"Not so much unusual, I'd say, as unique. I mean, she was a pioneer in that sense to that a lot of women's congregations related were founded. They looked to her. She was absolutely a pioneer. I don't think she would have thought of herself as a feminist because that kind of vocabulary wasn't there. But it was that absolute conviction that women could do what needed to be done for other women. And that they didn't need to be governed, guided by, in this case, the church, and that actually has to still means men. So I think she was literally unique and also unique in being in an English woman in the sense. There's nobody there's no other congregation that was founded in the same way by somebody like that. And particularly in such challenging circumstances. And it wasn't until 1909 that she was acknowledged as the founder of the Mary ward Institutes. And it'd be another hundred years in such was finally honored by the church in 2009 how important was that moment? Oh, fantastic. Just extraordinary, we went to Rome on a pilgrimage for that. And there were a thousand of us from all over the world of her sisters, her followers. But I think the recognition was really important for her. But it was also important in a sense for all women in the church because it was something was said earlier on she was one of the popes said that incomparable woman. And that's that for me is that says everything. That incomparable woman whom England in her darkest and bloodiest hour gave to the church. That from a Pope whose predecessor had put her in prison and called her a heretic. So the encouraging thing about that is sometimes even the trip can admit it made mistakes. And Charlotte, what would Mary ward make of her continued continued infants over girls education today? And your girls today, what do you think should make of that? Well, I think you be thrilled as January said and she had this great sign by God's grace, women in time to come will do much. And as I say to all our pupils, it's Mary. They are this living legacy with the capacity to do much. And she had another great catch phrase. BC because of truth and do as a justice. And so I like to encourage our pupils to go out into the world as workers, employers, leaders, thinkers, partners, parents, and to do great things for the greater good as a wonderful part of Mary ward's legacy today. It's been brilliant hearing all about her life. Thank you very much. Sister Jane livesay and charla E three who said mistress of saint Mary school in Cambridge.

"Well, it's a good question, Anita, because she's very well kept secret. She was an English woman, as you say in the 17th century who was a Catholic and therefore lived in times of persecution. And she felt a call to follow to follow religious vacation, went abroad, turned out not to be the right thing. But in doing that, she came to understand what that God was calling her to something different. She said, to some other thing. At that time, the Catholic Church, women in the Catholic Church, who wanted to live a religious life, were cloistered. They were they couldn't govern themselves. They couldn't actively participate in an emission or ministry like education. So she, in a sense, decided that her world had new needs and they needed new answers. But unfortunately the Catholic Church wasn't of the same mind at the time. And what were her new needs? What did she want to do? First of all, she wanted to she was very convinced of the primacy of educating girls, young women. Because as she said, there is no such difference between men and women that women may they not do great things and I hope in God it will be seen in time to come that women will do much. Well, that's a pretty good quote from somebody back in 1612. So and she could see that potential. She was ahead. She was ahead of the game, there wasn't she. Yeah, absolutely. Did you? Too far ahead for her and good. Well, yeah, too far ahead because she didn't get much support, did she? No, sadly not. Her sisters were called quote galloping girls, which after the last step a couple of speakers were thinking that's kind of the 17th century equivalent of being led it. The galloping girls. And the galloping girls, this is why I found remarkable..

So we are telling her story and bringing her to the fore. We've got a couple of examples here and some clips to listen to as well to talk about some of the women the first Scottish female MP. Tell us more. You're talking about kitty Stuart Murray, who's the first woman to sit in Westminster as a Scottish MP and she was a big fighter against depression and she resigned from Chamberlain's government in 38, but she was also anti suffrage, so she's an interesting and controversial character. It was being an MP. She was also the chairman of the national joint committee for Spanish relief for victims of the Spanish Civil War. So let's have a listen to this clip. She's talking about preparations being made for a camp to house 4000 children coming from Bilbao to Southampton. We've had wonderful gifts of food and clothing also. We have had a whole lot of shoes, for instance. Given us by the boot and shoe trade operatives union, a most valuable gift. We've had two tons of onions given. And 40,000 oranges. And perhaps what the children will appreciate most of all, because of course tennis children know all about oranges. We've been given enough chocolate to enable each child to have a bit of chocolate daily for the fortnight it will spend in the camp. So that's one of the women on the list. Another one on the list Anna, is miss Georgina ballantine. Now she is famous for an incredible thing and the picture I saw earlier of this was just awesome explain. Does she famous for catching what is still the biggest fish ever to be caught on line in the UK? His name is bigger, isn't it? It's enormous. And she battled through the night to capture it. But she was also a nurse and she had her legs amputated, but continued to work. So although she's known for this incredible feat of catching this fish, it's about the stories that are underneath and the stories that are not so well known about some of these women as well. Let's have a listen to this clip here. It's Georgina's memories of landing that fish back in October 1922. It has been voiced up by an actor. Around the real steadily until only the cast was left.

EU regulator says AstraZeneca vaccine 'safe and effective'
"The european medicines agency has concluded that the astra zeneca covid nineteen vaccine is safe and effective. A review of the job came after thirteen states suspended. Its use over. Fears of linked to blood clots. But the now says the vaccine is not linked with a higher risk of clots. Well for more. I'm joined from brussels by darren. Mccaffrey the political editor euronews. A darn good morning to you and thanks for joining us with the doubts then about the vaccine. Will this kind all started last week or georgina. A in italy and austria where the reports of suspected blood clots for people who received that vaccine in fact amand had died in those extended to norway last weekend's and more importantly specifically to germany on monday and that led to a whole swathe of countries at particular the big four in the european union. It's the spain and france and germany deciding to suspend the use of the astrazeneca vaccine on what they call the precautionary principle so just in case essentially and that meant that the em aid and investigated these claims and yesterday. She said e kook. The director insisted that the vaccine was safe and effective. They said they couldn't find any link at all between an increase in blood clots and the vaccine however they did also that they couldn't rule arts at that there may be one specific type. Ucla cloth that has seen an increase and they couldn't rule out that that might be linked to it book again. Mccook pointed all medicine. All medicine has got side effects. You pick up a box of paracetamol at. You'll see that. In the most extreme circumstances it is possible. You might a reaction to its the point. Is that risk does not outweigh the benefits of this vaccine is the ema insisted yesterday. There are houses of people dying every day today tomorrow the next day across europe from corona virus and that this vaccine will help save lives or stop people getting ill. It will stop the main open hospital. It will stop them dying. And that's why they have consistently said that countries should have carried on using the astrazeneca vaccine an interest in the of course while not all countries stopped it for example they didn't hear belgian said. It would be irresponsible to do so. It is interesting the eu countries. Listen to the european medicines agency yesterday but ignored advice all week. The advice consistently has been not to stop the use of the astrazeneca vaccine. And i mean it just seems such a giant waste of time in terms of a race that everybody is trying to keep up with to suspend this for four really what has appeared to be no reason i mean as any woman knows taking the contraceptive pill as a much higher. Incidence of blood clots. Indeed i think from their point of view and this is where it gets complicated here in european union. Of course you've got european agency which is kind of the overarching body that authorizes drugs and authorized vaccines but you then also have national regulators. Who essentially gets to decide how those rules applied or or whether a member state should've finds by those rules when it comes to germany and where we saw a whole swathes countries at backing germany. The was the principal. There's also concerns about potential legal action because ultimately this is a state authorized vaccine service ad. That's been offered obviously to every german. And i think there was concern. That even could be farmed and they had data evidence to say that the wasn't increase increasing site. When it came to one specific type of blood clots the wilkinson's that may well open the german state of legal action and they wanted it to be investigated but yet. In retrospect all men many of these member states looking back. I answer that decision and decided it was the right one to do. Given the unfair. I would suggest damage reputation of astra zeneca for a whole load of ruse reasons across the eu and the damage that might do to the overall vaccine program. I'm not entirely sure was the right thing to

I mean their front line with the san benito's of burg line was pretty much not on the field and then they got a little bit more even in the second half I think chelsea should have been a little bit more. Clinical more decisive that could have scored a second or third one. That didn't do that. And that broad the spurs the last couple of minutes of the game back in the game and and they almost got venecia's there are almost had The win after the equalising header.

