Capital of Georgia
Antimicrobial resistance killed over a million people in 2019. That figure is expected to rise to ten million by 2050. Antibiotics remain vital to modern medicine, but this hidden pandemic of drug-resistant superbugs is driving scientists to explore possible alternatives. One type of therapy in particular is attracting serious scientific interest: bacteriophages. Phages are viruses that can destroy bacteria. In the 1920s, phage therapies were used widely against infections, but much of the world abandoned the idea following the discovery of penicillin. Some parts of the former Soviet Union, though, have continued to use phage therapies. What can governments and international companies learn from this medicine?Gilead Amit, The Economist's science correspondent, travels to the Eliava Institute in Tbilisi, Georgia to find out how phage therapies have been used there over the last century. He speaks to the director, Mzia Kutateladze, head of phage production, Vakho Pavlenishvili, and from the therapy centre: Davit Sturia, Lia Nadareishvili and Lana Abesadze. Barry Rud, a Canadian patient attending the clinic, discusses his experience. Steffanie Strathdee, who leads phage research at the University of California, San Diego, explains the renewed international interest in bacteriophages.

Things I Didn't Learn In School
Dachi is a civil rights activist in Georgian (Tbilisi not the US state) and a key member of the organization Shame. I met him on my trip there and recorded our conversation in Shame's Tbilisi office.
Russian forces occupy some 20 percent of Georgia's territory, a consequence of two wars. Officially, Georgia wants to join NATO and the EU; these ambitions are even written into its constitution. But behind the scenes, the country's de facto ruler – oligarch Bidzina Ivanizhvili – is suspected of sabotaging the reforms demanded by Brussels. This has put the ruling party at odds with the population, since the vast majority of Georgians are in favour of joining the EU. FRANCE 24's Elena Volochine reports from Tbilisi.
This week, Sally Howard explores Tbilisi's Old Town, the heart of the ancient Georgian capital. She tries a selection of sharing dishes with heavy Persian, Mongol and Russian influences and, of course, a healthy dollop of sour cream.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Natalya ran a children's care home in southeastern Ukraine when Russian forces invaded in February 2022. Soldiers turned up at her door saying they were taking the children to Russia, and she insisted on going with them. Thousands of Ukrainian children have been illegally taken to Russia over the course of the war but Natalya and her children are some of the few who have escaped. Russia claims it is giving them sanctuary from the horrors of war.On the Sky New Daily, host Sally Lockwood is joined by aid volunteer Kathy Stickel, who helped rescue the children from Russia, and our international affairs editor, Dominic Waghorn, who's been out to Tbilisi, Georgia, to meet them.

In early March, Georgians took to the street in Tbilisi to protest a bill that would have classified organisations and media groups receiving more than 20 per cent of their funding from abroad as foreign agents. Although the ruling Georgian Dream party eventually dropped the bill, many Georgians remain frustrated at the government for what they see as a deliberate effort to turn the country's back to the EU in favour of Russia. This particularly rankles those who see echoes of the five-day war Russia fought against Georgia in 2008 in Russia's continuing full-scale war in Ukraine.This week on War & Peace, Olga Oliker and Elissa Jobson are joined by Tbilisi-based journalist Joshua Kucera and Crisis Group's Senior Analyst for the South Caucasus Olesya Vartanyan to talk about what's behind the protests and what might lie ahead for the political future of the country. They delve into the root causes for the protests, how they unfolded and Georgian Dream's politics and policies. They also examine how the war in Ukraine has and has not affected Georgia's relations with its breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Finally, they discuss Georgia's prospects for EU candidacy and why Brussels might be well advised not to turn its back on the country.For more in-depth analysis of the topics discussed in this episode, check out our Georgia country page.

