"So sarah lockwood party values at per day party party party party party already party. So she marries william winchester over the family business right in eighteen sixty two. Sarah and william had one child anne winchester who was born in eighteen sixty six zero married into a prominent family. Tragedy would soon strike her not once but twice in a short period of time so her infant daughter passed away from an. I could not get the saying this right even watch videos. Do you guys know how to say this. Marasmus marasmus marasmus. Yeah yeah so there were like i watched a couple videos on it and there were like two different ways to say it. Sounds like whatever so anyway. it's marasmus. It's a severe form of malnutrition which i would imagine was pretty big back down right definitely as well as what her. What happened next ashley predominant yeah and also i just wanted to throw in the fact that it wasn't because they didn't take care of her because it was a congenital disorder that she was born with so yeah. They actually fed her correctly and took care of her but it was like they couldn't really fight it at that time. There were edison to take care of her yet right and then her died of tuberculosis. Which was also like ryan said pretty big back then so. Correct me if i'm wrong. This was only about six months after oliver. Winchester died correct. Yup yup. i think you're on the head six months so so just to sum that up for anybody who's wondering on those timeframes oliver winchester dies passing this this thing on his onto william william dies six months later and now sarah suddenly in this position. That's right wild like imagine all of that happening all at once like that. Yeah because it's made. It's a major high. Because he takes over the company right william succeeds in the company and then the daughter dies and then he died six months later. So it's like a. They went really high. And then they're gonna like down in the dumps and now she's all alone and i think that plays into a lot of what we're gonna talk about here. My opinion so following the inheritance the widow winchester visited a boston medium. The boston medium allegedly channelling. Her late husband informed her that she must leave for the west where she must continually build a house for herself in the spirits of those killed by the winchester rifles. Now and she's doing this on an inheritance of twenty point one million dollars which is equivalent to five hundred and fifty million today like that is right. That is a mind blowing amount of money. Right definitely because i mean back then. It's not easy to move across the country right. No not at all right. I mean if it weren't for this medium saying that this is where she had to go which i mean. I think that you know. We'll get into this probably later but You know. I i think that this medium kinda played on on her grief at the time and i think that you know whether this medium was real or not like that's left up in the air what we'll just kind of leave it to you. Form your opinion about that but obviously she's overwhelmed with grief everything that you could ever possibly have happened to you as a person just happened to you a giant inheritance. Your only child died in your husband died. And you're left with this controlling stake in a company.

"People have lived in the area of Gloucestershire share. Now known as would chester park since the Romans invaded Britannia but the site of the Winchester Mansion itself began as a hunting lodge in the middle of a heavily wooded deer park. The ducie family purchased the Land Law in Sixteen thirty one renovating it into a Georgian. House called Spring Park. The ducey's kept the house in a near constant state of renovation added several landscaping features to the sprawling four thousand Acre valley including a group of art official lakes in eighteen forty. The second earl of Ducie inherited the property from his recently deceased father. The Legend of what happened that fateful year would be the first indication that something wasn't quite right at the would chester estate. It's no wonder that rumors of full body apparitions, disembodied voices, and the strange smell of extinguish candles persist. Not when the initial occupancy of the mansion turned out to be so very, very strange. Henry was grateful that his father and past he would never say so loud but he could not be happier. He had long toiled in the shadows of Thomas Reynolds Morton look first earl of Ducie. While the reward of inherited title was a nice reward for his time. It wasn't enough Thomas expected a lot out of him henry heated the permanence near the Thomas War around his son the constant lack of approval had driven Henry to dark thoughts. It was unfair that someone who had so much could feel as though they were nothing. He'd contemplated killing his own father regularly. It wished for his father's death a thousand times. But wishes weren't enough. At night he trump of sneaking into his father's room and crushing his windpipe Thomas, Cole ties would stare back at him in defiance but Henry would only press harder. He would steal every ounce of paint from his father that he could. He would revel in at even. This was the retribution he deserved. But by the time, he finally summoned the courage to act on his feelings fate had intervened. His father was