Australia-New Zealand Travel Bubble Brings Relief, Elation
"To their relative remoteness. Australia and New Zealand have been fairly successful in tackling the coronavirus. Now the two nations are opening the world's first quarantine free travel bubble. It's also the first time in more than a year that Australians will be allowed to leave the country without a special exemption. Our correspondent Sharma Helio joined those boarding the first flight. The International Departures Terminal of Sydney Airport has been busy since the very early hours of the day. I am looking at a long and spiraling queue in front of the check in desk because for the first time in more than a year Travelers will be able to fly to New Zealand quarantine free between them. Jeff Starr and Qantas are operating 29 flights today a very busy time for Air New Zealand as well. They'll be transporting about 5000 travelers and at least 3000 of those Are going to New Zealand before the pandemic. Australia was New Zealand's largest international visitor market. So yes, this trans Tasman travel bubble is a big sigh of relief for the tourism and the travel industries. But Those initial flights will mostly be full of family and friends, reuniting with loved ones for the first time in more than a year.

Heavy rains pummel Australia's east, bringing worst floods in 50 years
"About 18,000 people have been evacuated from their homes across New South Wales in Australia as heavy rains continue to cause severe flooding. Torrential downpours have prompted rivers and dams to overflow around Sydney. The rain is forecast to persist for several days. Our correspondent Sharma Khalil, is in one of the worst affected areas. 18,000 people have already evacuated many, many more already to go. 38 disaster zones have been announced. And with more rain like this forecast for the next few days, the fear really in this area Is that things will get worse before they get better. Remember that the areas that are currently impacted by the floods, many of them in South East New South Wales have also been impacted by the catastrophic bushfires and years of drought before that.

A Conversation with Naketa Ren Thigpen
"Welcomed extraordinary woman radio and the key to it is so great to have you join us today. They can be. I am honored to be here. I have been so excited to talk to you in. Learn more about your work. Learn more about your stories are der mutual. Jessica roads introduced us. And i just adore jessica and the whole interview connections team. Then we already have something in common. I absolutely love them all. Yup yup jessica yup. All of them that they are and It's and it's so much fun to every time every time i meet anybody from that community. It's like they're they're just good people they're people doing good things in the world and they're they're just really they draw the right people into their community. Which makes it feel safe when they recommend someone breaks exactly the same. Yeah yeah well nikita. I wanna start with your story unless there with your personal journey and it you are running an amazing business and i want to know. How did you get to this point What's what's the journey been. Because i know it hasn't been just a straight line from you know from there to here so tell us just a little bit of this this arc way of. What's gotten you to where you're at. No question. And i know you and i were talking before we started about the layers that women have you know people have but it's been lillyman layers mastery that different in that respect lasts of twist in terms of my journey So i started off. My business is almost ten years. Old will be ten in may of this year so entrepreneur relations. Thank you. Entrepreneurship is a decade. For me at this point for a veteran a great. That's a great milestone. i hit ten years i think it just a little a year ago and it feels good when you hit that right it. Does you feel like did you have that feeling when you thirty. You're like a hammer out relies announcing you as a as a business owner in all parts of the process. We love it. Weiner churn we cherish by. It does feel different when you can feel like you're kind of doubts inside your life end in your business. So prior to becoming adult again this My journey started as a licensed clinical social worker. A trauma specialists sexologist relationship therapist. Like all things human behavior. I really just wanted to understand. Why did certain things or didn't do certain things to make their lives full and rich and healthy and whole That were anchored to whatever their experiences where that may have actually ridge dramatic so you were. You love this. Study people and behaviors and that's awesome It was really important for me to be really clear about how defined sharma like some people think. Oh i was sexually abused. Or i wasn't in any kind of intimate partner violence so it doesn't matter to me like that's not why i'm having difficulties or challenges but a lot of people didn't understand as my work got deeper and deeper and i understood the legs that trauma and michael jets that trauma smaller traumas can have as it also includes ways that you might have been violated when someone you and you held onto that and who stored at a certain way Limiting your ability to shy the lack of a better phrase being endure case extraordinary trade. Yeah it it kinda makes um that that emotion or that feeling in your body making you kind of poland. Smaller guest's feels like