"Is saying that the reason for the characteristic shape of fish comes down to their aquatic environment. Water is dense and it's also sticky, think of how raindrops stay glued to a car windscreen. This means that it takes a lot more energy to move through water than it does through air, and so fish have evolved this teardrop or fusiform shape to make them streamlined as they swim. Of course, there are organisms that can move through water without being this shape, but they're much less efficient. Like crowd science presenters, for example. We've come to a swimming pool just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland. To meet someone who specializes in making humans more like fish. My name's doctor Carla McKee. I'm a lecturer of sport exercise by a mechanics at Ulster university. My research area is in human aquatics whereby lotte help to maximize performance and make swimmers more efficient than the water. I take a lot of my inspiration from looking at aquatic animals and how they progress in the water and trying to mimic those type of movements and those efficiencies within the water. Thinking more about how we minimize drag then. What are the different ways in which you can go about doing that? So there are three different types of drag that were mainly concerned about in swimming. The first one is form drag and that is the resistance associated with body position in the water. Our high much space, you're taking up in the water. The second type of drag is frictional drag and that is the resistance associated with how smooth the body is. And the third type of drag is we have drag, and that is the resistance associated with swimming near the surface of the water. Call his expertise is used by competitive swimmers and coaches to perfect their technique, even by tiny amounts because at the top level performance is all about efficiency. Needless to say, I am nowhere near the top level, but for this show, that's probably a good thing, because it means there's scope for me to become a lot more streamlined. To

"We are all very conscious of the fact that time is running out. And that the weekend carries with a very grave risks for society in north down. For several long and grim decades, Northern Ireland looked like roughly the last place on earth from which a Nobel Prize for peace might be prized. By the late 1990s, Northern Ireland had been consumed for three decades by the miserable sectarian conflict known as the troubles. The troubles had killed three and a half thousand people injured perhaps 50,000 caused incalculable property damage and become regarded with gloomy fatalism as just one of those things about which everybody talks, but about which nobody is actually going to do anything. But in 19 98, the Nobel Prize for peace was shared by John Hume leader of the Irish nationalist social democratic and Labor Party and David trimble leader of the Ulster unionist party. Hume died in 2020 aged 80 three, trimble died this week, aged 77. The garlanding of Hume and trimble remains one of the more astute decisions of the Norwegian Nobel committee. Yes. 71.12 percent. After the good Friday agreement was signed earlier in 1998, bringing the worst of the troubles to a close, there might have been a temptation to ennoble the leaders of the paramilitary organizations who'd waged Northern Ireland's war and had now finally agreed to give it a rest. But it was Hume and trimble who did the difficult patient work of corralling mainstream opinion in their respective communities behind Northern Ireland Messi imperfect peace. Northern Ireland's place within the United Kingdom has been secured. The act of union, the fundamental piece of legislation defining northern position within the United Kingdom remains firmly in place. The act of union is the universe. Just a few years earlier, David trimble had seemed an unlikely peacemaker. In July 1995, trimble marched at the head of the orange order's traditional annual parade down the road in portadown county armagh. Porter down is a mostly Protestant town, but the gava road is a Catholic neighborhood, whose residents had long been rolled by the spectacle of orange sashed bowler hatted men thwacking lambic drums and singing of king Billy. In 1995, Catholic protesters blocked the parade. After a two day standoff punctuated by violent clashes, it was agreed that the parade would be permitted to proceed down the road as long as it did so in silence. Between ranks of local residents with their backs turned, David trimble led the parade alongside the reverend Ian Paisley, the thunderous fire breathing voice of hardline Ulster unionism whose habitual rejections of the mildest notion of compromise had earned him the nickname Dr. No. When they reached the end of the route, trimble clasped Paisley's hand in his and held at a loft. Well, we're delighted to be back down the traditional route. In Republican and nationalist circles in Northern Ireland, this image was read as confirmation that between unionism moderates and unionism headbangers, there was not a difference on which any outreach could long live. But when trimble was asked, he claimed that he had seized Paisley's hand to prevent Paisley from making the moment as Paisley so often did all about Paisley. If trembles telling is accurate, it stands as an unbeatable metaphor for his career. For all that trimble spent a life in politics, he was never a natural politician. He often seemed aloof and austere and certainly had a marked disinclination to tell people what they wanted to hear. But after becoming leader of the Ulster unionist party in 1995, he began trying to tell the UUP's corps constituency Northern Ireland's Protestant majority who wished to remain part of the United Kingdom, what he felt they needed to hear. Trimble's message was to paint an infernally complex picture with an extremely broad brush that there was good news and bad news. The good news was that peace in Northern Ireland was possible. The bad news was that peace in Northern Ireland would necessitate accommodation with and concessions too, not merely reasonable Irish nationalists like John Hume's SDLP, but militant Irish Republicans very much including the Irish Republican army. It is entirely likely that, during Northern Ireland, stumble and grasp towards peace in the late 1990s, trimble found dealing with the other side complicated and uncomfortable, though it was vastly easier than dealing with his own. Not only was Ian Paisley continuing to enjoy the applause usually attracted by melodrama pronouncing the entire peacemaking enterprise and negotiation with the devil, but many of the more moderate unionists who voted for trembles UUP were unhappy about the pinhead tap dancing around the decommissioning of the IRA's arsenal and about the prospect of the likes of Martin McGuinness, a former commander of the IRA's Derry brigade, playing a key role in the government. We've done our bit. Mister Adams. It's over to you. We've jumped. You follow. When trimble became the inaugural first minister of Northern Ireland's new look government in 1998, McGinnis was his education minister. Within a decade, Ian Paisley would be Northern Ireland's first minister and Martin McGuinness, his deputy, and the two men would somehow forge such a friendship that they would become known by bemused colleagues as the chuckle brothers. By then, David trimble was lord trimble of Liz. He eventually left the UUP for the UK's Conservative Party. David trimble did one of the hardest things that any politician indeed any person can do. He recognized that he was a beneficiary of the status quo and understood nevertheless that it needed to change. We rise from this table knowing that the union is stronger than it was when we sat down. From monocle 24, I'm Andrew mullet.

