TX Sen. Bob Hall: A Weather Balloon Can Launch an EMP Attack
"One of the things that concerned me lately is when I saw the weather balloon being used Right We used a weather balloon It was called project yucca Why you see it You look it up on the Internet It was the first time we detonated a nuclear weapon high in the atmosphere We launched it got it up to about 85,000 feet and set it off and discovered this electromagnetic pulse that came off of it Now because it was still in the atmosphere it wasn't as big a pulse as what we got later four years later when we were in the South Pacific then on a quadrant and launching a couple hundred nautical miles into space in which of course you know you get no kinetics from it I don't know nothing blows up nothing gets knocked down no physical damage But the gamma rays that thing impinge with the particles in the atmosphere are knocking their electrons loose which are interact with the Earth's magnetic field and in a fraction of a second induce a large current 2000 volts per meter In anything metal or electrical And renders them absolutely broken by burned up Anything

"But yeah, it takes a certain type of traveler to want to do this without a doubt. And that traveler is definitely me, but which is why I love it so much. But you're right, the cost is higher. It's one of the higher, more kind of epic trips that you're going to do, probably. But as I said, it's 17 days and all your food and all you have to do is get there. Which is not easy either. That was expensive to get flights out there. And just the time. I went out days ahead just because I had so many different connections to try to get there. I didn't want to miss any of them. Or have some, you want to build yourself a little bit of a buffer. Just in case you do miss a flight, you don't want to miss the boat, yeah. Yeah, yeah. And I guess the other thing I would say, which is a little weird because I'm not really a shopper, but another thing to know about the area is if you're into, I don't know, a South Pacific relics. There's lots of there's lots of shopping to be done. Shopping, meaning families come and set up their hand wood carvings. That you can buy. Or boards or I don't know coconut grass skirts or whatever. But actually, it's a lot of really intricate, beautiful carvings, and detailed hand work, like things that take months to make. So the only hard part about that is if you do want to buy some of that stuff, you have to make sure you can get it back. So luckily, we had someone on the ship that was going to say expert a bunch of that. And she would know the rules like going into Australia if we could take that in. So anytime I didn't buy, I bought a couple little souvenirs. But I would always go to her and be like, can I get this back to America through Australia? Yes or no? Yeah, but there were people that were really collectors and so on and this is stuff that you will not find anywhere. And interesting. As I said, it would be when people found out that the ship was landing or whatever or arriving for that day. All these different people would come down from different villages. Also to try to sell some of their wares and stuff like that too. Yeah, so that was really fascinating too. Excellent. If we start to wrap this up and I asked you where the prettiest spot was that you saw in melanesia. Where would we be talking about? Where are you standing? What are you looking at? I would say

"Here are some of the top cyber and intelligence stories of the past week. Hackers are taking advantage of all that turmoil at Twitter according to new research from cybersecurity company proof point. One of the new Elon Musk features is having users pay a monthly $8 fee to receive a blue verification check. So allegedly, it proves that you are who you say you are. A short time later, researchers saw a huge increase in fishing campaigns, targeting media and entertainment groups, celebrities, journalists, and other notable users who typically have that blue check. The fishing campaigns tried to entice users to enter their username and their password as part of a billing regime for the new service. The report was released shortly after Twitter's engineering team was gutted and the platform's multi factor authentication systems had been on the Fritz. The record reported this week that these civil contingencies committee that cabinet committee that's supposed to deal with major crises in the United Kingdom has been snowed under with ransomware incidents. This year, ransomware accounted for 18 nationally coordinated responses. Because, among other things, hackers targeted a water utilities company and a software supplier for the national health service. Sources told the record, it shows how little progress has been made on ransomware prevention in the UK. And finally, a small island country in the South Pacific has been scrambling to respond to a cyberattack. That's knocked out email and government services for more than a week. Vanuatu, which is home to some 300,000 people, and is considered one of the happiest countries on earth, according to the happy planet index, is decidedly less so since a cyberattack hit in early November. The hackers decided to strike less than a month after the election of a new government, which is a favorite time for hackers to strike. The Sydney morning Herald reported that Vanuatu refused to pay a ransom, so hackers responded by disrupting essential services, including tax collection, police, hospitals, and schools. Australian cyber police are helping Vanuatu rebuild its networks. It's

