How Climate Change Is Fueling Hurricanes And Wildfires
"Last week Hurricane Laura made landfall in Louisiana as one of the strongest storms to hit the region in decades to be clear scientists say climate change doesn't cause a weather event, but it is playing a role in increasing the severity of them to understand why we called climate scientists Catherine Heyhoe in a warmer world hurricanes are not getting more frequent, but they are getting stronger they're intensifying faster they're getting bigger and slower, and they have a lot more rainfall associated with them, and they would've fifty or one hundred years ago Heyhoe Co director of the Climate Center at Texas Tech University. She says a warmer world also affects the size of wildfires in. California and elsewhere since the nineteen eighties due to climate change wildfires have burned over twice the area than they would have normally because of course, you get wildfires out west that's just part of life those ecosystems but climate change the great threat multiplier. It's making them worse Professor Heo taking everything into account you just described we also can't ignore that these events are happening during a pandemic. That's already killed more than one hundred and eighty thousand people just in the United States and I wonder is that also what you're talking about when the Department of Defense views climate change describes climate change as a threat multiplier is that part of it as well? It is. So climate change takes issues that we already have that we already care about, and it exacerbates them are makes them worse issues like poverty even age for example, one of my colleagues her parents live in the Houston area they were very concerned about getting in the car and driving you know when when everybody's evacuating, it could take hours to get one hundred miles away because of corona virus. What if they ended up exposing themselves to Corona virus as they drove in for people who are sheltering in shelters typically quite crowded, we are all vulnerable and climate change is exacerbating the risk that we already face today corona virus included. And if you don't mind my raising this, you've written about being a person who considers herself an evangelical. Christian. And you're also a scientists sounding the alarm about climate change. Some Christians. Do seem to see those things in conflict and you just say that this is not true. You say that these two different commitments are actually in harmony. Could you just as briefly as you can just say why you're absolutely right in the United States and that qualifier is very important. The people who are least concerned about climate change are white conservative Protestants and white Catholics but the interesting thing is. That the most concern people in the United States by denomination are Hispanic Catholics, and of course, the Pope Roten encyclical five years ago explaining why climate change is such global issue. So that sort of shows us hey, what's going on here? It turns out when social scientists dig deeper rejecting climate the reality of climate change and the need for climate solutions is exclusively tied to people who have bought into. A right. Wing ideology that somehow this planet doesn't matter but it does it matters to everyone of us if for Christians at the very beginning of the Bible. It talks about how God gave us humans responsibility over every living thing on this planet as well as how we are to care for those less fortunate than us you know the Bible talks about the widows and the orphans and the poor. And today. Those are the very people being most affected by changing climate. So if we take the Bible seriously, we are out at the front of the line demanding climate action, not dragging our feet at the end. All right. That's Catherine Heyhoe. She's a climate scientist and co-director of the Climate Center at Texas Tech University professor. Hey. Thanks so much for talking to us once again thank you for having me.

Egyptian Vats 5,600 Years Old Were For Beer Brewing
"Is scientific American sixty second science. I'm Suzanne barred some fifty six hundred years ago. People in the Egyptian city of here canopus did something. That's still a very popular activity today. They brewed and drank beer. We know this because archeologists examining the area near the ruins of a cemetery for the elite discovered a structure containing five ceramic. That's that would have been heated from below residues in the vats confirmed that they had once made beer and made that if these five vests were operated the same meantime three hundred twenty five liters produced which is equal to six hundred fifty cans of Budweiser Texas Tech University. Microbiologist Momento al-Massari. He says this ancient beer would've tasted very different from what are modern. Pellets are used to the Egyptian beer makers did use malted wheat and barley in the brewing in process but no one had mastered carbonation yet so the resulting grew was a flat. UNFILTERED malt beverage with a low alcohol content Elmasri colleagues recently sampled thick dark deposits from the herrick novelist fats. The chemical analysis confirmed that they were indeed the product of beer making being and not some other fermented food the tests also revealed other ingredients ancient Egyptians putting their beer the researchers found a high concentration of the amino acid pro lean which is abundant in dates and some other fruits. This result suggests that this could have been used or incorporated in the beer for flavor and maybe to add some sweet notes hops which act as both a flavoring and preservative weren't added to beer until medieval times. They use it hawks who was unknown to they need conditions conditions and we think that the US as it to preserve their beer the residues were indeed high in phosphorous acid a product of barley grains added during the fermentation process process. Phosphoric acid is often used today to prolong the shelf. Life of alcoholic beverages phosphoric acid via barley would have made it possible to mass-produce ask produce beer store it for extended periods and even transport it all consistent with the important role beer played in ancient Egyptian society it not only provided hydration and nutrition but was also part of religious rituals among the elite. The study is in the Journal scientific reports studying ancient beer. It has allowed Elmasri to reflect on the intersection of science and history. I teach a microbiology lab. We grew beer in the lab and the students see the whole permutation mediation process and thinking how engines were able to do a similar thing thousands of years ago. It's a very

