It's 60 years since a peaceful march in Paris ended in the killing of at least 100 Algerian protesters by the police. An extensive cover-up meant that almost nothing was known about it for several decades, and the true facts are still emerging. BBC Arabic's Ahmed Rouaba has been looking into the story. The Stallion of Yennenga As film-makers gather for the FESPACO African film festival in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, we ask what's the story behind the main prize, called the Stallion of Yennenga?

When a cobra became a murder weapon Last week a man was convicted of using a snake as a murder weapon. The victim was his wife, who was bitten by the hooded cobra, and died. The BBC's Soutik Biswas in Delhi was one of the journalists following the story. Venezuelan migrants in Chile Last month, demonstrators in a town in northern Chile marched to settler camps housing Venezuelan migrants and set their belongings on fire. It's part of the rising tension in Chile between locals and migrants, as BBC Mundo contributor Paula Molina reports. 'Got to go' Why is a cheerful rap song about a party making people cry in Hong Kong? The lyrics of Got to go are about leaving a party, but is there another interpretation?

Anamaria Sayre | September 27, 2021 Silvana Estrada's angelic first note strikes, and for a moment her family's instrument workshop in Veracruz, Mexico, feels like a window to the heavens themselves. Adorned in a white dress and a radiant smile, the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist invites us to participate in a rich and varied expression of familial love and musical brilliance. She wastes no time entrancing her audience, using a stripped-down performance of "Un Día Cualquiera" — accompanied by nothing but soft claps and subtle harmonies — to showcase her impeccable vocal precision and range. After a sweet "Bienvenidos," Estrada picks up the Venezuelan cuatro — her most beloved magic-making tool — and jumps into a sublimely arranged, effortlessly enchanting rendition of "Tristeza." Then, halfway through "Te Guardo," something extraordinary happens: the sound of stringed instruments comes out of nowhere, and as Estrada steps away from her microphone, the camera follows, exposing a string quartet set up just off screen. After that moving reveal, Estrada takes a seat and begins to perform "Marchita," where strings, cuatro, and voice marry in indiscernible harmony. Shifting scenes once again, Estrada moves outside and we meet her papa, armed with a double bass. Father and daughter conjure a musical manifestation of pure love with a stunning performance of "Tonada De Ordeño [El Ordeñador]." Though the traditional Venezuelan tune is a longtime favorite, this performance is different. A butterfly takes a seat on Silvana's mic and the camera zooms out to reveal the other instrumentalists in the workshop looking on in knowing admiration. Silvana's voice reverberates across the Veracruz hillside and the world exhales, basking in a fleeting moment of divinity on earth.

Original Show Notes: Listen as Hillary explains how Chavez and the concepts of socialism took control of Venezuela through the use of divisiveness, cause by building resentment between the differing wage classes. Later, Hillary discusses the deteriorating of the Venezuelan economy caused by the socialist policies of Chavez, the death of Chavez, and the new rule under Maduro. Finally, we conclude by discussing what those in favor of socialism today should learn from the failed socialist policies in Venezuela so that we never fall in the same way as Venezuela has. Again, I don't ask this often, but if you could please share today's episode with your family and friends, especially those in need of hearing the truth as to what socialism has done to Venezuela, that would be absolutely incredible.

These kinds of attacks seem destined to continue, piling up civilian casualties in the process due to the inability of high altitude attacks to distinguish between civilian and military targets.Mark Sleboda, Moscow-based international relations security analyst, joins us to discuss the FBI raid on Russian aluminum tycoon Oleg Deripaska. Additionally, we discuss the break in diplomatic ties between Russia and NATO.Robert Fantina, journalist and Palestine activist, joins us to discuss Israel.

What's The Connection Between PTSD & Emotional Eating? https://psychologyofeating.online/ss/ Are you ready to transform your relationship with food in a lasting and meaningful way? What if you could help others find the path to greater freedom and joy with food as well In today's episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, Marc David speaks with Yeny, a 41-year old Venezuelan about her challenges with emotional eating. Yeny had a precipitating event — an accident while on vacation in Utah — that forever changed her life. After several months in a wheelchair, Yeny defied all odds and regained the ability to walk. To others, Yeny now appears in perfect health, but she's struggling to let go of the memory of her accident and the dark days of her recovery. Marc makes a powerful connection for Yeny between PTSD and emotional eating, and gives her key tools to begin to unwind from all she's been through. Key Insights: Regardless of the cause, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can give rise to emotional eating and other unwanted eating challenges. It is the brain's way of trying to cope with past traumas. When under stress, our natural instinct is to self soothe. One of the easiest ways to do this is to turn to food. This is both normal and natural, and this is nothing to beat yourself up about. Eating is an emotional experience. From birth, we are hard wired to experience joy, comfort, and nourishment through eating. We often respond to stress by eating. And guess what? This isn't always a bad thing. It's time to get off the self-judgment train, while also discovering other ways to create a relaxation response in our bodies. As we do this, the impulse to reach for food in times of stress diminishes. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapeutic technique for transforming PTSD. If you're dealing with persistent PTSD, finding a therapist who specializes in EMDR is highly recommended. With his dual training in clinical nutrition and psychology, Marc David has spent the last 40 years helping people around the world heal their relationship with food. As the founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, he reaches millions each year through his books, speaking engagements, celebrated podcast series, and his internationally-acclaimed Mind Body Eating Coach Certification Training.

