In the second of our episodes about how progressive victories were won, we're looking at gender equality and why the Nordic nations seem to be so far ahead of most of the world. What is it about the culture, society, and politics of the region? What role did women's movements play? And is there something in the water/snow, or can it inspire us to do better?To help us understand the history and policy of the region, we're joined by Mari Teigen - a research professor at the Institute for Social Research in Oslo. Kristín Ástgeirsdóttir, a former member of Parliament and member of the famous Red Stocking Movement joins us from Iceland, and we're joined by Dr Alison Parken lecturer at Cardiff University Business School and an independent research consultant to understand how the UK can learn from the Nordics—- and how Wales already is.Plus, Geoff quizzes Ed for some advice on a sensitive matter See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Life in Norway Show Episode 59: In the latest podcast episode, I chat with a Latvian who moved to Norway as a child and then decided to stay as a teenager, without his parents. Many guests on the Life in Norway Show have a relatively similar story. Someone who chose to move to Norway in their 20s or 30s because of a job or for love. Ernests Barons moved from Latvia to Norway with his parents at the age of nine. Several years later, his parents decided to return to Latvia. He chose to stay in Norway with his sister. We chat about his decisions, the differences between Latvia and Norway, life in Oslo, and his work for The Human Aspect. Full Show Notes: https://www.lifeinnorway.net/moving-to-norway-as-a-child/
Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Freitag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Neue Corona-Variante in Südafrika entdeckt In Südafrika ist Wissenschaftlern zufolge eine neue Variante des Coronavirus entdeckt worden. Die Variante mit der wissenschaftlichen Bezeichnung B.1.1.529 weise eine sehr hohe Anzahl von Mutationen auf, teilten die Forscher auf einer Pressekonferenz mit. Sie gebe in dem Land "Anlass zur Sorge". Die Wirksamkeit von Impfstoffen gegen die Variante sei noch unklar. Auch Gesundheitsminister Joe Phaahla bezeichnete die Variante als ernsthaft besorgniserregend. Sie sei Ursache für einen exponentiellen Anstieg der gemeldeten Fälle in Südafrika. 500.000 Menschen in Europa durch Corona-Impfung gerettet Die Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) geht davon aus, dass die Corona-Impfungen allein in Europa mindestens einer halben Million Menschen das Leben gerettet haben. Allein bei den über 60-Jährigen seien in rund 30 europäischen Ländern seit Beginn der Impfkampagne insgesamt 470.000 Menschenleben gerettet worden, heißt es in einer WHO-Studie. Jüngere Altersgruppen wurden nicht berücksichtigt. Impfstoffe täten das, was sie versprächen, nämlich Leben zu retten, sagte WHO-Europadirektor Hans Kluge. Ohne die Vakzine wäre die Todeszahl in manchen Ländern doppelt so hoch. RKI registriert abermals Höchststand bei Corona-Neuinfektionen Die Zahl der gemeldeten Coronavirus-Neuinfektionen in Deutschland hat wieder einen Rekord erreicht. Das Robert Koch-Institut meldet 76.414 neue Fälle innerhalb eines Tages. Das sind etwa 500 mehr als am Vortag. Die bundesweite Sieben-Tage Inzidenz steigt auf 438,2 und damit auf den 19. Höchststand in Folge. Am Vortag betrug dieser Wert 419,7. Die Zahl der Todesopfer der Pandemie kletterte um 357 auf 100.476. Angesichts der Lage diskutieren Bund und Länder sowie geschäftsführende und künftige Bundesregierung, ob verschärfte