"How judgmental you. When you see your reflection. I'm why do some mirrors feel more flattering than others while creeper putty spoke to psychotherapist and author. Susie orbach and to mirror experts. Dr melissa cow. All about this. She started by asking what makes a bad mirror. What we call it a bat mira where is actually essential in your imperfection if you wanna put it that way and we see that. Come down to three points. Ease the angle of the mirror the tint of the mirror and the lighting surrounding mirror so the angle of mirror is the most flattering is when the mirrors actually slugging away from you so they lean on the wall and with a with a slight slant with the bottom near at you and the top away from you this actually magically elongate your legs a lot i love your use of the word magically. Yes so it gives you the proportion that you probably like to see. So that's a bit. More flattering then detained. Eddie probably know a normal mira has a green-tinted because of the irony has inside. That's probably the most unflattering way because it gives you that. So we're looking at a gross tint which is probably the best because he gives you a son case complexion which again is just suffering Updated dated legs and the sun kiss complexion. Yes go ahead. His son the lighting that is surrounding where you stand in front of the mirror. If you have a very strong lights above you a spotlight right above you is shining down on you. It's costing the shadow down so where your joy line you know. All your bags are all essential rated which end probably essential aging at the wrong places on what you're wearing. So the best lighting will be a dispersed like so imagine sunlight is very dispersed so it actually soft and all those that imperfection so ideally. You wanna lie this actually in front of you from the mirror and reduce the along some of the fitting rooms. There have got it right. They actually have lights to strips of flights either side of the mirror if softens the imperfection and to let you look a bit. You're clear on yourself. We live in an age of social media. Melissa i wonder understand whether the same principles apply to taking a selfie. Yes actually now. We have a lot of the selfie. Stick with a ring mirror. That actually Round your phone that is trying to create that effective spell about the line team so the light actually comes from behind your lens. So it's giving you disperse light. The best southie is way you actually angle your phone a bit lower down. You want to anglophone from waist down rather than top down. So you don't want to have the toll pass and take your phone at i level so you want to lower it down to your waist level or lower so to give you again back elongation theological. It's so technical. I just take the camera off in front of my face and click click there. You have it at a really important question here in your home. Where should the mirror spe- actually. I have good some tricks for myself too. I actually put any shadley share near my front door. Front have got a lot window. So it's It's so i do. Have some dispersed lighting. Which is good. And i had this heavy nearest so i didn't hang it so I put it on the floor so naturally you would leave the mirror onto the war so again giving me that angle. The only thing. I don't have i didn't have the orange humira. All the rose tints. I i have a normal mira but the angle right and the lighting right..

"Singing route. Two is a i can see on the co. You're smiling quite quite broadly. The singing all parts of it was what kept us. All going women made up songs. We picked a choon and everybody would just have guy when we just add lines and it helps to lift your spirits when you are working together on anything and i think that that was something that fills us with infusing gasa because it does get a bit flat when i first went there we had actual structures. We had benders that we lived in we. I lifted an ambulance thought was rosy times but then they made illegal to have structures on the common illegal to have fires on the common. And it just got harder and off because we aren't the sort of adapts on how to live without those luxury items as they turned out to be. I was going to say because in one sense. You're talking with smiles and warm memories wanting to help and rebecca feel strongly about this as well. How people remember this huge women's movement from around the world but the reception to you was mixed. I'm even got a message here. That's just came in so dodging hippies with zero understanding of global politics at rebecca. What would you make of that. Because that's that's one of the ones. I can probably read aloud. Yeah there's a lotta strong feeling. And they're always around social justice change. Occ messages on that. Why naive factor called the green and women accenture because well didn't share in the and the tabloids certainly put it in other ways. Yeah and it's really interesting. Because obviously i think it's naive site week. Women stink living somewhere flooring thousands of women around the country getting discussions about feminism and nuclear proliferation close to dinner tables every house in the country costing hundreds of thousands of pounds of damage to the american english governments across nearly twenty as it would be. It would be naive to say that was not a massive thorn in the side of the establishment and they didn't change the relationship between men and women and it didn't create a dialogue nationally and internationally around what we should do with weapons and how we should handle sows. military's clearly you can't send just one. Group has responsibility for changing basis. But you can you would be to say a massive campaign. The largest lead competence. Suffrage didn't have a huge impact on that. There's also that the you mentioned the tabloids. I think is really interesting that the tabloids particular incredibly bulent about lesbianism at the camp and things like that particularly on that but it goes up to that point. That wasn't even a public discussion around the fact that there one lesbians even now not so jeannie that can back in the bottle one of the ripple effects of greenham is that you know we all much more open about the fact that women have same sex relationships as well. Do you mind me the time. But civilly was something. That's one of the movements. That may. I saw lesbian on the tally on tent. And i saw it in the papers. I thought oh my god. I'm not the only one. I'm gonna go bad. That's might be that brought together for lofty ways into that. That primary relationship didn't have to come from that. Which is you can never go back from the its radical rebecca morton and sioux. Say speaking swimmer. Okay here's a question for you. All how often do you look in the mirror another question..

