    Key & Peele – Das Negros

    August 9, 2019


    [doorbell rings] – [German accent]
    HEIL
    HITLER. MY NAME IS COLONEL
    HANS MULLER OF THE S.S. AS YOU KNOW, WE WERE
    COMBING THE AREA FOR JEWS. BUT IT HAS COME TO OUR ATTENTION
    THAT TWO NEGROES HAVE ESCAPED, AND ARE HIDING OUT
    IN THIS AREA AS WELL. YOU WOULDN’T HAPPEN TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS,
    NOW, WOULD YOU? – UH, NO.
    NO NEGROES HERE. MM-MM. – UH, NEGROES? EW.
    [chuckles] HELL NO. – AND, UM,
    WHAT ARE YOUR NAMES? – LEROY… HEIMER. LEROYHEIMER
    IS MY LAST NAME, AND MY FIRST NAME
    IS VERY GERMAN, AND THAT IS BECAUSE
    IT IS HEINRICH. SO, MY NAME
    IS HEINRICH LEROYHEIMER. – AND I AM BARON HELMUT… SCHNITZELNAZI. – WELL. ARE YOU GOING TO
    INVITE ME IN? – OF COURSE!
    – YEAH, COME ON IN! YEAH, YEAH, YEAH,
    ABSOLUTELY. – PLEASE, GENTLEMEN,
    SIT DOWN. NOW… AS YOU KNOW, THE NEGRO,
    NOT UNLIKE THE JEW, CAN BE A VERY
    TRICKY CREATURE. OH, THAT’S FUN. WE HAVE DEVELOPED
    MANY TESTS TO DETERMINE IF AN INDIVIDUAL
    IS, IN FACT, AN ACTUAL NEGRO. IT’S VERY SCIENTIFIC. LIKE WHEN WE THROW THE BEANS
    UP AGAINST THE HOMOSEXUALS TO SEE IF
    THE BEANS EXPLODE. – YEAH, UH… WHAT KIND OF TESTS? – IT’S INTERESTING
    THAT YOU WOULD ASK ME THAT. WOULD YOU MIND IF I… REMOVED YOUR HAT? SO THAT I CAN
    MEASURE YOUR HEAD. THE NEGRO HEAD,
    INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, ONLY COMES
    IN THE HALF SIZES. IT’S ONE OF THE MANY INTERESTING
    THINGS ABOUT THE NEGRO HEAD. HMM. EVERYTHING
    SEEMS IN ORDER. both: [exhale] – WELL,
    NO NEGRO HEADS HERE. – I’LL TELL YOU WHAT,
    THOUGH. IF A NEGRO HEAD
    CAME IN HERE, IT WOULD FIND ITSELF
    DETACHED FROM ITS NEGRO BODY. I’LL TELL YOU THAT,
    RIGHT HERE. [chuckles]
    AM I RIGHT? – THIS IS VERY,
    VERY GOOD. BUT THERE ARE SO MANY
    EXCEPTIONS TO THE RULE, WHICH IS WHY
    IT’S SO IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE A TEST
    WHICH IS FOOL-PROOF. – UH, M-M-M-MORE TESTS? – YOU KNOW,
    HUNTING THE NEGROES ALL DAY, YOU REALLY BUILD UP AN APPETITE,
    DO YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING? CAN I INTEREST YOU TWO IN SOME DELICIOUS BEETS? INTERESTING. THE NEGRO
    CANNOT RESIST THE BEET. IT IS DRAWN TO IT
    LIKE FLIES TOSCHEISSE.WELL, GENTLEMEN. IT APPEARS I HAVE
    WASTED YOUR TIME. I’LL BE ON MY WAY. – [exhales] – JUST ONE MORE THING. I’M CURIOUS AS TO
    HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT… THIS CAT TOY! JIGGLEDY, JIGGLEDY! NOTHING? WELL, THAT’S EMBARRASSING. I’M SORRY
    FOR BOTHERING YOU. YOU TWO ARE OBVIOUSLY
    NOT NEGROES. both: [laugh] – OF COURSE
    WE’RE NOT NEGROES. – THIS IS A NO-NEGRO ZONE. – THANK YOU, GENTLEMEN. – AIN’T NO THANG. – HERR LEROYHEIMER. OH, THAT’S NEW. BARON SCHNITZELNAZI. – WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?
    OH,HEILHITLER. – I’LL WAIT FOR YOU HERE.
    THERE WE GO. ALL RIGHT. BY THE WAY…
    [clears throat] ARE YOU, BY CHANCE, RELATED TO THE DUSSELDORF
    SCHNITZELNAZIS? – YES, I AM. – HOW’S YOUR AUNT FRIDA? – AUNT FRIDA? SHE… IS STILL… FAT? – I DON’T RECALL
    HER BEING FAT. BUT WHO LOOKS LIKE THEY DID
    IN COLLEGE ANYWAY, AM I RIGHT? – NOT ME. NOT ME. NOT ME.
    – NOT THIS ONE, EITHER. – ‘CAUSE I WAS A–
    YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT? – WELL,GUTEN TAG.
    – [laughs] ALL RIGHT. – OH, GUTENBERG! [engine starts] [car drives away] – WHEW.
    MAN, THAT WAS CLOSE. WHOO. WE GOTTA
    GET OUTTA HERE, MAN. WE– – HE LEFT THE CAT TOY, MAN!
    – UH-UH. – HE LEFT IT!
    – UH-UH. – [laughs] OH! OH! [giggles]

    What Are The Bags Next to the Railroad Tracks ?

