Fresh update on "banerjee" discussed on The Children's Hour

"Scream screen time is animal farm from their cd. We are one and before that you heard. Secret agent twenty. Three skidoo from his cd called the perfect quirk with caught in the screen. I'm katie stone. You're listening to the children's hour. We're thinking about screens and some people use their screens to listen to podcasts. And certainly some of our children's our listeners know that this show becomes a podcast every week that you can listen to on demand. We're coming up on the show. We're going to meet with the team behind the res- podcast. You can learn more about it by going to join the res- dot com. It's more than a podcast. Actually it's a comic and a website. It's produced in the united kingdom distributed everywhere. And it's a sci fi adventure set into the future and the kids of the future. Contact the kids of today in the story line and we won't give you too many spoilers but with us on the show. Today is martin spinelli. He's a youth media and podcasting expert. And he's the executive producer and one of the writers of the res- and we're joined by robin banerjee. Who is the head of psychology. And he's called the professor of kindness at the university of sussex. He is an expert in children's mental health and media and is the being consultant on the rez. So it's great to have you with us ty hey how you doing well. The kids have a lot of questions for you. Let's start with illuminata. Where did you get the idea for. Res- right so lance dan who's my creative and research partner here in england at another university We just finished writing a a really big and important book. The first book. Its kind about podcasting. When that book came out lance and i started putting our heads together to think about what the next thing we we're gonna do is what the next project was going to be. And at that moment in time it was about four or five years ago in britain but also in the rest of the developing world. There was this huge spike in mental health problems and issues. Concerning young people. Young people were describing their lives. As more and more stressed there was more and more anxiety. There were more and more compulsive behaviors in eating and all kinds of things that young people were wrestling with in a way that they had never wrestled with before in the history of childhood and lance. And i thought well you know we have this problem and it's a problem. That was touching our own lives. We we knew people who were dealing with anxiety and depression so we put our heads together. We decided to actually make a podcast and a comic book that might have a positive impact. Might do some small little thing to try and make the situation better so when we decided we were going to do that. I reached out to robyn who is at my university where we're both at the university of sussex and we started talking about kindness so we had some meetings with robin and he shared with his research on the way kids generally values from the media they consume and and what those values due to their wellbeing and we rolled that into the story of the res- dr banerjee you study kindness and increasing kindness in the world and does media like the res- how does that play a role in increasing kindness in the world. I think media like the rats can be really powerful because stories mean a lot to us right. We identify with characters. They mean something to us. They remind us of people in our own lives all they might be introducing us to kind of people that we've never encountered before but they're human. That's the key thing. And we learn from their experiences and importantly they also trigger empathy like that that feeling of walking in someone else's shoes seeing the world from a through someone else's is you know And one of the big things about doing that is that it enables you to share other people's feelings to understand where they're coming from to see that the way that they see the world is not the same as a way that i see the world and we learn from that and if we care about what's happening with the characters that actually fosters the new way of interacting with each other and that's why books some stories and media duress can't be powerful. One of the biggest ingredients for wellbeing is the kindness that builds relationships. So it's all about kindness that connects us with each other. Let's face it right when you want to hang out with someone who the kids that you want to hang out with. They're going to be the kids. That are nice. That are kind right. This is not rocket science. We wanna be around people who kind and that's what enables us to have positive relationships and that's what enables us to feel good about ourselves and about the people around us so it's about having the right kind of media which kind of fosters that kind of understanding what types of media are healthier for kids. What are some. that aren't so healthy and why. That's a really great question. evan. I think we see the whole range of media on tv on the internet. All of those kinds of things. They have such variety don't they. Some of them will be ones which a gassed focused on the appearance. The materialism having the right stuff looking in the right way. Those are the kinds of things which can sometimes really undermined. They can't get in the way of our relationships because what they're telling you is that actually this isn't really about relationships when the reality is it's the relationships that matter the most so the ones that i think a really important. No things that you see on the media really important things that make you think about people that make you ask questions about each other that make you want to take the perspective of someone else. You know what. I mean when i take perspective to see the world through there is those are the kinds of things that really make a difference on media. What is psychologically. What is kindness while you know what. It's like what i was saying. Colbert this is. What are those things that feels like. It should be really simple because we know what it's like when someone's being kind to us right. We know what it feels like. Bu- actually pinning down. What really is involved. I think is a really important question. I'm gonna say this to cool. Bet i'm going to say it as a behavior for shaw behavior part of it which is how is someone actually acting right so it might be giving someone something helping someone comforting someone all of those kinds of things right so there's a behavior which is basically providing something beneficial to another person but i'm gonna say the second part is really important as well and that is what is the motivation that lies underneath the behavior and for kindness to really be kindness. There has to be a motivation to actually want to help that person to want to be kind right to want to get some done something to help them. Feel bad or to make some improvement in their life. Because you have you ever been on the receiving end of someone doing something which kind of like the behavior seems kind but when you think about it just doesn't feel very kind because i'm not. I know i know they're not doing it. Actually thinking of me that thinking about something else maybe maybe they just wanna look good or they're doing it because they feel that they have to or they're doing it because they think that something else is going to be good for them you know and in that situation i would say. Hang on a second. Are we really talking about kindness there so i would say kobe. You've got to look at the behavior and.

