On a chilly October morning outside the main hospital in the capital Riga, an elderly woman, wrapped in a shawl, sold wool socks to people heading inside.“Have a look,” she said. “Dig around in the pile for the warmer ones.”Extra wool clothing for the cold — indoors. That makes sense for Latvia right now, because the government has capped heat in health facilities at about 65 degrees Fahrenheit.Latvia is among several European countries scrambling to find ways to stay warm this winter without having to depend on Russian energy. Time is running especially short in the northern Baltic states, where winter sets in early. So, residents there are bracing for the cold months ahead. An elderly entrepreneur hawks socks near the entrance to Latvia's largest hospital. The socks could come in handy; to save on heating costs this winter, the hospital must keep temperatures below 65 degrees Fahrenheit. Credit: Gerry Hadden/The World School teacher Anastasija Buškevachkevah didn't stop to purchase the wool socks on her way in to the hospital— but winter was on her mind.“I was in hospital in [the] summer,” she said. “It was OK. But now in [the] winter, no one knows. Really we are afraid.”Buškevachkevah has lymphoma. The hospital is scary enough, she said, without having to worry about staying warm. Winters in Latvia are long and harsh. Temperatures can stay below zero for weeks. The government's austerity plan, in an attempt to maximize on savings, also applies to other public spaces — including schools and universities. This winter, University of Latvia's natural sciences campus is closing down one of its two big buildings, keeping it just warm enough so the pipes won't freeze over, professor Juris Paiders said.“We now accept the lower standard for heating. You should use warm underwear, for example, like me,” he added, while opening a button on his dress shirt and tugging on his longjohns underneath.But there are also bigger problems than having to stay warm, according to Samanta Zvagule, an undergraduate environmental science student. Closing half the campus means that half the laboratories are now off limits.“I'm really sad and disappointed,” she said.  “We have a lot of laboratory work, like twice a week. We cannot do that.”But Zvagule said she's taking the situation in stride, especially when she thinks of all the suffering among Ukrainians as they defend themselves against Russia.Russia is Latvia's giant neighbor to the east, and it supplies the nation with most of its electricity and natural gas. But like the rest of Europe, Latvia's is trying to change that. One of the ways is by importing liquified natural gas through other Baltic states, and ramping up renewables. But the transition will take time. For Latvians, who number about 2 million people, this winter is likely to be tough.That's especially true for people who live in places like Riga's Khrushchyovkas — Soviet-era housing blocks that are now drab, dilapidated and poorly insulated.On a recent evening, resident Evita Rozenfelde said that she's worried about her next few utility bills, and keeping her children comfortable. One of many Khrushchyovkas in Riga, Latvia. The Soviet-era apartment blocks were built cheap and meant to last just 50 years. They're badly insulated to boot, and more expensive to keep warm — which is bad for residents who are seeing their energy bills soar. Credit: Gerry Hadden/The World “I haven't turned on the heat yet,” she said. “But when I do, the government won't let me turn up the thermostat above 65 degrees.”At another Soviet-era building, office worker Marika Šūtele said she and her husband are steeling themselves for the worst.“As for our two teenage boys,” she joked, “they both play hockey. They're used to ice. So, for them, the apartment won't be so cold.”Šūtele does worry, however, that the factory where her husband works might close down due to the high heating costs. The big question, she said, is what the government will do to help.So far, authorities have announced some limited subsidies. It also said that it has enough natural gas reserves to get everyone through this winter — if people are careful with their usage. Stacks of traditional firewood and pressed sawdust bricks. They used to be a cheap way to heat your home in Latvia, but with inflation and soaring demand, wood heat has already tripled in cost so far this year. Credit: Gerry Hadden/The World With fuel prices already so high, many people are falling back and relying on firewood. Latvia is mostly made up of forest areas, and more than half of its homes are heated with wood, or by-products, such as compressed blocks made from sawdust. But another problem is that wood prices are also skyrocketing.“One bag is six euros [about $6]. I'm not sure how anyone could afford it,” said interpreter Imants Liepiņš, pointing out all kinds of wood products for heating at a store.Keeping his house warm until May with sawdust blocks would run him about 3,600 euro, or roughly $3,500, more than three times what he would normally pay during the season.Wood pellets, another popular fuel, have also shot up in price. At a Riga hardware store, a bag of pellets sells for $9.“Well, if you need heat, you have to buy it,” office worker Artis Strautiņš said. “There's no choice.”No choice but to pay more for less heating, as the country braces for a cold winter. Related: The invasion in Ukraine could mean less reliance on energy from Russia, analyst says

