"And he started to get some recognition as a great builder and maker of violins, a great craftsman. He did, and he was still kind of living in the shadow of the Amadis, but when Nicola Amadi died in 1684, by this time, everyone said, this guy is Cremona's best maker of violins. Yeah. Which, since Cremona was the world capital of violin making, they were made elsewhere, but Cremona was like the place where the best were made. The creme of the Cremona. Right. That made him the world's best violin maker, and he hadn't even entered his golden period yet. Yeah, and he was making more than violins. He's making cellos and guitars and mandolins and harps, pretty much anything with strings. Except harpsichords. Who knows? He might have made a harpsichord. I'll bet that'd be worth a lot. Probably so. All right, should we take a break here? Yes. All right, we'll get into more craftsmanship right after this.

"Why private credit? Yeah, so I think, yeah, I think it's actually a good kind of compliment here, because as Ramon was saying, bringing these treasury yields on chain, that is, I think everyone would agree, that's largely a product for crypto native investors, right? So people who are already on chain, because for the most part, you know, Aldo's doing, they're literally giving you a BlackRock ETF and they're adding 15 bips and then saying, here you go, now you can buy it on chain. So people from the off -chain world, whereas in traditional finance, they're not going to be taking their dollars and bringing it on chain to buy the Aldo product, generally speaking, I would think. I mean, as like a default case. However, because not as always is, it's very, very publicly available. It's really, really easy for anyone to try to find, to get access to the rate already. The private credit thing on the other hand, it's actually very hard to access, generally speaking, especially for a more like kind of normal everyday investor, it's very, very difficult to access. And so, you know, this is sort of the whole other end of the spectrum where it's not public, it's very hard to access, and it's very bespoke too. And it takes sort of a lot of expertise to be able to look at these deals and decide whether or not they're good or not. And so that's where like, we actually, again, with like our whole thing, we want to bring it to people who are outside of the crypto space into the crypto realm. And so offering these private credit deals, you know, we want to bring investors who aren't already into crypto and bring them on chain through an asset. Can you give us an example of a private credit deal? Just so, I mean, a lot of people might not know exactly what private credit means. Yeah, yeah, totally. So, you know, really private credit is just doing lending to businesses by and large. And so, you know, an example of a borrower that is on a girlfriend's company called Payjoy, they do smartphone financing in Mexico. And so, you know, you buy a phone from them, they'll pay for it, and then you pay them back over the next two years or whatever, and you do monthly installments. And if you don't pay back, they happen to have software on the phone that will shut off your phone. And so everyone wants their phone to work, people pay it back. And so you can do that with tons of businesses all over the place. You know, that was sort of a specific fintech lending business, but you can do it with invoice receivables, you can do it with real estate, you can do it with all kinds of stuff. Both of those tend to focus on fintech lenders as our main borrowers, but that's just the rough idea of private credit. And private credit as an asset class, by the way, has just been growing like crazy. And this is, I would say generally, a really exciting time for private credit because as the rates go up, that actually pushes up, that's like the floor of rates that every business in the world needs to pay. And so all of the rates that everyone has made have gone up by basically four or 5 % in the last couple of years. So you have really high quality companies offering 10 % plus yield. And of course that is going to take on more risk than going to the treasuries, but it's also much higher yield, you're not talking at 10 % plus. And in a world where the stock market is kind of questionable and you're not really sure is this going to be a good year or a bad year, people are starting to reallocate their portfolios to things like bonds, then private credit also needs to be really attractive. And you have people like KKR and BlackRock, everybody's really doubling down on private credit now. This is kind of like a golden period of private credit or the golden age. And so we think this is a great time to be offering private credit to people. And we're going to still be doing it fully on chain. We actually, I'd say different than a lot of other places, we want to be focusing actually kind of more away from the crypto native investors into a more mainstream investor. We're going to be trying to take advantage of things like layer twos and account abstraction and embedded wallets to make the experience really, really seamless. And we want to bring that kind of normal mainstream investor and then barely even realize they're doing everything fully on chain in a self custodial manner, but get access to this deal that they can't get anywhere else. And so then I think that's a good way to bring more people in, because again, it's not this thing that can just go on their Fidelity account and get. It's something that's unique to what we're doing. And also in terms of investors, if we can take capital directly from investors anywhere in the world, there's all sorts of payment process and fees that don't have to take place on chain. And then eventually we can get all these other benefits of interoperability and transparency and stuff that Robert's been talking about. I want one actual other thing that I think might be worth mentioning to our listeners is the private credit market, say in 2022 and 2021, a lot of it was actually serviced by banks like Silicon Valley bank. And I think once they had their explosion in February, it became clear that a lot of these credit opportunities had to be funded by like fully private entities versus like pseudo private entities, like a FDI insured bank. And I think like that has contributed just in a way that to the boom. I mean, Blake, it seems like that has been like one of the big drivers I've heard of.