"But the idea of pushing a button miles away And murdering generations of people just was completely unacceptable to me and not was. That was my motivation. However when a goal there. I realized that i was a lot more naive than i thought. I thought that was a very soest inimitable and i got there and i suddenly realized arriving at yellow gains and talking to the women that i realized i knew absolutely nothing so it was it was really. It was an education. It was the style to my education as to the place that women have in the world and learning. That actually could say now. And we're not going to do this and we're not gonna have violence and we are going to look after each other and we're gonna look after our planet and i think that was the start of my education. Hold that thought for a moment. See we're going to hear a clip of some of the women explaining their reasons for staying at greenham. This is an eight pro. Nine thousand nine hundred eighty three. I was looking to hear about the campus when it first started. And i just came down. We'll to see what was going on and became emotionally involved and the women's peace come to me was that look death in the eyes and find some hope and strength to be able to find what seems to be the ultimate threats to our destiny where let us change see. Oh miserable day. But there's no real taste when i see i don't want to stay here any more in rolette because over. Its mess boys. You can see your sentiment here and we're talking about laughing and let you just create energy. i mean. sometimes it's hard to get up to begin the daily tool against cruise. It's guy i really enjoy. Being part of the for being here is to show that people can do things for themselves ordinary people. We started to call ourselves. Common women now not green and women who which puts over the idea of being very ordinary an ordinary people can do something about it and we all making the government. Think again we'll come to that in a moment but life there apart from the education a lot of that sitting around the fire talking to women from all sorts of backgrounds. But it was pretty hard as well. You know no running water freezing cold winters you did have to sort of stick out say absolutely however as you will properly discover and you have a group of women you become very creates if we made our own showers. We supported each other. We help teach to kind of find different ways of approaching things working together. It's incredible how actually you can make things work very well. We had sort of groups of women who sort of focused on what they were best start. Some women were really good organizing the processes of calm and so they set up so of food tents and showers and such facilities. Other women went and the fence everybody found well-suited them and they did that and together. We've owned a whole protest as as a whole load of individual women doing it their own way. I wanted to get back to rebecca as well though. Because i said you were five when you went. What are your early memories of going to the with your mom. I have my mom. We'd take faded pies de things like nightwatch where they with. Local women with sits in god tense the living that kind of really good sleep for that cruise.

Let's campaigns suffrage didn't have a huge impact on that will say that the you mentioned the tabloids i think is really interesting that The tabloids particular incredibly virulent about lesbianism and things like that particularly particularly by on not but it goes up to that point. That wasn't even a public discussion around the fact that there were lesbians even now. That's the genie can back in the bottle. One of the ripple effects of greenham is that you know we all much more open about the fact that women have same sex relationships as well. You might not the time but civilly was something that one of the women sets me. I saw lesbian on the tally on tent. And i saw it in the papers. I thought oh my god. I'm not the only one that that's my people that brought together for lofty wise to open bet. That primary relationship didn't have to come from that which is an tonight's toco i. I was reading so just a final thought from you. If i can't always reading from one of the women who who green say there's a debate about how effective it was in terms of its initial mission around nuclear and people do debate that that's a whole other discussion pops or a different time. But it's exactly what. Rebecca was just starting to say that there were bigger things to come from it around what women perhaps learned and some of the discussions around feminism. Do you think that's what if you know nothing about it. Do you think coming new to it. That's what you could take from it to are. You would have to be because you look at the whole science. The wet the role that women had back then. My mom's vowed to to obey my father. That was the way it walls that and then suddenly you've got us looking at prison the way that the prison service work because we as green women were were committing crimes and being convicted we coming into prison and we were saying the way that women were mistreated imprison and the the fact that women were imprisoned for minus sacks of small amounts of money is was not in incarcerating dangerous people away from society. Which is something. I believed it all so i think we have to look at the role that women played in society as a whole a lots of people are getting in touch with what it did for them as well in those different feelings that elicited some of them very positive some of them not so. But that is exactly what you remember. I'm sure as you will be marching and walking. Good luck forgetting there on friday. Thank you for taking time out of that. Walk rebecca morton and sioux.

