Diamond in the Mind: Live 2011, was filmed at the MEN Arena in Manchester, England on December 16, and features a set list that's heavy on the classics, yet respectful of the band's well-received, Mick Ronson-produced All You Need Is Now. A winning blend of style and substance, it's remarkable how well Duran Duran have aged since their '80s heyday. The band tears through ancient (by pop culture standards) radio staples such as "The Reflex" and "Hungry Like the Wolf" with the same enthusiasm that they afford more recent offerings like "Girl Panic" and "Before the Rain," teasing the audience with a rowdy mash-up of 1984's "Wild Boys" and Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax" before sealing the deal with a seven-and-a-half-minute version of "Rio."

Throwing an enormous Woodstock-style music festival in the middle of the Sahara desert–the gorgeous photos included in the booklet to Festival in the Desert make clear–isn't exactly easy. Held during the last three years in the shifting sands of northern Mali, the Festival in the Desert has brought together a mix of desert nomads and pop stars to play sublimely enchanting music in some of the harshest but most starkly beautiful conditions imaginable. Luckily for us, the 2003 Festival produced this impressive and varied CD, mixing together tracks from Malian superstars like Oumou Sangare and Ali Farka Toure with lesser knowns like the Mauritanian singer Aicha Bint Chinghaly and the desert nomads Tinariwen, who a few years ago traded their rifles in for electric guitars when the civil war in northern Mali abated. The biggest name here, of course, is Robert Plant, who turns in a wailing medley of old blues tunes…

Decreed by David Letterman (tongue in cheek) on CBS TV’s The Late Show to be the pick of “Dave’s Book Club 2006,” Candy Girl is the story of a young writer who dared to bare it all as a stripper. At the age of twenty-four, Diablo Cody decided there had to be more to life than typing copy at an ad agency. She soon managed to find inspiration from a most unlikely source— amateur night at the seedy Skyway Lounge. While she doesn’t take home the prize that night, Diablo discovers to her surprise the act of stripping is an absolute thrill.

Together with Mauritius, Botswana is often categorized as one of two growth miracles in sub-Saharan Africa. Due to its spectacular long-run economic performance and impressive social development, it has been termed both an economic success story and a developmental state. While there is uniqueness in the Botswana experience, several aspects of the country’s opportunities and challenges are of a more general nature. Throughout its history, Botswana has been both blessed and hindered by its natural resource abundance and dependency, which have influenced growth periods, opportunities for economic diversification, strategies for sustainable economic and social development, and the distribution of incomes and opportunities.

Narrator: Nicol Zanzarella

When Michelle Damiani dreamed of living in Italy, she imagined her family as it was in Virginia - her husband filling every moment with work, her teenage son experimenting with sarcasm, her daughter smiling at the scent of lilacs, her baby-cheeked son methodically clicking Legos together, and herself hovering over the happiness of them all - only surrounded by ancient cobblestone alleys and the sound of ringing Italian. What she didn't know was how Italy would work to change them all.
