Show Notes

  • China has the world’s biggest Navy, the world’s biggest Coast Guard—and the world’s biggest fishing fleet. Evidence shows it’s actually using these fishermen as an extension of its navy, as part of an aggressive strategy to rule the seas.
  • Scientists in China cloned a couple of monkeys last month. They are trying to develop cloning technology in order to find cures to major diseases like Alzheimer’s—but in doing so, they are ignoring some important ethical considerations.
  • We’ll also talk about how Google Home doesn’t know who Jesus Christ is, how American women from the Democratic Party are responding to Hillary Clinton’s election loss last year by running for office in record numbers, a poll from the UK showing how few people are praying, and I’ll conclude the program by talking about how you can actually make yourself smarter.
