Leipzig the choir at the Saint Thomas. Church still performs box music every week. One of the coolest things I ever got to do was sit in the church where Bach worked and listen to the choir sing. His music while Bach was alive. No one outside the towns in Germany where he worked had heard of him and people thought of him as just another working musician after he died people pretty much forgot about him until a century later when another composer Felix Mendelssohn dug out some of Bach's music and performed it after that the whole world recognized what a genius had been and Faulk may even be recognized beyond this world in nineteen seventy seven scientists sent the unmanned voyager spacecraft off to explore the galaxy. They put examples of the best that planet Earth had to offer on board and one of those examples was a recording of Johann Sebastian box. Brandenburg Concerto number.
Sailing Successes: Tania Aebi & Sarah Dekker
"Forward slash bedtime. History a big. Thank you to those. Who donated already. Have you ever seen a sailboat? A sailboat is different from a motorized boat because instead of a motor it uses wind pushing the sales to move it across the water sailboats. Have been around for a very long time but people still use sailboats today to sail in places all over the ocean. Some new just for fun others do it as a race. Many world records have been set by people who've sailed boats around the entire world. Tonight we're going to learn about two women who went on at mazing adventures sailboats. Our story begins in Nineteen eighty-four with Tanya Ebi. A young sixteen year old girl. Who was living with her father when he decided to sail his boat all the way across the Atlantic Ocean with Tanya and her siblings even though they knew little about sailing they sailed from England to Spain to Portugal to Morocco. The Canary Islands the Caribbean and back to New York City after finishing high school. Tanya wasn't sure what to do with their life. It was time to go to college but she didn't feel ready for it and didn't know what else to do. Her father gave her two choices he could pay for college or she could use the money to buy a boat and sail around the world. It was a big challenge in. Tanya made the choice to start sailing. She thought she could go on it with her friends and just have a good time. No her father said you have to go on the boat alone and you have to make the voyage by yourself. He knew was a chance for her to grow on her own. So in May nineteen eighty five Tanya and her little black cat named Tarzan set sail from New York in her boat which they named the Varuna. Many people said it was too dangerous for to go but she went anyway. Tanya started the trip thinking should only sell the Bermuda then. Once she was there she headed to the next point. Which was the island of Saint Thomas in the Caribbean as she went she learned more about sailing because she had very little experience before she left. She had lots of quiet time to herself. She said was very good for her. It gave her chance to think about her life to read to play with her cat and to focus on getting to the next point of Edge sometimes. She played her guitar other time. She wrote letters one day. It began to rain and a storm surrounded her boat. We've crashed against the side of the boat and water splashed into it. She was scared and didn't know if she could continue on but she realized the only way she could survive was to keep going and she did just that for two and a half years. Tanya continued her voyage through the Great Barrier Reef Past Australia than up through the Indian Ocean the Mediterranean and finally through the Atlantic Ocean until she returned home to New York Tanya became the first woman in a very young when at that to circle the entire world on a sailboat. When the news found out about her trip people all over the world were talking about her amazing voyage. The president at the time Ronald Reagan sent her a message. Which said you set your energy in youth against an ancient challenge on the ageless sees and you triumphed twenty. Five years later a woman named Laura. Dekker wanted to break. Tania's record and be the youngest woman to circle the globe by boat. She was sixteen years old at the time Laura was born in New Zealand during a seven year sailing trip by her parents. That's right she was born during a sailing trip. The decker family was Dutch which means they were from the Netherlands. Laura spent the first five years of her life at sea and continued sailing with her father afterward. She received her first boat on her sixth birthday. And named it the Guppy. At this time she also learned how to sail the boat on her own. She would often sale by herself with her father following nearby while windsurfing when Laura was eight she received a book for her birthday called the maiden voyage written by Tanya. Happy who we learned about earlier in the story her adventures Got Laura. Thinking about making the same long trip around the earth. During the following years Laura continued to practice. She went on smaller ships by herself and continue to improve her skills see until she felt ready to circumnavigate the globe. This means to go entirely around the earth in two thousand and ten Laura finally set off. She faced many issues with the law which said she shouldn't be able to do it by herself. Many people in her country believed it wasn't safe and she shouldn't do it alone but finally she was given permission to go. She left Gibraltar in August. Two thousand ten then made a few stops until she arrived in the Canary Islands. There she waited for a hurricane to pass then she continued to cross the Atlantic Saint Martins and other islands in the Caribbean during her trip unlike Tanya. She had a gps so her parents and others were able to follow exactly where she was during her voyage. She was also much better prepared than Tanya to make the trip from the Caribbean. She then passed through the Panama Canal then the Galapagos Islands and Tonga Fiji the non to Australia next she passed the Cape of Good Hope in Africa then finally completed trip at Saint Martin. She had traveled sixty four hundred miles in one hundred twenty three days at the age of sixteen during the voyage. Laura wrote about her experiences and the news followed. What she was doing. A movie has been made about her experience called maiden trip and she wrote a book called one girl one dream. It's pretty amazing. What people can accomplish

A record-breaking year for ocean temperatures
"So this happened last week. We learned Earth's oceans. Were the warmest ever recorded in two thousand nineteen and the scientists found. The past. Ten years are are also the warmest on record that paper in the Journal Advances in atmospheric sciences included a Minnesota scientists. It's University of Saint Thomas Scientists. John John Abraham is part of the team that includes some names. Climate watchers will know Michael Man from Penn State Kevin Trenberth from the National Center for Atmospheric Research. So what does this mean for earth's atmosphere and for us here in landlocked Minnesota. We're fortunate to have study co-authored jumped Abraham here this morning to talk about that. Hi John Hey pleasure to be here Paul. And we're also thrilled to have Georgia tech climate scientists. Dr Kim Cobb here this morning. Her work includes going deep into our Russians analyzing corals deep sea sediments and cave stalagmites. Sounds Fun while come back. Kim thanks for having me and we want to hear from you This morning do you have questions about our oceans record-breaking warmth or maybe you're a Minnesotan who plans to travel back to a favourite seaside escaped this winter. What have you seen in the Russian where you visit? Give us a call and talk to these two great climate scientists six five one two two seven six thousand or toll free at eight hundred two four two two eight two eight John. Let's start with your recent study. What did you find out about earth? Oceans Will Paul in a nutshell. We found that the earth is warming alarming and it really matters So when we want to know how fast the climate's warming what we need to do is measure the amount of heat in in the Earth's climate now fortunately As the earth warms because of human heat trapping gases most of that heat ends up in the oceans in fact over ninety percent of it. So if you want to know how fast the earth is warming you've gotta measure the oceans what I like to say is global warming is ocean warming and my research team keeps track of ocean temperatures and ocean heat and we report those results each year and we found that the year two thousand nineteen set a record that record had previously been set in two thousand eighteen which by the way broke the record