  3. What does it mean to be alive? Paul Nurse on defining ‘life’ | Science | The Guardian

    Is it possible to define the biological, chemical and physical functions that separate cells, plants and even humans from inanimate objects? In his new book, Paul Nurse, Nobel prize winner and director of the Francis Crick Institute, addresses a question that has long plagued both philosophers and scientists – what does it really mean to be alive? Speaking to Madeleine Finlay, Paul delves into why it’s important to understand the underlying principles of life, the role of science in society, and what life might look like on other planets

  8. Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers and Won the Vote w/ Martha S. Jones - MR Live - 9/14/20

    On today’s show: Brian Kilmeade and Tom Cotton defend Trump’s handling of Covid: “What do you expect the president, who’s spent 50 years in business, to know about this pandemic that’s the first thing like it we’ve seen since 1918?”

    Sam is joined by Martha S. Jones (@marthasjones_), Professor of History at Johns Hopkins University, to discuss her new book, ‘Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All.’ While most people think that all women got the right to vote with the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920, this is not true; most black women were effectively barred from voting until many decades later. In this book, Jones traces the work of activists including Sojourner Truth, Jarena Lee, Fannie Lou Hamer, and more, to show how black women fought both racism and sexism to advocate for their rights at the ballot box and beyond.

    On the fun half: Trump with Judge Jeanine on Saturday, on federal forces’ killing of a purported antifa sympathizer who allegedly killed someone in Portland: “This guy was a violent criminal…there has to be retribution.” Trump further expounds on the killing at rally: “We sent in the US marshals, it was taken care of in 15 minutes.” Trump speculates re: Biden’s use of performances-enhancing drugs.
