"This is an extraordinary story and a huge row between two big figures in scottish politics and it comes at a crucial time the s&p they've got elections coming up in may how damaging scandal be for the party and for the independence movement in scotland. Well i mean. I guess we know the immediate political cost in two months time at the hollywood elections. There's been a lot of discussion about whether this rives cutting three to voters. But i think is inevitable that these high profile evidence sessions are going to have a greater impact on on the public. We know that the smp needs to win a majority. Holly route to show the it's got a mandate to pursue sack independence referendum with westminster. Most recent polling shows that there has been a a slight dip in support. Both for the snp on for independence. And i guess the question is how much of that is connected to the current How much of that is connected to the the more people get vaccinated and there is perhaps greater optimism's of people coming out with pandemic and thinking. Maybe the last thing that we need is is another referendum. I don't know it's it's it's very hard to pin down at. The moment is very interesting. The timing of all of this. Alex salmond dedicated life to gaining independence for scotland. And it's something that nicholas. John of courses dedicated to now. Why is he picked this particular moment to raise this case and to challenge her leadership and to challenge the credibility of the snp in such a public way. He think. I think alex salmond is very angry. Very disappointed hurt by the way that he feels. He has been treated when i speak to. Smp activists i think is fair to say that there is a real generational divide. Obviously there are older people who are more familiar with his historical impact on the movements but at the same time there are the younger folk many of him came in after twenty fourteen after he had stopped leading the party for whom he is yesterday's man. I can remember one senior. Smp activist telling me just before the trial that they felt they always been an element in the smp. That says don't criticize keatley ri- on independence. Were not good owning our mistakes. And i think that's really key knives sued. If weather activists feel that the smp is made its mistakes more widely libby a thinking back to the original accusations that led us here in the first place. What do you think. All of this means for the metoo movement in scotland in the spring of last year. I remember suggesting that regardless of the outcome of the trial this could be scotland's metoo moment because it would spark conversations not about salmon versus sturgeon but more widely discussions about power responsibility. What's acceptable high to stop it. When it's not an i was really wrong during and since the trial the women involved her face an onslaught of abuse and threats mainly online. Although at the time of the trial they were issued with personal alarms by the police and people threatening them and even naming them online is still going on today. In fact in a very unusual move just after the verdicts and i think reflecting the frustration that they felt at being characterized as crooked spitzer's they released joint statements a week after the verdicts in which they described. The trial is devastating and recently some of them have issued a similar statement criticizing the inquiry after some of their private messages of the case were released. Msp's i think that scotland has gone backwards over the past year. I see it in the public. Discourse that has embraced descriptions of witch-hunts on covens and considers like it's amid sixteen hundreds where retrogade cds by women lying and making up sexual assault allegations have more traction. Now where a court order to protect sexual assault complainers is treated with hostility in some quarters as though they were no whiter principle at stake i see in the increasing violence of online discourse in particular there is a recent survey that find that a third female. Msp's have received at least one threat of sexual violence. You just after. I started reporting from holy route in two thousand and fifteen. There were three female leaders of the three main parties and there was a gender-balanced cabinet. This is a parliament there was supposed to be doing things differently and it has manifestly failed to do so. In this case there can be no polling on the wider impact on women or their willingness to report harassment or results. But i've been reporting for twenty years on women's experience of sexual harassment and assault. And i knew what it takes for an individual to come forward and because of the failings on every side every point in this saga i fear is now harder for women to do. So in scotland libby. Thank you very much. Thank you rachel. That was lebron works with all of her reporting on this at the garden dot com. Whether awesome very helpful explaining that can give you even more detail about his. That's it for today before we go. I just wanted to thank everyone who has a review. I recently.

