    Rick Lindroth is a Vilas Distinguished Achievement and Sorenson Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he teaches about climate change. What makes Rick unique, aside from being a nemophilist (a person who loves or is fond of woods or forests), is that he is also a Christian. There are many labels people in the Christian faith have been given by the secular community, but rarely is the term Climate Scientist one of them. This week we unpack what it means to be a Climatologist in the Christian community, and we also do a temperature check (pun intended) on where we are at with regard to our current climate situation. Spoiler Alert: It's bad. To learn more about our guest, check out UW-Madison website: https://entomology.wisc.edu/directory/rick-lindroth/Guest Bio:Rick Lindroth is a Distinguished Professor of ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. During 2010-16, he also served as an Associate Dean for Research at UW-Madison. He is a Fulbright Fellow and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Much of his research has focused on the impacts of climate change on forest ecosystems.  But recently Rick was the subject of a Washington Post article that focused on the importance of faith in combatting hopelessness when dealing with climate change. WaPo article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2022/04/16/climate-despair-christian-scientist-finding-hope/ Support the show

    Scope Conditions Podcast
    Partisan Polarization in Israel, with Chagai Weiss

    Scope Conditions Podcast

    Today on Scope Conditions, we're talking about rising partisan animosity and what can be done about it.When we think about partisan polarization, we're often thinking about the United States – and about how the policy attitudes or ideological positions of Republicans and Democrats have moved further and further apart in recent decades. But partisan polarization is far from a uniquely American phenomenon. And it isn't just about policy attitudes.Increasingly, political scientists have been attending to the sociological and emotional features of partisan differentiation – to the ways partisanship can become a social identity, with party adherents developing warm feelings toward members of the same political camp – and deep hostility toward citizens on the opposing team. This is known as affective polarization. Moreover, recent studies have shown that affective polarization has been on the rise well beyond the U.S. – in places like Switzerland, France, Denmark and – as we learn from our guest today – in Israel. Chagai Weiss is a PhD candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a predoctoral fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, and co-founder of the Intergroup Relations Workshop. He's interested in how institutions and interpersonal interactions can shape conflict between social groups. While much of his work has focused on tensions between Jews and Palestinians, we're talking to Chagai today about the social divide between left and right voters – who often view each other with deep distrust and enmity. In an article just published in Comparative Political Studies, Chagai and coauthor Lotem Bassan-Nygate use a set of natural and survey experiments in Israel to understand the drivers of affective polarization and shed light on potential institutional solutions.In particular, they're interested in how elite behavior can exacerbate or mitigate social divisions within the electorate. Does the cut-and-thrust of electoral competition contribute to mutual dislike between the voters of opposing parties? And can elites' decisions to cooperate across party lines encourage their supporters to better get along? These are the questions Chagai and Lotem are interested in, and they're especially salient ones right now in Israel – which is currently being governed by an unlikely and unwieldy coalition of left, right, and center parties. But they're also tricky questions to answer. After all, when we observe elite competition or cooperation, they may be as much consequences of intergroup relations as they are drivers of those relations. We talk with Chagai about how he and Lotem gained leverage on these causal relationships by exploiting naturally occurring features of Israeli politics – including how they spotted a research design opportunity in the messy, indeterminate outcome of the fall 2019 Knesset elections.Chagai also talks to us about the limits to using surveys and survey experiments to learn about the effects of elite behavior and institutions. Because they couldn't manipulate institutions themselves, Chagai and Lotem manipulate information about elite behavior within institutions. But then it's not straightforward to map from this light-touch informational treatment to conclusions about the real-world effects of macro-level political arrangements. Ultimately, Chagai suggests that studying institutional effects requires a multi-pronged research program that combines carefully crafted experiments with cross-national comparisons.

