"I was on his website actually yesterday, and I noticed the information he had on this big game this week. John said that the wrong team is favored in a game in college football this week. And I think most people remember Let me just point this out Thehe that John had a big big big wager a few years ago on a game like this, and it was all over the media. So let's bring in John Price. The sports information traders dot com makes you give him a call 8664412711 John Price from sports Information traders dot com John You've been my friend excited because just you bringing up that game from 2016. It was just A thing of beauty. We went on the radio that week with a game that we knew was wrong with the odds. We knew it. I knew it. 100%. It was SM you which, of course, stands for Southern Methodist University. They were plus three over to lane. We went on the radio on Thursday. We talked about the game we had. We gave it to our clients Thursday and Friday by Saturday when the game kicked off S M U was a one point favorite. Oh, the line Flip. And they won by four points. It was a big was the biggest wager that we as a company collectively have made in four years, and now we have a similar circumstance, and I'll just give you a little behind the curtain look. We do our own lines with games. We generate lines based on what we learned. We compare them to Vegas lines looking for discrepancies. We have found the game this week or I'm telling you, I know for certain the wrong team is favored. When that happens, we do two things we have our clients bet on the money line, which means your return is going to be a lot bigger than your risk because you're betting on an underdog to win outright. In addition, we're going to bet on the underdog with the points. So this is the biggest play we will have and have had.
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.
Stone tools suggest earlier human presence in North America
"Coming up I, though he's been looking into some stone tools, new muddling analyses suggest humans may have lived in the Americas thousands of years earlier. The many people bolts. Now the of when humans first arrived in the Americas is a hot debate for archaeologists. Well, it's actually a long debated topic as well. This is an issue that arose in the Americas in the eighteen seventies. This is David Meltzer an archeologist who investigates when humans arrived the Americas. Of the past hundred years, or so since archaeologists have gone back and forth on when this might have happened. More recently, thanks to additional archaeological, Ngoma evidence research, his off, starting to converge, go window from when humans first stepped foot on the America's. What we have coming out of archaeology is a number of sites that are sort of in the fifteen thousand years ago range. And so that gives us a minimum age. We know the people were here by that date the ancient. Is pointing to a split. Between Northeast Asian populations and those groups that would come into the Americas happening around Oh twenty, three twenty four thousand years ago, and that kind of gives us a maximum age so somewhere between that twenty, three, twenty four and fifteen is probably the window within which we got people leaving Northeast Asia crossing the Land Bridge and coming into the Americas within this window for many archaeologists. Archaeologists is most likely. The people entered the America's around sixteen thousand years ago. This is due to the prevailing well-established archaeological evidence, which is also backed up by climatic conditions before this time between sixteen thousand and twenty thousand years ago, it would have been difficult for humans to migrate across the Land Bridge from Asia Ju to the presence of giant bowls of ice in North America. This was a time period within the last ice age known as the last glacial maximum or L. GM. If you get to Alaska during the last glacial maximum your in a cola SAC, and so you've got basically two massive ice sheets better blocking your way out, but this week in nature there are two papers that pushed the date of human arrival back thousands of years before sixteen thousand years ago. One has examined the cave deep in the desert Mexico known as cheeky to the oldest dates. We have our somewhere around thirty thousand years ago. This is sipping our delion, the lead archaeologist examining the cave. Hundred years ago would push back human arrival to well before the last glacial maximum when blocked entry into North America. There were some clues that that cave have something. In those layers belonging to the GM that seemed to suggest humans and I was very skeptical, bought Chiquita Cave. If you go deeper and deeper into excavations without stopping when you hit. The Marker. Of the fourteen thousand orbiting thousand, you may get lucky. You may get into something that's been invisible for quite a while with evidence of human during the last glacial maximum, Ciprian was encouraged to look beyond the SPIRA and dig deeper to older sediments. By taking. SCIPION found an array of unusual stone tools that he thinks made by people that inhabited the cave. flaked stone tools