Choice for the first addition how defeat his differ from other votes because he feels quite a personal project very much connected to scandinavia. In a way. Can you tell us if there is any difference or how would you cooperate. The older international volts as well. We are very different from especially the wholly-owned because we are in licensing i approached her whole staying and said this is going to succeed. We need to do it differently. Because this market is different. And also i think it was an urge send crowdedness to kind of show the world. What's scandinavia is about when it comes to tashin design and values lifestyle all of that and it makes it so much easier when you do it in english everybody here in the navy countries. Learn english so early practically everybody's streak said so. It's not so strange but what happened from the first issue is that we already have a big market that is international. It's almost thirty percent from day. One of course different from innumerable because it's more local to that country to that region. But i think we are in a bit in a way. Awesome a little bit of a guinea pig in this. Because we can't try outs things. And i know conde nast and already said like if any region in the world where you can actually change faster than other places. They thought it would be here in this country navy and i i think they right. And that's been my approach. Michael list to more local produce things. I don't want to be part of this way. You actually send clothes and models and photographers all over the world and the budgets are well the top and it's not like it's not like we don't want to have big budget like why people don't even you know they don't know why it's just the way they do it.

"Of course instead something about your values and your vision and all of that but what i started thinking not about was the love of nature in the nordic doesn't matter if you live in finland marine denmark you will stay that nature's almost religion to you. It's where you find creativity. Peace of mind inspiration. We always due to the nature. Nature is very we also. Have you know the right. Which unique in the world to go around in nature and use nature if we are just respectful it so it's not like pride. It's everybody owns the nature here and that's also why i think we are so many years ahead. When it comes to sustainability that is also one of the big news that i have introduced in scandinavia is that i've said no to the mass industry that it actually is because when you produce magazines today you printed in enormously copies and then you send distributed out to know how many new stems and shops on over the reality of this. That more than sixty percent usually comes fact in returns and goes to waste. When i realized i was like. I don't want to be part of it. It just felt so wrong. So therefore i i decided to just print very limited copies. People asked me. What do you do with it. You know it's finished. I said it's finished. You can't buy it anymore. It will take a while because it has stewart trent machines and all of that to be more critical demand. That's my goal my dream but we have started to just sell. That's why maybe you don't have a copy of because you actually need to go into our three store on nine to order your copy so we actually know exactly how many copies that goes up and to whom and how we sent them. We had the first to be totally plastic free. Because that's you know if you're subscriber you send out magazine. It comes in a plastic bag. This big atomatic machines that dusty. So it's really hard to change this. But i have a lovely collaboration together rid store which is the second largest. I pump any in the world of the area in the nordics is actually so as was very interesting to work together so we innovated a new packaging system which is renewable paper packaging so every managing. That goes out if you ordered. A line comes in a paper package. But of course. The nature and sustainability is we have four pillars in the magazine. It's nature it's tick because in the nordics we have very tech savvy. We have a lot of very good interesting tech company startups that i work with and we had earlier doctors. And then we have sustainability and also diversity and inclusiveness and being buried transparency of these four things and then i started to think who can incorporate this in a person. And that's where grist came into the discussion of course then and her being swedish as well and the funniest thing in back days this because normally when you do roll cover. It's old fashioned approach. And it's always a fashion photographer. That did but i had a relationships since way back with matisse clue and his wife is alexander and matiz. He's been absa tokens nature photographer for more than twenty five years. Working for national geographic. Doing you know tom's covers. Mostly he shoots animals. of course matere. I was talking about like what's the different looking animal in the eye. And a modal. In the i like you. And it became like a very interesting conversation. And of course he is also an environmentalist. So it was the combination to get your wrist because she just only things she wanted to of course. It was a combination of us coming in with a photographer already is working so much the environment and knowing so much about and is then authority in.
The Science of Masks Is Still Uncertain
"New york magazine is on the left on occasion. It produces a non left peace new york magazine. Science of masking kids at school remains uncertain. The title is way. Way understating vic. The arguments of the article at the end of may the centers for disease control and prevention published a notable yet mostly ignored large scale. Study of cova transmission in american schools. These findings cast doubt on the impact of many of the most. Common mitigation measures measures in american schools distancing hybrid models classroom barriers hep filters and most notably requiring student. Masking were each found to not have a statistically significant benefit. I'm allowing that to sink in. This is a cbc study which needless to say made no headlines that i'm aware of in the united states but this experts say masks on children harmful or and useless to year olds have to wear masks onto airplanes. And we're proud of our society and there are people on the plane who were scared of a three year old. Not wearing a mask. I fear irrationality and i don't fear much in other words. These measures cannot be said to be effective. Many of america's peer nations around the world including the u k ireland all of scandinavia france. The netherlands switzerland italy have exempted kids with varying age. Cutoffs from wearing masks classrooms really. They must be dying. These kids must be killing teachers conspicuously. There's no evidence of more outbreaks in schools. Those countries relative to schools in the. Us does that matter. Those of you who say you follow the science and take the left wing. Positions on science are lying to yourselves.
Fox Business Reports Democrats Prefer Socialism Over Capitalism
"Because it addresses using a pole and data just how bad the fight with the left is getting. It says majority of registered Democrat voters now prefer socialism to capitalism. Unsurprisingly And that hurts me to say that the poll was taken August 7th to the 10th. Showed that 59% of registered Democratic voters who participate in the poll had a positive view of socialism. Compared to just 49% who felt that way about capitalism. So if your leftist listening right now and you're one of these who are a socialism, guys? Yeah, we love socialism First. I want to ask you a question. You ready? You're sitting in your car in your apartment. You playing some video games roasting the smores? Whatever, you know, eating a hot pocket. Whatever you left this do, you don't work, So whatever you're sitting there doing In the back of a tent and your mommy's house or something like that in the backyard, you know, begging for her to throw you one of your pepperoni pizza. Hot pockets. I ask you a simple question. I said What is? What is socialism that you that you prefer over capitalism? What is that? Now I know what you'll say. Because I've debated left this before, and they you know, pretty typically don't know anything and what they do know is wrong, but they'll typically say something like was definitely Sweden, Sweden. Sweden is a socialist country. Okay, That's not by the way, a definition. You just cited what you believe to be an example. But I'm asking you for a definition. What is socialism if you think Sweden and Scandinavia are socialists And they say it's like it's government, like doing good, like stuff like, you know, you know they're the same people like Remember Mean girls. This is the same people trying to make fetch happen like wretch in. That's how they talk. When you talk. They don't really know anything. So you say them? No, no, really, What is socialism? He defined the mechanics of how socialism works. So then I usually tell the most socialism is when the government this governing entity controls the means of production in the society, all of it. The means of producing cars, the means of producing medicines, the
Expert Weighs in on Connection Between Climate Change and Recent Heatwaves
"Nature. Climate Change found that more than a third of the total deaths due to heat waves can be attributed to climate change. What should we expect in the coming years? I mean these events Likely to be more common. We know from the climate science that climate change is increasing the frequency, the intensity and the duration of heatwaves. We also have seen over the last few years. Very extreme heat waves. In Siberia last year where the temperatures in the Arctic I believe we're over 100 degrees. There was a heatwave in Japan that the Japanese meteorological authorities said couldn't have happened without climate change. Northern Scandinavia, Sweden A couple of years ago had a heatwave was 700 excess deaths. So we're seeing these around the world. And, yes, Communities need to develop heat action plans to be prepared for much hotter future. That was Professor Christi E. By she studies climate change in public health at the University of Washington. Professor Emma. Thanks so much for taking the time. Thank you very much.
"scandinavia" Discussed on State of Fear Podcast
"Welcome to state affair passport. Join us as we explore the strange and unknown that lie beyond our borders bringing you tales of terror and intrigue from round are fascinating dangerous world. Thank you for joining us today. The topic of our story is a legendary creature from scandinavia known as the ghulam. The gulan also known as the half in sweden and the frost in germany come from scandinavian folklore and is described as having the body of a large dog. The head ears in clause of a cat a thick coat of shaggy for and a tale. Like a fucks. According to legend. It is said to often make a kill sometimes much larger than itself and proceed to gorge itself until the cell swollen is unable to eat anymore. At this point the gulan will find two trees growing closely together and squeeze itself between them forcing the freshly eaten meat through its body making the necessary room to consume the remainder of what it was unable to eat. No physical evidence to support the existence of the golan has been discovered to date and no documented sightings could be found at this time the gulan is used as a symbol for glutton as it eats more than it can. Hold it purges then it eats more. Also it's blood is said to have aphrodisiac qualities and was supposedly on occasion mixed with honey and served at weddings. This is a mystery to say the least being that there have been no sightings are reported contact so obviously such claims can be easily dismissed by some it is believed that the creature was first documented by swedish. Historian allows magnus. Here's how he described it. Great as a great dog and his ears and face are like a cat. His feet and nails are very sharp. His body is harry with long brown hair. His tail is somewhat shorter but his hair is thicker and this they make brave winter caps wherefore this creature is the most voracious for when it finds a carcass. He devours so much that his buddy filled by so much. Meat is stretched like a drum and finding a straight passage between trees. He presses between them that he may discharge his body by violence and thus being emptied he returns to the carcass and fills himself top full. The golan is thought to be. Just an over exaggerated wolverine. The two animals do share a lot of similarities in appearance and behavior. Could this be the case. You will have two side that i suppose. As i stated earlier there is no physical evidence and there are no documented sightings which leads us to think. How do we even know where the smith came from was it created to scare kids so they would eat the supper and go to bed is told or maybe shane people who are a bit overweight. Who knows some modern researchers believe that the tales of the gulan were nothing more than early accounts of the wolverine which have a reputation as a voracious glutton often killing prey much larger than itself gorging itself to lighten the carcass and then dragging the. Kill away to finish later. It is also noted that the wolverine from a distance does appear to have many of the traits described in the descriptions of the ghulam. Now i love crypt. it's their legends are very fascinating but all too often we are left having to rely on our hopes and beliefs that these creatures actually exist due to consistent lack of solid evidence other than personal counters are reported sightings. Of course these are often word of mouth. And i guess it would depend on how much you're willing to believe solely on faith or perhaps you just might simply dismiss it as rubbish i for one ami believer in many crypto zoological creatures. Some may have been embellished to create a more terrifying impactful tail. But i do strongly believe that otter strange beings animals or otherwise do exist in some form but i will also say that i look at things objectively which everyone should and while i do believe i certainly would not mind a good solid piece of evidence to justify that belief in their existence. Thank you so much for joining us. Safe travels and we will see you at our next destination..