Chris Garaffa, web developer and technologist, joins us to discuss Facebook. Facebook has come back online after a major service disruption.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline has been charged with gas and is ready to send badly needed energy to the fuel-starved EU. However, despite this crisis, anti-Russian forces are working to disrupt the opening of the pipeline.Mark Sleboda, Moscow-based international relations security analyst, joins us to discuss Lithuania. The tiny Eastern European nation of Lithuania is building a military base in hopes that more US soldiers will fill the barracks. The US has a massive number of military bases around the world, and observers suspect that they will leap at the chance to create another opportunity to launder US treasury dollars through military operations.Roger Harris, human rights activist and board member for the 32-year-old anti-imperialist human rights organization, Task Force on the Americas, joins us to discuss Venezuela. The US empire is moving to extradite Venezuelan diplomat Alex Saab, and there are reports that he is already facing torture. Meanwhile, Forbes has run an article accusing the diplomat of being a criminal "money man."Jim Kavanagh, writer at thepolemicist.net & CounterPunch and the author of "Danger to Society: Against Vaccine Passports," joins us to discuss Julian Assange. In his latest consortiumnews.com article, Jonathan Cook argues that the US empire did not need to poison Julian Assange. He goes on to say that the so-called "legal" machinations that are being used are every bit as rogue and unjust as Mike Pompeo's gangster proposal for kidnapping and assassination.Professor Peter Kuznick, author and historian, and Professor Ken Hammond, professor of East Asian and global history at New Mexico State University and activist with Pivot to Peace, come together to discuss China. As the US fumbles through a ham-handed policy towards Taiwan, China is making it clear that they are deadly serious about their red lines. US neocons have shifted their war machine to Asia, but they may be playing a losing hand.Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, joins us to discuss Iran. Iran has made it clear that they require the removal of sanctions for them to accept the US back into the JCPOA nuclear deal. Also, the Islamic Republic has been formally accepted into the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.Dr. Iyabo Obasanjo, professor, epidemiologist, veterinarian, and the daughter of former Nigerian President Mr. Olusegun Obasanjo, joins us to discuss Africa. The US empire is now working to expand its military operations in Africa and the oil-rich nation of Nigeria is ground zero for its proxy wars.
On Episode 396 of the Colombia Calling podcast, we get to discuss the disease of leishmaniasis in the context of the Colombian armed conflict and post conflict period with post doctoral fellow Lina Beatriz Pinto-Garcia. Pinto Garcia's ethnographic monograph explores how the Colombian armed conflict and a vector-borne disease called cutaneous leishmaniasis are inextricably connected and mutually constitutive. The stigmatization of the illness as “the guerrilla disease” or the "subversive disease," is reinforced by the state's restriction on access to antileishmanial medicines, a measure that is commonly interpreted as a warfare strategy to affect insurgent groups. Situated at the intersection between STS (Science and Technology Studies) and critical medical anthropology, her work draws on multi-sited field research conducted during the peace implementation period after the agreement reached by the Colombian government and FARC, the oldest and largest guerrilla organization in Latin America. It engages not only with the stigmatization of leishmaniasis patients as guerrilla members and the exclusionary access to antileishmanial drugs but also with other closely related aspects that constitute the war-shaped experience of leishmaniasis in Colombia. This work illuminates how leishmaniasis has been socially, discursively, and materially constructed as a disease of the war, and how the armed conflict is entangled with the realm of public health, medicine, and especially pharmaceutical drugs. The problems associated with coca cultivation and leishmaniasis cannot be dissociated from cross-border events such as forced disappearance and the massive migration of Venezuelans who arrive in Colombia looking for survival alternatives, including coca production.