Beschränkungen nötig sind. Grüne benennen ihr Regierungspersonal Die deutsche Umweltpartei Die Grünen zieht mit drei Frauen und zwei Männern in die neue Bundesregierung. Kanzlerkandidatin und Co-Parteichefin Annalena Baerbock wird die erste Frau an der Spitze des Außenministeriums. Co-Parteichef Robert Habeck wird Minister für Wirtschaft und Klimaschutz. Der frühere Parteichef Cem Özdemir soll Landwirtschafts- und Ernährungsminister werden. Die Parteilinke Steffi Lemke übernimmt das Ressort Umweltschutz und Anne Spiegel aus Rheinland-Pfalz wird Familienministerin. Jetzt müssen noch die Mitglieder der Grünen über diese Personalvorschläge entscheiden. Regierungsbildung in Prag verzögert sich weiter In Tschechien liegt Präsident Miloš Zeman nach einem positiven Corona-Test im Krankenhaus. Der 77-Jährige werde dort behandelt, sein Arbeitsprogramm sei ausgesetzt, teilte sein Büro mit. Zeman sollte eigentlich an diesem Freitag den bisherigen Oppositionsführer Petr Fiala zum neuen Ministerpräsidenten ernennen. Zeman war erst wenige Stunden zuvor aus dem Krankenhaus entlassen worden, in dem er seit der Parlamentswahl wegen einer chronischen Erkrankung behandelt worden war. Bis auf weiteres bleibt die bisherige Regierung unter dem Multimilliardär Andrej Babiš geschäftsführend im Amt. Friedensnobelpreisträgerin soll nicht nach Oslo reisen dürfen Die philippinische Regierung will die mit dem Friedensnobelpreis ausgezeichnete Journalistin Maria Ressa womöglich an der Reise zur Preisverleihung nach Oslo hindern. Die Nachrichtenagentur AFP zitiert aus Gerichtsunterlagen, wonach für die 58-Jährige "Fluchtgefahr" bestehe. Ressa habe keinen "zwingenden Grund" für ihre Reise nach Norwegen vorgebracht. In Oslo soll sie für ihre Verdienste um die Meinungsfreiheit ausgezeichnet werden. Die ehemalige CNN-Korrespondentin ist derzeit nur gegen Kaution auf freiem Fuß. Auf den Philippinen drohen ihr wegen Verleumdung bis zu sechs Jahre Gefängnis. Sphinx-Allee in Luxor in Ägypten feierlich wiedereröffnet Mit einer aufwendigen Show ist die antike Sphinx-Allee im ägyptischen Gouvernement Luxor wiedereröffnet worden. Der 2,7 Kilometer lange Weg verbindet die großen Tempel von Luxor und Karnak am Ostufer des Nils. Die restaurierte Allee mache Luxor "zum größten Freilichtmuseum der Welt", sagte Außenminister Chalid al-Anani. Die Straße wurde vor rund 3400 Jahren unter Pharao Amenhotep dem Dritten errichtet. Sie wird beidseitig von rund 1350 Sphinxen mit menschlichen Köpfen gesäumt. Im alten Ägypten wurde sie jährlich zum Opet-Fest als Prozessionsweg genutzt. Entdeckt wurde sie im Jahr 1949.
What does a cup of coffee tell us about Thailand's intricate power relations? Where does the country's monarchy come into this? And why does it matter? Prominent political scientist and NIAS director Duncan McCargo joins Petra Desatova to revisit his famous ‘network monarchy' concept and explain why Thailand should not be seen as a ‘Deep State.' Duncan McCargo is a Professor of Political Science and Director of the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies at the University of Copenhagen. Duncan is well-known for publishing a dozen books and over 100 articles and chapters on Asian politics. His latest books are Fighting for Virtue: Justice and Politics in Thailand (Cornell 2019) and (with Anyarat Chattharakul) Future Forward: The Rise and Fall of a Thai Political Party (NIAS Press, 2020). His 2005 Pacific Review article on Thailand's ‘network monarchy,' which is the subject of this episode alongside his 2021 Pacific Affairs article that revisits this concept, has been extremely influential.

Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Editor in chief David Horovitz and Arab affairs correspondent Aaron Boxerman join Raoul Wootliff on today's podcast. On today's show, we look at Israel's tentative agreement to permit Palestinian cellular companies to set up fourth-generation mobile networks, as part of a series of steps meant to strengthen the Palestinian Authority. Boxerman also fills us in on the takeaways from the PA's donor conference last week in Oslo. We then assess the proposal to enable thousands of illegally constructed homes in Arab Israeli communities to be hooked up to the electricity grid, which passed a vote in a key Knesset committee Tuesday. We look at the mountain of travails facing Moshe Hogeg, the owner of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club and an at-times celebrated Israeli entrepreneur, who has been arrested over a slew of damming fraud and sexual harassment allegations. And finally, we hear about the rise, fall, and imminent repurposing of Atarot's Jerusalem Airport. Discussed articles include: Israel pledges to finally permit long-restricted Palestinian 4G cell service Israel will push states to boost aid to Palestinians at donor confab, minister says Proposal to hook illegally built homes to power grid advances after compromise Long deprived of power in illegally built homes, Arabs hope change finally near Alleged crypto scams, sex offenses, unpaid bills: The claims against Moshe Hogeg Ex-model agency worker details Hogeg's alleged assault on model, says he paid others Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

The landmark $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will restore and expand the United States infrastructure. From improving roads, bridges, and rail, to expanding electric vehicle charging, to developing a more resilient grid and more efficient buildings, or to ensuring clean drinking water for all—this historic investment will spur construction in nearly every community in America. But it's also a tremendous opportunity to reconsider how we build. Since the majority of construction equipment rely on fossil fuels, this sector is ripe for innovations that address climate change and air pollution. A new movement, led by several cities around the world, including Oslo, Norway, is underway to create a market for climate-friendly construction practices like electrified equipment. In this episode of Electrify This!, three experts discuss the global effort to scale clean, electrified construction. Learn how governments, the private sector, and NGOs are working collaboratively to create greater demand for electrified equipment, and hear insights into how these technologies could revolutionize the way we build.Guests: Heidi Sørensen, is the Director of the Climate Agency for the City of Oslo. She was elected to the Parliament of Norway from Oslo in 2001, and went on to become the State Secretary to the Minister of the Environment between 2007-2012.

Are you highly sensitive? Empathetic? Empathic? An empath? Accepting and embodying your empathic nature is an intentional path towards balance and belonging to yourself. Signe Myers Hovem demystifies empathic receptivity, believing that it is not a “gift” or “power” but a feature of one's sensory perception and intuition, an ability that allows us to live in extended communication with nature and humanity. Signe Myers Hovem has created homes on five continents over twenty years, raised four uniquely sensitive children, pursued a special education lawsuit appealed to the US Supreme Court, volunteered in a hospice in Texas and an orphanage in Azerbaijan, worked as a spiritual counselor in Houston Texas, and taught workshops and trainings in the art of being an empath and the power of language in many countries around the world. She splits her time between Boulder, Colorado, and Oslo, Norway. Her new book is The Space In Between: An Empath's Field Guide.
