Climate Change and the Law of the SeaSea level rise due to climate change will directly impact at least 70 countries, many of them small, low-lying island nations. Though their contribution to climate change is very little, they face some of its worst consequences. This is not a new issue, and tension has been building since the late 1980s. In 1989, the Maldives, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, issued an international declaration, the first of its kind, calling attention to sea level rise due to climate change, and how it impacts its land. Island states often have small land area, but, under international law, have jurisdiction over a larger area of their surrounding seas for economic purposes. What if an island loses territory due to sea level rise? If so, it could lose its economic zone. This is also a national security question; could another nation then legally take over this economic zone? Currently, the international law framework, called the Law of the Sea, does not answer these questions even though the  livelihoods of millions are at issue. A 2021 declaration by Pacific Island nations calls for maritime boundaries to stay where they are now regardless of sea level rise. However, this requires the endorsement of other nations. The United Nations, up until now, has paid comparatively little attention to this issue, but, through its study group on sea-level rise, the UN is aiming to engage non-low-lying island nations, and attempt to resolve these and other questions. Climate Refugees Need Protected Status Under the LawBy 2050, there could be 1.2 billion climate refugees, according to the international think tank International Environmental Partnership. But these refugees often do not fit the legal definition of “refugee”, including individuals displaced in the United States. Becoming a “refugee” under the law confers special status; it protects from deportation, for example. In 2013, a man from Kiribati, a country undergoing severe sea level rise, applied for refugee status as a “climate refugee” in New Zealand. His application was denied, and he was repatriated to Kiribati. The man subsequently filed a complaint with the UN Convent of Civil Liberties, claiming his right to life had been violated. The man lost his case, because his life was not found to be under immediate danger. However, the wording of the UN's ruling in the case asserts that those fleeing a climate crisis cannot be sent home, thereby creating a non-binding international construct. This case illustrates some of the complexities raised by climate refugees and how they are currently viewed in many of the world's legal systems.  Sea level rise is not only an issue of the future but already an issue of the present. Who is Dr. Nilufer Oral?Dr. Nilufer Oral is director at the Center for International Law at the National University of Singapore. She is also a member of the International Law Commission at the United Nations and co-chair of the study group at the UN on sea level rise in relation to international law. Read MoreSink or swim: Can island states survive the climate crisis? | | UN NewsStatement by Ms. Nilüfer Oral, Co-Chairs of the Study Group on Sea level rise -- Interaction with members of the ILC 2020Nilufer Oral--COP 26International Law as an Adaptation Measure to Sea-level Rise and Its Impacts on Islands and Offshore Features | Request PDF

《小酒馆·大世界》-世界各处的文化和精彩,在小酒馆触手可得哦~ 欢迎关注公号【璐璐的英文小酒馆】,可以查看更多精彩内容,查看英语全文稿哦~Hi everyone, today we have in our studio two guests from Italy. They're both wine experts and entrepreneurs themselves who have extensive experience in the wine industry, and also in promoting Italian wines, including Prosecco in China. First of all, let's say hi to Matteo and Mikelino. Hi, hi, everyone.Hello, hello, everyone.And welcome to the studio. First of all, I would like to ask both of you to give us a little bit of an idea of what you do. Could Matteo? So I actually work for one of the biggest importers and distributors in China. I work as a senior brand manager, not just for Italian wines, but for more than 28 brands from all around the world. And I'm in China 4 years, 20 years' experience in the wine business.And based on our previous talk, you basically grew up with the entire wine culture, right?My family owns a small vineyard, a place called Valdobbiadene, which is the core area of Prosecco; and I worked in a winery before for 10 years, I worked in Maldives and Dubai as in hospitality. I worked in New York, and then a little bit in Moscow for a short period of time, and Shanghai. OK, a true expert. And Mikelino.I am an entrepreneur. I live in Shanghai, I work in Shanghai, people know me here as the wine guy, which is the name of my company, I thought it was suitable. I live in China since 15 years and I am a sommelier graduated by the Italian Sommelier Association. And wine is my passion.Mikelino, you said wine is your passion, and this is very interesting because when I talk to people who work in the wine industry, this tends to be the general feeling, general sentiment, a lot of people they would say you think about wine, it's not just drinking, it's about socializing, it's about a lifestyle. Would you agree with that?It is, actually, I didn't always work in wine, but in the very end, the life brought me to work with my passion. And also was… many people ask me and say, why don't you work in wine? Because people were referring to me for some wine suggestions. Where do I buy this? Where do I get that?And finally, I decided to move on and around 10 years ago, I started devoting my life to this business, even my wife finds it boring because she says I always talk about wine. Honestly speaking from a little bit of my own experience as a drinker, a lover of wine, obviously I'm no way an expert. I always remember before the pandemic I used to go to Italy a lot, I absolutely loved the country. When I went to Italy, sometimes I would join my local friends or new friends for aperitivo. Am I correct in pronouncing that?Yes. You pronounced it correctly. Aperitivo is a very important moment our social life in Italy, no matter if it's during the day or during the evening.So what is aperitivo?Aperitivo is a culture. Basically, it's the moments when usually finish your work or during weekends you get with your friends, usually before dinner, and you have a drink altogether, it's a very social thing.And then this actually can get into a dinner thing as well. Which why years ago aperitivo was emerged with the word dinner, which is ‘Cena' in Italian. And we started calling it ‘Apericena' which is ‘Aperitivo' and ‘Dinner'.So it basically you start with a drink, then use some small bites and cold cuts and pizza, and then goes into a 2 or 3 hours... 2 or 3 hours?It can be, yeah, I mean, back in the day when I was in Italy…but that happened when I go back in my hometown now as well, can be we meet at 6, 6:30, and then we can start drinking and eating and finishing out at 11. That's… sometimes it's quite normal.I guess especially on a hot summer day, when people are just basically standing around, maybe even outside and then just mingling with one another.No. That happens also in winter. It's every season…Four-season thing.It is every season.Every season.In summer, it's definitely easier because… Regardless of weather....