absolutely And i wanted to know why. I wanted to know not just for the other people but i honestly gambling i wanted to know. Why did it right on my life right. I liked that you say that it wasn't you didn't have to be some big trauma that there can be some instant that happens in our life that that that we carried forward at simply that we here a lot of law you know. All the parts of my life like in terms of our clinician being a being in practice. I would hear people say. I don't have that that we trauma story so that means also will have the big success on the other side because you know we are here it right the quote unquote gurus out there. They've all had something at least reportedly they've all had something family abandoned on raise in foster care right right by major thing happen so other people listening what feel like. I didn't have that. I have both my parents. Were in a nuclear family. Other than my siblings. Getting on my nerves for the most part wasn't hitting major bullying. So there's this meeting that. I can't be successful that i won't have healthy happy relationships so deep studying because i am a hashtag nurture life right so we've really studying that and being removed from my own biasi because we do bring our own biases in every situation. I really got to understand it. Some people were denying bear experience. That was traumatic even if it was a quarter whole smaller although we have to be careful with that were by you know measuring outsource experience but compared to maybe catastrophic right or military level heath yesterday ramble words and ryan there right soon grief and a knowledge that they had something that needed healing So that they could be restored from that just because it wasn't seeing as a what a trauma in the eyes of the news reporting So that really. Let me down the funnel of all things Figuring out why people were kind of stuck in this survival moles as a clinician. I honestly candidate. That was my job is to be with you in your process to help you figure out the route at dysfunction to get you get your legs underneath of you so that you could navigate and start to survive host trauma once you had identified or became aware of it regardless of win. That awareness was unlocked. Not where things got rocky for me by honestly is i wasn't happy during it. I was really good at it. And i loved it but i wasn't in my
Australian court rules terrorists can be imprisoned longer
"In Australia has ruled that a Muslim cleric who was jailed for leading a terrorist group can still be detained despite completing a 15 year sentence. Sharma Julio in Sydney has more details. Abdul Nacer Benbrika, a known supporter of Osama bin Laden, lost his appeal against the continuing detention order filed by the Australian government. The high court found that the law was valued as it protected the community from the threat of terrorism. Ben break, his lawyers had argued that his prolonged detention was unfair and that the federal government did not have the power to impose the order. The Muslim cleric and his followers were arrested in November 2000 and five after Australia strength and laws to detain those in the early stages of plotting terror attacks.
Sugar vs. Salt
"Hi i'm molly bloom. And this is smash boom best the show where we take two things smash them together and ask you to decide which one is best today. We're going to tickle your taste. Buds with two of the most mouth watering flavors in the world one is the savory mineral we like to lick off pretzels the other is the sweet ingredient. We like to sprinkle on our cereal. That's right it's sugar. Verses salts which fabulous flavor will come out on top here to help us. Decide is ceylan high kaelin high volley. Thank you for having me. Thank you for being here today. So kaelin before we get started. I just wanna know. What kind of snack do you prefer salty or sweet. That's it's a tough one. But i think i'd have to lean closer towards salty. Sweet can be a little too overpowering so when it comes to salty snacks which is your favorite cashiers or some type of nut. Caches are debt from my favorite. The cashews are very delicious even though you prefer salty. What is your favorite sweet snack. I'm not quite sure of. This is a snack but we have bacon covered in sugar kinda like evenness of a little bit of salty but mostly sweet. So that's why. I like that mix. I am a huge fan of a salty sugary. Mix myself so it sounds amazing. So as you know. This is a debate show where the art of persuasion is highly valued. Do you ever into debates with friends or family. Maybe about food while recently me my brother. We had this debate because he was on a cooking contest so he learned all these skills like how did juliana pepper and he tried to tell me that he was better at cooking. I don't know how to julius peppers so he has more skills than i knew but he never uses them. I cook a lot more often so we were going back and forth trying to figure out. Who's the better cook and my step mom came. She was like. I agree with kaelin. Like church doesn't know how to julianne pepper but overall i think she a better cook nice. You've got that judge in there yet. So what's your favorite thing to cook. I like making mac and cheese and orange chicken. Because i really like to those mac and cheese an orange chicken is a little sweet sweet salty. Dish yeah it is well now. It's time to introduce our debaters here to defend salt the mineral. We always have handy at the dinner