"Alistair has told many stories of the moth from slams to the main stage, and here's one from an open mic story slam We produced in Denver. Where we partner with public radio station Kunc a note that the story contains the use of a homosexual slur. Here's Alistair Bane live at the mall. When I was 13. I got my first horse. His name was Bo. He was a half inch over pony class. Chest that With serve anonymous breeding history. Not very well trained a little bit mean and shaggy coded, but I didn't mind because he was mine, and I was willing to put the hours I knew it would take to train him in Because he was the one part of my life that didn't feel dark and dangerous. At that point, my dad had dropped me off with my mom is small town in central Illinois. She had enrolled me in a Catholic school where I was the only native person otherwise white school. Felt different, but that wasn't the only reason. The kids had another name. For the reason I was different Words like fag, queer it and freak. I heard that all day. The teachers told me if I didn't act so weird, maybe I won't get in trouble being bullied and when I went home, although my mom's words work quite that crude Her sentiment was the same. Everything I did how I walked, I talks and disappointing Every afternoon. I would get to go to the stable. And to settle a bow and go for a ride. I spent so much time grooming him and training him that within a few months, the first time we went into the church size ring. He was for this, and we walked out with a long, shiny satin blue ribbon in front of everyone who had thought that we were misfits. For just that moment, Everything felt good. Like story every temptation Over the course of the next few months As I entered a third grade, it seemed like the bullying got worse. And at home, I had decided it was time that finally Said it out loud to my mother came out and her reaction was everything I feared it would be and more worse. You could almost feel her disapproval through the walls in the house. And at that point it seemed like even when I was at the stable with Bo, those rights that time I had with him where it enough and there's this darkness. It was Encroaching on my very spirit voice inside me that said, Maybe there is no place I would ever belong. No use going on one Saturday morning. I found myself in the bathroom looking in the medicine cabinet and my mother's newly Refilled prescription of tranquilizers thinking that would be so easy that night before bed to take them all. Kids with no one to bully on Monday. Weather would have no one to say was embarrassing the family I left him there doing they'd be there and went out to the stable. I saddled up Just say that Dad's gonna do something good for him something and make him happy because even if I felt like I couldn't feel happiness, same or he could, so I wrote him down by the airport, where there's a long dirt road. Take him down there and let him just run to his heart's content. As we got near, I could feel him getting excited. He knew what was coming next. As we turned the corner onto that road, I step in my stirrups like I was a jockey and the Kentucky Derby. I let him have his sprains and he took off. Had heard someone say wants that if your true horsemen there comes a day when the communication between you and your horse ceases to be the tug of rain. Where notch of Andy and you simply become one with that animal. And as he ran flat out down that road, I began to feel that happen. Was dance if he and I could speak Without any cues from myself. He ran faster and faster, And as we approach the end of the road, there's a dead inside by then have to ring them and he knew what to do. He slid to a stop pivoted on his back legs. And ran back to the other direction. And as he did, it felt almost like that little horses, joy of being alive on a fall day, running full out under Chris Blue sky with the smell of the dried corn in the field next to us. Came up through those reins. And ran through my body like electricity. So everything was suddenly quiet. In clear and beautiful. We reached the end of the road. And standing. There was a woman outside her car. She stopped and was watching us. She smiled, waved at me and said You and the horse. You're the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Thank you, I said That was enough. In my culture, we say horses have the ability to heal. And I know that that's true..
Remembering The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster On Its 10-Year Anniversary
"Years ago today, a massive earthquake and tsunami devastated northeastern Japan. Nearly 20,000 people were killed, entire towns were destroyed. Disaster triggered multiple explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, sending radioactive material into the air. It was the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. The power plant was built near a town called Okemah. MPR's Cat Lawn Store went back last year. Well to show that there are only old people here, which, I guess includes me, so that's why young family would want to live here. Any school hospital or grocery store is miles away. That's resident Kazuko Endo, who launched or from that gardening outside one of oh comas, newly built homes. Over the past few years, O Koma has slowly started to open back up after sitting empty for years less than 200. People Now live in the town that used to be home to over 11,001 person and moved back to O Koma. Masato sake. He's nearly 100. The construction company he owned, helped build several of the nuclear reactors at Daiichi Cuckoo on in this town needed nuclear. We co existed with it, and I profited from it. But now look at the town will never be the same real. You quit the name the old downtown. Oh, coma is still abandoned, and Japan's government is still figuring out how to completely clean up Fukushima's damaged reactors. Alistair Gail covers Japan for the Wall Street Journal. He's gone back to the region over and over in the decades since the disaster. Gail's latest trip found a mix of massive engineering and empty streets. So I went with a colleague to the city off because then Toccata, which was one of the worst hit cities by the tsunami in 2011, it's on the northeast coast of Japan. On But you just really felt like there weren't many people around. And part of that was because of covert. But really, it's because you know, in the main part that a lot of people have just left that city.

