Wet Notes - 4-9-21

"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty

Ten years after Fukushima, Japan remembers 'man-made' nuclear disaster

"Japan then caused a nuclear power plant in Fukushima to go into meltdown. It was a traumatizing event, one that left the Japanese public and the world wanting guarantees that a nuclear disaster like that would never happen again. But can Japan make that promise? Some of Japan's most prominent earthquake, experts say. Not really the world's Patrick win has more. Okumura. Koji is a paleo seismologist. That means he studies earthquakes, old earthquakes that may have shaken the earth. When wooly mammoths were still around. It's like archaeology off course Quake. Archaeology of earthquakes. Sounds really nish on Lee. It's not. It's actually a matter of life and death because if they fault erupted even 10,000 years ago, that's a sign that it might erupt again in our lifetime, and you really shouldn't build a nuclear reactor anywhere near it. Because this could happen. In 2011 tsunami created by an undersea earthquake that squeaking noise, those air buildings crumbling in a torrent of water. And at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Waves pounded the power plant, causing a meltdown. It happened on March 11 and Japanese people still call it 3 11 shorthand for catastrophe now, Okumura. He is one of the top earthquake experts in Japan. And before 3 11. He was on a government safety panel as a caveat. He wants to say this. Nobody knew and nobody could have predicted kid. What he means is no one could have predicted this earthquake at this specific time. But Okumura and a few others were warning the nuclear industry that some of their reactors were sitting on potentially shaky ground. In those days, nuclear companies were almost regulating themselves. But after 3 11, Japan started over what they knew nuclear watchdog agency one with an unofficial motto, the new nuclear regulatory regime in Japan must be the world's strictest, which tracks with an acknowledgement that seismic risk in Japan is among the world's worst. Drew Richard is an author whose new book, Every Human Intention follows Scientists struggling to figure out how to prevent another Fukushima because that's what people want to hear. Alice that this will never happen again. Okamura, the seismologist says. That's almost an impossible request. We cannot tell when underwear a big Oscar eco cars, he can tell you this, like it or not. No nuclear problem. These profit pretty save Every nuclear power plant, he says, comes with risk, especially in Japan. Here's the deal. Japan just doesn't have much oil or gas. So starting in the 19 sixties, with lots of American help, it went heavy on nuclear to power, one of the world's biggest economies. And they did this. Knowing Japan as a lot of earthquakes again. Here's Drew Richard nearly all of Japan in nearly all the sites where nuclear reactors are built, our seismically hazardous. It's a nation that faces a level of seismic risk that's almost uniformly comparable to Seismically active areas of California on Lee, California has one nuclear plant. Japan was running 50 Woz after 3 11 that nuclear watchdog shut down all of them. It has since allowed only five to reopen. Watchdog is so strict that even experts who were advising the government before the disaster are effectively not allowed to join. That includes scientists like Okumura, Koji. And others who were warning the government, Okumura says. They just scrap the whole system for them, or the system was useless and I'm used to, and I'm useless to, he says. Other Japanese seismologists, who could join the watchdog agency won't because well, scientists don't want the spotlight the immense political pressure Okumura says. Right now, the agency actually does not have a solid team of earthquake specialist say Don't Tall, you know, professional scientists. Yes, it's a big laws. Drew Richard says. Most earthquake experts agree seismic safety is a real blind spot in a real weak spot for the current regulatory agency. And that's glaring because the Fukushima disaster was a seismic event. That's bad, Richard says. The current top seismic safety regulator isn't really an earthquake expert. He's more of a geologist, so it's a little bit like asking an influential kidney doctor to operate on your heart. Richard says most officials mean well, yet they face a traumatized public. Still looking to scientist for peace of mind the expertise of these earthquakes, scientists has been applied to Ah, fundamentally impossible question that question. Are any of those dozens of reactor sites absolutely safe from earthquakes. And as it turns out on the basis of the limits of human knowledge At this time, the answer is maybe we don't know. At this point half of all Japanese people just don't want nuclear power at all. Nuclear companies are pushing to reopen their reactors, but keep getting denied. Try again, Regulators say, Make it safer. Meanwhile, with most nuclear plants closed, Japan has had to import way more coal, dirty polluting coal warming the whole planet and people aren't happy with that, either. Just listen to these protesters. Follows at US. I'll call, you know, Call Japan. They're chanting, Okamoto says. There are no easy solutions here. He knows the public. Just want scientist to tell them their energy source is safe. What science can never be published again. It's the nature or not. You're Hauser. I admit he also admits that actually, he wants more nuclear plants to open up. That's coming from the scientist who foresaw Lay Fukushima like nuclear nightmare. Look, some of Japan's plans should clearly never open again, He says. They're just too close to fault lines. For others. The odds of another earthquake seem low enough that Japan should take the risk. He says. The country needs power. Yes, I'm afraid people against nuclear power may be hungry after me. Just try not to be too angry at me, Okumura says. He's just a guy who wanted to study prehistoric earthquakes, never imagining that pursuit could affect the fate of his country. And the entire planet. For the world. I'm Patrick Quinn.