table. It's cookbook and children's book author new york times columnist and restaurateur kenji lopez. Hi kenji her you doing. I'm doing great so. Kenji recently wrote a picture book. Called every night is pizza night. My daughter loves it. Can you sum it up in one sentence and it's about a girl named people who believes that pizza is the best food in the world and then discovers that there are other foods that could also be best. Pizza is delicious. I do agree with her. And kenji in one more sentence why assault cooler than sugar well because there are lots of things that that there are lots of things that tastes great with just salt and no sugar but there is nothing that tastes good with just sugar and no salt. Everything needs salt It's essential for for many many reasons. Excellent while here to defend sugar. That's sweet stuff we sprinkle mix and melt into all of our favor treats its molecular. Biologist turned cookbook author food photographer and recipe developer. Nick sharma hi. Nick hi molly neck. You'd just published a cookbook. Called the flavor equation. Can you describe that in one sentence. Yeah my cookbook. Is a science based cookbook. That talks about You know what makes labor so special to all us from my emotions memories and the sights sounds textures rumors taste and even you know salty. I put it in the book. That was very generous view. It sounds sounds like you've been giving a lot of thought to sugary and salty flavors recently so in one more sentence. Why is sugar far superior to salt. I think this should summit up. I mean why would you like to be known as salty. Wouldn't you just want to be called sweet well. This conversation is already making me hungry. How are you feeling after these flavorful. Intros kaylin i already know. This is going to be a hard decision for me. Because they both brought some interesting points that i agree with both of them for so. I don't know it'll be hard for me. It's gonna be a tough debate for sure but before we dive in. Let's review today's rounds of debate. I we've got the declaration of greatness in this round. Nick and kenji will defend their sides. Using the most persuasive facts opinions and logic. they'll also each have thirty seconds to read. but the others declaration. Then we've got the micro around a creative challenge. Both sides have prepared for in advance for around three. It's the sneak attack. Will surprise nick and kenji with an exciting challenge. They have to respond to you on the spot and last for round four. We've got the final six. Both sides will have exactly six words to win over our judge. Kaelin will be awarding points to each side along the way but she'll keep her scoring a secret until the very end listeners. We want you to judge too. If you'd like to keep score on official scorecard you can download one on our website at smash boom dot org. And if you have any comments to share with us about the debate or the judge's decision had to smash boom dot org and send us a message. Alright nick and kenji are you ready to make some mouth watering arguments. Yeah let's do this all right. That it's time for the declaration of greatness ceylan you have two points to award in this round. One is for the best declaration of greatness and the other is for the best rebuttal. They can go to the same person or not. It's up to you and you can use any judging criteria. you want. Who is the funniest who had the more persuasive facts you decide got it got it excellent. We flipped a coin and nick europe. First let's hear your knock down drag out defense of the sweet stuff. We can't live without sugar. Sugar is magic. Don't believe me. Just watch the nutcracker. It takes place in the fantastical land of swedes where chocolates and candy canes dance and slow sparkles like sugar the ruler of his glittering kingdom the sugar plum fairy a beautiful fairy cream. Who gets me from sugar plum candies which are ugly. Enough not plums. Sugar plums are actually balls of sugar. Made of layer of mound layer of hard candy like the candy coating on eminence the tarsha and delight. Would you want to go hang out in the magical land of salt no. I'm imagining a desolate cave. Where pickles swing dance and saute bish flop around in the ground trying to breathe not a good scene. Take me back to candy land. Remember the game that is a magical game while you play you get to imagine licking the ice cream roof of candy castle is therapy board. Game called salty land where you take a bite out of a beef jerky fence. No because salt does not magical added is definitely not as amazing as sugar.
Australian Open to go ahead despite Covid-19 case: Organizers
"Say the Australian Open tournament will begin as normal next week, despite Wednesday's announcement that hundreds of players and support staff must self isolate. Thursday's warm up matches were canceled after a security guard at a hotel in which athletes were quarantined, tested positive for covert 19 His Sharma to Leon. We were expecting big names for warm up events here in Melbourne Park today. This was a chance at some more practice ahead of the main event on Monday, badly needed really, for many of the players who were cooped up in hotel quarantine when some positive cases were detected on the planes that brought them here in Australia. None of that is happening today. With more than 500 players, officials and coaches now having to isolate they now have to return and negative test to be able to get back to the competition.
