Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case

"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet.

"Was kind of what i was doubting t for those things A was he someone you would have heard growing up. Not bear in southern record collection. In my yeah. I think my head is record. But that song was inescapable the way it is. Yeah exactly and we have one in the eighties so it was everywhere and the rest of his songs are much more well known in the states other singles. He had from those first few records. That much less say. Hey i think shame because they're bangers rena good songs. Yeah yeah to number one here. We lose as well. Is that right. Well i mean that definitely would have been on. I remember actually my dad trying to play it can i. I say trying if you there. But yet they were born in the fifties said they generation in the sixties. They would been young. Teenagers said the was everything to them and to us and i was remembering that film sliding doors pouch age over that film. I'm the join hanoch articles them feta lls in that film and he says you know that just there when you boil need. I even know how absorb the bread and butter or tapei This kind of fabric of over us anyway. So they always present and other stuff from that era. I think simon. And garfunkel crosby stills. And nash and bob dylan and all that kind of stuff mamas and papas. Abba even those pop music. But there was that kind of singer songwriter. James taylor stuff that they've been to cat stevens and independent just harmonies the main thing i remember from being kids just singing all the time as family all right. So that's where the kind of vocal blend comes from them. I think it never structured like go before now. It was just singing alone to the radio to take player in the car. And you think just kind of extending that idea. Do you think you sort of pick up. Songcraft by osmosis conscious effort to kind of pull apart these records and kind of see how they worked. I'd say yeah. I think through osmosis. None of us have come from a musical. So theory background. It was very much a in the same way that we'd singing harmonies. We never really talked to do. I think we just picked up from hearing. Amanda doing it siwa. Yeah i think it is as my sis i think it sinks in the having said that when we were kind of in our late teens i starting to do shows as the saves in local pub and atlantic play guitar by that point but we were just didn't covers. We started writing our own stuff. We did cover some of the songs that we grew up with loved and you start to pick them apart at that point when you actually learn them and i must say let the b. two stuff i just didn't even bother mice today is to odd can do so much easier to play dillard in new young and that kind of stuff. That in itself is such a lesson. Songwriting when you cover songs especially for us as it was just the three of us on guitar. So we'd vocally try to emulate locked the elements in song and try and make have the same kind of dynamic range. Even those i knew three of us. And i think that's a really good exercise in learning how to make oh not plateau too much and how to keep it interesting. Keep it alive. I think that was a fantastic education working out a bunch of companies. So does that mean you. How a lot of experience by the time. You've got to lip jess. Yeah because we both went to well. Yeah i was gonna ask you can. I didn't know when the right time might be. It was many moons ago wasn't long after he finished oakland. Actually very old sue thousand and one. I graduated right. I graduate. It didn't thousand ten right as strange. It's like you meet them scattered around you always kind of think. Oh we got something in common. Then i mean did you guys. I loved it i because we have a great time. Lithuania yet loads a great people. Yeah i guess you must've gone eyeball to eyeball with as well if you did the songwriter. In module dead date. I was so jealous. Been more jealous in my entire life and did mum was so jealous. So you just in the same is him. He just remember seeing his like little foot by new balance china's like tapping along to her so surreal thing until well. Yeah did you do well. We saw a few times lipa. But we didn't actually have that experience one on one until we interview too. Yeah will weirdly later. Interview was in litho and it was in the very room where those little one on one sessions are held at the top of the stairs. So by the very surreal. I think they didn't tell you about it when you applied to be playing a very long game to apply in actually have stood degree three as the somewhere in costs have bats commitments which is like fifteen minutes long but this probably someone out that he would the. I'm yes. It was quite surprised that was going to happen so so amazing. Oh yeah commits to that. Every evan he does the graduations and everything for as well. Yeah no. it's amazing that he does it and it was just incredible. I mean it was bad and it went by very quickly. I played him our song mexico which went on to be on our debut album. But i'd written at lipa is live on gambia. Terrace looking over the. I'm the can theater. Yeah i lived in the attic of when these houses. So i write it and Yeah he said it was really good. He goes guitar out and he played along. And he said to me how you go about called. And i said it's actually an open depot says it's not standard chaining and so was like. Oh right okay evan. i had a capital intelligently. What the actually code was paying and so he was kind of noodling along and it was just strange. It was just so strange. I think i was just sweating. Profusely in kind of panicking. Only he doesn't know what caused is. I don't know how to explain it like. Oh my god this very strange. And then he was trying to suggest a way that i could improve the end of the song but i'm not trying to criticize him but he wasn't explaining himself in a way that i could really so it wasn't really sure what he was trying to say but it was something about changing the end in destruction thing but like i said it was over so quickly so i kind of buddy enders i is.