from two thousand seventeen so I'm sounding like a broken record but the oceans are warming their warming extremely rapidly. And what we need to know here in Minnesota as it has consequences even here though we're far away from the ocean and you had an interesting sort of nuclear clear comparison of just how much heat energy is going into the oceans. Tell us about that. Yeah that's right so the fancy term that we use to to tell people how fast the oceans oceans warming is a Zeta jewel. Now you haven't heard that in a long time if you can pull that out of a cocktail party tonight you extra bonus points but a jewel is a unit of energy. I'm not talking about a jewel on a you know jewelry or a ring or hearings but a jewel is a unit of Energy Zeta. Jewel is a one with twenty one zeros. After it I mean these are huge huge numbers so the earth warmed. Twenty eight Zeta Zeta jewels or about twenty-five Zeta Jill's last year. And I. How do you wrap your head around that? And it's crazy crazy number so I related it to the the energy released by hero Shema atomic bombs and it turns out we are heating the ocean at the rate of five Herro Shema bombs uh-huh per second per second day and night three hundred sixty five days a year so I just helps put into context the scale L.. What's happening to our Oceans Kim? As John mentioned we know that more than ninety percent of earth warming is being absorbed by the oceans. How does that extra heat impact the atmosphere and weather systems? Well it's definitely going to be the dog that wagging tail there so obviously the there's temperature globally as John said is really set by the oceans and that goes to the atmosphere as well and so we're the ocean goes the atmosphere it goes and so that is warming up the atmosphere and that causes the atmosphere to hold more water vapor which leads to one of the impacts that that we know is being caused by rising greenhouse gases which is more extreme episodes precipitation as one example of how how disconnection between the ocean and the atmosphere? And where we live is tightly linked and Kim looking at Johns recent paper here in this work. How does that dovetail with the work? You've been undoing for so many years on oceans and climate. Well definitely very closely related. So what I do is recover Corals that are growing growing in the surface ocean from data poor regions and so they make those estimates of ocean heat content from instruments like thermometers and put their monitors through the surface ocean to determine that heat content but actually if he wanted to play the current Global warming in the context text the last centuries you have to go to our guys that can push those estimates back with geological records like corals and so looking at the call records Over the last millennium which is one of my specialties from regions where we have very few instrumental records. You can clearly see that these last several centuries ah of warming this last several decades of warming. stand out like a sore thumb against the background of natural variability at these sites over the last several centuries and so that's again that kind of information that we used understand just how unusual and rapid these recent changes. It has been. Yeah so both of you. I'm hearing it's all tied together. The oceans the atmosphere. We know that. And we're still learning a lot about precisely how that works John. Is it fair to say because I'm curious about this that our ocean's ability to absorb heat may be one reason that our atmospheric warming so far has been limited to ron one degree Celsius globally. Yeah that's exactly right Paul. The Oceans Denison incredible favor by gathering this heat. And it's time now. The oceans haven't solved the problem with climate change. The only thing that's going to solve that problem is if we very quickly Reduce our missions to near zero But nevertheless the the oceans have bought US time you know. Climate scientists have been talking about climate change for a long time in fact if I were to ask people win win. The concepts concepts of global warming and understanding was set. They would be surprised that was actually in the eighteen hundreds. I mean this isn't rocket science. This is an Internet age. This is stuff that we've known for a long long long time and unfortunately we've done very little about it in the longer we delay the the harder it's going to be to take action so the oceans have done us an incredible edible favor but let's not Rely on them forever. Because as Kim mentioned that he comes out of the ocean and it drives weather the atmosphere. There is more humid now than it was before. And that is the juice that power see storms and it makes our weather more extreme. It makes things it makes weather either. Go from one extreme to the other more rapidly in Minnesota. What what are we experiencing what we know we because we can see it as we look out the window? But we're experiencing more dramatic swings in temperature more dramatic swings in precipitation. So you might get really heavy down bursts of rain with flooding. But then you might go to a hot dry period. Did and go to droughts here going from one extreme to the other and that has incredible implications for society and you know as these oceans warm. Can it reach a limit on being a heat sink. I'm curious then. What happens to the atmosphere? Could we see a more rapid atmospheric warming when the ocean sort of hit their limit. John can you jump in on that real quick. I can't and it's almost like you are a member of my research team and I have you been spying on me. I should be so fortunate. So wh WHOA. The one of the important things at the ocean is able to bring heat from the surface water down to the deeper depths and we liked that because it it pulls heat away from the atmosphere and there are parts of the globe where ocean waters will fall from the surface down to the bottom of their other parts of the globe or a waters waters will rise. What we want to know is will that process continue And will we get to a situation where there's a stratification nation that means the layers are more or less constant we experiences in Minnesota. We have Kim. You may not know this. We're called the land of ten thousand lakes but I've heard we have something like seventeen. Thousands of MINNESOTANS really understand water inversions in water temperatures in lakes and that happens in the ocean and if that stratification Asian changes if the ability of the ocean to bring heat down changes then we could be inferred even wilder ride and the reason why I mentioned our research. Is We actually have a paper submitted on that topic Kim you mentioned corals you study those where are we at with coral bleaching and death in Earth's oceans today and where are we headed current trends. Continue well certainly. We've seen a really sobering last several years with year on year bleaching across the great eight bear reef But the record for the extent of Global Bleaching and mortality in the corals is really remains twenty sixteen which which is currently by the way still holds the number one place for global temperatures on record Only second only well of course. Twenty nineteen is second only to twenty sixteen in that in that statistic so for corals we've seen real decimation of some sites that may never be the same Besides like my research site in the middle of the Pacific Ocean which was devastated by that? Twenty Sixteen El Nino event compounded by The the ocean warming that we've been talking about and of course going forward Projections show that we're going to lose. Maybe the vast majority of current Ryan Tropical Reef perhaps as early as twenty fifty if we do not take aggressive action to curb emissions immediately. And so you hear a a lot of News coming out every year in the Great Barrier Reef researchers studying the follow on impacts of these massive coral bleaching and mortality than. I'm hitting things like the ability of coral larvae to settle and be successful after these successive events Really understanding that. It's not just the one hit that they take it's really The beginning of the ecosystem collapsing on itself and a number of horrible feedbacks taking place and and so That's something that I think. People don't understand is as well as they need to in the sense that corals are not just Pretty place to die which is where most of us fell in love with these things but they really provide a huge range of ecosystem services that are incredibly valuable to us as a planet including supporting Global fisheries providing protein for a billion people Even in so far as drug discovery for some of our most advanced drugs today so again Really horrifying news from the frontlines of ocean warming with very vulnerable ecosystems.

