In 2005, “Dr. Sam” discovered what turned out to be the first pyramids in Europe near the town of Visoko, Bosnia-Herzegovina. In 2008, Dr. Osmanagich hosted an archaeological conference in Sarajevo which fueled controversy about his discovery dividing the archaeological community. He will host the second archaeological conference in September of 2012 in Sarajevo.

To date the excavation has yielded 5 pyramids of various sizes as well as a vast labyrinth of underground tunnels and a pyramid that is 30% larger than the largest structure on the Giza Plateau. Dr. Osmanagich is principal investigator of this project which has yielded some of the pioneering electromagnetic measurements in the pyramids.

High unemployment rate, rising taxes drag down S Africa's Economic Freedom rank

South Africa has fallen from its position of 93 last year in the Economic Freedom of the World Annual Report, released by the Free Market Foundation (FMF) and Canada's Fraser Institute, to 99 this year. This marks a further fall from the country's best ranking of forty-seventh in 2000. FMF director Eustace Davie attributes South Africa's worsening ranking among 165 jurisdictions monitored, to the deterioration of economic activity in the country, including its high unemployment rate. Fraser Institute resident fellow and coordinator of the Economic Freedom Network Fred McMahon adds that, when jurisdictions increase taxes and regulations, the public become less economically free, which means even slower economic growth and less investment. In particular, South Africa has declined from a score of 5.99 to 6.14 in terms of size of government, while the legal system and property rights score improved to 5.95 from 5.09 the previous year. On the access to sound money aspect, South Africa declined from a score of 8.21 to 8.24, and from 5.8 to 6.6 in terms of freedom to trade internationally. South Africa's score on regulation of credit, labour and business has also declined to 6.78 this year, from 7.16 in the prior year. On the other side of the spectrum, Hong Kong and Singapore have maintained their rankings atop the index, at first and second place, respectively, while Switzerland, New Zealand, Denmark, Australia, the US, Estonia, Mauritius and Ireland make up the remainder of the top ten. The Economic Freedom report was launched in 1996 to measure the ability of individuals to make their own economic decisions. FMF analyses several indicators such as regulation, size of government, property rights, government spending and taxation to produce its findings. This year's report captures 2020 data and, therefore, the effect of Covid-19-related restrictions. Among the ten lowest-rated countries are the Democratic Republic of Congo, Algeria, Congo-Brazzaville, Iran, Libya, Argentina, Syrian Arab Republic, Zimbabwe, Sudan and Venezuela. This year, South Africa ranks lower than its counterpart India, at ninetieth, but better than other counterparts Russia, which ranked ninety-fourth, Brazil, ranking at 114 and China, at 116. Moreover, McMahon says, where people are free to pursue their own opportunities and choices, they lead more prosperous, longer and healthier lives, with more political and civil liberties to boot. FMF associate Neil Emerick says that, while South Africa is a lively destination for investment, its large government, closed economy and overregulation are holding it back from realising this potential. Business and macroeconomic analyst Phumlani Majozi says South Africa's government continues to believe it can solve the country's problems by spending more. This while State-owned entities keep receiving billions of rands of bailouts. “We need government intervention in health, transport and energy infrastructure development, and for it to allow for the conducting of business easily and competitively,” he notes. Davie concludes that there is no reason why South Africans should not be as economically free or even more free than people living in Estonia, Mauritius or Ireland. “The people of South Africa should demand that their country set out to become one of the freest in the world, just as Mauritians set out to do and achieved in 20 years.”

Sega is a product of an unusual history on an island that has been populated by humans for less than five centuries. In this episode we meet three musicians traveling the world to highlight environmental issues through music as part of the Small Island Big Song project.

In the 1960s and 1970s, the exposure of Big Tobacco's aggressive lobbying and internal efforts to obscure science showcasing the harmful effects of smoking changed U.S. public opinion of the industry and of product safety protocols, both of which had largely obscured these harms from public view for decades. Public awareness grew, triggering regulation on disclosure related to political influencing strategies, marketing tactics, and transparency regarding the devastating toll of tobacco products on many communities, including and especially children. As similar approaches to assessing the public health impacts of Big Oil and Big Pharma, among other industries, have gained traction in recent decades, Dr. Mélissa Mialon's new book, Big Food & Co (Thierry Souccar Editions, 2021), adds the amalgamation of multinationals and transnational supply chains that make up Big Food, to that list. Rising health inequities across race, class, and geography are subtle, yet central themes throughout Dr. Mialon's meticulous accounting of a complex puzzle in which the marketing and distribution strategies of soft drink companies and ultra-processed food manufacturers are quietly but steadily ushering in a new globalized era of related public health crises – measured by increasing rates of of diabetes, cancers, and heart disease, etc– a crisis that has long been felt in the United States. Whether branding t-shirts and games at summer camps in France for underprivileged children or blanketing entire streets in Mauritius with the unmistakable bright red and white flag of Coca-Cola, Dr. Mialon describes a taxonomy of commercial determinants of health common to nearly every example – whether multinational food companies' policy advocacy in Colombia, public-private partnerships in Brazil, or culturally responsive branding for holidays in Southern Africa. Between academic research and investigative journalism, the survey of trends in Big Food's operation, marketing, and regulatory capture, offered throughout the book are additionally grounds for laying out a policy roadmap with public health indicators at the center of a wide range of potential reforms including campaign finance and heightened disclosure protocols for public-private partnerships to mitigating conflicts of interest in scientific studies related to food, agriculture, and health, among many others. Dr. Mélissa Mialon is Associate Professor at Trinity College Dublin, in Ireland. She is a food engineer with a PhD in nutrition and co-coordinates the « Governance, Ethics and Conflicts of Interest in Public Health » (GECI-PH) network, based out of the American University of Beirut in Lebanon.

As similar approaches to assessing the public health impacts of Big Oil and Big Pharma, among other industries, have gained traction in recent decades, Dr. Mélissa Mialon's new book, Big Food & Co (Thierry Souccar Editions, 2021), adds the amalgamation of multinationals and transnational supply chains that make up Big Food, to that list. Rising health inequities across race, class, and geography are subtle, yet central themes throughout Dr. Mialon's meticulous accounting of a complex puzzle in which the marketing and distribution strategies of soft drink companies and ultra-processed food manufacturers are quietly but steadily ushering in a new globalized era of related public health crises – measured by increasing rates of of diabetes, cancers, and heart disease, etc– a crisis that has long been felt in the United States. Whether branding t-shirts and games at summer camps in France for underprivileged children or blanketing entire streets in Mauritius with the unmistakable bright red and white flag of Coca-Cola, Dr. Mialon describes a taxonomy of commercial determinants of health common to nearly every example – whether multinational food companies' policy advocacy in Colombia, public-private partnerships in Brazil, or culturally responsive branding for holidays in Southern Africa. Between academic research and investigative journalism, the survey of trends in Big Food's operation, marketing, and regulatory capture, offered throughout the book are additionally grounds for laying out a policy roadmap with public health indicators at the center of a wide range of potential reforms including campaign finance and heightened disclosure protocols for public-private partnerships to mitigating conflicts of interest in scientific studies related to food, agriculture, and health, among many others.
