"Beyond the gate a path, running between a Laurel hedge and a Shaggy lawn on which there were some rabbit hutches, led to the front door and on round the corner of the house. Clive followed it because in his imagined house the door rotted from its hinges had been at the back. The compulsion of the imagined house was stronger than the disenchantment of what he saw, and it still seemed to him that if he went on, he would find the door of rotted from its hinges and make his way into that other house and go upstairs and read the text bordered with wheat and poppies. Meanwhile, the rational part of him continued to make the rational assertion that having come so far, it would be poor spirited to give up his intention just because the house turned out to be uninviting and rather pretentious with its lowering barge boards and oversized sash windows. Looking with sidelong distaste at one of these windows, he saw a boy, whose pale face was pressed to the glass, whose eyes were fixed on him. A moment later, the vision disappeared for the boy's breath had been released, and missed it over the pain. A skinny hand wiped the mist away, and the face looked out once more with the stare of a full moon, emerging from a cloud. As though the staring gaze had shown it to him, Clive saw what the boy was looking at. A stranger, carrying a bag. Of course, that was the answer. He smiled at the boy, who did not return his smile. And walked back to the front door. Mounted its pretentious steps and pulled the bell handle. He heard no footsteps, but presently the door opened, and the boy stood on the threshold. He looked to be about ten years old, very near the age of Clive's own son, but small for his age.

Where do i go for the solution. The i need doesn't even exist outlines and it and it's really hard because when you when you do all the marketing and you try to explain people have different you all the ways that we do it avala. Things live demonstrations on neck on the line. Showed me for what we can do differently. And the you know the what we've delivered we've got so many results that we can show people the we do across any type of process that it doesn't matter if it's simple or if it's complex we've actually I mentioned earlier about comb guests the utility company in brazil that is the most complex process ever delivered in any company today. Notice delivered anything across Roses that that handles so much of the process within customers and it's even doing cross selling up selling and servicing and support as well as during general admin for the accounts as well. So you know we know we can deliver it and we just want to be able to tell people what we do in a different way and that we can deliver in such a way within a short period.

Any white-cain incite. This is what we do. We were very confident about what we do. And what we deliver uncertain is is to tell people more about what we do. It was good. I think that in a as you said in a market is very competitive and also in a field. That is very new. You have companies who are now hearing about this understanding that there's value their understanding the could be opportunities to explore. But don't really understand where to start what to look for. You know an and how to go about doing so. That's kind of what we try and do is to is to bring not knowledge and not guidance through people like yourself companies like silver and others to try and help you know educate build knowledge so that when people do have the need their informs and they're able to Go into the market with a degree of non agenda. Also the expectations of of watson stall and also some connections and some some companies that are aware of that they can approach and so if people are interested if they want to more boss over now if they want to check out what you do if they want to reach out and explore some potential opportunities.

Very much for The question We could support any language. it's As i mentioned earlier it's really about making sure that we've got native speakers to support language such as hindi and We have the the sort of coal ones. We've got eight core languages that support majority as you could. You would expect across the world and if it's something that you want specifically for that particular market than we would do is we would have somebody who is native understands the structure of what we're doing and can build that road map in terms the scripting with the another We can deliver it so it's not something that we can't deliver it.

And that's one of the things that is a real value about what we're delivering is the if you have a change in your circumstances within the business or there's a strategy change or new product tour a new service we can deliver that really quickly As long as it takes us to create it on a on a a normal laptop we create for you know we have to do is then test.

The mismatch is really quickly. And we deploy the change to use dynamically so that when the was coming in. You don't get that mismatch gain.

And that's part and parcel of what the differences with sovereigns vpi opposed to like traditional types of processes of having to go through this data and be able to challenge it as well with doing automatically within the process we can deploy in an actual facts on not somebody.

The thing is we don't have to wait until we hit rock bottom before we make you change if we worry about out drinking if it's on our mind or even if we drink more than the low risk limits than we should make some changes at the very least take a break just to test your dependency like most of us live tried moderation and we agreed the drinking neuro.

He's got a very sensible approach to triggers though he just recognizes them get super curious about them and let some pulse without acting on a nice analogy is to think of them like a cloud in the sky over a trigger. Let me watch paul. Another way of dealing with those triggers is to create another ritual. Replace it for example. If clive started enjoying it loss of all free bubbly every time he started drinking in the sun shined then his subconscious would gradually create a new unless hopeful trigger climbs. Madonna story is one of my favorites. I think it's the way he tells it. But it's a classic example.

Impeachment: American Crime Story Tells Monica Lewinsky's Side of the Clinton Scandal
"Crime story impeachment which come on september seventh if i if i run my dates correctly. Here's my big takeaway from the abundance of trailers at they have released for this in the last three weeks. Really like quite a push. So and i think i'm starting to get the feeling like this is going to be an american story o. Oj simpson moment. Where i think we're going to revisit a lot of the stuff from the clinton impeachment monica etc. But i have a question about all these trailers. We still haven't gotten a significant amount of time with clive owen. His bill clinton which leads me to believe. They're either sitting on marlon brando in the godfather level performance or marlon brando. Doctor moreau level performance. Like it's it's going to be one or the other that is definitely a take and you may right. I choose to think about it slightly differently. Which is they have two things one. It's very very hard. I mean presidential performances especially in this era are almost uniformly imitations right and it's distracting to be like oath. He's just like bill clinton. Yeah whatever Falco place. Hillary clinton like i think it was a smart move to minimize them in the trailer because immediately becomes about. Wow clive owen. Doing a great job being bill clinton sure in it's distracting from the show. They wanna tell. I think the second piece of it is the from my understanding of it. The reason to tell the story about something that you know obviously isn't fresh and a lot of people's minds but i for people of our age our generation certainly is. Is it for. Sarah paulson to win more awards. That's going to happen. But i think it's more to tell the story of the monica lewinsky and linda tripp and people who were actually the prime movers of this.

"I mean one of the simplest things we have. David nice i love. I love doing simple things as we just have a peasant's sit in a chair. We mock one meter radius circle around the jazz so just over three feet radius circle and we've kept the dog away from them for a moment and we just let the dog into the room with them. We just measure. How much time does the dog spanned inside the circle with their person. It's super simple but it's actually very telling the dogs usually if you give him two minutes most dogs spend a whole don time in the sakha with that person whereas do the same thing with these handwritten wolves which you know. They've known these people since they were ten days old. We're using the same people that the dogs wolves new and they were pops in they. They may be spent thirty seconds inside the circle. They don't have the same intensity of connection to people even people. They've known all their lives. So we do very simple things like that. Another thing we do. Is we give the we give the dog. The wall very simple problems and food in containers If you wanted to you the dog could open it but actually what most dogs do. If there's a person in a room most dogs just look at the person they just look at the past pursuit of help instruction even if it's a stranger whereas the wolves they just go ahead dick rip it open so we try and develop simple sort of official but not hopefully to artificial situations where we could tease apart. Different forms of motivation That's so fascinating.