A Weekend Of Chaos In Britain
"Been a weekend of chaos. in britain. the prime minister. Boris johnson gave a press conference on saturday which kick started a chain of events that is now being felt worldwide launch price former communications director at number ten downing street joins me now and monaco own editorial director tyler overlay is on the line from our studio launch. If we could begin with you can you talk us through. What's happened since saturday afternoon. Well basically christmas in britain has not quite been canceled. But it's come pretty close to it and it's enfold a pretty massive change of direction if not u-turn by the british government only on wednesday of last week. The prime minister was saying it would be inhuman draws people to cancel that christmas plans And then on saturday. He was forced to do a news conference in which he said that that is exactly what he was asking them to do. So that now people in in this country because of this new variant of covid nineteen essentially will be asked to just see a small number of people depending on where they live in the country on one day only on christmas day and then of course. We learned yesterday overnight. that's because of this New variant which is understandable because in great concern around the world. People struggled to see whether or not they have already with a. If they haven't they can they can contain the to prevent it coming. In from the united kingdom of borders closed all over the place huge queues to lorries trying to get to the at channel pulse dover in in particular where the crossing is to france and The french assigned that they won't take any huge queues at the an railway stations that get out of london and also chaos at the airports with likes being canceled to just about every destination you can of and it's hard to keep track of all the buddhas being closed at the moment. Tyler could bring you in here. What is the european view. We'll good afternoon georgia. European is one of not just canceling flights and cancelling connections. But also what we're seeing now. are now new quarantines going up so you know brits and also we also focused on maybe on a territory close to your heart or close to your heart also south africa as well because south africa is very much in the news as well it it. It is really in line with the uk as another country. is seeing outright bans on all travelers arriving whether the company from cape town or Or johannesburg into germany into switzerland and elsewhere as well so you have mean proper borders closes. It looked to for that moment. Yesterday we saw the dutch saying that. Okay airlinks We're going to be suspended but now we're looking at you. No one is allowed to arrive. in many countries the uk. And as you said almost minute by minute there are new measures going by countries across the continent here I mean lance one of your former colleagues listed campbell says it looks like the whole country is being put in brexit four by the rest of the world when incompetence meets venality and covert and brexit combined to expose the worst possible government at the worst possible. Time which you agree has this been woefully mishandled. Mile does have a way with words doesn't he. And he's absolutely right to in pretty much. Everything within the he says. Of course you have to separate this from from brexit brexit the final brexit deadline. Which is the thirty first of january. Hasn't yet hit us but as honestly suggests it's a taste of what we thought who's going to come anyway and he's also right to say that it raises a big question over the competence of the government other new variant of covid. Nineteen isn't boris johnson. Falls it's not anybody's walton in the in the british government but their reluctance to recognize. What so many other people around the world were recognizing and what their own scientific medical devices with telling them. Which was that the original plan for a five day. Christmas virtual virtually a free for all in the uk was just madness to only for that only to dawn on them on saturday. In the light of the new virus i think does call call call into question their their competence the end of the year when actually frankly dot competence has been called into question many times. I mean you think that johnson used the fact of the new variant to excuse his u-turn and was that then the perfect excuse for european borders to to fall like dominoes and shut us off physically from the block. Is there a little bit of perhaps schadenfreude going on here. We'll do spend a lot of speculation today georgina. You look at a number of different european news. Outlets are we also heading for some type of emergency extension Which could potentially happen. Which would again this would be of. Course be you know the perfect measure You have this new strain. You have borders. Of course being closed eros suspended cetera There there's no better excuse to if they wanted to kick this into the grass. I mean no one wants this But certainly you have to think here we have incredibly busy government Who have to deal with logistics issues. they have to deal with A media and public storm around this. I think we could be could be heading for certainly if you're listening to a lot of the correspondence at have brussels today. Maybe an extension talking about those logistical issues. Lonzo i mean. There are serious concerns about supply chains. How will the border closures affect availability of because then indeed traffic. Kent is already gridlocked in terms of traffic coming into the uk. Of course the roots are still open. If people wish to use those rates as a question ma about whether eu holiest would want to send their vehicles into the uk If they didn't get out again especially in the run-up to christmas and the other thing to remember is that a quite a lot quite a high percentage of trade across the english channel is unaccompanied freight. So it goes in containers dr flirt. It's picked up on the other side so there's no physical as a human being crossing with it and that can continue so the supermarkets and the many people in industry. I'll say don't panic yet. But we may be days away from them saying actually. Now's the time to panic I mean tyler is britain and by extension boris johnson. The sick man of europe. Is this an unprecedented crisis. Could we compare it to. I don't know one thousand nine hundred nine well if you look at some of the headlines in the papers certainly in the german press. We've been seeing the word pariah state being used at. This is not something that you throw around lightly georgina and of course. Adrian has lancer as well. You're there've been so many missteps on the part of this government of boris johnson's government over the last year You know just you fits and starts Throats and certainly near the stop start notion of of how to deal with this and then there's just the pure calms issue that you had the health secretary matt hancock. You're really using the words out of control. No one wants to be quoted and heard to be using the world words out of control. But that's of course what is what is popping up in the media all over the place so this is very much a situation Which is a on number ten. Watch and i really. I mean unfortunate viewing You know when we have just a little over week to run to the end of the year absolutely. I mean the whole thing about boris. Johnson is his popularity. He's been trying to do everything. Save christmas to just remain popular. He's he's a brinkman he makes. He puts off decisions until the last possible moment. He's had to do this thing he didn't want to do. What does this mean for his future. Well it certainly calls into question. I think quite a lot of wiser heads in the conservative party. A wondering about the man that elected as their leader elected him as the leader essentially because he was offering a clean break with the party's and and with the country's past as a member of the european union but there were a lot of alarm bells were ringing even before he was elected leader of the conservative party so prime minister about whether he had the kind of character to do the job. Not as those questions are even more relevant today but one aspect of his character is an shown this time and time and time again is that he thinks he can get away with almost anything so things he said in the past that might have ruined other people's political raise. He shrugged them off with a joke or or a struggle. Whatever it whatever it may be decision sees a potential scandals in his private and professional life. He thinks he can trump the more often. Just get on with it. And i think that Which is a kind of you know. Fly by the seat of your pants. Premiership simply isn't up to the task that now faces and and we're we're finding that out and a lot of people paying the price for it absolutely tolerate wonder. If i could just end with you. I don't know how much of an astronomer who are but saturn jupiter comes closest. They've been in almost four hundred years