But the portrayal of these developments as mere “coups” hides the depth of popular anger, particularly against the French? What almost no one else is telling is the story of popular movements and organizations in West Africa who are supporting the military transition governments. Where do they come from? Could this spill over into other African countries? Where does pan-Africanism fit in? Where do Russia and China fit in, if at all?To discuss this and more, Rania Khalek was joined by Kambale Musavuli, an activist, writer, and analyst with the Center for Research on the Congo.  This is just the first half of this episode.

When I started business school at Columbia, I hadn't heard of McKinsey. The Firm recruited heavily there, so I found out about them, but little, since they were so secretive. I learned more from my classmates, that the business world held them in high regard. People wanted to work there.I interviewed and learned I got high reviews there, but I had entered business school to improve as an entrepreneur and stayed on my path. Several friends worked there and at its peers Boston Consulting Group and Bain, as well as other consulting firms like Deloitte.I heard about Michael's book while I was reading books on colonialism, especially Heart of Darkness and King Leopold's Ghost. Leopold crafted a public persona of a benevolent philanthropist helping end the Arab slave trade in the Congo while creating a huge, cruel slave state he profited from. Given what I knew about McKinsey, I read several reviews and watched videos of the authors. They showed a company crafting a benevolent philanthropic image while profiting from others' suffering---promoting tobacco, opiates, dictatorships, and, most relevant to sustainability, oil and petroleum states.Maybe I was looking for patterns that weren't there, but they made me wonder how much McKinsey and its peers had become a modern King Leopold. The book presents some devastating finds. It's well researched, as you can imagine how anything it revealed wrongly could prompt lawsuits. Beyond McKinsey's work with the world's most polluting corporations and nations, many McKinsey people transitioned to help run some of the world's most polluting companies, including previous guest and three-time Global Managing Director Dominic Barton.In our conversation, Michael reviews some of the book and shares back stories into how he and his coauthor Walt worked. We treated many areas of McKinsey's work, but focused on sustainability-related ones.Michael's column at the New York TimesHis book When McKinsey Comes to TownIts review in the Times: Book Review: “When McKinsey Comes to Town,” by Walt Bogdanich and Michael Forsythe Hosted on Acast.

Originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Betty moved to the United States with her father and younger sister when she was nine years old. When Betty was seventeen, her father went back to Africa, leaving Betty and her sister behind in foster care. Relying on her faith, Betty prayed for a loving home that would keep her with her sister. Betty feels incredibly lucky to have been placed with foster parents that she now calls family. Betty feels that foster kids are unfairly stereotyped as “bad kids” and she wants people to know that they are more than just a kid in the system. Now in college at West Texas A&M, Betty is studying mechanical engineering and running on the track team. Despite hard circumstances, Betty approaches life with a positive attitude, believing that “everyone has a beautiful smile.” If you are a former foster child who aged out of the system and want to share your story, email us at agedoutproject@gmail.com!