"There's a lot to be said for making yourself do it. 'cause you always right more and right better. Stop the movie. You're doing it for sure. But i find it really difficult. We hear every possible approach. Don't we people do right. Vast quantities of stuff from pick the best things or people who write in those stolen moments. She said they'll be walking out the door and gets off for five minutes and that's where the song comes and we've had that all pretty much at this point. Yeah i mean it's quite reassuring. Think tonight at in on this podcast she guys spike Who simon and also people but even those people when you hear them talking about writing so you realize that they actually know either It's still even with the best of the best. There is always magic. Even you can allies in so pick it apart. And there's certain things. I think that kind of consistent with everyone but as exciting there is this kind of unknown mysticism to it and there is still something else to kind of discover how you did it or different ways in which she did something else you can kind of learn and find out about it. It's an amazing our form like that isn't it because no matter how much craft you are or how many strategies you out to it. There's still a lot magical moment where there's nothing can then five minutes later. The something there that you just conjured out nowhere i think. That's what's endlessly appealing about it. Really yeah and how you can feel that. I always think the thing. I'm writing at the time is the best thing i've ever written and sometimes time told you that that's not true back to have that feeling. Each time is cool feeling. It's really hard to explain to be that kind of pumped about a couple of chords. The premium played a million times around the world. Or whatever but in that moment is nailed it. Especially if you ride only guitar. Who's fall into those familiar core patterns and things that you've done before you yeah. I've spent time being ternate tunings which find house but even in that he then food into the patterns within those tunings that you go to so yeah. I think it's always trying to shake up something as simple as using different shooting. Oh using a twelve string Nashville strings highest strings on on a sixteen guitar playing the same chord. You million times suddenly feels tidy different because the voice things have changed so i always like to do that kind of keeps things fresh in my head. Go play the piano edge that even if you don't normally see on the piano i different from ceo. Muhtar yea i was gonna ask about that actually tracks on the new album like waiting on me to change in devotion. Sound very much like piano songs. Yeah is weird kiss. We had spent time with bruce hornsby in. We played in his band for show. He has festival in his hometown. Say he also play at the festival and then to join his band for his set. And i mean we were big fans of his but to kind be around him and watch him do does was incredible and he was such a sweet guy as well and he's playing his in a massive infants or may and i'm not saying for one second i am like him in the way i play piano. But it's always a voice ings. So i think that was kind of what i was doubting t for those things.

"About just the future of the republican party. And what's happening in real time. A we have the liz cheney types and we have Adam kissing or types. That kinda wanna purge the party that controlled opposition. That you talk about Can you can you speak to the philosophical direction that you want to see the republican party. Going this is something. That's people are wrestling with right now. What is the what is the the political and philosophical direction. You wanna see us going so if we flash back to one thousand nine hundred eighty when reagan. I rang Reagan said is running on five big ideas. The first idea is the idea of the individuals so individualism upward mobility number two The idea of the family the idea that the family is the nucleus of moral education for the young. It's the best place to be raised as within a family. Not outside of it a third. I'm running on the idea of the The church the idea that the spiritual life is important. It's the source of our moral values number four the local community and the country patriotism. So if you think about those five themes first of all their themes that most american dreams are built on They're widely popular all five of those key ideas. I don't see. Trump is a departure from those ideas at all. He might have emphasize one more than the other. His language may have been different instead of speaking for example. Patriotism trump was little more the rhetoric of nationalism of america. First but it's appealing to the same chords so the bottom line to remember. I think charlie is that the traditional republican party. I'm not talking about the rhinos. But the traditional republican party and the maga- movement are in sync are different temperamentally. The different culturally. They fight a little differently. They speak a little differently. Maybe some of them working different jobs but their values are not fundamentally different and therefore it's imperative that we don't fork and move in separate directions because we'll be much week or this is not a parliamentary system where two parties can ally together and form a ruling coalition. This is a case. If you have a republican and an maga- guy running against each other we will lose the election. Pretty much every time even in red states. That's right i. I agree with that. So can you help us unpack. What is populism and should the republican party embrace it a. We've done a history of populism on our show from william jennings bryan to theodore roosevelt to even some variations of kennedy and reagan. They had some populist. Inclinations is populism dangerous. Is something that we should run towards. Or is this something that we should try to avoid. Populism is a term that's a lot like nationalism. And what i mean by that is that these are terms that first of all they have left wing and right wing applications. Today for example people identify nationalism with the right. But castro was a nationalist. Mandela was a nationalist so as gandhi tone. So these are people who did what they did in the name of their country..

