  • The Romans flooded the Colosseum for sea battles - Janelle Peters
    June 24, 2019

    Dig in to the history of the Roman Empire’s staged gladiatorial naval battles and how they flooded the Colosseum to reenact famous battles. -- Starting in 80 CE, residents of Rome and visitors from across the Roman Empire would fill the stands of the Colosseum to see gladiators duel, animals fight and chariots race around the arena. And for the grand finale, water poured into the arena basin, submerging the stage for the greatest spectacle of all: staged naval battles. Janelle Peters details the history of these mock maritime encounters. Lesson by Janelle Peters, directed by Brett Underhill.

Then, at age 34, his life changed forever. “The day started with a fever,” Miti recalls. “I went to a hospital and got medicine, but after I went home I discovered a blister on my left leg. Then after some hours there was another blister on the other leg. Then my legs turned black.” Mr. Miti was diagnosed with gangrene, a condition in which body tissue dies due to a lack of blood supply. To save Miti’s life, doctors had to amputate both legs. “It pained me” says Miti. “I nearly committed suicide. I thought that my life had ended.” But it hadn’t. Instead, Miti found an opportunity to leverage his disability by giving back to those in similar positions to him. Miti started working for the Zambian Association for Children with Disabilities, where he uses his carpentry skills to build devices for disabled children. Now, he has the opportunity to walk thanks to a pair of prosthetic legs. Filmmaker Austin Meyer documents Miti's first steps in this short film.

  • Witchcraft: Crash Course European History #10
    June 22, 2019

    During our last several episodes, Europe and the European-controlled world have been in crisis. Wars, disease, climate changes, and shifts in religious and political power threw the European world into turmoil. People were looking for a scapegoat, and for many it was a time of magical thinking. So, maybe witches were responsible for all the problems? It was a popular idea, but, alas, the witches weren't responsible. Sources: Godbeer, Richard, ed.

  • Could You Be a Chimera?
    June 21, 2019

    Follow me to MONSTRUM! https://youtu.be/x-GjSU4nOxE SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss a video! ►► http://bit.ly/iotbs_sub ↓↓↓ More info and sources below ↓↓↓ Ever feel like you aren't totally yourself? Well, maybe you aren't. In this video, we explore the idea of human chimeras. In mythology, the "Chimaera" was a beast made from different animals combined into one. But in biology, a chimera is a single organism whose body is made from parts of two or more genetically distinct individuals of the same species. Biological chimeras were once thought to be rare, but modern genetics has shown us that these genetic mashups are so common, that you yourself may actually be a chimera. And even if you don't have part of another body in you, your body is certainly not just one thing. We also discuss the idea of mosaicism and how it relates to cancer, Tasmanian devils, and circus sideshow attractions. #genetics #chimera Special thanks to Dr. Emily Zarka, our favorite monsterologist!

  • There may be extraterrestrial life in our solar system - Augusto Carballido
    June 20, 2019

    Is there extraterrestrial life in our solar system? Or are we alone? Take a journey to the ocean worlds on Jupiter and Saturn to investigate the possibility. -- Deep in our solar system, a new era of exploration is unfolding. Beneath the thick ice of Europa; in the vapor plumes on Enceladus; and within the methane lakes of Titan, scientists are hunting for extraterrestrial life. These moons are ‘ocean worlds’— they contain liquid oceans, which can support the formation of life. Does life exist on ocean worlds? Augusto Carballido explores the possibility.

  • Our Ignorance About Gravity
    June 20, 2019

    Thanks to the Heising Simons Foundation (https://www.hsfoundation.org/) for their support of this video, and of short range gravity research. This video is about how little we know about the behavior of gravity at short length and distance scales, what the constraints are on the inverse square law/Newton's law of universal gravitation, at the human and microscopic and atomic scales. Only on solar system scales or larger do we have good constraints on Newton's law of gravitation.