We have been surprised at our lack of knowledge of this area plus the many tourist attractions that make a visit worthwhile. Riga has turn out to be very walkable, scenic with art nouveaux neighborhoods. I of course had no idea what Art Nouveaux was, but after doing some touring, we learned that it is a very ornate style of building. Riga's buildings have been restored to their original beauty making them shine. We open this episode with a music selection recorded on the great pipe organ of the Riga Cathedral (dome). It is one of the largest pipe organs in the world with almost 7000 pipes. Our tour will take us to 5 countries over the next couple of months. Next months podcast will be made from the road again.

Samedi 1er octobre, les Lettons éliront un nouveau Parlement et ses 100 députés. Du rapport de force entre les partis élus au Parlement naîtra la prochaine coalition gouvernementale. De notre correspondante à Riga, Le carrefour de la rue de la Liberté est stratégique. Arrêts de bus, ministères, magasins, université. Le passage est incessant. C'est là que quelques-uns des 19 partis en lice ont installé leurs tentes. Airija s'arrête un long moment. Le nouveau Parlement va devoir s'attaquer à son principal problème : l'inflation, l'une des plus hautes en Europe. Avec sa retraite de moins de 400 euros, elle ne sait plus comment faire. « Les prix dépassent l'entendement. Deux euros pour quatre tranches de pain. Désormais, le kilo de fromage blanc est passé à 4 euros. Est-ce que tout ça est normal ? », demande Airija. D'une main, Maja tient celle de son garçon de 6 ans, de l'autre, elle pousse un landau. « J'ai des enfants, leur bien-être me tient à cœur. Ma mère est enseignante et leur travail n'est pas reconnu à leur juste valeur », souligne-t-elle. Après la pandémie et les nombreuses restrictions, les Lettons ont envie qu'on leur parle d'eux. Mais comme le remarque Imants Liegis, ancien ambassadeur et proche du parti progressiste, un autre sujet domine ici : « La question la plus importante en ce moment, c'est la guerre que fait la Russie contre l'Ukraine, donc pour la Lettonie, la défense et la sécurité sont la question numéro un. La menace de la part de la Russie, ça a augmenté depuis le 25 février. » La sécurité au sens large du terme Si le mot sécurité est sur la bouche de tous les candidats, le mot est à comprendre très largement, explique Daniel Pavluts, l'actuel ministre de la Santé et candidat. Il y a tout d'abord la sécurité militaire et intérieure, il ne s'agit pas uniquement de renforcer l'armée, mais aussi la police, les renseignement, la deuxième, la sécurité sociale, comment allons-nous faire pour passer cet hiver et ensuite la sécurité humaine, pour être sûr que personne n'est laissé de côté. Le pays n'est sûr que quand les gens qui y vivent se sentent en sécurité. La question du service militaire obligatoire est déjà en discussion au Parlement. Les députés viennent de voter un paquet d'aides sociales à hauteur de 3% du produit intérieur brut. Les quatre partis de la coalition libérale de droite qui ont tenu ensemble pendant 4 ans, un record en Lettonie, sont bien partis pour se retrouver à nouveau ensemble dans l'hémicycle.