"Pandemic" Pet Adoption - Always Great No Matter When It Happens

"I was in a new apartment in a new city after just having broken up with a partner of ten years. I didn't leave my home. I had very little outside contact with anybody. Virtual or otherwise. I was all alone for the first time a very long time. I became even more introvert than i'd ever been before. Feeling sadness sorrow and kind of use on a daily basis. Let me just say that. I am inherently a cat person. But i was compelled to do everything the opposite way of. How about my life up until that point. The all quote. Nothing is working this way. So i'll do it the opposite and see what happens. It can't get much worse in quote. That was my line and my way of thinking at that time. We'll in october of two thousand eighteen. My precious cat when he had just passed away. It was very sad. And so i thought briefly about waiting on getting another pet altogether. Maybe i'll just wait. It was just so painful to imagine going through the worry and commitment. And plus i had just start to travel a little bit more but somehow i didn't dismiss it as the weeks went by. I saw an ad on pet finder dot com for a dog named frank and the ad it stayed that frank was quote body sensitive in quote in other words he was a biter. But guess what that did not deter me. As i read the ad i learnt that he had been in a few bad homes been rejected and returned to the shelter. But the ad also said that wants the bonding phase was established. He'd be a companion for life. I was intrigued as ended up. I wouldn't be all alone for the rest of my life. Like i thought i would. Happy ending for franken me for sure. But here's another pet story. That's just as cool on. Us news and world report. I found this doctor. Liz dare a family medicine. Physician in western massachusetts had wanted to adopt a dog but she hadn't quite found the right time to do it with work travel and other commitments. They're just never seemed to be a great time to adopt a pet and her two cats kept her company. Well enough with fewer knees dog. And isn't that the truth. But in mid-march the world changed when the coronavirus pandemic was declared overnight workplaces closed and like many other people. Liz began working from home. A lot offering visits with patients. Virtually from their homes. Having a dog would help stave off some of the isolation that accompanied the radical change and it is radical in lifestyle so many of us have had to cope with since the coronavirus pandemic began. She says i'm single. And i live by myself so it felt like a really right time for me. Well according to its july seventeenth twenty twenty covid nineteen impact report. The number of dogs and cat adoptions. Were actually down. Twenty seven percent when compared to the same time period a year ago. but foster's were up nine percent. Many states have seen a significant decline in the number of animals. Entering the shelters as volunteers observed stay at home orders but the increase and fosters suggests that more people are willing to take on sick or older pets that might otherwise not have found a safe home to call their own for any period of time because this is an ever changing situation and each shelter faces unique challenges adoption and fostering statistics will vary at any given time. It's so obvious. But there's no doubt that the response from community residents across the nation to support their local shelters by fostering vulnerable animals has been enormous and unprecedented. And isn't that the coolest thing well for liz. The rush to adopt meant. She had to be patient to find her pandemic pet orla name eventually. She connected with a shelter and connecticut right here where i am that brings dogs up from the southern united states. So that's how. She found sophie a two year. Old thirty pound terrier boxer mix. She's chestnut brown with white around her face and white paws and she's got spots running down her chest. She sounds adorable and she is and sweet and she's a very low key dog. I needed to find a dog. She says that was going to get along well with my two cats and as it turns out. Sophia's very good around the cats. Who are still a little freaked out by her. Well let me just tell. This story has a great ending to. She brought sophie home of month ago. They're still adjusting to the new routine. She's totally fallen in love with this dog. So after those two stories. My story about frank and liz's story about sophie. Do you even need to hear the bullet point benefits for adopting a pet. No well here. They are anyway well. They offer companionship. We know that this is important. If like myself you live alone before. I adopted frank who is a dachshund maltese mixed breed. I had no one to look forward to seeing no one to share my love with and no one that needed me and there is something to be said about the human to dog touch. That feels so good. Well provides a purpose to the sense of purpose. Everybody needs pet. Ownership is an important responsibility and one that can be a powerful antidote to depression and anxiety. There are more opportunities for exercise to well this time to walk. Frank during the lockdown played an important role in my wellbeing and his two dogs need to be walked and katz needs to be played with and there is no doubt that these activities with your pet is crucial to your physical wellbeing. as well. as there's getting dose of fresh air is important for both of you. Also it provides a reason to go outside smelled air and be alone with your thoughts. That's right. I said alone because when you're outside there's so much to see and you're using all your senses of very good thing and there's good medical news two that's right. Having a pet can reduce blood pressure the center for disease control and prevention the cdc reports that pet ownership can be a key to reducing stress cholesterol and triglycerides levels. All things that we need to do to be healthy and you know what there doesn't even have to be at pandemic for you to adopt a pet but you can't anyway. It's a good excuse if you need one. If you need a laugh live alone. Want to potentially meet other like-minded pet owners be more peaceful and happier and calmer. This is something to really consider. I know you know this. It's not only you but that furry pet that just may need you as much as you need them. Still a cat person. But i adore my frankie.

