Nigeria sprudelt über vor Lebensfreude, Kreativität und Fortschrittsglaube. Einerseits. Andererseits leiden das Land und seine Menschen an korrupten Strukturen, Terror und Umweltzerstörung. Von Seele, Geist und (Gemüts)-Zustand der nigerianischen Gesellschaft handeln auch die Lieder des Deutsch-Nigerianischen Musikers Adé Bantu. Mit seiner Band „Bantu“ hält er Nigeria den Spiegel vor – und bleibt trotz aller Widrigkeiten immer optimistisch. Ihren Optimismus findet Tobore Ovuorie nur langsam wieder. 2013 recherchierte die vielfach ausgezeichnete investigative Journalistin zum Thema Menschen- und Organhandel. Für die Recherchen infiltrierte sie als vermeintliche Prostituierte einen Menschenhändlerring. Ihre Geschichte sorgte für einen Aufschrei, nicht nur in Nigeria - aber die Autorin zahlte dafür auch einen hohen Preis. Über Ihre schockierenden und traumatischen Erlebnisse hat sie mit uns gesprochen.

Studying the history of life is an important venture. It's how we understand why certain characteristics exist in living organisms, and it can also be used to explain the importance of biological events that are happening today. A study on the population density of the Tyrannosaurus Rex, one of the world's most famous predators, was first published on Science and reported on the National Geographic. It's a huge claim, with researchers estimating that a total of 2.5 billion T.rex have lived in North America, the native region of the species, going out as far north as Alaska and as far south as Mexico across a time span of two to three million years. This estimation is a huge claim and has certainly caught the eye of paleontology enthusiasts, However, there are a wide variety of variables that can compromise the validity of the information being tested: the location where the bones are found; shifts caused by glacial patterns and tracks throughout the years; inconsistencies with carbon-14 dating, which provides an approximate age; and even human intervention, which may not be enough to fill in the gaps in information that we do not know nor have the tools to understand just yet. If data-driven ventures cannot be used to sample what we know to be true, then is it still worth it? Are approximations a step in the right direction or is it too rooted in theory to be useful? How Much Hindsight Is Too Much?: The pursuit of estimates often discounts the importance of absolutes. In paleontology, there are plenty of assumptions made that may affect the results of their research. As Alexander mused, much remains unsaid about the foundations of the study—and it may have an impact on whether or not scientists are taking the right perspective on the matter. Analyzing data from the source and having a clear log of how the researchers conducted their tests is standard procedure. However, what is the impact of creating logs for circumstances that can no longer be observed by anyone living? “Who decided that the dinosaur is a dinosaur or not a dinosaur? Who decides that it sits in this area of time as opposed to another? What if my carbon dating is wrong, and maybe this aquatic animal that we didn't think existed prehistorically actually did exist?” Alexander asked, expressing doubts. Transparent and Tangible Research: This is the second time that scientists have made an attempt to estimate the population density of T-rexes in the past, and results closely resemble an earlier estimate that was published in 1993. The difference between these two papers is that this most recent study utilizes the latest in T-rex biology research to set upper and lower limits on the total population—one approximation after another. Since there is so much inexactness and uncertainty in what we do, it is important to focus on the fundamentals: ideas, principles, and beliefs that we know to be observable, objective, and tangible. When we go overboard on theory, we may find ourselves defining a biased picture of what the data represents. This concern is not just limited to research and development in paleontology. With the vast variety of tools, knowledge, and technology that we have at our disposal today, it can become all too easy to take the wrong direction. When we take the next step forward, we need to make sure that our feet are planted firmly on the ground. Dealing With the Metaphorical T-rex of Today: At the pace that science and technology is developing today, it's safe to assume that more discoveries will be made—not just in paleontology, but in other sciences and across other industries as well. It is vital that scientists continue working towards making these discoveries more accessible to the public while staying true to the path of innovation. There is a different impact in analyzing tangible beings, objects, and events.

