Unelected Brexit panjandrum David Frost gets ready to blow up the Northern Ireland deal that he and Johnson sold to the public. Is Poland really shaping up to leave the EU? The first ‘Covid: Lessons Learned' report looms into view. Plus bizarre elections in the Czech Republic, Facebook in the dock and an old-fashioned nuclear spy scandal. Arthur Snell starts your week. “Frost and Johnson's strategy has been to pretend it's someone else's deal and that it needs to be renegotiated." “From a very dark tactical perspective, the return of the threat of violence in Ireland would be to Johnson and Frost's advantage.” “Facebook has run out of road, it doesn't really have any political friends anymore.”Presented and produced by Andrew Harrison.

As Gladys Berejiklian leaves office and Andrej Babis fights to defend his, this week's episode looks at a turbulent week in New South Wales politics and looks ahead to the upcoming Czech Chamber of Deputies elections. After three resignations, New South Wales is looking at three imminent by-elections and, after losing a popular state Premier, the Liberal/National Coalition will be going into the federal election next year and state election in 2023 with two new state leaders. What provoked this slew of resignations? And how will Scott Morrison and Canberra be affected by this week? With Czech polls still open at the time of recording, Sam and Chern take the opportunity to look at the state of the parties in the Czech Republic as their campaign comes to a close. Andrej Babis and ANO are fighting to hold on to power in Prague as the opposition parties have created large electoral alliances to try and stop them. Has Babis run out of political allies in the Chamber of Deputies? What unites the seemingly broad conservative SPOLU alliance? Why have the Pirate Party been particularly strong in Czechia? All these questions and more answered in this week's episode. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ballot-to-talk-about/message

Revelations from nearly 12 million leaked confidential financial records have thrown light on the concealed wealth of powerful public figures around the world. How do they hide their money, and why is this information important? The Pandora Papers were released this week showing that Jordan's King - Abdullah II amassed $100 million in property including homes in The United States and London. An alleged mistress of Vladimir Putin, Russia's leader managed to covertly buy a luxury residence in Monaco. Tony & Cherie Blair used a company structure avoiding paying Stamp duty on their London home. The Czech Republic's prime minister, an anticorruption crusader, secretly acquired a French Riviera estate.Revelations from the Pandora Papers report, a collaboration by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and media partners that include The Washington Post and The Guardian, began reverberating through and beyond the financial world of the rich and powerful almost immediately after the authors started releasing them on Sunday. In Today's video we look at what data was released, and to what extent does it matter.

Investor worries over growth and inflation have revived the term stagflation—but with growth indicators historically solid, is it an accurate description?----- Transcript -----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Andrew Sheets, Chief Cross-Asset Strategist for Morgan Stanley. Along with my colleagues, bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about trends across the global investment landscape and how we put those ideas together. It's Friday, October 8th at 2:00 p.m. in London. Near where I live in London, service stations are out of petrol - or to my fellow Americans, the gas stations are out of gas. In Europe, natural gas prices have roughly tripled in the last three months. Year-over-year, Consumer Price Inflation has risen 5.3% in the United States, 5.8% in Poland, 7.4% in Russia, and 9.7% in Brazil. It's not hard to see why one term seems to come up again and again in our conversations with investors: stagflation. Stagflation, broadly, is the idea that you get very weak growth, but also higher inflation together. Yet it's equally hard to miss in these conversations that while this term is widely cited, it's often ill defined. If stagflation means the 1970s, a time of wage price spirals and high unemployment, this clearly isn't it. Unemployment is falling around the world, and inflation markets imply pressures will moderate over time, rather than spiral higher. Market pricing is also very different. Over the last 100 years, the 1970s represented an all-time high in nominal interest rates and an all-time low in equity valuations. Today, it's the opposite. We're near a record low in yields and a record high in those valuations. Instead, what if we say that stagflation is a period where inflation expectations are rising, and growth is slowing? That's an easier, broader definition to apply, but even that hasn't really been happening. In the U.S., market expectations for inflation are roughly where they were in early June. U.S. economic data remains solid. The economic data is a little bit more mixed in Europe, but even here, growth indicators generally remain historically strong. So this clearly isn't a simple story, but we do think there are three takeaways for investors. First, recall that stagflation was also a very hot market topic in 2004/2005. Growth and markets had bounced back sharply in 2003, but by mid 2004, the rate of change on that growth had started to slow. And then energy prices rose. By spring 2005, the market started to worry that it could be the worst of both worlds. In April of that year, U.S. consumer price inflation hit 3.5% while measures of growth stalled. Stagflation graced the cover of the Economist magazine and the editorial pages in the New York Times. Equity valuations fell throughout 2004/2005 even as earnings rose, consistent with the current forecast that my colleague Michael Wilson and our U.S. Equity Strategy team. The second important point is that inflation is already showing up and impacting monetary policy. In just the last three weeks, central banks have increased interest rates by +25bp in New Zealand, +25bp in Russia, +50bp and Peru, +50bp in Poland, +75bp in the Czech Republic and +100bp in Brazil. That's a lot of activity. And all of this is keeping my colleagues busy and also creating opportunity in these markets. Third, while stagflation means different things to different people, past periods of rising inflation and slowing growth have often had one thing in common: higher energy prices. As such, we think some of the best cross-asset hedges for stagflation lie in the energy space. The market is very focused on stagflation; it just hasn't quite decided what that term really means. The 1970s are a long way away from our expectations or market pricing. Scenarios of slower growth and rising inflation clash with our economic forecasts of, well, the opposite. And recent moves in inflation expectations and other growth indicators don't fit this story as nicely as one would otherwise think. Instead, we think investors should focus on three things: 2005 is an interesting and rather recent example of a stagflation scare after a mid-cycle transition. Inflation is impacting central banks, creating movement and opportunity. And finally, the energy sector provides a potentially useful hedge against scenarios where the current disruption is more persistent. Now, with that out of the way, I'm off to find some petrol.