How to Keep Computers Happy Using Chemistry
"I'm joined today by dr ugo. Sharma from cas which is a division of the american chemical society. Cas specializes in organizing and analyzing publish scientific data that informs researchers through their search platforms such as science finder and has also being used for customers learning analytics applications. I'm also joined by charles river. Scientists dr david clark. Who's a enthusiast together. We will be discussing the role of machine learning and chemistry how we can train computers to support researchers and how he can keep machines happy with high quality data. Welcome ugo and david exe my. Thanks mary me too. So i wanna start by getting our listeners on the same page. Can we discuss the difference between machine learning and true a i in which is really more valuable for chemists realistically sure. Yeah so we're gonna start by defining ai to a is it's really a broad concept refers to machines with intelligence and for the purposes. Here we can define intelligence is the ability to solve a problem so machine learning is actually a component of i. It's has subset and machine. Learning actually enables a system to learn by itself for chemists specifically a is the ultimate goal so using computers to speed up discovery and innovation and machine. Learning is really. What gets the work done here. And especially within applications like drug discovery so essentially you know leveraging computers to and existing data help reduce the available candidates face potential targets and some used to accelerate and reduce costs for drug discovery. This is really where rubber meets the road. And so you know africanus. There's other applications around things like molecular property. Prediction were trying to predict things like solubility melting points. You know all of these things. Leverage machine learning using known molecules in their properties the sort of predict properties for for new molecules that were unsure of other applications around molecule design. So medicinal chemist a lot of time designing new molecules variety of applications and then another sort of hot area right now. For a and chemistry's retro synthesis says basically when you have a given molecule using ai to predict viable pathways to actually synthesize that molecules becoming a pretty key area so for a drug discovery standpoint. David which part of this process is one of the most valuable for chemists like in terms of being able to analyze giant piles of data and come up with something useful. At which point is that the most useful for you a. A human chemist various levels of usefulness. I mean for many years. Chemists have been taking data and deriving predictive models from it in perhaps long before people were thinking of this as i. But i think one of the really breakthrough applications of i that i've seen in recent years has been the so-called de novo design of compounds where and i has been trained on a very large database of known drug molecules and then asked to invent some new truck molecules or truck candidate molecules that resemble What it's been trained in some way up. Put us still different enough to be innovative and useful. So they'll be props molecules that have same types of collectively and fiscal chemical properties up at an unless novel in terms of their chemical structure. So i think it's really those as we've been mentioning taking very large sets of data and bringing new discoveries are of them that you know you just couldn't do that with a a human person. Is that the. The task is too great it so easy for people to get stuck in their own knowledge space. If you like not be able to think outside that whereas the machine has no preconceptions if you like can come up with something that's truly novel. Yeah so the machine theoretically can know every chemical every drug that has been patented the formula for all of them and it can sift through that and find ones that haven't yet been tried but it can do more than that can at ugo it can also predict what kind of chemicals might actually hit a biological target. Yeah exactly so. I think that's sort of a especially with you. Know things that are going on in the world right now around. The pandemic is understanding mechanisms that can produce a specific kind of biological activity like like antivirals inhibiting well replication finding molecules that can sort of work along those pathways in all of this is based on leveraging existing data so using previous research Training up models we can learn relationships between things like structure and activity and then applying those models to new data. Or you know. Maybe drug already been approved to repurpose them as therapeutic agents. Yeah so bringing it back to your company Can you describe what see as does as kind of an elevator pitch sir. Sorta the short version here. So we're a division of the american chemical society being specialize in designing scientific information solutions that help organizations essentially be more efficient by leveraging the work and learnings of other scientists in our recent focus has gone beyond just our products like science finder which mary mentioned before Providing customized services to drive things like enhanced scientific data management increased scientific workflow efficiency are probably most relevant to the discussion here enabling high-value high high-precision initiatives required customized data sets coupled with scientific expertise
U.K. becomes first country to approve Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine
"What a newly approved easy to handle vaccine is being dubbed as Britain becomes the first country to authorize its use. Britain's Health Department said it was authorizing emergency use of the vaccine developed by Oxford University in UK based drug maker AstraZeneca, Karen Shamas reports. The approval and a shift in policy will speed up a road out of the vaccine in the UK, which comes as a surgeon infections threatens to swamp British hospitals. Riches, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said. The vaccine brings light at the end of the tunnel. I'm also now with this approval this morning, highly confident that we can get enough vulnerable people vaccinated by the spring. We can now see all route out of this pandemic. Good. AstraZeneca vaccine is expected to be relied on in many countries because of its low cost availability and ease of use. It can be kept in refrigerators rather than the ultra cold stories. Some other vaccines require. The company has said it will sell it for $2.58 days and plans to make up to three billion doses by the end of 2021. Karen Sharma's London of all freed stocks in
After Shopping And Shipping Crush Come Record Returns
