Study: No partisan benefit from mail voting in 2020 election

"Mail in voting generated quite an uproar in last November's election but a new study finds it didn't particularly increased voting numbers and it didn't help the Democrats researchers from Stanford University used voting comparisons in Texas to conclude mail in balloting had zero effect on turnout with the study's lead author saying voter interest was really driving turned out more than convenience voting forms Democrats were more likely to vote by mail then Republicans in twenty twenty largely because former president trump had polarize the issue but that didn't help them win the election the Stanford study found that Democrats were equally less likely to vote early in person or on election day the research is only the latest in years of studies that found no partisan benefit to mail in voting hi Jackie Quinn

Accidentally Trashed, Thawed or Expired: Reports of Covid Vaccine Spoilage

"Of covert vaccinations picks up, So do the reports of doses going to waste and it's more than just a handful here and there. We're talking 300 doses in Lee County, North Carolina. 1000 doses in Palm Beach and in Tennessee. Nearly 5000 doses have gone to waste. In the last month, Blake farmer of member station to be PLN in Nashville looked into it. Most clinics or experience to giving vaccines but not ones that are so precious and so sensitive to temperature that definitely have been losing since Sleepover. This pressure, Beth Ann Wilmore manages the covert vaccine inventory at a community health center in Franklin, Tennessee. Nonprofit clinics in the state started receiving shipments a month ago. I was definitely waking up in the mill a knife. Wondering how the temperatures were doing and they get okay. I hope it's good. She knows the horror stories one from a county over happened Just a week ago, The local school district received 1000 doses for a teacher vaccination event, but they were put in an unapproved freezer. The temperature sensor on this shipment gave an error code and out of caution. They were advised to throw them all away. It hurts my heart. Dr. Lisa Pearcey is the health commissioner in Tennessee, which has seen one of the country's biggest spikes in reported spoilage. But it's one of the risks in having so many places to get the vaccine as a way to increase access. There are now more than 700 sites across the state. It definitely raises the level of Concern when you have more partners, particularly partners that aren't under your direct control. In Knoxville, 1000 doses were thrown out, apparently confused for a shipment of dry ice in Memphis. The county was slow to disclose that nearly 2500 doses were allowed to expire on several occasions. Local health director resigned, the state has stepped up audits and cold in staff from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor. There's so many opportunities for doses to go Bad in Florida workers turned the power off to a fridge in Connecticut. A fridge door just didn't close and Dr Kelly more of the immunization action coalition says a little spoilage is expected. Would be more worried if I saw reports of zero doses. Wasted transparency is the real concern. You want to see some waste because that means people are paying attention and that real world accidents happen and that they're being responded to properly. You could just don't want to see negligence. Reports of spoiled doses still come too far less than 1% of the total, even in states with big losses. There is hope that mishaps will be easier to avoid. With the newly authorized Johnson and Johnson vaccine. It can last in a normal refrigerator for months

Goodhart's Law in Reinforcement Learning

"Student at university. College london minds researches mauka manipulation if you have self trading algorithm does it learn to manipulate markets. And then going from that. How'd you stop it for many players in the market on cutting more generally how do you tell algorithm which runs a policy. How do you tell it. The certain things are illegal. Should be done. So it's kinda taking me on more security journey than i thought it would because of going into the world of experimental psychology lower because not market knows very interested in intent lieutenant and they're also interested in coz -ality my work at the moment is trying to establish will Like for an hour them and the what the beginning to be talking about today is connected to quality so is an area that really came up in my kinda full mold machine learning education and it was only probably just over a year. When i read a book by judy. Appel will the book of why a restarted get interested in the subject to causality and realize that it's something but isn't tool on isn't handled while a machine learning at all. And if you read the book. Paul is very adamant about the importance of alexey. In housing types of analysis simply can't walk without taking into account so it drew a question in my mind is wide or how machines machine learning techniques reinforcement dining. what when there's no explicit treatment of causality. it's all so that led to the dog brought to pipe official quoted by fulminate cool cool combo good health law enforcement butting so a reinforcement learning should be all about causality. You have an agent. He chooses actions that she's actions. That somehow changes the world. They receive some kind of award the world changes and so on so you think that reinforcement learning calls aleksey guy well together and actually if you to believe bill. They can't walk reinforcement. Dining should be able to work if causality isn't explicitly treated. But if you look at sutton a barter which is the canonical text on reinforcement. Learning a search for the wet causality. Causal anything like that pays exactly zero times in the book. So someone's gotta be wrong. Eva wrong in saying that actually k. nikon generate any kind of policy to solve a problem or reinforcement dining extremely lucky so far in the Questions that they've studied have contained any kind of interesting causal structure. I agree that the word causality is suspiciously missing from most of the reinforcement literature. Books and papers. I've encountered but it almost feels like it could be there implicitly. Could this just be a matter of semantics. Well that's the great hope from deep reinforcement dining. I guess that ye somehow by involving date neural network in order this somehow in that your network which is unknowable. Mysterious does the job of analysing causality. It doesn't automatically so you don't need to think about it. And it's done you don't need to worry about to me fulfillment dining works. So let's move on. And i guess there is an element of that because reinforcement dining does work. But it just made me think about if you look in science. In general there's a long history of humans discovery techniques which work with before actually understanding why they work so i was thinking about i on the on age was five hundred bc even saudi arabia and to make land. You need to take on all you. Smelted with coke and the coke burns in the air that produces carbon monoxide to carbon monoxide displaces.

We still had on tools. Said he didn't really matter that we didn't know why what it did kind of walk on. I like bit to reinforcement learning. Maybe the process. Which does what. It's a bit mysterious. Maybe ego to do things to get it to work. But the actual understanding as to white wax isn't diane. I think without an understanding of sally cardi understand.

The Most Distant Black Hole Ever Seen

"Astronomers of sudden you record for the most distant quasar ever found the quasar dating back some thirty point one. Three billion years is a thousand times more luminous than the milky way galaxy and is powered by the earliest known supermassive black hole a true monster more than one point six billion times. The mass of the sun the newly discovered quasar jazeera three one three minus eighteen o six and reported in the physical journal letters and on the pre press physics website archive dot. Org doesn't just provide new insights into the evolution of massive galaxies in the universe. It also raises profound questions. About how such massive black holes could have existed just six hundred thirty million years after the big bang. And that's a point underlined by the study's lead author for enjoying from the university of arizona. Who says black holes created by the very first massive stars simply could not have grown that large in only a few hundred million years the most distant quasars a crucial for understanding how the earliest black holes formed and for understanding cosmic realization the last major phase transition of the universe from the cosmic dark ages before the first stars quasars a powerful jets of mass and energy generated by black holes feeding on surrounding material as matter falls into a black hole it forms an accretion disc around the black hole event horizon a point of no return beyond which material falls forever into the singularity a place of infinite density and zero volume scientists understanding of the laws of physics breaks down material on the creation disc is ripped apart of the subatomic level by friction and gravitational forces releasing huge amounts of energy radiating out across the electromagnetic spectrum. The amount of energy emitted by quasars is enormous with massive examples such as this one being visible right across the entire universe. J zero three one three minus eighteen. O six was first spotted in data from the pan stars new kurt hemisphere survey with follow up specter from the keg in north telescopes to measure the size of its central supermassive black hole measurements from spectral lines that originate from the guests around the quasars.

