The Pandora Papers have hit and it's shedding light on the financial secrets of world leaders, politicians, fugitives and con artists. Leaked records show how big power players are stashing assets in secret shell companies, offshore tax havens, and trusts with governments doing little to stop it. Through these documents we are seeing country leaders on five continents using the offshore system, including King Abdullah II of Jordan spending millions on luxury homes in California. We are also learning how South Dakota is a key player where people are moving money to secretive American trust companies. Michael Hudson, senior editor at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, the group who led the effort in obtaining these documents, joins us for what's in the Pandora Papers. Next, get ready for mail delays and price hikes coming to the US Postal Service. In an effort to cut costs over the next 10 years, first-class mail will be slowed down and there will be less reliance on planes used to transport mail across the country. First-class mail used to be delivered in 1-3 days, and in some cases it will be delivered in 1-5 days. Price hikes are also coming to stamps and package delivery just in time for the holiday season. This plan and the Postmaster General have both received criticism. Ellen Ioanes, reporter at Vox, joins us for what to expect and who is affected most.

Episode 110 – In the wake of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, how are we to understand the Middle East today? How should Western Christians approach Israel and all things Jewish? What about Bible prophecy in light of the Jewish state today? Who are the enemies and the allies of the West, and of Israel, in the Middle East today? Stephanie is joined again by Joel Rosenberg, New York Times bestselling author of novels and nonfiction books with nearly 5 million copies in print. This is part 2 of Joel Rosenberg's exclusive interview with Stephanie. Make sure to first listen to part 1, episode 109! An evangelical Christian, dual U.S.-Israeli citizen and global influencer living in Jerusalem, Joel Rosenberg embodies the Gospel Spice mission to inspire you to taste and see that the Lord is good, through an in-depth experience of the cultural flavors of Scripture. Joel is an unmatched storyteller with a contagious passion for Christ and his people. This makes him the ideal Gospel Spice anniversary guest as we celebrate our 2nd anniversary this month! Not to mention, Stephanie has been a fan of his books and political analyses for almost 20 years now. In his latest book, Enemies and Allies, Joel asks, “do recent changes in the Middle East signal peace?” One Arab country after another is signing historic, game-changing peace, trade, investment, and tourism deals with Israel. At the same time, Russia, Iran, and Turkey are forming a highly dangerous alliance that could threaten the Western powers. Meanwhile, the U.S. is drawing down its military forces in the Mideast and focusing on matters closer to home. Where's it all heading? Enemies and Allies takes readers behind closed doors in the Middle East and introduce them to the very kings and crown princes, presidents and prime ministers who are leading the change. Today, Joel also tells us about his Jewish family and growing up in America, before moving to Israel with his wife Lynn and his four sons in 2014. We talk spices and Jewish flavors – spiritually and literally! Joel takes us on a tour into Jerusalem—its streets, flavors, smells and most importantly, its uniquely global culture today. How is the Jewish Christian church doing today? Make sure to listen to find out! How can we understand what is happening in the Middle East today, from Afghanistan and Tehran to Jerusalem and Amman? Joel Rosenberg joins us to share a sobering truth about our world today: “To misunderstand the nature and threat of evil is to risk being blindsided by it.” This applies spiritually, but also politically today more than ever, as history has shown. Then we move on to more personal things: how does Joel study Scripture in general, and prophecy in particular? How does his expertise on all things Mideast inform his thriller writing? What should we Christians know about the Middle East today to understand our world? How does our perspective on Israel inform our faith? And, how does prophecy build faith? We talk about expanding our view of God to make Him our delight and glorify Him – a topic near and dear Stephanie's heart, as you might know! How does Joel use his thriller-writing