Following last week's conversations on climate change we wanted to talk about the real, tangible ways that we can create this better, greener future through public initiatives. The race to 2030 is on - and the finish line is closer than we might think! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
For en stund siden laget jeg en serie episoder om familiepsykologi. I dag skal jeg tilbake til denne tematikken, og denne gang blir det en slags utbrodering av temaer jeg har vært innom i tidligere episoder. Først og fremst vil jeg snakke litt mer om dobbeltkommunikasjon. Dobbeltkommunikasjon er noe som ofte kjennetegner dysfunksjonelle familier. Barn forvirres når kroppsspråk uttrykker noe annet enn det som blir sagt. Familier har ulikt språk, og noen språkspill er uheldige.På WebPsykologen.nohar jeg en egen kategori som heter Familie og samliv. Der har jeg samlet alle artiklene jeg har skrevet om strukturer og tegn på dysfunksjonelle familier. Jeg har sett på lukkede familiesystemer, familier som ikke kommuniserer følelser, hvordan noen familiemedlemmer får rollen som syndebukk, hvordan skyldforedlingkan være et maktmiddel for å kontrollere andre og hvordan barn av og til fungerer som meglere eller samtalepartnere for sine foreldre på en uheldig måte.I denne episoden, som blir del 13 i serien om familiepsykologi, skal jeg følge opp dette tema og se litt mer på ytre tegn på familieproblemer. Hvordan kan man oppdage eller kjenne igjen tegn på familier som sliter? I en tidligere artikkel, som jeg kalte Ytre tegn på familieproblemer del I, så jeg på hvordan noe familier bagatelliserer sine problemer, hvordan overinvolverte foreldre undergraver barns utvikling av selvstendighet og hvordan følelsesmessig distanserte foreldre påvirker barns utvikling. I denne episoden skal jeg fokusere på konsekvensene av dobbeltkommunikasjon og hvordan fokus på fysisk sykdom kan kuppe familiekommunikasjonen på en uheldig måte.Denne episoden bygger på følgende artikkel:Ytre tegn på familieproblemer del IIDobbelkommunikasjon kan kjennetegne dysfunksjonelle familier.

In his new book In Search of New Social Democracy: Insights from the South - Implications for the North (Zed-Bloomsbury), Olle Törnquist has returned to findings from fifty years of research on democracy and social rights movements in especially Indonesia, India and the Philippines, to address the major puzzle of our time: why the vision about development based on social justice by democratic means has lost ground, and if there are openings. In this episode of the Nordic Asia Podcast Kenneth Bo Nielsen is joined by Olle Törnquist to discuss the main results and arguments in what he calls his endbook. Olle Törnquist is a Swedish global historian and Professor Emeritus of Politics and Development at the University of Oslo, Norway.

Nok en alvorlig voldsepisode i Oslo. En mann ble skutt av politiet da han angrep tilfeldige mennesker på gata. Er det utrygt å være i hovedstaden nå? Nesten all forskning ved norske utdanningsinstitusjoner blir skrevet på engelsk. Nå vil regjeringen ha andelen ned. Men ifølge en forsker kan den gjerne gå opp. Bedrifter må få lov til å kutte i bonuser til ansatte som har sykefravær, sier Høyre. - Straff for sykdom, svarer venstresiden.

Terje G. Simonsen is a Norwegian Historian of Ideas and non-fiction author, specializing in the esoteric and occult. He is educated at the University of Oslo, where he also has taught introductory courses on philosophical and literary works. His dissertation on the anthroposophical journal Janus received much acclaim and was released as a book in 2001. In the prestigious series The Cultural Library and The World's Holy Scriptures, Simonsen has published essays on I and Thou, the mystically inspired main work by the dialogue philosopher Martin Buber, and The First Book of Enoch, an esoteric text from antiquity. Simonsen has received several grants, and is a full member of ESSWE, the European Society for the Study of Western Esotericism.In addition, Simonsen is educated in gestalt therapy and psychosynthesis, and his varied career has also included stints in