"And you can also listen to us on Google Homer Alexa, just say, play dove barren podcast. Again, thank you for showing the show with everybody you know. All right, let's strip it down and dive right in. Are you a fan of the show Succession? My wife absolutely loves it. It's about a media mogul who has no plans of stepping aside as the head of an international media conglomerate. That's controlled by him and his family. There is an aging tyrannical patriarch who brutalizes everyone, including the family members who are scrubbing like hungry dogs to take over the company. And as someone who has worked with many, many multi generational family businesses, I can tell you that the show may be a parody, but there are some very painful realities, including what some what's often multiple attempts solidifying some kind of a takeover either from the outside forces or from actually family members. The question becomes does being born into a family business mean you're going to be good at business. And moreover, does it mean you're going to automatically be a good leader or is that your assumption? If you do get to have Succession and you discover that you are, in fact, a bad leader, can you come back from it, and if so, how? Well, let's find out together because our guest today is Warwick fairfax, Warwick lust, wait for this. He lost his family's 150 year old media dynasty worth $2.25 billion, and that was back then. And that's a while ago. Yet he has emerged to lead a more fulfilling and significant life helping others beyond their failures and their setbacks. Today, Warwick fairfax is the founder of crucible leadership. He's the host of beyond the crucible podcast which I was honored to be a Gaston, and he is the author of the bestselling book beyond the crucible embrace embrace your trials and lead a life of significance.

"Then ignore brave session who's 14s for the race which put some 5th favorite for the race overall. What do you make of his prospects? When he comes through the handicap room, hasn't he? And with more novice chases being handicaps over here, then some winners of the king maker like glenford and Sam cowboys have gone down that road. But they haven't managed to make it into article horses. So I think that will be beyond him. He's a lovely prospect. I like him, but if he can beat Edward stone here, I'd be really disappointed in Edward stone. Yeah. Me too. I would echo that. I think you can finish second. If you want to do the exact which probably isn't going to pay a whole lot, given there's only four runners, but still if you want to do that by all means. But it would make things interesting in terms of Shelton chat. If we get Edward stone absolutely bolting up on a genuine, hope he does. For my own bank balance alone, the three 15 is the Warwick castle handicap chase. So we've got celeb for fellow pops. Now ten Tom O'Brien on board at fours falco blitz for Nikki Henderson and Aiden Coleman at 5. And we could go on and on and on and on. Give us your thoughts on the race. I just wanted to begin with a wider point here. The BHA announced at the end of the summer that you handicapping method. Basically the intention is for horses back to marks of equivalent horses got in 2008 to 11 period. Median chase racing by either racing held by the largest number of horses gone up 20 pounds over fences since then. Now given that so many of all the best horses are trained in Ireland compared to them. If the overall quality of the gene pool remains broadly the same, you'd expect the median chase racing to have gone down, not up by 20 pounds. And you don't have to be too cynical to believe that this change of method has been triggered by the BHA being unable to give the Irish horses big enough rises to stop them dominating the handicaps of jail. So if you can't get your horses up enough, get the British horses lower. So there's some sense to all that, but you can imagine the glints in certain trainers eyes back in September when this was announced. And one new bit of research I'm doing for the festival this year is to look at the British train handicap entries and compare their rating with those ahead at the start of the season and see if there's a marked difference from last season's entries at the festival handicapped. I are they going to drop the British horses a lot more. Will there been horses that have been really plotted up? And an example of that could be, right is on the stall here. Yeah, he was a high class horse. He won the 2020 grade one Asuka chase was rated one 62. And he's been dropped like a stone. His last run last season was off one 5 5 is now 287.145. Now you could be on the downgrade. You did have a brutally hard brace for me to ask about chase. It might have happened in. But equally he's the sort of horse that a few years ago would line up in a race like plate at the festival and the row of duck eggs next to his name and win. Yeah. It'll be interesting to see whether the BHA's revised approach to handicapping means those sort of horses start winning handicaps at the festival again. I definitely encourage listeners when you're looking at that handicaps to have that in mind this year. Those sort of voices haven't been winning recently, but it might well be that they're being really well handicapped now and some astute trainers will have deliberately profited them up. I have no idea whether that's the case with him, but it's certainly be interesting to see what he does here. Out of interest just to expand on this briefly, is there a chance that this backfires that the intention that you've set out there like, oh, we're going to adopt this policy. But when you cut through the bullshit, it's like, well, we can't raise the Irish horses any further. That's just lower the British ones. And it's notable that Gordon Elliot, who has had a couple of runners in the UK and I'm talking about on Saturdays I'm not just talking about like in weekdays by the way, Scarlett which doesn't run at air. Weatherby's got backers and says she actually doesn't qualify because she's running the amount of bombers that she has. You can run it as many bumpers as you want in Ireland and then go for another circle. I don't know what to tell you. But that's the very trip canceled. Anyway, but that would have been air next week to just bear that in mind. And you don't have to be terrified of us coming over and bolting up. But given the strength and depth that Gordon Willie Henry, Jessica's on the cold list. So let's leave her out of it for the moment. Joseph, and plenty of others have. Is there a chance that then this all backfires and the British horses have dropped in the handicap? And then they can't get in because there's such Irish quality. Well, that definitely can be an issue. Not so much for horses like riders on the store, Google know really high class sources and have gone from one 62 to one 45 to social horses are going to get in. So it was going to need looking at in that context. But yeah, certainly some of the British horses will not get in that would have done last year, I'm sure now. Yeah, to see there's ways of looking at this and I had a debate with a legendary journalist and broadcaster in the press room. Back in.

"I'm not so sure that he's going to be favorite for the arc lean if he wins this. On my guess is that one of Riviera deterrent or blue lord or maybe you've noticed or color if the vibes are very good, will go off favorite would be my guess, but Edward stone been brilliant so far. I was a big fan of his is an obvious early. He just sort of lost his way a bit less season and I thought he would be good quick enough for an article. But he's been a revelation out of the sentences. I've been very impressed and I think he should be a fair bit odds on here. So if you're getting around about even running a collegiate, that's a really good bet Ashley. Yeah, you are. You can get evens with colloquium right now. But I don't think that's going to last. And to be fair, we should just have a brief word about brave ceska, because 14 for the arco, which puts him saint Sam run over the weekend behind blue lord and really was put out there no disrespect, but I think it was put out there to try and put off Riviera to tell. Darren described this very, very well. The Mullins camp Patrick has described as the Mullins war room, they clearly had a plan in mind as to how to beat revealed to tell. So for any hollow took her on a Christmas time, saint Sam went out and did the donkey work at the Dublin racing festival and that doesn't necessarily mean that that's going to play out in the Oculus itself. But you can't.