"Beginning of the year is the traditional time for fresh starts. New resolutions and returning gifts. You didn't want its peak season for online returns in this story. NPR's Alina Cell Yoke introduces us to a word that's new to me. Returns. My getting The end of the year. You think it would be the time when stores and retail companies could finally exhale from the crush of holiday shopping? But for many, it's just the beginning. This is the calm before the storm. From our perspective. Marcus Jenna's chief operating officer at B stock, which helps stores resell the returns, and January is when the big wave of those returns comes crashing in. Right after the big wave of shopping, Shin says, returns in the first place give people confidence to buy stuff. Online sight unseen returns really are highly correlated to sales. But then the more stuff we buy, the more of it is likely to get sent back and this holiday season so record setting sales, causing the 2020 ship McGee, Aiden, overwhelming postal and delivery services. So what comes next is a record setting volume of returns, which Twitter mavens of retail have been trying to call returns. My gettin doesn't really roll off the tongue, right? We're all just trying to figure out a nice way to talk about this stuff. Whatever you call it. The phenomenon is real. This year surveys air, finding the majority of shoppers planning to return at least some of their holiday gift. Nerve are which handles shipping and returns for hundreds of brands, predicts twice as many returns this year compared to last here CEO Amid Sharma and I would estimate just in the shipping cost for retailers. To get those items back. It's going to be over billion dollars over a billion dollars. Sharma says. A few trends feed into the surge of returns, and the first is pretty straightforward during the pandemic. More shoppers are buying online instead of in stores and things we buy without seeing or touching. Get returned Much more frequently in general, is 4 to 5 Times higher returns in online channel was his instruction, especially in the apparel and footwear, clothes and shoes. He says 30 to 40% of them might get returned. And there's one thing in particular that online shoppers have been doing a lot, especially during the pandemic by the same item, either in different size or in different color or style, with an intention off, keeping one and returning the other items. This is expensive for retailers who call it wardrobe being or bracketing. My favorite analogy came from Kerry's ate at warehouse robotics company Locus who says it's modern day Goldilocks. I called the three Bears concept. They're ordering a size up in a size down, but they find the one that's just right and the other two items, then our return. This has been going on for us long as online stores allowed free or relatively cheap returns. But This year in a pandemic with fewer opportunities to check things out in person. Even more shoppers discovered this option. Also, more people have been trying new stores, which means shopping at places that never visited before unsure of sizing and quality. And finally, Sharma from Navarre says they're sorry. Found one more reason. Pandemic weight changes almost 40% off. Customers have mentioned that their sizes have changed during covert time. And hence there buying multiple items making sure they fit very 2020 excuse for shopping like Goldilocks. Alina, Sell you NPR news.
EU nations kick off mass effort to distribute COVID-19 vaccines
"The EU have begun a coordinated effort to vaccinate the most vulnerable among their nearly 450 million people. Those vaccines began arriving in the EU countries on Friday. The first doses of covert 19 vaccines are being administered to Italians today, with the first in line being healthy. Workers and stuff and elderly people in nursing homes. The first was a 29 year old nurse at Rome's Infectious Diseases Hospital that it will be the turn of over eighties and those with chronic illnesses. Next will be the general population on the hope is that in nine months herd immunity will be reached in Italy with 42 million people vaccinated. Sabina Castle Franco CBS news Room. There have been at least 16 million infections in the used 27 nations. More than 336,000 people have died and as that vaccination drive begins across Europe, the French government is taking a more low key approach. The first vaccine shots were injected into the arm of a 78 year old Morissette in a long term care facility near Paris. Cardiologists Dr Josh Jackman swears who took the vaccine shortly afterwards, said taking the vaccine. Was also of national interest. They are vaccinated. We are vaccinated. We're all in the same boat and the boat cannot sink and around the boat. There is a country that cannot sink. However, many French remember French health scandals in recent decades involving mismanaged vaccines, Many others are worried about the speed in which the vaccine was developed and are anxious of the side effects. It may bring. I'm Karen Sharma's.

Bobby Sharma on the Recent Esports Survey
"Show is focusing on a study published in mid November, which is an annual look at the E Sports industry the studies conducted by Foley & lardner law firm and specifically fully Sports Entertainment Group where Bobby is a special advisor home study was also conducted a partnership with the Esports Observer. This is the third year the study would you introduce hundreds of Executives around Esports? I will go through all the findings here at all, like the full report below the show, but some of them That's that were of Interest Who did that 73% of survey respondents expect to see increased investment in Esports a Zappa demek wide Stewart head over Q4 2020 and q1 20-21 the study also touched on gambling house additional Sports could use Esports and better ways and a lot more interesting Insight from leading Executives across the US and Europe. Primarily Bobby took the different findings in the report was there would start that really stood out to you something that surprised you. What's what's all the data was done collected. I don't think anything surprised me. I think I mean this is a really interesting survey that fully laden has been conducting now for three years and it gets even more interesting with each passing year to see the evolution of the industry at least a perception of the the evolution of the industry in real time. But last year, you know looking at Trends is always really interesting last year. I think we saw a more mature birth. Level of investment come in in the sense that you had more private Equity Capital than Venture Capital than in the past which makes sense given that the sports industry is