When it comes to ice melt, 'what happens in Greenland doesn't stay in Greenland'
"So this recent study in the journal Nature comes out and it says Greenland the ice sheet there now melting seven times faster than in the nineteen nineties. So why should we care about that. Well faster melt. Means faster sea level rise and that puts an extra four hundred million people at flood. Risk by twenty one hundred. The Greenland study was a hot topic for scientists at the American Geophysical Union Conference in San Francisco to scientists at. The conference took a moment. I want to send climate. CAST their thoughts on the study from of all places. Their hotel lobby. Here's University of Saint Thomas Professor. John Abraham Hey Paul thanks. Thanks for having me on today. Appreciate the chance to talk to your audience. So I'm sitting here with Dr Kevin Trenberth and we were just talking about the new Greenland ice sheet article. Hi Paul Kevin Trenberth so. There was an exceptional melt event in August of this year when Dan rivers of melted water. Where flowing across parts of Greenland and the extent of the melt across greenland was unprecedented at contributes tributes significantly to sea level rise? And you know the sea level is going up by over three millimeters per year. It's gone up over three about three and a half inches Since one thousand nine hundred ninety two which is when we had altimeters and space to actually measure this and so we can measure the sea level rise to millimeter accuracy. The ocean is warming That's expanding and so. That's another key part of this overall problem. So Kevin trenberth was talking about millimeter seal rises and people might think those are small. But if you have the sea level rise is by just one centimetre over six million people will be affected. There's a lot of people that live near close to the coast. This is affecting real people. Real lives is in the US and in other countries and we expect four hundred million people to be affected by this problem by twenty one hundred. This is a real problem. it's human caused and we've really got to do something about it. That's John Abraham from the University of Saint Thomas with world renowned climate scientists. Kevin trenberth talking to us from. I'm their hotel lobby of the American Geophysical Union Conference in San Francisco last month. They were sharing a recent study. That says the Greenland. Ice Sheet is melting much faster than we thought. Thanks for the perspective guys. We heard them talking about the consequences of millimeters and centimeters of sea level rise. But here's the bigger picture. Sure just how fast future sea levels will. Rise is a huge climate. Change Wildcard current forecasts project about three feet of sea level. Rise by twenty one hundred. That's based on a mid level greenhouse gas emissions scenario but many scientists believe three feet is too low and higher level projections this project. Six to eight feet of sea level rise by twenty one hundred. This new greenland melt study and trends. were seeing an. Antarctica suggests that sea level level rise is trending toward those higher and projections. Flooding is costly and dangerous as we saw last year in places like Puerto Rico and North Carolina and and the big insurance companies like Munich. Reinsurance say sea level rise brings dramatic economic impacts to the coast and to real estate and Insurance Trans- everywhere. You're including Minnesota so climate change in Greenland isn't like Vegas what happens in Greenland doesn't stay in. Greenland and sea level rise will be among the big climate story lines. We'll continue to watch here in twenty twenty.
Your Guide to Chennai, India
"Welcome to the immature traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about tonigh- I'd I'd like to welcome the show. Amanda from millennial traveler that's traveler with two l's the UK way. Amanda welcome the show whilst thank you so much for having me I I guess in Amanda has come on to talk about southern India tonight. Hi Amanda what's your connection with tonight. Well I must say that I got introduced. I used to southern India specifically because they actually had studied abroad with friends that came from China and years thereafter. They were continuously inviting me to go India. So when I found myself in Southeast Asia I decided to take a detour and reconnect with old friends and get a local point of view about Saddam City of Chennai in. Why should someone tonight India? First of all it does break a lot of the stereotypes regarding India. It it is much more of a spacious city than you would find other cities like Delhi and Mumbai. So I would say it's much less chaotic of an atmosphere. Secondly it also also been ranked one of the most safest cities within India as well as Southeast Asia and also in regards to safer steady for woman so I think that should be appealing feeling initially because I know some people have a lot of hesitation about traveling to India in general good least solo travel especially for some people that's a real barrier. Yes indefinitely so I would say if you want to start traveling in India I definitely go to China as your starters because it has been ranked for its quality of living. I'm safety nece as mentioned well I should say this is not our first show on India and so people can go listen to those what we do actually have one on solo travel for women. I'm Andy if you go way way. Way Way. Back in the archives put a link to that in the show notes. And what kind of do you recommend. I think China is the city. It's not too overwhelming. So you can literally explore the city with about four days and I would say there could be actually left for travelling to the outer parts. I definitely want to get into now for the actual days in the city. First and foremost you need to go to Marina beach which is really a world famous beach because it is indeed the second largest urban beach in the world which is pretty amazing and has such character and charm. There you can find a lot of carnival style L. activities going on as well as it's really awesome being a coastal city that I is you got to witness the fishermen if you wake up earlier of getting their catch of the day and honestly if you can do that and you get to the mark sometime. You'll have some of the freshest seafood you have ever tasted on earth. What thing I should have said before we got into the it is? There's going to be some confusion for some people who are more my age than yours who may not have heard of tonigh- but may have heard of the city of Madrid us and this is the same city. Change the names in one thousand nine hundred eighty six icy so some people don't realize that we're talking about a place they have heard of but that the beam has changed since they had it in elementary school geography or wherever. Yes exactly yeah. The excellent point to make and so the money will generation ration- May know it as tonight but yes. It was formerly known as Mantras that is true so everything has changed. Of course airport name would have changed. The railway station had been Chennai central railway but now has a very complicated name as of this year so can't pronounce that one but that's worth visiting as well. The railway station is amazing. Amazing okay so this old colonial style railway station. I'm guessing then neo Gothic architecture. Quite amazing I believe is built by a European European architects. If I'm not mistaken as one of the most fantastic rarely structured life seen so. You're a fan of that style of architecture or railway stations. The people were passionate about that. It's great and it's the main connecting hub to other cities edge. The train station which I actually took to go to Banglore India which is in a different state China itself being in Tamil Nadu and in addition to that I would also highly recommend going to the Saint Thomas Cathedral Fedral also known as the Sand Tom Cathedral it has a lot of biblical history. Actually being that in fact Thomas one of Jesus's disciples both his last ministry in India China specifically so they built that Cathedral shrine dedicated to him so I thought that was also very amazing and a great historical account of one of these disciples. Let's go back up into this a little more details so when you talk about going to the beach we're going to the beach for usual. Usual beach activities. Are we swimming in. The water is clean enough safe enough to swim in our their water sports. Are we sunbathing. What are we doing when we go to the beach? Besides you mentioned some festivals or other things that are going other one appeal again especially for seafood. Lovers is to come early in the morning anywhere between three or six. Am Ems you can actually wash the fishermen at work. They don't go too far out and then they'll bring their catch. The back sell it out the stalls in the marketplace so it's quite bustling there