made a very peculiar material, which is re crystallized green limestone. So they searched for this particular kinds of stone around the cave, and they consistently picked the Greens variety and used it to to make very good. Looking artifacts that are already shaped, so it's not the typical flint or obsidian. He would find many places during the Now this isn't the first evidence suggested that humans have been in the Americas this early. That oversights weather have been claims of human occupation born twenty thousand years ago, but these are being disputed by some archaeologists. Also there are comparatively few sites of this age in the US or Canada so far. If, we seem that people initially crossed into Alaska across the lumberjack known as Berangere, and then migrated south would expect to find more traces of them. Well. That's where the second paper in nature this week comes in is offered by one of the researchers who's been investigating Cheeky Wheaty Loretta Devia so we were looking at archaeological and colonel metric, so that's essentially radiocarbon dates, luminescence dates from forty two archaeological sides from north, America and Brinda by collecting and analyzing Archaeological Evidence News Associated Dates Loretta, and her co author were able to build a model of human dispersal as populations found out from Alaska across North America. Whilst? This model doesn't find new dates for out of fax. It uses known dice to suggest when people would have I reached the different sites across North America. We were able to see that. Humans were present in North America before during and after the. Maximum, but that human expansion didn't actually occur until later during a period of abrupt sort of global warming, this only did the populations were low during the last glacial maximum, and then rapidly expanded once things go warmer is also backed up by scipion archaeological evidence from the cave in Mexico as soon as you reach the layers in the deposits of the case that day to about. Eighteen, sixteen thousand you the number forty facts just. triplicated number scipion also things this could help explain what was so little evidence of humans during before the last glacial maximum. It's almost impossible to find them I. mean you have such a huge chunk of our planet with just a few footsteps on it? That's that's how I looked like I mean you can barely coli to. populated, continent, but do these papers roll back the daytime when humans were present in the Americas. Well. It may be too early to tell for David. Meltzer you heard from earlier. It wasn't involved in this research. When it comes to the cave, he thinks of a still questions be asked about the tools that were found based on radiocarbon dates that they have I think the radiocarbon dates look awfully solid. It appears as though this technology lasted for minimally according to the dates around sixteen thousand years with a stone tool tradition bat, long lasting one would expect it to have been far more widespread in the region instead of being localized to this this one cave David. Perhaps archaeologist just haven't found stone tools like this. Unless could account for why they don't appear to be widespread. He did have questions as well regarding wind don't to change over the sixteen thousand year period. They were found. The him is quite strange. CIPRIAN however argues the. Maybe that isn't so unusual. If you look at other places in the world during the Ice Age, the stone technologies did the remain the same for many thousands of years without significant changes. So that's what happens that she reach. It behaves more like stone tool industries in the old world where they remain unchanged for thousands of years for the second. Paper David Vote, but Laurynas analysis was sound. He did have some questions regarding some the sites that were included in the analysis. In some cases, these sites themselves, the data is highly ambiguous, so you've got a well dated site, but the artifacts or the indications of a human presence may just be shattered, bone or cut mark bone, and those of us that do field work that deal with this kind of thing know that there are a lot of natural processes that can mimic human actions on bone or stone, the debate surrounding when humans first came to the Americas is far from solved this newspapers at evidence to it been many ways. They raise a lot of questions as well. Perhaps though they will inspire archaeologist to dig deeper to find the first Americans at the moment subject to change if you look at the converging genomic and archaeological evidence, it looks as though people are coming in soon after the less maximum. So Sixteen fifteen and a half thousand years ago. Could they have been there earlier? Absolutely? But if you're going to make the argument, it's going to require you know well laid out case. That was David Meltzer. From Southern Methodist University in the US you also heard from Cipriani Audet Leeann from the University of Texas in Mexico and Lorena, Sarah Devia from the University of Oxford here in the UK and the University of New South, Wales in Australia, we'll put a link to the papers.