dead and Henry would be able to keep his soul free at sin. He should have been overjoyed, but there was a part of him. That was disappointed. Henry had wanted to watch the life leave is father's is. Instead, S. he stood in the church on that summer morning he saw the corpse of an older man that felt nothing like his father. This husk of a person wasn't even the slightest bit intimidating. He was justice Shell Serene still. No fire behind the size no disapproving sneer. To the best of his knowledge Thomas Reynolds, Morton had never looked serene is life. Death was as the saying goes the great equalizer Henry didn't WanNA. Feel equal to his father he wanted to feel better that him. His shock at being robbed of the chance to end his father's life was eventually swallowed by his own greed. He held the title and the purse strings that once belonged to Thomas. The legacy had been passed onto him and he could do whatever he wanted with that power. His first act of filial disobedience was going to be a party. He would holden enchanted forest themed masquerade at his father's last real estate acquisition but converted Hunting Lodge in Winchester Park. It was still under construction, but the ballroom was mostly finished and the incomplete designed would really add to the atmosphere. Henry woke with a sense of clear purpose on the day of the party even though he held the title for weeks, this would be his entrance into high society as an earl. The people would give him the respect they never gave his father. A. Played softly as Henry mingled with his guests, he welcomed as many people as he could bobbing out of conversations whenever he grew tired of the subject matter. Most of these guests were more his father's friends than his. He despised them, but he couldn't resist the chance to hold his new title and the imminent chaos heads. He outranked nearly all of them now. Though the event was a masquerade few visit guests had been particularly inventive. There was fun and trying to guess who everyone was. Something always gave them away the gate, the bone structure, the laugh. There were at least four uninspiring looking deer and far too many rakish second sons had decided to come as wolves. But there was one person Henry didn't know. A strange masked man was weaving his way through the crowd. He had never introduced himself and his body language was unfamiliar. Henry tried to get closer, but he struggled to even get a clear view of the masked man. The pushed through the of gentry ignoring their complaints. Finally. When the crowd parted they met.

Are Wolves Smarter Than Dogs?
"I've known some dogs that are pretty smart I've also known some that worked. Bless him. But could wolves be smarter. Brain stuff. It's Christian Sager, my dogs, winchester and se blue they are real smart. So I was intrigued when I read a new study that said wolves are more intelligent in some ways than my dogs and all their canine friends whether you have a chocolate lab or a coon hound scientists believe that some modern dogs and wolves descended from a common ancestor between eleven thousand and thirty thousand years ago the new study which was published in the September twenty seventeen. Journal of scientific reports is by an international team of researchers at the wolf? Science Center. In Vienna Austria, they found domesticated dogs cannot make the connection between cause and effect wolves however, can they came to that conclusion by testing and comparing how the two species searched for food after giving them hints about where it was located researchers used fourteen dogs and twelve socialised wolves in their experiments. During the tests, the animals had to choose between two containers one with food. And one without the first thing researchers did was determined whether the animals could make sense of communicative clues by pointing and looking at the container with the food researchers. Next wanted to see how the dogs and wolves responded to behavioral cues the experimental pointed to the container with food, but did not make eye contact with the animals. Finely in the last experiment, the animals had to infer themselves which container had the hidden food using only causal clues like noises made. When the experimenters shook the container with the food both the wolves and the dogs did well on the communicative clue tests all found the hidden food both species however failed the behavioral cue portion without direct. I contact neither dog nor wolf could find the food during the last part of the test. However, only the wolves could make casual inferences as to where the food was located in other words the scientists said the wolves, not the pooches understood cause and effect. Study Author Michelle Lamp from the Netherlands reminded. US. However that the differences can be explained by the fact that wolves are more persistent to explore objects than. As, because dogs are conditioned to receive food from US whereas wolves have to find food themselves in nature. What shocked researchers was that the wolves were able to interpret direct eye to eye contact that understanding of communicative cues researchers said may have facilitated domestication. The study is unique also in that it used dogs that lived in both packs and with families, but the results of the dogs were independent of living conditions.

