363: The Puzzle of Personality, 11/27/2020

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 59:00

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small On this rebroadcast of the Pulse- Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Open to new experiences, or comforted by routine? Shy or the life of the party? Figuring out what makes us tick is an important part of understanding how we function within our families, communities, and workplaces. Thousands of tests online promise to assess your personality — but what are they actually measuring? Where does personality come from, how does it form, and where does it live? On this episode, we explore the science behind how we become who we are. We hear stories about what makes for a healthy personality, how our brains betray who we are, and why we change depending on who we’re with.

Is this the end of the road for the internal combustion engine? 

 

In a bold move designed to drastically lower carbon emissions, California Governor Gavin Newsom has announced a ban on sales of new gas-powered vehicles by 2035. Other states are sure to follow suit. But is it a realistic goal?

 

“I think so; we can do it,” says clean transportation consultant Emily Castor Warren. “The technology is there and we’re starting to see a really rapidly increasing pace of consumer adoption.

 

“So, at this point the writing is on the wall for the end of the combustion engine vehicle…it's a matter of time.” 

 

California isn’t the first major economy to ban gas-powered cars and trucks, and it won’t be the last. Fifteen countries, including some of the world’s top auto markets, have announced plans to phase out gas-powered engines as a step toward a 100% zero-emission vehicle future. It’s a bold move, but a critical one for climate. Transportation emits more greenhouse gas than any other sector of the US economy, and 15% of all global emissions come from road transport.

What does this mean for drivers, for automakers, for infrastructure and for businesses that depend on a gas-powered economy?

 

Castor Warren sees no reason why the auto industry can’t make the switch to EVs – and thrive in the process.  She admits that the transition could be painful, “because when you're embedded in a particular way of building cars…it’s scary and there can be transitional costs. 

 

“But in the long arc of things, there's no reason why folks can't successfully sell these electric cars.”

Worldwide EV sales have dropped around fifteen percent during the covid recession, but one region is experiencing a power surge. Europeans have purchased four hundred thousand plug-in cars this year, a significant increase over previous years. Colin McKerracher of Bloomberg NEF believes the auto market will play a big part in helping European countries meet their climate goals.

 

“These long-term phaseout targets, they’re not so long-term anymore,” McKerracher says. “We’re not talking about 2040, 2050 - 2030 is just over nine years away.

 

“Certainly, governments are sending very clear signals right now to automakers that this is the direction we want things to go.  We know there are some challenges ahead.  We want to work together in solving them, but this is where we’re going.  This is the direction of traffic.”

Abso-Bloomin-Lutely (#1526)

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

5246392675_6edc01b256_m_small After hanging out with San Diego sailing enthusiasts, Martha picked up several bits of slang and jargon. Catenary describes the desirable curve of an anchor chain, from Latin catena, meaning "chain." A chain that is not pulled up correctly runs the risk of forming castles, irregular piles of links that require untangling or descastling. The route along the coast of Baja California going south from San Diego is usually pleasant and known as the Baja Ha-Ha, but traveling in the opposite direction, from the tip of the peninsula, can be grueling and is known as the Baja Bash. One must always be on the lookout for a BOSS, or "big old steel ship," and sailors approaching their home port like to say they're nearing the barn.


Calley from Bowling Green, Kentucky, wonders about the word zonked, meaning "exhausted." Like the word conk, as in conked out, meaning "fast asleep," zonk originally had to do with a blow to the head.


Is there a synonym for the word synonym? Yes, there are two: polyonym and poecilonym, but they're rarely seen except in collections of unusual words.


Betsy in Virginia Beach, Virginia, says her family refers to the lovable pudge on babies as goonus. It's a fond term that can also refer to such things as the swinging belly fat on a cat. Does anyone else say goonus, or is it a family word?


The California superbloom included Nemophila maculata, a white blossom with a dab of purple at the end of each of five petals. It's also called Fivespot. The maculata in the scientific name derives from Latin macula, meaning "spot," as in immaculate, meaning "spotless." The Nemophila comes from Greek words meaning "forest-loving." A nemophilist is someone fond of forests.


Quiz Guy John Chaneski's brain teaser involves mixed-up body parts. For example, suppose he says, "Listen you, stop bothering me or I'm going to give you a toe sandwich!" What part of one's anatomy did he really mean?


Maira lives in Puerto Rico and speaks English as a second language. When friends visiting from Minnesota join her at the beach and are ready to swim out into the surf, they say I'm ready to go out. When they're ready to go back onto the shore, they say I'm ready to go in. But Maira says just the opposite: I'm ready to go in when she's about to go swimming, and I'm ready to go out when she stop swimming. Who's right?


Grant responds to a voicemail from Doug in Louisville, Kentucky, who asks whether our phone's autocomplete function will affect the way we talk and write. The answer is yes, partly because of Markov chains, or models describing a sequence of possible events.


Judy from Binghamton, New York, remembers her aunt in Redding, Pennsylvania, using the term ferhunsed to mean "confused." Sometimes spelled fahunst or ferhoonsed, it means "teased" or "mixed up," and derives from German verhunzen, meaning to "spoil" or "botch" or "bungle."