"Right. Victoria I don't think that's a dumb question at all run I think that's kind of the crux of the whole matter it is mystifying that the president would actually put this kind of request before a person whom he does not really know and does not really know he can trust and yet he seems so convinced that this server is there in Ukraine that maybe that could be seized by the president of that country the president has a very strong let us a robust definition of what presidents can do and that certainly seems to apply to a lot of the people that he has made friends with around the world rather autocratic figures from Vladimir Putin to Kim Jong moon and he sees it as in the purview and power of the new president of a country like Ukraine to do whatever he wants and so we have some suggestions Donald Trump has some suggestions for some things that the new president's once you could do that would be of great use to Donald Trump and. well let's just remember the context four hundred million dollars hanging fire Jeff angle I think it's going to be really hard in the next few days for people to view this without either invoking Watergate or accusing people of invoking Watergate this get this gonna get super opinionated instantaneously what do you want people to keep in mind as were winding down about the history of these and of these kinds of cases impeachments as we weigh this going forward what might help us keep a little bit more clinical about this. right now I think the Watergate example is really becoming more more relevance especially in the context of their previous question asking why did president would not only do such a thing to do such a thing in such a ham handed manner you know we asked the same question about Richard Nixon who as you pointed out went on to win an overwhelming landslide she really didn't need to authorize the break in at Democratic National Convention or to win elections and yet he did and so I think it gives a good chance of help presidents being in their own bubble if you will you get a warped sense of their own power and worked into their own reality and briefly barber what would you like us to keep in mind. I'm that joke we need more facts and we need big picture here looking solely at a phone call is not going to give us the full context here but there is enough smoke to suggest fire and if the the proof pans out the way this smoke indicates it's a very serious abuse of power because it is endangered our national security Barbara McQuaid a former US attorney and a law professor at the university of Michigan professor McQuaid we appreciate your time thanks very much thanks Jeff Jeff angle the director of the center for presidential history at Southern Methodist University Jeff thank you thank you and NPR senior correspondent Ron Elving front thanks as always thank you Josh this conversation was produced by page Osborne with spring from a requirement to learn more about our team visit the one A. dot org slash staff this program comes to you from W.

Mary Louise Kelley last night, the two US Senate candidates from Texas debated in San Antonio three weeks before election day. There was an important opportunity for democratic congressman veteran Rourke an incumbent Republican Ted Cruz to make their cases to voters the debate. Like the race was downright nasty as NPR's. Wade Goodwin reports Senator Ted Cruz is reelection campaign has not been shy about attacking his opponent. Congressman Beto were Rourke on TV. I'm Ted Cruz, and I approved. This message metalwork is more extreme than he wants. You didn't know what attack at which eventually seemed to backfire cruise. Campaign. Misleadingly edited videotape to make it appear as if a Rourke said he supported flag burning which he did not say better. Rox positions are too extreme even for them just to reckless for taxes until now better work has declined to participate in negative campaigning. But with the poll showing cruise with anywhere from a six to a nine point lead, the congressman relented and has gone on the attack Republicans and Democrats alike know that we've got to lead on immigration reform, and yet Ted Cruz is the only Senator to vote against moving forward with that conversation is bounded to deport every single dream last night and their debate in San Antonio this trend continued crews painting or work as a dangerous extremist if you work in energy, if you work in oil and gas congressman rox record on this is extreme he didn't just vote for a ten dollar a barrel tax on oil. He's also voted for aggressive regulations of fracking. But unlike their first debate. Last night Aurore hit back. This is what you can expect over. The course of this debate Senator is not going to be honest with you. He's going to make up positions and votes that I've never held or ever taken is dishonest. It's why the president called wine Ted, and it's why the nickname stock because it's true, although crews would force a laugh when a work attacked him. His face revealed is true, emotions and the Senator didn't like it. But the debate in San Antonio was more than just battle. It was substantive to cruise has the numbers on his side. There are hundreds of thousands more Republican voters in Texas, the Democrats as a result. Cruise spoke mostly to his base. The state of Texas is booming. We've got right now. The lowest unemployment in forty nine years, Texas is seeing the benefits of low taxes and lower regulations and congressman or rock position is always always always in favor of higher taxes if Cruz generally played two Republican fears. What would