Undersea Earthquakes Reveal Sound Warming Info

"Climate change feels like something that's happening to the atmosphere but most of the action is actually at sea about ninety percent of the heat that gets trapped by greenhouse gases is absorbed by the ocean. So it's it's really important to track that energy and time it system and check the warming the ocean. Un kelly's an oceanographer at caltech. Of course the ocean is really big and taking its temperature is hard. Satellites give information about the surface and scientists have launched shifting devices that measure conditions in the upper mile of water but researchers still struggled to collect data from the deep ocean and to detect the long term trends underlying day to day variations in temperature now however scientists have developed a new technique that allows them to measure temperature changes across entire ocean basins. The idea dates back to the nineteen seventies when researchers first proposed using sound waves to study ocean warming because the speed of sound through water depends on the physical properties of that water which are related to temperature and lawfully if we will mobs ocean temperature by one degree this on the speed of change. It's it would be for meters pass. Kent and this is. This is very sensitive. Change when bo wu seismologist also at caltech who led the study that one degree he mentioned is a celsius degree researchers originally proposed using artificial sound sources but that notion got nixed because of concerns about the impacts on marine animals in the new study however woo kelly's and their colleagues show that they can use the sounds produced by earthquakes instead in an earthquake. Some vibrations bounced off the sea floor in. Turn into sound waves. That get picked up by seismometers. Underwater microphones the researchers. Looked the travel times of these sound waves for two thousand pairs of earthquakes. That occurred in the east indian ocean between two thousand and five and twenty sixteen. Each earthquake pair happened in the same place but at different times allowing the researchers to measure how much the sound waves sped up the analysis revealed that the waves traveled a few tenths of a second faster in more recent quakes than older ones a difference that translates to a warming trend zero point zero four degrees celsius per decade four. One hundredths of a degree may not sound like a lot. But it represents a huge amount of heat considering. It's the change in a body of water almost two thousand miles wide and several miles deep. The warming is also substantially higher than the rate reported in previous studies. Although kelly says not to put too much stock in those discrepancies. We don't know whether that is the general finding new curse Here in this in this region at this time or whether that is something we'll find another beach says while we just don't have the date is yet. the study is in the journal. Science kelly's and wu save this approach may even enable scientists to gauge historical temperature changes by studying data from much older earthquakes. In other words. You could say that the method is sound.

Deadly earthquake strikes near Greek islands, Turkish coast

"Rattle parts of Turkey and Greece today, leaving at least 19 people dead and injuring more than 700. The tremor knocked down buildings and triggered a small tsunami. Chaos as buildings collapsed in Turkey's third largest city is mere panicked residents fled into the streets. Paramedics rushed to treat the injured and crews worked furiously to pull out those trapped. Beneath the wreckage. Hundreds of people were hurt and dozens had to be rescued. I thought that the ground was shattered. You can't think at that moment are you trying to do is get out everywhere was collapsing down really panicked, managed to get out at the very last minute. The earthquake struck in the Aegean Sea between the Turkish coast and the Greek island of some O's in the early afternoon local time. The shock wave sent a small tsunami into a coastal district near Izmir, triggering flooding in the streets and the earthquake could be felt as far away as Turkey's biggest city, Istanbul, some 300 miles from Izmir. And in Greece's capital Athens. Seismologist predict the shallow depth of the quakes epicenter could lead to aftershocks for several weeks or even a month.

Get ready to drop cover and hold on for the great Washington shake out. According to seismologists, there is a 14% chance that western Washington will get hit with a magnitude nine earthquake. Within the next 50 years. And so that's why it's important to practice on how to prepare and stay safe for the next one. Maximilian Dixon is with Washington Emergency Management Division. It's so important because it's basically practicing muscle memory because we don't have. Fortunately, we don't have damaging earthquakes very often here in Washington state, but unfortunately, we don't get a lot of time to practice. Basically drop cover. Hold on, making sure you protect yourself. So this is your opportunity every year to practice that the great shakeout happens tomorrow. October 15th 10 15 at 10 15.

"Humans are a really noisy species, hammering and digging flying and driving delivering heavy cargo all over the world, and all that activity creates seismic noise which masks delicate signals from faraway small earthquakes Rafael. duplin seismologist at the national autonomous. University of Mexico Compares Listening for small. Earthquakes during normal times to sitting at a wedding at a table far away from the band he. He you can't really make out the music because there are so many people laughing and talking in between the loudspeakers, and so now the lockdown is like coming during the rehearsal. no-one is talking so even though your outweigh, the speakers are loud enough for you to listen to all the songs and clearly identified them during the global lockdown deployed, says he and. And his colleagues have been able to detect songs in this case seismic signals. They didn't even know existed, and now that they've identified those signals will be able to look back decades of data and use these newly discovered seismic fingerprints better identify small earthquakes like this in the past, the study co authored by more than seventy seismologists from around the world appears. Appears in the journal Science in addition to unmasking new seismic phenomena, the study also demonstrates how seismic data could be used to track human activity and movement like traffic patterns in a certain region for example and all without the privacy concerns that go along with cell phone tracking by definition.

Covid-19 Causes a Seismic Quiet Like No Other

"Life has been quieter lately hectic at home. Maybe but you've probably noticed less traffic fewer planes, flying overhead new research published today shows it's not just quieter above ground. Coronavirus lockdown also meant a quieting of seismic noise below ground. The world's Caroline Bieler explains when you think seismic waves, you probably think earthquakes. The tremors caused by tectonic plates, scraping against each other and releasing energy in waves through the Earth's crust, but on a much smaller scale we humans make seismic waves to. From traffic. Lane landing and taking off even lots of US gathering in a stadium. Just have a word for this one. They're called football. Quake's anyway. We mostly stopped leaving home this winter and spring a lot of that seismic noise. It stopped. What we discovered is as lockdown measured. Swear taking place in different countries around the world. That was very clear. Significant decrease seismic knows that's Raphael the plan. A researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico research he co authored was published in the journal Science today, and shows manmade seismic noise dropping up to half globally this spring, so that was very interesting, because it was offering us a very concrete observation of decided of people were staying home as a way to protect the job it. It also presented an opportunity for science. Usually, lots of seismic noise makes it harder for researchers to detect small earthquakes. One of the plans co-authors compared it to trying to hear your phone ring at a rock concert this spring. The background volume got turned down. We each and focus on the natural signals. Trying to detect very small is derived, couldn't be absorbed before with last mount of filtering and processing more like hearing that phone ring in a library deploy, says identifying these earthquakes when it's quiet. Quiet is going to make it easier for scientists to find them again. When all that background noise comes back, scientists across the globe have been making local observations sometimes with small seismometers in their basements since lockdown started McGill University geophysicist Yang. Djing says this study brings those observations together to paint a global picture. She wasn't involved with the research. I think this is so far. The most comprehensive Stati on the global scale I'm very impressed by the scope of the study. It's part of a relatively. Relatively new sub field called social seismology, which finds connections between seismic activity and things like economic growth. This is sort of new direction that part of says Molly, branching into so I think there is a lot of contribution that's as you might be able to make in addition to just looking at the earthquake shaking records in this case, seismologists see the vibrations were making or not, as a gauge of how faithfully we're following doctor's orders to stay close to home for the world.

