The quest for the Northwest Passage -- a navigable sea route through the Canadian arctic -- was long and dangerous. Even so, when Sir John Franklin led two ships, the Erebus and Terror, on a last mission to complete mapping of North America's icy archipelago, there was every reason for confidence. The Terror and Erebus were last seen by European whalers off the coast of Greenland in the summer of 1845, after which they simply disappeared into the frozen north.

Lynne Cox is arguably the most accomplished ocean swimmer of all time. She set the record for the English Channel in 1972, was the first woman to swim the Cook Strait in New Zealand in 1975, famously swam between the US and the USSR in 1987 across the Bering Strait in bone-chilling 3 degree waters, and then even colder in Antarctica and Greenland. She has a list of achievements too long to list here. Lynne is also an author, and has a new book called Tales of Al - The Water Rescue Dog, detailing her experiences with Italy's elite, highly specialized corps of water rescue dogs who jump from helicopters and save lives.

Biden calls on refiners to produce more gas; Griner's Russian detention extended; McConnell backs bipartisan gun deal | Top headlines for June 14 & 15, 2022

President Joe Biden is calling on U.S. oil refiners to produce more gasoline and diesel. In a draft letter to refiners, Biden says their profits have tripled during a time of war between Russia and Ukraine as Americans struggle with record high prices at the pump. Biden writes that the oil companies need to work with his administration to bring forward "near-term solutions that address the crisis.” Gas prices nationwide are averaging roughly $5 a gallon. That's an economic burden for many Americans and a political threat for the president's fellow Democrats going into the midterm elections. Biden's message that corporate greed is contributing to higher prices might resonate with voters. Today the Fed will reveal how much they will raise interest rates. Experts believe it will increase by three quarter of a percentage point, more than triple what is typical. Authorities say two police officers were shot and killed while investigating a possible stabbing in a Los Angeles suburb. It happened about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday at a motel in the city of El Monte. Authorities say officers confronted a man in a motel room where shots rang out and the gunman then fled to the parking lot where more gunfire was exchanged. The gunman was shot and died. The officers who died were described as a veteran with more than two decades of experience and a rookie with less than a year on the job. El Monte's interim police chief called them heroes who died serving their community. The National Weather Service is telling people to prepare for excessive heat in the the Midwest and Southeast with warnings from Michigan to Florida. U.S. Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina has been ousted from Congress in his Republican primary after voting to impeach Donald Trump over the Jan. 6 insurrection. He is the first of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump to lose a reelection bid.  U.S. basketball star Brittney Griner will remain in Russian custody through at least July 2 after her detention was extended for a third time, Russian state-run media has reported. The report gave no timeline for Griner's trial, but cited a top Russian diplomat as saying that she will not be considered for detainee swaps until her case has been investigated. The 31-year-old WNBA center was arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling after Russian airport authorities claimed in February to have found cannabis products in her luggage. Her supporters have expressed concern that Moscow will use her as a bargaining chip amid tensions over its war in Ukraine. Lots of Major League action Tuesday night as the Cardinals rout the Pirates in a double header and Chris Bassitt pitches 8 innings to help the Mets beat the Brewers, meanwhile the Los Angeles Rams hang on to Travin Howard.  Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced his support for his chamber's emerging bipartisan gun agreement. The Kentucky Republican's endorsement Tuesday boosted momentum for modest but notable election-year action by Congress on an issue that's deadlocked lawmakers for three decades. An outline of the accord was released Sunday by 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans. Leaders hope it can be translated into legislation in days and voted on by Congress before lawmakers' July 4 recess. McConnell's backing was the latest indication that last month's gun massacres in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, had reconfigured the political calculations for some in the GOP. The House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol has postponed a hearing that was to feature Trump-era Justice Department officials. The hearing had been scheduled for Wednesday, but the committee on Tuesday morning said it had been delayed. A spokesman for the panel attributed the postponement to “a number of scheduling factors, including production timeline and availability of members and witnesses.” Raging floodwaters that pulled houses into rivers and forced rescues by air and boat across the Yellowstone region in Montana have begun to recede. But tourists and others were still stranded Tuesday after roads and bridges were knocked out by torrential rains that swelled waterways to record levels. Wall Street closed mostly lower on Tuesday, a day after tumbling into a bear market on worries that high inflation will push central banks to clamp the brakes too hard on the economy. UPS has unveiled a battery-powered, four-wheeled cycle to more efficiently haul cargo in some of the world's most congested streets and to reduce its carbon footprint. The company unveiled the tiny delivery vehicles Tuesday in New York City. It said a trial run is focused on the city and several places in Europe. A decades-old dispute between Denmark and Canada over a tiny, barren and uninhabited rock in the Arctic has come to an end. A border will be drawn across the half-square-mile Hans Island in the waterway between the northwestern coast of Greenland and Canada's Ellesmere Island. President Joe Biden has told the largest federation of labor unions that he's rebuilding the U.S. economy around workers. He's drawing a contrast with Republicans who have increasingly attracted blue-collar votes. Biden says, “We should encourage unions." His speech Tuesday at the AFL-CIO convention in Philadelphia was an attempt to reset the debate on the economy. His approval ratings have slid as consumer prices and the cost of gasoline have surged. U.S. producer prices surged 10.8% in May from a year earlier, underscoring the ongoing threat to the economy from a bout of inflation that shows no sign of slowing. Tuesday's report from the Labor Department showed that the producer price index — which measures inflation before it reaches consumers — rose at slightly slower pace last month than in April, when it jumped 10.9% from a year earlier, and is down from an 11.5% yearly gain in March. Pope Francis has blasted the “ferocity and cruelty” of Russian troops in Ukraine while praising the “heroism” and “courage” of Ukrainians to defend their land. Francis also insisted there weren't “good guys and bad guys” and that Russia was in some ways provoked by NATO's expansion east. A man once briefly married to Britney Spears has pleaded not guilty to felony stalking after showing up at the pop star's wedding to her longtime boyfriend last week. Forty-year-old Jason Alexander pleaded not guilty to the charge, along with misdemeanor counts of trespassing, vandalism and battery. A California judge set his bail at $100,000 and ordered him to stay at least 100 yards from Spears for three years. —The Associated Press See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Send a donation to the scientific revolution: https://bit.ly/3lcAasB What do ice ages, geology, crust shifts and super ancient civilizations have to do with each other? Well, when taken together, they tell the story of much, much longer timeline of technologically advanced humans. Our episode this week is with engineer and archeological researcher Mario Buildreps, who after years of research into the architecture of ancient cities, found something very strange. No matter where he looked, the northern face of ancient buildings was pointed towards Greenland. As he looked deeper and deeper into his dataset of great circle orientations, he realized something even weirder - the intersections of these structures clustered into five nodes. By correlating his findings with data from the Vostok ice sheet, the age of the ocean floor, and the layout of tectonic boundaries, he stumbled on an extraordinary theory. Not only were these structures much older than we realized - maybe ten times as old - but they told a completely new story of the geologic history of the Earth. #ancientcivilizations #poleshift #paradigmshift Check out Mario Buildreps' work: https://www.mariobuildreps.com/ Check out Mario Buildreps' YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/MarioBuildreps/ Check our short-films channel, @DemystifySci: https://youtu.be/1OCL5Lq8m6s Join our mailing list https://bit.ly/3v3kz2S PODCAST INFO: Anastasia completed her PhD studying microbial communication at Columbia University.