"Not going to argue with you there. 11 to four currently with kaluki and I can see that shortening Coleman on board. Fascinating race. Because Edward stone is obviously very highly thought of so that the oracle market has been it's been fascinating. It started with third time lucky being we worked it out. I think he was as short as 8. He might have been slightly shorter. For the article. And then it all went horribly wrong. He's now back third time looking to being 6 to one again. But Riviera to tell who, of course, he put up on the show and Edward stone is currently second favorite for it behind blue lord. Who had to survive a very lengthy stewards inquiry. Probably the lengthiest I've ever experienced are racecourse in person. So the kingmaker novices chase. Who will be crowned king? Edward stone, who is currently odds on ten to 11 just a shade odds on. You can probably get evens if you really push your look with kaluki. So are you looking to ask? Third time looking 15 to 8 after getting back into the winner's enclosure in a sort of nothing race. Last time out, and then it's kind of impressive you want. I'm quite excited about Edward stone. What's your own thinking? Yeah, really looking forward to this. If big branded is a rematch between the two of them, but the bare form of the Henry Yates suggested awkwardly one way traffic. The Edwards sent ought to be long lords on here. One big lucky by 16 lengths. And thanks unlucky to jump the usual fluency there. Probably went too quickly. But even allowing for that and a sharp attract suiting you better takes a bit of a leap of faith to see him turning around the form on the same terms. Now, do you think the presence of the pleasure in the lightning at doncaster really helped him? He had to take a lead, riding in more conservative Lee will help eke out his suspect salmona a bit like stablemate movie Negro. I'm not completely really gets two miles into top company. So I think third time lucky is the type to improve the fair bit over the next couple of seasons as he sees the trip out more strongly. But with the pleasure in again, then providing Tom can and presses on and makes this a D to test that the trip pretty confident Edward stone will confirm and form. I think he's just in a different league. And I know that it's not that much of a jump in terms of handicap ratings that he's one 5 9 and it's one 5 three for example, and you could argue, well he just didn't run his race and send them. Like they're not machines. The race horses. But he sort of came into this season on the back of being very well fancied for the county hurdle and being beaten. And then being sent out 5 to two joint favorite and got thrashed by the horse who beat him, Belfast banter, who's now in America. And it seems to me that like, oh, he's run well at festivals, therefore, he's going to make into a big chaser. And of course Dan skelton talks him up. Why wouldn't he? It's free advertising for you. I just didn't see it with him. Whereas Edward stone I thought was deadly at sender. That was. That was terrific and to recover from being brought down. When it Warwick relatively quickly turned out and then go and bolt up its turn down and then, again, an equally impressive performance. And the wayward thought, I just think he's in a different league to this. And I think it would be disappointing if he doesn't win. And I genuinely hope he wins, and this is by no means it might sound like it. It's not a patronizing comment because if he goes, if he wins this, surely he's favorite. And then you've got two significant British horses at the head of the spring officer of the market. A key British player at the head of the Arkham market. And then Ireland wins everything else. Yeah, I'm not so sure that he's going to be favorite for the arc lean if he wins this. On my guess is that one of Riviera deterrent or blue lord or maybe you've noticed or.

Oh, when tumbles over the bolts of this race, I'm going to feel sick. This is going to be peas and carrots everywhere. But it's very hard to disagree with you when you're saying such confident things about so royal. 5 to two with kooky, which is an industry best price. You've been warned, take it now. That race is when only and the ground at newbury as we record on Thursday is good to yourself but The Rain is forecasted to just bear that in mind, then again the weather forecasters as we've talked about on this show have exactly been the most reliable of lately. Not taking any shots, but so that's a win only erase. It's so too Warwick. For the mayor's listed hurdle, which is a bit disappointing that it's 30 grand guaranteed, but they've only got four runners to rock up for it. So we've got indefatigable. Four to 5. Marie's rock, 11 to four, white hot chili Philly. Who's certainly a horse? With the mole's wishes form. We'll have to be taking quite seriously phi's and then get a tonic for Dan and Harry skeleton is the outsider of the field. What do you make of the race? Yeah, it's trap, isn't it? I mean, indefatigable was fit from the flat, but even so it went in the grade two where she Yorkshire over three miles at the end of October was the standout piece of form here in pursuit was running a blind off one 45 when coming down to our next time. Casey parks on the cleve, Thomas Darby won the long distance. It can hardly have worked out better. And she turns up in that sort of form, then you know that a three fell on shortage is going to take all the beauty. But when she went to the long distance, she looked as if she didn't want to know. So she's a very in and out of the mad Paul Webber's operating on a much smaller scale these days, but he hasn't had a winner since she won in October. So it's another yard. You've got to be a bit concerned about the yard form. Marie's rocks another 103 days since he's had a winner. Yeah. All right. On you go. So it is a much smaller these days. And it's not like Paul trot is when he's got so many good horses, you know something's wrong. But it's still a concern. Marie's rock was very well thought of. He's always had her in high regard, she will beat by Molly's Ollie's wishes on that same weather be card over two miles, but then she bulks it up of a 131 in a handicap on the king George card. And if you're saying offers, I've got a back. I've got a back I know what the problem was she really going to fulfill a potential now to enough joint favor for the lands or off the off 40. But she got really badly happened at a second. So we didn't really learn anything there. She's getting 6 pounds from indefatigable. And on ratings, there's nothing much between the weights. So given she's about 11 to four and in the fatigue was four to 5, I prefer Marie's rock, but it's not a race that you want to be staking highly on because the two of them are just very in and out characters. I have to say that I prefer your pronunciation as well, by the way of the indefatigable, as opposed to indefatigable. And it's debatable as to which one is correct, but given my record of pronunciations. I'd say go with Matt. So final selection overall is take them on and go with Marie's rock. So yeah, I'm not going to argue with you there. 11 to four currently with kaluki and I can see that shortening Coleman on board. Fascinating race..

"Wrong reasons or whatever and when my when i said in hungary put the black flag out disqualify michael. The room was on the president would like that whereas now we're a professional people were controlled by four the go-to of of races age. We got michael massey. The the the israeli fair and honest in the understands what my raisins about so the quality inside that stewart's room. I'll take myself away from this of the quality in shoot room is as good as you're gonna get a they're professional. People are not biased. In any way. I'm i'm just as british driver as we been discussing now penalty is. I am brazilian driver. So that sell on as we try to be in the steward's room about something you mentioned earlier about landau derek. He's personality and he's following and the way conduct himself as a formula one drive. I mean as as one of praise and our fans of credit he brings a breath of fresh air sometimes in in different perspectives. The things that he was doing the first covy lockdown things like that where we're really heart warming to see but what was really interesting with. I asked him. I think it was the theory in guam pre. Does he feel like he's driving better than he did. In twenty twenty one hundred percent. I am definitely and the reason. Why says he's consistent. he's he's he's reaching the peak levels that was last year. But he's able to do that more often. He's not having the drops that he was. Having cheer ammunition. There was a follow up question about why his relationship with daniel. Ricardo doesn't seem quite so macy as it was caller science. Junior annie's answer. He gave a really revealing revealing little snippet where he said well. Basically i'm spending more time with my engineers and i'm having less fun. So what do you make of that. So of responses we're seeing is that is that simple to say it's just a young man maturing and growing up or is it just like all of a weakness in my game maybe not something. I need to focus on on on fixing exactly that. I think he came to one is finding his fate. Lucky you have a great team. I would call us a sort of played the big joker in the pack which came across really well. He's still doing that by the way but in a different way more professional way and he said over the winter the needs to change the way he goes motor racing and because he needs to be to up his game. Hey that's exactly what he's done. He's up to his game. He's not as barely with down your. Nobody could not be fairly fairly with daniel. So i don't know these not having more fun i by asking that same question night's sleep because he looks to me he's really enjoying it you know. He's the first guy that you see on breakdown off the race. There's underneath the car undoing undoing. The floor will the spanner. He's helping dismantle the cars after the rice is. He enjoys being with his mechanics. He's taking bitches all over the place upside down. Low sort of stuff now. This guy's having fun. He's having fun. But also pushing the limits of and still trying to find elements. And that's why i said earlier on the. I don't think we've seen the best of land. Or norris. I think he will grow and have a an argument with a good friend. The cabinet and i know tits rush often talk about one hundred and ten percents goes crazy. Agassi hundred and ten percent. But these guy somehow couldn't find the extra percentage the asked mortars going to talk about and kev. What do you make of his last time out. It's quite a bit. So styrian guam prix to finish fifth then a week down the line or the team's been able to make improvements. The drivers know what they're gonna do. Better because of unique repeat event format that the rebel. Ring house this year. Even battles the mercedes on merit as he said himself as we as we want for our race. But you and. I had a discussion about how we how best to cover race that mattress thapa basically bidding another race off. Let's face it the way he won. So what did you make of land there. Would you say it was a particular breakthrough race there or was that maybe more to do with mclaren rather than than the driver. Well i think he's been performing at such a high level it means that if you consistently their maximizing what you've got when mercedes all border every has a little bit of a wobble forever reason then you'll there to pick up on it and he put himself in a place where none of this traditional midfield llamas could bay. I think what was important about it from his own development is that he said afterwards yeah he can see that lewis is human. You know he. Obviously there is priced in my with the radio which is nice but he said he was making mistakes needs to that realization that the front is all human as well and if he's got the right any pushing himself why can't he win. A grand prix fought for world championships. So i it just adds to your own self belief. I think And yeah does on a bit of a row now. And i think that that pass before that race. We thought that he could run the front. And now i think we know just girl. Pray for george russell. Last year we now know that can run it from growing. Pretty big drama so yeah i think it was an impressive race by the i agree with darryl. Just paul landers move towards becoming consistent front.