today. The the two giants of the solar system will be just not point one degrees part in the night sky that makes them appear to be one bright star just about the moon the great conjunction as it's being called also coincides with the winter solstice. Now we all know what happened. Two thousand and twenty years ago when there was a bright star. Do you think this is a potent from the heavens. Are we to expect the second coming or the end of days. I think we were corresponding last night. Georgina did use the word biblical then. So i didn't know if that's sort of foxfire. D'you into into that orbit certainly feels like that with this. It is really a convergence on on so so so many levels. I mean if you if you break this down thinking about the the the the ongoing political story that we've had around brexit Really pretty much a year that we've now been dealing with at least global level with this pandemic And then all of these other we call them niggly. Bits that are also I think surrounding the uk at the moment As well so this will be on. This will be revisiting. The story of sure later today and we'll be talking about it across the week for sure. Absolutely and i think just to tear each other up if we could schedule a zoom call later where we both sing. Tutsi-run emma sheet. Is christmas eve That would go some way to alleviating the absolutely. I think that's going to have to be heavily on the playlist this afternoon. We'll look forward to chatting later. Thank you very much to tyler and to launch price

Brexit negotiations extended
"The brexit negotiations have been extended. It's been a tense weekend of talks which ended without a resolution except that the teams will continue to bargain. Darn mccaffrey's urine news political editor. Ann joins me now. Darna blustery man and a crumpled face and impeccably turned out an utterly composed woman libertine and lutheran images of boris johnson's meeting with usher underlying dominated the front pages and it seemed to me at least pretty much characterize the tone of the brexit negotiations. So can you tell us what happened over the weekend will in many ways. Of course the talks restarted. Again as you say. After that meeting with vonda line and boris johnson in brussels on wednesday nights they did seem not make an awful awful lot of extra progress. They inched forward to a large degree editor. Tina particularly in this area of the level playing field dot es britain would have to adhere to many of the rules and regulations of the european union for years to come that wants to have access to the single market particularly on this idea of divergence. Oh britain wants to forge. Don't power in the world committee regards. That's what brexit is. All rexiti is all about was the european union since she says well. If you do that that means consequences. It means. We may well the limit your access to the single market and the have been suggestions that it britain diverged. Too far the cop. Some of those rules and regulations that brussels could put on what a cold kind of like tariffs taxes on some of its goods to try and keep it into line. And that's been the really controversial area on that point. Europe seems to be conceding some ground that may be britain might be able to reciprocate by doing exactly the same to the eu all that the independent all between posts deciding if britain is undercut those regulations. That in the end that process is a bit more complicated and drawn out and then the eu it initially anticipated all although that's an awful lot of detail on what is a minor point there are still these inefficient gaps but there is a sign of progress and the reason that the talks continued. Go beyond yesterday is done to kind of to simple reasons. A neither side wants to be seen to walk away from these talks. Georgina no wants to collapse them. Because ultimately they'll always be a blame game about who brought about the no deal brexit and second of all you know it may well bore us all to death and there's no home and carry on talking no one loses so why not talk until the cows come home or indeed the. We're not allowed fireworks in us even till they're crackers get pulled. Whatever happens on new year's eve this year. So i mean the talks could actually go on until the deadline which is the thirty first of december. We'll in practical terms not really. Id so that the front pages of today's daily telegraph suggests that talks could carry on until new years. That's the headline. at least though. It doesn't suggest what year which is likely distancing. No i in theory. And i think we all kind of i keep saying this into the last week. I was told last week by an eu diplomat that were looking at the eighteenth around the as well as the last days to secure agreement because then we really all pushing the envelope in terms of actually just having time at all for both the european parliament and the british folder to ratify this agreement. Because it will have to be. There is a deal will need to be ratified by both parliaments. Not there is talk and with the eu everything is flexible that potentially it could be agreed by e you leaders and ratified provisionally in the new year. So almost in retrospect. I'm not entirely sure that can happen with the uk parliament but you know talks will continue at some stage. Somebody's gonna have to make a decision though. I mean they cannot continue indefinitely. And as you've said as the telegraph suggested they definitely cannot continue beyond news because of the legal deadline that is in place. But i mean there are also things like for instance tax systems need more than a fortnight to boot up to change various things. We're also being told that supermarkets have been ordered to stock up the goods. In event of a no deal will cost twenty percent more that there are interim measures to keep planes flying and so on. I mean there's so much detail that needs to be worked out the things that are really interesting about this first of all even if there is a deal it's only really covering about twenty cents of the existing rules and normality. That's already in place which means that's eighty. Percents is either having to be made up by changes that businesses are having to make stuff that you and i won't see but will cost them time and money and additionally the will be disruption because of course will be extra checks at borders particular over in calais and that means that we will see many more pictures of those lorries cues them for after aftermarket after mile. And you're right. We all still likely to see an increase in food prices to a degree. If there is no deal that gets worse because the tariffs potentially william place will be in place sterling will potentially fall even further on those two factors will mean that food prices will likely increase the destruction means that supermarkets already ordering goods talk about destruction to medical supplies and also in the amended. No deal as you rightly dives there will still have to be many deals. Don't breakneck speed to ensure that you know planes continue to be able to fly into european espace. That lorries are able to even enter the opinion so even if there is no overall trade agreements that will still have to be some deals just to make sure that things carry on beyond the. I generally in a relatively normal way now. What about the navy. The royal navy has been told that it should patrol to police channel waters To to stop illegal fishing as it may well be by then Charles michel the president of the european council referring to that said the britain was not lose. Its cooling. Go overboard he said. I'm trying to be serious on the european side. At least we keep our sang for. Yeah i think we'll see what happens with the role now. I mean even in the event of not we'll see what happens with the law. Maybe i'm sure they will patrol and all we're going to get into fish wars that we saw. I think it was back in the nineteen seventies involving iceland's when it really did get a bit nasty and ships were sunk certainly pretty badly damaged in wars over fishing there. You have to remember the european union in its deal contingency. Planning junior suggested that. If britain bolts these breakneck speeds kind of temporary deals. That i was talking about when it comes to the ability to move call goran or indeed planes that they would have to concede that the current agreement on fishing would continue for at least another year. Which makes me think that in the ends. That probably was likely to happen. Not least of all as well because we have to remember no deal. I deal on. Fishing may be banned from both sides and fishing but no deal is also bad. And i'm not entirely sure that the fishing communities of the east coast of england or northern france. Want no deal either. Because that may mean they don't have access to each other's waters but given the acrimony were to see in the nastiness in no deal. Brexit may will also mean that those uk fishermen for example will not be able to sell the fish to the european market.