This story continues. You know this kind of creating interest feeding directly into the creation of a middle class elite in india and it's very very important traits these for example in calcutta which is already you know gaining importance as a second city of the british empire it is the capital city for the british in india in in their indian buyers whale it does happening in bombay beach used to be up authenticity end then turns into Is given to the british during the seventeenth century as a result of a marriage that space between the british king and border sprint princes. And again there you know. The connection is between the small minority croup called the bar sees so. For example the data multinational company that is a unit headed by bossi family zoroastrians who had at some point migrated from iran into india. Right in madrassa smell. it is trade connections. It does this kind of close relationship with imperial baba's that brings to the fore particularly group of who also start essentially figuring out where they stand in this hierarchy. So why are they are doing a lot of things with the british in tooting trade and not romantic relationships. At the same time they start redefining. What their own practices of religion might look like and in this they come into constant clashes with missionaries who want to spread the word of god who want to have conversion practices conversion drives happening in all of this sports at again eighteen thirteen month. Three is isman. The charter of the company to trade in india is renewed and for the very first time both free trade is allowed meeting the monopoly of these companies taken it unto missionaries allowed to preach all over this regions which rich were not before eighteen thirteen. So between seventeen fifty seven and eighteen. Thirteen if you to take a ship from england to india and if you put down in the ships registered that your occupation was evangelism or being a missionary would not be allowed to get down in gathered. You would have to go up river and find one of the other french or danish. Dutch colonies embark can. But what i'm trying to say here is that is this group which is beginning to have a new say in indian social and political and religious life one because they have the financial power to do it. This is age of indian entrepreneurs do because they have in order to they have to in order to have the preeminence in their own societies. Perform a particular kind of orthodox you know believe in rituals and dried zero religions and three because even with all of the enlightenment that is very slowly coming into india. There is a new class of people that the british need so for example for the entire population of india for thirty three million there are only about two hundred fifty thousand british officials very that the ratio is completely unbalanced. As as you can imagine they have a very strong standing on me..

"Rowling's. This is the big story dr yet. Tina banerjee is an assistant professor at mcgill university and the school of population and global health. She's an expert in global and public health equity as well as social justice. Hello dr benedict hydrated. Thanks for having me on this show. Oh you're so welcome. Thank you for your expertise today. Do you want to start maybe Giving us perspective. I think from outside. Canada from an equity point of view on when we worry about our vaccine wrote in canada. How are we doing compared to everyone else so as canadians. We need to be very grateful that more than fifty percent of our population has received the first fox nation. And that is extremely high when you compare it to low middle income countries if you are living in high income countries such as canada the likelihood is that you have already got your cove in nineteen vaccine or will soon get one sadly this is not the reality for millions of people living in several low and middle income countries more than half a billion vaccine doses have been administered so far guess what three quarters of them have been used by the world's richest countries which means that only zero point one percent of covid nineteen vaccine does have been administered in low income countries. And at this rate in might take many years for low middle income countries to reach a high level vaccine coverage