El nuevo mapa del gas

La ContraCrónica

No es ningún secreto decir que la guerra en Ucrania ha impactado de forma dramática en los suministros energéticos europeos. Las sanciones contra Rusia, la interrupción de los envíos de gas a través de los gasoductos y el tope al crudo ruso han hecho tambalearse el equilibrio energético europeo, dando lugar a nuevas alianzas y a la irrupción en el mercado de nuevos proveedores que tratan de aprovecharse de una situación tan anómala. Es un proceso que se encuentra en curso en estos momentos y que en unos años alumbrará un nuevo mapa energético que en poco se parecerá al de 2022. Antes de que se produjese la invasión de Ucrania, aproximadamente el 45% de las exportaciones de petróleo rusas iban dirigidas a los países de la Unión Europea. Era un gas barato que llegaba en barcos metaneros, pero, sobre todo, en gasoductos, algunos de nueva construcción como el Nordstream 1. Todo cambió en marzo de 2022. Aquel mes se produjo el primer corte de los envíos rusos de gas a Europa mediante los gasoductos. La intención de Vladimir Putin era convencer a los líderes europeos de que no les compensaba apoyar a Ucrania o, de lo contrario, se quedarían helados y a oscuras. Él tenía la llave del gas y podía emplearla a su antojo. Pero esta vez y para sorpresa del Kremlin el chantaje gasístico no funcionó dejando a Rusia con una considerable cantidad de gas y petróleo almacenado y sin clientes a quien vender la producción. Hubo de buscarlos a toda prisa y los encontró en Asia, pero tuvieron que aplicar un descuento en el precio. La Unión Europea no impuso sanciones sobre el gas consciente de que algunos Estados miembros como Alemania eran muy dependientes del gas natural ruso para la generación de electricidad y la calefacción. Pero el suministro vía gasoducto iba a menos poniendo en serios aprietos al Gobierno alemán de Olaf Scholz que acababa de tomar posesión del cargo. Para colmo de males Alemania no tenía aún ni una sola planta de regasificación para importar gas mediante metaneros, lo que complicaba aún más las cosas. De aquella situación de extrema gravedad ha pasado ya más de un año y, aunque en Europa no se han producido apagones, la energía ha subido sensiblemente de precio ocasionando malestar general entre los ciudadanos. En todo este tiempo el mercado energético ha ido reconfigurándose. Tan pronto como se supo que los suministros rusos podrían interrumpirse en cualquier momento, los líderes europeos salieron en busca de nuevos proveedores. Han emergido así algunas potencias energéticas que vivían a la sombra de Rusia como Argelia, una de las grandes beneficiadas de la invasión de Ucrania, ciertos países africanos como el Congo, o Azerbaiyán, situada al sur del Cáucaso y comunicada directamente con el mar Negro y el Mediterráneo a través de dos gasoductos que atraviesan Georgia y el mar Negro. La clave ahora parece ser diversificar lo más posible la cartera de proveedores para evitar una situación como la que se vivió hace año y medio. El objetivo final es prescindir por completo de Rusia, algo que todavía no han conseguido. Europa sigue transfiriendo miles de millones de euros anuales a Rusia por los cargamentos de gas natural licuado que llegan a los puertos. Ese dinero no sólo sirve para que el Kremlin mantenga el esfuerzo bélico en Ucrania, también mantiene a Vladimir Putin atornillado al poder.

Hi, I'm John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you're listening to Share Life Today. Just like adults, children need the hope of the Gospel. When they come to faith in Jesus, it changes everything for them. Jesus told His disciples in Luke 18, "Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, many churches attended a training to learn how to disciple the children of their churches with the Gospel. As practice for the training, they went house to house sharing the Gospel. Children all along the way decided to follow them up to the church where the workshop was being held. In two afternoons, they shared the Gospel to 418 children and adults; and among them, 355 made professions of Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Many of the parents of the children asked the Sunday school teachers to come back and share with the families as well! To learn how to share your faith, visit www.sharelife.today.

Karl Ammann uncovers wildlife trafficking, poaching and other forms of brutal exploitation of the planet's most iconic species. Circumventing red tape and challenging the status quo established by governments and supranational bodies, he discloses the shameful silence of international bodies and puts names and responsibilities behind the ongoing death of nature. He is a leader of the campaign that gained worldwide recognition of the bush meat crisis in Africa. He is an advisory director to several organizations, including The World Society for the Protection of Animals , The Cheetah Conservation Fund, and The Biosynergy Institute. After studying at St. Gall Graduate School of Economics and graduating from Cornell University's Hotel Management School in 1974, Karl worked on new project development and marketing for InterContinental Hotels, first in Kinshasa where he helped to organize the famous “Rumble in the Jungle” with Muhammad Ali, and then worldwide, traveling to over 100 countries. Karl first recognized the scale of the bush meat trade in 1988, while traveling on one of the legendary Zaire River boats. Since then, he carries a camera as his sidearm, shooting scenes of chimpanzees, gorillas and other wild animals being butchered for sale as expensive bush meat. One of his priorities has been researching the status of the apes in Africa and Asia, which exposed the bush meat trade and the illegal trafficking of orphans. In the process, he also initiated decade-long ape research and conservation projects in the northern Congo. More recently he produced a series of documentaries exposing the trade of wildlife products and live animals, illustrating the little known characteristics of the demand side. Ammann's reports and documentaries convinced the European Parliament and leaders of over twenty African states to sign a proclamation against the slaughter of apes and caused the government of Cameroon to convene a national conference on the illegal bush meat trade. For this work, he received the Dolly Green Award for Artistic Achievement at the 11th annual Genesis Awards banquet in Los Angeles in April 1997. Throughout his career, Ammann has won a wide range of awards, including TIME Magazine's Heroes of the Environment. https://karlammann.com/about/ https://www.karlammann.ch/ammann/deutsch https://www.thetigermafia.co/ karl@karlammann.ch Sign up for 10% off of Shrink Rap Radio CE credits at the Zur Institute