Quasars important spiritual lines are red shifted to knee infrared wavelength by the physical expansion of the universe over the past thirteen point eight billion years.

NFL cuts expected to be a ‘massacre,’ ‘bloodbath’ next week

"We are on the fringe. We're nearing free agency. Actually just read a very interesting to tweet about a nfl coach. Saying that next week was gonna be a bloodbath. with the cap situation Do the covid that it's going to be a very interesting year. A lot of people are going to be getting cut prior to free agency to free up room. So we'll see what happens In you know the free agents were talking about might not even be like the big guys you know we end up signing at the end of the day so one big name we have been talking about and you specifically talked about this guy. Quite a bit is joni From new england the patriots are not going to use the franchise on him again. They can't do it. They they're cap situation would allow forward. I believe but with what you end up making the second time around. It really doesn't make any sense to them. As i was listening to boston. Sports radio their day like they were talking about that. Very topic so loonies. He's a big name. being fans. Love is a big often. Attack was out there And they've got to think about bringing their own guys. Back to william jackson in kara lawson entering free agency. So that's a big big names in some big money right there. What what can really afford to do. So that you you hit the list You hit you hit the big players. They're they have of course two big guys. Internally that are scheduled to be free agents in jackson and lawson one of those may end up getting the franchise tag. Probably the non-exclusive. If i had a bad at this point i'd probably say it's carl lawson and and we don't know the exact figures yet but they'll come out soon what the values will be But it's based position and since deandre get paid a little bit more than corners. Speed deanne tag is going to be a little higher. But i think that's a cost of the bengals are willing to take just to avoid the risk of losing carl. Potentially at an already weakened spot you know masterpass russia's spin has been existent Especially last year And i think room on bengals dot com had a couple of comments today from an article today saying they're looking to shore up the pass rush and he didn't mention actually edge rusher cement of course interior pressure which was good to see liu mentioned and we can talk about some interior linemen. Who are going to be on the market that could provide some interior. Pass rush to collapse the pocket if you will but to your question about what. They can't afford i. There is a way for them to structure these contracts with the amount of space that they have available. Of course we don't know what official cap will be just like we don't know what the tag amounts are going to be. We don't really know the final numbers quite yet. We know the cap can't go below one eighty But let's assume it stays right at that floor. I been under the working on the assumption that it's going to creep up to one eighty five rather optimistically but who knows if it gets that high. Is you mentioned kobe. Kobe tope took all essentially all the local revenues that these teams generated and made it two zero for almost all of them. There are some teams based on the cities and state. They were in that allowed some attendance. That really you know. It was a small percentage of what a normal season would be. So they're sitting in a good spot. Relatively speaking in terms of current cap space. There are about thirty seven million once you account for the almost eleven million. They rolled over last year. So at that point if they just stay there. They're they're currently line to be seventh most in cap space and that's a lot to work with in terms just resigning those guys internally and then going out on the market for tuning type of player ariba some more mid tier guys in the bond bell mold last year. You know a more of a modest deal where you get a lot of value in that regard but if they ended up staying put without making cuts and being seventh and cap space that gives them a lot of flexibility. But i think to your earlier point. We are gonna start seeing a lot more cut. We started seeing some today. There were some report. I think gave jackson the right guard for the raiders is not. There's a report that they they're looking to trade their right tackle trent brown. If they can't find a trade partner they'll likely cut him too. So the market's going to be flooded. It's going to be starting to be flooded. It's going to be even more so and on the bengals and they're likely to make some calm cap cuts. They don't need to make them because they have plenty of room. But just the value is not there to keep some of these guys on the books. You know the names. Bobby heart which will save just under five point nine million. Bj phinney will save three and a quarter million with no dead money and then of course geno atkins. We've talked about the gino situation Pretty at length and the question will be whether they released him. Post june one or or designated or releasing prior to june one or designate him or our releasing post you one which adds a little bit more savings to it but if you cut those three guys even if you don't cut gino with a post june one designation that adds about nine million in addition In additional cap space. So if you had that. Nineteen to thirty seven. Obviously naira almost sixty million and fifty six million give or take And that would baltim- in the top five of capital so they have a lot of flexibility to enter the long-term extensions with both their internal free and to go out on the market and signs of sizeable Upgrades hopefully on the offense line and positions that they they really need to

