"Time. Yes and are fun. Fact for the day is that dinosaurs don't seem to fifty quote unquote rules about how animals change in colder climates. What does that mean so. There are two specific rules. At least that. I've heard of maybe the two more common ones that people refer to as like was the difference between an animal that grows up in polar colder climate. Compared to one that's closer to the equator and a warmer climate and bergman's rule and allen's rule bergman's rule was made by carl bergmann in about eighteen forty seven or eighteen forty eight in eighteen. Forty eight he published quote on the relation of the heat economy of animals to their size and quote but as a translation from the original german. So it was depending on your size. You might be warmer yet. It's that's like heat economy. You can think of like efficiency so basically it said that animals got more massive as they were in colder climates because they have a lower surface to volume ratio. Which helps you keep your heat in. So if you imagine like for example a radiator has like thins really thin fins to cool off the thinner. Something is the quicker. It can dissipate heat so basically if it puts a bunch of bulk but has the same sort of surface area. It's like i guess the difference between like an ice cube melting in something which is sort of thicker and has more mass than if you had like a real thin sheet of ice. It would melt more quickly because they can interact with the environment faster through conduction and convection. If you want to get into thermodynamics but specifically his rule was basically that as you get closer to the polls or really in colder climates. You get animals that are larger and you can either apply that to groups like you can say. Penguins is very typical example because galapagos was really small. Those are the farthest north. I believe i think thing with our only in the southern hemisphere.

"Was collected in one thousand nine hundred five during an excavation by western paleontological laboratories in the bone cabin quarry west in wyoming and. that's in the morrison formation. The holiday type includes an incomplete skull and lower jaws and parts of the skeleton. Chevrons guess stralia fragments all humour. I fibula metatarsal. 's complete right foot as good. Yeah especially that. It has part of a skull and a whole bunch of the body. Yes what the skull is not that well no so incomplete on the less complete end of the spectrum just depends what you're comparing it to so in the holiday was i found. It was thought to be saluis for jealous that was in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight by miles and others and then kenneth carpenter and others named tenny collapsed in two thousand five. The reason probably for some of the confusion is other partial. Skeletons that were found nearby included saluis and ornithological so carpenter and others compared the fossils and said no this dinosaurs sulfurous or or nfl. St's of all the known theropods. In the morrison formation ten collateral is most similar to sulfurous. But it's more primitive carpenter and all wrote quote small theropods during the late ask were clearly more diverse than previously realized and quote. There's a pair type of tanny collaterals that includes an incomplete hand found in the bone cabin quarry in wyoming and henry. Osborne have referred to it as an ornithologist. Hermann i in nineteen. Oh three. There's also a referred primax ila that was previously thought to be stokes a soroush cleveland. I that was since nineteen seventy four and it had been found along with an william in the cleveland. Lloyd corey in utah. But there's no william known for tanny calamitous so they couldn't compare them to be sure some dystopia pubis founding colorado where referred to solaris in nineteen twenty. Charles gilmore a now. They're not thought to be the type species is ten collapse. Top wilson i and the genus name. Tanny collaterals means long limb hunter or stretched out lim. Hunter lanky hunter here. It's based on the fact that tanny collapsed has longer four limbs in hind limbs compared to slurs and the species. Name top wilson. I as an honor of george quote unquote top wilson from the paper. It said that he is retired. United states marine corps. He is also the father of a benefactor who supported the research so thousands of them. The holiday type of tanny correa was sabadell. It was about eleven feet or three point three meters long. but the pre mac silla found in the cleveland. Lloyd corey was part of an individual estimated to be thirteen feet four meters long and estimated to weigh two hundred sixty pounds or one hundred twenty kilograms. That sounds much bigger than salinas. Which was more like velociraptor size. And i think under fifty pounds. It's probably one of the reasons they decided it was a separate genera. Yeah this is way way. Bigger even as a sub adult is a good reason. It's actually unclear how big and adult could get because the age of that pre sula specimen is unclear so maybe a guy even bigger. Yeah you can see tanny collapsed. At the north american museum of ancient life in lehi utah in it also appears in jurassic world alive. The really added a lot of dinosaurs to that game. Yeah heavier recent dies are the day. Are there good if you play it. You learn about a wide variety of dinosaurs them. I think that's where some of our requests come from two people seeing them in that game and some of them are really realistic. Add feathers and stuff. I'm like in the movies that the movies were realistic for the time. Yes and are fun.

