Whats the science behind bullying?

"Okay guys. I want to talk about bully. For. Me Back when I was in grade two, I was bullied. This one person made most of the air just miserable one day he just decided to torment me. Oh i. think he wanted to drive a wedge between me and a friend. The worst part was we used to be really good friends. We were like really really close and then he just. became. Randomly. evil. So. One day we were friends, and then the next day he just. Flip and he just came a jerk so. What's up with that? Like what do people just become bullies? And, it's not just me boiling is everywhere I looked into some of the statistics and it's not looking good for US guys. At least one in three students in Canada have reported being bullied recently and the rate of discrimination experienced by students who identifies lgbtq plus is three times higher than heterosexual students and girls are more likely to be bullied on the Internet them boys. So, put that guys. and. The worst part is that this stuff doesn't end as you grow up. Forty percent of Canadian workers experienced bullying on a weekly basis. But why like? Why are these numbers so hot? Is there some sort of evolutionary societal biological purpose to it? Is it something in our brains something that we've been born with. What is the scientific reason for bullying? I'm Kai. This is my podcast I asked why there are just so many good questions other than you. Really WanNA. Get Answer. What is deja-vu? How'd you songs get stuck in your head? Water animals. Sing. The dinosaurs died how did other animal survive? Why Space Dark? And what is the science of bullying? So I'm assuming all of you've been bullied at least once in your life. Yes sir. These are my friends. Piper Fin Cayden and Zoe were all kids here and we all have dealt with it at some point in our lives. For. Me Oftentimes, I feel like my friends needed knee for their entertainment. It would be weird because if they would be like teasing me or something and I would be like Oh. But these are my friends. These are Nice people why are they? Bullying me. For me. It's sort of something that I'm like currently experiencing is just someone at my school in my class who like they'll just jokingly show me and I think they take it too far. Sometimes, they just don't really know when to stop I. Just think like for me there is just like the little things that kind of like build up like there's this one person who Kana criticizes me like about. Maybe my grades or something like that and say that I'm not doing well, just like making up stuff which I think is very nice. Young guys. It's not a good feeling at all. It sucks you know and really bad blink can actually affect your life for a really longtime i. took a listen through some recent CBC stores on bullying and made me really really sad to hear from grownups who are still haunted by these heroin blink experiences that they had when they were young. I was a small kid. And being a small kid I was. Bullied a lot I was an easy target. I. Constantly get pushed around punched kicked bookstore on the hallway floor. I changed schools a couple of times about bullying followed me and I dropped out screwy sixty years old. But three of them after school would pin me down on the ground and push me down and hit me and kick me. I really became a shell of who I probably could have been. I was quite an emotional rack. I think it's something you just never really recover from. So I, think you know in a way we're playing with fire when we think that this is just something that everybody goes through or many people go through and there are consequences. If bullying is so painful and so hurtful for so many people why would anybody ever do it ever? Found? Someone why Could help me get to the bottom of this. Alot. This is Tony Vote. In the Department of Child, new studies at Brock University. He's a developmental psychologist. He spent a lot of time studying bullying his approach is multidisciplinary. So he thinks about it from an evolutionary biological and historical perspective. Even as his own laboratory studies it. So I am here to figure out what he's learned. So. What got you interested in bullying I was fully PRETTY UNORIGINAL I know. It's it's good motivation. Alone. Bullying is probably ubiquitous amongst life itself. I mean, you need that the pecking order and checking. The dominance hierarchy in wolves. Chimpanzees. Could also probably by many definitions seat amongst trees that compete with each other. Hold up hold up. So even trees are blowing. Each other is nothing sacred people. Some Bushes will inject toxins into more developing species beside them. So the strategy of being. To weaker individuals is for better for worse part of evolutionary strategy in general.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music

"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.

