Will there be a nationalist surge in the European Parliament election?

Will there be a nationalist surge in the European Parliament election?

I doubt that. They are clearly present in the political systems of practically all European countries. They will do fairly well in some cases, somewhat less well in some cases. I think the great success they might have is in Italy. The Lega Nord of deputy prime minister Salvini I think they're going to do badly, fairly badly in Germany, which is important then it remains to be seen what happens in France. The contest between Macron and LePen and Britain will be its own particular mess.

Will Theresa May's latest maneuver break the deadlock on Brexit?

I think that unfortunately is somewhat unlikely. She would make the fourth attempt to get the agreement through the House of Commons in the beginning of June. But at the moment it doesn't look like it's going nowhere. And that applies to the future of her prime ministership as well.

How much material do we use to send a package? Too much. Does recycling help? Yes – but not really. Packaging material often accumulates as waste, contributing to its own "polluting weight." To solve our packaging dilemma, Finland came up with RePack: a "circular" solution for the reuse of material.

A steady increase of violence in the Sahel region of Africa over the past eight years has imposed fear and hardship on millions of the people who live there. It has also pushed the governments of Sahel countries to work together to fight terrorists.

The region's troubles have also captured the attention of European leaders, who worry that if instability there continues, it could generate a movement of migrants that might well dwarf the EU refugee crisis of 2015-2016.

But is Europe helping to make things better?

Former CDC director – and current CEO of the public health initiative Resolve to Save Lives – Dr. Tom Frieden joins Ian Bremmer on GZERO World to talk about how to get the Covid-19 pandemic under control in the United States (hint: we need more data). As with politics, Dr. Frieden argues, all epidemics are local. And the outbreaks crippling much of the South and Southwest need local responses. But the main failing lies at the federal level. Things won't improve (and schools won't effectively reopen) Dr. Frieden warns, until Washington alters course. That is, of course, until an effective vaccine becomes readily accessible to all Americans. Though even that will likely not be the silver bullet we all want it to be.