Rice and obesity: Is there a link
"Now new research out of Japan says eating rice could actually prevent obesity for those who study nutrition people like Nick Durand, Dr chair of nutritional sciences at Texas Tech university. The arguments against rice never really seem to add up. How always wanted rice if such? Taboo, because if you compare vit was this right both how almost identical number of calories. So when I hear that people are okay to eat food made of read, but not write makes me wonder why not at least in terms of calories. There is no difference. There's some difference in amount of protein, but not calorie-wise. This new study goes against decades of advice by doctors and dietitians who've long said avoid rice, white rice in particular to reduce your risk of

Texas Tech's School Of Medicine To Stop Considering Race In Admissions
"Support for NPR comes from investor dot gov. Presenting this message when it comes to investing. We all have questions and investor dot gov has answers, it's your free resource for tools. Tips and information about investing before you invest investor dot gov. Okay. The Trump administration has ordered the medical school at Texas Tech university to stop using race as a factor in admissions. And now one question is whether this case has broader implications for -firmative action in this country. This is the first time the administration has made this kind of a demand of a school. It comes after a fourteen year. Federal federal investigation of Texas Tech's use of affirmative action, Michelle hack, Ben covers national education policy for the Wall Street Journal, and she had access to some of the documents detailing an agreement between the university's medical school and the department of education, thanks for coming in days for having me. So what exactly did the administration conclude here that has the making this demand? So there are two requirements if you wanna use affirmative action. The first one is that your use of race when you're picking, you know, students in admissions is that it's very narrowly used it's one factor in many and the other is that you do regular checks in colleges. Most colleges have interpreted this to mean annual checks that race is really a factor. That's uniquely helpful in sort of achieving the type of diversity that you wanna campus that you can't use race neutral factors like, you know, a person's income whether someone's bilingual things like that. And they found the Texas Tech the the medical school had not been doing these annual checks. And so it was unclear whether their use of race was really necessary the way that they're seeing it was. So what happens now is the school basically saying, yes, we weren't doing these checks where wrong, and we're going to cooperate and stop using raise. That's right. So what they signed with the education apartment is called a resolution agreement where they say we agree to stop using race to come into compliance with your view of anti-discrimination law. Now, I think what's remarkable about that. Is that the education department sort of you know, their enforcement was that they wanted the school to immediately stop using race rather than sort of conduct the analysis that they hadn't done remind me of the broader context here. I mean hasn't the supreme court ruled several times schools can use a -firmative action if they want diversity. So why do these legal challenges keep having so proponents of affirmative action woods? Say that they'd say this court has said several times that race permissible that it's imported in fact, if you wanna be able to achieve diversity, but in the twenty sixteen case, so this was first Fisher versus the university of Texas. The decisions would have left an opening for legal challenges. They said you have to do these sort of regular checks to make sure it's still necessary. And the we've seen the Trump administration really lean into that and say, we want this to be as nearly tailored as possible last July. They actually you've rolled back this guidance. That was almost like a roadmap that the Obama administration had created to say, here's how you can use affirmative action legally. So the Trump administration took that away sort of signaling that they were going to go ahead and try to enforce. Affirmative act. You know, not using affirmative action as strongly as they possibly could blow on the the administration is is investigating policies at at other places like Harvard Yale could this be the administration just getting started here. So I think the specifics of this case are unique to the Texas Tech health sciences center. That's the you know, the larger school with medical schools housed. But the administration does have, you know, a civil rights investigations open at Harvard at Yale over their use of -firmative action. Those cases specifically looking at Asian American students. And so it's a question whether we'll see them continuing to enforce this really strict narrow view of affirmative action at those schools or possibly other schools where they could open investigations, I think it puts those schools on notice. Michelle Hackman covers national education policy at the Wall Street Journal. Thanks a lot. Thank you.