What are the origins of English

"Think if it is a bunch of. It is probably a bunch of women, MOMS and aunts on the island of England. That's probably the people who invented the English language and they were called angles. So they didn't even call English. They called it anguish. My Name's Tom Howell and I used to write the Oxford Dictionary encounter and I wrote a book called the Rude Story of English and it is a history of some dudes and some woman thousand five hundred years ago trying to invent the language. So in a sense when you learned English. From the older people in your family. They are inventing English in a way because that is going to be a bit different. From the English that their grandparents spoke and then their great grandparents spoke and so on and so on and so on. Until when you go back far enough, it would be very difficult for us now to understand like great. Great. Great. Great. Great. Great great grandparents, saints which other think of how friend and neighbor are spell differently neighbors eat before I, friend is I before e friend came from one place where they said free owned once upon a time and neighbor came from another place where they were saying. It was actually called a near Ghabbour. You know has GM neighbor Mrs Weird thing we don't pronounce it now. It's just people stop pronouncing it properly but. Once upon a time, they would've been like, no, it's wrong to say neighbor without Jeanette they would have been like the correct way to say that is Nia Gabor because it was a boor who lived near you. So generations go by people make mistakes people say things a bit differently. People put on funny voices. Things Change. Now we say neighbor instead of new? Kabar I guess it is. The English is so complicated because it comes from all around the world. Yeah. What recalled English today like if you look up a word on the Internet to find out where it came from could come from anywhere. Like bungalow comes from India but you know even if you went back all the way to what the angles were saying, their language also came from all around the world like their language came from. Iraq and India and Russia and all kinds of weird places like people have been talking to each other for at least one, hundred, thousand years. So all of us, any point in history might say who invented our language and the odds would almost be some not dudes some arts and mother's thousand, five, hundred years ago. kind of doesn't matter where you are. That's always kind of be the answer.

Mozart's Operas

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi. Lewin. Both Con Amadeus Mozart wrote more beautiful music in his not quite thirty five year lifetime than a lot of composers who lived a lot longer one kind of music that fascinated Mozart from the time he was a kid was opera. Mozart I. said he wanted to write an opera when he was eight and when he was twelve, he did up through the very last year of his life. He continued composing operas. An opera is a stage work with costumes and sets that also includes music singing as an important part of the drama instead of speaking their lines, the characters sing them. Italy. Was the country where opera got its start. So Italian was the fashionable language for writing operas even in German speaking Austria where Mozart lived. But Go to kind of opera that's related to our Broadway musical. It's called the Zing Spiel a play with singing Austrians who didn't speak Italian could understand because it was in German just like in American musical theater, there are spoken lines that move the plot along but when the characters want to let you know what they're feeling, they sing about it or August. I have two favorite Mozart operas one in each language not city Figo Godot is Italian for the marriage of Figaro. This opera is based on a very famous, very revolutionary play about a servant Figaro who outsmarts his royal master. Since, there was still plenty of royalty around when the play was written. It was pretty daring. Some kings wouldn't allow it to be performed. At the beginning of the Opera Figaro is busy measuring his new bedroom, you can hear him counting five, ten, twenty in. Italian of course. Susannah the woman Figaro's going to marry tries to interrupt. She wants him to look at her bridal veil. You can hear in Mozart's music how hard it is forces Emma to get Figaro's attention. Figaro has some Great Arias or Solos in the opera when one of the characters is sent to the army and doesn't want to go figaro things about what it will be like ticked rate in his pants, he closed for a uniform and then marched to the mud. Nine. and. My other Mozart favorite is the magic flute heat Salva Fluid a Germans ing. SPIEL. In the magic flute, the Queen of the night represents evil dark forces and Rostro represents light and truth. It's brilliant how Mozart shows the contrast between them by having the Queen of the night fast loud and very high. While rostro music is slow deliberate and very. The. Most, fun character in the magic flute is Papa Gay No. The Bird Catcher I even named a cat after him. Papa John is always looking for a wife when he finds one, her name turns out to be Papa Gain A-, and they sing a wonderful using their names to investigate the birds he catches. Wish, I had time to play you more music from Mozart operas next week a kind of music so. In Mozart's bay that classical composers latched onto it to

Why Do Dogs Have Tails?

