U.K. becomes first country to approve Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine

"The uk government appears to be trying to use the news that a covid vaccination has been licensed for use in this country to create good pr around brexit but england's health minister matt hancock who claimed fast tracking the pfizer vaccine was only possible because the uk was able to act outside of european union. Regulations has been firmly contradicted by the chief executive of the h. r. a. the body that handled the process. Well joint for more. On this by vincent mcilvanney. He's a political reporter and one of monocle twenty four regular contributors. Welcome back to the globalist vinnie. Can you tell us how. The story unfolded i. We had the great news that the vaccine had been licensed then matt. Hancock really dived into controversy. That's i think there was a genuine needle relief and celebration yesterday that the government made this announcement and they'd obviously planned this. Kathleen they have. The scientists going through detail televised press conference yesterday morning just to the public in very layman's terms. How the vaccine had been approved what it would do how it would be rolled out and then we have prime minister's questions where boris johnson and stone had a pretty friendly about They did simply questions about how the rollout would happen. it was. It was quite a public education session then in the afternoon the government seem to trip over itself They started to say. There was a bit of pushback from the germans at the brit. Saying that this was you know a real day for british signs that this was great for. They don't this and then. My ankle comments on braxton. Also jacob re smog sang we could only approved vaccine so quickly because we've left the eu last month we change regulations vaccine didn't need eu approval which has slower and this ready then lead them into problems because that has been debunked has been fact checked by various organizations to say that. That's not the case. It was actually permitted under eu law And that was the point. Made as you mentioned by the head of the ease at medicines regulator on wednesday that this states could act unilaterally and false tracking it. So it's very strange that they have tried to do something which shouldn't be political. Shouldn't be kind of you know doused in one camp or another particular when it comes to leave or remain when it comes to brexit which is still divisive issue here in the uk at a point where we still don't have a brexit deal and then negotiations are ongoing to try and sully it somewhat by putting it in minds of some of the public with brexit is not a good idea and as you say germany took exception to this. Yes they did. They perspective said quite rightly in this european achievements. And perhaps the british government's if they done this. I with the oxford astra zeneca vaccine something which we expect to happen in the next ten days or so then they could claim you know a real big moment for british science and claim that the own but to claim that this landlocked. Because you've fast track vaccine that was developed at the over. The you know in the comfort. And that's gonna be coming from. Belgium is a bit of a strange move by the government. This is the government absolutely desperate for some good news. We have the worst death figures in europe and yesterday was another six hundred forty will so debts in the previous twenty four hours we the west infection rates and so you know they are really desperate now to make sure that they can trump it some of these achievements as their own and i notice. Boris johnson appear to roll back a little bit when he was asked about it later and he talked about international efforts and really quite successfully dodged the question. Yes he did. i think he knows. And perhaps the scientists said got to them that you cannot tie this to to brexit something. That is incredibly divisive and that pass. It wasn't true you know. There's enough missing formation going on about of cave nineteen vaccines that. The government really shouldn't be contributing to it and this something that she came up pm cues and the prime minister sort of echoed that said labour had put out last month and m seems the government will be moving forward that there will be some kind of penalty and fines in put in place to stop the misinformation and the spreading of anti vaccine summation on social media and on the social media platforms themselves. Something that they will have to watch out for. We're waiting for details on that still but it's not a good idea that the government would be putting out false information itself on that same day. Of course this isn't the kind of stuff damaging stuff that we're seeing spreading conspiracies about what the vaccine will do to you. But it's still doesn't help you sell your message somewhat. Absolutely i mean this. I suppose was an attempt just to trumpet. britney's truly global. Yes to trumpet global britain. Something that trying to do. It's also you know the final few days really off. The brexit negotiations going on central london images lost night if boxes and boxes of pizza being delivered to the negotiators so they won't see talking late into the night prisoners facing a real problem and i think part of why the government probably wants pasta quickly. Is that if by the end of this week. We don't have a deal. One becomes very unlikely and so at the end of this month. The uk will leave the european union now. All countries have struggled with their economies. Jerry the pandemic but imagine the double whammy in twenty twenty one of britain also suffering the effects of that no deal brexit. We know that it would be hugely detrimental to the economy and so britain than any country around the world needs to get its workforce vaccinated. Needs to have them feeling confident. Needs the well to think that this is a place that you can come and trade and do business in because it's safe and they need people back out there as much as possible working and so the vaccine really is so critical to be rolled out here to make sure that life can get back to as much as normal as possible because the economy is facing this double threat unlike any others around the well. The yes are repercussions in europe full brexit but not to the extent of the areas here in the uk. I mean the prime minister has warned that there may be logistical problems. Getting the vaccine out particularly to care homes. Yeah that's right. And i think we have to look at the separate vaccine. Say of the fis at biotech. One has very specific needs so has to be stored at just under minus seventy degrees centigrade and has a lifespan of about a month as well and so they don't want basically it cannot be moved again so we're getting the first eight hundred thousand off the forty million order coming from belgium in the next few days. Now that number you have to divide it by two. Because you need to inoculation say britain's ordered forty at that means twenty million people can be vaccinated and the clock is ticking to make the most of that investment in this vaccine to get it to the most critical people but because of the coach storage requirements. It seems that they're going to need to put it into key. Sentences rather than sending out in small batches perhaps to you know local pharmacy. Or a cabaret miss. They thought they would. So what will happen is it will go to places like hospitals where they have that cold storage than going to put it into centers so the nightingale hospitals that have been built and also places like sports stayed the emc. Say think as well in those kind of facilities and instead of bat say you have in town eight also cathodes instead of the vaccine going in small batches of the cabins because of these requirements on the storage. Because it doesn't like they moved too much you will instead means academy ten dis on trips to those senses to the hospital in order for them to get inoculated. Have to do that twice at intervals of two weeks. And after the second vaccine injection seven days later they will then be a not some killer's this they will then not be able to for the effects that there's a slight effects of the vaccine it's being described as a bit like hanging over by some participants in the study. But you will then be guarded against covid nineteen but they used the is one for the most critical people. Nhs staff a care home staff the most elderly in society those most at risk and they need to use as much as possible as quickly as possible at because then what i think will happen is the much cheaper and easier to store and distribute ox sudanic vaccine which is the one that britain has invested. Most in will be the one that most of the population gets