The back input talked about are in the version. This is not about finding something new he got for us at the end is a journey and the journey is to offer offer real value. And that's where he talked about is from the very beginning in. It's very important to be pure doing new things warning but it's all about adding value and that's the part where he really talked about is. Is there somebody. Businesses percentage of the world needs this. And they're ready to pay for it. Is there a social need. That will change the world and because of that time would be saved. Things would happen faster. Because it's clear tangible benefit that people realize and it gets to a pnl overtime. The second team also was really fascinating. Was that first thing he talked about is how we get. There is based on the size of the organization. Really works for every organization is what he talked about the big back which is critical view and to me.

And there'd be nobody who had no human beings work in the mining thirty creative or commission work at amy and i'm proud fastball to to to answers and a it and assist english couple right and essentially we take the word of physics around us right and the physics east can be knobbly stokes equations in fluids. It floyd is a second order partial differential equation. This is how i say the boundary condition. This is how the the fluids slow will happen. What he league. That equation is fundamental. That is the law physics right and obviously obvious three. These are the laws of what lead to at nc since to take equations and solve them medical and essentially even set it up and newbridge grid points. Saudi radically over. I mean if you could assign a grade. Points is more accurate if you also get points. Less accurate runs fast. So essentially at we have fluid physics and fluid simulation we have structure phys psych element non-system structure we have lichter magnetic maximum questions. Do finally all so we have is now a wanted to have company. We have amazingly accurate simulation software in different physics. So now i land in there. I said watch next lances right and so i'm just giving you had a thought right. The fisher is not just single for the future is multi physics of fluids interacting with structure structures correcting with letterman.

"Significant impact of the way. So that's the parkway what. I really connect on this. Is how rapidly you evolved from. The journey of only discovery could taking the discovery beyond real impact. And the moment you play in real impact ideas that openly judged based on the value. There's a difference as between a billion dollars and tokyo quad. Needs both so one thing. I just want to look at is something. Very unique is from your days to being a student being a leader in academics successful startups and now offered leadership this this sport snow brand of critique and the team that is very unique about his in every phase you have self innovated very rapidly and just to put on the sport. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to get to that innovation. You've already done that three times. And i look at academics to stock up in becker and stocked up. What you're doing now is mega impact. So the whole question is how does bu this big innovations how do you self innovate. How accelerate that fast and make an impact. Actually thank you for doing this. Any you are being very very nine.

I got my phd and join university as a professor as an assistant progress. And at that time. And i spent a dozen yes roy. Eight six hundred seventy knocked western.

