When Lionel Loueke was coming of age as a young guitar player in his home country of Benin in West Africa, there were no music stores of any kind. He would have had to travel to Nigeria - the next country over - just to get his hands on some new strings. So he made due with what he had, cleaning and soaking, reusing his strings and even going so far as to tie knots in them when they broke. Lionel's story is the stuff of legend. After finally getting his hands on a guitar as a teenager, he put together enough technique and understanding to get himself to the Ivory Coast to attend music school, and then managed to get to Paris for further musical study. Eventually he went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, and then to the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz at UCLA in Los Angeles (now called the Hancock Institute) where he had the opportunity to study and work with his greatest mentors: Terence Blanchard, Wayne Shorter Herbie Hancock. Soon he began to work with those same mentors, appearing on albums by Blanchard and Hancock. And since then he has gone on to play with an incredible list of greatest, most creative and influential players alive. Today he lives in Luxembourg, teaches at the Jazz Campus in Basel, Switzerland, and in non Covid times, tours and records relentlessly. A brief scan of his recent solo recording work tells the story: In 2019 he released an ambitious album aptly named The Journey - the title reflects both his odyssey from childhood in Benin to his current life as a globe-trotting jazz star while also mirroring his musical development. He followed that up in 2020 with a much more intimate album called HH featuring solo guitar performances, punctuated by vocals and vocal percussion, of Herbie Hancock compositions. And in 2021 he released Close Your Eyes, a more loosely structured blowing record of classic repertoire, in musical conversation with bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Eric Harland. He tells me that after trying as hard as possible to remove the African influences from his playing and trying to sound more like his jazz heroes, he ultimately realized that they were all compatible, and he began to reintroduce more of the sounds of his childhood into his approach. The result is a very personal, very musical and emotional sound. I think maybe that's what makes him such an appealing collaborator. His voice is so identifiable and personal, but you can feel the road that he has traveled in his playing. In fact, he ends up telling me exactly that. He says “our story is what we play, the story of somebody from the beginning to the time they play, that's what we are presenting.” www.third-story.com www.patreon.com/thirdstorypodcast www.lionelloueke.com/

We've all heard how combined, Amazon's European marketplaces are equal in size to Amazon US. That's no small amount of revenue up for grabs.But you've likely also heard horror stories.20% taxesStrict customs regulationsStuck shipmentsGDPR, and other acronyms that give us headaches. That's what has kept thousands of successful American brands from expanding internationally.But if it's really so difficult to expand to Amazon Europe, why are so many brands of all sizes finding success there? From 8 figure supplements brands to 1 product startups, Amazon Sellers are increasing their revenue by selling the same products to more people in more countries. And it's probably easier than you've been led to believe.We brought on expert in all things international e-commerce Rael Lowenthal to give us the playbook for quick, easy, and low-risk expansion from US to EU marketplaces.In this episode of the Actualize Freedom Podcast:How to test European markets by risking less than $1000Why "good debt" is a key pillar for fast-growing Amazon sellersHow to avoid dumb mistakes with legal compliance in multiple foreign countriesVAT broken down into easily understood terms (for non-lawyers, ex. regular people) You can reach out to Rael and his team at zee.co to inquire about help with anything to do with expansion to European marketplaces on Amazon. VAT setup, importer of record (IOR), customs compliance, stuck shipments, or international freight.What is An Importer of Record?In simple terms, it's a government's way of ensuring that every foreign brand has a domestic company that will take responsibility for ensuring proper compliance with local import regulations. You can't import into many countries in Europe without a local company acting as your importer of record or IOR. It makes sense when you think about all the black-hat Chinese sellers who were blatantly ignoring VAT regulations. The governments have little power over bad-actors in other countries. By making an IOR mandatory, there's at least a local company who must take responsibility for illegal activity if the company they are representing is breaking laws or failing to pay their fair share.What is VAT?VAT is short for Value Added Tax, and is the big scary 20% (ish) tax that Amazon sellers have nightmares about. At first it sounds complicated, but once you understand how it works it's not as bad as it seems. It varies by country and we highly recommend working with a company to help you ensure correct compliance."The European Union value-added tax (or EU VAT) is a value added tax on goods and services within the European Union (EU). The EU's institutions do not collect the tax, but EU member states are each required to adopt a value added tax that complies with the EU VAT code. Different rates of VAT apply in different EU member states, ranging from 17% in Luxembourg to 27% in Hungary."wikipedia