"On financial news programs. How much should I allocate to one thing, how much should I allocate to another, isn't that just highly dependent on who you are, how old you are when you are in life? Yeah, I mean, obviously, when you do wealth planning and financial planning, you have to determine what you're spending patterns are and you have to actually have a plan, right? But regardless of that, if you think about how a portfolio should be constructed, an equity portfolio should be one's best ideas, right? An exposure to different markets at different times. And there are some great and obvious ideas. A great example today, which we never talk about right because we're so focused on the U.S. and on AI is just the fact that right now you've got foreign stocks at their cheapest level as cheap as they've been back to 1935. You've got the dollar at its highest level and rising recently right due to the rates and yet no one talks about putting money overseas right now. And I think it is a give me. And that's an example of where you do asset allocation. But it's not. And so what's going to happen, I think, over between now and the end of several months from now, is people to begin focusing on 24 and they're going to want to have higher equity allocations than they do right now. Have you been basically building your equity slice or are you basically even weight when it comes to places like private credit that still offer a tremendous amount of yield? Well, let's talk about that. So we've been slowly moving up our equities in terms of our allocation to them. But the point you just made is extraordinary. And again, think about it from an investment store to point of view. If you can get in the fixed income market and equity like rate of return and sustain that for the next three to four years, should you do it? Absolutely. And private credit is a great example. You know, bank loan products, a variety of mortgage related reads, things like that are yielding between 12 and 14% due to the illiquidity right now. And the credit risk that was there in O 8 is not there now. These are the kinds of things that should be put into portfolios on the fixed income side. The other thing I wanted to mention is that because you've touched upon this in a variety of your programs this week is people who are focused on deposit rates or focused on one month yields are going to miss the fact that now is the time to move their duration out and actually build Brazilian portfolios and fixed income that hold for their cash portions hold those rates for longer. Given that that's your belief, you think that rates are going to come down. Is this period of time a golden period? Ironically, even though the chop feels not particularly golden in any way, shape or form. But are you seeing this period where you have an opportunity for outsized returns that won't come again after this period ends after rates return and normalize? Right, that's right, Lisa. I mean, you just talked about it in private credit. You're going to see the same thing in the bond market because we are investing into a slowing economy. There's no doubt that the fed action, what's gone on with banks, in fact, even the resolution of the debt agreement that we're talking about this coming week, maybe. That's going to be take away stimulus. It's going to take liquidity out of the marketplace after it happens. So all of that's going to slow the economy. So we're now talking about investing for 2024 looking over the horizon to slowing economy to what the market will look like next year. And that's really what's going on in the markets right now as far as we're concerned. David, you mentioned opportunities abroad and you threw out some interesting numbers. And I just want to work through them with you. Yeah. Dax is at a record high today. Euro stocks 50 year to date is up close to 20%. Someone's buying it. Oh, no, I'm talking about emerging market equity specifically. Obviously, those markets right now just go there. That's happening there because Chinese data started to disappoint and some people reluctant to chase that story. What is it about EM for you that works? Well, what works is that you have a lot of companies that are operating whether it's in Brazil or in China right where the earnings stories are actually picking up markedly. We saw a bunch of good even earnings from Internet stocks in China and they're being completely ignored, right? So we're overweight in that market because you're buying there at an incredibly good valuation in Brazil. Same thing. You're buying they've done a great job. Real yields there are 9% rates are going to come down. There are beneficiaries of the Chinese market, right? And they're going to, and they're going to benefit, I think, in terms of their stock price appreciation. But you have to do this in anticipation when it's not fun to do it. That's when you have to do it, right? And that's the same thing you were talking about with AI, which is you have to think about which companies are going to benefit by building an AI department the way they've built their IT department. Those companies that decide to use it are going to be the beneficiaries of it. And you can identify them. How do you identify them right now? Well, you think about just think about this. You think about let's say a consulting company. I can't name the whatever. They might not be able to say. How is it that they're going to write modify the business that they're going to provide to clients? They're going to teach AI. They're going to help companies build an AI. So in the consulting industry, you're going to find that. Companies that actually go out and build models using AI in terms of financial services. And you can identify who's doing it because they're going to talk about it. My joke internally is that AI will tell you who's using AI. And that's what I mean literally. You'll be able to see which companies are actually using it. And that to me is going to be a determinant in how do you go about investing? Let's go back to Walter riston, who would say that U.S. multinationals have international exposure. There's a small startup in Cupertino where something like 60% of revenues of apple is foreign revenues. Can we go back to the old days or if people can buy U.S. multinationals is a foreign proxy? I'm not exactly sure because of the valuation difference. Let's flip it around and talk about energy stocks in Europe. They're saying in a 40% discount to energy stocks in the U.S., which would you rather own. They're both multinationals. The big dividend. That's exactly correct. So my view is you have to be conscious of valuation right now, everyone is very focused on the U.S.. When we look at 2024, I think people are going to be focused on global investing much more than they are in U.S. investing. Interesting. David, this was great. And wonderful. I've said this a few times this week already, but great to see you in person. Yeah, I love the fact that, yes, exactly. It's fantastic. And Jonathan, you need to invest in the company that makes a dessert spoon. I agree. I think that's going to make that happen. Is that at the top or is that just a tab? You're doing good. Thank you. Keep doing that. Appreciate it. I like the small ones. They've invented a city global wealth, free shared it. Let's get to the Euro. Just briefly, one O 8 on the Euro against the dollar present, the guard speaking to the media at the moment. The ECB needs to buckle up and deliver the inflation target. Interest rates still need to be sustainably high. I think that's a key word sustainably high. They're determined to deliver their 2% CPI target. Now remember this is a single mandate Central Bank Tom and that target is 2%. So it's Friday. I wonder if you of the Bank of England's listening It's like, we got a toughen up and get