We have a lot of social media reaction to that comment considering Sabin makes over 9 million a year and it hasn't really been competitive balance in college football as Alabama has dominated every year.

"Ulster unionist party says that there is enough common ground to make a deal and he was speaking to us on Bloomberg Westminster. Well, we haven't supported the British government's approach for quite some time because we believe that fundamentally what the bill may do is help or it's conceivable that it could help get free movement of goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland that have no intention of going into the European Union single market. And we do support that. We have consistently warned government and other parties about what they were doing back in 2019. And you quoted Jeffrey Donaldson there earlier. But what nobody seems to pick up is that when Boris Johnson proposed the border in the Irish sea, which is what the protocol is. When he proposed that on the 2nd of October 2019, in a small document, which he sent to the European Union. On that day on which he produced that. The democratic unionist party endorsed what he produced, describing it as a serious and sensible way forward. Now we argued strongly against that because we could see that the idea of putting a border in the Irish sea from a pro union point of view didn't make sense. So we anticipated a lot of this. It was well known and it was well trailed and advanced. The consequences of an ill thought through removal of us from the European Union because we are the only part of the UK that had a land border. So common sense tells you, does it not, that you need special arrangements and I believe there is a proposal on the table which could go a long way to resolving these issues, but it needs to be done by negotiation. Would it be fair to say that there are some upsides to the current arrangement and we speak to business groups who say that it is an opportunity to be both part of the EU and the UK markets and North Island is the only part of the UK which has that special place. Well, I hear that argument and of course, as a former economy minister, I can agree with you that there is. But bearing in mind before we left the EU union, we had on interrupted access to all of the EU market and all of the UK markets. So all that brings us back is the status quo and if you like. But yes, I can see that point very clearly. But some businesses are doing extremely well. Others are struggling with their supply chains. And it's a mixed picture. But what I'm going to suggest to you as a way ahead is that both the common ground between the European Union

"But perhaps coming off those levels ever so slightly. And that's a Bloomberg business flash, and here is the end guaranteed with more on what's going on around the world. Good morning. Danny, good morning and thank you. In the U.S. 46 people have been found dead in a lorry parked near San Antonio in Texas and other 16 victims were taken to local hospitals suffering from excessive heat and exhaustion, San Antonio's mayor suggested the people who died were immigrants. This has temperatures reached as high as 39°C in the area yesterday. Now Bloomberg has learned that G 70 is all set to instruct ministers to explore implementing a price cap on Russian gas. It comes as part of broader discussions on how to limit the profit Russia makes on its energy exports. The leaders are also expected to mention a mechanism to cap prices on Russian oil in the final communique. And Boris Johnson's Bill to override the Brexit deal survived a challenge in the House of Commons yesterday, opponents in the prime minister's very own Conservative Party, including his immediate predecessor Theresa May, believe the move breaks international law in a separate high stakes political move, Scotland's first minister Nicholas sturgeon will today set up how she plans to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence. Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake, powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries, only Anne gerrans, this is Bloomberg, Stephen. Leigh Anne, thanks very much, really interesting to hear what Nicola Sturgeon has to say when she speaks later on today. Of course, the UK government has to give permission for that referendum to be held. So her plans really are in the gift of London to give in that case. But of course, interesting to see that she's ramping up to that as well. And on the Brexit front on Bloomberg Westminster at 12 o'clock today on DOB radio here in London, we will be speaking to Raj and lord from the Ulster unionist party of course very interesting to get his comments on the Northern Ireland protocol bill that passed that hurdle in parliament yesterday. We're going to turn next to some of the other events that we are looking out for later today. Leanne, you've been looking through some of the highlights of what we should be expecting in terms of news for later on. Yeah, but just on indie ref too Boris Johnson's quite strongly said he's not going to back a second independence referendum, so this is where the interesting points are going to come in when we hear from Nicholas sturgeon later. Of course, the S&P did really well in elections across Scotland recently. But that's at two 20 today we should say that statement should holy road from Nicola Sturgeon on her plans for the starting point of referendum. Will both of us will be watching that. No doubt. Now, I just want to bring you back to some of the other events we're going to be watching Stephen to the European Central Bank's annual forum in sintra hits its full stride today. Of course, we're going to hear from president Christine Lagarde. She's G to give her key Nate speech and it's actually coming up super soon, Nate 9 a.m. London time, so just a few minutes to wait for that. G 7 leaders also continuing their three day summer in the Bavarian Alps while NATO leaders do gather in Madrid today, so they all in the sunny parts of the world, and 1130 UK time we hear from the Chancellor Rishi sunak he's taking questions in the House of Commons from MPs. So that's another one to watch out for. And we're actually going to