S6E6 Whose Side Are You On Anyways? The Canadian Response to the Suez Crisis
Play • 24 min
In 1956 the United Nations was in turmoil as an Anglo-French-Israeli alliance attacked and invaded Egypt. Global public opinion was strongly against this bold move and it seemed like there was no solution in sight. Until, Canadian diplomat Lester B. Pearson stepped in with a radical proposal, one that would set a template for UN Peacekeeping operations for the rest of the 20th century.

The travelling pandemic - SASS class
It’s time for the Super Awesome Science Show SASS Class on travel. I want to thank everyone who reached out to me. We received quite a few Emails and DMs about the episode although most of them centred on a few important questions. It shows that when it comes to travel, we all seem to have the same concerns and hopes for the future.  Our first guest is once again Ron St. John and he was the Director General of the Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response at the Public Health Agency of Canada. He also helped develop the Global Public Health Intelligence Network which helps health professionals rapidly detect, identify, assess, prevent and mitigate threats to human health. He now works to help inform the public of threats associated with travel with his company, Sitata. Over the last few months, we have received a few questions regarding the use of ultraviolet light as a disinfectant. To help answer those questions, I’ve reached out to Rick Dayton. He’s been involved in preventing infections in hospitals for decades and has worked extensively with UV light. I’m sure you will find this discussion enlightening and dispel a few myths regarding this technique for keeping our surfaces safe.  If you didn’t hear your question, make sure to contact me on Twitter, by Email and now, via voice message at Speakpipe.com/SASS. Just follow the link below and send me your thoughts.  Twitter: @JATetro Email: thegermguy@gmail.com Guests: Ron St. John https://www.sitata.com/en Rick Dayton https://patents.justia.com/inventor/roderick-dayton See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