Michael Flynn: Trump pardons ex-national security adviser
"Former. Us national security adviser. Michael flynn who was convicted during the justice department inquiry into alleged russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election has been pardoned by president. Donald trump trump called his own action. A great honor whilst house speaker. Nancy pelosi called it an act of grave corruption and abrazen brazen abuse of power. Well which is it. And what kind of precedent does it set. Let's get the opinion of scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. Good morning to you. Good morning do remind us of flynn's short-lived term. I think it was just three weeks in the white house. Well while it was only three weeks in the white house there was an import run up to the while he was on the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. Because michael. Flynn lied to the fbi on two occasions and pleaded implied pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about a number of conversations. He had with the russian ambassador. Sergei kislyak and december two thousand sixteen. Why were those conversations important because they were about an incoming trump administration lifting sanctions on russia. That had just been imposed by president. Barack obama over moscow's interference in the two thousand sixteen election and interference which of course favoured donald trump. So the was that that michael flynn on behalf of the trump campaign or trump transition was trading immediate political favors in exchange for russia's help The initially the trump administration tried to keep planning office in january february two thousand and seventeen but he had to be sacrificed trump's trying to create a firewall to prevent further investigation. That investigation didn't stop of course accommodated in the miller report which found that there was cooperation between the trump folks and the russians but the right wing insisted and kept pressing trump. You must pardon. Michael flynn he became like this icon for the misinformation that this was all a deep state plot to overthrow the president and we do at some point. That trump would probably pardon fled. It just so happens to come. Easy as trump is trying to cling onto the white house after losing the election in november. We'll see what kind of precedent does this set. I mean do you think that we'll see trump do similar in this. Lame duck period. Oh yeah i think there will be more. And i think that's for a couple of reasons but first let me remind you. That is not just that michael. Flynn actually lied to the fbi about the russia case. It's also that michael flood may have faced prosecution over being an unregistered agent for a foreign power. Taking hundreds of thousands of dollars shrunk turkey and russia for his work while he was on the trump campaign to the extent of making on voice of the turkish government. About extraditing a cleric who is considered an opponent of president aired on And that michael. Flynn was making more money of trying to get nuclear power plants for saudi arabia while he was on the trump campaign and the trump administration In other words trump is willing to give flint a pass for that for two reasons. One he wants to bury the trump russia a fair and trump still faces possible charges over obstruction of justice over trump russia. And secondly michael. Flynn could testify against donald trump in a number of proceedings that are ongoing at state and federal level. Trump wants to cut off that possibility. But you know what michael not. The only person who could testify against donald trump avoid that possibility and of course after trump's term ends in january. He is as you say likely to face. Many legal challenges is there any way he can preemptively. Pardon himself no. We don't think so. I mean no president has tried to pardon himself so we're on noodle legal ground but mostly glands say no that power can't be used to get yourself off the hook what donald trump could do however days before january twentieth. Joe biden takes office resign. Let mike pence become president mike pence pardons donald trump. That is an extraordinary scenario to to think of if it didn't happen in the interest of a united america do you think joe biden might pardon trump if he is convicted. I don't think biden will pardon trump because the scale of the abuse of power by trump as well as the possible crimes is is great probably greater than that of richard nixon in the nineteen seventies. But i what. I do think joe biden will do as is that he will not possibly. He will not push the justice department To do federal investigations in other words. Trump is in sort of a limbo but of lambeau at the federal level. However what joe biden can't do is issue commands to the new york state prosecutors who were compiling a series of cases against what would then be the former president and i mean. Do you seriously think that we could be looking at a feature where donald trump is behind bars. Look georgina there are many things that have happened. We could not visit for years. So i i wouldn't rule anything out at this point. I think donald trump's gonna go kicking and screaming and he as we've seen with his dispute of the election results. His attorneys will drive this out as long as possible. So trump might avoid prison but to avoid prosecution. Now i think even the donald can't get away with that scott lakers. Thanks very much

Dr George will issue with the lady she was fear degeorge and. She she was just like the pinnacle of everything my. Doctor should be she. She knew is really well, she knew individually, she asked about those when we went to see her, she's got other family members that nick without really kind of old fashioned family. That we all kind of dream of having which is really hard to kind of get. But. But you know it was really important and I I really I remember really clearly when when Dr George Retired and she had a bit of a tea party in the waiting room. which which again, we never do that now. Kind of infection control Pepsi's but but she had she had a tea party patients mom will have wedding sorry to it was such a big deal and. I remember getting dressed up putting going to erase accuse US really sad but really excited to be invited to this. You know it was that kind of movement that I thought. Wow you know don't just can have a real impact on people's lives particularly cheap please we don't often hear about that side from from General Practitioner we a lot of the drama we imagine happens in hospital and a lot of impact league we imagine happens in hospital, but so much can happen in general position in the community. Absolutely. It's an completely integral part of our day. To Day life is not by my mother was a doctor and she was talking about how things had changed. She was a doctor for fifty years and she said one thing she really noticed now is that that people never touched you she says her main job as GP was to lay her hands on people and for people to feel that contact and cheap felt when she was a patient in her later years that just never really happened. No. No I trained GP's as well at she. I G P now full for over ten years have been adopted for. Sixty years I think now and you know you have to gauge the situation. It's not. We don't touch people complete know if if there's an elderly lady, an elderly person, you're a child. Gentle handle may have this is always you knew appropriate as needed. We go to be very careful of course, and I were give advice to my GP trainees but you're absolutely right things have have changed and there's a lot of pressure on GP's now not just through the volume of demand also the volks ticking exercise and when when it's just the doctor and the patient when it's just me and my patient in the room that coal pot of general hasn't changed in all the years that it's been around but it's everything else around not not puts pressure on that situation and can take away from those nuances are so important. Now you'll book the doctor will see now follows your fifteen years working as a GP from rookie to becoming a partner in one of the busiest surgeries it tell me about the surgery and and you're working. Patton, there, I mean, presumably the numbers are pretty overwhelming. Yes. So so it is the Biz in in inner city Bradford and we have a very kind of multicultural patient base, which is, which is brilliant. It's why I wanted to work. we have twenty, five, thousand patients registered our our our practice is incredibly jaws can. Before then there's always a big cured stations has a big rush on the phones when when the phone lines open and with admits, Yoyo Clinic lists will be full than extras will be added on because patients need to be seen, and so from the moment you get it and it doesn't matter how you getting nearly bad and I get in very early about seven quarter seven the minute you get working flat-out right through to the end of the day. But you I say all of this in my book, the kind of things that that really helps you keep you going mongst pressure is is your colleagues. Michael. Just amazing. I. Asked I went with some of the best GP's and I. Them every day the best nurses again, I learn from them as well and it makes a big difference in friends outside of work and I think that's really helped me because he is so much about GP's bailing out healthcare professionals bidding out and I think that would be a real risk if I didn't have the support of my colleagues in the friendships of my of my colleagues and so that makes a big difference for me,