psychiatry, kindergarten, museums, security, catering etc. Today he works as a freelance writer. Simonsen is also a café aficionado, salsa dancer, amateur pianist and chess player.Since childhood Simonsen has been fascinated by ‘magical' phenomena as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and healing—an interest based on some peculiar experiences of his own as well as strange stories told by friends and family. Later, this fascination led to extensive forays into esoteric and occult traditions, where such phenomena are not seen as chimera but as part of an expanded consciousness, and also into the science about such phenomena, i.e. parapsychology. The result is the present book, an entertaining, colorful and multifaceted good read, endorsed by several of the world's foremost experts in the field – Dean Radin, Stanley Krippner, Jeffrey Mishlove, Jeffrey Kripal etc. - as well as a number of other authors and critics, as e.g. the Pulitzer-prize winner Teresa Carpenter and the New York Times bestselling fantasy-author Herbie Brennan.The book on the paranormal, endorsed by consciousness experts as the best introduction to psychic phenomena, offering the latest scientific research as well as highly compelling anecdotes.A Short History of (Nearly) Everything Paranormal: Our Secret Powers: Telepathy, Clairvoyance and Precognitionhttps://www.amazon.com/Terje-Simonsen/e/B079K5RJPPhttps://www.facebook.com/terje.simonsen.9Join this channel to get access to perks:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHzWqM_Xm-EgRfwt2cbBAHQ/joinConflict Radio - Discord Linkhttps://discord.com/invite/MykTtkvDRMConflict Radio - Episode 140 Philosophy of the Paranormal with Dr. Terje Simonsenhttps://conflictradio.net/
How is music made? Not how do record companies work, but how is music made? And where does it go after we're done with it? According to Kyle Devine, a professor of Musicology at the University of Oslo, we've all been paying far too little to this story, closing our eyes to the environmental implications of our favorite sounds. Kyle talks to Saxon and Sam about his book “Decomposed: The Political Ecology of Music,” an eye-opening exploration of the material infrastructure that lies behind vinyl disks (and internet apps). The cloud, by the way? It's a place. And it burns gas just like the rest of us. [Originally Aired 10.27.21]

01:46:50 Philip Banse Der Konflikt zwischen Israel und den Palästinensern (Muriel Asseburg, SWP) 104 full Der Konflikt zwischen Insrael und den Palästinensern gehört zu den politischen Konstanten des 20. und leider wohl auch des 21. Jahrhunderts: Sehr kompliziert – zumal Deutschland durch den Holocaust da ja auch noch mal eine ganz besondere Stellung einnimmt. In den Nachrichten hört man oft nur News-Fragmente – Gazastreifen, Autonomiebehörde, Oslo, besetze Gebiete, Intifada, Hamas – und ich glaube, es gibt nur wenige, die das wirklich verstehen und zu einem Bild zusammensetzen können. Zu ihnen gehört Muriel Asseburg, Forscherin bei der Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik. Sie hat jetzt ein Buch veröffentlich: Palästina und die Palästinenser. Eine Geschichte von der Nakba bis zur Gegenwart Das Buch schildert den Konflikt sehr leserlich und verständlich – aus palästinenseiscer Perspektive. Ihr könnt diese Interview auch werbefrei hören unter kuechenstud.io/plus – 1000 Dank an alle, die schon dabei sind.

How is childhood experienced in the slums of Bangkok and how does it relate to socio-political processes in Thailand? What role do mothers play in the leadership of the slums? And how can we understand recent mass protests in Thailand through the lens of children's activism? Giuseppe Bolotta gives insights into his recently published book Belittled Citizens: The Cultural Politics of Childhood on Bangkok's Margins (NIAS Press, 2021). This study explores the daily lives, constraints and social worlds of children born in the slums of Bangkok. It examines how slum children define themselves – and are defined by others – in relation to a range of governing technologies, state and non-state actors, and broad cultural politics.