lls sont plusieurs centaines à croupir dans les geôles biélorusses en raison de leurs opinions politiques. 900 dont Viktor Babaryko, principal opposant au président Loukachenko, arrêté avant les élections frauduleuses de 2020 et condamné à 14 ans de prison. Beaucoup d'autres opposants ont fui, souvent dans le pays voisin en Lituanie. C'est le cas de Margarita Levchuk, ancienne soliste de l'opéra de Minsk. Elle a défilé contre les élections truquées d'août 2020. Elle vit désormais en exil et soutient l'opposition par le biais de petits clips humoristiques postés sur les réseaux sociaux qui engrangent des centaines de milliers de vues. À l'occasion d'un concert caritatif pour les familles des prisonniers politiques, Virginie Pironon l'a rencontrée à Paris. L'Europe vue de Berlin Comme s'il fallait des preuves supplémentaires avec la visite en fin de semaine dernière du nouveau chancelier allemand à Paris: le couple franco-allemand est plus solide que jamais. Les convergences de vue sont nombreuses, même si Olaf Scholz va encore plus loin qu'Emmanuel Macron en parlant d'une évolution vers un État fédéral européen... Une nouvelle coalition au pouvoir, composée des sociaux démocrates des libéraux et des Verts, très européenne, comme nous l'explique notre correspondant à Berlin, Leo Bräuer Potier. La CJUE, pour quoi faire? Et dans la querelle qui oppose au sein de l'Union européenne, les progressistes et les souverainistes, ou les fédéralistes et les nationalistes, comme on voudra la Cour de Justice de l'Union européenne basée à Luxembourg occupe une place centrale. Vilipendée par la Pologne et la Hongrie, lorsqu'elle vient remettre en cause leur réforme de la justice ou l'attribution opaque des marchés publics, la CJUE comme on l'appelle, est aussi très critiquée pendant cette campagne présidentielle française. Explication de texte sur les attributions de cette cour et les attaques dont elle est l'objet. C'est l'oeil européen de notre chroniqueuse Franceline Beretti. Des logements pour les étudiants C'est une solution au mal logement étudiant. La colocation intergénérationelle a vu le jour dans plusieurs pays européens comme l'Allemagne. Elle démarre en France. Avec un constat: trois millions d'étudiants ont des difficultés pour trouver un logement, et une personne âgée sur trois souffre de solitude. Deux problèmes qui trouvent une solution lorsqu'un étudiant vient louer une chambre chez un sénior. Encore faut-il trouver le bon binôme. Lise Verbeke a rencontré à Arras dans le nord de la France, deux colocataires heureux.
"Mary Berry ate my tart and it didn't have a soggy bottom!" The joyous and colourful Anne Faber talks about her delectation for food, food journalism, her Advent Instagram supporting local business, and what she'll be cooking for Christmas. Plus, we want to hear YOUR recipes for the holidays! From camembert wedges with cranberry sauce whilst camping, food has always brought joy to Anne's life. Now, as the most famous (and only?) TV Chef in Luxembourg, her books and shows share that passion. Anne's down-to-earth charm and creativity is beguiling. But this energy also shows a deep commitment to hard-work and her innate intelligence. Anne works very hard, London hard, where she spent 12 years. Firstly as a student, doing the 'safe' studies of English Literature at UCL (University College London), followed by a postgraduate degree in Journalism at City University, London, specialising in food and drink writing. As a producer at Associated Press (AP) she was beginning to feel rather burnt out when serendipity played a part in her literally walking into the then editor for Time Out London's Food and Drinks section. And so, after a short internship, she got the job as restaurant critic, where she "ate her way around London". In parallel, Anne continued to work as a TV producer for ZDF and RTL Germany (from London), and in 2010 started her food blog Anne's Kitchen, which was awarded a Digital Food Award by Food & Wine magazine in the US in 2013. During her time in London, Anne applied for the first series of The Bake Off and got down to the final 20! And happily adds, "Mary Berry ate my tart and it didn't have a soggy bottom" Back home, Anne's Kitchen has flourished. Anne has many culinary strands but the main ones remain TV and writing books. She takes inspiration from her travels, and when that's not possible, can travel the world in food through instagram! In her library of cookbooks, Nigella's prose is the type she most respects for its literary finesse. Having trained under Alain Ducasse in Paris in 2015, Anne's knowledge is solid, but when constructing her own recipes, she is conscious of how much effort her readers are likely to put in, plus what ingredients are available to us here. And more recently, Anne has been ever more thoughtful about how to use up leftovers so that there are none. We want your recipes for Christmas and the holidays! I know that many of you who listen are from lots of different places around the world. We would love to hear from you! What are your favourite Christmas or holiday recipes? How do you celebrate. What are your traditions? Send us some recipes and photos and I'll make sure Anne sees them too!