"Took the lead on 13 minutes. I think it was Curtis Jones slapped a shot, which was blocked fabinho fed big verge. You headed right across the face of goal, and I really mean the face. I said Liverpool on the respect to kings, Kenny dalglish, that a great true great Scottish, just a fiery, creator of the 70s, just the golden period of Liverpool football club, and the modern day Egyptian one, and it was made prodding home to touches, ultimately from virtually the goal. And these records Davi with this goal, these in Harry Kane territory where every bloody goal feels like at least one record is tumbling 9 successive home games scoring a record. 8th player to rack up a hundred goals at Anfield, a 186 total goals in his career for Liverpool now level with Steven Gerrard. I mean, we praise him every bloody week, but it's almost when you saw that just the consistency, the consistency, the consistency of his brilliance. It's ineffable. Yeah, 30 years old, you know, so much experience, so much brilliance. It's been written about in several circles that are we're starting to see the beginning of the decline of most Salah. If this is decline, then long May he continue to reign. This was a, this is a guy who you look at his fitness, you look at his speed, you look at his guile, you look at his intelligence, you look at his technique and you think he can continue to score boatloads of goals, you know, well into his mid 30s. Oh God, bite your arm off for that kind of decline is all I can say, but the actor scoring did lead Liverpool to take the foot off a bit, Brentford organized confident came to life, dominated possession, lovely statue flashed up at halftime. Trent Alexander Arnold since moving into that hybrid midfield role April 9th is now first in assist, chance creation, possession, one touches, and more. But the reality was, Liverpool's midfield, even with him, had no control of this game, it was Brentford, create most of the danger in that second half of menace. I mean, how bad did it get that alesson was booked at home for time wasting as Liverpool fans entertained themselves by singing about the king's brother that Andrew is a nonce, men and. To the tune of Casey in the sunshine bands give up. David, I can't think of a sunnier song set to horrific lyrics, a horrific truth, if you will. Than that. It will nonce is just some mild for Prince Andrew as well. Is he still a prince or have we taken that away from him? Yeah, that seems mild. Liverpool 6 successive Premier League victory, clean sheet for the first time since it's March 3 points, takes him to the brink at the top four, they keep winning, united have games in hand, but Klopp, it's amazing watching me and pumping his fist, but also I've never seen this movie before, took a deep bow while waving his hat to the cop in a very kind of dickensian Victorian street scamp style. It showed anything. Cheeky chant. You know, the Koenig. Just shades of 2020 21 all over again, or at least some positive vibes going into the summer rebuilt account, but I say this often. It's my only life truth that I offer you list. There's never, ever, ever, right off Liverpool football club. I have many times in my life. I can show you the scars after we put. The other team still grasping at a top four spot Tottenham. They beat Crystal Palace one nearly London Derby between Spitfire pilot reincarnate Harry Kane, an actual Spitfire pilot, Roy Hodgson, more of a Spitfire mechanic, I think. But this one was all about Ari and his first half injury time he found a pocket of space and hit a swiveling volley from the left all the way to Petro poro out on the right. He then thundered into the box where he proceeded to elevate and latch onto a ball from the aforementioned poirot, scoring his 209th Premier League goal. It really was sort of a classic striker's goal, taking him past Wayne Rooney to become the Premier League's second all time leading goal scorer behind only Alan Shearer, and that was that big day for Harry, much needed win for Tottenham. Got incredible clash. Mostly because of the age chasm between the two managers spurs interim interim. Ryan Mason is 31 years old. Palaces interim Roy Hodgson is 75, 43 years and 300 days between these two blokes, biggest gap between two managers in Premier League history, she really was grandad the Gates grandson fair. English version of Fred savage and Peter Falk in the princess bride and this game very much a fairytale for Tottenham after that tragic comedy of their defeat to Liverpool last weekend. Lots of players dropped by mason bold moves kulu, Eric dyer amongst those left out, but it was Harry Kay, who in honesty, a bit of a snooze of the game. Played the role of Wilson in a game Montoya, scoring on the cusp of halftime. It was just a stunning goal. The way he created the danger instinctively bringing up ball down, slapping it out, no look into the space on the right poirot, ran on Kane continued to run poro found them, headed home with certainty. David, hundredth home girl. Again, these guys, this is the territory he in salary. Every goal is many records. For him, hundredth home goal and he passed Wayne Rooney for second most goals will determine the Premier League 209 in just 317 appearances. Only Alan Shearer now stands ahead of him in the all time Premier League scoring list with 260 goals and Kane screwing at a clip 0.66 goals a game. My math is a bit crap listeners, so maths teachers listening correct me. I think it means he needs just 79 more games to score his record goal. He's not going to buy Munich is really the point I'm trying to make is he here, David. He's staying in our Premier League, and that record, and that record will be his fitness permitting. You know, he's a classic player. He's a throwback player in so many ways rod. There are very modern elements of his game the way he drops back his ability to pass the ball. His tactical mouse. But just this finish, you know, of all the games to break that record, this was just the perfect style of goal. A classic number 9, a classic center forward goal, leaping and just finishing with the confidence that you can not imagine many other players currently playing in the Premier League, being able to do. It just was beautiful, beautiful stuff. Spurs, been a first half for a show, and this was just a 6 time war season.

