A Conversation between Tara Brach and Elizabeth Lesser
"Elizabeth. We are so delighted to have you with us. Thank you thank you thanks. It's a pleasure thank you. Hello everybody from all over the place. It's lovely to be with you. Yes i wanna jump right in to do your new book because i fall. We get grabbed by the tidal. Cassandra speaks can you just have to come up with that title. Who is cassandra. Let's just start writing with that. Well i've always loved mythology and religious texts. You know. I just love reading whether it's the bible or the koran or the buddhist texts or the hindu texts. I've just always just because humans learn through stories. that's how we learn. So i've been fascinated with stories and i didn't take me long to notice even way back in college that wow most of the books we love. Heroes tales the parables the myths they're written untold by men because back in the day. Ps also a lot now. The storytellers were men. And there's nothing wrong. With the stories. Men tell and the values men tell their stories from but a big swath of humanity was left out of the storytelling so when packing Reading reinterpreting everything. From adam and eve to chinese stories to the greek myths and as i was writing and i was writing about one of the greek town. The tale of cassandra we were in the midst of the metoo movement. Now i know that seems maybe like ancient history. Now we've all been through so much but really it was just like a year and a half ago and one night. I was watching television on. I was watching the televised trial of those young girls who had been molested by their doctor. Dr larry nassar and the judge in rare way of dealing with the trial. First of all allowed it to be televised and allowed one hundred twenty five girls to tell their story in front of the cameras with dr nassar sitting there and for years and years thirty years he'd been at it for years and years. These young women most of whom were olympic athletes had told their mothers had told their parents had told their coaches that college coaches the us olympic team coaches. They've told them that this man had been molesting them but no one believed them. And i was reading the story of cassandra. At the time. Cassandra was a princess. She was the most beautiful princess of the king of troy and troy was an ancient city. That was often at war with greece and she was so beautiful in lowering all the men wanted to marry her including the gods apollo. The son of zeus wanted to marry her. Zeus wanted to marry her and apollo offered her a gift. The gift of being clairvoyant. That she could be able to see into the future. She would see what was going to happen to her family. And her countrymen and her world and she wanted that She's very spiritual person she she wanted to be able to see into understand so she accepted the gift but he neglected to say that she would have to have sex with him right away after she got the gift but she didn't want to and he was furious so as the story goes he spat in her mouth in put a curse on her. Cassandra you will be clervoy int- but no one will believe you. And for years. She saw what was coming. She saw the war. She saw the trojan horse. She saw her brother's all dead. She saw her city in ruins and she would say it but no one would believe her. So as i was watching these young women. I thought they are cassandra's. They are telling their truth their experience but this time they're being believed and i thought that's what i want this book to be about changing the way the old story ends so it doesn't end with women not being heard women not being believed so that we had meant to who knows their inner feminine. So that finally. We respect that part of ourselves so deeply. It's really this part. That i was leading in the meditation and we get so much clout in musculature. That are stories begin to matter an actually change what it means to be human

"Everyone John Worth I'm here is this week sports illustrated tennis podcast were all catching our breath after the twenty twenty us open no one more. So than our first guest, why you ask it's dominant team, your men's winner he stopped by for what I thought was really quite an extraordinary conversation especially given the circumstances after that we speak with Dr Seon Bilac she's the president of Barnard here New York.

Straits to the hotel after all the breast. Had some dinner together and then I didn't sleep on seconds so. Was not able to reflect but I guess that's coming the next day's. Going to say I, guess you pulled an all nighter as we say, how do you celebrate a major during lockdown? This is a new one. How do you celebrate when you can't exactly I would have been happening the? Honestly. We had pizza with my team Del Room, and then we were just jailing talking about. Reviews for weeks about the tournament and I think that I, wouldn't have done differently when. Everything was normal because I was shattered dean was as well, and the is coming in the our with a big hole. They wait till you get home. What affect. Do you think it had on?

Is was really tough to all the TIME INDIANA CI yourself. push yourself all the time. It's a unique situation and over even thought for the stadium full. In the moment, are you aware of of just how crazy crazy match the Zeus of are you aware of all these wild swings? I am yeah. Usually. I. I really remember. Most of the details in in every mansions. I four said sorted were kind of strange but then if said. I never experienced something before it was so weird such a big drama you will were ending up in the daybreak. With all the years we know shallow with the fringe share the Chinese broad a super long. Two Grand Slam finals, and then we badly all if said daybreak, it's just so crazy and. I guess to lock your. Normal to pressure before big matches. Did you know how intense the pressure was before you got out there? Did you know before you hit the first ball who you were really nervous? Noam usually are most times i. I find. The perfect mix between two nervous and the northern Norway, which is this area yesterday I just didn't find it I feeling really good at the warm up by. was hitting the ball very clean, very goods. Didn't have any pain was fooling fit and then I go out and suddenly I feel. So nervous arms are heavy lakes or heavy, I cannot really blame I.

Amazing playing solid from the bank and. then. Maybe he gave me a little bit. Maybe one full or some easy mistakes on the base on broken bank in his third and. Will moment where three. When it became. A good match.
What Governs History?