"They very similar people. Well they both believe passionately in scottish independence I think in terms of personality. They're very different creatures. Remember one aide. Who worked with both of them describing. It like they stay. After a big political events nichola sturgeon goes whom with either the papers for or order novel whilst alexander wants to have a cutty and cardio with an entourage of special advisers. And i think it is fair to say salmond loves the spotlight. He's a brilliant debates. He relished being. Alex salmond being first ministers of scotland. I think nicholas sturgeon had to work a lot harder on her public confidence politically. They are differences between them to sturgeon. Made no secret of being to the left of of salmon and in fact some twenty four team. She was known as the only passionate in the hollywood cabinet. You could disagree with him and get away with it. Alex salmond police in history. As one of scotland's greatest leaders is secure and rightly so. I have no doubt that he has a big contribution yet to meet to politics in scotland. I know that. I will continue to seek his wise counsel we. Smb been in power in scotland for over a decade and the close relationship between salmon. Sturgeon is seen as instrumental to the. Party's success often nicholas. Sturgeon became first minister. Did their relationship change. Yeah i mean. Inevitably the the balance of power in their relationship shifted significantly. Friends have spoken about high hard. Alex salmond find it to adjust got to remember at that time nicklaus jordan was traveling the country addressing these massive doting audiences following the huge influx of new members that happened after the referendum twos enjoying rocketing approval ratings. And at the same time. Alex salmond was was back to being a backbencher he then returned to westminster in the snp. Lonzo sleight of twenty fifteen lost his seat in two thousand seventeen again friends that he blamed sturgeon Lacklustre election campaign. Tensions were continuing to grow particularly ryan. Alex salmon's much more gung who approached having a second independence referendum Not this point. It's worth noting that there were a few other things during the scottish government. Press team gotten in quietly from sky a by allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior by salmon to edinburgh airport. He denied any wrongdoing on. Nothing was broadcast at the time. But it ray suspicions of course and then in november smp. mcdonald resigned as a hollywood minister over sending sexually inappropriate text messages on then sturgeon instructed her officials to review procedures for dealing with bullying and harassment complaints against ministers as he say nicholas sturgeon decided to review harassment complaints against ministers and this was a time when many industries were experiencing a reckoning on sexual assault in the wake of the harvey weinstein scandal. How did this impact in. Holly wreaths nicholas. Sturgeon wanted to stop this new policy. She wanted to get up and running quickly and she specifically told the civil service thought they need policy. Shoot apply to former ministers to and around that time as we nine to complaints of sexual harassment against alex. Salmond were launched. The complaints against alex salmond were made back in january but news of this investigation only emerged last night. Today he spoke out. This was revealed in august two thousand eighteen when the story was leaked to the daily records and the record reported that these two females over seven. Todd's come forward. Detailed incidents of sexual harassment that they said were were perpetrated by alexander and and the scottish government was investigating that. I've made many mistakes political mistakes. Pass no mistakes. I knew that. But i am not guilty of harassing anyone. I absolutely deny any suggestion of coming. A new you've never sexually harassed anybody. I have never sexually harassed anyone an. How did alex salmon initially respond. He immediately held a press conference in which he admitted that he had beaten no saint as he predict but he vigorously denied sexual harassment. The other thing that salmon did was resigned from the snp. He said because he wanted to avoid causing entire division and then he announced that he had set up. A crate wonder to support his judicial review of this government's handling of the allegations. What is important. Is that complaints are treated seriously regardless of who the person complained about is i have been very clear of a belief in the importance of that another principle that cannot be applied selectively numerator. Ho difficult that might be for me for my party or for others. That crate funder attracted double the initial target within three days Thousands of people donate it ended up to claim about one hundred thousand patterns. And i think that really underlines the loyalty that salmon continues to command amongst both senior figures in the party and also rank and file independent supporters and in a way that set the tone. I think for followed. I've no doubt that those people who donated believed passionately that he was being badly treated a needed their support. But i know that many women's groups at the time had their head in their hands. Because what message did that send to other women about what happens when you make a complaint by a powerful man. Alexander continued to deny the allegations and actually decided to take the government to call over this in a case that concluded in january. Two thousand nineteen. What happened in that case well. Alex salmond was successful in light of the full explanations tendered by council to this morning on behalf of the parties to these proceedings. I will know proceed to make the orders which are necessary to give effect to the agreed resolution of the case. The scottish government lawyers admitted that a senior human resources official who'd been overseeing the investigation had actually spoken to the two complainants before the investigation began which was obviously a complete breach of process. The court finds the made investigation unlawful. They said it was tainted by a patent by and he was awarded more than half a million pounds in legal. Costs were taken circumstances which were procedurally. Unfair and in respect that they were tinted by apparent. Bias this then was a big costly loss for the scottish government but the story was far from over police. Scotland have been investigating allegations against salmond and in january twenty nineteen. He was charged with fourteen. Sexual offenses you covered his trial for the guardian in march last year. Tell me what happened that please. Scotland investigation was at st triggered by the decision by leslie evans permanent secretary of the scottish government to send the results of their internal inquiry to the police. Although obviously the outcome of the judicial review didn't have any impact on the trial itself. He's scotland's former first minister now on trial accused of sex crimes. Alex salmond denies the.

