Alfred Wegner Takes Continental Drift to the Next Level
"It was a really interesting guy. Born in eighteen eighty in germany got his degree in astronomy but became meteorologist which was still a rather new field at the time. His primary interest was in the northern polar regions. And how air circulated. He participated in four expeditions to greenland and was one of the first meteorologist to adopt the use of weather balloons. However meteorology and expeditions to greenland aren't what alfred wegener is best known for its for his contributions to geology and geophysics. The idea that he is remembered for began innocently enough on christmas day nineteen ten. He was at his friend's house when he began looking at his brand new world. Atlas he made the observation that south america and africa seemed like they fit together like pieces in a puzzle. I should that he was far from the first person to notice this once. Decent maps began being published. In the last part of the sixteenth century people. i observed the same thing. The first person we know of who made the observation was dutch. Cartographer abraham or telling us or telling us created the first modern atlas in fifteen seventy which means he was probably the first person to have the idea because no one before that really had a good grasp of the geography of the continent's william colby wrote in his book on geologic history. Quote abraham are telling us in his work to doris geographic suggested that the americas were torn away from europe and africa by earthquakes and floods and went on to say the vestiges of the rupture. Reveal themselves if someone brings forward a map of the world and considers carefully the coasts of the three continents and quote. Ortelius was far from alone after him. The idea that the continents fit together somehow kept popping up theater. Christoph lilienthal alexander von humboldt antonio snider pellegrini and alfred russel wallace all made the same observation one or two hundred years before moreover there were several other scientists just a decade before who came to a similar conclusion. In fact. there's a good chance that you probably made the same observation. One of the first times that you saw a world map they took the idea to another level however he began by cutting up maps and piecing the landmasses together like a puzzle. He was able to put the continents together into one giant continent that he named panja from the greek words for all and land.

Thomas jefferson one of the big lies of the sixteen. Nineteen project is that he never intended to abolish slavery. Now thomas jefferson owned hundreds of slaves.

The History of the Electric Car
"It or not. The electric automobile is almost two hundred years old in eighteen. Twenty eight hungarian priest by the name of unused djedovic created a simple electric motor and may have created a device that converted it into motion in eighteen. Thirty two scottish inventor robert anderson created a very simple vehicle which is basically a carriage a non rechargeable electric battery into crude electric motor. It didn't go very far and it didn't go very fast. But it was a self-propelled electric vehicle. Electric vehicles were mostly novelties. And weren't something that could find practical use. There was no centralized electrical generation at the time. And there were. No wires transmitting electricity. And moreover every time you use the car you had to get a brand new battery. It isn't believed that any of these very early vehicles actually ever carried a passenger. Many people in the mid nineteenth century created electric devices which moved including prototype electric trains however the fundamental problem that electric vehicles run into for poor batteries and very inefficient motors. The first big development came in eighteen fifty nine by french physicist guest on plenty who invented the acid lead battery. This was a breakthrough in that. The battery can be recharged over and over. Even though there had been improvements over the years this is still basically the same type of battery found in most cars today in eighteen. Eighty one french inventor gustav trevi created the first thing that we would probably recognize as an automobile. It was an electrically driven vehicle. That could carry a pasture down a public street trevi. Interestingly enough also applied electric motor to a boat thus creating the world's first outboard motor in eighteen eighty two englishman. Thomas parker produced a commercial electric vehicle. It wasn't until eighteen. Five that german engineer karl benz invented the first internal combustion engine automobile and the name benz should ring a bell to anyone who's remotely familiar with cars.

Crockett all went down in texas to fight. This dashed her mexican dictator. Santa ana course. Everybody was surrounded and killed. Texans lost at the alamo but that battle was said to be a turning point those men who died there were martyrs because after that taxes was finally able to defeat mexico texan colonists were fighting for liberty they were fighting against oppression and they chose to give up their lives at the alamo so that we could what has become the modern american state of texas.

The Phenomenon Of "Coffin Births"
"Francois are a vias dissuade so lifted a living baby boy out of his wife's coffin. He thought it was a miracle to celebrate his son's birth he named the child. Feast dilatot french for son of the earth. The boy's name would forever be synonymous with coffin births. But he wasn't the only example of a post mortem delivery or even the first there had been other documented examples like one from roughly two hundred years prior during a time of gruesome bloodshed in europe in sixteenth century spain. The inquisition was a tool for catholic. Monarchs to keep control to stop rebellion before it started. Inquisitors traveled around the country and rooted out heresy including anti-catholic and anti royal sentiment. Those accused of betraying the throne were punished severely with practices that ranged from torture to execution. Nobody was safe not even pregnant women in one case in fifteen fifty one. The inquisition tried and sentenced a pregnant woman to death by hanging. These deaths were meant to be examples for the public reminders. Of what happens to those who choose to defy the powerful institutions that govern their lives. The woman's body remained dangling from the gallows long after her death about four hours. After the execution passersby noticed something strange according to his self-proclaimed medical professional from the time quote two living children fell from her womb. This was the first written record of what is now called postmortem. Fetal expulsion given. There aren't any other accounts of this incident. It's impossible to verify.