"One that i think landau has made this year. Archimedes anything call. Vc's he's trapped limits. Tim miller i think otherwise. He's been pretty much put in that car absolutely is is it can go well. There is the question. Are we allowed to ask you about that decision. Give given a penalty in australia. And what happened there. Wha- what was the case for for him getting that five-second penalty it's difficult because we are stewards. We've got two things to to look at wall. Looks right what feels right was in the harvest in the stomach etcetera etcetera and rose. You probably didn't realize but we took probably fifteen twenty laps before we made our decision on on landau because we're not fighting but we were discussing trying to allies. Look at other incidents that happened to that corner like louis in album year before nineteen whenever it was we had to be consistent. These drivers telling us to be consistent. The drivers are telling us what they want him of the down one is. They won't be able to be pushed off on the exit a corner tell us and we will make sure that that happens but you know we we only the decisions we make are driven by what the roads tell us and what the drivers want you know. We listened to the drivers and we ask them. You know about moving onto breaking. Oh that sort of stuff. We then give penalties deciding on on whether we think less dangerous or no personally. I don't like jarvis pushing 'cause off on the exit when they're beside him but it is better rice in select hundred times in my career. It's been allowed. It's allowed to happen. All i want to know is steward is. What do you on. Tell me what you are. Not the fans. Let the drivers tell us what they want. And we in for the next race we know we can only driven by what they want otherwise we have to take her own decision on what we think is ryan wrong was lindos move. No was he defending his position. Yes was jayco at one stage in front of him going into the corner. Yes was he beside him. Mitt corner exit. Yes so should he be allowed to turn into pushy. Most guys debate that without me. But it's a decision that fell really hard made to be fair. I van lawrence typical and social media. Which doesn't bother me. You know. It's is a job too. I decided i want to do. It's sunday trying to give back to the end of the day. It's it's history expecting to get booed at silverstone not really looking forward to some but because landau has gotten amazing following now spoke about his. He's he's Personality his commitment to most people and the way he is the fans love him. If i look around the garantir. Everybody's talking about george landow so it's exciting very exciting. All we do so of to jump in for derek slightly here because the one of the criticisms i really dislike about it is the whole. Oh your need to be consistent but dare it. Well now let me start driving. Every single moment and incident is slightly different. So you can't say are well go penalty here now but lost a similar. It's all down to real really small neon sees how how long saw as the call on the outside when they're turning name has the polish on the inside made an effort to try and taught in their law and order. They just let the will deliberately run out and run the car off the road. You know they're all sorts of municipal nuances. That i think that main consistency argument is a bit is almost impossible yourself. A harding to nothing read. This is a good point educatable because everybody says to me when he kept hysterical straight. He didn't turn into checa no he didn't but you don't know what he was actually doing you the call you know was he releasing the roy arm to the left or whatever on donal i know what tricks you tell us what we want. 'em we will implement. Birth is really difficult. I'm won't drivers to race. I don't wanna spoil racing and are not there to be a policeman there just to be as fans i can also. Let's let's remember y this thing came about you know circuits and calls safer. Drivers have taken more and more liberties. And i think adding senator mark with the two prime examples of that and it got out of hand. You know the shoe we shop. They're running people off the road. The moving onto something had to be done in fact. I think one of your first student jobs. It was the twenty ten hungary where y- let's face it. She market could've killed rubens. Barrichello and several people in the pit line. That was absolutely outrageous. Move hungering that year and we don't see things like that anymore so yes. We can argue about whether it should have been a penalty with shouldn't have been a penalty but i'd say the driving standards in the white and the top jobs in particular hand each of these days is don so i better than it was twenty or thirty years ago and that hasn't happened barks and and just a shell out for the show zone because when i went to hungary two thousand ten the storage was pretty all now through a lot of them would come for rally or there for the wrong reasons or whatever and when my when i said in hungary put the black flag out disqualify michael. The room was on the president would like that whereas now we're a professional people were controlled by.

Expect the best that you can get you. I don't find that very surprising. I gotta tell you. I'm glad to hear that. I do find a little surprising. That you're still thinking about teaching as a backup plan though like Dionne warwick you. Don't need a backup plan right. Daddy that one. I don't know. I guess i guess i think of you as having reached the peak of some pretty tall mountains. You know and why. Yeah i guess so to be honest with you. I think that's that's something. I'm trying to figure out myself. A little bit you know is. Is there some point that you can reach. Were you'll feel content. Is there some point. That feels like all right. I did the thing. I'm good i'm done or is that not a real idea. You know that's always something else there always is. You know the brain doesn't sell you're always thinking and idea will often to you during that you cannon so why be content with only what you're doing at this point in time. Have you written a book. No no. I haven't why not i don't know some combination of it seems very difficult and i don't think they would want anyone would want to have to say you know that.