"What governs? History. Well, there have been various answers to this throughout history I. Suppose someone they will nothing governs history. Everything is just opened a chance who even how today is going to and others have said will fate determines all things and we go back to Greek mythology and Roman mythology to understand fate we find this in the writings of homer and has said. The fates were the three daughters of the Goddess Knicks. She was the goddess of the night. And these three daughters, her three daughters were the fates. One of them would simply spin thread from spindle. That's all she would do just spin thread from spindle. The second sister the second fate would measure out a given piece of thread and that given piece of thread signified the length of life. And a third sister well, she would cut a thread and that signify death. And Greek her name literally means the in evitable an ancient mythology even mighty Zeus had to bow to the fates they were independent they were arbitrary. Capricious. And they governed all events of human history and all events of a single life. This idea of the fates carried on into the early Roman philosophers and they would talk about causality as he determining factor of all that happened in history and in a given life. Well, what is the Christian response to these two answers of nothing governs history or the fates govern? Well we find it very fascinating answer in Archibald Alexander. He was one of those old Prince Tony. Ian Scholars and he lectured on theology there at Princeton and one of his students was Charles Hodge and Charles. Hodge was very diligent student and he took very careful in cursive handwriting notes of Archibald. Alexander's lectures, and so we have this preserved for us today in book form and Archibald Alexander's talking about the doctrine of Providence. He sets it up by talking about fate and he explores how various Roman thinkers talked about fate talked about how cicero spoke of the order or series of causes that governed all things. He talks about Seneca. Seneca makes 'cause and fate an irrevocable necessity controlling the course of both human and divine affairs. So the supreme ruler. is even governed by fate and continually obeys the fates and the causes. Well, none of this is something that Archibald Alexander wants us to believe in or think about in fact, he says ought Christians to retain and use the word fate any answers categorically? No because this is very inconsistent with the truth. So. What does govern history? Archibald Alexander says Providence does and here's what he has to say does providence extend to all things small as well as great. That is to say does providence govern human history and does it govern the events of my life? He answers yes. Because God created all things and therefore he cares for all. Archibald Alexander goes onto reference Nehemiah chapter nine verses six, and that tax reads you even you are Lord alone you've made Heaven and the Heavens of Heavens and all their host. You've made the earth and all things that are in it in the sea and all that is in it you preserve them all and then he goes on to draw attention to. Such passages as Luke twelve seven or Matthew Ten twenty, nine Matthew Six, twenty, eight or Psalm. One, forty, seven, verse nine we put all of that Biblical material together and what do we find? Well, even the hairs of our heads are said to be numbered the fouls of the air, the lilies of the field even the insects are under the care of God. So what governs history will I we could ask who governs his tree and the answer is God us, and then we can ask what can we say his providence God's providence governs all things and moves all things to the fruition and the fulfillment of his perfect good and wise will. That's providence
Pier 1 Import Transaction - What We Can learn From It
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and Neil Patel, and today we are going to talk about something really interesting. That's happening right now while we're GonNa talk about the pure one import transaction and what we can learn from it but we. A little context here as to when recording this. This is July twenty, second twenty twenty where still in the midst of Covid, and so what's going on as a lot of these companies retailers are going bankrupt. They were already shaky, and this was basically nail in the coffin for them. So they've had to basically liquidate. Neil. I'm sure you've looked into this deal a little bit. What do you know about it? Can you kind of pay some white as to WHO's kind of spearheading this as well? Sure. So there's a guy named Alex, ooh Zeus Anti Lopez. Many guys know about the guy has a. Car. Garage union, it's at. Times really smart. So ty ended up techno was but a lot of people look at Thai Guy who's pushing Lamborghini, and there's not much more to. What ty analysis decided to do was leverage on leverage. Our audience gets a ton of investors in go out there in go leverage their audience and going by these struggling e-commerce. First one they did was dressed farm about her pennies on the dollar. Now, the buying pure one, and then from there, they turn around the company's make him grow at the fat. And you got a really solid business in part, audience built brand lowliest do the bat and off. Yeah I mean, if you think about it, it's it was initially, they agreed on a twenty one, million dollar deal in the pure one came back and said, we want thirty million. So I think it's a thirty million dollar deal now, but to Neal's point, it's pennies on the dollar, the work de Sweat equity that's been put in over the years and years. They don't necessarily need all the retail shops anywhere. You take the brand, make everything. Go Onto ECOMMERCE. You'RE GONNA go. So, you're going to print money what turns action. It's super simple. It's effective and I wish more people thought about things that way a lot of people want to build businesses from scratch. The hardest part is building easier. Part is growing muscle were marketers cutting back in grown company has already a billion dollars revenue. They're not fall role while. Is it okay by for pennies on the dollar, you cut the fat and made two billion anymore, but they slew one, hundred, million. So that really amazing business, right? I was listening to that yesterday. So Nike originally, they were slated for their online revenue to be about thirty percent for twenty, twenty three. I at the target now is fifty percent. So the already shot past that. So a lot of stuff is accelerated. Yes. We know that they're not getting a lot of offline transactions, but would this basically means if you look at shop advice stock a lot of stuff ECOMMERCE which is accelerating. Yet, and before this year roughly percent of online transact commerce transaction rebound online that. And sure after cheers Emmy going down a little bit, but it's still gonNA. Be Way higher than where started. Yeah I think at least one of the lessons from me here is you have to look at the Times what are people used to right now, and is it just a business model? tweak where you remove the retail component? The you know the in store component and you just switch it to online and boom. You're you're good to go. 'cause people are tied to the original kind of appear one management team might be tied to hey, we should keep the stores people stuck with doing things the old way by once you remove the emotion from it wants you just be used a objective and you think about it from a business perspective everything changes anything else. Let's it in the last thing you should take away from pure wants to Techn- idea something as donor to book by its cover. A lot of people a judge tyler. This guy is in smart steam

"zeus" Discussed on Mythology