Why Black Officers Find Breach Of U.S. Capitol Particularly Upsetting

"Law enforcement officers were overpowered by that violent mob in the nation's capital. Last week. Disturbing videos show that police officers were kicked and punched and beaten with flagpoles. One police officer was killed and another later died by suicide off duty. But there were also a few police officers that appeared to sympathize with the mob. MPR's Leila Fadel reports that for current and retired black police officers It was particularly upsetting. Last week sharing Blackman Malloy watched her former colleagues try to stave off Attackers of the capital alone. Black officer heroically facing a largely white mob as they first breach the building. A lot of them felt like they were all all along black when Malloy is a retired U. S Capitol police officer and the vice president of the United States Black Capitol Police Association. Which led a class action lawsuit in 2012 against the Capitol police for alleged discrimination. She's also the lead plaintiff in the historic 2001 class action discrimination lawsuit against the Capitol Police board. Our organization is calling for criminal charges against the sergeant at arms of the House and the Senate, as well as the former U. S. Capitol police chief who resigned after the attack because they loved them unprepared. She spoken to black police officers that were at the Capitol that day. They're traumatized. Some of the crowd called him the n word. Some are injured. They're also scared because they saw a few of their white colleagues show sympathy with the mob. Several Capitol police officers were suspended as the department investigates the attack on Congress, among them the officer who took Selfies with writers and another who popped on a mag, a hat and directed Attackers around the building. Blackman. Malloy says black Capitol police officers told her this about inauguration Day and then now you expect me to go stand beside an officer not knowing whether or not he's one of one of the terrorists, that's what that's what we did. Then Maybe there were some off duty police officers from outside D. C in the crowd. Police departments are investigating, and that's not lost on so many police officers around the country, particularly black police officers who faced discrimination on the force. Carl Shaw sued the police division of the city of Columbus for racial discrimination and settled for $475,000. You have good police also said you have actually saucers, and in my case, if it wouldn't have been for white officers standing up and risking their careers, wouldn't have had a leg to stand on. I just think we need to change the way we police and the hiring practices. Also the settlement, which conceded no wrongdoing included to demand that the retaliation he faced for reporting racism by superior be a fireable offense. Char retires next month. If you're trading black officers this way, What are you doing to the general public? Heather Taylor, recently retired sergeant from the ST Louis Police Department was texting with other black officers as she watched the attack on Congress. She thought about many of our fellow officers who made the assumption that Trump flags meant support for law enforcement, even when the crowds were incited by the president's lies and included hate groups. Meanwhile, black lives matter. Protestors demanding racial justice were treated as hostile. I don't know maybe realize that these people who are extremists who are militia Who are a part of these groups or about civil war. They want civil war They want to do away with the government and law enforcement has hair to him. Taylor most recently headed the Ethical Society of Police, a ST Louis police organization that addresses racial discrimination in the police force and the community. Okay, well, they're gonna shake I'm going to say that these people are going to turn on them that the police are going to see that the same people that you supported over African Americans in black lives matter. You're going to see that it's different that they're going to turn on you. Sure enough, it was worse than what we could ever imagine. In Minneapolis Metro Transit Police chief Eddie Frizzell says he did more planning for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis than what he saw in the capital last week. Now he worries about the expected armed protests around the country. This weekend. I served in Bosnia bright after the war to orange n aside, had taken place and we've seen what tyrannical regime will do to a country in Iraq. And all those experiences are all coming to a head right now. It gives me a frame of reference to take my experiences, and we have to actually apply them to the unknown that we're experiencing right now known that we're experiencing right now. Leila Fadel NPR

Interview With Cory Doctorow

"Doctor. Wrote welcome to monica. Reads so tell us tell us more about the primus of tax service well attack surfaces the third novel in the little brother sequence at the first two little brother and homeland were young. Adult books about a character. Marcus yellow starts off. His very young teen who is caught in what amounts to a police state when his hometown of san francisco is bombed by terrorists and the department of homeland security swoop in and effectively suspend the constitution and all civil liberties and he and his mates form guerrilla army. Using things like hacked. Xboxes that use cryptographic secured wireless networking to outmaneuver the joss and eventually expelled them from the city and and restore human rights and civil liberties to the population and the third book attack. Surface is a standalone novel for adults and one of the first two are about people who are terrified. By the possibility of technology being used for oppression and excited about the possibility of technology being used for liberation. This third books protagonist is the young woman. Masha maximo who appears in the first two books as a kind of antagonised in the first book we meet her as a vhs contractor. Helping to spy on marcus and his friends even though she's of the same age and from the same background as them in the second book. She's a way bandit working to spy on jihadis and disrupt insurgent networks in iraq for the us government an enormous markup and when we meet her in the third book. she's just gone full cyber mercenary and her job is helping a thinly-veiled version of a company like the ns. Oh group to spy on pro democracy movements on behalf of post-soviet dictator so they can figure out who to round up and torture and murder and she has a reckoning with her conscience. She on the one hand has been spending her whole career finding ways to justify what she does Sneaking secrets out to marcus and his friends so they could blow the whistle wrongdoing or helping marcus escape from the da chest in the first book but by the third book she's really had to Devolve into some pretty self destructive conduct like helping the people that she spies on Defeat the tools that she herself as installing. And that's obviously not sustainable. And eventually she gets fired and worse has to run away from this post soviet republic and finds herself back in san francisco where she discovers to her horror that her childhood best friend who's now on a successor movement to black lives matter is being targeted by the very same cyber weapons that she herself spent her whole life building and while the first two books inspired a really large cohort of technologists and civil rights lawyers and writers and activists and security researchers and cryptographer offers who wanted to use their technical and legal powers for good and to stave off technological apocalypse. And dystopia this. Their book is aimed more at the people who rationalize their way. One decision a time in tech and other industries into participating in a vast confiscation of human liberty and human thriving in service to large corporations and oppressive governments and to talk about what it means to pull back from the brink. When you recognize one day that that you can no longer justify what you've been doing of course corey. That is exactly the situation. We find ourselves in absolutely i mean in two thousand eighteen. We saw twenty thousand google's walk off the job tech won't build it and tech solidarity and no tech for ice and other movements within the giant tech companies are not only organizing around technological issues but also around labor and environmental issues and and you see technologists now reaching outside of their bubble so for example at amazon the movement for justice there within the company spans warehouse workers who are laboring under absolutely ghastly and what should be unlawful conditions and tech workers. Whose initial concern was surveillance and climate. But who discovered that they could not make progress nor could they feel good about their movement unless incorporated the labor concerns of these people at the bottom of the ladder at the company.