"I do want to quickly exploited though because he said what about smaller dinosaurs okay. There's a sort of taking spinosaurus and the just expanding that out. Extrapolating it to all theropods like we'll spinosaurus was aquatic and therefore all theropods. That was the logic going on there. Spinosaurus hotly debated exactly. And i mean even the people who think spinosaurus was the most aquatic. Don't think that it was completely incapable of doing anything on land and it wasn't around at the end of the cretaceous anyway so it doesn't make any so like you suggested the game so the quick summary of the sore pod game is that you're launching a sore pod to its mating lake so there's a sore pod waiting in a lake or near a lake and you either have to get to that lake or knocked the other pod into the lake and then land in the lake with or pod. I i know you went into the back story and how they probably weren't mating and lakes and all that but what's not forget the fact that this game makes it that you can launch zora pod easily from a catapult. Was a slingshot slingshot. Yeah you're sling shotting sore pods so obviously. This is not scientifically accurate. But as i think it's meant to be tongue in cheek like this claim is really un scientifically accurate so let's make a really unscientific accurate game fun at it. Although the way they land looks uncomfortable they do like rag doll physics basically so it like the neck goes all nimbly been believed in the legs golf flinging around and everything so they often land kind of awkward crumpled sort of rally or their. Its neck is literally bent backwards. Yeah 'cause i mean it's like rag doll physics if you played a game where like the people go limp lopping all over the place the same kind of thing but with the sewer pods and it's kind of helpful too because you have to launch them through narrow spaces sometimes and i don't even know if they could fit through some of them without sort of crumpling up a little bit but it's really enjoyable. I'd say it's thirty minutes to an hour of game. Play finished the whole game. Yeah i while sitting next to you. I showed it to sabrina. I'm going just play the whole game. There's a bonus to it which is finding and squishing a turtle in every level. See i thought the game was pretty cool until garrett pointed out this bonus. Do they have to add this. And that's when i stopped paying attention is pretty enjoyable. There's i think there's only twelve levels so it's like it's a fun thing to do for a half hour to an hour. It's built on unity and runs natively on html five to which means there's no javascript garbage required so it means you just play in your browser. Yup it's pretty fun. L. of lincoln our show notes on our website. If you want to try out the game you get anything for finishing the game. It gives you little achievement. Sort of things. Like i think it was like copulating colossus for completing all the levels for the squishing all the turtles it says like turtle nachos from what i could tell it. Was you watch the sore part and then as long as both sewer pods were in some kind of water you finish that level. Exactly a little hearts come out of the pod. It's pretty enjoyable highly recommended. I don't know about the turtle part. It's good feces. And now onto our dinosaur of the day tanny collateral which was a request from knocked von doom vr patriotic discord. So thanks ten. Collateral was a basal saloon sore theropod that lived in the way jurassic in what is now the us and it was found in a few places. It looks like a typical theropod with the shorter arms. And the long tail had a large skull and long lightly built legs as you probably know because it was a theropod. It was carnivorous unless the thera zena sore. But this isn't good point. The holiday type of tanny collateral was collected in one thousand nine hundred five during an excavation by western paleontological laboratories in the bone cabin quarry west in wyoming and..