Why Do Americans Celebrate the Fourth of July with Fireworks?
"Does this sound familiar at all. Without a visual clue it might be a little hard to figure out. But that's the sound of fireworks. Many of you are curious about how these celebratory explosions work. And why we use them. Historians and archaeologists think fireworks started in china. Maybe as early as twenty two hundred years ago and they've been used in europe and other parts of the world for at least eight hundred years in the united states where our show is based they've become a big tradition on the fourth of july. So hi my name is nicholas in six years old. And i live in plymouth michigan and i want to know why people do fireworks on the fourth of july. Thank you bye while nicholas. Americans have been celebrating. July fourth fireworks since seventeen. Seventy seven the first anniversary of the signing of the declaration of independence. John adams was one of the people who signed that document in seventeen. Seventy six a year earlier declaring their wish for the american colonies to become independent from england. Afterwards adams wrote to his wife that he wanted that day to be celebrated with lots of parades shows bonfires bells illuminations. Adams was a well known person. In the early days of the united states he later became the first vice president and the second president so his wish would have been shared with others as well and so on the one year anniversary of the signing. The city of philadelphia had a big celebration with thirteen fireworks. One for each of the original thirteen colonies. Now john adams didn't come up with this idea entirely on his own. English royalty had been using fireworks for national celebrations since at least the thirteenth century. Which went fireworks came to europe. They were widely in use by the fifteenth century. That's about six hundred years ago. But they were hard to find in the early days of the united states so celebrations back then often included guns and cannons more than actual fireworks.
Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu, Book Review
"I had for you the book the dow de ching by loud z and actually have two versions of this. There is the first translated by stephen mitchell and then another one which is by dc. lau before. I talk about why read translations go to chat about the dow de ching itself and the author lousy. This was supposedly written or at least created somewhere between six hundred to two hundred bc. And there's two versions of who it is and what this is. There is the more traditional version which it was written by one person lousy and that he was a contemporary of confucius this place at the back in time closer to the six hundred to four hundred bc. There's some mythical stories on the origin of him saying he existed two hundred years like he was a some semi multiple type of person. And then there's the more modern version which is scholars looking at saying We're not exactly sure that this was written by solely one person and the name themself loud z. Can actually be translated to something like the elderly. The old man the sage and so they think it was more written after the time of confucius almost as a backlash to it not a backlash in the sense of the essential shrunk z. But more of something that came afterwards and then it could have been written by many people and has just one person as the traditional rider such as harm in the grape myths and this was more a bunch of things put together. And it's not exactly certain that it's like one person ridden at one time. The dow de ching itself is translated. Something like the way of integrity or the text on the path of virtue. Something like that. And this is one of the fundamental texts of taoism and it was the first and probably the most well known as well and so therefore lousy is the most northern of the towel west masses or the towers sages. this is written in the style of eighty-one versus and each verse has somewhere between four to thirty lines. Most of them hovering her inbetween that sort of eight to sixteen period.
The case for co-ops, the invisible giant of the economy | Anu Puusa [TEST]
"Wow i get to do that a lot around here. It's finally someone else's turn. So yes i happen to marital wonderful man named ted which is pretty rare in finland where i'm from. It's not a typical finnish name at. Aw trust me i myself. I'm a business professor. And i love teaching but you know what my students are fed up. They have really fed up. With the way the business is growing the environment and making wealth inequality was and putting money and profits above all else. And what really makes them mad is when i tell them about the cooperative movement the angry because once they understand how cooperatives they feel like a secret solution has been kept hayden before i tell you more about why cooperative sauce so great. I want to explain what they are. A corporate. dave is an organization that is owned by its members who are also its customer and decision maker and unlike most businesses where certain owners can buy more power and influence in a corporate day of every member has one vote which was the revolutionary idea back when the model was first introduced a regular mind not dimension a woman with no significant means or prestigious position in the society as an owner and partner in business on heard of perhaps it's still a bit revolutionary. Copa dave's exist in a sweet spot between the for profit and nonprofit worlds. They uniqueness is based on the idea of duality. They have two distinct but complementary roles on one hand they act like any other business and try to make money but on the other hand cooperatives are and do so much more they are scented enterprises run by and for then members and they tried to achieve economical but also social and cultural goes to benefit those members who are just regular people like you and me and what has happened for. Almost two hundred years is that cooperatives have proven to make decisions with a view across generations instead of quarter to quarter to benefit more people and wells in communities that might not otherwise attract investment while. Still being competitive and innovative. Sounds pretty good right. I guess that's why. At the end of a clause the other day student all red and chest up basically shouted at me of always been a straight a student. Done all the work read. All the books are now you telling me that all my life. I've missed hearing about a movement with this magnitude. I get this a lot. The organized corporate they've movement started in eighteen forty four with the russia's society of equitable pioneers. This was a group of weavers and artisans who are of desperation. Opened a store together to sell things that they could neither get nor afford alone. The cooperative movements from there and became a global phenomenon. Many of the modern day credit unions and farm credit systems. You see in. North america are descendants of the famous cooperative reiffeisen system in germany and here in finland. A man named hanis gephardt is considered to be the father of the finnish cooperative movement in the nineteenth century. He introduced cooperatives to help. People tackle debt poverty and unemployment. It turns out. This is the foundation opo country known for its democratic values high quality education and the happiness of its citizens and this line of impact of cooperative movement can be found in other places in the world to. I'm proud to say that invalided terms. Finland is one of the most cooperative countries in the world. We have about five point. Five million people who have over seven million memberships in cooperatives. That's run everything from groceries to banks each time. I stop at grocery cooperative. When i feel in my guest tank edo jointly owned restaurant. Stay at a hotel or buy clothes. Ohad west of i could bonuses. That can be up to five percent. And when i pay with bank card get an additional half percent off and i know that win. The copa davis doing well. It's not funding a single person's luxury vacation in the bahamas every year. A governance body comprised of elected representatives decides. How any operating surplus will be used. Some of the money will go back to the members. For example this year all consume the corporate dave boyer's caroline also or beco- or as we call it it's part of the group is the biggest corporate of croup in finland. They had a so close of two percent or members purchases and twelve percent return on money invested. When you add up the savings and the return my family received more than two thousand years back which is more than we spend on groceries in one month not to mention that across race above seven percent cheaper than its main competitor. i'm a member owner intrigue cooperatives and my husband has four memberships consumer a bank an insurance and water cooperative. We have two beautiful girls who are ten and twelve years old. And they're also member owners of the s group then. Memberships caused us one hundred euros. Each we want to pass on the legacy and teach them about the benefits of corporate gives early on and of course they're very happy about the yearly interest on cooperative capital. But it's just about us getting money back. It's about the greater good for our community. I'm not only talking about taxes and employment. Our consumer cooperative is the biggest employer in the area. I'm talking about support for young people. Sports arts university and cultural events for example as a member of the board of beco- or a few years ago we agreed to build a sports hall fully exa which is a nearby city here in the eastern part of finland belonging to our cooperatives operational area after we built it. The city signed a very long term rental agreement with us so financially investment made sense and of course it was a major gesture to the local people who not have proper facilities to do all kinds of sports in another case. We ended up rejecting the investment proposal regarding building a senior house downtown. The idea was very good one but we declined because it was the big hosting complex requiring a lot of capital with low expected investment return that would only serve a small part of the membership less than one percent of our over one hundred thousand members and therefore we decided against it
A highlight from Under My Skin