And you seem quite amazed. It was oh it was it was one ration cases design. Just i thank god or something like that. I think i'm not passing into laughter. Well plus faces. It was quite funny. It wasn't a snap election. The user thing there is something about our democratic system where the electorate can just sense. If somebody is getting too powerful and theresa may was she was had. This is terrible kind of heavy handed. Theresa may have one person party. I'm gonna do. I'm going to do that tweeting. Her cabinet light. They were little servants. Not even telling them what is going to be the manifesto. My point is when virtues sense. Somebody's getting too powerful. They of a wave cutting down to size now. It could. Well be after witnessing the astonishing abuse of power. We've seen from nicholas urgent doing legal abuse. Because everything's she's been doing is actually legal mortally. It is just wrong to use the crown prosecutors to try to chill over the scottish parliament to try to withhold evidence from being given in that parliament. So that's kind of behavior might lead enough people to think. Well perhaps we're all keep risk. First minister mika the biggest single party. Snp majority is something which is now something to be feared because of the way that majority control is being enacted in scotland. We we've seen this this beautiful creation of devolution. Something which. I believed in very very strongly when it was created. We've basically seen it being vandalized and corrupted by too much power being focused in the hands of one party and i think that rather than anything alex salmond is said and done might be the lingering memory scott have when they go into the polling births. Now i might be wrong. She might win a huge majority. But i think the threat to her isn't anything alex salmond said the threat to hers come from the. Snp's own overreaction and its attempt to suppress story. Alex salmond has given the attempts made to make sure that story was never told in the first place. James has boris johnson. Just had his best news yet on his union strategy. Well there the times relief aid. David they become monsters. Dr johnson's increase piglet frizz ability to escape from trouble and is remarkable but the single biggest to boris johnson. Partnership is the social situation. Now you see today..

"You could matching posted. It was so week of if these things as salmon disclose accurate because as in a very difficult position. Now we have seen pretty retell but it is possible to be found for broken the ministerial code and not resign. That was a departure from constitutional convention. Which was the view of andro. ministerial go. But i've always saw jackie babies. She was trying to get at this point. Which is you misled. Parliament and then realize you have misled parliament and did not correct the record with severity of bathroom. I is in a very difficult situation right now. And it is home to think that things have worked as they to have worked in government and his handling of this case in the same way when you listen to be simon tribes haunting. The things walked in the way that they should've watched the the evidence of reset phrase resignations inevitable and for that it might be nicholas stashes resignation. There are plenty of other people in keys embroiled in this whole saga choosing the has to be a full guy unless share there is going to be a full guy or a full girdle here. I mean as alex salmond himself pointed out house. We've got to the stage with scottish government basically admitting illegality missing it goes wrong most outrageous kind of mistakes in the way it went about this affair without anybody resigning so i didn't think so now unless remember that voting for the scottish parliament election starts in just four weeks. Time nicholas. Sturgeon is an award fitting. Even if she does want somebody's head she's going to waste until after the election. I imagined a coal for that head. Good right now. She will be thinking to yourself. I've managed to survive this long of even got to the stage with the pool. String going to win a majority a majority of votes in the multi-party system and the may elections so what can change now. Now the thing that can change for her is not any necessarily any dramatic twist here not any new piece of information because anybody who cares about this will have not learned anything technically devastatingly new today. What will change is a general sense that her party is now too powerful in scotland that it was a mistake to give the snp the majority control over parliament and that it is now abusing that power in the way that picks committee chairman. The way of its leans on the prosecutors to try to get as will in the way that it's is using power formally and informally to turn out to be a thriving democratic system into a one party cabal. Now you have to be a unionist to be worried about that kind of thing. And i think what the difference now might be. What's happened. To britain theresa may went to have her at election. The alternative was jeremy corbyn and yes the country did not one corbin as an alternative but nor did they want to resume to have a stoneking great majority because the electric just sense that she would have turned into a once she simply was not fit two-wheeled that majority and i have to say an over general election results of recent years. That one was my favorite phrase. I remember cooling.

"Sloan during rephrase announcement james's life on friday. We had at examined address. Nps when the scottish parliament after much. Rescheduling james finally the film fest minister did give evidence relating to the salmon inquiry and this has implications for the nick of the stash. And so what. I think there were three big star that moment i is sound. Spinal word is fun. State essentially said for committee eight eighty-one get hold of his evidence. You should own solicitor's because they want to comply with your request technologies. These tax measures is. I'm kept refund. Not said one of the most gone shocking day of his life when he read them with which he claims preuss what he is. Alleging about an attempt essentially g use illegal predecessor. Take him out as a political figure about bows they want the second thing i was but i haven't seen go his way to contradict piece of marles. Sworn evidence to the committee. I mean is very hard to see how he doesn't once again right. he's more on all. Come back and explain. The discrepancies between what commit to a more is silence on earth to committee. The third thing is issue of whether one of the names were complainants was disclosed to the salmond team and salmon's had happened. They were three people who testifies few bass effects that is very significant. Because one of the big audience practice has been that the reason the evidence is being redacted. Evidence is being withheld is prevent jigs ordination claimant's if the sculptor's government saw this one would be identity of complaints in that. That is a very serious matter. And so those tomorrow one. Three stand up moments from this testing phrase annex salmon said he had no doubt the nicholas had breached the ministerial code openly giving an account version of events. That did not coronate. Nick degen's how much trouble do you think. The fast minister is in from what you had today. I think with who sinc- of what's happened yesterday wasn't really what alex salmond said remember. This kind of psychodrama has been running in scotland for two or three years now. so anybody. That interested in willow ready. No every twist and turn the real dramatic moments came lengths which nikola surgeon under allies went to stop. Alex salmond giving evidence in the first place. You remember katie. That a couple of weeks ago of a spectator took the unusual step of going to the high court to seek clarity because that time scottish parliament was saying no. We're actually not even going to publish. Alex salmon's evidence and if we can't publish his evidence that he will be able to give evidence in person so this whole thing almost never happened because the scottish parliament's investigating committee saying that if we do publish his evidence if we do hear from him he's going to identify the women who complained against him now. That was simply ally. We knew that because we have a spectator actually published simon's evidence on our own website. Anybody has been able to read it for weeks. You can see. It's a dentist is no one but still clinging to that excuse. So that's why we went to the high court dory into to rule. Was there any legal impediment. We asked to stop the scottish parliament seeking his evidence hearing what he has to say. I've been scrutinizing asking him questions. This is what democracy's boost to be all about. It's not about cover ups. It's not about thinking of legalistic ways to stop being made against the first ministers. Democracy is about hearing what people have to say. Alexander might have come up with something fantastic likud be crazy conspiracy theory or he might be absolutely correct..