"There's a couple of transformers movies where they're all dinosaur And those are better than the other transformer movies see but speaking of game at news. Why because i wasn't a game but media news we have a game review of lemme splash soro pods. Oh yeah sore. So a. r. Because you have him soar through exactly is sort of like angry birds with pods that you latch and thanks to its tyrant king for sharing this with us. On dischord elan geared. Had a great time playing. This is pretty fun. But i do want to explain why this game exists. Because why would you be launching pods across a map like angry. Birds demands explanation. Because why not there is an actual reason. So it's inspired by brian. J ford's highly disputed book about aquatic dinosaurs. Our just talking about spinosaurus but all sorts of dinosaurs including sewer pods and smaller theropods. All sorts of stuff quite dinosaurs were a popular opinion about one hundred fifty years ago in those those famous pictures of like sore pods and marshes and all sorts of charleston depictions. Yeah so this is like you know late. Eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds but ford's book was published in two thousand eighteen. So a little bit after. The scientific consensus had been reached. Dinosaurs were largely land. Living animals The most quoted line from his book is that dinosaurs went extinct due to a quote unquote lack of sex lakes and the hypothesis. Being that sore pods were too heavy to mate on land so they made lakes and then i guess after the end of the cretaceous there were no lakes and therefore dada sores. Went extinct why they couldn't use an ocean or a river or some other body of water. And where all the lakes went also. The smaller navien dinosaurs. Yes i mean. I think it's certainly possible that's pods might have made it in a lake. You know i could see if we did a biomechanical study. And it was like oh. The legs of the animal was too heavy to support itself. Plus another animal on. Its back or something to that effect. One could come to that inclusion but from what we know. Sore pods laid eggs on land far from bodies of water in a lot of cases. And so that doesn't really seem to make a lot of animals that made in the ocean and then lay eggs on land tended to it like right on the sand really close to the water. So it's weird. There is like an explanation about how dinosaur footprints are usually found in sand. And like where do you find sand. It's in the ocean but we find it in mud in all sorts of other things all the time to issues where footprints are found and then the laying eggs like the eggs are laid near the footprints and he had he says that eggs are laid on land but there next to the footprints was supposed to be in the one anyway. There's a huge number of flaws in the argument which is why the book is so disputed and as far as i can tell for. Its claims have never been pure reviewed just written in a book because as we know anybody can read a book. They're not nearly as scientifically rigorous as pure view journals. Are i mean a lot of books. Do reference a lot of journal articles the written by the same people right pure review journal articles and those can be fantastic books. But they're never scrutinized. Rarely scrutinize to the same extent that a review journal article is which is why we like to stick to those and as a result of that the book currently sits at two and a half stars on good reads on a scale of one to five with one being by far the most common. Anyway i did do a little digging to try to validate that. It hasn't been peer reviewed. I could only find one specific publication on topic by forward in two thousand twelve in the magazine laboratory news. But i can't find the information on peer review because the original article was taken down and usually journals will list a retraction in place. But in this case there's just a page not found error interesting so it it seems like not a very pure review journal type publication. Because they don't do that kind of thing. It's just sort of covering up a mistake rather than actually trying to advance the science. So under the game okay..

"It's amazing so it just seems like such a cool fauna and had a really key point in time. Eighty five million years ago where we don't have a ton of stuff that i really hope that you know people get out there and find some new stuff because it. It seems like a great place to do some paleontology. Although i'm not sure about the quality of the fossils because a lot of these when i was saying like hadrosaurs hip salafi aunts. That's as close as they could get to the actual species through fragmentary. Exactly a lot of it's like a single bone or it's like a piece of bone and they're like oh that's curved in a way that we think it's probably a hat or sewer but it's not enough to get much more specific so it's possible that the reason we don't have a whole bunch of paleontology going on here is that the quality of the fossils is just not exciting enough so people would rather work in other places. I'm not sure it's just too difficult to identify. Yeah but they named one yeah that was previously unidentified so it. Maybe things are changing. Yeah hopefully i also need to go into my paper on the kyle or because it's pretty excited. The title of this one is the first definitive and kyla saurian dinosaur from the cretaceous of g lynn province northeastern china and it was written by wednesday jong and others and published in cretaceous research so the jalen province is the second farthest northeast province in china. So it's in that little upper piece on the northeastern end is northeast. Liaoning which we talk about all the time l. Yeah so many fossils come out of there is a ton from leading but there are very few from jalen yet so far exactly. This dinosaur was actually found near the northeast end of the border with north korea. And his indy. Yan korean autonomous prefecture and the city is yanji that was found in or found closest to as the title implies there are ankylosaurs that were found in other areas of china.