"Hey, how're you doing this morning. Good to have you back. And I hope you're ready for today. It's going to be an interesting day. Today is going to be the day that I do something that most people don't expect or don't like prisons to do because it seems so out of character for Christian but bear in mind now. There is such thing as righteous indignation but see. That doesn't come from the Christian. That actually comes from one. That Christian spends most of his time with being christ and quite frankly no Christian can really ever admit to having anything rightist in and of itself because it doesn't exist so when we do talk about things or Point things out. That isn't right away. Like I'm going to do today is basically going to run . But here's the thing is about things that are as anti-god as you can get and don't get me wrong. There's nothing in me. That is absolutely rises. Accept cries to his Emmy and who by the way is quite righteous enough to point out sayings that I'm going to talk about today and the thing is it's not about being a hypocrite. Because i will be the first one to tell you that. I have a hard time sometimes walking Christian wall because god does set the bar pretty high however he does make it possible to reach that ball whether we reach that bar at any particular time is entirely up to us and because of this war with the place that kind of complicates things a little bit but it does get better with time so I guess what I'm trying to say is once a person an one who is lost approaches the cross in total repentance and accept Jesus as the savior that does not mean that person just became one hundred percent perfect. If that person lived as chris for the next two hundred years he would be nowhere near perfection. so I'm just saying that is the beginning of moran. I'll go into it later. But the idea is to remember first of all one who is saved still has to war with the old self because you know his mind and his flesh is still pretty. Well existent okay. And as far as perfection goes no human being on the face of the planet war ever be perfect in this place in this world. So you know. I think. I'm saying that more because more than anything. Because I'm getting tired of being called a hypocrite because are not made. But I'm speaking of the Christian body of people calling Christians hypocrites because we still deal with the human element and the people that do this. Talk about our hypocrisy. I mean I'm assuming this because you know what God expects of us. And I'm just to say you now. If you know what God expects of you, then you can't take the spec out of anybody else's I when you got a beaming your wrong. So let's try to put a lid on that. But i'll be back in just a few minutes and i'm going to discuss a few things and i hate to even admit it but i saw i've been seeing things on Facebook and I say things you know walking down the street or in the grocery store i hear things all the time on. It really gave me Fired up I'm not gonna lie. Gets me fired up. But i will say this before. I decided to do anything with this show today. Operate about it so you're going to get inside of me today. I hope. But I'm still going to discuss a few of these things because I think we really need to pay attention to these things and yes I'm gonna run about it but don't worry it won't be so bad if already prayed about it. I've calmed down a little bit right now. I am going to take a brief break. Lou recess at you will. I'll be right back. They'll go away. I
Forget Me Knot, A Journey to Support Caregivers
"So with me today. All the way from way across the pond is johnny ball. He is with the forget me not charity. It is designed to end the silent suffering of dementia caregivers mostly in the uk. But i'm sure we can expand a little bit someday. So thanks for joining me johnny. So your mom took care of your dad for many years tell me about your dad and your caregiving journey. Yes so my dad. Got fronted dimension when i was full team. Mac i mean we didn't know initially kinda very subtle onset sir some stuff assigns. Some sort of an ocd behavior and habits ejaculated needs to have sort of started coming in and we. We weren't really sure what is meant. Probably when i was seventeen means fooling diagnosed and definitely before at the age tom shanklin saddam was now twenty years ago so he had yes hunts and and then he had to mention until two years ago when he passed away and and the majority of that time he lived at home. My mum and it was just because my sister. Self we guns university on my other system rather Back ceremony on singlehandedly. Careful for him. Full probably nolan probably fifteen years until it's long time i mean as nearly law tougher laws on sarah and tools variants He was to be introspective scare him. You're amazing awesome. But even then i mean did doesn't end full primary care as you know grown same every single day. She still you know she can go on holiday. She just went down and look at the data. even she wasn't enough to all the time she loves him. Most of the to worry. Also vistas right in terms of you always concerned a well-being the and worrying if it comes to bowl of marrying a happy state of mind and that's all still there. Yeah so that was. Conical happens is really back about seeing my mum's dedication. How tough was even though. She handled it incredibly news so stoic. Yeah it was. That serve inspired this inside this expedition. Maturity stop so. How's she doing now. she's doing well. Yeah crazy agree raw. She's she goes now. I'd say sure exactly now so that it was To two hundred years ago died. Since then i guess she suggested completely to new life. Ace i suppose the even though she's a stephanie very different way of living and in some sense of relief. I suppose it's still transitions dara. It's interesting because you still have guilt. Like i know especially now with the holidays coming. There's just times when i think you know. I tried so hard with my mom and like christmas. Two thousand nineteen. Our city. park is full of christmas. Trees that are decorated with different organizations or businesses. Some of them just decorate 'em however they want some decorate them with the theme like one of them was basically a pizza christmas tree so all. The decorations looked like slices of pepperoni slices of pizza. Which is kind of not super christmas. But it was very cute. I took her there because it was bright. It was outside it. You know i thought. Oh she'll love this and it was just like she was like clueless and it was and she was honoring. I think she was having a bad day. And it's hard knowing. That was her last christmas. We did have a really good lunch on the twenty third of december and then everything went to hell after that. So there's interestingly enough you still have like these guilt feelings. Like i should have done more could have done more and it takes a while to get through those i think so. It's i'm i'm finding that with myself and other caregivers that are in my position. So if you guys are experiencing that it's pretty normal which is frustrating. But there it is so. I read on your website that the alzheimer's society which is pretty much the mirror. Image of the alzheimer's association here in the states found that ninety percent caregivers experienced feelings of stress and anxiety weekly more like daily probably at least sixty percent of them struggle to talk about the impact of caregiving on their lives because of feelings of guilt. It's like. I can't complain about what. I'm going through because my loved. One has a tea or alzheimer's or whatever and so how can caregivers balance their needs and the needs of their loved ones. In your opinion like you know have we. Have you thought that one through as you launch charity. I think the as mansell. How things i i think the fittest into that. It's okay to feel the way you feel. i think. Give a lot of as you just explained guilt and extreme sense of gt Which means the facebook does because the caring for fest often before themselves. That i think is important for the mental health of the unification which ben immediately impacts the wellbeing of the patient. They need to care for themselves as well. A member. the average duty of air to themselves as much as they have achieved care to the person benefitting asta and i think inaccessible and really letting mass inside. You know that that's true. I'm giving yourself giving his a brain give yourself the option to feel how you feel and to Except that you need to care about yourself. As well is the vista
The Xunantunich Account
"Tucked away. Inside the countryside of modern day belize lies one of the greatest standing ruins of the maya civilization shuna on tunisia's ancient name is unknown but historians estimate that the structures of tune each were built beginning in the seventh century. C e however the land had been occupied by the maya for much longer as early as one thousand bc in those first centuries it was just a small village but at some point in the seventh century it began to grow in size and power. The lords of the ancient maya city built ball courts palaces and temples but the city's crown jewel was the structure known as el custodio. A one hundred thirty foot pyramid topped with shrines offices and a royal palace hsun each was a thriving metropolis the center of a powerful kingdom. Then all of a sudden it wasn't the collapse of the my empire was one of the most devastating and dramatic catastrophes in human history. But it didn't happen all at once. The collapse of the classic my civilization occurred not long after shoot onto each was built around eight hundred ce. By the end of the ninth century the region and its majestic monuments almost totally deserted in less than two hundred years. The city's population had nearly vanished. Royal dynasties disappeared. Cities fell to ruin the great pyramids of the maya sat untouched for and were reclaimed by the jungle. But over the next millennium the region was colonized by european settlers by the eighteen. Hundreds of colonists. An interest in the ancient cities and their expeditions uncovered a wealth of artifacts that were shipped away to european museums and auction houses. However these pieces of history provided few clues as to what cataclysm destroyed the maya cities something had caused the empire to crumble yet to this day. We still don't know why but for a lucky few their spirits and shown on tune each who will show them the keys to this ancient mystery. If only they would listen how. To- felt uneasy as he walked through the ancient temples. There were no real dangerous here. No musket wielding british soldiers on horseback but there was a dense fog shrouded. Everything missed but hocine 'to could still see the dark stones covered in moss and the snake like lines that crept up the temple walls most days to walk the extra two and a half miles just to avoid the sight of it but today be didn't have the energy. He hadn't slept much last night or any night in the past three months. Not since his father died a scene to had borrowed money for a decent burial. He thought he'd be able to pay back but then the storm came. It devastated his crop of bananas now. He barely had enough to pay the englishman who owned his land and not a single schilling left for his wife and son. His wife was getting sicker every day. It was the same sickness that had taken his father the same fever and bloody cough and recently his son. Miguel had become to cough to how cintos didn't know why he'd been spared. His wife said it was a spanish applied. Maria said europeans were immune to the diseases. They brought to the maya and the husino often considered himself native. He'd been born on the peninsula.