    August 9, 2019


    so right now I am in Hialeah Florida
    that’s right next to Miami it’s actually to the west of Miami
    Florida and Florida man at any given railroad crossing you will find these
    bags coconuts on the train tracks so I’m gonna include a Google Maps link to this
    location where I’m at you guys can follow along are the bags that I’m
    referring to see you right there you got one two three four a couple coconuts
    five six seven and boom here is your answer what’s in there
    to the dead chicken now here’s another ticket why are there so many dead
    chickens that are given no no Posse in Hialeah Florida or South Florida simple
    answer this is of buidling Santeria Santeria is an afro-cuban religion where
    to put a spell on somebody you go to a voodoo doctor or a parallel and that you
    these people make a killing they pay like they literally make a trillion as
    you can see here but they literally make a killing and aside from that they make
    a lot of money because people pay thousands of dollars to put a spell on
    somebody or to put negative vibes they call it my Dale whole like an evil eye
    on somebody so yeah they paid thousands of dollars
    and then these people what they do is they sacrifice a chicken or a go to
    whatever saying corresponds to the desire that the person is asking for it
    and then when they do sacrifice chicken they put it in a bag and throw it
    trackside so the Train can whisk away the bad spiritual implement when I used
    to walk to the railroad the engineers that had this route didn’t want this
    route because they were weary of the bad spirits are gonna go on the train
    personally I just believe it’s not a mumbo-jumbo I’m not really into that
    kind of stuff I personally believe that there’s no scientific explanation for
    somebody cutting a chicken’s head off or killing a chicken or a goal and then
    that has an impact on my life but there’s some very weak minded people
    that do believe in that nonsense and then the coconut is also it has a
    similar it has a similar effect but what that is coconuts again so these coconuts
    we have a white pinstripe on kind of are used like let’s call it a spiritual
    cleansing of a house so like let’s say you have the back room of a house you
    just purchase the house we move into a house and you want to cleanse it of all
    the evil spirits what they do is they put the coconut in the back room of the
    house and they kick it through each and every
    corner of the house well first of all has to be a dried up coconut and they
    paint a white stripe on it I don’t know why the white stripe but yeah so they
    start off in the back room to kick it throughout the whole house and it’s
    supposed to take away with it all the bad vibes it’s supposed to help you with
    your mentality for your spouse to remain loyal to you for good health except
    cetera again I don’t believe in this nonsense but a lot of people do and
    there’s big money in it like some of these people live in mansions and have
    nice prized because people pay for this nonsense so this is just one side of the
    crossing right this is the west side of the crossing and you saw how many bags
    you counted here right let me take you to the east side of the crossing so you
    can see all the more oh we’re not that busy but gets person traffic okay so as
    I said I’m an East 10th Avenue there’s a really case so these are the
    FCC tracks that’s iris interlocking that’s all
    these tracks run east and west or whether you have the CSX tracks that run
    north and south so here you have more bugs one two three four get all this
    crap and this is incredible and then the smell here there’s another coconut
    there’s another dead chicken more coconuts here chickens bones people this
    could pose our health our health our risk because you know chickens have been
    known to have a B coli Salmonella so yeah that stuff gets into the ground and
    into the drinking water not to mention it’s like people walking by and they
    might touch it or come in contact with it school kids with their book bags and
    whatnot yeah it’s not a very pleasant thing this was actually taken to the
    Supreme Court in 1993 and the Supreme Court ruled in favor of call it the
    animal killings because it’s a religious freedom so these people are allowed to
    continue such barbaric practices which is a shame because I’m an animal lover I
    have dogs and I can’t imagine anybody killing an animal just because they
    think it’s going to better their life or worse than somebody else’s it’s it’s
    truly pathetic but what can you do it’s the world we live in so yeah guys I
    thank you for watching this video please subscribe or like tell me what
    you think down below of this barbaric practice take care the way

    113 Year Old Abandoned Railroad Tracks

    August 9, 2019


    hello ladies and gentlemen RailROL82 here, your railroad archaeologist so today this is our new
    discovery you will see the ties this rail was
    yanked out of place you see a couple more splice the collection you know if
    you guys are interested in buying them I’m selling them can we look for a date
    on the rail here all that water doesn’t let us see right you got some more ties off to the side this track is obviously functioning
    because see two tankers it it’s a little bit tough to see you look
    for a big deal on the way back here we go 1966 no 1906 Wow 1906 this
    track is a hundred and nine years old hundred and nine year olds abandon track
    Wow Wow so you want to buy some one hundred and
    nine year old spikes let me know in the comments and these are not hazmat I don’t see any
    placards on might be on the other side though 109 years old I wish I looked that good
    when I was under doing you see all these little cheese spotting
    up here mother nature’s gonna reclaim describe quick fast and in a hurry quick
    fast and in a hurry I wonder for anybody that ever lived in
    Chicago like God I’m gonna include the Google Maps Inc in the location so if
    you guys know when the last time was that a train users track please comment
    below I’d love to know or what it was used for see if there’s a building where
    this track would have gone through so I’m sure the building came after the
    track y’all dirty it is still clean sturdy darn perjury then so it starts to get really dense thank
    you and I think this is going to be the
    extent of my walking trying to give you a bird’s-eye view
    there but Peter higher than my bird’s-eye view finale no so much
    time before they remove this puppy or they might not remove it they might just
    that I mother made you reclaim it as it’s doing right now which I prefer
    because I’m not a big fan of rails-to-trails let me know how you feel
    about real skills in the comments but I particularly don’t like them I rather
    they just go gracefully let mother nature examine as a testament to what
    was what once was and then something else I want to show
    you this crossing here I know it’s alright this is the last customer on the
    line but one little curious thing is on it’s
    missing a cross book on one side so yeah – I know it’s wrong but it was
    really the great classic was already removed obviously and then this is where
    I began all right you guys need subscriber like
    notifications on the bottom so you guys can receive notifications that’s the one
    it when I upload my videos on Wednesdays and certainly mornings please show me
    some love in the comments in your light and take care thank you for coming along
    until next time buh-bye

    A new high-speed train from China to US?