in terms of the food stalls and that's where you can get some of the finest seafood in India and might be one of the greatest in the world. I personally tasted so. That's something exciting to see their the fishermen activity that takes place as well as the carnival activities. That are there SPO- boot fishermen pulling the Rotunda. The short oh come all borough fishermen and that's what makes it so amazing so these people are obviously doing it for a living and you can see the whole marketplace action. There offers everything from actually getting the catch the day I just selling it directly to the Marquis. Sol's to having your food freshly prepared right in front of you might early. Indication here is that we're GONNA talk about food more than once in this episode guests and quite a few restaurants as well as city is very centered on food and seafood. I of course in particular being nut. It's a coastal city of India. Okay well in food in southern India being different food in northern India. But I think we'll save that for just a a little bit so you took us to the railway station. You took us to the Cathedral. Anything specific we want to say in terms of the railway station were an instagram opportunity. Is there anything else we want to do. Were there well the side that I was thinking of course instagram opportunity. I guess I what structure isn't nowadays. But that's where if you want to find yourself taking a day trip and not having to drive directly out of state. That's a great link to the popular route between Bangor and Bangalore is a very popular steady. My friends friends constantly go on weekend trip from China by car or by train. So that's the thing definitely. Is this worth noting. If you WANNA go beyond Chan I definitely make use of that rally station. The next one and then we'll get back to Bangalore just a little bit in terms of your side trip and then again in terms of the cathedral anything else you WanNa say in terms of things. Should we do a tour the cathedral or just go. Is there anything specific sites. You WanNA point four probably be necessary. It's quite small. Typically if you arrive during the daytime I would say it's fairly empty but it takes you back to your up. I mean whoever has been to the European cathedrals it's definitely that a European style and stained glass asked windows transported on this. They didn't realize I was in India anymore. And then the lower level if you want to make sure you go and check out the strike and like I said of Thomas. The disciple which I thought was pretty incredible. Somebody read about in the Bible and now we're actually standing in the last place. He was next four. We completely clearly leave Marina beach because Saint Thomas Visuals. Not Too far from there musty as well actually the lighthouse and you'll get a spectacular view of the entire beat this aerial view. And what's great about this. Lighthouse is one of the few in the world that actually have an elevator. So you have a fear of heights. It's not not a problem. Furthermore if you WANNA see one of the most famous Hindu temples within the city make sure you go to I hope I don't butcher this name but the capillaries swatter Campbell. Now I have to say I did expect it to be more. Grandiose incised According to local friends and Torres is definitely the most most a frequent did tumble and most famous temple within the city of Nine however I just WanNa make note for tourists as we are indeed foreigners. You won't get to. You have entry into this Ryan side. Just make sure people know that when they go in you can enter the temple. Few move your shoes. And if you're dressed appropriately be won't be able to get astrid entry but if you're curious about that and you want to see where the local people go. This is the most wickets in temple and the outside of it is fairly intricate. An an interesting is probably the right word in terms of all the different figures on this temple. If I've got the right one that I'm thinking of Yes. It is fairly detailed so definitely you can and make a pitstop there. I think that isn't a mile of Hor. Neighborhood was also a great neighborhood to explore the temple in a great neighborhood to explore. What particularly Eh would you recommend that we look for or do or in that neighborhood so in this particular neighborhood there are some great food stall can go to you so again? Taste the local food. They're selling their which will definitely vary from what you'd get in northern India cities like Delhi for example. So that's really great for their in the morning you can check out the south Indian breakfast and have dosa which is this is very flat. Thin layered pancake would remind you of a crepe but but a different texture. So that's something really great to try for their as well as looking for any kind of souvenirs related to the Hindu temple related to you. The dress buying stories for example. It's a perfect place to go from Bulle. Shopping food is do so for breakfast. Eaten with anything else. This is like a pancake so is fresh off the griddle the food stall or do you have it with something. I don't know well even have it either way. Actually but typically I guess it can be served with Chutney. So in my case thing I was introduced in two by the southern Indians is the coconut Chutney. I don't know how common it is in the north but I quite around coconut with other types of herbs and spices attitude so that was really delicious and surprisingly filling breakfasts to have anything else. We should grab from a food stall while we're into definitely you want to check out the Beer Yanni which is classic Indian dish one of my other favorites. I've found was the mango curry. And now this might be unheard of to a lot of people. Because I'll about. How great will curry taste? But through a monster. Ah Skeptical about this dish but it turned out to be really delicious and not very sweet at all. But Savory when we should say Brioni funded all over the country not really a northern dish. Basically coming from the Muslims who came in and very similar to dishes that you would find in Afghanistan for instance her for Pakistan although spicier. It usually probably down here in southern India. Yes you got like. The seafood versions is really well known own for seafood so then that will kind of make it more southern in styles than like seafood phobe more dominant in this

Buckingham Palace, Jeffrey And Andrew discussed on Gary and Shannon
"So the palace is once again on the defensive Buckingham Palace all over this Jeffrey abstain prince Andrew situation well a huge document dump right a couple Fridays ago all about that defamation lawsuits between Virginia Roberts this seventeen year old woman who claims she was a sex slave for Jeffrey up steam and people are still going through all the documents or what's in there and slowly little bits are trickling out here and most recently it was the information by the pilot the pilots David Rogers is sixty six and he was the pilot on Jeffrey abstains private jet I have a question I want to know more about that guy yeah because he's like a Dottie Sandusky he was flying that plane he was living in that house and he probably had that door polder the curtain pole right he knew what was going on willing to overlook this right for the money he flew the chat he also talked about having seen some very high profile guests on this child rape airplane child rape air president Clinton Naomi Campbell Kevin Spacey a number of times now in this one specifically he talks about the the woman who was involved in this original lawsuit are really miss got free right Jeffrey it turns out that the deposition is among the court documents that we've been talking about like like a Shannon just mention this is the first time that both prince Andrew in Virginia Joffrey work on EPS teens that at Jack at the same time now that the pilot said that I was very careful to say listen I was in the car you know why in with my yoke I didn't see anything going on back well I don't know if anything bad happen I don't know if he said that but he all they say is that he did not accuse prince Andrew of any wrongdoing on the flights so I don't know if he said I didn't see anything he certainly didn't say I saw prince Andrew doing anything but why would he was flying the plane Virginia Roberts Jeffrey is this woman's name sure I think her Roberts is her maiden name and Jeffrey's now her married name that's why it's a slightly confusing but Jeffrey I've seen prince Andrew gill lane Maxwell and this young woman wore passengers on a flight from New Jersey down to Saint Thomas to go to Pat a file island had a file island now why would prince Andrew be on the flight to a file island if he wasn't engaging and peta file things or at the very least ladies and let's say he wasn't engaging in it but he knew what was going on I was happening under his nose that's the part that was