Hammerstein replied, a bit sheepishly. I was delighted with the parts of your letter praising my work and thrown into consternation by the unwelcome news about the eccentrically frigid behavior of views in June. I have since checked your statement and found it to be true. It looks very much as if in the interest of scientific honesty, I shall have to abandon the verse, dealing with sheep. For the record, he did not. Also for the record, the reason we have this full exchange is that Hammerstein kept not just the letters sent to him, but carbon copies of his replies detailed missives to directors who wanted to make changes after opening night to movie sensors who wanted to clean up carousel lyrics to other authors who asked him for advice, and to the many folks who suggested source material, they thought Rogers and Hammerstein should musicalize in the late 1940s and early 50s, they were offered pygmalion and the once and future king.

In fairness, during those years, they wrote South Pacific state fair, the king and I Cinderella flower drum song and the sound of music, so it's not as if they didn't have some decent ideas themselves.

"That is the sound of a volcano erupting not only that is the sound of the biggest underwater volcano eruption in over a hundred years and it comes from the hunger volcano off the Pacific island of Tonga that recording was captured by an infrasound eruption in Alaska It was speeded up 20,000 times to make it audible to our ears professor David phi heard the explosion and he studies volcanos in other words he's a volcanologist and he's on the line now from Alaska Good evening to you professor Good evening Tell us what we heard there It sounded like two separate things going on Yeah there are actually three separate waves kind of passing in that recording The first one was the direct wave coming from the volcanic eruption to Alaska The second kind of whooshing sound was the wave going around the other direction around the earth and then being recorded and then the third one is that first wave that had already propagated across the earth once and was traveling around again You heard it live right What did it sound like and feel like Yeah so it was late at night like 4 a.m. and we grew up with our baby at the time and we heard these kind of booms like every 30 seconds but did not know what it was and definitely did not think it was a volcanic eruption in the South Pacific Is that because it sounds so unlikely or is it because it's so unusual Well so essentially we don't usually audible sounds you know that we can hear generally don't travel very long ranges We can hear lower frequencies or lower frequencies will propagate much further But this was very unexpected to get these audible sounds at such great distance This is actually I think the furthest documented audible sound ever So what caused it and why was it so big And I believe the biggest in a hundred years And did it break anything Yeah it's a good question why it was so big That's something I think we're still trying to figure out I think our best guess now is that we had magma and gas interacting with a lot of sea water that when you can add water to a volcanic eruption it could be quite explosive And this eruption produced this one very big explosion that propagated across the earth So did it move anything or break anything Well it was pretty remote area so I don't think it broke any Windows or anything which can sometimes happen But it did this wave produced a lot of different effects and one of them being an contributed to tsunamis So that was kind of an interesting and has there just aspect to it What does it tell us The eruption itself were these waves Yeah Well that's interesting yeah So there's a lot of things we can learn from this There's certain things we can learn about the eruption and some of the hazards associated Part of that being the tsunami that I mentioned but a lot of it is this eruption and the waves from it were picked up globally basically I think by almost every sensor out there that we have and so it can tell us a lot about how waves propagate through the atmosphere how they propagate into the earth Which can help us better understand volcanos et cetera Thank you so much Professor David phi there on the line from Alaska.