Black Lives Matter movement nominated for Nobel Peace Prize
"I am thinking about the Black lives matter Movement being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Some guy in Norway did that, As I have reported, the Black Lives matter, Global Foundation. Was run by three women out of California. All three openly call themselves Marxist communists who support the destruction off the traditional American family. And the entire capitalist economic system now If you follow the black lives matter demonstrations last year, you know there was rapid destruction and violence and hatred of the police. Not all protesters. But a number of them And this deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. If the Nobel Committee in Scandinavia does award BLM, the Nobel Peace Prize that organization The Nobel Committee is shot forever because no matter what your politics no matter what your point of view on racial justice, you don't allow provocateurs. People who want to foster unrest. You don't give them a peace prize may be an act of his prize. A protest prize. Whatever. Not A peace prize. Now this

"More trip to europe before christmas to explore some interesting traditions. This time in denmark as kids in america may be getting ready to leave out cookies for santa on friday and don't worry after his scientifically dubious assertions about old saint nick having magical immunity to covid nineteen. Dr fauci has since clarified that. He took a trip to the north pole to vaccinate santa claus himself. Anyways wall here in the us. It's cookies for santa. in denmark. Children leave out porridge for mischievous lives as bribe to make sure they behave the elves. Not the kids. The idea of needing to keep these elms or nisa. Happy goes back to at least the middle ages when farmers explained various bad luck and the hardships of a long winter on the nisa farm. If you kept the nissan happy your livestock would survive the winter in all else would go. Well if you disrespected or upset the nida you may find horrors in the morning like your cow. Having dropped dead to stay on your nieces good side families began offering him a bowl of porridge. On christmas eve. Poor inge was a common staple at the time but the one for the nissan would be special made of rice instead of oats or barley boiled in milk and topped with butter. atlas obscure shares. One account of someone not leaving out the proper offering quote in one story a milkmaid designed to play a trick on her farms. Nissa hiding the butter beneath the porridge. Seen his offering on garnished the niece of flies into a rage and kills the families. Cow finishes his meal and realizes his mistake. He solves the problem by stealing a neighbor's cow and delivering it to his family's farm and quotes. So you really didn't want to get on their bad side. There are many artworks depicting the nisa as almost demonic looking elves throughout the fifteen and sixteen hundreds but by the century they had started taking on more of a happy christmas elf. Kind of look quoting again. A child sized bearded man and appointee red cap traditional garb for farmhands and quotes and met martin anderson curator at the national museum of denmark. Chalks this change up to industrialization and urbanization saying that quote. The nisa was away for rural farmers to explain seemingly random events like illnesses among livestock. They had these thoughts because they couldn't explain bacteria or things like that. She says as people gained a better understanding of agricultural science denisa didn't need to serve the role of scary scapegoats anymore and quotes nowadays. The nsa or even more jolly and innocence. They may still play pranks like stealing. One sock or families may nominate someone to play the role of the nsa and play small pranks on other family members throughout the month of december. But you no longer have to worry about your house's nisha killing you war your animals but people still leave the sweet porridge out for him on christmas eve although now they usually enjoy some of it themselves as well and i will say that.

Basically what it means the next person in line for the throne when the queen dies will be prince. Charles right that will then be followed. By prince william his eldest son then prince william's eldest son prince george. Okay then we have his prince william's daughter princess charlotte.

I looked it up I found out and I was fortunate enough the defender of the company Manish Shantanu who is a gerontologist occupational therapist. Was Willing to speak to me. So Mandy, thanks for taking time to talk to moving to live. Oh. Thank you so much for having me. Ben In I. Agree Sometimes, the name is a bit misleading in terms of. Away represents I know my first question I always liked to start out with with moving to live is what your elevator spiel and you get on the elevator someplace in your either carrying an urban pulling tote bag. You have an urban pulling sure people say, what do you do? Who Are you? What do you tell them? On okay, in two minutes well. Generally I'll say to them is that. Bourbon polling is based on Nordic walking which is. Security that. Is Very popular over in Scandinavia. Have the healthiest people into world. And basically, your upper body is doing something that looks like cross country skiing at your body you're just walking in urban settings so Sidewalks. Roads. Parks trails. For Friday other different ways. But that's usually my elevator pitch on the on the topic. and. I know we'll get into that more detail in the second half of the interview. Out of curiosity, just for the listeners, how does this differ from maybe somebody who's a hiker or a trail runner who uses polls on rough terrain? Oh, we're great question Whitmer gave asked that a lot. Well, basically onion I'm a big hiker myself and the different is died. It's one as the design of the poll and second round it's the technique. So when you're hiking usually you're you know you're elbows are banned in, you're using it to offload the weight off your hip Sidney used to give it more stability. Whereas this activity, your arms are straight more like cross country skiing not sure every volunteer this user familiar across cross scene, and it's about changing your walking into brisk walking or an athletic walk. You're using the pool and has got allege. That's designed. Did you press down that legislative move your arm back and you get insert you work like seventy five to ninety percent of your muscles. So it's all about getting like a high intensity cardio and including resistance training there as well. So just say different benefits, different pools and in different technique. So. It's almost like it's the exact opposite when the trail runners using the hikers are using it as you said, to offload the body or to offload the worker, decrease the work. In the case of polling, you're trying to increase the workload or make it more of a workout that is an accurate representation. Yeah. Absolutely. That's a great description however just to. Add to the confusion we. Developed in in different ways, what we did was we took the generic activity ignored walking and we looked at I'm as as an occupational therapist I I look at the research and then I was like Haney, how could we doubt this so that we can actually use this fitness activity for habilitation that case it's more like hiking. You Know Allen Allenstein posture offloading like hearing candidates since it's the best practices to use it for pre and post beneath surgery for those exact reasons. So on the one hand. You do all those use it for that reason for Rehab but on the other hand it, you wanted to use it for losing weight or you know increasing your intensity exercises. So for example. Here in Canada people with diabetes people recovering from cardiac heart surgery, a people who are beasts will action use the urban pollinger fitness technique whereas Parkinson's stroke pre abusive new surgery on you. Other neurological conditions they will actually use our activator which provides more balance instability and