Is Indexation a good idea? What rights do freelancers have? From the history of indexation in Luxembourg to its pros and cons across the socio-economic spectrum, Aline Muller and Jean-Paul Olinger discuss with Lisa Burke. Indexation of wages has existed in Luxembourg since 1975, across the public and private sector. This means that wages are automatically increased in accordance with the consumer price index. This average is monitored over a rolling period of six months using a 'cote d'application'. However, Luxembourg is in the minority of countries using indexation for wages. The economic and social arguments are varied and nuanced, over which demographic one focuses on, and what time period. How does indexation affect social inequalities, our competitive edge compared to neighbouring countries, and what voice does a freelancer have? Through all of this discussion, the main aim for any government should be to: "Maintain business activity and employment at the end of the COVID crisis whilst maintaining social cohesion” My guests: Jean-Paul Olinger, Director of Union des Entreprises Luxembourgeoises (UEL) and the Institut National pour le Développement durable et la Responsabilité sociale des entreprises (INDR).

Si des pays comme la Belgique, le Luxembourg et les Pays-Bas ont légalisé la mort médicalement assistée, en Italie, l'euthanasie est passible de 5 à 12 ans de prison. N'empêche dans ce pays très catholique, le débat a été récemment relancé. Au mois de septembre 2021, une pétition de plus d'un million de signatures a été déposée au Parlement italien afin de demander un référendum sur l'euthanasie légale. Dans la foulée, l'eurodéputée néerlandaise démocrate Sophie in 't Veld a adressé une lettre à la Commission européenne afin que l'UE se positionne sur ce sujet sur lequel elle est -pour l'heure- restée muette. Cécile Debarge. Le Portugal a failli devenir l'un des pays les plus progressistes sur la question de la fin de vie Le 5 novembre 2021, les députés portugais ont adopté, pour la deuxième fois, une loi autorisant la mort médicalement assistée. Signe des résistances qui existent, c'était le deuxième acte, après un premier refus, car la Cour constitutionnelle avait demandé aux députés de revoir leur copie. Mais hier (29 novembre) troisième acte, cette fois c'est le président du pays Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, conservateur et fervent catholique qui a usé de son droit de veto pour retoquer le texte de loi, demandant plus de précisions. Retour sur ce feuilleton législatif avec Marie-Line Darcy. Et en France, aussi la question de l'euthanasie divise En avril 2021, une proposition de loi pour un droit « à une fin de vie libre et choisie » a bien été déposée devant les députés, mais 4 000 amendements plus tard, le texte n'a pas été adopté. Et avec l'élection présidentielle qui se profile, le texte de loi risque fort de rester dans les tiroirs. Pendant ce temps, beaucoup de Français vont en Suisse ou en Belgique où le suicide assisté est autorisé. Et notamment, les habitants du nord de la France, frontalier avec la Belgique, Lise Verbeke. Peut-on faire tout dire à l'Histoire ? En France, alors que la campagne présidentielle est lancée, la question s'est de nouveau retrouvée propulsée dans l'actualité. Mais, cette tentation pour la réécriture de l'Histoire par certains hommes politiques n'est pas une spécificité française. Qu'en est-il ailleurs sur le continent ? C'est l'œil européen de Franceline Beretti. Cette année, l'archéologue lituanienne Marija Guimboutas aurait eu 100 ans. Inconnue du grand public, cette chercheuse a révélé l'existence d'une vieille civilisation européenne fondée sur le matriarcat. Pour la première fois, les Lituaniens ont l'occasion de la découvrir au musée national de Vilnius. Visite avec notre correspondante, Marielle Vitureau.