"This is but why a podcast for curious kids from Vermont public radio I'm Jane Lindholm On this podcast, you ask the questions and it's our job to find interesting people to answer them. In this episode, we're talking all about dogs. Now, if you WANNA learn about cats check out our companion episode that episode includes some amazing facts about how cats communicate with humans in a special language they make up with their own individual human family. But in this episode, we're going to stick to barks instead of meows. Lots of your dog questions had a common theme you to know about some of the ways that dogs are different from humans. Jessica Heckman is a veterinarian and a dog researcher and she has a blog called the dog Zombie because she's obsessed with dog brains studying them not eating them anyway I. Guess You could say she's a dog scientists and she's here to answer your questions. Our first one comes from Margot who is five and lives in Amherst Massachusetts. Why did Adopt Tales That's a great question Margot whenever someone asked a question about why does one type of animal look one way and is set up one way and why is another type of animal built a different way the way I like to think about it is talking about that difference why? Why what we use it for? So dogs ancestors, wolves, ancient wolves had to run to catch their dinner and tales helps them balanced when they ran so that was they had them back. Then and dogs some dogs still do have to run as part of their job, right? Like she herding dogs have to do a fair amount of running but dogs also use their tails to communicate. So that's another good reason they have tails. They don't use noises quite as much to communicate as humans do but they use body language a lot more than humans do. So with dogs a tale, it's really high means I'm confident a tale that's held low means I'm. Nervous a tale that's really clamped rate underneath there but means please don't smell my but right now and also I'm really scared and then a wagging tail something all really familiar with because it can mean that the dog is happy but also you can see it in angry dogs I would just caution you to be really careful when you see a wagging tail overall, we try to look at the whole dog, not just the tail to interpret body language but the tail. Is definitely a very important part of the dogs tools for speaking why might dog wag its tail when it's happy or when it's mad? Why would drag tail for both possibilities I think from the dogs perception that they might be seeing something different from a wagging tail than we do. They have this very complex set of tools that they use in body language and we as humans because we're not dogs. We just have trouble fully interpreting that and so I think that. A. Wagging. Tail. It might look a little bit different to them with the dog is happy than if the dog is angry and we as humans might just not be able to perceive those differences. And sometimes, I think a dog who is angry or alarmed or considering that they might possibly by you will wag its tail almost as an appeasement gesture to say like Hey I'm not a threat I'm not don't hurt me but they might still be thinking I'm kind of scared of you and I'm prepared to bite if you come any closer. So it's just It's just always important to look at the whole dog to look at his face and his eyes, and you know how he's holding the rest of his body and not just the tail hello money aller five, six years old I live in Falls Church Virginia and my question is why thumbs up partner Paul. Hi Alex well I think dogs have their thumbs up on their paws to keep them out of their way because they are basically walking on their hands rates they're using their four limbs for something differently than what we use them for horses by the way have taken this to extreme they walk just on the tips of their middle three fingers. Into hooves. So I almost feel like it might be a better question to say why are human thumbs so far forward rather than why our dog thumb so far back we're actually the ones that are unusual. Because humans and other primates like monkeys and apes we have this unusual hand that we use to hold things because we evolved to climb rate, and so we would use our hands to climb up a tree and then humans are thumbs are are even more different than in other primates because we have these very complex hands that are good for really delicate work like holding pencil and things like that. So we're actually the unusual one but yeah, they they walk around their paws obviously and they don't want their thumbs to get in the way.