Connaissez-vous notre site ? www.lenouvelespritpublic.frUne émission de Philippe Meyer, enregistrée au studio l'Arrière-boutique le 23 septembre 2022.Avec cette semaine :Nicolas Baverez, essayiste et avocat.François Bujon de l'Estang, ambassadeur de France.Matthias Fekl, avocat et ancien ministre de l'Intérieur.Lionel Zinsou, ancien Premier ministre du Bénin et président de la fondation Terra Nova.LA RÉCESSION QUI MENACEDans leurs prévisions publiées fin juillet, les experts du FMI expliquaient qu'une chute de l'activité n'est pas leur scénario central (malgré le recul enregistré au printemps) avant d'affirmer cependant que « le risque de récession est particulièrement proéminent en 2023 » tandis que l'agence de notation Fitch évoque des « probabilités croissantes de récession ». Tout dépend de ce que l'on appelle récession. Il fut un temps où les prévisionnistes parlaient de récession mondiale lorsque la croissance annuelle du PIB descendait au-dessous de 3 %. Avec cette définition large, une récession mondiale paraît désormais inévitable dès cette année, l'an prochain au plus tard. Il en va autrement avec la définition désormais la plus courante de la récession : une baisse de la production sur une année. Contrairement à ce qui s'est passé en 2009 après la crise financière, puis en 2020 avec le Covid, l'activité mondiale devrait tout de même progresser en 2022, mais à un rythme bien moindre que lors des deux dernières décennies, où la moyenne fut proche de 4 % l'an.Selon le gouverneur de la Banque de France, François Villeroy de Galhau, une récession ne devrait pas intervenir en France en 2022, mais « pour 2023, rien ne peut être exclu dans la période de grandes incertitudes que nous vivons, mais nous nous attendons pour la France à un net ralentissement plutôt qu'à une récession ». Un scénario d'autant plus probable que la Banque centrale européenne (BCE) envisage de relever ses taux de 75 points de base en septembre face à une inflation qui frôle les deux chiffres. De son côté, la Première ministre prévoit que la France atteindra le pic de l'inflation « au cours de l'année 2023 ». Le 15 septembre, la Banque de France a publié ses prévisions de croissance pour les deux ans à venir. Si elle s'attend à une solide croissance du produit intérieur brut de 2,6 % cette année, proche de la prévision du gouvernement (2,7 %), elle table désormais sur une croissance du PIB de 0,5% en 2023 contre 1,2% en juin dernier dans son scénario central. En cas de fermeture complète du robinet du gaz russe et de coupures électriques, l'économie française pourrait plonger en récession estime l'institution bancaire dans son scénario le plus sombre. Les experts de la Banque de France misent cependant sur un franc rebond dès 2024 avec une croissance de 1,8 %. Au cœur de cet optimisme, la prévision d'une nette décrue de l'inflation d'ici deux ans. Pour 2023, la Banque de France s'attend à des hausses de prix encore très élevées, entre 4,2 % et 6,9 %, après 5,8 % en 2022. Mais en 2024, l'inflation redescendrait à 2,7 %.À deux semaines de la présentation du budget 2023, le gouvernement table sur une croissance de 1% pour l'année prochaine contre 1,4% précédemment et exclut pour l'instant le scénario noir d'une récession, même si la conjoncture internationale ne cesse de se dégrader.***LE SOMMET DE SAMARCANDELes 15 et 16 septembre, l'Organisation de coopération de Shanghai (OCS) s'est réunie, pour son 22ème sommet, à Samarcande en Ouzbékistan. Composée à sa création en 2001 de six pays – la Chine, la Russie et quatre États d'Asie centrale (Kazakhstan, Kirghizistan, Ouzbékistan, Tadjikistan) tous issus de l'ex-Union soviétique –, l'OCS regroupe près de la moitié de la population mondiale aujourd'hui (42%). L'Inde et le Pakistan y ont fait leur entrée en 2017 et l'Iran vient d'y être admise. Plusieurs pays frappent à sa porte : Biélorussie, Égypte, Arabie saoudite, Qatar, Bahreïn, Maldives, Émirats arabes unis, Koweït et Birmanie. Sans parler de la Turquie, dont le président, Recep Tayyip Erdogan assistait au sommet. L'OCS visait à ses débuts à assurer la sécurité collective de ses adhérents face aux menaces « du terrorisme, de l'extrémisme et du séparatisme ». Ni organisation d'intégration politique comme l'Union européenne, ni alliance militaire comme l'OTAN, l'OCS conduit cependant régulièrement des exercices antiterroristes communs sous le nom de « Peace mission». Aucune femme ne figurait sur la photo de famille.Alors que le Premier ministre indien a signifié au président Vladimir Poutine que l'heure n'est « pas à la guerre », insistant sur « l'importance de la démocratie, de la diplomatie et du dialogue », le président russe a admis lors de sa rencontre avec son homologue chinois que Pékin avait manifesté des préoccupations sur la guerre en Ukraine. Si la Chine partage la lecture du conflit que promeut Moscou, qui en attribue l'origine à l'extension de l'OTAN en Europe centrale et si elle condamne les sanctions occidentales, elle ne les viole cependant pas et ne fournit ni armes, ni composants industriels à la Russie.Selon Xi Jinping « le monde d'aujourd'hui est loin d'être en paix et la concurrence entre deux orientations politiques, l'une marquée par la solidarité et la coopération, l'autre par la division et la confrontation, se fait avec une acuité croissante ». Le dirigeant chinois considère l'OCS comme l'expression de ce que pourrait être un ordre mondial alternatif à celui sur lequel les Occidentaux s'appuient. Il a appelé ses collègues à « travailler ensemble