    August 9, 2019


    SO MUCH. NOW WE BRING IN TOM FOREMAN, WHO LOOKED AT HOW THE HIGH SPEED RAIL LINE COULD ACTUALLY BE COMPLETED. IS IT POSSIBLE?>>LET’S LOOK AT THE BUILDING SITE FIRST, BECAUSE THIS IS WAY, WAY UP THERE RIGHT ON THE EDGE OF THE ARCTIC CIRCLE. THE BERING STRAIT SEPARATES NORTH AMERICA FROM RUSSIA. THE NEAREST POINT IS ABOUT 53 MILES WIDE. HOW DEEP IS THE WATER, DEEP COMPARED TO WHERE YOU PADDLE YOUR KAYAK. SO WHO WOULD HAVE TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT? WELL, POLITICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY, PROBABLY THE U.S. AND CHINA, THE CHUNNEL, IS WHAT THEY WOULD PATTERN THIS AFTER IN ALL LIKELIHOOD. LET’S LOOK AT HOW THIS WAS CONSTRUCTED. IN THE U.K. AND FRANCE, EVEN AT THE NARROWEST POINT, TWICE AS LONG AS THIS, THE WATER IS SHALLOW. THEY WOULD HAVE TO START TO BORE THROUGH AND THIS IS WHAT THEY WOULD AIM THROUGH. THREE TUNNELS, ONE WITH TRAINS GOING IN ONE DIRECTION, THE OTHER IN THE OTHER DIRECTION. AND IN THE MIDDLE THEY BUILT AN ACCESS TUNNEL FOR EMERGENCIES AND SERVICES AND ALL SORTS OF WAYS TO GET BACK AND FORTH. IT IS A BIG, BIG PROJECT. THEY HAVE TO PUSH HERE IN THE WATER AND THEY HAVE TO PUT IN SHIELDING AS THEY GO. JUST A STEP AT A TIME CLAIMING THIS AREA WITH A BIG METAL TUBE IN A SENSE TO BUILD ALL OF THIS. IT IS A BIG, BIG, JOB, NO QUESTION, ERIN. >>IT IS INCREDIBLE, AT LEAST FROM AN ENGINEERING STANDPOINT, WHICH MIGHT HAVE GIVEN A LOT OF PEOPLE PAUSE. IT IS POSSIBLE. BUT THEN HERE IS THE QUESTION, TOM, HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST AND HOW LONG WOULD IT TAKE?>>YEAH, WELL, IT IS POSSIBLE. ALTHOUGH I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE IN EACH OF THIS TUNNEL? YOU ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. IF YOU LOOK AT JUST THE COST OF THIS THING IF YOU BASED IT ROUGHLY ON THE CHUNNEL, MAYBE $35 BILLION IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL. THAT IS NOT UNBELIEVABLE, NOT CRUSHING. BUT YOU MAY ALSO TALK ABOUT 20 YEARS TO COMPLETE, MAYBE, BUT BOY, BIG, BIGGEST HERE, ERIN. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE THE IDEA FOR THE CHUNNEL CAME UP A GOOD WHILE BEFORE ANYBODY ACTUALLY STARTED DIGGING AS IN IT WAS FIRST SERIOUSLY PROPOSED BY NO NAPOLEAN. >>I DON’T THINK I