Bitcoin Isn't Acting Like Stocks, Stocks Are Acting Like Bitcoin

"What's going on guys. It is thursday march fourth. And today i am going to try to flip a mental model. Here's my proposition. Bitcoin is an acting like stocks right now. Stocks are acting like bitcoin so it started this conversation. We need to hop on over to twitter where there is a lot of discussion right now around. Rising treasury yields when the year started the ten year treasury yield was at zero point nine three percent versus the closer to one point four seven percent it is now that yields spiked even over one point six percent last week. So what is driving the rise of these treasury bonds this. Us government debt in short. It's expectations of a stronger economy. Vaccines keep getting rolled out with new ones coming on the market which suggests that all american adults who want to can be vaccinated by basically the beginning of the summer simultaneously. You're seeing restrictions on businesses being rolled back and the market doesn't believe in fact that the fed is going to be able to keep rates as low as they've been or continue the sort of asset purchase programs to provide liquidity that they've been doing now. These rising treasuries have been causing havoc in the public markets and part of the issue is valuations the s. and p. five hundred is currently trading at twenty two ex expected earnings which is close to the highest. It's been in twenty years. In december two thousand nine six months after previous it was trading at fourteen acts with this means that even small changes in the treasury yields which is another way of saying small changes in how appealing bonds are as compared to stocks can cause major spasms particularly for tech companies which are trading at the highest earnings multiples. There is also. I should note some real wildness happening. In the repo markets ribaud stands for repurchase agreement and repos are collateralized short term loans which help financial institutions. Keep money flowing are used by the fed to conduct monetary policy basically the repo rate is a measure of financial institutions with cash willingness to lend on a short term basis. We saw it in insane. Spike in september twenty nineteen when the overnight repo rate rose's highest ten percent and there were still acquitted. He crunches it. Seems like there's something big going on right now in the repo market that we might need to discuss but for the sake of this conversation i wanna keep more broad basically sum up treasuries or freaking equities out and even bringing bitcoin into the conversation. Aucoin desk headline article today reads. Bitcoin hovers below fifty k. As traders await feds take on bond yields quote according to analysts. Comments powell is monitoring events in the treasury market. Might be enough to calm things down encouraging return to a softer dollar that could bode well for bitcoin. Stocks both assets have mostly moved in the opposite direction to the dollar index over the past twelve months however the rally in yields may accelerate leading to a stronger dollar and weaker bitcoin. If powell downplays concerns over rising bond yields taking cues from his european central bank counterparts quote. No such concern from powell would suggest the fed is happy for treasury yields to find the right level as our bond strategy colleagues say potentially triggering another spike in yields and more dollar short-covering ing analysts noted. So what do people think powell is going to say in. Today's comments many things. That powell will try to convince markets that the bank will be ultra patient in any pullback of support for the economy some like bloomberg. Don't think he'll explicitly say they're going to cap long term interest rates instead most think that he will reaffirm the feds determination to meet their updated. Inflation and employment goals employment specifically has been the key here basically. The fed has been more or less saying that they are willing to do whatever it takes until full employment is achieved so even if it seems like markets are steaming. That's fine as long as they can get to full employment. They already previewed this position this week. With comments from fed governor lael brainard who said that. The fed has quote quite a lot of ground to cover to meet its objectives. The question becomes what tools the fed actually has. The first is words. What bloomberg calls forward guidance light fed is currently buying one hundred and twenty billion dollars of assets per month eighty billion and treasuries and forty billion in mortgage backed debt. They could potentially be explicit about when they intend to scale that back rather than leaving it to market guesses they could also be even more definitive and precise about what it would take for them to raise rates. What if words don't work however what would come next while there could be some more. Extreme courses of action. Bloomberg discusses to the first is a resumption of operation twist in which the fed would eliminate their holdings of t. bills which are shorter maturation of usually a year or less and put money into longer dated securities. The benefit would be that it would alleviate downward pressure on t. bill rates which are currently threatening to go negative.

"The big game in the premier league today. It was liverpool against chelsea liverpool. Losing one nil. They've now lost five straight home league games for the first time in club history. Stevie nickel how has it come to this. Oh my goodness well as being a slippery slope I remember sitting here. What thirteen games ago liverpool. It's operatives league they had west brom coming up at newcastle coming up. They had only coming up. And we're talking about who's gonna stop liverpool routine in this tale. Thirteen games live like the forgotten how to play a front three. It destroying any defense was from can seem t- holiday short and i mean one show on goal today whole tells you the problems liverpool have going forward and of course we can say is unlucky so only so many times defensively but when you've got an this game today to defend with experience of of alexander arnold and forbidden new causing the goal then you can excuse so listen a team that feting games ago was straightened towards the title has gotten to the stage where this is not a surprise. This is actually when the final whistle went today. I wasn't surprised because this team is playing like a team that struggling as getting results like a team struggling and guess wha the struggling and is going to continue. I don't see an end to done given the problems that they have indefens- should club using more pragmatic approach. Not really. i agree with stevie exactly the same when they add west brought new castle after the seven zero win against crystal palace all it would move in weeks for liverpool. Thought stride clare. We can't keep blaming injuries because defensively it's never really been a problem. Little put off the power from man. City it's offensively where you start now live you. Think they all shot-shy the top end of the pitch. There's no confidence whatsoever. Most salga dragged off tonight Shutters huckabee rush back for beano to be rushed. Saudi-omani doesn't the same laugh. You can't reach them. What he does in terms of he's linka play but all of that's just not enough at the moment and liverpool.

Money Myths That Can Cost You

"In today's episode. I'm going to tell you about some miss around money. I want you to be aware of also extended warranties. Are they ever worth it. Well we gotta talk because there's something over the years that has puzzled me where i've had. It's got to be in the hundreds of times. I've had people say to me that they lead balances open on their credit cards because they wanna raise their credit score and it shows that there's a a lack of some level of understanding about how credit reporting works and credit scores so much so that survey that lendingtree did in january found that just a whisker under half of people think that. That's true that you don't want to even if you can afford to pay a balance on a credit card a month two zero. You don't wanna do it. Because well i'm going to buy a house or i'm going to do this or that or the other and i got to raise my credit score and i don't know where this urban legend started but the reality is there is zero benefit to leaving a balance open on a credit card because you're paying to average credit card somewhere around eighteen percent interest and when you have an open balance the charges he may going forward. The interest is accruing right away daily interest when you pay the balance and full on a card you have a grace period and then you pay that balance that you developed during that billing cycle in full you got an interest free loan from the credit card company now i liked that so whatever wherever however that legend started that is good for you to run a balance. Forget it you know something else. A third of people believe that using credit cards is bad for you that you always wanna use debit card. So i don't know where that one started. The reality is if you've listened to me for any period of time. You know what. I call a debit card. A piece of trash. Fake visa are fake mastercard the credit card it developed as a product during a time that the congress was not corrupt bought and paid for by who they got money from and so congress wrote into law consumer protections for credit cards. There was no thought no idea of debit card. When those rules were developed in the nineteen sixties. You fast forward. The debit card is a product. Really the tens fifty years later so the debit card in an era that the congress is controlled by corporate contributions. the debit card has no consumer protections at all. That's why you see all those endless ads from visa trying to con you into using the debit card from the banks pushing you to use the debit card because it is such a powerful win for them when you use that debit card. Because let's say you buy something online. Use that debit card and the merchant. Never since you the merchandise what happens to your money. it's gone. What happens if the merchant lies to you about the goods and send you something very different than what they represented with a debit card. You're done your money's gone with a credit card under the federal law. I'm telling you about. It was designed in the nineteen sixties. You have these protections in no there. Were not dinosaurs roaming the earth and the nineteen sixties like my kids thing but you have protections to dispute a purchase with a credit card. No such right exists under the law ned. The banks could have gone to congress when they came up with the idea. Debit cards and not fought having these protections but consumers never even got a fair hearing on having any protections with debit cards. But wait it gets worse. So what happens if a crook duplicates your credit card number or steals your credit card. And they're using it. They're using your car. They're using your number your possession your car. You don't even know how they got your number but they're using it. What's your risk. What's your liability with a credit card. Generally zero maximum fifty dollars in the worst circumstances but again no money is left to your hands. You've just dispute those charges with a debit card. What happens well the criminal. Mtc checking account. You have overdraft. They emptied that to. You can have checks bouncing all over the place and the bank is even allowed to collect. All those bounced check charges. And you were a victim of a crime but wait. It gets worse under the rules. Wait there's more under the rules. The bank is the judge jury and executioner on the determination. If you committed the fraud or was done by a fraudster. They are given two weeks to decide and after two weeks. I can say tough. We think you did it. And you're out the money you're out the money or they can issue a temporary credit and then continue whatever their fake investigation is or after two weeks can give you your money back