"Alistair Adele. Excuse me, has asked to retired Superior Court judge To review the charges against the 16 defendants here, never more than 15 minutes away from today's top stories on Arizona's news station, K T a R news coronavirus in Arizona. Well, that that bill that statistic I hurdle earlier if they rang the bell once for every covert death in the United States, it would take 28 days, 28 days. So as we mark the half million milestone yesterday a half million people killed by the disease. Is that the novel coronavirus causes and confused why? We're arguing about non covert related items in the covert relief bill. I mean, it's bog in this thing down. Why are we? Why did they even have things in here that would bog this down? I mean, we've sat here and scratched our heads. If we're going to do this, if we're going to provide relief to people for who suffered a job loss, or maybe the loss of their business or these other things You know if we're going to send money to people directly from the government to give us give them relief, why we bargain it down with stuff that doesn't have anything to do with covert. And how can President Biden asked this of people who are concerned about the gargantuan nature of his $1.9 Trillion proposed plan? What would they have me cut? Would that be leave out? Shall we not invest $20 billion to vaccinate the nation. Should we not invest $290 million to extend unemployment assurance for the 11 Million Americans are unemployed so they could get by. Yeah, But if you believe in those things, why is the president Biden saying that when there's definitely pork in this bill at least $100 million for an underground train in the Bay Area? That's in the House version of this bill. You know that there's nothing more important to curing coded and stopping the pandemic than building a tunnel from San Francisco to Facebook. That's our D. C. Insider, ABC News political analyst Alex Castellanos talking with US last hour 100 million I think that we need to highlight the lawmakers who are adding these pork items to the relief bill. Well, you know, they're basically just delaying relief to Americans. I think that's a great idea. You know, I really do, especially when Congressman David Schweikert of Arizona says that the Democrats when it comes to You know, getting what they want, Including, you know, non covert items in the covert relief bill never been a time back in D. C, where you can cut the tension with a chain saw. The Democrats have basically made the decision that it's scorcher. They barely hold a majority in the house in the Senate, but they're going to do everything they can to destroy the Republican Party. So it turns out Lip service to bipartisanship, But zero actions the head that direction all right. Maybe Congressman Schweikert is overstating it a bit. But we have reached out to try and get Congressman Greg Stanton on this morning for his side of the negotiations it in all fairness. We reached out this morning, so him not having gotten back to us before Seven o'clock is understandable. But we're hoping to hear the other side of things because Wow, Why any pork in this? Why? Just doesn't make any sense. Yeah. Pay for the vaccines, pay people who have lost their jobs. All these other things. You could make a really great argument for But you can't make a good argument for building a train to, uh, you know, the crosses the bay. You might be returning a favor for a big donor or something. But you are not helping the American people by putting stuff in there. That just gonna delay aide But there is good news. Good Johnson and Johnson. They should. They could actually get FDA emergency approval by the end of the week for their vaccine, which, while it's not as effective as the Madonna and the Fizer just adds another, you know it's another bullet in the chamber. Well, if you will for for us to fight covert. So, uh and they're saying they could deliver 20 million doses by the end of March. So eyes Jamey's been reporting this morning. That would be enough doses, then. Bind in five weeks to vaccinate about half of all adults in the country, So that's the goodness. Let's focus on those things..

"Not embarrassed me yet again. Yes Sir Oh God looking. Good Alistair Yeah. I'm forty right. You'll feel happy. Happy Birthday Club. Yeah thanks I mean it was yesterday but yes there was traveled. I was in a plane three different flights for different airports so going back. How was it going back like leaving the kind of the safety of the hotel? Or whatever and dealing with the public and masks and everything. Young people were wearing masks so I had flown to the Netherlands and this is like five weeks ago. Six weeks ago at the height of the pandemic and that was that was weird because then there was the belief that it was the end of the world right yes afraid keeping totally distance liber depressed. Planes were like ten fifty percent capacity. Airports were totally mt like totally empty and immigration. Lanes are just walking food now. There was more activity. I would say it was like yeah. The plane was like thirty forty percent and there was people at the airport. So let let me back to back to normal. Now what's what's not normal for a Lotta. Ufc fighters is this whole fighting without a crowd. But a gentleman yourself. You're so used to fighting Japan all those years. Does it remind you of that with that? So Japan the definitely is a crowd right and the people. The biggest crowd was eighty. Eight thousand people have fought for two thousand. And what was it? Two thousand three two thousand five whatever so. The Japan audience is different. They're quiet but they make noise. You know they do. They won't pick cheer. They're very polite very nice. So no audience or Japanese audience. You cannot compare it Radha compare this to my one of my like earner fights all the way back ninety seven by kickboxing matches. Where I would try for two three hundred people audience and this kind of reminded me of that because it's like a small and it was different because this was like huge arena. No audience right there and then back in the days it was like yeah my own cities everybody kind of knows you two hundred three hundred people so it was all different but that is exactly what motivated me electrified me a different setting new setting. Hey I'm curious. Let's let's let's go. Let's not forget I including the wall side. I now have ninety fights keep mock CNN. Mail up front one Paul so for me. The the new impulses is very current. Nice. I really love fighting abroad fighting going to Beijing Card right China now. They're never never fought there. It does sort place you go often go so those things new experiences that really energize me seemed to be the amazing thing about you is you. There's nothing you haven't seen in the octagon as far as what somebody's going to do and you seem to be able to no matter what somebody is going to throw out. You seem to be able to stay calm. Adjust Harrison like. He had you in deep trouble in the first round. And you just you just knew what to do. You didn't panic. How bad was it. when he was on top either at that time. You don't know right because you're I mean you know your blood blood blooding all over the place but I was there. I was sharp. You know I'm still moving. I'm still fighting. I'm still trying to get up. He was definitely trying to To to to to hype Tranmere. I just just to me and just flower bunches. And that doesn't look good for the judges right so in my case it was just like we're not going to accept this. We're going to keep