    RVMS Business Profile: The Bay State Model Railroad Museum

    August 9, 2019


    Hi Roslindale! My name is Alia Hamada
    Forrest, I’m the Director of Roslindale Village Main Street.
    Today we’re in our office and we’re about to interview Jeremy, who is from
    the Bay State Model Railroad Museum. Hi Jeremy! Hi Alia! It’s great to see you.
    My pleasure, thanks for having me. So you are a member, is that it or do you work at
    the Bay State Model Railroad Museum? It’s interesting. We’re members but we’re
    also volunteers, I guess you could say. Every person there is a member of the
    museum in terms of we pay membership dues and we assist with the running of
    the museum. So what’s the membership like? Like how many members, where are they
    from? So we kind of fluctuate between 50 and 80 members at any given time. Age
    range, our youngest member is a junior member and they’re 13 years old and our
    oldest member is in their 90’s and they come from all over. I think the the
    farthest reaches we have someone that comes from Barrington, Rhode Island, he’s
    actually our president right now. That’s far. Yeah, that’s a good hike. And then I would
    say 50-ish is about our normal number of how many people, but we very diverse
    group from a diverse region but we all come to Roslindale on Wednesday night so
    that we can enjoy our shared passion. What happens on Wednesday nights and
    what is the museum all about? It varies. I would say about half of the month, we are
    doing work on the layouts and by work I mean we are sprucing it up, we are
    ripping out and replacing, we are fixing things, we’re building, we’re cleaning
    things up, I’m cleaning up toilets for our tenants. So we do a lot of work and
    then at least one night a month is when we will
    do our our operations session which is when we try to run the railroads like
    railroads. Everybody has their order and a train that they run and they have to
    pick up cars at different spots and drop off cars at other spots and they have to
    sort of fiddle with each other and run it like it’s the Big Dance. And we do
    that; a lot of us will have dinner around 5:00 which is why we tell the public if
    they want to visit come around 6:00, because we’re usually back from dinner
    by then. But if they want to become a member of the museum, it is a social
    club, well we are called a museum but we are a social club. So we tell people come and
    spend time with us, share your experiences and what your passions are
    about model railroading and then roll up your sleeves and dig in
    and help out. We are in an envious position because we own our
    building, a lot of model railroad museums need as much
    revenue coming as possible but we’re in an enviable position where we don’t have
    to just search for people. People kind of find us, you know we’ve been in the
    magazines, we’ve been on Chronicle before, so when people come to us, they want to be a
    member and you know if they are a nice person and they bring something
    to the table, we’d love to have him in. When did the
    museum purchase the building and like what’s the history there? When did you
    find yourself in Roslindale? Not you personally but the museum. Around 1968, an
    amalgamation of other local Model Railroad clubs decided that it was
    time to kind of get together and make one cohesive Club. So we rented
    65 or 45 Poplar Street, right next to the Imperial Kitchen,
    we rented out that top shelf space from 1968 until Thanksgiving of 1978 when the
    landlord decided he was selling the business or selling his buildings and
    retiring, he was moving south. And we said ‘well wait a minute,
    have you seen what we built here, we can’t just leave’ and he said ‘well I
    didn’t think you had any interest in working with the new owners.’ And we said
    ‘well what are we gonna do?’ He said ‘well hey, I’ve got a building 758, 760 South Street. I
    will sell it to you for a low price and if you guys want to do that.’ And it
    came down to a vote and it was one person in the positive to buy the
    building. So in in December of 1978, we paid $32,000, we bought that building
    that we’re in now. Can you talk a little bit about how have you collaborated with
    other businesses in the past? So we always will collaborate with our tenants
    generally because we’re in it together. We try to be you know, hands-on landlords
    to help our tenants so when we do our open houses, we coordinate with them so
    that you know they can benefit from what we’re doing in the foot traffic
    that generates. And also we’ve worked with you guys in the past, if
    there’s a big event, we’ll all so open our doors. Most of our
    collaboration is just “can we add to what’s going on in the community.’ I mean
    we’re not in this for money, we just literally want to be able to cover
    our expenses and keep the trains running and the lights on. So most of our
    collaboration around the Square is just being available, being open and
    helping with foot traffic and just being a good neighbor in Roslindale. All right.
    Welcome to the Bay State Model Railroad Museum. We’re gonna start this
    little tour of our museum with the HO scale layout. HO scale is the most popular
    scale in model railroading. It accounts for about 60% of the share of model
    railroaders. This particular layout has been built since 1981 and it covers the
    area from West Virginia to Colorado through up into Sacramento, California.
    This area here is based off of the mountains of Colorado, the Rocky
    Mountains with the yellow aspen trees and if you turn around slightly, this is
    a slightly smaller layout. This is called N scale and N scale is becoming a very
    popular scale because of its size, it allows you to have a lot more action in
    small spaces. This layout is based off of the areas of Maine, New Hampshire and
    Vermont. This particular area is based off of Portland, Maine and it goes all
    the way up through the mountains of New Hampshire and into St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
    And as we walk further down here we get towards the Vermont side of the N scale
    layout which is right over here and then directly behind it would be the
    mountains of West Virginia for the HO scale layout. And some of the scenes depicted
    on this railroad would feature coal mines, would feature steel mills
    different wood logging centers, there’s a granite mine up in the corner and lots
    of large bridges. And then directly next to it, we get to our largest scale which
    is O scale. This layout features more of the Boston area, so this layout features
    part of the old Boston Albany lines that go through what’s now the Mass Turnpike
    and then it comes down to a scene that’s actually vaguely depicting Roslindale
    Village. This is the larger scale that we have here.. It is roughly about 1/48 scale and
    this is probably what a lot of our parents started with back in the dawn of
    the model railroading era. And as we come down on this side, one of the
    beauties of O scale is because of its size you can get very, very detailed so
    you can have a lot of scenes that have highly detailed structures and trees and
    people but because of its size you’re only able to do so much in most normal
    sized areas, so museums like this have a little bit of a benefit because we can
    have a lot more action going on. And as we come around we actually get to a
    slight mock up version of what Roslindale Square looked like in the 50s,
    with overhead wires which the trolleys actually got their electricity from and
    just a little bit of a understanding of our depiction of what Roslindale would
    have looked like back then. And then of course on the other side, N being the
    smallest scale, this area is based off of New Hampshire going up into the
    mountains. And again, one of the benefits of N scale is that you can have the
    trains be much more prototypical in length. By prototypical, I mean that they
    would be long as opposed to larger scales, it can be a little bit more
    difficult to have a long train so with N scale, you can have a much longer trains
    and the scenery can dominate the train rather than the train dominating the
    scenery. And in other various areas of the railroad museum, we honored some of
    our past members with trains dedicated to them once they’ve passed as well as
    there’s lots of photographs and magazine articles around the walls based on
    different articles we’ve been in. And then it brings you back over to the
    Sacramento California side of the HO layout, where one of the features would
    be Sacramento and the State Capitol. This area is under a little bit of
    construction right now, there are access hatches for people. And one of the most beautiful
    spots of the layout for a lot of us model railroaders is the engine terminal,
    which has a large round house with working current
    and engine facilities. And that is the Bay State Mall Railroad Museum. Thank you
    so much for watching this video Roslindale. If you’re interested in