How Swiss Utilities Got Their Customers to Buy Renewable Energy
"Customers in switzerland have been helping the climate by doing nothing at all over the past decade. Many swiss utilities have started automatically providing customers with renewable electricity so clean energy is now the default source and consumers have to opt out if they don't want it. A recent study shows that this which greatly increases participation in clean energy programs muss effect. That's hopefully by a researcher at the university of warwick in the uk. His team studied over two hundred thousand swiss households and businesses. He says before their utility made the switch less than three percent of customers opted in to use renewable electricity shortly afterwards however that number skyrocketed to over eighty percent even though renewable energy was more expensive and four years after the switch. Most of the customers were still going. Green leaves says this is not surprising. Given human nature have the tendency to stick to the state of school if someone is defining something as standard then we are quite willing to accept that liba says utilities and other countries could also switched the default energy customers receive to help speed the transition to clean

So so she absolutely got me thinking about the idea of studying the natural world but actually doing so in a manner which which drew people in Than locking yourself away in an ivory tower and having two and a half people your phd thesis and that includes your parents and the examining people why not actually spread your word juanita so so that was absolute inspiration in the uk. We have a wonderful bunch of people who set up a thing called new networks for nature and there is a genus groundswell of nature writing over the but this was a lot of the people segments up largely on the thala gist to begin with.

A sideways look at time and but it was her book wild. With which particularly did it for me. I've known for years and so i'm biased. Because i'm a friend but her writing is another way.

"It and i'm really pleased with that. I'm giving them stuff which is really heavy really big ideas to think about. But i think it's important because we can begin to start to see a deeper and better understanding of what ecology really means if we recognize that. It's not a pyramid with us at the top. Are you familiar with the poem. The mower by philip larkin. Oh yes yes yes yes yes. Okay i love. This poem came across it recently short. So i'm just gonna read it in case anyone's not familiar with it and then i have a question about it. This is the mojo by philip. Larkin the mower. Stalled twice kneeling. I found a hedgehog jammed up against the blades killed. It had been in the long grass. I had seen it before and even fed at once. Now i had mall unobtrusive world. Un mentally burial was no help. Next morning i got up and it did not the first day after death. The new absence is always the same. We should be careful of each other. We should be kind while there is still time and i'm so happy to come across that poem this weekend. We're preparing for the podcast because it struck me as very relevant to your work because in many ways the hedgehog joined a hedgehog highway campaign or to take the effort to improve the garden and to to make the effort to ensure that the power lines are safe for birds and so forth is is. I feel like doing exactly what. Philip larkin is calling for at the end which is to say that we absolutely have the power to be kind to these creatures and we should seize it and so anyway so i just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for that. And thank you for the inspiring message. And all you've done to make that happen and to spread. That inspiration will just philip larkin poem. I mean i love. I love that end bid. We should be kind while there is still time is one of the most powerful in central messages. And it's kind not just for our own kind. I think that's really crucial. And i has been so much deeper than wonderful stuff. Done about. Hedgehog is one of the delights. I have with the animal. I've written a book. All about the iconography as hawks Which is because there is so much out there which ties hedgehogs into deeper philosophical. Thought whether you're looking at the foxes and hedgehogs at the ideas of isaiah berlin building on the ancient. Greek pertemps archipelogos Or you're looking at a shopping house. Views of of the hedgehog's dilemma. Which interestingly is the proper title of my first book. The hedgehog's dilemma..

"Quite how active and busy this this group of people going to be. There is a debate that you reference in your book that you referenced in your Just now in your communications with the change dot org folks about the role that capitalism could or should play in conservation and protecting wild animals but this advocacy efforts and some of the other advocacy efforts have focused on getting individuals in areas engaged in trying to save hedgehogs and protect the environment and improve connect habitat through grassroots power and citizen science individual action whereas the hedgehogs also then in in rural areas in particular face really tremendous threats from industrial agriculture large corporations and capitalism forces more. Broadly was that an intentional choice. On your part to focus on on urban areas and what individuals can do in cities for hedgehogs versus trying to tackle the broader forces affecting them in much of the rest of the country. Well again absolutely brilliant question. It was more to do with. What can individuals actually do themselves and yes. They can form part of a band of people who want to see the world model in a different way and please continue that striping work but there is also real desire to try and step in and help and so i it can leave. People feeling awfully disempowered. If you say fine well then just stop eating meat and only eat organic vegetables that will help hedgehogs. But he's like well in the biggest game you don't really see that level of connection yes things please but actually practically on the ground how we best game to help. Hedgehogs is how the individuals themselves can make a difference. And i suppose what i do and i to be honest i do use the head. Choke quite mercilessly for this. Is i love wildlife. i love nature. I really do. And it's not exclusively hedgehog. And i want people to feel similarly about this and i want people to see the hedgehog as this steppingstone once. They realized that if you can let the head your garden and you've made your garden friendly once. You've realized that you've done this. You are actually helping a whole host of other wildlife. that's fantastic as part of the ecosystem but we also have also social ecosystem where you begin to see. Wait a minute. If the powers that be a determining that we shall have industrialized agriculture which is based very heavily on on on a chemical inputs which are extremely damaging to invite life which happened to be the food of hedgehogs toads and farmland birds and bats and all of these other creatures. If that's a drive which is happening. Maybe we should start to look at trying to change things if our desire to eat meat on a daily basis more than two or three times a day some people that's driving this demand for cheap meat and his demar driving the spreading of animal feed as the principal use of vast vast areas of this country. It's not being grown to feed us. It's been great for animals to to feed those who want to eat meat. If we can begin to see these connections then we can begin to see about really fundamental change..

And if you really don't want the whole you can put a brick in front of it A plot in front of it. If you've got a miniature dachshund or small tortoise maybe excuses There aren't many to justify this and so if we could then persuade the government to change the planning law to a false developers to build these things in the first place. That'd be great. And so i began this petition partly spurred on by the thought that every time i write an update of what should have been about one hundred so far They would go to everybody who signed up and in fact that's what change dot org have used as their pressure. They said you know how many people your block. And i was getting ready on fat so we got ten thousand signatures now thinking i quite like this and then we got one hundred thousand signatures. I was she getting quite excited at half a million signatures. I got to meet the housing minister. And i got to meet one of the boss of one of the biggest developed in the country and then carried on growing more slowly at times and then we got to a point. When our government went. Into one of those occasional moments of paroxysm and change. and we got we got england trump takeover with the delightful boris johnson and what was it trump. I can't remember what it was. Your former leader once described him as and and so he is. He stepped in meant. All of the ministerial posts began to get traveled around and on the last day. Possible the then. The secretary of state for for development in housing change the national planning policy framework to include a paragraph which has one part of it too a guidance to have hedrick highways built in as a stand and that was almost a moment of extreme delight was almost a victory but unfortunately the teeth had been removed from the legislation so it was guidance so i kept the petition open wanting to take this on to the point where we change this so it is absolutely set in stone obviously but stone with the smoot and the but we went straight from straight for not election into a brexit hiatus when nothing else happened and straight from that in into covert and so government hasn't really been open too much else since then so what i'm doing is basically waiting until we get to the million and then and you know as you proved you can sign from from the united states because you love folks to and if you had any european wild hedgehogs over there you would understand quite a spatula. It's a real feeling of delight for me because it's a daily confirmation about the amount of people really cap on and off the back of that the management of communications on change dot org. Ah is is not very straightforward. And so i set up a facebook group a hedgehog highways facebook group which is now over seventeen thousand very active members and i. it's not about pet hedgehogs. It's not about a whole bunch of stuff about looking off the hedgehogs in our garden environment. And thank goodness for my wonderful moderators pickers.