à la promotion d'un ordre international dans une direction plus juste et rationnelle ». Cependant, l'OCS n'est pas exempte de tensions entre certains de ses membres, à l'instar de l'Inde et du Pakistan, et de l'Inde et de la Chine. Aucun pays d'Asie Centrale n'a reconnu l'annexion de la Crimée par la Russie en 2014. Interprétée comme une tentative de restauration de l'hégémonie russe, l'invasion de l'Ukraine est perçue négativement dans les ex-républiques soviétiques. D'autant plus que la rhétorique russe à l'égard de ces pays d'Asie centrale est devenue plus menaçante et que les tensions se multiplient dans la région comme récemment avec l'Arménie.Vous pouvez consulter notre politique de confidentialité sur https://art19.com/privacy ainsi que la notice de confidentialité de la Californie sur https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Clare Belfrage: Contemplating Time Through Delicate Patterns and Organic Blown Glass Forms

Born in Melbourne and based in Adelaide, Australia, artist Clare Belfrage has maintained a distinguished glassblowing practice for over 30 years. Detailed and complex glass drawings on blown glass forms reflect the high-level skill and mastery of the craft that makes her one of the country's most renowned artists in this medium. Inspired by nature and its various rhythms and energies, Belfrage's exquisite sculptural objects express her fine attention to detail and interest in the minutiae of the natural world. Belfrage states: “As an artist, my point of view is often looking from close up. The big feeling that ‘small' gives me is intimate and powerful. The industry in nature, its rhythm and energy, dramatic and delicate still holds my fascination as does the language and processes of glass.” With a long involvement in education, Belfrage has lectured in the glass programs at the University of South Australia, Ohio State University and Curtin University, Western Australia. A founding member of blue pony studio in Adelaide, Belfrage played the pivotal role of Creative Director at Canberra Glassworks from 2009 to 2013. She is currently an Adjunct Professor at the University of South Australia and has taught numerous workshops throughout Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the United States. Belfrage's work is represented in major public collections including: most of the Australian State Gallery collections, National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, Museum of Arts and Sciences, Sydney, National Art Glass Collection, Wagga Wagga, Corning Museum of Glass, Peabody Essex Museum, Tacoma Museum of Glass and Toledo Museum of Art, USA, Ebeltoft Glass Museum, Denmark, Ernsting Stifltung Glass Museum, Germany, Castello Sforzesco Museum, Italy, Museo do Vidro, Marinha Grande, Portugal and Niijima Glass Museum, Japan. In addition to Australia, Belfrage exhibits regularly in North America, Europe, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Her work was recognized for its innovation and originality in 2005 and 2011 with the Tom Malone Glass Prize presented by the Art Gallery of Western Australia. In 2016, the artist was awarded the inaugural FUSE Glass Prize for Australian and New Zealand glass and in 2018 was selected as the South Australian Living Artist Festival feature artist, becoming the subject of the festival's annual monograph, Rhythms of Necessity, written by Kay Lawrence and Sera Waters. She was also named JamFactory Icon of 2018, presenting a solo exhibition for a three-year national tour. With rounded corners and soothing pastel hues, Belfrage's uniquely shaped pieces stand out for their delicate patterns drifting over organic forms. Each of these ethereal designs is “drawn” with glass stringers. The sandblasted and pumiced surface creates a satin finish that really helps to draw the viewer into the layers of pattern, which is quite different from what a reflective surface does. Grids made of softly curving white lines, circular slices, and strips of different colors are just a few of the ways she covers her sculptures. The mesmerizing blueprints contrast the pure simplicity of the sculptural shape, which in turn creates visual depth. Although the artist plans carefully and there is a lot of preparation that goes into each piece, she works consciously with the fluid nature of the material and process so the pattern stretches, softens, and opens up – an important aspect of the final piece. She told Modern Met: “When absorbed by the natural world, the enduring inspiration for my work, part of my experience of wonder is the contemplation of Time – the way Time is described, measured, and held. It can feel frozen or captured, it can feel sped up, dense with energy, it can feel fleeting, and it can feel endless. The rhythms within the natural world that I observe and work to bring into my making, mark out movement through Time, evidence of the life that is lived, expressing growth, aging, shedding, mapping and binding.” Belfrage is currently completing a two-week residency at the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah, NSW, Australia, which will result in a solo exhibition to take place in August 2023. She will be exhibiting with Adrian Sassoon Gallery at the art fair, PAD London Design + Art 2022, October 11 – 16 in Berkeley Square, London, and with Sandra Ainsley Gallery in Toronto from October 27 – 30, 2022. Belfrage will also participate in a three-week residency followed by a solo exhibition at Soneva Fushi Art Glass in the Maldives in December 2022.