Gaurav Afore Discusses Pre Seed Investing

"Grab welcome to the show. Thank you for having me your the co founder of a four capital which is an early stage investment company. What was the thesis when you started a four. Yeah so both. My co-founder automates banerjee have been investing in venture now for almost nine years. And we were both. I was at a fund Fund and one of the things we've noticed in the kind of four years these funds. Is that the goal posts for early. Stage founders shifting. So if you were trying to raise your first million to a million dollars pre product market fit. When you have little dune attraction. It was getting harder and harder to raise capital not from angels and scouts through definitely been obvious explosion of that which is great for the ecosystem but none of those investors usually lead the route. So if you were to go to a seed fund Fund for them to lead around price terms so on and so forth they were very often telling founders. Like i like what you're doing. I like your background but you're too early for us. Go get some traction go. Bill the A little bit more than we can invest so we saw this firsthand and we said allow there is a problem. There's a gap there because a personally just from our passion. It's like we love getting involved very early. In love helping founders. But we think there's a problem here to be solved so typical founders. When you see a problem and nobody solving it the best way to solve it is to go. Go after yourself. So my partner adamantly denied we left our previous funds and middle twenty sixteen we raise our first fund in the fall and the rest is history if you go back before that you were an early product manager for android. What was it like being google in the early days of android is a lot of fun like looking back. Obviously come a long way when i joined android in two thousand nine. It was like a skunkworks kind of projects on the side. I mean look at google building massive business right in an online ads in the early two thousands but it was pretty clear by. Oh seven ole that mobile was going to be the future not desktop so from google. It mobile was a potential existential threat. Right if apple was the dominant you know or the way that most people accessed mobile if that was apple or the carriers right if reisen etc like the own the customer relationship. That will be very problematic for google right. Because the reason google's been able to really flourishes. There is no sort of toll booth if you may for the internet and anybody can spend up a website and you can start to make money directly with consumers but mobile was potentially to be a different dynamic so when i joined android it doesn't nine. We essentially had a blank cheque right from the management at a google. Say look this is potentially going to be existential for the business. We need a horse in the race. Right we need to have something where we can compete with apple and have a dominant position or or at least one of tour to three key players so that was intended to mandate orchid blackberry.

Which is where frankly a lot of the investors that are in invested in or. We're leaving our but if you're buying in now at valuations i mean i just don't see how that's gonna work out of. You might still a long time. Yup and so my my answer to this question is just to be different. Because i probably would have said gee. Lx too but Just to be different. What i would be looking at is. Because i'm getting in late because these valuations are big because i need to get out probably at three or four billion. The reality is none of these teams have traded hands. Yeah threat like there's no comparables there's no we don't really know what any of these things are worth today because none of them have traded hands I would i would be looking at is which team has the lowest burn rate and is operating most cost effectively with the idea that it needs to survive the next five to ten years for me to see sort of that big home. Run kind of return So i'd be looking at which which team is is controlling their burn and spending sort of very sniper shot versus just sort of burning through investor cash at a prodigious rate and expecting that the keep raising over the next five to ten years. So i would be looking at who's closest to profitability really. That would be my pick and know on this list who is could be. Tsm but couldn't maybe it's not. I can tell you almost for sure.

Big Oil pivots to renewables, but will it last?

"Corona virus outbreak is costing big oil big billions. The latest numbers BP reduced asset values by seventeen point five, billion royal. Dutch Shell says oil and gas assets are down twenty, two billion. And now, big oil companies are investing billions into wait for it renewable energy. Is Kobe nineteenth speeding up the renewable energy transition? Nicholas Kuznits writes about energy transfer inside climate news. Hi, Nicholas. Welcome to climate cast. Hi thanks for having me. Let's start with big oil's latest numbers. Give us a number that stands out to you and tell us what it means. There is one that I'd point to. That isn't necessarily the largest, but the French company totale said that it was cutting the value of its Canadian oil sands assets by seven billion dollars. So this stands out I think because it was basically entirely due to climate change really or to what too tall sees as the long term trend in governments acting to rein in emissions and clamped down on fossil fuel production. Let's talk about the Tar Sands Oil why are there impacts unique for climate? Change and why are they at risk now? So the Canadian tar sands oil sands is a huge store of oil in Alberta and it takes a lot of energy to convert it into a like a crude oils essentially that you can send a pipeline and because it takes Banerjee, there's also a lot of emissions associated with that. So it's dirtier form of oil than your average crude and in particular because of this and because of the Keystone Excel pipeline. Climate activists, kind of latched onto the oil sands as an embodiment of the problem of the type of oil that we need to leave in the ground if we're going to address climate change