What Scientists Uncovered About Earthquakes Using AI

"We're used to hearing about earthquakes in California the big ones, but we're not so used to hearing about the small ones. Turns out. There are a lot of them. Can we like California? For example for four years, Colella has experienced. A flurry of small earthquakes called a swarm just outside one of California's Mueller fault zones. But why is it happening? And why did it last so long seismologists using artificial intelligence to try and answer. Some of these questions are reporter. Daniela finance has been looking into this. This and she joins us now to explain Danielle thanks so much for being here closer to here. Thank you all right. Tell us about these swarm earthquakes, swarms of earthquakes. What does that actually entail? Yes, the to understand the an earthquake storm? We have to just go back to the earthquakes that we're used to right so in California in Mexico There's a lot of. Happening where you have to big tectonic plates that slipped past each other and the energy that that releases we feel as an earthquake, and so you have this one big earthquake called the main shock, and then maybe a couple of aftershocks afterwards, and then that dies off a time however. Earthquake swarms are a lot more mysterious and allusive and an enigmatic. They can happen without humans. Because earthquakes those shifts are so tiny, and so it takes special kinds of methods to detect them and understand when they're happening. Where and why, and so in this particular study that we covered this week you have the seismologists in California who were alerted to a possibility of a swarm by people who lived in the vicinity, and who wanted to know. Why are these earthquakes happening? And how long might they might be last, and so they took an artificial intelligence system that basically scanned a lot of recordings of course of years. Years to understand what was what was happening, and so the that they used scans, these recordings that look almost like sound waves, and they try to pinpoint the location and the time to get a sense of what's happening underground. I guess the reason we're always so concerned about big earthquakes is because they have big impacts on people. What kind of impacts to these swarms have? That is a good question and something that seismologist are still trying to figure out one of the outstanding questions when it comes to earthquake, science is. What triggers what triggers them? We typically think again of the two big plates slipping past each other, but the smallest. I talked to said that you know that is correct, but it's also an simplification. There's a lot of different things happening underground that we are just don't see because we don't have the instrumentation, and so for example in this particular swarm. What seemed to be happening? Is that at the base of much smaller fault? There was this break the seal broke and you had this fluid. They don't know what it is whether it's. Or Gas and that slips into cracks in the Rock in the surrounding, and so that act like a lubricant that makes it easier for these much smaller slabs of rock, much smaller than the tectonic plates to slip past each other, and whenever that happens, you have an earthquake if the that shifted that breakup is is small than you have a small earthquake larger that slip is the larger the magnitude, and so there's hundreds of these happening underground. We don't feel these scientists. Using the AI were able to pinpoint more than twenty two thousand now most them again didn't cause any damage because they. Weren't even felt, but the biggest one that they recorded was a four point four, which doesn't typically cause damage, but you could definitely feel that. Is this technology and the way that they're now able to analyze? These worms can help them have a better understanding of kind of the overall earthquake landscape. Yeah, one of the things that one of the seismologist I spoke to said is that. Anytime you can pinpoint what triggers what starting point for an earthquake is in this case again it was that fluid being able to see the rock. You get a better understanding of the very dynamic processes that are happening underground that trigger, shaking or movement or quakes, and so even though I each fault system is different, the techniques can be re purposed to study other swarms whether they happen And under volcanoes under glaciers to understand how these minute movements might then add up and trigger. Something bigger doesn't always happen, but you know if this fluid was seeping into. A bigger fault like it is conceivable that that could also affect. The propensity of a that fault the bigger fall to slip, and so by looking at these smaller earthquakes can get clues as to the mechanisms that might also play into the bigger ones that actually do cause damage

The Cascadia Subduction Zone

"Today we're going to look at the Cascadia subduction zone, and what could be a mega quake the Pacific northwest subduction zone earthquakes have occurred every three hundred fifty years since six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for earlier quakes come from core samples taken from the. The Ocean floor, and from rings counted in the Ghost forest that I'll talk about a little bit later. The seventeen hundred quake caused several coastal regions, Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet, massive coastal storms during nine, hundred and ninety, seven, Ninety, eight, washed away tons and tons of sand, revealing hundreds of stumps, the remnants of a Sitka spruce forced. It is through. Through a combination of carbon dating an accounting of rings that the data, the last Cascadia subduction zone or C. S. Z. quake took place.