"To get a little aren't are after Easter. I took a little trip. You went out to possum kingdom lake and spent a couple of days with my friend, drew Farley, and we played a little golf and just hang out and talk ministry, and all that kind of stuff is great. And after he thoroughly thrashed me in golf on Wednesday afternoon, we went and had a nice dinner. And then we came back to the condo where we were staying, and we're both a little competitive, I'm very competitive as as he. And so we just decided to play some games. And I said what do you wanna play? He goes. Let's play scrabble. I love scrabble. I consider myself a words guy thought scrabble's a great idea gonna make up for the Gulf this afternoon. So those of you who don't know drew is not only a pastor, and a preacher is also a tenured professor from Texas Tech university in linguistics, he has his PHD in linguistics, and means he knows more words than anyone else. I know. And I knew I was in trouble when he pulled out his phone and he had an app on there for the scrabble. Dictionary. Already had the dictionary he goes, we're gonna use the scrabble dictionary. See official one is that. All right. I'm like, okay. I started walking through the rules, and we started to play and he just buried me. I mean, it was it was embarrassing. And I'm embarrassed to tell you that. I didn't take it. Very well. I really did. I have this strange feeling I get when I start to lose. And some of you who are competitive. No, this feeling well, it's somewhat of a mix between anger and embarrassment. You're embarrassed that you're losing and the embarrassment starts to turn into anger. So to get mad, and I started like questioning the rules. I started questioning the credentials of the people who put the dictionary together. And after kind of poking fun at some of those things, I actually got really fleshy and started kind of passive aggressively taking shots at drew. He sensed it. We kind of finished out the game. And as we're finishing out the game. He's like, okay. And he starts to put it away. And he goes why don't we do something else? Now. And I'm like, no way, buddy. I know the rules now we're playing another game. I forced him to play again. Even though he said really show you want to like, yeah, we're gonna play again, and he proceeded to beat me badly again. And by the end of that game. I was livid and you could cut the tension in the room. And we got done playing and we put the game way in silence. And I said, you know, I'm heading to bed, and I went into my room. And I close the door is a bad moment this bad when I got into the bedroom, and I closed the door two things one. I regretted my behavior terribly. And I dreaded the next conversation. I would have withdrew next interaction. I wasn't looking forward to seeing him again. Because I was embarrassed. I was disappointed, and I've discovered that when we have bad moments, and can we all just admit we all have bad moments when we have bad moments. That is almost the universal response. We find ourselves disappointed our behavior. Which leads to self condemnation. We just start beating ourselves up self-flagellation. And then we dread the next encounter with the person. We've hurts. So we avoid them at least to avoid in isolation. If you think about the very first bad moment, like the original bad moment. Genesis when Adam and eve ate the fruit that God told them not to remember what happened immediately afterwards. God was walking through the garden. He's like, hey, where are you looking for them because he wants to spend time with them, but they were ashamed they regretted their behavior and they hid in the trees. They tried to avoid contact with the one that they had hurts bad moments. The question that I want to address today is what is going on behind the scenes right after your bad moments. What's going on in Jesus heart? What does Jesus think of you? What does Jesus think of me right after your bad moment? We're going to discover what he thinks. And I think it is going to encourage you. I asked you to turn to Luke chapter twenty two. It's a story. Peter Peter is going to help us figure out what Jesus thinks right after our bad moments. Some of you have bad moments this week, I'm guessing maybe even today, maybe it was a fight with your spouse, except this one had a little bit more teeth to it the normal. Maybe it was out in the public area in your home. And maybe the words got really hurtful. You know? You said some of those things that are going to hang in the living room for four or five months. Maybe the tone was harsher than normal. Maybe the volume escalated, maybe this time the kids heard and soon as you guys kind of split just to cool off you regretted your behavior. And you dreaded the next time you had to talk to your spouse. Maybe your teenager was pushing all your buttons this week. And she knows how to. She knows how to do it, and it was happening. And so you decided to put an end to it, and you got that authority -tarian tone, and you just made it very clear. This conversation is over his zip. She dutifully said all right. Went up to her bedroom and went off to her bedroom, and you heard the door click and as soon as you heard the dark click you oh. I want to treat her that way. And you dreaded the next time. You would see her. You've been sober for two years four months thirteen days, you know, that because you count every day you're so grateful for your sobriety. It's such a lesson in your life. And this last week you're on a business trip. And it didn't go all that. Well, and you could feel the pressure in the financial stress is starting to pile up. And when you got back to your hotel your walking towards the elevator and his you're going towards the elevator. Of course, you have to walk by the bar always have to walk by the var-. It's almost like a magnet pull Jin there. He sat down your did something. And you're sitting there looking at it, and you've been here a few times over the last couple of years, but you've always walked away. But this time. And as soon as that liquid went down your throat, you regretted your behavior. New dreaded talking with your spouse and your children and your sponsor. I just wanted to isolate. And in that moment, I wonder if you wonder what does Jesus think of me.