It's not about what species. The animal is a whether it's domesticated species are a wild species while matters. Is that individual animals experience life if that animal was hand read by human beings from a very early age and has gone on through its life to interact with people especially if people give the animal food with their hands. Well then you have an animal. That's relaxed around people. The looks of people for its social relationships. The looks to people for food. And other things that matter in its life and that is used to paying attention to where the humans hand goes at if that's the animal's life then it doesn't matter whether it's a wolf all we tested bats. Handwritten bats doesn't matter what species the animal is if it's had those right circumstances of life and meanwhile flip it over if you get dogs. Every dolled is a member of a domesticated species but if that individual dog has an ought had rich relationships with human beings has not had the experience that the movement of people's limbs matters for that animal survival food.

That's amazing so so so any any stray dogs they're living probably vastly different lives and vastly different.

When you're choosing your spouse your partner. You're entitled to have whatever you know you like. Girls were blunt view. Blue eyes confu. We're all entitled to have our preferences right. that's fine. That's fine both both. And so if somebody wants. A golden retriever. I'm cool with that if they want a border collie i'm cool with that. I have no problem with any of that. But what people don't realize is that the pure bred pure bred dogs that have the papers like the one the recently one of the. What's it called westminster kennel westminster dog show right. Those dogs are unbelievably inbred. I mean they bred brother to sister father to daughter and they do this. This has been going on for over a century. These dogs are stunningly inbred. There was a study in britain that look to the genetics of all. The plugs will registered in britain of whom there were many thousands and the tonight is looked at the dna of these dogs and identified that allow the with thousands of individuals. They only had as much genetic variation as you would typically find in a few dozen dogs that they were almost cons of each other. Now the thing is you might say. Well so walked. You know if that's what it takes to give the dog the curly tail that i want all the whatever. The problem is the problem. Is that when you select like that you act. You're selecting for things you want. You'll selecting for a certain shape of a cholera by but the method. You're using it so crude..

"I so i. I picked up that you said that. Dogs kind of maybe split from wolves around twenty thousand years ago or so there. That's that's just from kind of archaeological records and stuff i imagine. Is there strong evidence for when they started really becoming domesticated and and so integrated with human life in the way that we Sort of see it today or similar. Wow so strong evidence no. There's not strong evidence i mean. What's interesting is obviously there. Were people around right. People have been around for hundreds of thousands of years. I don't know exactly along. People been around with people been around a lot lot longer at a win. Certain wolves started to sort of formed an association with certain people. Let's say maybe twenty thousand years ago there were people there seeing it going on botoco long before people kept recold in any meaningful sense they did. There were human works twenty thousand years ago but there are no human autistic representations of dogs or really wolves back then so the records unbelievably thin. All you can really do as you look at the bones of the animals and the problem is the problem. Is you think wolf wolf. You think doc well cute little dog but of course in the first thousands of years there wasn't such a major distinction. You know walls are in any case very diverse animals in different parts of the world. You get different sizes and shapes of wolves anyway so then you want to say well. These particular. Wolves are different enough. The other walls that they must have been the earliest dogs. It's a very very difficult game to play. You do get geneticists getting into the game. Because they have ways of looking at the g no and they reckon they can tell you know you count help. How many differences between the wolf genome and the dog genome. You have some estimate of how fast a genome can mutate. And so you were backwards. And he said with this many differences..

And there's no animal that people have had a longer relationship with and the dog. You know fifteen thousand. Maybe twenty thousand years now animal. We've had a long relationship with no animal. We have a more intimate relationship with most of us and so about fifteen years ago i decided to throw in the pigeons and Since then i've been studying the human dog relationship in in all its forms and and i must say it never.

Covid vaccine: PM to have AstraZeneca jab as he urges public to do the same
"When johnson talks about the uk's world-beating response to covid nineteen vaccine pogrom passes muster. It's been an unqualified success or one of the reasons. His conservative party are so far ahead in the polls over twenty five million brits have received their job so fall but the government unexpectedly announced show fall in the number of vaccines delivered in april juice. Supply issues and the debate has a geopolitical angle. To given the you struggling with its own vaccine rollout slovan the line. The european commission president on the block might even consider export controls. All options are on the table. We are in the crisis of the century. And i'm not ruling out any anything for now because we have to make sure that europeans are vaccinated as soon as possible so sarah. Let's begin with the overall state of the uk's vaccine pogrom based on what was set out in december. It's pretty much all going to plan fairly high levels of takeover ninety four percent i believe and the government is insisting that all over fifty will have had their first job by the middle of april. So what's the problem. Well a week ago we would have said. This was indeed the most Astonishingly amyloid success and a sign of vessel. Buoyant moved around it. Was that the with some very clear briefing to a couple of the saturday newspapers suggesting that we were actually going to move to the over forty's much sooner than expected so it was a bit of a jolt to find out on wednesday that in fact. Nhs people involved in the program had been told that they must hold booking any new appointments throughout april because the been a sudden very significant reduction in the supplies available so that really has put the first serious dent in the narrative which right from december the eight. I think it was the day. That william shakespeare became one of the first two vaccine as now suddenly. The government is in the unaccustomed position of having to explain what's happening and explain why some of the public expectations that they'd raised so hard may not be met to be fair to the government. They still absolutely insisting they're on track with the two big dates that they've set for this program that all over fifty should be vaccinated by the middle of april. And all adult britons. Who wants a job will have had it at the end of july. But there's no question that it's been a difficult political management problem for them this week and very much not the position that they'd hoped to be in the club. Let's have a look at why this might be happening and seven. I spent a lot of this week speaking to people. Whitehall trying to figure out exactly what was going on behind the scenes with matt. Hancock gave us a of clarity in the house of commons and the government is pinning own production issues. The first one is this batch of one point seven million jobs that we sent back for testing and the second thing is the supply from the soham institute of india which again the governor's put down to supply issues but others are saying that actions being blocked by modi's government from shipping out to the uk. Exactly it is pretty opaque what's happening. There are two elements. Here that can hold up. Supplies one is the genuinely technical difficulties in producing a complex biological process. I mean it's not straightforward zanu vaccine and a lot of the manufacturing sites haven't made this sort of marin a vaccine before it scale factor. You could say none of them have because this is the first one. That's the fiso won. The astra zeneca at novartis vaccine is also level to a complicated process. So there are technical supply issues and then there at the political ones. You alluded to and i don't know whether the serum institute of india supply has been blocked for political reasons because india was having rather a good downturn in covert cases. But that's turning up again. Unfortunately and there are feelings. That indian government wanted to have it at home. This is so. I think if we look at the context of this a lot of it is actually not that much of a serious problem that we were crunching the numbers this week and april is a significant moment in the vaccine program for the uk. Because yes they were vaccinated all over fifty which according to people like christie chief medical officer of england which uses ninety nine percents of deaths on messages the pressure on the nhc s. But eneko you have to install the second jobs. Really the po- gum began to scale up towards the end of january and eleven week window. The nhl is set between the first and second doses. That really kicks in april and but hancock said this week that really still going to be delivering about fourteen million jobs throughout april which is low though. It's been in march but it's still a pretty high number so it's probably good to keep it in context with feels really what's gone wrong. Here is expectations that the rogue briefing about forty s really feels like delivers come off the bush tourism bush. Johnson's tried to restrain for much of twenty twenty. One yes and i think some. Nhs officials were less than delighted about that huge raising expectations last weekend. In a way. I think this was always going to be a difficult point for the program. It was absolutely predictable that at the point at which second doses to scale up there was going to be a deep in first doses. So it's perhaps unfortunate that there wasn't more subtle public preparation. You're absolutely right international standards even in april. We're still going to be doing more. Vaccinations than many of our counterparts. So it's particularly unfortunate wasn't better preparation. Because i think in the minds of a lot of britain's the will now be a sense of this program isn't doing well it's stumbled. It didn't have to be this way that it could have been very differently presented. And after all as i said the government is still on track to meet those two deadlines that it says now clive. We need to put this in the context of europe as well and we heard from s. the von d'alene at the top. That and you still really struggling with its vaccine vo loud but the most baffling things. She's seen this week. Is the story about the astra zeneca job and how effective or side effects. That may have in this concern. Over blood clots we heard from the ama from the nhra in the uk from the world health organization. All saying there are no concerns about blood. Clots and ashes annika vaccine yet at didn't stop lawson countries from halting giving out the doses. It's a very complicated picture on side effects. At least the spotlight turned away from efficacy. Before countries in continental europe were worrying that the astrazeneca vaccine wouldn't work well enough to older people. I think the efficacy questions have more or less be answered now. The spotlight is on whether they're adverse side effects and a few of those have been discovered there. These two different sorts of blood disorders do with abnormal clotting thrombosis that have been detected in people who just been vaccinated in norway in germany elsewhere on continental europe. The numbers are tiny. I would say fewer than twenty around the continent. Investigation is still continuing. There's no proven link with the vaccine. But a lot of vaccine knowledge ists the might be a link. But that is no reason to stop the vaccination program when it's saving tens of thousands of lives probably and people have said that just by halting for a few days the astrazeneca vaccination and continental europe. This week until the european medicines agency said it was okay that would have cost lives. It loves cost lives directly because people weren't getting vaccinated and it also probably unfortunately of cost lives indirectly because all the publicity about ad side effects will just undermined confidence in the vaccine