"For those that are new to this show. This is my little brother can help Amigo and I know this is gonNA sound strange but he honestly thinks That he can talk to docks I, am the duck Lord can't explain yourself. I. Am the Duck Lord. All ducks will dow down before me just joking because I'm not cool and let the ducks of their freedom. So I'm just like. What, and then they're like. And then get food and I see like that. which is ductless. Thank you so much. You're great. Lot, which means we should be friends and they're like. What calculator so kin do you think these docs have like something? That's like a language? Yeah. Like I some. Pretty far away from go. Whack. And they actually come now, my mother actually backs up on this. We see wind over the village and they fly in over the house keen them stands on the deck and Kohl's them and they fly in over the top of the houses and come in for landing on the river and and then just kind of swim the river and jump up in Kinsale with. Cucumbers and corn and. All the things that you feed dykes and they just and they just have the cucumbers they do. I have to be real not a big believer connor skeptical this whole scheme. But I'm not a pessimist I'm a scientist. So I really just think that can. Train them because every time he quacks, he always gives them food. So I think the ducks have just learned that quacking loud annoying brothers means food. So every time he quacks they come to him for food. But I thought, I'd run this theory by a fellow scientist just to be sure. Well. I haven't observed your brothers behavior with ducks but if he has gotten them conditioned by food to win over here arrives, they may be attracted to him by the food. Of course, if he spends time observing their behavior, he might have some insight into how the ducks behave, but I'd have to watch him to know for sure. This is Kathleen Dudzinska. He's the director of the Dolphin Communication Project. She spent the last thirty years studying dolphins in the way that they communicate. and. She says when it comes to learning what any animals are saying to each other the key is observation. You have to watch what they do, and so you want to look at what they do maybe what they say in terms of verbal signals with one another but also what the context is. So let me ask you this if you see a mother and her child walking down a sidewalk. And they suddenly grab hands. Why do you think they might have grabbed hands? Safety maybe something might have popped up. Maybe the crossing the road right. But if I tell you that they're not actually walking on a sidewalk. Of A busy street, but they're actually walking down a sidewalk in a park. than. The reasons why they might have grabbed hands are narrowed.

About Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

"Hello I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to. Classics for kids. Think of the most brilliant talented kid. You know maybe somebody in your class now imagine if that person couldn't be in class because starting at the age of five he or she was off performing for presidents, kings queens all sorts of world leaders. Well, that's what it was like to be both gung. Amadeus Mozart. Mozart was born in Salzburg Austria where his father leopold was a violinist and composer when Mozart junior was three, he climbed up to the keyboard and just started playing. That's when Mozart senior realized he had a genius on his hands. So he started the touring Mozart show he took his son both gun and his daughter Nano on the road to perform for royalty they went all over Europe. Sometimes staying away from home for years at a stretch everyone was amazed at how well the children played and especially at how well little both gone could improvise. That is makeup music on the spot using whatever tune they gave him. Votes, are composed his first piece when he was five had his first music published when he was seven and wrote his first opera at the age of twelve he was a Whiz at the keyboard and the violin most of Mozart's concertos for those instruments here for himself to play. Lose Friends with the best musicians of the day. So he wrote Concertos for their instruments to, for instance the French Horn. One friend played a newfangled instrument that Mozart. Loved the clarinet. A Concerts that he and other people put on Mozart wrote symphonies. And for celebrations he wrote serenade. When he worked for the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg the man who also employed his father Mozart composed religious music. Having, toured all over Europe as a child Mozart did not want to stay in Salzburg working for the Prince Archbishop when he grew up even though that's put his father wanted. So he moved to the big city of Vienna, which was full of music theatre and opera in Vienna Mozart married Constanza Vaber. He'd actually fallen in love with her older sister I and he tried to find steady work that he thought was worthy of how talented he was. Mozart had a hard time as an adult. He couldn't get over being a child prodigy the very talented kid back. Then grownup musicians were considered servants by the nobles who hired them, but kings and empresses had made a huge fuss over Mozart when he performed for them as a child so he didn't think of himself as a servant. He also never learned how to manage money. He couldn't resist the urge to buy new clothes or a piano or a billiard table whatever he wanted. Mozart. Died just before his thirty fifth birthday. It's amazing. How much incredibly beautiful music he wrote in such a short

Why Do Cats Sharpen Their Claws?

But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids

Why Do Cats Sharpen Their Claws?