Joseph Conrad si affacciava alla finestra, Frank Gerhy guardava nuotare delle carpe nella vasca da bagno, Bob Dylan invece mangiava pancakes e succo d'acero.Ciascuno di noi può mettersi davanti alla finestra – o alla vasca da bagno – per esplorare quel territorio ricco e illimitato che è la nostra vita di tutti i giorni.A cura della Scuola HoldenEmiliano Poddi"Quest'ora sommersa"Feltrinelli Editorehttps://www.feltrinellieditore.it/A centouno anni Leni Riefenstahl nuota tranquilla a quindici metri di profondità, alle Maldive: è la sua ultima immersione, l'ultima volta in cui potrà catturare con i suoi scatti le creature della barriera corallina. Appena dietro di lei c'è Martha Krems, biologa marina trentanovenne, che ha il compito di scortarla sott'acqua. In effetti, Martha non è lì per caso: è da moltissimo tempo che segue Leni, sia pure a distanza. Per anni ha raccolto notizie sulla "regista di Hitler" e le ha riordinate in schede divise per argomenti – citazioni, abitudini sessuali, incidenti... –, tutti disperati tentativi di classificazione cui quella donna enigmatica sembra regolarmente sfuggire. In particolare Martha è ossessionata da Tiefland, un film che Leni ha girato nel 1941 utilizzando come comparse alcuni internati – soprattutto bambini – di un campo per rom e sinti, destinati, finite le riprese, alla deportazione ad Auschwitz. E ora, finalmente, Martha ha l'occasione di studiare Leni da vicino, di tornare indietro, di starle addosso. Di scoprire, forse, perché nel '41 ha fatto quello che ha fatto alla sua famiglia. Quest'ora sommersa mette in scena il confronto fra due donne diverse per età, origini, indole e scelte etiche. Autoritaria, manipolatrice, pronta a sacrificare qualunque cosa all'estetica la prima; figura dolorosa la seconda, che sceglie la vita contro la morte, la biologia contro la storia: entrambe immerse in un mondo liquido dove il respiro e i movimenti seguono altre leggi, dove un'ora può dilatarsi fino ad abbracciare cento anni.Emiliano Poddi è nato a Brindisi nel 1975. Autore teatrale e radiofonico, ha scritto i romanzi Tre volte invano (selezione Premio Strega), Alborán e, per Feltrinelli, Le vittorie imperfette (2016). Insegna alla scuola Holden di Torino. Eleonora Sottili"Senti che vento"Einaudi Editorehttps://www.einaudi.it/«La nonna tagliava il salame e distribuiva le fette. A un tratto mi disse: "Sembra di essere in guerra. Tu saresti morta subito, in guerra". Aveva ragione, lo sapevo. Poi aggiunse: "Certo all'aceto potevate pensarci". Quindi, come se le cose fossero collegate: "Mi sa che domenica prossima non ti riesci mica a sposare". Fu allora che la mamma fece scattare la lama del suo coltello a serramanico, e per un momento mi sembrò che le scappasse un sorriso». Nonna Fulvia ha i capelli di ferro e ruggine, non sopporta le zucchine liguri e definisce Agata "un nientino". La mamma invece sta china sui suoi atlanti a incrociare paralleli e meridiani, cercando instancabile un posto dove sua figlia potrebbe avere una vita sorprendente. «Io con loro non c'entro niente», pensa Agata. Tanto domenica si sposa e finalmente sarà al sicuro, lontana dalle intermittenze dell'una e dalle forze contrarie dell'altra. Ma il fiume arriva a confondere i confini tra le cose, e Agata scopre di essere molto piú vicina alle donne della sua famiglia di quanto credeva. Un segreto, del resto, ce l'ha anche lei: la collezione di appartamenti vuoti dove ha fatto l'amore con un ragazzo che non è lo stesso che sta per sposare. Con una scrittura nitida e leggera, piena di magia, Eleonora Sottili ci racconta di come l'inaspettato s'intrufola nella nostra vita regalandoci le chiavi per aprire nuove porte. Perché esistono tante versioni di noi, e quando si rompono gli argini è il momento di chiedersi se cambiare rotta. Fuori piove, non smette di piovere, il fiume straripa e corre dappertutto. Mentre i vicini si imbarcano direttamente dal balcone, Agata s'incanta a guardare l'acqua che allaga il pianterreno, lambisce il divano, sommerge la libreria. La casa ora è una nave incagliata dove lei, sua madre e sua nonna mangiano salame al buio, pescano i pomodori dell'orto con il retino, spostano gli oggetti, scoperchiano sorprese. Intanto i regali di nozze navigano indisturbati, e il vestito da sposa volteggia candido al centro della stanza. In questo tempo liquido e sospeso, Agata scopre di non essere l'unica a custodire un segreto.IL POSTO DELLE PAROLEAscoltare fa Pensarehttps://ilpostodelleparole.it/

Paul Webb began his career at a famous zoo that specialized in captive breeding programs for rare species. After eight years left with the conviction that captive breeding has no role to play in the conservation of species or habitat. Worked for the ruling family of a Gulf State for many years, turning half the country into a wildlife reserve, and looking after the largest herd of Arabian Oryx in the world, which was by then extinct in the wild. Organized and funded numerous projects all over the world to preserve the rare flora and fauna and participated in field work to secure the habitat of numerous species. Produced a book on the wildlife and environment of the region for the ruling family. Spent four years in the remote and forbidden zones of the southern Maldives writing and producing a book on the environment for the President's Office of the Maldives. Now a full-time writer and researcher specializing in the conservation of habitat and wildlife, having recently published my latest work 'The Second Level of Extinction - Wildlife, Conservation and the Myth of Captive Breeding in Zoos' and am presently working on a volume about the Black-Footed ferret captive breeding and reintroduction scheme by the USFWS.'