also report yesterday that I read it prince Andrew would defend Jeffrey apps dean in yelling fights with friends who would say to him Hey you got to cut ties with this Jeffrey Epstein character he is bad news and he's a registered sex offender any was convicted of raping girls and prince Andrew would say something along the lines of you don't know him like I know him see and it's that kind of behavior at that points to him engaging in the same child rape stuff that that obscene was I mean him on the flights now in the flight logs as being passengers to that island coupled with the video that came out over the weekend it showing him in twenty ten to years after everyone knew I've seen was a child rapist in his home in New York is bad for the palace this is the guy that's forth from the throne and they had to release another statement disputing the pilots claims the statement said the evidence statement was submitted in a case in which the Duke was not a party and which any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue the statement shows a number of inconsistencies between the dukes alleged location and its actual location when checked with the court circular in some cases he's on different continents prove it okay well here's a here's the other part of that the woman who gave this deposition her lawsuit was not contemporary wasn't done in two thousand one so I find it very likely that you're gonna be able to trip up on some dates like that I mean this woman was said to be what nineteen years old at the time that she was super seventeen years old I think when she was on these flights what what do you remember what you were doing on a Tuesday and when you were seventeen years old no but I wasn't getting raped on a jet by billionaires I think if I was then maybe it would stick in my brain a little bit more for that scrambled your brain even more you were unwilling to to remember those those states I don't now a different different impacts on

"Again today. So luckily they had the option for both teams in the way. These, these are set up now where you'd only play teams then you don't play them again. The rest of the year you gotta get them in when you can't because only only division teams that you played you playoff. And everybody else is the twins are done. Clint Houston already. They're playing Baltimore already. Is weird way. They scheduled. Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. And, and you know, but it does grew up a day off. Does that screw up rotation at all? Will it still be Peres today? Yeah. Stay with what they've gotten to pick it up, again in play Chicago. And they say Monday, Tuesday Wednesday off. So, yeah, they, they should be just fine as far as the rotation that shouldn't affected at all. Listen to Rockall last night in pre game. So it sounds like you want to keep that rotation steady as he could the the guy's pitching current so that it doesn't get out of sorts such a weird schedule. Yeah, indeed. Hey, talk about baseball and gophers here. They kinda ran into a buzzsaw last night with, with Nebraska. While the kids, some lakeville Norsar watching hockey triple started to run. Big RBI velvet later, all of a sudden, the floodgates opened this Frederickson for the gophers at roughed up pretty good last night. They just couldn't get it. Right. They didn't. They didn't play well defensively in, in Nebraska games in Omaha now remember university Nebraska's Lincoln's, but it's still kind of like a home game. There they, they get a big crowd showing up at the same place. They play the college World Series but they really put the gophers back to I think aside from that game, every the top three seeds I think I'd beat yesterday in the big ten tournament moving loser's bracket, which is really unusual. But also nations, that much tougher for the gophers because that tells you what the loser brackets go look like trying to come back to their so last year, they won the super regional against Oregon state and this year they've got a couple of injuries notably max Meyer. But they just haven't had that same magic. So that, that is now along. Long road to come back. Hey, something else happened yesterday, timber wolves made some news as they will be saying goodbye to all of their assistant coaches with the exception of one of Melik Allen. But what is, is that should that be a surprise where once, you know, that you are no longer the interim coach? Do you say I wanna make this? My team put my stamp on this. I don't know who had what to say about it. I do think that Gerson Rosa's will have a lot to say about these things. And I do think this is just my deduction, watching him the press conference the way operates that he is going to be very much in every decision that's made in every decision that Ryan makes you know, they say it's a partnership, but I think he's I think he he's in his mind. He's got to got one if he loves this stuff. So, so, I was, I was surprised he'd never know how that's gonna turn out when Sistan coaches in terrible for assistant coaches. In every sport. Because head coach is leaving these, you know, some form of a golden parachute assistant coaches, it's not that way and now this late in the game hope they all contracts for next year. They get paid on because it's late in the game. You can't just find work, and it's a difficult thing that one coaches son I've seen that twelve year old fee numb on was just a great basketball player. And okay. You know, he's going to be great basketball player wherever he is wanted the next school in India, and you try to find a way, and then that's just tough stuff shortly before you join us, we had a conversation with Phil Esten from Saint Thomas, it became official yesterday that the Tommy's will be involuntarily removed two years down the road from the AC. We touched on the idea of moving up, or, or perhaps, being approached by other D three schools d two schools. Give me your thoughts where the Tommy's go from here. I well fortified do they've got money in that, that's a big part of it. And they've got location and, you know, I it's up to them in terms of what they want to visit to be what they want. They lum. That'd be I think there are semi ready for this, if they go to the I see they have what you call natural traveling partner protesting cordy university of Saint Paul, at least in that conference going play games consecutive nights, and they want you close proximity wise as possible. So they've got that Naga standards leaving that league. So in some respects to say that makes some sense, the division, one part of you had to be in division, two for eight years before I go to one some people think that there's a Piel process that you might be able to win under duress. When you kicked out of the league is different, obviously. So maybe they'd have a leg to stand on. I think that they'll do something I don't know. But I don't see I don't see the stance league division. Three but the team from Wisconsin, and now and then you travel into whitewater along places for everybody so that works really well coaches that doctors at my schools were pretty upset. They wanted to Saint Thomas in the league. And that's why I I don't know how this went down with the presence and whatnot. But I think that Saint Thomas ultimately, we'll be a winner in there, somehow I think that they're going to, you know, estimates division one experience. He knows how the game was played across the country. You know, there was a budget expenses. No sense. It's you have to do scholarship school, but I think that this will probably ignite their alumni, don't donor base. And they'll do something big with it. That's what I think will come to. All right. Well, we will check some more sports with you, including, perhaps a change in an NFL rule. That will I'm sure most definitely will make the game faster might so we can talk about that in our now.

"Breaking news Saint Thomas has left. The my this has been percolating. Let's the vote, but language, or you're speaking, the vote of the conference in the I don't know if the vote of the conference was was at the conference that voted of the presidents of each. Conference vote. And I guess the vote must have gone against Saint, I just can't believe it. I don't even know what you talking about. Is the Minnesota intercollegiate athletic conference that Saint Thomas is in was Saint Johns and Saint Olafsson and you have to have seen in your name. You don't. Beck. No. The guy from the Duluth newspaper said, they're just a bunch of weasels that Duluth, I mean, this is CBS picked it up because they were kicked out because they had superior. They had a good basketball team in football team baseball. We didn't even make it to the Mayak Mayak tournament this year end big out upset during the football season. You know, some dumb coach at Saint Thomas runs up the score against some of the school, ninety seven to nothing.