    Arctic & Earth SIGNs – Modeling in Climate Change Research

    August 9, 2019


    [MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, I’m here with Nancy Fresco– Dr. Nancy Fresco– from
    the Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning. And we’re here to
    have a discussion about models and models in
    climate change research. We hear about models
    in the newspaper, and we know that it’s really
    important for climate change, to understand climate change. There’s a lot of
    misunderstanding, Nancy, in climate change communication
    about what models are. It makes it sound
    a little scary, like what it is, is it math? Definitely. Models are also really important
    in our national education standards right now–
    they are increasingly emphasized for
    students to learn. I invited you here today
    to demystify models in climate change research. What is a model, Nancy? Well, the thing is,
    models might sound scary, but we’re all using
    models already, every day, in our daily lives. Your daughter’s
    dinosaur, it’s a model. It’s a model of the real thing. What a model is, is
    a simplified version that includes parts or
    components of the real thing, of the real world
    version, but only the parts that are important
    or pertinent to what you want from it. With a model toy, you want
    certain aspects, but not all aspects of a dinosaur. Right, we want to
    know the shape– and it’s based on
    some observations that people made,
    data that people made. It’s not just out of nowhere. Right, it’s based on what
    we know about dinosaurs. Any model is a translation from
    the really complicated, messy real world that has tons more
    details than you actually need, to the simplified
    version that can help you learn more about the
    real world by being simpler. So maps are another
    kind of model, right? Here’s a map that we
    have that SNAP’s produced that shows the average
    temperatures across Alaska. Maps are another type of
    model that we see every day. Exactly, and we produce
    a lot of maps at SNAP. OK, so Nancy what
    you’re saying is– I’m going to draw this out
    in the style of my modeling professor, Dr. McGuire. He drew– OK, here’s the real
    world, this is our real world. It’s messy. It’s really messy. –lots of detail. –complicated real world. We’re trying to describe
    it through our model. That’s right, and the
    model is smaller– It’s nice and clean, simplified
    so we can understand it. –and tidy, exactly. And you’re saying
    that we’re making it using the things that matter
    in a particular situation– so the things that
    matter to a problem or– –to the questions that
    you have, or to the purpose that you have, or to what
    you want to find out. And of course, the most
    important first step is taking information, gathering
    information from the real world so that you can put
    it into your model. So you have this data– I’ve seen you try to tell
    the story of the three little bears using this data. [LAUGHTER] Exactly, and this is a great
    example that I like to use, because when we tell stories, we
    like to include a lot of detail to make the story
    more interesting. But as modelers,
    we do the opposite, and this exemplifies
    how scientists think about the world. When you’re talking
    about the three bears, you’d want to include all
    kinds of little details. But when you’re
    trying to turn that into a model of the story,
    what really matters? You have the three bears,
    you have the porridge, you have Goldilocks,
    and maybe you don’t need to know that
    Goldilocks’ hair is blond. You certainly don’t need to
    know details about the woodland and about her shoe size
    and about the time of day. You bring it down to
    the essential details. This is how scientists think. Yeah, OK. So back to our conceptual model. You figure out
    what things matter, and then you make
    observations of those things. And you’re collecting data,
    just like in your example of the story. Exactly. So here’s our data. Yeah, and people can get
    intimidated when you say data, because they immediately
    think numbers. But data– it’s
    just information. It’s what you see,
    what you observe, what you know about
    the real world– that includes basic information,
    it includes numbers, it includes everything
    about the real world. This is what you know. Nancy, I think a lot
    of people start– OK, data, I don’t
    understand that. And especially in our Arctic
    and our science community where we have volunteers and
    students– because they’re actually out collecting
    data– people can understand that,
    because they can do it. The more data we
    have, the better that this data can represent
    the real world, which is one of the reasons why we– as citizens collecting
    data and students collecting data– can really
    make an impact with our work that we’re doing. People get scared though, Nancy. How do you get from
    the data to the model? Yikes. OK, well, just as an example– say you had
    information that you’d collected from observations. Imagine you had a greenhouse,
    and you’re growing some plants in your greenhouse. You notice that as you
    change the temperature of your greenhouse,
    as it increases, you notice that the
    plants are growing more, they’re getting bigger. So you have more growth. The reason you feel that
    you know this is you have this information. You’ve taken measurements,
    and you see this pattern, and you say, wow, that
    looks like a pattern that I could learn
    something from. I’m imagining that there’s
    a relationship like this. And then in your model you
    say, well, maybe that’s what the relationship is. That’s a line, right? That’s just a simple line. So you turn that
    into an equation that you learn in
    high school, y equals the slope times x plus the
    intercept, y equals mx plus b. You got an equation, OK? You’re starting with this
    model, and you’re saying, OK, maybe my model is that growth
    increases with temperature. That’s my model. But do you see a problem with
    what I’ve done with this model? Oh boy, Nancy. Yeah– Temperature is increasing– If it gets super, super
    hot, if it’s 150 degrees, you’re not going to still
    get more growth– they’re going to die! And so this is when we get
    this really important step in modeling, which is when you
    take what the model is implying or telling you and you check
    back with the real world, you check back with your data. We call that validation– making sure your model is valid. When you do that
    step, you might find, OK, this relationship
    holds up to here, but then you get
    to this temperature and all the plants die. That is how you
    can keep your model honest through validation. That’s why you need to
    always be checking back with the real world
    with the data. Nancy, this really is
    another reason, in my view, of why students gathering
    data and citizens’ science projects, community
    monitoring, is so important. Because sometimes all
    scientists have is this data, and they can’t get out here to
    collect this data or this data. And they know that they
    need this information, and they don’t have it yet. They rely on finding people
    to collect it for them. What you’re doing with your
    students and in your community is so important for helping
    us understand climate change. Nancy, what are some
    of the uses that you at the Scenarios Network for
    Arctic and Alaska planning? What are you using models
    from, and how do you make them useful to
    communities to solve problems? Well, really the first step
    in making any model useful as a problem-solving tool
    is to talk to the people that you’re working with,
    to ask them questions, say, what do you care about? What matters to you? Because with climate change
    you might hear someone saying, well, the average
    July temperatures are going to become three
    degrees warmer in the next 20 years. That might be a model
    that is correct, but it’s not necessarily
    a model that’s useful. That might not be what
    people want to know. But if you say the
    amount of Arctic sea ice over time has decreased
    by this amount– and we see a very obvious
    trend despite some variation– and then we say, does
    this matter to you in terms of shipping,
    in terms of ability to get out subsistence
    hunting, in terms of safety on the
    sea ice for people in a particular community? Those might be the questions
    people want answered. So figuring out what
    matters to people and how the data links to
    that matters tremendously, because a big part of
    modeling is to avoid including what you don’t need. Can you give us an
    example of that? Oh, sure. A type of model that
    we’re all familiar with and we all use all the time
    without thinking about the fact that it’s a model is a map. You need to get your
    friend Stella’s house and she’s told you,
    well, go along Park Lane and turn right on Hubert Street. You might look on Google Maps. Really, this is the
    information you need. It’s simple. It’s not the real
    world– the real world is way more complicated. And adding more to this
    model would not necessarily help this model. If you knew that over
    here there are radio towers, and over here are the
    flight paths of jet airplanes, and here are the railroad
    tracks that are actually not near her house– this does not help you. In fact, this makes
    your model worse. There’s often this
    feeling that a model should be as detailed,
    complicated– that if you have information,
    you should throw it into your model. We use models. Maps are a good example. You want to have the information
    that you need that’s pertinent, that helps you make decisions,
    that helps you make projections about the future. You don’t want the
    whole kitchen sink. It seems like when you’re
    thinking about models, and especially communicating
    what models mean in climate change research,
    you want to be sure that you know what
    models can do, but also what they
    can’t do, right? Yes, exactly. And overstating
    or misrepresenting what a model can do– it doesn’t help anyone. It doesn’t help
    you as a scientist, and it doesn’t help the public. But also, there can be a model
    that is useful for one task and not for another. So for example, the Nenana
    Ice Classic, something we’re all familiar with– people
    put money in the betting pool, so it matters to them. There’s great data for over 100
    years on exactly when the ice went out on the Nenana River. As you can see, it’s
    really variable over time. Having a model of that might
    not help you make $100,000, it might not help you
    place your exact bet, but you can see that
    there’s a very obvious trend toward the ice
    going out earlier. And if you look at that data
    compared to the date when the leaves come out on the
    trees– our greenup date– then you say, OK, this is a
    model that you could actually use for prediction. So depending on what you
    want to be able to predict, how you want to be
    able to predict it, knowing that one way or
    another is a tremendous help. Nancy, this is helping us
    not be as scared of models. So just to refresh, we know
    that the real world is messy and that we use models
    in climate change to help us understand the
    world, and help us plan, right? Yeah. And that we need data, which
    is why your students’ data is so important and valuable–
    is that to help represent this real world
    we need that data. We know that you– as a modeler, as
    your profession– you are using that data to help
    explain patterns and help us predict and make sense of it. But you’re also going
    back to the data always, to make
    sure that it’s still reflecting the real world. Always validating, yeah. We know that models– the math involved– you can
    understand it as a person if you know how to make a graph. So teaching those
    skills to your student is super important for
    understanding modeling. And keep it simple. Yep, keep it simple. And then finally, we know that
    models are not crystal balls. They’re good for some things–
    for the intended purposes– and not for others. And finally, Nancy,
    models are not scary. Rawr! [LAUGHTER]