In today's episode we talk with geographer Julie Klinger, from the University of Delaware, about the geography and geopolitics surrounding the exploitation of technology-critical elements, particularly rare earth elements. The conversation is based on Julie's book, called Rare Earth Frontiers: From Terrestrial Subsoils to Lunar Landscapes, and follows closely three cases considered in the book: 1) the former cvasi-monopoly held by the Bayan Obo mine in northern China, 2) potential exploitations in the remote Amazon in Brazil, and 3) prospective plans for mining on the surface of the Moon. Among the topics that we touch on are the ways in which discourse–more than geology–shapes the current global geography and geopolitics of rare earth mining, how the exploitations are justified through particular uses of language (hinterland, frontier, etc), and how big projects are implemented without the wants, needs and desires of local people's being taken into consideration. ===== (Re)Sources Julie Klinger, Rare Earth Frontiers: From Terrestrial Subsoils to Lunar Landscapes, Cornell University Press (2018). https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34692015-rare-earth-frontiers Greenland's Rare-Earth election https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2021/05/greenlands-rare-earth-election/618785/ https://www.npr.org/2021/04/07/985046099/opposition-wins-elections-in-greenland-casting-doubt-on-future-of-rare-earth-min?t=1654271294070 https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/greenland-bans-uranium-mining-halting-rare-earths-project-2021-11-10/ Sweden gives the green light for a new iron mine on Sami territory https://www.dw.com/en/sweden-gives-green-light-to-controversial-iron-mine/a-61225593 https://www.reuters.com/world/sweden-gives-qualified-go-ahead-northern-kallak-iron-ore-mine-2022-03-22/ Planned lithium (jadarite) exploitation in Serbia & subsequent protests https://lefteast.org/lithium-exploitation-in-serbia/ https://lefteast.org/rio-linglong-eco-uprising-in-serbia/

The following is a 1st hand account from the Pilot of the boldest and most massive air disaster rescue mission ever undertaken by the Canadian military in the High Arctic. Edge of your seat story, and incredibly emotional.Every year, in the cold and darkness of late October, personnel at Canadian Forces Station Alert on Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, gather at a cairn near the runway to remember the crew and passengers of Hercules 130322 who lost their lives during a resupply mission to the station. On October 30, 1991, at approximately 4:40 p.m., flight 22 of Operation Boxtop – as the biannual resupply mission is called – was on its final approach to the station from Thule Air Force Base in Greenland. As the CC-130 Hercules from 435 Transport and Rescue Squadron, loaded with 3,400 litres of diesel fuel, began its descent, the pilot flying lost sight of the runway. Moments later, radar contact and communication were lost as the aircraft crashed approximately 16 km south of the station. The crew of another CC-130 Hercules, also bound for Alert, saw the fires of the crash and identified the location of Boxtop 22. The crash took the lives of five Canadian Armed Forces members – four died in the crash and one perished before help arrived.Don't forget about our training programs!