happen? If Democrats gained any power work tended to speak to voters better angels. Whether we will remain the inspiration of the world is an open question right now. The partisanship pettiness the dishonesty that defines so much of the national conversation. We are in desperate need right now of inspiration. Although orcas running way ahead of other taxes. Statewide, Democrats close still get you know cigar? I think that a very good democratic candidate running against a flawed Republican candidate has a chance to break through. That's why Iraq came up so strong on cruise. Cal Jolson is a professor of political science at southern Methodist university Cruzan is an acquired taste people respect him as a conservative fighter. They don't necessarily like him. They gave a rock a look. But Democrats have to recognize that competitiveness is a decade or two decades out. It's not two years. It's not for years is longer than that. Because demographic change is very slow. Beto O'Rourke will appear in an hour long CNN townhall event tomorrow evening and mcallen on the Texas border Ted Cruz declined to participate. So our work will answer the voters questions himself. Wade goodwin. NPR news. Harvard is defending its admissions policy in a Boston courtroom this week. The question is whether the school discriminates against Asian American applicants the case could go to the supreme court with broad implications for -firmative action in schools yesterday. We spoke with an Asian American student who believes Harvard should consider factors including race. Kelly. Bap avant has the opposite view. She is also the daughter of Asian immigrants, and she's a junior at Harvard. Welcome to all things considered great. Thanks for having me. Why do you believe Harvard's admissions policy needs to change? I think race nearly creates illusion of diversity, and I'd love to see admissions policies change, not to have recent now Harvard says that when they do consider race, it's one of many factors that they consider it's complicated role in students life experiences would you like to see race just totally omitted from the list of factors that Harvard is considering when it assesses a student's qualifications. Yeah. I think so because when it comes down to it raises sort of something that is becoming not just merely a factor. But oftentimes the factory that a decision is based on. I think Harvard is saying that they don't do that. But what students for fair admissions has been showing in the past few days in has really brought to light is that oftentimes it is the single risk factor that comes down to someone's rejection students other admissions is the group that brought this lawsuit we should say. Yes. Yup. And I think it's scary to see this repeating in history because back in the nineteen twenties. Harvard sort of did this with Jewish applicants as well. Insert of USA personal reading to artificially keep their numbers lower. Although they were scoring higher on everything else. Similar to what happening with Asian Americans right now, some supporters of Harvard in this case have alleged that the group that brought this suit is using Asian-Americans almost as a front trying to drive a wedge among minority groups and that at the end of the day this lawsuit if it goes to the. Supreme court and a successful is really likely to help white people more than any other racial group. What do you think of that argument? I don't think that that's true at all. Clearly affirmative action has failed in its school right now. It's instead discriminated against Asian-Americans under the guise of diversity anything. This is a critical time to reevaluate. How -firmative action policies are impacting different communities. I'd like you to respond to something that Harvard senior Sally Chen said to us on the program yesterday. She plans to testify for Harvard at the trial. Here was part of our conversation. Merit means nothing without context. The kinds of barriers that people face and the kinds of the ways that they overcome and work despite these barriers I think is really important to how we're thinking about the ways in which people can succeed and can lead merit means. Nothing without context. What do you think of that idea? So I think that a lot of admissions processes should be based on just merit. But I come from an inner city public high school background, and I do recognize that merit does need to be put in context. Sometimes what resources and opportunities. People have available to them is really important. But I think that when we look at it we shouldn't just be looking at merit in the context of race. But again, like I said married in the context of economic status or something that speaks more to someone's opportunities and resources is really important. It sounds like you both agree that there are things about a person's application that cannot be quantified in grades and test scores. You just disagree about whether that list of things includes race or not. Yeah. I would agree with that. I would say that all of a sort of have the same goal of diversity on a college campus, whatever the benefits of it are, but we just don't believe that we have to resort to racial izing admissions. And instead focus on something like poverty because when we focus on something like race. I think it. Creates a sort of division in sort of diversity for the sake of diversity. And I think chief Justice John Roberts said it best when he said the only way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race, but Kelly thank you so much for talking with us today.
