divisions deepen in all media where opponents of the prime minister are spending a 2nd night outside parliament to monitoring his resignation. 80 classified u.s. intelligence report claims the sounds he crown prince approves the mug. shot and 20 teen and what may become a game changer for us out relations on. which a stock has come out against plans to make coronavirus vaccines of the tree front line was. the head of the clashes with. the hurricane that pose a possible it's will have to be used by the state. those are your headlines this hour if you want tells almost stories take
a peek at all to come next up here on the big picture. with all that we've been through lately isn't it great to have something that sheer about. that time. you didn't need to be nasa's jet propulsion laboratory in pasadena joined a standing o. when perseverance landed on mars last week whereupon perseverance tweeted i'm safe on mars perseverance will get you anywhere and you can follow the rover on twitter at nasa persevered and while we are learning more about life there we are telling any. one who might be there about life here like the pictures cavemen drew on their
walls and glimpses of ancient egypt depicted inside the pyramids we etched these images and cameras aboard the rover displaying earth's location in the solar system and depicting our planet's evolution with an atmosphere only $1100.00 ths of earth's and insufferable temperature extremes there it's unlikely that any e.t. looking mammals will read our greeting card but is there life on mars let's ask the co-author with j.l. pickering of the handsome picturing apollo 11 rare views and undiscovered moments and the space age presidency of john f. kennedy a rare photographic history longtime network space correspondent john business john the rovers bull's-eye is what we're told was a lake bed and we're being told that this is an astrobiology mission
what sort of life do scientists think we're going to find on mars will you put your finger and when you said there's probably not going to be some mammal or even reptile has come from behind a rock in fact it's doubtful they're going to find what we think of your or her but now what was the key word holland in the graduate what was dustin hoffman toll. plastics. the exactly for this the word is microbes ok microbes these are one celled little organisms they were the 1st forms of life on earth and when you explore mars nasa the idea is you follow the water so yes this is just a rogue crater looks from orbit like it would be a great place that once could have been a lake might have had water the curiosity rover already established the nutrients
are there if life was to form and to develop so it's like you know the ever the pieces are in place and hopefully scientists think that the perseverance rover is going to then see did any microbes actually develop and are there signs of those that would be amazing if that were to be discovered on this mission and eventually the rover is going to send some stuff back to earth that they've collected there correct well that's up in the air quite literally and here is why yes this rover is going to have the ability to drill into rocks and then take small samples of soil or a little rock pieces and then sort of package them up if you will capsules that is going to drop off on the martian service surface along the way is that explorers but will congress come up with the money for the follow on mission because to get
those back another spacecraft going to have to go to mars yet in orbit send a lender under down then follow perseverance this trail pick up all those little canisters yeah the muck and the launch itself and come back to earth that will be spectacular that's the plan will congress give the money we'll see. kuching the least we could do is clean up our litter john the drones that we're used to ducking here on earth should not leave us nonchalant about that little 4 pound helicopter that's flying around up there because the atmosphere is so thin just reckoning the aerodynamics was our real reckoning other than it worked what do we learn from this helicopter up there well you're right the whole it's a technology demonstrator it's call ingenuity and the idea is to find out is the martian atmosphere is there no oxygen there are dioxide to the core of actual
helicopter life flight this is a much more sophisticated piece of equipment and become a drone you would find the shell it's carry underneath the rover and maybe in a month or so we don't really know yet when the rover finds a nice glass little sort of be a hell of pad it'll drop from beneath the rover on the surface and then size and we're going to try it out and the 1st thing they're going to do is just do a very short life maybe 30 seconds or so get it off the ground back down see how that goes if that goes well then they're going to be feeling pretty good and over time over the next several months they will expand those flight times and distances and see how i could you get this thing how far away can your it's really a fascinating piece knology sure is i can't wait to see that video we're speaking