    Simplehuman and Russian Toilette: Citation Needed 1×04

    August 9, 2019


    Today’s show is sponsored by new Findus Toilet Wallets! We’re not sure what they are either. We sell ’em, you smell ’em! You just open it:
    [Mechanical door noise] This is the Technical Difficulties.
    We are playing Citation Needed. I have an almost-randomly selected article from everybody’s favourite source of knowledge, Wikipedia, in front of me, and these folks cannot see it. Every fact that they get right is a point and a ding [DING], and there is a prize for particularly good answers which is… And your topic today is: ‘simplehuman’. [Laughter] Hello! Hi! Pass a bigger shovel, we’re going to be digging deep today. I use the cardinal directions of ‘up’, ‘down’, ‘left’ and ‘right’. I think I qualify. Is it like the whole Simple English thing, or something? Oh, like a simpler version of the language? Yeah, is it sort of an overall thing to try and achieve that in humanity or something, or…? No. Is it an album? Ooh, no it’s not, but that’s a nice prog rock album title there. I was going to say, ‘Simple Human’ is a… That is pretty much Granddaddy. Yeah, I thought it would be something like that. Okay… Let’s get the obvious — is it an LP, is it a film, or something like that? Is it media? Is it a medium? It’s not media at all. Okay. Is it some kind of eco-revolution? Ooo, not really, no. Oh sure, like a Good Life thing. A notion about how mankind used to exist… pre-evolutionary or something like that? You’re all thinking really quite big-picture here, and not at all commercial. — Commercial?
    — Commercial. Oh, do they make bog roll? Oh, you know what, you’re getting a point. [DING] What! It’s not that close… They make rubbish bins, but that’s close enough out of the blue that I’m going to… That’s like standing in a pub with a dart in your hand, spinning around three times with your eyes closed, doing THAT and getting a bulls-eye! That’s how I play darts. And that’s why you’re banned! Oh, actually yeah, I’ve seen Matt play darts. Flailing! They go through to the other side and into the wall. Actually, to be fair, it’s more like standing in a pub with a dart in your hand, a pint in the other hand, throwing at the dartboard
    and knocking everything down in the skittle alley. Yes. Yes. So simplehuman make bins. They do. They are considered, and I quote here, ‘among the most high-end [trash] cans on the market today’. Can you tell me why? Why are they some of the best bins? They wear a cravat. Are they antibacterial or er, micro… biobial… — Micro-biober…
    — Miroberber… There were some words there, Matt. And the answer: No. Higher —
    Are they made of gold? Or diamonds? Or something otherwise desirable? I’ll give you a point for diamonds, because it’s… Carbon! …durability. [DING] Durability? They last a long time. It’s one of the reasons. Huerrr… I don’t know what that noise meant. I can’t count the number of times I’ve broken my bins. No, you literally can’t, because it’s zero. — Yes. [Laughs]
    — Yeah. Yes. I’ve never broken a wheelie bin or anything in my life. I mean, I’ve ridden in one, and I’ve never broken it. Are we talking dumpster-styley things, though, — Yeah, actually…
    — that get serious industrial… No, we’re talking much… — Kitchen.
    — Yeah, kitchen bins. An unbreakable kitchen bin? Do they do the solar compacting thing? Are they odour-proof? Odour-suppressant? Do they play a nice tune when you put something in them? [‘Shave and a haircut’ melody] Do they make the tea? I seem to recall a giveaway… I feel like it was some soft drink or other, that gave you a little thing that you attached to your bin that made a noise every time you opened it. What was the noise though? All right, you come home late from the pub one night… If you’re in my situation — you’re a married man, you’ve snuck back in, not wanting to wake the wife up, you’ve taken your shoes off, you’ve done the lot… You’ve sneakily eaten the kebab that you said you weren’t going to have, you tiptoe over to the bin… [Comedy music riff] At this point, it’s good you’ve taken your shoes off, because you’re sleeping on the couch tonight. Yeah. ‘Where’ve you been?!’
    That kind of thing. Great. Thanks for making a noisy bin-thing. You’re right about technologically advanced bins here, but it’s one thing in particular that it does. Techno-Bins! No, that’s just bins that dance to repetitive music. [Dance beat] This is not a product placement, this is just what ‘Random Article’ pulled up for me. Does it sift and sort and do your recycling for you? No, it’s much less advanced than that. Does it play ‘Free Bird’? Does it let you put rubbish in it? — No.
    — Yes. Easily. What would make that more — Front flap! How more easy than an open-mouthed… It’s not open-mouthed. It’s got an automatic lid. — Bingo! Point to you. [DING]
    — Ahh. It has an automatic sensor-activated lid. — I think I’ve seen adverts for that now.
    — Yup. — What…
    — Like, late night, on a silly channel that no one ever watches anyway. So what, you wave at it? Play a trumpet? Call it? There is just no hope left for humanity, is there really? No, not really. This is basically, you wave your hand toward the bin and it opens for you. Until of course it breaks down, at which point it just becomes… But they don’t break! It says. What happens when the bin turns against you and starts throwing banana peels in your face? …which will happen! When the monkeys take over the world, anyway. What else have they added sensors to? Because there’s other kitchen and bathroom stuff they’ve added sensors to. Oh. Knives. I’ve seen sensors in knives. [Laughter]
    Whoa, whoa — what?! Forks! Sorry, no… It wasn’t a knife, it was a fork.
    [Laughter] Oh God. Curry tonight’s going to be entertaining, isn’t it. [Caveman grunts] What would you do to a fork? What possible… When you’re cooking a steak. — Ah…
    — It’s got a temperature probe on it, and it tells you when it’s done. ‘Bring the temperature probe…’ So surely you just need a knife and a temperature probe. Why, when you could have it in a fork that you can then use to eat it? Or something, I don’t know. But it was a thing you stuck in a steak. There was another… a pan!
    They put a sensor in a pan as well. — What for?
    — Steak, again! — Okay.
    — I’ve seen it on a shopping channel. Of a pan that will tell you of what manner your steak will be done… — …at the current temperature of pan.