The Hidden Forces Behind Stocks' Sharp Fall

"When news of the corona virus. I broke late last year and early. This year investors mostly shrugged it off but when the number of cases surged outside of China early this week in countries like South Korea Italy and Iran market volatility came roaring back. There were worries. The epidemic could hurt global supply chains shut businesses and curtail travel. Today there was another massive sell-off the Dow Jones industrials tumbled one thousand one hundred ninety points that puts the Dow in correction territory more than ten percent below. Its recent high but aside from fears over the virus there are other forces technical factors that are exacerbating. Thanks joining us is the Wall Street. Journal's Gun Banerjee go engine tell us what's behind these wild market swings short so the Krona virus was certainly the main catalyst for this huge selloff. We've seen in markets but what I've been hearing from. Traders and investors is that there were these technical factors at play such as option strategies and other trading tactics that rely on volatility to make buying and selling decisions. And what I've been hearing is that this actually contributed to the volatility that we saw. Perhaps you've been exacerbated it. How do strategies like options trading work? How'd you traders employ them sure? So options trading has surged in recent years Especially as yields in markets have stayed Super Low. So people have tried to just get worn more creative in terms of how juice returns and options is one way they've been doing that. That's made options positioning one thing that investors track to try to get a sense of where markets might go next and for clues on potential shifts in market sentiment. I'm so what we saw on display here. This week is that something called Short Gamma positioning was on display. Short Gamma positioning. What is that when you have short gamma positioning what happens is traders sometimes have to sell futures as markets go down and they have to buy as markets go up so that can make moves in either direction more violent. Isn't that sort of counterintuitive? That's isn't that the opposite of the way it's supposed to work. It's it's the opposite of the way it has tended to work in recent years. So that's why investors were pointing it out this week. Monday and Tuesday combined to be the worst two day point drop in the history of the Dow Jones industrial something like nineteen hundred points. How much of the selling do experts say was tied to options hedging based on this market volatility? One estimate I saw said that more than a hundred billion dollars worth of selling happened because of this options hedging activity and also other trading strategies like volatility control funds that tend to make buying and selling decisions solely based on the level of volatility and market so as volatility jumps. They'll start selling so it kind of becomes a self prophecy and markets. Tell US exactly. What hedging is. It's sort of protective. Isn't it sure? So so what happens is if I'm an investor and I go out to buy option contract as a hedge on my portfolio. Someone needs to take the other side of that trade and sell me the option contract an activity that they might do on the other side of that to maintain kind of a neutral exposure to the market. That's the hedging that can contribute to the volatility that we saw this week grunion. How much longer could this options activity? Continue is the volatility likely to continue as long as the uncertainty over. The Corona virus continues. What do traders say traders have been saying that this volatility is definitely going to continue in the near term and we saw that in options activity. This week you saw people buying options that would pay out of volatility remained high even in the next few months but in terms of whether or not this type of hedging activity could contribute to that I think that's unclear when I was talking to people yesterday. Certainly they were saying we think this dynamic will continue to play out over the next few days We'll see

Chicago Woman Is Second Patient in U.S. With Wuhan Coronavirus - What is the Impact on Markets?