"But i do think that given that no vaccine is one hundred percent effective easy it completely unreasonable to expect people working with people who are particularly vulnerable to this virus to take every step to protect themselves now harder to see what justification pimlico plumbers plumbers. Saying that you have to have had a job to come and fix someone's boiler right but in situations which inevitably involved prolonged close contact. I'm not saying i'm in favor of it. But i'm not saying i'm against it. We have already done this in one area. I'm would any of us reverse that policy with any of us say you can go to medical school even if you don't wanna have a hepatitis b. Okay and casey you from the conversations you've had today how the mood is now now that people have had twenty four hours to reflect on. Boris johnson's new timetable. I know that for to give a random example. He's about to get married. It might be quite good news because we hear that in july. It's all you're gonna waiting for four hundred or something we can. I think he could have it the questions. Could you food. It would have to talk about my salary. Pam's but now i mean i think he.

The most would like the covid recovery grape steve baker walk-off over a lot faster.

Some congratulations again on the vaccine program. One npr she invite abortions into their wedding which cannot go ahead and overrule. I think because. Boris johnson has hit this data by which all restrictions could go by the summer. That is prevented a large scale. Tory rebellion fanatic. Now our views on one being vaccine passports. But the other being social distancing things like ma so what plus rue ahead of the stateful mass relaxation starts add of caveats on so you can have unlimited number of people in this venue but you have to keep telling me to supply. I think we'll start to see this. Pick up again but only wear boris johnson. I think in trouble. His party is a sense of constant restrictions. And at the moment. They're giving him the benefit of the doubt that by going slowly. You are going to get to a point of free. Democracy might define a dictionary is fascinating.

"I think you can see with every day that goes by interest is increasing in the story. Now of this journalists is a grape. I think that this in westminster and beyond. And i'm very interested in the story in terms of your average possible on the street. I do think this is something. Which is is rising up in terms of putin's and i think from scotland perspective. I think that scottish tories were initially quite and be a few months ago on this in the sense that it was not having much cut for tool as think we talked no talk for a long period of time about this idea. That the snp. We're going to be dented soon. The salmon is really difficult for nicholas and and yet when it started to actually the design might have been over hyped in terms of the impact it would have. I think that partly recent events spectator action this as well as other parts of this. If we get the testimony means that is now becoming much more live issue. And i think that just as becoming more prominent in scotland it means that there is more attention being paid at here but clearly there is a limit in the sense that allows james makes a compelling case. Where is such an important event for anyone. I think the fact the only way voters all voters cannot vote for the snp means that there is a limit on how far is going to have cut frey a. Meanwhile if you look to you. What's the union unit number ten is doing looking for its third leader. Myspace of three or four weeks. There seems to be chaos in edinburgh. Certainly the implosion in westminster. Yes but this is what happened at the end of last week where you had oliver. Lewis stepped down as head of the union unit. He'd been granted to the two weeks. And now i think there's questions as to well. They actually do get a direct replacement if all of layers to spend. Yet you could. D- dramatize the unit as one way of putting it fades off into the distance. Seen this little bit of a cursed job these days i think the union unit job and as a result you could instead have figures batanes such as henry newman the senior adviser who influenced the policy and when union policy comes to number ten. They oversee beat up a specific union unit adviser per se. I think we partly down to have union policy is going to be divided across government but also the fact that because number has become so factional recently i think there was a small of this which is perhaps is simply just not and nights people to rose right now but there is so much around personal aside. What this boils down to is that the. Snp isn't as much a party could be in. Voting starts in the matter of weeks and still the tories status tories. British stories are all odds and of new real duration when it comes to fighting for the union battle which has pretty much started. Yeah we have a situation where the scottish tories led by douglas. Ross it very much doing their own thing. Guess liaise of westminster. But i think they are ignoring. What's happening in terms of the number ten drama. But when you speak to ministers in terms of the number ten strategy on the union. I think there's deep confusion particularly after a departed and i think that if you're going to say this is a policy priority. I think that if we could up in a couple of ministers each and ask them what their exact strategy is even try to answer. It wouldn't match up which is a worrying now. James we also had Detail her way out of lockdown this morning and now a path which is a bit slower than mourn. Boris johnson lead it yesterday but not much slower for something that you is in the.