"After the fall of the titans, the Olympian Pantheon held sway over the universe, becoming a dominant force in popular culture for centuries afterward, but one thing that's not often explored in stories of antiquity is how the transition between the age of the Titans and the age of the Gods actually worked once the new rulers of the universe took the titans place. It was as if the Olympia NHS had always been there and there were plenty of characters whose appearances in Greek mythology essentially end after Zeus ascends Raya mother of the Gods and met us. First wife are important figures in the tight NAM. ICKE but once the titans are deposed. Their roles in Greek mythology dwindle. Medicine particular falls victim to Zuse's ascendancy. Olympus was quiet in the night, a looming obelisk darker than the sky behind it. A mountain goats struggled up the sheer cliff. Unusually high for such an animal, the goat side if he wanted, he could leap to the top of the mountain in an instant, but doing so would cause too much of a stir sparks crackled from Zeus Horns. As he placed one huff after the other, he should have stayed until dawn. This was an awkward and uncomfortable way to return home. As the God of thunder storms stealth was not his forte. Zeus to his natural shape at the gates of Olympus when his sandals touched the Rock, a distant boom of thunder roll through the sky, he winced, but no-one stirred with a sigh of relief, he strode confidently into his bedchamber, disrobed and prepared for rest. A shadow stirred by the window. His heart sank when he realized who it was. The. Sky was quiet tonight. Did Not mean to wake you. You did not I was waiting for you. or at least to hear the sound of the storm, you were out all night brewing. Listen My love. Some storms require more than a night of preparation. I am not a fool Zeus. Do you think we blind your dalliances? It has been over ten years since I was your sole companion, my husband. I see your eye wanders. Do you think I would lavish my attentions on others when I have tightness as my queen? I would not be so selfish. Sufficient for your desires. I nearly want you to consider that your father. Do not speak his name. Your father only took one wife and had no other children besides you and your siblings. Are you implying I lacked the moral character of cronies I. I only mean to imply that you're being fool. Our marriage bed has been cold for too long. And I know it is not because you lack of stamina. Consider my desires as well as yours unless you want me. Bearing children by your siblings do not speak so rudely. A father was overthrown by six children. Are you trying to raise an army of bastards against yourself? There is no prophecy saying I will endure the same fate as my father. Not yet. Before Zeus retort met swept out of the room, disappearing into the night, Zeus did not follow rage bubbled in his belly like lava by marrying him, she had become the most powerful woman in the cosmos, while her brothers and sisters languished in Tardiness. She was free to go where she liked to do anything she wanted she should have been more grateful. The fury in his belly subsided as much as he hated to admit it. His rise was due to her cleverness her strategy. She was as much to credit for his victory as his five siblings. Zeus did not sleep that night. He sat on his bedside, thinking his wife was a titan, though they had experienced many pleasures together, she had not conceived when she did so with the child be bent against his father's will like. He had been with cronies. How could he be sure that any children? She bore him would be loyal, and not exceed him in raw power, but there was nothing to be done. She was the Titan of wisdom. She would see through any ploy on his part or any attempt to deceive her. As the soft pink of sunrise touched the Dawn. Zeus finally realized what he had to do. The one way he could keep his wife from bearing children the one way he could deceive the goddess of deceit. He would have to take an action. She didn't think him capable of. When mets returned, Zeus was waiting for her. He wore on his face expression of warmth than contrition breathable, because it was crafted from true guilt, but not guilt for his numerous affairs guilt at what he planned to do. have. You reconsidered the error of your ways? I have forgive me. I often bore of routine when I. I fell for you. Our Passion was new and dangerous. Now it is safe. It is only safe because you lack creativity. There's more than one way to make love my husband. If it is still love, you feel for me, of course it is. I cannot tell if you speak truly. Most likely because you. Yourself cannot tell the difference between love and lust. Do Not Be Sawn. Fairness, my desire for you is as strong as ever prove it. I will we have coupled together many times in our godly forms, but birds and beasts have just as much passion in the respective forms. Yes true. Then let us change shapes together. Let us explore the breadth of pleasure that exists between the creatures of the Earth. Intrigued by Zeus is strange request medicine consented Zeus began by changing his shape into that of a stag, letting his robes fall to the floor, medicine followed suit, and soon the pair of them were entwined in a tangle of limbs, horns, and hooves, as their passion grew. Their appearances change shape freely between all kinds of animals in an instant they went from a pair of stags to a pair of wolves to swans with their next wrapped tightly around each other. They dove into the. The Sea to continue their tryst as Dolphins, Wales and sharks and burst out of the waves to take the shape of writhing serpents try, as he might Zeus could.
Narcissus and Echo
"Narcissus and Echo. Once upon a time in ancient Greece there was a young man named Narcissus. From the minute he was born. It was clear to everyone that he was no normal baby. The ancient gods of Mount Olympus had gifted him with a beauty beyond measure. He was the cutest baby anyone had ever seen, and his cheeks were nearly perpetually pink from all the pinching. As, he got older. He only grew more beautiful. His hair was the gentle tumble of a hidden waterfall over golden stones. His eyes were piercing moons that sets way to the tides of your mind. His smile was pure and bright and radiant like the hot white son of a midsummer's Day flooding. You with warmth. Yes, young narcissists was blessed by the Gods with beauty. But if you're not careful, even a blessing can turn into a curse. For narcissists. It started when he was just a teen people noticed his beauty. They wanted to be married to him. They wanted to be him. They just wanted to be close to him and to make him happy. Unfortunately, all of that positive attention went right to his head. Before Long Narcissus was convinced that not only was he a beautiful handsome, strapping image of a man. He was the most beautiful the most handsome, and that he was simply the God's gift to the world. People would ask him to be friends to walk with them in the woods or play with them at their games and Narcissus would laugh in their faces. You want me to play with you. He would say I'm a work of art and your just well. You enjoy my beauty from afar. Shout your praises, but don't come to close or else I'll have to see how much uglier you all are, and it will ruin my day. This was of course, a terribly rude way to behave, but because narcissus was so incredibly beautiful, he usually managed to get away with it. This is the thing that happens sometimes, and it's not fair, but don't worry in this case. Bad behavior will not be tolerated for long. For, Narcissus, it was one long summer when he couldn't get any rest everywhere, he went. People called out to him. Narcissus Mary Me Dr. CICIS let me sculpt you nor Souza's let me just have a kiss and I can die a happy man. On and on they came, and as much as narcissus love to be admired. He hated the common people to him. It was just wildly unfair that he had to look at their average faces while they got to stare at an absolute one of a kind genuine work of art. In his mind, he decided a perfect world would be populated by him and him alone beautiful and perfect without anyone to bother him. But seeing as that was impossible, narcissus decided to take a break. One beautiful. Sun Drenched Day. He packed bag and hiked away into the forest near Mount Olympus. Out here, there was no one to bother him. There were no average faces to be annoyed by deep in the woods. Narcissus confined only be alone with his beautiful self. or so he thought in Ancient Greece even in the deep dark depths of the enchanted woods, there were creatures ready to fall in love creatures who looked familiar, but not quite human, and one of them was watching Narcissus already scrambling from branch to branch after him nimble as a squirrel, the creature was a Nymph, and her name was echo. NYMPHS are spirits of the forest, and they're always curious about human travelers. They were considered very beautiful in own right known to stop people in their tracks with just a glance acco was even more beautiful than most she had dappled skin that blushed light, pink and dark, purple like flowers, her eyes sparkled like the stars on the seas, and her hair was a wild mass of flowing green. Eco was beautiful, but she had also been cursed by the Gods in punishment for some trouble she. She had caused for Zeus and his many wives echo lost the gift of speech