"Second case of the Corona virus was confirmed today in Chicago. It involves a woman in her sixties who had travelled to the Chinese city of Wuhan where the outbreak began. Chicago's health. Commissioner says. The woman has been isolated in a hospital and is doing doing well. Meanwhile the virus continues to spread in China the state run broadcaster now reports twenty six deaths and at least eight hundred eighty one confirmed cases cases authorities or canceling large public gatherings and locking down cities. The outbreak is also rattling markets here in the US and abroad. Some are predicting it could have an even bigger economic impact than the two thousand three SARS outbreak joining me now with more on this Wall Street Journal markets reporter Gudgeon Banerjee Gene so gun. It's still relatively early and to this outbreak but how our economy is feeling about the potential impact of the corona virus on China's economy. Especially especially that it's hitting during the Lunar New Year celebrations sure so investors and economists are closely watching how this mysterious pneumonia causing virus will impact act the economy and even stock markets. It is too soon to tell but there is a worry that the sickness could spread and hurt areas like transportation shopping business meetings and therefore ended up crimping economic growth for example this week luxury retailers travel companies and casino stocks were hit by news of the virus what about consumer consumer spending and the impact there especially as we head into the Lunar New Year holiday which formerly begins today on Friday. Does this outbreak complicate any other headwinds ends. We've been seeing in the Chinese economy. That's a really good question. The timing of this outbreak is important with China. Entering one of its busiest travel periods of the year heading into the Lunar New Year holiday the Chinese consumer is really important to the global economy and the Lunar New Year is the busiest travel season and the world's largest annual human migration Chretien so millions of Chinese travelers are estimated to visit families or go on vacation during the holiday but even before all of this. The outlook for economic growth in China China was a little bit cloudy. Chinese officials recently said the country capped off twenty nine thousand nine with an official economic growth of six point one percent so that was within the government's target but also the lowest level in nearly three decades we've also been reporting that. US businesses and just reminder listeners. There now now to confirmed cases here in the US US businesses. Operating in China are taking steps to mitigate the impact and you found. They're also facing some questions from consumers and investors esters exactly so the Chinese consumer is really important to the global economy and Walt Disney recently said that it would temporarily close its park in Shanghai. Starting Saturday and McDonald's said that it closed doors and parts of China and some cities that had suspended public transportation. So China is one of McDonald's largest foreign markets. And I've been tracking corporate earnings as they trickle in this week and just yesterday proctor and gamble executives said that they're monitoring the virus and they also said that it could affect consumer confidence in large parts of the market because it can affect travel which also affects proctor and gamble's business us now. This particular outbreak of the corona virus is also drawing comparisons to the SARS outbreak even though it's currently believed to be a milder illness but SARS did to have a substantial impact on the Chinese economy right. The SARS outbreak did weigh on China's economy at the time and again. It's still a little bit tough to tell what impact this virus this will have on the Chinese economy or the world economy but previous outbreaks. Like those of SARS or Ebola in two thousand fourteen suggests that markets tend to see short-term turbulence but can bounce back pretty quickly for example stock indexes in mainland China and Hong Kong saw double digit percentage drops after SARS before bouncing back all right Wall Street Journal reporter Engine Banerjee joining me here in our studio in New York.