#plugintodevin - Your Mark on the World with Devin Thorpe
When you purchase an item after clicking a link from this post, we may earn a commission.Devin: What do you see as your superpower?Susan: I believe my superpower is storytelling and sharing stories. And the flip side of that, in order to have that superpower, I've had to learn the ability to listen and to listen really well.Susan Sloan is the author of A Seat at the Table: Women, Diplomacy, and Lessons for the World, which is about the positive impact of having women work in diplomacy and leadership. She was a member of the delegation hosted by the Israeli Foreign Ministry, which included me. The whirlwind trip didn't give the two of us much time to discuss her book, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit with her to learn more about it. Now, having read it, I enthusiastically endorse it.AI Summary* Susan Sloan, author of A Seat at the Table, highlights the positive impact of having women work in diplomacy and leadership roles for gender and equity issues.* Diversity of thought through gender, race, religion, culture, origin, and socioeconomic status around the decision-making table makes companies more profitable and more likely to create successful peace treaties.* Retaining women in senior-level roles and setting targets, such as a 40-40-20 gender split ratio, creates significant culture change within organizations.* Both genders are needed at the table to create the magic of empowerment and growth in any organization.* Sloan believes that her superpower is storytelling and advises that it can be developed by being a good listener, being concise and detailed, reading the audience, and making the listener feel like they are part of the story.* Sloan's recent book, A Seat at the Table, contains never-before-told stories from prominent women diplomats and leaders. It is aimed at young people coming into their careers or women in diplomacy, but it can benefit all leaders. * Women in diplomacy have paved the way for future women and broken barriers and stereotypes in diplomacy.* Women bring unique perspectives and skills to leadership roles that bring positive outcomes such as greater empathy and emotional intelligence.* Sloan highlights that investing in women's professional development is essential to retain them in leadership.* The pandemic has spotlighted the need for emotional intelligence and empathy in diplomacy and leadership to support and reassure citizens.New Degree Press published the book near the pandemic's peak emotional impact in November 2020. “I interviewed a little more than 30 women leaders, ambassadors, foreign ministers, and government officials from around the world, and their take on leadership,” Susan says.The book is groundbreaking. “Every single leader I interviewed and sat down with told me two things,” Susan says. “One, ‘I've never told anyone this before, Susan.' And two, ‘I can't believe you just asked me that.' So, I knew I was on to something very, very special.”“The whole idea of why having different people at the table matters is to have diversity of thought,” she says. “The way we think is different, so that creates change in epic proportions.”The results are clear, Susan says. “One, it makes companies more profitable. Two, it makes peace treaties more likely to last and not fail.”The problem isn't solved when you get women to the table. You've got to keep them there. “There are many studies out there that show that women are leaving senior-level roles because there's a lack of flexibility in the workplace, and they're not getting the support that they need,” she says.She also makes clear that diversity doesn't end with gender. “When we're looking at diversity around the decision-making table, we're looking at gender; we're looking at race, religion,” Susan says. “Sometimes those things aren't coming up in data points. We're looking at socioeconomic status. We're looking at how people identify by sexual orientation, all those different factors.”She says, “The first thing when you look around the table is to ask, ‘Who's missing?'” Susan and I thoroughly enjoyed the group assembled by the Foreign Ministry for our visit to Israel because they seemed to have done such an effective job of asking, “who's missing?” until they got it right.With respect to the narrower topic of gender diversity, Susan suggests a target level of representation:You have to have the breakdown of 40 percent men, 40 percent women, and 20 percent either. Now, that 20 percent allows for flexibility because in your workforce, middle management and senior level leadership, you may not have qualified people, whether men or women, coming through your