Minute Five: From Frost Giants to Frozen The Casket of Ancient Winters! In the fifth minute of Kenneth Branagh's 2011 film Thor... The frost giants land in Norway. They're on the wrong side of the fjord, but that doesn't stop Laufey from releasing the power of the casket of ancient winters to not only freeze the water but also everything in its path, including our viking mother and child, who we had only just gotten to know. Oh – and it's not the tesseract. It's the casket of ancient winters. It's easy to make that mistake as they're both blue glowing cubes. Okay, so this one has handles, but still... Speaking of the casket of ancient winters, we talk about a great Walt Simonson run called The Surtur Saga that weirdly connects all three Thor films as it brings in Surtur and Malekith. Marvel surprises us by killing a kid in the film. Okay, so it's one we hardly knew, but still... There's also some talk about Norse mythology about giants, parentage, and more. The frost giants looked very different when they first appeared in the comics. They've evolved over time to land on what they look like here, but we talk about how they've changed. We also chat about their weapons, how they form ice on their bodies to use in the battle, their armor, and their tattoos. But what do the frost giants actually want? And how do they travel through the bifrost? Even if the frost giants are just twirling their mustaches, we still enjoy them. Kenneth Branagh is clearly having fun here with the Casket, the frost giants, and the Asgardians. Branagh really wanted to keep the camera in close to understand the chaos of battle. It works. But it is hard to see, particularly as it's night too. There's also a lot of handheld camera which adds to the chaos. It's kinda hard to tell the frost giants are actually taller than everyone else but you can tell when you pause. It's cool to see the frost giants' skill of growing ice on their bodies to use as weapons. Again... hard to tell in the dark. Odin uses his uru spear Gungnir to stab and flip a frost giant over him. It's pretty cool. Oh – and Odin's younger. We mostly like the look but it does make us wonder... how do gods grow old? And are they immortal? Odin brings up this fact so we're that much more confused. It's interesting how myths are created and we have some fun speculating here.

Social media is not just for modern folk. In this episode from the Overheard archives, we'll look at how in ancient Pompeii, people also shared what they thought, who they met with, what they ate—just with different technology. For more information on this episode, visit nationalgeographic.com/overheard Want more? The new book Lost Cities, Ancient Tombs: A History of the World in 100 Discoveries details the story of Pompeii and other milestones in the human journey. Pompeii is not just an archaeological site; it's one huge graveyard. But it was very much a living city right up until it was snuffed out by Mt. Vesuvius. When you think of an avalanche, you probably think of snow. But volcanoes also cause avalanches. Archaeologists believe that it was an avalanche of rocketing, boiling gas and sediment that cooked Pompeiians alive in 79 A.D. In the late 1800s, archaeologists started pouring plaster into voids left in the hardened volcanic ash covering Pompeii. The result? Full-sized casts of Vesuvius' victims—human and otherwise. Do you live in the shadow of a volcano? Here are a few safety tips for when that telltale rumbling begins. Could Chernobyl be our contemporary version of Pompeii? Some archaeologists think so. Also explore: Curious about how Pompeii's graffiti compares to the stuff in your own backyard? Check out images of ancient Pompeiian graffiti at the Ancient Graffiti Project. Vesuvius will erupt again. The question is when, and what will Pompeiians do when it does?

In his work, Scott seeks to demonstrate that the story of God is not just a story that happened thousands of years ago, but it is also a story that's happening right now, in your life and mine.

The beauty of Scott's work is that he gives fresh language and visuals to the spiritual journey.

So, please sit back, get ready to laugh, to think deeply, and to be encouraged by Scott Erickson. May you come away from this conversation with new eyes to see how the story of Love and Grace and God is playing out today, even in your story.