Oxford's Vaccine

"Good vaccine news just keeps on coming on the backs of really promising news. From the pfizer. Biontech and madonna now oxford astrazeneca have announced the preliminary results from their phase three trials which showed overall seventy percent efficacy as reminder madonna and visor biotechs. Vaccines both currently show around ninety. Five percent efficacy but seventy percent is still very solid. That's about where dr fauci had been saying. He'd be very pleased to see. But i overall seventy percent. Because there's a weird quirk of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. That i as someone who is not an immunologist. Don't quite understand but hopefully we'll get more information on it in the coming days. Here's what i can tell you for now. The vaccine like the pfizer biontech one would need to be distributed in two doses however the first dose just needs to be half a dose for some reason. Doing a half dose on the first injection makes the whole vaccine overall more effective than if you got to hold doses quoting stat news. The preliminary results on the astrazeneca vaccine were based on a total one hundred. Thirty one covid nineteen cases in a study involving eleven thousand three hundred sixty three participants. The findings were perplexing to full doses of the vaccine appeared to be only sixty two percent effective at preventing disease while a half dose followed by a full dose was about ninety percent effective. That ladder analysis was conducted on a small subset of the study participants. Only two thousand seven hundred forty one a us based trial being supported by operation. Warp speed is testing the two full dose regimen. That may soon change. Astrazeneca plans to explore adding the half dose full dose regimen to its ongoing clinical trials in discussions with regulatory agencies spokesman told stat in an email and quotes and quoting from the new york times. The oxford scientists said they were still trying to understand why the vaccine was more effective at a smaller first dose. The first is supposed to prime the immune system while the second is supposed to boost its response while it seemed counter intuitive for a smaller i dose to be more effective. They said that strategy. More closely mimic. What happens with a real infection. End quotes peter openshaw professor of experimental medicine at imperial college. London explained to the associated. Press that vaccines. don't work. Like normal drugs where a higher dose produces more effects. The immune system is more complicated. Openshaw also notes that if indeed people do only need half a dose for one of the injections that's great news because it will be even cheaper to produce for more people. This was the vaccine candidate. That i was most excited about early on because it seemed like they kind of had a head start quoting the new york. Times astrazeneca's macos vaccine is designed to genetically altered in a dinner virus found in chimps. So that it harmlessly mimics the corona virus and provoke an immune response vaccine deploying. That technology has never won approval but the approach has been studied before notably in a small two thousand eighteen study of an experimental vaccine against the virus that causes middle east respiratory syndrome or mergers that viruses related to sars cov two the novel corona virus that causes covid nineteen so when covid nineteen emerged the team of scientists at oxford's jenner institute that had been leading the work on similar corona viruses. Had a head start once. The genetic code of sars cov two was published in early january. The oxford team sped to adapt their platform to the new corona virus and begin animal testing and quotes the other win in oxford. Astrazeneca's corner is unlike the pfizer. Biontech vaccine this latest one does not require any special refrigeration just standard storage and transportation temperatures of two eight degrees celsius or thirty six to forty six degrees fahrenheit and it can be stored for up to six months. The moderna vaccine requires cooler temperatures of negative four degrees fahrenheit but then can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures after thawing in can be stored as such for a month. The pfizer biontech vaccine. Meanwhile requires dry. Ice to store at negative seventy degrees celsius or negative ninety four degrees fahrenheit s- that makes the oxford astrazeneca vaccine much more appealing for areas without the infrastructure or funding to sustain the pfizer. Biotech cold chain. And with that in mind. Astrazeneca is applying for early approval wherever it can as well as an emergency useless stained from the world health organization so that it can be made available in low income countries they plan to produce three billion doses next year and are committed to providing it at cost around the world through july. Twenty twenty one. The vaccine costs around three or four. Us dollars significantly less than the others late stage. Trials are continuing in the us. Japan russia south africa kenya and latin america and further trials are planned for other european and asian countries. So definitely more good news but watch this space for more

History of the COVID vaccine

"The promise of a covid. Nineteen vaccine is immense. But don't underestimate the challenges ahead. Nine long years elapsed between the isolation of the measles virus in nineteen fifty. Four and the licensing of vaccine. The world waited for twenty years between early trials of polio vaccine and the first american license in nineteen fifty five marvel then at how the world's scientists are on course to produce a working vaccine against sars kobe to the virus that causes covid nineteen within a single year. And not just any vaccine. The data from a final stage trial unveil this week by pfizer and biontech to pharma companies suggests that vaccination cuts your chances of suffering symptoms by more than ninety percent. That is almost as good as for measles and better than the flu job with an efficacy of just forty to sixty percent. Suddenly a dark winter there is hope not surprisingly phases news on november ninth rouse the markets bulls investors dumped shares in florax peleton tech firms which have all benefited from the corona virus and instead switched into firms like disney carnival and international consolidated airline's group. Which will do well. When the sun shines again the oecd. A club of mainly rich countries reckons that global growth in twenty twenty. One with an early vaccine will be seven percent. Two percentage points higher than without there is indeed much to celebrate. Pfizer's results suggest that other vaccines were worked to over. Three hundred and twenty are in development. Several in advance trials most liked pfizer's focus on the spike protein with which sars covy to gains entry to cells. If one vaccine has used this strategy to stimulate immunity of us probably cantu pfizer's vaccine is also the first using a promising new technology many vaccines prime the immune system by introducing in fragments of viral protein. This one gets the body to make the viral protein itself by inserting genetic instructions contained. In a form of our anna. Because you can edit aren. Hey the vaccine can be tweaked should the spike protein mutate as it may have. Recently in ming this platform can be used with other viruses and diseases possibly including cancer on original focus so celebrate how far biology has come and how fruit fleet can manipulate biochemical machinery. For the good of humanity. There will be time later to worry about how that power might also be abused and celebrate the potency of sciences at global endeavor drawing on contributions from across the world. A small german firm founded by first generation. Turkish emigrants has successfully. Worked with an american multinational company headed by greek chief executive yet despite the good news too big question out about the characteristics of the vaccine and how fast it can be distributed. These are early results. Based on ninety four symptomatic cases of covid nineteen from among the forty four thousand volunteers. Further answers must wait until the trial has gathered more data. It is therefore not clear whether the vaccine stop severe cases or mild ones or whether it protects the elderly whose immune systems are weaker nor is it known whether inoculated people can still cause potentially fatal infections in those yet to receive jobs and it is too soon to be sure how long the beneficial effects will last clarity will take time in the next few weeks. The trial should be declared safe. Though further monitoring of the vaccine will be needed. The company's predict that immunity will last for at least a year. The ninety percent plus efficacy so high that this vaccine may offer at least some protection to all age groups while the world waits data it will have to grapple with distribution will be in short supply for most of next year. Although our any jobs may prove easier to make it scale than those based on proteins pfizer's requires two doses. The company has said that it will be able to produce up to fifty million doses in two thousand and twenty one point three billion next year. That sounds a lot but america alone has over. Twenty million first responders medical staff care homeworkers an active duty troops perhaps a fifth of the world's seven point eight billion people including two thirds of those over seventy risk. Severe covid nineteen. Nobody has ever tried to vaccinate an entire planet at once as the effort mounts. Ge's medical glass and stuff could run. Short worse visors shots need to be stored at temperatures of minus seventy degrees celsius or even colder far beyond the scope of your local chemist companies building an ultra cold chain but the logistics will still be hard. The vaccine comes in batches of at least nine. Hundred and seventy five doses. So you need to assemble that. Many people their first shot and the same crowd again. Twenty one days later for a booster. Nobody knows how many doses will be wasted so long as there is too little vaccine to go round. Priorities must be set by governments. A lot depends on them getting it right within countries and between them modeling suggests that if fifty rich countries were to administer two billion doses of vaccine that is eighty percent effective they would prevent a third of deaths globally if the vaccine was supplied according to rich and poor countries population. That share would almost double. The details will depend on the vaccine. Poor countries may find ultra cold chains. Too costly the domestic answer to these problems is national committees to allocate vaccine optimally. The global answer is kovacs. An initiative to encourage countries equal access to supplies ultimately though the solution will be continued work on more maxine some might survive in commercial. Refrigerators of those will work. Better on the elderly still others might confer longer protection require a single shot or stop infections as well as symptoms all those that work will help increase apply. Only when there is enough to go around. We'll anti vaccines become an obstacle early. Reports suggest the jap causes fevers and eggs which may also put some people off. The good news is that an efficacy of ninety percent makes vaccination more attractive. The next few months will be hard global recorded. Death rates of surged past their april peak. Governments will struggle with the logistics of axon nation. America is rich and it has world class medicine but it risks falling short because the virus is raging there and because the transition between administrations could lead to needless chaos and delays squandering lives. When a vaccine is at hand would be especially cruel. Science has done. Its bit to see off. the virus. Now comes the test society

What happens to all the other COVID-19 candidates when the first one is approved?