fighting and back to my feet or get on top. Whatever but we're not going to accept this. When he threw that kick and fell. That was a big turning point. I it just of course you knew you. You pounced Did you realize in that moment? That's a critical mistake that he just made. She grabbed his leg and kind of tripped him. let's forget. Walked is is a boxer. He's he's a strike. He's a boxer but he's not kicking so people that are not really used to educating Kinda Grasberg. Take him now. That was libertarian. Conrad I feel a little bit. Fatigued was also factor. I know you're listening. You said ninety two fights been in the game such a long time after everything that Walt Harris been through was it was it heart signing the to fight him because you know even like we love you like and people love you but because every because you knew. Everybody was going to be rooting for him. Because he's been such a horrible situation. He's such a horrible thing. That happened to him what his daughter was it was it was it any hesitation signing the fighting where you're just like look no. It's your personal tragedy for share right and We must we must stand still by that but we have to also continue and not for one moment. I was occupied with that. You know. Of course you'RE GONNA promos you're gonNA see the the emotions and stuff but To me I really approaches his sport. I do my best to prepare as best as maximum possible for for the fight events and Everything else is just you know. I try not get distracted. I just tried to stay focused point. Of course it's a personal tragedy for him but Yeah you know. It's a sport as well. I even hug most when you came in. You seem like you were. You were very respectful and you give them a hug when you were taking your first lap around the cage but also he came in way to sixty four point five. I think I mean I mean you have to. He's there to knock you out so you obviously have to be ferocious in response to stay sharp but at same time. Waltz Guard Had the opportunity to brief medium Before I Glen Match in December so we did a PR to Arctic here. We're GONNA go online. We spoke a little bit Super Cool. Dude actually intently. We clicked and we're like trying to get off the pilots. Just get this over. Let's fight then. Of course the tragedy happened You know I did. It did send a message of best wizards because of course you know. I'm friggin myself. Yeah then if I didn't happen then they re book for this event you came up with is not my request shoots. I'd just tried to approach his sport. You don't want your bothers me and I don't want to talk about the past but you were. You were talking about possibly like title. Run you delicious by this fighting over the weekend. Fantastic before this fight you list three fights before rose strike which. I'm going to get to in a second. You took out all the neck. Hooters looked great and Pavlovich. So you took out those two guys first round. Tko's and then you had to fight roses strike which you were clearly ahead and then you had the controversial stoppage if it wasn't for that bullshit which means you think is bullshit. I mean we like to strike. It's not its fault but he did it was it was a stoppage and I might even look into kidding that undone because if you look at the fight. He's waving offers zero seconds left. There's no threat. There's no it was a it was a bad stoppage. Anyway look at it. The only the only argument that you would have is ida busted lips but then when you look at the Robbi lawyer Sam bus live. They just loved back on show. Yeah Sorry Matt. If it was the busted lip would they have a doctor look at it? I wouldn't they call an doctor look at something. Before was a stoppage medically waves and all. This is intriguing as well so I'm giving it to discuss legal team because he waited zero seconds. Let's actually zero seconds left. We you know those segues. Yeah so defied was so I'll have looked into them but listen in Anyhow. I would not have any problem running back. He probably wouldn't want any of it. Because you know I bet she schooled him in that fight and again you know. Take away from the fight under finish skies and that was what. I was focused on Walt. I'm getting a call from a different number but now should I was living my takeaway going into the wall. I winning Senate she scouts. We need to finish him around to around fray whatever we need to finish these guys because then there's no argument. And what was the difference between you? And Walt came in to sixty four and a half into a little bit where you looked lots more than him was that just where you alive to fifty okay. Not Bad for fourteen minutes too much now. Speaking of running running it back I mean France is gone us. Been looking like better than ever steamrolling people and you know. There's some people saying that although if he meets a crisper more technical striker because a lot of times he's not it's it does look at technical just Harajuku but he's so damn powerful. What is your take on that because my thing is yes. Striker could strike and five to one. But it's that one strike. He's so damn powerful. You are a better strike in your more technical. What is your take. You see anything in there where you want another crack out. I definitely want another crack at him. But yeah I. I'm going to enjoy some weeks off. Francine GONNA look very impressive in in his fight with stock getting better and better right. Yeah can't say anything about twenty-second there's not much the really dissect when it's twenty. You can't say anything about it. I think Francis insanely strong. I think have has insane reflexes. Ride speed and reflexes and he's definitely a force to be reckoned with. Yeah that being said he's on there. I'm in right and you want another shot at the title. You said you'd like to take another title. What do you think it's going to take for that to happen? Well okay so. The landscape is alluded tricky right. But I don't know things have to kind of fall exactly in place I think. Also with the current situation. That's a little bit delayed slow. That could be an interim title. Maybe coming up somewhere to me. Injuring tidal or real titled to me. The same thing it's about right. Try would be very motivated for that but listen we have to. What's what's up. No rush folks on the things at hand. That's my health. My Dad all those things. The trainings excellent team is excellent cumulus station in Denver Colorado and just one piece at a time. An we'll come Lord want but we're just going to stay focus and you you've You switched can't before in the past. You're staying with team a ovation. Yes I I. I had four fights now serve. I think reform very strong performances. It was actually victory. We're beating the guy for five rounds you get clipped. I'm not out on not sleeping. I'm getting back to my feet actually spoke to Dan Burglar. Outta this week about it. Then we're such a good guy right. He doesn't he doesn't mean bad but yeah it was a bad call right when you're waving office. Zero seconds left with no fret. I'm back on my feet and basically just The string legacy of that. We know we're going to have a look at what we can do about that because it is it is annoying me a little bit and otherwise this would otherwise next time. It'll be alright if we take all those things in the council general. I think it was the fact that he walked away and left you there and then the time was up. I mean I don't see how you lose that fight. I thought that was a very unfair stoppage. And it does stop the momentum of of a potential title forty still.