    — Oh, okay. My big issue with this is that Brannan watches shopping channels. Of course I watch shopping channels! He’s a married man. What else has he to do? Occasionally, we go down the shopping channels and go, ‘Nah… Nah… Nah… Bra? Sorry, luv, no bras…’ ‘Trousers that make your arse look better… that one.’ Saw one for pasta, as well. We’re actually looking in the bathroom for this. — Scales.
    — Toilet. I like the idea that they put an insensitive in a scale. [Laughter] ‘Step off, lardo. I can’t take this any more.’ That’s the old gag, though, isn’t it? You step on the scale, it says ‘One at a time, please.’ ‘No coach parties.’ Bog roll! GARY: That’s a good place! No, it’s not, actually… It’s very obvious when you’ve run out of bog roll. But that answer’s already got me points once before, so I thought I’d try it again.
    [Laughter] Not this time. It’s not absurd, though. Not in a private bathroom, but in, like works ones, — because you’ve got the automatic tap sensors…
    — Yes. I’ve seen ones for, erm… You’re getting close with automatic tap sensors, by the way. Yeah. And there’s the things where you give it that number, and it gives you a couple of sheets to dry your hands on, so bog roll’s just the next one on that stage. Yeah, but people want different amounts, don’t they. You don’t just want one or two sheets. Yeah, but you just go…
    Toilets? Everything in the bathroom apart from the one… — You’ve got the water, the towels…
    — Toilets! Showers! — Soap.
    — Bingo! Point. [DING] Oh yeah. [Mechanical noise] Just going back to your bog roll thing… Do you want to be sat in a work setting, in a cubicle, and if you have to do this or something to get the toilet roll to come out… It’d be great for the Queen. [Laughter]
    Yes. She’d never stop it. She’d just be surrounded by it. [Laughter]
    She’d be like an… Slowly — just this hand, as the paper rises…! It’s actually the train on her wedding dress. It’s winding around her hand… ‘Nooo!’ She looks like a naughty Andrex puppy when they find her. But the other thing is, a toilet roll dispenser telling you — like you say, in a public one — that there’s not much left… — ‘Go careful now!’
    [Laughter] ‘If it was a curry, choose another stall.’ Isn’t that what toilet attendants used to probably do? Can you imagine? ‘Not that one! She’s out. Use Number 1.’ Can you tell me anywhere they might be sold? We’re looking for American retail stores… Walmart! Well, possibly, but we’re looking for some more… Bed Bath & Beyond. — Point!
    — Ohh! — Damn.
    — [DING] Spot on. I always did wonder what ‘Beyond’ was. Electric bins! [Laughter] Electric speaky clever bins, and toilet roll warning devices. ‘Danger: Bog Roll.’ I want Danger Bog Roll. ‘Each sheet a new danger!’ — Cactus.
    — ‘This one is covered in crocodiles!’ Croc…! [Gnashing sounds] ‘There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with this one… ‘Poison ivy!’ But why would I? She’s lovely. [Groan] No, just you’ve got Russian Roulette toilet paper. One’s chili. Capsaicin, yeah. One sheet out of every six has poison ivy or capsaicin on it. Ohh, yes! One out of six: spearmint. Tingly, but not necessarily wrong! Mint sauce, kind of… TCP. You’d smell that one from a mile off. Witch hazel. Tea tree! That would spice up toilet breaks, wouldn’t it though? Russian Toilette. Yes! Whoa, whoa, whoa! ‘Wheel of Fart-une’. *Weal* of Fart-une. Yes. I’ve got in my head, Nicky Campbell… Nicky Campbell! Or Pat Sajak, for you Americans out there, spinning the wheel, and you wonder what it’ll land on. ‘I’m sorry, that’s porcupine.’ ‘You’ve got… aloe vera.’ — ‘Allo, Vera.’
    — ‘Alright, Gene.’ Ayyy! Does anyone want to tell me
    what Bed Bath & Beyond used to be called? Because the first one opened in 1971…
    it had a different name. Is it something really prosaic, like Harrison’s Home Supplies? Sleep Health Privy & Whatever. I’d say it’s about one-third more prosaic. Bed & Bath. Correct! [DING] ‘Wait, we’re selling more than just beds and baths. ‘What do we call it?’ ‘Bed, Bath… “Beyond” will probably do. ‘Everybody? Shall we knock off early?’ ‘Bed, Bath and… a third item.’ ‘Come in to see what it is!’ ‘I need some pillows, a new plug for the bath
    and some Tarot cards.’ That was the second version of the name. It was just hanging off the edge of the store. Bed Bath & Tarot Cards? Bed Bath Pillows Some Other Things & Tarot Cards. While we’re on Bed Bath & Beyond, by the way… since we seem to be going down this wiki-hole… They’ve bought a lot of companies. Can you tell me what the name of the company that sold Christmas trees was that they bought about 2003? Green Pricks! What? Chris Masterson’s Christmas Trees. You’re all being far too serious here. The Christmas Tree Shop. — Point! [DING]
    — F*** off! I was so close! Ha! ‘What do you sell?’
    ‘Cars.’ All right. There is one last thing that simplehuman sell, which is a sensor mirror. Can you tell me what it does? Tells you you’re ugly? ‘Mirror, mirror on the wall…’ ‘How do I look today?’ Northerner mirror:
    ‘F***in’ dreadful.’ Is it a sensorless mirror? Ha! A senseless mirror. ‘Idiot!’ A really insensitive — ‘Why did you leave the house?!’ A sensor mirror? I mean, what, does it… tell you you’ve brushed your teeth, or give you gestures… I’ve got to be honest, all the sensors so far are just if something is close to it. It’s not much of a sensor. Does it turn the lights on? Point. [DING] It turns the lights on if you’re close to the mirror. How do you know you’re close to the mirror if the lights aren’t on? It doesn’t turn the room lights on, it turns the mirror… — Sensor mirror: Boomf!
    — ‘Oh f***!’ And you hammer the light switch,
    which is just set a bit behind it. ‘I’ve sensed the mirror!’ ‘Why did I install this s****y mirror?’ ‘I’ve got to turn the lights off again now.’
    Doof! ‘Mirror, mirror, on the wa — ohhh!’ ‘Oh, you bastard!’ Same with the oven! [Sizzling noise]
    ‘Aaargh!’ At the end of that… It’s the most dangerous house going. — The hot tap on the bath.
    — Turn the telly on? Doonk! [Groans] ‘Honey? Will you switch on the light in the living room?’ I don’t want to use the waste disposal. ‘I need to fry some bacon. Can you turn on the gas?’ Whoomph! At the end of that, congratulations Matt! — F***!
    — What?! You did score all the genuine points though. He did actually get the answers, yeah, you’re right. You win a gift voucher to everyone’s favourite
    Communist high street shop, which is Marx & Spencer, so do enjoy that. Until then, that’s been Matt Gray… That’s been Gary Brannan… That’s been Chris Joel. I’ve been Tom Scott.