Anamaria Sayre | September 22, 2021 maye's sultry vocals and ethereal energy conjure a world in which areperias shrouded in hazy bubbles and twinkly lights feels astonishingly normal. The enchanting pop singer fills her "El Tiny" home stage — the artist's favorite Venezuelan eatery in Miami — with family and friends, su propia gente. She opens with a short and simple rendition of the soon-to-be-released "Maybe Baby" before dropping her instrument and transitioning to an up-tempo, vocal-driven performance of "Yours." Picking the electric guitar back up, she strums along with a steady percussion and accompanying guitars for a soulful premiere of brand-new track "Descifrar," emanating an understated and consistent confidence fitting for a pop reina on the rise. She closes out the set with a full-bodied execution of "Tú," showcasing her signature tropicalia-meets-dream pop sound. maye's effortless sashay from English to Spanish in her songs and speech represent an important facet of the El Tiny audience. Featuring a whole crew of Venezuelan-Americans, including her famous Latin singer-songwriter papá, Fernando Osorio on the traditional Venezuelan cuatro, the third performance in our Hispanic Heritage Month series authentically represents the experience of a family like maye's — one that exists in both planes, two worlds. Given a moment and a platform like this, maye seizes the opportunity and creates an alternate universe, where barriers of culture and language dissolve and areperias sparkle.

我不喜欢「元宇宙」这个词语。这个从科幻小说「雪崩」中找来的词，正装下太多的东西，同时也变得空洞。而它的泛滥和火热，只表示了资本对泡沫的制造和追逐。 但这期节目中我们依然提到了这个词语。这是因为不久前，我在播客「Planet Money」听到Video Gaming The System (https://www.npr.org/2021/07/21/1018915121/video-gaming-the-system)这一集时有了一些触动。这一集中所讲的故事本身和「元宇宙」无关，但却让我思考了些许与之相关的东西。 之后，我分享给了身边一些朋友，也做了一些探寻。我想知道，和科技最无关的那群人为何会被拉入这样一个虚拟世界，而拥抱这个概念的投资人和创业者们忽视掉的又是什么。 所以这期节目，就是我和我的合伙人丁教（Diane）在一番探寻之后的交流。 也因此，这是「声东击西」和「科技早知道」联合发布的一期节目。你能听到为什么在 Video Gaming The System 这一期中，我会联想到「元宇宙」，这一期所讲的故事又有哪些后续。哪些成为现在资本所追逐的东西，而哪些可能也为未来带来隐隐的不安。 小勘误 本期节目 25:08 与 31:31 处，徐涛所说 Gary 应为 YYG 创始人 Gabby Dizon。特此更正，请多见谅。另，主播并不是游戏玩家，所以对游戏的解释有错误之处，请多指正。 #加入我们# 声动活泼正在招聘「内容研究员 」、「业务拓展和合作管理总监/经理」、「声音设计师」、「播客制作实习生 」、「内容营销负责人」及「节目制作人」，查看详细讯息请在公号「声动活泼」回复暗号：入场券 。简历接收邮箱
当风投圈和科技媒体圈大肆讨论「元宇宙」的时候，有些人认为这是一波新科技趋势的开始，也有人认为这只是旧瓶装新酒的 buzz word。但在这些热潮概念背后的真实世界里，元宇宙正在以我们此前未能看到和想到的方式发生。 今年 7 月，播客「Planet Money」 做了一期关于饱受通胀折磨的委内瑞拉人，如何通过一款有 20 年历史的网络打金游戏 RuneScape 赚生活费的故事。无独有偶，在去年疫情最严重的时候，Axie Infinity 这款基于 DAOS 的手游也因为其本身「边玩边赚」的属性，逐渐发展为菲律宾小镇居民收入的主要来源。 RuneScape 和 Axie Infinity 究竟是什么样的游戏？委内瑞拉人、菲律宾人为什么会通过这些游戏赚取生活收入？通过这些游戏赚取收入的方式有哪些风险？当通过游戏赚钱成为一种常态，真实世界的生存环境是会变得更好还是更坏？ 本期节目，声动活泼的两位创始人 Diane 和徐涛一起讨论了元宇宙游戏中的经济生态和它们对现实世界带来的影响。 小勘误 本期节目 25:08 与 31:31 处，徐涛所说 Gary 意指 YYG 创始人 Gabby Dizon。特此更正，请多见谅。 #加入我们# 声动活泼正在招聘「内容研究员 」、「业务拓展和合作管理总监/经理」、「声音设计师」、「播客制作实习生 」、「内容营销负责人」及「节目制作人」，查看详细讯息请在公号「声动活泼」回复暗号：入场券 。简历接收邮箱