In episode 6 of The Caregiving Soul, Dannelle speaks with Shirley Riga about some helpful strategies and tools she learned to manage fear and anxiety while dealing with uncertainty and loss.One of the tools covered was Square Breathing - a self-regulating tool that Shirley highly recommends. In this bonus mini-episode, we dive into the what, the why, and the how of Square Breathing so that you can apply it to your life as it makes sense.What is Square Breathing?Square breathing, also called Box Breathing, is a breath-based, self-calming tool taught to United States Navy SEALS to manage overwhelming situations. It is a tried and true method that can be so helpful in a variety of scenarios. The Square Breathing technique originates from the yogic practice of pranayama or focusing on the breath. The reason for its common name, Box Breathing is because a square has four sides, which are represented by the breath – four counts to breathe in, four counts of holding your breath, four counts to exhale, and four counts of holding your breath after the exhale.Why is Square Breathing impactful?Caregiving can be a difficult task, with many stressful moments. Breathwork, such as Square Breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the system responsible for rest, calming down the sympathetic nervous system's “fight or flight response”. When we are anxious, our breaths our short and shallow. Taking a moment to focus on deep, slow breathing through techniques such as Square Breathing calms the mind and allows us to feel more grounded in the present moment.Overall, Square Breathing can result in the following:Lower stress levelsBoosted moodDecreased blood pressure and heart rateImproved sleepHow do you practice Square Breathing?Breathe in through your nose for four countsHold for four countsExhale for four countsAnd hold for four countsContinue breathing like this until you feel a deeper sense of calm and your heart rate goes down.This technique can feel a bit awkward at first, especially if you are not familiar with breathwork. But if you're determined to find more healthful ways through the madness, you might find that you don't really care if it's awkward. Because the fact is, everything's awkward right now anyway! So keep practicing!We hope you found this technique valuable to add to your caregiving toolbox.Tips for Square Breathing in PracticePractice with good postureTry the lengthen the count over timeSet a clear intention Combine Square Breathing with other pranayama practicesDevelop a habit of stepping back throughout your day to re-center and align your energyAbout Shirley RigaShirley Riga is the author of two books focused on surviving and thriving as a caregiver while living with her daughter's chronic illness.

Fun times in Riga and mobile competition for peer-to-peer bitcoin exchanges. Bitcoin Monthly with BQA and Antomous   Bitcoin monthly 0020   In today's episode I spoke to BQA and Antomous about how much fun they had at the Baltic Honeybadger 2022 conference in Riga. BQA gave a talk during the event for bitcoin beginners and Antomous had a booth representing SeedSigner and Vulcan21. It seems it was a pure bitcoiner event with a high signal-to-noise ratio. One of the larger announcements of the conference was the mobile only peer-to-peer bitcoin exchange “peach”. BQA had the chance to test the app and goes into detail on the setup and workflow. Although we love Bisq and Robosats, this is exactly what we have been waiting for. The app is currently still in beta, but we shouldn't have to wait long for the official release. Speaking of Bisq, they released a minor update with a lot of small improvements. We also talked about two major updates from the two big players in lightning: CLN and LND. MyNode is also working hard to close the gap to the marketplace-based platforms in the node implementation competition and Trezor has finally integrated coin control. To wrap up Antomous let us know that the SeedSigner is finally available again at Vulcan21 and that they are putting out a daily Twitter guide series on handling a SeedSigner.

Dannelle speaks with Shirley Riga about surviving a traumatic journey caring for a child with chronic illness. You'll learn about some of the helpful strategies and tools she learned to manage fear and anxiety while dealing with uncertainty and loss. “I've learned a lot. That's why I call my daughter my teacher. I didn't know I was in a classroom. I had no idea, but what I have learned about myself continues to grow.” - Shirley Riga Timestamps02:37 Shirley's 3 core values and how they relate to her life and caregiving experience 03:25 How Shirley's core values have changed over time 06:01 Shirley's experience when she first learned of her daughter's diagnosis 10:34 Shirley's coping tools for grief 12:57 Square breathing and other techniques Shirley learned in therapy 15:51 Scripts Shirley used for discussing how she and her daughter were doing with acquaintances 19:31 More tools that helped Shirley 23:23 Reparenting ourselves to better support ourselves 25:48 What Shirley is passionate about outside of caregiving Actionable Tips1) We all deserve love. Even if we don't feel that we're receiving it from an external force, we can give it to ourselves. Consider writing yourself a letter to create a reminder about how much you love yourself, and then read it out loud. 2) When life and death is at stake, it's no wonder we worry about what's going to happen. When we stay grounded in the present, we're more open to see what's possible in the moment. Try touching your nose and saying, “I am right here” or have sticky notes around your space that say, “I am in the present”. 3) Plan and enforce boundaries to create emotional safety and protect our hearts and mental wellbeing. We're our own best advocates to determine what that looks like. 4) When we're caught up in a stressful moment, consider some of the coping strategies Shirley mentions including square breathing, passing a coin from hand to hand, or self-massage.