Human Life Is Literally Quieter Due To Coronavirus Lockdown

"Life on down inside our homes might be noisy outside. The streets and skies are noticeably quieter. And because there's less human sound out there. Many people are hearing more wildlife as invisible. Is Amy Wendell reports? The relationship between human noise and the rest of nature is often discordant. So is our quiet in this moment. Having any impact the Internet is humming with rumors of animals. Reclaiming cities and towns. Dolphins are allegedly swimming in Venetian canals. Black bears are supposedly rating trash cans in La and mountain. Goats have been seen descending the Welsh hills to stroll through town some of these quarantine silver lining stories have been debunked though for now at least the goats seem legit but other anecdotes about nature being more present in the absence of humans. Come from reliable sources. Npr's Eleanor Beardsley observed for the first time in years birds singing throughout Paris. But what really we've on is. I'm sitting by the San River right now on a sunny evening and I just heard a river bird like egrets on polls and stuff. Is that not wild? I have never heard that before. Yeah we can hear subtlety of life around us that we haven't heard in a long long time this is Bernie Krause. One of the founders of a field called soundscape ecology that studies. How all the sounds in an ecosystem interact with each other and with us. Crouse has been recording the natural world for more than fifty years and in that time he's observed lots of ways are noise is disruptive to wildlife to the fraud in Jeff. He tells this story of how back in the Nineteen Ninety S. He was recording thousands of frogs that gather in the spring at Mono Lake in California and Croke in unison Buddhist. Really big almost like all the little frogs have joined together to become one giant frog. It's actually a defense mechanism helps keep predators from locating and attacking individual frogs but cross says the military started doing test flights over mono basin and the roar of the jets would cause the frogs to fall out of sync. Say would take like forty five minutes before they could get in sync again and during that period of time we watched as a couple of great horned owls. Coyote came in and picked off a couple of frogs. Eventually this led to significant population decline. All because of a jet across says it's not just jets it's helicopters and chainsaws and tractors and traffic messages endless mounts of noise until now with billions of people stuck inside our noise. Sprint is dramatically quieter in Paris. For instance a group that monitors noise pollution saw as much as a ninety percent. Drop in human sounds since the city went on lockdown so how is this relative? Quiet impacting wildlife. There was a question trending on Google. Arbor D- singing louder. This is Megan goal. A sensory ecologist and professor at Vassar College. If anything I would actually guessed that the birds are not singing as loud. That's because goal says they aren't having to compete against human sound which could be a good thing for the birds for one thing. All explains noise has been shown to increase stress hormone responses in birds which affects immune function. So less noise right now might equal less illness plus birds living in bustling cities or even busy suburban neighborhoods. Have to expend a lot of energy singing louder so now that things are quieter she says the birds might have extra energy to us on different things like spending time foraging saving energy to feed your kids etc so possibly will see animals that have larger broods or healthier offspring. You might also get changes in how females are selecting meets now out of that speculation of course but I think there's a lot of really interesting things that could be happening while how this all plays out for wildlife is for the time being left to informed speculation one impact of our stillness is ringing clear as a bell so the earth is like literally humming underneath our feet that's right. Yep. Any for Seto is seismologist. Who recently observed along with colleagues in Brussels in California a huge drop in human caused vibrations on the Earth's crust it was impressive It was just a reminder that we as a civilization have a noticeable imprint on the world in ways that sometimes we don't appreciate I for one did not appreciate that. Humans rattle the earth like a tiny earthquake. But we do mostly from transportation automobiles planes trains even are walking registers on seismographs as a kind of constant static and now that static is way less noisy giving seismologists a unique opportunity to perhaps detect more subtle vibrations that usually get drowned out like the ones coming from inside volcanoes close to cities. I think it's an open question. How strong this changes? But it's something that I know. People in the seismology community are really interested in exploring and some scientists are attempting to measure this strange and profound sonic experiment above ground. The silent cities project is a call for scientists journalists artists. Really anyone with good enough audio equipment to record what they're hearing while stuck at home to me. It's very peaceful to walk and be able to hear liberty. Tiny sounds Amandine. Gas is a soundscape ecologist in France who helped create the project back insects moving in leaves for example. Does eating the flowers. Also it's spring right now so so increase also annoys the wildlife. Sounds you hear so far? Participants are recording one hundred and sixty one locations all over the world and the data an expected thirty five thousand dollars or more audio will be available for any researcher who wants to analyze it in the future. Listening to our new sound environment is not just for researchers though ecologist making gall says it can be for everyone one of potentially positive things that could come out of. This is that people are having a chance to interact with the world around them in a way that they may be having interacted with before and those interactions could lead people like eleanor. Beardsley to not only consider the wildlife around them now. The birds singing on the sun but help them keep it in mind as things get back to being noisier.

Discovering 'Stormquakes'

"Seattle Calgary or Juno. You might have felt it October. Twenty Eighth Two thousand twelve seven point eight magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Canada near the archipelago of Haida Guay earthquakes. Earthquakes aren't unusual in that area. Because there's a big fault line nearby but it turned out buried in the data associated with this earthquake. was something unusual joie. We were not particularly looking for something but we were Trying to look for earthquake Evolution processes when you in fan is a professor officer at Florida State University. I am has Malla Gist. Or you can say a geophysicist in a more general term and so a couple years back when he he was looking at the data from the two thousand twelve earthquake off the coast of Canada he noticed spent before that big earthquake struck. There were records of what looked. I like smaller earthquakes nearby just migrating from north to south and by noticing that I saw I found a precursor to the earthquake creek and that was quite exciting to me and that would have been pretty cool on its own a previously unknown precursor to a big seven point eight earthquake but just to make sure it was a real thing when you looked at some data from two years before and the year after so not only to Intel thousand ten thousand thirteen. Tom And what we started to find is that such activities would would happen but only happen during wintertime. uh-huh so those smaller earthquakes in the ocean weren't a precursor to the big earthquake all because they happen before it and after it to now. You don't have to be a seismologist to know that earthquakes don't exactly know when it's wintertime. That's right that's right. Yeah earthquakes aren't seasonal right. They kind of just happen when they happen by. The weather is no sure is so that was Eureka. The Eureka moments saying while the nationality of this sussman activity obviously is quite important. What when you in some of his colleagues would later confirmed? Is that storms out in the ocean. We're causing what they say is a seismic phenomenon that they never knew about before instead of finding earthquakes. We found storm cracks storm. Quakes this episode. How they happen and what they could teach us? I'm Maddie Safai. In this shortwave. The daily science podcast from NPR VR.