Denne delen er henta fra en lenger tale om nordmenn som hevder seg i verdenstoppen, og at norsk næringsliv skulle gjøre det samme. Konteksten til talen var at det var en krevende økonomisk situasjon i Norge på denne tida. Brundtland mente derfor at norsk næringsliv skulle klare seg gjennom de vanskelige økonomiske tidene og hevde seg i verdenstoppen, akkurat som «fotballjentene, håndballjentene, skigutta og Oslo-filharmoniske.» For det er jo «typisk norsk å være god!» Det var altså ei tid med en del pessimisme i Norge, og det var kanskje behov for å skape litt optimisme. For å forstå sitatet, må man derfor også forstå konteksten. Dette sitatet har blitt svært kjent i Norge. De færreste husker konteksten til det. De færreste husker hvorfor Brundtland sa at det er typisk norsk å være god. Men vi husker sitatet, for kanskje er det en del nordmenn som kjenner seg igjen i det? Kanskje det er det vi som nasjon ønsker å si om oss selv. Vi er gode. Og det er typisk norsk! Du har kanskje hørt at nordmenn er stille og ydmyke? At vi ikke gjør så mye ut av oss selv? Dette tror jeg stemmer dårlig. Nordmenn er generelt veldig stolte av landet sitt. Men vi er også veldig selvgode. Jeg husker at det var helt vanlig at lærerne på barneskolen fortalte oss hvor heldige vi var som bodde i «verdens beste land». Tenk på alle de stakkars barna som ikke bodde i «verdens beste land». Vi var heldige vi! Verdens rikeste land, verdens vakreste land, verdens beste land! Vi tjener mer penger enn andre land, vi jobber mindre enn andre land, vi har mer ferie enn andre land, vi har høyere BNP per innbygger enn nesten alle andre land i verden, vi har et av verdens mest inklusive velferdssystem. Hvem er øverst på indeksen for menneskelig utvikling HDI? Joda, det er Norge det! Eller hva med demokrati-indeksen? Norge på førsteplass!
Life in Norway Show Episode 57: Spanish architect Juan Herreros talks about the architectural choices of the controversial new Munch Museum in Oslo. I recently attended the press preview day of the new Munch museum. The striking building is the latest addition to Oslo's ambitious Fjord City project, which is slowly transforming the waterfront of Oslo over several decades. Many people have criticised the architecture of the new museum, so I took the opportunity to speak to the lead architect, Juan Herreros, of the Spanish architecture practice Estudio Herreros.

Photo: THE AIRSHIP ITALIA: A MYSTERY AT THE END OF THE GOLDEN AGE OF POLAR EXPLORATION Mark Piesing, #UNBOUND,Arctic exploration, the complete, forty-minute interview; August 28, 2021 CBS Eye on the World with John Batchelor CBS Audio Network @Batchelorshow N-4 Down: The Hunt for the Arctic Airship Italia, by Mark Piesing. PorterSqBooks. Hardcover – August 31, 2021 "GRIPPING. . . . One of the greatest polar rescue efforts ever mounted." —Wall Street Journal The riveting, true story of the largest polar rescue mission in history: the desperate race to find the survivors of the glamourous Arctic airship Italia, which crashed near the North Pole in 1928. Triumphantly returning from the North Pole on May 24, 1928, the world-famous exploring airship Italia—code-named N-4—was struck by a terrible storm and crashed somewhere over the Arctic ice, triggering the largest polar rescue mission in history. Helping lead the search was the famed Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen, the poles' greatest explorer, who himself soon went missing in the frozen wastes. Amundsen's body has never been found, the last victim of one of the Arctic's most enduring mysteries . . . During the Roaring Twenties, zeppelin travel embodied the exuberant spirit of the age. Germany's luxurious Graf Zeppelin would run passenger service from Germany to Brazil; Britain's Imperial Airship was launched to connect an empire; in America, the iconic spire of the rising Empire State Building was designed as a docking tower for airships. But the novel mode of transport offered something else, too: a new frontier of exploration. Whereas previous Arctic and Antarctic explorers had subjected themselves to horrific—often deadly—conditions in their attempts to reach uncharted lands, airships held out the possibility of speedily soaring over the hazards. In 1926, Roald Amundsen—the first man to reach the South Pole—partnered with the Italian airship designer General Umberto Nobile to pioneer flight over the North Pole. As Mark Piesing uncovers in this masterful account, while that mission was thought of as a great success, it was in fact riddled with near disasters and political pitfalls. In May 1928, his relationship with Amundsen