Stephen Fry on Reimagining the Greek Myths
"You've written memoirs. You've written novels. What made you sit down and think what I really need to do is is rewrite Turi version of the Greek myths. It was amendment two to. Having dinner with some friends and I can't remember how this subject came up, but Someone was talking about you know. It wasn't an over pretentious dinner party discussion, but it was about the way. Different Cultures explained how the world came to be. We were saying is is Genesis a terrible myth? Is it all about guilt and shame and other better ones, and so started to talk about you know the Greek origin myths, and then went back to to the you know out of chaos, and or an Austin guy on I'm started staring at me and said go on. I said well. You know and then I. Get the next generation was talking. Know about Kronos and and then the birth of Zeus. New Game Wow. How'd you oldest I supervised? Creek myths and a lot of them were very far more diligent to nine and probably better read, but they just they knew the names. Everyone knows the names use in Paulo, and and and so on, but they hadn't joined the dots. And, it's a miraculous thing about Greek mythology that there is a timeline in chronology knits probably be reverse engineered by. He's been homer and later poets obviously, but nonetheless it has a shape a beginning in the end, which other mythic structures don't seem to have and the so deepen. To use such a Cliche, but I can't avoid in the DNA of our own culture and art that it's kind of part of who we are so. They encouraged me really and a lot of people said you got. You could retell those stories, and at first I thought I'd do a stage show, and then I started writing it and realize what pleasure it was to to research. Go back to some of the sources the time remember burn and find out and fill in the gaps in my knowledge that I started writing. Did that Mobile Library play a part in your early reading of the Greek myth says well, yes, it did and firmly enough it was American, mythologised, who were the biggest infants so me when I was young apart from Robert Graves who was hugely influential. Who wrote a magnificent two volume edition of agreements, but when I was younger and too young, for Robert Graves, it was Hamilton and Bernadette, Flynn and bull finch copy of Dolphins, which is American I think. Isn't it the both with? And Anthony Hoffman whom I remember well reading those when I was very young, had big illustrated version of Nathaniel. Hawthorne's Tanglewood Tales and these were all wonderful retailing children, and there was a pretty sure Roger Lance Lynn Green. Bread was a boy and at school, because I loved classics at school from a very early age, we were taught latching from age of seven of. School and and I did. It only because I think it did so badly it everything else. That I was put onto ancient Greek quite young, too. I was eight or nine when I started engine. Great which I love. And so the stories, of course, the things you use for translations and So I grew up with a with a lot of them.
"zeus" Discussed on Mythical Monsters
"The creature was typhon. The dragons on his arms hissed and spit a fiery venom. The snake scales glinted illuminated by the burning fire in his eyes. The Earth shook as he stepped forward. The Olympia backed away in fright. They were powerful beings but in the face of pure evil they felt very small. All of them that is except for Zeus recovered from his initial shock. Zoo strode forward. A lightning bolt clutched in his hand. He addressed the towering demon in a confident voice. I do not know who you are but I am. Zeus King of the Gods and you will return to the hellish layer. You crawled out of typhon roared with laughter as he said but it is hell itself. I came from without warning. A torrent of hot flames viewed from typhoons is all the Olympians but Zeus scattered. They took to the skies as birds or burrowed into the ground as rodents or scampered off through the gardens as wildcats. Typhon watched them go. He longed to rip them limb from limb to taste their celestial blood on his tong but as he faced Zeus. His mother's need for revenge echoed in his ears. Power surged through him and he grew even taller. His head almost touched the stars zoo sent a bolt of lightning into typhoons chest but he absorbed the blow easily. Zeus bellowed anger and grew in size to match typhoons height. His hands stretched out wide ready to gather the elements to his fingertips but typhon speed was as great as his size. Snakes shot out of his thighs to sink their teeth into the back of Zeus is legs. The king of the Gods roared in agony as the snakes retracted pulling with them. The tendons of his muscles Zeus Shrunk in stature and crumpled to the ground more snakes shot out and bid into his hands their fangs ripped the tendons from his hands as well then slithered back to Nestle in the mammoth legs of their master. If typhon could smile he would have for the masterful. God that had destroyed his half siblings. The titans was now nothing. But a pitiful trembling weakling and he typhon now had free reign he would kill Zeus and then he would watch the world burn. Suddenly Hermes swooped from the sky to grab Zeus by the hair. Typhoon roared and unleashed a ball of fire at the Messenger. God but Hermes dodged and rose higher until he and Zeus were beyond the monsters. Reach typhoons is burned with fury at watched his victim disappear then. He looked down at Zeus tendons shimmering in his hand if Zeus wanted his tendons back he would have to enter his domain to retrieve them. The beasts within typhoons hair growled their thirst for blood had not yet been quenched. Typhon felt rage boiling up within him. He too had a need. That had not yet been satisfied. The Need to destroy on his way back to the underworld typhon satisfied his urges by wreaking havoc. His eyes burned landscapes. His dragon arms bat deadly venom onto the backs of animals and is massive feet flattened pitiful humans as they ran he had been built for revenge. His entire body trembled with his need to rip the world apart. Geo waited for her son in the vast hall of the underworld. She hoped he would bring news. That Zeus was destroyed. It would mean typhon was now the ruler of the cosmos. The thought gave her pause. The titans had been effective brutal but wise and she was uncertain that typhon cared for anything. More than chaos. She shook the thought off. She would simply have to give him more guidance but as she waited she felt a pain. In her head a chill ran down her spine. Something was not right with the earth. Her earth she closed her eyes and was able to see the world in its villages. Crumbling scorched land and sky so black that one could not see the stars. Jia was horrified..

"Scientists have coined an appropriate term for the large chilly bodies like Uranus ice giants. Neptune falls into the same category. But you're in. This is quite an odd duck compared to its neighboring planet. For starters you're a spins on an extreme tilt resulting in some truly wild seasons around the polls even the ice giants name is a bit peculiar and not just because it makes school kids chuckle.