door at a certain time. So that 20 percent allows for the flexibility of of going and swaying different ways. So it's that 40, 40, 20 split—that ratio creates significant culture change.In the book and her career, Susan leverages her superpower: storytelling.How to Develop Storytelling As a SuperpowerSusan shares how she's found storytelling to be important in her work:If you look at many leaders throughout history that have employed the power of listening, you find that they, one, have been very successful. But two, they're taking information, and then they're using it and sharing it with others. So, the power of storytelling is something that I've really grabbed onto. I've realized that because different people trust me and trust me with their stories, I have the responsibility to share them with other people.Susan shared a story that demonstrates her storytelling superpower:Last year I was asked by the president of Georgia—not University of Georgia, although I did go to University of Georgia—go Dawgs—but the president of Georgia in Tbilisi in Europe. I was asked to come over there for a conference about women and how they're dealing with conflict right now. Georgia is facing different issues with some neighbors similar to what maybe Ukraine might be dealing with right now as well. Georgia got leaders together from all over the world, all women, to talk about not only conflict but what we can do to make a difference and create relationships and have resources. So, I was sitting there at the conference. I held a session, I moderated a session from women war correspondents, and it was a very powerful session. Later, when we were meeting with different women, I would share stories not only from my book but from diplomatic experiences I've been in.The impact of being vulnerable and sharing personal stories and also stories from other women created the atmosphere for other people to share their vulnerabilities. That gave lessons of not only hope but solutions of what women in Georgia can do. Different leaders were there, and even leaders from Ukraine were there. That sharing of storytelling and going back to storytelling, of course, really created an atmosphere in that people were open and candid, and you could feel it in the entire conference. And it was such a pleasure not only to be there but an honor. In addition to that, months later, the President's team reached out to me to write a letter about this conference that they could share. In essence, give me a story that I can share with others so the conference can happen again. So, they entrusted me asking me to write a story about it. That's just what I did. I believe that the power of being vulnerable, listening and sharing and creating that atmosphere was really impactful.Susan offered some excellent advice for developing storytelling as a superpower:* First, practice the art of listening.* You have to have a beginning, middle and end.* Be concise yet detailed.* If you're not a funny person, don't try to be funny.* If you want to create a sense of vulnerability, then feel okay to be vulnerable, and it's also okay to mess up.* Read the room. Read the audience; look around the room. How are people reacting to [the story]?Susan concludes with some thoughtful advice:The best storytellers that I love to listen to, they usually don't speak with a lot of notes. They look at the audience, they have a little bit of movement. They're personable; they're relaxed; they're conversational. You really do feel like you're sitting at their kitchen table listening to a story. That's the real, I think, art of storytelling. If you can feel like you're at a kitchen table with somebody over a cup of coffee or a cup of water or a cup of tea, whatever it is, and you're sharing a story, you never know how it's going to impact somebody.By following Susan's advice and example, you can strengthen your ability to listen and tell powerful stories, enabling you to do more good in the world.Guest-Provided ProfileSusan Sloan (she/her)About: Susan Sloan's Book, A Seat at the Table: Women, Diplomacy, and Lessons for the World, shares the impact of gender-diversified leadership and why varied voices lead to stronger resolutions and enhanced team dynamics. Research proves that when women are involved in peace processes, an agreement is 35% more likely to last at least 15 years. Additionally, higher levels of gender equality are associated with a lower tendency for conflict. Many countries face challenges of migration, terrorism, climate change, and the spread of fast-paced technology. Those who are sitting around the table will change the course of history and redefine how we solve critical problems.