"It's probably the most popular group of raptors. I would presume so it could be really useful. I hope that there's more stuff to find in this area. Because we don't have a ton of eighty five million year old stuff obviously. This is filling twenty nine year old gap and there is a ton of dinosaur fines from that area that i just most of it's written in russian. So is time. I was wishing i knew russian so i could read through these papers but fortunately there is a book by l. a. s. off in russian which title translates as dinosaurs of northern. Eurasia new data about assemblages ecology paleo biogeography perfect yes and by northern eurasia basically talking about eastern europe. How we call it in the us. At least it was written in nineteen ninety-five and it accounts for most of the dinosaur finds listed in the pale database. If you go through there you just see this reference over and over and over and over and over again. It's not the original paper that described it but i think it might be the most recent one that was in english because it got translated to english i think shortly after maybe at the same time that was published in russian and they explained like we want people that speak english speak other languages and don't know russian to be able to learn about all these finds in this area. Oh good yeah so. Obviously it was helpful for the people putting together the paleobiology database but also for people like me. Because i've found a section of that paper because it's free to access. That show is the area in two. Gecas dan and tashkent. Which is just across those pakistan border and that includes a ton of late cretaceous dinosaur theropods so this is still in that same fergana valley for theropods they talked about an unidentified remains ohrid. Which presumably is dromaeosaur in this paper. You're eight because he said it was found in the sixties. Do about it exactly for some of them. They gave other papers. And they referenced like the author the named and other times for the unidentified remains or it was a little more vague. So it's kind of hard. They don't have specimen numbers in the papers. So it's a little bit hard to nail down for some of them. But i'm guessing that is this paper so we have now identified it. They'll talk about an allosaur type bone. at least that's how it was described in nineteen twenty five ness offset is possibly a tyrannosaur and that's house listed on the paleobiology database. They're also ornate the my meds. There are what we're called stegosaurs in nineteen thirty nine but off said are actually probably kyla. There is a hadrosaur several hadrosaur bones.

"Age it is but again they only found one bone which is a single entry or in other words the lower jaw so like half of the lower jaw but in dinosaurs especially theropods. Weren't always fused in the front. So that's how they could tell how they gonna tell what did it was velociraptor link. I think it was based on a few things so they saw that has twelve tooth sockets which is a good clue in and of itself also. The size of it is pretty small. They're also looked to be too on erupted teeth in it so i'm not sure because unfortunately the article is in russian and it's behind a paywall. I couldn't figure out how to buy it. I was trying to like the whole log. In thing was in russian. It was too difficult. So eventually i gave up so i was basic this on other articles and based on the abstract but they might have done a cat scan to look at what appear to be. Two on erupted. Teeth and teeth are really good. Wait identified dinosaur. So if they could see. The details of teeth erupted. Maybe they could identified as a velociraptor in in that way and didn't mention the article so it was written by. Aol varian of an av. Lopatin and published in the reports of the russian academy of sciences earth science. There were also a couple other unique things that i think either help define it as a velociraptor in or a little bit as its own species and had a pretty strong curve up at the front and back of the jaw so it has sort of just a rounded lower jaw. You don't see that in all theropods. Sometimes they sort of slowed down a little bit frontier. They flat out not in this case. And then there's also a very small bump for chin which i did not even notice until they saw the picture where there's like an arrow to it and it's like there's the chin like i guess this is like a little tidy but it looks like a pimple almost like that size on the and but when it was covered in skin yeah never know how big it got like puffed out with carrington or whatever on top of it may be more likely but yeah it was really hard to estimate the size from just the jaw but it is roughly about two meters long day said which will make it similar to velociraptor and additionally since it's just a job it's also pretty hard to tell what it was so maybe that wasn't a maximum size. Can't be certain about that but file genetically a jaws a pretty good to us. This is partly why assume they had a tooth because physi- jaw without teeth. It might not be as useful. But they think it sits between the early cretaceous dynamic and the late cretaceous akiro raptor and velociraptor. So from the press. Release the way they put it is. It's filling in a twenty million year gap in the fossil record between those two groups within velociraptor. Rene which is a fairly small group has ten velociraptor type dinosaurs including the loss of raptor. So it's probably the most popular group of raptors. I would presume so it could be really useful. I hope that there's more stuff to find in this area. Because we don't have a ton of eighty five million year old stuff obviously. This is filling twenty nine year old gap and there is a ton of dinosaur.