talent to sneak in other topics? Well, you GOT to hear Joel's analogy of the meatloaf smoothie. It's got to do with leveraging our entertainment culture to share the gospel, and it is irresistible. And then, how should Christians view Israel? This is a heavy question with answers ranging from disdain, to ignorance, to idolatry. Joel brings a balanced, discerning view that is sure to inform your approach to all things Jewish—spiritually and yes, politically too. This leads us to a conversation about the famous Abraham accords that normalized relationships between Israel and 4 Muslim nations in 2020: how do these breakthrough accords inform our attitude as Christians today? How about Iran? How about Afghanistan and the role of the US in the Middle East today? MORE ABOUT JOEL ROSENBERG Joel has been profiled by the New York Times, the Washington Times, and the Jerusalem Post and has appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs in the U.S., Canada, and around the world. As a sought-after speaker, he has addressed audiences at the White House, the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, the Israeli president's residence, the Israeli Knesset, the European Union parliament in Brussels, and business and faith conferences in North America and around the world. Joel became famous in 2002 when writing novels that had the uncanny tendency to become reality. He says, “Before my first political thriller was released, I had never in my life been on national television. Nor had I been on but a few small radio shows. But when The Last Jihad was published in November of 2002, I suddenly found myself interviewed on more than 160 radio and TV programs. Sean Hannity. Rush Limbaugh. Michael Reagan. Fox News. MSNBC. I had the opportunity to talk to more than twenty million people in less than sixty days. The media was intrigued that anyone could have written a novel that opened with a plane hijacked by radical Islamic terrorists flying a kamikaze attack into an American city and then led to a war between the United States and Iraq over terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. They were even more intrigued that I'd begun writing nine months before 9/11 and had finished the book before any of it had ever happened for real. How was this possible? Did I work for the CIA? Did I have some sort of inside information? To each host I would explain how after more than a decade in Washington as a senior advisor to a number of U.S. and Israeli leaders including Steve Forbes, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Natan Sharansky, I had decided to write a political thriller about a War on Terror I was convinced was coming and how such a war might be triggered. I explained the research I had done, and the process I'd gone through of writing a first novel. Such questions only intensified after my second thriller, The Last Days, was published in October 2003. It opened with the death of Yasser Arafat and an American president pushing hard for peace and democracy in the Middle East. Thirteen months after it was published, Arafat died, and two months later President Bush decided to make democracy in the Middle East the centerpiece of his second term agenda. What was particularly odd was that the first few pages of Days put readers inside a U.S. diplomatic convoy heading into Gaza as part of the peace process that would involve an Israeli pullout from Gaza and the West Bank when that convoy was attacked by a massive explosion. Just two weeks before Days hit bookstores, something terrible happened. A U.S. diplomatic convoy heading into Gaza as part of the peace process was suddenly attacked by a massive explosion. Among the readers of his books are Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former President George W. Bush, former CIA Director Porter Goss, former Delta Force Commander General Jerry Boykin, former senior White House advisor Jason Greenblatt, Jordan's King Abdullah II, former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, former Israeli Interior Minister Natan Sharansky, former Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, and many other US, Israeli, Arab and other foreign leaders. Joel's latest non-fiction book, “Enemies and Allies,” releases this week and is already poised to become a global bestseller (you can order it here: https://joelrosenberg.com/non-fiction/). Do recent changes in the Middle East signal peace? One Arab country after another is signing historic, game-changing peace, trade, investment, and tourism deals with Israel.