EU-flaggan mot vattenkanoner i Tbilisi. Georgien slits mellan EU och Ryssland. Och ett år med skenande priser. Hör om hur Europa kan tämja inflationen och hur bankkollapsen i USA påverkar. Sammandrabbningarna mellan polis och demonstranter i Georgiens huvudstad Tbilisi har involverat brandbomber, tårgas och vattenkanoner. På ytan har protesterna handlat om ett lagförslag riktat mot organisationer och medier som får pengar från utlandet, det har kallats för den ryska lagen. Men under ytan handlar de starka bilderna om mycket mer en dröm om Europa, men där Bryssel hittills inte ansett Georgien redo att bli en del av unionen.Så fortsätter inflationen att slå mot EuropaAlla länder är del av samma globala marknad och hela Europa har fått vänja sig vid kraftigt stigande priser det senaste året. Men inflationen och de skyhöga matpriserna slår olika hårt i Ungern till exempel låg inflationen på strax över 26 procent nu i januari, i Spanien på strax under 6 procent.

Il partito di governo ha ritirato il progetto di legge che imponeva alle ong con finanziamenti dall'estero superiori al 20 per cento di registrarsi come «agenti stranieri»: una norma simile a quella approvata in Russia nel 2012 per silenziare il dissenso e che ha scatenato numerose manifestazioni nella capitale Tbilisi. Ma le preoccupazioni per il futuro rimangono: perché nel rapporto con Mosca non sono poche le analogie con quanto accaduto nel Paese ora in guerra, spiega Francesco Battistini.Per altri approfondimenti:Georgia: idranti e gas contro i manifestanti pro Europa e anti RussiaLa Georgia ritira la legge-bavaglio, ma la folla rimane in piazzaGeorgia, la donna della bandiera simbolo delle proteste: “L'Europa è il nostro scudo”

Dobré ráno | Denný podcast denníka SME
Gruzínci vyšli do ulíc. Hromadné protesty začali, keď vláda prišla so zákonom o zahraničných agentoch. Podobný zákon platí už v Rusku a často sa zneužíva na pozastavenie, perzekuovanie a zatváranie mimovládnych organizácií a slobodných médií s kritickým postojom k vláde. Po protestoch parlament v piatok návrh zákona z parlamentu stiahol. Prečo by nás malo zaujímať aj na Slovensku Gruzínsko? A prečo má Gruzínsko proeurópskych obyvateľov, ale proruskú vládu?

Street protests have forced Georgia's parliament to back down on a bill aimed at making groups with overseas funding register as foreign agents. Critics say it's a mimic of the law that's on the books in Russia. We ask about a Georgian government that's on paper pro-European, but whose main backer first made his fortune in Russia. Why did lawmakers give in? What next for Georgia?

Thousands of protesters in Tbilisi, Georgia, are speaking out against a bill that would require organizations receiving more than 20% of funding from international sources to register as "foreign agents." Many fear this legislation would push Georgia further from Western allies, and muck up aspirations to EU membership. And, last week, two Americans were killed in the Mexican city of Matamoros following their kidnapping. They were part of a group of four travelers who crossed the border seeking medical tourism. Also, the cause of the explosions that hit the Nord Stream gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea last September has been widely debated. Now, officials are reacting to media reports that a pro-Ukraine group was behind them. Plus, a new memoir uncovers Ukraine's troubled past.

From Our Own Correspondent Podcast
Kate Adie introduces analysis and reportage from correspondents in Turkey, Israel, Nigeria, Georgia and South Sudan. While reporting from across southern Turkey after the February 6 earthquake, Nick Beake often came across moments of astonishing kindness and generosity - but also found an incalculable burden of grief and a growing sense of anger. How and why did the natural disaster have such devastating human consequences - and can anyone be held responsible for the deaths and damage? There's a war of words going on in Israel over moves by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government to reform the status and powers of the country's Supreme Court. Amid the fervent demonstrations and political horse-trading in and around the Knesset building, Yolande Knell's been hearing the cases for and against the proposed changes to the system. Nigeria is due to elect its next President on the 25th of February, but the scheduled election day comes as the nation grapples with a string of crises. Soaring inflation, burgeoning insecurity and dire fuel shortages have been capped off by currency chaos - as the entire country struggles to find enough cash to pay for its daily needs. Mayeni Jones reports from Lagos. The political career of Mikhail Saakashvili has never been short of passionate rhetoric or dramatic twists, but recently, people in Tbilisi have been worried by a series of images which seemed to show their former President wasting away in a prison clinic. Rayhan Demytrie explains why 'Misha' still provokes strong feelings in Georgia. And: what is really the point of a Papal visit? As Aleem Maqbool followed the route of Pope Francis's recent travels to the D R Congo and South Sudan, he was moved by the joy of the crowds - and considered how Popes can move politicians to act.

Season 5, Episode 2: This season we are talking about multilateralism. What it is, what it's good for, and also what it's not.