Which is the imaginary line connecting their northern and southern polls and they simultaneously orbit on an imaginary plane around the Sun now Earth has an axial tilt of twenty three point five degrees. This means there's a twenty three point five degree angle between Earth's axis and its plane of orbit around the Sun without the tilt our home world wouldn't have seasons or possibly life. Uranus is skewed to but to a much greater extent in relation to its orbital plane. The ice giants access has been tilted at a chopping ninety seven point seven degree angle next to Saturn and Neptune. Urine looks like it's lying on its side so what we are orientation. A computer simulation published two thousand eighteen suggests your was hit by a huge Proto Planet. Around four billion years ago then again there may have been multiple impacts or a long gone circum. Planetary Disk could have played a role however it happened. The tilt subjects both polls too long dark winters long. Bright Summer's on Uranus was orbit around the Sun or one year lasts for roughly eighty four earth years. Each poll is aimed almost directly at the Sun for about twenty one St Earth years during its summer season. Meanwhile the other pole faces the opposite direction. Enduring Alliance Dark Winter. Despite the extreme tilt urine is warmer at the equator than it is either poll. Nobody knows why. And this isn't the planets only mystery. Jupiter Saturn and Neptune already radiate more than twice as much heat as they received from the Sun. Yet you're innocence. Heat output is significantly lower. This disparity has long baffled planetary scientists as we already mentioned. You're innocent. Neptune are both ice giants planets of this sort have rocky cores covered by mantles rich. An icy half frozen slush of ammonia methane and water next up there's the atmosphere whose outer level is full of hydrogen helium and even more methane researchers found that urinalysis atmospheric clouds contain hydrogen sulfide. A compound responsible for the rotten egg stench. We all know in hate so yes. You're in literally stinks to the densest part of its atmospheric sees brutal temperatures of negative two hundred forty three to negative three hundred seventy degrees Fahrenheit. That's negative one fifty three to negative to eighteen degrees Celsius. That's hardly a welcoming environment for any future astronauts but at least the color scheme would be familiar. Earth isn't the only blue planet in the solar system. Methane absorbs red light giving Uranus and Neptune deep blue complexions of the two worlds. You're in a slightly greener since nineteen seventy seven. We've known that Ernest has a ring system around its equator to date. Astronomers have counted thirteen rings encircling the planet the structures are relatively dim and lack the fine particles observed and other rings systems like Saturn's each one is composed of debris chunks that are golf ball sized at minimum for some reason smaller material gets exiled and space between these rings in also has twenty seven known moons twenty five of which renamed after Shakespeare characters like affiliate Juliet. There's Dimona puck and Miranda who's namesake appears in the tempest geologically complex. Miranda contains the single policy cliff known to humankind dubbed Verona repays. It has an estimated height of twelve point four miles. That's twenty kilometers. Meaning that if you happened to be walking along its peak and you happened to fall off. You would plummet for twelve minutes straight before hitting the ground. Others satellites of note include sicker acts and Caliban while most of your Ennis's moons spin in the same direction as the planet does these to revolve the other way. Scientists think they were once independent objects that the ice giants gravity in snared by the way how ban is another tempest character and sicker. Iraq's was said to be his mother from it's weird rings. It's puzzling climate. You're Ennis's found plenty of ways surprises. Only time will tell what further mysteries the planet holds until then although it's very dim your is visible to the naked eye on some dark clear nights if you have sharp vision if not so much. It's easily visible with noculars or a telescope.
Herodotus - the Animals of Ancient Egypt
"Ancient times. Crocodiles were common in Egypt. These days Egypt does not have many crocodiles as they can't swim. Pass the great concrete. As when damn that now blocks the River Nile but here auditors sore these fierce reptiles snoozing with their mouths open on the banks of the Nile and he noted that small birds sometimes hopped inside the crocs mouths and picked up bits of food from between their teeth. This type of bird is called the Egyptian plover and it still cleans crocodile's teeth for them. Herodotus describes how the crocodiles grows into an enormous animal after hatching out of a tiny egg he says it has is like a pigs and it's huge teeth. Stick out of its mouth. Well he gets some of his fax. Almost not quite correct for instance. He says the crocodile does not eat anything during four months of winter. Actually it does eat but not very much during that time. He also says that the crocodile does not have a tongue in fact it does have one but it's rather small he tells us that some Egyptians held crocodiles to be sacred which means they worshiped him. Like gods those who celebrated crocodiles brought them up at home presumably in something like a bathtub. They decorated their pet crocs with earrings and bracelets for their feet other Egyptians in my view the more sensible ones saw crocodiles as dangerous enemies and even ate them when they got the chance. They used pigs as bait to hunt crocodiles. Some Egyptians also thought that hippopotamuses were sacred. Her auditors probably did not see these creatures for himself. He claimed that hippos had Maine's entails like horses and nayed like them to. He also thought that their hooves were cloven. Split like a bulls. It's not hard to see where he got. These mistaken ideas from the word hippopotamus comes from two Greek words meaning horse and posthumous meaning river so hippopotamus means river horse. He also told us that authors lived in the Nile in those days and in fact ancient Egyptians made statues of waters standing up as if they were praying. Then he tells us that there's a sacred bird which is not seen with his own eyes but only in paintings the feathers of this remarkable bird where red and speckled with gold it was shaped something like an eagle. This was called the Phoenix. The Phoenix lived most of the time in Arabia and was a very rare visitor to Egypt once about every five hundred years when his father died the Phoenix made an egg out of myrrh which is a perfumed gum or resin from the trunk of a tree. He hollowed out the egg and put his father inside it before carrying him to the Temple of the sun in Halio Palace in Egypt where it buried him. Even Herodotus can't bring himself actually to believe this Tall Tale in truth the Phoenix is a mythical bird that does not exist at all. He also tells us about a harmless Egyptian snake with two horns on its head please. Snakes were sacred to the Egyptians when they died they were buried in the temple of Zeus. Whose name was a raw or Eytam the Sun God. He also tells us about tiny snakes which flew every spring from Arabia to Egypt. He has surely thinking about locusts which alike grasshoppers they're described in the Bible as coming to play the Egyptians according to Herodotus a sacred type of bird called the abyss defends Egypt from flying snakes it describes that abyss as having the legs of a crane and along hooked beak Japan's particularly revered the abyss because it fought off the flying snakes. Well those are some of the wild animals and birds that option is considered to be sacred but the most sacred animal of all for ancient. Egyptians was the cow or bull. And next time I will be telling you how the ancient Egyptians worshiped

Trump Changes Make It Difficult For Migrants To Gain Asylum