"I the way of like how we see our daily life on how we feel happiness might. Change might have changing for many people in many ways. I think the longer the self-isolation and the social distancing goes. People might start rethinking. What is happiness and holiday see themselves and how other people see them as well because if you are out of the conduct with people, and you have to make an effort to phone them all faced on no skype them and you can just. Walk in a coffee with the friend or have dinner or whatever? EAT becomes. Yeah, it will interesting to see, but what would your tips be? You know for people who listen is if they are in the that self-isolation. To. Self distancing social distancing themselves from other world. Would you say what they should do to keep themselves happy? Working from home. At least I tried to communicate with my colleague walk mid at this one day of goes online. ONS when I worked at OFFI set, run them communications during coffee break odd meetings when I walked remotely I don't get. So, it's really put on to be active to make small communications. Isolated. On also I tried to get seeing them though that I can actually feel that I have not something. which makes. Me Have Bill. On the other them aside from work. I- drying to take this attrition positively of. things about we do is. Limited but. we can, also you latest time more effectively so I realized that for example, my gaze. This is a good time to focus on studying cleanish or writing look. On Likely that actually some people who are willing to help me finish online like finish conversations. So. More time is spent at home. The more chances you will you be able to find it on utilizing. Photo Yeah so my main ABC's be active to. People? Do they get ball steeply. Though that the again feel, you can use a dame more figuratively. Lastly I spoke to vulnerable from Finland and as what does happiness mean to her and the fact that Finland Isa Happy Country and be able to live there. What does it actually mean? Being happy in Finland. That is a really good question I think this is not my fault. It's somebody else's. And I absolutely adored it, so I adopted I think that happiness is not what you have, but it's what you do. It's so easy to just think that you don't have that and that and that, but if you're grateful for the things you have you end up being happy. And also I've read I've read and try to learn about this topic because it's really interesting. Some experts happiness experts say that You shouldn't being or try to be happy. That's how you get unhappy. body you should. Aim To make your life meaningful, and you should aim to be grateful, and that's how you end up being happy. I, think that's very beautifully, said on beautifully defined. What is happiness? Now. You live in the happiest country on Earth. Finland. According to the United, nations affiliated programs or third year in a row Finland has been. You know ranked us the happiest country and all the Scandinavian countries to know the country stenmark was second. Iceland Ford no way fifty and Sweden seven. Now. Why like what is the reason? Why do you think that? Scandinavian countries are all happiest. Let's say why the without his happy place to live in All definitely want to answer from the finish side or Finland side I think it's very easy to live a healthy life here. it's super, safe and super clean on, and I think in in particular as a woman. I take a safety issue for granted because you can walk here everywhere. and you never have to fear and that something. That you cannot do in many countries. The whole social support network is brilliant. but I'm not a social expert or politics experts I won't go into debt but also like the main issue for me is that you can count on other people's word? On. You can trust the people and you can trust the system also you can trust that. The News, tell you the right news. A not fake news and you can trust that the government is honest and you can trust that your colleague Dasa what she says she's going to do, and you can trust your everyone surrounding you and that's one of the key shoes for me. And finally, I think learning in Finland. We have a concept of. Lifelong learning and learning is always encouraged and I think this is a major point when comes to staying active and increasing your happiness, because you're not always in your same routines, and inside the same comfortable bubble, you're learning new stuff and that makes you more happy. And do you think that happiness has changed with the corona virus outbreak? That's going around when we are recording this episode. I do think that we are focusing on the essential.

"Look into it and just live you know for the moment. But what would what would you say? What would you give us a tube? Yeah I think like you say I. think that's a big factor in this. I can see if one day I started scrolling in looking too much on a new site. I can see that my My happiness is going down feeling more anxious nervous about everything. I think it's finding those things that work for you that makes you and forget a little bit about those things so reading Gu Gore, enjoying TV show together or baking or maybe make some a nice meal together. For me like having a dog for instances, one of the things that is getting materials because I can see he, he does know what's happening around him when he's just reading joy, so it's like getting a hug from him. Just happiness to me. Also have time to just kind of focused on things in the house may be like a clean out your wardrobe or do some diy or get a spring clean like all those things you. Can Take your mind off the situation basics. So. How do you define happiness stack? What is happiness to you piss annoy? The such be I love the. Well I would say. Both men the that you can feel. Agreed your sales on a daily basis. Something like you to come the. Still at this for me. When I eat will sleep. Will on something news see something new? Or by cell phone, smiling, laughing with other people's when I'm socializing will when they even see somebody feeding. Those elements of I think so E-. My opinion toppy be Brouhaha mentality to feel happy on other result more happy thinks come to them. Sounds like good de `bout. That's my. Way of thinking about how I think you're right. Because if you project happiness, two words to universe or people around or you, you come across a happy person. People are more drawn to you, isn't that? They think that when you house party or barbecue here in Australia it's like the person who is happy and laughing and now days to one who attracts more. People coming and they want to have a piece of that happiness. Yeah, I totally agree so you have to be ready to feel happiness, although I see you don't get anything. Related to happiness, yeah, Kano life just goes pass by. Now you live in the happiest. In a world, according to the United Nations affiliate research network. On a third stray third year in a row Finland is voted happy country! Why why is Finland to help his country to think? I'm not familiar with all of Scandinavian country spot wisdom. My three Hafia life ain't been done. I can probably talk about it for to prosper new. I I say that fee none this one of the country that have the best environment on social systems to be happy. So. This research doesn't necessarily show. That feeds the happiest be boom while it show that a faulk. Feel. Great qualities that make people feel safe fund is stunned that of leaving regardless of the easy John Jin Docile. Social status? It's likely to be happy life. So I think in Finland Barrera's obstacles to be Hubby's will while the other. That's the main reason. secondly is mock focusing on lifestyle, but one thing I realized that the movie through finger. Feeds. Don't have religiously high experimentation for life in a good way. Goes. Life to religion more symbol of bit other countries. So, it means that even daily small hobbies could create happiness, and you don't even have a strong steam wrestle. Excitement everyday. Not like those speak cities in New York. Though example. Where you get access exciting in the damage will experience on a daily basis so. Be playing fiend that don't stint Zeke for anything. Especially happiness I think that also. good ought of full fee. stevie happiness easily. I think you're right. They're like the simplicity of life that you don't have to have the newest of the new you. You don't have those cravings for extravagant things and. Even. You might have access to them, but people are happier for less. Yep sit up nicely. So I think in a way the bar is. Quite low in Finland with drugs that. Will really be able. To heartbeat enemy. And I think that probably explains why the rest of the Nordic countries are on. I think they were all in a top ten or top six on the report. Yeah because yeah. Did I actually really can stay? All have similar similarities on the society of how it's kind of constructed and how it's put in place, and how the social services in all. Not Countries work, and they're their support for the individual when they need support it, so I think that kind of explains in my opinion why they are in the heaviness, indexing the top. Now I highly agree with the. How has happiness change with your corona virus outbreak? But you think because you are in Finland Australia and what we see happening around us is just terrifying. It feel surreal, but do you think people have changed? What makes him happy? I still can't seat for the big picture if I start from focusing on my own life from the smaller picture. I realized that. Like Kali Boorda Dedi facilitations in our life. to hoppy goes boise a log from home I don't anybody. It, I feel lonely with easily so. Hey connections daily felicitations with other people account for big part of our. Lifestyle. So that's think. People said he not think after coronavirus outbreak on low subgoals basic like Daily News including eating sleeping. Old although stuff. Are Really put on for life and. Especially these days many places close, but still. We can find things. On them, even trying to utilize disability so so far of goes that two different of people like who take it's more like negotiable. Bill was deeply..