"So I thought maybe we could start about just talking about what the category of undrivable really means to the industry. What is traditionally mean? This is a favourite subject but also for me a sore subject. The term undrivable refers to as yet the inability to drug a protein or protein family or a piece of origny. It said an unfulfilled promise. Imagine Drug hunting with small molecules. Where I've worked and trained as sculpting drug molecule that fits into the pocket of a protein. What if there's no pocket? That protein may be regarded in our discipline as a Priori undrivable. So is it always shifting kind of category or was there a particular group that always was understood to be that kind of undrivable? It's very much both you know. Mars is unworkable right until we arrive there serious. Human Diseases of the non infectious nature are often caused when pathways go awry and these cellular pathways are driven by little machines called proteins. That are globular and They have in where biology occurs. Enzymes that metabolize food and such when these pathways go awry. We tried to identify a critical note in that. Pathway typically a protein and work to understand functionally. If it's too active in which case we tried to inhibit it or not active enough in case we tried to activate it in the discipline of drug discovery. This biological knowledge is very powerful but sometimes we regrettably find out that it's a type of protein or protein. Fold that has never been drug before and this creates real challenges. So this is the undrivable when we have no idea how to get that protein there these are the undrivable proteins and and there are whole families of very tantalizing protein targets creating a conceptual risk that often keeps many scientists away from pursuing coordinated efforts in drug discovery. In my time as a professor I studied the way genes were turned on and off and cancer as a cancer doctor. I was interested in the proteins that would cause the growth program to be activated to turn one cancer cell into two and so on and so on these proteins called transcription factors that bind. Dna turn genes on our consideration be beyond the reaches of drug discovery undrivable. Class which is regrettable because the perception that they may be hard to drug has kept many scientists away from even trying so people. Don't they literally? Don't touch it because it seems like such a challenge. There are a couple of important exceptions. The estrogen receptor binds estrogen. It is therefore drug -able by the sex hormone estrogen rest revile. But the most commonly activated gene all of cancer called Mick the protein that sits around the human genome orchestrating. The Growth Symphony has never been successfully drug even though it is one of the best. Validated targets in Over the last thirty years in cancer science. It's so interesting because I sort of assumed that it had to do with a lack of of biological knowledge. But it's not using the not. The biology is very well understood. But we just haven't understood how to approach it so what is changing now. What are where are we in the landscape of these undrivable? Categories of drugs. I mean one way to think about that. Is that in a sense? When we mean undrivable. It's undrinkable by the way we normally do things. And only when you start to develop these new methods you realize even in the old targets. There's other things you might WanNa hit in other ways to hit it. That's right one of the things that really interests in years. You know we think about targets. We add adjectives to the targets. We HAVEN'T DRUG TARGETS. In the fullness of time there may be no such thing as an undrivable target when you take in sort of the full momentum of different modalities that we might go after a specific target. Can we take the other side of that coin for second? Is there such thing as a novel target a novel target in the language of drug discovery is maybe the first recognition that a protein is really involved in a disease process and the biological experiments have validated that protein or gene in that process novel targets may be fully drug -able like the proteins that sit on the surface of a cell that because of successful prior campaigns to drug kindnesses are now as a group considered easily drug -able but sometimes novel targets are in these undrivable protein families and this gives us pause? I believe that some of the best validated targets in disease biology would have clarified path to helping patients. If only we could get out of our own way and really commit to approaching these proteins as drug -able to challenge the dogma till echo of the the old concept that's right I'd love to hear what some of those successes that really sort of forged a whole new path forward for people were and then also break down the tech behind. What made those possible. I think a very fine example where drug discovery has taken down and undrivable protein. Target is our work to develop the first hitter of what's called foss face in this case a protein called ship to okay. Foss faces are some of the most interesting proteins in disease biology there. Fossil taste is very important for diabetes. And a couple extremely important for cancer you might know what a kind aces. This is a protein that drops what are called phosphate groups onto proteins and there are a great many important kindness. Inhibitor Drugs That followed once. Novartis developed the first if not one of the first called Glee Vic for chronic myeloid leukemia as there are interesting kindnesses that drop phosphates onto proteins. There are counteracting faces that pull them off Interesting and it's for no particular reason that kind aces are so commonly drugged and Fossa tastes are not Except that for twenty years people tried to make phosphates inhibitor drugs and they just couldn't do it. It's one of the most famous protein families in the UNDRIVABLE CLASS. And there's something really peculiar about it. Phosphates drug discovery campaigns almost always produce a very potent and sometimes very selective inhibitor of a pure enzyme studied. Say outside of a cell. Okay but these molecules don't work when the enzyme is inside of the cell the pocket. That's drugged in the phosphate. Tastes is very positively charged. You know how opposites attract the molecules that are discovered are very negatively charged. And they can't get into cells. Scientists Bang their heads against the wall for decades trying to make phosphates drugs for cancer and diabetes and other disease states and were unsuccessful. Well some very creative. Scientists at Novartis did really interesting experiment. They imagined that may be a way to inhibit. The FOSSA taste isn't to go for the most active site But to try to inhibit the enzyme through what we call an alistair excite to sort of sucker punch the phosphates at a different part of the protein and so we perform to high throughput screens. One with the full length phosphates that has two or three globular domains like three beads on a string and second full high throughput screening campaign where we just looked at the active enzyme. Pocket it self. We found two thousand hits in this essay and we through all of them out except to we only kept the molecules that would work in the full length protein but wouldn't work in the small format protein Basically that you'd find the the molecules that would hit the pocket that's only presence when the whole protein is there exactly drug discovery is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Performed thousands sometimes millions of experiments with chemicals to try to find the one chemical. That does what we want. We threw out all the molecules that would hibbitt inhibit the active site and kept only molecules. That worked when these other sites were present called Alistair excites. After many years of very careful science we produce the very first inhibitor of a phosphate tastes and the way this molecule works is it glues the ship to protein together we call it an intra within the same molecule and Intra Molecular Glue. What a cool