Amazon Workers’ Union Drive Reaches Far Beyond Alabama

"This hour we are talking about the union drive amongst amazon warehouse employees in bessemer alabama and. Why people in the world of labor and In modern american business are paying very close. Attention to how workers in alabama might vote As it could change a lot given the size of amazon the corporation now amazon is so big that we're kind of also informally launching a series. Hear about all the ways in which amazon is changing all of our lives so focusing on labor here today. if there's an area of life that you think amazon is changing and you'd like us focus on You know hop on to social media. Twitter facebook at on point radio and let us know what you'd like to us to look into or you can also give us a call at six one seven three five three zero six eight three looking for your ideas on areas of life that you want to learn more about that amazon. Might be changing. I'm joined today by steven. Greenhouse he's labor and workplace journalist author of beaten down worked up the past present and future of american labor karen weiss is also with. She's a new york. Times correspondent covering amazon microsoft and the pacific northwest's tech scene. She's with us from seattle. Now karen we heard from michael foster the union organizer there before the break. I wanted to ask you more about the the one of the fundamental things. He talked about which was worker. Dignity pay is one thing but worker dignities another and i think amazon's got a pretty long list of Of incidents if i can call it that where does lead one to questions of how they view or how much they the importance they have of warehouse. Worker dignity right there was they. Fires warehouse workers who spoke out about insufficient safety protocols regarding regarding covert in two thousand and twenty We've heard we've read stories. Maybe you've even written them caring about like response to being used to monitor warehouse workers and all of that. How does amazon see see people. Why think a lot of a lot of this is workforce is so large that it has almost by necessity but also just by the amazon. Ian nature tried to create Systems and rules and technology to manage them. And so when you heard. Michael talk a lot of things. We're talking about rebellious kind of technological. Productivity measurements and tools and operational tool amazon has to manage. Its workforce you know Student brought up a good point earlier about unions aren't necessarily a third voice that's that they've representative workers and i think i was free support the amazon. That's a third voice but same time You know it has ways that it listens to workers now but it's not the same as having the workers voice representatives through a union and so for example. They have boards in voice amazonian brussels onboard. People can complaints or compliments not different things but the way they use that at a global level is they use artificial intelligence and natural language processing to figure out matic patterns in it so they they had to and also broke out of bear amazonian techie. Way have developed these kind of technological relationships with workers which is which is different than how even the walmart's an immense growth. What was fifteen or so years ago when it went through. it's huge. that's a different relationship numb when you the feedback workers get is often from rate ticker essentially on their on screen which is different than being a cashier in a store and bringing people up karen that is so fascinating. The algorithms are absolutely everywhere. Oh my gosh. So here's here's basis in two thousand eighteen in an interview with business insider talking about why he says he's proud. Not only of the wages of amazon pays cause remember two thousand eighteen. There is a minimum of fifteen dollars an hour but also how he says. The company treats its employees in our view. We have we have workers councils and we have very good communications with our employees. We don't believe that we need a union to be an intermediary between us and our employees but of course at the end of the day. It's always employs choice. And that's how it should be steven. What do you think. I'd be surprised to hear that amazon. Actually has workers councils. That's you know. And if they are workers councils than i imagine they might be handpicked by management and with the union the workers pick representatives and under federal law executives are required to sit down and listen to the workers concerns. Yes amazon says that it listens to workers but it's really unclear the degree to which they really listened. I remember years ago. I wrote walmart. Walmart would say for worker has a complaint. We have an open door policy. Come in and complaint show us. And i interviewed many workers who use the open door to file complaints and then they got fired soon after and they said the open door policy is actually the out the door policy. I'm not saying that's the case amazon. But i think you know. Some companies are so much cynical when they say they really listen. I'm sure karen has spoken to amazon. Workers who have heard who have voiced the same complaint. I hear say they feel like they often feel like robots. I interviewed a worker at the best. My warehouse daryl richardson. Who said he's a pickering to three hundred fifteen items our that's five items omitted and he says you feel like a robot and if you fall behind you risk getting fired several workers who said and if we have to go to the bathroom run a few hundred yards and take a few minutes to do that We might fall behind and that and if know and if you've got to go to the bathroom a whole lot in a certain day might end up risk getting fired so they feel that they're not listened to enough and many feel that there's a lack of dignity in the pressure that's put on them every