  • What Does the Moon Smell Like?
    June 19, 2019

  • Nocturnal Pygmy Slow Loris
    June 18, 2019

    Living up to its name, the pygmy slow loris is both small—reaching a mere nine inches in length—and methodically slow, ambling along branches on all fours. Its hands and feet are über dexterous. The loris is able to hang motionless, a skill facilitated by extra main-limb vascular bundles called retia mirabilia that allow blood to flow to its extremities, so the animal doesn’t experience “pins and needles” from lack of circulation. It grasps small branches with an iron grip, even as a predator tries to pry it off. During warm months, the pygmy slow loris is on the move throughout most of the night, moseying quadrupedally, stretching from one branch (or tree) to the next; it rarely comes to the ground. Slow lorises can actually move faster than other loris species, covering nearly five miles in a night! During chilly months, they may enter a state of torpor, living off their fat reserves and moving very little. Before you say “I want one” or even click “like” on one of the countless internet videos, know that the illegal pet trade is one of the most horrific threats to lorises—and they make terrible pets! As noted, they are nocturnal, so bright light is highly stressful for them. Thousands of slow lorises are poached from the wild using spotlights shone into the trees. The light reflects off the animals’ tapetum lucidum, a mirror-like structure in the eye that improves night vision, and disorients them as the “hunter” nabs them. Worst of all, the little animal’s teeth are cut using nail clippers, wire cutters, or pliers (with no anesthesia), so the buyer won’t be bitten. The animals are transported in dark, overcrowded, poorly ventilated containers, and many of them die along the way. People who keep lorises cannot feed them appropriately, resulting in disease, distress, and early death for the animals. Loris poaching is a savage black market that informed, compassionate consumers want no part of. International Animal Rescue launched the “Tickling Is Torture” campaign to combat viral videos and “cute” photos of slow lorises being kept as pets, which perpetuates the illegal trade of slow lorises. Awareness is key. These fascinating animals belong in the forest, not under glaring lights getting combed with a toothbrush for social media. Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/SanDiegoZoo/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/sandiegozoo/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/sandiegozoo Tumblr - https://sdzoo.tumblr.com/ Giphy - https://giphy.com/sandiegozoo The San Diego Zoo is home to three pygmy slow lorises: 15-year-old Minh, 5-year-old Abhi, and a 10-year-old female, Padma. They are in a cozy, nocturnal, off-exhibit breeding area, as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan (SSP) program. Primary keepers Rochelle Willison and Matthew Bearden pay keen attention to the animals’ health and welfare, and go to great lengths to keep the little primates engaged. In the early morning, keepers entice the lorises with a spoonful of apple sauce—a loris favorite—in order to examine them and document their weights. “We look to see if they moved stuff around and used their enrichment during the night,” explained Rochelle, who has a genuine passion for these animals. “They can be feisty little things, too!” By night, the lorises enjoy an array of fruit, crickets, mealworms, hard-boiled eggs, and a bit of baby food. Their room is kept around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which suits them. Keepers provide novel scents, hanging hammocks, toys, and small animal beds to keep things interesting. “They hide out, ‘tucking’ during the day, which is another way to tell if they’re healthy,” added Rochelle. Both keepers noted that the illegal pet trade poses a grave threat to these beguiling animals. “They have so many unique traits,” said Matthew. We need to “get them in the eye of the public, so people understand the threats they face.” Humans can be the solution, or the problem. It’s up to each one of us.

  • How do crystals work? - Graham Baird
    June 18, 2019

    What makes crystals grow into their signature shapes? Dig into the atomic patterns and unique properties of crystals. -- Many crystals have signature shapes— like the cascade of pointed quartz or a pile of galena cubes. Every crystal’s atoms have a defining feature: their organized, repeating pattern. The pattern isn't restricted to minerals- sand, ice, metals and DNA also have crystalline structures. So what causes them to grow into these shapes again and again? Graham Baird dives into the unique properties of crystals. Lesson by Graham Baird, directed by Franz Palomares.