"With daily weekdays at six on NewsTalk atrios. A lot of drama. Are there is? And a lot of people are scratching their heads. Wondering what exactly is going on Saint Thomas basically getting booted from? Yeah. Route from my act, and we wanted to dig down of couple of levels and talk to somebody who may know what's really going on. Dr Mark dean heart is president and CEO. He's involved in the Richard m Schulze family foundation responsible for the overall management there. And he has a lot of history in the sports world. Mark was executive vice president chief operating officer for the university of Saint Thomas, and also, he spent ten years with the university of Minnesota, men's athletic, including five years, heading up the department as director has he he's a graduate of Thomas. Daughters who graduated from Saint Thomas. He played football. They're completed track is an underground and was head coach of Saint Thomas football, and men's track and field teams before he left for the U of M. So he knows from where he speaks. Those were all the bodies are buried. Yes. Dr Daehnhardt, welcome to the show. Thanks, all good today with you. Thank you, sir. What, what, what was your initial visceral reaction when you when you heard this news? Well, I guess I had two reactions. I was just profound sadness of the second was feeling disturbed by a sad. I guess because. They're the relationship among the school has been a long one, it's been a good one. I made lifetime friends from among those other schools. My children did. And when you were a graduate of school, you have something in common with lots of people, you bump into later on in life. Those are those games where you shook hands and hang around the field or the court afterwards, and nobody was enemies. In fact, you were probably just across town from one of those schools, but it was also also disturbed by those because I, I understand that it's, it's precedent-setting. It's the first time that a that a school has ever been kicked out of a conference, for reasons other than violations of rules. The official statement said it was a parody issue. And I I'm concerned about what kind of message that sends I, I think I know enough about the athletic mindset of the student athletes at the other schools, and the coaches, and I wonder if they're actually an agreement was that I bet they didn't want Saint Thomas kicked out. They just wanted to beat saying on this, and they probably want those schools to provide them with all the resources they needed to be competitive. But it's not the kind of mindset, I think that most. Most of them would have. And also, I think it also depends a maybe unintended negative kind of the message that if, if something's making you feel uncomfortable. We're going to get rid of that something. And in this case, it might have been Saint Thomas with a perception, doctor dean hard. I mean it is from correct me if I'm wrong level playing field right now. And yet, the perception is that Saint Thomas just one a lot more games. That's the reality, and that competitors didn't like that. And people talk about the enrollment Saint Thomas has a bigger enrollment more students more opportunities for for winning at the end of the day. But again, it seems to me as an outside observer, yet somebody who's interested in this that Saint Thomas has been penalized for doing things. Very very well and for winning. Yeah. And I'm, I'm glad that you brought up the enrollment issue because that initially was lobbed out there as being one of the reasons that the other presidents were saying Saint Thomas had it unfair advantage. And I'm afraid that's, that's just a Canard. That's a false kind of an argument when you look at a school like Duke or a school, like Gonzaga, they both have undergraduate enrollments. That are not dissimilar to same Thomas in about the six thousand range, but any athlete who goes to a division, three school is recruited athlete in high school. If you have a large enrollment, and you're going to kids for maybe the first time asking them to try sport. Having numbers is very important by the time you're in college, especially in a highly competitive division three college. Like all the ACC schools are involvement. Is it makes makes almost no difference? The question is, whether you're providing financial aid by the same rules at all other division, three schools are providing if I am Saint Thomas was doing that in the announcement today that am I see presidents were careful to say that, there were no violations. The same has been charged with them. They were a member in good standing. It's just that there was a parody issue. And again, part of the message might be to whatever school happens to ascend to the top of the conference and replay. Place. Saint Thomas as being the most successful. It's a question of when parody becomes a problem for that school? It's interesting that they quote parody so much because Saint Thomas finished, third behind Saint John's and Beth last year and football, Saint John's has two national championships. And, and Saint Thomas has zero and so I mean I, I see what they're saying that they are dominant. They do spend more money. They have a larger pool to choose from. I can see both sides here. But dot let's talk about can this be undone and be what happens next for Saint Thomas players? Well, I don't think it's going to be undone. Saint Thomas, as two years to find some other conference to be a part of. And that's what if it has to do right now, fill in as a very capable guy. And he's succeeding Steve Fritz says they outlet director the problem for him. Is that there are a lot of logical options? The m I c was made up of, of a group of buying private institutions in the state of Minnesota about geographically about the most logical connection might be that Wisconsin state conference of the wiig, and that's made up of a bunch of state supported schools, all in Wisconsin, and the same time, that's where to join that conference. It would create a complete football schedule. In other words, there'd be no non conference games. So something like a Saint Thomas Saint John's game would be impossible. Right. That's another problem with all of this is that it breaks up some things that I think the m I c became widely known for, and positively known for a football game that attracted thirty seven thousand spectators and set a national record. And I think Saint Thomas along with other schools. Brought a high level of, of national competitiveness to the conference in a great reputation. So what Saint Thomas has to do is fight another place to play. And it's not going to be an easy thing, and they cannot be an independent, and I would suppose there are some people internally who are probably talking about whether division two or division. One is an option. That's enormously expensive into to become a division, one school, you'd have to go through division to, and it might take twelve years. And then you might find yourself being cannon fodder for some big division, one schools that are playing money games. What what do you think based on what you know of the situation? What if somebody came to you for advice for council? What, what would you say is, is the best way forward for saying Thomas? Well, if somebody would ask me for advice, I was, I was actually thinking about this. I would I know in respect, Mark Coyle and think he's doing fine job at the university, but he came to me and Ashford vice I'd say, hey, Mark, I was wasting my time when I was back at the university of Minnesota should have been trying to figure out how to make sure that Ohio State and Michigan got kicked out of the big ten so. That I think Saint Thomas standpoint right now they need to find. They make a decision about whether philosophically, they are so committed to division three that making a move into a scholarship type of situation would be something that they're not willing to consider. And frankly, I would not have attended Saint Thomas if it had been a scholarship school. There were no divisions back then, and I, I wouldn't have recommended to my kids that they go to a scholarship institution at the time, the one thing about a division, three program is that there's no question that your education is first and foremost. Right. And you're, you're, you're never going to have your financial aid package change the result of whether you continue to participate in athletics or not. So it's, it's very student Centric, the student makes the decision. So it would vice number one would be the school has to figure out philosophically, where it is. I hope it stays division three. I think it would change the school. Substantially and change the culture of the school to move out of division three. However, there are great options in terms of joining another conference. Okay. It's sad. It's. Also, it'll be subject of debate among students. It's a learning opportunity. You know did did they do the right thing. And you'll have to debate both sides. I can see a debate team doing this. I mean, obviously from your standpoint, doctor dean heart that, you know, just because something's hard doesn't mean you should get rid of it on the other side of the parody issue. So it's, it's a debate and that's what I could do. They could. Well, I think you're right. And I do think that one good thing about this is it now that the I see presidents have made their statement. I think now they're going to have to defend the position that they're taking Bill. Now, this was all done in a very mysterious and most door. And at least now everybody knows what's going on and why it went on. And everybody knows this is not because Saint Thomas was somehow secretly secretly looking to move up a division or two. And it was simply that they were involuntarily kicked out of the conference. All right doctor, dean, heart Martine heart presidency o of the Scholtz family foundation. Thank you for joining us, sir.