Anyway thank you so much becoming an joining me on this virtual couch and listening. About Nordic podcast. So, are you ready here? We go. Hi there I'm Susanna to Nordic Mom. I explore how to blocked minimalistic in natural way, embracing the Scandinavian way less is more approach in life. I talk to woman about their journeys, and how they live their live with the new live salt wherever they are. Happy Healthy Living Scandinavian way, this is the nordic. Wise Finland, happy face wise candidate. Countries are happy countries to live in. Let's hear what my guest England. Upstart had to say about this. It's I guess. It's a mix of many things. One big thing that I think about is that. Scandinavian countries or the nordics are very good at the work life balance. To find a good situation where you're not a working working working, you're also having time to enjoy life I. Extend to spend time with your family so. I think that's a big factor in in these countries. I, think also the fact of that Scandinavian Psych. We feel mostly content with how our countries than how everything is going smoothly, so we don't feel so scared may be or so nervous about banks so. In a way, it's almost like. Like, our situation are in. Place so that we can hook his own. Just finding our happiness because we don't have to think so much may be about other things I think you're right. They're like the society keeps you the. Under no framework for you to kind of live your life in a happy way. You are content because you don't like, you said you don't have to worry about things around you because they think taking taking Gareth and I know lots of Americans they think that. Finland and Sweden the that we are socialist countries that you know it's socialism because we are so well taken care of, but it's not. It's just that the way throughout the centuries and decades the way the political system have evolved. It is democracy and democracy elected prime ministers, parliaments, and all precedents, and all that, but it's everything works to me like when people asked about happiness like yet, but when you go in those countries, everything worse like the boss comes on time the bank on time, and you don't have to worry about things because everything works. True. Now. You are living in Milan own near Milan in Italy and you've been in lockdown. How many weeks now? So strict look down two weeks, and I guess like as south isolation situation out for a month, so it's been a long time at home. While so, what do you think about happiness? How has it changed with Corona virus outbreak for you like? Do you find that you see happiness in Tiffin? Things in life than what you perhaps before the outbreak? Don't yes or no, because I I guess. I am just naturally like a homebody I love staying at home, and I'm yeah I I find joy, simple things like again in general, but now it's much more confined, so I can't go for a long walk or enjoy nature or like I'm just on my own inside or with my fan, my. End, yea I I guess it's in a way. It's almost brought us closer because we do have a lot of time now to find little things to do together to be creative to bake to to have fun, so it's even though the situation is very scary and surreal and I wouldn't want to be in this situation. We are at least making the most of it. I'm trying to find happiness in this moldings. Yeah I mean we all living in a surreal world at the moment. I have to say when we recording his forecast. So how do you keep yourself happy you? You mentioned that you and your fiance have become more closer and you're doing baking. And you know you practice a lot of gear for those who were following. England upside the Sandinavian feeling. So what else are you? You know? What else are you doing to keep yourself happy? So, we. We have tried to do some fun activities that we might not do normally, so we found recently in new hope. We're building a tiny little house like model house. That has been quite a good way of that just getting a break from constantly scrolling twitter and reading the news and just kind of getting your mind off the situation than that. Yeah, like every evening we see maybe for thirty minutes an hour and we built his tiny house. We cost we do we yeah, we do fun stuff, so that's been a good way. Yeah like I mentioned before baking match me have been in the weekends. We create like a home cinema. We have a projector in the veterans, so we tried to switch off the routine a bit also to not make every day just the same because you can go crazy if it's always the same the same so little things like that. Yeah, little things that makes happiness. I think we all need a little bit of this little with that, but I like the model house thing like I. Lock Your things and Zach. Wow, that's amazing, because sometimes when you photo instagram of psych that looks like a real house actually. Lots of work has gone onto little digs there. It's an honor details in. It's a lot of work, but I'm also had a number people that rise to me and say I want to do the same, so I've started getting people sending me focus of their houses, so it's interesting to see also to follow other people. There are so many different ones you can make an it's. It's a way out. Like finding something out of the ordinary that you can do this time, because everyone has so much time now under hands. Yeah, you're ride. And what about what tip or tips would you give to people if they're thinking about happiness at? How can I be happy on this? Time and space that we are now. Is there anything that you think that they do in? You know if they are not in July during a model house, but they're still want to feel that contentious. I know would be. Turn off your social media.