    Guests: Dr. Jack Britt, Jack Britt Consulting; Dr. Jimena LaPorta, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Dr. Eric Ciappio, Balchem Corporation; Dr. Pete Hansen, University of Florida; Dr. Clay Zimmerman, Balchem CorporationToday's episode was filmed live and in-person from the Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference! This episode will focus on the symposium exploring in utero influences on transgenerational performance. Dr. Jack Britt started by saying when managing your dairy herd, if the cow is pregnant, you are managing the next three generations simultaneously. We need to be focused on the long term in how we care and feed the animal. (5:10) Dr. Pete Hansen mentioned breeding for heat stress is challenging because there is so much movement of cattle across the U.S. However, there is genetic regulation of resistance to heat stress and how cells respond to hyperthermia. Dr. Hansen believes dairy cattle breeders will start to put out heat tolerance genetic data. (15:15) Dr. Eric Ciappio has studied the role of choline in human pregnancy and its increase in infant cognition. While there is currently no direct data supporting choline fed in human pregnancies will also help the child's immune system as it does in cattle, you could someday make that assumption. (25:48) Dr. Clay Zimmerman shared a study that showed improved ADG through ten months of age when supplementing the cow with choline during pregnancy. Furthermore, the benefit was seen in utero, with less improvement but still some coming from colostrum. (38:19) Dr. Jimena LaPorta said that her research focused on understanding if you can reverse heat stress in utero. Heifers born to heat stress cows were cooled and provided the opposite environment, but they didn't recover. They responded to the treatment physiologically, but growth wasn't recovered. (44:28) Dr. Jack Britt wrapped up by emphasizing the importance of a single compound like a methyl group and how it could have a huge influence on the biology of an animal. You can look at big things, but we also need to look at the little things.

    Inflammation and Depression: From Evolutionary Understandings to the Discovery of New TreatmentsIn our first podcast with Dr. Andrew H. Miller, we explored links between inflammation and mental illness. But we left unanswered several key questions. Why as a species we should be so prone to inflammatory disorders? Why, from an evolutionary point of view, should inflammation so readily cause depression? In this podcast we cover these questions and more, exploring why humans have an inflammatory bias, why the link between inflammation and depression likely enhanced survival and reproduction across human evolution and why the absence of co-evolved bacteria, viruses and worms in the modern world is making both inflammation and depression worse. Finally, we turn to cutting-edge research underway in Dr. Miller's laboratory that seeks to harness the link between inflammation and depression to create better, and more personalized, treatments for mental illness. Andrew H. Miller, MD, is the William P. Timmie Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University. His discoveries have played a leading role in our current understanding of immune-brain interactions relevant to mental health.This episode is Part 2 in a two-part series.Featuring:Dr. Andrew Miller, William P.

    On this week's episode of DNA Today we're discussing the past, present, and future of the Human Genome Project and the Telomere to Telomere Consortium with Dr. Eric Green, director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).The Human Genome Project is an international scientific research project that began in 1990, with the goal of determining the base pairs that make up human DNA, and identifying, mapping, and sequencing all of the genes of the human genome; however, no one chromosome has yet been finished end to end, and hundreds of gaps persist across the genome. The Telomere to Telomere (T2T) Consortium is an open, community-based effort to generate the first complete assembly of a human genome, filling in these unresolved gaps. Our guest today is Dr. Eric Green, the director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). Throughout his career, Dr. Green has authored and co-authored over 375 scientific publications, a few of which we are chatting about today.As NHGRI director, Dr. Green leads the Institute's research programs and other initiatives. He has played an instrumental leadership role in developing many high-profile efforts relevant to genomics. Dr. Green received his B.S. degree in bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 1981, and his M.D. and Ph.D. degrees from Washington University in 1987. Coincidentally, 1987 was the same year that the word “genomics” was coined. Dr. Green's relationship with the Institute began long before his appointment as director. He served as the Institute's scientific director (2002 - 2009), chief of the NHGRI Genome Technology Branch (1996 - 2009) and founding director of the NIH Intramural Sequencing Center (1997 - 2009). Prior to that, he played an integral role in the Human Genome Project. Throughout his career, Dr. Green has authored and co-authored over 375 scientific publications. Dr. Green is a founding editor of the journal Genome Research (1995 - present) and a series editor of Genome Analysis: A Laboratory Manual (1994 - 1998), both published by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press. He is also co-editor of Annual Review of Genomics and Human Genetics (since 2005).On This Episode We Discuss:Dr. Green's involvement in the Human Genome Project (HGP)The first chromosome to be completely sequencedWhen the human genome sequence was completedThe Telomere to Telomere (T2T) ConsortiumWhat made the last 10% of the human genome difficult to sequenceHow many genomes were studied for the HGPHow the fully complete genome sequence impacts peopleThe NIH's All of Us Reacher ProgramLearn more about the Human Genome Project and what we talked about on this episode at genome.gov.