Despite Bankruptcy And Illness, Bob Murray Remains A Loud Voice For Coal

"Into Bob Murray's Corner Office in Saint Clair's Ville Ohio feels like stepping back in time. Mr Brady's here Murray wears dark suit jacket with a silk handkerchief poking out of the pocket he sits behind a large dark wood desk. Nice to meet to. Oh Murray returns eighty years old in January and his less steady on his feet than it used to be. He suffers from lung disease but says it's not related to years of working underground in coal minds. There's constant hissing sound in his office. That's the Oxygen Murray needs debris he says three hospitals have rejected him for a lung transplant. Because because of history of strokes not on my fighting for my own life. But I'm fighting for the life of my employees. My company Murray's is recent bankruptcy comes after a long career. He began as a minor then built his own company. Eventually with seven thousand employees. Natalie Biggs is a coal industry three analyst with Wood Mackenzie so a lot of coal companies had Undergone bankruptcy and around Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and Murray was one of the ones sounds that actually kind of made it through that period and was able to purchase a lot of assets off the back of that or bankruptcy boom big says Murray energy took on debt as the the coal market continued to decline and bankruptcy. Murray says he'll lose ownership of his company. Some of his unionized workers may lose healthcare and pension benefits benefits and the filing is a political loss for president trump. We have ended the war on American energy and we have ended. Ah The war on beautiful. Clean Coal Bob. Murray has had the trump administration's ear. He drafted an action implant. Help coal than delivered it to Energy Secretary Rick Perry photos from the meeting. Show the two men hugging while trump rolled back some environmental regulations. On Murray's is list the administration was not able to deliver the subsidies for coal plants. That Murray wanted he argues that Cole. With fuel stored on site is more reliable. The a natural gas that's piped in and renewable energy that depends on the sun and wind still. Coal is losing market share to these cheaper and cleaner ways of generating being electricity murray argues that makes the electric grid less reliable. But all of a sudden one of these days you'll be hearing about on NPR about this power grid failure and people are going to become alarmed and all of a sudden they don't forget this nonsense called Climate Change Murray predicts that will come during a winter storm and that people will freeze to death. Frankly this is just a scare tactic. Tactic Marianne hit with the Sierra Club. Says there are smart. People running the country's power grids they take into account every coal plant closing and make sure the grid remains remains reliable. Empty promises about bailing out coal plants or reviving the fortunes of the coal industry are just distracting our country from from the real work we need to be doing hit. Says that is moving. The country away from coal and toward cleaner Renewable Energy Murray's climate denial and call boost booster. ISM are evidence of a key element of his personality once. He's concluded he's right about something Murray doesn't give in. Here's another example of that at twelve years ago Murray Energy made news for a tragic mind collapse in Utah that trapped six workers or singing my life I take it obviously to my grave. Demand were never located and ten days later. Three rescuers died as another section of the mine collapsed. A government report concluded there were flaws in the mind design. Murray's company was find more than a million dollars for safety violations yet even today Murray Denies Responsibility. A lot of blame being pointed in the end I was correct. It was an earthquake seismologists at the University of UTAH. Say say. That's just not true. The earthquake was the result of the mind collapsing even now as he struggles for breath just walking across the room. Murray is still oh pushing for what he believes. As company was preparing for bankruptcy Murray delivered a speech in West Virginia calling on federal regulators to subsidize coal. Aw and keep his industry alive.

Earthquake App Provides Early Warnings

"The LA area shook early Friday thanks to a magnitude three point five earthquake centered near Compton but on Thursday Californians got access to an early warning system the could allow a heads up of up to twenty seconds just enough time to stop drop and take cover the early warning alert is available through an app called my shake developed in part by Richard Allen the director of the Berkeley seismological lab he joins us now from the UC Berkeley campus welcome great to be with you Lou Lou first things first to the app alert users to that Compton quite so no so that as quick as you said was any magnitude three and a half of quake and so we only send out alerts when the earthquakes of greater than a magnitude four point five and then we only send out the alert to regions expected to see shaking intensity three which means most people feel a bit of a jolt and how does it work what does it use to sense an incoming quake and then what does it do so what underlines the system is a system called chez Collette shaken that is a system that has traditional seismic sensors across all of California it detects the earthquake when it's under way and then with very rapid algorithms we analyze that data and we determine the area that is likely to experience shaking and so that's what creates the kernel of an alert and then once we have that the my shake system takes it it identifies the phone so that are in within a region that are gonna feel shaking and it pushes the alert out to those phones is there hope of increasing the time of the warning period to say minutes hours days is that something that you foresee might be something that science will be able to do so it's important to understand that earthquake early warning is about rapidly detecting an earthquake that's under way and then pushing out to know that ahead of the shaking so that gives us the limitation on the time how much time is that between when an earthquake starts and when people might feel the shaking our best estimate so that we can provide a few seconds to a few tens of seconds of warning with both the technology and the science we have at our disposal today now in the really big earthquakes that time cannot should be a few minutes and of course the research continues the development continues and we can see whether we can increase that for more than just a few seconds to a few tens of seconds we'll have to see what we cannot do is go beyond those minutes so when we talk about a few days now we're talking about prediction with talking about predicting when the earth quakes going to start that's a completely different problem we don't know how to solve that problem and so I think most seismologists would agree that's unlikely in the foreseeable future and obviously California is not the only place in the world that suffers earthquakes is this technology available elsewhere in the world it could be used anywhere else in the world so they're just a few places that have early warning today it's Mexico Japan and now California or the the big ones I'm in the challenge there is that they have to have these traditional seismic networks that are expensive to run and so that's one of the research pieces here with the my shake cap is it in fact in every X. S. smartphone is an accelerometer senses the deacon to tech to earth quakes and so what we're doing is we're exploring the ability to also detect the earthquakes with smartphones and if we can do that then we could do a quick early warning wherever they are smart phones and they're all basically smartphones wherever there are people so the ultimate goal here is to actually be able to deliver earthquake early warning around the globe and I assume you have the app on your phone of course I've had the app on my phone for quite some time I've been faithful genet to be getting the leads a quite a few months at this point Richard Allen is the director of the Berkeley seismological lab and help develop a new earthquake early warning app thank you