David in Austin, Texas, wonders if smithereens, meaning "bits" or "fragments," as in explode into smithereens, refers to little bits of metal left over from blacksmithing. Actually, the origin of smithereen is uncertain, although it may come from Irish English or Irish Gaelic, but no one's really sure. It may be related to smithers which also means "small pieces."  A similar-sounding word, shivereens, comes from shiver, meaning "splinter" or "fragment."


A sea-kindly boat is one that handles well on the ocean. The kindly reflects an old use of the word to mean "suited" or "suitable."


Suppose you could invite any two authors, living or dead, to dinner. Who's on your guest list and why? Deciding that question may tell you more about the host than the guests. Martha's choices: Sappho and Toni Morrison. Grant's: Akhenaten and Ben Franklin.


The phrase standing on my own two pins goes back to the 1940s and means "standing on my own two legs."


Scott in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, wonders if the words nother as in a whole nother and abso-bloomin-lutely are real words. Yes, they are! The construction a whole nother is an example of what linguists call tmesis, which involves the insertion of a lexical element that doesn't make a whole new word. In-fixing, which is quite similar, and might be considered a form of tmesis, involves inserting a lexical element into a word or compound to make a new word. James McMillian's article in American Speech, "Infixing and Interposing in English," offers lots of examples.


A deipnosophist is someone skilled in the art of dinner table conversation.


Joanna from Dallas, Texas, says English is not her first language, and she's trying to understand the nuances of the words event and eventful. She wonders if the word eventful carries a less positive connotation than the word event. It depends on context, although eventful often has negative associations. You wouldn't want your surgery, for example, to be an eventful one.


Chronophagous is a rare word that means "time-consuming." WOMBAT is an acronym that stands for Waste of Money, Brains, and Time.

In the mid-’90s, two high-end New York art galleries began selling one fake painting after another – works in the style of Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko and others. It was the largest art fraud in modern U.S. history, totaling more than $80 million. Our first story looks at how it happened and why almost no one ever was punished by authorities. 
Our second story revisits an investigation into a painting looted by the Nazis during World War II. More than half a century later, a journalist helped track it down through the Panama Papers.

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.

Origin Stories (re-run)

From Open Source | Part of the Open Source with Christopher Lydon series | 58:30

Screen_shot_2020-11-25_at_5

This is a re-broadcast of a show from December 2019.

Origin stories can be educated guesses, or leaps of collective imagination as to who we are, how we got to this point. The Big Bang is one kind, Adam and Eve make another. 1492 and 1776 are American starting points. The argument gets stickier around 1620, when Mayflower Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock; and 1619, when the first African slaves came ashore in Virginia. Just a year apart, they’re the opening chapters of two very different epics of a single nation: one born in the flight of pious Puritans to freedom, the other born in the theft of people and land to build an empire of cotton and capitalism.

It’s a funny thing about origin stories—who we are, how we got here. We know going in that the stories are made up, one way or another. And we come to find out that a lot of them are just plain wrong. Then what? The Sunday magazine of the New York Times took a bold run this past summer at the year 1620 as the start of the American story— the year, of course, when the Mayflower landed about one hundred dissenting English Puritans, our pilgrims, at Plymouth Rock. But no, the Times argued, our first chapter was dated 1619, a year earlier when a ship bearing some 20 African slaves landed in Point Comfort, Virginia, which was to say the drive to implant a slavocracy in the new world had a step on building a temple of freedom.

We’re talking with Nikole Hannah-Jones, Philip Deloria, and Peter Linebaugh about national origin stories. The thread here is storytelling that explains and often hides what happened.

Nikole Hannah-Jones is the writer and editor who led what the Times called a major initiative at the paper to reframe American history. And she strikes the keynote of this radio hour around slavery at the foundations of U.S. history and in our own origin stories in general.

Peter Linebaugh is a transnational historian of economics and culture. He’s been tracking the privatization of common land in England and the New World. 1792 is his magic start date of what is now the world system.

The historian Philip Deloria—the first tenured professor of Native American history at Harvard—considers the Native American encounters with those colonists in the 1600s.

From Bluesnet Radio | Part of the Blue Dimensions series | 59:00

Pelt_small

In this hour of Blue Dimensions, it's Jeremy and Jim — new music from trumpeter Jeremy Pelt and alto saxophonist Jim Snidero. The music is mostly soft on Pelt's new album of ballads, "The Art of Intimacy, Volume 1," with pianist George Cables and bassist Peter Washington. The sound is louder and more provocative on Snidero's new album "Project-K," an album of jazzed-up Korean musical themes, including the use of a traditional Korean instrument, the gayageum ("guy-goom"), which resembles a zither. The band includes Dave Douglas on trumpet, Orrin Evans on piano, Linda May Han Oh on bass, Rudy Royston on drums, and DoYeon Kim on gayageum. We'll also play a couple of pieces from 2018, from "Jubilation," the album Jim Snidero & Jeremy Pelt did together that year, which was a tribute album to Cannonball Adderly.

Three engaging and very different albums, all called "Presence," coming up in this hour of Blue Dimensions.
