Duncan Roberts from Delano joined Tom for Delano's Top Of The Week this morning. Up for discussion was the cost of living crisis and how the government's decision to delay the next salary indexation in Luxembourg will affect workers here. Statec published a report this week that revised its inflation forecasts to 6.6% for 2022 and 5.3% for 2023. In normal circumstances, workers in luxembvourg would have received a 3rd index rise in salaries this year – but because the 2nd one has already been deferred to 2023 already, and they are limited to one a year for the next two years, the unions are upset that the cost of living crisis is going to badly affect less well off workers and their families. The Government has agreed to holding another Tripartite meeting with unions and employers to discuss a possible new course of action following the decision, however there is no specific date provisioned for this to happen yet. This will be decided after summer recess ends in September. Duncan's Event picks for this week were: At Rotondes - Congés annulés continues At Cinémathèque - Summer Nights films E-lake Festival - Happening in Echternach next weekend. His personal pick was a track by the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, "Lava Lamp Pisco" from new album Night Gnomes

Today's guest on the Breakfast Show was Mirka Costanzi from MASKéNADA, who came by the studio to talk to Tom about the Audio Walks they've produced in the south of Luxembourg for the Esch2022 cultural programming.

Since its foundation in 1995, as Luxembourg was European Capital of Culture, the association MASKéNADA has been devising innovative cultural projects, combining quality, popularity and experimentation, for the past 20 years. Their latest project "E Roude Fuedem Duerch De Roude Buedem" (a red thread through the red earth)presents as an audio walk that traces the stories of female folklore characters in the south of Luxembourg. Participants can download an app, plug in their headphones and walk along the route of the walk whilst being guided by the voices of these Southern Heroines.

As we see an increasing number of culturally diverse patients in our practices, there is no doubt of the importance of cultural competency in medicine. Specific circumstances and miscommunications have been well documented. But how can we develop an eye to see where a patient’s values and worldview may differ from our own? We will review an approach to cultural competency highlighted by medical missions case studies.

*) EU members strike deal to reduce gas use as Russia pummels Ukraine targets European Union member states have reached agreement on how to cut their consumption of gas by 15 percent and reduce their dependence on Russian supplies. The breakthrough came hours after Ukraine accused Russian forces of launching multiple missile strikes at targets on the Black Sea coast near the southern port city of Odessa. Luxembourg's energy minister tweeted that Hungary was the only member state in the 27-member bloc to vote against the plan. *) Powerful earthquake strikes northern Philippines, felt in capital A 7.1-magnitude earthquake has hit the northern Philippines, authorities said, killing at least four people and injuring more than 60 others. The shallow yet powerful quake struck the mountainous and lightly populated province of Abra on the main island of Luzon early on Wednesday, the US Geological Survey said. Philippine President, Ferdinand Marcos Jr, has ordered the immediate dispatch of rescue teams to the affected areas, said the press secretary. *) Biden, Xi to meet amid new tensions over Taiwan Presidents Joe Biden and SHE Jinping are set to speak on Thursday amid new tensions between Washington and Beijing over China's claims on Taiwan. The planned talks between the two leaders — the fifth in a series of regular check-ins — have been in the works for weeks. But the possibility of a visit to Taiwan by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has added fresh strain to the complicated relationship. Beijing is warning that it will take “forceful measures” should Pelosi visit the self-ruled island of Taiwan that China claims as part of its territory. *) ‘We may just have to do it again': Trump hints at rerun for White House Donald Trump has returned to Washington for the first time since leaving the White House with a fiery speech hinting that he may run for president again in 2024. Trump repeated claims that he won the 2020 election, and denounced the House committee investigation into the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.

And finally… *) Russia to quit International Space Station, pursue own orbital station Russia has announced that it will be leaving the International Space Station "after 2024", amid tensions with the West.

Space experts said the departure from the station would seriously affect the country's space sector and deal a major blow to the programme of manned flights.
The 30th annual INURA Conference entitled "Small State Big Transitions” was held in Luxembourg from June 25 to 28. Over 60 participants gathered at the conference to learn about the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and to celebrate the 30 years INURA. This year's conference was organised by the Urban Studies Group at the Department of Geography and Spatial Planning at the University of Luxembourg. With a population of just over 600,000, Luxembourg is a small, multilingual, sovereign state. But these diminutive attributes belie a cosmopolitan space where daily life frequently involves using three languages, and encountering perhaps four, five or six. Exhilarating and bewildering, it speaks to the 'small-but-global' urbanisation the country has experienced in recent decades. The conference opened with city tours that explored the range of challenges and contradictions that constitute this complex urban space which elides various categories: a small state, city-state, multilingual sovereign nation, European capital, financial capital, international business hub, and cross-border (sub)urban region. In addition to being the 30th year anniversary celebration of INURA, the Luxembourg conference was the first in-person meeting of the network since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Spread over three days of lively discussion, the conference played host to a variety of topics from climate crisis and social justice, to movements and Marxism, and the role of financial markets in housing and urban development. The conference also played host to the screening of the films ‘How Poles Became White' by Tino Bucholz and ‘The Truth lies in Rostock' by Mark Saunders. The podcast features fragments of interviews and reflections from INURA Luxembourg attendees. The podcast begins with the recital of Adrian Mitchell's poem Ancestors and ends with Leon Rosselson's song, The World Turned Upside Down, both recited by Chris Tranchell, and featuring a violin improvisation by Philipp Klaus. The INURA 2023 conference will take place in Zurich.