What you'll learn in this episode: How Kirsten's international upbringing influenced her taste in jewelry Why relationships are at the heart of Kirsten's business How Portobello Road has changed over the years, and why there's a dearth of good jewelry in the UK right now Why buying well is the key to selling well as a dealer Why the best business strategy is to sell jewelry you love About Kirsten Everts Kirsten Everts is a jewelry dealer and the founder of FRAM, a jewelry business specializing in buying, selling, and valuing 20th century jewels. Kirsten founded FRAM in early 2018 after completing the Graduate Gemology course at GIA and a further 20 years acquiring experience in fields varying from auction (Christie's, London and Bonhams, Paris) to retail (de GRISOGONO, Geneva) and art advisory (Gurr Johns, London). Kirsten holds a permanent stand on Portobello Road in London, and she participates annually at international jewelry trade fairs in Miami and Las Vegas.  Photos available on TheJewelryJourney.com Additional Resources: Instagram Website Transcript: It's not easy to get a stand on London's Portobello Road, but with tenacity and some luck with timing, jewelry dealer Kirsten Everts scored a permanent spot to sell her unusual 20th century jewels. Since then, Kirsten has found a group of loyal clients who love “weird” jewelry as much as she does. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about why Portobello Road is changing; her strategies for choosing the best vintage jewelry; and why she will never sell another style of jewelry, even if it means making less money. Read the episode transcript here.    Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is a two-part Jewelry Journey Podcast. Please make sure you subscribe so you can hear part two as soon as it comes out later this week. Today, my guest is Kirsten Everts. Kirsten is a jewelry dealer in West London on Portobello Road. If you've been to Portobello Road, you know it's where you can find probably more antiques and vintage finds than anywhere on the planet. Kirsten is originally from Sweden and has lived in several places around the world. We'll hear all about Portobello Road and her jewelry journey that brought her there today. Kirsten, welcome to the program.   Kirsten: Thank you. I'm very pleased to be here.   Sharon: Tell us about your jewelry journey.   Kirsten: It started quite late in life, probably around when I was 13 or 14 years old, when I started accompanying my parents to viewings at Christie's and Sotheby's. I was maybe aping their style a bit. They were more interested in Russian silver and Fabergé and gold boxes. That was the way it was then, but it did pique my interest for small, historical, beautiful objects. Of course, it didn't hurt that they shone brightly, as they were adorned by gems and diamonds.    At the time, I was young and easily enamored by things that shone, and there was these big estimates and results attached to them. I think at the time, the girls my age who were my friends were receiving fairly important gifts in the form of a Cartier love bangle or maybe a Chopin ring. It may have bothered other people to not get them, but it certainly never bothered me because I started to develop a fairly individual and non-branded taste at the time, even though this was a bit later.    Because, as you mentioned, I've grown up in all these countries, some of which are not possible to visit safely today, I saw a lot of ethnic jewelry. It would be brass or copper and silver and feathers and wood. My mother never really wore important jewelry, but she looked absolutely tremendous in this ethnic jewelry. That marked me because not only was she beautiful wearing it, but I understood that these pieces meant a lot more to the tribes they were coming from than a love bangle that has been produced over and over.    So, that's a little bit about how it started. It evolved later with studies in art history and applied arts. I was studying in Holland, and the applied arts and jewelry were being taught in certain modules. That really piqued my interest because post-war Dutch jewelry history has a lot to do with industrial forms and shapes and materials, and they were so out there. I realized I was actually very attracted to big, whacky and unique one-off pieces. So, it grew from there.   Sharon: This sounds like Swedish. You were born in Sweden—   Kirsten: Actually—I'm sorry to interrupt you—I was born in Holland. My mother's Norwegian, so that's a common mistake. Because they were diplomats, we traveled to these countries. I was happier looking at semiprecious stones, agates and wooden, beautifully handmade silver torques than more traditional jewelry, I suppose.   Sharon: You were close to ethnic jewelry. Were you in Iran?    Kirsten: Yes. I was between all sorts of countries, but when I was 13, 14, we were living in Pakistan and India. There were trips to Afghanistan, but there was a lot of discovery of the country itself. My parents made sure we didn't escape at Christmas to the Maldives. We were there to understand the country, so our trips were very much in the country. As a result, we came across some wonderful things that are now no longer there, sadly. But it was always a lovely thing to come across these tribes and maybe buy a silver torque or a big pair of earrings that they wear so well. Of course, now in hindsight, with a little bit of knowledge, I can only imagine that Alexander Calder would have been influenced by the shapes and forms I saw then. It's just beautiful, big, bold things that really meant something to them.   