"tajikistan" Discussed on I Know Dino: The Big Dinosaur Podcast

"I know dino before we get into the news you. I get to say today. Have a quick correction one of our listeners. Who grew up in san antonio and texas very kindly told us that we've been pronouncing the witty museum incorrectly. It's pronounced witty not wit. So we will keep that in mind for going forward. Hopefully we get to spell w. itt which seems like it'd be wit or maybe white. But i would have never got witty. So thank you so jumping into the news as always we like to kick it off with a new dinosaur. Didn't even mention this at the beginning. I should have one kyle. L. what are we even doing. It's a new theropod also known as a raptor and it is in fact velociraptor sized so you can even say it's like a new velociraptor type dinosaur not even be stretching the truth much. It's from tajikistan which is northeast of afghanistan. She's not familiar. The bone was actually originally found and the bone. Being there is only one bone. Unfortunately that was founded. This dinosaur was found in the nineteen sixties. And it's from an area called the fergana valley. The forgotten valley covers northern tadzhikistan and parts of ouzbekistan and curious dan this sort of wrap around each other in a really interesting way in that spot or two deacons kinda sticks up but is this round spot. So it is not huge. It's maybe like one hundred or two hundred miles in diameter. i would say this valley and it has quite a few late cretaceous. Dinosaur fines l. Nice yeah. I was surprised because i've never heard of the fergana valley before. I'm not even sure. I'm pronouncing right. Because i couldn't find a pronunciation guide for it and i don't think we've ever talked about it on our podcast before i did go through the paleobiology database and poked around at a whole bunch of points and found that there were tons of cretaceous things there and just outside of that valley. It looks like there's some jurassic stuff so maybe like the valley filled in with some newer more recent material mountains got worn down more around it or something like that. But in the paleobiology database i had. I didn't see any fines or articles from the last fifteen years. So i do think it's the first time we've mentioned the area on our show which is pretty cool. It's a new area that hadn't heard about who the new raptors named consign nathan and kansai nathan means jaw from kansai. And that's because area where it's found was kansai so we see all the time. Sometimes we pronounce it. Mathis just depends on. The species. name is saga d-minus after saadia which is an ancient civilization that encompassed the fergana valley. So is a lot bigger than the fergana valley but it included it. So it sort of place names horace playstation and says but the genus is a smaller place and the species is a larger place which is a little unusual. Usually it goes the other way. It's also the first named one of that area. Yeah i think. I was trying to confirm that on on the paleo bio database to see if there are any like unique dinosaurs named from the area. But it's hard to tell exactly since you can't really filter by region like i can't put in the fergana valley and i wanted to do it by like a geographical feature rather than by country. Because they're all jumbled up in that spot the borders are sorta zigzagging and you know it's sort of like defining the differently montana and canada. It's like it's the same rocks doesn't really matter if it's from northern montana southern canada like the dinosaurs didn't care they were all co existing regardless so i couldn't quite tell if this is the only one from the fergana valley but i think you're right. I think it might be the only one from that region of tajikistan which has been named certainly the only one in any recent history. The find is from the santoni ian which is about eighty five million years ago. The santoni unfortunately is very short. Stage is only like two or three million years long so we have a pretty good paul park and what age it is but again they only found one bone which is a single entry or in other words the lower jaw so like half of the lower jaw but in dinosaurs especially theropods..