"Off. Chinese businesses dominate nearly every sector of Solomon Islands economy from natural resource extraction to retail businesses and increasing assistance to the Solomon Islands government, although Australia is by far the largest owner, says committee. In order to understand China's growing influence, one must understand the flows of Chinese capital. The response to China has been mixed in the solomons. Last November, protesters demanded sogar a stepped down for the 2019 decision to end ties with Taipei. The protests escalated, resulting in violence that saw several Chinese owned businesses burned down. The prime minister is sticking to his guns, however, speaking on Wednesday, Sagar said the agreement was necessary to cover critical security gaps and improve the ability of the authorities to deal with future instability. He added that the Solomon Islands entered the deal with eyes, wide open. Development plays a large part in the reproachment between Beijing and onara. Test Newton Kane, the Pacific hub project leader at research center, the Griffith, Asia institute, says that sogar a believes Chinese infrastructure and investment are essential to the country's economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. He's very much made it clear that that's what he sees as the economic path or a significant part of the economic path, and there's no question that China is very much the principal player in economic development of Solomon Islands. She says. Meg Keane, a professor at Australian national university, says that Pacific island countries see security and development issues as intertwined. They want to see strong commitment from their development partners on the full range of security issues. She tells time, which include climate change, human security, resource security, as well as traditional security. What are the implications of the pact? While the pact undoubtedly gives Beijing greater presence in the Pacific, keen points out the signed agreement remains secret, so the full implications are hard to judge. Newton Kane believes there may be a domestic backlash. The issue of lack of transparency is a concern in Solomon Islands, as has been the case in relation to other decisions by the sogavare government, including the switch in 2019. She tells time. Already, a senior opposition figure in the islands, legislator Peter kennel laureate junior is warning that the pact will further inflame emotions and tensions. At the same time, the fact that the U.S. delegation to the solomons is going ahead, Newton Kane says, is a positive sign that sogavare is maintaining communication, and is available to hear from partners as to what their concerns are. Says that the pact will spur greater western engagement with Pacific Islands countries. Already being seen in such initiatives as Washington specific pledge, Australia's specific step up, New Zealand's Pacific reset, and the UK's Pacific uplift. The reopening of the U.S. embassy in Honiara is part of the same drive to counter Chinese influence. It is, however, unclear whether that will diminish China's growing influence in the region, says kabula. So far, it hasn't..

"Neither price, nor the NSC official, cited the text of the agreement, which has not been made public. New Zealand and Australia have also expressed concern over the partnership because it might allow for a Chinese military presence in a region they have historically considered their sphere of influence. Australians far in affairs minister Maurice Payne told the Australian broadcasting corporation that there was a lack of transparency in relation to this agreement. New Zealand's leader Jacinda Ardern, echoed the sentiment, we see such acts as a potential militarization of the region, and also see very little reason in terms of the Pacific security for such a need in such a presence. She told radio and Z but prime minister manasseh so Guevara of the Solomon Islands has criticized such responses and an address to parliament on March 29th. He said, we find it very insulting to be branded as unfit to manage our sovereign affairs, or to have other motives in pursuing our national interests. He added that the country would not allow China to build a military base, but at the same time the Solomon Islands needed to diversify its relationships with other partners. Canberra, which has a bilateral security agreement with the country, said earlier that it would continue to cooperate with the Solomon Islands, even if the pact with China was signed, but prime minister Scott Morrison faced criticism on Wednesday for not dispatching the more senior pain to Wuhan instead of Pacific minister seselj. Penny Wong, the opposition party's shadow minister for foreign affairs, told Australians ABC News that it was the worst Australian foreign policy blunder in the Pacific since the end of World War II. Says the security agreement demonstrates that the balance of power in the region has been disrupted. China is a power that is here to stay, at least in the foreseeable future, and has disrupted Western countries dominance of the region. Why does the Solomon Islands want a security pact? In 2019, the Solomon Islands switched diplomatic recognition to China from Taiwan, which China considers a breakaway province. Since then, China has been boosting economic ties, involving the solomons and its signature belt and road infrastructure initiative, and promising to build a multi-million dollar stadium in the country ahead of the Pacific games next year.

"Show. I'm holding in my hand a book. But I hold a lot of books in my hands. This one, however, has a disturbing title. It's called the coming tsunami, why Christians are labeled intolerant, irrelevant, oppressive, and dangerous, and how we can turn the tide. Normally I would dismiss a book like this. But then I realized it's written by somebody that I actually like. And I would love to talk to him about this. Because there's some people that have these views and they say, oh, it's all going to hell and let's just hide in our caves. And then there are people that actually think more deeply about this. The author of this book is one of them. My friend doctor Jim dennison is my guest. Jim, welcome. Eric, I'm glad to be on with you today. Thanks for the privilege of the conversation and I'm glad you didn't justice miss the book as you obviously could have, and I would have as well. Had I received it in the mail also. Because a lot of people have this view and they have a bad, they have a bad take on it because I know you. I just get cheered up just by talking to you. So even talking about something like this. So yeah, first of all, talk us through how you get to that to that title. Yeah, you bet. So a tsunami is a tidal wave you can see caused by underwater forces you can't see. Usually the earthquakes about 80% of the time underwater earthquakes can be an underwater volcano as we saw recently in the South Pacific. It could be a mudslide meteor. Well, I'm claiming that there's a rising tide of opposition, cultural opposition in America, the Christians have not seen in American history. But it's always too soon to give up on God. There are ways to turn this tide. There are hopeful, redemptive things we can do if we know why this is happening. So for underwater earthquakes that are causing the tsunami we can see, the book explains what each of those are and explains redemptive ways that we can be used to make a difference before it's too