The Fight Over The Future Of Natural Gas

"Keeps your apartment warm Okay i know i know. Our electricity is some mix of renewables. But i'm pretty sure that our heat is gas right and so many people are in exactly the same situation about half of the homes and businesses in the country a burn gas for heat in the winter especially in the cold part of the country. Right plus a lot of people have gas water heaters. This is basically your own little fossil fuel power. Plant right there in your basement and it really adds up between heating homes and businesses burning fossil fuels on site accounts for more than ten percent of the whole country greenhouse emissions. Wow okay all right. And i'm glad we're talking about this because i feel like i remember. Natural gas has been pitched as this cleaner fuel cities. You know buying buses running on compressed natural gas and that's supposed to be a good thing question mark while it is cleaner. It was cleaner than the diesel that those buses were burning. And it's a lot cleaner than coal but you know when you're putting up buildings and installing equipment. That's going to be in place for twenty thirty fifty years. Maybe cleaner isn't good enough anymore. I'm killed really bad about this. Fossil fuel plant. I've got my house now again. Guilt about this is not the point. The point is there is an alternative Another path at least for new buildings and also for when a lot of other buildings you need their furnaces replaced. Okay okay and i talked to one of the people who's pushing this alternative ali hundred mahia cunningham with the natural resources defense council. We're going to have to tackle emissions from pretty much everywhere. The benefit of buildings is that we have the technology. Okay dan what technology we talking about. It's got a name electrification. I like the name. But i i do feel like with electricity. I mean there are greenhouse gas emissions from generating electricity to right right absolutely for now but the thing is if your goal is zero greenhouse emissions burning gas will never get you there but electricity could if it's coming from places like solar and wind and hydro which increasingly it is so the environmentalists are saying if you're putting up a new building making decisions for decades to come. Don't lock yourself into burn guests. Give yourself the chance to be zero. Carbon got it. Okay but what does that. Look like dan. Well let's go to our next story like sitting here. We have tyler holland. Who works with construction company called wiedeman corporation and he is going to give us a little audio tour to explain this whole electrification idea like sixth all electric apartment building that. We've done john reid from our member station k. u. e. r. actually recorded this was masked and socially distanced. Mike was out on the end of a long pole. Now that la this buildings six stories high still under construction not many people around so this is an affordable housing project now in most buildings in salt lake city and really lots of places in the us where it gets cold there would be a pipe underground going into this building. Delivering gas to heating furnaces. But here in this building. There's no gas hookup. Its all electric. Every apartment has an electric heat pump on the wall which takes care of heating and cooling. Okay dan i feel like i should know this. But what what's a heat pump The heat pumps are basically the key to electrification They work pretty. Much like refrigerators. They use compression and expansion of a gas to move heat from outside to inside or the other way around in this case the heat pumps are capturing heat from the air outside and moving it inside the apartment for heating and in summertime. they do the opposite. They'll move heat from the inside to the outside are also heat. Pump water heaters. I will tell you from personal experience. They have gotten so much more efficient and they just work better than they used to. Are they really expensive. Though for big buildings the machines themselves can be more expensive than say a gas furnace or a standard of water heater. Which is why tyler said. They only did their first all electric building. Because there was this environmentally-minded developer give group. That insisted on it. Tyler's company thought this is terrible. It's going to cost a lot extra. But once they started working on it they say turned out to be cheaper. You eliminate gas taps you eliminate running all those gas lines through your building so by not putting all that gas infrastructure in there. You're kind of saving money. Right and now tyler company is totally sold on this. They're sharing their blueprints and budgets with other builders just to show them that it makes sense for business for the climate also just for cleaner air. We everybody to do it. I mean it's it's everybody's air that we're all breathing makes my mountain bike ride that much easier and the basic idea is down the road. This building will have zero greenhouse emissions once. It's getting that electricity from the sun or the wind or from falling water Okay got it. So will we see more building like this around the country. A lot of cities with big climate goals are trying to promote all electric buildings like this. They're really focused. On new construction not so much. Retrofitting existing buildings. Nobody's forcing people a tariff. Their gas furnaces at this point and salt lake city is not considering any formal ban on new gas hookups. Vicki bennett who's director of sustainability. There says they'd like to try persuasion. Incentives maybe expediting building permits at our next step is exploring what sort of incentives would be would make a difference you know what would be enough to get them to pay more attention to going to all electric buildings but there are cities dozens of them mostly in california that have adopted rules that say in one way or another new buildings cannot get connected to gas pipelines anymore So that's what that person from. The american gas association was talking about like at the top of the show. The campaign against gas exactly and that movement reached the third place. We're going to go visit flagstaff. Arizona whom where nicole anti-monopoly is director of sustainability. that was one of our strategies. Could we say no new natural gas in new construction. And this is where they run into the backlash. Yeah i imagine. The gas industry wasn't happy about this. Not really we have seen some internal documents from a meeting of the executive committee of the american gas association last year An environmental watchdog group that climate investigation center obtained these documents through a public records request. And they showed that by late. Two thousand nineteen a group of big gas utilities had already launched a campaign in favor of what they call consumer choice. One of them is southwest gas. The biggest gas provider in arizona and in february of two thousand twenty. The speaker of the arizona state house introduced a bill that makes it illegal for cities in the state to limit gas hookups. Republicans generally supported it and in arizona. The law just sailed through a passed both houses and signed into law within a month. So what does that do to to the city of flagstaff. Plans nicole antenna says it pretty much left them looking for a plan. B it definitely put a huge hurdle in our plans for promoting electrification and fuel switching Instead of requiring developers to go all electric they have to persuade them to the approach. Utah's taking and since then similar bills have passed and three other states and they're being considered in a dozen more cleaning. Florida georgia whole bunch of states. Well so this is my question about the like you know. Consumers can choose. I mean our individual consumers actually choosing here dan or is the developer kind of choosing for the consumer. It is an interesting conflict. You have these states stepping in and they're saying on behalf of consumers although it's also on behalf of the gas suppliers right no you. Cities cannot interfere with the consumer's right to burn gas or the developers right to build a gas burning building and the cities are saying just like we have building codes for public safety. We want to enact rules that will help end climate change and that means no new construction that uses fossil fuels. So they're saying the community is making this choice and we should have the right to choose right. I mean that's what it kind of felt like we were talking about kansas way back at the beginning of the episode. Felt like the folks in lawrence have decided on this goal which is one hundred percent renewable which means down the road. Gas wouldn't be an option like that's the choice. Yeah i asked. Jasmine more. The city of lawrence's director of sustainability. How this would affect your city's plans if it passed. And she said it's kind of hard to tell. But the bill is written. Very broadly it prohibits any municipal ordinance that quote discriminates against restricts limits or impairs. Close the use of a utility. So she's worried that it might even ban city programs that are aimed at promoting energy efficiency since that would reduce gas use. Wow that's pretty intense. Then she also said this no matter what. We'll figure out a way to continue to make progress. She sounds pretty determined. I'll say that yes. She does okay. Dan charles as always we appreciate you. Thanks for bringing this to the show. Thank you

How To Clean Up Your Goals

"So with this often looks like for teams is having some kind of metrics. We've talked about this surely hundreds of times on this show before the idea of an objective and a key result. That's the same thing as saying Some kind of goal Some kind of intention and proof that you've met that intention or in some ways the The key results is the definition of success on that pathway towards that goal and so most teams set these most teams. And when i say most teams set these i mean that most teams have have some kind of way of evaluating success. But most of the time. They're not doing it in a way. That's measurable what i mean by this. Most teams will have. Let's say quarterly reviews. I most teams are going to have some kind of where the rubber meets the road moment. But the backwards thing is that most teams are not explicitly defining these these are sometimes softer metrics and often. They're not optimized or measurable in any meaningful way so you probably are measuring it but you're probably not measuring the same way that someone else says and so success means different things to different people on the same team. This is most critically important when you have a difference in your definition of success. And some stakeholder or Someone who is responsible for financing team or financing your job. Someone who is going to decide whether or not you're going to continue working in this capacity if you have different definitions of success between those layers you can come into some really damaging problems for teams and this creates a lot of miscommunication. Not to mention that you're probably not going to meet your goals as team as a company. So what i want to talk about today is fixing this problem. I starting by actually measuring something that you can both agree on. But then i want to go upstream and we'll talk about that upstream part in just a moment but first sock about what it means to have a shared. Measurable goal shared measurable goal. Means that if i as an outsider and given the proper measurement tools i can have the same measurement as an insider would have in other words. The measurement should be observable. It should be a concrete measurements. Something that is definitive and available a good example of this might be percent change in some particular number. Another good example might be a particular rate Of of a particular event occurring other examples include a reducing a number from some Magnitude to another magnitude sometimes even two zero and there are even good measurements that are binary where we can say. True or false. This thing For example did we publish the thing that we set out to publish right. That's a that's a good example of a binary key result will stick with terminology. So it's just as important though since we've kind of given a definition for what a good key result might look like we need to talk about. What a good key result doesn't look like or more specifically what bad key results might be so remember. The definition here is that anyone given the proper tools and access could come up with the same measurement And these are outsiders right. These are people who don't need context. A bad key result then would be something that requires context or requires some kind of institutional or cultural knowledge to be able to measure. Now this once again. We're not talking about access or you know how to how to filter that data or something like that. We're talking about measures that are based in someone's state of mind or opinion or in some collective since of of satisfaction.