"Now we have staff writer John Cohen. He wrote a story this week about an interesting question what happens to all the other covid nineteen vaccine candidates when the first one is approved. Hi John. Hi. Sarah. How are you? I'm good. He could be let's be honest. We're both sick of the pandemic. Yeah. Absolutely. Let me leave my house that my child leave the house. That's all I want to normal. Yeah. Normal. Let's talk about vaccine candidates. How many are in studies now under study now and what does the trial landscape look like at this moment? Know they're forty two in human clinical trials according the WHO list? The World Health Organization doesn't update list that was as of October second in there about two hundred in development. Of, the forty two in clinical trials tanner in the last stage of efficacy trials, the phase three, we're going to be mostly talking about what's going on in the US those numbers reflect worldwide vaccine development that's global. The US has four efficacy studies underway right now, and these are all part of what they like to call warp speed all part of operation more speed. Yeah. Yeah and so they're going through trials going through all the same steps, but that could change once one of them gets. Approval, why would something changed about? You know what's going on with the other CO bids scenes? The concern is that the mediocre might be the enemy of the better or the best the way that we've set things up in the United States the food and Drug Administration has a mechanism called an emergency use authorization. It's received a lot of attention because of hydroxy chloroquine because of rim, Desa there, and because of convalescent plasma and because of diagnostic testing, all of those have used this pathway for. Approval and authorization essentially is short of a full approval and it says, Hey, were in an emergency we only minimal data that gives us an idea of this stuff working and then we'll let it be used widely. So why are we worried about the other possible covid nineteen vaccines? If for example, one gets a UA by November I the FDA has said in a document issued in June that the EU a could be issued for fifty percent efficacy. That's a pretty low standard to begin with. As. Soon, as you authorized the use of one vaccine, first of all, this is an ongoing study because they're going to use data for an e you a most likely from an interim analysis someone of axion efficacy trial is scheduled to take six months. An Independent Safety Monitoring Board looks at the data at certain pre scheduled time points in the case of these efficacy trials they look at. The data early based on what they call? It's are basically the end points of the study. The studies are primarily asking the question. Do they prevent symptomatic disease that the number one question they're asking? So that's an event. If somebody gets a symptomatic disease and these trials are scheduled to have one hundred and fifty events to reach their final conclusions, but they're going to take peaks at the data. At fifty events, a net one, hundred events roughly at fifty events a company. If it had strong evidence that the people in the vaccinated group as opposed to the Placebo group were doing better, they could seek you a based on fifty percent efficacy at that moment they ethically in a quandary because the people who are still in this trial, blindly a receiving either vaccine or placebo ethically you could. Argue you've gotTa Blind and tell the people who are receiving. Placebo. We've got a vaccine that looks good. Do you want to get it? So you've undermined that study from reaching it's real and points of one hundred fifty events What's more? Every other study underway has to let the participants know that the US has issued and ethically you have to give people the option of taking a vaccine. The FDA's blessing. People might walk out a trials who are in trials. If you were staging a new clinical trial, you may well have to compare your vaccine to the one that has received the authorization. Well, it's much easier to prove that something is better than nothing. But what if you have a vaccine that's fifty percent effective and that becomes the competitor not a placebo well. Then, this new vaccine let's say it has sixty two percent efficacy. You're comparing sixty two percent to fifty percent not fifty percent zero. It's really hard to see that small difference or even if they're equivalent, let's say they're both fifty percent. So you need a much larger study and it needs to go on for a longer period of time and it costs a lot more money we. Don't have. It's not likely that people involved in trials for other vaccines or even the people in the placebo arm of the one that does get approved would have access to the sack seen. That's a critical consideration. If supply doesn't meet demand, then we have an easy you were only giving outlets twenty million doses to the top priority people healthcare workers then for the people in other. Clinical trials they have no other option. Then the issue is not this great ethical dilemma, but remember were speeding things up with operation more speed in order to pump out three, hundred, million doses of vaccine from one company by as early as the end of January. So this problem, it's not here today because supply doesn't meet demand, but it sure could be here in late. January and. February march April who knows what we're going to have in terms of efficacy data and who knows what we're going to have in terms of trials in their enrollment. Remember we have a couple of trials that have been stopped because of side effects. When you put a trial on hold that means it's not going to reach its end point for even longer and that's happening right now with two of the warp speed vaccines. In your story, we don't want just one vaccine. There's some good reasons to continue to investigate and to look further afield even after one is approved, can you talk about some of those? For one thing we may need different vaccines for different populations. The elderly we know with influenza, they need a much higher dose because their immune systems don't work as well as they age we may need one that's tailored for pregnant women. Pregnant women are GonNA, tolerate a risk factor much much lower than everyone else. You might need a vaccine that simpler to deliver for some parts of the world that doesn't have a cold chain issue or you need to keep it at. MINUS SEVENTY DEGREES CENTIGRADE. You might need a vaccine that's cheaper for many countries even though it's maybe sixty two percent versus sixty, eight percent effective, it might be a better deal at the end of the day because more people can get it for the amount of money you have on top of all that we want a lot of vaccines because more vaccines means more supply we have an insurance policy of something goes wrong at a manufacturing plant. If a side effect crops up when it goes into wider use, we have this backup of other vaccines. So there are loads of reasons why we want a whole portfolio vaccines ultimately to prove safe effective. That's the. Case that you have to make to participants people who might be involved in trials. Do you think it's going to be effective? Do you think people are gonNA still volunteer to get a vaccine or not vaccine that hasn't been approved? You put your finger on a really important issue and that's who enrolls in a vaccine trial why it's not like you have cancer that's going to kill you and you're enrolling in a trial because you've exhausted all medicines and you're hoping beyond hope that this new treatment will work and Save Your Life. That's a completely different motivation to join a trial. Then a vaccine when you are healthy, you're joining this to prevent something from. Happening so ethically, you can argue that well, that person most of these people are doing it for altruistic reasons the really doing it to help other people and you can ethically approach people in a study and say, Hey, look this one vaccine got EU a based on the early data that it's fifty eight percent effective. We'd like to keep you in this trial and it's a blinded study and we promise at the end of the study is one of the bioethicists I interviewed said we promise at the end we're going to give you the better vaccine, but will you stick with this for a while so that we can figure out if the vaccine that isn't For us is worth pursuing going back to your cancer example. There are cases where a clinical trials is happening the people in the treatment group are doing so well that it's no longer ethical to continue to deny that treatment to the placebo arm. That's not what's happening here. It is a different equation, some ethicists. That, even in a vaccine study, a person has a right to know if they're a participant whether they're receiving a placebo vaccine if there is convincing and compelling evidence that the vaccines working but keep in mind too and this is something that I think a lot of people have a hard time getting their heads around wearing a mask and social distancing goes a long way toward protecting you from this virus maybe even more than fifty percent effective vaccine 'cause then you're walking around. With none of this protection or you're not taking it as seriously exactly and that's called behavioral inhibition. If a vaccine leads to behavioral discipline habituation and people dropped their guard, stop wearing masks stop social distancing they may be putting themselves at more risk even though they have a vaccine in their bodies

