296: Why we play, 8/16/2019

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 58:59

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small You know what they say — all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. And science seems to confirm that statement, with findings that play is as important for adults’ emotional health as it is for children’s development. But what exactly counts as play? Who engages in it — and why is it so important? On this episode, we explore some of those questions. We’ll hear stories about rediscovering play as an adult, which animals play and why, and meet a reverend in her 70s who still jumps double dutch.

2019-08-16 Superpower: How Renewables are Transforming America’s Energy Future

From Climate One | Part of the Climate One series | 58:57



Host: Greg Dalton

Russell Gold, Reporter, the Wall Street Journal; Author, Superpower: One Man's Quest to Transform American Energy (Simon & Schuster, 2019)
Jigar Shah, Founder, SunEdison; Co-Host, The Energy Gang podcast
Lynn Doan, Team Leader, Power and Gas-Americas, Bloomberg News

This program was recorded in front of a live audience at The Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco on August 5, 2019.

What’s new in renewable energy?

In April, 23 percent of America’s electricity came from renewables, surpassing coal for the first time. Ten states, and Puerto Rico and Washington DC, have policies in place to run on 100 percent clean power in coming decades.

Achieving that presents a host of challenges, from updating an aging electricity grid to financing energy innovation to figuring out how to transport and store the renewable power.


Fortunately, says author Russell Gold, we have the talent to take those challenges on.

“There's a lot of creativity in the space right now,” says Gold.  “There's creativity on reducing demand, there's creativity in how we aggregate solar… and frankly, given what's going on with the climate, we sort of need to be trying them all -- simultaneously.”

And if we succeed, we stand to gain a lot more than just cleaner air, a stable planet and lower electricity bills.  We also open the door to a wealth of employment opportunities. Bloomberg’s Lynn Doan says this is the perfect time to diversify a sector that has been traditionally dominated by white males – what she calls the industry’s “dirty little secret.”

“The renewable energy industry is creating more jobs than any other industry in the United States,” says Doan.  “The solar technician and wind technician jobs -- those are the two fastest-growing professions in the U.S. today.

“So if women and minorities are missing out on this renewable energy industry opportunity, then they’re being left out of the biggest job boom that America has to offer today.”

Something else to look forward to? The end of the gas-guzzler. Jigar Shah, co-host of The Energy Gang podcast, says drivers won’t miss having to stop to fill up their tank. “It’s not like an enjoyable experience; it’s a necessary evil for what they need for mobility,” he tells the audience.  “And I think people are starting to realize now that with these 200-plus mile range electric vehicles, you really can go across the country.”

Frozen Rope (#1478)

From A Way with Words | Part of the A Way with Words series | 54:00

Frozenrope_small Ducks on the pond, frozen rope, tumblebug, and high cheese are baseball slang. Ducks on the pond means "runners on base," frozen rope is "a line drive," a tumblebug is "a fielder who makes a catch and adds theatrical flair," and high cheese is "a fastball high in the strike zone." The definitive reference book on baseball slang is The Dickson Baseball Dictionary.

A San Antonio, Texas, middle-schooler has observed that when she and her friends are texting, they use different spellings to indicate agreement. Her friend types OK, but the caller prefers okay. Either is correct. For an engaging, thorough history of the word, however you spell it, check out Allan Metcalf's OK: The Improbable Story of America's Greatest Word.

In baseball, a yakker is a curveball with a big break. The term apparently derives from yawker, a kind of bird that has  the same kind of swooping flight.

A New York City listener enjoys the music played between segments of our show, particularly the reggae tunes, and wonders about the origin of the word reggae. This musical form was popularized by the Jamaican band Toots and the Mayfield, and may be related to the Jamaican patois term streggae, meaning "a loose woman." A great resource for learning about the English spoken in Jamaica is the Dictionary of Jamaican English.

In baseball, to hang a snowman is "to score eight runs in one inning," inspired by the shape of the numeral 8.

Quiz Guy John Chaneski has a "Takeoff" quiz, in which the letter C is removed from a word to yield a rhyming two-word phrase. For example, if someone wanted to find out how old an animal enclosure is, what would they be trying to find?

A woman in Indianapolis, Indiana, says her father regularly used the phrase out in the giggleweeds, meaning "out in the middle of nowhere" or "off the beaten path." Giggleweed is slang for both marijuana and jimson weed, a highly dangerous, hallucinogenic plant, Datura, which resembles the morning glory.

A Montreal, Canada, caller says that when he does something annoying, his wife will say simply, Can you not? He wonders if that construction is grammatically correct.

The plant jimson weed has dangerous hallucinogenic effects. The weed takes its name from Jamestown, Virginia. In 1676, settlers there ingested the weed, and its poisonous effects were vividly described a few years later in a volume called The History and Present State of Virginia.

A man who works as a caregiver in Calais, Vermont, says one of his elderly clients insists on saying banana bag to mean "fanny pack." Banana bag is a term used by horseback riders to refer to a pouch that fits under a saddle.

A government official in New Zealand has devised a new Maori-based glossary to replace some of the English words used by the government for talking about mental health, disability, and addiction. For example, he proposes replacing the word autism with takiwatanga, which translates as "in his or her own time or space."