How Will Climate And Health Policy Look Under Biden?

"An episode from the npr politics podcast about how climate and health policy might look under the incoming biden administration. Enjoy hey there is the npr politics. Podcast i should ask oh. I covered the white house from scott. Detroit biden transition. I'm jennifer ludden. I added gene environment. So jennifer ludden. You're here joining us. Thanks so much for talking with us. Hello hello i so joe. Biden has over and over emphasized climate as a central part of his administration. We're going to get into what that really means. But first let's start with what the last four years have looked like for climate policy because it really hasn't existed right jennifer. Well it's been very active sort of like in the reverse. I mean you know after going from president. Obama trump was like whiplash. And we're kind of head you know reverse whiplash again all those actions. That obama took in eight years. We have seen dozens and dozens of rollbacks of them. You know there was the paris climate accord of course and then Rules to bring down carbon emissions in power plants to make cars more fuel efficient To restrict development of wetlands and so forth. A lot of this has been challenged. You know we've had a lot of court cases and the trump administration has lost some of those but some are ongoing and you know another Maybe lasting climate legacy of president trump will be all the conservative court appointees he had including three in the supreme court which is where some of these Contested rules may end up but to be frank. Climate action has never really measured up to what scientists say. We've needed right. It's it's we as a country have fallen shore true. I know so much You know obama had so many fights about getting his measures passed and they're really inadequate. But i will say so much has changed in the past four years. It's pretty remarkable. I'm we have been sort of hanging out in limbo reverse but the rest of the world and a lot of us cities and states have just been on fast forward You have seen countries. City states Businesses industry utility companies established. These incredibly ambition as ambitious goals of not only reducing carbon emissions but trying to go for zero carbon in the next few decades. This has been driven by a major shift in public opinion. Huge ramp up. In extreme weather disasters more americans are feeling this viscerally in their lives wa the hurricanes the fires the heat. And so you know. It's pretty clear that just bringing back what obama had managed to pass is not going to be nearly enough. And that's the way that that biden talked about this throughout the campaign and it's the way that the various advisers and Cabinet picks and cabinet level special positions is created are viewing this like the overwhelming view of the people who will be setting policy is the world is on the clock. The us has wasted years on this effort and they need to radically overhaul the entire power sector over a decade and a half and then keep going and totally transformed the country's economy by twenty fifty and that's basically to almost the bare minimum of what is needed according to experts to stave off the worst of a warming planet. When you look at you know how you're going to deal with this issue. Obviously you have the power sector which is a huge amount of the carbon comes from that you also have the transportation. The way we fuel our cars and trucks that comes from fossil fuels. What is biden looking to do. Is he going to phase out all coal. We're going to go to auburn noble energy. We all know that you know. The sun doesn't shine all the time. When doesn't blow all the time. How does that work and in president trump would always say you know. I can watch cable because the wind's not blowing honey. Some of these fast forward are more straightforward than others right like just to take vehicles and and emissions that's an area where it is pretty straightforward and You have. I wouldn't even call it. Reluctant agreement right from a lot. Lot of big auto manufacturers is that fair to say jennifer like it's kind of like acceptance of like yes yes in conjunction with states like california and the federal government. Which has the right to do this getting back. On pace to having stricter emissions higher mileage standards so cars are using less gasoline and then hopefully sooner rather than later aren't using gasoline