Sharon: You say you came to it late, but it's something that started early for you in terms of—   Kirsten: Maybe I shouldn't consider it late. I think early teens is quite late. Some people say they were inspired by their mother's jewelry collection when they were five. I had none of that. It came and grew slowly and much more in my 20s, when it was presented by a professor and there was an actual module concentrating on these things. I didn't ever study the history of jewelry. That comes in free time when I feel like reading about something. Possibly like most of us, I'm quite self-taught when it comes to proper history. But yeah, maybe you're right; maybe it wasn't that late.   Sharon: Yes, people do start with it sometimes with their mother's jewelry box. My mom didn't have a jewelry box. Did you go into art history because it was the closest thing to jewelry or just because you love art history?   Kirsten: It's more embarrassing than that, really. I went into art history because at the time, it was an easy thing to study. I didn't know what I wanted to study, and it was an easy choice. My parents are artistic. We traveled a lot. There was a lot of culture growing up. It seemed to make sense to put these paintings and sculptures into a historical context. It was a wonderful study to do. If I look back now, I should have done it now rather than then, because it's such a wonderful thing to study at a later age when we have more maturity. So, it was more a default because I wasn't going to be a doctor or an engineer, and this seemed to be wonderful. It piqued a great interest in all sorts of things. Being able to put a painting or a bronze into a certain time lapse is quite a nice thing.   Sharon: As part of this, did you ever make jewelry? Were you a bench jeweler or a maker?   Kirsten: No. I did a course a couple of years ago in London because I found it important to understand how difficult it was. I thought that might let me understand the value of the piece or the workmanship behind it. I was thinking you need to get your hands dirty to understand it more. I did this ring course. It was a one-day thing. I'm so happy I did it, but it takes so much patience and a certain amount of creativity and ability to actually work certain metals. That was enough for me. I was never going to be a bench worker, but I'm really glad I tried. It took a day to make a ring, and I appreciate handmade jewelry a lot more because of it, because I had to spend this day at the bench.   Sharon: It does take a lot of patience, yes. I'm impressed you made the ring in just one day, because a lot of times it can take three days. The name of your jewelry company is FRAM. What does that stand for?   Kirsten: FRAM means forward or go forth in Norwegian. I thought that was appropriate for a young business that I was starting on my own. It felt like a positive note to it, but the true origin came from the fact that I have a passion for sailing. There's a ship called the Fram, which is in Norway in the Fram Museum. It's a ship that went to the Arctic and the Antarctic in the late 19th century and came back successfully, which can't be said for all expeditions at the time. I thought, “I love boats, especially wooden boats, but I can't put a boat on my business card; no one will understand why I'm doing jewelry. But I can call the business FRAM.” It's easily remembered; it's easily spelled. Actually, as a result, I get called Fram a lot because people don't know my first name. I'm actually quite thrilled by that. It has nothing to do with jewelry; it's just a word that sounds nice.   Sharon: It's memorable. It's easy to remember, but it is like, “Why?” or “What's the connection here?”   Kirsten: Exactly. Well, there's none.    Sharon: Tell us about your business. You're a dealer.   Kirsten: Yes.   Sharon: Tell us about your business, who buys it, how you sell and that sort of thing.    Kirsten: Yes, with pleasure. The business is a small business; it's just me. I started it from scratch after I decided that the company I used to work for and I had nothing left in common. I felt a bit restricted there, and I needed to get this creativity out. It was a little bit haphazard that I left. It was a bit quick. It was a little bit unplanned. I'm very happy being a small business. I would love some feedback from friends, from a colleague at some point, but we're small. Our clients have grown slowly throughout the two years of the pandemic, of course, but we've grown steadily. It's very organic.    They have turned out to be mostly women. I would like to put an age bracket on it, but I can't because it varies from 30 to about mid-70s. They're all very strong, independent women, and they have their own taste. They know exactly what they like, what they can and cannot wear. Some are able to spend more than others. That makes absolutely no difference to me. I like the relationship. I've noticed that the customers I've developed have become friends, almost. We talk about other things. We go to the opera together. We're invited over for dinner. They share stories about their lives. For me, it's a whole package deal. I'm so happy when they have a great piece of jewelry that I believe in, but I also really want to understand them. I don't know if that's possible with all jewelry. Maybe other people have that as well, but I have a feeling I have that quite strongly. Maybe that's because I'm not too expensive, or maybe that's because I meet a lot of them at Portobello with a very friendly dialogue. I don't know, but it seems to be that.   