Village Views: Galliano di Mugello In Tuscany, Italy
The village of Galliano di Mugello, in Tuscany, is a little more tranquil than many Italian towns, because it has no mobile service. But it’s not alone, as Italy ranks near the bottom of the European Commission’s index of digital competitiveness. Correspondent Seth Doane pays a call to a medieval town whose residents face challenges fostered by the “digital divide.”
Curacao Views: Iguanas At Christoffel National Park
We leave you this Sunday at Curacao’s Christoffel National Park, where it’s the day of the iguanas. Videographer: Mauricio Handler.
Curaçao, island in the Caribbean Sea and a country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is situated some 37 miles (60 km) north of the coast of Venezuela. Although physiographically part of the South American continental shelf, Curaçao and neighbouring islands off the northern coast of South America are usually considered to constitute the southwestern arc of the Lesser Antilles. The capital is Willemstad.
Christoffelpark is the largest national park of Curacao and a must see for everyone. The park has a rich variety of local flora and fauna. Nature lovers will find the park teeming with local birds and plants, including species, which are not easily seen elsewhere on the island. For example wild orchids, the Palabrua, the rare native barn owl. The Curacao White Tailed deer (of which there are only about 250 left) and much more.
Prescription Drugs: What Is The Right Price? (NEJM)
Why can’t the U.S. control prescription drug pricing as they do in the U.K., where per-capita spending is less than half our level?
In a capitalist democracy, many parties — the drug companies, medical associations, consumer groups — get to lobby their points of view. Is the problem intractable, or just an exercise in chaos?
Our three guests have written a book about the problem, “The Right Price: A value-based prescription for drug costs.” And although they don’t have a definitive answer, they do offer recommendations, interesting observations, and a way forward.

Tours: São Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal (4K)
The Azores Islands are a land of many wonders of the world. São Miguel island offers endless opportunities to be amazed at countless natural wonders, and is considered by many as one of the most beautiful places in the world. This walking tour explores quite a dramatic location: Farol do Arnel – Arnel Lighthouse.
At the end of an extremely steep narrow road, and suspended above the Atlantic Ocean, Arnel is São Miguel’s oldest lighthouse and was inaugurated on the 26th of November 1876. As we go down the steep route, stunning views over the strong Atlantic Ocean can be seen on either side of the road, until an unexpected and flabbergasting waterfall bursts from the high cliffs, right in front of our eyes, when we approach one of the many road’s curves.
This walking tour in Açores ends down at the bottom of the cliff and the waterfall, past the Farol do Arnel lighthouse, and quite close to the very strong big waves that were coming that day.