So perhaps you could set the record straight firstly in what context did you say the words Jewish people are among? The cleverest in the world. It came up in conversation. About Physics I've always an interest since I was a boy in astrophysics. because. I couldn't believe that one hundred years ago almost. Albert Einstein we're talking about such abstract subjects as light being affected by gravity. And he works out the speed of light, which was a phenomenal thing to do in the nineteen twenties. How did this man come to realizations about what actually control the will then what does control the world? And the whole universe that we live in? So. My interest was based on this philosophy. On physics. And when the lady Mico sleater told me that she was a qualified physicist and she was American. It was almost involuntary question for me to Oscar. She was Jewish and again, this was a private lunch at a private lynch over Cup of coffee. Now, it was also reported to say that you said that black men on the privileged needle help that they can get. Yes. I did say that.

Had, long talks when I would still her forebodings by telling her that men of genius conceived their best projects, when drunk that the most majestic constructions of philosophic thought were so derived by the time I had completed the course I knew the law was not for me. The inviting Maelstrom of Wall Street had me in its grip. Business and financial leaders were my heroes out of this alloy of drinking speculation I commenced to forge the weapon that one day wouldn't turn in its flight like a boomerang and all, but cut me to ribbons. Living Modestly, my wife and I saved one thousand dollars. It went into certain securities then cheap and rather unpopular. I Riley imagine that they would someday have a great rise I failed to persuade my broker friends to send me out looking over factories and management's, but my wife and I decided to go anyway. I had developed the theory theory that most people lost money in stocks through ignorance of markets. I discovered many more reasons later on. We gave up our positions off. We roared on a motorcycle. The sidecar stuffed with tent blankets, a change of clothes and three huge volumes of a financial reference service. Our friends thought a lunacy commission should be appointed. Perhaps they were right. I had had some success at speculation, so we had a little money, but we once worked on a farm for a month to avoid drawing on our small capital. That was the last honest manual labor on my part for many a day. We covered the whole eastern United States in a year at the end of it. My reports to Wall Street procured me a position there and the use of a large expense account. The exercise of an option brought in more money, leaving us with a prophet of several thousand dollars for that year. For the next few years fortune through money and applause my way. I had arrived. My judgment and ideas were followed by many to the tune of paper millions. The great boom of the late twenties was seething and swelling drink was taking an important and exhilarating part of my life. There was loud talk in the jazz places uptown.

She's a brilliant mind and we overlook those quite often an even though she was. A bit rough around the edges trying to appease spirits she was. Hearing how tactful ways to make their lives hell at the same time I mean I. Don't blame her one bit. I would do the same thing if I'm going through all of this crazy construction so I can make a bunch of ghosts. Happy I'm surely quick to get something out the deal. Now. Thirteen different bathrooms and the home only one was functional. This was an effort to confuse any spirits who thought it might be fun to Hong a spigot. She would also do things like sleep in different rooms of the house every night and used secret passageways to get from one room to another. All of this, just to keep the spirits from following her. Sorry guys. But this is where I would pull out the old rock salt draw myself align. Every threshold and keep them out that way. But who am I to? Its. Sarah Winchester passed away of heart complications.

Strange shadows, odd Colt spots, flickering lights, and slamming doors. Both tour guys and visitors alike over the years have also reported feeling heavy presences while on tours and sometimes even seeing mysterious mysterious figures moving to the halls. Is believed that some Sarah Winchester's loyal workman and servants from the household may still very well be looking out for the place even in death. One such mysterious figured that is often seen as the apparition of a man with hair as black as the night. It said that he was a former handyman. Mainly because he's usually seen repairing fireplace and the ballroom or even pushing a wheelbarrow down a long in extremely dark hallway. Each time he has seen he simply disappears. Without so much as a trace. Once while conducting a tour one of the. Guy For the house took her guest daisy bedroom. This particular bedroom is where Sarah Winchester actually hit during the earthquake in nineteen oh six. The tour guide was about to begin her usual bid about the Becker when all of a sudden there came a heavy. From just outside the bedroom door. Poor Sam thought whenever guests had fallen. So she turned and called out to them then to attend attempted to invite them into the room. When no-one entered she was quite confused. There appeared to be no-one there or is adjusted to the darkness of the Hallway, and then she noticed something that didn't quite make sense to her. A small form that resembled person shrouded by darkness materialized and floated gently around the corner. Sam now slightly terrified quickly whipped around the corner after the string spector but again found no one there. Once more. She heard a heavy. Sigh. Perhaps Sarah Winchester is checking in on things and signed with her discontent. Several years back, there was a craftsman who is assigned to work on a hefty restoration project those taking place in the mansion he decided to get an early start one morning and he found himself in the hall of fires. The name simply comes from the fact that this area contains several fireplaces. House was empty and the stillness of it could be filled. The quiet. Filled his ears as he worked festivities at the top of the. Ladder. Suddenly someone came up from behind and tapped him on the shoulders. Caught off guard, he turned to see what I WANNA. Do you think found anyone of course not. No one was there. Getting back to his work the craftsman told himself that he was just imagining things and all was well. A few minutes past and then he felt someone pushing up against his back. A chill shot straight down his spine he flew down the ladder ran across the house to look for another project to work on. It was more than obvious that someone or something did not want him in the hall of fires. These are but a few of the many goes lean counters that I've come out of the winchester mystery house.