Kyrgyzstan in Chaos After Protesters Seize Government Buildings

"Go to Kyrgyzstan's political crisis now, which appears to be deepening amid disputes among various factions as to who should be in control. The former Soviet state, which shares a border with China, to the east and Kazakhstan to the north. Tajikistan to its south is one of several experiencing upheaval. Pakistan's turmoil follows the annulment off Sunday's election results thie occupation of parliament on Tuesday by opposition groups. And the subsequent resignation off the prime minister. The president has called for all party talks. Police are on the streets in some neighborhoods in the capital Bishkek have formed vigilante groups amid fears of outbreaks of violence or looting. Both China and Russia have said they are very concerned about the situation. Let's speak to our reporter from BBC Kirghiz Alma's Charter of Almas. Let's just start by getting you to establish whether the protesters are still occupying government buildings that we still seeing considerable tension. Alma's Are you there? Can you hear us? Yes. So sorry. The line got lost a little bit. Okay. Just tell us other protesters still occupying buildings, Government buildings. Yes, it's a total political chaos right now. Protesters are still occupying political buildings, especially in the regions. Right now, the protesters are coming into regional government buildings mayor's offices and demanding the resignation off officials whereas in Bishkek visit's It was a lot quieter today, but the use we're back on the main square, demanding for a total change a total clear out off politics. Asians who were around in power in the past 2030 years and tell us what's happened with the interim Cabinet after the resignation of the prime minister. This is again very much disputed and unclear what is going on after the resignation off the prime minister, deputies held an emergency meeting at the hotel because the parliament building was destroyed during the storming off the building 60 for apparently 64 deputies participated. In the discussion, and they voted for a new prime minister yesterday night. However, today, many of the political groups disputed this claim. They have said that that the this kind off voting took place under the table, meaning it took many of the organised groups. Political groups did not know that that this kind of Voting would take place, and now there are almost three or four candidates for the prime minister's post, And it's unclear when the parliament deputies will meet again to vote on the Prime Minister Alma's A.

The Downing of PS752

"Hello and welcome to episode seventy-five seventy five of APP talk. I am passionate here as always with Jason Rabinowitz. Hi Ian. How's your New Year's? Hello Jason the New Year in personally. The New Year is off to a decent start but it has not been a good year so far now. The past two weeks at were recording on January fourteenth. The past two weeks has been a very long year. I'm done I'm happy to be done with twenty twenty already. All right. You're twenty twenty one hour bring it on. None of that's right. That's not how it works now. Okay I think we have to address reality all right. Well then then let us address reality a quick recap up the last two weeks and then we'll take things in order as has it works by piece the time so the year since we last recorded we've had a Falker. One hundred in Kazakhstan briefly left the ground and came back down skit along the side of the runway in impacted. A building thing that led to the first fatal accident of the year then there were missile launches from Iran into Iraq in retaliation for for the US killing in Iranian general that led to changes in. How Airlines were using the Airspace that same night. A Ukraine international airlines seven. Three seven was shot down while departing Tehran by Iranian surface to air missiles. All the while the seven three seven Max Saga continues with the additional release of documents since and messages between seventy seven pilots. That do not paint a pretty picture at all on the stranger side. Confederal state and local officials are hunting mystery drones in Colorado Nebraska and Wyoming and in not quite breaking news but happened happened earlier today. A Delta triple seven dumped fuel in return in preparation for emergency returned to Los Angeles and the Fuel Oh fell on a school playground so we have enough news in the first two weeks of the year to fill many episodes of the podcast. So we will I guess. Just start where. Where do we go from here? I don't WanNa know really do not want to know now. Well fortunately we have a bullet list that we sometimes read off of those. Just go top to bottom there. You go it okay. So on the seventh into the eighth of January January the Iranian military fired missiles towards a base that houses Iraqi at US troops in Iraq so is missiles caused some structural damage. And things like that but but no one was killed as far as is reporting. I I've seen what then happened was a quick succession of no temps issued the the coakley notice to airmen named long before So they kind of the anachronistic title but saying from the FAA saying don't fly over Iraq. Don't fly over. Iran don't fly over the Persian Gulf. And don't play over the Gulf Mont Right which only impacts airlines are based. I believe just based in the US which would impact very few if any fights. It's actually operating in that region right so at the beginning of the night after this happened it looked like there wasn't going to be much impact to who aviation because of this particular kind of retaliatory missile strikes and there were other airlines. That said we're GONNA follow those. It's an not necessarily follow the. FAA's prohibitions but we're we agree with them and we will also not fly over right. I think notably British Airways was one of if not the first