Some Dinosaurs Probably Nested in Arctic

"Those vicious predatory dinosaurs that tended to be fairly small as six to nine ten feet. Long snout to tail there. Certainly in the Jurassic. Park movies the things that terrorize people Anthony Fiorello a paleontologist at southern Methodist University in Dallas Texas for more than two decades. Now, Fiorello has been digging a dinosaur fossils, hundreds of miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska. So one of the fundamental questions about dinosaurs in Alaska. In the ancient Arctic is, did they live there all year round did they migrate? How did they get their a recent discovery sheds light on those questions this fossil that's the subject study is a baby dinosaur, the baby predatory dinosaur, and it is a baby. It's not just juvenile and given the size estimate of this thing. This probably was not far from where the nesting ground was. So this is the first physical proof. Alley some dinosaurs nested in the ancient Arctic some of the first Arctic dinosaur remains ever found were discovered back in the nineteen sixties in Svalbard, an archipelago north of mainland Norway. Since then researchers have theorized, the dinosaurs must have migrated to avoid deeply cold winters but Fiorello says this new discovery disproves that idea for you know the classic stereotype for dinosaurs is that had been. that they were living in sub tropical environments oftentimes, somewhat swampy if you look at various artwork over generations, that was quite often how these dinosaurs were reconstructed. In reality the climate north of Alaska's Brooks range seventy million years ago was similar to what we might see today in Portland, Oregon or Calgary Alberta. Certainly a place where. Things were cooler. Or who were capable of being cool at times but certainly warmer than the the Arctic today, the fossil find is a piece of jawbone with a tooth from Dromaeosaur Fiorello and colleagues unearthed it along the banks of the call. They'll river not too far from the Arctic Ocean. The bone is the first non dental evidence of that species in the far north the researchers report their discovery in the journal plus one. Of course questions remain. How did they do what they did because even with the warmer temperatures at the latitude, the thieves dinosaurs were living, which is at least seventy degrees north if not even farther nor. Do they endure long periods of light and dark, and that's where the research will go next for now Fiorello says the new discovery proves that these giant reptiles were well adapted to the highly seasonal environments of the late Cretaceous that we still experience today in the Arctic.

How Does Uranus Work?

"Scientists have coined an appropriate term for the large chilly bodies like Uranus ice giants. Neptune falls into the same category. But you're in. This is quite an odd duck compared to its neighboring planet. For starters you're a spins on an extreme tilt resulting in some truly wild seasons around the polls even the ice giants name is a bit peculiar and not just because it makes school kids chuckle. Okay let's not kid ourselves. You're never too old to enjoy good year in joke. Headline Writers certainly don't thinks so if article titles like NASA wants to probe urinate in search of gas and Uranus. Smells like farts are any indication. These jokes if you're not getting them hinge on the spelling of Uranus you are an US allowing for an english-speaking mispronunciation as your anus meaning rectum that where classy puns. Aside you're in his represents a break with nomenclature old tradition mercury Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn and Neptune all took their names from Roman gods or deities however uranus uniquely was named after a Greek God in the religion of Ancient Greece. You're an was revered as the primordial God of the sky he had a son named Cronos and a perhaps more famous grandson notice Zeus. Those two figures were later conflated with two Roman Deities Saturn and Jupiter though the planet Uranus was discovered by Stromer William Herschel March thirteenth of seventeen eighty one. He didn't give it the name we use today. A loyal Britain Herschel wanted to call this far away. World Georgie 'EM CD's or Georgia Star. In honor of King George the third but by nature. That name was politically charged to avoid. Alienating non-british Stargazers German astronomer Johann Alert Buddha suggested calling the planet uranus in seventeen eighty three eventually his alternative Monica one out but back to that axial tilt a planets rotate around an axis. Which is the imaginary line connecting their northern and southern polls and they simultaneously orbit on an imaginary plane around the Sun now Earth has an axial tilt of twenty three point five degrees. This means there's a twenty three point five degree angle between Earth's axis and its plane of orbit around the Sun without the tilt our home world wouldn't have seasons or possibly life. Uranus is skewed to but to a much greater extent in relation to its orbital plane. The ice giants access has been tilted at a chopping ninety seven point seven degree angle next to Saturn and Neptune. Urine looks like it's lying on its side so what we are orientation. A computer simulation published two thousand eighteen suggests your was hit by a huge Proto Planet. Around four billion years ago then again there may have been multiple impacts or a long gone circum. Planetary Disk could have played a role however it happened. The tilt subjects both polls too long dark winters long. Bright Summer's on Uranus was orbit around the Sun or one year lasts for roughly eighty four earth years. Each poll is aimed almost directly at the Sun for about twenty one St Earth years during its summer season. Meanwhile the other pole faces the opposite direction. Enduring Alliance Dark Winter. Despite the extreme tilt urine is warmer at the equator than it is either poll. Nobody knows why. And this isn't the planets only mystery. Jupiter Saturn and Neptune already radiate more than twice as much heat as they received from the Sun. Yet you're innocence. Heat output is significantly lower. This disparity has long baffled planetary scientists as we already mentioned. You're innocent. Neptune are both ice giants planets of this sort have rocky cores covered by mantles rich. An icy half frozen slush of ammonia methane and water next up there's the atmosphere whose outer level is full of hydrogen helium and even more methane researchers found that urinalysis atmospheric clouds contain hydrogen sulfide. A compound responsible for the rotten egg stench. We all know in hate so yes. You're in literally stinks to the densest part of its atmospheric sees brutal temperatures of negative two hundred forty three to negative three hundred seventy degrees Fahrenheit. That's negative one fifty three to negative to eighteen degrees Celsius. That's hardly a welcoming environment for any future astronauts but at least the color scheme would be familiar. Earth isn't the only blue planet in the solar system. Methane absorbs red light giving Uranus and Neptune deep blue complexions of the two worlds. You're in a slightly greener since nineteen seventy seven. We've known that Ernest has a ring system around its equator to date. Astronomers have counted thirteen rings encircling the planet the structures are relatively dim and lack the fine particles observed and other rings systems like Saturn's each one is composed of debris chunks that are golf ball sized at minimum for some reason smaller material gets exiled and space between these rings in also has twenty seven known moons twenty five of which renamed after Shakespeare characters like affiliate Juliet. There's Dimona puck and Miranda who's namesake appears in the tempest geologically complex. Miranda contains the single policy cliff known to humankind dubbed Verona repays. It has an estimated height of twelve point four miles. That's twenty kilometers. Meaning that if you happened to be walking along its peak and you happened to fall off. You would plummet for twelve minutes straight before hitting the ground. Others satellites of note include sicker acts and Caliban while most of your Ennis's moons spin in the same direction as the planet does these to revolve the other way. Scientists think they were once independent objects that the ice giants gravity in snared by the way how ban is another tempest character and sicker. Iraq's was said to be his mother from it's weird rings. It's puzzling climate. You're Ennis's found plenty of ways surprises. Only time will tell what further mysteries the planet holds until then although it's very dim your is visible to the naked eye on some dark clear nights if you have sharp vision if not so much. It's easily visible with noculars or a telescope.

