What is an IPA ?

What is an IPA ?

2022-05-2403:58

What is an IPA ? India Pale Ales stand out through their golden to amber colours, distinct bitterness and fruitiness. Why such characteristics? Well, it’s all down to hops actually, which are used in greater quantities when brewing IPAs. The name is actually a little misleading, in that it doesn't mean that the beer was brewed in India at all. Rather it refers to the fact that in the 18th century, Britain exported this kind of beer to its empire in the east, via a gruelling six-month sea route to India, passing through the North Atlantic, around Africa and then into the Indian Ocean. Hops actually act as a preservative, so using more meant the  was better protected during those long sea journeys. Who came up with it then ? Have they always been as popular as they are nowadays ?

Who is Guillermo Del Toro? On January 21st, Nightmare Alley, the new psychological thriller from Guillermo del Toro, hit UK cinemas. Let’s pay tribute to a truly extraordinary director, novelist, producer, and screenwriter. Believe it or not, the Mexican hadn't released a single film since 2017 before Nightmare Alley. That was The Shape of Water, which won Best Picture and Best Director awards at the Oscars the following year. He took a hiatus after that, which was extended due to Covid-related delays, but the master is back in 2022. What is so exceptional about Del Toro's work then? Is it true he could have worked on Harry Potter? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions! To listen to the last episodes, you can click here: What is the Rubik’s Cube ? What is Housing First ?

What is the fertility cliff? The ability of a woman to get pregnant and give birth doesn’t last forever. 35 has traditionally been seen as a fertility cliff, a kind of cut-off point after which it becomes much more difficult to have a child. Women in their early 30s and even late 20s often feel under pressure from their families or society, like they are losing a race against their biological clock. But recent research findings have led many to call the reasoning behind this threshold into question.  So where did the idea of 35 being a fertility cliff come from? What’s the latest information in this area then? What conclusions should we draw from all this? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!

What is a sex fast ?

What is a sex fast ?

2022-05-1904:46

What is a sex fast? Most often when we talk about a fast, we’re referring to going without food for a period of time, perhaps for religious reasons. But the same concept can apply to sex too. That’s right, the trend of sex fasts has been getting a lot of attention in the last couple of months. That’s largely down to Kourtney Kardashian, who has been one of the method’s main advocates. The star told American magazine Bustle about it in March 2022. She went on a spiritual retreat with fiancé Travis Barker, and the couple agreed on a sex fast as part of an ayurvedic cleanse.  That’s right, a sex fast is a period of volontary abstinence during which all sexual activity is off the cards. Are there specific rules ? What’s the point of doing a sex fast then ? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions ! To listen to the last episodes, you can click here : What is Housing First ?

What is Housing First ? The Housing First policy was thought out to combat homelessness. It emerged in the 1990s, first trialled by New York not-for-profit organisation Pathways to Housing. After the turn of the century, it picked up further momentum, gradually going on to become part of government policy in the United States and then elsewhere. It has also been championed by the European Commission, which has set itself an ambitious target of eradicating homelessness by 2030. How does the model work? Are we saying it’s worked well then?

What is Extinction Rebellion ? This environmental movement was created in England just a few years ago in October 2018, but quickly spread all across the world. Extinction Rebellion’s aim is to compel governments to take action against global warming and environmental collapse. It’s earned a reputation as a radical organisation, due to its disobedience and disruption tactics. But only using non-violent action is one of its key principles. Also known as XR, Extinction Rebellion was born from a realisation that traditional protest methods were insufficient when it came to the environment crisis. These activists felt new methods and organisation forms were required, taking inspiration from other grassroots movements like Occupy, the American civil rights movement or the suffragettes. What do they actually want in concrete terms? How did such a young movement get to be so rich and powerful? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

What is Dawson’s Creek ? If you were born in the 80s or 90s, the chances are you could be answering this question instead of me! Dawson’s Creek was a huge cult hit among millennials. It was pretty much the ultimate 90s teen series. It tells the lives of Dawson, Jen, Pacey and Joey, four teens living in the fictional town of Capeside. They were played by James Vanderbeck, Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson and Katie Holmes respectively. The main character is Dawson, hence the name of the series, and his dream is to make it as a cinema director or scriptwriter. Both Joey and Jen are Dawson’s childhood friends, but Jen has only just reacquainted with him after moving to Cape Side from New York. Why is it such a cult hit? What happened to all the lead actors afterwards? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions ! To listen to the last episodes, you can click here : What is fluxus? What is mirror work?

What is a bioregion?

What is a bioregion?