"Wrong. Nothing dishonorable in fact. There was a moral duty to pursue the evidence where it led and the scottish crown office decided to go ahead with the prosecution. So that part of it is pretty difficult to find. Any corruption near alexander might argue now but this was a case to remember the words he uses is to a case to imprison him by nicholas sturgeon and her husband. Beat him rarely. Smb chief executive but right now we are just really looking nicholas urgen version of events and she says meeting happens. This day might have happened on the other day. Is that really enough to bring her down as first minister because realistically that's all this inquiry is going to find out i think she seemed to have misled at coach parliament and then that's ultimately something which is going to be very difficult for her. But i get the sense when you're talking to scottish stories when you're talking t- various politicians in scotland and lows iran scottish parliament. They expect this to be the kid a blow to the first minister and had career however the do expect this to make life difficult for her make things uncomfortable and atis series of problems s. Npr facing now at examined. Does that suggest. He's not going to give evidence tomorrow. We just had might give evidence on thursday. There was a moving picture there. I think that public opinion. If you removed as simple as pose approval of alexander's vigor and nicholas is a figure in scotland. Nicholas has a much add better public approval. So i think if we're going to move to the houses seen by voters either. It's clearly not beneficial. The session is damaging. But i d get the sense is when you speak to those. He would like to see the snp note at kearney. Doing they see as one of several things that could damage them rather than the fact that they actually think she is seriously going to end up resigning.

"Welcome to coffeehouse. Shorts spectators daily politics. Podcast alexander salmond has pulled out of evidence session. He was due to appear in front of in the scottish parliament's committee tomorrow on the grounds that the scottish parliament has pulled and censored the evidence that he gave emits extrordinary development now doesn't look likely but his investigations against nicholas sturgeon. They're going to be investigated at all. I'm fraser nelson and joined by katie bowls and james for safe now james. Anybody who's tried to follow the alexandrian saiga with failed. It's so convoluted. But why should you care. If you don't live in scotland are you should care hugely. Because in the united kingdom you have got an extraordinary development raising questions about the separation of powers which is but the crown office which is headed by a member of the scottish government pressured. The scottish parliament to redact annex simon's evidence to remove this explosive charge that nichola sturgeon broke the ministerial code. Significance of this is our examined and his lawyers have long been concerned for unless evidence is published. If he were to speak about it. I the inquiry. He could put himself in legal jeopardy because of a complicated question of whether the evidence could be used to identify some of the complainants against him in the criminal case on which he was acquitted about his sexual behavior. There is a judicial review. Scottish government lost. There is the question of whether the first minister misled scottish parliament. And you have pressure. Being put on by the crown office on the scottish parliament to redacted documents that they had previously published and therefore make it far more difficult for alex salmond to discuss. This very serious allegation is worth remember now precipitation overseeing etc. Just the normal route is a breach of the ministerial code in. The uk system is considered a of automatic resigning offense for the first minister. Beacuse breaching the ministerial code by her predecessor is a very serious business is from and henry. Mcleish resigned as first minister of scotland over relatively smaller regularity and his expenses because it was perceived was found to broken the ministerial code. He called his a muddle fiddle. Muddle was enough to get him. Fired been nicholas sturgeon. Let's be clear here what she's accused of is getting her dates slightly wrong if she's not that doesn't use the word himself but is essentially saying the nicholas urgent and those around him attempted to use a malicious prosecution to remove alex salmond from public life in our political system. That is about as an explosive charge. As you can get can you. I mean i find it. A bit naff and apologizes token this matisse gots to always bring things to capacity to westminster for you can say cricket for the accusation is like theresa may saying that bush and his aides and allies had cooked up a criminal case against theresa may because they were finding criticisms of the government over planning reform abbots reopening a bit difficult is an incredibly serious charge from alex salmond. And i think it's an incredibly serious charge that needs to be examined properly. Katie james has cooked up a charge. There we all alex salmond says they could sure but the thing is he went to court he was found not guilty of the offenses but there is no doubt that his behavior left something to be desired here. So i imagine nicholas absolutely right that these charges being brought sure court found him guilty..