"Tell us about the van ops series you've been compared to authors like hand brown and clive tessler so action packed. Might be a good word for it. Yeah action packed. Yes a lot of readers have said. They're literally glued to the edge of their seats. I've had people tell me. They are holding their breath and and that's fantastic. Yeah the other two authors that. I'm often compared to our james rollins and steve berry. So it's small smart pulp fiction. It's filled with intrigue in history and science and mystery kind of all wrapped up in a nonstop action package. Yeah i was gonna say I started writing down what your book was like the first one that i said like a travel guide with an adventure story plus mysticism mystery artifact hunting and spycraft. Pretty much encapsulates it. Yeah there's always overachiever. Yeah i've always been an overachiever. And yeah i. I like to Provide readers with their money's worth as i'm a reader to and i like books that are richly textured with characters that jump off the page. You know and And i've always enjoyed History and and traveling and cruising to places around the world and wanted to include all of that in my books. Well you've done very well with that. I mean you've done a great job. Because the same way i was kind of on the edges might see reading your there. And you're protagonist is medi. Who is nike no expert. I thought that was really cool. What inspired you create this particular character. Yeah that's an insightful question. Debbie and i also liked erica johnson. In in your. Yeah i read. I just read damaged goods and really enjoyed her to matty They they both meditate. Actually it was kind of interested to see that Your character is dealing with some deep emotional stuff and uses meditation as a way to to deal with that and matty's got a little bit more of a pedestrian background than erica does so matty has been an app designer for her job She was an almost olympic athlete. So she's got some physical skills and since high school. She's enjoyed akito. And the reason that i chose akito is because i see a lot of books in our genre where the protagonist is almost callous. Oh and bang ahead to shoot somebody again. Oh well well. I wanted somebody. That will is more morally conflicted about having to use violence. And i thought what's a better conflict because great stories all about great conflict right so what's better than having somebody who is morally opposed to violence being shot at by russian snipers i thought that would be a wonderful setup and and it turned out really good. The theme of that whole first book is is around. You know violence enforce and what's appropriate to us and what's in our culture so i also like having you know bigger themes in my work to yeah fun to explore.

Why are humpback whales getting stuck in rivers?
"Say the least as it's the first known instance of this happening. The first little these animals up to as much as twenty kilometers up a river up in the northern territory and USTRALIA dissipated pitchy here we're talking murky muddy waters and so when I first saw the picture of Humpback Whale, which is an oceanic spacey's in this murky water, it was something that was a phenomenal thing thought sydney-based marine scientist Vanessa at PIRATA. Now, two of the whales is thought have since swam back out to sea but at least one remains in the river and the worries if stranded in the shallow water, is it going to be able to get out? So the main reason that the probably in there is well, I should point out this has never happened before, but maybe one of the animals took. A wrong turn and ended up in this area thumbed back wiles generally in the Kimberley region, which is northwest of Australia H. and every year to breed and have their babies, and now say time to be hitting Beck South dant Antarctica where they're going to spend the summer fading. Let's hope that this one reminding while has the opportunity to do just that being a. Tidal River is rather different to being in the sea. So how might the whale be doing? Do you sound to to listen and to vocalise to talk about now this whale because in on Acre located may be reliant on visual cues. So simply having a little look around or trying to say where there's a space to soon that's that site side there's a whole. Number of things that would probably be going through this wiles mind and without ends Promo fighting it'll putting a human spin on it on show that this animal might be doing circles or at least on. Friday. There'll be a tame going up just to have another look at it just to say what it's doing and to see if it's made any progression in its movements. strumming is a real risk and up in the Northern Hemisphere Southampton University's Clive. Truman, told me why this is dangerous for a whale watch would want to be supporting with the weight of the organs and the way to the animal. So when it strands that can compress the lungs and undamaged into Logan's same time if a while is stuck and tide is coming in and out almost paradox. Can Drown because it can lift itself off of the the bite can then water can get into the blowhole and drown. So what tools to scientists have available to encourage twelve plus meet away? Oh, to do anything, there's a couple of examples that I could run through one being creating a physical barrier with farts. So the animal was simply move away with type in some cases that hasn't worked in the past where the animal is simply gone onto bites you could use acoustics such as banging on physically banging on vessels, which is really nice for a while some have suggested using kilowatt playback sounds, which is the Predator of the humpback whales but again, a Lotta, these are potentially guttering juice stress our. Expert, team will have to y out what options are potentially going to be put on the table to see if it's worth inducing these kinds of reactions to then have a favorable result, which would be the animal turning directions and heading out to say as the name of the river suggests the whale isn't the only thing in east alligator river. Clive again. It folktales of fantastic animals extremely intimidating, but probably not a risk to sixteen major adult humpback whale unless again the whale is stranded, and if the world is stranded and stuck than, you could imagine the talk dolls could pies an additional risk.
University rates of depression double among students during lockdown
"At universities who likely have depression is double what it was a year ago. That's according to a survey released today from UC Berkley and other institutions. Laura Cliven has more Roughly a third of undergraduate and graduate students screened positive for major depressive disorder and nearly 40% screened positive for generalized anxiety disorder. Both rates are a significant jump from before the pandemic. Igor Cherkesov is a researcher at the Center for Studies in Higher Education at UC Berkeley, the group that led the survey. This is unprecedented in our data. We have never seen such an increase first, and we have never seen such high level of anxiety and depression among students more than 45,000. Students at a handful of public research universities completed surveys from May through July of this year. The results showed both depression and anxiety were more pronounced in students who are low income people of color women, transgender, queer and Caregivers. Rates of depression and anxiety were higher for students who had trouble adapting to remote learning. That will be a growing tied off student requests for mental health services, so universities should plan to allocate more resources to address this survey. Authors recommend universities higher MOHR Counseling staff create more appointment times and support groups. They can also implement low cost measures like embedding mental health resource is in regular classes. Screening positively and actually having these mental health disorders are two different things.

