Nuclear-powered icebreaker Vaygach keeps Russia's northernmost sea route navigational even during the harshest months of the Arctic winter, maintaining the shortest route between northern Europe's busy harbours and those of Asia. The reactor produces enough energy to keep the ship running non-stop for four years without refuelling. A legacy of the old USSR, the icebreaker's days may be numbered.

With its complex maze of fjords, islands and channels, Aisen, in Patagonia is a beautiful but inhospitable area. It was opened up to settlement in the 1980s with the construction of the Southern Highway. Together with plots of land allocated to would-be settlers from all over Chile, the highway was part of a colonisation policy aimed at improving the country's access to the sea and its resources, as well as asserting its sovereignty in border disputes with neighbouring Argentina.

In the aftermath of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, Money: Why Do We Take Risks? is a penetrating exploration of why mainstream economists failed to predict the crash of 2008. To a group of scientists, called behavioural economists, the crash of 2008 was no surprise. Their experiments show our behaviour is bizarre when it comes to making decisions about money, with the mind often acting irrationally.