Fish farmings future, and how microbes compete for space on our face

"Now we have staff writer eric. Stock said he wrote a feature on the modernisation of fish breeding in this week's issue. Hi eric a great to be back. Sarah great to have you so fish. Farming is modernizing and on the rise. What's the big picture here. The big picture if you go back to nineteen fifty. And you compare what's happened. Over the last seventy years you can see with with wild caught fish. The overall harvests flattened off in the last couple of decades but aquaculture's continuing to rise that production of farmed seafood. Nearly half the protein that we eat from aquatic organisms is grown on farms. Most of it is freshwater and in asia most of the farm fish in the world coming from the land. These are ponds with carpenter them up. Harp common carp to loppy right trout. Catfish there are a lot of these Aquaculture species would are being grown on land. I was surprised to learn. That fish are behind the times. Humans have been keeping fish to eat or at least a look at for thousands of years. But as you point out in your story fish haven't been altered through breeding like other livestock. How things been different. The big differences that most of the seafood that we're eating it is closer to being wild than the terrestrial livestock. Do you think just because the people who did this intensive breeding the people who were interested in tracing lineages of animals and getting the best from their cows. They just weren't that interested in fish farming or in seafood. Is it just a coincidence of history that the focus of all this intensive breeding has been terrestrial animals. If you're talking about the last century or the last one hundred and fifty years worth you're talking about thousands of years right about thousands of years of thousands of years right so over ten thousand years where humans first domesticated sheep goats cows and then lived with them and over that time. Pick the ones that had the traits that they liked they gave more milk. They had more meat on the bone. That's been happening for a longer time. We've had a longer stable relationship for the most part right. There are some exceptions here for the most part a longer relationship with those animals that walk around. Then with the ones specially no from the sea and the other is that over those thousands of years. the terrestrial livestock went through population bottlenecks that reduce their genetic diversity. It's like when you bring a few parents cows to a continent but nobody's bringing around a pond full of fish right. That's a great point. It is harder to bring those with you as your trucking across the continent there is some archaeological evidence for aquaculture. There's a lot of i inference. There is evidence in australia. Aboriginal people in six thousand years ago. Where building ponds to keep eels. But who knows you know to what extent they were selecting. If you can control the life cycle that's really the key thing with domestication and being able to have it reproduce in captivity right and then you really can pick the ones that you like and selectively breed. Those for continued improvements now. Researchers are jumping way ahead skipping centuries of painstaking documentation breeding line analysis and using modern technologies to get what they want from fish. Well what do we want from fish. Eric it depends on who you are right on the one hand. If you're a fish farmer their key things that you want the first one is fish to grow well or not just fish. They'll probably say fish a lot but we're really talking about a huge range of organisms right fish. Crustaceans molluscs really hugely different organisms. But no matter what you're growing you want creatures that grow. Well they have a lot of protein that you can sell to the grocery stores new consumers. You want bigger fatter oysters. Send you want large fillets you want them coming from animals that grow quickly so maybe you can do more generations right more cycles per year. So that's the first thing you want. The second thing you want. is hardy. Animals healthy animals ones that resist disease. And this is. It's a huge issue in aquaculture breaks of disease can really hamper an operation in shrimp farms. You could lose forty percent of your entire crop. In all of those cases having disease resistant animals is a real benefit. Fast and good growers diseases in animals. Anything else that you want out of your domesticated livestock. Once you've made progress with that. Breeders will turn to traits like in what does that fillet look like was salmond consumers really like reddish pink fillets so you can read salmon to have naturally redder flesh color around her fish right rather than a longer fish war color apparently in japan trout with a bluer color and fewer spots or spots. Just in the right place on the outside of the fish that's desirable so chilean breeders of optimize their trout that they export for those qualities. What technologies are fish. Farmers livestock breeders using to achieve these goals. You need to do as a breeder is. You need to be able to pick the fish that you want to propagate so four a faster growing fish. that's not hard right. You just need a ruler. In a scale you can. And when salmon breeding got underway in the late sixties early seventies. They were getting gains in growth rate of ten fifteen percent per generation. Right at wow. And put that in the context right. If you're a poultry breeder a few percent is a really good thing. Yeah so you can measure that but it's not always simple if you want to measure the color of the flay obviously you need to Sacrifice the fish right. So you can't use that fish for a hattrick because it's It's dead so what the breeders of done is the used. Something called family based approach where they have crosses between two parents and then the offspring hundreds thousands in a tank and they can test some of those but they'd have to use siblings for the actual production of the fish that go off to the farms. How do they know which sibling. Which family members carry those desirable traits. So the technology comes into this is using genetic markers where you can look for. Little changes in the in the genome that reveal whether a favourable lille of a gene is present us. Take a little clip of the fin. If it's a fish in you can sequence that tissue for the genetic markers that are in it so that allows you to really get much more accurate selection of fish for the next generation. We talking about fish for while here. Let's move to some of these invertebrates we have you talk a little bit about oysters. Triploid oysters what is that. And what does that accomplish. Oysters in the wild. They've got like us two copies of each chromosome. You call them diploid. If you took a human and you added an extra copy of chromosome. They wouldn't survive. That moisture is our of stuffing with one voice to reader. Who know asked him. Why did you get interested. Your genetic trained as a geneticist. Why did you get interested in oysters. And he said there so tolerant of genetic abuse. Neka really manip- manipulate their genes. And they'll survive right so you can give them a whole half extra genome and they're fine or double it you can make them tetsuo -ployed and the really has a tremendous impact for improving the production of the oysters. If you make triploid waster it becomes sterile. It's healthy. it's normal. It might be hardier. More disease resistant to they. Mature faster you harvest them sooner and in some places that means you pull them out of the water. E four the disease outbreaks in the hotter warmer conditions. The next nother advantage of triplet wasters. Because they're sterile. they're not putting much energy into reproducing. Why bother so. They don't develop the same mass of sperm or eggs. That affirmative oyster does. There's more meat on them. So the real advantages to making a triploid bicester.