cross over to the U.S. for one of the last things we'll be looking at today. And that's Ghislaine Maxwell. Of course, a British socialite convicted of sex trafficking with her former boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein. Now she's due to be sentenced the afternoon, proceedings will begin at 4 p.m. UK time and there is a tea life blog on this on the Bloomberg terminal. So if you do want to follow it, you know exactly where to go and prosecutors argue Maxwell deserves a term of as much as 55 years behind bars, so that the softening. Yeah, and of course, we will be hearing from some of the accusers in that sentencing later on as well as that will be something that will be monitoring for you, of course, on Bloomberg as well. And thank you very much for that look. At some of the events that we'll be covering later for you today on Bloomberg and that speech of by Christine Lagarde from the European Central Bank's forum in sintra will be live here in Bloomberg radio as well as to do stay with us for that. Now Wall Street analysts are sticking with their bullish earnings forecasts for this quarter and Morgan Stanley wealth management CIO Lisa Charlotte says they need a reality check while investors are familiar with optimistic projections from Wall Street analysts have further increased 2022 forecasts over the past month. Data from Bloomberg intelligence show they expect companies in the S&P 500 to see profits grow by 10.7%. That's higher than the 10% forecast a month ago and the 8.7% at the start of this year. Charlotte has been telling Bloomberg's Jonathan farrow that she finds this far fetched. Unfortunately, Jonathan, I think our perspective is that this is a classical bear market rally. You know, if you look at things, you know, one of the narratives of bear markets is that you actually have to eliminate the vast majority of the negative catalysts and the single biggest one that is still out there. Is a recalibration of earnings expectations. You know, we've gone through this period. It's the most radical pivot in Central Bank history in terms of the speed and

"Beautiful, absolutely stunning. The debut album notes for a maiden warrior. Why that title? What's it mean? Yeah, so the notes are the songs themselves. The midden refers to the first aspect of womanhood or femininity in Celtic mythology and also a young archetype, so it's made in mother crew. And then warrior refers to, I'm from the province of Ulster, which is known as the warrior province and the island of Ireland. So it's very much rooted in that sense of place and that warrior sense. Perhaps not in a traditionally masculine or violent way as we currently understand it but more in terms of the wildness and strength and resilience within femininity. So yeah, I really am very chuffed with the title I have to say. I'm very chuffed with the title. It sounds great. You should be. It's powerful, and I love that sense of the warrior spirits of women.

"It simply because the limitation of wall space the complexity of storing them safely for archival protection. and then. of course there's the expensive matting and framing and all of that so with the emphasis on large prints that seems to be so dominant in photography. Today i'm not sure that's a good thing. I'm not sure it's a healthy thing to promote art photography as a subset of photography in general as a matter of fact i might go so far as to say that the reason photography became so popular as the decades of the twentieth century unfolded in time was simply because so many fine art photographs were appreciated in book form which were relatively easy to manufacture to distribute to own to enjoy as compared to really large prints and as a result of so many books and so many images being published and distributed that gave more and more people a chance to become fans and to enjoy photography as a legitimate art media but now that the book businesses suffering considerably and the emphasis of photographers is on the really large prints that makes it more and more difficult for people to see photography to enjoy photography to become fans of photography to maybe think about picking up a camera and trying their own hand at it. So i'm not sure. It helps photography in the long run that there is so much contemporary emphasis on large photographs. So that gives me some concern. Not saying large photographs shouldn't be done. They can be spectacular. But if you look at the emphasis that large prince have in the gallery world in the collecting world and the museum world. I'm not sure in the long run. That's great for inspiring new young photographers. Who will eventually be needed as all of us. Ulster's get to the end of our art careers so that i think sort of just scratches the surface a little bit but does express why i have some concern about the future of art photography. I think there are some very very encouraging things that are happening in photography to not the least of which is because there are so many people now who are involved in photography with their iphones and whatnot and taking so many photographs that even if a tiny percentage of them become dedicated and lifelong art making photographers. Even if it's a tiny percent that still going to be a huge number of people and that could be very encouraging. I'd also like to think that we're still in the relatively infant stages of the internet and so instagram and all of that now that dominates the distribution of photographs maybe is going to evolve and change and maybe there will be something better and different that is more productive and more conducive to the world of fine art photography coming in the internet. that simply hasn't been invented yet because it's too new. And i'm also incredibly encouraged by the capability of the technologies of photography to make it easier and easier for more and more people to pick up a camera and want to do something that is very high quality without having to struggle so mightily with cumbersome chemical materials and wet dark rooms. And all that. If you wanna do that you you still can. But it's not necessary. People can become artists with an iphone without having to master the technology of the iphone.