COVID-19 Relief Bill Could Stave Off Historic Wave Of Evictions

"Unless there's more help from congress coming. Millions of americans who rent their homes could be evicted in the middle of the winter. We don't know if the covid relief bill will be approved. Congress negotiated for seven months struck a deal and then the president called it a disgrace. But what's in this legislation that could help renters. Npr's chris. arnold has been looking into. Good morning chris. hey oil. what's in the relief bill. That could help people from being evicted. Well there's twenty five billion dollars for rental assistance. We haven't seen that before. And that goes to states and cities renders apply. The money goes to the landlords. And the money's supposed to go to people who need it. The most based on recent income the bill also extends unemployment benefits and twelve million. Americans are set to lose those unemployment benefits the day after christmas. That would just be a colossal disaster. So avoiding that prevents a lot of addictions to i talked to christina resolves with texas hauser's. It's a low income housing nonprofit and it's in texas where we've seen thousands of victims happening already. She says this bill is a big help. it will provide relief to millions of people who've been struggling to pay rent. Tenants can qualify for up to fifteen months of rental assistance. So tenants who are behind six seven eight. Nine months of rent could be covered by. What's in this bill. She says that twenty five billion dollars is not going to be enough. That's gonna need to be replenished but you know it's a good start also there's a question mark. How long will this take to get up and running. And that's going to depend a lot on the state and the city. Now this bill is i understand. It also extends in order from the c. d. c. That's supposed to prevent evictions because that is a bad thing to happen during pandemic but it only extends it for a month through the end of january. He's really going to help. I think the hope from the housing advocates here is that once the biden administration gets in that this will get extended further into the future and also strengthened because the cdc orders a little flimsy. And and it's not working a lot of places. People are still getting evicted. The cdc could also extend this by itself with doesn't need another act of congress also. Interestingly the rules of the rental assistance program appear to require that the renter is still in. The property has not been evicted yet. So that creates a pretty powerful incentive not to kick people out. If i'm a landlord. And i'm owed five months of back rent. That's a strong incentive to keep the person there so you put all this together. It's a pretty powerful package. That should help a lot of people. You've been talking to people who are at risk of eviction or who are going to show a lot of background. Tell me what you've been hearing. Well i talked to one person in seattle who after losing her job as a hairstylist. Owes ten thousand dollars in back rent. It's definitely a relief for me. That's on a braxton husband also had his hours cutback and they've got two kids. I mean obviously the timing is significant just because it is christmas this week so i just able to be like okay like we can still get certain things for christmas. We can do this. We'll still be okay. We're still going to be afloat. And what about landlords. Who haven't been getting rent money. How are they reacting well. Landlords have been complaining throughout the pandemic that looked like these various eviction moratoriums. But who's going to pay the rents if the tenants not paying the rent. Well now there's twenty five billion dollars to pay the rent and landlord groups. That i talked to are very happy about that. The bill though as we've been reporting has hit this last minute. Snag that the president's but attacking it so we're just going to have to see what happens there for sure. Npr's chris arnold. Thanks chris we appreciate it. Thanks and well

UN Mideast Envoy Nickolay Mladenov; Celebrating Hanukkah

"In two thousand fifteen. Former bulgarian minister of defense and farm minister. Nikolai mladenov was appointed by then. Un secretary general bunk moon to serve as the special coordinator for the middle east peace process since then. Nikolai has served with distinction. Doggedly working to stave off conflict escalations to speak up against comas. terror and to speak up for palestinian needs. Nikolai will soon be leaving his post and he has graciously agreed to join us now on people of the pod to share his thoughts before he does nikolai. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having now. You and i recorded a podcast interview. Two and a half years ago at the ajc global forum two thousand eighteen in jerusalem. Your very first answer began. And i quote right now. There is practically no peace process because there are no talks were very far from the conditions. Which would make such talks meaningful and to add an additional complication to that the palestinians. The americans don't talk to each other unless i'm mistaken. You could answer this first question in a similar way today. What are the prospects right now for israeli palestinian peace. Well if i had to ended my answer two years later i will delete the word practically everything else stats because there is no peace process. I don't think either. The palestinian or the israeli side are in a position to initiate meaningful discussions on issues. That would actually lead to sustainable solution to the conflict. Of course the palestinian hopeful that was the new american administration. Coming in this will change. I would argue that. What is important are the conditions on the ground. Firstly leadership on both sides for their own reasons different reasons for their own reasons is not in a position to initiate such discussions. Secondly i think the region has shifted in a different direction with different threats. The region has identified as more of a priority. And thirdly i think demands a very serious effort by the international community to create the conditions that are necessary to sustain such meaningful negotiations. Would i were argue. Is that right now. Both sites needs to do unilaterally some positive confidence building measures so that some of the trust that is nice. Sue for negotiations to be meaningful can be rebuilt. And there's a lot of stuff that can be done by both. Israel is under postseasons to that when last we spoke. You also said that. The situation in gaza to which i know you've paid a tremendous amount of attention and invested a tremendous amount of time. You said that that situation was extremely desperate. Has life improved at all for the people living in gaza. I don't think i can say that. It has improved. I think it's actually on a number of fronts become much worse with covert democ now. In fact only a couple of weeks ago we came up with some new research which we published and tens of thousands of gaza have lost their jobs because of the economic socio economic crisis caused by the virus endemic. We've seen a rapid increase in the number of people who need food assistance and a healthcare system in gaza which is on the verge of collapse. It is only managing to do with the cases that now the coronavirus cases that it has because of the extensive assistance the un in coordination with israel and with the palestinians provides to hospitals. Be that ventilators face masks desk kids. Whatever is necessary but no live. there hasn't improved and the only way that you can see. Life in gaza. Improving is if you have a combination of the following factors. One is the legitimate palestinian authority. Government comes back in takes control from hamas islamic jihad not various militants. Dinner there so that they put weapons into their control and reduce the risk security risk on the grounds secondly that israel reopened some of the closings on gaza in terms of limitations. What can go in. Because of the fear that julius materials that go into gaza get used for rockets or other terror related activities. Pick and that is. How lights can normalize but sadly we're more in a state right now off preventing wards and actually trying to build a sustainable peace as far as gaza is concerned have been many attempts to restart internal palestinian negotiations. All of them sadly failed the title of the job that you are preparing to leave is special coordinator for the middle east peace process. I know that often middle east peace process refers just to this kind of one long running conflict in one corner of the middle east. So does your remit nikolai. Does it touch on any of this kind of news. Between israel and arab states. my job title was invented. I don't think there was any there. Were any other conflicts in the middle east and this was the goal to conflicts for everyone. Since then they've been too many. And i wish there would be a general middle east peace process if you wish that involves all the countries in the region from libya to yemen to iraq and lebanon syria. Whatever lives who have my remits currently is on the israeli palestinian fronts. Only however i think that if you look more strategically how to resolve this really frozen conflict if you wish between israelis and the palestinians you tune in to bring the arabs it and this is something that we've been arguing for way back before even president obama's time the quartet it's national quartet needs to open up and engage with the arabs more openly and more constructively and perhaps in the future that will be more possible because of the abraham accords. Andy situation which you have now. I've been a strong advocate of bringing in the arab countries because i think in the current strategic and geopolitical environment neighboring benefits to all sides and to the region as a whole their key to stability and to promoting tolerance in the middle east they are critical to creating economic opportunities of engagement between israel and the gulf states trade tourism culturally -education exchanges. Their critical if you wish to supporting the palestinian authority in terms of funding and donations the un's activities on the coronavirus on any as crisis that we have so their strategic partners and swap. My term care. I've spent a substantial part of my time. Travelling to the gulf to egypt to jordan to other arab countries constantly briefing them consulting with them and bringing them. It's just a few months ago. When the annexation was still an issue of public debates in israel. I made it very clear publicly. That israel has a choice either to go down. The road of annexation which would have been against international law would create all kinds of security and other problems on the ground and would have alienated the arab countries or go down the road of normalization which actually creates opportunities for the future. And really glad that that's where we are today.