Why the temples made him feel so uneasy because that hopelessness must have been how. The maya felt long ago that there was nothing they could do.

More Sheep than You Can Count: Transfinite Cardinal Numbers
"What are we talking about today. We're talking about cardinal. Infinity is obviously yes now. You you said infinity's the i love the title. If i may real quick the title of the show is more sheep than you can count obviously. That's an allusion to infinity. I love it a fantastic and the reason why we chose that is because there are sets of things collections of things that cannot be counted and And i mean there's a very real sense like not even all the real numbers right like not real numbers. All natural numbers right one two three four five et cetera. You can count all of them. Theoretically they are called countable because you can put them all in a list that has the first item at the first place the second item at the second place on and on and cover all of them. There are some sets. You cannot do that. With and one of those sets is the set of real numbers. And we'll show why on here but basically you cannot. You cannot list all the real numbers in any way shape or form. You will always leave things out any list no matter if it's infinitely long the really nuanced facts about infinity and that will we've we've realized in the field of mathematics and the last two hundred years one thing. I love about this episode. Though is i got especially interested in this topic when i taught sixth grade math. And what's cool is we're going to get into this in a little while but we had to do these socratic seminars. At the school. I taught out it was a charter. School and the kids started exploring infinity completely on their own and they had these group discussions that got into this and what i found a wonderful is there are. There's absolute overlap between some of their discussions. Like i think one of the topics that was brought up was does a circle. Have the same amount of points as a sphere and yes. I kid you not that we had sixth-graders talking about this socratic discussion. Not not everything was maybe correct in that discussion but most touches on the kind of cardinal anthony that we're gonna talk about today for example the answer to the question of does a circle have the same amount of points. A sphere surprisingly is yes and we will find out why.