A few weeks ago shock waves hit the Middle East - and particularly Israel - when word came out of Amman that a planned coup against King Abdullah II was foiled and that the most senior figure in the plot was the monarch’s half-brother Prince Hamza, who was confined to his residence. But then it turned out that there was less to the story than met the ears and that it was more conversations than conspiracies. The Hashemite regime seems fully in control and the family feud is being mediated by the siblings’ uncle. Nevertheless, the episode served to highlight Jordan’s unique strategic position in the region and the stakes in its stability. Panel: - Jonathan Hessen, Host. - Amir Oren, Analyst. - Col. (Res.)

Today we’re very lucky to be joined by Annelle Sheline, Research Fellow for the Middle East at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft and a non-resident fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy. Annelle’s research focuses on religious authority in the Middle East, particularly the intersection of religious and national identities in the Arab monarchies, and she’s done fieldwork in Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen.Jordanian King Abdullah II addressing the European Parliament in January 2020, which explains the lack of masks and the general failure to socially distance (European Parliament via Wikimedia Commons)One of the countries in that list has been particularly newsworthy of late, and somewhat surprisingly it’s Jordan.

Annelle’s Responsible Statecraft piece on the coup and its potential to serve as a justification for a broad political crackdown is available here and you can find her on Twitter here.

This past weekend, an exceptional series of events rocked the normally quiet nation of Jordan as an apparent schism between members of the country's royal family led to the detention of the country's former crown prince, Prince Hamzeh, and the arrest of several of his associates on allegations that they were undermining the country's national security—potentially in coordination with certain foreign interests. Hamzeh responded with a series of leaked videos in both Arabic and English, accusing the government led by King Abdullah II of ineffectiveness and corruption, dragging the royal family's internal tensions even further into the light of day. To talk through this unexpected crisis, Scott R. Anderson sat down with Bessma Momani of the University of Waterloo and Ghaith al-Omari of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. They discussed the history of royal succession in Jordan, how this latest crisis maps onto Jordan's changing political dynamics and what it all might mean for the broader region.

Royal tumult in Jordan comes at a time of economic hardship

In the past several days, Jordan has seen something unusual — a dispute within its royal family that has spilled into the public. On Sunday, Jordanian authorities said they had foiled a “malicious plot” by former Crown Prince Hamzah bin Hussein to destabilize the kingdom of King Abdullah II, Jordan’s current ruler. “The kingdom’s stability and security transcend everything,” said Ayman Safadi, Jordan’s foreign minister and deputy prime minister. “The plot is totally contained.”But on Monday, Prince Hamzah said in an audio recording that he will not follow orders to remain in his palace in Amman, and denied any attempt at a coup plot. Several individuals have been arrested, as well, including Bassem Awadallah, a former Cabinet minister and head of the royal court and Sharif Hassan bin Zaid, a member of the royal family.For many Jordanians, the royal family dispute comes at a difficult time as the country faces tough economic conditions. From his home in Amman, the capital, Kamal, 37, has been following the news about the dispute on social media, where he gets most of his news. With a tightly controlled state media, Kamal said he fears speaking publicly about the royal family, and asked The World to use his first name only. While international media covered the dispute heavily, “state TV had a documentary about the benefits of honey extracted from bees,” Kamal said with a laugh. “As Jordanians, in general, we do support our king. ... We do believe that there is no other solution outside the royal family.”Kamal from Amman, Jordan“As Jordanians, in general, we do support our king,” he said. “We do believe that there is no other solution outside the royal family.” But Kamal added that the government needs to address the country’s dire economic situation. Related: Aid blame game leaves Syrian refugees stranded in desert 'death' camp A protracted economic crisis Jordan’s economy has been hit hard in recent years. “Jordan is a country whose foreign debt had reached $40 billion or 95% of the country’s GDP [gross domestic product]."Dalia Fahmy, Long Island University“Jordan is a country whose foreign debt had reached $40 billion or 95% of the country’s GDP [gross domestic product],” said Dalia Fahmy, who teaches political science at Long Island University.Fahmy explained that the increase was due to several factors — a decrease in tourism and foreign investment, an increase in military spending, the current pandemic, mismanagement and the decadelong refugee crisis.Related: Jordan includes refugees in its COVID-19 vaccination rollout To offset the financial trouble, the government took out an International Monetary Fund loan, Fahmy said, which was conditional on austerity measures.“Once you put austerity measures on a hurting population in an ailing economy, it hurts the most vulnerable of the population,” she said.And people are feeling the pain, Kamal said, in Amman. He has two young daughters, a 1-year-old and a 5-year-old. He said he pays taxes on baby formula. Prices of basic goods like cooking oil are way up, he said, and it’s the same with electricity. “At the same time, we are now using online education for our kids. So, what happens if you’re not able to pay your bills?” he asked.A popular prince among tribes Prince Hamzah formerly held the title of crown prince. But in 2004, the king stripped him of that position and anointed his own son the crown prince.Hamzah is popular among various tribes in Jordan, according to analysts. He has been taking part in meetings with tribal leaders in the past few months, where — allegedly — people criticized government policies.Specifically, economic policies.“The current king, when he came into power, he really focused on economic reform and not on political reforms. So, for the former crown prince to critique his brother on economic mismanagement is really targeting what the king has been touting for himself,” Fahmy said. Related: Israeli plans for annexation weigh heavily on Jordan Valley residentsYet, as bad as the tensions in Jordan seem, Fahmy doesn’t think any major political changes are imminent.“The continuation of the king is not what is in jeopardy here. ... It’s really internal popularity, internal dissent and whether the king will be able to accommodate this by some set of reforms.”Dalia Fahmy, Long Island University“The continuation of the king is not what is in jeopardy here,” she said. “It’s really internal popularity, internal dissent and whether the king will be able to accommodate this by some set of reforms.”Meanwhile, Washington is watching all of this very closely.Jordan is an important ally for the US in the region.The US has military bases and some 3,000 troops there.On Saturday, Ned Price, spokesman for the US State Department, said that King Abdullah has the full support of the United States.