It's rare that affair begun as a teenager lasts a lifetime. But i've been very lucky. How does that affair began. And why do you love hedgehogs. Oh it's interesting. This i mean. The relationship began. I couch it. More than the relationship began earlier than the fab as it were So that that i was a studying. Ecologist is doing my degree. There was an opportunity for a third year project which was actually a practical investigation into the impact of of hedgehogs. On a small island to which they've been introduced in the nineteen seventies and the impact of these hedgehogs might be having on these breeding success of ground nesting birds. It was a straightforward ecological question. Not a simple thing to answer. And that was my introduction to it so that was back when i was still a teenager but it was the realization that very little work was done looking at the day to day. Life of hedgehogs loads of studies had been donald on the hormonal fluctuations of hibernating hedgehogs but the actual mundane stuff of the hedgehog because it's not normally considered to be a form of a past or game animal or something to eat normally. I'm they've never really had much attention. Paid to them This gave me the opportunity and made me realize partly because i think instinctively i'm both a coward and lazy. They don't travel too far too fast. And on the holy bite you so it as an animal to study. It's not so bad well. And of course they're they're not just beloved by you but are consistently britain's most popular animal wisest spiny kind of low to the ground sniffling critter so universally beloved interesting in your introduction. You actually use the word. Perhaps and i took umbrage i even made notes doing. What do you mean. Perhaps the nation's favourite wild animal really. Yes i have. I have my particular passion for hedgehogs. And actually i didn't finish answering questions about what happened to me. When did when did the fab again because research and then that slipped. And actually i have to lay the blame for that at the little feet of nigel and botham barra singley. I was doing a lecture an in it. I talked about this moment when my eyes met nigel's as we lay together while i lay on devon lane and that moment of connection really sowed the seeds alva relationship shifting from liking stuff to loving stuff. And i did i felt. I felt a change in our relationship. Unbeknownst to me that that one of my now friends and colleagues in the audience also called nigel.

"You've got something which is sweet something which is cute which is all hedgehogs are so lovely yet. There is something much deeper. A deeper message in a deeper way of looking at the world Welcome to when we talk about animals a yale university. Podcast i'm viveka morris and i'm jennifer skiing. European hedgehogs are perhaps the most beloved mammal in the united kingdom. When the bbc wildlife magazine ran a poll a few years back asking readers which species should be the national icon. Hedgehogs triumphed but these endearing. Small strange slug munching spiky creatures named for their pig like noses and the hedgerows in which they thrive are being destroyed across the country that holds them so dear. It's estimated that great. Britain's hedgehog population has dropped by ninety to ninety five percent since the second world war. Today there are less than one million industrial. Agriculture has driven the loss of hedgerow habitat. That long characterized the british countryside will farms use of pesticides is wiping out the insects that hedgehogs eat. Meanwhile housing developments are breaking up habitat into smaller and more fragmented parcels and motor vehicles. Every year mowed down around one hundred thousand hedgehogs. That's about one hedgehog in every five nationwide. There are other smaller threats to that. Add up from drowning uncovered swimming pools to getting caught in litter rubber bands and fast food cups. In twenty twenty hedgehogs were listed as vulnerable to extinction in the next twenty years on the red list for british mammals. Tragically they have a lot of company. More than forty percent of uk species have seen their populations plummet in recent decades but while the future of hedgehogs remains precarious. There is grounds for hope. across britain. People returning their love for these creatures into action to save them and significant surprising and delightful ways. Take the country's hedgehog highway for example. Hedgehogs need up to thirty hectares. Worth territory the average size eighteen hole golf course to forage for food and find mates but the average uk garden is just a tiny fraction of that size. The hedgehog street project launch ten years ago is an attempt to link these habitats making homeowners to put thirteen inch diameter holes through their garden fences to give hedgehogs the pathways. They need to survive. Nearly fourteen thousand such holes have since been created linking entire neighborhoods towns this up swelling.

But i just heard the name. And then i was in the image processing of the image analysis. So i wasn't doing a lot of machine learning when i came back. I went to university of bonn where i was doing my master's in computer science because i always wanted to study computer science. And they're also my favorite subjects image processing and computer vision not machine learning or deep learning so i was working at And friends of mine were talking machine.

You can be as narcissistic as you want to be. You're not gonna offend anybody else in the balance because it's your bond so there's no democracies windows so you're not going to piss off the drummer.

Riders of got to do something different. Is that what happens that can happen. you know. sometimes you don't even fit with me and and you know give them to other people record which is great as well.

It's writing a song and then going through the and seeing what you've written and and really this not i mean it sounds like a lot of thought went into a does but there's no conscious thing of like okay written hard rock so i'm not gonna write a slow one you know it's there's none of that. It's whatever i write that day. Or when i feel what i've written i'll go back and go you know the those kind of work together or so. There's not really it's not. It's not that planned as just you know. I write every right every day. So i've always got a bunch of songs on the go and it's really just sitting down this time. It was sitting down with keith nelson. Okay ideas where we go. What songs are making us excited. What songs to be. We want to work on. You wanna finish and it was picking picking the eleven from from this sort of this. That we had.