"Radio. I'm fascinated by just trying to get away from it all in the South Pacific and to be inspired not only by indigenous people there today, but also by a great traveler and writer and lover of life Robert Louis Stevenson a century ago, did you pick up any sort of survival skills, Tom Hanks cast away kind of stuff in your travels that was helpful in your writing? You know, I'm sure it's you're the same. You know, once I get on an airplane and I start to go overseas, I just take up certain different habits. With regards to food and water and basics like that. But in the South Pacific, you can still be fairly careless, I suppose. You have the fruit off the trees. You have the fish in the sea. You have the water that comes from the sky. It's a more primeval life in a way. More primeval. That's a good word. I guess that's what I was imagining as you can be primeval today. Now you wrote that you felt like you had a kinship with Robert Louis Stevenson, like you were soulmates. Was he primeval? How were you soulmates? I think so. The way he lived his life. He was a born traveler. You know, he said he doesn't travel to go anywhere, but merely to travel. I love that quote, yeah. Yeah. And that's sort of the way I've been all my life as well. But what I find so curious about Robert Louis Stevenson is that the end, his sort of decision to settle in Samoa out of all places. Why do you say out of all places? Well, Samoa really is at the end of the world, and as I said before, Robert Louis Stevenson was perhaps the most famous writer of his time. Yeah. But Robert Louis Stevenson, he was perhaps the only man who didn't recognize that he was himself famous. He felt much more comfortable in his bones, sort of being on a ship and pajamas, you know, striking through the south seas, and he did in a crowd in New York. Obviously, Robert Louis Stevenson is a great traveler, and a great observer. Can he give us travel tips so that we can travel better today? I think he was perhaps a proponent of the full immersion experience. He was never sort of dabbling on the outside, you know, gawking at the locals. He very much wanted to sort of partake of their life, and he had sort of an engagement with the world around him, that I think sometimes when we travel lazily, we miss out on. So if an opportunity presents itself, the answer is yes. Yes. That's one of my themes lately. You know, I'm tired. It's late. Opportunity, yes. Yes, exactly. This is travel with Rick Steves, we're speaking with Jay Martin truce, and he's written a trilogy of books on the South Pacific, his latest travel memoir is headhunters on my doorstep inspired by the adventures of Robert Louis Stevenson a hundred years ago in the same part of the world.

"Robert Louis Stevenson, when he started writing about the early literature of the South Pacific, described it as sort of a sugar candy sham epic, and he almost has a taunt said if you will read my work, you will know more about all the South Pacific than all the volumes combined. So it took him up on his challenge, but I was more inspired by his life, the way he lived, sort of the living in the moment and seeing sort of the majesty of the world and everything he encountered. So let's talk about that because a hundred years later, you've been inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson. He had his health problems, you were struggling with alcohol problems also. And you're following his trail around the South Pacific. What did he do that you did that worked into your adventures in your writing? What he did, what you could really tell is how much he was at present in the moment. And that sort of no small thing. You know, he had much in his past and of course there was the enormous pressure of being one of the most renowned writers of his time, but what I really took from him is sort of the delight he took in life itself. You can see if you take a look at the photographs from that era of his sort of the twinkle in his eye. Yeah. So it's a wonderful sight to see on such a sort of frail body. I was just in his museum in Edinburgh in Scotland, and he is a fascinating traveler and that really contributed to his ability to be a fascinating writer, talk to me about some specific sort of things that we would enjoy seeing or actually doing pig hunting with a spear, chasing sharks, climbing coconut trees, dealing with headhunters. What are some of the vivid things that could a modern day traveler could incorporate into their experience? Well, one of the things that I really enjoyed is traveling to the Marquez is by ship. There is one boat that does take a few passengers at departs from Tahiti, and it takes you to islands that are inaccessible by air. So only by sea, and you go to places like fatu hiva, which is a perhaps renowned for higher dose days. It was an island that he lived on for two years before World War II, and it's one of the most remarkable, most beautiful islands I've ever seen. How so? Just breathtaking, it's sort of a strange fusion of islands. You have sort of the tropical air of it, of course, with peaches and the palm trees down low, but it's a moody island. It's something that you don't typically see in those latitudes and the higher you look up, the more almost fierce it looks. And the mood of the island seemed to sort of change and shift with the change of the light. Just with the passage of the sun. I can imagine you could kind of feel the weather, the humidity, the before the storm and this kind of thing. Yeah, you do. You're very much part of the elements there. And then further on towards the two motos, Robert Louis Stevenson was really taken by the beauty of the lagoon in fukura..