Darrell k dot com. So as always. We're gonna start out a little bit slow kind of the opposite of what most broadcast or podcast do. We seem to build up people in the on a live cast over time in new. Y- typically on my podcast. The theme runs through the the the majority of the podcast. If you missed the beginning you may be bored with the end. So it's better to be bored to beginning build up that excitement towards the end we start out with a little bit of a philosophy that i have personally a lot of the christians. We look at the new testament as soon as the book. you know. it's the only book to read. In fact a lot of lot of good practicing christian. Good people carry a new testament around my my church minister of modern day christian fellowship reverts that and takes back the old testament and the important things in the old testament because the old testament is the concrete foundation for the new testament. Without which there is no new testament new testament. We're forgiven of our sins from the old testament. We're forgiven sins of the past. But those sins were based on gifts that were given to us by god. The entire universe given to us by god. There's a lot of great things in the old testament that bring people back into the fold. The number of times. That women are empowered in the old testament. Everyone says oh. It's a man's book about men and is true. Men had a lot of the power back in those days. But when god created god created us in his image man and woman he created them in his image. Now why is that. Such an important statement is probably the most important statement in the entire bible old and new testament and most people ignore it. It's incredibly important because it shows us that we have that power with us. The power of god resides within each and every one of us. If we to accept it choose to use it. We have the power to change the way our country runs. We have the power to change the way we think. And the way others think by believing in ourselves and believing that we are got incarnation essentially. Because that's what the test the old testament says. That's why you don't see god you don't stand up and talk to god but when you talk god hears because all of us in existence every human being a small part of that small piece of god. That's why we need to maintain that power and strength and this election is really proven that most christians sir bible people call themselves bible believers most jews who believe in god and tradition more than anyone gave them and they're still giving up. Oh it's over it's over for donald trump. it's over for america it's done. We've used our last card folks. There's still some trump cards left literally rather than the mon the things that we've lost. Let's have faith. Let's have prayer sessions. Let's have believe until the bitter end until the twentieth of january. Nothing is over. And i'm the sixth of january. We may be surprised house george election ago. I don't know. I talked to god every night. I say god. Please help us please. I love you. Please help us. I trust you. You can't pray for something specific like god. Let trump win. Maybe that's not the best thing for. I don't know i hope. Trump wins the pray for god knows is right. What will that be and why will it they. We have to have faith that the path is right. We have to believe that tower of believing that will make things happen. All right waited long enough on the copy of the night. I just had to get that off. My chest elections the election process. How did we get where we are today at. Thomas jefferson said that a republican last about two hundred years most countries lasts most most democracies last about two hundred years and they fall apart. So how did we get to. We are today and is it possible to fix it. I don't think it's ever going to be fixed. Sadly because there too much monetary interest in in having it broken too much monetary interest in having the lust of the world at your fingertips in the money that it brings in greed lust for luxuries. We are everything. The bible tells you not today but why did it work for so long sadie to go back to the days of the constitution and it was about six. I believe sixteen years after the constitution was written it was actually ratified during that sixteen year. Period founders had many many. Many meetings was after the constitution was written. Couldn't figure out how to actually piece everything together so it would function not just for now to get away from england not just from now to get away if the rule of pope for all time and they knew that this wouldn't last they created they chose to discuss rather a democracy republic an answer and several other forms of ruler of role as well. They came down to a choice that most people don't like to call it that but it was was called a. m. democratic republic now call a constitutional republic but basically the democracy part lies in the fact that we can vote for the people that are supposed to represent us theoretically and those people do the bidding for us they chose a constitutional republic because democracy fails and you can see that right now they want you know pop the popular vote. That's a democracy the popular vote and one hundred and three hundred million. Excuse me one hundred. Two hundred million people live in the cities and one
A Star Wars and Marvel bonanza
"The price hike. It seemed inevitable. I mean it's still cheaper than netflix and considerably cheaper than hvl. Max i would say if people ask me whether or not get disney plus i tend to say like star wars and marvel. Do you have kids at which point. It's definitely word this the sheer volume of content. I'd say it's ok. Okay no for sure. I mean for me. I've got i've got kids. So disney plaza lock. I think anyone who's got a family. This is this is our ramaz. Get a among the many different streaming options that we have nowadays Let's get into the shows. I know star wars near and dear to your heart. So let's let's go there first. They announced or talked about ten shows. Let's let's break out. What are some of the new shows that you're excited for low because of out vehicle order Talk about soka. I dawson brought the character life in live action for the first time in season. Two of the mandalorian and that that's a lot like a backdoor pilot for this show. It's just like suggested that she had her own adventures. going on. this was not a surprise. It is a delight though. It is an interesting we. I think we talked about this earlier. The you know the fact that not to get too deep spoiler as they chee. She was offered a role to mentor. Baby yoda no. You really need to go somewhere else. They felt like definitely had that back door pilot vibe to because like i'm sorry i'm off to other adventures. I've got my own thing. Got to deal with and allow that did seem like a setup for its own show. I'm actually late my own. Tv show salena catch trade this game and it gave a pretty clear idea of what she was up to not to get into splutters between between that and the rebels finale. From a few years ago we have a good idea what her objectives are for this show. Yeah we don't wanna get too deep into spoilers. Maybe we'll we'll devote a whole episode of that later on this year to speculate on what what that might be both water. Somebody other shows that that were announced. It was the next big one we knew this was coming for a long time but they talked about a little with last night and give us a sense that or confirmed that it was filming next march And that christian hated christiansen was returning as dark later. Very very exciting news. That one definitely took me by surprise. tactic territory hidden christmas activator. That's that's interesting. As opposed to advocate skywalker. Which would suggest that he appeared in flashbacks as anikin. But saying he's vader would suggest maybe that he'll appear in four seasons or something that is unclear. It's definitely it's intriguing. Another property was with a character. That's near to many star. Wars fans hearts landau gets his own show yet. These were ten on the ground because we don't know if it's going to be live action or a cgi animated series. I feel like donald glover should be involved. Because he was so well received solo so fingers crossed that he will be returning and then there are a long list of other ones kind of run through them really quickly because we unfortunately only have so much time on this podcast okay so there was the ropes quadrant movie directed by patty jenkins of wonder woman fang which is really exciting. That's super cool. That'd be a fighter pilots. There's the bat batch which will be a follow up to the clone wars at those cartridge orig- use there. There's adore which is about caffeine door from roquan. There's tyco tgi movie which we still don't know what that's about our coop concert raiders of the republic. Which is set around the time. Line of the mandalorian and could be about current june because she became a marshal of the new republic but again that remains unclear star wars visions which is automated shorts from abbey craters. That's really cool quite different the acolytes which obviously is that almost excited with the malls because that is set in the era of the high republic which is two hundred years before the phantom menace. And it's like about some sort of a dark site warrior and it could reveal stuff about the Era some different cool. So those a lot. I know being a super star wars fan. I want to get your opinion on this. Is this too much star wars. It certainly was too much reward announcement. I think parceled out over several years. It should be okay especially since the movies will be quite so frequent. Like i remember when it was only like six months between the last year and solo that felt overwhelming with tv. It's a little different as so you can kind of watch out. I'm at home in a more relaxed environment. it's a lot of star wars. There's no escaping that. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. Brian made a good point before we start recording that you know a lot of these might be one off shows ryden. Obi wan will probably be a one-off sled that that kind of makes sense that they'd wanna have this pipeline but it was a lot to digest all in really what was about thirty minutes a thirty minute presentation just for the star wars section. They're just kept pumping out one announcement after another rapid fire a lot but also i think that's partly a function of the fact that they're no conventions this year star wars celebration was
It's coronavirus do-over time. What would we do differently?
"I'm health reported teigen tyler an opposition and journalists alter norman swan wednesday the ninth of december. And it's episode. Two hundred of the corona cast so when we hit the one hundredth episode. We buy setback and went. Oh my gosh. We never thought we'd get to one hundred two hundred. I know it was like two hundred years two hundred days. Well it feels like a silent day to answer these questions from dane. Who says what do you think is the most important thing we've learned about. Nineteen in the last year and if we had a time over again what would we do differently. Well let's do something different. You answer that first to you. Know what i think. At an individual level we would have been more mentally prepared for the challenges of these. See the personal challenges of these see but from an infection control perspective especially in australia Harto corinthian outbreaks notwithstanding. I really do think that we have done an incredible job of keeping levels of the virus incredibly low in australia when we say overseas. What could have been here in australia if we hadn't taken that really hard stance from the beginning. So here's what. I think we would do differently. So the first thing. I'll start is internationally and this is a wishlist. I wish that we had had a more cooperative world when the virus hit if we'd had a more cooperative world you know. This is just wishful thinking but we had a habit of world without authoritarian fragile leaders in china russia and the united states. This would be a very different pandemic. in fact it may never even escape from china because they would have dealt with it transparently and they would have controlled it than they would have told people about it and they're told people about it in december. They're abroad in international help into wuhan market and checked where come from and the world would have pulled together on china's behalf and helped china out but we came into an environment where nations were operating by themselves and it was every state for themselves. And that's the sex. The ground for the pandemic so do differently do international relations differently. The biology of a pandemic organism is almost the least important part of that organism of the pandemic loss of different organisms can cause pandemics. It's human behavior that causes the pandemic so the way we live the way we act. Politics works so international travel works. That's what creates a pandemic what we would do. Differently is have a world that's more pandemic aware and aware of their behavior and aware of the broader implications beyond beyond the personal. That's what i would do differently than international level. The wild thing about that is that if we had done that we never would have nine. What scale of crisis. We would have averted but we do know that. This isn't going to be the last pandemic pathogen that if we ever encounter and saw are we need to take these lessons going forward so that the next pandemic is a fisa like this one should main. I'm a comeback to something. We said on corona cast probably in march march april the of the beginning when prevention works. Nothing happens and so the most important thing we've learned we should have learnt is or if you went back in time is that the general community knows that when you actually have prevention working nothing happens. So that's a lesson for everything and we're facing catastrophe with climate change but it's a slow moving catastrophe and if we actually act on climate change not very much will happen and that's what you actually want to happen. So people talk about all paul early in the seventy s sixty s and seventy s doomsayers population and. so on. The are all wrong because nothing happened. Nothing happened because people did some stuff about that sort of thing and of course nothing happened. So what we learn from this is successful. Prevention is dull and boring because nothing happens. There's no drama.
Globalization is ending. What's next?
"We are at the end of globalization. We taken globalization for granted and as it drifts into history. We're going to miss. The second wave of globalization begun in the nineties and it delivered a great deal. Billions of people rose out of poverty. More impressively both prattled congress like vietnam and bangladesh increased by over six times in the last twenty years. The number of democracies rose in countries as diverse as chile malaysia. Estonia held free and fair elections. The role of women improved in many parts of the world. If you look at wages policy and companies like spain or access to education in countries like saudi arabia economically supply chains spread like webs around the world with car parts criss crossing borders before the final product. Coming into place is also changed the way we live now. it's changed our diets. It's changed how we communicate how we consume news. An entertainment how we travel and how we work but no globalization is on its deathbed. It's run into the limitations of its own. Success inequality a new record levels of business for example world to gdp is now pushing that was not seen since the polio wars. Two hundred years ago. Show us that. The advantages of globalization have been mis directed. The global financial crisis was the result of this mismanagement. And since then policymakers have done little but contain rather than solve the problems of our age. Now some highly globalised countries. Such as arlanda in the netherlands managed to improve income inequality in their countries by better distributing the bounties of globalization to higher taxes and social welfare programs. Other countries have not been as good russia. And especially the united states hub extreme levels of wealth in policy more extreme even during the time of the roman empire and this is convinced. Many people that globalization is against them and that the bounties of globalization have not been shared with the many a now in twenty twenty were confronted by the pandemic which has shaken the groaned under us on further exposed the frailties of the globalized world order in past international crisis. Most of them economic or geopolitical the hers usually ultimately been a sense of a committee to save the world leaders leading nations would come together but this time uniquely there has been no such collaboration against the backdrop of trade wars. Some countries like the. Us have outbid others for masks. There's been hacking of vaccine programs on common enemy. The pandemic has not been met with the common response to any hope that we might have a world vaccine or world. Recovery program is in vain. Snow worth the end over nira in history.