Sound Of The River
"This time a story a story about a river a very special river. It's the river you can hear flowing in the background through a forest somewhere in New Zealand. The river you can hear is the Wanganui River. This recording was made recently by this woman. My name is heike like hope and Mima Danish audio storyteller documentary-maker Pica held a spent a lifetime making documentaries and stories in sound documentaries and stories in sound at a full of characters places events but almost always in our work there are also the sounds of nature like stories. That have this ECO. Centric quality where it's not necessarily humans that are in the middle where where there's When Nature Plays Part? I've always had since I was a kid. I've always had this feeling that nature sort of reflected itself into me I I would feel like a mountain I would feel like make I would feel like it's three and I've had since early childhood SLA very strong sensory experiences from Mater. I think sound is fluid. It spacious like nature is so there's something that's always been something about working with sound that mirrors this perception I have of the world and that mirrors may and can connect them like bay sometimes in sort of pristine moments also connect within me emotionally or as ideas. It's something that affects you when you're there. So how can you tell a story where whether it comes across where it's not just backdrop or pretty picture but it's actually a strong force a character almost in the story documentaries and stories come from very remote places very often places like the far north of Canada Greenland places all around Scandinavia and across the North Atlantic islands? But her latest project takes back to a place where she spent time growing up. I've just started working on a project. Actually it's a liar. I feel like I've been working on it for a long time of wanted to work on it and it's been on my mind. It's a project about the Wanganui River. It flows from the center of the North Island of New Zealand to the coast to the task. Mansi three hundred kilometers or so the river special to me because I grew up in New Zealand lift by this river and my family immigrated to New Zealand in the seventy s and we lived in in Wanganui which is the town that where the river flows into the sea and all trading station built by European settlers. So for me. It's it's personally special. And then I learnt that one canoeing river have gained legal status as a as a human entity which means that it has the rights and duties and liabilities of a legal person the Wanganui river now a legal person or legal entity one of the first natural places in the world to be given this sort of legal standing accepting a river as illegal person presents. Many challenges to the way we think about the world and it presents challenges to documentary-maker how can a documentary portray the river itself as a character as a person as an entity? Where do you begin? Did you know that the river is a human being to us? We've always had signed from the mountain to the say I the river as May. So how do you tell a story whether whether river is the main the center? I'm not sure how to that practically you know. How do I connect with the river and and figure out why didn't want to say
Minneapolis development to use groundwater to heat and cool buildings
"Gas A. Minneapolis Development Project will use groundwater for heating and cooling. The technology is called. Aquifer Thermal Energy and the city of Minneapolis seems to be embracing it as an alternative. To greenhouse gas emitting natural gas but how can aquifer work as an energy source in? Minnesota's frigid climate. Nina Axelson is the vice president for sustainability and outreach at Evergreen energy they are partners in the upcoming tower side innovation district. Hi Nina Hi Paul Geothermal energy one. Oh one I. How does it work? So a lot of folks are familiar with using the energy stored underground whether in our soil or in our water to heat or cool and Minnesota are aquifer systems in our hydro. Geology are really special and lend themselves well to this. Type of geothermal is counting on the energy stored in the water in the Aquifer to help heat and cooler buildings. What's the water temperature in the aquifer that this project will be tapping for the city of Minneapolis? I think we'd be looking at about a forty to fifty degree temperature as a starting place and then as the technology goes into US. You're actually removing heat from buildings. Between let's say May and October and storing it into a part of the Aquifer that allows for a reserve of heat in that Aquifer so that in the winter that part of the Aquifer that you're extracting from the heat is going to have higher temperatures more capacity and is that able then to generate enough heat or cooling for the buildings. It wouldn't be able to do it alone so this is under the trend that folks here about of beneficial electrification. Which means you're GONNA pair electricity in this case heat pumps with that geothermal capacity in the aquifer to either extract heat from the building during cooling season or to increase the heat enough to be used for heating the spaces in the building or for a hot water uses so this project in Minneapolis. How many buildings are planned to be heated and cooled with this project in the tower side innovation district which is part of the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis and also the saint. Anthony Park neighborhood of Saint. Paul there is been a lot of development The Green Line surly and the University of Minnesota and the public private investment into that area. So right now out of the gate for this coming year. There are four buildings that are interested in connecting to the first phase of the system but the capacity of the system is fairly limitless so once it's infrastructure is in place all new development in that area would have the potential to connect how new Issaquah for thermal energy and as Minnesota and early adopter in the US. So it's actually been around for at least over twenty years. Most of the applications are in northern Europe Netherlands Scandinavia where? There's over a thousand sites there are not A lot of these in the US so this is absolutely a place for Minnesota to lead that combination of are forward thinking policy on clean energy. The city of Minneapolis has made huge commitments to decarbonised the city and are looking at ways to get away from natural gas as their biggest carbon contributor so this technology is going to be A little bit newer for the country and a little bit newer for Minnesota. But the replica. Ability is really high so once we get the tower side project up and running there are actually three other projects being studied in the state of Minnesota because that Geo
"Balls & Strikes"
"Hello hairless. I have a question for you. Yes Erin have you ever solved a mystery? I want her to in my time. Like a kid mystery or like a like a murder she wrote mystery. I mean I'm talking like clue in the crumbling wall. Nancy drew mystery well. This might be a good. Nancy drew mystery free to solve okay. I'm GonNa read you. Some results from primaries from specific demographic in two thousand sixteen and Twenty twenty and I want you to help me solve why there was a difference. okay okay. So the demographic is white men in Michigan now in two thousand sixteen white men voted for Sanders over Clinton sixty two percent to thirty seven percent. That's Hillary Clinton in two thousand twenty white men in Michigan voted for Sanders over Biden. Forty nine to forty six percent. So that's a pretty big swing right. It's a pretty big swing. Okay another demographic Whiteman Missouri in Two Thousand Sixteen Sanders was The victor over Clinton in that demographic sixty one percent to thirty eight percent in twenty twenty Biden actually beat sanders forty nine to forty five percent. Can you help me solve the mystery of why that happened? Erin I'M GONNA go with one of my take on one of my favorite old. Nancy drew books. Okay the secret in the old vagina. I don't think I ever. It was like a limited edition. One I don't think I ever read the PG thirteen yeah. I mean it appears. Just that's one stat and I don't. I hate when people totally Cherry picking so. I admit that I'm doing something that I sometimes eight when other people do it but I think it's really telling because it confirms a lot of things that I feared on two levels one that people would not vote for a woman for president just because she was a woman even if they were moderates and to my vision of the progressive movement that Bernie had built which was somewhat bolstered by his success in the Mid West. Like in in Michigan in Wisconsin and Minnesota Was actually me attributing sexism to the progressive movement false? I mean though. Let's let's add like a smidge just a spring call a sprinkle of I don't even know what it would be a sprinkle of but a sprinkle of like at least the one thing we have to remember is lake the threat of Lake the threat of Donald Trump back then seem so preposterous that maybe people really were. I mean I don't know I mean like maybe now it's just like fuck. Donald trump is so terrible were surrounded by cooties That could be very bad for us and people are just lake. You know what I don't know I mean I think you're right. I'm just trying to find reasons for sort of to not be true Because it's a real fucking bummer. I mean it just. It looks to me like given the choice. Those demographics as hall will choose a man over a woman and then also given a choice. Those people the same people will choose a white man who is not Jewish over a Jewish man or a real progressive or a socialist and it just even though like the issue is that he's supporting aren't really social so no they're they're normal Europe stuff like he's doing like Scandinavia Shad. He did his call. It rebrand himself instead of a democratic socialist. Call him a every other civilized country in the world est yes I mean low. Maternal mortality rates. Yeah I mean listen. What are we gonNA do about the white men? What are we gonNA do about them are any of them? Okay I some men are okay. I think some minerals are okay. Let's put that on his shirt. I'd wear it I would wear to know. I think that it's I don't want to lump people together completely. I mean obviously we're a country made up of individuals but big groups of those individuals that fall into the same categories seem to be haven away that that's a I mean. Is it fair for us to say not really coming out of the closet so to speak but we are fundamentally Democratic Socialists? I mean I wouldn't go that far but I I also like hate. I don't like labeling myself I sat at A. is that at all the lunch tables in high school. You know I was in every click. There's forty kids in my class. There's one click but it was. I think that my the issues that I support a line in in almost all cases with issues that people on the very progressive end the Democratic Party support. I will say that But here's the thing Elissa. Do you think that we're all talking about electability and all these people worried about? You know WHO's electable? Who's not who's not. Do you think they were just kind of sub tweeting? The fact that they knew that white men wouldn't support somebody like Elizabeth Warren. I think there's a little bit of that. There's a little bit of that. How are you doing with her dropping out? I was very sad. Like really truly sad. I mean the thing is it's like because I've been on so many campaigns and because I think I have a A string of what's called hyper empathy. Which is like I feel other people's paying too much which like isn't a compliment. It's actually may be some form of nurses really nervous during the national anthem at sporting events. Because you're worried they're going to mess up sometimes. Yeah I like. I'm not like worried I'm like I'm like hoping for like you can do it. You've got this you've got but you know so I of course feel bad in. It's like you know it's also a symptom of who you follow online. You know I'm like a very big supporter and enjoyed following. The Warren organizers out in Iowa New Hampshire because he was so fucking plucky and an energetic in fucking positive and into their shit that it made me sort of believe in her I think even more But no it's like looks for me like if I were to lay all my policies out in what I believe in what I hope for. Which is that you know. We have a government that wants to see. All citizens thrive have the tools to thrive at least You know I definitely fall. In the Bernie E. W. Bucket. But like I think she just had like you can understand how taking all the drama about two thousand sixteen how people could feel somewhat polarized towards Bernie right. There was really like no reason for that I mean for Fuck Sake W even endorsed Hillary bag man so I really. I thought that she was the more perfect messenger And so when people were like actually you have plans and you're doing a good job so we're not here for it Which is really ex-. She didn't do anything. Yeah it's I mean. I think the people like she didn't she didn't do anything to precipitate her. There wasn't like a moment or a gaffe or huge failing that sort of precipitated. Her decline Yeah it was just that sort of that sort of thing where it's like we'll never really know. The full unquantifiable extent that sexism played in the failure of the campaign of Elizabeth Warren. Not Failure but the The end of the campaign of before and we'll never know and we'll never fully know like weather people's decision to support Bernie over Hillary in two thousand sixteen and then Biden over burning twenty twenty. Had more do with sexism than it did to do with Fear of change and just wanting to get back to normal
An Interview with South African Golfer Erik van Rooyen
"Want you to tell me absolutely everything. You can't about golf club that CHAPULTEPEC because I love watching this golf course I promise. There's not one detail I went to get by about playing it. Used COMING OFF A T. Three finish I just want you to kind of walk us through some of the considerations that go into play in that course because they talk about the altitude of course on the broadcast. It's not a direct translation of like. Oh now my eight iron goes this far because of all the different heights and stuff so right. What kind of adjustments do you make before this tournament? It's interesting because usually so I grew up. Bob Played logoff in Johannesburg South Africa and the difference is about ten percents so when a plan Janice Burke I play straight meters and it works great. Is that your stock yardage? Won't you play here play yards so say my nine goes one hundred and fifty eight hundred fifty five meters in Johannesburg. It goes one hundred fifty five yards here interesting so it's pretty close. But then we get to Japan Deepak. And it's like okay bowls going even further than Giannis books on the Tuesday. We hit every club in the bag. Just write it down straight. How is it going and track men track man and that's it? He had all the numbers in each Irish book. And I was like okay. How far is it nine? Ongo again or the eight on well about one hundred and eighty seven. Here's a. But then if you are if you're hitting a ninety five percent nine iron. Is it a direct? Does that really change how much it's going to fly compared to a regular golf course like? What are those kind of adjust? I try to not over. Think it too in the fate happened on even back on Sunday. A sixteen I was in between it was either a full wedge but the braves is a little into us. I think it was a hundred and fifty one of the pen and sixteen in a massive slow behind it. You can use a slip if you want and so we decided on taking a little nine and I was like okay but I've got a little bit of this. How am I doing that again? So it okay. But I think if you've gone over think it is going to get quite complicated yet but it's interesting. I don't feel like we see a golf course on tour where we see more guys get more mystified on the distance. The balls go right. I mean we're watching your shot into seven on Sunday. I think it was Sunday right. Excellent we watched guys go long on that day we tell people hitting the tree and everything like that but it just seems like it's a golf course that makes you guys at. Maybe not you finished tied for third. Maybe not may be the guy to ask about this but makes people uncomfortable. A little bit does does especially. If you're not in use it you know and it's funny I think when you get to sort of the mid irons seven six eight nine. It almost takes a little bit more because at ball gets up a little bit and we spoke about We do WanNa hit the high one just account for that little bit extra orage. Because it's GonNa go that extra bit further. You just had to get comfortable with it. We see every almost every year this tournament. Guys that hit it really far succeed. And if you adjust for altitude the courses equivalent of like sixty four hundred yards doesn't play. That long doesn't play that long. But why why would long drivers succeed there? I don't know it's a good question. I just think it's a golf 'cause again at its it's similar to courses in. Johannesburg and I grew up on us. I was very even lossiemouth system applied comfortable then. I think it's a golf course. It looks really tight but take whole four for example. Huge dog laughed. If you're going to hit drave got left because it's fairly simple punch out to the green and every holes Kinda got aside like that You know eight for example you have to miss it right dog right up the hill. If you left screwed you gotTa Punch out so you know which sites here driver wherever you want to. You're going to have a chance at least punch out to the green or get it around the green somewhere seeking up and down for par. But if you're going to play conservatively and you then mess here in trouble so I think part of the reason why we love watching so much is it feels a lot like the experiment of if if the the best players in the world are GONNA play. What of course that kind of looks like our local Munich overgrown yeah and just kind of weird bunkers around the green but guys seem to love playing and obviously you've had success or whatever. What is it about that makes it so fun to play? I think it's GonNa mix of everything you've got the short hauls you've got one which is really exciting. You know Gaza him to on on the green three woods and yet dot abounds right there to the left if you miss it too exciting long-hauls like eight really good par threes seven. It's going to be one of the baseball threes we play. Oh yeah I mean after you? Great show say tree. You wouldn't have been settled. I hit the tree. Freakin covers like off of the It's a tricky one. It's got a lot of everything it gives you know Sunday. There's a lot of pens. We can use some slopes and get a close with a whole lot of exciting stuff. What's IT I mean? So Co again. We're talking about of course the you're playing plays very differently than the rest of the courses you've been in pressure situations before and but now you're playing golf course that has this weird altitude factor In a high pressure situation Sunday did that feel any different than the other high pressure situations. You've been in on Sundays now. Pretty similar of you know if I think back in Sweden last year I was more nervous on Sunday in Europe and then I was This this this last week on Saturday I was actually the drain. Hundred was all over the place and then Sunday was quite calm. Funny Enough I shot four under this adds. There's all one hundred Sunday so I think I did. Okay and do you do anything differently? At altitude you set out when you start out the week. Are You hydrating better? I believe you've had. He got hit with food poisoning. The Eagles screwed bring that on himself. Are you what do you do with food wise? Like how do you make sure you don't get hit with what hits a lot of people in Mexico You know we went to a nice restaurant in the hotel tippin. Yawkey good Japanese food. He says it was shrimp. That we all eat the shrimp. I think he went back and add something different afterwards but yeah he was out. Thursday he was went back to the Italian sleep the whole day so actually at my trainer on the bag and heated. Okay Club the club me. Bad Club on AIDS or sixteen holes. He gave you a bad club. Is it three would drive? And he's like Nana hit. The driver and I hit it laughed. I wasn't supposed to go gave him the guy but we did okay in the end. It's all good well. This is perfect timing because we tease you before. We going to do our Calloway ad for you. We're GONNA make you add Lib it but the one thing I was adjusted to ask about was the maverick three would you? Yeah what's your feedback on that? I loved it the minute I got up behind. A bowl think it sits really good. It's kind of like a classic three would for me and I'm kind of an old school guy like I don't have any persimmon clubs but I'd love to have some one day. I love a good Blade Iron. So that looks like just a classic looking through it. I like it. One of our guys is claiming that the jaws wedges mart should be illegal. They should be illegal because the grooves are so good on them and they're literally wanted me to ask you about whether what you think of the grooves on the switches. I spoke to You. Think he should have been disqualified for using illegal. I don't think so spokes Rodrick Cleveland about and he's not working for callaway at the Genesis obviously got so much knowledge and they've actually got little miniature groups in between the actual cruise. You know I didn't know that you do get a lot of spin on them. It was context as that. That was the frightening part for me. Was sometimes I would get crazy. Good Spin but what are you? That concludes the AD portion of this much of a tinker with equipment. I mean how often will you do you consider? Where do you fall in the spectrum? I guess when I probably prefer not to change obviously I think like any golf perfect. We all love getting. You couldn't love seeing the latest stuff but if something works for me I'm GONNA I'm GonNa keep it in the bag. Don't really like to change unless I see significant improvement. Yeah what. What is the feedback on the joggers? Somehow I knew this was go. Of course I can't believe I made this is Ed's is really all over the ballpark to be honest people. It's so polarized what people get so worked up about it. I'm very okay. It doesn't bother me. People either love it or absolutely hates that have gone some meshes instagram. So on lady in Lee Massachusetts says surely got enough money to go buy some property tie for the conference and then I get guys at say absolutely love it wake and I get it. So it's no middle ground extra comfortable like what is really cockney appeal of the convenient at the same time you know. I think I think they look good. Yes it's different and people probably done like that too much but what in Golf? No Way people love. The sport is so good at the time so I think I don't know I don't mind the fact that it's a little extending are just a little bit but then again I'm not a huge fan of those loudmouthed pants. That are all these different kinds of colors. Were those the two options you were. But I think I think it's. It's it's a little different it at the same time. So neat and clean well. I honestly do think it's underrated. Part of the highest levels of pro golf. That you have to wear pants eighty-five in hot is new. And it's truly not comfortable to play golf in that paints have come to. I know that sounds stupid to save. It could even looking at some of the. We're with Brad Faxon. They're looking at some of the old cotton shirts. Right Hands Right. Yeah the idea of wearing pants and eighty five degree heat. I know that there's a lot that comes with a minor thing to deal with a right but it is like when you're playing poorly in your pants and your hot Yeah new European they. They made a rule now. If it gets above a certain temperature they allow you to wish awards but I mean just make it across the board. I mean why not yes. I'm not quite sure I can only go back to something you said earlier and not feeling super nervous on Sunday. A couple of things one. I'm curious how how how to how it different from Scandinavia like you're talking about and then three like there's a lot on the line for you personally stars like where you're GonNa be playing how much you can walk up all that kind of stuff. It's a lot of questions I think about all those things. I just any other little four foot writer. That you've got going is going into the week or going into Sunday. What what are those things that are on on your mind? Music like special temporary membership and that kind of for how I it's it's in the back you mind. I'M GONNA TRY THAT. I'm trying to get my PJ to card But I mean. I've been doing this for quite a while. Now. And if that's going to be at the forefront of your mind going on Sunday you're definitely not going to be ready to go win major tournaments. You've got kind of put it in the Freezer. You know until you're done so it's not easy. Obviously wing then golf tournament was forefront of my mind throughout the whole day but if God just go do your job as well as he can so what. Walk us through kind of that that we were talking about trying to get your car right. So let's catch people up that people that are not as familiar with your career to this point and I want to go