Maj. John Rain Waters: F16 Deployed & Demo Pilot, USAF Instructor, and 777 Pilot

"Give us a little bit of background just like a quick elevator. Pitch on John. What what have you been known for? What are you doing now? Yeah so I started flying in high school. Got The bug hooked and I wanted to go sir. By countries so best of both worlds is able to go fly in the Air Force has been twelve years flying air force mix from being a t six instructor pilot flying that sixteen and eventually the being. F16 DEMO pilot edges recently transitioned into airlines flying. A triple seven right now. Right on very cool. So let's start at the beginning then so you started flying in highschool tells about where you got the bug and how that love for aviation started. I Group A community. That was just full of aviation a lot of Delta pilots. Round where I live in all our ex air force next navy guys and my neighbor actually took me flying in a piper cub but a day it was like seventy degrees as absolutely beautiful door open when cruising around. I think that was the first Hook I had put in me for aviation. My Dad was a big influence. He wasn't a pilot but he saw it as a great career. Opportunity to kind of push me in that direction and so I was fortunate to have someone who wanted to teach of a friend of mine. Fly His son. He wants you to send out a fly but he wanted to teach them to fly with someone so I was fortunate to be able to be that other person and me and my friend were taught how to fly. My I fly was on September tenth. Two thousand one. So the next day I was is a big moment for so many across the world little in America so when September eleventh happened that really solidified my desire to WanNa go serve and if I go serve while flying two birds with one stone and was fortunate. That's where I put all my effort in high school was to get an ROTC scholarship. Go in and get a pilot slot and then flying air force now. That's amazing I think for me. No connection to nine eleven. I think I took my first flight less than a year after that. So yeah September Eleventh. Two thousand two so wild and crazy now coming up with me. It's almost two decades ago right so there's so many people that you know in op. See Our age no it lifted everyone holderness no it and lived it but you know being the demo pilot going out and talking to kids. Now there's just we now have the first generation of Americans serving in the military who were born after September eleventh. Yeah so is just. It's such a such a big event moment in history for so many people and it's crazy to hear the different stories and then you go dig up my logbook and take a picture of an shared or something because it is kind of wild. I remember another friend of mine that has a similar store to you is working the financial sector nine eleven happened and then he became. He became an air force pilot as well. He ended up in the rapture. But you know he. He felt the call as well so Can you walk us through? What the process for you as like say in high school to get to that point where you're qualifying to be a fighter pilot. I don't know if that's like an acceptable her. But you're obviously shooting for something there. So what's that process like to actually get in a position to be able to do that so for me? I think most people the average is a very long process. They're opposites exceptions to someone who monitoring have their degree in apply saucer training school which is a shorter condensed program and they go off and become a pilot but on average most people commission become officers in the Air Force which you had to offer to be a pilot most people commission through the Air Force Academy which is a four year college military school out in Colorado Springs or through ROTC which is at most universities across the nation. So I did ROTC Georgia Tech. But you start queuing yourself up in high school because you have to be competitive in order to get into. Rotc or get into Air Force Academy so mine started really like eighth ninth grade looking to see whether requirements were in order to get a ROTC scholarship or get into the Air Force Academy which is good. Gpa's good sat be well rounded so be involved in sports or working but they also want to see in those processes of work or your club or sports that over the course of three or four years you go from. Yeah the guy who just joined the group to being the club president or being the team captain. Because they're looking for leadership ability so it really cute up early on and it was a long path just to get ROTC and get into college and then once you get into ROTC or college Air Force Academy. The process kind of starts all over again. Because you're competing with everyone who's shown up at the end of school your junior year. That's really when most people find out what they're going to do in the Air Force. Three years to develop as a leader develop as an officer. Show that you had that potential to serve at a higher level and function at a higher level and then you apply for pilot slot or navigator slaughter intelligence officer. Whatever might be but you've been racked and stacked against your peers. There's a number one. There's a number two. There's a number ten and they all comes down to the needs of the air force so if we need ten pilots great news for that group of ten people but if there's only need to pilots than the top two people get that that's a very broad brush gail but in the end it's a really long process typically in order to get to that point and it's a big investment to write without being guaranteed that you're actually. GonNa get that slot you're putting in years and years of work before you ever know that you're GonNa get pilot

Gabrielle Palmas: Surviving a Midair Collision

"Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. You were in an interesting situation and you and I were Were chatting about it not too many people have survived a mid air you did. Can you tell us all about that absolutely so thankfully not many three hundred? Our pilots have experienced talking to the FAA and the NTSB but In October twenty twelve. I found myself in that exact situation to give some background. I fly out of Phoenix and a few different airports here where we have some of the best flying weather in the United States and in the world so with that comes a whole bunch of traffic air traffic. We have eight general aviation airports within thirty nautical miles of each other. And there's a lot of international students here with training academies and things tend to get busy when it's a beautiful day outside a very busy area. You've got all the airport you mentioned you. Of course got Phoenix International. And just outside of that. You've got Luke Air Force Base which is a training base for the Air Force. So it is a busy area. Everybody trying to take advantage of that beautiful Arizona weather and along with that. We have very limited approaches that we can do when it comes to training. So there's only one I alas in the area that were really allowed to navigate by and the only other two are at Phoenix Sky Harbor and over it Gateway Airport so along with that we have a lot of intense training traffic heading down south to this one particular airport. Kasa grind and their sister when were transitioning through these areas on top of that we have practice areas so it gets to be a little crazy when it comes to all of these training academy airplanes in one spot. So there I was. I was up on a training flight with my chief pilot on a stage. Check to progress to my next step of training in my instrument and as we were flying and transitioning out of the practice area and heading toward the airport for practice approach. We were in that scary spot where you're not talking to either frequency yet. You're in the process of changing your in the process of getting yourself situated for an approach. So there's a lot happening. I was under the hood at the time and my chief pilot reached out for the controls and turned to the aircraft and dove down as fast as he could and we ended up hitting something and my initial thought was. Maybe we hit an airplane. But I'm thinking birds. Birds are probably going to be the best scenario here right birds. It's fine just birds and he told me calmly. I need you to take your hood off and I need you to look around to see if you see them so there was with the thought process of. Oh my gosh. We hit another airplane with people inside of it. Wow that's another level of intensity there you're under the hood you feel an impact. The instructor says take your hood off and now you take the hood off. You're just trying to get total laissez on on now having vision. And where are you? And I can't imagine that it was a fear of looking out to the right side. I can tell you that. Why is that where you felt the thump? Come from yes okay. The impact was from the right side of the wing. We lost three feet of our wing and a Piper Warrior and had no aileron control whatsoever after that. So not only. Were we trying to see if the other party survived? We were also trying to figure out. What do we do now? Do we get this aircraft on the ground as soon as possible. Yes okay do we. Head straight toward the airport. Because at that point we were aligned directly toward the Chandler airport where we're based or do we make smaller turns to head toward an abandoned airstrip. That's on reservation. Land Not really monitored by anybody but also much closer to us and less traffic possibilities because we were also thinking okay. It's just the wing but it could also be the landing gear. It could be the engine stopping at any moment. We don't know what else has been impacted. About what altitude were you guys in terms of AG L? When the collision occurred at about four thousand feet. Okay and it's a an awkward altitude to be at because you're in the process of shooting practice approach and not yet on with approach. But your right at that altitude Should you be at the five hundreds or should you be at the thousands? What are we doing here? So that was the most difficult struggle for us to is that. It's a transition point where you're descending from one to another but with us. We had just leveled off to start the approach and start talking to traffic control so I remember a styling in. Instead of contacting approach. We contacted our local tower because we figured that the local tower might have these guys up on their radar and they have a better internal contact to get down to our flight. School emergency services in the local area Chandler versus talking to Phoenix approach which was much further away. So all of these split-second decisions were being made. We didn't want to fly over houses. Were dealing with an airstrip in the middle of nowhere versus airports but the airstrip is closer. And how do we do this? We manipulate the airplane. Just using rudder so I can tell you I am beyond grateful. I wouldn't be here today. If my chief pilot had not been the one in the airplane with me because this man flies great lakes he flies pits he flies aerobatic and knows exactly the limitations of an aircraft especially in a state like this so immediately of course he was on the controls and once we landed We couldn't use any flaps obviously coming in because the Aileron had been jammed so much into the flap system and we just took every precaution. You're sitting there thinking about going back to the basics when something like this happens. You're cracking the door open. Just like you're taught in training your hands on the fuel selector valve to make sure that you're shutting that off as soon as you touch down you just go into that mode that we all practice for over and over again in emergency training as student pilots. All the way up to professionals know at any point. Did you ever see the other airplane? We never did air. Traffic control finally told us about a minute before we land that they were able to see them squawking seventy seven hundred so at least we knew at that point that they were alive before we landed. Okay but you hear the collision you never do. See Them. You're focused on flying your own airplane. The instructors got control of the airplane. Did you guys do a controllability check talks about now? You've got this airplane. You make the decision to go into Keila River Memorial. I think you mentioned on on the reservation. Was it relatively close to you. Where you just a few miles away from the airport. At that time we were so we were just a few miles to southeast of the airport. So perfectly lined up with the chandler that we were checking back to so. It took us about fifty to ninety degree turn. I can't remember the exact amount in order to get lined up with the runways that are over at. He'll river for us. During that time it was a matter of okay. Let's take a look. See what we can actually do. The airplane okay. The rudders are fine. Ailerons can't do it okay. What about flap controls? Nope totally jammed. Can I ask you? Did you know that were ineffective? Because you tried to use them in. Couldn't or did you just look out at them and decide? We're not even going to try that. Nope we tried to move the yoke around and nothing was working. You could move the from full left to right and nothing was working. Got It so no aileron control but you do have good pitch control and good rudder control of course The engine still operating normally correct. Okay and you're at four thousand feet above the he'll river memorial. So you looking at the map here you do. What looks like probably a left hand. Turn and begin. Descending towards the river memorial is that right correct it was get on the ground as fast as you can power idle since we have zero flaps worse case scenario if we're high weaken slip it and just pray at this point though we get this thing on the ground safe and you have to do much turning or you rudder over in the direction of he'll river and you were pretty much set up on a final approach there or how did you guys do that. We were essentially on a long final at this point. Enough time to get stabilized and pay attention to how we were going to muscle this onto the ground. And how did you do that? Did you fly a pretty fast final because you were? I mean who knows what your real stall speed is now with three fear wing missing out on the right side right. How'd you handle the approach speed somewhat? I remember I remember My chief keeping it pretty straightforward and S. Just saying. You know. It doesn't matter how long it takes us to get stopped. We're going to aim toward the beginning of the runway. It's a relatively long runway because this airport at one point was used for aerial firefighting. So they still have some DC. Six's that are. They're just kind of abandoned so we knew we had a lot more room to work with and no houses on either end unlike the Chandler airport so we figured we just need to get close to the ground. We'll get it on the ground and then however long it takes us to get stopped and situated. We'll figure that out as we go. Yeah so it sounds like you keep your speed up. You came down and realize you had a long runway. The winds can get pretty strong out there in Arizona were the wind factor at all. Thankfully not because this was October so October is some of our most mild weather in Arizona. It's the transition period between when we get all of those storms coming in. The monsoon season has wrapped up for the most part and then October becomes that seventy degree weather until we reach March. Beautiful Time of year to fly out there and so That was a lucky break for you that it happened there when you're not worried about the heat or the wind or density altitude too much so you guys came down final. Kept your air speed up. You come over the runway and then just from there as normal as he could make it around out of flare and touchdown correct yet as normal as we could make it and as soon as we got on the ground immediately. Shut everything down. Fuel selector valve turned off and get out of the airplane as fast as we can just in case and I can't tell you how fast we both dropped to the ground just to make sure that both of us were okay that you know okay. We're on the ground. It's fine now. We can start thinking about everything that comes along with this.