Gun Violence Is A Public Health Issue As illustrated by the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas this week, gun violence is a pervasive issue in the United States. The entire Science Friday team extends our condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy. One reason gun violence is so difficult to understand is that for a long time, there was a federal freeze on funding gun-violence research. That was due to the “Dickey Amendment” which was instated in 1996. This rule barred the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from using funds to fund research into gun violence, with the reasoning that research into this area would “advocate or promote gun control.” The 2020 federal omnibus spending bill reinstated funding for this research for the first time in more than 20 years, opening up research into gun violence. This comes during a time where healthcare professionals, including pediatricians and epidemiologists, have elevated their voices to say that gun violence is a public health issue. Firearm-related injury is now the leading cause of death of children and adolescents in the United States. Joining guest host John Dankosky to discuss gun violence as a public health issue is Roxanne Khamsi, science writer based in Montreal, Quebec.   Don't Panic About Monkeypox Yet, Says Expert This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced it was investigating five cases of purported monkeypox that had been found in the United States. This is a disease that's endemic to parts of central and west Africa, and is rarely seen outside of those regions. The small number of cases here in the U.S is unusual. Monkeypox can spread from person to person through skin-to-skin contact or respiratory droplets. Its most striking symptom is an active rash and lesions in the mouth, though can also present as flu-like and include fever, headache, and soreness. As we're still grappling with our COVID world, many people are concerned about this new illness. Dr. Anne Rimoin, professor of epidemiology at UCLA's School of Public Health in Los Angeles, California, joins guest host John Dankosky to explain what's going on with this wave.   Baby Formula 101: Feeding During A Shortage If you're the parent of a newborn, you've likely experienced how difficult it's gotten to find your little ones' favorite baby formula. In February, Abbott Nutrition, a major manufacturer of baby food and formula, shut down a factory in Michigan. This came after the FDA began investigating serious—and even fatal—bacterial infections in infants who were fed formula from the plant. This one factory produces around a quarter of the United States' baby formula, so closing it has left store shelves empty and parents scrambling to feed their babies. In a desperate state, many parents have resorted to switching their babies' formula, seeking out donated breast milk, and even making formula at home. Guest host John Dankosky speaks with Dr. Bridget Young, an assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Rochester and founder of Baby Formula Expert, about the makeup of baby formula, why it's so important, and how parents can safely feed babies during the ongoing shortage. Breast Milk Banks Are Struggling To Meet Demand The nationwide shortage of baby formula is also impacting Hoosier families. More than 40 percent of retailers across the country reported being out of formula stock during the first week of May, according to Datasembly, a firm that collects data from grocery stores and other retailers. The Milk Bank is an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that provides donated breast milk to babies in the neonatal intensive care unit and babies with medical needs who benefit from human milk. Advancement Director Jenna Streit said the organization is seeing an increase in requests from families desperate to feed their babies.

But now, many species of shark are threatened, mainly as a result of unsustainable fishing practices. Dr. David Shiffman, marine researcher and social media shark advocate, writes in his new book Why Sharks Matter: A Deep Dive with the World's Most Misunderstood Predator about people's fascination with sharks. He shares some amazing shark facts—did you know that Greenland sharks can live for 400 years, and some have been found with the remains of polar bears in their stomachs? Shiffman joins John Dankosky to share his shark lore, and to talk about the role of sharks in the ocean ecosystem, safety around sharks, threats to their survival, and what individuals can do to help protect these powerful, yet misunderstood, creatures.   Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs on sciencefriday.com.

For those in training and recently finished, we will learn how to maximize this season. We’ll spend the first half tackling topics like original motivation, long-haul stamina, pearls and pitfalls of living in community, debt, vision for one’s next step to the nations, and helping the needy now tensioned with investing in education to help others later. We pray this will infuse you with the hope of Christ and give you eyes to see this refining, exciting time as He does. For the second hour, we’ll divide into small discussion groups with those from your same stage of the journey (i.e., recent grads, residents, MS1-2, MS3-4, PA/NP, pre-med, RN, PT/OT/ST, dental; optional spouse group). With facilitators who have gone through it before, we’ll dive into the individualized questions you have and brainstorm how God might sustain you now and lead you in the upcoming season.