"A few miles. North of Edinburgh's Old Town on the coast of the birth of fourth. You'll you'll find historic port of leaf. Area was made up of several medieval settlements which by eighteen thirty three had grown into a burr and in nineteen twenty that Burr was merged into editor. Lee has quite the history. It was Scotland's main ports of trade and was the final stopping point of the Royal Yacht Britannia. And if that doesn't ring a bell maybe this will choose good health look cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments choose. I just thought it was the site of the old leaf station. Gave Birth to the title of Irvine. Welsh's novel trainspotting. Lead has more recently become one of Scotland's hottest food destinations traditional pubs fantastic food markets. Lead has something and for everyone and feeling a little more fancy. It's worth mentioning that. It's also home to a handful of Mitchum starred restaurants Scottish menswear menswear designer was born and bred in Edinburgh and today overlooking the water of Leith. You'll find his flagship store at custom lane is also casting and his wife. Gemma brand directive cast in hair call home leaf for us as a really lead by area. And it's a really good sense of a creative community that doesn't really exist elsewhere. In Edinburgh on I think that there is a level All of collaborative economy in customs. Wharf where you've got lots of different studios from lots of different disciplines which we can tap into which is really important for us. We've got photographers before graphic designers. There's jewelry makers architects so it makes for a really interesting dates day experience and you get pulled into lots of different projects acts that can enrich the whole the whole vibe so from a food. Point of view was really pioneering particularly within the high level Mitchell and star level with them. Food Leaf has always had sort of. It'd be more Mitchell and stars in any square mile in the country than it has been previously ICU with Castanon Jr and and to get the inside Info on leads top food and drink hot spots. And we're better place to start with breakfast. I think for for me it it's an everyday Place to go but definitely Bros bagels. I think on lethal walk. They they've been around nine maybe about a year. They've saw set themselves up at the sleepwalk which is really been a pretty bold move because it's been quite a kind of color full area going in there one of the first progressive food retailers really going. Mr They've always got a selection of probably maybe about ten different types of beagles. The E can pick from with all their different fillings. And it just delivers every time. Yeah you know. If you've AH ten minutes to get Beagle have not about better. Yeah Okay and then I wanNA smoke lunch. Where you'RE GONNA IF WE'RE GONNA quickly to nip how we probably we probably and Commons? They have an amazing onsite bakery. So it's always smells great and the sourdough bread is perfect and you can pick up. Take your breakfast I the next day. They do really good who pastries and sandwiches and soups. But if we're taking clients I there's some place called the shore which is an old school leaf beef establishment. It's slightly art deco inside. It's a really beautiful bar and kind of smooth mirrors and then you can have a really nice. Does beautiful fish sughrue fish restaurants along along. The waterfront starts with fishers. And then there's the shore and ship and kings wore when they're they're all really really great fish restaurants fishing japes leaf has got one of the best fish and chip restaurants in probably Scotland. It's called the new haven fish market on generally at key there for an hour in the summer chips and then coming into dinnertime. Where would you go for more laid back than a little favor of ours? The shafts are young. There's a love entrepreneurial. Young shafts are delivering amazing modern Scottish cuisine and I think they do a lot foraging. They've got low bar and quite often. When you're walkin there you can see what Lebron foraging origin? Four place on the bar. It's a really nice intimate experience. Bara is another one. That's literally just over. The water are really dynamic. Husband and wife you who they just you know when you can tell them their heart and soul into it and it's nice to go somewhere has set many but that it doesn't feel stuffy. There's new white tablecloths but there's really nice are on the walls there's good music play is a good atmosphere and the feed is really exciting. And it's actually very good value for money shifts would come from the Martin wishaw Autom- kitchen the training of these places. All they've been you know the Venus Scandinavia and working with or come back to you know. Add Marin started up their own restaurants in in small affordable places in Iran leaf. And I suppose that's the great thing about leaf it's been you know affordable for people to come in and and whether it's startups in in restaurants or in menswear or whatever is given a home in an incubator to showcase the best of en route can do do and then once you've lied to stomachs going get some drinks. Let's start off maybe with just sort of an old fashioned goodall pint buys your a favorite baiser Lee is really good for old fashioned boozers. And it's almost like the fish restaurants that this run along the waterfront nobles is probably one of the most famous ones. It's probably got some real stories to tell the history of the years you know particularly when the sailors were coming in here to darker think There's been in a few few stories told in some of these boozers. Sophie's another great boozer rose. Leaf is a is kind of almost I suppose our our local. Um I'm who also do great great from pub food the dreadnought is also quite like going to the treading on when we moved up here. I find it difficult to find a proper purpose. That wasn't just an old man's Poppin dreadnought really laid back by an which we really like clearly has a low competition your favorite boozers. If you want a glass of wine where you're GONNA go. I really liked the shore. Just feels I think. Because it's quite art deco in there and it's it's very atmospheric. It just feels really relaxed taxed. That's probably for me my favorite for glass of wine. You know some of the good restaurants like the Chop House of Great Barr beside them which is maybe a little bit more like a wine bar or kitchen kitchen restaurant and bar there as well? It's worth mentioning that you don't fancy the key see for a Bagel or dressing up for Mitcham Star. Dinner lethal also has a pretty spectacular food market called the pit and was never really had a kind of food market is such so started in effectively car park in with a garage next door to a and a couple of guys who had trucks maybe had restaurants and tyrone came down and just started up doing great food at really good prices and and then live music then started up by people guitars or saying kind of spawned into whole whole kind of music program and you know many better places for people to go in on a on a Saturday in the pit and the monarchial Cairn Banerjee and what better way to play now than with the track by Scottish music legends the proclaim.