But at this point March fourth eighteen o one three hundred officials and guests watching in the Senate chamber chief Justice John Marshall swears in Thomas Jefferson to be the president of the supreme court. They are at odds immediately because Harlow Joe Jefferson thinks that the supreme court is unnecessary. Correct. The constitution did not create a very powerful supreme court. The supreme court under the constitution was simply an appeals court to hear cases in federal court. And it was a final appeal and that was it. But it didn't have the judiciary powers at that time. Jefferson came in and wanted to tear down all the federalist structure that Washington and Adams had built and the only thing left that hadn't really been built up under federalism, or what was the judiciary Jefferson came in and wanted to pack the judiciary, and and really destroy its power. So the first thing he does is his ram through judiciary acting congress. They basically put spring court in exile sends them all onto circuit duty and separate some also that they can't make a single decision because Adams had put in the judicial activation activation one and Jefferson knows that he can dislodge that by forcing the legislature to obey him. In the meantime, we have to introduce Marbury because I learned from you Harlow that Marbury versus Madison the famous fundamental. Case. And we'll discuss it in depth happens early in the jeffersonian administration Jefferson, ignores it and tries to do way with it for two years when he spends the court, and John Marshall is responsible for for staying with it for bringing it back. Well, before a last few days before the end of his administration, actor your djing of John Marshall is secretary of State John Adams. Saw that the only way to preserve federalism, and strong central government was to build up the judiciary. So he made a whole slew of appointment of of confirmed federalists to various judgeships at every level, including the supreme court where he named Marshall chief Justice at a lower level. He appointed a whole bunch of justices of the peace and the lower court judges and one of these justices.