    A graduate student from the University of Wisconsin–Madison is pushing for the disaggregation of data in research to better understand how individuals from different ethnic subgroups are represented as research participants and as researchers. Kao Lee Yang began writing and discussing the topic after the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Gilliam Fellowship for Advanced Study rejected her application for not meeting their racial and ethnic underrepresentation criteria, despite often being the only Hmong American scientist in many research spaces. Yang joins the podcast to discuss her opinion piece for STAT News, the problems with using aggregated data, and how the push to study individual ethnic groups could improve Alzheimer's disease research. Guest: Kao Lee Yang, MPA/PhD candidate in the Neuroscience and Public Policy Program and Bendlin Laboratory, University of Wisconsin–Madison Episode Topics 6:12 Why is combining all Asian people into one category detrimental? What is improved when this population is broken down by specific heritages and ethnicities? 8:40 How did people respond to your initial article in STAT News? 9:30 Why do you think it's important to look at the individual ethnic groups within research? 11:17 How does the problem of aggregating data on Asian Americans impact the field of Alzheimer's disease research?

In his role, Venkat helps organizations build, grow and compete with data by making real-time analytics accessible to developers and data teams everywhere. Prior to founding Rockset in 2016, he was an Engineering Director for the Facebook infrastructure team that managed online data services for 1.5 billion users. These systems scaled 1000x during Venkat's eight years at Facebook, serving five billion queries per second at single-digit millisecond latency and five 9's of reliability. Venkat and his team also created and contributed to many noted data technologies and open-source projects, including Facebook's TAO distributed data store, RocksDB, Memcached, MySQL, MongoRocks, and others. Prior to Facebook, Venkat worked on tools to make the Oracle database easier to manage. He has a master's in computer science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and bachelor's in computer science from the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli.Links Referenced: Company website: https://rockset.com Company blog: https://rockset.com/blog TranscriptAnnouncer: Hello, and welcome to Screaming in the Cloud with your host, Chief Cloud Economist at The Duckbill Group, Corey Quinn. This weekly show features conversations with people doing interesting work in the world of cloud, thoughtful commentary on the state of the technical world, and ridiculous titles for which Corey refuses to apologize. This is Screaming in the Cloud.Corey: This episode is sponsored by our friends at Revelo. Revelo is the Spanish word of the day, and its spelled R-E-V-E-L-O. It means “I reveal.” Now, have you tried to hire an engineer lately? I assure you it is significantly harder than it sounds. One of the things that Revelo has recognized is something I've been talking about for a while, specifically that while talent is evenly distributed, opportunity is absolutely not. They're exposing a new talent pool to, basically, those of us without a presence in Latin America via their platform. It's the largest tech talent marketplace in Latin America with over a million engineers in their network, which includes—but isn't limited to—talent in Mexico, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Argentina. Now, not only do they wind up spreading all of their talent on English ability, as well as you know, their engineering skills, but they go significantly beyond that. Some of the folks on their platform are hands down the most talented engineers that I've ever spoken to. Let's also not forget that Latin America has high time zone overlap with what we have here in the United States, so you can hire full-time remote engineers who share most of the workday as your team. It's an end-to-end talent service, so you can find and hire engineers in Central and South America without having to worry about, frankly, the colossal pain of cross-border payroll and benefits and compliance because Revelo handles all of it. If you're hiring engineers, check out revelo.io/screaming to get 20% off your first three months. That's R-E-V-E-L-O dot I-O slash screaming.Corey: This episode is sponsored in part by LaunchDarkly. Take a look at what it takes to get your code into production. I'm going to just guess that it's awful because it's always awful. No one loves their deployment process. What if launching new features didn't require you to do a full-on code and possibly infrastructure deploy? What if you could test on a small subset of users and then roll it back immediately if results aren't what you expect? LaunchDarkly does exactly this. To learn more, visit launchdarkly.com and tell them Corey sent you, and watch for the wince.Corey: Welcome to Screaming in the Cloud. I'm Corey Quinn. Today's promoted guest episode is one of those questions I really like to ask because it can often come across as incredibly, well, direct, which is one of the things I love doing. In this case, the question that I am asking is, when you look around at the list of colossal blunders that people make in the course of careers in technology and the rest, it's one of the most common is, “Oh, yeah. I don't like the way that this thing works, so I'm going to build my