The usually warm relationship between the United States and Jordan has come under strain during President Donald Trump’s time in office. Jordanian leaders have criticized many of Trump’s policies in the region, especially his support for Israeli settlements in the West Bank, his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his one-sided proposal for a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. It was no surprise, then, that Jordan’s King Abdullah II was one of the first world leaders to congratulate Joe Biden for his victory over Trump in last month’s presidential election. And in a phone conversation with Abdullah last week, his first with an Arab leader, Biden told the king that he hopes to cooperate on pursuing “a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” It remains unclear, though, just how much of a priority that will be for Biden as he enters office with a herculean to-do list. This week on Trend Lines, WPR’s Elliot Waldman was joined by Marwan Muasher, a former foreign minister and deputy prime minister of Jordan who’s now vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. They discussed the implications of Biden’s presidency for Jordan, for the Israelis and Palestinians, and for U.S. policy toward the Middle East writ large.  Relevant Articles on WPR: Israel-Gulf Normalization Sends Palestinians Back to the Drawing Board Is Jordan on the Verge of an Economic Reckoning? ‘The Path of Negotiations Has Failed.’ Where Annexation Leaves Palestinians Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ Will Doom Peace Between Israelis and Palestinians Trend Lines is produced and edited by Peter Dörrie, a freelance journalist and analyst focusing on security and resource politics in Africa.

In the next thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling Mitch Rapp series, it’s a race against the clock when ISIS takes out the entire US power grid and throws the country into chaos. When Mitch Rapp captures ISIS’s top technology expert, he reveals that he was on his way to meet a man who claims to have the ability to bring down America’s power grid. Rapp is determined to eliminate this shadowy figure, but the CIA’s trap fails. The Agency is still trying to determine what went wrong when ISIS operatives help this cyber terrorist do what he said he could—plunge the country into darkness. With no concept of how this unprecedented act was accomplished, the task of getting the power back on could take months. Perhaps even years. Rapp and his team embark on a desperate search for the only people who know how to repair the damage— the ones responsible. But his operating environment is like nothing he’s experienced before. Computers and communication networks are down, fuel can no longer be pumped from gas stations, water and sanitation systems are on the brink of collapse, and the supply of food is running out. On Vince Flynn: Total Power is the 19th book featuring counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp. All 14 books that Vince Flynn wrote before his death were New York Times bestsellers, 3 of them reached the top of the New York Times bestseller list Nearly 75 million Vince Flynn books have been sold worldwide At least 2 United States Presidents and 1 King are fans of Vince Flynn: he’s heard personally from both President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush (left) that they’re big fans, the latter even inviting him to the White House on several occasions. King Abdullah II of Jordan (see right) has hosted Vince in his palace and requests each new book for his enjoyment. On Kyle Mills: Kyle Mills is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-one books, including five previous Mitch Rapp novels, The Survivor, Order to Kill, Enemy of the State, Red War and last year’s #1 New York Times bestseller Lethal Agent. Kyle’s father was an FBI agent, the Legal Attaché to the UK, and the director of Interpol. As the legend that Vince Flynn created goes: Mitch Rapp joined the CIA in reaction to the love of his life dying in Pan Am 103. Well, in real life, Kyle’s father was the FBI’s lead man in the investigation of that terrorist attack. It happened during Kyle’s college graduation dinner in London where he was stationed at the time. His assistant came to the restaurant and told him that a plane had gone down in a small Scottish town. That was the last he saw of him for months. The Mills family first met Tom Clancy when he was researching his second book and still worked as an insurance salesman. His FBI character Dan Murray is based on Mills’s father. Because of Kyle’s father’s job, he grew up in Oregon, Washington, DC. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/steve-richards/support