"Outlooks in the equity market was, well, maybe 26 years ago as well. She's chief market strategist for crossmark global of Texas and beyond Victoria, I have never seen the jumble of outlooks. You guys are in the trenches on this. What do you say to scared people moving into next year? Well, Tom, I think when we talk to our clients, we've been doing these symposiums around the country and it's their number one concern. What do we do for next year? And we tell them, look, you have to take a balanced approach right now. We know that when you look at the economy, we've got some positive elements going. The consumer is still strong. The labor market is still strong. You've got buybacks coming in. You've got seasonality. You have some things that are good foundations for the economy. And on the flip side, it's all the stuff you've been talking about this morning. We know we're going to have slow and growth. There's concerns about earnings estimates. We've seen EPS growth estimates come down by about 5 and a half percent so far this quarter, that's double what you typically see. There are concerns, obviously, you have a shallow recession. So you have to be tactical and have a balanced portfolio in order to take advantage of what's going on in the market at any particular time. We don't want to be too heavily weighted one way or the other. The concept back, how many times have you had that Philip Hildebrand of BlackRock, saying the following central banks are unlikely to come to the rescue with rapid rate cuts in recessions. They engineered to bring down inflation to policy targets. We are underway nominal long-term government bonds in each scenario in a new regime. Victoria, can you speak to that call from BlackRock? Yeah, so look, I mean, Jonathan, you know that I manage fixed income portfolios as well as being our market strategist and show in our portfolios. We've been extending duration. We've been going in to investment grade corporate bonds. Look at what the spreads have done just in the last month, ten year financial ten year bank spreads have come in almost 40 basis points. So we talked before about getting that duration in because we knew yields were going to come down. We thought spreads were going to come in and that's exactly what we've seen. Obviously, we think they'll probably be some more widening as we go into next year, but I still think it's a good place where you can invest because you're going to have steady cash flow and you have a maturity date, fixed income investors remember they have an out with their bonds, unlike in the equity market. So I do think that it's a place that you can invest. I think you'll get some good yield, some good cash flow and when you have a lot of volatility in the equity market, it gives you a place to hide a little bit. So in other words, you continue adding to the position, even though there has been this incredible rally. We do. I think you have some opportunity there. Now you have to be smart about it and you have to do just like you have to pick your stocks and the equity market. You have to pick your places you want to be in the bond market as well. But I think you can find some areas where you buy it positive yield to maturities. You have sufficient cash flow. That's a good place to have an allocation in your portfolio. Victoria Fernández has always wonderful from crossmark global investments. Send out best at bob style. Once bob back Tom and bob. To a few weeks ago, his lights out. Yeah. He knows coming up shortly. Matt lazarillo for a Deutsche Bank, Matt lacetti of Deutsche Bank. So there's been some really great calls this year and thinking of Mike Wilson on the equity market. I think maybe cities Andrew Holland horse coming out very early. We're going to get a series, a sequence of big hikes, prayer on the yield curve. The first to make the inflation call for 23 before it became very, very fashionable. And he and Peter hooper and their team not only put the call, but also the X axis on it. Their recession call, they make clear it was out there further. It was none of this. It's around the corner stuff. And they were real simple to get out to 23 and into 24. Which may be the biggest question for him. Does he push out even further? Is he going on the max ketner point to raise earlier? This question of what does a prolonged recession do? Is that negative or positive for risk assets may be positive in the short term from Julian Emanuel's perspective? Longer term, what does that mean about the nature of the recession? And no, doctor of rem Maxwell company, right? Yeah. That's exactly right. There was not alone. I think a lot of people are starting to join him just looking at the incoming information. I mean, it's completely devoid of this, but the United Airlines is the largest airplane order ever. I don't even know what that means. That was possible. Earlier on when we talked about it. As well saying surprise it was better than we thought. It was these are two airline data releases. Do you think he flies for free on United? The airline business though, Tom to your point. It seems to be very unique in that sector right now. The amount of money that people are willing to spend on flying still. What still this year and into next as well? If people are still willing to spend that though, then what does all this talk about the lack of demand with respect to travel with respect to the oil picture of people are prioritizing travel? Walking Stanley that talked about a golden period for some of the airlines into next year. I forget who it was precisely, but a lot of people still bullish on that segment. Because certain guys are willing to spend serious amounts of money. Really? You're just trying to rub it in. I think business class seats to Paris.