In ashtanga vinyasa yoga system her main teacher is Lino Miele and she has attended his retreats in India and also in Europe. In 2012, Līva decided it was time to do a yoga teacher training in Riga, Latvia as she still continue her work as a full-time lawyer.

Stories From The Eastern West

In the very last episode of Stories of The Eastern West as you knew it, we're taking you to Estonia, 1989. A group of people there made 2 million others hold hands and create a human chain of unprecedented size and significance. The Baltic countries had a truly turbulent 20th century. They went from regaining their independence to losing it to the USSR and becoming subject to a ruthless policy of Russification. Unsurprisingly, they needed something big to jump on the bandwagon of the 1989 peaceful revolutions that liberated several countries from the USSR's influence.  What they came up with was a human chain linking Tallinn with Riga and Vilnius. This huge event is something hard to wrap one's head around nowadays when we think about the scanty means of communication the organisers had.  Our producer Wojciech went to Estonia and got a chance to talk to several people who co-organised or participated in the event. How was it at all possible? Why wasn't it thwarted by the communist regime? How do people remember such a defining moment in their lives over 30 years later? Further listening KAIE / our episode from our mini-series The Final Curtain about ‘The Singing Revolution' that Adam mentions in the show Further reading The Longest Unbroken Human Chain In History / an article on estonianworld.com All the human chains in one place / an article on wikipedia.org Further watching The Inimitable Baltic Way / a Lithuanian documentary Thanks Ivi Gubinska, Reet Villig, Eve Sildnik, Andres Tarand and Lukas Hioo for taking the time to discuss this incredible event with us.

In December 2020, an Israeli football club made worldwide headlines. The news that a UAE royal had bought 50 per cent of Beitar's shares shook Israel and the football world. Beitar, proclaimed by some of its own fans as 'the most racist club in the country', is a club like no other in Israel. While Israeli football as a whole is a space where Israelis of all ethnicities and foreigners can co-exist, Beitar won't even sign a Muslim player for fear of its own far-right supporters' group, La Familia.  On the Border: The Rise and Decline of the Most Political Club in the World (Pitch Publishing, 2022) is the fascinating tale of a club that began as a sports movement of a liberal national Zionism party and became an overt symbol of right-wing views, Mizrahi identity and eventually hardcore racism and nationalism. The book explores the radicalisation of Beitar and the fight for the soul of the club between the racists and open-minded fans. It is also a story of Jerusalem, the most volatile place on Earth, and how the holy city and the influence of religion have shaped Beitar. Founded in 1936, the club took its name from a Zionist organization set up in 1923 by students in the capital of Latvia, Riga, following a visit by Ze'ev Jabotinsky, the Zionist Revisionist and founder of the para­military group Irgun. Beitar's story mirrors that of its city. For thirty years, under the British Mandate, impoverished young Mizrahim (Jews from Arab countries) had kicked a ball around Jerusalem's Musrara neighbourhood with Arab friends. The war of 1948 changed that. Subsequent events sharpened the divide, leading to the unrepentant racism of La Familia, Beitar “ultras” who began by making monkey noises at a player from Cameroon and graduated to chants threatening death to Arabs. Employing violence and intimi­dation, they ensured no Muslim could play for Beitar, thereby betraying a key element of Jabotinsky's scheme – equality for Arabs.

August 24 is always a significant date for Ukraine, as it marks official independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. This year, however, it also marked six months since Russia invaded the country. Russian officials initially predicted a short campaign but the fighting shows no sign of ending soon. The human cost has been immense – thousands of lives have been lost on both sides. Three women share what it is like to have family members involved directly in the war. We also hear messages from a Ukrainian military sniper, a 20-year-old volunteer military interpreter and a former US marine who is now one of thousands of volunteer fighters in the country. Meanwhile, a Russian woman in Riga describes the impact of the war on her family and a Russian man living in Moscow is calling for truce.
