This is reporting paper posted in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics where it's under review Oh so take this to the bank this much methane can't be explained according to Science magazine merely by emissions in people's breath and other emissions the researchers say is much more likely to come from gas powered cooking and heating appliances because festivals like octoberfest can be significant sources of me Thank you being included in future emissions inventories the researchers say don't forget your October fest and according to a new study Europe's Pete lands aren't such dry and fragile state that Britain may exit from them for no sorry that they could go into reverse I releasing rather than absorbing carbon peatlands have been a great carbon sink for the knowable past I guess or the new bill passed now. Researchers examining thirty-one peatlands across England Ireland Scandinavia and Continental Europe to assess changes during the last two thousand years have published a study in nature geoscience of all places finding the most peatlands have become drier between in eighteen hundred and two thousand than they had been for the previous six hundred years the study shows the drying of our boggs pardon me really have to appears to have actually changed the process and the peatlands could actually be turning into carbon sources rather Than Carbon Sinks as they've traditionally been not good news for our planet says one of the researchers Dr Graham swindle old. I said Dr Graham swindled from Leeds University Leeds University he said it's more important than ever that we safeguard peatlands with management and active restoration the combined pressure of climate change and human impacts may push these vitally important carbon storing ecosystems into becoming a global source of carbon emissions he says peatlands in case you wanted to know our type of wetland found in almost every country on earth from blanket bogs in Britain to swamp forests in Southeast Asia. Hey I'm seeing a peatland tour taller world peatlands bring big boots pete forms over the course of millions of years as waterlogged conditions slow the process the plant decomposition natural peatlands across the world score store more carbon dioxide than all other vegetation types in the world combined. but climate change peat extraction drainage burning and conversion to farmland have all taken their toll about fifteen percent of the world's peatlands have been drained and I know the feeling releasing greenhouse gases into the air according to the International Union for Conservation of nature I think the peatland I'm liking the idea of the people and tour from bogs to more boggs I guess you yes you would get bogged down now we got the deepest to crack so the boys bit of slack you know one of the great spectacles in modern goes bust the latest sign that that's probably in the near future for the shadow of the fracking industry it comes from our old friend Halliburton industry that's a case you haven't been keeping up Halliburton Newt company based the Youth United States and Canada according to the Houston Chronicle the latest version of the shale boom is losing momentum and the oilers gas industry again faces the prospect of another downturn Halliburton said its third quarter profits fell by a third from a year ago and its fourth quarter profits will fall by four no and it will slash costs over the next three months as it pulls fracking fleets and crews from North American oil and gas.

"Minute virtual reality this week. Have you read this a little bit ominous? Search you read it the the guardian has published a well, they didn't publish the report the Leeds University Leeds University actually did a report and the guardian reported on it. They took a handful of kids not even that many twenty twenty kids, and they put them in VR for twenty minutes, and they found it's possible that there are. Undetermined health risks. They had one child come out who was very dizzy after a while after twenty minutes and four awhile after taking the headset off showed signs of being dizzy and two or three of the of other the other kids had trouble focusing on things. But both of those symptoms went away. Right. Not quite a longitudinal study. This is no money. People. Twenty subjects one demo. You should read the author of the study wrote a medium post now detailing this. And I and I read it, and then I read the paper that they put out, and it's a much more reasonable take than the guardian piece like while. He's definitely. Says that there are probably short-term effects associated VR and developmental situations. Like with kids like we can understand why balance would be a problem in VR and understand why vision would be a problem for some people in VR, especially if it's not sort of calibrated right to their PD. And and whatever his larger point was that these are real tangible physical risks that people come out having short term issues with we don't know, what long-term consequences are and designers aren't taking these potential issues into account when they're designing games. He thinks that part of him putting out the study was the idea of just being a cautionary note that we can't sort of introduce the element of surprise. In terms of like, suddenly, you're falling in VR things that will mess with your physical state as quickly as you would in a two day. Game just because of potential lingering effects after you take the headset off. And so I found that to be a reasonable statement in the context of this because it was so warning to designers, we need Verret focal headsets. These symptoms could be shown by adults to there's plenty of people who become uncomfortable the headset and have to rip it off themselves. Do you know for fact, whether or not the heads precalibrated for the PD of the kids don't because none of the consumer the headsets have that level of calibration? Anyway, you know, it's good practice. Not to put a VR headset on your child for very long because there are no studies on this and the headsets aren't designed for their distance. So I've always said that my kids could use it for twenty minutes a week now that my son is getting older, maybe a little bit more. But it is something to be aware about. But. The threat of any kind of long term consequences for after twenty minutes. Yeah. Seems pretty I'm skeptical of any sort of number being placed on this at this point. Yeah. Anyways in terms of developmental damage. And frankly, I think it's hard to be an VR headset. More than a couple of hours anyways. The those problems I think will solve themselves soon. I don't. And they're very few experience. We're going to want to be in experience for that much time. Anyway. Well, how about eight months in VR? Yeah. What's? See long. There's a Voss biggest challenge for you. How long you sane VR someone to twenty four hours? Let's see I'm rose years ago where they did a twenty four hour in VR. What would your number be? I don't wanna spend more than two hours. Now. I'm good. We could talk about it. If there's if there's money involved, of course, let's say making it would just no real prop that's happening here when California, but let's say like, what was the offer one hundred thousand dollars on the line. Yeah. One hundred thousand dollars how long would you be in VR? I don't I don't know, man. I dunno horn twenty four hours so long. It's a lot of money. How about wireless headset though, I do week? Wow. It's a lot of money. It is a lot of all. I got to do is lie there. You know, I could close my eyes for..