"The movement of the crowd started to sway back and forth, and then once the surge started, there was very little that anybody could do to get out of the way.

Russia has suspended the agreement to export grain out of Ukraine and is paused any movement of ships out of the area.

There are calls for the United Nations again to try to broker another deal. U.S. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says her husband Paul is making progress in the hospital after surgery for a fractured skull when a man attacked him in their San Francisco home.

With lifesaving that he was able to access his phone and make that call. And ABC or NBC, I should say investigative reporter and meet the press today has heard here on Bloomberg says the suspect, well, he has a profile. This individual went to the alt right far right type ideology that we've seen talking QAnon talking pizzagate and then just a lot of very anti semitic postings. And the FBI's issued a warning about the possibility of a lone wolf type incidents like this on politicians and election officials in the next two weeks. Again, Lula has taken the election in Brazil and is expected to speak within the hour. In San Francisco, I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Brian. All right, thanks very much. Let's get to our guests. It is Kamal shrikumar president at Sri Kumar global strategies. Sri, it's almost never, in fact, it is never that you see a sitting president in Brazil lose. So this is quite a big deal and it's a huge victory for the left with Lula getting back in. What do you think it means for the economy going forward? I think Brian, I was quite sanguine about either candidate winning because Bolsonaro in the last few years has been good for business and Lula during his two terms was unexpectedly positive for private business. They thought that as a Workers Party leader, he would lead to more of socialist policies and that the economy would go down. Instead, it was a golden period for the Brazilian economy during the Lula presidency for two terms. Keep in mind that it was only during his successor Dilma Rousseff, who was Han chosen by him by the way, that everything went downhill. So here is the real crux. It doesn't matter who wins, but the loser has to accept his defeat and the question now is his Bolsonaro going to accept it is military going to accept it and do we have a peaceful transfer of power. That to me is much more important than which candidate wins and I'm very happy with the Lula victory just as I would have been with the Bolsonaro victory. Absolutely and that smacks of some other country as well where perhaps either going presidents don't like to accept the verdict of the people. But in this case it would be going to the old Clinton hogs saying of they've democracy changed anything they'd abolish it. Does it have a market implications though? It may have market implications to moral risk in the sense that markets, I think, had a marginal preference for Bolsonaro over Lula. So you may see Monday perhaps Tuesday, the development lead to a drop in the market value. But if you give three months or 6 months and when, again, when Lula takes office at the beginning of the new year, assuming the transfer is smooth, things are going to be much better off after all. Okay, so it hasn't been much of the big macro story. So let's get to that. We got the fed meeting this week and the BOE. So it's going to be pretty interesting week. The latest data doesn't seem to be showing that inflation is cooperating.

"Liquidity and how has it changed since the last period, and is there a problem spot for any of the positions we might have on? And we want to be the first to get out, not the last to get out, because that's always when you have a problem from a trader's perspective. And so yeah, I think liquidity is down. It's not evaporated. There's plenty of liquidity in most of the big markets, but it's something you really have to keep an eye on. Ken, I want to go back to, you know, what John Henry and you and Monroe trout and others invented. And it was a time when there was an actual Sharpe ratio, an actual risk free rate. And of course, that all went away to evaporated in the searing, nothing taleb mentions that the gravity has come back to our physics. Do you shift what you're doing now? Because finally, we've got a real rate. Finally, we've got a risk free rate. Finally, we have gravity. Well, you know, I think the most important thing to look at is that we have significant inflation and significant inflation means that central banks have to respond. And that creates trading opportunity. That's the way I think about it. Sure, we're generating on fed funds significant income whereas a year ago, there was none, right? I think the most interesting comparison I can give you is if you look at the performance of equities from 2009 to 2021, there was sort of a golden period for