The U.S. government faces a looming shutdown if Congress can’t pass a spending bill by midnight tonight — but that didn’t stop lawmakers from enjoying their annual baseball game. ABC News has the story. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports that President Biden’s legislative agenda is under threat, even as House Democrats are expected to vote on a key infrastructure bill today. Britney Spears is free from her father’s legal oversight, a major development in the singer’s quest for independence. The L.A. Times reports. Salmon is the most popular fish in the U.S. But, according to National Geographic, Americans seeking out sustainably raised salmon might not be getting what they paid for. Netflix says Korean drama Squid Game is likely its most popular show of all time. Variety explains the success of the series, whose violent and dystopian plot sees hundreds of cash-strapped contestants compete in children’s games for a chance at millions.
Literature's most famous castaway, Robinson Crusoe, was washed up on a desert island - where he would remain for 28 years - on 30th September, 1659.By selecting this date, author Daniel Defoe ensured that his fictional protagonist's fate pre-dated the real-life estrangement of Royal Navy man Alexander Selkirk, who was stranded some 46 years later: 14 years prior to Defoe writing his novel.In this episode, Arion, Rebecca and Olly explain how his story pioneered not only the English novel, but also the movie trailer; ask whether Crusoe's narrative voice sounds like an authentic young man of the period, or betrays the fact that Defoe was nearly sixty when he created him; and dig around in the writer's early career (including, but not limited to, creating perfume from civets)...Further Reading:• Daniel Defoe profile (The British Library): https://www.bl.uk/people/daniel-defoe• ‘Debunking the Myth of the ‘Real' Robinson Crusoe' (National Geographic, 2016): https://www.nationalgeographic.com/culture/article/robinson-crusoe-alexander-selkirk-history• The Shipwreck scene from ‘Robinson Crusoe' (1927): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCaYAD1ZGuMFor bonus material and to support the show, visit Patreon.com/RetrospectorsWe'll be back tomorrow!

Stuart and Andie talk with Jason Silva, philosopher, futurist, and host of National Geographic's Brain Games, Shots of Awe, and the Flow Sessions podcast. Their talk is a wild ride through the nature of reality. It's a mind-melting mind-meld of meanings as burners and as earthlings. It's a hint on how to — as Larry Harvey said — “wash your own brain." They discuss life, death and how a bicycle can induce synchronicity and reverie. They explore how psychedelics can induce pivotal mental states of suggestibility for brainwashing ourselves for the better, or succumbing to delusional thinking, or both. They discuss scheduling nowness and eternity. They try to control their ecstatic surrender, and if you listen closely, you may hear a love story hidden between all the philosophy quotations. Finally, they explore key ingredients to Burning Man's secret sauce that doesn't exist. But then again, does existence even exist? https://www.thisisjasonsilva.com/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClYb9NpXnRemxYoWbcYANsAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xzm6YkEw8NU
DID YOU KNOW ... Research has shown that 2+ hours a week spent in nature is associated with higher levels of health and happiness. We learned that valuable fact and many others on this week's episode of The MindStrong Project Podcast thanks to Award-Winning author, Florence Williams. The MSP crew has long believed in the value of nature-based living and training, and Florence has spent her life's work putting those principles to print. This "Natural Savage" is perhaps best known for her book, "The Nature Fix" (a favorite of the MSP crew). Simply put, this podcast, along with her book, are a must for anyone who wants to better understand how nature plays into the bigger picture of intuitive health and performance. ABOUT FLORENCE WILLIAMS Florence is an American-born journalist and non-fiction author who investigates and chronicles the connections between the environment, health, and science. Her work includes being a contributing editor for Outside Magazine, freelance writing for National Geographic, the New York Times, and various other popular publications.

Mixed messages on COVID-vaccine booster shots are leaving Americans with lots of questions. The Wall Street Journal has some answers. National Geographic reports on how lawmakers are pushing to compensate survivors of the first atomic-bomb test, which took place in New Mexico. Many people who lived near the blast site have had serious health issues. The latest weapon in the war on drugs is a predictive A.I. on your doctor’s computer. Wired shows how it can determine who receives treatment for pain — and who doesn’t. The Times of London details new research showing that when pandas are too happy with their environment, they don’t go out looking for mates. The key to encouraging pairings that create future generations may be habitats that are a little less comfortable.
The Biden administration’s move to deport thousands of Haitian migrants is drawing further criticism. NBC looks at the latest developments, and HuffPost explains why the U.S. is on track to admit fewer refugees than it did during the Trump years. Disputes among Democrats could derail Biden’s goals on the environment. The Atlantic says some progressives and moderates have begun hinting that no new climate legislation could be better than a compromise measure. Democratic lawmakers want to create tens of thousands of jobs fighting climate change. The Washington Post explores what a Civilian Climate Corps could look like. National Geographic breaks down new research showing that birds flocked to big cities during pandemic lockdowns.