What happens inside a chrysalis to turn a caterpillar into a beautifully painted butterfly? Does it really turn to soup? I visited Dr. Arnaud Martin, who uses the CRISPR genetic modification technology to learn about how genes build bodies. Dr. Martin uses CRISPR to disrupt certain genes, and then looks for changes in butterfly wing patterns, creating designs we never see in nature. This tells us which genes control which part of the "wing painting" process. In the process of visiting Dr. Martin’s lab, I had my mind blown about what REALLY happens during butterfly metamorphosis. You will too. #butterflies #CRISPR #genetics Special thanks to Arnaud Martin and the entire Martin Lab at George Washington University https://dnacrobatics.com Chrysalis window timelapses courtesy of Aaron Pomerantz from the lab of Dr. Nipam Patel. http://www.patellab.net/ Check out Aaron’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHr0u7Jsktou2CFl2GhTxYA SOURCES: https://sites.google.com/view/painting-wings-with-crispr/home The Great Courses Plus is currently available to watch through a web browser to almost anyone in the world and optimized for the US, UK, and Australian markets.

However, at a bog in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario Canada, scientists have found many pitcher plants with a more ambitious diet. Nearly 20 percent of the carnivorous plants were eating spotted salamanders. It was previously considered a rare phenomenon for these plants to regularly consume vertebrates. This study suggests otherwise. It's possible the salamanders provide an extra boost of nutrients as cold settles in. Scientists speculate that the acidity of the pitcher fluid could kill them or they might get cooked in it when it's heated up by the sun. Spotted salamanders are listed as "of least concern" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List.

  • Your body vs. implants - Kaitlyn Sadtler

    Why do medical implants like insulin pumps and prosthetic knees need replacement? Explore how the immune system fights implants and how new devices are trying to help. -- Insulin pumps improve the lives of millions of people with diabetes around the world by monitoring blood sugar, delivering insulin, and preventing the need for constant finger-pricking. But there’s a catch: they’re temporary. And it’s not only insulin pumps that have this problem, but all bodily implants. Why is that?

  • Endangered Tapir Celebrates First Birthday
    June 13, 2019

    Everyone's favorite tapir turned one today (June 13, 2019)! Don Tapir took the San Diego Zoo -- and the world -- by storm as the first endangered Baird's tapir to be born at the Zoo in 30 years. He was named after Don Janssen, the former director of animal health who dedicated much of his career to improving animal care at the San Diego Zoo. Tapir calves begin to lose these markings after a few months, and they resemble miniature adults at about 8 months of age. Don has certainly grown out of his "watermelon" coat, but he's still sweet as ever. Baird’s tapirs are native to Mexico and Central America. As a key species in shaping and maintaining the biological diversity of tropical forests, tapirs are vital components in their ecosystems. They are important seed dispersers and leave their forest habitat well fertilized, helping ensure new growth of plants that provide food and shelter. The Baird’s tapir is listed as Endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. Habitat loss and hunting have contributed to an estimated 50 percent population decline over the last 30 years. San Diego Zoo Global has long been committed to tapir conservation and has been a consistent supporter of tapir projects worldwide, along with contributing to the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Tapir Specialist Group. Additionally, the San Diego Zoo participates in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Baird’s tapir Species Survival Plan (SSP), which aims to maintain a genetically viable population of this species in accredited institutions.

  • Could underwater farms help fight climate change? - Ayana Johnson and Megan Davis
    June 13, 2019

    Dive into the world of aquaculture and see how restorative ocean farming could play a vital role in helping our coastal communities, our oceans and our climate. -- For billions of people, seafood provides a significant source of protein and nutrition, but over half the seafood we eat isn’t caught in the wild, it’s grown through aquaculture. Farmed seafood is one of the fastest-growing food industries, but the farming methods echo the problems we’ve seen in industrial agriculture. Is there a way to sustainably farm the ocean?