corroded beyond the point of collaboration. Nobile, his dog, and a crew of fourteen Italians, one Swede, and one Czech, set off on their own in the airship Italia to discover new lands in the Arctic Circle and to become the first airship to land men on the pole. But near the North Pole they hit a terrible storm and crashed onto the ice. Six crew members were never seen again; the injured (including Nobile) took refuge on ice floes, unprepared for the wretched conditions and with little hope for survival. Coincidentally, in Oslo a gathering of famous Arctic explorers had assembled for a celebration of the first successful flight from Alaska to Norway. Hearing of the accident, Amundsen set off on his own desperate attempt to find Nobile and his men. As the weeks passed and the largest international polar rescue expedition mobilized, the survivors engaged in a last-ditch struggle against weather, polar bears, and despair. When they were spotted at last, the search plane landed—but the pilot announced that there was room for only one passenger. . . . Braiding together the gripping accounts of the survivors and their heroic rescuers, N-4 Down tells the unforgettable true story of what happened when the glamour and restless daring of the zeppelin age collided with the harsh reality of Earth's extremes. https://www.amazon.com/N-4-Down-Arctic-Airship-Italia/dp/0062851527
Anders Breivik grew up in Oslo, Norway and as a child he was extremely mistreated by his mother, which later influenced him to become obsessed with graffiti, hip-hop, and politics. Eventually he came to the conclusion that the only way he would be able to "save the Norwegian people" would be through an attack on the government. This led to Anders carrying out a carefully planned bombing on a government building as well as one of the deadliest shooting sprees in Norway's history.
At the start of 2021, a widespread belief held that India had escaped the Covid-19 pandemic relatively unscathed - this was evidenced, the story went, in the country's comparatively low death rates. Narendra Modi boasted to the World Economic Forum in January 2021, "that the country has saved humanity from a big disaster by containing corona effectively.” In this episode, Kenneth Bo Nielsen (Norwegian Network for Asian Studies) is joined by Alf Gunvald Nilsen to discuss the devastating second wave of the pandemic in India. Nilsen argues how the second wave was the outcome of various forms of mismanagement and manipulation integrally linked to the construction of a narrative of victory in a purported war against the coronavirus, and reflects on whether the deadly reality of India's second wave is likely to erode Modi's public image. Alf Gunvald Nilsen is professor of sociology at the University of Pretoria. His research focuses on the political economy of development and democracy in the global South.

Synopsis Let's face it. Brevity and wit are not always qualities one associates with new music. But today we offer a sample: this comic overture is less than 5 minutes long, and opens, as you just heard, with a Fellini-esque duet for piccolo and contrabassoon. The overture is entitled “Quantum Quirks of a Quick Quaint Quark,” and is a rather burlesque celebration of modern theoretical physics. Its alliterative title evokes those subatomic particles known as “quarks” that, we're told, make up our universe. And, since this music changes time signature so often, perhaps Heisenberg's “uncertainty principle” is thrown in for good measure. The music is by Marga Richter, who was born on this date in 1926 in Reedsburg, Wisconsin. Richter received her early music training in Minneapolis, and then moved to New York's Juilliard School. By the time of her death in 2020, she had composed over 75 works including an opera and two ballets, as well as two piano concertos and a variety of solo, chamber and symphonic works. "Composing,” said Richter,” is my response to a constant desire to transform my perceptions and emotions into music … Music is the way I speak to the silence of the universe."

Från 2009, nu i högre ljudkvalitet. Det är en stjärnklar natt och ombord på Scandinavian Star finns 482 personer. 159 kommer aldrig hem igen. Men vem eller vad låg egentligen bakom brandens snabba förlopp? 7 april 1990. De hade tänkt att fira påsk i en stuga vid havet och bokade biljetter på den nya färjan Scandinavian Star som seglade mellan Oslo och Fredrikshamn. Vad de då inte visste var att färjan hade ca 150 överbokningar, att besättningen var utarbetade och underbetalda. De hade dessutom inte gjort några gemensamma brand- eller livbåtsövningar.