Income caps to get the full $1400 check remained the same $75,000 a year for individuals. 150 grand for couples. The version approved by the House bill would have given smaller amounts on a phase down basis. Individuals making up to 100,000 and couples up to 200,000.

Culture Myths and a New Science of Culture Dr. David White - burst 04

"At the top. Okay david. Help me out here wool. You mean culture doesn't are you saying culture doesn't start at the top so the prevailing wisdom is that the leader says the culture right. This has been true. And it's the most complicated mantha one eyed about the most inc to Because it's the one that's most pervasive is most entrenched in our in our society and for good reason right. I go into a lot of his historical lot of it. Is this country. America founded on this sort of faith of the individual of pia rugged individualist myth right Quaker cavernous Protestant settlers from europe in england. Who came over in the seventeenth century. You know believed firmly in the in the power of the individual leader to make change happen. All that carried forward into our society today The problem is that there is almost zero evidence in anthropology and other related social sciences. That supports the idea. The leaders somehow set culture create culture cultures. Form perfectly well without leaders. Any group tasked with any any task though cultural form generally speaking of the former around the task. The the the thing that you're doing now i as i get into in the book. The this myth about leadership came became super prominent in the late seventies early eighties. Because corollary to that. I mean along What was going on that time. Is that Folks in the business schools were discovering researching that this idea that basically humans in organizations are unmotivated people. Basically don't need you know need to be directed and manipulated in cajole to work to get work. Done that idea which had been around. Since you started the twentieth century was debunked in the late late sixties early seventies mid seventy s by researchers at mit and other universities in the idea the new idea of management. Was that essentially. If you could unlock the human potential of the individual you know and let them flourish in organization. Great things will come. You don't need to sort of manipulating coercing control and direct people to do work because people actually need their creativity unleashed so that was the famous so-called theory of motivation of organizations talk. The douglas mcgregor stuff like three x three x theory. Why right was the was the whole idea. So theory why. When theory y became the de facto new way of thinking about management in organizations culture became the convenient vehicle to enable theory y so in other words if you just let if you just create the right culture in the organization good things will happen and that's the simplest way of saying the most most predominant Myth that has lived with us to this day. That if you just make make the right. Climate make the right environment. Good things will happen in the organization. A very compelling myth. It's very well intended and got a lot of. There's a lot of good to there's no question there is. it doesn't support it right so huge you list five problems with why this myth that culture starts at the top is an issue problem. You leaders of overestimate thrown influence problem. Too complex change is not happy through individual influence problem. Three for leaders beliefs take hold in the organization. They have to be there to begin with and four cultures not the summer personalities and problem five language alone does not change culture and your research the research that well not just your research with research. That's been done here in cognitive anthropology has kind of blown open this idea that you know as leaders. We probably don't have nearly as much influence as we think we do. When it comes to culture because culture is going to exist with the leader. That i am i in that well said Because i think i think i consult businesses to and every because we need to change your culture. You change you your culture your culture you. You didn't create it. It happened right. It's kind of an organic thing. Isn't it in reality. Well as i as. I write about the book. It culture is as we'd like to say culture follows task right. The common way of thinking about it is that castles culture might just set. The culture in the task will actually goes the other way around what you do. This is the cognitive science of culture in on the brain. What you do shape how you think and to some extent you know. We talked about this cognitive science and culture being kind of academic kind of newfangled but in some ways. It's incredibly intuitive. You know this is culture shapes how you think so.

Supreme Court hears arguments in voting rights case out of Arizona

"There are no cameras allowed in federal court. Lord knows no cameras allowed in the supreme court Just the voices. We are able to hear the tapes in real time of the oral arguments. So here's what i have for you. This was oral argument today. Here is the lawyer for arizona. Gop getting questioned by justice barrett of the supreme court. And as you'll hear. He says the quiet part out loud when standards the interest of the arizona. Our nc here in keeping say the out of Precinct voter ballot disqualification rules on the books because it puts us at a competitive disadvantage relative to democrats politics zero game. So david i guess we're saying voter suppression out loud now in front of the kids are. If you've got a bad message bad candidate find a way to win by one kind of like what trump tried to do in georgia. Is that how it works. Unfortunately brian it's the way it's working now. I think it's gonna work for many years. Yeah give that lawyer and a for honesty but an effort democracy and listen. Joe biden gave us some great news on vaccination timing today. We see cases going on all over. The country obviously governors of texas and mississippi are gonna make our full recovery harder. But we're going to get through the pandemic. I think the biggest issue right now facing the country is these relentless assaults on democracy so january. Sixth was an abomination that will this country through history. Trump's coup attempt was unsuccessful. But what we're seeing is all across the country in dozens of states dozens of laws on the books now or they're trying to get past to make it harder to register to vote. There's even states like arizona where they want to give the state legislature the ability just to say if they don't like election results they can choose the different result so this is a relentless assault. So i know before the election. We said that democracy was on the line. And i think all the trump's loss gave his brian he was reprieved. Because this is going to be a systemic effort to try and rig elections the steel elections basically take away the franchise for people and to make. The electorate is old and white as possible