What Kind Of Coder Will You Become?
"Summer twitter was buzzing about a particular topic, a particular type of color. It started with a tweet from an investor and it quickly went viral in short. It encouraged founders to hire a rare breed of Kotor as soon as possible to increase their startups chances of success, these coders have a special designation. Ten X. The response to the tweet was not great. Here's just a taste. One of my very best friend she was texting was to me like, can you even believe this guy right here? It. Just had the worst stereotypes about engineers that. In the startup space in the thing is I've worked with these Prima Donnas. I'm sure you've worked with these Prima DONNAS. When. Someone says 10x or there's one of things going on The first possibility is that they mean it as a euphemism for brilliant. And the second is that it means that they're trying to hire someone they think they should be hiring coder, but they don't actually know what they're looking for. So, what is a ten X coder anyway and new coders aspired to be one interview are one does that justify bad behavior turns out? There's a whole history around this topic. So Clive, what exactly is a ten X coder? Well, as the name suggests, it's a Coder who is ten times better more productive, more creative. However, you want to measure that they are ten times better than the average coder sitting alongside them right there. This sort of. Super person who can execute things faster you know write better code more code ship it more quickly have better ideas. Essentially you know. A sort of super powered creature that is a theory behind the tax coder. So the whole idea of tax coder has never really made sense to me because it's such a specific. Number like ten x your ten times. You know your ten times better than the average voter. How could you possibly measure that? How would you even know if anyone is five times ten, one, hundred times better than the average what does that even mean? Well, you know it's funny. There's this number attached because it's sort of cracks me up like every field has this idea that there's someone who has just weighed than others right? You know like they have that idea in in music entertainment you know. Sort of the star they have that in every discipline but encoding, they put a number on it. Right? You know it's just it's data driven and they love to quantify things. But in this case, there's actually kind of a history behind that number. There's a reason why it's ten it actually goes back to the nineteen sixties in the early days of coating. No one was really sure what it meant to do this for a living and no one was really sure what productivity kind of looked like. They had some sense. Some people seem to be better at it than others they couldn't really figure out why and so this one Guy House sacrament decided to do a study where he was trying to answer a question decoders prefer to work in like an online system or an offline and online and offline meant back then was offline meant kind of working. Where you wrote your code on Punch cards and then handed it to a punch card operator and they fed it in and then three hours. Later you found out whether or not your code worked right online meant you could sit in front of a screen and a keyboard and you could type and you could execute your code right away but more modern way of coating. That's the way we code today. But online cutting was really expensive because computers were really expensive are people so much more productive than it's worth spending the money on these expensive online computers. So. How sacraments said Okay I'm going to give a bunch of coders the same task in online versus offline, and I'm GonNa see how well they do but he discovered something. So so remarkable to him that he sort of focused on it. The people who were doing this test. There was a subset of them that were way better than everyone else like the delta between the really good and the bad is massive. Sometimes, people were twenty times faster at solving bug and other people. Sometimes, they were sixteen times. You know faster at writing a piece of code. It's kind of like there's this order of magnitude difference between the really great performers and the really bad ones, and that was the beginnings of the mythology. The people who are really good at coding are rare and they are ten times better than everyone else from there on the myth sort of grew until it is what we have it today.

Where Coders Code
"Is that ideal kind of work to do remotely? Even my own experience with self isolation, as he realized that I've been doing exactly that for a number of years so when you talk to Coders, how many of them preferred this work method? HOW POPULAR HAS IT become? Well. It's very popular, and that's because coders love working from home, the vast majority of coders. If they were given the choice, they would say yes. I would work from home all the time. And the reason why is because it just gives them a quiet and a focus and a lack of interruptions from people sort of tapping them on the shoulder in the cubicle. If you were to say to them. Hey, guys, everyone! Where would you prefer to work? They would all prefer to work from home. One Tech Company, that is a big advocate for remote work is base camp. They've been around for twenty years and they've been remote from the start. Even before it became popular, their staff work from home around the world. Let's listen to David. Haina Myer Hamson? He co-founded base camp with Jason Freed. He's also the creator of Ruby on rails. Actually for the first six months after I started working with Jason. We. Emailed an IM. We didn't even talk on the phone, so took six months I think before we had our first phone call and it took over year until we met each other in person so for very long time, this was not conventional wisdom, so we got access to this huge talent pool of people who've realized that they don't want. Live in San Francisco. They don't want to live in New York. They don't want WanNa. Live in Seattle. They don't live in any of these big tech hubs yet. The really proficient qualified people so. The fact that base Kim allowed them to do. This was a huge factor in both are hiring strategy and our retention strategy in two thousand twelve I had a series of conversations with other entrepreneurs. were, I would ask them about the work practice in and we talk about remote, and they would just give me these trite defenses for why remote can work. Oh, you can't do corporation. The magic only happens around the whiteboard and I thought like what people still think like this. Is that possible? The whiteboard is basically nonexistent base camp. The number one tool we have is writing acing cronies by yourself writing and you posted and you let time pass by good collaboration happens when. Creative people get time and space to do deep thinking. And they compiled deep thinking into deep writing, and the deep writing consists not of one chat line at the time, but a fully composed census form paragraphs the form complete arguments, and then you consider those arguments. With the advantage and calm of time, ninety percent is the considered writing that five percent chat, and then maybe five percent I. Don't know zoom or Tubal or some other video connection share my screen kind of collaboration. So Clive David is making some super interesting point here so I never would have thought of. Are there other ways of working that coders were using that? Make remote work success. Yea Absolutely. They arranged times when they know that they're going to be in contact. Maybe in face to face contact, so there was definitely companies I spoke to that said okay. We know our developers do their best work when they're not here. But we want them to be here some of the time you know. We want to have some face to face meetings. They still believe in that, and so they would have these schedules that were like you know from Tuesday and Thursday one zero five PM. We need everyone to be in the office. Just we can have some time to talk the rest of the time. Go wherever. Wherever you want, you can work in the office if you want to. You can work wherever you want. It could be you know at starbucks could be at home, so this sort of interesting lattice of new arrangements is is one thing that works really well another thing that I. think works really well as figuring out. What's sort of mode of chat or communication that everyone likes. Likes most in in David's case. He likes and his team likes long-form email conversations and I've definitely talk to people that like that, but other ones. They actually really liked slack, or they really liked good old fashioned IRC right like you know green text on a black background, but they worked out what they're. Co presence was because there's there's this phenomenon that sort of psychologists who talk. Talk, about online communication describe as ambient awareness, which is the the ability to know what other people are sort of thinking about doing when you're not physically there with them you know and there's a lot of technologies that allow us to do that and the best remote teams think carefully about what their ambient awareness method is, and they lock in on it and they use it.