Pievēršam uzmanību tam, kas notiek Romas Katoļu baznīcā un arī Vatikānā. Vecgada dienā mūžībā devās iepriekšējais pāvests Benedikts XIV. Viņa nāve pievērš skatu šai pasaulē mazākajai, bet salīdzinoši ietekmīgajai valstij. Otru raidījuma daļu veltām Gruzijai. Eiropas Parlaments ir aicinājis ieviest sankcijas pret Gruzijas premjerministru un viņam pietuvinātiem cilvēkiem, spriedzes pamatā ir bijušā prezidenta Mihaila Saakašvili atrašanās Gruzijas cietumā. Valdošās partijas ģenerālsekretārs paziņojis, ka valsts ir gatava pat atteikties no virzības uz Eiropas Savienību, bet Saakašvili no cietuma neizlaidīs. Aktualitātes analizē Latvijas Universitātes Teoloģijas fakultātes mācībspēku – docents Andris Priede un profesore Laima Geikina, Eiropas Parlamenta deputāte Inese Vaidere un Leonards Inkins. Pāvesta Benedikta otrā aiziešana 2022. gada pēdējā dienā savu mūža gājumu noslēdza Jozefs Aloizs Racingers, daudz plašāk pazīstams kā pāvests Benedikts XVI, Romas katoļu baznīcas galva no 2005. līdz 2013. gadam. Kardinālu konklāva ievēlēts pēc tam, kad mūžībā bija devies viņa priekšgājējs – harizmātiskais Jānis Pāvils II; pāvests Benedikts kļuva par pirmo vācieti šai amatā pēc teju tūkstoš gadus ilga pārtraukuma. Viņa ievēlēšana tika uzlūkota kā zināma Katoļu baznīcas tradicionālistiski orientētās ievirzes uzvara. Savas karjeras sākumā vairāk nekā ceturtdaļgadsimtu pavadījis kā akadēmisks teologs, viņš bija viena no nozīmīgākajām autoritātēm baznīcas doktrīnas jautājumos, pirms savas ievēlēšanas vadot Romas Kūrijas Ticības doktrīnas Svēto kongregāciju, savulaik pastāvējušās Romas inkvizīcijas institucionālo mantinieci. Tiek minēts, ka principialitāte un argumentācijas prasme, skaužot ticības maldus, savulaik sagādājusi šim ārēji atturīgajam vācietim iesauku „Dieva rotveilers”. Populārā līmenī visplašāk pamanītais Benedikta XVI solis bija daļēja t.s. Latīņu jeb Vecā rita mesas atgriešana apritē pēc tam, kad tā bija de facto noliegta kopš t.s. Jaunā rita mesas pieņemšanas 1969. gadā. Tomēr Romas katoļu baznīcas vēsturē šis pontifiks paliks pirmām kārtām ar savu atkāpšanos no amata 2013. gada februārī. Iepriekšējo reizi pāvesta atkāpšanās bija pieredzēta 1415. gadā, taču toreiz iemesls tam bija t.s. Lielā jeb Rietumu shizma – šķelšanās katoļu baznīcas iekšienē, kad vienlaicīgi no konkurējošām frakcijām bija ievēlēti veseli trīs pāvesti, un viņu atkāpšanās bija samierināšanās nosacījums. Par Benedikta XVI patiesu līdzinieku var uzlūkot pāvestu Celestīnu V, kurš, sabijis pāvestos nepilnu pusgadu un nespēdams nest varas smagumu, atkāpās no amata 1294. gadā, tātad vairāk nekā 700 gadus pirms Benedikta XVI. Kā savas atkāpšanās iemeslu Benedikts XVI minēja amata pildīšanai nepietiekamus fiziskos spēkus, tomēr viņa aiziešanu neizbēgami pavadīja spekulācijas par Vatikānā izplatīto korupciju un ar priesteru seksuāliem noziegumiem saistītiem skandāliem kā patieso iemeslu. Lai kā arī nebūtu, šī virsgana rīcība uzskatāma par visai revolucionāru soli, kas nepārprotami atspoguļo laikmetam raksturīgu pārmaiņu iespaidu arī uz tādu senās tradīcijās sakņotu institūciju kā Romas katoļu baznīca. Tagad nu Augstākais pontifiks emeritus, kā viņš tika oficiāli dēvēts pēc atkāpšanās, no mums atvadās