How did the acronyms POTUS, FLOTUS, and SCOTUS for "President of the United States," "First Lady of the United States," and "Supreme Court of the United States" come about?

Some of us can remember when typing an exclamation mark required hitting four different keys: the shift key, the apostrophe, the backspace, and the period!

Goat rope, goat roping, and goat rodeo describe a "messy, disorganized situation." Grant wrote about these terms in his book The Official Dictionary of Unofficial English.

Kid cheater and child cheater are synonyms for "spatula," because when you're baking a cake, a spatula is so efficient for removing the remnants of a sweet mixture from a bowl that there's little left for a kid to lick off.

A Indianapolis, Indiana, woman remembers that her Kentucky-born grandfather used to say that a lazy person wasn't very work-brickle. The dialectal term work-brickle is a variant of work-brittle, which, in the late 19th century, described someone who was "industrious." Over time, work-brittle also came to mean "lazy," perhaps because of associating the word brittle with the idea of being "delicate" or "fragile." The use of work-brittle in the positive sense of being "energetic and eager to work" is especially common in Indiana.

This episode is hosted by Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett, and produced by Stefanie Levine.

OHR074: OHR Presents: Darol Anger & Mike Marshall, 8/19/2019

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59


Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, oldtime, bluegrass, and psychograss pioneers Darol Anger & Mike Marshall recorded live at the Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with these legendary instrumentalists.  Mark Jones offers an archival recording of Ozark originals Bob & Kay Blair performing the traditional song “Red Green.”

Fiddler, composer, producer and educator,  Darol Anger is at home in a number of musical genres, some of which he helped to invent.  Exceptional among modern fiddlers for his versatility and depth, Anger has helped drive the evolution of the contemporary string band through his involvement with numerous pathbreaking ensembles such as his Republic Of Strings, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the David Grisman Quintet, Montreux, his Duo with Mike Marshall, and others.  He has performed and taught all over the world with musicians such as Dr. Billy Taylor, Bela Fleck, Bill Evans, Edgar Meyer, Bill Frisell, David Grisman, Tony Rice, Tim O’Brien, The Anonymous 4, Marin Alsop and the Cabrillo Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, Mark O’Connor, and Stephane Grappelli.  Today Darol can be heard on NPR’s “Car Talk” theme every week, along with Earl Scruggs, David Grisman and Tony Rice. He was also the violinist on the phenomenally popular Sim City computer games.  In addition to performing all over the world, he has recorded and produced scores of important recordings since 1977, is a MacDowell and UCross Fellow, and has received numerous composers’ residencies and grants. He has been a featured soloist on dozens of recordings and motion picture soundtracks.  He is an Associate Professor at the Berklee School of music.  He recently began an ambitious online Fiddle School at ArtistWorks.com.

Mike Marshall made his Carnegie Hall debut at the age of 20 with jazz violin legend Stephane Grappelli as a member of the David Grisman Quartet. In 1985 he would perform in that famed hall with his own classical ensemble The Modern Mandolin Quartet in 1985.  Mike has been at the forefront of New Acoustic music for over 40 years having been the founding member of many groups including the Montreux Band, Psychograss, Choro Famoso and The Anger Marshall Band.  He is indeed a living compendium of musical styles and has the ability to seamlessly blend his American roots background with a deep understanding of European classical music, Brazilian choro and other world music.  Mike is a fluid Jazz improviser and a master on mandolin, guitar, mandocello and violin.  Between 1999 and 2003 Mike collaborated with Joshua Bell, Edgar Meyer, Bela Fleck and Sam Bush on two separate projects.  These groups toured the U.S.A. extensively and performed at the Aspen Music Festival, San Francisco Performances and Chamber Music at Lincoln Center, NY.  Both ensembles were nominated for Grammy Awards for their Sony Classical releases.  In 2014 Mike was nominated for his third Grammy Award for his recording with the Turtle Island Quartet.  Currently Mike is touring with German mandolin virtuoso Caterina Lichtenberg.  The two have released two cds on the Adventure Music label and have performed at the Carmel Bach Festival, The Savannah Music Festival, the Bach Haus Liepzig, Germany and the Rockygrass Bluegrass Festival in Colorado and have been soloists with the New Century Orchestra under Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, and Orchester l’arte del mondo from Cologne, Germany.  Mike’s past duet projects have included tours and Cds with mandolinists Chris Thile, violinist Darol Anger, bassist Edgar Meyer, Brazilian Mandolinist Hamilton de Holanda and pianists Jovino Santos Neto and Andy Narell. His recordings can be found on the Windham Hill, Sony Classical, Rounder, Sugar Hill and Compass labels as well his own Adventure Music label.  As a music educator Mike is committed to passing on his knowledge through a variety of channels. He currently directs the Mike Marshall School of Mandolin through the ArtistWorks on-line educational company where he is teaching hundreds of mandolinists from around the world. He has published six books on mandolin technique and has produced three video instruction DVDs.  Mike splits his time currently between his home in San Francisco, CA and Wuppertal, Germany where his wife, Caterina Lichtenberg holds the position of mandolin professor at the Cologne Music  Conservatory.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers an archival recording of Ozark originals Bob & Kay Blair performing the traditional song “Red Green,” from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

The American healthcare system can be tough to navigate. But it’s even more challenging when you’ve just arrived in the United States from a war-torn country. That’s why Dr. Fern Hauck and Farah Ibrahim both work to connect refugees and asylum seekers with high-quality healthcare, no matter what language they speak or what trauma they’ve suffered. Al Fuertes is also dedicated to improving outcomes for refugees and displaced peoples. He draws on his personal experience growing up under martial law to inform his transformative approach to healing. 