A constitutional court in Cape Verde has issued a recent ruling that would pave the way for the extradition of Alex Saab, a Colombian-born businessman indicted in 2019 for facilitating sanctions evasion and bribery schemes by the Maduro regime in Venezuela. His extradition from Cape Verde, combined with ongoing US efforts to extradite a Turkish money laundering suspect from Austria, could help expose a web of Iranian, Turkish, and Venezuelan illicit financial dealings. Aykan Erdemir joins our host Thanos Davelis to look at the connections between Turkey and Venezuela, Erdogan's defiance of US sanctions against Venezuela, and why these two extradition cases will be critical to follow moving forward.Dr. Aykan Erdemir is the senior director of the Turkey program at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and a former Turkish lawmaker. He is also a frequent contributor to debates on illicit finance and sanctions evasion.Read Aykan Erdemir's latest policy briefs for the FDD: Businessman's Extradition to U.S. Could Expose Turkish-Venezuelan Collusion to Evade SanctionsU.S. Should Intensify Efforts to Extradite Turkish Money Laundering SuspectYou can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here: Cyprus recovers looted 18th century church doors from JapanPresident expects to attend working breakfast with Guterres and Tatar in New York
Corina Jimenez-Gomez, faculty at Auburn University, and Lauren Beaulieu a behavior analyst for 20 years join us to discuss the importance of culturally responsive services in ABA. Along with their extensive work educating others in this area, they each bring their personal experiences to this important conversation. Corina is a mother and Venezuelan native now living in Alabama. Lauren also shares insights she has gained from her marriage to an Italian immigrant. There is so much rich information about how professionals can take responsibility and action to better serve families. One bit of advice offered to those just beginning their careers was, “Do a self-assessment and then get the training and focus on those soft skills that we tend to ignore in masters programs. Focus on relationship building. You may have to step outside your program to get that.” Training: https://institute.centralreach.com/pages/cultural-competency-in-applied-behavior-analysis Interested in ABA Services for you child?

Exactly 40 episodes ago in December 2020, freelance journalist in Colombia, Joshua Collins (@InvisiblesMuros) made his first appearance on the Colombia Calling podcast talking about the border region at Cucuta and with neighbouring Venezuela. So much has happened since then and we've collaborated on projects from Cucuta for the New Humanitarian and the Globe and Mail reporting on the tragedy of the Venezuelan migrants crossing into Colombia and making the journey South all the way to Chile in search of work. Collins has been busy, such is the life of a freelancer, and he gives us the lowdown this week on his adventures and travel to the region of Catatumbo, one of Colombia's most important coca growing regions. Here he discovers various things but you'll have to tune in to hear more. We also discuss the protests in Cali, police brutality in Colombia, disappearances and finally his new project with other journalists: Pirate Wire Serices https://piratewireservices.substack.com/

Growing up in West Michigan, David Vanderveen and his older brother learned how to surf among the sometimes ferocious fresh-water waves created during storms on Lake Michigan. He was arrested for skateboarding in empty city pools and was kicked out of school three times—twice for his poetry (once in 7th grade and again during his junior year at Wheaton College) and once for his exceptional cocktail mixology skills (also in 7th grade, but not at Wheaton). After some negotiations and promises to stop with the poetry, David matriculated to and graduated from Calvin College, Wheaton's sister school, with degrees in philosophy and political science. Due to a market shortage of philosophy career positions, he worked as an daily news editor and hand model in Japan, a director of public affairs in Michigan, co-founder of a bespoke crystal-powered chakra aligning jewelry company in the Midwest, a marketing director in the Napa Valley, the co-founder of a chaotic Venezuelan biotech and pharmaceutical company, a grassroots political organizer, an exporter of artificial heart valves to Pakistan, a technology sales and marketing executive, and chief technology officer at a series of small and large tech companies. David participated in the Dot-Com revolution (neither proletariat nor bourgeoisie) and briefly owned a small Red Bull distributorship as part of said revolution. Never one to quit, he failed to get off the Dot-Com merry-go-round before the music ran out. He left tech when the founder of Znetix, where David was the CTO, was arrested for the largest case of investor fraud in Washington State's history. Oh, and David also co-founded XS, a global energy drink brand that has generated over US $2 billion in revenue, sold more than one billion cans, and shared over US$500 million in profits with an army of independent business owners around the world. David has leapt from the frying pan into the fire multiple times and lived to tell about it. He doesn't recommend it. That said, if you're interested in a career-as-roller-coaster-ride and life as an adventure, David has a lot to offer.

This is one of those chapters of TCD that actually moves the whole kit and caboodle on a few notches, whilst also setting up what comes next. It's that bit in the movie that normally happens about 30 minutes in, when you have found out a bit about the main characters and one of them neatly explains what has really happened so far and what the hero is going to do to fix it. Or the bit in the play where one of the protagonists makes a point of explaining, in a stage whisper and directly to the audience, what the craic is. So after hitting you square in the face with an opening salvo of childhood holidays & village cricket, we close in on the finale of the first leg of the AOS European tour, with body maintenance in Hamburg and my favourite venue in Paris. And, just like all those movies, you are now ready for the set-up. In this case, the explanation of what is going to happen in TCD 72 and just enough of a tease to leave you on tenterhooks for the whole of the week. Spielberg would have been proud.
