Nations of the World

This podcast series is intended to take you on a journey to each of the world's many fascinating and diverse nations. In each episode you will learn factual points as well as many details that make each nation unique. Each episode will include four segments. The first one - Bare Bones - will include the basics such as the country's capital, it's form of government, languages, religions, and more. The second one - Heart of the Nation - is where we go more in depth into the geography, wildlife, history, family life, education, arts and culture, imports and exports, to name a few. The third one - Who is? will discuss a few of the notable people from this country. The fourth one - (my favourite) Who Would've Thought? - where detailed unique facts about a country are presented. You will hear no debates, no political slants, and no personal opinions. You will get just the facts.Gaining knowledge about other people and their culture is often the best way to understand who they are and why they do things a certain way. This, in turn, can make us less fearful of differences and hopefully more accepting.

Armenia

This nation which was the first country to adopt Christianity as the state religion, has something very much tied into the Christian religion on its coat of arms. It is interesting to learn that although this item is not even in Armenia, and has actually still to be discovered, it is highly cherished by the people there.

Angola

Angola Show NotesAngola, in southwestern Africa, was a former Portuguese colony but gained self-rule in 1975. After 27 years of civil war, which ended in 2002, it is slowly emerging as a major economic powerhouse in Africa and has one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Yet, in an article from the New York Times in March, 2015 it said,” This is a country laden with oil, diamonds, Porsche-driving millionaires and toddlers starving to death. New Unicef figures show this well-off but corrupt African nation is ranked No. 1 in the world in the rate at which children die before the age of five." Does this nation have a plan to improve that number?·      [00:00] – Intro ·      [00:28] – Bare Bones·      [02:11] – Heart of the Nation·      [1:16:20] – Who Is?·      [1:19:58] – Who Would’ve Thought?Where did this information come from?Global Edgehttps://globaledge.msu.edu/countries/angolaNations Onlinehttps://www.nationsonline.org/oneworld/angola.htmOZYhttps://www.ozy.com/true-and-stories/how-operation-noahs-ark-saved-this-african-park/88742/News 24https://www.news24.com/news24/operation-noahs-ark-kicks-off-20011231National Parkshttps://national-parks.org/angola/kissamaAmnesty Internationalhttps://www.amnesty.org/en/countries/africa/angola/report-angola/BBC https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-13036732Republic of Angola Embassy in the United Kingdomhttp://www.angola.org.uk/virtual-angolaAirport Codeshttps://airportcodes.io/en/country/angola/Privacy Shieldhttps://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=Angola-Transportation-Aviation-and-Railhttps://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=Angola-Marine-TechnologyWorld Highwayshttps://www.worldhighways.com/wh8/news/angolas-key-road-projectWorld Bank:Open Knowledgehttps://openknowledge.worldbank.org/bitstream/handle/10986/33804/Angola-Road-Sector-Public-Expenditure-Review.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=yGunters Space Pagehttps://space.skyrocket.de/doc_sdat/angosat-1.htmTASS – Russian New Agencyhttps://tass.com/science/1196077Index Mundihttps://www.indexmundi.com/angola/Trading Economicshttps://tradingeconomics.com/angola/gdpWorld Atlashttps://www.worldatlas.com/articles/fun-facts-about-angola.htmlhttps://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-native-plants-of-angola.htmlIbraham Index of African Governancehttps://iiag.online/data.html?meas=GOVERNANCE&loc=AO&view=overviewFreedomhouse.orghttps://freedomhouse.org/country/angola/freedom-world/2021CMIhttps://www.cmi.no/publications/7719-cabinda-separatismWorld Population Reviewhttps://worldpopulationreview.com/flags/angolaThe Guardianhttps://www.theguardian.com/news/audio/2020/jan/24/how-isabel-dos-santos-became-africa-richest-woman-podcastOn His Own Triphttps://www.onhisowntrip.com/ten-interesting-facts-about-angola/Human Rights Watchhttps://www.hrw.org/world-report/2021/country-chapters/angolaCulture Crossing Guidehttp://guide.culturecrossing.net/basics_business_student_details.php?Id=8&CID=62021 Index of Economic Freedomhttps://www.heritage.org/index/country/angolaThe World Fact Bookhttps://www.cia.gov/the-world-factbook/countries/angola/The Crazy Touristhttps://www.thecrazytourist.com/?s=AngolaBBC Focus on Africahttps://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w172x1gzldxbwpcThe Washington Posthttps://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/world/countries/angola.htmlEvery Culturehttps://www.everyculture.com/A-Bo/Angola.htmlWikipediahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angolahttps://de.zxc.wiki/wiki/Nationalparks_in_Angolahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agostinho_NetoThe Bright Continenthttps://access.thebrightcontinent.org/items/show/31Capoeira Flagstaffhttp://capoeiraflagstaff.org/history-of-capoeira-angolaForbeshttps://www.forbes.com/sites/kerryadolan/2021/01/22/the-unmaking-of-a-billionaire-how-africas-richest-woman-went-broke/Angola Risinghttp://angolarising.blogspot.com/2011/10/angolas-diverse-vegetation.htmlA-Z Animalshttps://a-z-animals.com/animals/location/africa/angola/Taste Atlashttps://www.tasteatlas.com/most-popular-food-in-angolaJenman African Safarishttps://www.jenmansafaris.com/attraction/iona-national-park/Refworldhttps://www.refworld.org/docid/4954ce2523.htmlState Govhttps://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Angola-1.pdfFace to Face Africahttps://face2faceafrica.com/staging/article/five-famous-people-you-probably-didnt-know-are-from-angola

Albania

Albania has emerged from a communist state in 1991, and a completely isolated nation with no allies but China, to a parliamentary republic with several trading partners and currently pursuing a path of greater Euro-Atlantic integration.
