Swarovski – ett märke som får modet att gnistra  

Swarovski är ett företag som har fått modevärlden att bokstavligen blänka med hjälp av gnistrande kristallglas som slipats för att skimra som stjärnor i smycken och på kläder. I drygt hundratjugo år har detta familjeägda företag, baserat i Watten i Österrike, producerat kristallglas. Det vill säga glas som glänser lite extra.Swarovski är ett företag som är djupt involverat i modebranschen, på olika sätt. Deras glaskristaller pryder inte bara kläder och smycken. Märket samarbetar även nära med stora mode-organisationer som varje år delar ut prestigefulla priser och stipendier, till mode- och accessoardesigner. Amerikanska CFDA och brittiska British Fashion Awards är ett par exempel.De samarbetar även med en hel del trendkänsliga artister, som ofta syns i kläder med just Swarovskikristaller, både på scen och privat. På senare tid har både Beyoncé och Rhianna väckt uppmärksamhet för sina glittrade outfits på olika galor. Det är kort sagt nära samarbeten som pågår mellan mode och Swarovski. Det är förstås ingen tillfällighet. Märket har jobbat hårt på saken de senaste tjugo åren. För lätt var det inte. Om det berättar vi mer i veckans program.I programmet träffar vi också glitteraktivisterna i konstnärskollektiv Glitterlickin’. Vi pratar med förstaårseleverna på Beckmans Designhögskola som för sjätte året i rad fritt har fått tolkat årets Nobelpris. Och så möter vi glaskonstnären Simon Klenell, som nyligen var aktuell med utställningen ”Rundgång” i Stockholm.Veckans gäst är Cecilia Andrén, smyckesexpert.

@SoundsLikeMSJ: Many of the converts I spoke to were previously isolated, and found Islam through social media and the internet.

Russia Sells Large Stake in Oil Giant Rosneft  

Almost 20% of the Russian state-controlled oil company Rosneft is about to pass into the hands of the mining and commodities-trading giant Glencore and Qatar's sovereign wealth fund. We speak to Energy Markets Editor David Sheppard from the Financial Times about the significance of the deal. Plus, it's said to be the biggest discovery of oil for the past three decades. The Kashagan field is in the northern Caspian Sea, in waters owned by Kazakhstan. But with a series of delays in getting the field open, the big question now is how long it will take investors in the project to get their money back, or even make a profit. The BBC's Abdujalil Abdurasulov reports from the official ceremony. The Indian government's recent decision to withdraw higher-value banknotes was designed to curb corruption. In the short term though it's led to chaos and confusion. But some companies and shrewd operators are managing to profit from the disruption. We hear from Shilpa Kannan in Delhi. Also on the programme, Can the Governor of Iowa help rebuild Donald Trump's fractured relations with Beijing? And what do you do when a party invite goes viral? The father of a 15 year old girl has opened the doors to more than a million people at his daughter's party in Mexico. The BBC's Roger Hearing is joined throughout the programme from Singapore by Simon Littlewood, President of management consultancy AC Growth Delivered, and from Washington DC by Peter Morici, Economist at the University of Maryland.

Harriet Martineau  

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss Harriet Martineau who, from a non-conformist background in Norwich, became one of the best known writers in the C19th. She had a wide range of interests and used a new, sociological method to observe the world around her, from religion in Egypt to slavery in America and the rights of women everywhere. She popularised writing about economics for those outside the elite and, for her own popularity, was invited to the coronation of Queen Victoria, one of her readers.

Conditions are ripe for a genocide in South Sudan  

There are some frightening warning signs that a genocide may erupt in South Sudan. The country has been at war with itself for the better of three years, ever since a political dispute between President Salva Kiir and his Vice Preisident Riek Machar turned into an armed conflict between those two men. The conflict took on ugly sectarian dimensions--these men hail from different ethnic groups--and peace has been elusive.    In recent weeks, however, it seems that the government of Salva Kiir is readying itself to commit ethnic-based mass atrocities for reasons that my guest Cameron Hudson explains. Cameron is the director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. He's also a former CIA officer with extensive background in the region. And in this episode, he explains what conditions are ripe for genocide in South Sudan are ripe. 

Episode 223: Carl Zimmer  

Carl Zimmer, a columnist for the New York Times and a national correspondent at STAT, writes about science.

“[Criticism] doesn’t change the truth. You know? Global warming is still happening. Vaccines still work. Evolution is still true. No matter what someone on Twitter or someone in an administration is going to say, it’s still true. So, we science writers have to still be letting people know about what science has discovered, what we with our minds have discovered about the world—to the best of our abilities. That’s our duty as science writers, and we can’t let these things scare us off.”
