A team of MIT scientists have generated a detailed, three-dimensional "atlas" of the largest oxygen-deficient zones (ODZ) in the tropical Pacific. And though these ODZs make up less than 1 percent of the ocean’s total volume, they are a significant source of nitrous oxide, a potent greenhouse gas.Read the article: https://news.mit.edu/2021/oxygen-d…

There was a bill on the books that would have made 90% of eggs illegal to sell in MA starting in January. All it needed was some legislators to fix it, and the fix was approved by the Humane Society, "Big Egg", and everyone else. But because only a tiny handful of people are actually allowed to touch any legislation, this has waited till the last m…
 
A novel approach to testing for the presence of the virus that causes Covid-19 may lead to tests that are faster, less expensive, and potentially less prone to erroneous results than existing detection methods. Though the work, based on quantum effects, is still theoretical, these detectors could potentially be adapted to detect virtually any virus…

If the pro-Uber ballot question succeeds in Massachusetts, it won't just be the end of workers rights for driving gig workers -- it will likely mean that other industries will follow suit in taking away workers' rights. And these greedy tech giants are likely to spend tens of millions of dollars on a misinformation campaign. We hear from Jonathan P…
 
Today we go over what the State House worked on this year. If we don't count the Climate bill that they really should have finished last session, or redistricting, or spending the extra federal ARPA money, they mainly took on one thing: sports betting!! We talk about how the whole cycle that forces votes on bills to the very end of even years block…

Today we speak with Kristina Mensik from Democracy Behind Bars. In this truly horrifying but important discussion, you'll hear how we jail more people per capita than any other nation on earth, how we charge them exorbitant prices just to get enough food to eat, and then make them work for less than a dollar an hour. And that's not even the meat of…
 
MIT researchers have now incorporated certain social interactions into a framework for robotics, enabling machines to understand what it means to help or hinder one another, and to learn to perform these social behaviors on their own.Read the article: https://news.mit.edu/2021/robots-social-skills-1105…
 
Good sleep can be hard to come by. But a new study by researchers at MIT and the University of São Paulo in Brazil finds that if you can make up for lost sleep, even for just a few weekend hours, the extra zzz’s could help reduce fatigue-induced clumsiness, at least in how you walk.Read the article: https://news.mit.edu/2021/lack-sleep-walk-1026…
 
Today we talk about yesterday's elections. What happened in Boston, Malden, Holyoke, Worcester, Medford, and other cities? How did Lowell's switch to districts affect diversity? Did slate-bashing, racist mailers, or fake fliers pretending to come from progressive organizations ruin our chances? (Spoiler alert -- no they did not!) Jordan Berg Powers…
 
Today we talk with Ben Ewen-Campen about Home Rule Petitions. Essentially, there are whole policy areas that city councils are not allowed to pass, but must instead beg the State House to approve. We talk about housing policies that are clearly needed in Somerville, but disappear into the State House where no one can be held accountable because the…
 
Chris, Ilyas and Jamie discuss the biggest story no one has ever talked about with this case, chemists from Hinton, Amherst and the State Police Labs intentionally falsely classifying drugs to send people who they know to be innocent to jail. While we have touched upon this subject in previous episodes, we haven't gone over exactly what happened un…
 
After 13 years of no action on climate change, the MA State House finally passed a bill committing to net zero carbon emissions. After vetoing this bill (which thankfully later passed when our supermajorities of Dems in both houses stood their ground), the Baker administration has missed many of the legislated deadlines required in the bill. Cabell…
 
Harriotte Ranvig of Mass ADAPT speaks about the fight to get more funding for people to live independently. Under COVID, our system of forcing people to live in nursing homes has been catastrophic.

We're in the season of hearings! Every bill in the State House has a hearing, most of them happening this fall. We discuss why hearings are designed to have little impact on the opinions of state reps, and how you can use hearings differently to help get your policies passed. Jordan Berg Powers, Jonathan Cohn, and Anna Callahan chat about Massachus…
 
Engineers at MIT have developed a new approach to removing lead or other heavy-metal contaminants from water, in a process that they say is far more energy-efficient than any other currently used system, though there are others under development that come close. Ultimately, it might be used to treat lead-contaminated water supplies at the home leve…

Jamie, Ilyas and Chris review lawyer Nathan Tamulis' Feburary 2016 response to the Massachusetts Office of the Inspector General Supplemental Report. The sheer amount of contradictions, half truths and outright falsehoods that exist in this report is depressingly unsurprising.Par Jamie Folk
 
Electrochemical reactions that are accelerated using catalysts lie at the heart of many processes for making and using fuels, chemicals, and materials — including storing electricity from renewable energy sources in chemical bonds, an important capability for decarbonizing transportation fuels. Now, research at MIT could open the door to ways of ma…
 
In the face of grave concerns about misinformation, social media networks and news organizations often employ fact-checkers to sort the real from the false. But fact-checkers can only assess a small portion of the stories floating around online. A new study by MIT researchers suggests an alternate approach: Crowdsourced accuracy judgements from gro…