It doesn't seem five minutes actually since last time what happened last time right telling bay you telling me crockett with back in about major nastier. We spoke didn't we and and now nine months later. You've got a brand new album out so you've been busy albums being done for two years. The album and recorded and twenty nine thousand nine. Wow so why. Are you been sitting on the shelf. And what's been going on here on this show. Because star writers put a we released molestation grace at the end of two thousand nine hundred and we were lucky enough to get a tour of europe. Been right at the end of twenty nineteen twenty twenty. We were supposed to be all year with flex riders. Obviously because of the pandemic bat didn't happen so my album is always scheduled to be released in twenty twenty one regardless of the pandemic. Because i thought that we were going to be busy with black star riders and it didn't seem it seems stupid when i would blocks up could council. It didn't make sense to move the album forward into on pandemic. i was hoping that by. Obviously this time we would be in a better place which were slowly getting there but you know it really honestly got. That's the real reason you know. Yeah said it's just been sitting there waiting for the right time and nothing better than that. Just that really. Yeah i mean. When is the right time. I mean it was always like. I said it was always scheduled for furby. Twenty twenty one release regardless of the pandemic nothing to do with even before we knew there was going to be upon release in february twenty one britain. Well let's talk about that. I then shabby ricky. Tell me all about it so when life was hard and fast. That sounds signs exceptionally yeah. Let's say a summary of your life. I'm hoping now you're not going to tell me that life is slow and soft but life is hard and fast but yeah parts of my life have been incredibly easy as well but of worked very hard to make sure that those parts of my life are easy. You know what. I mean You know the title sums up golden era of growing up in the seventies and eighties prior to cell phones prior to being chained computer. 'em when you had that sense of abandonment and treated him That you know you. You walked out of your house. When the sun came up he played in the streets. She rhonda around things happened and you came back in the summertime done. When it's time for your t. I think you know the the whole thing now that we're a few range the meet something i mean. I'm the same. We'll send them thirty five tax. I'll see you at seven thirty outside the pub. You're texting right up until you meet that person. Five minutes away. I'm turning around the corner. You can see you. You're all. I'm here on your on you. What you think about it. it's pathetic it's absolutely pathetic because back then if you made it time to place either showed up. You didn't if you didn't show up other things happen. You bump into other people or you. Just you know there was a sense of just wireless and abundant. I think we've kind of lost a little bit and you know. I'm not one for really hockey back the pasta. I'm certainly not one. That reminisces. But i think you have to go back to the possibly forward uncertainly growing up in those times ship into the person that i am. You know that songs really my hopes and dreams dreaming of being in a rock and roll. We'll start dreaming of getting of northern ireland dreaming of seeing the world dreaming of playing guitar on big stages all as you do when you're and you're thirteen to fourteen. That's really the essence of song. Yeah amazing i think absolutely right about changing times and capturing that in a song is terrific because we do forget now that it is all about immediacy and i think this is that you've actually had this album on the shelf for awhile and then you've to bring out. That's almost the summary of what that song is about hottest name well like. I didn't choose to bring it out. It was always scheduled to be released when it's going to be released. Nothing nothing has changed. I didn't adopt anything to the pandemic album was always going to come out and forever. Twenty twenty one. So i've stuck to that. And i wrote and we recorded. I had no idea this danny was coming like like nobody else was. Hit me for six like everybody else for six. But you know i. I'm not slugging often. Because god god forbid how difficult would would disappear if we didn't have the internet and didn't offer phones to stay in touch each other during this time. So there's a lot of pluses of voter as well. But i think also we've lost something too. I think we've lost A minister we've lost the physicality you can sit in your arsehole dana and never get off the coach and have everything you need deliver to you everything i know you know it makes you feel that's actually becoming a bit. More sort of separated out from reality was social creatures. you know. i think we're losing that interaction. everybody talks on emails. Nobody picks up the phone to actually physically talk anymore. And you know it makes me get a little bit because people are kinda going. Oh you know this is. This is so awful. I've lost my sense of freedom. Only chain to your phone. You went really going out much before the pandemic silly. Suddenly you bemoaning the i go here. People were just on the road. And i saw the band three weeks ago and i just sit in coach and eastenders is on and i got my laptop and i'm not gonna that was we. Were all guilty about before you know. It's not as guilt. i'm. I'm as guilty as the next person. I'm certainly not saying. I'm many different. Because because i'm not by has taught us a lesson. I think this pandemic is totally told us should have told us a lesson about high we interact and we move forward i typed. I mean it's interesting every talking about phones and texting vibe to the minute you watch she say somebody but actually get your album that there is a track on there that you recorded on your phone. Absolutely incredible crowd of mercy was done in. That was not intended or was it just happened to be sort of like a bit by accident. Clinton misery tournaments rates titles on again. A soon as i'm slagging slagging-off technology. I'm not it's great for so many many things do like everybody else. I use it because it helps me everything that i right. Nah i sing into my iphone. Because before i would sing it into cassette player but obviously the iphones a far more advanced in some much better signing version of the cassette player that we always have so idea or arrests for a song. Click on the phone. I'll just pick up the tunnel. Sing it into the sink into the phone. Unless mclennan misery. I had pretty much song written very quickly picked up the phone force. Sort of forgo any of it and site just directly into my iphone and then send it to keith nelson. Who copa just the album with me. And he's like man. He said the vibe on this is great. We should just lift us from the iphone distorted. A little bit of may make it sound like an old seventy eight. Maybe hank williams woody. Guthrie would cut in the forties. Put some crackles on it because he said the essence of what you've got there were no. We could polish it. We go in the studio where we recorded to. So i think we'd lose the the role the beauty of intensive of.
Dennis Muilenburgs Bet on the Future
"Denis muhlenberg has kept a low public profile since he left his job. Ceo of boeing at the end of twenty nineteen. But that's about to change me. Lemberg has teamed up with air finance founder. kirsten bartok tau and other aviation luminaries to fund a special purpose. Acquisition company called new vista acquisition corp. They're aiming to raise two hundred and forty million dollars through public offerings to acquire businesses focused on transformational technologies in areas. Such a space defense and communications advanced their mobility and logistics. What does that mean well. We'll let you hear directly from denison. Kirsten who have joined today also with us on my side of the table so to speak is aviation weeks. Technology specialists and urban air mobility guru executive editor graham warwick. Just one no we will. Not be talking about boeing past or future. If you're interested in that i'd like to refer you back to our january twenty nine podcast so let's get started a dentist. Tell us what you're up to. And why joe the good morning and thanks for the chance to talk about new vista. We're very excited about this. New endeavor and that excitement starts with a tremendous opportunity that we see right now as you know i had the privilege of being the ceo of boeing back in. We celebrated our centennial in two thousand sixteen and we. We did some work together on the age of aerospace and when we look back on the history of aerospace the opportunity in front of his right. Now i think it's the greatest one in that one hundred plus year history harris face. We're seeing this convergence of technologies in a way that we've never seen before technologies that span artificial intelligence autonomy new manufacturing techniques satellite technologies new types of vehicles and propulsion systems that set of emerging technologies. All at once has never happened before. Combine that with mega-scale changes in the market. You mentioned air mobility new waste. People are moving Logistics e commerce capabilities the revolution in space in the build out of the lower orbit ecosystem and next generation defense systems that combination of technologies and mega skill. Market ships creates an unprecedented opportunity. And that's what we're focused on at new vista kirsten. Let's hear from you. What brought you into team. Up with dennis and How are you approaching this. Thanks joe and as you know. I've been pretty focused on advanced ever ability for the last four or five years Having been based in silicon valley and kind of live through the internet growth and doing venture capital back then realized early that this transition was going to happen and just from the basic technologies with your talk about them. Electrification greeted propulsion which then goes to autonomy and an ad in hydrogen which has come on the radar lately These technologies are going to completely change Aerospace so that the next twenty years is going to look completely different in the last twenty years and even the is you know. The aircraft designs will look entirely different. Lucky enough i been working on this trying to figure out the right vehicle to investment doing a lot of my own personal investing some through our finance and then was Got on the idea of a spec realized that could be the optimal solution to help. These emerging companies crossed the chasm of death valley of death that we call where you got early stage venture capital money but they needed at large amount of growth capital. These are deep company's hardware and software at their capital intensive and then added that they've got the regulatory component of the faa and. they needed some good opportunities. For large amounts of crossover capital groups. Like softbank could have been that or sovereigns but the spac product has really come in to help. These company cost the valley of death and make it to the next level where they're commercialization occurs and their operational so i couldn't be more lucky to partner with such an incredible operators dennis someone who really pushed billing to be more. Entrepreneurial created horizon ex and necks and We put together a great team here. And we're excited to make a positive difference in the landscape. So so what are you thinking. I mean how do you take these technologies that we write about all time. I guess our listeners want to know and apply them to be like a real product. What what is really exciting. Talk about this this change in the next twenty years. What can we see in practical terms. What are we going to see. joe. I think you're gonna see transformation in these four market segments that we're talking about that's way beyond what we've ever seen before i take what's happening in the in. The lower orbits space ecosystem and extraordinary the number of technologies. That we're seeing that are coming into places real applications now. The build out a satellite infrastructure nanno sats micro sats we see a market for fifty thousand plus additional small sets on orbit or the next decade. We see a number of companies who are working on breaking the cost curve for access to space new launch capabilities that are coming to bear and then new applications in terms of how to use those satellite networks to create information at useful data earth observation New kinds of reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities connectivity. In communications i think the low earth orbit ecosystem. Build out that we're seeing now is just one example of the kind of massive transfer transformation that we're gonna see that's going to create economic value. It's gonna create new companies new jobs. it's going to create a new technologies that are on the innovation edge that are now ripple out into other business sectors. So it's an exciting time to be working on this leading edge