But i mean. I still moscow correspondent. I am at least formally still very closely tied to russia. Yeah no it's a big big question.

Because i think this is about sending a signal to all journalists in russia. Not just the foreign media that you know. you're not protected. That free speech is is under threat and russia and that all of us who thought we were and do think we're doing the right thing by challenging. People with our microphones that that you know.

"The official reason is that this is purely. Tit for tat. The russian government. I got called into the ministry when i was eventually allowed back into the country that took twelve hours. First and foremost it took twelve hours of negotiations to stop them. Deporting me so. I sort of hung on in in the airport in moscow. I didn't get on a plane as were a lot of frantic phone calls being made to say this is wrong condemning essence. Saying you shouldn't be sarah out so after after all those those calls on my behalf eventually was allowed into moscow. But i was called into the foreign ministry the next day and i was told that my whole chapter of my life with russia was over that they wouldn't be renewing. My visa and i was being kicked out and they kept saying this tit for tat that russian journalists had been denied leave to remain in the uk and i was simply an equivalent so that the problem is that that journalists case that they cited that was two years ago and there was never any frustrating time. Never any jumping and screaming shouting about it and it's been quite clear that ever. Since my case became public the russian authorities have been very reluctant to name this russian journalist. So if it's tit for tat you know who who is this all about and why we never heard about it until now so it feels. It feels much more personal than that. It feels much more worrying. I think than that. This isn't the bureaucratic move at something. I think much deeper. We should probably point out. You're not the only bbc correspondent in russia. There's also your colleague. Steve rosenberg. Who is still there understand. Do you think being a woman has any bearing on it. I always say i'm not. I'm not a woman. I'm a journalist. You often get referred to in interviews and things kind of agenda becomes an issue and you sort of. Say this instance. I'm i've got a microphone correspondent but maybe the certainly a practical element to it. Some not necessarily you know just talking. Specifically about steve. Of course but actually this is a political move as well they know this is happening in the context of really serious deterioration relations to russia and the uk and when looking for a uk journalist target first and foremost obviously the bbc is the most prominent british news organization operating in russia. But also you know it's a fact of life that most british journalists are operating in russia excellent journalists really probing challenging challenging brilliant journalists and a huge amounts about russia. They also happen all of them. Pretty much be male and almost all of them to be married to russian so perhaps you know there is a practical practical element which is kicking me out is easier. I married to an englishman. I don't have that family tie to russia. So maybe the thought it'd be easier but certainly when i face the foreign ministry Last month i don't think they quite realize the depth of my own entanglement with russia the fact that they had such a deep personal relationship to the country going back many many years though it did take the.