Will you be meeting with the loyalist communities council. Yeah i think. I would think i would like to. I think i think i'll probably meet david. I am sort of express. Yeah yes oh yes unexpressed. First of all that. I i don't understand why he sets with the representative of three loyalist. Paramilitary groups actually. He could sit there with a representative from a women's group or a community group or a sporting organization and a business groups from loyalists areas and they can put across the points and allies and those people who represent those to step back and when they step back then go through that process of only loyalist communities council as well. I think if you if you look at it and you look at it. Stated aims to provide a voice for loyalist communities when they didn't have a political voice and it was neely political project to try and get that political voice. But it's only tony got the red hand. Commando that right. No it's got. it's got other groups. Should be linking into it as well. That is other loyalist groups. And i've just mentioned some so any women's groups for example should be linking into the el-sisi community groups supporting groups business owners. They're the ones who are actually end the grassroots of loyalism now. Who should be coming to the fore with david to to promote the issues that they have within within loyalism and within their community. That's what i want to say. That's what i envisioned the lc as doing in the future and not sitting there with with with members of parliamentary groups. And i can understand. People will say well actually they they are. They are speaking for us i. I'm not sure they do speak for. Everybody takes really bold move for them to say. Actually you're right. We're gonna take a step back from this and we're going to do something different to be able to transition away from this and help the community. But i'm just wondering what the point of it is. I if i mean their stated aim you say is this sort of reverse the perceived neglect of loyalist working class communities Why do you need the uvf and the red hand commando as the principal partners in that project well legal organizations for start ups go away.

David Price on Colonel John Haslet's World
"David price. Thank you for joining me on the american revolution. Podcast thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be here. you're here today. Because britain a new book. About colonel john hazlet. What prompted you to write a book about john has let at. How important is he to the story of the american revolution. Well the genesis of this book. Mike was my first literary effort rescuing the revolution on sung patriot. Heroes in their ten. Crucial days are america's war for independence. John has was one of several individuals who i profiled in that book in a series of graphical vignettes which focused primarily on the contributions that each of these people need to patriot caused during what was perhaps the ten most inspirational days in american history. And perhaps the most pivotal moment in the war for independence. Now why did i choose hizbullah. Well you know. His name kept popping up in various things that i was reading most especially in a hackett fischer's pulitzer prize winning work. Washington's crossing which is the bible for people like me who are historical interpreters or so case graphs historical interpreters. I washington crossing historic park. That's a joke. By the way you have to read that book and you have to have a decent command. Say the material in order to be able to give a tour there under the auspices of a fringe group. So the more read about him. The more i was impressed by what he did. And and the kind of character he displayed in the course of his revolutionary service. So around the time that. I was reading that book and i guess the germ if you will of the seed when he's right. Metaphor here have been planted. The perhaps do something a little more elaborate on has land. And i came across the book by fred walters. John has led a useful one. Which far as i know. That was the only book that about him. It's a self published work came out. I believe in two thousand and five. Mary engaging read. I enjoyed it immensely. But it's written in the form largely not entirely but largely in the form of a historical novel. There's a good deal of well. Frankly fictional material an air imaginary dialogue scenes useful information to improve to be very helpful to me my initial reaction after reading. That was well. Fred has the subject covered pretty well. And i don't need to pursue curl has let any further the more i thought about it. The more i felt it deserved an effort by someone to craft more conventional kind of a non fiction work about curl and his delaware regiment now. I should add parenthetically that since his first book. Fred walters did polish. What i gather is a more conventional work and non fiction account. Biography of the kernel which i believe is entitled. John has lots eric journey. But it was published exclusively in a kindle edition. I decided to go ahead and pursue this idea of trying to write a book. Hamlet just to see you know when i was starting out i was just with the mindset of well. Let's see how this goes and what looks like and it wasn't challenge to produce something. That is a book length. Because as i pointed out in the preface to the book. There's not a lot known about his pre-revolutionary war life. We don't even know exactly when it was born is a someone about whom an agent is to in the preface or introduction. We don't even know exactly what he looks like. Physical descriptions of him but there's no authentic rep visual representation of inviting eighteen artists. Not by anyone. Who was alive when he was only two images that. I'm aware which i discussed under book. Which is the coverage. The stanley arthurs painting a reversal of the image of has lead in the stanley arthurs painting that hangs in the delaware public archives building. But in any case i could push ahead with the project so ultimately when it became was an effort to inter we three things one is the has the biography. One is the story of