  • Panda Palooza: Six Giant Panda Cubs Born at San Diego Zoo
    June 11, 2019

    Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/SanDiegoZoo/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/sandiegozoo/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/sandiegozoo Tumblr - https://sdzoo.tumblr.com/ Giphy - https://giphy.com/sandiegozoo Before returning home to China, the beloved Bai Yun successfully raised six cubs at the San Diego Zoo. Get your bearings on who’s who 🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼🐼 In 1999, after years of scientific work, the Zoo welcomed Hua Mei, a tiny bear whose birth was a huge achievement. Her name means “China USA,” to honor the collaboration between two countries to help save pandas. Hua Mei was the first successful panda cub born in the US and when she made her public debut, pandamonium ensued. In 2004, Hua Mei returned to China. To date, she has given birth to 11 cubs—including 3 sets of twins! Mei Sheng bounced onto the scene in 2003. His name means “born in the USA,” and he was the first cub sired by Gao Gao. Mei Sheng was more attached to his mom, but he also had a goofy side. He had a habit of hanging upside down from tree limbs and swinging, and guests loved to watch his antics. Su Lin was a laid-back panda cub. She was born in 2005. Her name means “a little bit of something very cute,” and she certainly lived up to it. Su Lin was the first cub trained to be part of the giant panda hearing study. The “precious” Zhen Zhen arrived in 2007. She was beary independent and had nonstop energy. Panda fans voted for her name! Zhen Zhen was notorious for bouncing on tree branches until they broke. She was also the star of a PBS documentary about giant pandas. Zhen Zhen returned to China in 2010 with her sister Su Lin. Yun Zi was born in 2009, and was Bai’s biggest cub. His name means “son of cloud” but keepers nicknamed him “monster,” because he had a tough attitude as a young cub. Our sixth cub, Xiao Liwu, took the San Diego Zoo—and the world—by storm. His name means “little gift,” but we affectionately call him Mr. Wu. We’re proud and beary grateful for the conservation contribution these cubs have made toward saving giant pandas from extinction.

  • Ugly History: Witch Hunts - Brian A. Pavlac
    June 11, 2019

    Uncover the history of the witch hunts that swept through Europe and the American colonies from the 15th century until the 18th century. -- In the German town of Nördlingen in 1593, innkeeper Maria Höll found herself accused of witchcraft. She was arrested for questioning, and denied the charges. She insisted she wasn’t a witch through 62 rounds of torture before her accusers finally released her. Other accused witches weren’t so “lucky." Why did these witch hunts occur? Brian A. Pavlac digs into this horrific chapter in human history. Lesson by Brian A. Pavlac, directed by Lisa LaBracio.

  • Catholic Counter-Reformation: Crash Course European History #9
    June 7, 2019

    When the Protestant Reformation broke out in Western Europe, the Catholic Church got the message, at least a little bit. Pope Paul III called a council to look into reforming some aspects of the Catholic Church and try to stem the tide of competing Christian sects popping up all over the place. The Council of Trent changed some aspects of the organization, but doubled down on a lot of the practices that Martin Luther and other reformers had a problem with.

  • Brazilian Salmon Pink Bird-eating Tarantula Molting - Cincinnati Zoo
    June 7, 2019

    Time-lapse video of our Brazilian salmon pink bird-eating tarantula. Molting (or shedding of the exoskeleton) occurs because it’s the only way a tarantula (like other invertebrates) can grow. Once they mature, adult tarantulas generally molt once a year. Young tarantulas may molt every few months. Tarantulas flip on their backs in order to molt properly. During the pre-molt phase, fluid is pumped in between the old exoskeleton and the new one, which will assist in the shedding of the old exoskeleton. During this phase is when the tarantula will stop eating and will become less active. Once they molt, they flip back over and will “rest” until their new exoskeleton has had a chance to harden. This post-molt stage may take anywhere from a month to a few months, depending on the species.

Giraffes are listed as vulnerable on The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of endangered species, with population declines of up to 40% in the last 30 years. San Diego Zoo Global supports a community conservation effort in northern Kenya that is finding ways for people and wildlife to live together. Guests who visit the Zoo’s giraffe exhibit can purchase high-fiber biscuits that can be fed to the giraffes, and the money raised helps fund the non-profit’s community conservation work in Africa.