I'll be in very different circumstances but somebody again changing country against their world but as as a very different circumstances we're told a threat to russian national security came back to uk short. She is sarah raynsford. Bbc moscow correspondent. And someone who's been living in in an reporting on russia for over two decades on the tenth of august over a month ago. She was told that she was being barred indefinitely for the protection of the security of russia and allowed into the country for the sole purpose of packing up her life and leaving but why her watch chance if any does she have now of returning. Salvadorian suit joins me now. Good morning good morning. Is this your. This is your first morning back. Yes it is. Yeah strange warning. I was going to say what's that feeling. The word back all because i haven't lived in russia and sorry in in the uk for twenty years. Basically i left. my first. Foreign assignment was to moscow in august. Two thousand and since then i've worked in russia and in other countries and but always going back to russia for two decades so coming to the uk even though foreign ministry. We're telling me they were sending me home. It doesn't really feel like coming home offices familiar. It's not it's not my home and you know. Russia was my home for very long time so it feels like i'm kind of more in exile than oh really yes and i'm sure well i've read that you would like to go back. Yes but i've been told very clearly by none other than the fsba security service that they don't want to see me back. I was. I was handed a piece of paper eventually. The border in moscow showing me to airport on august tenth untold the sign and it said that i was a threat to national security so it was obviously a shocking shocking moment. And i've kind of been expecting something. I've been given signals the for them that my situation in moscow is a little bit precarious. I've been put on short-term visas. I'd always had annual visas to make reputation. Visa always renewed up until about a year ago and they started putting them on three month freezers and two month fees and i was getting signals that you know that things were were not necessarily as they should be. But i didn't ever expect what happens when i tried to reenter moscow from bellarusse earlier. This last month now Certainly never expect to be labeled as a journalist as a threat to national security and the russian government keeps dismissing that part of the key ignoring that part it they keep saying it's just my visa not being renewed when it when it came to an end at the end of august. But it's not that it's something much deeper much more sinister frankly. I'm quite scary. Do you have any understanding what you need to put you in that position..

"Of services and safeguarding for the charity. Refugee action who was at birmingham airport until about last flight landed on sunday. Let's talk then to pay monir. Assad who's a labor councillor harrow responsible for the afghan resettlement program in the bar issues recent evacuated from afghanistan herself on an ara flight because she has family there and after a period of quarantine return to her job yesterday. Helping to start to sort out housing for the arrivals good morning morning. I just wanted to ask because you came to this country. We we three when you first came here. Yeah three is all very young c. You probably can't quite remember the welcome per se but how was it a warm welcome for your family who were again escaping very difficult time. Yes i think. My parents had a completely different experience to most refugees that come to the country. Now we'll have done the last years. My mom arrived with just the clothes on her on her at london. Heathrow and she spent the night outside. The app wore waiting for immigration Officials to understand what to do with as she was pregnant she had three kids by on the under the age of five But yeah My parents were very happy with the treatment that they got When they best arrived in actually one of the reasons why they love john major because he was prime minister and And reliable counselor so much. It's interesting conversation around the dinner table. It's a very interesting conversation for a long time. My parents conception so they were kind of surprised when i strangle infighting. That's a whole other discussion. That perhaps what we'll have another time but your now trying to grapple with welcoming a whole new generation of people and the money has been announced this morning still details. I'm sure to be worked out. But what the housing start looking In your area or some of the questions i understand. You had a meeting nas about this. Yeah thought amazing. Where my team yesterday at the council in regards to what kind of housing we can use the red very reluctant to use Social housing to house these refugees because we've got thousands of people and all social housing registered. So it's going to be very very difficult for us to to take that away from from our own constituents so what we're looking at as you different fund on a different way of finding private landlords housing cessations who'd be willing to give us housing onto the local housing allowance which is the housing benefit. Right the thing that we're gonna find difficult. Is that most of these families coming to a have unit family units of more than five or six people in the house in bedrooms that we're going to look for a fortified bedrooms and that's going to be very very difficult especially in london. So i agree with ben when he says that that we need to spread out this with wants ability across different councils across the uk and people need to think about not just staying in london but maybe moving outside to different areas. Of course the k g g say the government. I i recognize the this as as a labour councillor. But it's sort of at some points it very bad. Politics goes to one side party politics when you're trying to house and resettle people and individuals and help them rebuild their lives. Do you think it should be compulsory for councils to sign.

The cell in our body called the natural killer cell evolved to protect us against infection and protect us from any any transform cell so the innate system is a cell that relates in the human body looking and being aware of any dangerous signals that come out and then kill that cell so that it can propagate within your body part of the regular activity of these natural killer cells to keep the body clear of cancer. What happens to these cells when cancers develop what to catchers do to prevent them from doing their job so very much like the Navarre's today very much like any other system that wants to use the host and the cancer? I've said it many times. Cancer is like the virus about times. Kansas Hell actually hijacks the buddy system and order for your body to not be attacked by its own cells. There's a mechanism that puts in natural killer cells and the killer cheese to sleep and the cancer cells and very much like this corona virus cells activate. These suppress the cells and find a way to put the natural killer cells to sleep so that the natural killer Cell Cam do its job.