Interview with Sue Armstrong
"This is monocle reads on Georgina Godwin, and today I'm speaking to sue Armstrong Science writer broadcaster and a foreign correspondent. He's worked everywhere from Brussels to South Africa. She's been a consultant writer for the World Health Organization for more than twenty five years and written extensively on all areas of health and science. Her latest book is borrowed time the Science of how and why we age. Sue Welcome to the program. Thank you very much and be with you if we could start with a really basic question what is aging? You say it's a really basic question. It's a very good question but I mean, that's it's really difficult to know because there lots of different definitions and they keep changing over the years. Very interesting. Actually some people say, Oh, it's dying from the inside out some people say it's genetically driven. Some people say it's just wear and tear some people actually even go far as to say aging is a disease and I remember the first time I heard somebody say that I wrote my eyes and thought. Oh goodness. It's like everything else like birth and things like that. The scientists are coming in and medicalising the whole thing. But in fact, I came round to seeing their point of view on that to quite an extent by the end of my interviewing and so on. But basically, it happens to all of us but one of the great mysteries of aging is the fact that you look at a whole range of different species in so many different lifespans including some creatures. which seemed to be almost immortal things like that it'll hydra that we used to find when in pond water and look at under the microscope and sort of early biology lessons and so on. I'm to be almost immortal. So it's to a great extent. It's a mystery and there are still quite a number of different theories of what exactly it is. So let's look at the impact that it has on the body and the diseases that is ultimately responsible for. Yes I think going back to this whole question about what is aging. This also comes down to the diseases I think the definition that's most or the explanation that's most widely accepted at the moment is one called. The disposable Soma theory, which basically translates into ordinary language as built in obsolescence, and how it works is this that it takes an awful lot of energy and resources to build and maintain a body such as and in the end nature doesn't care about US individuals are tall nature. Whole purpose is to ensure the survival of the species, not us as individuals, and so most of the effort goes into ensuring that our Jones sells the sperm and the are immortal and can get passed on from one generation to the next and our bodies nature's invested in the sort of. Mechanisms for repair and maintenance to keep us going to we've grown up being able to pass on our genes and bring up the next generation nurture the next generation to it's on its feet, and then after that may Chazan got too much use for us and the repair mechanisms in our body, which is I say are extremely expensive in terms of resources and so on. Resources would have been very difficult to come by in our earliest for our earliest ancestors, those sort of rundown, and it is the gradual loss of maintenance inefficiency of maintenance and repair that seems to be at the root of aging. So now, a lot of the research seems to be lumped in with pseudoscience, snake oil cosmetics, and so on. Why do you think that is? Well I think. That's been a terrible problem for Gerontology, the actual science of aging because it is lumped in and it's got to be stigmatized by the snake oil salesman and saw and I think very basic this since time immemorial I mean, if you look back over centuries, people have always wanted to find the Elixir of youth and I think to a certain extent. It's that life is so rich and sweet. That people can't bear the idea of dying and a also as a as a species. We're fairly arrogant. We don't like to think that we are awful and I think it's it's been the search for immortality. This has given the Gerontology a bad name and you know it's it's really it's really a very sad because aging is massively important because you were just asking a minute ago about the diseases. Of Aging, and as I said earlier, there's some people actually call aging itself disease, and this is because the diseases that we know that we recognize very much age related things like heart disease and dementia and cancers, and diabetes, and strokes, and frailty the single biggest risk factor for all of these these diseases that we recognize very much as diseases voltage is the aging process itself. It's literally sort of. Wearing away of the body that gives rise to these diseases, and so you could save the diseases of old age are in a way just the sort of points on a spectrum, the most the most obvious and severe points on a spectrum of what is a generally debilitating and pathological process, which is the aging process.

And he qualified Olympics and he was going to be going but they were in Berlin jury time on the engine hockey team. They didn't let him go because of the dangers.

Roberto Azevêdo quits as WTO chief a year early
"The financial analyst and broadcaster. Lewis Kipah Good morning to you. Louise Morning Georgina. Big News from the World Trade Organization. Yes so the World Trade Organization is in the midst of an existential crisis that has just been made considerably worse because the head the boss of the WTO has just stepped down Roberto as US Bit of a surprise departure the World Trade Organization's been existence for twenty five years. It's been battered by president trump's criticism. It's been facet by the China America. Trade war it's been well. It's functioning has been significantly damaged by president trump's failure to allow another judge to go into court appellate body the judges world trade disputes that that Appellate Body Body doesn't have enough judges on anymore so is failing to function and of course now we've got the krona virus which is going to cause global trade according to WTO to full by about thirty percent this year. Which is catastrophic. Global trade has been increasing gear off year after year for decades. And you've got to remember. The origins of this came out of the Second World War. The push economist may not canes out of the desire to create a way for disputes. To be. You know. Get disgust rather while than anything more serious. And I'm a believer in free trade. I'm believe with the benefit that it does to us. Free Trade and there's plenty of economic rationale for the huge benefits to be accrued for for free trade and this is really quite depressing and really quite worrying about the future of this body that has done so much to improve the economic lives of so many around the world and is there anyone in the frame to take over who would want the job. Frankly he would want I mean on top of that we've also got the row currently between trump although he seems to row with everybody and Beijing about the phase one of the China. Us trade deal and he wants to go back and negotiate it. I mean frankly. I looked today as one. Commentator said it's not worth the paper it's printed on but even so it was something that could be waived as a sign of conciliation between the two sides.