"Can he be a guest? I don't even have to read the book beforehand, because I know that it's going to be a good book, and this book is titled how to think like acquaintances the sure way to perfect your your mental mental powers, and we began the program by talking about how many people believe that those who value thinking think we should choose between reason and science over faith in religion, which they consider to be blind belief, sentimental tradition in remnants of primitive superstition. That's what they say about. What you and I believe in. And so he writes about steps we can take to think more about acquaintance and the basis of the book the chapter headings, at least for the first ten are that based on a letter of ten maxims that Saint Thomas. Acquaintance wrote to a Saint a brother, John, we don't really know who he is your fee existed on how to study. And so we're reflecting on. What are some of the advantages to be able to think like us? Thomas acquaintance, and would was his advice to brother John on how to live and we've talked briefly about the first five maxims, which are speak, slowly and carry a big, heart and mind, the power of pure prayer from the cell to the wine cellar on crafting a study a place where you can love the benefits of friendliness to study. And as the first hour was ending on set your intellect free by avoiding worldly entanglements. And I guess I would want to read from their first of all he writes, though, he I'm sorry being Dr Voest those who would think like Acquinas, we'll find no time for inappropriate conversations, obscene language, malicious gossip or slander or flattery or quarrelling. In the one of the points. He makes within this chapter is that here in the early twenty first century, many voices are warning us of a novel tools of worldly entanglement. Indeed, they may even entangle or at least reshaped the connections between our brain cells doctor in a in a time when there's so much study going on about the brain amplify on on that particular quote of yours. Sure sure in Thomas's maximum. He says you do not get enmeshed in the words and deeds of worldly people above all flee from aimless conversation. So in Thomas who stay in the thirteenth century. He's thinking mostly mostly in terms of face to face relationships. So he's saying we need to be friendly with everyone, but be careful inform internet intimate friendships only with those who who seek virtue. But in our day, we have a whole new dimension of this a whole new way, we can be enmeshed in worldliness of others through the internet in our modern social media. Our cell phones, all these ways to connect. You'd have a huge influence on us pulling towards what we talked about the first hour that advice of curiosity or being distracted by all kinds of things, and it can make it harder and harder for us to study. So so they one example that yes. The technology may actually be producing changes in our brain cells that make us make it more difficult for us to focus on one thing for a great length of time. I sit down and read a book because we so often train ourselves to flip through click around in the internet just spending a few seconds here, if you seconds there, but we need to kind of reflect to be aware how this might be having a harmful impact on us, for example, one. Modern researcher said that research shows the typical person check their phone and check their Email and other data up to eighty times a day or sturdy thousand times a year. We're not aware of this. We're being pulled away like just distracted all the time. And I write that this works. We're kind of like the slot machines in Las Vegas, the psychological principle. They call intermittent positive reinforcement, you do a behavior more if sometimes you get rewarded for. But you never know exactly when and we see how this could apply to our social media in our our Email and things were we never know when they're going to be something worthwhile. We feel compelled to look because maybe the next time it is. So so these kind of media wasn't around and Thomas is a day. His advice is even more important to us today. I think in some ways that it wasn't his time doing even reflect be aware of this and say are we letting devices condition us and make us less able to think clearly a study for prolonged periods of time and really focus on in our intellectual. What's six a maximum is the invitation of? Of christ. And of those who imitate him and subtitled on you. Your explanation do not fail to imitate the lives of saintly and noble men. Amplify on this maximum little bit for us. Sure. Sure. So yeah Thomas has failed to imitate the lives. Louis a noble, man. I kind of tried to break that down into two parts, the saintly and the noble, and the first thing, I see, you know, you're write about we have so many things so worthy of our imitation. And again, you know, not all these states focusing on how to better not all these saints were scholars or academics. But they all knew how to give their all to God, they all send him to cells upon Christ. That's part of the reason I say imitate those imitate him because all the saints imitated Christ. But through their own circumstances their own personalities our own place in time. So I know for example, I lost been drawn to people like Saint Thomas Aquinas in his teacher saying Albert the great because they were academics. And I enjoy studying myself, but again, every Saint has wonderful lessons for us, and one particular thing that surprised me was a Saint Martin Deporres. For the fifteen hundred is asked to do a talk for Dominican group on what was his day. So I had to dig in. Saint Thomas will say Albert are often depicted like with giant books. So a holding a globe Thomas is often shown with the sun on his chest. Like, he's enlightening the universe. Well, see Martin the poorest is often shown depicted with a broom. Yes. Did he's humble jobs about well. This is interesting. What am I gonna learn about him? And I found there that even you know that he was a magnificent, man. He was a mixed race Spanish father, a freed African slaves was his mother. So he just great ability to draw people together in Peru. The native Pruvian the Spanish and the Africans and though he did humble things like sweeping floors. He gladly did things like that. He also had had medical skills. And surprisingly, some of the stories involve Saint Thomas Aquinas, for example. He said when he was sweeping the floors in the seminary, you overhear seminarians talking about something Saint Thomas that he didn't understand and at times he would either explain it to them or tell them where to go in the Cima theologian get to see Thomas zone explanations. So amazing, you know, by to the world that heaven is full of saints who can speak to every one of us said can give. Lessons that will inspire. So I think Thomas advisors to be on the lookout for these different saints, and what we can learn from them how we can adapt it their lessons far online for over fifty years. Our diocese has supported a mission in Jim Bodey Pru. One of the poor sections of of Peru, and you write in your book what a great boon, we all have in our heavenly extended family. That's the point. I went emphasize our heavenly extended family, the glorious communion of saints. God has given us through their willingness to devote themselves to him not every sane is an intellectual or scholar. But every Saint knows how to center his life on the things that matter the most and therefore can share valuable lessons that every one of us should learn with their Christ-centered heroic virtue. The saints can inspire and teach us on. So we're this book is important for each. And every person, isn't it? I well, let me say that. I'm not gonna ask you. But I'm gonna say this book is indeed because it relates to all of us in how it is that we can learn from from the saints, the absolutely the place. Everyone of us clerical lay men and women for whatever nation the world, whatever occupation, whatever difficulty, you might have whatever disease we might cope with there is a Saint there who who has gone through a similar situation who could inspire us in. We can pray to for their intercession seventh maxim is loving truth, regardless of its source and on the perfection of memory do not place value on who says what but rather commit to your memory. What true things are said tell us about the importance