We're going to head to India now where tributes have been pouring in for the legendary Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar has died at the age of 98 born Mohammed Yusef Khan and what is now Pakistan. He began his career back in the mid 19 forties, The Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, said his death was a loss to the cultural world. Pakistan's Prime minister, Imran Khan, described Kuma as the greatest actor of his generation. Indeed, he won more awards than any other Indian actor during his long career. Well, Alec Mojang Joshi is a writer and broadcaster and an expert on the Indian film industry. First of all, just how great an actor was Dilip Kuma. He is one of the great actors off Indian cinema as a whole. I would think that drip Kumar would compete to be one of them or first of them and what made him so great. Do you think how seriously he took playing a role? How he internalized that role and how he gave it up in Ash? Uh, style. Of his own, which was unprecedented. His time was very, very natural acting but with a mix of very subtle. Melodrama in it. He fitted into a perfect imagination to win the audience says Psyche of a good actor. He was very classy. In the sense that he played it very suddenly he acted as if he was really being that role, but at the same time he was a method actor. And he is sort of, uh, brought in certain dramatic elements into it, especially in his dialogue delivery. So the way he, uh, narrated his role the way he acted. In his voice that became kind of a role model for the future generation of actors. All many of the big actors like, Give me me that button They took from his style of dialogue delivery. Right? So he was very influential. Was he in Bollywood? He was right there from the Beginning of even before the Golden period of Indian Cinema dawned, which was in 19 fifties. So his first film, I was in 1944, As you know, he's a Muslim is real neighbors use of Han and in those days Names were changed for popular appeal. Having a Muslim name would have what harmed his career with it. That was a perception at that time because of course, India is a majority Hindu community the produces Tended to give the Hindu name to an actor. He seems to have been incredibly versatile in the sort of roles that he was able to do. From what tragedy comedy dramas, big blockbusters. I mean, he could turn his hand to anything, couldn't he? He was very, very serious philosopher of performance. His seminal film came in the fifties. Which was daybed us, and then he played are frustrated rural lover. It's based on a iconic novel of the same name. He became an icon of tragedy. King And he was and this day passes a film, which has been made more than 10 times after independence. As the society was building up Changing for India was changing. Dilip Kumar became a faith of that social change. Was he not tempted to do any English language films or even act abroad? Possibly the lip. Kumar was so confident about his being in the soil of Indian performance. I think the lead, Kumar realized that his whole appeal lies in his reflecting Indian characters. So he didn't feel the need to go international. He went through a psychological problem and he came to London and he was advised to do light hearted roles. And that is what made him do Great fun films possibly record was so much Involved in performing. There's roll off his own soil. I think it didn't must must have occurred to him to go and do films with Hollywood filmmakers. Lalit Mohan Joshi, writer and broadcast there on the great Indian actor Dilip Kuma, who has died at the age of 90 Act..