ComiCon on the radio
"And with us. Today is Dr Lee Francis the fourth he is the CEO and founder of native realities and the director of indigenous Pop X. Also here with us today to is Johnny J and She is the founder of a tribe called Geek She was also scheduled to present at indigenous. Pop Ex. My pleasure to have both of them here with us and also on introduce you to maybe a familiar voice to you. You know what I'm just going to ask him to say. Hello let's see if we can guess who he is. Sir. Please say hello. I'll give you a hint. His name starts with the Jay. Go ahead and say hello to native America. That's how you know this is live because you don't plan stuff like that We're just going to check the line again. But if you'd like to join us one eight hundred nine six two eight. Four eight is number. Let's go back to another person's whose name starts with J Johnny j In in just a little bit about you know when this focus comes to indigenous representation in pop culture how it's really critical because it leads to other things Johnny J Takeaway. Well it does You know we've always been storytellers. We've always been artists and so to see these celebrations especially I did. Did you pop x? Of Our contributions to mainstream pop culture is so wonderful. And it's also inspiring two are native us because they don't often see themselves represented and you know just like us growing up. You know they WANNA be story tellers. They WANNA be artist. They WANNA be musicians and to see themselves in that role or to see natives in that role Gives them the belief that is possible and they can pursue that and be successful and be what they want to be that there's no limits to their potential? So you know. That's one of the reasons. I really look forward to India jazz. Pop Acts and because it's just a celebration of who we are as indigenous people in our creativity and innovation So that's one of the reasons that I really love it. Because the more that we get that representation the more that we see ourselves being represented the more we believe that anything is possible for us. And so that's that's one of the things that I really love about it and I think something they is also exciting to is meeting. The different folks who were creating different things and and it goes all kinds of mediums. You know people who are doing visual arts People who are wearing wearable art People who dress up Cost play and our emulating some of the things that you read. So you like. You're really seeing the comic book characters come to life. It's really interesting Johnny Jay. Thanks for that and let me. Let me try this again. This man is so famous all he has to do is say hello. You might even know who he is. Sir. Police say hello everybody. There's a hole in my pocket. Were money she'd go. There's a whole there's a big on wall very nice. Jj can you guess who that is? Oh I know exactly did I did. That is the amazing Jonathan John. Hi everybody welcome to number ten and Jonathan You're joining us today. Out of San Antonio Texas folks who may are meeting in for the First Time. He is an actor and a musician you might know him from. King of the hill The magnificent seven and parks and recreation My pleasure to have this Donahue Mara artist here with us today and Jonathan Booy when people see you at gatherings like this they all flock. They got a million questions and they're actually meeting somebody who has a direct connection to You know what what some people call Hollywood or or the mainstream media and Jonathan. Why is it important for you to let are indigenous nations? No they have space in this big mix of stuff. I think it's very important to begin with. I mean we are the original storyteller embedded in our DNA to share our stories. This year believes is share our dreams to share our history and within an industry that is basically a storytelling business. Why not have you know the original storytellers being represented in Hollywood? You know whether it be in Film Television Radio Comics You know I I do. A couple of other. Smaller indigenous are smaller comic con. And you see so much in the marvel world you see so much in the DC or and Their whole structure I think is based on the indigenous people of the world. I MEAN WE ARE FAMILY ORIENTED. We do have superheroes AMONGST OUR OUR TRIBES. We have superheroes amongst our our storytelling. So it's for me. It's very important for people to understand that we are here We're still hiller. Still here and we will remain here in Jonathan to hold the spaces that you do especially in Hollywood is important in for you. What are some of your goals? What do you want to shake up? What do you want to bring more indigenous voice to? I WANT TO BE RECOGNIZED. Not only for my talent but I think in other indigenous people need to be recognized for their talent and understood that a lot of Hollywood is based on stereotypical Characters I mean. Our voice is usually written by someone. Who's not even part of our culture? But you'll have people like Georgina lightning. You'll have other individuals like that step. In and write the words that would be spoken by indigenous person or an idea process that that that that has our formation because I indigenous people. We think different We see things differently. And it's so important that that the mainstream people Seeing and here you know from us through us not just works at the slum non native individual gave us so For me to try to break that stereotype I mean majority of my career has been based on playing stereotypes. But there's a small window of opportunity where there's a character there's the actor and there's the person and it's so important writers directors producers. See us as a person first and then recognize as
Extreme market volatility is here to stay
"It's time to business now with the financial analysts Lewis Kipah. Good morning to you. Louise Good Morning. Gene Wilder volatility in the stock market. Yesterday tell us more about that. Yeah seems extraordinarily stock markets in the US. Close fool percent lower yesterday yet. Another crazy day. They were up six percent Monday. Tuesday Wednesday over Monday was a huge day. Oh she's a with a huge day down when staying with another huge out says they know the huge day down extreme volatility the likes of which we haven't seen since the great financial crisis so the question is what is this telling us what it's telling us is no one has a clue how the virus pays out we just don't know we know that the virus is spreading incredibly quickly. Just look at the number of people infected. Just look how quick pit spreading around the world but this sort of financial and economic data is taking. You know we'll take a long time to catch up having said that we all seen companies. You know warn about profits and Goldman and J. P. Morgan the two massive American banks this week And we have You know we know some sectors you know we talk about transportation and travel and Alan Industry the U. The US transport index shows. You quite how much you know airline stocks etc Phoolan. That's bound a twenty cent. We have a An airline industry expert record. This is GonNa hit the Allen Industry something like global industry something much of a hundred billion dollars office than starting to get the secondary and tertiary effects. You know we had TV the big UK booed cost yesterday saying but not suppo- unsurprisingly This thing in advertising and And in eight pool that thing advertising down ten percent so we know the Allens all flying though share prices are being hit but like I said we're starting to see the ripple effects through the economy. I'm not yesterday was a big shock to walk his shelves in it. For example percents. So you know in a way. The extreme volatility of the stock market's tells us the everybody doesn't know how important how significant is far. It's GONNA be And McConnell the governor of the Bank of England has been assessing how it will hit the UK economy. Yes and it was really interesting about this scene. The Federal Reserve in states emergency rate cut earlier this week. Also percentage point if you look at what the markets are expecting best adjusting. Federalists make next week as well for home. One percent interest rate cup in literally a week. Now you know and I and you're seeing central banks. Whoever the world solar that lead and yet bizarrely the Bank of England were you kind of like no no. We'll wait wait to see what the data says. Well to be honest. It's GonNa take quite some time for the economic data to catch up with the you know the very fast spreading corona virus. I mean to be fair. Connie is on his way out and we won't have any bank having the governor very very soon so maybe you know that's the point we see The Right Cup but it is quite strange that he's he's not