[01:00:09] Not being "the sage on the stage, but being the guide from the side". [01:01:17] Anna's key observations teaching in such a wide variety of environments. [01:01:48] "Every child will make progress in my care… I am proud to be their teacher, and every child has impacted my journey." [01:06:18] Always looking for what a child can do. [01:07:40] Believing in yourself and each other is powerful. [01:09:53] Bonus Question 1: What hobby or interest do you have that is most unrelated to your field of work? [01:12:21] Bonus Question 2: Which childhood book holds the strongest memories for you? [01:14:35] Perspective on others' experiences. [01:17:59] Bonus Question 3: What advice you would give someone who wants to do what you do? Or what advice should they ignore? [01:18:07] It's about passion.

We look at the metrics with the Financial Times' Peter Foster that tell us what Brexit has done to growth.

Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala thrives on challenge. As the first woman and first African to serve as Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Dr. Ngozi is responsible for negotiating seemingly impossible deals on global finance, trade, sustainability, and social welfare. We talk with her about her sense of purpose, values, and her firm belief in the power of trade to lift developing countries out of poverty and help them to achieve economic growth and sustainable development. We'll also discuss another key leadership attribute: courage – in Dr. Ngozi's case, growing up in war-torn Nigeria, taking on some of the world's most consequential roles in the public sector, and persevering in her cause even when her mother's kidnappers demanded Dr. Ngozi resign.

El precio de la electricidad ha dado un respiro en España. El MWh ha bajado a niveles que no se veían desde hace más de un año, hasta los 88 euros. Según explica Joan Groizard, director general del Instituto para la Diversificación y el Ahorro de la Energía (IDAE), se debe a la combinación de dos factores: "Hemos hecho los deberes, se han incrementado las reservas de gas y, por tanto, ha bajado el precio. Y Armand, la primera borrasca de la temporada, está generando muchísimo viento, lo que significa muchísima más generación eólica". Con todo, advierte de que se trata de una situación puntual y coyuntural: "Tenemos que seguir instalando renovables para que esto no sea un espejismo, sino la nueva normalidad". Groizard ofrece un mensaje tranquilizador y aclara que en España se descarta cualquier tipo de racionamiento o corte del suministro: "No es así en otros países, con una mayor dependencia de gas ruso y una mayor exposición al impacto del invierno".El aumento de las reservas de gas ha provocado que la capacidad de almacenaje llegue a su límite y los metaneros no puedan descargar en España, algo que Groizard achaca a nuestras limitadas capacidades para intercambiar gas con el resto de Europa: "Ya hemos reforzado la infarestructura existente a día de hoy con Francia y estamos estudiando como compartir gas con Italia a través de metaneros más pequeños". Por último, pone en valor la efectividad del mecanismo ibérico: "Ha permitidio ahorrar ya prácticamente 3.000 millones de euros al conjunto de los consumidores". Por ello, cree recomendable estandarizar la forma en que las comercializadoras reflejan la compensación en la factura, con el objetivo de evitar confusiones entre los consumidores.Escuchar audio

Last week, the presidential candidate of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar came under fire for a speech in which he appeared to argue that the north does not need an Igbo or Yoruba president, but rather "someone from the north." After some delay, the Labour Party and its Presidential candidate Peter Obi and Vice President Yusuf Datti-Ahmed have inaugurated their presidential campaign council, which is led by Mohammed Zarewa as Chairman and Doyin Okupe as Director-General. After returning to the country, the APC's Bola Tinubu has made his presence felt through a series of speeches and gaffes.

One of the mining industry's favorite sayings is "If it can't be grown, it must be mined". However, mining plays an important role in agriculture too! For this special release episode of On the Rocks, Prospector founder Emily King chats with Bram Govaerts, Director General a.i. of CIMMYT. This conversation began during a panel discussion about the Russia & Ukraine War, and how it affected the supply chain of many industries. In this episode we dive deeper into how the conflict is still affecting the mining and agriculture industries, as well as CIMMYT's work to help those caught up in conflicts, natural disasters, and more. Mining and agriculture currently seem to work in parallels, following similar paths but not quite meeting up. Emily and Bram chat about ideas to bring the two natural resource sectors together, and how doing so could help ESG commitments. It might be time for a new saying as mining and agriculture continue to grow together! Listen to the full episode below or on your favorite podcast platforms!Many minerals and metals are needed in the agriculture industry, including iron for equipment and phosphate for fertilizer.

We are in the middle of a series of discussions related to cancer care, treatment improvements, data management in oncology, and the promise of AI to find the right treatment for the right patient in the fastest possible manner. As mentioned by Xose M. Fernandez, a genomicist and former chief data officer at Institute Curie, a faster diagnosis could lead to less aggressive treatment and better patient outcomes.  We covered many perspectives so far: accessibility and cost of cancer treatments in the US and Canada in the first episode, genetics, data management, and the science of cancer; we talked about AI treatments and challenges in designing clinical trials in personalized medicine. This episode focuses on the consequences cancer diagnosis has after patients are cured. Many cancer survivors in long-term remission face restricted access to financial services because of their medical history. Some EU countries have already implemented the right to be forgotten - a right for patients not to disclose their medical history. Changes across Europe are happening slowly and given the rising incidence of cancer on the one hand, and scientific advances on the other, we need improvement in the quality of life of patients after they are cured. In this episode, you will hear from dr. Francoise Meunier,  dr. Francoise Meunier,  member of the Belgian Royal Academy of Medicine, former Director General of European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer, and a Scientific Member of the European Cancer Patient Coalition.

POLICY SEMINAR Globalization and food security: What could 20 years of IFPRI research teach us? OCT 12, 2022 - 11:00AM TO 12:30PM EDT 2022 has been marked by another global food price crisis, the third in 20 years. As food systems have become more interconnected, the debate around globalization and food security has reemerged. Are we too interconnected? Are multilateral institutions the only way to tackle global challenges that require collective action, or is that belief fading? These questions are not new. This webinar will revisit them through the lens of Antoine Bouet's work on global and regional trade issues and their intersections with food security outcomes. During Bouet's 17-year tenure as a Senior Research Fellow at IFPRI, his work informed civil society and policymakers and provided evidence for heated debates, from the intricacies of the global trade talks at the Hong Kong Ministerial Conference in 2005 to the challenges of measuring informal trade flows in West Africa during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will review 20 years of policy questions and associated research in the field of trade and food security. It will reflect on progress and mistakes made during this period, highlighting lessons to guide the research agenda needed to address challenges both old and new.