What's next for Solar Orbiter after its historic launch to the sun

"Hey brain stuff lauren. Boban here a newly launched spacecraft promises to broaden our understanding of the sun called solar orbiter or the Solo for short it left Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Central Florida on Sunday February. Ninth at three PM. The new probes part of an international collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency or ESA both parties contributed to its arsenal of scientific instruments. Some of these gadgets will remotely image the Sun It's atmosphere and the materials it spews forth others are built to keep tabs on the spacecraft's immediate surroundings during the wee hours of February tenth. Two Thousand Twenty European Space Operation Center in Darmstadt Germany got a signal confirming the orbiter's on board solar panels were functioning correctly so begins a seven year plan mission the orbiter is supposed to take to paraphrase. Robert Frost the route less traveled. You see all the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun on the same General Plane. Give or take a few degrees called the ecliptic plane. It's like a giant invisible disk a one that very nearly lines up with Sun's equator most of our space fearing devices are gravitationally confined to this plane but the so low is meant to escape it by exploiting the gravity of Earth and Venus the probe will orbit the sun on a unique and tilted pathway. This unique trajectory will give the solo twenty two close approaches to the Sun as close as twenty six million miles or thirty five million kilometers as well as bringing it within the orbit of Mercury to study the sun's influence on space. It will also give the solo the chance to do something no craft has ever done before take pictures of the solar polls looking down from above or up from below just like Earth. The Sun has a north and South Pole in two thousand eighteen the ESA used data from the probe to satellite trying to determine what the northern pole looks like. But probe to couldn't photograph this region directly. If all goes according to plan the solo will do just that. It's I close pass by. The Sun will be twenty twenty at about a third the distance from the Sun to Earth. And that's just the beginning. Another mission involves SOLO PARTNERING UP WITH BE Parker Solar probe launched in two thousand eighteen. This space craft is able to fly much closer to the sun and the solo ever will comparing the feedback from both probes. Ought to tell us. A great deal about the mysterious phenomenon called solar wind which are streams of charged particles. Any color pictures that the solo gives us should provide relevant insights to the sun's polar probably have a big effect on its atmosphere as a whole along with the winds unleashes. The Solos unique travel plans will put it in contact with intense heat and extreme cold. The new probe is going to revolve around the Sun. Very long very narrow oval shaped orbit as it nears the Star. Things will get rather toasty. And that's why designers fitted solar orbiter with reflective heat shield coated in titanium foil according to NASA this shield stand temperatures as high as nine hundred seventy degrees Fahrenheit or five hundred and twenty degrees Celsius.

Parking Lot Landing With Jeff King

There I Was...