pavisam, un viņa aiziešana atkal uzjundījusi viedokļus par pāvesta institūcijas raksturu un lomu mūslaiku pasaulē. Benedikta XVI sekotājs virsgana krēslā, pāvests Francisks, tiek daudzu uzlūkots kā pārlieku radikāls modernizētājs, pat dēvēts par kreisu ekstrēmistu. Ievērojot, ka arī viņam spēka gadi jau pasen aiz muguras, Vatikāna pakalns jau drīz var pieredzēt vēl vienu progresistiskās un tradicionālistiskās strāvas spēkošanās raundu. Glābjot cietumnieku Saakašvili 4. janvārī daudzviet Eiropā un citur pasaulē pie Gruzijas vēstniecībām pulcēsies protestētāji, pieprasot Tbilisi valdībai atvieglot ieslodzītā eksprezidenta Mihaila Saakašvili likteni. Bijušais Gruzijas prezidents atrodas apcietinājumā kopš 2021. gada oktobra, kad atgriezās dzimtenē pēc apmēram septiņus gadus ilgas trimdas, cerot uz viņa partijas Apvienotā Nacionālā kustība uzvaru pašvaldību vēlēšanās un plašu tautas atbalstu, kas neļautu varai īstenot viņam aizmuguriski piespriesto sešu gadu cietumsodu. Šīs cerības nepiepildījās. Cietumā Saakašvili uzsāka badastreiku, kuru pārtrauca pēc tam, kad varas iestādes piekrita viņu ievietot slimnīcā. Tomēr Saakašvili veselības stāvoklis šī gada laikā turpināja strauji pasliktināties, un novembrī parādījās ziņas, ka, iespējams, nopietni apdraudēta viņa dzīvība. Matu un nagu paraugos, kas tika iegūti pirms pāris nedēļām, kad Saakašvili apmeklēja viņa amerikāņu advokāts Massimo D'Andželo, esot konstatēts arsēns un dzīvsudrabs, un pastāv aizdomas, ka cietumā viņš varētu būt mērķtiecīgi saindēts. Eksprezidents strauji zaudē svaru un, kā liecina nesenākie videoieraksti, vairs nespēj normāli paiet. 14. decembrī Eiroparlaments pieņēma rezolūciju, aicinot Gruzijas varasiestādes atbrīvot Mihailu Saakašvili, lai viņš varētu doties ārstēties ārzemēs. Tā vietā, kā ziņots, ieslodzītais 29. decembrī pārvietots no civilās slimnīcas, kur tika turēts līdz tam, uz kara hospitāli. Mihails Saakašvili kļuva par Gruzijas prezidentu 2004. gada janvārī, pēc tam, kad t.s. Rožu revolūcija bija piespiedusi atkāpties no amata viņa priekšgājēju, kādreizējo Padomju Savienības ārlietu ministru Eduardu Ševardnadzi. Viņš bija tobrīd jaunākais valsts prezidents Eiropā, un īstenoja apņēmīgu un daudzējādā ziņā efektīvu politiku korupcijas apkarošanai un labas pārvaldības normu ieviešanai, nepārprotami iezīmējot Gruzijas orientēšanos uz tuvināšanos Eiropas Savienībai un NATO. Gan viņa nākšana pie varas t.s. „krāsainās revolūcijas” rezultātā, gan prorietumnieciskā orientācija padarīja Saakašvili ļoti netīkamu Vladimiram Putinam. Tiek pat minēts, ka Kremļa saimnieks uzskatot Gruzijas eksprezidentu par savu personisku ienaidnieku. 2008. gadā Krievijas Federācija īstenoja militāru agresiju pret Gruziju, smagi iedragājot mazākās kaimiņvalsts aizsardzības spējas un atraujot no tās separātiskos Abhāzijas un Dienvidosetijas reģionus. 2012. gadā Apvienotā Nacionālā kustība zaudēja vēlēšanās partijai „Gruzijas sapnis”, kuru bija nodibinājis miljardieris Bidzina Ivianišvili, un kuru daudzi uzskata par Kremļa īstenotu projektu. Zīmīgi, ka laikā, kad Mihails Saakašvili uzturējās ārzemēs, nedz Interpols, nedz vairāku valstu valdības neņēma vērā Gruzijas institūciju prasības par viņa arestu un izdošanu.