It's Not Just Texas: The Entire Energy Grid Needs An Upgrade For Extreme Weather

"The electricity grid is more than wires. It's also power plants big transmission towers and local utilities. Everything that gets electricity to you. Much of that infrastructure was designed for a different era says energy consultant alison silverstein. We plan this grid for us inherit weather and we are now facing mad max. These pop culture references are silverstein colorful way of saying that what worked in the nineteen fifties sixties and seventies needs to be updated for a future that includes climate change. Everybody has always designed these systems looking in the rear view mirror that made sense grid. Managers identified the worst case scenario from the past and planned for that but climate change is delivering whether that hasn't been experienced before the number of weather disasters with losses over a billion dollars is increasing according to the federal government and the group climate central says that since two thousand there's a sixty seven percent increase in major power outages from weather and climate related events. Each region has its own vulnerabilities. Take the pacific northwest. And it's massive hydropower dams for example. Not only do we need to be worried about the cold weather events like he signed texas and the the hot weather events like in california ben kiala is at the northwest power and conservation council. They recently changed their planning models to look ahead and better prepare for how climate change alters win water flows through the dams. He says warming temperatures make it likely that mountain snow pack will melt earlier in the year. And you have a lot more water running into those reservoirs in the winter when it used to be more of a spring phenomenon and it might be that by summer. You're pretty much. All the snow. Pack melted everything off. And you don't have that much precipitation and you just have way less energy in the summer grid. Experts generally agree. The country needs to build more transmission lines to get electricity from where it's produced to where it's needed. That would make it possible to add more cleaner. Sources of power like wind turbine solar projects in batteries to store energy. Larry gas diker heads wires. A trade group advocating for more high voltage transmission lines. He points out that president biden set a goal of net zero carbon emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five. That may sound like a long time from now but in the world of building transmission It's really not that far off when you think you need a good ten here. Lead time in order to get there and gas tiger says all that new transmission infrastructure big towers. Thick lines comes with a steep price tag. Our study said up to ninety billion dollars of investment by twenty thirty maybe as much as six hundred billion an investment by two thousand fifty gas tiger suspects the texas blackout. While encouraged policymakers to move on this issue. Soon as expensive as this sounds the texas experience shows. There's also a cost of not preparing the grid for more extreme weather in dollars and lives jeffrey. Npr

"G so so much of what makes wrestling work as a sport is knowing where someone center of gravity is taking them off of that center of gravity and watch them topple in a way that you control. So that you get there back to the mat, and I didn't finish giving the basics of wrestling. But what should be obvious to everyone is your goal is to get back to the man for any amount of time at all. And then you win. Okay. So. So it's so much is what are you doing against the force of gravity or with the force of gravity? Yes. Right. It's the combination of those two and the more you can explain that. Then the more potent wrestler, you are in zero g. It's not clear how you would design such a sport that way. So if I grab you and sort of pull you in one direction, there's no friction against another surface, and you just sort of rotate back the other way, right, right? You'll be this tumbling ball of flack hall of flannel. You just entwined with one another sort of push you. And then if I push you away, then you just float away forever. Right. Not coming bell slowed away. Thank you both away from each other each other, right? Right. Right. So part of the gravity the need for gravity is gravity is what gives you friction against the men. Right. Think about it. I. Hey, you have if I made you lighter and lighter and lighter you have less and less friction against the met like if one move furniture, but you're not strong enough to pick it up entirely put on a slide or or or you just lifted up mostly right, then you can fight it. Right. You've reduced the friction between the furniture and thing enough. So that you can slide without having lifted entirely with all your muscles. So if if it is not touching or has any weight on the surface at all, then there's not that you can just move it. Right. So so I don't know that I don't think you can have wrestling. So you so then you would have to have some gravity like maybe on the moon dead. So that's one six grab on the moon. Yes. So you need a bigger ring. Because I take pick you up. You know, you could throw you farther, right? But but in pro wrestling, they throw each other in sort of actual wrestling. No. So the inter collegiate and Olympic wrestling. Confined the space and not just have a single Matt you have to have like a cube of which you mean. Mccoy's match. No. I just think you I mean right now, here's a thing in a wrestling match. There's a circle. Yes. As long as what is basically your center mass with your opponent is inside the circle you can have limbs sticking outside the circle in. It's not a problem. Right. And if I'm in control, and I'm about to pin you and you try to wiggle your way out the circle at bring your back in the right, right? And the referee won't allow you to escape if I'm still in control with you. And I'm going to circle in you're not they'll still give it to me to to pin you to compete complete my move against it. So okay. Gotcha. So my so that's a wall is not the right concept. Just thinking of multi wolves for for for Matt going up you going left or right down. But that was my full. Oh, I see what you're saying in zero g. Oh, you have circling above below and on each side. So if you did push yourself away, you'd hit the wall bounce back. And you're back in business, right? As you came back into the middle. Okay. It's very clever have to think about that's a first for me. Thank you. It would it would be walls at all direct in all directions. Yeah. Yeah. Cool. Cool. But then you'd have to add like some kind of I don't know..

"From the American even natural this. We're talking about aboard the international space station, featuring my interview with the guy who was there for nearly a year Scott Kelly. I had to ask the question that we all want to know the answer to how do bathrooms work in space. Check it out. Zero g toilets. They work. Okay. For you, very complicated toilet, and it works. Pretty well. Should it be complicated? You got to separate the air from the urine sent to a tank that also the whole the whole toilet system the system and some of the urine and use want to talk about the toilet. I'm also talking about the water process recovery recovery system that turns their urine into drinking water. So it's pretty sufficient even though intellectually, I know that's an entirely doable thing. Yeah. Just emotionally that just nasty. Yeah. Like, I drank my p for a whole year, right? Right. Actually, everyone's p exactly. What happens to all? That is not the two from the urine. What happens to that? It's put into a container, and then we eventually when that tank fills we put them into smaller tanks, send him down to the Russian segment. They put them in the progress. Resupply. Ship eventually burns up in the atmosphere. Then that tank all eventually come back with urine in it. We put an entire system we turn it into water Benchley, Brian what? So what burns up in the fear the whole progress spaceship oak. So that's spaceship is designed it's garbage disposal system. Exactly to know that and that is critical resource. The ability to get garbage off of spaceship is something that is not not simple. So Terry if you can't just Jek garbage out roll down the window throw garbage out you can't because there might hit something else. Well, so you really have to send the stuff away. Right. So if you just ojected it first of all, you'd waste air it every time you open up the airlock some air goes outside. So you don't want to do that. And second of all if you're throwing your roll down the window. You could do that one can do anything. But if you're checking your trash out the space, then you're suddenly orbit next to giant can of poop. Right. So you you want you wanna put it a spaceship and let it fly away and not just kind of have it hover. They're right next to you in orbit with you. So what do you tell me that your pee and poop or the stuff of the P that was not returned? Plus the poop vaporize on reentry and has descended as molecules. Rain on our? Yes, it is in the last time. I'm opening my mouth looking up in the rain. Nothing like astronaut poop is scattered into. So I didn't know that there's a whole ship that is on a one way mission to collect garbage and burn multiple and taking trash ways of big deal. Like just like at my house. I have a role at the house like for every pound of stuff that comes in so many gotta clean out of stuff and take it to good will or throw it in the trash. Here..

There's there's it's it's like the simplest print you could make when I want to see a benching man exactly see they're thinking focused purely on can they use the three D printer to print things that they need in space. Yes, that's fine. Of course. That's an important thing to do. Do one hundred percent, but that's a research facility. Right. And we're paying for research. Yeah. And it doesn't cost them up. Penny. More to provide us with the information. Yeah. I I wanna know not not Canet print things as well as we can print them on in full, you know, one g gravity. I learned is can't do things better there because of the lower significantly reduced gravity there. I added they're not they're not showing I have theory. I have a theory that if we could look close enough and understand the difference between what we see printed in zero g versus what we see printed in one g that will teach us about how to do better with F D N in one gene could be.