That's all I can say. I know some people who don't even make that in entire year. Well well, this kind of wealth hunter hands. Mrs. Winchester. Could do just about anything she wanted. Now she was living in a time where a lot of people were turning to spiritualism as a way of dealing with grief. Typically more European in nature this took off in the United States just after the civil war. Grieving wives and mothers were looking for ways to contact today, contact the dead to see if they weren't peace. Make Sense. There was nothing wrong with it. Most people considered it to be a normal thing.

There she must find a home to live in in never stopped building on. She must accommodate all those who had died as the result of winchester. Rifles.

Before we know at Winchester had pack your bags and a trip to California was underway. Sources for the most part thing that due to a rough battle with depression a much needed change of scenery wasn't order. There are those who were close to Ruben seeing a different tune. However, they say that Sarah was under the distinct impression that she was being plagued by spirits of those died because of winchester rifles, the only way to appease them was to move and build a house big enough with them all. The Jay doper desires came into not too long after an e bedroom unfinished farmhouse in these Santa Clara Valley out in California she bought it right away in the building commenced. The best carpenters were sought out and worked on the House twenty four hours a day until it became a monstrous seven storey mansion. And architect was never hired strangely enough and the. Construction was always done rather awkwardly hazardously I guess you could say. The the home contained numerous oddities because of the such as doors and stairs that lead to nowhere windows overlooking other rooms. Many.

Walking the South Downs Way in England
"Welcome amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about the south downs way. I'd like to welcome to the show. Aaron Miller from the Armchair Explorer podcast at Armchair Dash Explorer Dot Com. Who's come to talk to us about hiking? The south downs way in England Aaron. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much Chris. Pleasure to be here well Erin. Why are we talking about the south downs way? And can you put it on a map? I first of all I come from this area so I'm passionate about it. The South downs way is I think. One of the most beautiful but lesser-known hikes in England in the south of England. It's a hundred mile pot that stretches from east which is south of London right on the coast and it goes a hundred miles west to winchester and it's a beautiful route because it follows the spine of the south downs. The entire way on the south downs being a series of hills mountains hills. We're talking the south. Downs is beautiful gentle rolling hills that stretch of this way and into central English landscape. When you picture that quintessential Englishness that gentle rolling hills in arable farmland and old pubs little tiny villages and sheep and cows. Because you're on the spine of these down. This incredible view to one side to the south of you is the English Channel Sparkling Blue Sea in and then the other side is this wheeled. Which is this valley. That seems to stretch on forever. And IT'S COOKIE CUTTER. English field far as the I could say. And what makes this really special is? It's the national trail for south downs. National Park which is England's National Park. I think turns ten this year. So it's really a working landscape for like for your listeners. That come from the states or other places. I love the national parks in the states. I'm a huge fan right about them. A lot and most of them are obviously protecting. He's wild spaces. But the town's national park is a little different is actually a UNESCO biosphere reserve which is an award. That's not been given out to that many places and it's to do with the relationship between a land and its people and the sustainable relationship harmonious assistance between the ecosystem and the people that live there and have lived there and work that land for centuries thousands of years in fact. So what you get. Is this real sense of living landscape. It's not a national park which is devoid of people cut off from civilization It's a national park where people have existed for thousands of years the south downs way. In fact it's been walked for at least eight thousand years. Have records of that so when you in this room you really? Following in the footsteps of people that have worked for thousands of years. There's age hill forts. There's Bronze Age burial mounds. There's Roman history so you get a real sense of that as you will through an feel like that history and culture can imbue a place with debt when you're there you get the sense of this living landscape that is very typical of England's and very friendly in welcoming you're passing through these little villages and it's a little off the tortoiseshell because I don't think many international tourists do so when you coming off the trail to stay in these tubs or these different places overnight. You really stay in local One a drop down to this pub called the five bells and the local cricket teams in having their Green Tea and Gossiping About Pu. Bakes the best scones