Vous y racontez comment vous avez fait, au Mexique, en 1992, la rencontre du Padre Francisco van der Hoff, le cofondateur du premier label de commerce équitable « Max Havelaar ». C'est lui qui vous a convaincu du bien-fondé de ce modèle, fondé sur des partenariats pluriannuels avec des coopératives de petits producteurs qui garantissent des prix rémunérateurs pour les producteurs et valorisent des modes de production respectueux de l'environnement. Malongo est aujourd'hui le premier intervenant des cafés issus du commerce équitable et de l'agriculture biologique. Cette entreprise de torréfaction, fondée à Nice en 1934, emploie près de 400 collaborateurs et génère plus de 110M€ de chiffre d'affaires, selon les chiffres de 2019. 66% de son volume de café importé est certifié « Max Havelaar » et 26% est certifié « agriculture biologique ». L'entreprise travaille avec 16 pays producteurs de café équitable et reverse chaque année aux coopératives plusieurs millions d'euros de primes bio et développement. Plus récemment, Malongo s'est illustré sur un autre segment de l'économie responsable, en relocalisant intégralement la fabrication de sa machine à café à La Roche-sur-Yon, en Vendée. Le marché de l'alimentation « responsable » subit aujourd'hui les contrecoups de l'envolée des prix à la consommation. Dans sa dernière note de conjoncture en date du 14 avril, l'INSEE relève ainsi que les prix à la consommation ont augmenté, au mois de mars 2023, de 5.7% sur un an. Selon le quatrième baromètre de la transition alimentaire, réalisé par OpinionWay, le prix est devenu le critère prioritaire lors du passage en caisse pour sept Français sur dix. Cela représente une hausse de 7 points en un an et de 10 points en deux ans. Cette tendance concerne cependant moins certains groupes de la population, comme les 18-24 ans qui restent particulièrement sensibles à l'empreinte écologique de leur alimentation. Le modèle du commerce équitable doit également répondre aux critiques sur la multiplication des labels, qui entretient selon ses détracteurs l'opacité sur les cahiers des charges et sur le respect effectif de celui-ci par les producteurs. Certains labels ont été accusés de faciliter le « socialwashing » des entreprises, dans un contexte où le commerce équitable gagne des parts de marché et a franchi la barre des 2 milliards d'euro de vente en France en 2021. Des voix s'élèvent également pour dénoncer l'impact écologique de ce système et privilégient les circuits courts, la production locale et la consommation de saison. Face à ces difficultés, le chercheur à l'Institut du développement durable et des relations internationales (IDDRI) Frédéric Amiel pense que le commerce équitable doit « se repenser » pour « aller plus loin » et propose à cette fin le développement de clauses de « garantie d'achat » améliorant la visibilité à moyen-terme des producteurs et l'assouplissement de la réglementation fiscale sur les produits équitables importés.Chaque semaine, Philippe Meyer anime une conversation d'analyse politique, argumentée et courtoise, sur des thèmes nationaux et internationaux liés à l'actualité.