Instead, they're holding close to the chest. They're probably figuring out how to patent three to your printing in space. So that they're the ones who can do it. Tell you. I'm going to start writing letters. Okay. I'll put producer of the three D printing podcasts to see if I can if I can, you know, bug them. I'll go look for that business card of the people that we did. Sure. Z rattlesn- cages, we'll see. What happens? Meantime, what's coming up in our show this week? Well, we start out talking about prepping for a three D printing class. And then I'm gonna talk a little bit about the what I believe are the essential add on you're going to want to put onto your new enter three. And then we talk about the diamond hot end. Boy.

"That's true. That's why we have these tests. We're talking about just a couple of years ago if t one launch of the vehicle, it's going to take people into deep space. We did it without people. I, the test a couple of things we're going to do it again without people first because we have things the think about one of the things you were talking about though is entering into the emotional state to understand the series of events after something goes wrong to understand how to react to that, what you do as authors to enter into that space mentally to really get into the mind of what would happen in jewel concept in Seidel concept. How do how do you get there? You'll hear a phrase a lot of times that you write what you know and and I think that what we're doing a lot is that we're extrapolating from what we know. So like I went to watch a Dev run at the NBL and I'm never going to get in the NBA. L. pool, but I knew I can. I can. I know what going into water is like I know from professional hepatic, I know what really uncomfortable positions look like when when chill out of the got out of the EMU I was watching his hands and it was like the movements. He's doing exactly the things that I do in puppet is over. The controls are overly stiff. I know what that feels like. So a lot of what we do is we wind up extrapolating, I will. How would I feel in that situation? What is my lived experience? What aspect of that is, is ten gentle to this? And then the everything we do is we look a lot at at how people react through history. There's they're very predictable ways that groups of people react. There's cycles that we go through the way children interact with their parents. There's a, there's a cycle that we go through where we venerate. In fashion venerate the natural world in the tr trend over into venerating the artificial world. And so children who have grown up with parents who venerated the artificial will push back by venerating the natural, which is how you go from the information age into the into the the local first thing. So knowing that when I'm looking at the future and I'm trying to extrapolate like, what is this like on a space station? That's you know, that is permanently inhabited by generations of people I have to, I think about those generational pushes in polls. So it's that kind of of back and forth and thinking about patterns that wind up doing a lot of just sold a new science fiction series so new that it's not even in any of your notes. It's a, it's a middle grade science fiction. The first books called zero g and sold it to audible. They're making it one of their big flagships. And we've, we've talked about how.

"Zero g workaround designed for the ISS particularly as it involves the use of centripetal force to create artificial gravity in ways that I don't think you've discussed before, namely, rather than creating gravity for the entire space station or spacecraft by having the whole thing constantly revolve. Instead, you can create localized gravity within the station or craft by spinning platforms, etc. For specific purposes, such as exercise, Robert, I think we did talk about that a little bit and artificial gravity episode, didn't they? Yeah, I think we. We did. We may not have. I don't think we discussed it in the coffee at the side. That's true. But the artificial gravity episode, I think we explored that angle, but if I'm wrong, maybe that's worth a look in the future. Anyway, Evan continues quote. It was about twelve years ago when I was a horrendously impoverished university student, I needed money pretty desperately and didn't have much time or willingness to work in those days. So a friend of mine in the biology department mentioned to me that there was a bulletin board for the bio cya mid school area of the campus, which listed opportunities for students to take part in faculty members, experiments as paid subjects. I found one that offered decent pay applied and was immediately accepted all without enquiring about or being informed of the nature of the experiment. The money was decent, so it seemed to good to be true as it turns out a professor of surgery. I soon it was Dr Anton Jessop if I recall correctly had designed a machine to counter the deleterious effects of zero g environments on the human body and was having it tested to see about trying to get it on. On the ISS. It was basically a pillar installed in a small, empty room fastened at floor and ceiling and outfitted with two arms which ran horizontal to the ground. The arms could spin one of the arms terminated in a bicycle and the other in a small platform. The idea was for one astronaut to peddle the bicycle, the spinning the arms while another astronaut would stand on the platform and do exercises. Both astronauts would thereby get in some crucial exercise at immeasurable and adjustable level of artificial gravity. There was a monitor on the bike with a readout about the various relevant forces at play speed, approximate number of Jesus to which the exercisers were subjected at cetera. Something that's small man. I would worry about Coriolis forces on that. Yeah, I mean, I'm getting a little dizzy and nauseous, just imagining this in my head. Yeah, so Evan continues. It sounds all well and good, but for two facts that in order to measure the effects muscle biopsies were required before and after each workout and that I have a pen. Pensively for horrible motion sickness. The first time I gave it a go. I made it through a few sets of rapidly spinning squats at higher than normal gravity. Then when the machine began to slow at spin, I got horribly sick and threw up everywhere. Vomits flattered on wide swaths of floor and wall, of course, as I was still spinning fairly quickly at that point. So I went into the control group. He went into the control group quote, which did just normal squats to provide some frame of reference for the efficacy of the machine..

"Yet these microgravity experiments so you we've talked about this zero g we've had a sky lockwood said she went up and came back came by down down gain you've got the drop towers as well as dropping something down it's how an virgin galactic his is looking to sell space on a spaceship to these microgravity experiments how much value to they have compared to actually being in in space and being able to do these things continuously every experiment has a different set of parameters some people need a long time and space and that's where the space station is the only way you can do that but not everybody dozen it's much more expensive descent things up into open the experiments we were doing with the university of brighton team they will fight for the pera for the parable it flight we you could see the phenomena in the twenty seconds and it didn't matter that you went between hypertrophy and zero t somebody i was just talking to the other day was looking at wanting to test a new form of fuel tank and i was actually saint them the suborbital flights that are coming off a probably going to be just the thing twenty seconds isn't long enough you don't need to go all the way into space perhaps so everybody has a different set of requirements and we need a lease different facilities to to match those earned and just skyrocketed by a british rockets if you like i mean weakening back at least two thinking about that aren't we in the uk i mean this this launched campaign and launch uk campaign by the uk space agency at the moment to look at a a launch site in the uk so it is looking like we could be back in in the rocket business we are working to get us space paul in the uk by the 2020 is that will allow us to have a small satellite launch capability as he say getting getting back in their it would be wonderful to say we're looking at sample flights will letting the market decide these things and that's really where we've come from from the 1950s times of change technologies improved we do everything in the uk based on business cases it's taxpayers money it's got to be done that way and there is now a market opening up a we're looking to capitalize on that.