And they wanted and they wanted to know if they could stop asking them to post in this particular event because they they they wanna be more inclusive, and they don't want to feel left out. And by doing that, even though even though the people that were at this event are the only people that should have been at the event, you see what I'm saying know, what's left out. No one is left out. But there's people that think they actually made that comment, and I'll I'll give you more specifics in the break. But that is the kind of mindset that people have because they can't get their feelings are hey toughen up snowflake. Okay. There are some things that you're going to be excluded from you know, why? Because you don't need to be there. Yeah. And get this. There's this this story here Leeds trinity university. Not only are they worried about capital letters now when they're making a statement, they're trying not to scare people because here's the deal. They released a statement claiming now they have not banned capital letters. But confirmed is best practice not to ride in all capital letters. Well, you're banning them. Won't save band. We're not banning them. We're just saying don't do it. But that's what banning US. That's what I'm talking about strong. Somehow saying it that way makes it so even when we're telling you not to offend people. We're trying not defend people that we're telling not to offend using the word band. Listen to what you just said you just running into surface all your dog chasing its tail. You lady. It's unbelievable. My goodness. How I'm sorry. If you're that sensitive too bad. You should have a rough day. I'm sorry. If you're that sensitive all that causes anxiety. You just having too bad. It's too bad. Single make it how about this..

And that's just not. That's just not reality. That's not going to hand out here. Now. I mean, that's just. It's. My daddy day was. Doing good at school until that one teacher wrote something in all caps, and it got me so off track. I I couldn't do my sinement and actually just couldn't deal with life, and it shut me down. Well, how about this tough your shut it in your show? Yeah. I guess what you know for you know, you don't get to play your game. Shut you down because I got news for you. There's a lot bigger things coming you can't handle capital letters. Then you might as well. I don't know what today, but maybe they lock you up somewhere. It's ridiculous. Because you're gonna you're gonna have a very very very difficult life. A very difficult lives. That's just that's just not just not real full of pains. Yes. Yes. We are. Oh my gosh. Don't get me. Started. Then you're gonna have to dump me. Wait, right. Well, you haven't had one yet this week. Surly? But you know, that's one thing. We got a couple days. Yeah. Yeah. That's one thing sitting down with the bewitched Ma sit down last night. With the boys at dinner that you have in. Yeah. Know y'all do that. And you've got to that that are raised in Mary grown and grown and did a excellent job. But I know raising three boys you have that conversation with them. And I did I had I said, hey, this is a phone free zone. Don't bring them out text, whoever Snapchat, whoever. Hey, I'll be back in thirty minutes. You know, and we just had a talk about about this things like this. You know, you're going to be a man one day. You gotta have to take care of things or unpleasant. We do something sly, and I don't want. I don't want you to think that we do this every night because we don't we we we've rarely sit down at a table together everybody, but we do try once maybe twice where the stars lineup. And we all do this one of the things that we always do in, by the way, my six year old owns this. But always do this. Hey, what was the best thing that happened to you today in what was the worst thing that happened to you today? And there are actually people out there that think. The worst thing question. You don't need to there's actually people that will say you don't need to ask don't bring more negative. Yes. You're being negative don't focus on the negative. But that's how that's we're teaching moments. Come from right there. So that's why we act I smile we asked that question. And but I said that because of that reason there are people out there that will say, yeah, that's a great thing you're doing Helms, but you need to eliminate the negative. No, no, we don't because I want to be able to talk about the negative with them. And I want to be able to have teaching moments and coach them and tell them how it can be better next time. We're not just going to ignore. It didn't happen because guess what the world has a lot of negative things in it. And by the way, y'all to hear some Mattie stuff, by the way. All hard stuff is positive the negative. She thinks his negative. But it's actually like it's not a bad thing. Caroline's the opposite. She'll give me a positive. It's really really gives me negative. And then it's like, you know, trying to draw something out of Brighton. Mattie, always wants to go first. And then she'll change hers. You know at some point. Remember, it was always positive. You can't get anything negative out of. Yellow.