Cet ancien diplomate actif aux Etats-Unis et en Asie dirige aujourd'hui l'agence de développement de la place financière Luxembourgeoise et nous explique comment cette dernière agit concrètement pour faire grandir ce secteur qui représente 30% du PIB. Nous revenons sur la manière dont la place a fait évoluer son industrie du ForEx en passant par la Banque Privée, la structuration de fonds d'investissements puis les paiements. Avec la présence d'acteurs de taille comme Alipay ou PayPal et une masse d'avoirs sous gestion dans les fonds de 5 600 milliards d'Euros, le Luxembourg a transformé son secteur financier ces 20 dernières années. La nouvelle innovation de la place se situe dans la finance durable. Nicolas revient sur la genèse et la finalité des emprunts obligataires verts et nous permet de comprendre ce que fait concrètement le "green stock exchange".

What you'll learn in this episode: What it was like to design jewelry for high-fashion runways in the 70s and 80s How the right piece of jewelry can transform the wearer Why creative problem solving is the best skill you can have as a goldsmith How Tess' work wound up in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution and other museums How the jewelry field has changed with the popularization of social media Additional Resources: Website Instagram Facebook Photos: Blue Sky Chalcedony Byzantium Earrings Byzantium Necklace Circes Circle Necklace Illusion Necklace Ionian Necklace Its A Wrap Necklace Naiad Necklace About Tess Sholom Warm and malleable but also strong and enduring, gold shines with the spirit of life itself. For designer and jeweler Tess Sholom, gold is both medium and muse. Tess Sholom began her jewelry career in fashion jewelry in 1976, designing pieces that appeared on the runways of Karl Lagerfeld, Oscar de la Renta and James Galanos, and the pages of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Her fashion work is included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, Museum of the City of New York, the Racine Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and other museums. After two successful decades in fashion jewelry, she trained as a goldsmith and fell under the spell of high-karat gold. She decided to stop designing high-volume fashion jewelry and begin again as a hands-on studio artist, creating one-of-a-kind 22k gold jewelry in the workshop. Tess Sholom always had an eye for accessorizing, but she didn't realize it would lead her to a long and fruitful career as a jewelry designer. While working as a cancer researcher, a long-shot pitch to Vogue opened the door to a 30-year career as a jewelry designer for fashion runways. Her latest career move was opening Tess Sholom Designs, where she creates one-of-a-kind, high-karat gold pieces. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about how she designed jewelry for Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass and Karl Lagerfeld; why problem solving is the thread that runs through all her careers; and how she plays on gold's timeless, mystical quality in her work. Read the episode transcript here. Sharon: Yes, when I see kids on their phones, I'm like, “Oh my god!” When you see kids who speak a language you're trying to learn, it's amazing. Do you find that you get a response from Instagram and other social media? Tess: I do, yeah. It's amazing. Especially the past year, when everyone was pretty much isolated, it made a big difference. People are now getting accustomed to Amazon; everybody buys things through Amazon. When you want to find something, people say, “Oh, why don't you look on Amazon?” We have become this very immediate culture. We want things immediately so you don't have to go out of your house. You just click the computer and get what you want. Sharon: Very true. The Metropolitan Museum has what looks like a large collection of your designs for the runway and fashion jewelry. How did that come about? Tess: I'm trying to remember. It was after the curator had taken my work for the Museum of the City of New York. I don't remember, but I do remember spending an entire summer with my assistant giving everything a provenance. It took a long time to document everything because it had to be very specific. I think part of the reason why they have such a large collection is when the Brooklyn Museum of Art was renovating, they transferred some of their collection to the Met, I believe, and they just kept it in their archives. Sharon: If you're researching online, there's a lot there. It's interesting to see the designers that the pieces were done for. As I was surfing and trying to get some background, how do you feel when you come across a piece of yours on eBay that you made in the 80s? How do you feel about that? Tess: I love the fact that it still there. It's wonderful. I'm very pleased, and of course I'm amazed to see how much it's increased in value. On eBay, it goes for a lot more than I sold it 30 years ago. To go back and see that something that I made 30, 40 years ago is still relevant means so much. One of the worries of becoming an older person is if I am going to stay relevant, and it's very gratifying to see people are still purchasing something I made many years ago. It's interesting because it makes it timeless, even though it was made for a particular season; it was made either for a fall collection or a spring collection. 