Scientists discover DNA of woman on 5,700-year-old "chewing gum"
"Juicy fruit it aimed but there was gum in olden times in fact about six thousand years ago a young woman in what is now southern Denmark tossed a lump of chewing gum made from birch tar into a shallow lagoon fast forward to the present some uh-huh researchers who found the gum during an excavation have used it to reassemble the woman's entire genetic code. Hana Schroeder is a molecular anthropologist and associate to professor at the University of Copenhagen he's one of the researchers who studied the ancient gum. What does this? DNA actually tell you. What did this young woman looked like? We found out that the individual who chooses piece of Birch pitch was female that this person lived about five thousand seven hundred years ago in Denmark. Southern Denmark had this striking combination Asian of dark skin and dark hair and blue eyes was fairly common in stones Europe. At that time we found that she was more closely related genetically to what we call Western hand together as from Continental Europe then too and together as who live just a few hundred kilometers further to the north and central Scandinavian Sweden who have another type Evatt mixture and. She didn't have that so that tells us something about how southern Scandinavia was first settled by humans. So yeah you can get a lot from a single genome. Well let's get back to this gum part of the story. What is Birch Tar right? So Birch pitch or Birch Tar as you say it's a black Brown substance that some produced by heating up Birchbark and then you obtain this residents kind of substance and that solidifies on cooling but then you know it can be made available again by chewing it and we know why the fact that often these pieces of Birch pitcher found with tooth and prints that were indeed chewed and then they would have been used for having stone tools for instance. So you know if you have an Arrow shaft shaft for instance wouldn't want and you WanNa put an arrowhead made of stone on that Arrow than you would use this substance in order to have the stone arrowhead onto the Arrow shaft in the same with the other types of tools and implements. Yeah it was kind of like a real purpose glue. If you want your a kind of an adhesive I mean what did this wad of gum look like when you found it and had did you figure out it was something akin to modern chewing gum. They're really inconspicuous. So they really small lumps maybe a centimeter and a half in size and often they're found with tooth tooth imprint. But this one didn't have any to imprint has all the other hallmarks of these falls and things that you can see and so Then we just thought OK. Well maybe maybe there's a in there and we tried and yet to hold. We've got a complete ancient human genome out of it which was Quite astonishing and it wasn't stuck on the bottom of some ancient shoe wasn't was it wasn't no no is just found in that site. The fact that you are extracting valuable information from six thousand year old piece of Gum does it also opened up the possibility hillary that there are other things. You haven't thought of yet that might contain ancient DNA. Yeah absolutely. I mean you know actually while earlier this year we published a paper. We got ancient. DNA from not quite that old only two three hundred years old from pipe stem in Maryland. We tell a lot about that individual's ancestry as on just from that DNA. But yeah I mean there are probably other types of objects that we might be able to get human. DNA From and possibly even you know microbial DNA as in this case but having said that you know these objects are quite special. So due to the fact that they weren't shoot and this was kind of part of the toolmaking process so that means that we have a chance of recovering ring this human DNA and and also the microbial DNA which might not be the case with other types of objects. Hana Schroeder is a molecular anthropologist at the University of Copenhagen. Thanks very much. Which thank you pleasure?
Biomimicry - Nature Shows Us the Way
"We do to our world we're GONNA and a half to live in it and it's important to make the very best of it. There are lessons we can learn from nature. I recently had a presentation by Richard. James mccown Hound who is the founder and managing director of Bio Mimicry. UK In the conference brochure. It said Richard is a real estate consultant and designer having worked across Europe on projects from billion dollar asset transfers to new developments his passion for all things bio mimetic and problem solving started wanted in his youth and it has never stopped since then this has led to unexpected clients and opportunities for the BBC luxury hotels and even running a workshop in a nudist colony in the Balkans. You never told us about that and the presentation but I was able to catch out with him later and we discussed a whole range the things I want to give our bio mimicry by a mimetic spy openings by affiliate all these words which became cross presentation last week but some have also caught my attention because you were doing a presentation in the context of sustainability is you set in your introductory notes. Most organizations have now adopted the use of sustainability as the best of the worst. Yeah Yeah because I think a lot of it has come to stunning St L.. Ability really is the kind of adopted thinking precip Armenta agenda ignoring five for the QB still in slavery densify chip or even into the workers and five understudying the not taking a whole by looking all the sustainable development goals angles or even simplified version of looking at the environment so the economic and social aspects. And that's the big thing. People think is ensure soot. Everything's connected we have agreed supply-chain its strength is the weakest link. Yeah so tell me a bit more about buying mimicry. I've I've looked at the website and I realize that there's an awful lot more than you had time to tell us about last week and the by it is an international movement. Is that right. Yes really comes to forefront night because we're understanding biology more. We've got confusing power over to analyze it really into even dented quantum level and giving as an undergraduate or understanding of how things are working so then that therefore saliva scientists to write more research into than there's alive and then be transferred into your Zaydan Engineering and materials science. You're seeing it slowly but surely coming through there's a lot more people actually came to the processes well because for designers they need to sell the process to continually develop new ideas and sexists coming with the one. Hit wonder right now. Is this another name for nanotechnology or as part of it. Well that's part of it but there's so much more newly systems uh-huh processing for computers new materials Nano scale and then to process in chemical engineering all the way author and then all the way through the building work in architectural sense right. So if I do something correctly you're looking at how nature accomplishes structures structures and other things and looking to see effectively replicated harnessed for what we want to create hibernates yourselves problems Overcome who is overcoming that. Not just one species found a way to do that but multiple than those overseas a very strong success strategy there and if you look at our designing problems that we have we solved it once you find one way of solving a problem. Multiple people do that as well. You look at mobile phones and smartphones. Everybody's jumped the symbolic Mike. And but if you think of it that multiple publishers and hundreds of thousands of species of sea salt streamlining onto the water or flight. insys save example. Then you look at the ones of salt in the way that can be most easily replicated for your To Saint Challenge Right. Yes you mentioned mentioned tights as a natural three D. Printer and three D. Printing of course is becoming more and more common and the range of materials that we we can use in three broadening. The thing about that sort of technique is that we find this material previously used to be block of metal on the out of it. Now we just get the material we need and we deposited so those sorts of things that you would take from. We'll definitely because he can and start learning from the not. Just hopefully construct for building technologies passive ventilation but yet into three D. printing as well because effectively. Millions of termites are like three D.. Printers very little information. But they're building an outing best together and taking bits where they don't need it so it's affected program ground. There was even some crazy research coming out. It's where they're actually look incorporating three D. printing on termites together see how they work not see the usefulness of at the moment but it's understanding this kind of clobbered ation between nature and technology. They might show a wave. How the work? Because actually create these structures that flew to move right and with a key ingredient being the light especially numidian turbines late eighty percent humidity controlled to that humidity level. Certain from this area though are highs in the nest sorry that stopped sped up other ones. Now I've seen from Woodstock you work with a wide range of organizations so you've been and and building instruction what other areas have you applied to bio two one area and the exploring with university partners.