Yet there is a huge degree of difference between the different districts and neighborhoods. Drawing boundaries around the different neighborhoods in Tbilisi is not an easy task. While the 10 administrative districts (raions) are fairly clear, within those 10 there are dozens of ‘micro-districts' that sometimes overlap and intersect, plus informal historic neighborhoods that people refer to by different names. Then there are nicknames on top of that, often based on the nearest avenue or metro station. Tbilisi is very safe and you can still find real estate at affordable prices.

Join America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/) Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with Steve H. Hanke, a top economist and leading monetarist. Dr. Steve Hanke provides an analysis of midterm elections, an update on America's economy, and raises concerns about the prolonged Ukraine - Russia conflict as the West's economic sanctions fail to bring an end to the war on the European continent. Dr. Hanke has been a strong critic of corruption in Ukraine and recent reports that he highlights raise red flags that US weapons are making its way to the black market. On America's Roundtable, principled leaders have called for greater oversight on how US taxpayer aid is being used in Ukraine and within NATO's Eastern European countries mired in corruption. Professor Hanke also discusses the Misery Index, and "why it is essential for policy-makers to have a read of their constituents' well-being, as viewed through the lens of economic statistics." Report: Hanke's 2021 Misery Index: Who's Miserable and Who's Happy? (https://www.nationalreview.com/2022/03/hankes-2021-misery-index-whos-miserable-and-whos-happy/) Hanke's Annual Misery Index (HAMI). What is it — and how should we conceive of man's well-being? The human condition lies on a vast spectrum between “miserable” and “happy.” In the economic sphere, misery tends to flow from high inflation, steep borrowing costs, and unemployment. The surefire way to mitigate that misery is through economic growth. Comparing countries' metrics can tell us a lot about where in the world people are sad or happy. HAMI gives us the answers. My version of the misery index is the sum of the year-end unemployment, inflation, and bank-lending rates, minus the annual percentage change in real GDP per capita. Higher readings on the first three elements are “bad” and make people more miserable. These “bads” are offset by a “good” (real GDP per capita growth), which is subtracted from the sum of the bads to yield a HAMI score. Bio: Dr. Steve H. Hanke Steve H. Hanke is a professor of applied economics and founder and codirector of the Institute for Applied Economics, Global Health, and the Study of Business Enterprise at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Dr. Steve Hanke served as special counselor to the Center for Financial Stability in New York. Hanke is also a contributing editor at Central Banking in London and a contributor at National Review.

Hanke served as a state counselor to both the Republic of Lithuania in 1994–96 and the Republic of Montenegro in 1999–2003. He was also an adviser to the presidents of Bulgaria in 1997–2002, Venezuela in 1995–96, and Indonesia in 1998.