and all that sort of stuff. So it's really you're eavesdropping on this. Little World of the south of England and I think a lot of people when they think giving they think of the south of England to landscape inspired love artists over the years for everyone from Virginia Woolf in the blooms regroup to painters and musicians. So you really feel like you're walking through a landscape that has a lot of depth battle texture to it and there's a lot of great beer too so that was helps o'clock and one thing to know is when you talk about this being a national park in UK the UK Veasley being a smaller country than the US. Where I live doesn't have as many national parks. That only has fifteen so when you say. It's a national park. It's one of just over a dozen national parks in both England. Scotland and Wales altogether. So obviously fifteen are the fifteen best sites that were worthy of being named National Park. So where are we starting? So there's two options I started in Eastbourne which is on the south coast and made my way west from there and I did that for a special reason because when you do it that way there's a really great finish to the hike which I'll I'll keep his as a surprise for example a Lotta people choose to do it the other way round. It's the same elevation same difficulty. I think a lot of people choose to do it the other way round because when you begin winchester you slowly make your way closer and closer to the finish. This really dramatic finish walking towards east born in this place called the seven sisters. Which are these beautiful chalky cliffs that the White Cliffs of Dover the famous cliffs on the South Coast and these be bit as beautiful? I did it the other way and I also did it in a very fun way. I did it as a one hundred mile. Pub CRAWL

You're asking questions about what tweet where to purchase our food and how food choices are impacting the environment and world around us while sometimes these are complicated questions. What's what's been inspirational about? Many of the podcast conversations. I've now had is how despite the politics and complexity many food and drink produces uses are just getting on with it and making a big difference to their local communities. As this week's guest Andrew Barry Naughton puts it. What's on your doorstep is that is the most important thing once you get that right? It spreads from there now Andrews lucky he happens to have the beautiful landscape of the new forest orest literally on his doorstep as a commoner as well as a farmer his animals can truly range free through heathland and ancient woods. Sometimes they range a bit too freely as you will hear in this program. We explore the peculiarities of calming history. We also discover how and and even more fascinating Louis why we are seeing the return of regional. Native breeds such as Ruby red cattle and saddleback pigs `brava than the influx of larger continental breeds. It makes good business and environmental sense especially now that the communists have their own shed brand and the new forest mark in essence to support a more artisan kinda traditional approach to farming. Andrew needs to charge around ten percent. More Oh and supply more directly to the end consumer is this the way other regions could go. I very much hope you enjoyed this. Week's conversation. Andrew Carey Nelson Awesome. Thank you so much spare time on the US very much appreciate it here. It's all things go communist. I guess and farming. Can you just say where on planet Earth are. We pleased and we're in the in. The new force pistol. Kadam was founded in line in the middle of nowhere and it was surrounded by forests and we are luckily. Because 'cause it's pouring rain we all sat in your kitchen. Aren't we started out as very very muddy Soviet so he's not afraid poor cattle at the moment so so walling around the second good but it takes that mind space picks the reckon the sun picks lables out the forest so pigs and won't go very well together. They're lucky year so I'm a big fan of a new I. I love it but a lot of people listening. Probably maybe you've heard of it but not being here. Can you just describe the forest just a little bit. 'cause he's pretty. ECLECTIC has an escort ancient woodlands. It's got farmed areas. But just what is the funds very large area. Originally a lot people know sets. It's up by William the conqueror Purcell hunting area. But actually where we are sounds. We're on the northern combines. The pressure of the new forest so and we are actually what we call manorial. Waste the new force yourself was originally setup and that part of it was called Crown lands. That was part ten going for the crown mm-hmm but where we are at the moment the mineral ways we are actually owned by the Lords of the manor in this particular area we had Born to state which was part of course sustain it has the biggest site next to us big farming state and then another part of its playskool portions of state which again was another huge farming state in its time and Darcy's why sees winchester who owned track of it so the ground whale when surrounded by on the Commons. We are actually originally here before the existence of the new forest poorest before the creation by William the conqueror interesting. So how long does that William the conqueror showing me in ten