"Lifestyle. Wise acting can be a vicarious industry and I've certainly struggled with the rejection side of it and we were talking briefly before Abou- how having other strings to your bow to keep yourself entertained insane in the meantime how do you stop yourself from from flagging at times when you're not walking is I mean. It's such a bizarre industry in the industry rejection baseline and then as actors. We ought to be intended to be sensitive to emotional situations A Lotta time demands that on so to be you committed word that we did. We need to sort of be able to our emotional box of tricks when Bene- fries which which can lead deter expires parts of Canada. It's it's sort of a custom battle but again I think there's a lot of you touched on earlier about some people who swim their way through this business. Nobody believe anybody does. And we'll talk about that but lost a job. One of those classic. Come down to the last two massive job and it was arbitrate. But I didn't get it and it really in really had to find a way through. I broke it down into its constituent. Parts is it. You didn't. Why is it because of the shooter's either? The plane is part of giving you thankfully figured out the not just missed out planes characters desperate to investigate but I still didn't get her paw. There's no point in second place in this job. You WanNa get a job search and finally to the point where I just looked my son said you can and get a job. It's it's okay. Didn't job and enough people afterwards involved in the Carson Prices Vary Sweetie Gordon. Tyson said it was paper. Thin said we're so safari okay on the person that's playing the part. Yeah I would have cost them. I get it and so again. August one through life with just you know thirty five scripts. I still do that today tomorrow next year. Do that fiamme so again again. It's all bollocks but it's yeah how do you deal with. I think he has to do as many things as you can. I think if view if your if your life is defined by a word that I think that way kind of madness raid is that so much easier servants strive easy to sink contain. How do you do that? I think of all the Tony App all the time. A lot of it's really farm to think about it it when you're having to make decisions about decisions about the play or your you'll researching something but sometimes you're thinking shit. Do I mean. He's good a friend. London as on the negotiating something agreed with the highlight. I feel so to cloudy. And and I'm luckier. I my wife and I you know we're together with twenty years A boy growing up as really really fine. Young men in the healthy and that's a good day. Remind but I I'm like God I don't have it down until I think about what all the time all the time either work or thinking about not look all the time but I would say I'm about to direct shoot film which is kind of fabulously fallen into into my lap. And I'm sort of doing an interesting discovery about how I feel about. That goes quite wants to direct the notion sitting in a room with fourteen actors putting apply apply to meet with Tara. Just brakes do that. But equally had to reach the day on six actors and we had to do that at the table looked to me and it and we talk about it but then God she comes in the same good humor. What I'm GonNa do my practice going to do all this things and the one thing that did say to them which was on to the process and if if you ask a question and you hear me talking and unfunny on fudging a much if you could just up and saying coup bullshit because the passing and I didn't know but but I think I sort of feel landed and I'm really excited by they find out whether it's something to do but Easterby oh it's going to be director now but no not a tool not a tool but I think it's a nice tatum really enjoying and producing as well I set up a company with an exam. Today goes journalist who this. Yeah and we. We wanted to do so for loan time. We tried to write something twenties of that but we just kept into the notion of finding zoning and very short we option to novel. Good Brandy I mean we're talking twenty long twenty twelve so this thing seven years. We're making that out of America next year. which is amazing with talk because you only puns and we're doing a show of the UK which just started program developing funding and everything which is really exciting? That amazing racing writer. He's stacks was no respite. which is useful as doctor who was in writing but also a trickle oracle is a practical thing but thankfully the sensibility of work to the pieces? second-to-none so that's exciting. So I feel really enthused by that so to me but when I tape taping about work all the time that's also now part of the work that I think and there's no revenue stream now known as the great but it's more about and so we didn't loss on on on our dine but equally. You know there's this great house in the room which is which is really nice and so that feels important so so I mean if I did too young access just to find find him to collaborate. I think that's a now I think putting that way the toll thanks was one of the first people to look before then under the newest privilege working with him and I was asking him about terrible so sorry to increase but and he. He was the biggest advocate of being a kind of a policeman so he he produces and creates and yet okay. Is Tom Hands. You know if he wants to tell the story about some probably got great and student but equally passionate. He was into the word that he wants to do and also he said no he said I get stuff turned down. I which is really interesting seeing cheever. Steve said if you want want to make an fill about pets let's that's like the Yoga A.. Also he wants to do stories that he's not always in and they're like him mm-hmm so but I think it comes down to the same thing create create trying create. I should say but that's an increase create. Create some watches it. You are creating all the time and I think we should be doing all of that and more and just being part of a big old conversation and I think that's where we feel happiest couple with finding a way to pay the rent which yeah just as more and when you harm hard question. It's hard to do. He is so hard and I've often struggled with the numerous side jobs. I've had to do which then overtake take much of my time. And then I lose faith in the acting because I'm spending so much time having to do why don't want to do and I find it hard and resigned. Recently the press came out about actors talking more about the side jobs. They had to do my thing. It's really healthy because not everyone's making an income from acting mood time and always incomes like by the end of the month you know what interesting to be able to earn and GONNA pay mortgage and save and think about if you want to do that thing that you could work together to sort of make bliss things happen so yeah it's it's a really really ready hard profession and I think sometimes it gets a funny rally the going thing when you go get the all GonNa get a Prophet Jones. Always want to have those stocks to hand where you say the income uh-huh and the G. paid the film television. The Arts create for this lucky to can have create table. This wealthy Boston like any industry imposed by any stretch of the imagination.

That's really great. Let's do that so you. You always doing job examining and they could have turned around and it's not what you're seeing is about. Okay note I wanted to try it so Sort of doing multiple things could train for that sort of that discovery. Because I think a good day were screening is when you go out and you think we go. We got it and we got three versions of and then it's a direct as medium ultimately if they're really good at what they do in the editors great and they'll go away and then they'll piece the story together and if it works as a whole grain dozen okay but at least we've we've mind perhaps tax into the opposite of war.