Becoming a Coder
"Use spent the last few years fully immersed in the world of coders. You've interviewed over two hundred developers as admins, architects, engineers and programmers for your buck. Yeah I spoke to boy on awful lot of software developers all over the ecosystem. Great you the perfect co-pilot, so glad you could join me be here. Let's start with the most traditional path to becoming a coder going to college to get a computer science degree. I think for what I do as a product manager, it's important to have that technical foundation and glad I did it through a computer science program because I feel like I. Don't understand like. How do I program something to do this? But I also understand like what goes on under the hood. That was venom rot single. She graduated from Stanford University in two thousand sixteen with a computer science degree. She says her education set her up for product manager positions at facebook, Google and other companies. Clive. Voters out there, get CS degrees. If you look at the stack overflow survey, so that's the big gum coating site, and they do a fantastic survey of tens of thousands of their users every year. And their data suggests that about sixty percent of the coders that are on stack overflow that are professional. They have some sort of formal computer, training or something close to it like electrical engineering and and the numbers may be a little higher than that, but let's just say you know two-thirds, so it is still most common route far and away for becoming a coder. Is Go and get a computer, science, degree or something related to it. Is that because s degrees are lucrative. Yes, they are They are what an economist would call a costly signal right? You know they indicate that. Hey, I'm someone who's willing to spend a lot of time learning this stuff so you know I'd be a good person to hire. If you're developer, you're having to constantly learn all the time. New Frameworks new languages new environments. So, so some of the reasons employers would tell me that they like getting people from computer. Science degrees is because those people just spent four years doing nothing, but learning and they're going to need to keep on learning. When you get an undergraduate degree, you're learning, but you're also learning the theoretical math. You're also learning about algorithms, and you're learning about networking and computer systems, and I think all of those just give you very solid foundations so that if you were? Were like you know switch industries or not like? It would just be a lot easier for the Stanford degree helped with being taken seriously honest. You just confidence like that's a big part of it to dealing with imposter syndrome, and then also like People WanNa. Talk to you, even applying to jobs after like you just it's just a lot easier. Because of this big network you have do cs degrees make them better performers than those who come into the industry traditionally. That is a really a really great question. It's a hard one to answer. Because I got completely different answers from different employers I. had some people tell me that? Yeah CS people are just more confident and more self assured and can hit the ground running, then sell trained people bootcamp people, and then I heard exactly the opposite right like I heard you know for example, give it cult. He runs river, which is like a is becoming the dominant e commerce site for selling musical equipment, fantastically growing profitable firm and he's like. You know. I used to say I only wanted CS grads, but they just didn't have all the sort of life skills that you want to be a productive team member and more and more. He stood at hiring bootcamp. People self train, people people who. Are Musicians learned on the side. You also hear praise for the non computer. Science, people I think from a certain class of investor or even old school coder there in the fifties or sixties, and they taught themselves using like a like a commodore sixty four back in the eighties when they see someone who came along and said Yeah I. Just is in job in hospitality and I hate it. I learned. Learned a ton of stuff on Youtube and Code Academy. They're like yeah, I want that person. It is very by model. Shall we say there is a class player? Is? That is really rigorous about only during CS, and there's a whole of the class at actually sometimes regarded as a real mark of pride to be self taught or a scrappy person who change their career and went to a boot camp.