    Railroad Crossing Workout

    August 9, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here, today I’m gonna be incorporating two of my favorite things
    in this video I’m gonna incorporate railroad crossing equipment and
    weightlifting so for purposes of this video I’m going to be using a crossing
    equipment but if you don’t have crossing equipment you can get dumbbells or
    barbells and it will suffice so we’re gonna be doing two things we’re
    gonna be doing hammers and we’re going to be doing 21s and we’re gonna be
    doing hammers with this safe tran crossing light okay so hammers instead
    of getting it I’m gonna step back so you can see instead of grabbing it like this
    as you normally would you would grab it like this straight so when you do that you work the top
    part of the forearm and the peak of the bicep do ten reps one down to a 15
    degree angle hold it back up two three four five six seven eight nine ten
    yeah man they leave you nice and vascular afterwards okay then you do the
    same thing with the other side so you’re gonna grab it and going to do hammers 1, 15 degrees, 2 hold to 15 degrees three for
    five six seven oh cheese seven eight 9 10 okay that’s that part of it then you’re
    gonna do four sets of ten reps then you’re gonna have your forms looking
    like that. After that you gonna do twenty one twenty one is I’ll explain it to you You’re going to do You’re going to do 7 from the halfway point down like from here to here seven one then seven from the halfway point up and then seven all the way around okay and if you want to hit the top part
    of the forearm again all you gotta do is grab it like this
    same difference 1 wait 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 That is going to leave your bicep nice! forearms too! People are going to think you have pineapples do that a few times alright you guys So that’s your 21 and your hammers for today I’m gonna try
    to work on more these videos so you guys can all can get in shape with me and
    we’re gonna get in shape together the RailROL82 workout please
    subscribe or like thank you for viewing over and out