"texas tech university" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"I dot com, and you can get all the shows whenever whenever I'm on. Or listen to the podcast, Chuck, let's move along. We were talking about USC the coaching changes. Let's continue with that topic. So that we can sort of out exactly what needs to be done or your thoughts. So you can ask you buy thoughts as far as from this point on with the Trojan football situation. Coach you've been in the situation where are you at a higher coach or make some changes and work with an AD? So with everything that's going on and scrutiny wise with the message boards with the coverage with people hanging hanging out around the them. Okay. Center around heritage hall when a high profile former head coach like like cliff Kingsbury his so unique his offenses skills having worked with Kevin someone adds Houston. And coach case keenum is now the starting quarterback for the Broncos then going to Texas Johnny Manziel, then going to Texas Tech and working with Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes and brings a lot of scrutiny and speculation. And then when you wait several days, what is that duty your brand, especially when this weekend is a big recreate weekend or check it really brings a question. Mark first of all you really don't want to release or discuss or interview a coaching candidate on your campus, or where the media finds out who necessarily they can speculate who you're looking at or talking about. So I just figuring it out. What you've. Gotta be very careful on just what type of exposure, you do and USC has had Kingsbury on campus. And supposedly, I don't know. But by read reports, he has been on campus and toured the weight facilities with coach clay health, and so on so they've actually had a conversation whether they've met with Lynn Swann or his agent has met with Lynn Swann. I don't know. But that was three days ago. And no decision has come about exactly what's going on. So there's a hole up somewhere on this situation. Whether it's a money situation or different whatever his buyout is. It'd be had a buy out with Texas Tech university, or whatever it is. If it isn't a financial situation, maybe he's having or being entertained by somebody else in and they're waiting to see exactly what he wants to do. Now in that situation when this period of time goes on and the lack of his staff, and the lack of recruiting, and and all of this happens, you're every minute getting a little bit farther behind against the people, you're competing against the people that you're competing against are working and also possibly using that against you. As far as being able to say, they can't find a coach or. Or they can't get the staff together they want or whatever they need to do to try to recruit a student the away from you if he's already verbally committed or or against the school or against the athletes said haven't committed to what school so you're working now would five coaches less than most coaching staffs in the country. That's that's working against the same type of players you have. So the lack of movement or whatever is happening now with the selection of the coaching staffs. There's been a delay. And whatever that delay is for it certainly doesn't help the coaching staff situation and coach clay Elton and the football program at USC. So this has to be addressed. And if cliff isn't gonna come Kingsbury, then you've got to move on. It's either this or that or you find someone else they can do the same job. But you've got to go after a high profile. Rockstar type of offense coordinator and rockstar type of people in southern California to be a part of the Trojan football staff because of who you are now competing with in southern California such as the Rams who are right now looking like they're going to be going to the Super Bowl possibly if caught. Of course, the chargers now in southern California you've got to additional football teams in southern California. You've got the renovation of the Coliseum going on at some three hundred million dollars. Were you need to start marketing your tickets for the new stadium? You're going to be playing in next year. You've got recruiting going on. You've got a lot of things you've got LeBron James in Los Angeles. You've got the clippers and the first in first place in the west division. You've got a lot of competitions. You got the kings. Hey, you got the ducks you got to hockey team. James? So it's not like it used to be when it was USC and UCLA and the Rams and raiders moved away, and when USC and UCLA they own southern California. It's a little different. So it's a different tool at a different thing that much face the university of southern California. And currently right now, you've got to pick up the pieces, and you gotta play in the big league level. You can't talk about the big leagues. You gotta play in the big leagues. And you got to demonstrate that by what's going to happen here in the next couple of days because we have an early period signing initial signing date December nineteen and then the final finding days December twenty first today is December first and that kind of flux in your staff, there's like you mentioned you have a number of people who can recruit. But again, it's not the impact. There's there's question marks. And coming off losses to Notre Dame and losses to UCLA those are two schools along with Stanford. And now Washington he's going to the Rose Bowl who are hard into southern California as well, as you know, a hundred other schools seem fine this area rich for greet student athletes in college football recruiting. Southern California is a base for a lot of schools without you know, not just mentioning schools in the state of California, but Washington Oregon schools, Utah schools Arizona's schools, the Brassica, Colorado. It's these schools all come now to the California Alabama's made a real impact now because of their program in California, you saw the running back if you watch the Alabama game today against Georgia Harris is of northern California. They have other players that have committed and are the big tackle for mater dei a year ago is now I think his name was Brown is not Alabama. So a lot of the teams now from the southeastern conference in our recruiting California and wire sued now seats going there, but they wanna win and they want the opportunity of playing in a big league and have the opportunity to prepare themselves, only, academically, but athletically for the next level. And Nick Sabin and some of those SAF, Davos Sweeney, and these coaches, and in these types of programs that have had continue continue twelve and eleven to thirteen and all seasons haven't been able to attract these top athletes to leave the state of California and go and attend their schools, and Ohio State has really come in now and recruited even the state of Nevada and other schools are coming in and recruiting the state of Nevada because with the growth of the state of Nevada there are more athletes in the state of Nevada.