Parking Lot Landing With Jeff King

"This was in two thousand are at that point in time. I would my Turkey six at that point. I had about four hundred dollars on that particular aircraft and I used it for business and personal travel so at that point it was in September. I was during the visit. My sister and we flew from Holland to troy. Michigan and troy is a kind of an urban airport little bit north of Detroit Michigan and it was an uneventful flight. We you know the Cheer King. Six has four fuel tanks. We burn down the first two fuel tanks and landed in the left hip tank. No issues there. We rode my bike to my sisters and then came back and decided to go back home. We were GONNA stop at Hillsdale to get fuel. That's another airport that I was based out of at that point in time. And when you say we jeff who was in the airplane with you oh. I'm sorry I'm a HAM radio operator. We use that word we sometimes so no. I okay got it. You were so low and flying over to see your sister who I know you shared with us was sick. And you're flying over to visit her and then your plan was to visit her for a bit and then turn around and depart for home. That same evening is that right. That's correct come home that evening. So we wrote our bike back to the airport and Dinner run up and everything seemed fine. I had been doing short field takeoffs to says as a habit even though this was not really a short field and that was about a thousand pounds under gross so we didn't take off the twenty degrees flaps What up pretty fast. We pitched over from V. Ecstasy Y and immediately after that with the answer starts to stumble and then we lost power. It was of course it was nighttime. At that point we were on the eastbound runway runway nine and two seven at that particular report and started a turn it back to the field and then all of a sudden Stalin came on. And we're at roughly three hundred feet at that point. In time at that point you would your engine fails or I head engine stumble with Cherokee six four take aircraft and if you're going to get any kind of range out of it you would run out of fuel at altitude and the engine would star. Bill. Would I talk about that? You're eight ten thousand feet up. Always have something picked out ahead of time so your your heart would always flutter. I Dunno if anyone's ever not changed a tank purpose or not in for your heart flutters. Well this time. It wasn't on purpose this time. I wasn't ten thousand feet. This time. I was up three hundred feet. So you got that moment where you. Oh my gosh. A couple seconds elapses. It seems like a couple of minutes. So short field takeoffs techniques who knows is relatively high you're climbing out at Vx SPEED. You're just beginning to push over to capture V. Y. and your engine stumbles and then very shortly thereafter. You see the stall light right so at the airport when Stalin came on thankfully might training. At least I feel like my training kicked in at that point. My instructor be if our instructor. Jason Dyson from years past always messed around with me. I guess this lack of a better where we would fail the engine on me and he'd always tell me if you lose your engine on takeoff. The Insurance Company owns the airplane. What he meant by that was that you worry about yourself. You don't worry about your airplane. You worry about yourself so when that stall I came on I just pushed the forward. I didn't see what was outside. I didn't I didn't even look outside of this. Pushing forward was at a fairly aggressive. Push Jeff relatively hard or Takasu. Assume that that push. Yeah you have to understand. This whole series of events probably was fifteen to twenty seconds for the time I rotated to the time the engine baby ten fifteen seconds so there. There was a lot going on in a very short period of time so I would say the push was relatively hardware pushed it forward. Yeah where I was pitching over the top. I dropped flaps out as well. I took a twenty degrees. I dropped in ten when I went to wide and then I immediately pulled some flaps in his well once I was pitched down because I knew there was there was not a lot of space in front of me and I was correct. There wasn't so I'm I'm pitch down. I'm seeing portion of the Walmart parking lot in front of me and then a feel beyond their. I just pushed it down. I think one of the witnesses said he went into a dive and I did because I did not have a lot a lot of space to land the point. Jeff how is the visibility here? So you said you're up about three hundred feet when it stumbles. You're pushing over so now you can see over the knows. I mean you only had a couple seconds to make a decision here on where to go was visibility. An issue for you at all. Visibility was on an issue. The only thing with this particular field was I. My in-laws lived in the area. My sister lived in the area side using air for quite a bit so I knew there wasn't a lot a lot of choices to go if she had a problem. Yeah that looking at where you were in. That era means basically the Detroit Metro area. It's pretty crowded around that airport for sure. It's a industrial a mixed industrial commercial retail area. Yeah any Cherokee. Six has a relatively long nose. So when you're pissed up like that in a short field takeoff you pitch over visibility over the nose for at least a little bit can be an issue but you pitch over to start capturing glider really. You weren't interested in capturing a glide you're religious interested in preventing the stall at that point at that point it was just it was just muscle memory. I guess for lack of a better word. Where then you're training kicks in and you're doing things you're supposed to be doing and not thinking about it. So I I just I saw that stall icon and I thought about departure stalls. I mean again. It was such a limited period of time. I remember on the way down. The properties rotating slowly probably from the wind are not sure that the NTSB thought possibly the engine starting to catch again. And there's always coming down but at that point I stopped doing any of the checks doing and I just committed to the landing in trying to retain control the aircraft and was the Walmart parking lot straight ahead. Did you have to make a slight turn to get there? Where was it in relation to the attitude of your airplane while it was laughed and I started to do a turn when the ancient stumbled to try to come back to the field so call them turn right when that style came on. I I gave up. I know I've got to save myself fly. The airplane fly the airplane. Fly that Europe Lane. What I saw my windshield again was pretty surreal. I saw a white van. There was a very narrow strip of the parking lot that was free of cars. I saw white van ahead of me. Turning the left it turned out it was a white car but from that altitude looked like a white van and I just basically all my gosh. I hope he turns. I hope he turns. Because that's the only option. I have a whole bunch of parked cars and to the right of me. It was dark. I really couldn't see to the right of me. I had to go where I could see. Thankfully he turned. It probably wouldn't have been an issue for him anyway. She was so far away. But still if you saw the photographs that I sent there was like an alley behind a row of buildings and I was kind of aiming for the alley. That alley was behind a strip mall behind. The store is a Walmart. I was passing over. Then there was a parking lot. Anyth- me then a strip mall that had a alley behind it. I was trying to turn to edge between there and the feel Birla's again that turn was roughly from the time your engine sputtered. You start turning you. Were turning back with a sputtering engine then Pretty Soon. You realize the engines had quit. You're about to stall you push over and so that was About a ninety degree. Turn away from runway heading to head towards this parking lot. Is that about right arm? Say about sixty to seventy degrees but yeah right okay so laughing more or less north okay and you really have limited options. You pushed down to prevent the stall you seeing the only real open spaces parking lot. So you're pushing to keep flying airspeed into get into this parking lot. Did you have any ability as you came down for lateral control to miss? You know lighting or cars or anything like that or you pretty much really minimally guiding the airplane at this point I had enough control to put a heart slip in also to try to get down Got It okay. Yeah you can see the parking lot for quite well but as far as being able to see what's around you you really couldn't like I hook theon right main landing gear on a shopping cart corral when I was flaring and I didn't even see that yeah. I saw that in the video. You sent by the way for our listeners. We'll have the pictures that Jefferson and the short video clip from the parking lot that shows a portion of a crash up on our website. So That is interesting so you turn it. You see the parking lot but you're too high so now you're into a pretty good slip to try to lose that altitude to get down to the parking lot and then you come in and take it from there so I'm pushing down hard starting to flare and I didn't see the shopping cart crowd but it hooked my right main as I said. Toilet the right main often it went shopping. Carts went flying in the air. I guess the at this point it starts to become I mean the whole thing was surreal but then it becomes extremely surreal at this point. I guess the first impression layer craft landed pretty hard Cherki sixes glide like a brick and of course I lost my right man. I didn't know it but I lost my right main. Sorry hit down pretty hard. I was a little bit stunned for a moment. When I hit the ground then became really surreal. Like I said I imagine yourself on the expressway. Drive your card about maybe seventy miles an hour and you go through a bunch of shopping carts. I mean they're flying up all around the airplane That was pretty bizarre. Then I'm sliding across the parking lot in this aircraft you know. I don't have any control. I mean there's no steering control all I mean I don't my right man I I. I was hoping to go between the Strip mall and the right side of the parking lot but the plane started to go to the right because there was no right it was dragging thankfully to the right was there was nothing to the right other than the embankment. Another parking lot about a five foot drop roughly so I'm sliding along okay. I think I'm going to live at this point. I'm shook it up but you know all my body parts are attached the cabins and tech which I got to say about Piper Cabin was was stayed intact through the whole accident so all of a sudden I'd see this bright white lights on my right side I go by. What is this all about? You know that lasted for about a second. And I'll get back to the moment. And then I shout over the parking lot over the embankment which is about a five foot drop that was on their big bump and then finally came to stop at the edge of the second part right the field or back to that white light as they say. I'm not really a religious person but apparently that was the tip tank getting sheared off on the The curb of the of the first part is that went over the embankment the Cherokee six has a fiberglass tank on it so it totally open it I at seventeen gallons in the right tank and totally open the tank up before an accident. And there's a number of things you're supposed to. Todd opened the door up. Turn the electrical off well. I didn't turn electoral off. I had incandescent lightbulb on the right tip. But as soon as the tip take opened up and of course Saddam flight broken immediately caused a fireball. Well thankfully the fireball and the gasoline got left behind and I kept going so I I come to a stop I look out my right window and the right. There's a small fire in the right wing. I didn't know I'd lost all my fuel. It was what was left so I- scramble out of the airplane I literally You can see one of the pictures where the right. Meanwhile sitting next to the right wing I literally had to dodge the right. The right wheels bouncing across the parking lot heady get the airplane. I had to either dodge it when I got on the airplane. As you're playing was a small fire the right wing. I didn't know the fuel situation there was you know. And of course I saw a huge fire behind me. I just got away from the airplane at that point so you survived the crash. You step out dodge. The right landing gear still bouncing down the pavement towards you and then what was your next action from there you're standing there looking at this Wreck of an airplane and thankful that you survived it. Thankful that the airplane protected you and then would you do jeff. Well at that point I ran up the embankment back onto the main Walmart. Parking Lot and there was a few people there. I I guess one of them did you. They asked me if the pilots okay and I said well I was the pilot. I'm okay everything's trying to register at that point and I asked to call nine one one. They already had called nine one one and we just waited for the police to get there and so forth. What an interesting deal. That happens so quickly. From your estimation from the time you release breaks till I don't know maybe thirty seconds forty five seconds later you're standing up on that embankment looking at your