Each piece in the program was based on meditation, sacred text, or religiously inspired poetry, written by composers of different religious backgrounds and nationalities. Poetic Reflections aimed to share an experience of universal spirituality that can be deeply felt through music. One of Houston's most notable composers, Paul English, debuted a piece composed for Gerling-Mut Duo, centering around the mission of the Rothko Chapel. Gerling-Mut Duo were joined by guest musicians Gabriel Santiago, guitar, and Cassio Duarte, percussion. About Gerling-Mut Duo: Known for their dynamic performances and creative programming, Dr. Ingrid Gerling and Dr. Andreea Muţ are re-energizing the concept of the violin and piano duo. They began their musical collaboration in 2012, while pursuing their Doctorate of Musical Arts degrees at the University of Houston. Upon graduating in 2015, they officially formed the Gerling-Mut Duo with the mission to bring new life to this traditional genre. They perform a wide range of repertoire, and share a strong commitment to performing contemporary music. Since its formation, the Gerling-Mut Duo has given multiple recitals at the University of St. Thomas and performs weekly for the Harmony in the Air series at the Hobby Airport. Their recent performances at San Jacinto College and at the Memorial Classical Music series were received with great enthusiasm, and they have since been invited to give recitals at St. Stephen’s United Methodist Church and Grace United Methodist Church. The Gerling-Mut Duo was also featured at Miller Outdoor Theatre and the Rice University Boniuk Institute for Religious Tolerance as part of the Arts of Tolerance program. Future plans include another series of recitals at University of St. Thomas and other venues in Houston, outreach performances throughout Houston, and a recital tour in Brazil. This program was presented in celebration of World Interfaith Harmony Week | February 1 – 7, 2019 The World Interfaith Harmony Week was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 by H.M. King Abdullah II of Jordan. Just under a month later, on October 20, 2010, it was unanimously adopted by the UN. The World Interfaith Harmony Week extends the two common religious commandments: Love of the Good, and Love of the Neighbor, and includes all people of goodwill, those of faith and those with no faith. The week provides a platform when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill can show the world what a powerful movement they are. It is hoped that this initiative will provide a focal point from which all people of goodwill can recognize that the common values they hold far outweigh the differences they have, and thus provide a strong dosage of peace and harmony to their communities.

He began his business career while still in college studying biology on scholarship, where he started the Vincent Siefer Clothing Co. with USD$50, and soon after formed the Sitavani Foundation, which focused its attention on the education of children and on child development programmes. In 1990, he formed and became the ceo of the STI Group that was responsible for some groundbreaking businesses such as the world’s smallest optic engine, the first circular abrasive discs, Southeast Asia’s first commercial Internet company (at a time when Malaysia had a total of 700 internet users), and a variety of other technology innovations including one of the first virtual reality companies in the US. The multimedia arm of the group was also responsible for the first Malaysian joint venture to produce a movie at Disney MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida (Tarzan: The Epic Adventures). After the 1997 Asian financial crisis, STI merged with his other international interests and The Petra Group was created.

In all, 30 schools were represented. The “Sekhar Initiative,” as it was referred to then, led to the creation of several global programs that enhanced interaction among the schools and led to his his creation of one of Kuala Lumpur’s major international schools, The Mont’ Kiara International School, which he developed with his partners. For his contribution to the globalization of education and the education of children, Datuk Vinod was made the first and youngest Asian fellow of Kappa Delta Pi, a US-based international Honors Society for Education.