That's a tear forming question, how do we warm this planet which will release the frozen carbon dioxide in the southern polarized Cup and start to thicken up an atmosphere. You can also artificially thick enough the atmosphere with a handful of different chemicals that we talk about in the series. And as you do that the atmosphere protects you from radiation. It also increases the atmospheric pressure, obviously. So people can start walking around. They can't breathe yet. The atmosphere will be the air will be toxic or I guess not really toxic.

Even if they don't think they're directly affected by them, as I sure John I got another question comes from Dalton who asks Hank, John. There's a particular spot on my chin that I cut almost every time. I shave I've tried going with the grain against the grain perpendicular to the grain always similar results. Grow a beard and forget about it. But I'm a facial hair is too thin. So look. Awful twenty four. So that's not an issue that is likely to get solved with time. Can you help me shave better? Yes. I have seen roadhouse Dalton. Okay. John. I don't I don't like other than doing what I just did. My eyebrow hairs and just being like, okay. You guys are coming out with tweezers. I don't I don't have much suggestion here help help Dalton. Well, I think the most important thing is actually a it's having a good razor blade. Okay. Having a really sharp razor blade a new razor be it's really working, whether it's shaving cream, or whatever you use to kind of lubricate the surface of your face for shaving really got a work that in carefully. I have a spot that I could probably sixty percent of the time even doing all of these things because there's just one spot on my face. It's near my chin where I don't know if the skin is thinner or what? But I have found that if I really work in the shaving cream stuff that I use us like fancy shaving cream stuff can really work that in for a while. And then I've got a really nice good razor. I can usually avoid getting cut there. I also another thing that I've tried to do is just understand that I can get cut there. And it's not a big deal. It's not the end of the world like cut myself shaving, right before I was on TV for sixty minutes, and they didn't have a hair and makeup department to like fix me up or whatever so Sarah used this magical stuff called makeup on my cut and it went away.

Huge Pat on the back because he got news yesterday, he's a finalist for the national book award. I saw that congratulations. That is a really zeal. That's all. Yeah. Yeah, so well deserved. So I think any finals for the national book award should go first. Yeah. Alright finalist I so Adam give us the the elevator pitch if the elevator will real slow. Okay, but technically not a finalist for the national book award, but a long listed book. So they picked ten books for the long list and then five finalists. And I'm not in the finals category. So alas, yeah, we, the corporations is a book about the two hundred year backstory to citizens United in two thousand and ten in the citizens United case has so many of your listeners know the supreme court held the corporations have the same rights as individuals to spend their money to influence elections on campaign ads. And since then we've seen other cases like hobby lobby, where the supreme court under a federal statute said the corporations have religious liberty rights and just this past June, we had the masterpiece cake shop case which although is framed largely in terms of the rights of the Baker, the title of the case tells you it was also about the rights of a business corporation. And so I wanted to look what was the history behind corporations gaining constitutional rights. We tell these fundamental stories about America in terms of African Americans and women and others who've been left out of the promise of we, the people and their struggles to become full equal citizens. While there's been a kind of hidden secret civil rights movement of sorts for business corporations to.

And I think they knew that they had a short window to exploit the fervor for action after nine, eleven, because for better for worse. I mean, it was the largest terrorist attack. On our soil in our nation's history. And so it might seem not not a a year or so might not seem like that long. But like member, there was always the threat and the colors and that like it was still very fresh.

I think they knew it won't be good enough to justify Cindy their children into a war zone to die because we don't like the mess. We lift and I think what frustrates me so much about this generation of leadership, and I'm going to go ahead and include John McCain in this because we talked about this a little bit with him. I don't understand if Vietnam of the Vietnam war had been.

They understood that things weren't black and white that we weren't. We were no longer living in World War Two that it wasn't so simple as just going in and taking out leadership be at communist or otherwise that you don't like and people die and it's a quagmire. And I don't understand why they still perpetuated this idea that we just wear the good guys in the white hats, and we come in and we fix things. I mean, even if they saw how wrong it went the first time with the Gulf war and much less the Vietnam War. I don't understand why they continue in this ego driven purposefully. Limited way of like modern warfare. I just don't under stand. I really, really don't. I don't look how they looked at their own life experiences and thought this is a good idea. I just don't. It's blows my mind. It really does. I guess it's just groupthink on crack is the only thing I can come up with. Well, I think it's group think I think it is ego. I think it's also an inability to grapple with a world that has inherent danger Bilton. Because Vietnam should have been present for all of these folks. But remember we talked about operation Desert Storm in America as a resounding success. The the American military was back, right?.

