#318 Save Me a Spot, Will You?
Play • 11 min

Is it okay to save an open parking spot for someone, shooing away other drivers? Well, that’s what many Tel-Avivim do. It’s called לשמור חניה, and it happens all the time.

On this episode, Guy continues with the root שמר, explaining how to say ‘watch your mouth?’ in Hebrew and why you should never really say it.

Gush Katif: When Jews expelled Jews
In the final episode of the season, Noam Weissman delves into one of the most divisive events in Israel’s history — the disengagement from the Gaza Strip. He looks at the historical context, the political and religious debate leading up to the pull-out, the trauma it caused for Israelis, the effect that the disengagement had on the peace process and whether the results were worth the suffering it caused. ~~~~ The Unpacking Israeli History Podcast series is sponsored by Andrea and Larry Gill This episode is sponsored by Dr. Neil and Pam Weissman ~~~~ Learn more about Unpacked: Visit Unpacked on YouTube: Teaching about this topic?

Archaeology, death and COVID in the wild West Bank
Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing: Your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Today’s panel comprises Times of Israel diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and Palestinian affairs correspondent Aaron Boxerman, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan. We start today's show with a look at how Tehran appears to be jockeying for position ahead of nuclear deal talks by blackballing inspectors and threatening to increase enrichment. Berman tells us the dangerous risks that come with Iran's posturing. Boxerman gives us the lowdown on the murky West Bank "terror attack" that left the Palestinian family of Khaled Nofal grasping for answers. He then updates us on the latest West Bank coronavirus outbreak and ongoing efforts to vaccinate Palestinians and increased international pressure on Israel to participate. Plus, we look at how the destruction of an ancient wall at an Iron Age Israelite cultic site deep in Palestinian Authority-controlled Area B created a media maelstrom, as a right-wing campaign claimed that Palestinians are destroying Jewish heritage sites. And finally, we hear an excerpt from an interview with popular Israeli philosopher Dr. Micah Goodman from The Times of Israel's weekly "Times Will Tell" podcast on why the Talmud says you are commanded to get drunk on Purim. Discussed articles include: As Iran plays chicken with Biden, it also moves closer to the bomb Israel: Iran’s nuclear actions require immediate international response Murky West Bank ‘terror attack’ leaves Palestinian family grasping for answers Blinken said to push Ashkenazi to provide more vaccines to Palestinians West Bank enters 3rd wave with surging infections, no mass vaccination in sight Settlers take on West Bank archaeology as ancient ‘Joshua’ wall tumbles down Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

79. Hydrogen and the Energy Transition
Hydrogen and the Energy Transition Power systems around the world are changing. Renewable energy, mainly in the form of wind and solar generation, is being added everywhere, while more traditional forms of power, such as coal-fired and nuclear generation, are being retired from the grid. Meanwhile, natural gas-fired generation has taken the lead role in facilitating the transition by providing relatively quick ramping capability and stable baseload power to backup intermittent renewables. However, there is a lot of research and development work underway that could eventually push natural gas out of the mix. The reason is that gas, like other fossil fuels, releases CO2 and other emissions to the atmosphere, albeit at lower quantities than coal, fuel oil, and diesel on a per-kWh-generated basis. One of the potential supplements or replacements for natural gas could be hydrogen. The concept of a hydrogen economy is not new. It was first contemplated at least as far back as the 1970s, but the economics associated with producing hydrogen at the time made it impractical. That is changing as countries around the world implement decarbonization goals and the share of renewable energy in the power mix increases. Going forward, there are likely to be situations in which the supply of solar and wind power is high, but demand for the electricity is low. Rather than curtailing production, the surplus energy could be used to produce “green hydrogen” through electrolysis at a very reasonable cost. “There’s no CO2 emissions associated with [green hydrogen],” Megan Reusser, hydrogen development lead at Burns & McDonnell, said as a guest on The POWER Podcast. “So, bringing hydrogen to the forefront as a potential way to meet decarbonization goals, coupled with other types of renewable energy such as solar or wind, that’s what’s really giving [hydrogen] kind of a new life and a really big interest currently in the market.” Seeing the writing on the wall, the major gas turbine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have jumped aboard the hydrogen bandwagon. Siemens, GE, and Mitsubishi Power all have programs underway to make their combustion turbines 100% hydrogen capable. Their intentions are really designed to “future proof” investments in new power plants. “All the major OEMs have advanced-class gas turbines that are available and can blend up to 30% hydrogen. Where it gets interesting is you see and hear about the concept of hydrogen-ready for the future, and 100% hydrogen capable for the future,” Joey Mashek, business development manager at Burns & McDonnell, said on the podcast. “The plan to develop those technologies to get near 100%, or 100%, is still about 10 years. And I think all the OEMs will say they can do that and will do that, but it’ll be market driven.” Reusser said Burns & McDonnell has seen a lot of interest in hydrogen pilot projects. “By that I mean small-scale applications where people are just trying to understand how all this is going to come together,” she said. One example that she mentioned was a system installed by the Orlando Utilities Commission. “They are developing a pilot facility that has a little bit of everything. It’s got [an] electrolyzer, some storage, and a fuel cell. So, they’re kind of doing the whole spectrum of generating their hydrogen, storing their hydrogen, and then converting it back to power,” said Reusser. “Only thing I can say is, it’s exciting, really exciting time in the energy industry,” Mashek said.

Applying for dermatology residency as a student of color
To truly increase diversity in dermatology, students of color need to be encouraged that dermatology is achievable. In this resident takeover, Sophie A. Greenberg, MD (@sophiegreenberg), talks to Nicole A. Negbenebor, MD (Instagram: @naijalatte), about her personal experience navigating dermatology residency as an applicant of color. “Dermatology is such a wonderful field and I feel that it has had the ability to impact so many different people, different socioeconomic statuses, different backgrounds, but unfortunately the workforce does not reflect the population sometimes that they’re serving,” Dr. Negbenebor notes. They also discuss the importance of mentorship and networking opportunities, and Dr. Negbenebor offers advice on the dermatology residency application process. Article: Downloadable PDF: * * * Host: Sophie A. Greenberg, MD (department of dermatology, Columbia University Medical Center, New York) Guests: Nicole A.