On The Ledge
"If you're not familiar with Clavier mini-armada this is a wonderful species. That's native to Southern Africa and their members of the Amer relived. Aca family. That's the Lilly family with strap. Like leaves and Gorgeous. Lily like flowers that are usually orange but come in a radio collar three to read rusty reg yellow. And there's also some with variegated leaves for you variation fans out there and as to the clavier debate. Well they were named after lady Clive. Who was the granddaughter of Robert Clive and Clive of India? So I guess officially it should be Clavier but Steve from implant center and I both ATV so. You're just going to have to deal with that if you happen. To be a proponent of Clavier Steve Hickman is part of a family run. Nursery called the whole implant center in South Yorkshire in the UK and this interview was recorded before lockdown happen so there may be some references to flower shows which normally at this time of year. Steve would be attending with his plants. But of course that's all been curtailed for the moment but that just put it into context as to why that might be mentioned in this episode. Now Steve as well as being an expert and one of the premier breeders of clears in the UK. He's also an expert breeder of Agatha this to bake and narrowings so didn't check out their website something for the Garden Dot Co dot UK which is got loads of information on growing all of these plans including clears and really is a great resource. I'll put some inks in the show notes so you can take a look at that over to Steve to kick us off with some fron tastic useful information about growing these beautiful flooring house plants and he starts buying explaining exactly what court about clears in the first place where first of all we started and we still do A. I'm a few years ago. They outcomes has changed families into Morella. Deysi which covers the cliff is is not to go into the May. Tens of this society amid other girl was principally a guy called Mike Jeans who was then national collection holder and from talking with him and saying the clippers and the fantastic amount to call us. That are available now. Such as Reds Brahms's yellows petits Greens and pinks and from tastic by colours. It really attracted me. I The ship of the leaves like some shape. It's exactly like the ACA pompous impressive with not in flower because of the array of different flower. Colours just fantastic just mind blowing. Libya's went out saying for a long time. Steve Do you think they coming back in fashion? It's a traditional Victorian plot. You say parents and grandparents used to have them up. They used to have they asked pedestrians manly the vote in the oranges and occasionally the yellows but these days like I say these different colors our community the ball and what we're doing to encourage people to start growing With exhibiting clippers at The larger richest flower shows which is Chelsea Chatsworth. Where LAST YEAR? We did it for the first time in the Pavilion Chelsea and we at to get the gold medal along with the pumped exhibits as well so people say all these new fantastic colors for the first time and people with play Orange One Sort of increase in the collections. I think we are always going to be suckers for all those new and interesting plants safe more generally. What are the basic catastrophically? These I think quite tough floods are they. You have Roy of an easy to grow so stopped up in February. If you've clavier in a container they only liked to be repoted every now and again just like yoga from the same family. The lie of the rose to become jested so once. You've you plant in. Say six to eight inch. Container is happy for three. Maybe four years in that same content. Now let style February you start watering the clavier once a week or once a four not just keep it moist but you do start to feed the clear. Once every two weeks and the reason he stopped feeding now become apparent. Sort of later on you do this. Roy through the season about September. Now if you've never wall broom the clavier will start to flower. Send the flower up through the leaves early January February even a little bit early. If it's a really warm room if you keep it nice and cool which we try and do the flower. Later in the season surrender may June time. So You keep watering you. Enjoy the flower ridden. If you pollinate the flowers with a cotton bud In the morning or evening you get seedpods form in which I'll talk about lead but the most important thing to keep flowering every year is the do like a cold spell so when the danger cross gone sort of June two you can take it outside onto the shade of a tree or a shady part of your Patio Conservatory and leave it there while end of walk. Tober bring it in. Just before the frost or alternatively you can keep it in your house while the September implicit outside September October so it gets not Eight to ten week chill sets the board in the base of the plant for flower in the following spring. Now you can't live is fairly dry over winter. So December January you keep it on the dry side not bone dry but dry. That's the rest in period And brings you into February. You start watering and keeping it moist you feed once a fortnight the fade then brings the flower up through the leaves and the flowers normally just held above the leaves. If you don't say it correctly the flower often stays in the central Rosette delays. And you don't really see it so the cold spell. In the autumn. The dry over interest impaired undefeated wants all night. It keeps you plumbed health and on the issue of fertilizer. What what do you recommend Of The freeway recommend Is is sort of general feed but we have especially speed that we use we do. It is available on our website and the flower shows a mouse. Eighteen twelve eighteen. It's not jim loaf law phosphates and high potash dot keet plums hoppy right the way
A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
Garden as refuge with Ken Druse
"Kind of an eerie juxtaposition out the window and unfair days outside when we can go outside right now unfolding beauty and innocence. You know tiny bulbs plump Little Buds and the headlines. Hourly and daily so You know I wanted to backtrack about what gardening means tests and sort of what brought us to it. What brought you. How long have you been gardening since I was very young house was a teenager and I started with indoor plants and got really turned on and then when I went to college in Rhode Island I was kind of close to Danielson Connecticut which is where low Geez is and you know I was thinking about all this stuff and I think that shopping has a lot to do with my acquisitive NECE and interest in? You know seeing the new plant finding new plant thing will there? Also incredible and shopping online is something you can do now so really well. So you're GONNA be spending some money and when you you said you were a teenager and so forth. What did it besides these sort of amassing a collection? That sort of instinct. That you apparently had Was there some other escapism or something else that brought you to it or you know. I don't know I don't want to project too. I mean I can tell you mine but I just you know I don't know I I know I have a need to nurture and I just love. It's so exciting to see you know. It seems like slow-motion in most cases but to see a plant grow and thrive or something from seed that sometimes. That's pretty fast and from sea to in your case edibles. It's a miracle and to participate in that it it. I'm thinking how heartwarming it is. And that's it's you know it's a boost. Then it makes you. It makes you think about tomorrow. Yeah Yeah I mean for me. I was in my twenties and I mean you know the story most of my listeners. Know Story You know as my twenties. My father had died the next year. My mother was forty. Nine was diagnosed with early onset. Alzheimer's disease I don't even think they called it that at that time but that was the idea and so there. I was called home for my to cover my widowed mother and that unfolded this strange time in my young life and I was close to home to stay close to home during the day. I had a job at night. Someone else came and care for her at night. And what are you GONNA do? I mean as I say you can only watch so much daytime. Tv When you're twenty four twenty five years old and so I got a garden book. As someone gave me Crockett's victory garden and I would seem sad expression. Victory Gardens seems appropriate right now and I you know and I just started doing the stuff in it like I started going to the local garden center and whatever it said I just bought those seeds or that plant or just did these crazy experiments and obviously killed most of the things in the early going. You know I didn't know what I was doing. But that was my entree was during a very dark time and my my younger life So it's been a refuge for me You know number of times it seen me through. I have often said my gardens has saved me many times so I find I'm thinking of spending more time outside because I can't go at the moment And all of my vents. I'm sure like yours have been postponed at least through. May and I'm sure through June and whatever as well Are you thinking of doing more are you? I'm trying to assign myself some projects things I've put off because usually I have garden visitors and I can't make a mess and leave the mess there for weeks while I you know do a Jew Be Greenwich Ovation or something. I'm thinking well. This is the time Margaret. Nobody's coming right well. We we already talked about me shopping. I haven't really gotten that into that but I probably will usually I shop for something because I see something and then I track it down online and then that leads me. Oh they have a minimum order. Oh and then there's five plants and you only wanted one and then there's shipping savings if you buy forty nine dollars for the plant's not that. I've ever done that but I it's almost time for me to spruce up the house plans and that's something. I can do something I should do. You know do a house plant Rehab. I every day I run to light cart to see who's changed or what seed has sprouted. Miracle never tired of that miracle so there there's that Planted some perennials. Yesterday that came in the mail and they were dormant. How so that's happening already in? That's going to continue. I got a Beirut Cherry tree that I'm growing pot I don't know why right well but whatever gets you through. I mean I think right so you said I loved. You said WHO's changed. You went to the light cart To look at your all your little babysit who. You didn't say what she said. Who and I think of them. The same way to plants are not some inanimate objects some it right. You know I think of them as as as who not one but so you said House Plant Rehab. So this is a time for that and we have time. 'cause we're home and we have time to notice and we can. That's a good suggestion for me. Because a lot of years. I get so hectic. Try and get ready for the open gardens. I don't do my repotting of those house plants on their way out the door for the summer or do you know what I mean. I skip it. So that's a really good one when they're on their way out which is late usually mid. May and wouldn't it be great to for me to clean the leaves with a sponge and a little couple of drops dish soap in accord of warm water? And just clean off the dust but also some of them get a little city mole alden. There's all sorts of insects that can actually be removed with a sponge in a tiny bit of soap and water so The things that have ever removed most of the house plants and things that have firm leaves like citrus and Camelia. If you grow things like that and philodendron which you can go anywhere some philodendron. I put my hand under the leaf than just rub the top brush sponging were almost everything comes right off. The plants look so much better and then they say thank you. Yeah Yeah 'cause I mean. Spending a winter indoors is not really their thing. And all that unseen dust that moves around in the air with The heating system when heating systems on in any house right. And you find that fine dust like my clive is all have that by this time of year and they need a nice Tending you so you have you have a Camelia You Grow Hoyas don't you? I I do. There's one at the kitchen window and luckily that's very close the kitchen sink because the plant small enough. It'll go right in the kitchen sink and get washed off there or you have the climate as you. Probably take him to the shower. Yeah I do I do but Yeah but the hoyas. I've never grown them. I've grown them somehow as needed greenhouse. And well we can talk about what they are. They used to be part of the milkweed family but I think they've separated them now but they're semi succulent. They have thick leaves. They're pretty slow growing except in the spring when they kind of shoot. I have one wonderful one called Hoya Carey. I and I started with one leaf in a pot and it stayed that way for about five years. Want an apart- many years ago and then all of a sudden it just exploded a now. It's a very big viney plant. I have it on a a wreath circle. You know stuck in this well. It's a long story but I wound round and round and it has beautiful flowers when it blooms in the summer and it has heart shaped leaves. I have another one that has purple flowers. They don't flower very often. And it's important not to trim eight trim where the flowers come because it blooms on Spurs Kinda like an apple tree and it'll bloom over and over again on the same spurs so you have to not cut those dead head so to speak to the flowers and their fragrance almost all of them and if you do cut it or it will bleed white. Latex like a lot of succulents and milkweed male creates right. Right right