  • Pygmy Slow Loris at the San Diego Zoo
    June 5, 2019

    Living up to its name, the pygmy slow loris is both small—reaching a mere nine inches in length—and methodically slow, ambling along branches on all fours. Its hands and feet are über dexterous. The loris is able to hang motionless, a skill facilitated by extra main-limb vascular bundles called retia mirabilia that allow blood to flow to its extremities, so the animal doesn’t experience “pins and needles” from lack of circulation. It grasps small branches with an iron grip, even as a predator tries to pry it off. During warm months, the pygmy slow loris is on the move throughout most of the night, moseying quadrupedally, stretching from one branch (or tree) to the next; it rarely comes to the ground. Slow lorises can actually move faster than other loris species, covering nearly five miles in a night! During chilly months, they may enter a state of torpor, living off their fat reserves and moving very little. Before you say “I want one” or even click “like” on one of the countless internet videos, know that the illegal pet trade is one of the most horrific threats to lorises—and they make terrible pets! As noted, they are nocturnal, so bright light is highly stressful for them. Thousands of slow lorises are poached from the wild using spotlights shone into the trees. The light reflects off the animals’ tapetum lucidum, a mirror-like structure in the eye that improves night vision, and disorients them as the “hunter” nabs them. Worst of all, the little animal’s teeth are cut using nail clippers, wire cutters, or pliers (with no anesthesia), so the buyer won’t be bitten. The animals are transported in dark, overcrowded, poorly ventilated containers, and many of them die along the way. People who keep lorises cannot feed them appropriately, resulting in disease, distress, and early death for the animals. Loris poaching is a savage black market that informed, compassionate consumers want no part of. International Animal Rescue launched the “Tickling Is Torture” campaign to combat viral videos and “cute” photos of slow lorises being kept as pets, which perpetuates the illegal trade of slow lorises. Awareness is key. These fascinating animals belong in the forest, not under glaring lights getting combed with a toothbrush for social media. Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/SanDiegoZoo/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/sandiegozoo/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/sandiegozoo Tumblr - https://sdzoo.tumblr.com/ Giphy - https://giphy.com/sandiegozoo The San Diego Zoo is home to three pygmy slow lorises: 15-year-old Minh, 5-year-old Abhi, and a 10-year-old female, Padma. They are in a cozy, nocturnal, off-exhibit breeding area, as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan (SSP) program. Primary keepers Rochelle Willison and Matthew Bearden pay keen attention to the animals’ health and welfare, and go to great lengths to keep the little primates engaged. In the early morning, keepers entice the lorises with a spoonful of apple sauce—a loris favorite—in order to examine them and document their weights. “We look to see if they moved stuff around and used their enrichment during the night,” explained Rochelle, who has a genuine passion for these animals. “They can be feisty little things, too!” By night, the lorises enjoy an array of fruit, crickets, mealworms, hard-boiled eggs, and a bit of baby food. Their room is kept around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which suits them. Keepers provide novel scents, hanging hammocks, toys, and small animal beds to keep things interesting. “They hide out, ‘tucking’ during the day, which is another way to tell if they’re healthy,” added Rochelle. Both keepers noted that the illegal pet trade poses a grave threat to these beguiling animals. “They have so many unique traits,” said Matthew. We need to “get them in the eye of the public, so people understand the threats they face.” Humans can be the solution, or the problem. It’s up to each one of us.

  • Could CBD Make You Fail a Drug Test?
    June 4, 2019

    Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non psychoactive compound produced by the marijuana plant that seems to be everywhere these days. Maybe you’ve even been asked if you’d like it added to your morning cup of joe! THC, also marijuana-derived, is what gets people high and is screened for by drug tests. The chemical structure of THC is very similar to CBD’s, which begs the question: Could using CBD make you fail a drug test?

  • Commerce, Agriculture, and Slavery: Crash Course European History #8
    June 2, 2019

    We've been talking a lot about kings, and queens, and wars, and religious upheaval for most of this series, but let's take a moment to zoom out, and look at the ways that individuals' lives were changing in the time span we've covered so far. Some people's lives were improving, thanks to innovations in agriculture and commerce, and the technologies that drove those fields.

  • Why should you read “The Master and Margarita”? - Alex Gendler
    May 30, 2019

    Get to know the Russian classic “The Master and Margarita,” a genre-defying blend of political satire and occult mysticism about a visit from the Devil. -- The Devil has come to town. But don’t worry– all he wants to do is stage a magic show. This absurd premise forms the central plot of Mikhail Bulgakov’s masterpiece, “The Master and Margarita.” Its blend of political satire, historical fiction and occult mysticism has earned a legacy as one of the 20th century’s greatest novels– and one of its strangest. Alex Gendler explores the subversive novel. Lesson by Alex Gendler, directed by Adriatic Animation.