his seventeen seventy six regimen the first incarnation of delaware regimen with a little bit about the proposed hasler regimen is the reconstituted regimen in non truncated form that was created in seventeen seventy seven after his death and then a last name of courses or general one. It's quitting this whole context of the seventeen seventy six campaign. washington's army the new york and the campaign. Which of course culminates in what we call the ten crucial days campaign from december twenty fifth. Seventeen seventy six through january. Seventeen seventy seven. When has what has killed about princeton. The other thing. I think that was pushing me to do. This was at some point. When i was writing the second book it occurred needed. It would be a neat idea. If i could do a trilogy on the ten crucial days. I'm not aware that any other offer done. So what distinguishes has led from anyone else in terms of his contribution to the patriot. Cause well he created one of the elite regiments and continental army in seventeen. Seventy six as i believe the largest regiment in the army in the early months of that year they started recruiting january by me erupt. Almost eight hundred men. They were full uniformed. And i think they were. Perhaps the only regimen in the army that could make claimed for uniform to fully armed under has let's to of his agitate thomas holland formerly of his britannic majesty's army day molded these this forced into a efficient elite fighting unit. Bouffe or get too much into the details of the door blues. I wanna ask one thing you said. We don't know much about hamlet's prewar life. We do that. He came from northern ireland right and that he settled in kent county delaware. Do we have any information about why he left ireland and why he settled in delaware. Well he may have had personal indoor political reasons leaving ulster when he did his wife died his first wife got about five years before he came to the colonies which he did in seventeen fifty seven or thereabouts. Minor standing as they may have personal issues between him and members of the congregation. Her guests may have had an emotional toll on him. Such that believe she dialed probably died in childbirth so he was left with a young daughter. This may have taken a toll on him and as such impacted his ability to perform his ministerial duties. And that may lead to some ancient. Shall we say between young minister and members of his parish more generally when he came to the colonies. it was in the context of this larger immigration movement. If you will of the scotch-irish from northern ireland to the new world during the early and mid eighteenth century with was because of the harsh economic into the adverse economic conditions under which many of them live in the restrictions rather onerous restrictions have been imposed on him by british policy towards ireland towards the presbyterian church that was regarded as unwelcome adversary adversaries. You will to the established anglican church. So i think there's a plausible logger be made. That was part of. let's motivation. Maybe dominant part of his motivation.

She says she and ADESCO were a perfect fit. The board south is very welcoming and they wanted a different perspective on the board. She's a CEO in Canada with a background in the Internet of things or Iot. Which means things like? You're smart speaker or your Internet connected. Doorbell. A have the IOT experience. That background is there from you so. I'm actually being asked to give my voice quite a bit lately. A lot of accomplished female executives have gotten similar calls out of seventy five major California companies. That had no female board members. Two thirds of them. Now have at least one and now other states Massachusetts Washington and New Jersey are introducing similar legislation. Shannon Gordon is the CEO of the Board List. A database that companies can search to find female candidates we saw an increase in the number searches overall. And so I think it was kind of this halo effect because the topic has been discussed so much more in the last year or two companies are gonNA coming around to to the value. Ulster versity on forests. Multiple studies have shown companies with female directors are more profitable in January. Goldman Sachs CEO. David Solomon turned heads when he told.

Sojourner truth's name at birth was Isabel Balm free she was born into slavery and Ulster County New York in Seventeen Ninety seven in eighteen o. Six at the age of nine years old sojourner was sold at an auction along with a flock of sheep for a hundred dollars so join our later described. The slave owner is cruel. She endured repeated beatings at his hands. Sojourner was sold once again this time to a man named John Dumont interestingly because Turner grew up in New York state originally settled by the Dutch. She actually only spoke Dutch while living with Dumont she finally learned to speak English at that time. Support for emancipation in New York was growing. Dumont promised that he set so joyner free before it became the law to do. So but eventually sojourner came to realize that he had no intention of freeing sojourner fled with her infant daughter in eighteen twenty six one year before the abolition of slavery in New York. She was forced to leave her other three children behind when she later reflected on the escape sojourner said I did not run off for. I thought that wicked but I walked off believing that to be all right. During her journey to freedom sojourner made her way into the home of a quaker couple Isaac and Maria van wagon after learning about her predicament. They took so joyner and her baby. In until the states emancipation of slaves took effect the van wagon and treated joyner kindness and compassion sojourner later said that their benevolence inspired her to become a preacher during her. Stay with the couple. She became a devout Christian around that time so joyner officially changed her name from Isabella. Balm free to join her truth because she felt to represented her mission of fighting for Justice. So joiners famous words. Truth is powerful and it prevails echo that sentiment.