First fully contained underground nuclear test - September 19, 1957

"Pillow. Welcome to this day in history class where we flipped through the book of history and bring you a new page every day. Today is September nineteenth twenty nineteen. The day was September nineteenth nineteen fifty seven the first fully contained underground detonation took place at a research center in Nevada. The test which was part of a series of nuclear tests called Operation Plumb Bob did not produce produce any radioactive fallout operation plumb bob stirred up controversy once much of it was declassified. Operation Plumb Bob Up was a series of twenty three nuclear detonations in six safety tests conducted by the US military between May and October of nineteen fifty seven at the Nevada test site the test took place during the Cold War at a time when the US and the Soviet Union were engaged in a nuclear arms race. The two were spending a lot of time and money on developing bigger and better nuclear weapons like the hydrogen bomb. The threat threat of nuclear war was always present. The Nevada test site was an important insight for atmospheric and underground nuclear testing from the nineteen fifties to the nineteen ninety s Operation Plumb Bob was one of many series of nuclear tests conducted during this time but it was a particularly long and comprehensive series series it tested nuclear weapons for potential inclusion in the defense arsenal most of the shots in the series were conducted to test design principles for nuclear nuclear warheads that would be put on intercontinental and intermediate range missiles but Plumb Bob also tested warheads to make advances in air defense. It's and anti-submarine weapons systems. The safety tests were designed to make sure that there would be no nuclear reaction if it's high explosive components components were accidentally detonated in addition to this the operation allowed the military to test the effect of nuclear blasts on structures aircraft and and it allows scientists to study the effects of radiation on living organisms pigs were subjected to experiments to test protective materials and the effects of flying debris. The Rainier test was conducted on September nineteenth. At four fifty nine. PM local time in an underground around tunnel a modified w twenty five warhead was used for the test. It's explosive yield was one point seven kilotons because it wasn't underground tests. It was not easily observable by outsiders and had less potential of causing a massive amount of fallout seismologists around the world could detect the tests which was conducted to evaluate containment and detection of underground nuclear tests the success excessive rainier incited efforts to understand the phenomenology of contained underground explosion those included tunneling into the radioactive zone theoretical article modeling and lab measurements more underground tests were conducted the next year but in late nineteen fifty eight the US Britain and the the Soviet Union agreed to a three year moratorium on nuclear testing after that almost all nuclear testing Nevada was done underground during the nuclear testing phase of Operation Bob. A lot of radiation was released into the air since the other tests were not underground declassified documents documents revealed that the Plumb Bob Tests released about fifty eight thousand three hundred kilo curies of radio iodide into the atmosphere over four months civilians and troops who conducted exercises near detonations were exposed to relatively high levels of radiation nuclear fallout is a hazard to the environment and to biological life and it can cause illness and death in nineteen sixty three the US and a Soviet Union along with other countries signed the partial test ban treaty which banned nuclear weapons tests in the atmosphere in outer space and underwater.

Californian earthquake

"Earlier this month southern California was rocked by two of the largest earthquakes. The region has experienced in twenty years for one man Jacob Margolis. All is the aftermath of the six point four and seven point. One magnitude tremors was a rare opportunity. It was a chance to remind fellow. Los Angeles residents about seismic seismic safety because few Californians a prepaid for a much bigger catastrophic quake which seismologists say is on the way his North America correspondent James Glen Day out in the middle of the desert one hundred and sixty miles away from where you're standing. There are two enormous tectonic plates that have been trying to slide past ask each other for millions of years but they're stuck today. They slept. That's Jacob Margolis describing a moment many in Los Angeles have buried somewhere way deep in the back of their minds the start of a massive earthquake. That's long being dubbed the big war. There's a huge quake on the San Andreas Fault in southern California. Every hundred years or so we haven't had one for about one hundred sixty early the see the journalists did K._p._C._C. Radio released this podcast on how to survive the coming catastrophe and right now he's in high demand interest in the big one has spiked following recent strong tremors that rattled the region in GonNa take probably nobly I think forty eight seventy two hours is good asking it probably closer to seventy two for outside help to get in and so you'll see roads severed train lines will be severed heard about eighteen hundred people will also die some from the inevitable building collapses some will burn you have a number of both electrical and gas fires that break <music> out and when those fires break out spread very very fast and we do not have enough emergency responders to respond to all the problems that will break out all those fires and the even the mayor of Los Angeles says that's one of his greatest fears and if it hit in like September or October when it's hot and it's like when he <hes> you know just like our hills like neighborhoods. Neighborhoods are going to burn and the water pipes will probably be cracked. Some roads will be impossible and so putting the FIS out could be tough but for the vast majority of people the biggest challenges will come in the weeks afterwards. I mean there's certain things like people won't have like people don't have access to <hes> hospitals. Possibles will be overrun. There's many hospitals in the state eight that are actually not seismically okay <hes> and in addition to that like you won't have access to emergency services for a period of time after the quake they're going to have to be self sufficient and and that's really scary to getting a badly crippled southern. California through such a challenging period requires preparation like bookcases screwed to wolves glass objects removed from key walkways in buildings a few weeks of water and food per household not to mention basic medical supplies so nowhere near enough people already. I I think people struggle and my this is myself included. I lived through the nineteen ninety-four Earthquakes Northridge Earthquake here in Los Angeles. That was supremely destructive. People died. I was out of my home with the kids and. And I still didn't have any of my resources ready. When I started this podcast and breezy it because you don't know and that's coming and so people kind of push it off shirow pressured off the problem with this it can literally happen at any time it can happen while we're recording this right now. It didn't obviously and it might not for decades but on the fourth of July ally when the earth started to shake into magnitude seven point one tremor struck Mr Montgelas felt calm and prepaid. He knew he'd be okay and in this fleeting period of heightened fear in the region. He's urging everyone to get ready now. It cost me fifty bucks to go out and buy enough water for two and a half weeks for a family of three and like if you don't have that kind of money I think it might be worth saving and making that best friend because it's your him so much better off if you have those basic things and that report from a North America correspondent James Glendale.