40 years later, somebody still wants it and it's still relevant. It's in a way timeless, and that's very gratifying to me. Sharon: I can see how that would be validating. Tess: It's excellent. Sharon: Is that something you think about when you're making your current pieces, about whether somebody's going to be looking? Tess: That's interesting. No, it never occurred to me because jewelry is problem solving. It's like a meditation because you must think about what you're doing, especially if you're using an acetylene torch. One second of inattention and it's gone. You have a lump of gold, which is very beautiful in itself, but not quite what you wanted. I'm thinking about what problems are presenting themselves while I'm making the piece, and they do. It's your vision coming to light. That's one thing, but it's a lot of overcoming obstacles. I'm working with a metal; I'm working with a flame, and they each have their own characteristics and their own minds, and I have to cooperate with all that. So, that's very interesting. I don't think about that. I just think about the piece I'm making and how I'm going to do the best I can. I have a lot of reverence for the material I'm using and I want to do it justice, so my focus is on trying to do the best I can while I'm working. I never thought about that before. Sharon: Do you design your pieces? I think of a pencil and paper. Do you sketch out a design before you start? Tess: Often I do that, but sometimes if I'm sculpting with gold, I have an idea of what I want and I just try to coax the metal to melt in the way I want it to. That's a lot of fun because you never know what's going to happen. Sometimes it's just that lucky accident that happens. My inspirations have come from everywhere. I remember once Bill Blass called me into his office and said, “I'm going to do roses for my spring collection and I'd like you to do something to go along with that.” I thought, “Roses, oh my, I don't want to do anything representational.” I was leaving for a ski trip with husband. While I was skiing and I was on the slopes, this Greek song came to mind about roses. The word in Greek for rose is “30 petals” and I thought, “Oh, that's what I'll do. I'll do a distillation of the rose. I'll do three petals,” and I did. I did a bracelet that had three petals that were fanned out but connected at the base, and a necklace and earrings that way. I showed it to Bill who said, “Well, it doesn't look a rose, but I love it,” and he ordered 60 pieces of it in brass, nickel, copper and also in Lucite. Often my inspiration is from nature. I never walk through the park—I walk through the park a lot—without seeing something that I want to translate into gold. The idea is flowers and leaves are ephemeral. That's it. They give us lots of joy when they're here, but then to capture them in gold is wonderful because that makes them last longer. So, my inspiration comes from nature as well, but it can be a thought; it can be a song; it can be the way a banister curves. I don't know. Sharon: As you're working, is the vision in your head? Are you saying, “That's not the way I drew it out or did it on the computer”? Tess: Yes, that happens a lot. It happens a lot that it doesn't translate. Paper and pencil are very different from three-dimensional things. So, it happens a lot, and if I don't like it then I start again. But often I do like it. Sharon: Are people ordering commissions from you, or are they ordering straight from your website or Instagram? How is that working? Tess: They do both. They either buy what they see or—and this is very gratifying—people will bring me their old pieces that have sentimental value. They don't want to get rid of them, but they are not their style; they're not attractive. I usually remake them. I redesign them. I like that because there's something about the energy of someone else having worn this. It becomes a legacy, but it's still my expression. Sharon: That must be a lot of fun. Tess: It is. I had an aunt