Asian Markets Lower As Coronavirus Fears Intensify
"Let's talk about the Asian stock markets. Of course the corona viruses creating havoc. Not only with our health but also with the economy. Yes and it's difficult to retell or estimate how how how bad that's going to be. We had a Federal Reserve meeting the US Central Bank last night and he did. Act- actually acknowledge the risks to the global economy for China. China is the second largest economic block in terms of largest economy in the world and the moment the Shanghai stock market is closed just because of Lunar New Year and that's been extended until Friday so we don't have the Chinese stock market opening trading. But we do have indications from other markets. The the Nikkei in Japan is down almost two percent. Hong Kong's Hang Seng has lost eight percent in the ten days. Since the spread of the virus I started to become sort of global issue. And if you look at sort of Asia Pacific shares. It's a seven week low so it's very very difficult difficult to try to work out the economic impact but it could be considerable taking Chinese growth from over six percent to below five percent notwithstanding Zainul the appalling human cost of this as well and stocks in Europe stocks all over the world that aren't even the airline stocks down because we saw yesterday. Yes they put your share wasted. It's not going to be flying China. You've got luxury goods companies like LVMH. Nobody's buying a China's massive by of luxury goods. Nobody's buying luxury she gets. You've got metals and mining companies companies that dig raw materials out the ground. Those shares fell why because China is a big user of raw materials. This this is something that is affecting the global economy although right now nobody knows quite how significant that is going to be. What about? The Star could precedent. Because of course. We've been here before. With the SARS academic yes but suddenly everyone was become experts in viruses. I don't know if you've noted this Georgina. I am not an expert advice.

A Beginner's Guide To Visiting Moldova
"I like to welcome to the show Christina Lescot from a finding elevation dot com which is a mindfulness website but she is also also from Moldova. Originally and come to talk to us about her home country original home country country of origin. Moldova Christina welcome to the show so much for having me Chris I feel like I could possibly said that more awkwardly but the I think that was awkward enough you so you were born in Moldova. But don't live there now. Yes I was born and raised and I laughed when I was nineteen and I'm currently in Canada so I will wear Moldova. I'm not sure that everybody could even put it on a map. Yeah that's a very valid question and fraud years. I was just thinking I should just make a card in every time I introduced myself someone. Just keep them the card hard and they're like. Hey this is where it is because the second question when everybody finds out at them from all the ways where is that so quite used to it already. has anyone anyone ever accused you of making up a country not yet detail. kind of thinking might happen in future. But it's actually in Ulster era. Settle in right next to Ukraine and Romania. So it's a very small country. Okay and in fact as I went to mispronounce ear name you had to tell me the Romanian pronunciation of it so the language there at least the language you spoke was Romanian. Yes we do. I have a few letters that are not used to the American side. Have a few extra letters in our alphabet that we're using it quite often and then why should someone travel to Moldova Raw. First of all would be because nobody really goes there. Technically if you're looking for for a country that it's still very cultural and it's still not tainted by tourism because tourism tends to when people go to one country and they go so in massive numbers the culture kind of gets lost in between in Moldova. Everything is quiet of people go and they see how it is this in this point in time without having to many tourists. So you won't have to deal with very high prices and generally you'll be discovering in culture that you've never really experienced before so if you're the person for looking for going to places that people don't usually go to Moldova as a really crepe place to start and we're talking about as you said a small country about I was just looking at two hundred ninety times smaller than the US us to take a whole year to visit all of Moldova. What would you recommend? We do. Say A one week itinerary. Okay so so you'll definitely be landing in the capital which is canal sue Maybe about two hundred thousand or five hundred thousand people. Oh it's very developed. It's very beautiful so there's a lot of neighborhoods to go around now. There are a lot of popular places in kitchen now. So the the main plays up people go to would be the cathedral and the Stephan the great wanting to which is right in the center of the capital capital and where you have the National Park Swell so technically. This is the main street in the center. This is where they new year's facilities are happening so y Stephan. The Great Park is important. Because he was I would say he was like a king in our country. We call it like a ruler. So he won a lot of bottles and every bottle he won. He would build the monastery. So we have a lot of monasteries in our country that would be if you're going directly to to the center of the city so this everything closed by you just take taxi. Were Public Transit. I would definitely challenge you to it from from there. My second favorite place in the capital that you should definitely try it out and go would be the place that we celebrate at the end of the war so dot would be cold the memorial complex attorney. It's also in the center kind of maybe maybe a twenty minutes drive from the center of the city still in the capital. It's one of my favorite places in kitchen house. So this is a place where we commemorate the veterans and every year the stability's for the the end of World War Two happened there and we also have an eternity fire. So there's a fire there. That never goes away. It's always protected by the military. So you can just go around. And there's different monuments and very beautiful sculptures in parks and it's kind of like a major park. Can you can just go there during the day and see it. Now we're too had other changes on Moldova's Moldova as I understand it became part of the USSR at the end of work too. So that is significant for why Moldova exists map as a separate country now is that it was part of Romania before the war part of the USSR until it gained its independence. Much more recently. That happened in one thousand