"It to me more than fifty five thousand migrants have been forced to wait in Mexico for their day in US immigration court under the trump administration program known as remain in Mexico it's one of several key changes that have made it extremely difficult to win asylum here just a tiny fraction of migrants in the program less than one percent have gotten protection and sometimes even those who do win are sent back immigrant advocates of identified at least seventeen cases I asked mark Morgan the acting commissioner of U. S. customs and border protection why I don't think that should be happening I described case uses situation to Morgan he said any migrant who wins their case should be allowed into the US that that's happen the way you described that then then that's that's an anomaly it's a mistake but we'll we'll take a look at that that was at a press conference last month last week customs and border protection cut back to us and said the agency can return migrants to Mexico while officials consider whether to appeal but immigration lawyers disagree and in this case officials gave his his paperwork saying a judge had ordered him to appear in court which wasn't true the paperwork also listed a hearing date in November but that date didn't appear on any court docket because it wasn't real they put a fake date on a piece of paper that says you have an upcoming hearing and there was no hearing Kenji because you cut is a lawyer with a nonprofit human rights first he took on hace uses case after you've already won in immigration court the fact that the commissioner doesn't even know who's being sent to Mexico under the program is really troubling it's that kind of lack of care and attention that is putting people's lives at risk customs and border protection denies using fake court dates the trump administration says it is trying to limit asylum by discouraging what it considers fraudulent claims because UK says the administration is turning away legitimate cases to the trump administration is trying to basically fry in refugees away from the United States to make it so scary and dangerous for them to come to the border and ask for help that they just give up and go away we're never come to begin with for he Seuss it was too dangerous to stay in Venezuela a country that's been rocked by political upheaval Hey suse was a police officer his superiors ordered him to arrest members of a political opposition party on bogus charges he refused and president but circle shown a semi Yasumi familiar they started to preserve me and my family they killed my father and my mother was followed she was threatened with its still and beatings don't know you will be a hay Seuss says he was jailed and beaten and that his father died after being refused treatment for a heart condition at a local government hospital this is when he and his mother decided to leave yeah but only by already I already lost my father and didn't want to lose my mother so I sold all my belongings in Venezuela political somewhat they're gonna continue Minnesota that was the beginning of a five month saga for hay Seuss and his mother they try to put their names on a waiting list to request asylum at a port of entry in Texas but they say they were told repeatedly by the keepers of that list in Mexico that it was full so they crossed illegally and turn themselves over to the border patrol he sees his mother was detained in Louisiana but Hey Zeus was sent back to Mexico and released wanting Pinto Sally it as I was about to leave the Mexican immigration office one of the officials told me with the way that you look cool you won't go fifty steps without being kidnapped and went up us work on this project with throw hay Seuss was dropped off in wave a Laredo Mexico or migrants are frequently targeted by cartels he says he did witness kidnapping and violence and even narrowly avoided being kidnapped himself he sues managed to escape from a group of thugs at the bus station he was on his way to meet his lawyer Kenji because you cut in person for the first time together they tried once again to get hay Seuss into the U.

Pit bull puppy dies after protecting kids from venomous snake

How does a pet get cloned?
"Cloning how does that get cloned so the very first step if you are thinking you might potentially you want to call on your pet Sunday that first step is our genetic preservation service and what that involves is a veterinarian taking a few small skin biopsy samples from your pets and if you're planning in advance and it is best to have these biopsies done while the cat is still alive and healthy so if you're planning in advance it's best to order I biopsy kit and we can ship this biopsy can overnight to the veterinarian or to the client and this biopsy kit has everything that the veterinarian needs to take the samples and to ship them to us at the appropriate temperature so it's just a small four millimeter punch biopsy at the skin so very simple every veterinarian the world is that a punch biopsy before so very easy to do it can be done with the local anesthesia or it can be done under general anesthesia if you are planning in advance in the veterinary purse first to do a general anesthesia then you might consider having this done in conjunction with a dental cleaning something like that where the the dog is already under anesthesia so we have a lot of clients that she used to do it at that time so the the vet takes a biopsy samples very small and very minimally invasive or the pet and would like to have anywhere from to try by an overnight with the return and ex label that included in from these tissues are they going to sell culture and we will grow millions of cells that contain that had DNA and the cells will ultimately be the starting point where the cloning process that is absolutely amazing it really sounds like Jurassic Park so hope is it possible to do Jurassic Park dinosaurs are we just doing cats and dogs I should ask what species can be cloned so there are quite a few species clones Bijan pets was originally part of the company that cloned livestock so cattle pigs goats and sheep have been cloned over the past seventeen years and when we began and by Jim Henson equine we now just clone dogs cats and horses so those are the three species that we clone and weeping cloning courses for about seventeen years and dogs and cats for about almost four years and it's it's going very well the cloning is just growing and growing the more people find out about this and then it's a possibility it's really a growing field with cloning I think a lot of people have concerns and I had a lot of questions because it's not as a topic that was really broached when I was in veterinary school so with cloning I know that Dolly the sheep seem to be healthy land a shorter lifespan than a typical sheep of that particular breed what happens for a dog and a cat is there or horse is there a lifespan basically the same physical issues they have can a brief for instance yes all very good questions so in going back to Dolly the sheep the technique that we use for cloning is essentially very much the same as what was used for Dolly many years ago and it is technically called somatic cell nuclear transfer or S. T. and T. so a somatic cell is any cell in the body that's anything other than a sperm or an egg and for dogs and cats and horses the somatic cells all these are what we grow in the culture from the skin biopsies taken from the pet so that somatic cell is that source at the beginning so that process is essentially the same and how the embryo is made and all of the species is how we use that egg from a donor animal and we removed the nucleus of that egg and we transfer in one of the somatic cells from the skin sample and these agonist cell are now fused together in an embryo starts to grow and then we'll transfer that embryo into the surrogate animal for dogs and cats they're a little bit different than the worst because dogs and cats are litter bearing species so we do transfer multiple embryos into that surrogate mom so is there is that chance that there could be twins or triplets said usually small number of puppies or kittens in the later but that is a chance and usually the