I to make a u-turn and find another round right. They were coming up from. I believe it was a flight from one of the British Airways destinations in India back to London and they reached Kuwait to wait and decided that they were going to go through Saudi Arabia and Egypt rather than travel up through Iraq so as the night went on other airlines made made made changes to their flight paths and even earlier in the week. A few airlines had announced that they weren't going to fly over Ronnie in airspace notably Singapore her with announced on the sixth of January before the missile strikes that they would not be flying over around anymore. They moved their flights to the north up to you passing through kind of Azerbaijan and Tajikistan on their way to Singapore from their European destinations and it looked like there would be kind of a headache is for civil aviation concern to you no longer routings. Flights would have to fly around but there there there wouldn't be a huge impact right. This is all things. We've seen before their unfortunate geopolitics are annoying. Sometimes fights have to add had literally on top of already quite long flights. But it's still you work with it right and like we've talked about especially with the Pakistan India Afghanistan Afghanistan airspace closures in early twenty. Nine hundred thousand. These are things that the airlines are closely following. They're planning for. They have contingencies season. Things like that then in the early morning hours in Tehran a Ukrainian international airline seven three seven departed started and about two minutes after departure. We lost the DSP signal and then there started to be reports that the aircraft had crashed right it. I mean when we first started looking at the ads data is pretty clear that something absolutely catastrophic had happened extremely quickly as the data look normal like they were on their regular departure path from the airport like every other time in every other fight before them that day but then the data just is kind of stopped and that's not something you typically see in crashes or incidents like this usually. There's some sort of indication that something is beginning to go wrong. But this this was just a stop of the data. Exactly there was no change in speed or altitude or or anything like that or even heading that would provide an indication that something happened in past incidents in crushes. We've seen you know a dramatic increase in vertical speed negative vertical speed in increasing ground speed at a loss of altitude or some combination of those. Here you're all three receivers that had been receiving data from seven five two stopped in the same second. The data just stopped comic nick and that was an indication that something catastrophic had happened. And we didn't know what yet and so for the past week. A number of organizations have done some incredible reporting in some incredible open source reporting through verifying video and things like that and that led to on the eleventh of January the Iranian government taking responsibility for shooting the aircraft out right and and pretty much watch from the second word had gone out that an aircraft was down the Iranian officials. Were immediately blaming it on mechanical issues of some sort which is impossible to know that early on especially in the complete absence of any transmissions from the flight crew on board that aircraft for obvious. Obvious reasons they didn't make any but that was the initial word out of Iran in that prove obviously to not be the case. Yeah and so the pressure. Her that arose to conduct a proper investigation from Ukraine From elsewhere really kind of drove a A an unrelenting kind of drumbeat of what actually happened

Russia's undaunted voice of dissent

"The Russian activists Alexei Navalny has been a thorn in the side of President Vladimir Putin for a decade now. He's brave persecution. He's been imprisoned and yet he seems don't Klis correspondent Max. Seddon met him for lunch in a food court in Moscow recently league. Max is on the line now with me to discuss his impressions but first I'd like to open with a clip from the meeting. which gives a flavour of the character of the man? Another big Mac this my Russians rather rudimentary. What what he's saying here so we were wandering around the food court where he took me for lunch which is just across the street from his office in slightly out out of the way but rapidly gentrifying art a southeastern Moscow and this is the sort of place that even if it didn't exist in Russia they've had food around the world from your burgers ears Pasta Sushi to dahgestani dumplings and who's back Pilaf and other things and saying is a place like this that shows you in his mind that Russia As a whole could the really made it economically if it weren't for Putin and he described nisus glass ceiling that's more like a hideous moldy Soviet ceiling the Stop Russia from economically developing. Stick Landy Patillo. Then is a mere ski navy of the numbers suggest that he thinks that despite the huge spike in wealth in the first two years of Putin's rule which was mostly due to rising oil prices. He views the last two decades lost decades because he Says that so much has been stolen. That could have gone towards economic development and there are so many repressive rules and regulations that are holding it back. You've covered Russia for quite a while. Now these are quite strong and outspoken. Remarks how rat is it for a Russian activist to speak out like this. How brave is it to speak out like this I? I interviewed Navan nebout seven years ago in the thing. That is really remarkable about him when you speak to him as I've done many times sense. Sense is just how much breath of fresh air he is. Compared to your official Russian politicians who come from the Soviet bureaucratic addict tradition. They