On this week's show: A boost in research ships from an unlikely source, and how the 2022 Tonga eruption shook earth, water, and air around the world For decades, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society caused controversy on the high seas; now it's turning its patrolling ships into research vessels. Online News Editor David Grimm discusses how this change of heart came about with host Sarah Crespi. Also this week, how atmospheric waves can push tsunamis around the globe. Producer Meagan Cantwell talks with Emily Brodsky, an earthquake physicist at University of California, Santa Cruz, about data from a multitude of sensors showing how waves in the air drove the fast-moving tsunamis that raced around the planet after the January Hunga eruption in Tonga.

He pays his tithing first. He will literally see the windows of heaven open.”President Nelson Quote #1: In Samoa, Fiji, and Tahiti, just as the meetings began, the rain stopped. But in Tonga, the rain did not stop. Yet 13,000 faithful Saints came hours early to get a seat, waited patiently through a steady downpour, and then sat through a very wet two-hour meeting. We saw vibrant faith at work among each of those islanders—faith sufficient to stop the rain and faith to persevere when the rain did not stop. ( April 2021, “Christ is Risen; Faith in Him Will Move Mountains”)President Nelson Quote #2:  We live in a time prophesied long ago, when “all things shall be in commotion; and surely, men's hearts shall fail them; for fear shall come upon all people.” That was true before the pandemic, and it will be true after. Commotion in the world will continue to increase. In contrast, the voice of the Lord is not “a voice of a great tumultuous noise, but … it [is] a still voice of perfect mildness, [like] a whisper, and it [pierces] even to the very soul.” (April 2021 conference)Albert Einstein Quote: “There are only two ways to live your life.

Since May 2021 Dr Langley is the RACS President. Sally is married to Don Miskell. Sally's son Sam is married with one son and Don's three children are married all with children. That makes nine grandchildren. Sally has an ageing mother who she attends to. Sally enjoys family activities, running, swimming, gym, tramping and music. In this episode, we discuss her journey into medicine, her love for music, navigating solo parenting as a teenager and throughout surgical training, her work as president of RACS, the challenges they are facing (bullying/harassment, inequity of surgical healthcare access for rural communities, environmental sustainability) and her work in plastic surgery. As always, if you have any feedback or queries, or if you would like to get in touch with the speaker, feel free to get in touch at doctornos@pm.me.Audio credit:Bliss by Luke Bergs https://soundcloud.com/bergscloudCreative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported — CC BY-SA 3.0Free Download / Stream: https://bit.ly/33DJFs9Music promoted by Audio Library https://youtu.be/e9aXhBQDT9YSupport the show