young but quickly maturing and there there seemed to be a lot more long-term Value Place for investors the pandemic of course thrown a wrench into everything and not you know to answer your question or directly. I'm not surprised that the findings of this survey basically are mixed in that of course, like all sports media and entertainment properties Esports has taken a hit to some extent because of the massive disruption because of covid-19 and depend emack that that's that's basically disrupted, you know, any any events or oriented business and whereas a lot of people understand these boards to live largely online the reality is that you log Culture lives, you know very much in person at large Gatherings and Arenas and stadiums and and in smaller scale type of event so that that's had a direct impact to the revenue but I say mixed because throughout this pandemic there has been certainly a perception that Esports has thrived and it's definitely true to a certain extent. It's been terrific for the Publishers because more people are playing video games more people have more time in the day because they're not competing or you know are at home where a lot of these things are consumed and participated in and no part of our survey questions and and the narrative that you mentioned you're linking that we put together from the results speaks to to those Trends where we've had some of the media companies reporting, you know web traffic up wage. 75% in terms of gaming you've had certain situations where you've had, uh, you know gambling become, you know, what will I'm sure we'll speak to that later become an actual regulated phenomenon for Esports that wasn't in the past because of in part because of the absence complete absence in the second quarter of this year of any traditional Sports at all to bet on so it's it's been I'd say the good is outweighed the bad and I think that's that's where the the survey Nets out for Esports and that it's it's taken a hit but a minor and it's it's poised for more growth going forward relative to traditional Sports, which is I think what makes these Sports so amazing is that it has such a big and under monetized and young and negatively digital Highly Educated High disposable income audience that everybody wants to to to connect with so long. So yeah, I think both the for the good and the bad good outweighing the bad the results are not too surprising and nothing really surprising to me. I should say

Tenet Grosses $150 Million Worldwide
"I'll tell you what your pet project that you've been working on for years. Grosses $146 million the first couple of weeks. It's on sale. I'm a pretty good day, right? But when you're the Christopher Nolan hoped for Blockbuster Tenet 146 million's kinda Big and a summer holiday weekend. You would want to blow the doors off the box office. But given everything word is the tenants performance might be a sign that Hollywood is on the rebound. Marketplaces. Jasmine guards has that one. $20.2 million on any given day. That's chump change for a U. S and Canada movie premiere. But with a pandemic still raging, experts say, 10 it did Okay. Professor Arun Sharma from the University of Miami says there are two lessons from the last couple of months and movie premieres. First. Some movies are just better off, premiering on streaming on ly. If it's a Children's movie, the data is very clear Launching. It is a good idea, which is why Disney plus just released Mullan on its platform for $30. A charm. A says there's not a lot of data on how movies for grownups do with a streaming premiere, which leads to lesson number two. If it's not a kid's film, pushed the release date back because most movies aren't going to be highly anticipated, helmed by acclaimed directors and plenty of films that are all that have still pushed back. Your reputation precedes you. After admit I wasn't expecting an invitation back. That's right. Top gun fans that waited over 30 years for a sequel are gonna have to just wait one more until 2021. Frank Patterson is a president of Pinewood Atlanta Studios where Marvel movies air filmed right now, production is on. Ly resumed at around 30% capacity there. But Patterson is cautiously optimistic, he says the industry constantly weathers challenges. Actors, dropout deals die. You know, our pivot skills are legendary in the movie business.

Washington DC's Bike Boom Shows No Signs Of Slowing Down Amid The Pandemic
"Geneva Sharma ordered his first bike just weeks into the pandemic. He lives in a small downtown DC condo with his girlfriend just trying to get out in a safe manner. I figured a bike is the best way only one problem I just. Didn't think about that everyone else was going to be buying bites at this time and I googled IMOs like Lo and behold there's a bike shortage in in America Sharma's bike was back ordered. So it took a while to arrive since he got it Sharma's been exploring all over riding up to twenty five miles at a time for many in the city outdoor space has become a premium cycling, his boomed as it's one of the safer socially distance ways to exercise. During the pandemic, some local trail sensors of shown twenty five or fifty percent increases in traffic over the same time last year if you want a new bike, it could take a few months waits for repairs, stretch three weeks or more at some shops demand his far outweighed supply that's been tightened. Thanks to the pandemic and shortage of parts from China. The US market is competitive. Two things have been terribly busy. That's Keith Jackson who runs operations for gearing up bicycles. A used shopping eggington I've been in a bicycle business since nineteen, ninety, five and everybody would tell you they've never seen anything like this between the desirability of bicycles. All of a sudden people stuck at home and people no longer doing comfortable mass transit Jackson found a line of people outside shop when he arrived for work the first weekend after DC, shut down in March, I sold everybody that Saturday all fifteen used bikes gone in an hour and a half. Wayne Sousa co-owner of Conte's bike shops has also seen unprecedented demand for new bikes. He sees a lot of first time cyclists and families who are looking for group activities outside the House. His biggest suggestion for those who may be looking to get into cycling. You don't need to necessarily buy a bicycle that's the most expensive one that they have or the fanciest gadgetry that they had of just get a bicycle that you feel comfortable on and start writing but getting comfortable running bike in the city doesn't come naturally for all the Washington Area Bicyclist Association has had record demand for their learn to ride and riding in the city classes.