Agendas access generally is to to to sort of elevate elevate material and bring bring a whole new layer of something to to a piece of Web so I find that fun as princess thinking is it. Is it goats. Yeah absolutely. It's so interesting. I think the the the show just brings up so many different wonderful things that people can relate to. I also just spoke to intimacy onset coordinator. You weren't onset patients. Name is either O'Brien and she worked with lots of the actors who had those these kinds of seas and it was just interesting. 'cause you could really then see the variety across the different characters my relationships and how that plays out wonderfully I it's just one of those few productions to explore that in really kind of different and fun and vibrant and interesting way and and. I think it's wonderful we were. I thought we were very early on in the whole intimacy coordinator sort of thing. Yeah it was. It was very new and it's amazing out to think one was this is because and so each came in and untrue billion. She'd probably be the first Osama. I think she was sort of figuring it out as well tell me what the end goal was which was to make say. SX SAFE for everybody to make sure at least retreated in a professional professional manner rather than anything Kinda slutty weird and so figuring out what the training process for that has really quick took the forefront of this which is brilliant but. Now it's it's a given and I think maybe the beginning people like hello. Yeah no absolutely. That sounds like a good idea. Idea has Iowa and of course it works beautifully and even I think everyone was like well. Yeah I mean we love you people working with us and it'll be a fine environment. It'll be safe rest of it but of course we lock him yet. Show that's US but there's dozens of others where but now it's really uncomfortable and it's really badly handled not intentionally. But that's just the way it is and it's horribly vulnerable and some of the scene Sunday. I mean the very opening opening senior season WANNA sex education. You're asking young people to be. I mean as vulnerable as you can public in many ways. It's extraordinary and the event of any a call with just so thankful that had been put in place But it's it's just it's it's you think wise is not yeah. What did people do it before I can? I can oh interested in waiting through it and found Vance things would have happened emotionally. You know. It's the ads really Graham Now there is thankfully much more to quality to not say generally probably not generally but I think in in in well done productions. That secure safety is now in place. But you know if anyone's naive to think that that is a true true true across all aspects of the industry as a long way to go content Eats it was a fabulous addition into the old.

"Donald Stage and screen. What do you have a friends on the process? It's it's it's a thing I do think about a lot I I love off. I never aspired to a film career. I never sort of when I want to be in the movies I thought film was you could tell a story on film On you could tell the story so very successfully on filming in one thousand nine hundred and twenty minutes or whatever but I sort of instinctively knew that while being a film is lovely sounds great but the kind of films that were being made in the ninety s confused merchant ivory films and I can the feminist you a source of nothing great in this country and so I thought well he managed to be films. Anyone can see it where I always loved the idea of television on the screen side of things. Because I thought well you're doing story long fall great time to explore story and then at least it will be put in front of an audience. The story that you working on tell we'll be told hold and people will see it. They make is entirely up to them. So film was never a thing. I was particularly interested in. I didn't make from for ages as an ages and ages television. I love the idea of it. For the sort of storytelling Williams reach the states. I I almost Conoco's to battle. Annoying is soothes sometimes. beat myself up about the notion of if if I didn't jump up and say the state state Tough and whether that's sort of Head but it's it's I do you. I love the price of it. I love the price of racing. I love the idea of being on some level all of that aspect I do struggle with repetition asylum and actually there was this brilliant quote recently and I think this great truth visit and he described it and I will paraphrase polling. He said what an audience. We'll see in a piece of this is the sort of dying in Mizzou sheeting star terribly dramatic but I think that that storm remain that way. You catch US something. Russell which is really instinctive and truthful in rehearsed I it takes everyone by surprise on stage and then you have to cross it into something which needs to sustain for weeks six months and I do I find that difficult so so do I prefer. It's such a tough question. I didn't as the reason not to it but what I do about working on camera is the capturing lightning in Hawaii where it is like a rehearsal in the sense that e everything will though the signing around we'll let alone since but the point. Appoint someone yells action in the point. Is someone else. Caught is the only true time that it's absolutely devoted to to the actors in the same and it feels extraordinary and it all depends on the material mostly doing but if it's good material than it can it can it. I can give you something so if you're in good hands as well I don't know I do I. I lost my. I lost my job for a long time after doing apply for a bunch of bunch of reasons just didn't feel the drawback to it actually and then I did go back and I loved it for a whole bunch of reasons because it was really fun to do the audience of the show. It was a success Blah Blah Blah. But I do. Struggle with the repetition and I love instinctive nature of working on camera especially on television can do because what's she's acquitted. which is great because so you you've got to be ready and I love all the love? The investigative nature of the script and the Chattan the discussions and I love all of that in the hot weather that demands that kind of gold. Mine accident something. Kind of extraordinary can happen. Doesn't always been a cab. Yeah throwing so. It's it's an internal struggle to dramatic a word that it's it's presence but do I want to get get back on stage. Yeah absolutely but but I think the final point of this is the fact that actually now. I think it's hard to find the right part. The right play at the right place with the right people that you will to collaborate with an is not gift. Anyone really gets the gets that gift. What do you want to do when you want to do it? The rest of don't and so I think that's tricky and why do any job the second doing apart from the fact that sometimes you good money we live so we'll see but yeah I would of course to play again. I don't think it'll be an amazing when I do but does the most books is to take and the chances of that happening for anyone pretty slick. And we'll see I think it practical terms and think maybe longevity in this very fickle business relies on an engagement and yeah with with the stage butts. I'm electoral like I do know that genuinely love doing stakes. I just don't get terry that don't as in don't don't particularly enjoy the experience but I've been very lucky in the sense that I've been able to play is easy to say. CEO Love Doing Television. I love doing television because sometimes people give me really nice parts to play on television. That's very different from just doing television because actually coming in for a day or two is is really really hard here know anyone there. Isn't that sense of cameraderie. There isn't one of the things things that they will give you if you're doing play whether you are playing a tiny honeypot and understudying and playing the lead so recently privileged very privileged position so my argument is very skewed in many ways. Plays bought being given interesting part. OCSTA- play in things to discussing tons of playing a palm. I love doing mm television for the very specific moderniser seventeen action caught but I know from semi sort of very privileged position because ninety deals to play uh oxen to join a company as well. So it's it's a the M visit complexity in which I shouldn't indict absolutely you brought incredibly big budget productions as mentioned before you were in the might manager which with a huge final playing the fandy and you act on rogue one as Geno driven. Do you notice the difference on the process when you're on these types of projects. Yes two things I'd say one big budget features versus television Is is two things scale but primary speed pace of which work generally film as much slow. Big Budget film film is is much slower on the machine to grind up to sort of running speed during the day is always is always seems to be slow. Nine manager was shot at tenny pace. We did we did.