with the author and veteran network space correspondent john busy john and i are a long time brothers in the radio news family so i got to ask as if the video that we're seeing isn't breathtaking enough for the 1st time there are microphones up there john what can we expect to hear on mars. you know it's really cool actually 2 previous u.s. probes have had microphones one of them however good. the other woman microphone didn't work but this time we already know that at least one of them both work because it's. very very short and in a word what does this sound like i mean i guess i'd say breezy if you listen to the use all you hear is a very few seconds of a song wind blowing in the background and this thing can only be turned on and record and send back audio for about 3 and a half minutes and at the moment there's a little conflict with the sounds the rover itself makes it's mechanical sounds so
you have to sort of strip the satellite tropically and then you do you hear this very faint little very vocal you hear it we're not going to hear a lot of it is not going to be amazing but it's a start to maybe i guess or you think stereo while and eventually. yeah i heard a little clip that nasa posted on line and that's what it sounded like to me it sounded like the wind and the atmosphere up there is so thin that as had spent explained to me if you and i are standing 10 feet apart and i speak you don't hear it for like a minute so maybe the wind is all we're going to get just getting to mars which is 126 mil him miles away is literally a star trek perseverance launched in july and only touchdown last week a china and the united arab emirates are also in the neighborhood what are their
missions up to up there john. well both of those countries sent their own mars probe and they arrived within days of the perseverance landed was talking about them individually in the united arab emirates. is called ho they are very excited about it over in the u.a.e. all it's going to do with orbit and study the martian weather an atmosphere for several months but they're just thrilled they think it sort of brings the u.a.e. up in support of a different class of technologically good countries but all it's going to do but they're thrilled they've turned out some of the as one of the lights on through their buildings read my times to celebrate so it's a very big deal for a little country china on the other hand you just sort of you know what china does which is try to be everywhere and elbow everybody out of the way and they have a 3 part spacecraft much like we do it's an orbiter away under and the rover it's in orbit successfully and probably in the next maybe you may think is the
guess it will try to way just like prison parents did and send it similar on its way so china is trying to keep up with the big boys in space and we'll see you there you had a pretty good job. there is this take on the space race that they you and i witnessed as kids when it was the usa versus the u.s.s.r. and who's going to leap ahead or is china well a too limited in the scope of what they're doing well that they've had a you know person in orbit i mean they they would like to really beef up their spaceflight abilities and possibly send somebody on to the moon and then on to mars like we do i mean they're they're committed to these programs and they have a boatload of money to do it i think it's not going to be though until any country begins to say and people to mars i think that's one folks get their nationalistic interests up and say oh my gosh we better get there before the. last many years in
the future. yeah in the meantime we're not bumping into each other up there i assume that are in space correspondent author john business thanks again for stepping into the big picture now here's an update on last week's story about parenting during the pandemic social workers school board member and mom of 2 penny collins joined us to talk about coping with kids at home for what's approaching a year now and if you miss that segment you can see it where you'll find all our shows at youtube dot com slash the big picture r t now the new york times offers the primal scream a line. ringback function your times time of the mind and floor and you have to know. what i hear. all the live blog. is not my
mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom mom. said. oh wow. and then then well here's hoping that mom found that purging the number you see on your screen here though is not the times primal scream line this is the national parent helpline and if you're hearing this is a podcast i'm going to read it to you 855-427-2736 call this number if you are a stressed out parent 855-427-2736 we're going to switch to the number if you feel as though you're really at wit's end this is the national suicide prevention lifeline 18027.
38255 that's 80273 team a l.-k. if you need someone to talk to come on up the commercial used to sing delta is ready when you are but we'll baby and when you finally get the vacation you're really did well you'll want to fly this is the big picture on our t. america. when a trauma happens it changes us literally it causes a chemical change in our d.n.a.