Datuk Vinod has become an activist for what he calls “simple principles of a civilized society” where all businessmen must involve themselves in their own society’s positive development, and has been a victim of media, political and corporate attacks on himself under the previous government, for his refusal to stop speaking out for reform and supporting the then imprisoned opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. He is regarded as one of the small handful of senior business leaders and one of the only Forbes listed figures to publicly advocate for change and the release of Anwar for 20 years.  Despite it all, he has refused to be bowed or cowed, and he continues to speak his views openly, including at the campaign rallies of the recent historic general elections that led to the May 9th transformation of Malaysia’s political landscape. He continues today to build his multinational technology group, his foundations, and still speaks out for social and economic justice. His latest national work involves the planned launch of the Malaysia Movement to stop the racial polarization of Malaysian society and to create a platform for open debate. Datuk Vinod is a strong supporter of a mindset reform in the Malaysian political landscape. After being named by Forbes as the 16th richest man in Malaysia, Datuk Vinod and his wife donated 60% of their entire ownership in the Petra group to their charitable foundations.  He is currently preparing for the launch of his new integrated app that connects seamlessly the public, corporate society, charities, social programmes and those in need.  He has written several plays, a book of poetry, and screenplays. Datuk Vinod also hosted Malaysia’s first English language talk show on television, and jointly won several New York Festival Awards for his cutting-edge advertising campaigns. In 2015 the film Datuk Vinod produced in India, Liars Dice, was the sole Indian nomination for Best Foreign Picture category at the Academy Awards (Oscars). His other productions include the award winning play he wrote called “In the Minds Eye”, and multiple award winning Asian American film called Hundred Percent.  In this episode, we discuss: Vinod's family business journey How he's able to juggle all of his businesses What keeps him motivated in family business

On This Week's Episode....​   Tim, Josh, and Mike discuss the Syrian civil war, and all come to the same conclusion – damned if we know what to do about it. The horrific toll the war has played on the civilian population, the international politics, the Russians, the Americans, the Iranians…where do you begin? Probably not three Canadians with microphones drinking beer.  Also Overheard:​ Josh has ONE job. Well, had.  Syria is probably not our top rated TripAdvisor destination.  Yes, the king of Jordan was on an episode of Star Trek: Voyager!

This week on Inspired Edinburgh we have Mostafa Salameh. Mostafa is one of only 16 people on the planet to have completed the ‘Explorers Grand Slam’, a truly astonishing feat which involves climbing the Seven highest Summits in all seven continents as well as conquering the North and South Poles. His journey began in 2004 following a vivid dream in which he was reciting the call to prayer from the world’s highest peak. He followed this calling and became the first Jordanian to climb Mount Everest in 2008 and in the same year was knighted by King Abdullah II of Jordan.  Four years into his sporting career he made a conscious decision to climb for a purpose. In the spirit of helping those in need, he launched three successful initiatives that raised millions for charity. In March 2016, he published his first book titled ‘Dreams of a Refugee’ and a large part of his time is now passionately invested in inspiring and motivating children, youths and adults into realizing their own dreams in the same way he has. Without question one of the most inspiring people we’ve had the honour of speaking with.   00.00 Trailer 00.13 Introduction 01.40 Reflecting on achievements 02.30 What does the city of Edinburgh mean to Mostafa? 03.20 Mostafa’s early life and growing up 10.00 Mostafa’s career ambitions and aspirations 11.40 How did Mostafa’s career path change? 30.30 Did Mostafa ever have any doubts? 36.30 When did Mostafa decide to tackle the North and South Poles? 45.30 Mostafa’s future plans 50.20 What does Mostafa feel is his purpose? 55.00 What would Mostafa like his legacy to be? 55.45 What is Mostafa most grateful for? 56.50 Who are the people that have influenced and inspired Mostafa? 1.01.00 Improving the situation with Islamic extremism 1.03.50 Best piece of advice 1.05.30 How does Mostafa define success? 1.06.10 Speaking to 20 year old self 1.06.50 Changing the world  1.09.50 Mostafa’s greatest achievement   You can find Mostafa at: http://www.mostafasalameh.com/ https://www.facebook.com/MostafaSalamehjo/ https://twitter.com/mostafasalameh https://www.instagram.com/mostafasalameh/   Like and Follow Inspired Edinburgh here: http://www.inspiredinburgh.com https://www.facebook.com/INSPIREDINBURGH https://www.twitter.com/INSPIREDINBURGH https://www.instagram.com/INSPIREDINBURGH