"Okay, they're covered. Infer they live in our houses sometimes they sleep in our beds and yet in a lot of ways they're pretty much wild animals. What do you think I'm talking about. That's right. Cats lots of you have questions about these enigmatic creatures with whiskers that word enigmatic it means mysterious by the way. So we thought we'd go right to the source to get some answers for your questions. So Clooney, here's a question from Jack How do you catch per? Schmucky could you translate that for me? All right that's not gonNA work. Let's get a human who can actually answer. My name is Abigail Tucker and I've recently written a book called the line in the living room about humanity's long strange history with house cats. Wow Lyons in our living rooms think about it. The cat that curls up in your lap is related to a lion shaking its main on the Savannah in Kenya. But somewhere along their evolutionary path some wildcats decided that life was better near humans. Now, if you want to know more about evolution, go back to our previous episode, the one, we just did all about human evolution and you'll better understand how different species are related but have evolved into different kinds of animals. Most domesticated animals, farm animals like cows and pigs and pets like dogs have brains and bodies that have evolved or changed over time to make them look and act differently from their wild cousins. But Abigail Tucker says, that's not the case with cats. That's because their domestication story is a little bit different. A lot of times with animals that we domesticated. We saw things about them that we wanted like we thought we cows, we want their milk or oh sheep we want their will with cats. We didn't really do anything to attract them to us because humans ten thousand years ago when we are just transitioning from being hunter gatherers to being farmers, there wasn't anything about cats that we said we have to have that. So what happened was that cats actually kind of domesticated themselves we didn't. Bring them into our farms they came on their own, and that's because humans in these early settlements maybe ten thousand years ago had a lot of big piles of trash around and cats were kind of drawn to eating those and they came in almost more like raccoons, foxes than something like a cow that we might have intentionally raised. But over a lot of time in our company, cats began to change their brains and bodies in the same ways that other animals have changed there's and have. Become sort of more cuddly. So to speak pigs and rabbits, other domesticated animals have become cute over time with floppy ears or spots. Cats have changed to have some of those traits but not all you know you might have a black cat with some spots on it. That might look a little bit different from a wild animal or you might have a cat like the one. My mom has which looks very much like the kind of wildcat that still lives in the Near East today. And that's because you could almost say that cats are partially domesticated and that they came into our houses not because we wanted them to combat because they wanted to come. You said that there's nothing about cats that we need the same way that we need milk or we need wall or we want those things except I. Guess these days we would say the thing that we want from our cat is love and we don't always get it. Some cats don't seem to like people very much. That's a really good point. Yes I think one of the secrets about cats is that even though they're not any more closely related to humans than an animal like say a pig as and certainly they're not as close to us as a monkey as but. Cats have faces that look a lot like human faces for reasons that have to do with the way that cats hunt they have round faces because they have these really short jaws 'cause they're ambush predators and they deliver like a really hard killing bite. When they catch things, they have small noses because they're not sent predators like dogs falling over long distances and most important they've got these big round is planted right in the middle of their faces new just kind of how our is our two and. Cats have is like that for different reasons they have is like that because they need good depth perception so they can pounce on things from their hiding places, but this mixture of facial features that cats have looked a lot like the way humans look and actually a lot the way human kids luck and that's something I think that tends to make people put human emotions onto cats the fact that they really resemble us.

Leonardo!