But something which people aren't talking quite as much almost equally important is adept action in other words dealing with the problems switch you already built into the cloud system you see by mimicry.

I'm amusing materials and a more resilient monir so instead of paying multi materials if you look right into review our and look at multiple tiers of single the functions imagine creating buildings of one material but does different things depending on the thickness.

And it's a really good sense of a creative community that doesn't really exist elsewhere. In Edinburgh on I think that there is a level All of collaborative economy in customs. Wharf where you've got lots of different studios from lots of different disciplines which we can tap into which is really important for us. We've got photographers before graphic designers. There's jewelry makers architects so it makes for a really interesting dates day experience and you get pulled into lots of different projects acts that can enrich the whole the whole vibe so from a food. Point of view was really pioneering particularly within the high level Mitchell and star level with them. Food Leaf has always had sort of. It'd be more Mitchell and stars in any square mile in the country than it has been previously ICU with Castanon Jr and and to get the inside Info on leads top food and drink hot spots. And we're better place to start with breakfast. I think for for me it it's an everyday Place to go but definitely Bros bagels. I think on lethal walk. They they've been around nine maybe about a year. They've saw set themselves up at the sleepwalk which is really been a pretty bold move because it's been quite a kind of color full area going in there one of the first progressive food retailers really going. Mr They've always got a selection of probably maybe about ten different types of beagles. The E can pick from with all their different fillings. And it just delivers every time. Yeah you know. If you've AH ten minutes to get Beagle have not about better. Yeah Okay and then I wanNA smoke lunch. Where you'RE GONNA IF WE'RE GONNA quickly to nip how we probably we probably and Commons? They have an amazing onsite bakery. So it's always smells great and the sourdough bread is perfect and you can pick up. Take your breakfast I the next day. They do really good who pastries and sandwiches and soups. But if we're taking clients I there's some place called the shore which is an old school leaf beef establishment. It's slightly art deco inside. It's a really beautiful bar and kind of smooth mirrors and then you can have a really nice. Does beautiful fish sughrue fish restaurants along along. The waterfront starts with fishers. And then there's the shore and ship and kings wore when they're they're all really really great fish restaurants fishing japes leaf has got one of the best fish and chip restaurants in probably Scotland. It's called the new haven fish market on generally at key there for an hour in the summer chips and then coming into dinnertime. Where would you go for more laid back than a little favor of ours? The shafts are young. There's a love entrepreneurial. Young shafts are delivering amazing modern Scottish cuisine and I think they do a lot foraging. They've got low bar and quite often. When you're walkin there you can see what Lebron foraging origin? Four place on the bar. It's a really nice intimate experience. Bara is another one. That's literally just over. The water are really dynamic. Husband and wife you who they just you know when you can tell them their heart and soul into it and it's nice to go somewhere has set many but that it doesn't feel stuffy. There's new white tablecloths but there's really nice are on the walls there's good music play is a good atmosphere and the feed is really exciting. And it's actually very good value for money shifts would come from the Martin wishaw Autom- kitchen the training of these places. All they've been you know the Venus Scandinavia and working with or come back to you know. Add Marin started up their own restaurants in in small affordable places in Iran leaf. And I suppose that's the great thing about leaf it's been you know affordable for people to come in and and whether it's startups in in restaurants or in menswear or whatever is given a home in an incubator to showcase the best of en route can do do and then once you've lied to stomachs going get some drinks. Let's start off maybe with just sort of an old fashioned goodall pint buys your a favorite baiser Lee is really good for old fashioned boozers. And it's almost like the fish restaurants that this run along the waterfront nobles is probably one of the most famous ones. It's probably got some real stories to tell the history of the years you know particularly when the sailors were coming in here to darker think There's been in a few few stories told in some of these boozers. Sophie's another great boozer rose. Leaf is a is kind of almost I suppose our our local. Um I'm who also do great great from pub food the dreadnought is also quite like going to the treading on when we moved up here. I find it difficult to find a proper purpose. That wasn't just an old man's Poppin dreadnought really laid back by an which we really like clearly has a low competition your favorite boozers. If you want a glass of wine where you're GONNA go. I really liked the shore. Just feels I think. Because it's quite art deco in there and it's it's very atmospheric. It just feels really relaxed taxed. That's probably for me my favorite for glass of wine. You know some of the good restaurants like the Chop House of Great Barr beside them which is maybe a little bit more like a wine bar or kitchen kitchen restaurant and bar there as well? It's worth mentioning that you don't fancy the key see for a Bagel or dressing up for Mitcham Star. Dinner lethal also has a pretty spectacular food market called the pit and was never really had a kind of food market is such so started in effectively car park in with a garage next door to a and a couple of guys who had trucks maybe had restaurants and tyrone came down and just started up doing great food at really good prices and and then live music then started up by people guitars or saying kind of spawned into whole whole kind of music program and you know many better places for people to go in on a on a Saturday in the pit and the monarchial Cairn Banerjee and what better way to play now than with the track by Scottish music legends the proclaim.