nine hundred one. And that was I would say there's a big change to Moldova's cultural identity and identity in general especially language so we speak Romanian. But because we were a part of your czar We actually had our language colds curious so technically people would when they arrive they were right or million words but with Russian alphabet and also a lot of people will speak Russian so right now Moldova bovine is bilingual. And I would say it's seats at a good fifty fifty percent like if you go there you do very well refreshing language. You'll what else do very well in any language so even with my grandparents or so. They're more verse in Russian Than Me. I speak Romanian Iranian cameleon language however my grandparents They would write in curiel a car. They would not try Romanian. So that's a significant skinned difference. I'm we should point out for people who are not linguis- which I think is probably most of us. That Romanian and Russian are not in the same family group at all Romanian. Being a romance languages closer to French for instance and Russian is a Slavic language. So that's that's quite different to know this you it's Knowing Spanish and French or something like that they are completely different languages and I would say just. The war had such a big impact on us so we grew up with Russian influence. Russian music movies so I would say right now. There is obviously attention between Westernising Housing and going to the West. So it's always kind of Moldova is just in the middle and doesn't really know which way to go. The country just tear east has just had had part of it annexed by Russia as they try and get the band back together. So yeah I would think there'd be some some tension there so where else should we go after you've seen the city which there's a lot more places you obviously there's a lot of neighborhoods. I'm going to be biased entirely. Okay my favorite neighborhood is China. And that's because that is the place I spend my childhood in just walked in the streets and going to the local market it and discovering the people and there's a big alley that goes for quite a few blocks so usually when I was small. My parents would take me out there and we just walk doc do in the evenings on that massive Allie from one side to the other. There's a lot of restaurants and stores that you can check out this well and while you are in the center of the city definitely definitely try. Our cuisine. Moldova is very popular for having their a traditional food. which for me was kind of a difference because when I came to Canada was looking for traditional food but I couldn't really find it because we are so specific jake like we do have traditional food and every time we go away? We always crave it so we have like different restaurants and places we can go and buy. And I. Don't know Moldovan traditional food so it's going to be similar more similar Romanian. I'm assuming then Slavic so I'm not talking about the noodle dumplings swings and things like that. I'm talking about more stews actually. It's our traditional. Food is Komal Ga.. which is very great? Is this made off cornflower in. Eat It with your hands along with cottage
Hostess, the Symbol of Sugary Snacks, Buys Sugarless Cookie Maker
"Can the maker maker of twinkies succeed with sugar free cookies and natural ingredients hostess brands famous for twinkies Ho Hos and Ding dongs is buying workman's bakery a little known Canadian cookie. Okay Company for three hundred twenty million dollars. You may not know that company by name but you probably grew up with some of its sixty cookie. Brands perhaps vanilla wafers where it's famous Dutch windmill. Cookies in business world that celebrates startups both hostesses. Workman's are pretty long in the tooth. Hostess opened its doors in Nineteen nineteen. In with the invention of the hostess cupcake the smooth chocolate covered greenfield cake with a little white frosting squiggle on top but host is really came into its own when it launched the twinkie. Linke in one thousand nine hundred thirty. The twinkie has survived for the last ninety years with no signs of going away. We're not talking about a single twinkie. Here we're talking about the brand. Okay yes it has become the butt of numerous jokes and the target of an urban legend talking about. We'll how long they last on the shelves the saying is that perhaps twinkies are so chemically laden. They never go bad for the record. twinkies used to have an official shelf life of twenty odd days a few years ago hostess pumped up there preservatives and now twinkies can sit safely on your local seven eleven show for about forty five days or a month and a half. Portland's is a youngster. Compared to hostess there corporate history begins in nineteen fifty eighty one when to Dutch brothers. William and Harry Boardman began baking cookies and a Canadian kitchen in two thousand fifteen harry sold Boardman's to a private equity firm called squander pace. Capital Swansea pace kept workman's original cookie brands and it's icon Dutch girl logo. So what does a company like hostess known for everything. Everything's Workman's is not doing acquiring the more modest less artificial bakery it's expanding into so-called adjacent categories. That's what in this case the trying to move into the eight point. Five billion dollar cookie market while Volkmann's is the leading seller of sugar. Free cookies hostess has no cookies at all. But the twinkie maker for his flirted with cookies over the last few years albeit timidly in two thousand sixteen former CEO built. Taylor cautiously dipped hostess's toes into the Brownie market and he said there are are also questions around cookies. But we don't WANNA go too far. Afield Ho the audacity but the time is now right. There's greater and greater interest in so called healthy foods foods even when it comes to desserts. The Wall Street Journal notes that thirty eight percent of Americans said at Twenty Eighteen Pew Research Survey that they were limiting their sugar intake. Workman's is well opposition to take advantage of that desire. COUPLE OF YEARS AGO under its new ownership. Workman's began removing artificial ingredients and high fructose corn syrup from its offerings. I with regular brands and later with its line of sugar free treats the changes seemed to have worked for him in sales have been growing at the fast pace of five percent. A year that speedier than the rest of the cookie business and far faster than the market for packaged doughnuts and pastries as a result. The one point eight billion dollar hostess has overcome its earlier cookie adjacent jitters others and is hungrily. Eyeing growing treats category called better for you snacks.