and this changes the way our genes function. sometimes for generations. to spring carmencita's the spirits going to. fall. for most i'm not in the early ninety's seventy's helmet a psychologist and 6 only just proposed to the west but in senate a social experiment he wanted to let paedophiles adopt and kevin neglected boys experiment was a. if. it's all. don't. want all. your girls don't attention to believe that sex with older men would help with the boy's socialization over 30 years many children were handed paedophiles to raise them. as a little hard more than the logs in just over there of some work from the good old
least boardrooms or she didn't understand all folded. someone to go. have you flown lately and if not are you aware a video of the engine catching fire is pretty scary stuff but safety aside will air travel ever be the same post pandemic let's ask hillary ford which president of washington based a strong smart business development consultant celery welcome back to the big picture pleasure to be with you paula. as life hit the brakes early on in the shutdown you were here and we were talking about the airline industry inching back on track but it remains deeply depressed and we're reading various
consumer data that tells us not surprisingly cabin fever has many yearning for vacation travel but the airlines bread and butter is those business travelers that full fare ticket hilary does what you're hearing from the companies you work with suggest that as zoom has obsoleted business travel as we know it. would you or would i want to fly well absolutely you are totally right we track cabin fever actually i phone 5 times during this pandemic the airports was clean as you've ever seen them the cabins of airplanes obviously the air has been tested and it's pure as anyone's air probably their filters are a lot cleaner than your own home in anybody's home that's watching us so i think that traveling flying is going to be in massive divine demand eventually yes and there are many states of course in the u.s. that have remained open florida has remained open all the schools have remained open actually out of all of florida with all the schools remaining open how many
children have died 0 so i think a lot of people are beginning to hear about those places in the world that were sensible with us oceans social distancing and masking but that were open and those that have flown haven't died we have not had mass deaths so mass deaths either in west virginia where all of the churches remained open so i think people are going to realize that a lot of this wasn't quite as it was projected to be and people will fly yes we're guarding business travel the business travel will come back at one juncture and that is this if you are a global corporation a global consulting firm a global law firm and you have right now mandated that your staff won't travel number one for safety concerns but number 2 for cost effective reasons what will you do if you're the global managing partner of that global firm chairman when your competitor flies to meet with your client and that client is no longer your client then that's when trouble will open up the c.e.o.
of a lot of towns are has projected that they have vision business travel to back to normal by 2024 and i think that's somewhat realistic i think we'll see a creeping up creep up in demand more in 23 and definitely back to normal by 24 per his projection. yeah i think you're right about actually showing up as woody allen says 80 percent of life is a differentiator if everybody else is hunkered down something else you and i have following during the shutdown a downtown business or real estate while many workplaces are still configured like the office space we've seen in mad men the pandemic has accelerated the telecommuting we speak of and now we are reading how some businesses are taking advantage of collapsed in town rental markets they're buying low and our pal joe connelly a new c.b.s. with whom you've appeared here tells me how some single location new york
restaurant tours are opening a 2nd and 3rd restaurant because it's a buyer's market for real estate and joe says some city landlords are so desperate that rather than collecting rent they're accepting a revenue share of what retailers are doing are you seeing this elsewhere. yes actually and it's called obviously putting skin in the game because those obviously those that own real estate are in sort of somewhat dire straits to say the very least what we're also seeing is something called hub and spoke most people are familiar with that with regard to road systems are obviously the wheel concept it will be that there will be a central location sort of a cultural location for the center of offices where as most of their people will be located in satellite facilities the 2nd concept that is related to this which falls into this actually is within those satellite offices you can host a vast numbers of thousands of employees if you have the hotel in concept actually
accenture was one of the 1st firms to realize the economic benefits of hotelling meaning what meaning that neither you nor anybody would have a designated desk what you have is a hotel concept which is you're checking in and you're checking out the 2nd trend which is vast is also the remote control of everything for example there's a lot of experiments right now right now with voice activated microwaves voice activated security systems touchless everything we did in the offices that will be a huge trend and i also would defer to nicholas blum who is an economics professor in the center for income and economic studies at stanford university where dr blum has talked about is many different trends including this ticking time bomb of inequality with regard to those that can work at home and those that can't in other words those managers the financial industry those professors professionals who been