Dionne Warwick Knows The Way To San Jose
"It's such an honor to talk to you because you are my mom's favorite singer thing. She's gonna die when she hears this conversation. And i grew up hearing you know dino the way to san jose and walk on by all those hits all the time 'cause dionne warwick was her girl And i wanna talk about all that. You're saying that absolutely i really wanted to talk about music because i think that you are a legend and you know a master and i wanna hear what a master thinks about the thing that they have amassed so much knowledge on. Just what do you. What do you love about singing. What do you love about it. I liked it. Sounds their civil What nick's how you make me feel it's Very tangible kind of Of being i think Living being music is some people say that when they get in the midst of the song and they're leading the band and they get to that high point in the song they sort of feel like they're flying like do you feel like that i. I don't know how to describe What i'm feeling at the time. I'm doing a particular song moments where i'm hoping i can reach that high note so thinking i'm sorry is not really of the essence at that moment in times times each were has addictive feeling a defining ocean. And that's the vote and So i think which is the reason. I don't sing that song. Same twice and sequoia bad. I got up on that day. And had i happen to be feeling found is saying that. What do you think separates you as a singer. What do you think it is that has made you. You know it's so great and so special for so long. Because like i said you know if you're an athlete you say well you know i can shoot really well from beyond the three point line or i can defend really well or like what aspect of singing. Do you do really well that you think keeps audiences coming back I guess my consistency. That i i'm seeing some searchable that people have grown to love over the years as much as i have and was expected of me I've not Abandoned who. I am musically which is something that made very clear to me that thank goodness. She hadn't so doubt to doing other things or trying to do something that we would march do in any event. No would i have a desire to. I kind of like me and like what i do. So it's it's easy for me to be consistently dionne I guess that's it. Yeah i need charge.
Jubilant crowd celebrates Biden's win in Providence, SW of Boston
"Run. Islanders react to the declaration that Joe Biden is the president elect on Tyler du Mont. From NBC. 10 covers that Jovial jamboree Saturday evening in downtown Providence THISS activist marching band taking to the streets for song and celebration. After numerous networks, including NBC News, declare Joe Biden the president elect, Will we play in protest? We play in song, We play a celebration. We play when the community needs us. And right now this evening, it was Massively clear that the community needed us. We haven't played so much in the pan down and it just feels really good to have been safe. We've been good, but today our souls needed it. Our city needed in our community needed it. A small group gathered along South Water Street to participate. Dancing along for democracy. It's a big step in the right direction. We have a black woman coming into the Into the office as BP, which is huge Supporters on both sides gathered here at the State House earlier today, with pro Trump voters, saying they aren't giving into the results of this election without a fight. At the end of day, we realized what's going on in the country. More Trump supporters also gathered in Warwick holding signs with claims of voter fraud.

Kain Warwick of Synthetix on Where the Company is At
"We're. At and what are your kind of the biggest priority? Yes. I. Published an article today, you know one of the things about device it is so early that it's really hard to predict. You are out what your priorities are going to be right. You can take your best guess but. Startup life and I think you know early stage project is very much about being responsive to the market. You know you just go out there and wish that things were way up to actually deal with the way that they are. and so I think being aware of that we've seen over the last probably two to three months is that the demand for stable allstate acquaintance but decentralized orange as well has skyrocketed, and so we've had the supply imbalance where there's a ton of demand for US USD in up supply. And so we're working on alleviating that by introducing. The latest version of our either collateral, which will allow you to borrow s USD from eight directly. which is not something that's been available before So that's super exciting. And then always the gas prices are are huge issue right now So we've had a number of different optimizations that have been available to us for a long time, which we're just low priority things because you know there's a lot of priorities out there and in a lost. Three to four weeks. We basically just made a call to kind of. Pull some of the documentations out around transaction costs and try not. Muslim but probably, the biggest thing is the transition to. Optimistic. So the L. to solution from optimism team. which is a huge deal desma announcements coming out like really soon, correct me if I'm wrong but you are definitely one of the few projects that is actually working on and kind of you know going live with something that involves a level L. to solution. Right does a lot of solutions out there. Moment but I think this kind of three general categories that that are available right? You've got the hybrid off chain solution. So things like diversified, you wind ex are looking at stock wear. Because you know when you're. Using some state in like an chain solution in a stock wears quite quite a powerful solution APP Ck, your knowledge proofs essentially. Zero roll ups. And then you've got state channels and payment channels and things like that which are not really like generalized computation, but allow for very cheap payments right. So we've got billions of dollars with a stable coins flowing. Around. The theorem these days. And we need ways to kind of optimize that and then I think the the probably the most exciting category are the the actual generalized EDM compatible altitude solution. So optimistic theorem falls into that category where you're literally taking same contracts that you're running on one. And you're deploying them to this other. Chain sexually assaulted chain and so it will be. Other than out demo that we did in the union demo. You know one of the first kind of generalized elsia solutions but I think will will see running on tested initially, and then over sale may not eventually. So super super exotic. Why
TV Face-Off: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Superstore
"Hello Lauren. Any. How was your week own? It's been a long everything. That's really doing that sounds. Yeah. Yeah, it's going well I.

This is the first week we were talking that some of us are putting on her calendar, our TV watching yes, like we're like tonight and. You know on the Google cal or whatever use a calendar I'm putting everything in my calendar and I do feel like I did commit to a few things because occasionally I wake up with this idea that I'm like, I'm going to do that and I'm GonNa try this show or whatever, and then at the end of the day you're like, what am I doing like I barely do any I've gotten those black bananas out of the freezer like six or seven.

Tiffany this for you. Because this singer's voice sounded so much like. Many conspiracy theories emerged that Elvis was still alive and releasing music under this alias in the nineteen eighties. I will say it seemed as though he was leaning into the Elvis thing a little bit. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I'll take multiple choice because I truly don't have a clue so I'm going to guess. Okay I'll give you the multiple choice. Was it a Orion be Bill Haley and his comets or see Jefferson starship? I think. Bill. Haley and his comments who is that? That's cool. Too. So cool incorrect.