Sharon: Do you have people who buy from you and come back to you?   Kirsten: Yes, I have a lot of return clients who, when they can, will say, “I'd like to buy something unique. Have you got anything at the moment?” I will be very honest with them if I haven't. I can say, “No, but maybe I can find something for you.” That doesn't seem to bother them. If I have a little search in the market, if I can find something unique, that doesn't put anyone off. They are absolutely repeat clients. They don't have to come back every month, but I have noticed that some of them were there in the beginning and are coming back now, and it's four or five years later. They remember you, and I think it's because we have this wonderful, honest and open relationship. I am exactly who I am, and I will not pretend to be anything else. I think that might come across. I'm not pushy or menacing, so they come back.   Sharon: You were in a different business, in the corporate world. Had you been thinking about starting a jewelry dealership or whatever you want to call it?   Kirsten: No. I've always been interested in jewelry. I started in 1998 at Christie's in the jewelry department, and it developed from one jewelry world to the next. It went from valuing pieces as a junior employee at Christie's. Then I moved to Switzerland and I became the stone buyer for a company that did all this black diamond jewelry before black diamonds became what they are now. I bought their stones, so there was a wholesale aspect to that. Afterwards I went back to auction houses and ended up in a company in England doing valuation. It's always been jewelry-based, but I think what happened is in 2018, I thought I had done everything from wholesale to auction to retail. I thought the only thing I could do where I could be free—which is very important to me, to have that freedom—is to start a business, but it had never crossed my mind because it's a scary thing.   Sharon: It's interesting that you did have such a foundation. It is a very scary thing to go out on your own. Was there a catalyst? Was it just like, “It's time”?   Kirsten: I think it was time. I could feel that the company I was with was concentrating much more on paintings and sculptures. I was promised jewelry. It wasn't quite working, and I thought, “I can't go on like this. I'm going to waste my life away.” I was probably in my mid-40s, and I thought it was time to grab life and to do something for myself and to take that responsibility. I thought, “I've had so much experience”—about 20 years up until then—”I'm sure I can make this work. If I don't make it work, then we'll see, but I think it's now the time to go.”    I have to add that when these crossroads or these junctions happen in your life, and it's a big step to take into a deep void—I had very little money in the bank, and I certainly had no clients that were going to come with me. Situations like that sometimes show you that there are one or two people who show up in your life who believe in you or have been in the same position earlier and want to help you. Of course, by helping me, they help themselves, so it's very equal. I think, as it turned out, one client did say, “I've got this jewelry. Can you help me?” And a dealer friend of mine was very kind to help me with Portobello. That was what allowed me to gain some confidence and finances to slowly, slowly make my own way, so to speak, without too much financial damage.   Sharon: Did you target Portobello? Did you say, “That's where I want to be”? Did you sell elsewhere?   Kirsten: No. I didn't know about Portobello because my education in jewelry was more or less abroad. I knew of it. I hadn't ever made the effort to go down there, but I was advised to do it. At the time, Portobello was a lot busier than it is now, especially since Covid. You might remember it much busier. I think I had to go every week for about year to say, “Can I have a stand?” In the end, I got one at the back of the gallery. I think as a newcomer, you're almost seen as fresh meat. I think they didn't really know what I was doing. It was a fairly nerve-wracking experience, especially at 5:30 in the morning, but it turned out well.    It was only recently that I've understood the importance of Portobello. My career was a little bit backwards. I started at a wonderful auction house at Christie's, very protected, and slid down this pole and ended up doing Portobello, which is essentially an antique street market. Of course, I should have done it the other way around, but it so happened this is now, and I enjoy it very much. It's a very steep learning curve to see a piece of jewelry that you have to make an instant decision on because somebody else might buy it if you turn your back. I think there's a great education in—I don't want to say judging—I can't remember the word now, but seeing a person and understanding, “Are they a safe person to deal with? Are they here to steal something? Are they going to actually take this seriously? Where are they from?” I think people knowledge is very important.    