French President Macron isolating after positive coronavirus test

"Steve Inskeep. Good morning. Emmanuel Macron. The president of France has tested positive for the coronavirus. MPR's Eleanor Beardsley is in Paris. Hi, Eleanor. Hi, stave. How is he? Well, he said to be fine so far, but he has some symptoms and the Elysee Palace is that's why I gotta test this morning. He's going to be isolating for a week, and he's continuing his schedule of meetings today but by videoconference, and obviously he's canceled his lunch for today. Now his wife, French first lady Brigitte Macron, is also in isolation. She's a bit older than he is. She's 67 My call is 42. You know, French media is all abuzz now about who he could have gotten it from and who we may have given it to, and the French prime minister has already gone into isolation. And so has the Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, who had lunch with Macron on Monday. He's said to be isolating until Christmas Eve. Okay. How seriously had the French president been taking the virus? Steve very seriously. He's had different approach than some of the other world leaders who have gotten it like Boris Johnson, British Prime minister. Our President Donald Trump and the Brazilian president. Fireball so narrow to name a few. They were very cavalier. They even poo pooed it. They never wore masks. Macron is always seen wearing a mask. You know, he's stressed that every decision he's made has been with huddling with the country's top scientist, Steve not really not not literally huddling then when good, but anyway, you talks with them going exactly And you know, France has been one of the hardest hit countries in the world and in Europe right after Italy and Britain with deaths, it's been bad. The country's just come out of a second national lockdown that reduced the daily rate from 60,000 to 14,000 cases a day. But people are still being urged to take precaution. There's an eight PM overnight curfew now, in effect, people are being told where your mask at the Christmas dinner table, you know you go outside. You don't see anybody who's not wearing a mask, even outside in the streets. And I think you know, the Elise a palace is emphasizing the fact that macron someone extremely careful who's closely watch. He's still got it. That means the virus is still out there circulating everyone is vulnerable circulating. Although 14,000 cases a day that's a much lower rate than the United States, even when you adjust for population and so forth, Francis Not in the worst position in the world, but still here they are with the president. Testing positive are the French authorities in a position to distribute a vaccine soon as we're seeing in the United States and Britain and elsewhere, well, watching that going on in the U. S and Britain everybody wants to hear the government has outlined his strategy. Elderly homes, first health care workers to By the end of the spring, it says, you know, all non vulnerable public will be vaccinated. You know, the European Medicines agency. That's the use equivalent to the FDA has not approved of icing the vaccine, the father buying tech vaccine, It's going to be done soon. France already has more than a million doses on order for the end of December. The EU and macron they want to for that. You two start vaccinating, you know, simultaneously altogether very important Symbolic. Germany has mentioned the date of December 27th so it may be taking place around them. But in the French case, they're just saying, we have our own process. We want to be careful. Here. We need a few more days and weeks. Is that right? Well, it's the European Medicines Agency that has to to to approve this vaccine, and everyone is waiting on that right now, and people are starting to trumpet the bed. It needs to happen soon. But you know, everyone is told him to told to be very careful until the vaccine comes. But it is being promised this month. They're gonna began vaccinating Eleanor. Thanks. Thank you, Steve. That's NPR's Eleanor