when I was a young child who would send me jewelry from Greece. She would say to me, “I wore it before giving it to you because I want my energy to go with it,” and I've never forgotten that. Sharon: There is that energy. It's also a testament to you because you walk down the street and so many jewelry stores say, “Bring us your old pieces and remake them.” They're looking for something they know only you can deliver on that remake. Tess: Yes, they want me to do it in my expression. The jewelry stores do very beautiful work, obviously, but they're not always very customized or individual or taking you into consideration. Sharon: And that was exactly the question I was going to ask. Are you working side-by-side in a sense with the person who asks you for something? Tess: Absolutely. Of course it's my expression because that's why they came to me, but I never impose something. It has to be something we mutually agree on and is going to work. Sharon: Have you ever made something that somebody said, “Oh, that's not what I had in mind at all”? Tess: No. Sharon: Well, that's a pretty good track record. When you were working on the runway, like you were talking about the rose theme, did each model on the runway have a Lucite rose and one had a silver rose? Tess: Yeah, it was like that. The trick also was that I was working with a number of designers for the same season. I had to be very careful not to have one look like the other, which wasn't difficult because they were all different looks. When I was doing Galanos and Bill Blass and Oscar de la Renta and Giorgio di Sant'Angelo all in the same season, that all had to look different, and it did because they had different personalities and their clothes were different. Sharon: Did you ever have anybody say—no names, but “If you're doing work for John Smith, then I really—" Tess: No, no one ever said that to me. Sharon: Are you selling now to stores? Tell us about your business today, Tess Sholom Designs. Tess: I have been approached by a former buyer at Bergdorf's who would like to introduce me to the buyer now. So, we'll see. I haven't tried to do retail yet because it's different, but they're willing to do one-of-a-kind. As long as someone is willing to do one-of-a-kind, it's different. In the past, retail wanted the whole story; they wanted multiples, but retail has changed. That's one thing, but the other thing is I mostly do private sales like events. Sharon: Is it mostly word of mouth? Besides social media, let's say if you're doing a private event in New York, how are they hearing about you? Tess: Right. I have a salesperson and a media person who scouts out these things for me. Sharon: Wow! That's great. That must be very gratifying to meet people and talk to them about your pieces, give them your take on them. Tess: That's one of the best parts of this, aside from the joy of making the jewelry: dealing with a customer who loves the jewelry and who loves how it makes them feel. Jewelry can really be transformative. It enhances your essence. It's beautiful so it reflects your beauty. People respond to that, and that's extremely gratifying. I had a customer once who said to me that normally when she goes to a restaurant, she gets up to go the powder room and she walks through the space with her head down. One night she was wearing my necklace, and she said she put her head up and walked to the bathroom, the walkway she had to go through, and she felt wonderful. That made me feel good because it did something for her. It's not superficial. Jewelry is not superficial. As I said before, it can be transformative. It can be commemorative. It can make you happy; it can enhance you, make you feel good about yourself. Sharon: Yes, it can definitely make you happy. Tess: I remember once I was selling to a banker and his wife in Luxembourg. He's looking at me and he's looking at his wife wearing her earrings, looking back and forth, and I said to him, “I understand your dilemma. You know a lot about finance. You don't know anything about pearls. What you need to know at this point is does your wife feel beautiful wearing the pearls?” Sharon: And that was a sale. Tess: That was a sale because that was all it needed to be. He wasn't buying an estate, and he wasn't putting down his mortgage for the earrings. Obviously, they were good quality; that's not the issue, but I gave him permission to look at what the reality is. The reality is does jewelry make you feel good? It did, and it was reasonable. His wife liked it, and he was happy that he could make his wife happy. Sharon: That's a great way to look at it. Does your wife feel beautiful or does the person feel good in it? Tess: Right. Sharon: At