The capital city of Kinshasa is war-torn and violent, prone to constant uprisings and full of security checkpoints. Fires and gunfights rage day and night. Michael McClung on why the script should be made into a film: We are still dealing with both the political ramifications, and the resource predation, in sub-Saharan Africa today. The events shown in KISS OF DARKNESS have affected hundreds of millions over the decades, and there has been virtually no attention paid (or restitution demanded) for the CIA'S role in this tragedy.

A Small Voice: Conversations With Photographers

Ian Berry was born in 1934 in Lancashire, England. He made his reputation in South Africa, where he worked for the Daily Mail and later for Drum magazine. He was the only photographer to document the massacre at Sharpeville in 1960, and his photographs were used in the trial to prove the victims' innocence.Henri Cartier-Bresson invited Ian to join Magnum in 1962, when he was based in Paris. He moved to London in 1964 to become the first contract photographer for the Observer Magazine. Since then assignments have taken him around the world: he has documented Russia's invasion of Czechoslovakia; conflicts in Israel, Ireland, Vietnam and the Congo; famine in Ethiopia; and apartheid in South Africa. The major body of work produced in South Africa is represented in two of his books: Black and Whites: L'Afrique du Sud and Living Apart (1996).Important editorial assignments have included work for National Geographic, Fortune, Stern, Geo, national Sunday magazines, Esquire, Paris-Match and Life. Berry has also reported on the political and social transformations in China and the former USSR. Recent projects have involved tracing the route of the Silk Road through Turkey, Iran and southern Central Asia to northern China for Conde Nast Traveler, photographing Berlin for a Stern supplement, the Three Gorges Dam project in China for the Telegraph Magazine, Greenland for a book on climate control and child slavery in Africa.Ian's recent book, Water (GOST Books, 2022), brings together many classic images from Ian's extensive archive with material shot over the course of 15 years travelling the globe to document the inextricable links between landscape, life and water. This new book brings together a selection of the resulting images which collectively tell the story of man's complex relationship with water — at a time when climate change demonstrates just how precariously water and life are intertwined. In episode 213, Ian discusses, among other things:How all the pics in Water came to be used as B&WHow the project came aboutHow he got into photographyHow he came to be the only photographer at the Sharpeville MassacreThe importance of luckGetting into Magnum after a tea with HCB and a disasterous first meetingChanges in Magnum over the years - and photography in generalThe controversy over David Allan Harvey and the subsequent action by MagnumEverything being ‘too woke'Learining from other people and looking at contact sheets Referenced:Stuart SmithAbbasRoger MaddenDrum MagazineTom HopkinsonThe Sharpeville MassacreMichele Chevalier (Visa)Marc RiboudReni BurriHenri Cartier BressonBurt GlinnPeter DenchDavid Allan HarveySteve McCurryBruce DavidsonPhilip Jones GriffithsGilles PeressBruno BarbeyWerner Bischof Website | Instgram“I brought along my contact sheets which Henri spent ages going through.

The most important battles are not being fought in the octagon, on wrestling mats, or in the boxing ring – they are taking place at home, in the workplace, and in the hidden sanctuaries of those who have long been forgotten. And today's guest, MMA fighter-turned-humanitarian Justin Wren, has answered an innate yet magical call to be a champion for those who cannot fight for themselves. Justin is the founder of Fight for the Forgotten, an NPO dedicated to defending the weak, loving the unloved, and empowering the voiceless worldwide. Coupled with his inspirational podcast, Overcome (which focuses on overcoming childhood trauma to find your purpose), Justin uses his platforms to give voice to those who can't speak for themselves while actually implementing long-term projects of sustainability and opportunity. We begin our riveting conversation with Justin detailing his relationship with Joe Rogan and how Joe has helped him widen his audience, why vulnerability and synchronicity were the keys to surviving the Brooklyn Bridge, why he decided to reach out to Joe and other platforms to share his story, and the story of his life and how he found himself in a battle with depression and addiction. Our guest also explains how bullying led him to wrestling and how the sport ultimately gave him all the confidence in the world! Then, we hear all about Justin's trip to The Congo, including the supernatural vision that led him to Africa, his harrowing journey flying into the war-torn area, how this experience changed his perception of success and everything that Justin remembers about the endearing Bambuti (Mbuti) Pygmy's and other African tribes.Justin has so many wonderful stories to share, and after his invigorating tales of passion and perseverance, we have just enough time for him to walk us through the incredible work being done by his organization, Fight for the Forgotten, and how it's become the master of building wells for communities in need. You are absolutely going to love this one, so press play now!