able to work remotely from home who are. high internet speeds they have sophisticated offices where as a demographic 36 percent of society that has poor internet connection or maybe no internet connection they're working out of a bedroom or shared facilities so he says there's a ticking time bomb for this sort of social inequity that will come out from this and demick and i think those are 2 big trends that you'll see the hub and spoke and the ticking time bomb of social inequality exacerbated by lack of technology that some people have. you know we see it already we're speaking with strome our president hillary ford which and hillary there's something i've been wanting to ask and tell you about amazon dot com you may have seen the report in the wall street journal by 2025 amazon wants to train 29000000 people to work in the cloud new program seek help people from montana to nigeria attain roles ranging from tech support to machine learning the company has committed $700000000.00 to
rescaling $100000.00 employees in the usa alone telecommuting on steroids meanwhile that same company is planning to in the words of george because stanza do the opposite right here in rhode island to n.b.c. 10 in providence has been reporting on a developer's proposal to construct a nearly $4000000.00 not a misprint $4000000.00 square foot distribution center in johnston it would be one of the largest buildings in the usa and although blue water property group hasn't said a word they're behind the amazon warehouse that's going up in the new york area and who else would need a $4000000.40 square foot this tribute center hillary admittedly this one company is a typical and they are going in 2 directions at once but when the dust settles in the new normal will the employment numbers essentially be where they were before
and people are just doing things differently i got a minute. yes they will be extremely different and there will be more emphasis on in terms of the intelligence work of basically ai is taking over everything one of the industries that's booming of course is i.t. and that is office efficiencies and office official sees in terms of technological oversight in terms of all of the platforms managing platforms in terms of swatch analysis the strengths weaknesses opportunities and trends and challenges that corporations are facing so a lot of the i.t. firms where they have that sort of software are absolutely dooming so it is going to be an intelligent workforce or or workforce that needs to be trained that now back to your point about amazon so they have the committed to train over 21000000 employees across the world so that they can operate in this new environment i think
one of the saddest aspects of this though holland is the fact that why does amazon have to do this it is because our educational system certainly here in the u.s. is the one i can speak to hasn't kept up with society just real right revolution type a curriculum has not evolved and i think what you're also going to see is very sadly what teachers teachers' unions are going to do to themselves what exactly can manufacturers unions did to themselves in places like florida where cars are no our new fractured and that is there rendering themselves obsolete hillary ford which from our business of element consultants thank you for stepping into the big picture. in the early 1980 s. music was migrating from am radio to f.m. radio and our dear departed chum larry king led a parade of talkers who repurposed the am stations into talk radio fast forward 10 years along comes rush limbaugh who became the soundtrack of the reagan
revolution fast forward another 10 years and through careless government deregulation major cundall aamer it's big companies bought up thousands of radio stations paid much too much money for him and as a result had the fire tens of thousands of people who were doing the local programming and talk radio became a caricature rush limbaugh got wealthy telling middle class people that poor people were trying to rip them off. on ash wednesday at 12 o 6 pm eastern time i was doing what i have been doing most weekdays at that hour i was tuning in to hear if rush was still there as he's been soldiering on for most of a year with stage 4 lung cancer and the moment we heard his wife
introduce herself we knew that the show was over it meant a lot to a lot of people but rush limbaugh cost radio millions and millions of dollars and advertiser boycotts after he spent consecutive days insulting college students center a fluke and racial comments got him kicked off monday night football the kind of stuff that you'd hear often on his show who will forget barack the magic negro still he meant a lot to a lot of conservatives and now almost 2 weeks later they're still rerunning rush limbaugh shows and some of it is poignant but we're approaching a cringe worthy of weekend at bernie's moment which has anxious affiliate stations wondering who's next while we wait for word of that success or here is the practical legacy of rush limbaugh if you don't smoke don't
start and if you do. it's not too late to add one more lenten. even if you're not catholic. and that is the big picture we'll be back same time next week with another show if you want to set your d.v.r. direct t.v. channel 321 dish 280 r.t. america streams live at youtube dot com slash r.t.m. america and you can see us live and watch of 1000 other shows on our super cool and free portable t.v. yeah it's in the app store or google play and a portable dot tv m holland cooks to come close to home here in rhode island and i hope your stay and safe to question more.
leading acts. mark foley leading expert in the field of inherited family drama and director of the family constellation is bestselling author really great to have you with us today. thank you so glad to be here. but some are e.c. trauma as our ancestors may have gone through are passed on to the following generations and in at our lives how exactly does that work and are these traumas passed as part of our genetic memory. actually they they are when a trauma happens it changes us literally it causes a chemical change in our d.n.a. and this changes the way our genes from.