Are We Alone?

From Philosophy Talk | Part of the Philosophy Talk series | 53:59

If there is intelligent life beyond Earth, how would that change life ON Earth?


News that life might exist or have existed on Mars or somewhere else in our universe excites many. But should we really be happy to hear that news? What are the philosophical implications of the possibility of extraterrestrial life? If life can blossom in our own cosmic backyard, then that means that the universe is most likely saturated with life forms. And if that’s the case, why haven’t we found any evidence of other civilizations? Is it because all civilizations are prone to suicidal destruction at a certain point in their development? If so, how might we avoid this fate? The Philosophers search for life with Paul Davies from Arizona State University, author of The Eerie Silence: Renewing Our Search for Alien Intelligence.

Climate protection is on the agenda at talks in Bonn. But back home, who's really taking action? We visit a budding environmental movement in Poland's coal heartland and find out how an oil pipeline has pitched environmentalists against the Canadian president. Plus, solar power in Kenya and a cool solution to LA's urban heat problem.



Katowice: A coal town that wants to go green


The upcoming COP24 climate summit will be held in Katowice, deep in Poland's industrial and coal mining heartland. Its air quality is among the worst in Europe. But the town is trying to clean up its act. And if Katowice can go green, perhaps anywhere can.


Canada's First Nations vs. tar sands pipeline


Canadian President Justin Trudeau has been vocal about his commitment to climate protection. But now, he's coming to blows with environmentalists and the provincial government of British Columbia over a massive oil pipeline

Can reflective roads help LA keep its cool?

Los Angeles has the greatest density of cars in the US — and a massive network of roads. In summer the asphalt absorbs sunlight and heats up, warming the air above it, an effect that will be exacerbated by climate change. But cool paving could change all that.

Ah Bartleby! Ah Humanity!

From Open Source | Part of the Open Source with Christopher Lydon series | 59:00

Bartleby_small Herman Melville, at his 200th birthday, is the American Shakespeare if only for his epic prose poem Moby Dick, or The Whale. That’s Maximum Melville; we’re celebrating, instead, his short story “Bartleby, the Scrivener.” It’s the perfect miniature of the same genius: the story of a rebel clerk on Wall Street. It opens with hints of comedy; it ends in tragedy and still today, it's a mystery. “I would prefer not to” is Bartleby’s signature line, turning down office assignments. It’s almost all he can say, but where are those five words of refusal coming from? And for whom is this Bartleby speaking?

“I would prefer not to” is Bartleby’s slogan—as familiar on Herman Melville T-shirts as the words that open Melville’s Moby-Dick: “Call me Ishmael.” But how different is the short story, “Bartleby the Scrivener,” from the great American novel—except that they’re both perfect Melville, in his 200th-birthday season. Bartleby appeared two years after Moby-Dick, in 1853, from Melville, who was still young at 34. It’s 30 pages instead of 600, far removed from the high seas, and more nearly manageable in one radio hour. Bartleby is a cadaverous and solitary young copyist (pre-Xerox machines) in a claustrophobic Wall Street law office. He’s the white-collar drone who opts out, refusing orders. Meaning what? Do we take him as a victim of class oppression, or a figure of extreme and individual depression? We’re open to the argument this hour that Bartleby stands for black America in the nineteenth century, and also he's modeling a way out of social media and the commercial capture of our attention, and also that he spoke for Melville himself, a prophetic artist facing the futility of his writing vocation which would bring him almost nothing in the way of money, praise, or readership in his lifetime.

High Country Celtic Radio 074 - FairPlé: Women in Celtic Music

From High Country Celtic Radio | Part of the High Country Celtic Radio series | 59:00


This week, Katie challenges Joe to come up with a show that features Celtic performers that happen to be women. Since there are so may incredibly talented women out there, it wasn't a difficult challenge. However, this often doesn't play out in festivals and airplay: most of the time, the performers are men. A group of Irish women started the FairPlé movement to encourage promoters and broadcasters to give equal time to female performers as they do the men. After an in-depth conversation with Irish song master, Niamh Parsons, Katie and Joe established a "FairPlé Score", where the goal is to have a 50% male/female ratio. This week, we hit a full 100.
This week, we feature the women performers: Liz Carroll & Jake Charron, Aoibheann & Pamela Quelly, Julie Fowlis, Sophie & Fiachra + André Marchand, Verena Commins & Julie Langan, De Danann, Bumblebees, Emer Mayock, Celia Ramsay & Shay Black, Lucie Périer, Arz Nevez, Gwennyn, Silver Arm, and Cherish the Ladies.