I think I'd take it if I thought there was something wrong go, maybe to the FBI, if I thought there was something wrong. Here's the thing with Trump. You're going to get whatever he feels on the inside. He going to give it to you on the outside. Other politicians would say, no, that's wrong. And they've been doing it all day. It's wrong. It's bad. It's evil. I never do that. Just about everybody who have an opportunity to get information about their opponents. Now, they may call the FBI but you've been dammed share. They're gonna take a look at see what's in there they're going to take a listen. They are doesn't make it right. Not committing a crime. But that's the reality of politics. It's ugly. Trump tells you the truth, even if you don't want to hear it, but I somebody who's trying to back away who's trying to get as far away from the Russia scandal as possible. This is not a good look. This is absolutely not a good. Look. I just shook my head and said, are you kidding me? Really? Then he doubled down today saying I said it, and by the way, I talked to foreign countries and leaders all the time. Anyway, it is what it is. He is who he is. There is nobody different. Nobody like him. He is completely different than anything we've ever seen in politics. He really is for for, for better at times, and for worse this right here, I thought was a swinging amiss. I really did if people saying, well, you know, George Stephanopoulos really goaded him into stuff. No, he didn't. You don't have to answer every question just because you can't doesn't mean you should. Just because you can doesn't mean you should the thing that I was surprised about and has talked about it is access with the president surreal to tell you the truth. I mean I I've interviewed a lot of presidents. I've worked in the White House. I can't believe that we got the kind of access we got over two days interviews inside the presidential limo on Air Force One in the Oval Office in the residents outside the grounds of the White House as well. The president was extraordinarily generous with his time. Yeah you us I mean, he got like on fettered access. Like you couldn't believe like, hey, let's have fun. Let's hang out. Two days, hanging out talking about all kinds of stuff. One thing about Trump is he's going to give you access for all of the all the things he hides and all this other stuff. He'll talk to anybody immediate doesn't matter. It's crazy. It is. But this right here when you want to get that Asterix removed from your last election. And you hope you win the next election, you're praying that the economy stays good. You think you've got the path to victory because you look over, and you see twenty four people that you feel don't have a chance against you. You're worried about your poll numbers, but you're saying to yourself, self got this, and I want to get away from that I want to be a legitimate president and everybody's eyes and I'm not right now. And then you say something like this, like, yeah. Sure, I'd take foreign. That doesn't help it doesn't don't make a good look. Look the left out there saying, I can't believe you said that. Yeah, I can't believe you said it either politicians because we're so used to politicians saying, whatever they want you to hear that is politically expedient to get the point across, but isn't going to hurt them. But don't tell me that Hillary Clinton if she had the chance to change places with Trump and could have got something done that could have gotten some information from some foreign land that could have hurt Trump tremendously like she tried. That she wouldn't take it and run with it. I said it earlier day when I was on Jim Sharpe, she would eat her own literally. If she had a chance to be president and I don't think Trump thinks he didn't anything wrong. I think he thinks we're just is what it is this feel. I take the information maybe I call the FBI, maybe I wouldn't. And you know, but I think anybody would you look at it whether or not you use it to different story. But I think most politicians given the opportunity would jump at some that they thought would hurt their opponent, three two three five three eight twenty four twenty three at Chadbensonshow, Twitter, tweet at us, she's leaving. We've been through a lot together she's tough. But she's good. You know, you also have toughened bad, right? She's tough. And she's good. She's great and she's going to be leaving the service of her country. Yep. She's leaving the service that is Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She's going to be out of here. She's leaving three and a half years. She's been there. Now, remember originally? With spicy. Right. We've had a lot of people just run through it. She's been with him people like, well he's not at present. No. She was with him before he became president all the way through. She's going back to our Kansas, the opportunity for her to do something. She gives you the stat answer that you give everybody which is what? Family, because that's what everybody says, but, you know, I don't think she's going to be like a lot of other she may have a book in her, but it's not going to be negative, like a lot of other people, I wonder if she's going to do the top show circuit. And what's next may she run for, for office possibility is there, but she is out of there, and this is Trump's biggest supporter, and remember, these jobs, whether you like her, or the president, whoever the president is, they all have sell-by dates. It's exhausting. Now take what she does anyways, wrap it up with social media tenfold comparatively to what it's been in the past. Then put Trump there, and multiply that by a million, and you have how tough that job is because by the time you finish a sentence. Guess what? He's contradicted you exhausting. Indeed, but she seemed to enjoy it. It's one of the greatest jobs, I could ever have. I've loved every minute even the hard minutes. I've loved it. I loved the president. I love the team that I've had the opportunity to work for. So we'll see who's next. I don't know who's next. I know something me. I do know that what I was trying to think who's next who's next up.

They were the worst team in the NHL, and they went from worst to first and hoisted the Cup last night, there New Year's resolution had to be to become the best team in the NHL, right? Something something. And so what that means, though, is you never know. And I was talking to Lukla Lipinski today, and I said, hey, Luke. This time next year. You get a hot goalie you get a team that comes together. You get a little physical, get some pucks. Debenture way coyotes could be sitting somewhere. You just don't know. They had a decent year. They didn't make the playoffs. They the last team, I think eliminated for the playoffs, but they you just never ever know three two three five three eight twenty four twenty three at Chadbensonshow. Is your Twitter. You can tweet at us talk a little Kiana Reeves talk a little homelessness here in the valley. Talk about that guy wants ten million dollars for having his legs swept. Let me give you my take on that might not be popular. But you know what? At least I'm throwing it out there. Hey, every day, thousands of dogs are euthanized. While at the same time we'll lose twenty Veterans Day. Think about that. I'm working with a company called wounded paw project what they do is they go in and rescue shelter dogs. They're going to be euthanized train them to be service, dogs and then partner up with veterans first responders in their family. It is amazing. But the need your out the each cash, and if you don't say cash, I do you have an extra car an RV at truck a boat. I don't use it. I was going to trade it in. I was going to sell. It's not worth the hassle. You can have you're gonna get a tax deductible right off and that money is going to go to.