She played as a policewoman in total total. And I think it's a false memory. I think this is true. I was taking this aged about six. We're in Germany at the time and She had a line in the play. Mister toad is in the dock some crime or other anyway. She was was playing police when she was the witness and the line she had was. I think the lawyer or something says to her. Can you tell me what he called you. And he called me fat face and the audience just fell about after. I didn't get the context job particularly but there's no afterwards like what is this. What is this magic maintenance? I liked I too. There's no way to disprove. That's sort of a true or false memory. It feels very real and I think there was something weird when this is this this is what is this man now and then because she did other place in other places like in Lagos Nigeria. Where we were? She didn't play there and we were naturally dragged along to go and see them and I just remember a little snippets of these. Some of these plays he did by spirit and I was just like wow and there were people that were involved in amateur dramatics. The stocks were reading. They did a really good really good. And I think that's where it Kinda began and and then I just knew us what I wanted to do. So I've always wanted to do and then drama school because my my dad was school in Aberdeen in Scotland. He he would have been. The first member of his family had the opportunity university but didn't take because he knew what he wanted to do. He had they fought. His father died in died when he was about eight and a and so was my grandmother and my dad and his siblings lived in in this small flattened in Aberdeen but he. He was bright and very talented as a sportsman and so he had the opportunity to go to university returned. Now I stay team too because you wanted to do which is flyer plans for the military apart from war service obviously but no career. It was a great traditional the financial and I think truthfully eight sixteen when I turn around and with my dad and said I wanted to be an actor he I think he instinctively understood. Dude subconsciously really understood. Because he didn't understand the world of actual he didn't he was sort of suspicious of scientists in Flouncy flouncy outfits. That's where he would sort of that was his baseline bows is just make on all but I think that constantly understood. What's he recognize himself in the sense on? You do said something very I want to do this and he said Oh you committed you said yeah okay then also. I wasn't expecting that so then but there was still a sort of a bump in the road because there was an expectation expectation about. I should go to university so I sort of capitulated and went went to London. University study languages drama. which truthfully I had a great? I thought you were going to say you didn't do no bull not because of the modern languages because he was so much fun. Actually I go through out of university. We strangely raw rubber Provo. When did you get through train out quietly? The university I started to audition for drama schools. Pay The twenty quid. must've that together but working evenings not audition for an essential in Atlanta and the day. I got a boat from land with an acceptance letter day. Go Chuck Todd Bizarre Day.

Strong school on the sly to start the next September bringing amount and the the professor. He's down some of me and he said you basically didn't turn a tough times twenty one seven and one of them so I have no choice but to send you down which I think is really policy to say this inaugural Cambridge nine okay. Well I'm going to land anyway so much and he was. You could see the color he was expecting this. This weird pollen trip never came because I was just okay. I'm out things were basically Often University that's great now. I spoke to another actor who said it took him his first degree to realize that it wasn't what he wanted to do to then go and Ramos himself and the drama school. But it's also interesting. What you said about your dad and how? He didn't quite understand acting but he recognized that same passion in you because I think that for my dad. He does not understand industry tool but he was so passionate about flying the I could relate to them on that level. I think that's exactly it. It gets completely completely subconscious. It wasn't a conscious thing Messiah. My Dad's is I mean he's now he's now is known but he identity they get some infanticide these very linear. You know it's things in black and white very linear a and and I think it was it was was it was yeah. It was an understanding.

A Romantic Revival
"For the purposes of maintaining their confidentiality names and some identifiable characteristics have been removed but their your voices and their stories are real a couple four a romantic revival. I became an instant parent when I got married. Four to two loss. Birth months to suicide My first wife took her life on Saint Patrick's Day a twenty one year later we met and And we've been picking up the pieces. This next couple has confronted death in their midst for the past six years disadvant- has been at the center of their family life over the now six years that I've been in their lives not survival mode. It has been the most hurt wrecking profound experience of weather my entire life. I they are now ready to live again. As a New Year's resolution the couple apple chose a word for themselves an espionage revive and I have a sense that Dick. She came to work with me so that together. They can transition from not dead to alive and from survival to revival this is where should we begin with Alistair Brown. She's not like anyone I've ever met. Which is why I knew I needed to get a ring pretty quick? I thought if I don't someone else's can sweep her off her feet when you say she's not like anyone you've ever meant well the depth the types the things that she that stir her her heart and her soul. It's refreshing. That's what drew me. Tour was her ability to go there to take you to take me there. It's caused some friction along the way because it's tough to learn when you haven't grown you to it doesn't come natural to you to me right. And so there's there's been times where she has talked about wanting to connect deeper or go deeper and I'm thinking we already are. This is suspect more connected than I've ever been before And so in that sense there's some difficulties. What other important part of your lives? Do I need to know who I guess. One of the reasons. We've come is the the long arduous journey after a suicide and the impact that that's had on me and on the kids he's been gone a lot through the years with the military just knowing that I've missed a lot of things and Hamilton family histories is an interesting one Mom and dad divorced when I was two years old and they both got remarried and had kids and so I kind of bounced between the two. The two families and my stepmother was not particularly wonderful. Stepmother have Was Not a very nurturing person. And the understatement. Yes she she was. She wasn't a good person. You know She was very manipulative. She was verbally abusive and a couple times physically and then after they divorced. My Dad a had custody of me instead of my mom. So come The simple terms that I was told that I went with my dad was because she he wasn't ready to settle down and he was. There's a lot that's probably buried in that statement and and I haven't really wanted to know the why theme of children that are abandoned by their mother. uh-huh runs through generations fair Nice we have saying she wasn't ready to settle. Now you were and children you think were abandoned by their mother. Oh sure when she then by suicide absolutely. How do you think your experience with your mom translates leads into what goes on between you and your kids? vis-a-vis them I don't know that there was was a deep attachment with my mom. I might have got that up until the age of two but I don't remember that and then the stories I've heard with my step mom