Les experts s'accordent à dire que le réchauffement climatique aura un impact important sur la santé humaine. Ainsi, selon une étude de 2022, une hausse moyenne de la température de 2°C pourrait entraîner, durant les jours les plus chauds, une augmentation de plus de 40 % de la mortalité. Ainsi, les décès liés aux épisodes de canicule feraient partie des quatre principales causes de mortalité à l'horizon 2050. Mais tous les pays seront-ils affectés de la même façon ? Une très récente étude, datant de cette année, répond par la négative à cette question. En effet, les habitants des pays du Nord, qui englobent l'Europe, l'Amérique du Nord et certaines régions développées d'Asie, souffriraient moins des conséquences du réchauffement climatique que ceux des pays du Sud. Et pourtant, les pays du Nord, qui ne représentent que 14 % de la population mondiale, sont responsables de plus de 90 % des émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Les grandes métropoles pas épargnées par la canicule Dans les pays tropicaux, où règne une chaleur humide toute l'année, une légère hausse moyenne des températures se fera plus sentir que dans des pays tempérés. Par ailleurs, les effets cumulés de la chaleur et de la pauvreté font de certains pays africains, comme la Guinée équatoriale ou la République démocratique du Congo, des zones plus sensibles aux conséquences délétères du réchauffement climatiques. Les grandes métropoles ne seront pas non plus épargnées, même dans les pays du Nord. Selon certains experts, New York pourrait ainsi connaître, d'ici 2100, environ 50 jours de chaleur potentiellement mortelle. De son côté, Los Angeles en connaîtrait une trentaine et Sydney, en Australie, environ 20. Mais les habitants de Houston, au Texas, où le climat est déjà chaud et humide, devraient supporter environ 90 jours de chaleur intolérable. Bien entendu, cette chaleur n'atteint pas tout le monde de la même façon. Les personnes capables de se protéger contre des températures accablantes, en faisant notamment installer des systèmes efficaces d'air conditionné, seront moins affectées que des gens moins fortunés.

The world is moving toward electric vehicles. In Part 3 of our series on the hidden toll of this historic transition, business reporter Evan Halper breaks down this industrial shift and the concerns it brings over human and environmental costs.Read more:States such as California and New York are moving to ban the sale of new gas-powered cars over the next decade. Meanwhile, President Biden wants at least half of new car sales to be electric by 2030.But the race to reduce our carbon footprint has hidden tolls. Workers in South Africa mining for manganese – an essential mineral for electric car batteries – are experiencing serious health problems. There are also geopolitical ramifications, with tensions in Afghanistan, where an untapped trove of lithium ore is beginning to garner interest from both the Taliban and Chinese prospectors. Today on “Post Reports,” Halper tells us how regulators, advocates and companies are responding to growing concerns over electric vehicle manufacturing. More from The Post's bigger series, “Clean Cars, Hidden Toll”:In the scramble for EV metals, a health threat to workers often goes unaddressed. In the race for lithium, Afghanistan is of interest to the Taliban and Chinese prospectors.To meet EV demand, industry turns to technology long-deemed hazardous. Despite reforms, mining for EV metals in Congo exacts steep cost on workers. On the frontier of new “gold rush,” the quest for coveted EV metals yields misery. The underbelly of electric vehicles. Minerals are crucial for electric cars and wind turbines. Some worry whether we have enough.