Some of this information and start making their a happier place for themselves. I would encourage them to as soon as they get home tonight look around and if anything that they're I lands on that makes them feel frustrated could be. I mean, oftentimes eater, wait, what if it's a teacher? Okay. I can't actually help with the actual humans who are living in the house. But if they if they walk in and the first may see is the consultation is full junk mail and just kind of irritates him immediately, scoop it up, put into the recycle bin, like just take one a one minute ten minutes max, and move something in your house that needs to be moved either to the recycle bin or it needs to be dusted, or you need to change a light bulb like the little, the low hanging fruit, do one little thing like that and that it'll shift Banerjee in the house, and then you can do the next thing and the next thing, and that will take you down that road to having that happy home that's working for you not against you.

"One of the most crucial things every entrepreneur will have to do is knowing when they have a good idea on their hands. An idea that's worth implementing and seeing through. It's so important to know that the marketplace that other people want to buy your product or service, and it's not just you who thinks that this idea is wonderful. You can't be the only customer. It's also really important to find out if this ideas worth pursuing early on before you start investing a ton of money and time and resources. You only double down on ideas that will work. So in today's guests teacher lesson, Jeep energy's gonna share with you how he has done this in the past, how he's done this with his other businesses. When he succeeded, when he's failed, also be sharing my takeaways in my take on this topic at the end of the lesson. But for now I'm gonna pass it onto Jeet so he can share with you his expertise. It away g hey, everybody g Banerjee here and today I'm going to be teaching how to find out whether or. Not your business idea is going to succeed or not. And the most important thing and the biggest lesson I think I'm gonna share from this is how to fail fast. And I think this is a very important concept that many entrepreneur struggle with, especially newer entrepreneurs. I think it many take a very long time before figuring out whether or not a business will work or not some end up taking years, and that's a lot of valuable time that you may spend on an idea that never has the roots for the the successful formula behind it to be successful. So I'm going to share with you guys, my personal strategy of how I figure out whether business ideas will work or not very quickly to give you guys a little bit of a background. I've launched over ten businesses myself. I've sold to companies for profit grown some while beyond my imagination, and also I've had my fair share of failures along the way. So I kind of bring both perspectives to the table and pretty much when I first started out as an entrepreneur body years ago. Now, one of the first things. Learned early on was that I had a ton of business ideas and concepts that I wanted to pursue. And I think this is very natural for entrepreneurs because we is entrepreneurs. We just think of all these days and all these things that we want to do. And the biggest thing that I learned was an idea that I necessarily thought was great, didn't always mean that other people thought it was amazing as well. Others didn't necessarily feel the same way about an idea like I did. And the biggest thing that I tell people is that just because you love your idea and your mom loves your idea, doesn't mean that the rest of the market in the world is going to feel the same way. So it would be extremely foolish to build out a massive platform. Let's say, spending tens of thousands of dollars.

"Jackie, I suppose there's a price that I learned through that and then not. So the flagship, then that's not everything you need on a trip, so it's what else do you? What are the other products? So the growth next year will be to some shirts, some of the products coming through and it's to to develop the collection. Many, I think I think we can to say, take some more shops and but I see is very much in organic thing. I mean by that is very different from my background in in clothing, because that's very seasonal sites. You design five, ten, how many jackets in one go, and then you reinvent the wheel or try to reinvent the wheel six months later often that doesn't happen because it's menswear sort, but he that works. But so for me, it's very much about one time really getting that right. And then and then moving on to the next product. So that's that's the direction it's going to. Meal comes down to the product, design, meaty. So I feel are coming in. So now work with political, Tina, who she's now managing your rations really and is essentially the backbone in the business. And that's allowing to concentrate more and more design in the creative creative side things. And I think for me, I feel growth is just ideas really, and so it's just kind of the more I can do that the more the The more. more hoping if I keep getting put us right then they will just continue to grow. But for me, it's just as simple as that. Really. That's what we have time for on today's show. Thanks very much to Ashley, what's for coming in and sharing the story of his brand.