one of these trunk shows, did you ever have a prospect or somebody looking at your jewelry and as they put it on, you just said, “No, that doesn't work”? Tess: Yes, because part of my job is to pair the right piece of jewelry with the customer. That's more important. Even if they walk away with nothing, it's more important to get something that's right for them than not. I do remember an instance when I was at a trunk show years ago in Texas. A woman walked in with her daughter, a long, beautiful, slim girl, and her mother said, “Do you have anything for this strange, long body?” And I said, “Half of the world wants to look like this. Yes.” I saw the girl looking at these thin belts, and I said, “Why don't you try this on?” It was a big, bold brass belt. I watched her as she put it on and looked at herself in the mirror, and you could see the changeover. She was so surprised. She was amazed, but it was the right thing for her. It was totally different from anything she had worn or chosen before. It was right for her and it made me feel good. Sharon: It sounds like you have a natural eye for that. I have interior designer friends who can walk into a room and say, “If you remove that table over there,” whereas I would never think about it. Tess: Right, I guess it helps to have that eye. I love what I do, so I want it to be shown off to its best. The person and the jewelry enhance each other. It's the right thing. Sharon: Well, it sounds like the buyer has the right person, the right advice, the right eye with you looking at them. Tess: We share an interest. Obviously, we both love jewelry. The customer comes in because she loves jewelry and I love it, so we've already got a good meeting ground. Sharon: I'm curious; this is an off-the-wall question perhaps, but do you see any similarities between what you were doing with cancer research early on, or botany and biology, and what you do now? Does any of this reflect in terms of your personality? Tess: I'm trying to think about your question. It always comes down to problem solving. There's always something; it's either a puzzle that needs to be fitted or an obstacle that needs to be overcome. Those are skills that are transferrable from one line of work to another, being able to find the answer. There's always a question. There's an obstacle, sometimes, for the aura of gold to be achieved. So, the ability to think around something and to think out of the box, that's the thread that runs through all of my careers. Sharon: That was the key word I was thinking of, the thread. That was exactly the word that came to mind. Tess, thank you very much. This is very interesting, and you have an interesting journey. Thank you for sharing with us. We really appreciate it. Tess: My pleasure. Sharon: So glad to have you. We will have images posted on the website.

For more than sixty minutes last night, it looked like Ireland could be facing into another pretty embarrassing result against Luxembourg but by the end of the evening, any debate about extending Stephen Kenny's contract had been put to one side (even by Liam Brady). We reflect on a campaign that started out horribly, with Kenny plagued by terrible luck at every turn, and which ended with admittedly less-than-impressive results overall but a massive turnaround in performance levels from a young Irish side. Plus a listener formally requests that Ken apologise to Murph for CERTAIN comments made after the Azerbaijan draw, and Eoin gets explicit.
On OTB Football Saturday this afternoon we took a look ahead to Luxembourg v Republic Ireland, and discussed Stephen Kenny's future. We also talked Solskjaer's situation at Manchester United, and Jack Byrne links back to Shamrock Rovers. Former Irish international striker Simon Cox, Dan McDonnell of the Irish Independent, and Johnny Ward joined John Duggan.

COVID : LA CHINE RECONFINE... – 26/10/21 Invités Pr ANNE-CLAUDE CRÉMIEUX Professeure en maladies infectieuses - Hôpital Saint-Louis Membre de l'Académie de médecine Pr DIDIER PITTET Épidémiologiste, chef du service de contrôle des infections Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève NICOLAS BERROD Journaliste santé – « Le Parisien » SOAZIG QUÉMÉNER Rédactrice en chef du service politique – « Marianne » Pr BRUNO LINA - En direct de Lyon Virologue - CHU de Lyon Membre du Conseil scientifique Après un été presque insouciant, l'ambiance se refroidit sur le front de l'épidémie. Alors que les mesures sanitaires se sont relâchées un peu partout sur fond de vaccination, la pandémie repart à la hausse en Europe qui représente actuellement plus de 55 % des nouvelles contaminations dans le monde. C'est le cas au Royaume-Uni où près de 50 000 cas