"Let's get Serafin because she was on the phone at the end of the show yesterday so I really WanNa she got left shaft. So I said I'd get you on the edge so sorry. Thank you Kim. So Sorry Serafim Leo LaPorte tick. Thanks for your patience. I was on hold for two weeks and weeks. I did you get any food in that time any any. I hope you fine. Thank you for being so patient. Thank you sir. Thank you I have what you'd call a simple questions I could've situations but to made their major because I have not solved them. I've been on a PC since like nineteen eighty four and a mask for who knows how long but I go back and forth between the two. I have two. Pc's that never go on the Internet because they're my work courses and in one of them. I have a design program. I make stickers cars trust for the for the guys in the power industry. Yeah and so. I- periodically need to add images to my brochures or to put them on the Internet. 'cause I have an e commerce site and then to do advertising in the magazine okay. Well when I I say in that program as a Japex and then if I drop them in a drive drop them in on like Mac Into either a brochure or the advertising or the website some of them come in beautiful and some of them come in pixelated they all had the same DPI. And then. So sometimes. What I'll do is I'll go the bad ones. I'll go into Photoshop on the PC wreath them as J peg with Photoshop and put them under some drive in sometimes they come in good and sometimes they don't so the picture can only be as good as the image that you're using and what often happens for people is that you know. A picture looks fine on the screen until you really take a look at it and then you realize oh it's really pretty low resolution. The number of dots per inch is meaningful because It's the original that you got it from and if it's low resolution you can have a lot of dots showing very little information. So that's not necessarily going to be helpful. Where the original images coming from. Well they the line drawing are of the Lakers and they're coming from a program called flexi pro so a line drawing should always assuming that it's doing it in a format a scalable format of what we call. Victor Format should always scaled any size without any problem. Converting IT TO J pigs a mistake because you're converting it to something that doesn't scale to a dot by dot representation so with every you're using a vector graphics in Your Line Drawing Program Keep it vector graphics and then converted at the resolution. You want to use it because that's going to be a problem you you it's not going to be scalable once you make a pig out of it so when it's in the drawing program. I should find wherever hidden the Presume when you're going to have to take a break because the clocks running out here but hang on I'm GonNa Talk to you off the air and And I think we can solve this one. I honestly do Sama Salmond. Our Car Guy Coming up in just a SEC to talk automotive technology stay here. So is the image that you're the two year creating the images with that's probably vector graphics. Right you can make those as big as little as you want. Because they don't know. How big the car stickers going to be you might be doing a whole rap or you might be doing something. The size of a decal doesn't matter in that program because it scales it so and the reason that represents that program represents the image not as dots at all but as. This is a line from here to here right. Or this is a circle and so they can draw at any any resolution at all it's that converting to dot for dot. That's going to lose so what you'll want to do when you're using the line drawing program and I presume when you save it out as it. Is it the line drawing program that does the J. Peg I can? Yes so that's the place to do it. Just understand that. The the vector graphics that you're creating in its native format or scalable but once you do a conversion to paying J. pig tiff any of the normal image formats. You're locking it in at that size. That makes sense. I want one. That's two inches by three inches. I said Do. The vector is save it as a two inch by three incisively and make it a J. Peg precisely. Okay good to note the I have one other question. Do you WANNA wait till you go back on. Okay gone I got this is GonNa to be on the podcast version of the show. So he's still you're you're still get on the air here. I'm a fine art painter and I was happy with my with my images so if I want to send it to a museum exhibition or publication resolution. Yeah biggest so they're so. Sometimes people talk about dots like it's so it's ten eighty by seven sixty but I think about ten eighty seven sixty on a two inch. Screen has a higher resolution dots per inch resolution than on a ten inch screen. Right so really the res- The number that the ten eighty seven sixty doesn't tell you anything dots per inch does and that's why you want to always think in terms of how big is this picture. GonNa be. Then when you save it out you can say specifically not it's better not to look at the resolution but if your program offers you dot per inch typically The screen is seventy two dots per inch a laser print out his three hundred dots per inch Museum if it's blowing it up to two billboard size is mighty in. They WanNa see what it looks what they don't want to see is dots right so you want enough dots per inch. Everybody might WANNA see mine. If you're Surive Yours Yours Sarah. They WANNA see dots everybody else. They want as if it's a it's a painting right with a continuous stroke but the understand the computer doesn't do continuous. So the only way it makes it look continues by having enough dots per inch. The eye doesn't see the DOTS apple calls that the retina display. And I it's a really. It's a marketing term. But the what the mean. You can't see the dots so if you get the dots to anywhere over two hundred per inch on any output device unless a person's got a magnifying glass. They aren't going to be able to see the dots. Three hundred. Three hundred is probably the game. You notice that when you look at a laser printer and the output of laser printer. You can't see the dots okay. So three hundred be fine. Three hundred dots printer and then I put them on right now so so. Dpi is more important than resolution in that regard.