Vera Chytilová was the most important woman director of the Czechoslovak New Wave – although she remains relatively unknown outside of Central Europe. As the first female student of the prestigious FAMU film school in Prague, she had to fight in order to do things her own way. During the creative explosion of the Czechoslovak New Wave, she made her most well known film ‘Daisies' (1966) – a surrealist pop-art comedy, about two young women who set their minds on creating humorous destruction around them. The 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion of her country stopped Chytilová's promising career dead in its tracks, but unlike Miloś Forman (‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', 1975) and others, she refused to emigrate, despite the huge personal cost. After seven years of professional exile, she was allowed to return to filmmaking in the late 1970s, once again finding critical success. After the privatisation of the Czech film industry in the 1990s, she was one of the first to adapt with ‘The Inheritance' (1992) – a scathing satire on the effect free-for-all capitalism was having on her fellow citizens. Having never compromised on her beliefs, she remained a moral authority in her country until her death in 2014, and continues to inspire those lucky enough to come across her films for the first time.

The Czech election this week will decide whether embattled billionaire businessman Andrej Babis gets another four-year term as Prime Minister. He's under pressure from new revelations in the Pandora papers – seeming to show that he was involved in the purchase of 16 properties on the French Riviera using offshore companies. Mr Babis has denied any wrongdoing: “I don't own any property in France,” he said. “It's nasty, false accusations that are meant to influence the election.” He has always governed in coalition – but he now faces a tough challenge from the centre-right opposition and also has the far-right nipping at his heels. So which way are the Czechs heading? Rob Cameron reports from Prague. Over the past two months – like many international organisations - the BBC has been busy organising a way out of Afghanistan for many of its staff in the country and trying to get them to places of safety – in the UK and elsewhere. Karim Haidari was one of them. After a nerve-wracking three days spent waiting at Kabul airport, he and his family managed to fly out. They are now safe in Britain – but there's a lot for him to think about as they try to start their lives again. How can we feed the world – on a planet with finite resources and a growing number of people? Moreover, more of those people are eating more meat and fish – and those animals in turn need feeding, and protein, to grow. At the moment, soy and fishmeal are the main sources of protein for animal feed – but the demand for soy has been linked to deforestation in South America, while the fishmeal trade helps drive over-fishing in the oceans. So now manufacturers are looking for alternative sources of protein. The use of insects has been permitted in fish feed for years, but the European Union recently decided to allow them in poultry and pig feed too. Emilie Filou went to visit an ultra-modern bug farm in France where the animals they raise might be tiny, but the plans and the ambition are very big indeed. The Aland Islands in the Baltic Sea have been settled for over seven thousand years –they're full of Neolithic remains, showing how their earliest inhabitants hunted seals and birds there. But the islands have changed hands many times since then over their history – sometimes being treated as little more than bargaining chips by their larger neighbours. These days they enjoy a quirky – and carefully negotiated – sort of independence. Mark Stratton asked some of the islanders who they feel closest to in today's Europe. Smell and taste are the most intimate and evocative of the senses – with a startling power to transport us to other times and places. Reha Kansara recently explored some of her family history in Kenya – and part of her quest centred on a childhood favourite - the delicious potato fritter known as the Maru Bhajia. Would it taste as good in its birthplace in Nairobi? And what else was on the menu during her journeys into Kenya's past?
In this episode of .think atlantic, IRI's Thibault Muzergues is joined by Jiří Pehe to discuss the Czech general elections which will be held on October 8th and 9th. Jiří Pehe is Director of New York University in Prague, and head of NYU's Prague Institute for Democracy. He arrived in the US as a political refugee in the early 1980s, and graduated from Columbia University in 1985. He worked at Freedom House and then became Director of Central European Research at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. Returning to Prague, he joined Václav Havel's Cabinet as Director of the Political Department and later served as his personal advisor. Jiří is also the author of hundreds of analytical studies as well as several books on developments in Central and Eastern Europe, focusing especially on transitions to democracy. Are these elections a referendum on Prime Minister Andrej Babiš? How to explain the fall of Pirates/Mayors coalition? What kind of coalitions are expected after the elections? What is the position of Czech Republic regarding the EU at the moment? What about its foreign policy made of different voices? Thibault and his guest discuss all these questions – and much more.