sixty six. Okay so I believe the new forest trey to run about ten eighty four eighty six roundabout that things. So he's now the congressman sales assistance. Few people reckon two or three hundred years years before that date is well it comes will and I'm by when we say comments. They were used in essence four livestock even back then they were basically land. Minora waste the their Germany Germany. As a rule Paul ground is not suitable for farming so the topsoil was always very thin and all forms of small sel even some. The school houses had the brought them to turn out their animals on that waste ground and that that was drawn to him by the Lords of the manor at the time. The US okay. But it's not a great sounding name waste isn't it. If he told me that in this context it was like a tip. Says he doesn't really when you think you've just dry. It's absolutely stunning isn't it. If you'RE GONNA take place Iceland this is the kind of waste land to live in beautiful. It is it's the ground itself is is is poor is ray civic. Don't have its own sand and and it's very very thin topsoil. It wouldn't be much good performing any other way. Okay for across the new forest in its entirety. There are areas that are good for eight changes inches. Yeah you've you've you've you've got the the ancient ornamental woodland bigger some beech woodland you call the lawns. which is the areas across your orest echoed loans if got more covens in different areas of the forest as well? The Heathrow in itself is probably more rather than the Amazon rainforest. I really that few few acres of it well across across the UK. I want why is that unique and is now being given national accreditation as well. How long ago was that includes a few of probably fifteen years ago now? It's is passed even longer so they should be known fact checking particularly unique. Just it from from a country because it was the districts and stuff like this idea of communist kind of land. Is that something. That's replicated across the country. Yeah Dot an expo of similar. Aw I think the new forest it's thrived and continues a lot longer. Believe this seven hundred plus commodores in the forest and what we've done here is is much more unique to stick Leiria. You won't get anywhere much. THOUGHT IN X dot on wall up country so unique. I think it's something that remained within the families win the forest. Oh Oh that's not to say. Is that that somebody could purchase property-owning coming coming rights to it but this being families in the forest of carrying on the tradition really from from generation generation. And if I proud to be communists you know a lot of us have other jobs not just comedy see other people everyday jobs going out to work and just coming as a part time sidelines about takes quite a bit dedication. If you're if you're doing it part time it does take a long time and the benefit native of coming from the forest perspective. It's helping manage the ecosystem services a symbiotic relationship.

Why Do Dogs Yawn?
"Hey Lauren BOCOM here with another classic episode from our former host Christian Sager. This one is about one of my favorite topics. That's something of a mystery to science dog psychology and more specifically social yawning. Hey bring stuff. It's Christian Sager. I've got to come clean. I like dogs in fact I own A to my dog winchester. Does this thing whenever I get home from work where he super excited and he's jumping around all happy and then he starts yawning for some reason. Yeah I don't know maybe he's just tired or maybe he's waking up. I don't know but he seems pretty. Delighted in yawning is one of the primary ways. Dogs communicate in their whole complicated located system of subtle body language. It could mean several things. Did you know that yawning is actually the first expression. Dogs learn to use when they're tiny puppies so it has multiple meanings depending on the situation. A dog is in dogs. Usually Yawn when they want to send a pacifying or calming homing signal out to other dogs or people like hey everybody let's take a breather and just chill out. Ok Yawns have no element of fear or war aggression for dogs. It's like the exact opposite of a threat. So imagine this year in a fistfight and all you have to do is just be like yuan on nothing dangerous or intimidating here. Just I'm I'm like board but wait. Why would my dog do that to me okay? Sometimes dogs eggs yawn when they're getting obedience training. If a dog's frustrated he might be asking you to give him a little break that is if he sees you as the dominant one in your relationship it could also mean that your dog might be just cooling off his brain there's a veterinary behaviorist at. UC Davis. That thinks dog brains get hot. During periods of inactivity dog brains get warm because their circulation slows down so yawning supposedly cools rules. The arterial blood down helping the dog's brain function. There's one other thing that yawning dogs might mean dogs. Also Yon when when they're dealing with anxiety or uncertainty in this includes being excited so maybe my dog is just trying to control his enthusiasm and and also dogs yawn when they're nervous to like in a vet's office. Do you yawn when you're nervous. Check this out. Dogs can also catch which yawning from the human beings around them. You know how if you yawn than other people in the room around. You often start yawning. Will that often has to do with a person's capacity for empathy. You know feeling what somebody else feels. Well there was a study about this that was published in a journal called biology letters in two thousand and eight and they said twenty one out of twenty nine. Dogs yawned at least once in response to the yawn