Astronomers believe they have found the famous lunar module from the Apollo ten mission five decades after it was released in the space by the crew. The module measuring just four meters wide was named Snoopy and was believed to have been lost forever in nine hundred million kilometers space. After was jettisoned off Snoopy named after the little lovable cartoon dog was used as a practice run for the Apollo eleven lunar Lander to take place, two months after Apollo ten in July of nineteen sixty nine we're coming up on fifty years next month, two of the three astronauts transferred into it to announce a two to fifty thousand feet above the moon's surface, they then returned to the command module after demonstrating the docking maneuver worked. The mission was over Snoopy was shot off into space. They lost it and they think now they have founded a very large massive unknown. Material has been discovered on the largest crater on the moon and scientists aren't. Sure what it is. They have no idea. Let's check in with what else is going on in space with Stephen Cates doctor sky high. Stephen. Tonight. Ladies and gentlemen, Georgia tonight is the night of Jupiter, but more on that in just a moment just to add onto your story about the largest impact base on the moon. This large region at the moon south pole simply known as the lunar south pole Aitken basin area on the moon around fifteen hundred miles. Now, think about that, folks. That's about a quarter of the moon service. The basin was formed by a large asteroid impact. And as you mentioned correctly, this large metallic body is probably buried in the moon's Mansell, this happened allegedly about four billion years ago. Important about this story to add onto it. This is the region that future astronauts, wanna build the permanent lunar base simply because it's rich in minerals, just like we described and something very precious alive water is. But George here we go with the live sky this, ladies and gentlemen, not to repeat it, but proudly to do. So is the night of Jupiter. It was closest to us today. George at eleven AM eastern daylight time for this period, some three hundred ninety eight million miles away, but as of nine PM Pacific daylights on Jupiter. Exactly was three hundred ninety eight million two hundred twelve thousand one hundred seventy nine miles from the earth.