"To. The Renaissance, Oh Italy, how you have suffered through the darkness of the Middle Ages, and now here we are standing on the cusp of a new era where we will turn our minds to nature. Humans, and the world striving to understand how it all works, congratulations to us all. We've made it. This speech is not even remotely real though it was very well delivered. Thank you very much money, but it is easy to mistake this sentiment as something that people at the time might have actually felt. Most likely no one at the time realized that a new era, the renaissance had begun in the year fourteen hundred it's not like a giant switch flipped flooding the so called dark, ages with the bright light of the renaissance like US folks were just living their lives day to day. Most people will probably never even realized that the world was changing in such tremendous ways. It took historians to do that our story centers around Italy which in the early eighteen hundreds became the center of the renaissant. which radiated to the world the term renaissance refers to a time period that brought a new focus on philosophy and the arts sciences, understanding of the world and the mathematics behind it, and also a humans place in it. All like all other times it was also a period filled with wars and conflict because you know people right but it was a period of great advancement and achievement. Some of the greatest the world has ever known. The most famous and probably most important figure from this time and place was a left handed polymath who is unmarried and socially mismatched parents didn't even pay for him to be educated. Luckily for him and for the rest of us, he was really smart and he worked hard to keep getting smarter. No one could argue about his genius, His name was Leonardo Da Vinci. As. A young boy without the means for an Education Leonardo took advantage of the apprentice system in Italy, his natural ability with art and strong grasp of geometry and math, which she somehow learned without ever actually going to school earned him a spot as an apprentice to an artist in Florence named Ferruccio. Broke Yo is a leading painter and sculptor an his workshop near the Arno River Leonardo rose from sweeping the floors and mixing paints to working side by side with his master. It was not uncommon for an apprentice to handle much of the actual painting in a workshop and Leonardo was no different much of the painted onto canvases signed by Rubio was actually put there by Leonardo in fourteen seventy two at only twenty years of age Davinci officially became a master himself. This meant he could accept commissions for his own work which he did this how you made money. But he also found patronage or support from powerful political leaders. He moved to Milan to work under the Duke of Milan a man named sports. He originally got sports as attention by making him a lute from a horse go and silver. Which is pretty Nedal for being honest. This horse had instrument must have worked because sports decided to pay him a bunch of money. For Seventeen years in Milan, he made statues designed architectural features, created models and drawings. The even painted the masterpiece the last supper on the wall of the Monastery of Santa Maria. Della GRADS E. In addition to all of this, he was learning about the anatomy of living creatures, including people. Of course, do this he had to dissect cadavers or dead bodies? And to get these, he had to dig them up when no one was looking. Just pretty gross, but people learned a lot from his willingness to get his hands dirty. Honestly he was kind of a Rockstar people wanted to hire him for everything and he honestly left a lot of jobs unfinished because more. We're always coming his way. But when he did finish something, people would rush to see it and flocks like we might do for a concert or a Broadway show today. As. If this wasn't enough he was also designing some of the most incredible technology. The world has ever seen. Remember he was a polymath an expert at many thanks. Most of his designs were never actually built like a helicopter and a tank, a diving suit and a super mega gigantic crossbow. These just existed as detailed drawings in his many notebooks filled with a never ending flow of ideas.

How will we fix climate change?

"Now. When we were born climate change is already kind of a big thing and that's because our parents and just people of the previous generation started building the factories in releasing these greenhouse gas into the like that Kinda take you off that they're just. GonNa leave you this like dying planet. Does that like annoy at all? I think it does these are my friends are just wanted to ask them if they're also super terrified about climate change I mean it's up to us for some reason to fix our planet in just to fix what all our ancestors have wrought upon us. Okay. So yeah, we're on the same page. It just feels like we're all just kinda like stock on this. Sinking boat is the planet's heating up with no way to stop it maybe we need to dislike travel to Mars or something. There are no planets in our solar system where human being could just get off the ship and walk around and live. This is Tony Del Genio and I am a scientist for NASA. BREAKING NASA I do research on Earth's climate and how the Earth's climate is changing because of the stuff that people are putting into the atmosphere and do research on other planets in the solar system I've been involved in a few NASA. Space missions to other planets. Awesome. People on Earth may decide to try to colonize Mars, but it's going to be a big challenge to do it because there are a lot of roadblocks to actually making it a place where people could live. Moore's is an extremely cold planet much colder than human beings can tolerate and it's air is very thin. It's less than one percent as thick as our atmosphere is and it's not made of nitrogen oxygen. The things that we breathe it's made mostly of carbon dioxide and so human beings couldn't breathe it. If you walked around without a spacesuit, you'd immediately died. Seems like impending doom. So I. Guess we're kind of stuck on earth. But you know Tony says a might actually not be the worst. Global warming is not going to kill off everyone. It's going to make it harder to grow crops. It's going to create more heatwaves it's going to. Make it hard for people to live near the coast because of rising sea levels and so you have to find ways to adapt to climate change. I had this idea since I was really little like six about my way to fix global warming and it's ridiculous but like when I was six. I want to share this with. NASA have to see my idea. It's basically like a giant, a C units like the AC unit in my home, but it gets power off collecting the heat in the atmosphere and then use that to create steam the turns things we create like a sustainable environment with just like a whole bunch of these massive AC unit just littered around the globe because the hotter it got the more power, get new return on faster than would stabilize, and then the A. C. would slow down. And I know it's ridiculous. It was just this funny idea of wanted to talk to someone at NASA for for years. So while the trick is you'd have to find a way to make these massive AC's without creating even more heat right because what an AC does is it takes heat out of one place but. Pushes it someplace else? So around so that's always the problem with you can move it, but it's hard to get rid of it entirely. But just for good record I was six. But yet like you know that's good idea for six maybe we could like grab the coldness from space we can just be like. He'd outlets. Let's just throw it out. Yeah. Well, you know there are a lot of people who have. About how to offset the heating that we're already causing one of the problems with any idea for Geo engineering is that the earth is pretty complicated place and something that you do in one place has an effect someplace else. We're not smart enough yet to think five steps ahead and understand what all of the unintended consequences of one idea or another might be. Still what most people would say is you're better off not putting so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in the first place. But like. Are you hopeful about the future? I am hopeful about the future you know we're not going to kill off all the life on earth. All we have to do is some time in the relatively near future. We just have to make decisions to limit the amount of greenhouse gases that we put into the atmosphere, and there's still time for us to do that. I believe that as people start to see in their own lives, the evidence of climate change that some point we'll reach a tipping point in public opinion where people will say you know what? We really do have to do something about this.