"The market on the mall now i also think it's important not to necessarily blame the supplement industry for this because really omega three supplements are just the latest incarnation of the the reduction industry trying to market their products we've had a reduction industry around for two hundred years actually the first target of the reduction industry was wales and really in the early twentieth century over three hundred and fifty thousand great whales in the southern ocean where reduced largely to make margarine and remember all the time we were always hearing in the sixties and seventies that margarine was this great heart healthy replacement for butter and all this kind of thing we'll turns out it's not true and it also turns out that it was probably entirely unnecessary to reduce all of these great wales now there used to be four hundred thousand great whales in the southern ocean now there are probably less than fifteen thousand and all that was because of this reduction industry today obviously we're not targeting wales for reduction but instead we're targeting the major chunk of the ocean something like twenty to twenty five million metric tons of fish are reduced each and every year how much is that that's like a quarter of all the fish that we catch a quarter of all the fish that we catch that never hits a human plate most of it goes to feeding animals somebody goes making fertilizer and again some of it goes to making mega three supplements so a lot of the small fish that are being harvested in order to be reduced for animal feed and for supplements what happens to the fish that ethos smaller fish that are being harvested the fish that are harvested by the supplement industry are keystone species they are essential for growing larger fish and if we remove those smaller fish from system then we're going to see fewer bigger fish i mean i think some of your listeners might remember the big cod crashes of the nineteen eighties and mcrae lansky famously wrote that book cod and we all know about how we lost all these cod and we overfished them and so forth and so on but what people don't generally know that prior to the cod collapse there was a huge assault on the prey base of cod on the grand banks to fish called capelin on caitlyn or alto oily fish they are also used by the reduction industry and it was really during the seventies and eighties as the animal feed business started to ramp up inserted catching all those little fish on that we started to see a real impact upon predators and i did when i was working on an earlier book i did go back and interview some of the sources that mark kurlansky used for his book cod and one of them i remember in particular candidates said you know the overfishing of cut it did occur but look at all the little fish that we were catching look at how that may have affected the kat crash and i you know he seemed to feel pretty strongly that the over harvest of those little fish could have had a very strong effect on that cod claps so you wanted to find a way of eating fish that would be both good for you and for the ecosystem of the c so you went on this fish diet for year we're at every meal breakfast lunch dinner you had fish did you have things besides fish did you have fruits and vegetables and grains yes i had protests rules in grades okay so it raised the level of omega threes in your body it also raised the level of mercury in your body which is not a good thing no no no no in fact actually it went up to five parts per million and it was funny at the time i was also working on a frontline documentary which covered some of the same material and i remember we were interviewing somebody from the state of alaska which checks in mercury levels particularly in it communities because they do eat so much seafood and they'd seals in the wales but basically i realized after that interview that if my hair sample and they usually use a hair sample to determine history of mercury contamination if my hair sample had ended up at the at.

"Just wanted to comment about your last episode the knee to debate with amy therese i think that she in your left us and hopefully coming from the right place i think it's wonderful that she is so assertive and so able to say no maybe a hundred two hundred years all of us women will be at that place but i don't think right now that we are at that place i think that my myself included many of us for various reasons are free to say no so many of us very much need a firmative consent there was also in i hope i'm wrong about this but there was also a sense in which it almost seemed like amy was demonizing some of the metoo victims as being people privilege the people who've come out with their may two stories and like i said i really hope i'm wrong about that because hey if they are people have privilege still don't deserve to be sexually harassed and be not everybody who has two story is is a person of privilege i really really hope that in five ten years time that she is still left that she is still hate to say on our side but socialista champion of of left wing causes i hope that she hasn't gone men's rights act activist or classical liberal or something like that so i hope she's coming from a good place but as another one and it was pretty hard to hear her say some of the things she said and i was pretty disappointing thank you thank you lisa i'll just say that you weren't alone in that i've heard from some other people like that now in full fairness i heard from this has been pretty split i've heard from a lot of people who are enthusiastic about amy's episode and i've heard from a lot of people who honestly said a lot of of what you said particularly the comment that well off women privileged women can still be salted and you know what along those lines let me read an email i got i tried to get this person to do a voicemail but never heard back but the email i think is great i wanna share it because it's valuable leave off last names just in case because again i never heard back about this just in case they don't wanna be dented but it's by someone i named jennifer and the email says this i strongly disagreed with almost everything regarding this but most wanted to comment on this amy doesn't seem to believe in misogyny the idea that men listen to wealthy women is absurd on its face we know they don't not just from nearly all women's numerous stories but from numerous studies there was a study that showed when two men were on a large panel about sexual harassment not only did they do most of the talking they also completely controlled the course of the conversation determining what got talked about and in what way amy says marez bullshit and talks about ames versus methods but the results of her talking points are basically the same zimeray she thinks certain women are listened to and she suggested that grace could not have been vulnerable to end sorry because she was at a party with well off people in other words she saying that women aren't oppressed on the basis of sex but they can only be oppressed on other axes such as poverty are race the idea that women aren't oppressed on the basis of sex is the most antifeminist concept there is while this was frustrating listen to i think thomas did a great job in this kind of discussion is really useful and actually more interesting than ones between people who already agree on everything well jennifer thank you for that email sorry didn't hear back on on a voicemail thing but i wanted to read it because i found it valuable in actually emblematic of a lot of the response you know here's where i might say something unexpected i listen to the recent sam harris episode i don't really listen to that one that downgraded his podcast for two to like i'll listen if somebody says it's a good episode you know used to never miss it i never missed it for years but now.