In this engaging and insightful conversation with Claire Kaiser, we discuss her new book Georgian and Soviet: Entitled Nationhood & the Specter of Stalin in the Caucasus. Here's a description of the book: Georgian and Soviet investigates the constitutive capacity of Soviet nationhood and empire. The Soviet republic of Georgia, located in the mountainous Caucasus region, received the same nation-building template as other national republics of the USSR. Yet Stalin's Georgian heritage, intimate knowledge of Caucasian affairs, and personal involvement in local matters as he ascended to prominence left his homeland to confront a distinct set of challenges after his death in 1953. Utilizing Georgian archives and Georgian-language sources, Claire P. Kaiser argues that the postwar and post-Stalin era was decisive in the creation of a "Georgian" Georgia. This was due not only to the peculiar role played by the Stalin cult in the construction of modern Georgian nationhood but also to the subsequent changes that de-Stalinization wrought among Georgia's populace and in the unusual imperial relationship between Moscow and Tbilisi. Kaiser describes how the Soviet empire could be repressive yet also encourage opportunities for advancement—for individual careers as well as for certain nationalities. The creation of national hierarchies of entitlement could be as much about local and republic-level imperial imaginations as those of a Moscow center. Georgian and Soviet reveals that the entitled, republic-level national hierarchies that the Soviet Union created laid a foundation for the claims of nationalizing states that would emerge from the empire's wake in 1991. Today, Georgia still grapples with the legacies of its Soviet century, and the Stalin factor likewise lingers as new generations of Georgians reevaluate the symbiotic relationship between Soso Jughashvili and his native land.
It's incredible to have David Page share his story as a journalist and television show producer and why he wanted to write a book about American food history. Listen to this episode as we chat about his remarkable experiences and how his passion for writing introduced cultures beyond food recipes!Key Takeaways from This EpisodeThe real reason why things fail or succeedWhy everyone should read books about food and cuisineWriting prose vs. writing for televisionHow Food Americana tells intriguing and valuable topicsA creative way of structuring and writing a bookResources Mentioned in This EpisodeAdventures in the Screen Trade by William Goldman | Paperback and KindleAbout David PageTwo-time Emmy winner David Page changed the world of food television by creating, developing, and executive-producing the groundbreaking show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Before that, as a network news producer based in London, Frankfurt, and Budapest, he traveled Europe, Africa, and the Middle East doing two things: covering some of the biggest stories in the world and developing a passion for some of the world's most incredible food.Page walked through Checkpoint Charlie into East Berlin the night the Berlin wall opened, but his favorite memory of the eastern side before reunification remains the weisswurst sold under the S-Bahn elevated train. He was first served couscous by Moammar Khaddafy's kitchen staff while waiting in a tent to interview the dictator in Libya. Blood oranges at a three o'clock breakfast with Yasser Arafat. Wild boar prosciutto in Rome. Bouillabaisse in Marseille. Cheese pies in Tbilisi. Venison in Salzburg. Nonstop caviar in Moscow. He even managed to slip a few food features in between the headline stories, such as a profile of Germany's leading food critic, which turned out not to be the oxymoron one might assume.Once back in the states, Page has pursued his passion both personally and professionally. Show-producing Good Morning America, he was involved in a substantial amount of food coverage, including cooking segments by Emeril Lagasse. Creating Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and hands-on producing its first eleven seasons took him deep into the world of American food—its vast variations, its history, its evolution, and especially the dedicated cooks and chefs keeping it vibrant. His next series, the syndicated Beer Geeks, dove deep into the intersection of great beer and great food. It is those experiences, that education, and the discovery of little-known stories and facts that led Page to dig even deeper and tie the strands together in his book, Food Americana.Love the show?

In an attempt to shore up its rapidly crumbling position in Ukraine, Moscow has partially mobilized the people. In response, many of those people are fleeing. But where can they go? Russia has spent the last 100 years bullying, invading, and killing its immediate neighbors. Places like Georgia are seeing a huge influx of Russian military aged males. How do the Georgians feel about this? It's complicated.With us today to talk about this is James Jackson. Jackson is a freelance journalist in German and Central and Eastern Europe. He was in Tbilisi, the capitol of Georgia when Russians fleeing mobilization started to show up. And he's here with us today to talk about it. It's the subject of his latest in Time: Why a Fresh Russian Exodus to Georgia is So Polarizing.Here's a link to the video Jackson describes in the show.Angry Planet has a substack!