following. What central bankers all around the world to doing Let's have a look at OPEC because announced a large production cut to support oil prices but But if a problem there with Russia soon so so oil is like a folksy for the global economy right okay. Oil used in so many ways. It's the all twice is sort of like a prop demand for oil is approx proxy the economy. So what if I told you I told you the lines? Cutting flights people are flying around the world. I'm surprisingly well. What planes us? Hey Ben jet failed. You know what we know about. You know people working from home and not getting mad cows or they're not driving to work that means less Petuous using 'cause all be things oil demand. Okay so you see the oil price cops twenty percent OPEC meeting yesterday and today. Down desperate to cools the oil price to go up heads. The Production Co. Quite a big production. Koch One and a half million barrels of oil a day but Russia thought ice came to go to to be on board. So you've got the internal politics of OPEC. The Saudis versus the Russians desperately trying to force a production Co. on Russia solace about it because they are profitable Russian oil businesses profitable as much oil price. And so so you in sort of in the background. Everything that's going on can economically. You've got this political squabble inside OPEC which could mean though I'm no production cuts a tool and not contain oil price guys. That for many of us may fill our cars. After the country pub dot would be a really good thing but It just shows a fan the ramifications of the corona virus geopolitically as well as economically Yup and finally though there is one hedge fund boss who is trying to keep the oil market going by putting his His employees into cars. Oh honestly I would swear I'm program but I don't want you to so I would just say who wrote some okay. So millions of people use the cheap everyday public transport. You do I do Georgina. I'm washing my hands. All these more regularly but you know. I'm still grazing with sheep. I think I'll be fine. You Know Corona virus spreads very quickly. It's not like the current events ties about three percent of people get the hardest is. Many people even have the virus with very very mild if no symptoms tool so even if you get a rotavirus it's not necessarily GONNA make you extreme meal. Everybody types of flus every so you know. I think we'll start to be using the Chew House. No one hedge fund manager. Who frankly they're the people that traveled the world all the time and the people he probably bought by Roy Device to the rest of us because what family skiing trips to northern Italy is to bring it up for the rest of us but no they can no longer that you use the youtube this toll victims because if the miniscule risk that they might get great advice and they don't want it to be brought into the office it's like it's like a little spurning the great. Tom Washed everybody else. All the other millions of ordinary Londoners. Who's the Champ Frank? What company refused to diffuse to take trab? Keep going on the cheap pretty short to do that. Without referring doubt it's written in the contract. Louise thank you very much
"georgina" Discussed on The Grid
"Should you might integrate into your own streaming I think it was really cool to see lots of new different challenges and ideas and I really liked the idea of of some of the things that happened with streaming together working together and doing little competitions and challenges against each other. I really like that. I really like the idea of building which broke broke together because so many time you streaming by a cell so I really like that where we had a couple people doing at like Polka folk. Bingo they had sort sort of Bankrolled challenges but against each other over a period of time with a certain amount of money and just making things a lot of fun. I really like that idea. I don't know if I'm going to be able to incorporate COPA Myself that's things like that. I I really really enjoyed because it just shows how far you can take things you collaborate which I really really like and Always absent aspects of Funds to the game slow so I really enjoyed that. The show had love creativity. It's funny because Poker Bingo. I thought With a grid it's so scattered because we've had cover aces and ten five off and seven. I'm looking for like you know four in a row today to say the the Grad right you have. Yeah maybe you're going to help with it though as six so anyway I wanted to ask about this particular hand that you started off with takes off when you one third place you got third place. You didn't win but you replace. Feels like much of a win win. There is like how many players in tournament I was almost nine ten thousand. I think it was in the tournament. That's coming in like in like second in the W. S. O. P. Main that's that's insane. Third out of nine thousand. Jeez so anyway you got third out of about nine. Ten thousand. Obviously big bankroll boost. Yeah was there or anything that you started playing in after that score either because of extra bankroll or just even competence different types of tournaments that you started playing no not really in terms of different Biden's Just because I still think I am learning the game. I don't think I'm necessarily being the stakes that I'm playing playing at the moment so I tend to stick to the five dollar fifty two eleven dollar. Maybe twenty two tournaments when I'm playing online just because I still feel like a good so much delayed before I move at the stakes in consider myself like winning at this level. So binds lies. I haven't really changed a lot but I I when I first started at streaming house playing Tabards oneness because they they didn't take a lot of time and I think a sitting goes in particular. They didn't take a lot of time and I think they were a good way to since I've gotten to the stage where I'm at now I actually prefer Much like this woman. I preferred the slow deep stuck version one of the game. I seem to be doing a lot better in that recently. Is there like a lot of emphasis on twitch on how high the by is a lot easier to get viewers if you play a higher by hi. It's really more about getting those final tables. I would say both definitely for sure like the high buying students to get more views official but then also loves a deep run so I think the Kadyrov golden the what you really need on twitch to get the most viewers would be the highest buying on an empty. That would. That's like the if you're if you're somehow final table of like a twenty five K.. By twitched. That'll get all the views people and people. Oh come into the Stream But it's definitely a mix of both because everyone loves the front end a final table. Especially when you know how much it means to the streamer as well people tend to flock to the high. I binds Also we and also the fact is that the two are so related especially when you're talking about the Poker Stars Globally. Because if you're playing the higher by leads the field sizes are smaller so your chances of final tabling or so much greater even if the fuel Dr Tougher. That's the thing I play on poker stars. Pa Now because I live in Philadelphia and united to make a final table I mean not not because I'm the best great but seriously though it's it's really easy to make a final table win every tournament. You're playing and has like you know a couple of hundred people plus re entry or A. Don't get me wrong bookstores. PA is doing really well. It's exceeding expectations percents. But still the field sizes tend to be so much smaller. So it's really fun for getting better at the game because you're finding yourselves in the final table spots or final table spots so often so I really recommend people finding ways to occasionally get into those smaller field sizes. Yeah yeah no definitely that makes sense makes sense. Yeah I don't know how do you do that when you I mean I guess you could always just play like something with a cap or something but it must be more challenging Alan J to do that when you're playing on the on the main site especially in the series and it doesn't sound like something. You really crave either. You kinda like the huge field sizes where you have a chance to multiply your bye bye so much. I think when things like the end the series is. It's definitely really enticing. I really love the MTC full. I love the massive fields but at the same time I I do think you're right. I think you've got a lot more more chances of improving kind of running deep in a smaller field sizes and I do sometimes place things like sitting goes so there's like full dollar fifty one eighty man sin goes which sure quite good and then if you play the tournaments that kind of aunt it's on the massive field but they'll still have