of this maximum. Sure, it's got he's got two and one that first section places. I who says a what kind of tie it back to his thing about the last that we imitate Saint Louis and noble man Thomas was interested in the truth. But guards us of who said it so though he was devoured scripture. Learn this saying that the church fathers, and the apostolic fathers, so deeply he was also opened the truth. If it came from the mouth of a Greek or Roman philosopher or Jewish theologian or air theologian. So he's opened a truth. Wherever it came from the person writing, it may not have had the entire grasp of of all suits. But Thomas have that openness he didn't care so much who said what what what was the true thing that they said, so he's open to embrace these truths by will say, partly because of Thomas zone powers of memory NFC because there's a great sense of gratitude. When he is discussing truths, you weren't from others. He usually does tell us. He usually just tell us the source where he got this information from and you write it. It sorta surprised me when I read it seems obvious whereas I kn- Stein in the twentieth century was praised most highly for his creativity, which led to his great accomplishments in physics Saint Thomas in the thirteenth century was praised most highly for his memory. It was said that he wants read and grasped that what he wants read and grasped. He never forgot. Oh, never forgot. I I don't know how many books I've read or I have. Well, I've read and interview people over the past forty five years to think that I could never forget. And you tell the story about venerable archbishop Fulton sheen. To illustrate how why he trained his memory and spoke with our notes you right? Well, delivering the homily one Sunday sheen tells us a certain Bishop pause for quite some time while he noisily shuffled his notes trying to find his place to the bishops chagrin in elderly prisoner in the pews could not contain himself any longer and called for all to hear. How does he expect us to remember all of this? When he can't remember it himself point. Well, made isn't it? Yes. I think so. Official XInhua like Thomas had a very very powerful memory and both of them also trained their memories. You know? So so he could deliver things from the heart when they spoke his orders using these techniques. It wouldn't be that. They would remember every single word of a speech, but they have systems where they could remember the key points in their exact order. So then it would leave them free to elaborate or get off track and find their place. So so yes, I love that story of arch. So j sheen who actually also wrote his own doctoral dissertation on the writings of Saint. But yes, that's another thing. Thomas also gave us the specific recommendations and tips on how to improve our memories. Yes..

I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or anyone ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else. Some Simpson people were marching towards the border. Like, it's the last time they did this a couple of hundred people came, and they you know. Most of them did get into the country. Most of them tired got tuck it out before they even made it to the border. So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men. Wait, most of them radicalized to the right? And we thought we weren't demonizing groups. He literally said we have to stop demonizing people. And then in the same breath said the biggest threat is white men. But I know that not demon. I don't understand the other part. I'm confused by drew is that I don't I mean, we haven't been radicalized. I mean, except for like by that galaxy far far away my case, but we're the biggest we're the biggest threat because we're white men. We're the biggest and we're on the right?

"This, we're going to turn back to dolphins. I feel like we've, we've set everything up to continue Lilly's journey. We're going to around nineteen fifty eight. This is when lily presents a paper before the American psychiatric association. Any makes some rather dramatic claims about the intelligence and abilities of the bottlenose dolphins. Specifically, the evidence that he cites apparent is arguably scant and anecdotal, but it resonated pretty strongly and resonated with the right people. So soon you had prestigious federal research awards rolling in and he uses these funds to build a dedicated dolphin laboratory on Saint Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, the communication research institute or cri. Yeah. In the most fascinating thing that you added to these notes is that at its height, this institute under lillies guy. Guidance was receiving half a million dollars a year in grant money exploded Razi, especially when you consider what half a million dollars was worth back then. Right? That's nuts that he was getting that much support. And it sounds like during this time he he had a home in Miami, sounded like he'd become fairly acclimated to Florida and right liked it a lot there, but he had the lab in Saint Thomas, and there is this really interesting nineteen sixty time magazine piece that I was able to pull. And it's this kind of fascinating like feature piece on on him. They describe him as a deep chested suntanned neurophysiologist. I like that that that must be where the idea for the George C, Scott character dolphin came from. But at the time that they came to visit him time magazine, that is he was working on an elaborate system of jetties pools at the center. The idea was that he was trying to learn about dolphin sonar for the navy. They were paying for the expenses of this construction in the idea was that they, they felt that dolphin's sonar was better than their own capabilities at the time. They wanted to figure out a way to. Verse engineer and mimic, yes, the the navy was definitely one of the interested parties that was won over by his his arguments for dolphin intelligence, dolphin abilities. I mean, he had some some convincing evidence, like you said, it wasn't all like a perfect, but when he he must have been a very charismatic guy. I'm oh, yeah. Because when he he gives these presentations people just fall head over heels for it. I mean, you hear it in his voice and you'll actually hear his voice at the end of this podcast. Like one of the things that I think he convinced the navy with was by dissecting dolphin brains. You know, we talked about this earlier. They're bigger than human brains obviously, but they also have as complicated cerebral cortex. And so this is when he starts planting electrodes in the dolphin brains, kind of along the same lines of what we were talking about the Monkees earlier, trying to stimulate their pleasure centers specifically with electric city. And this is the weirdest like this. Grossed me out this quote from the time magazine article. He said, when he first stimulated their pleasure centers with electrodes, the muscles around their blowhole smiled. That is the weirdest like, I don't know why just squeaks me out like the idea of a little smile for around and the, but the dolphins got like its head, peel scalp peeled back with all these electrodes wired into it, whatever the case, the dolphins loved it. In fact, there's an apparatus that he used to sort of train them with it. They could give themselves the electrical jolt and they did it so much that they became addicted to it. And this is this is this is a different story from what I you. You mentioned earlier, I in this nineteen sixty piece. They say, this is where he first encountered the dolphins mimicking human speech. He says that apparently maybe he's just, you know, the s them during an interview or something, but he says an apparatus broke down one day at the Saint Thomas laboratory, and he had left a tape recorder running and he heard a Donald Duck, like voice on tape recorder. Later on that was imitating him saying the words, three hundred twenty three over and over again. And then he also said that the dolphins imitated the buzz of a transformer in the rattle of a movie camera that we're in the atmosphere in the same laboratory space..

I don't think he'd been underestimated Leffler taking advantage of trials absence. The extra point. Well, they did the two point conversion when few minutes ago. Let's see what happens here on this extra point. Here's a snap. Kick up, and it is good and the Tommy's full out to a twenty nine to nothing lead.