"This is not going to surprise you. There has just been a mild earthquake in eastern Oregon seismologist at the university of Washington in Seattle say the quake measured three point nine in magnitude. It was one hundred and twenty eight miles east of Portland, Oregon in Gilliam county, seismologists get this say the quake was focused about one mile below the earth's surface. There will be more news of quakes before this night. And the next night end. We are in a very specific window for earthquakes. A comet blazes in our night sky tomorrow night during a full moon. There will be a near full eclipse. My guest is Laurie toy and here. She is once again, Lori. Here's somebody with a sense of humor. Brian says Laurie just doesn't realize the EPA will not put up with this scenario. It'd be a major challenge. Would you ask Laurie? I'm reading you faxes that are pouring in. Would you ask Gloria about the thought of how all of the prophecies are connected to a group oversaw sort of an overall conscious consciousness? I'm sorry. Another words as we're matter in spirit, therefore, we as a whole doing compass, the earth, and the earth is also matter so it is spirit, you know, the concept of mother earth, and we are part of that. Are they talking about holographic reality that kind of weather? I guess so I guess our thoughts create the nature of reality. Yes. I've always. I know that that is true. And I that's why of course, I always, you know, indicate that, you know, this is not an inevitability because if that is indeed true, scientists are proving more and more day, perhaps, maybe our thoughts even can change the most catastrophic other, Dan. I want to ask you I want to ask you about a very personal worry. And I've thought about it. And I bet you have to and that is that when you go public as a prophet, and you predict truly catastrophic earth changes of the kind that you are predicting. That. You're going to cause them to occur. A lot of people. You know, stay that, you know, often about prophets who do this type of work. But I I also feel that you know, when you understand what prophecy is is a spiritual teaching, and and that is a process that prophecy within itself is a good process or anyone to go through because it allows you then to to work through fear, and and it curious by you know, and and renew yourself in asset you're doing you're doing that. But I would say more people than not are not doing that. And so is it not aware of how to do it? Right. But is it not possible lorry that by telling them what's about to occur? And I believe it is that you put so much fear in them. And they then as a group consciousness. Here. There are more of them than there are of you that is their choice. That is ultimately their choice of how they're going to deal with the information. I mean, if that were the case, then maybe we'd better not even turn on the news anymore. Well, I think that sometimes I think that I think that I think we need to know what is happening. I think that particularly this type of information that there is a duty to explain it in its totality of of what it carries in the potential that it has holds for humanity. Because not again, I'll reiterate this an elite. Does it talk about, you know, the sinking California's sticking thinking of the Pacific northwest, you know, the change on planet earth as we now know it with tremendous cataclysmic change on the other side is the potential for this whole new time. What about the east coast Laurie? The prophecies for the east coast are are frightening. Hurricane winds primarily held and beat the east coast into a series of islands. You're going to see a New York City underwater, you're gonna see much of Maryland in Washington DC underwater will have a new capital, by the way, that's in the prophecy any idea where I I don't know where they they always called it the Christ on in the prophecy. And I've often wondered if that was Crestone Colorado. Often drawn that correlation there you're you're gonna see north and South Carolina broken up during the times of changes in their whole coastline becoming a series of islands, the lower tip, afforded sakes becomes a swampland. And then thanks Miami. Is now underwater the main becomes landlocked of by ocean. Fully glaciers, and remains sort of the sporozoites solid mass. They see for several hundred years. Well, we're always picking on California. So I'm not going to say, I'm glad to hear about the east coast problems. But everybody always picks on California's sinking which you also suggest but the east coast. It sounds like they're in for about as much trouble as we are. We're all in it together. Good way to put it really holding it together. And there isn't going to be one area that is it going to, you know. Go through the changes that are prophesied if we do indeed entered this time of prophecy in the mid in the mid west or seeing that right now with the flooding of the Ohio river, this is I have never Laurie in all my time alive, which admittedly is not long in the cosmic realm of things, but I have never seen whether never seen whether like we're having now Ed dames, the remote viewer, I referred to earlier said soon the jet stream will begin coming down on deck, and he said that many many months ago, and I started watched some weather forecasts of this incredible weather, we've been having an I'll be damned if they didn't start saying the weather guys on the Weather Channel in effect. We've got one hundred mile per hour. Plus wins hitting the north west at times, Oregon that those areas even way back east, Massachusetts. It's and literally what's occurring is the weather guys said it the jet stream is coming down near the deck. Oh, yeah. And also, the El Nino, you know, in California that that affects what's known as the rosbif wave which sends an oceanic current, you know, clear over to Africa back which has they signed are now claiming is the reason for the flavor of Mississippi and the Missouri river, but my dad's a farmer and from several generations of farmer farmers. And he says this is just incredible what's happening in the Arctic the Larsen ice shelf, according to mainstream scientists is about to break off float away and melt. Ocean floating glaciers, that's what they said on the prophecies. And that we would we would subsequently see the melting of the of the polar ice caps in the prophecies. Also, they talked about extreme temperatures that we would see, you know, long autumns summers lasting, you know, almost up to December winners, you know, into April June. These things are happening. They are they're hurricane season by the year. Now every year is getting worse and longer getting worse and worse in the prophecies. The master stated that the earth would be tied by all the element earth. Wind fire and water purification that all the elements would be present. If this particular purification are there too many of us here. I I don't know masters. Never indicated anything about that. We were too populated or anything. Again. I I feel that we're we're we're supposed to be I think that whose ever here at this time during the time of the great purification is here because they are supposed to be here. So if more people do Cobb as a result of that are born during this time, there is a reason for their presence. Here is the classic question. I'd be interested. How you'll answer it Laurie. Most of the people who have ever existed are alive right now. So how do you reconcile? This fact with the notion of reincarnation if reincarnation is true, then only a small percentage of the population could ever have been reincarnated that's from Tom and Missoula Montana. Well, as I understand it on the wheel of life, death, and rebirth is that sometimes we do take breaks, and we might stay in other dimensions berko to other solar system. Yes. And reincarnate there or or stay in the other dimensions. Not take physical form staying spirit world. And sometimes we might wait as long as two to five hundred years before we, you know, reincarnate some some people claim that reincarnation is a very fat process. Again, I'm north authority on this. But dashes some would I do understand about it. So that might kind of play into that fact that you know, we're not all here. We know what Laurie the last time. I did an interview with you. It seemed to difficult notion to grasp because as far as we were concerned, and this was only a few years ago. And it tells you how we are quickening we knew of no other life anywhere. The notion was fantastic. And now all of a sudden OG microbial alive on Mars hustle, close by and the very high probability of life on Jupiter's moons, by the way, NASA just went by and took a whole bunch photographs of Jupiter's moons. And for some unknown reason they're not releasing those photographs to the public. So the notion of life suddenly elsewhere is common not uncommon as it was the last time, I talked to you. So then the notion of beings intelligent, perhaps is not only probable, but damn near in my estimation. Absolute so you can imagine that it would be souls beyond the earth that conflicts, I know with a lot of traditional religion. But it doesn't conflict for me with common sense. Oh, no. I mean when you really do think about it. It's it's sort of an inner truth. But I I agree with you are that we are in a quick and easy in a sense. I mean, it does seem like that that more people are opening up to the commend this possibility could exist on the other side. More people are polarizing. What's happening? Looks just look at the societal side of things, and this is from, you know, a talk show host point of view. I'm fond of saying this. There was a day in America. Long ago where if you were a bad guy, and you were going to go rob the equivalent today of a seven eleven or whatever you would go in and you'd hold your gun, and you take the money away from the guy and you back out the door and get in the car and zoom away today. The difference is the bad guy walks into the seven eleven takes all the money. And for no reason discernible other than the joy of killing puts a bullet through the head of the clerk gets in the car zooms away. In other words, life has been drastically cheapen. We've got children dropping other children out of windows. We've got mothers throwing children out of windows. No respect for life itself. Something like that have very much data was another part of the prophecies that this all sort of fits in. I mean when you kinda get the overall perspective on it. You can see how this fits in at this time. I just mentioned people are even more polarized in in the teaching speak about you know, that we have a good side and a dark side. And if we don't face are dark side that isn't cited us and begin to own that and understand that and mold and shape that dark towards good through our choices that that we will not be able to move on into the new world, but the dark side is winning. I mean, if if it's a wild battle that can be defined as a winner and a loser the good and the bad well at the exists side by side in the prophecies. They they call that balance prince that Artha called it the middle way, the Hopi, call it to walk in balance, you understand that there is a middle way that we can walk when we understand that both of these realities are existing side by side, it lessons are suffering in this time. But the darker it becomes the more. I personally believe that the prophecy that you have told of is now set in stone. It would have to be because you've got to understand much like this. Winging you know of a pendulum as much as it swings down. You know over to the darker side. It must swing now over to this lighter side, and and that is what we have to, you know, hold a focus for we have to guess what I think not until after the change you describe. I'm I'm most likely very possible. See I'm out doing you in the doom and gloom Mary here. I can actually out do you? I really think it's coming, and I do believe there will be a better day. And I don't think mankind will be totally wiped out. But the fact of the matter is I think most of us will well automatically goodwill. Come from all of it all all of it. But I do agree with you. You know, that we we do it to be practical to we have to think about what is ahead and how how do we properly plan? Of course, you know, what we've just for talking about. We're talking about spiritual preparation, but you know, there is the other side of of actual physical preparation. You know, are we living in the right place? Are we living where we should be living? Good. Let's talk about that. A lot of times, you know. I mean, we live in a practical world you're talking to a lot of people living in Los Angeles right now, Laurie they have jobs, they have families. They have careers. They just can't pick up and move so easily..