Ferns with Mobee Weinstein

"Moby so good to have you and think of some of the fun times we've had before. Hi How are you. I'm well thank you and you good good so many so many plants I associate with you. It's funny from classes and from interviews and so forth so Anyway the new book Called the complete book of Ferns and it is from their history. Istrian sort of biology and care varieties for both indoors and out but this being winter I thought we sort of do indoor focus segment so but I sort of. Let's let's start with a definition. What do I have to do to be a fern? What's fern well? So ferns are plants. Of course. Could you got that answer right right. Good right But most people would think that if something is delegating Lacey they think. Oh that's a fern for for example. ASPARAGUS fern not furnished all right And actually in asparagus but what by definition of fern is is a plant that is vascular in other words it has a system. It's kind of like our veins and arteries in has a pumping humping system through Lance They also have leaves but in particular week. All these leaves mega fills and technical term. And it really really just means that they have Branching veins and it allows them to get much larger having a branch vein system and then they reproduce he produced by sport not by sea night. So that's what makes a fern affirm and it really has nothing to do with how it looks to who US superficially quite different. I mean in the book that was one of the most fun kind of looking through the glossary of the indoor and then the outdoor Varieties that hugh recommend. I mean the diversity is quite startling. Really exact yeah. Yeah most people think of them as very delicate lacy and always always in kind of moist tropical woods or even temperate. You know forest but most people don't realize they can be very large or very led led the real or completely on dissect it or undivided undivided and strap shape. And they can grow and desserts and they can grow in water and people. Just don't realize how diverse I they are I. It's funny. They say water because one fern that I grow every year I actually order it. Mail order to put on the top of my to you. Ground water gardens to kind of shade the water and keep You Know Green. Algae from growing you know rushing algae from forming it's over it's deprive the light of water the the water of light and one or the other movie. I'm not sure and and it's just so beautiful. I say as Zola. Jason La La La La and I just love it in its its velvety and it's it's sort of sometimes picks up a reddish cast at certain times of year and certain amounts of. Yeah and it's just beautiful. It's like a velvet carpet or something on the surface of the water. It's a fern fern and most people who would never look at that and think they're looking at a fern even if you look at it close up you still wouldn't think it's a firm but what it is and it's rather small but it just divides and grows so rapidly that it can actually smother water surfaces so in tropical areas. It's considered quite aggressive. But they've used it well. People learned a long time ago that it helped rice grow we. We now know that it's because it has a special symbiotic relationship. When I first learned it? They said it was a blue green algae. Now it's classified as a cyanobacteria but it's the same organism and it fixes nitrogen so it really helps the yield of the rice crops So it's actually a very important important plant for some very important food production and it's a little fern. Yeah Yeah it's usually beautiful in like a dish garden even you know. Yeah just a little bowl of water with some Zola floating in it mosquito fern because just as you were saying you might use it to block the sun out of the water to reduce use algae from growing because it smothers the surface. It can kind of make it more difficult for mosquitoes to breed in the water right sitting water. So yeah yeah so so ferns for desserts firms for water for lots of different habitats including putting our houses. So so they're not one-size-fits-all and of course our indoor environments aren't sort of homogeneous either you know not not places inside the house light exposure or temperature whatever and and no two houses so I don't know how. How could we kind of do this? Do we talk about the plants by the types of exposure in conditions. They like how how do you. How do you want to introduce some of your favorites or some that? You want to recommend that we give a look too well Yeah there's there isn't one way you that could only be done but I like to and this also goes for outdoors anytime any time you want to grow a plant but indoors it can often be much more challenging. I like to I look at your setting to see what you Have because it's human nature to go and buy a plant because you like it and then you come home and find out if no place for it or you don't have any right conditions for it. We all do it. We do it again and again and again but If you can afford that you'll have much better luck. So you look and you say okay. I have an east facing window you could grow almost any indoor fern from the light needs Then you have to look at your temperature. How warm how cool wool most indoors or not freezing right or where people are living but some people do definitely turn their heat down or have rooms or sections of of their homes which a cooler and that could actually be helpful But mostly we'd say there are at least sixty but seventy sixty eighty five seventy degrees At least in wintertime and in summertime. If you don't have air conditioning it's much more My Parliament can get up to ninety into your more in hot summer days when the AC is off right right and I have mud To my dreams of little mushrooms off the House and some people that might have a sunroom of a porch. That's in closed. And maybe they don't go out there and sit all day in the winter but it is still an environment that might suit some types of plants plants and not others and so you really have to evaluate each spot so east window is a good one. What about some of the not the brighter light windows? Well so east would be in my opinion kind of our second lightest north is lowest okay and Some people will say you can grow many friends in north light. I actually have eastern South but myself is not really usable so most my plants in my apartment are east facing and that that is working beautifully for a lot of these of course I wouldn't grow some other plants that need a lot of sun to bloom it's Cetera but all the plants I have can take the east light fabulously obviously and I went to rover limes and things like that in you know in the east light so that's pretty good. West can be okay for a lot of the ferns but especially leeann summer. It can get a little too hot so you just have to be careful and south is the same thing. South is the most light the strongest light But again in the summer could be way too strong way too hot for most of the FERNS. So you'd either back them away from the window or have a sheer curtain or something or You could move them to to the self exposure in the wintertime to get more light if you felt you know that worked for you

"Did not reach seventy degrees in February for the first time in a hundred and thirty two years. Yeah. That is crazy. That is crazy. I saw that too. That is just crazy at it. Did you know we had a couple of warm days, but not enough to produce anything ever hit seventy well because there was so much preaching from Jerry Brown that drought and heat for the new normal. And as soon as he leaves office, we get hit with one of the coldest February's ever. They scrapped the plans to do to to put in those reservoirs. A good idea. That's what fries me is like they're making policy decisions based on their theories. And then the theories end up completely wrong, and we have no reservoirs to catch the rain that we're going to need down the road where we tend to be pretty shortsighted, especially on weather stuff. You know, as a weather guy always was was hearing on a on a windy day, you'd hear well, man. I've been listening to living in this area for twenty years. I've never seen wins like this. And I would always really because last year around this time we actually had wins with velocities a fifteen or twenty miles an hour greater than that. So we just I think even policymakers respond to what's happening out. I understand they talked to climatologists they talk to meteorologist, but they they still are influenced so much by what's going on at the moment. Look we're in a day facto desert climate without question. But that doesn't mean we can't build some infrastructure to capture seven this rain.