The history of potatoes
"Like corn and tomatoes, the potato was born in the Americas before it conquered the world, they come from the spine of mountains that run all the way down from from Chile all the way up through the Andes and really into the Rocky Mountains Rebecca Earl is a historian at the University of Warwick where she focuses on the history of food and on the history of Spanish America and potatoes are bang in the middle of her ven diagram potatoes are from the. Andes that much is clear. The earliest wild potato ancestor that's been identified is from the shores of Lake. TITICACA on the Peruvian side but there are a lot of potato varieties claimed by a lot of folks in the region. In fact, there have been some recent disputes between Chile and Peru over attempts by Peru to patent whole variety number of potatoes as being Peruvian and of it and part of our national patrimony. So where they originate doesn't sit so neatly. Onto national frontiers, wild potatoes bread, and down the America's they've even been found in Utah but it wasn't until about eight thousand years ago. The people in the Andes started to domesticate these kind of unpromising marble sized super bitter tubers. Potatoes came to form a really important part of life in the Andes because they can grow an incredibly inhospitable conditions I've traveled in the Andes. In Peru and not only did I get intense altitude sickness but people farming there look like. They're hanging off the side of the mountains the Andes. Are Super Tall and super steep. It's just rough terrain for growing things in the whole of Peru only something like three percent of the land is classified suitable for growing crops compared to twenty one percent of the US but for the potato, no problem at flourishes in those conditions. So yeah, the potato was a big deal in the region, but it was still the food of the people it was essential not special. Unlike the other big American staple corn planting of the maize crop was something that the Inca himself oversaw of the ruler himself planted symbolic wro of as as part of a big ceremony and there was a team priests who would prey over the course of the year to ensure good maize harvest and it was a whole lot of ritual associated with with maize the empire. was not very interested in potatoes. They saw potatoes kind of lowly everyday food that didn't have great spiritual resonance Mrs Going to be a theme with the potato that said on that lowly local level. The potato did have spiritual resonance. It was a day. T called the potato mother who looked over the potato harvest and ensured that it grew well. So it was very important not. Just in terms of Diet. But in terms of kind of ritual spiritual life on village, this was something the Spanish conquistadors picked up on right away when they showed up in the fifteen hundreds. So they said Oh these the people here eat a kind of route, which is the bread of the Indians as they put it they were always comparing it back and forth to. European. Bread they said it is their bread which meant it was the staple. It was the backbone of the Diet that said the Spaniards knew it didn't taste like bread. This is how a Spaniard described the potato. It's the very first written description that survives potatoes are something like Spanish truffles aside from being a bit bigger and not as tasty. They said potatoes, they are a thing. Like chestnut or a bit like a truffle oil parsnips they grow underground there were route and they eat them the way that we parsnips of the way that we eat chestnuts. So they quickly drew connections between. A variety of different things? Some root vegetables like Parsnips, turnips, and somethings like chestnuts that we might not think a potato is exactly like the texture is not on similar. If you bake a chestnut, you end up with something a bit mealy but like a potato Europeans brought this new truffle chestnut food back to Europe with them although we don't know exactly when like many crops that have spread around the world people didn't always record when they first saw it. It seems like the potato landed on the shores of Europe somewhere in. The second half of the fifteen hundreds I to the Canary Islands and then to mainland Spain and from there they spread across Europe and around the world. But in terms of how potatoes caught on, there's an old story that has stuck around for a long time. It's almost become conventional wisdom and it's that the peasants in Europe were pretty reluctant to give potatoes a try the old story is that peasants are inherently conservative and will not do anything new. They will not try unfamiliar cultivation techniques they won't eat new food they're they're basically backward-looking and highly superstitious and regard the novel with skepticism. So there's an old story that says peasants looked at potatoes and they said this food is not in the Bible we will not eat it and they said our grandparents didn't grow this food and we will not grow it added to that. There was the unfortunate fact that the potato is part of. The. Same Botanical family of the deadly nightshade. So that's kind of suspect and the potato doesn't grow from seed like a normal crop instead you so little bits of the potato the ground I mean, why would you trust plant like that? Europeans didn't understand this. They thought it was the food of the devil. There's a whole lot of old writing from decades. By historians who say that, Europeans looked potatoes and when they saw them, they saw something freaky on weird.
Big Ten football to resume weekend of Oct. 24

The date is still in the air. I'm not sure if it's going to be October seventeenth or October twenty fourth but greedy I can't confirm the big ten football is coming back. Big. Ten football coming back in October for those who are just joining us had their catch everyone up on how we got here on August eleven. They announced that they will not play and they were talking about a spring season. Here we are about a month later how did we get from there to here? while. There is certainly political and public pressure but the president's the fourteen presidents and Chancellors said they would not be swayed by that the bigger topic I. Think we will hear a lot about today is going to be the changes in the medical information remember Michigan Michigan State you're talking about an epidemiologist and in infectious disease expert, right? So the medical information had to. Be buttoned up and change in order for this decision to be made I know that over the weekend they were presented with at least four new antigen tests for daily rapid testing results and also helping them with the contact tracing I. Think the question is and also going back to that date October seventeenth or twenty four. How quickly can they actually procure those tests it? Took the PAC twelve a while to get them on each campus so that could be part of the equation. There are still a lot of questions answered but Greenie to me that is is the number one is the differences in the medical information helps sway the president's the number. One question that most fans will have is, can they get a representative season in in time? To compete with the SEC and the big twelve and the ACC and try to get into the College Football playoff I literally just pulled out my calendar. If they start on October seventeenth, it's ten weeks until the College Football playoff selection special, which is set for December twenty. What is the plan as far as you know it about what they will do for a season? Well haven't confirmed the exact plan to be honest but sources have said that they would like an eight game season eight or nine game season with a conference championship game being on December nineteenth as you said to sneak it in. December twentieth selection, day, and I can tell you that if the big ten is going to be allowed back in the College Football playoff all ten s BS commissioners and Notre Dame Athletic Director Jacks Warwick would make that decision. My Gut says, yes of course they would let them in. But at the same time, you have to remember that not everybody's playing right and it's a shorter season for them to continue. So maybe it's a little bit of discussion difficult conversation but I do think at the end those commissioners will let them participate in the College Football playoff. The question is, can Ohio State Win it?

Human Speech Evolution Gets Lip Smacking Evidence
"Imagine it jetting to a chimp in chimpanzee whether portray by REX. Harrison Eddie Murphy or Robert Downey Junior Dr. doolittle learn to talk to animals, but in reality signs has remains some distance from solving the long standing question of how we humans learn to talk during our evaluation, his one new clue, a team for searches in Great Britain have demonstrated how the rapid succession of opening and closing mouth rhythms by chimpanzees. Lip smacking mimics the natural pace, acumen mouths talking. The. Findings are in the journal Biology Letters. This phenomenon has been observed before in other ape species who performed lip smacking movements at around five hurts, which falls within a range of mouth, opens, and closes characteristic of all spoken languages namely between two and seven huts, but this lip smacking timing connection had not been made in our closest. Relatives until now mouth and vocal signals with speech like rhythm, Hetero been observed in some monkeys in gibbons and Orangutans, one of our closest great relatives, so the last years had seen accumulating evidence that these rhythm other than something that only talking humans do. This was the rhythm from deeper within our prime ancestry recycled so to speak as a cornerstone for speech pollution. The Mirror of University of Warwick. Who led the study, but the sense of evolutionary continue towards speech steelhead, a big gap to cross the African Apes. There was no evidence for speech like rhythm, neither in Gorillas Bonobos nor chimpanzees, the study followed two captive populations of chimpanzees one in the UK. I'm wanting Germany as well is to wild populations in Uganda. Researchers observed lip smacking at an average of four point one five hurts the made all the observations whenever a chimpanzee was grooming another think of a hairdresser engaging an idle chatter with a customer at the Beauty Salon, the coffee mation of speech like rhythm of the mouth into Pansies, not revealed per se how language came about in our own lineage, but he offers the final confirmation to scientists that we are looking at the right place that. That, we are on the right track to solve this mystery. In that great apes in captivity in the wild steel have to reveal all their secrets about human nature in human origins, Numero also notes the variation in Lips. Mac Times both between and within the chimp groups do not appear to be hardwired rather the lip smacking variability likely reflected how individual differences and environmental factors and even social conventions affect how chimpanzees communicate with each other. Even Dr Doolittle will be amazed.