Flight Lines: The Heroic Story of Two Migratory Shorebirds
"Have someone sitting opposite me just twitching to tell his story. The book is flat. Lines and the author is Andrew Dobson Andrew. Welcome to three C- I thank you. David I'm curious about the would twitching. I haven't really made a close study of twitching despite writing. This book. Twitching is a word that is used by dedicated. Some say obsessive Burgers and sometimes they detractors to Indicate their preoccupation with finding the next bird. An observing bird minded research. Because it's not actually mentioned in the book the twitching behavior of Howard Medhurst who was one of the leading birdwatchers in the nineteen fifties and sixties. But this book in other words is about birds or in particular one species of birds the grey plover a daoist wallflower of the shorter dance. It spreads thinly around the world's margins and is often overlooked. What's the fascination with the Gripe Lot? Well let's start by working our way towards the bird from what we are. Probably the closest bird that we know to this is the masked left wing. It's often colder plaza. But it's sexually left wing but that's what we know as a plot now go through that gate and think about the kinds of things that the left wing does transfer them to the tidal flats of the world the far-flung tidal flats of the world. And there's this small bird not much begun a blackbird gray when it's out of the breeding grounds highly colored up when it gets to the breeding grounds and it is commonly found with others in the group of Long Distance Flying Margaret lowrie shore. Birds the ultramarathons birds. Now when you say ultra-marathon sort of distance are we talking so the two birds that I particularly follow which were satellite tag in South Australia and flew north on the first flight. Each of them flew over the entirety of Australia of Indonesia the Philippines to land one of them in Taiwan and the other in southern China so each of them took a nonstop flight of more than seven thousand kilometers. Just to give us a sort of indication in layman's terms. When you're holding this bird. How much are you holding? Well you're holding about a cup of sugar not a big white. You're holding something that really can be quite placid in the hand. Despite its wildness. And you're holding. I guess the promise of many generations of optic life birdlife and they transcend boundaries in many ways in the journey. We've got apple tree boundaries as people on borders and they bicycling cross all of those hemispheres international borders and such like. It's it's quite a phenomenal feet. If you want to get carried beyond the trivialities of human life like borders then migratory long distance migratory birds are a really good way to start because there will pass through the margins of many countries but is not off one eye and they have total disregard for human borders. Now one of the things that the book sort of touches on as you look this journey other various forms of tagging that have occurred or the ability to follow from banding to rocket nets and now two satellites. The satellites would give you an inordinate amount of opportunity to try and be particular about what you say quite revelatory. They are Give you almost near real time information. About where on the planet this bird is and what it's doing even because if you have a lucrative say on a breeding ground you'll see it move from point to point to point as it fades and then goes back to the central point which is the nest So yes it can be unrivaled information and It really is hugely illuminating. As opposed to the banding which was more happenstance abandoning as the book suggests started in the lighting hundreds. But that would rely on. Someone actually catching the Buddha game. We'll exactly Either catching the again or killing it or finding a dead. The doyen of Australian Migratory Schubert's studies like Clive Minton when he lived in England. Has I band on? A migratory shortbread was on a lovely good coach spotted. Red Shank and he was really pleased to have it in hand really priest to put the band on it and some weeks later he got the band back because it had been shot by the mayor of putting your in France who returned the band with the address on to Clive. Now a couple of things fascinated me about. The birds are reading this book. I'm the song lines. There's a connection here with an indigenous song. Lawn is moving up. Moving from group to group and changing as guides and there's an equivocal mention of what the birds was well yes we'll I'm careful to not impose my description on indigenous cultures. But I hope that I have drawn out of the records of indigenous couches The great variety of names. This bird has as it travels not just from Australia. But through China up to Siberia and across to North America where? It's pretty circum Paula. It has a series of lovely nines. And the they are run there are really illuminating series. Too you know they describe often. I described the bird by its phonetic. Call sometimes they describe it by its coloring in Alaska where I went It was cold emphatic. And that means the scorched bird. But so there's a similarity through the sort of landscape in many ways. Yes depending on which part of the world now for such a fragile creature. They are quite a number of threats in this day and age the threats for the gripe the mind well. We've got a bird here. That has persisted down through evolutionary generations for about one hundred and thirty million years so it's not easily removed from the face of the earth. But while it's doing well other others. In the group of long distance migratory shore birds are not doing so well And as a whole the contracting in numbers. I'm this four that have been listed on Australia's critically endangered list in recent years. Because of the problems they face pardon the analogy but the canary in the coalmine. Well certainly you know I think migratory shore birds. We Stu people generally in Australia particularly and when we look at the coasts we should think about the health of Alco spy. The prison or absence of birds like

threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

Monocle 24: The Briefing
UK Labour Party to Begin Contest to Succeed Corbyn as Leader
"The starting gun was probably fired this weekend in the race to become the next leader of Britain's main opposition Labor party it has already become a crowded field with each candidate trying to offer a clean break with the past yet unwilling to upset the Labor hardcore. He seems to be the only people he wanted to vote for them. In last month's general election Who wants to begin? I I let me start with you. Whoever takes over from Jeremy Corbyn does so from a position of absolute rock? Bottom for the party. Don't don't they let let's sort of set the scene I well. Let's hope so From their point of view that it's rock bottom because sinking further would not be a good thing and that's the spirit I think. Yes I mean. Obviously the last election was a disaster. I mean particularly I think a lot of the figures that came out made it pretty clear that in fact the Tory vote hadn't uneven increased that much it was more that the Labor voted collapsed. There was a very big problem for the neighbor policy. And I think a lot of that looking at the polling was to do with Jeremy Corbyn personally there was so say Brexit was a big issue for them But I think overwhelmingly it was coming out in the polls the person she with him say almost anybody who replaces aces him is kind of starting with the level of improvement there and in a sense brexit policy now moves into different states because of course we know Brexit is going to happen on the thirty first of January. And then there's a we're going to move into negotiation stage on withdraw and all of that now that kind of changes the mechanics of that for Labour leader. They can't anymore. There's not much political to revoke cool. Remain or anything like that or they just Phillips did talk yesterday about rejoin as a future possibility But I think really it changes the mechanics. It's about them talking. Just opposing do want this posted as an opposition government opposing what the Conservatives are doing so. We're probably going to hear it. Also talk about you know Brexit is going wrongly their mishandling it etc so we have the runners and writers stepping up Mary ranging from Remain human rights lawyer. Who is a shadow? A shadow secretary He campaigned hard for a second referendum. To someone who wants to think about rejoining to cookie cookie cutter copies but in the female email form of the Jeremy Corbyn style which went down so badly with the voters. Well I think we have to look really whether it did go down so well so badly with the voters because on the one hand yes. There appears to have been an antipathy towards Jeremy Corbyn personally but when you look at the demographic of the Labor Party vote what you see is actually quite a big enthusiasm if not for Corbin personally then for his policies very left wing very old-fashioned socialist policies of nationalization subsidies all sorts of things that we haven't seen in for decades they were very popular with a generation who were in there in the earliest stages of their youth during the financial crisis. And I think this this battle as it were for the soul of the Labor Party. It's not over yet And we're looking at the moment almost only half of it in terms of the candidates who have declared so far who want to be leader. Because we're looking at center center Yes cure storm to the left. But this the there's a big gap there And we have to ask whether this is whether whether the the old style Blair. It's do they exist anymore. They certainly don't exist very much in the parliamentary party as it was elected elected at the At the last election. But where is somebody. For instance like Yvette Cooper. Where is the where the noise is coming from? Somebody who's been incredibly vocal on the sidelines from his privileged perch in New York David milliband where where people who can influence that wing of the party. We haven't heard from them yet. Does that mean that that's over. The Labor is actually varying not exactly to Corbin awesome but that is sort of more the shape of the future then Blairism or any of them up to it Mary. Well I mean. I saw some comments yesterday which was the first day really. Really of sort of Campaigning on Sunday. Talk shows where the was some comment among sort of professional political pundits. Who said actually this could shape up to be quite a sort of a thoughtful election representing a lot of different currents in the Labor abor party But of course that has its plusses and minuses. We saw during the Tory party leadership. Election there again. You had some very different prince strands and what you've come at. What you've come out with is Boris Johnson and the right as far as Brexit is concerned? But maybe not as far I things consent feather appear to be two enormous jobs here. Alex which I is the the idea of rebuilding shattered party which does does not have a unified core. And secondly won't you have rebuild shattered party. You have to be strong enough to take on the Conservatives and not only beat them but beat them so much that you bring back. All the voters deserted them for the Conservatives in the last election in that is a double task of of huge huge proportions and bring about more than the ones who deserted them because remember Labor already were in a minority so actually doing back even more than their deserted voters says and and in specific places it is a tremendous task and it's always been difficult for Labor in the last few years particularly. There are huge divides in their own. Vote Their their membership is actually overwhelmingly remain But of course in those northern seats they lost Brexit was a problem for them because a lot of Labor members in those seats are are actually much more leave so these people want something very different than how united policy that is so split on. Those different issues is a tremendous challenge. I think mirror some actually quite promising candidates but it will be very interesting to see where it goes at the moment the polls have Kissed her in the lead And I mean you know it will be interesting you see. Of course everything can be shaken up during the campaign. Go and tell me who you are promising. Candidates his Co. your is it possible leader. Well do you think kissed has a certain competence to him actually I think it's interesting to see some younger people from the left of the party. Stepping up people like Clive Lewis I would say just phillips as a slightly more centrist candidate who who is reasonably credible And you know they're all these different voices coming up. Who are quite interesting and it will be a big choice flavor which those they go for Os? I think Angela. Rayner is very promising. Who I think is standing for deputy leader From the kind of soft mid left of the party is like find degrees between centralism. Gobert is that they have Mary would what are your thoughts on on what Alex just said. I mean the mentioning of a storm is seen as the leader at the moment the leading candidate despite the fact that he is called Sir. He is absolutely very very keen to storch stress the fact that he has very humble working class backgrounds his mother was a nurse and he just happens to have done the right thing. Some are suggesting that he's the right leader. But I the four years to Leo Leo few years too late Yes. I think there is some truth in that And I don't think it's just the Sir that his kissed Armas Problem I think think he would be seen by as it were younger. Newer members of the Labor Party who joined because of Corbin He will be seen as the establishment candidate and somebody that they they will not support You know it's been it's been said ever since Labor's loss in in the election that They've got not just this huge task to unite the party. But do they will uniting leader. Actually come from the London establishment. This is the this is what kissed on represents percents. I don't know if you're a woman over forty. Five apparently secure has rather something delicious about in this Christmas dinners. But you know if you're not a AH London metropolitan women over forty five. He might not be your bag but just looking at where the next leading light could come from Alex it when I look at the way that the United Kingdom is at the moment reminds me of France about three or four years ago when the Socialists collapsed and the main political structure just didn't it didn't seem to know what to do and and then suddenly Emmanuel macron comes in with almost a brand new party a brand new voice and a bit of razzle-dazzle to boot they. They sort of tried this in the United Kingdom last year with a I can't even remember change. Could change something lasted about ten minutes. But it was one of those little flag-waving flagwaving harassing come on. Let's have a breaking the mold. Oh we is the United Kingdom so stuck in a moment here that it contacting make space for foot for newness and change that that way. I think there's a tremendous problem with the current setup half the effective two party system which had the Lib Dem's done better? We might not be talking about tea fussy system but we really are now because because they didn't break through and as Fayez Change. UK The Independent group all of these various sorts of incarnations of of trying this kind of mass challenge absolutely kind of founded and just did not take flight tool But there is a problem in that we have a social system which is a is a funny compromise permits anyway and that we have a system that was designed refused to vote for an individual. MP I mean actually policy names weren't even on the ballot paper until the night at the end of the nineteen sixties. You just had to vote for your your local. MP and you have to find out who they were vote for the candidate you like so now. We have quite strong party affiliations. Everything is very whipped. All of that and those names are on the ballot paper and yet we're we're still voting for the individuals so there's a sort of complicated compromise I think going on in terms of what you want what you should vote. And they're sort of how we got a party. She system grafted on to a kind of individual constituency. first-past-the-post system and I think that is bringing up these events contradictions and great difficulties for actually eighty four. Both big parties going forward. I mean you know the Conservatives also have a problem demographically in the future and that they're under fifty The fifties actually the majority labor in most cohorts now which is much more extreme? It used to be so as they're kind of older more brexit voters pulse on and They how are they going to speak to younger. Generation who don't own homes don't have job security don't have pensions and therefore so traditional conservative values. This don't necessarily speak to them and it's going to be for them. I think there's another question about why the UK can't produce contact figure. which is that? We don't have a presidential the system And even though this past election was fought I would say on much. More presidential style lines. The was corbin versus versus says Boris Johnson Nonetheless To campaign in a presidential election where people have direct votes for individuals then an individual candidate can make that sort of mark between parties or different from parties setting themselves above those structures. We don't have that possibility ability.