Wada has created online spaces for beginners to ask questions and learn more about how to get into cycling. Short shared her favourite safe trails in Prince George's county during a recent Webinar but she also had a call for action. We need you out there a lot of us live in the county or little frustrated about the lack of bicycling infrastructure. But a lot of times that stuff is based on the demand sold more bikes mainstream more infrastructure more trails more all of that cities across the world or adapting to how people are moving around during the pandemic Peres is adding four hundred miles of bike lanes. Austin Texas voted to spend one hundred, twenty million dollars on new bike infrastructure. DC and other surrounding areas haven't committed like those cities. The district is staying with its plans to add twenty more miles of bike lanes by twenty, twenty, two, the Bike Association says, that's too slow. Officials have created some temporary space for walking and biking, and DC, in Montgomery County but it's not clear. These changes will last Sharma's he hopes those kind of spaces stick around because he'll be biking even after the pandemic is over climate change and his own health are among the reasons I think I'm GONNA keep to it I whenever we get back to the office I. Think I'm GonNa Start Cycling to work once I forgot how to make sure I'm not sweaty when I got to the office. He's not sure when he'll go back but until then you can catch him in tons of other new cyclists out on the trails for WMU Jordan Paschal

Away Brain aneurysm. And he's gone and the real concerns here temporarily. As he did not do a lot to accumulate wealth. He was a great humanitarian. He didn't put a lot of value on money and here is he's passed away. Now that's a concern for his family and yet the testimony of his power value is in the amount of people that he touched. That are now coming. We have that story as we've all read you know so many times if somebody somewhat unbeknownst and then the people who showed up.

"What is more important than mastering oneself? The world claims those who have mastered a skill and we glorify people for what they can do what we fail to recognize often. Is the necessary mastery of self. That preceded whatever act. The person on stage is on there for we really need to hear that the performance whether on stage or on a sports field or on a camera in the workplace is result of a level of mastery of self. It's not the most talented who win. We've all seen great talent. Go to waste. Because the person couldn't pull their act together right. Well it's some talent and skill that is honed through the daily fire called discipline and habit and routine that creates mastery of self. So in this show I bring you robin. Sharma and mastery itself is his muse. He wrote a really intriguing book that came from decades of his teaching. That it's boil it down. It's a playbook for self mastery. It is written in story form an admit it had me wanting to go back in again and again to hang out with the incredibly aspiring characters in the story so in this episode. Robin and I talk about the root issues of mastering ourselves. If you don't know Robin he is a globally respected humanitarian bestselling author.

What Is Pi?
"Come to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio rain stuff lauren. Bo-bottle here the number referred to as pie has mesmerized mathematicians for four thousand years. It's the rarest of back medical constance and unfailingly accurate ratio. That's also never ending. The digits of Pi have been calculated out more than twenty two trillion decimal places without ever repeating a. That makes it an irrational number. The definition of Pie simple. It's the ratio of a circle circumference. That is the length around the circle divided by its diameter or at the links across the circle. But what's remarkable? Is that no matter. The size of the circle you're measuring that ratio of circumference diameter will always equal three point. One four one five nine two six five three five eight nine seven et cetera usually shortened to three point one four divide the circumference of a tennis ball by its diameter. And you get three point one four divide the circumference of the planet Mars by its diameter. And you get three point one four divide the circumference of the known universe by its diameter. You get the point. Pie is critical to several basic calculations geometry physics and engineering including the area of a circle which is Pie Times Square of the radius and volume of a cylinder which has pyre squared times the height of the cylinder when ancient Babylonian attempted to measure the precise area of circles back in one thousand nine hundred BC. They signed a value to pie. A three point one to five. The ancient Egyptians came up with three point one six zero five the Greek mathmetician archimedes working in the third century BC and the Chinese mathematician. Xue Changsa working in the Fifth Century. Ce ARE CO credited with calculating the most accurate approximations of Pi before Calculus and supercomputers gave us a more definitive answer. Then in seventeen o six. The self taught Welsh mathematician. William Jones assigned the Greek letter P. To this magical number without end possibly because P is the first letter of the Greek words. For periphery and perimeter symbols use was later popularized by Eighteenth Century. Spec petition Leonard Euler but wasn't adopted worldwide until nineteen thirty four. The fact that Pie can be found everywhere not only in circles but an arcs pendulums and interplanetary navigation and intimately long has inspired a cult following that includes plenty of Geeky tattoos and even its own National Holiday National Pie Day was officially recognized by the United States. Congress in two thousand nine but the definitely not square roots of the holiday can be traced back to nineteen eighty-eight and a man named Larry the Prince of Pie. Shaw Shaw was a beloved longtime employee at the exploratorium. A Science Museum in San Francisco California and came up with the idea of Pi Day on one thousand nine hundred eighty eight staff retreat following the death of exploratorium founder.

