America's Debt Crisis Explained

a lecture in English

Fact: America's national debt stands at $17 trillion. That's a tough number to grasp. Most people will never come close to making $1 million in any given year. How can we understand the magnitude of the hole our country is in? Well, imagine you owed your credit card company $200,000. On top of that you have to pay them about $4,000 per year in interest. You are bringing in $150,000 per year, but you are spending way more than that. How are you going to ever pay back that $200,000 debt? And what happens if you default? Well, that is America today. The problem is clear. And we brought Michael Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, to propose a solution.

LE DONNE DELLA VUCCIRIA - Miu Miu Women's Tales #6

a narrative film in no language


In "Le Donne della Vucciria", sixth Miu Miu Women's Tale, Palestinian female director Hiam Abbass contemplates the transformative power of clothes, music and dance in a charming, evocative study of the women of the Sicilian city of Palermo.

"Coincidence... I was visiting Palermo when I received the demand to direct one of the Women's Tales for Miu Miu... - says Hiam Abbass - It was evident that Palermo had to be my set, my story. Her Donne were to be my characters, her Pupi were to be my inspiration. This city contains beauty, history, tradition that makes one wonder with a big smile... Certainly a space where imagination meets the creation of a great designer and makes her collection dance in the magical universe of the 'Sicilian Capital'... "

In the Vucciria, the heart of Palermo's historic old city, strains of quintessentially Italian traditional music drift into a dressmaker's workshop on the warm breeze, carrying the anticipation of the long summer evening, and perhaps a little magic too.

The dressmaker sews in time, creating a mysterious collection of traditional puppet costumes, while the square below comes alive with music and dancing. As a cast of vibrant women rise and join the musicians in a crescendo of spinning polka dots and clapping metallic suede heels the dressmaker looks on, leaving us to wonder who really pulls the strings of this intoxicating fiesta.

We hear about calories all the time: How many calories are in this cookie? How many are burned by doing 100 jumping jacks, or long-distance running, or fidgeting? But what is a calorie, really? And how many of them do we actually need? Emma Bryce explains how a few different factors should go into determining the recommended amount for each person.