clients will take as many as are born in the letter and it's just the one let me go back to your question about the longevity of these animals so Dolly did live a shorter lifespan than normal and so there was speculation at the time twenty two years ago that this was because she was a clone animal there's been a lot of research done on cloned animals and stating their longevity and their health over the years and cloned animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan which is really refreshing for a lot of these pet owners because unfortunately Dolly kind of got a bad rap and because she did let us our lives so it is you know it's the sort of the myths surrounding cloning that cloned animals live a shorter lifespan than an average animal and that's simply not true so cloning animals have been shown to live a normal lifespan and should be just as healthy as the original animal now one question that we do get quite often is let's say you know the the original all dog developed cancer will the cloned dog develop cancer great yes that's comes right on it and the answer is it depends on the cause of that cancer so which we don't veterinarians don't usually no it's not really definitive what the causes of most cancers are but if it was something that was shown to be genetically linked type of disease or illness the net cloned animal is going to have those same genes so that same potential to develop that disease at some point in its life it's not automatically going to develop that disease but that potential is there so sometimes the client can know to watch out for symptoms they may see them earlier and your because they're looking a little more closely for them where there may be some diagnostics that can be done on the Pat to to make sure that this does not developing that disease that the original Pat may have had that should have just the same longevity and health status as the original animal so genetic counseling especially the situation like that because you say are and I have a golden retriever and this golden retriever died of a type of cancer and then she'll star coma but this is just the best dog in the entire world so I want another one just like Goldie and then there is that chance because of the genetic predisposition that the next at could have cancer also said that yes I think it's very important so Mylene you were talking about this genetic preservation that can go on and you'll sometimes have a cloned animal in Sir get that you may have three or four are they obligated to take all the pattern that later and if not what do you do with the other pets and I'm sure people are thinking how many cats and dogs and horses do they have to act to circuits so our litter sizes are usually small just one or two maybe three and puppies or kittens and the letter we did have some larger sizes we had up to five puppies in a litter and this is sort of earlier on in the cloning process when we were at yeah and it's fine tuning in the number of embryos that go into the store get to get the number of puppies or kittens that we're hoping for and most clients will only want just one or maybe two so yeah I can understand work five is a lot to handle so he we do sort of try to treat that but you never know it's kind of like IVF you may end up with twins or triplets and it's just a little bit of a risk that may be there I would say most clients if there are three parties let's say most clients are going to say yes I want every single copy that morning that's completely understandable I know I would end up actually I have my dogs those prisoners I've already talked to my family and that's it okay on my dog Zeus and there's three puppies I'm gonna take one and again my brother you'll take one right and my mother worked I'm gonna give you that so it within my family so I can keep an eye on them and I and that's what most clients will choose to do is is a date they may not keep every single one of them somewhere else but if there's more than they can really take care of it solely on three copies as a lot then they may Debbie does that now I have the claim is not obligated to you take every every cut your kitten that's born with the cloning agreement and they are guaranteed at least one healthy puppy or kitten they're not obligated to take any extra ones there's of course no additional fees for those extra puppies or kittens so in we've had a couple clients that have have said you know I can only take two can you find a good home for these other you know we do have the other ones and we've done that we haven't really get adoption program in the cases that we've done that before those copies of actually been adopted out to you our own employees so it makes it really nice because the the clients can keep tabs on those and they know that the copies went to again how so you have the genetic preservation I want to have the biopsies done small really not painful I agree with you doing little four millimeter biopsies with local anesthesia is so simple you can plan have that preserved how long can you preserve it so if somebody says you know this is really good dog I'm not really sure if I want to do this what's going to be going on later on my life how long can that genetic material be stored and how is it stored I mean I would say most of our clients are are wanting to just preserve the cells are now and it cost is quite a lot where the cloning itself so those clients are just holding on to that DNA we preserve the cells the cells and the cell culture that we do it takes about two to four weeks to complete the culture and then these cells are placed in a crowd files with a crow protected media and they're stored in liquid nitrogen tanks in the cells can be kept stored essentially for ever for decades and we have clients that have stored cells S. for seventeen years and we've actually called a couple of dogs in at least one cat who sells were stored for seventeen years and then they they contest that later on so it's really amazing so essentially forever the cells can be stored there is an annual storage fee for storing cells so they the initial cost of the genetic preservation in sixteen hundred dollars and that includes culturing the cells in the biopsy kit shipment to and from the veterinarian and that also includes the first year of self storage after the first year the annual storage fee is a hundred and fifty dollars per year in the great thing about this is all of the up front fees that the client pays for the preservation and any subsequent storage fees these all get combine an addict gather and then when they decide to clone down the road everything that they've paid to date gets applied toward the cloning so long term clients really like that so I think this is a fascinating way that you're doing this Mullane where you are saving the cells your happiness fee but then you're not being hit with additional fees you know way on top of that because you're paying for a little bit little all the way along that's great now again you are saving the cells it's not embryos because oftentimes we hear about in human medicine where they're saving this genetic material but you're actually saving embryos is that correct that's right for the genetic preservation work we haven't created the embryos just yet they're actually for pets there is not been a technique developed to be able to freeze embryos we can do that and horses so because we've been cloning horses for so long we have improved the technique and initially there was when we first started doing this there was no process available to successfully resent all embryos for horses but now we've developed these techniques we have some of the top cloning scientist in the world on staff your just amazing and so for horses that is our standard thing that we do with the cloning is we we create the cloned embryos and then they are frozen and then they can be shipped and in transferred into their reset mayor at that point but for dog and cat it has to be a fresh embryo so we don't create embryos just yet we just up from genetic preservation we're just simply producing the
What Is Agnosticism?
"Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bomb here. It's called the rise of the nuns, the rapid increase in the number of Americans who claim to have no religious beliefs that has taken place in the last decade, or so when pews religious landscape study came out in two thousand fifteen it showed that the percentage of atheists in America had doubled from one point six two thousand seven to three point one in two thousand fourteen. Meanwhile, the percentage of agnostics had just about doubled from two point four to four point. Oh, but these terms agnostic an atheist are often confused. Let's unpack them people choose to identify as religiously agnostic for a variety of personal reasons philosophical, psychological, theological or even political, but it's not that agnostics are spiritual fence sitters unwilling to state whether they believe in God or don't true it necessarily. It turns out has nothing to do with belief at all. The term agnostic system was first coined by English biologist Thomas, Henry Huxley who lived in the mid to late eighteen hundreds. He was a fierce defender of Charles Darwin against religious critics who accused him of denying God's role in creation as a scientist Huxley didn't concern himself with beliefs he sought after facts, and the fact of any proposition, for example, that God created the vast diversity of nature or that evolved from natural selection. Could only be proven by the evidence Huxley stated that narcissism itself wasn't a creed or set of beliefs, but a principle namely, quote that it is wrong for man to say he is certain of the objective truth of a proposition unless he can produce evidence which logically justifies that certainty. The word itself was a combination of the prefix a meaning against or opposite and NAS Decem which comes from a Greek word meaning knowledge necessary. I'm was a religious movement that flourished in the first and second centuries, CE and held that among other things the spirit world was good and the material world was evil. And although the principle of agnostic system doesn't exclusively apply to the question of God's existence. You can be agnostic about any proposition. It's been wrapped up in religion. Since the beginning Huxley wrote, a friend in eighteen sixty I neither affirm nor deny that immortality of men. I see no reason for believing it. But on the other hand, I have no means of disproving it gives me such evidence. As would justify me in believing anything else, and I will believe that. So that's awesome. But what about atheism, atheism? According to its classical definition is the lack of belief in God or that God is the biblical Judeo Christian God or some other higher power is separate issue. The opposite of atheism is theism the belief that God exists, atheism. And theism are thus both metaphysical claims because they assert an answer to a question about the nature of reality. Agnostic system on the other hand doesn't take a position on whether God exists. Instead, it takes a position on whether or not we can know if God exists. This is thus a physical or pissed him logical question this democracy being these study of knowledge at NAS to some claims that we cannot know if God does or does not exist because there's no compelling evidence that either proposition is true. At least not yet. You might think that agnostics as them is nothing more than a handy way to dodge the question of whether you believe in God instead of saying, yes, or no the agnostic chooses a third position neither. But this is where things can get Harry. We spoke with Paul Draper, a professor at Purdue University who specializes in the philosophy of religion. He's witnessed his fair share of arguments between atheists agnostics he said people get so angry about this. The eighth will say you call yourself at agnostic, but you're really an atheist and you can see the eighth yeasts point at face value. It seems there's a razor thin line between saying. I don't see any evidence that got exists. And I don't believe the God exists. But the difference is that you can be an agnostic and atheist just as you can be an agnostic to believe in Christian or Buddhist or Muslim that's because agnostic schism at its core is separate and unrelated to questions of faith. Let's explain agnostics are nearly always lumped together with atheists as a type of non believer the Pew Research Center defined religious nuns as being either atheists agnostics or not affiliated with any particular religion. But it must isn't itself. A belief system. One could believe on face the God exists, but still ascribed the agnostic position that God's existence cannot be proven by physical evidence or rational arguments such a person would be an agnostic theorist. There's even a school of theology called apathetic theology. The claims that God is inherently unknowable. Thomas Aquinas, the thirteenth century philosopher and the Logan wrote. Now, we cannot know what God is. But only what God is not we must therefore consider the ways in which God does not exist rather than the ways in which God does according to seventy two percent of religious nuns. The group that does include easiest and agnostics do believe in a higher power. However, while it's technically true that you can be both an agnostic and faithful believer, it's perhaps more common for agnostics to doubt the existence of God is such Bertrand. Russell the British floss for it mathematician wrote a treatise on Augusta schism in which he explained why the agnostic and atheist positions often overlap. He said the agnostic suspends judgment saying that there are not sufficient grounds either for African nation or for denial at the same time at agnostic may hold the existence of God, though, not impossible is very improbable. He may even hold it. So improbable that it's not worth considering in practice in that case he is not far removed from atheism. His attitude. Maybe that would careful philosopher would have towards the gods of agent, Greece. If I were asked to prove that Zeus Poseidon inherit and the rest of the Olympics, do not exist. I should be at a loss to find conclusive arguments. An agnostic may think the Christian God as improbable as the Olympia ins in that case, he is for practical purposes at one with atheists. As we said at the beginning. The reasons for identifying as agnostic are myriad and different for every person Draper who has participated in high profile debates with Christian philosophers calls himself, a local eighth easiest and global agnostic. He explained I'm an atheist about the all powerful all knowing all good God, I'm agnostic about God. In a broader sense. Is there some being the qualifies for the title? God. There could be such a
Here's one great way to get involved in science name, one of Jupiter's moons.
"Here's one great way to get involved in science name, one of Jupiter's moons. That's the thing you can actually do. Thanks to a contest being held right now by the Carnegie institution for science seriously. Remember last July when astronomers Scott Sheppard announced he discovered twelve new moons of Jupiter. Well, the naming process. For five of those moons is officially open to the public technically, the international astronaut Michael union gets the final say on the official name of any new celestial body that gets discovered, but the discoverer gets to suggest a permanent name and the union does give priority to those suggestions it's fair game to ask people to give you ideas, which is why Pluto got its name from an eleven year old girl. You can find our episode with that story on curiosity. Daily dot com, by the way, but there are still a lot of rules. You have to follow when you name a moon, you'll have to brush up on your Greek and Roman with all Aji for one thing since Jupiter is the king of the Roman gods and the analog to the Greek God Zeus, the moons have to be named after descendants or lovers of Jupiter or Zeus also the names of the moons that spin in the opposite direction as Jupiter have to end in an e and the names of the moons. It's been in the same direction as Jupiter have to end in a the name has to be sixteen characters or fewer, preferably one word. It can't be offensive in any language. It can't be too similar to. Any existing names of moons or asteroids, and it can't be the name of a person place or event that's mainly known for political military or religious activities got all that. All right. Once you have a name, you can tweet it to at Jupiter lunacy with a hashtag name, Jupiter's moons. And explain why you chose the name. They'll also accept suggestions in video format you have until April fifteenth to get your suggestions in good
Sweden's Cashless Experiment: Is It Too Much Too Fast?
"Support for this NPR podcast and the following message. Come from the UPS store, offering services from shredding to printing to mailbox ING and instead of closing this holiday. The UPS store is doing another ING altogether. Opening the UPS store every ING for small business. And of course, shipping cash maybe king, but there are more ways to buy and sell and store our money than ever before. We're looking at what's beyond cash in this month's all tech considered. For a glimpse of what the US economy might look like in the future we head to Scandinavia. No country is dropping cash as fast as Sweden. Just thirteen percent of people there reported using cash to buy something last year. But as Mattie savage reports from Stockholm some Swedes or concern that things have changed too quickly next to the cinnamon buns and open sandwiches at this restaurant has launched new sign with the English word cash. Cross doubt notes and coins stopped being accepted here a year ago off staff noticed most people will be using them. Superiour bites. Eight five percent something like that. And the restaurant was using cash. That's general manager Christopher Lert who's been keeping an eye on.