I was wondering where you got that the beauty of it is. You can still ask dr. Debbie enjoy villani. Your questions and you don't have to be worried about being exposed to our sickness. Okay that's happening from the free animal. Radio app for iphone android and blackberry. What do you have coming up today. Laurie some states are are getting really strict very tough on people who abuse animals and they're also dramatically changing their list of what they view as pets or animals. It's not just dogs and cats and things anymore. This case involves a man who they say abused a fish take time different world. You said a fish right. I said a fish. Okay i cannot wait for that. Story dr debbie. Are you ready to go to the phones. I sure am. I am ready. Hi troy what's going on. I got a pit bull terrier and he seems like he has like a lot of anxiety for some reason. What kind of behaviors issue showing you. Well like she'll like try to tear up stuff in the house. While we're gone sushi's being destructive she having a house pee and poop in no no no nothing like that okay like if we lay something on the counter copy or something like paper pies papers show threaded up. Okay okay all right and then anything as far as she on beds does she know all this all right. Well you sound like you have a little troublesome child there when you first got this puppy. Can i ask you how. What kind of training method you used for training. I well when we first got her. We just When i took her aside to go she go outside. No problem then after that. Just go door whenever she wanted to go outside okay so she was pretty much. Just you took outdoors. Gave her praise and then was she restricted in the house at all during this. She have free rein rearrange in my house. Okay well the reason i ask. That is because when we have puppies. There's a great method called crate training that will utilize for a couple of different reasons. One is for the benefit of house training purposes because it helps Hats to limit their activity and their Their area that they're allowed to room in the home And then it teaches them to hold their elimination needs Until we take them out of the crate and they go outdoors. So that's the one. Benefit of crete training. The other benefit is that teaches them comfort in being confined into an area without having anxiety and fear and that can be a really important thing for any dog owner to develop. Even if you're part is really good and really sound with house training to have an animal that can be restrained in. A crate is good for travel purposes as good for potential housing boarding situations but also. It's helpful if we run into problems where we have destructive tendencies or sue. The hard. the hard thing is that you have a very energetic young dog and a lot of dogs really puppies until about a year and a half to two years of age so even though she may have things like house training down she's still got the mind of an infant so that means when we're left unattended. It's like. Ooh what can i do. I'm looking for something to do. I'm bored so that's where if we create training that's a really great advantage because then eliminates that opportunity because there's a rewards center in the brain that kinda lights up when a dog does something and get some enjoyment out of that that may be shredding things that may be barking at people. Running by that may be eating things Getting things off a counters Or out of the garbage can that they shouldn't so that really can be self rewarding behaviour which can be a problem because you can't be there to discipline them and say don't do that so So crate training. If that's something that we can facilitate may help you with all of the other steps we can do look at doing. But that's not the only thing. I want you to do not going to tell you just like your dog up. That's not going to be the solution. The things that we want to do for young dog is i wanna burn their candle down so the most important thing you can do is to exhaust the stock as much as possible every day and that just takes some of the energy down so that we have less tendency for her to want to be destructive and then the next thing is really set up to succeed so that means if you aren't going to be confining your crate that we do a basic toddler search through the house we make sure there's no food items down that garbage is six year behind a locking cabinet That we have access to certain rooms closed off if there is a risk that we can't secure that room for puppy Really make those efforts to not leave an opportunity for her to to fail the the leaving of the home. So there's there's dogs that have separation anxiety and the dogs. That are just bored and destructive. And i think for your situation that would be something we still have to flesh out discover. Jog said have separation anxiety have true. It's a behavioral problem And that's usually manifest within the first fifteen minutes of our departure They bark They eliminate they may become destructive Other dogs if the destruction happens later that may mean we just have aboard dog so one thing you can do set up a little camera and see win. The sniper problem happens and that helps you kind of gauge. The level of approach of how you need to address this So for me as far as for training a dog not to do those things that's really to eliminate those opportunities and then to teach them limits and boundaries and those can be done ways Some people use things like Noise cans like coins and cans. Squirt guns things like that There are different strategies as far as things like scat mats. Which are a little static maps that you can put on countertops and that keep cats or dogs from jumping onto countertops. If there's something up in that area and it's a mild negative of sensation it's kind of like a touching a light switch when you have staticky fingers in that can help as a way to safeguard those areas and train when you're not around and then a lot of it is Do you also have her in an obedience class. No not yet okay definitely. Let's do that. 'cause i think any puppy really ought to be an obedient class. That's ideally done before they're up to her age. I'd like to see puppies in classes when they're in that golden period of learning which has between eight weeks and sixteen or sixteen to twenty weeks but still her in something that that'll help teacher things like focus listening to you and it also is mentally draining. My dogs come home from obedience class. They are exhausted. More than when. I run them out at the park. And they're chasing balls So it really goes a long way if you get into some kind of activity like that as well okay. All right so you got your.

The next day is very much a mark of pride among beekeepers but you're not appropriate beekeeper until you've at least one and flexes yeah. That's a bad thing when that happens but if you work with do occasionally gets stung how's it. How's it going the beekeeping fund.

Dan Gordon's also with US dance and exercise physiologist is Anglia Ruskin University. He's also a Paralympian and it's going to world record and there was a lot of coverage in recent weeks about athletes using sports drinks and not been terribly good for their dental health. Yes about I think about ten days ago quite solarge raging study that was looking at elite athletes and they reported the dental health and elite athletes was was far far worse than the general population of Oh. The paper didn't fully attributed it to they wanted to make conclusions was they thought it was down to the con- sports drinks that are consumed which mostly these high carbohydrates looked sugar. How's your dentition during you got away with it. I think what an advocate in sports the practitioners do then just because you don't have energy to do the events no and I think in the end what they're really getting exposes has got to be greater scrutiny of the health of the teeth and the athletes when competing one of the things we have to do before we went to the Paralympics. We every athlete have dental check which sounds crazy things the limbic games actually you wouldn't think that teeth of that important but actually the worst thing you can have an. Olympic Games is fake and so one of the things that's really really being advocated. Now is that part of the Athlete Support Program Part of lifestyle management should be to actually monitor the health of the of the teeth warning people there. Is this risk they'll. They'll probably take more. Oh care about washing their mouth outs to get rid of that. I think yeah more used to math clean teeth more regularly for example as part of the training routine not so any questions about exercise exercise physiology how the body works sports and sports fitness.

Now you're saying yeah that's right so you might remember the event. Horizon Telescope a few months ago published the first image of a black hole or more pedantically the shadow of a black hole support and then I can do a full color movie of the black hole which is going to be really incredible both in terms of what it will teach us about astrophysics in general relativity and also just just super cool you can just you'll be able to watch your black hole on youtube or you could just watch SANTELLI programs which amount to much of the same no content visible whatsoever.