Shaw eventually built be Pi Shrine at the exploratorium a circular classroom with a circular brass plaque at center. Every day celebration at the exploratorium ended with a colorful parade led by Shaw blasting his boombox with a remix of pomp and circumstance set to the digits of Pi and circling. The Pie Shrine. Exactly three point one four times. The parade ended with the singing of happy birthday to Albert Einstein.

"Prostate that's why we're really here is this a cancer Sharma cancer doctor never want to dwell on that and he says the oncologist again he means a urologist so the two options so I really had more than two options is that one was surgery to remove the prostate and the other was a chorus of radiation and chemotherapy which I don't really believe he meant chemotherapy says in the book again or tried to keep all the facts straight as you can so if you decide to read that you'll understand that everything he wrote isn't exactly a hundred percent medically correct it's probably correct from his point of view so is offered either surgery or radiation and he said that the radiation to be a series of treatments and so for that reason he went straight for the surgery he says a lot of men won't have it because it's a major operation you can have sex afterwards and you can't control the bladder well that's right but then was a little bit shocking he says that his kids made the decision for him I looked at the ages of his kids I just go go to a few minutes ago and his kids were about five and six years old and he said the kids made the decision for him he said he doesn't like the idea of cancer hanging over me over us for years you just want to get rid of it so it's a little bit I would say strange to lead a five or six year old decide on cancer treatment okay because probably a five or six year old no matter how these from our house where they are and I'm sure as children nurse March like most of our children are so smart but it's really hard to have a discussion with children about the likelihood of being cancer free from surgery versus some form of radiation there's various forms of radiation on each form of treatment has its own success rates and its own failure rates of his own complications and I just wonder when he says he's allowed five or six year old decide that I wonder if he told the children for example there's a data in our books or compare our book his book where you can actually look at quality of life after surgery either open surgery where the surgeon opens up the patient even Elton John with his hands on a knife or with a gizmo called a robot now could Elton John really explain to his children that the likelihood of sexual damage these are five or six year old children the likelihood of sexual damage was a ninety seven percent with surgery and the likelihood of urinary leakage and urinary issues was more than eighty percent so that's issue number one how do you explain to a five or six year old that you can't have sex anymore after surgery and you'd be leaking year and remember most five or six show just a few years before were wearing a diaper so they can hear and may be more familiar to a child with a minute view it as abnormal and I would as a parent I would have major concerns is really a child decided that for you a major the dog first of all the idea of a multi millionaire enterprising and every man had every man I believe once the same thing I believe every man wants to have the best chance of being cancer free and to keep the quality of life and to avoid radical surgery well he said he let his children decide for him so I found that a little bit shocking in the road from that most of the the most shocking part of the story he had surgery done in Los Angeles and he said it was done quickly and quietly and I think by quietly he meant that the news of at any rate set them I made sure that the news of my illness didn't reach the press he said the last thing I wanted was a load of hysterical voices in the papers and photographers outside my house and then he writes that the operation was a major success well he also writes as go on he discovered the cancer spread to two lobes and my prostate and he says that radiation would have caught that well that's totally wrong he said I made the right decision I was back on stage at Caesars palace within ten days and then he said he wrote we went back to Las Vegas he noticed something was wrong in the ad pain getting worse and worse and worse is just days after the surgery well how can you say that the server was a total success when he was an intractable pain in the **** leakage and he said he writes by the time I was backstage at the gig in Las Vegas the pain was indescribable it says he was in tears and he says that the band's told Elton John they should cancel the show the sultan John after radical surgery his prostate but he said no he said that I should point out that I didn't agree to play out any of the show must go on stoicism but he said getting on stage seemed preferable to sitting at home with nothing to do in the same pain so he went on and he said the gate gave him something else to think about other than how ill how sick of how pain he was when you realize that the radical prostatectomy use after effects of his bladder were making themselves known remember this is a man who a couple paragraphs before since the surgery was a success well number one how could it be a success when it left him in pain number one number two is not able to have sex and number three he goes on to say this is on page three hundred forty five was book that these urinating on th and th on himself he's peeing in his pants in front of four thousand.