What's been wonderful with Portobello is the camaraderie with the other dealers. Something that doesn't make sense in someone else's showcase makes enormous sense in mine, and I understood that you don't always need to buy something. They're happy to lend it to you. It's a very friendly, I'll-scratch-your-back-and-you-scratch-mine situation. Everyone wants to make money at the end, and you do end up working fairly quickly with the people you have a connection with. It's extraordinary. I advise anyone starting or even not starting to do it occasionally. It's just once a month, and I think it keeps it real.   Sharon: That's a good way to say it. It's very hands-on. These are the people buying and selling, whether it's a Christie's or a Portobello.   Kirsten: Yes.   Sharon: Right now you're toward the front of the gallery.    Kirsten: I think I got lucky because during Covid we lost—not literally, but a lot of elderly dealers decided to pack up the business at that moment, especially once it was going on for so long. They chose to go stay in the countryside and open a little shop there or trade from home through e-commerce. Portobello emptied out quite quickly as a result of that, but when we were able to start trading again after four months of severe lockdown, there was a certain amount of us that stayed loyal to Portobello. One, because we had to work, two, because we wanted to, but we were there when we were out of lockdown. It was still very much a scare. As a result of that, I got a very nice stand, I like to think. I don't know why I'm towards the entrance. It's a great location. I think people moved around. There may have been issues with some people getting government funding, others not. I don't know. Maybe different people have different deals with the people who run Portobello, but either way, I ended up in a very nice spot. It's very cold in the winter, but it's lovely in the summer.

Though it's a dying art, today's TSHE crew are acting as your personal travel agents and giving you our top destinations. From the overwater huts of the Maldives, to, surprisingly, the state parks of Ohio, we talk about places we've loved and places we aspire to journey. In fact, we list so many locations, we had to skip our personal travel tips (though we know Bobby just wants to go to the Delta Lounge with Sal). In a power-packed small talk, Ann details her path to evil (mwahaha), Hillary has an ice cream induced panic attack, Meredith is uncharacteristically tongue-tied, and the Pape family is in their final countdown as residents of Rat Alley. Oh, and we've figured out an alternate timeline in which Joe Rogan does not become the scourge of the nation!   TSHE RecommendsWorldle/GlobleThe SandmanConnect with the show!This is your show, too.

Daily News Brief by TRT World

*) US attorney general says 'personally approved' Trump home search US Attorney General Merrick Garland has said he "personally approved" the dramatic raid on former American President Donald Trump's Florida estate. In a highly unusual move, he also requested the warrant justifying the search be made public — though he did not reveal the reason for the search. The Washington Post has reported that federal agents were looking for documents relating to nuclear weapons. It was not clear if such documents were recovered. *) IAEA chief warns of 'grave hour' at Ukraine nuclear plant The head of the UN nuclear watchdog has told the Security Council that the agency must be allowed to inspect Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia (zah-POH-reeja) nuclear plant. Rafael Grossi told an emergency meeting via video feed that fighting between Russian and Ukrainian soldiers near the site sparked a "grave" crisis. The clashes at and around Zaporizhzhia have led to urgent international calls for an end to fighting around the plant, the largest of its kind in Europe. *) Hostage drama at Beirut bank ends after armed man turns himself in A hostage standoff in which a gunman demanded a Beirut bank let him withdraw his trapped savings so that he could pay his father's medical bills ended seven hours later. After hours of negotiations on Thursday, 42-year-old food-delivery driver Bassam al Sheikh Hussein accepted an offer from the bank to receive part of his savings. He did not actually receive any of the money, according to his lawyer. His wife told reporters after his arrest that her husband “did what he had to do". *) Sri Lankan ex-president Rajapaksa arrives in Bangkok after fleeing protests Former Sri Lankan president Gotabaya Rajapaksa has arrived in Bangkok after his visa ran out following a month-long stint in Singapore. The Thai foreign ministry said it received a request from Colombo for the 73-year-old deposed leader to visit and an assurance that he would not seek political asylum. Earlier, Rajapaksa flew into Singapore from the Maldives on July 14 after fleeing a deepening economic crisis and widespread protests in Sri Lanka. And finally… *) Switzerland's mountain pass set to lose all ice within weeks The thick layer of ice that has covered a Swiss mountain pass for centuries will melt away completely within a few weeks, a ski resort has warned. While the ice measured around 50-feet thick in 2012, the ground underneath "will have completely resurfaced by the end of September", the Glacier 3000 ski resort said in a statement. Following a dry winter, the summer heat waves hitting Europe have been catastrophic for the Alpine glaciers, which have been melting at an accelerated rate.