McKee Foods one point. Five Billion Dollar Company founded in nineteen thirty thirty four. Mickey owns the Iconic Little Debbie snacks which are equally full of sugar and fat like cakes. But the privately owned company has had an advantage that hostess hostess didn't Mckee owns the Sun Belt brand better for you. Snacks many are made with whole grains and McKee claims. They have no preservatives. These sweet strategies go to show that when it comes to sugar. We're rather conflicted. Yes sugar free and healthier treats are growing as a category but so too are. What industry experts called blissful indulgences. DOLGIN is blamed that on stress eating growing phenomenon that marketers like hostess love which is why this acquisition of workmen's is putting a huge smile on the faces of hostess execs and the analysts that follow the company twinkies keep growing but hostess gets a whole lot better for you treats to add to its creamy fluffy arsenal all of indulgence snacks for hostess.

Persistence of division: after the Berlin Wall
"Tomorrow marks thirty years since the Berlin Wall fell with the Iron Curtain Separating East West Young East Germans dash the last one hundred to the wall and will hold into the West by West German food. They don't come on. The wall was built overnight in nineteen sixty one dividing city and a country in symbolizing a divided continent but three decades ago. There was a change in the air. In East Germany. Revolutions had begun to sweep through central and eastern Europe. Communist rule was beginning thing to come to an end. There was a sense having lived in a pressure cooker not just that year but for a number of years preceding it and I think we all I decided to go on like this and macelroy is a senior editor at the economist in nineteen eighty nine. She was working as a correspondent in East Germany. My the experience that the fall of the Berlin Wall was sitting at a press conference with condition of ski head of the Berlin Party. Who accidentally fall by trying to relax travel restrictions and then saying for immediately so a number of us then rushed to checkpoint Charlie and do other crossing points tried to persuade border guards at the wall was they didn't believe us and then a couple of Acer it was on the evening news and that seemed to who people like a suction from across the city tens of thousands of people to go due to the wall and to stop shouting? Let us cross. Let Us Cross and about eleven o'clock in the evening. The gods was no other advice just gave up an I did that. And that's the way it happened. quickey is sue easy enthusiast. People celebrated celebrated on both sides of the wall some took to it with hammers and shovels tearing it down piece by piece not surprising lots of hugging lots tosses of vodka and we take some with the Berlin Wall in historical significance. WHO's a healing of the scar? God that ran throughout Germany it was a country being slotted back together again but it was also a Europe whole and free. It was about pushing. I'm back together something. It'd been destroyed in that Calamitous War in the twentieth century for those living in East Germany the change was profound and I watch television all night and I was in tears and I just couldn't believe what I saw. I have the feeling something's happening in this year. Of course no idea and no thought that the war would come down. Cornelia Guenter manages our Berlin Bureau who was born in East Germany. My knife has changed enormously many aspects first of all I was able to travel. That was always my wish and in my desire for me it was very very happy thing that has had a very positive impact on my life but not everyone in the east called at the same in his speech last month. German Chancellor Angela Markle who is herself east. Germany said in Ulster. Today must all learn to understand why live from many people in East Germany German unity has not been a solely positive experience. Reunification made successes of some victims of others. Today it's being debated like never before one of the interesting things that's happened in the last few years. Is that large parts of West Germany. How many have started to realize that the way that they look at reunification is not the way many people in the east so retort experienced? It's almost half of West German. Say They consider reunification to have been a success story and the same goes for less than a third of East Germans. Tom nuttal Berlin bureau chief. The speed with which change with brought to East Germany was almost unfathomable if Germany was to be folded into what was a modern market economy like West Germany. Then mass layoffs and deindustrialization the industrialization were inevitable. Because voss way to these Germany was simply uncompetitive with mass privatization of East German companies to bring them into onto the market. That was a union of the currencies that ensured that the East German currency could be exchanged at one to one rate for the West German deutschemark. Moth what that meant is that firms in East Germany. All of a sudden having to pay their workers salaries that they could no longer afford and voss way to them with bust overnight essentially and had to lay their workers off by one estimate. Eighty percent of East German workers at some point in the post reunification years found themselves out of a job. And do you see evidence of that trauma still today. Yes you do you see it. In a small but persistent economic gap wages ages in the east are between eighty to eighty five percent the average of what they are in the West as productivity gap the proportion of large German companies companies that are headquartered in the east is absolutely tiny and then you have things like they call it. The transfer of elite of the sort of upper echelon of public jobs in the East only four percent of them occupied by east.