are very bad at talking to normal people in on manage settings you almost never see them give interviews to the independent media where they might says difficult questions. The volney grew up completely outside the system. He someone who was formed by the Internet and by the street and even compared to other people in the opposition and he's a very charismatic person. And this is what is really set them apart even amongst all the pressure that he faces to become the undisputed most popular challenger the Putin in the last few years ears. You say you've known him for a while you've covered rushing for awhile. Tell us how he entered politics. I mean what made him take on this role not only art Ukrainian on his father's side and he has relatives who live near Chernobyl outside Kiev in Ukraine for the first ten years his life up until the blast itself itself in Nineteen eighty-six. He will go and stay with his grandmother. Who lived in this village right near the nuclear power station and the aftermath of fat that we know so well the incompetent Soviet attempts to cover that were very big part of what shaped him because he doesn't have any of this nostalgia for the Soviet Union that Putin has been very big on a lot of people older than the volume has just forty three share? He was very much convinced by this early childhood experience that the system was wrong in the future. Russia's move away from it as far as possible more towards a European liberal democracy as he sees it the other thing. He told me that really shaped him was when he was already in his late twenties he he was working pro. Bono was a lawyer for an opposition party but it was official opposition party in Russia. There are the official parties. who were there to create a semblance of a real political system? They're really they facto controlled by the Kremlin the end. The parties themselves are run like Chiefdoms. Just like Putin's own party and the leaders are these many Putin's and he was working on Moscow City Council elections thousand five and ran against Russia's incredibly corrupt court system. Any said gradually just made him so furious that he became even activist. It's quite a story. I mean you say. He's not nostalgic for the Soviet Union. Interestingly he is though it seems something of a Russian nationalist. Can you talk us through who they send what influence it has on him. And how nationalist is he. Welna volley was actually kicked out of the Liberal Party that he was a member of in two thousand seven for his nationalist nationalist views. Of the sort that you would never hear discussed in polite company among liberals in Moscow and the US the express were very different from from the nationalism that you might think of associated with Putin which is more of the Soviet imperial stout in the Valdez was much more. Russian ethnic Chauvinism Virjee into race says. I'm against people. From the periphery of the Soviet Empire. So the caucasus-chechen Augustan and places in Central Asia Pakistan Cure Augustan Tajikistan stamp who provide millions of laborers who come and do construction jobs. And other things like that in Moscow the center of the Empire and he filmed in some pretty startling videos including one which showed him comparing people from the Caucasus. The cockroaches and mocking shooting them with a gun. He spent several years organizing organizing this annual nationals rally which was attended by all sorts of Neo Nazis and skinheads as well as other people at one of these rallies he used an anti Semitic blood libel trope to talk about Jewish guards. Did you talk about this of your lunch. Does he apologize for any of this. We did. This is something that the money is criticized for quite a lot even though no it's not really very big part of this program anymore. E only really says he wants if these regime for guests laborers from Central Asia but he has no regrets his explanation was that in two two thousand seven. There was this enormous gap between living standards in Russia's back Stan and millions of people were coming from Central Asia to work in Russia and it was a big political issue so the message disorder by rhetoric was a way of trying to get people interested. Max The interview you did with Nevada was for a weekly lunch with the F. T. Slot which normally unfolds in fanny a predictable lines could a swanky restaurant. Just two people the F. T. journalists and the interviewee this was rather different. You joined by someone feel interview view. Can you tell us about this weirdly enough. This is my third lunch with the F. T. that I've done in every single time I've been joined by someone who I don't expect to be there. And this time we were followed by the troll who apparently works for one of the fake news farms run by a Guinea per goes in the Kremlin caterer who runs the infamous Saint Petersburg troll factory. So you walked out of the office building. This guy yelled Alexei. Can you tell us where do you buy your okay involved. He told him to get lost. And the guy follow this rounds we wandered around the food court court and then when we bought our food then sat at the table across from us and watched us through the entirety. The two hour interview and you know all the said for the last six nine months or so ever since his foundation started investigating promotions catering contracts needs people who've been following him and his family around everywhere they go was he listening to you or oh just sitting there to be kind of threatening ish. It was more intimidation. I mean this was someone who was twenty five at most maybe younger and it's not being paid a lot of money to do this but the point is clearly just to harass him the entire time. He is trying to laugh about it he said. It's a good way the practice Zen but he came pretty close snapping a few times and it was obviously of your family's being harassed like that.