"Have access if if brexit goes through on halloween louis in so we'll have cars everywhere i go i went to ostlund for the first time and i didn't have daughter daughter on my phone and so i had to do being in reykjavik i had to do something i hadn't had to do for quite a while which was actually to buy a map of the city centre use that to never got around and get an overall picture of the city in my head. I was surprised by much. I'd missed doing that. How pleasurable it was and still have a map of reykjavik in my head. Today what's been lost with g._p._s. an immense amount. I think it's as for me and i'm glad to hear what you've said. I mean the joy of maps is incalculable. I love the things i the book i'm working on at the moment is all about land ownership and i'm going back to scotland where some of the research i'm doing involves three islands the island of egg big the island of alva and the island of rosa and rasi back in one thousand nine hundred sixty five. I was in my second year at oxford and one of the things you have to do when you're reading. Geology is that you have to map six square miles of somewhere in the united kingdom produce a map of the the geology of somewhere and i chose almost at random the southern part of the island of rosza and produced. I got it out. I've kept my the paper. I wrote wrote. I lived in a roofless croft. I cooked over a primus stove incredibly lonely accept it could be sure that every time i went out with my geological hammer and my clean ometer and my compass my little bottle of hydrochloric acid if i did that on the sabbath on a sunday islander would come up and say you mr winchester. You're not supposed to be on the lot. Stay with your hammer. Go back and rest to reflect reflect. He was right. Go back in lyon. The ruthless croft for the rain to the map is such a joy to produce use. It's more or less right and what we lose the joy that you had in keeping reykjavik in your head which g._p._s. you've no idea about and and yes i use it all the time for convenience sake the so much precision behind the modern will what are the invisible aspects of this absolute bang on precision that have become an essential official part of our lives. Well good lord where where's stop. Where does it start. Them and g._p._s. is a classic example but i mean the steam engine. Let's start with that. The starting point precision has a birth date. We know when the very precise thing was ever made was born on the fourth breath of may seventeen seventy six two months to the day before the founding of the united states of america it was born in north wales on the fourth of may the steam engine had already been invented by james watt the simple fact that water when heated to one hundred degrees celsius celsius undergoes a phase change turns into a gas which is one thousand seven hundred and sixty times bigger than the water so from that you know you can and get work so how'd you do it. Well you have engine with a piston and cylinder on ratty of gears and so forth and source source of heat and a source of fuel water to turn into steam so what did all of that what he couldn't do was make a proper cylinder. He took us in those days seventeen seventy five and prior to make cylinder you took a sheet of iron and hammered habit until it formed a rough circle and then you welded it together gather turned it vertically load your pistol in it set everything work and as you might imagine with a with a cylinder made like that steam went everywhere it was highly inefficient just produced a lot of wasted energy. He couldn't get even get near the machine could be it was extremely dangerous. I was huffing and puffing behemoth breath with coveting this cloud scalding steam and it didn't create that much much much ed sort of useless but the the theory was entirely right seventy miles away to the northwest near denby was a man called john iron mad wilkinson. John wilkinson is an lunatic uncertifiable lunatic john iron mad because he loved iron. I have you had a lot of nine nine on mine but he used to puddles and hammers and do all sorts of things he made a desk automated table out of it made both out of it. He made a coughing out of it and this this was before the metoo movement really got underway he used to whenever calmly lady was apparently coming to his workshop he would lie fully closed in his own coffin and when she arrived spring out to surprise jolly japes you know well he's buried in that coffin today under an on obelisk but he made money in the seventeen seventy s by making cannon for the royal navy and he had developed a technique of boring a piece of van with a drill mounted on a very flat surface. This is where flatness comes in so that it wouldn't wobble as it advanced towards and drilled a hole in in the piece of iron and the whole that resulted might be only six or eight inches in diameter to accommodate the cannonball was more or less straight and more or