Samantha Besson Droit international des institutions Collège de France Année 2021-2022 Ivan Krastev - Conférencier invité - Cycle europe du Collège de France : L'angoisse du déclin. Démocratie, démographie et clivage Est-Ouest en Europe Democratization and Ethnic (De)Homogenization The second lecture focuses on the centrality of the demographic factor in explaining the transformation of European liberal democracies and European welfare states. It argues that while until recently, the relationship between democracy and demography was usually thought of in Malthusian terms (too many people and not enough resources), the demographic shock voiced in parts of Europe today is radically different. It is caused by political fears of demographic decline, depopulation, and a widening gap in opportunities and social attitudes between metropolitan centers and outlying areas. The picture is especially bleak in Central and Eastern Europe, where fertility is low and outmigration is high. The United Nations estimates that since the 1990s, the nations of this region have lost about 6 percent of their collective population, or about eighteen-million persons. If these people formed a country, it would be nearly as populous as the Czech Republic and Hungary combined. The lecture discusses the diverging paths of ethnic homogenization and ethnic diversity in the West of Europe and the East of Europe since World War I and its significance in explaining the nature of Central European populism of today.
Hayden Rensner, serving the Lord in the Czech Republic with the LCMS Office of International Mission, joins Andy and Sarah to talk about what led her to the mission field, the preparations she's been doing in order to deploy to the field, and what she's looking forward to doing when she arrives in the Czech Republic.

Hooot topic today my love, why and how I stop drinking alcohol over 2 years ago If you would have told me three years ago that I would quit drinking wine I would not believe you. I even took a sense of pride in drinking wine as I come from the wine region, southern Moravia in Czech Republic, and lived in Spain. Everyone around me was drinking and smoking so for me it was just so normalized that I didn't even think about it. When I was going to college here in the USA working on my biz associate degree I was feeling so rushed and stressed with smoking cigarettes that the biggest gift I could give myself for my 28 year birthday was going to a hypnotherapy session to quit smoking. And I haven't smoked ever since. With alcohol it was different. It is something that I used to go to relax, to unwind, to create space for myself. Yet when we two years ago celebrated 4th of July in our cabin in Northern California and instead of desired peace I was listening to drunk neighbors for days my patience was out! My husband Christopher did an exercise on me from Neurolinguistic Programming where he swapped how I felt about beer (I don't like beer) with how I felt about wine. I never had a sip of alcohol from then. It truly seems to me that as we embark on our personal development journey and the spiritual journey we don't look so much at WHAT we are doing but WHY we are doing them. And I knew that why I drank didn't feel good to me anymore. Two main reasons why I stopped drinking alcohol: Physical When your body is processing, detoxing alcohol, which is poison for it, it shuts everything off. Your immune system, your detox system, your fat burning. All is shut off and only survivors are turned on. Who wants to live as a survivor?? Spiritual I believe we are spirits having a human experience. And to experience this life we get to be connected not to try to numb and disconnect, which is what alcohol is doing. It lowers your vibration and disconnects you from the higher power. Not completely, you can't ever pinch yourself completely off, yet disconnect so you don't feel like the pure vessel you came here to be. This is why and how I quit and it feels really great to me. You get to create your own way. Ask yourself: Why do I drink? When do I drink? Is drinking really my idea? Do I feel aligned, alive and abundant when and after I drink? Let me know your thoughts and feelings on this subject. Just connect with me on Instagram: www.instagram.com/petiakolibova or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org Remember, I love you, I see you, I receive you!

Everyone knows we're “more divided than ever,” and everyone's arguing these days, but nobody seems to be GOOD at it. We all seem to suck at convincing people that we're right. Well, except for Neal Katyal, former acting Solicitor General, who's here to instruct us on the lost art of persuasion. And speaking of persuasion, “Eat, Pray, Love” tries to win us over — does it succeed? And then it's our turn to go a-wooing, as we attempt to win back the love of the Czech Republic.