2022-05-1404:01

What is a bioregion ? All over the world, our administrative regions tend to have exclusive competencies, like running schools, public transport, professional training, economic development, fund management and land planning. Areas are defined by political boundaries, rather than the ecological system where they’re situated. But in recent years, an environmental alternative has slowly been gaining ground; that of the bioregion.  We owe the concept to Americans Peter Berg and Judy Goldhaft. The radical environmentalists wanted to find harmony between the natural environment and our human culture. The term emerged in the 1960s and 70s in California. Are we saying regions would no longer be divided by administration then ? So you’re saying everything is thought out according to nature right ? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

What is fluxus ? There are artistic movements which we’ve all heard of at least once, whether it be at school, in a museum or watching a cultural show on TV. But at the same time, it can be difficult to define them, and that’s why we’re here to help. Today we’re going to shed light on a 1960s anti-art movement known as fluxus. What anti-art is ? And how does that relate to the fluxus movement ? So what are the main works from the fluxus movement ?  In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

What is mirror work ? It’s not easy to learn to love yourself and have good self-esteem. But here’s the good news: it is possible to work at it. That’s the main premise behind positive psychology and personal development at least.

On April 25th, Elon Musk struck a deal to buy Twitter for $44 billion. What is Starlink? While the Space Race makes us think back to the 20th century, some billionaires are dreaming of ruling space in 2020. In particular Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, who’s planning to send tens of thousands of satellites into orbit in coming years. The name of the project is Starlink and the goal is to deliver high-speed broadband access across the globe. Behind Starlink is the private company SpaceX, which Elon Musk founded in 2002. Earlier this year, it became the first private company to send astronauts into space. Musk has long held the ambition of colonizing the planet Mars, which remains a future objective for SpaceX. Since 2015, the company has been developing the Starlink megaconstellation of satellites. The stated aim is bold: providing high-speed internet access anywhere on earth. We’re talking at sea, in the middle of the desert or the depths of the countryside. Doesn’t satellite internet access already exist? Existing satellites giving internet access are in geostationary orbit and the technology only allows a limited number of users to access it. Latency times are also high, due to the 20,000 mile distance between the satellites and us on Earth. Starlink, on the other hand, sends satellites into Low Earth orbit at 550 miles. Latency will be reduced, and as the satellites will orbit more quickly, they will be able to cover the whole of the planet. Starlink has been authorised to send 12,000 satellites into space. To put that into perspective, Earth currently has just 2,200 artificial satellites.There are already 600 Starlink satellites orbiting, with the first launch mission dating back to February 2018. Service is set to be available in North America by the end of the year, with “near global coverage of the populated world” promised for 2021. What about 5G? Are there environmental risks in sending all these satellites into orbit? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!

What is de-extinction?

What is de-extinction?

2022-05-1004:25

What is de-extinction? The process of de-extinction is all about bringing extinct species back to life. It became known in the 2010s, thanks to an ambitious plan from American geneticist George Church, who dreamed of resurrecting the woolly mammoth, an animal which has been extinct for 3700 years. Fast forward to the 2020s and Church’s bioscience startup Colossal is now eding closer towards making that a reality. As of March 2022, Colossal announced that it had raised a total of $75M for the project. Is it really possible to revive extinct animal species? Why would we want to bring extinct species back to life? How is the idea of de-extinction being received by the scientific community? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!

What is negationism? Historical negationism refers to the practice of manipulating historical records to deny that certain events happened, or distort the narrative around them. The term is relatively recent, having been coined by French historian Henry Rousso in 1987, relating to Holocaust Denial. Six million Jews were murdered by the Nazi regime during the Second World War. Holocaust denial is certainly one of the most well-known and common examples of negationism. But similar distortion strategies have been seen relating to other genocides and war crimes across the world.  Negationism is a crime in some countries like Germany, while elsewhere the approach is more cautious, due to questions about freedom of speech. Other laws can apply to negationist statements, if they are also of a hateful or discriminatory nature. So what exactly does negationism look like? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!

'' Body positivity has its roots in the fat acceptance movement of the late 1960s. Fat acceptance focuses on ending the culture of fat-shaming and discrimination against people based upon their size or body weight. '' '' The body images often portrayed in body-positive messages often still conform to a specific beauty ideal; many people simply don’t feel included in body positivity. ''

Wow, what an insightful episode. It may seem like a Ludacris thing to say, but I believe people (around the world) have been practicing jiko sekinin and just don't know it. There are always people ready to blame victims for their abuse, poor people for their lack of. Rather than the systems designed to continuously oppress.