less true so that the canon ball would fly out of it when the charge was applied so he was tired of turning this drill manually and he heard of this this man what who had made an engine that in theory could do this so he invited today he would pick up the phone and call what but in those days he sent a letter brin said would you come bring all the components for steam engine that will allow me to drill into these pieces of an to make cannons for the navy so what assembled assembled all of the bitsy could including cylinder made as i've described and the piston and the gears and the list put them in a horse wagon took them up to denby and he made machine filled it with coal filled with water. Let the cold and the things started moving but you can imagine wilkinson stony with his arms folded say you just don't know you didn't get it mr what exactly have welsh accent. I said i think he said i'll show you how to make cylinder. How big do you want. This system should have big should be and he said well well for big engine. Let's say thirty six inches and and a little bit to accommodate the piston and so they got an enormous beast on the big very hard drill and on this very flat surface board introduced took about a week but ultimately there was a hole in a piece of on thirty six inches and a little bit in diameter he lowered the piston into it and fitted like a glove and they fired it up. The fuel water boiled soft after jeff jeff. No steam left to all the thing was impeccably precisely made them with that on the fourth of may seventy and seventy six truly. The industrial revolution was born because what said to wilkinson this is marvellous. I'll have five hundred more cylinders and instantly factories all over england wales and scotland so in cities cities that really wants it is at all places like birmingham livable and magister in glasgow. Suddenly manufacturers had the ability to harness the power of steam. Turn things to make things from my point of view. I wanted to know the tolerance between the inner edge of the cylinder and the out torrential the piston that enabled it to fit so closely and they knew that the specifications what was to make a wilkinson was to make these cylinders too was that they would fit to the thickness of an english shilling of the time in an english shilling was one tenth of an inch so i i figured that this book is my editor was skeptical about how to organize this information so i said begin the book with things that have tolerance of point one of an inch and then the next chapter point zero one point zero one point zero one right up to today where ironically the most precise mechanical well thing or physical thing is made by humankind is also a cylinder. There are four of them two of them in washington state to in louisiana. There may not have done but of fused silica and they are the beating heart of what are called lie go. I don't if anybody he knows what lego is. The laser interferometer gravitational wave observatory. They detect slight changes in the shape of the earth breath. If as einstein predicted six gravitational wave passes through space time continuum because of the collision of black holes so something like that everyone thought this is an impossible thing to measure but li- go people nasa national science foundation figured it was possible if if you build big enough into verona's and at the heart of the infirmities that have now successfully detected five gravitational waves these cylinders beautiful things to behold held springs and all sorts of torsion balances and things they are made the surface of our so flat that they can detect changes in length of one ten thousand of the diameter ah of a proton and that is ten damage of approach on his tended the minus fifteen at another four zeros for ten thousand one times ten to the minus nineteen look. It's not a lot a lot so you're saying this is machine that currently exists in the world that let's can measure and almost vanishingly subtle effect created by a black hole light years away and to do use oh it manages. A tawny solution in the shape of the entire is it's exactly right. Why god i feel why i feel i feel that's quite dizzying and delightful and wonderful and troubling will the same time i wonder why i i went to the observatory in hanford in washington. You'll never interferometer is of course we do <music>. You're listening to richard's progress as an engineering conference. I was told well very very basically. If you can imagine too very long arms uh-huh exactly ninety degrees folklore has long actually and they've fired. You've got some prison where my chest is new fire laser into that prison which breaks it into who which travelled down to these cylinders that i mentioned it gets reflected back again. If the two tubes are exactly the same length when the laser beams are fired art than the two beams will come back together and if they're in phased and they'll simply reinforce each other it'd be a bright white light if however during the firing of these things because of a change in the shape of the earth one of the tubes becomes microscopically shorter than the other than the two light beams will come come back and we'll interfere with one another swipes called an interferometer and they will show bounds of color instead of white very easy to detect..