as as a three year old when she came into my life. My Aunt said she remembers seeing me. Try to crawl up and my stepmother's lap and you know pushing me away and so I had that being pushed away from her and then my mom just wasn't there for the first I know from age two to six probably so there's a gap there That I don't really remember much time with her. And we have two kinds of memory. We have explicit memory and implicit memory and explicit memories kind of conscious awareness of Thaksin but implicit awareness and implicit memory. Lives in our body and the body remembers the value remembers particularly when you try to get close to your wife. You connect those dots. You probably have. It's so clear. Same say more. I think that's the root of a lot is what happened with his mom and step mum the root of a lot of what disconnection between us for a while. I thought it was what happened. Happened with his former wife. But then the more I learned was kind of a like. Oh this isn't it just continued eared through her. He couldn't trust his own mother but the mother figure in his his stepmother so he built up a wall law. And I'm not going to trust or or be confident in pursuit of me Secure knowing that it's not gonNA be a rejection. I think sometimes I I struggle with coming in to the level of connection that she's she's desiring not out of fear but simply out of not down on what you're talking about. It's almost like speaking a different language. Have a a good example. If I'm upset to me the natural sponges come in and hug me like comfort me or and it's he just stands Alexa me stairs. Feels like where I want connection. There's no movement you freeze. I do freezing reason those situations but It's not a fear it's not feeling that's what freezing okay. ohka tracking the brain's response to trauma. We are often familiar with fight and flight. But we also have freeze and sometimes it seems to me that a freeze points to an even more overwhelming set of experiences winces that way just simply too much to absorb and left the person frozen helpless and in a state of terror

Labor party lambasted the weekends Johnson accusing him of riding roughshod over the constitution in order to crash Britain out of the EU without a deal widely considered to be Johnson's preferred outcome changing the government would not be simple a no confidence vote would would spark a fourteen day period in which Johnson could try to overturn the result. If he failed there would be a general election The pounds today touched its lowest level against the dollar since one thousand nine hundred eighty five as international investors fret over a political showdown over brexit this week the British currency fellas low as one dollar and nineteen cents down almost ascent on the day before aw recovering somewhat to one dollars twenty the pound has become the main indicator of international investors confidence in Britain's economy.

Alistair Bathgate Alistair, Founder And US discussed on Financial Issues
"Now, let's turn to our next guest and joining us in the studio. We've got blue presumes C E O and founder Alistair Bathgate Alistair, welcome. So we've heard this morning that blue prison is buying Tony for a consideration of up to eighty million pounds of British tech firm. You released your half year earnings this morning as well reporting, a thirty four million pound loss in EBay, da, that said sales, and revenue climbs. Now analysts were expecting as much with Marion global investors saying that blue prism. You're an automation software maker could remain a high growth business for many years. So growth is one thing profitability is another Alistair. When do you expect to become profitable? Well at the moment, we see a vast global market, and we're expanding in a whole range of territories and that requires investment in mocks in an insane. I'm not comes in revenues. So this is a great British global expansion story as you say revenues up by eighty two percent possibly US, revenues doubled. We secure at three hundred forty nine new customers, and which means customer base has gone up by a third in just six months. So this is a rapid growth story. And for the moment, we feel that investing in growth is thing to do, but you have been around for quite some time, and I suppose, that's why the questions although bound for feasibility. I mean I'd love to know what you think is going to help potentially drive the turnaround in profits. Ability, I noticed expanding in new countries. And so how do you. You, how'd you basically turn turn that story around him and you've been around for more than a decade now where we know we have a fundamentally a profitable business model. We were profitable in the year before we I appeared on one of the reasons that we went public with today's funds to grow and to invest ahead of that growth, as you can imagine when you went to a new temporary. Let's say the Middle East where we have recently you have to make investments in marketing and people in sales. People also we have to make investments in product as well ahead of that growth coming back. So that's the story of why and how we invest in right now. Yeah, the acquisition of full Ptolemy announced this morning and tell us the rationale behind that is that because you're concerned that you're not going to be able to achieve that profitability through Ganic growth known of has been a partner since twenty fifteen. The product that Bill is based on technology is built on the platform. So it's a very logical acquisition for us, what they've created as a off an intelligent, automation platform based prison, plus other technologies combined. They've turned into a software as a service cloud, offering based on Microsoft has a not is particularly suited to the mid tier. And so this is a new product for us. Okay. So that's the autonomy acquisition. The is also an issue around. Around short interest in prison. When you look at the amount that you have route edgy mentioned that, that you are. You've run a two thousand two hundred percents. This thing is a huge rise, but short interest in prison has actually climbed above five percent in the past month, what he make that I think, when you were highly wretched stock as you say, the people will bet on some volatility on, you know, you just have to live with that went on building a short term, shot price hair. We're trying to build a business for the long term. Those show interest, though, did reach a record last month. So what would you say to convince those that may be on just simply betting on volatility, but actually have concerns around the stock? What would you have to convince them again back to this issue of the lack of profitability? I would say, look at the graph look at the figures look at the growth in revenues look at the growth in customers these three hundred and forty-nine new customers have valid that toes in the water and we've got so many of our customer base at the early stages of adoption and then look attention on manuals rights renews, extraordinarily high, and then look, up selling a stars, and that have very strong as well. This is an engine built for growth and global growth. And so our choice to invest and go underwater on the line because we think it's going to generate gripe for the future. But some point we can get uptight off on investment, and very quickly, when the company will become a customer from profitable also, very interesting, of course, because your UK gray story, not just a u k one not actually a London based company, but base in the north of England in Warrington tapping into a university of Manchester university. So with that in mind, you're not basis, Silicon Valley, although your tech firm, how'd you see Brexit at this stage? What does that mean in terms of bringing on new people? So proud of you obviously coming from the north west of England monkey union university as where the computer was invented. And so. Yeah. I bullish sorry. Thank you so much for joining us that was pretty prism, CEO, and founder, Alison