Music that Imitates Inanimate Objects

"Hello. I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. It's pretty obvious that at the beginning of the second movement of Beethoven's Eighth Symphony The Orchestra is imitating something mechanical. That's not a clock ticking. It's a metronome, the machine that was invented to show exactly how fast or slow a piece of music should be played before the metronome. The only way to show the tempo of a piece was by writing fast slow, very fast or very slow usually in Italian on the music. But a composer had no way of telling you exactly how fast very fast was. That's where the. Comes in. In, the early eighteen hundreds Dutch inventor named Dietrich Nichols Vinko perfected a machine that could be adjusted to take at set speeds, but Vinko wasn't a good salesman. So he didn't get credit for it. A friend of Beethoven's Johann. NEPOMUK melt. Seoul was the one who took out the patent on the metronome and marketed it. So he gets the credit. When you see 'em m equals sixty on a piece of music.

Beethoven's Symphonies

"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin Fransius of Haydn is known as the father of the symphony because he took that form of orchestra music and perfected it. But no one changed the symphony more than Ludvig Fund Beethoven. The First Symphony Beethoven wrote definitely sounds like it was influenced by Haydn's music. By the time Beethoven wrote his second symphony tragedy had struck, but you'd never know it from the music. The Summer Beethoven wrote his Second Symphony was the summer he realized he was going death. Instead of letting his misery out in his music Beethoven put it all into a letter at the end of which he said he wasn't going to let deafness stop him from being a musician. When Napoleon Bonaparte started conquering Europe Van was a huge fan because he thought Napoleon was going to help ordinary people. Beethoven planned to dedicate his third symphony to Napoleon. But then Napoleon. Crowned himself emperor proving that he was more interested in power than people. Beethoven was furious and changed the name of his symphony number three to ero- Ika the heroic symphony. Beethoven's Fourth Symphony has some very dancing music. Sometimes. The fourth kind of gets lost in the shuffle between the Aurora and the even more famous symphony that came next Beethoven's fifth. Avenue. The man who wrote the first biography of Beethoven claimed that the composer meant the opening at the to be knocking at the door. But a student of Beethoven's thought his teacher had nothing more faithfully mind than a bird call from a kind of sparrow a yellowhammer. Whether or not Beethoven included a bird in his fifth. He certainly put birds and a lot more nature into his six, which even has a nature nickname, the pastoral or pastorale symphony. No birds at all in Beethoven's symphony number seven just rousing music. In Beethoven's Eighth Symphony something is clearly ticking. More about that next week, which brings us to Beethoven's ninth a piece that completely changed how people thought of symphonies. No one had ever used singers in a symphony before, but Beethoven put plenty of them into the last movement of the peace in his famous. Ode to Joy, with words by German playwright. Friedrich Schiller. I one person seems it. And eventually a whole chorus joins in. People all over the world know and love Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. When the Berlin Wall came down, they celebrated with a huge concert featuring Beethoven's ninth. I've been sung it in China where audiences went crazy next week the mechanical object in Beethoven's symphony number eight and a lot more pieces of music describe inanimate objects