I'm Jefferson Graham. This is talking tech. I'm at Amazon's headquarters right now. Covering the event after the event I actually cornered some Amazon executives and ask them to identify the one product. They're most excited about. We started with David Lynch. Who is the senior. Vp who runs the devices division vision and then we spoke to Jamie Salmond aquamarine connected doorbell and Nick Weaver from Euro. which is the WIFI helper in the home have a listen for me? I I echo buds or echo studio. I'm picking too. I know that's not fair. Those those for different reasons are really interesting products for me. I think Echo Studio Oh as one of the world's largest speaker manufacturers. I think it's our responsibility to kind of show the industry away. We'll see if it's the right way but we you think it is on where music could evolve in the house and so. I'm excited about that for that reason separately. I think I'm excited about Echo. Go Buds because so many customers I tell you it is the number one requested device that I get at dinner parties for pup up customers that love Alexa that like just let me have her when I'm jogging and I think I'm excited about finally being able to answer those questions in the affirmative the go-to dinner so the one. I'm most excited about an don't laugh at me but I think it is. I think one of the best ones is the echo dot with clock. I just I love the simplicity and like like what that product does. That really is my favorite product that we launched it and and I think we did launch. I really do think we lost a lot of great products. Today that customers are going to like you like the clock because you're like me and you wake up every hour on the hour in in the evenings. WanNa know what exactly I do and I. I like having a clock next to my bed. I do like the functionality of Alexa. I loved setting an alarm. I I like when you wake up and you can set a routine to tell you the weather and say what's going on and so I like the power of that next to my bed and then I I liked liked just the just some sort of Nice little led simple. Tell me what time it is. I know it's four in the morning. Why am I up. Go back to bed well. I'm a I'm an audio guy and so the things that I was most excited about where The all new echo studio it sounds phenomenal really excited to get one of those hi end audio coming from an Alexa speaker and it sounded like it was many speakers yeah. It's three D immersive audio it. It has DOBIE ATMA support. One speaker sounds amazing so it's a it's a really groundbreaking device excited to get one for myself. Alf and then the all new echo buds. You'll you'll see them later. They're incredibly small. They've got of course full native support for Alexa on the go and then it's also active noise cancellation from Bos- so you've got these incredibly small ear buds that are great for drowning out noise if you're you know outside or on a plane it's a really really great product.

It should it should in this perhaps explains why so many of us tend to fall asleep and wake up refreshed from a lovely train nap or car ride nap. I have to say I sleep up slightly the best on airplanes as long as it's flatbed of kind of. Lots of lumber flights. I get. Are you are you going to buy a fifteen million pound home? Now. Listen, just before we go. I want to have quick chess about Alex Salmond because he is all over the papers. He was Scotland's first minister he's being accused of fourteen counts, including attempted rape. Which is extremely Scotland. Is hugely shocked by this. Yes, I'll Solomon for for those who don't follow British politics was the leader of the Scottish National Party. Who led the ultimately unsuccessful Scottish independence referendum in two thousand fourteen and then step down handover to nNcholas sturgeon? Him being charged with rape is and sexual assault and various other offenses, obviously, we the it's an ongoing investigation. So we can't comment on the substance of the charges. But the the fact that someone who is so recently such a powerful figure in Scotland at a time when Scotland which is massively in favor of remaining in the EU, and where there is now agitation for a new independence referendum if Britain crashes out of the EU, so that's calling conceivably reapply to join. I think is going to throw Scottish politics for loop at a time when it's already in a very very fragile and sort of fungible state and finally just a challenge I turned anybody to investigate with Hugh Laurie has changed his job because there are all these pictures of Alex Salmond on the front pages of the newspaper. He's flanked by save rather good-looking policeman. Who is the spit of Hugh, Laurie. Well, he could be he could be doing research for a new rule many houses moonlight. Jacob carquinez.