Yeah, certainly should have been possibly even a new category of most controversial. What would have been the alternative for the government to buy it or just to, for Telstra to buy it on its commercial merits alone and fund it entirely itself? Well, I don't think it has commercial merits because if telser is only buying without much assistance from the government, the government is starting government probably doesn't necessarily want to fund or own a telecommunications network in the South Pacific. However, it could help it could provide aid in funding to help the network improve. Theoretically, China could come and buy the assets, so there's no sign that they actually had made a bid for them. But if that was the case, I suppose that's the reason the government has. But there's other ways to do it. And one of those is just 8 packages to help did you so get on its feet? Yeah, it really is a quite remarkable story. Okay, moving on, what has the COVID news been like this week?

Even though they were drinking identical glasses of water what do you think about the amazon pressure. Okay now i can take on. this is definitely tasted. It's it's almost too easy to make fun of this. Whole business of different waters tasting different. But also penn and teller isn't necessarily the most trusted source for food news so we figured we should be open minded and scientific and test this whole thing out ourselves. We bought a bunch of different types of bottled waters and we through our own top water into the tasting mix. and then we each deputized partners. Tim and jeff to create a blind taste test for us. Tim down fourteen little glasses. Got a hold of some tap water and then he opened and poured each bottle and one cam here in los angeles. Jeff did the same following the instructions. On tim's spreadsheet we'd picked an american spring water the couple of european mineral waters some bottled process tap water specifically aquafina and then to mix things up. We added one of those bogus alkaline waters and some artesian water. All the way from the south pacific we have an array of glasses and each row of glasses represents different types of bottled water. There is some tap water in there to throw you off and we are hoping to see that you might or might not be able to tell the difference. I have to say.

"Jordan. Heath rawlings is the big story. Michael doyle is a freelance reporter and journalist based in toronto who examined the future of money in canada for the globe in mail. Hi michael jordan. Can you start us off. Just because it's such a useful way to think about this. At least i found it useful by telling us the story of money on the island of yap certainly Yup is a tiny island. That is now part of micronesia in the south pacific and for hundreds of years. They had a very unusual form of currency and that was these gigantic limestone rocks and the bigger they were the more valuable they were and also of course the bigger they were the more difficult they were to actually physically exchange with each other so over time they Just left the rocks where they were and In order for them to figure out who owned which rock which note of currency for lack of better term. They created basically a form of a ledger.

"The success of sex in the sea in ways that we might not anticipate, right when it's most important. So for clownfish, they are often caught and sold as aquarium pets and the bigger fish right are the ones that tend to be the more attractive for sale. So if you imagine on a reef, you go around and you start pulling off all the big clownfish. You're taking all the females and taking all the females completely disrupts the life cycle of an entire school of clownfish. You skew the sex ratio. You're you're making it harder for those individuals that are left behind to actually find their meat or you're forcing them to transition in a in under conditions sooner than they would that's going to actually. Decrease the amount of offspring that is being produced, which causes a ripple effect for every creature connected to the clownfish. So just imagine how we are messing with the meeting habits of all kinds of marine life. The ones we know about and the ones we don't. It's so varied the way the animals have sex in the sea, and it's so different that we really need to take that step back and start to shift the way that we act and shift some of our behaviors so that we can respect Way that life reproduces there rather than thwarting them. All to say, we need to know how marine life do it. And so now let's dive deeper and move from the coral reefs of the South Pacific, down to the cold, cold romantic waters off the coast of Maine.