Yesterday's a jack boone's who's a professor in the department of ece fisa goal in planetary sciences unto colorado boulder. He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack. Benny come back to talk about the radio. Frequency of savitri on the far side of the more that you're designing you bet sounds good. This is a scientific sense. Podcast providing unscripted conversations bit leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics. You like to sponsor this podcast. Please reach out to in full at scientific sense dot com back Jack you're talking about upcoming missions to the moon Some of the manned mission some of some of the technology that you're sending up there there is a gateway bridges like the space station but attested propulsion its zone. Sorta are based entity source. And it's more dealer things could be attached to it. That may be subject is imploding. Creating that a launchpad so to speak to go to mars perhaps habitats that a large announced a mining for water mighty for hydrogen and other things and so he the program is called autonomous. So could be portal light program and underneath optimists. There are various things being planned right. So what are the The primary objectives all of those radius approved betas projects. I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be

All right thanks for. Thanks for stopping by how you doing. Good i think is good as you can be in this world. We speaking of good. We are a few hours removed from this. I don't know if it's an official announcement but a quasi-official announcement. There will be an australian open. Looks like it's going to start every eighth three weeks of pushback from your perspective. Good thing bad thing. When did you hear what do you make of this announcement. I mean i think it's whenever you can play. You know it's a good thing. And i think the tennis world Has done a pretty good job of trying to play and keep the players safe I think the us open the catalyst. And i think or probably appreciating more. Now what the. Us open did seeing how difficult it has been with the australian open. So i think i think the. Us open really started. Everything engage some confidence players. and then You know and then you know what's happening with. The australian open is is pretty incredible minutes many every day.

We're trying to keep everybody updated in real time And that's players coaches parents. Lot of anxiety. I you thought your company. You had to get ready really quick because the i was you thought you were going to need to leave on december fourteenth and that was eating up people didn't know when do i take my vacation. Especially the guys that were playing late on now all of a sudden you're not rushing. It's it's even later so you know. Tennis players are creatures of habit.

Nineteen the un's emergency relief. Chief said on. Tuesday mark lowcock said that the global health crisis had impacted dramatically. People already reeling from conflict record levels of displacement and climate change sharks he said that multiple famines were also looming and that the un and partners were overwhelmed. They hate your we are presenting. Is the bleakest dockage perspective on humanitarian aid period. Ahead that we have ever sat towns. I think is a reflection of fact. That's a has reached on across the whole of the most fragile unbundled boundaries on the planet this year's global humanitarian sets out plans to reach one hundred sixty million of the most vulnerable people in fifty six countries.

"Is. That is going to go and I think that we will have fundamentally fewer INS at the end of this at the beginning of this because there businesswomen's are simply not viable if they can't feel the business class overflight because people have just got used to doing these meetings online. At I've the decision not to close but many say licensing was basically the into chocolate shop. My Ten PM is designed to triumph stop that industry from. Dying out to let's not underestimate the economic changes the outgoing going to be brought in by the fact that this is coming in. Again, the fact is businesses. Are we thinking we big expensive ran on this office block in the Square Mall let's get out of our nets shifter passenger. Most people work from home and the only thing comes back to that Jerry Lyons cover story on the dangerous and London you look at this. I mean how long and the governments will always money into supporting arts. How long until cultural venues are going to be also reopen how? Are you going to be to? A draw opera house. Again, all of these things now seem a very long way off the fact that you're talking about six months and the clear vision of a statement is this is what we're doing now and we'll probably need to be more later that obviously does have very profound economic implications. Now. Katie in the midst of all, this is easy to forget that it's actually Labor's virtual conference this week as well and today kissed Ahmed new leader mid is headlined speech was on the things that he said in it So it's definitely very values focused speech from the Labour leader. It went exactly as planned. Given the he chose to give in doncaster, but it was to an empty hall I. Think it was in an old museum anthony you don't really have anyone that. Thing I'd twelve people in the entire buildings he was speaking to a crowd money at party conference. You have your whole political community that and you supporters need bring everyone together and it's almost a rallying moment i. think it's hard to do that in Thomson online message. He also had to change a times they went to nine in the morning probably Stacey such big news anchoring the virus. But I think as features go I think it does hit a fatty successful speech and it wasn't really one which has had many negative effects. I think probably in terms of the punchy moments he spoke he seemed say that Unilever had deserved to these last election and said, it was wrong I think it was interesting is the having people in Labor he did do this aftermath the result to blame the electorate. was as electrical problem for not waiting Labor, which might fist statement was obvious but I think it was punched him to say it out to our national security. He isn't fatty personal attacks and Boris Johnson he talks about the difference between having Boris. Johnson, not we've seen. No, he is different verse. Johnson is trying to flesh was and you can see him pointing to his background to suggest he was more of A. Competent has buzzword.