a thousand people in the mid. It's not like three four five thousand people. Sometimes it can be sort of five hundred thousand can hop load as well and you learn a lot if he run deeper in that too. You're really good at getting. Dj Reggie on all the different venues. INSTAGRAM twitter twitter. Nobody took your your prized handle. Yeah I like how. It's like both Georgina James and also good job. Yeah for sure. I didn't actually notice. Oh it. It didn't really click that. Jj Aj also could mean good job in a in a sort of gay even perspective. It wasn't until I think I this is really Elliot. I rated the proposal channel and James Cooled me. Good Job Reggie and I thought wait a minute what. I wasn't something that I noticed we. It's a it's a happy coincidence instance. Oh by the way a lot of people are listening to the grid might not know some of these terms like rating. So can you explain to us what that means. Oh yeah sure so on twitch when you stream And doesn't matter how many people that are out but at the end of the Stream you kind of press stop streaming and then instead of just just going immediately offline leaving your viewers in sort of a limbo with black screen on your channel. You can send them to someone else so so you can kind of say. Hey everyone I'm streaming but you know what so and so that's still playing poker and I really like them. I really like that channel. So I'm GonNa show you the content and if you like it and you can stick around and maybe checkout them the necessary as well so rating is basically sending your views at the end of your stream over to someone else's channel and they can go watch them instead. Ulster offline. I'm fascinated by this as So many of the streamers that I know when I ever I go to channel they're either streaming or or hosting someone. Is that something that can be automated so that if like you're sleeping you can constantly be hosting you really kind of have to actively do it. No you you you can set it up automatically. So there's an alto host feature on twitch and you basically add like list of people you can just add as many people as you want and and it'll if you're offline it'll host someone Essentially randomly from that list. Who happens to be online so you can have someone sort of on on your channel at at all times to make sure that the content keeps flying and it's just a nice way to keep the community build the community together as well when you're friends with the Stream is in you get to showcase other people's channels that you really enjoy to automatically randomized? So is there a version where you get picked your friends in order of how much you like them or is that just going to get due to political. So that's why they do it randomly. Well I think there is a ranking system to it as well so you can list from top to bottom anelle sort of go through one by what. I'm I'm pretty sure that's possible but the thing is even if you did rank your friends based on how much you like them. I don't think that ever going to know because that list is just for your miserly. No I don't think anyone Nelson access to be seen as they should be. Okay Oh what's your rankings. Nine just kidding and I can I ask you that. That's on the list of prohibited questions on my list but seriously the it is really a fascinating Subculture within a subculture twitch. I love to hear more about these things as I. I find it so interesting. That there's these two competing hierarchies and coulter's of poker which has already very hierarchical because people are interested in what stakes. You're playing bankroll. You are how much money you want. And then this other one where it's like. How many viewers you have? And how many subs you have and they collide and I know you love the community and it seems like a great community. Is that ever awkward. That it's like so numerical like when when you're rating people do people usually read people like a similar size audience where you kind of try to do both like you get helped by somebody bigger than you and then you help somebody smaller than you. It's very interesting I do do love to the community and the dynamic can be very interesting just because even with saying is like like rating like you said if a big stream it rates you than you rate someone swollen excetera because the nature of twitch and I guess the purpose is it is a competitive environment because you want viewers to watch you. NFL watching you. They're not watching anyone else. That's the theory so when you finish streaming you end up writing someone else. You're essentially I dunno sending your views to someone who they might prefer to watch over you in future which then drops you you'll view so it's it's a really odd dynamic dynamic but I also think it's I think it's really great that even know that competitive dynamic does exist that everyone is still serviceable two of each other? I do tend to try in a raid people who are like a smaller stream Than myself because you have no idea how much of a boost in how I should make someone's Day when you send them Like I remember when I was listening to ten beers myself in someone sends you fifty viewers. And you're like oh I got this is the Vest Ama you just see the reaction they have. It's is just ask certain prices and the thing is with them with the dentistry M- competition that we had this not so many news streamers who is still just starting out so going a little options that which is is a very great but yeah the whole dynamic of both supporting each other and competing against each other onto which I think is really great and somehow it works really well altogether Being competitive in that sense with like things like I think that's fascinating because you know that's really a metaphor for life as well as you can. Dan Support people in ways in which they might. You know take a client from you or they might you know end up getting an opportunity that you've got in but overall having a philosophy of of abundance that if you make those connections and you build the community it's going to end up coming back to you because people then see you as a useful wonderful person who's introducing them to new things things you gotta look at it that way not only in twitch but also in life so feels like these these twitch community is finding out this lesson in a really like hyper turbo way which is super cool. I think it's really great to because for me. It took me like years and years to learn that last night and I'm like wow like he's like twenty two year old. Twitch streamers like dislike. Learn it in three weeks because that's but that's the direction right. We got to learn these lessons even faster. Still a chance to talk about your Bob because it's actually a very confessional. All style you wrote a few letters to yourself about your life and the things that have been happening to you one of them starts with you broke up with your boyfriend of almost five years you signed a contract contract to work for poker stars and this was just kind of a a message to yourself about all of these major teams that have been happening to you in the last year. Can you tell me a a little bit about your writing. And does this confessional style also come up in your. which channel am Sir? It's very funny. You mentioned this because I decided to sort of blog dog because of the fact that so much that had happened last year and it wasn't something I really done before and I thought it'd be another outlet for content creation. The only thing is is that I'd mentioned onstream before. But Not really that much and it took me a really long time to finish writing these these blogs. Because because.

"I was injured that year and Back at the end of the Meat Road Louisiana downs. John's and I've kind of followed that pattern for the last two years This year I went to Delta downs after Louisiana downs finished and I was kind of on the fence fence about where I was going to go. I was thinking about seeing Delta down but I I didn't have any business there so I decided about Two weeks into that meet actually that that wasn't going to pan out and started coming over and working horses at the fairgrounds like I've been doing every year and just being as optimistic as as I could going into this meet. It's it's usually really tough. There's a lot of really good writers here a very strong jockey colony But this neat has I started out really good and about ten days before the classic I won an allowance race on pound for pound over at Delta down which was kind of his prep race to get him ready for for the stink and it was just a really exciting moment for me. I really wanted to win it I I did ride pound for pound last spring in a craze and ended up running back in so I really was grinding to not let that happen again this year. Your your your background.