The hms bounty mutineers and seventeen eighty nine. He had been on a voyage to the south pacific to secure breadfruit plants. Which were supposed to provide a cheap food source for. Britain's enslaved workforce in the caribbean previous hosts katie and. Sarah did an episode on this in two thousand ten and we re released it as our most recent saturday classic. So we're not gonna go back over all of the details today but there are some aspects of it and of bligh's later naval career which are relevant to what happened in new south wales. The biggest was this. Mutiny had tarnished bligh's reputation in some circles people disparagingly called him things like bounty bligh. This wasn't entirely justified though. Mutinies were so common in the late. Eighteenth century that british captains who got back from long voyages without having had one were praised for it and at first buys reputation after the mute was really pretty positive. He had successfully gated thousands of miles of ocean in this little open boat saving the lives of nearly every man who had been loyal to him but then while he was out on his next voyage which was basically a. Do over of the one with to mutiny. Some of the mutineers were caught and faced a court martial the mutineers and their supporters particularly the family of ringleader. Ed christian circulated propaganda that depicted bligh as a tyrant the mutineers martial testimony was similarly damning and bligh was not there to defend himself.

"Last weekend. I was teaching a private open water class to a woman who wanted to get her confined water. Training done before heading out to the south pacific to work and to complete are open water dies. That's pretty nice. Don't you think well as we were finishing up our classroom work. We reviewed the logistics for our pool session. The next day. I pulled up the map on my computer with the street view to show her where to enter the building and the location of the parking and as we were closing out she said just give her the address. She'll let the gps in her phone. Get into the pool. Pretty simple and she arrived on time the next day at the pool. Ready for our session. Now during our pool sessions we have our students where computer on the wrist. I like to let them get used to the feel and also looking at the computer while underwater and as i was explaining that we liked to wear the computer on our right wrist with our compass on the left wrist. She asked if there was an underwater. Gps available instead of a compass. That's a reasonable question. Right now i would say not really. I know that garment makes a dive. Computer the descent mark one that has surfaced. Gps to mark your entry and exit points but the glamour on their website states. Gps tracking and satellite communication does not work underwater technology however continues to be amazing. I did come across a company. Navigate out northridge california that is creating a solution of sorts it involves a gps gateway which is a floating radio antenna with a suspended array below and that communicate with a wrist mounted unit it uses an acoustic signals that determines the bearing and range from the gps gateway and then plot your position on the dive site. It's an interesting piece of technology and still evolving. The website for naveh made says it will be available this year. The cost of the wrist unit will be fifteen hundred dollars while the gps gateway will also come in at fifteen hundred dollars. There was some reference that they would be making the gps gateway available to boat operators. So it would appear that we are at the cusp of some new and exciting ways to navigate during our diving but as we know the proliferation adoption and success could take awhile the wrist. Mount unit is only good. If you have the gps gateway available it could take awhile until there are enough of these units out there to make to make it worthwhile purchasing a fifteen hundred dollar unit. You could end up with the gadget on your arm. That isn't going to give you what you want. So that's where we come to the tried and true underwater navigator. We all start are underwater navigation. Training deal i open water diver course when we are introduced to the compass and how to use it for some simple navigation on the surface and underwater. But if most people are like me. I wasn't really ready to navigate effectively on a dive. I needed more experience and training. We get this during our advanced open water training when we do more navigation training and conduct a navigation dive to extend our knowledge we learn about kick cycles how to measure distance and extend our skills with a compass for most people. This is pretty much the extent of their navigation training. So you'll have to make sure that you practice use your compass during a dive to set a course and see if you can return to the boat us time to judge your distance and kick cycles learned to trust your compass and you'll find your underwater navigation skills improved. You can also continue your navigation training and education with the water navigation. Specialty course for the patty specialty. You go into more detail about measuring distance how to use natural navigation techniques and more use of the compass including underwater patterns after completing your knowledge development. Which can be done using the patio electronic learning platform. You'll conduct three open. Water dives to build your skills and proficiency and underwater navigation having that confidence and competence in using your compass and finding your way underwater reduces your stress and anxiety and make sure diving more relaxed and fun right now. We really aren't able to avail ourselves of underwater. Gps it sounds like there might be solutions in the future and as we have come to appreciate technology advances. We'll be standing by for now however you can't go wrong in developing your skills than the tried and true underwater navigation techniques and equipment