I'm his friend were. You're pretty you're pretty optimistic as well thank you that's very good areas and outgoing outgoing but we had a first series initially looking at a genius guy to Britain's traveling around minicar imagine like top gear meets. Qa but sort of exploring all the curious bits of Britain and the new series is called a genius guy to the age of Invention Sarah can I get back in on minicar go around the UK but this time it's quite chronological so looking from seventeen fifty thousand nine hundred and exploring Britain's discoveries and inventions in that period. Why did you pick that period because it's particularly golden period. There was some of the reason I I think it's the golden nature that period because if you look before that is sort of Britain still pre enlightenment before industrial times and then in that period of seventeen fifty nine hundred lots lots of invention discovers chemistry's discovered physics signed the word sign scientist comes into being Darwin Thompson so lots of great figures of science emerge any particularly stand out moment because there was are when you making telly programs they're always funny things that we never see on screen or or other things that are just well moments that you never thought you'd find yourself doing so so what am I stand up moments as she isn't a stand up moment for me but is a silent moment for the show so we visit the cabinet Cambridge and we get to hold one of the original cathode ray tubes at J J Thomson used. I was too much of a chicken to hold it. No I think it's like someone else's baby you can look at. I admire it but if you want to hold it no no no. I'M NOT GONNA hold the baby the big quite tempting to hold it and they go oops because the same thing sort of happened to me because because when I was in South Africa when I first went to South Africa when I was at a conference in this big American guy came up to me at the conference and he said tomorrow going to pick you up from your hotel and I'm going to take you somewhere and show you something something GonNa Change Your Life forever now. Of course you never met this guy you think I can arrange things and actually he took me to the University of the voters rand in Johannesburg where he's professor of Paleoanthropology. This is Lieber. Who's now been on this program. A number of times in this discovered not one not two but three new species of early human ancestor and he had in this wooden box the university the face the complete facial skeleton of the Taung Child which is the specimen which is the australopithecus holy type in other words all all of the Australia with specimens that we have early human ancestors maybe three million years ago so they're all compared to this one which was discovered by Raymond Dart at about one hundred years ago now and it's really fabulous. They've even got the endo cost the fossil remnant of the brain of this thing and I was holding this in my hands is three million years. Old is the only only one in existence and am I did get tempted to go whoops but Lee was very very cordiality hands undermine all the time. 'cause you think how this is just prices but I know exactly what you mean now for your home. If you guys in the studio we've got a little guess who that we run through these sorts of programs we give you a sequence of clues across the show and as the show unfolds unfolds we give you more of them and the first one. I've got here. It's it's an animal. Give you that much but can you work out. What makes this particular sound okay. That was the sound it makes any clues. you want to hear the other very fussy this lot. They won't hear it again. Okay anyone got any ideas seagull. It's not a bobby seagull. No okay more clues coming up eleanor. Let's kick off with this one view from Marianna. What which is the most intelligent insect do not base because maybe they well okay so I have been asked this before and this is always a really hard question because I am incredibly and I believe that all insects are incredibly intelligent in all sorts of different ways and we haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what insects can do it could be the case that we haven't even discovered the cleverest insect but if I was to choose one based on research about an individual it'll who's pretty clever. It might have to be the bees. I'm afraid some really cool research has shown that bees can tell apart the difference between different painting style so if you showed them a monet and Picasso you can get them to learn the differences and then be able to generalize to other paintings and also prefer. I don't know maybe that'd I'll be a follow up paper. I hope it would also they can tell the difference between people's faces and they can remember a face for two days which is incredible. There was also study that the the researchers at Queen Mary Invest of London published a couple years ago where they showed be another be rolling a ball into a goal and the be that was watching then how to get the B The ball into the into the goal and got a treat yeah it was social learning and more than that they they did a follow on from that which was even more cool so trained on one particular ball and they had other balls in the area which they blew down while they were learning but then in the in the second round they unglued the balls goals and the B. would learn the concept and then would apply it to closeable so then they would perform the same action but on a separate they weren't just learning out this ball goes in in in the hall they they could like generalize which is incredible if you think about it and what else could have favorite insect in the studio. Everyone should the CICADA. I know why you're going to come on prime number years. Don't every thirteen or seventeen years. Carter has emerged don't they they do to minimize the chances of their mating year. Coinciding with predators credited exactly that on a Friday afternoon these cicadas smarter than mice from Friday to look. Maybe even smart in nature eh provocative for Dan favorite insect realize possibly the butterfly just purely because I just love the whole process from Chrysalis the butterfly but actually just the sheer variety of butterflies just it's just mind boggling liotta amazing feats of navigation butterflies and monarch butterflies example all the way from Canada down to New Mexico geico kind of thousands of miles