sont comptabilisés chaque jour. Plusieurs pays sont également déjà en grande difficulté, à l'instar de la Bulgarie où la hausse des cas de Covid-19 submerge le système hospitalier. « Notre capacité en termes d'effectifs et de ventilateurs est presque épuisée, nous allons devoir chercher de l'aide à l'étranger », a alerté le ministre de la santé, évoquant également la possibilité d'un confinement dans le pays, qui a le plus faible taux de vaccination de l'Union européenne. Seuls 24 % de Bulgares sont actuellement totalement vaccinés. En Russie, où l'on compte plus de 1000 morts quotidiens, un niveau inédit depuis le début de l'épidémie, Vladimir Poutine a décrété la quasi-mise à l'arrêt du pays pendant onze jours. Le président russe a également appelé les nombreux récalcitrants à se faire vacciner pour tenter de circonscrire une flambée de Covid-19 hors de contrôle. Au pays des inventeurs du vaccin Spoutnik V, seulement 31 % des Russes sont immunisés. Un échec de la campagne de vaccination reconnu par le Kremlin qui pointe du doigt la responsabilité de la population. Alors qu'en Chine, qui avait quasiment éradiqué l'épidémie sur son sol depuis le printemps 2020, les autorités viennent, elles aussi, de décider le confinement des quatre millions d'habitants de la ville de Lanzhou dans le nord du pays et de demander aux résidents de Pékin de réduire leurs déplacements, en raison d'un rebond des cas d'infection. Attribuée au variant Delta, hautement contagieux, la nouvelle poussée épidémique se serait déjà propagée dans onze provinces ainsi que dans la capitale qui se prépare à organiser les JO d'hiver dans une centaine de jours. Et en France, quelle est la situation ? La courbe est-elle en train de s'inverser ? Après des semaines de baisse, « on assiste à une petite poussée » de l'épidémie en Europe, et donc dans l'Hexagone, a expliqué vendredi le ministre de la Santé. Olivier Véran a une nouvelle fois rappelé la nécessité de maintenir les gestes barrières pour contenir la pandémie, malgré les bénéfices de la vaccination, mais aussi l'importance pour les personnes de plus de 65 ans ou immunodéprimées de faire une 3ème dose de rappel. Selon les chiffres communiqués par le ministre, seulement 100 000 doses de rappel sont effectuées quotidiennement. Un chiffre insuffisant d'après le gouvernement qui s'interroge sur les moyens de convaincre les Français éligibles à une 3ème dose et n'écarte pas la possibilité de l'intégrer au pass sanitaire. Interrogé sur le sujet, Jean Castex a ainsi expliqué que la décision était soumise à la Haute Autorité de Santé. « A la HAS de nous dire si nous devons ou non étendre l'éligibilité du pass à la troisième dose. L'avis est sollicité » a affirmé le Premier ministre en marge d'un déplacement au Vatican le 18 octobre dernier. Mais d'ici là, le pass sanitaire devrait faire l'objet d'une âpre bataille au Palais du Luxembourg. Car si à l'issue de débats souvent électriques, marqués par des divisions au sein même de la majorité, l'Assemblée nationale a donné un premier feu vert au projet de loi "vigilance sanitaire", avec la possibilité de recourir au pass sanitaire jusqu'au 31 juillet 2022, au Sénat, Sénateurs LR et PS entendent restreindre l'utilisation du pass aux départements où moins de 75 % de la population totale est vaccinée. Le dispositif ainsi encadré ne durerait que jusqu'au 28 février, et non au 31 juillet comme le demande le gouvernement. Alors assiste-t-on à une reprise de l'épidémie ? Faut-il craindre une 5ème vague généralisée ? Enfin à l'heure où l'OMS s'agace de l'iniquité vaccinale dans le monde, où en est le mécanisme de distribution des vaccins Covax ?

Nick is joined by Racing Post senior writer Lee Mottershead to discuss the latest news from around the horseracing world. They begin by discussing the news from Australia that leading Cox Plate fancy Gold Trip (a European import) would likely be withdrawn from the race as he had not satisfied the veterinary check, despite trainers David Eustace and Ciaran Maher plus rider Damien Oliver being more than happy with the horse. Nick talks to an obviously frustrated Eustace and discusses the implications for the international future of the country's biggest races. Nick and Lee look ahead to the weekend, consider the fields sizes at Cheltenham, ponder the likely brilliance of Aidan O'Brien's two year old Luxembourg and talk to Charlie Johnston, the assistant trainer of his chief rival in the Vertem Futurity, Royal Patronage. They also continue the prize money/fixtures debate, noting the intervention of significant political figures. Later in the show, Nick catches up with Thoroughbid founder Will Kinsey, who has details of their latest online auction.