own database.” That is the siren call to engineers, and it is often the prelude to horrifying disasters. Today, my guest is Venkat Venkataramani, co-founder and CEO at Rockset. Venkat, thank you for joining me.Venkat: Thanks for having me, Corey. It's a pleasure to be here.Corey: So, it is easy for me to sit here in my beautiful ivory tower that is crumbling down around me and use my favorite slash the best database imaginable, which is TXT records shoved into Route 53. Now, there are certainly better databases than that for most use cases. Almost anything really, to be honest with you, because that is a terrifying pattern; good joke, terrible practice. What is Rockset as we look at the broad landscape of things that store data?Venkat: Rockset is a real-time analytics platform built for the cloud. Let me break that down a little bit, right? I think it's a very good question when you say does the world really need another database? Don't we have enough already? SQL databases, NoSQL databases, warehouses, and lake houses now.So, if you really break it down, the first digital transformation that happened in the '80s was when people actually retired pen and paper records and started using a relational database to actually manage their business records and what have you instead of ledgers and books and what have you. And that was the first digital transformation. That was—and Oracle called the rows in a table ‘records' for a reason. They're called records to this date. And then, you know, 20 years later, when all businesses were doing system of record and transactions and transactional databases, then analytics was born, right?This was, like, the whole reason why I wanted to make better data-driven business decisions, and BI was born, warehouses and data lakes started becoming more and more mainstream. And there was really a second category of database management systems because the first category it was very good at to be a system of record, but not really good at complex analytics that businesses are asking to be able to guide their decisions. Fast-forward 20 years from then, the nature of applications are changing. The world is going from batch to real-time, your data never stops coming, advent of Apache Kafka and technologies like that, 5G, IoTs, data is coming from all sorts of nooks and corners within an enterprise, and now customers in enterprises are acquiring the data in real-time at a scale that the world has never seen before.Now, how do you get analytics out of that? And then if you look at the database market—entire market—there are still only two large categories of databases: OLTP databases for transaction processing, and warehouses and data lakes for batch analytics. Now suddenly, you need the speed of OLTP at the scale of batch, right, in terms of, like, complexity of compute, complexity of storage. So, that is really why we thought the data management space needs that third leg, and we call it real-time analytics platform or real-time analytics processing. And this is where the data never stops coming; the queries never stopped coming.You need the speed and the scale, and it's about time we innovate and solve the problem well because in 2015, 2016, when I was researching for this, every company that was looking to solve build applications that were real-time applications was building a custom Rube Goldberg machine of sorts. And it was insanely complex, it was insanely expensive. Fast-forward now, you can build a real-time application in a matter of hours with the simplicity of the cloud using Rockset.Corey: There's a lot to be said that the way we used to do things after the first transformation and we got into the world of batch processing, where—in the days of punch cards, which was a bit before my time and I believe yours as well—where they would drop them off and then the next day, or two days, they would come back later after the run, they would get the results only to figure out syntax error because you put the wrong card first or something like that. And it was maddening. In time, that got better, but still, nightly runs have become a thing to the point where even now, by default, if you wind up looking at the typical timing of a default Linux install, for example, you see that in the middle of the night is when a bunch of things will rotate when various cleanup jobs get done, et cetera, et cetera. And that seemed like a weird direction to go in. One of the most famous Google April Fools Day jokes was when they put out their white paper on MapReduce.And then Yahoo fell for it hook, line, and sinker, built out Hadoop, and we've been stuck with this idea of performing these big query jobs on top of existing giant piles of data, where ideally, you can measure it with a wall clock; in practice, you often measure the calendar in some cases. And as the world continues to evolve, being able to do streaming processing and understand in real-time what is going on, is unlocking different approaches, at least by all accounts. Do you have an example you can give me of a problem that real-time analytics solves for a customer? Because I can sit here and talk all day about how things might theoretically work, but I have to get out of my Route 53-based ivory tower over here, what are customers seeing?Venkat: That's a great question. And I want one hundred percent agree. I think Google did build MapReduce, and I think it's a very nice continuation of what happened there and what is happening in the world now. And built MapReduce and they quickly rea
