    Images of Cyril and Methodios adorn libraries, universities, cathedrals and passport pages in Slavonic speaking countries from Bulgaria to Russia, North Macedonia to Ukraine. But the journeys undertaken as religious envoys by these inventors of the Cyrillic alphabet have led to competing claims and political disagreements.

Mirela Ivanova teaches at the University of Sheffield and was selected as a New Generation Thinker in 2021 on the scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council, which turns research into radio.

    The discovery of goffering irons, the tools used to shape ruffs, by an archaeological dig in North America, gives us clues about the way the first English settlers lived. Lauren Working's essay looks at the symbolism of the Elizabethan fashion for ruffs. Now back in fashion on zoom, they were denounced by Puritans, shown off in portraits of explorers like Raleigh and Drake, and seen by the Chesapeake as a symbol of colonisation, whilst the starch was used for porridge at a time of scarcity and war.

She rose to fame due to a variety of HBO Specials and countless late night appearances on shows like Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, which established Rudner as one of the premiere female comics to emerge from the comedy boom of the 1980s. Rudner has filled Carnegie Hall times, and holds the Las Vegas Record for the longest running solo act, where she performed over 2,000 shows over the course of 12 years. Rudner was nominated for a Writer's Guild Award for best screenplay for "Peter's Friends" which she co-wrote with her longtime writing partner and husband, Martin Bergman, and has also written for two Academy Awards with host Steve Martin. Rudner recently performed for former President Obama, and recorded her latest special, "Rita Rudner: Live from Las Vegas" for PBS as well as BBC Radio.

    The Mid•Point with Gabby Logan

    After humble beginngs in Northern Ireland and difficulty at school, Colin Murray's success was not a given. But his driving work ethic, intelligence and passion have delivered him to dizzying heights. Throughout the 1990's he slid from the news room into music journalism, eventually finding himself on BBC Radio 1, where he broadcast to the nation for a decade. In 2003, he jumped onto our screens as one of the hosts of the breakfast show RI:SE on Channel 4 and, over time, became one of the go-to voices and youth of music, TV, and radio. Since then he's moved to BBC Radio 5Live, and showcased a deep love and knowledge for sport, presenting for Match of The Day 2, Talk Sport and, of course, on his fantastic show, 'Fighting Talk' which he presents every Saturday morning at 11 o'clock. It's clear that his career has blossomed, but he's chosen not to have a family or children. Now, at 45, is that a choice he still stands by? Are the physical changes of midlife breaking his stride? And how has he mellowed in his approach to life as a whole?  We also hear from Alexis Willis, author of How Much Brain Do We Really Need? who explains what we can do to develop and protect our brain health, into midlife and beyond.

The film, about a pair of incompetent singer-songwriters who become entangled in a CIA plot in north Africa, tanked at the box office and ultimately put paid to May's directing career.

Discoveries about the gut microbiome, for example, and the gut-brain axis; the fascinating vagus nerve and the power of the neurotransmitters we hear about in piecemeal ways in discussions around mental health. The phrase “mental health” itself makes less and less sense in light of the wild interactivity we can now see between what we've falsely compartmentalized as physical, emotional, mental, even spiritual. And so much of what we're seeing brings us back to intelligence that has always been in the very words we use — “gut instinct,” for instance.

    Dealing with Banks and Getting Your Loans Approved Fast (REWIND)

    To get financing, you have to prove to banks and lenders that you're far from delinquent and can be trusted. So, in this episode of Mark My Words Podcast, Mark talks about how essential it is to build rapport with long-term lenders to get better terms with banks. He also suggests that you look for 2-3 commercial lenders. Though you've submitted the complete requirements and have an outstanding credit report, it also makes a difference if you have established a connection with the relationship manager since they already trust you and know that you meet the criteria. KEY TAKEAWAYS Mark prefers to get to know and contact the relationship manager directly with the bank, not through a broker. In this way, you get to know each other. So, when they see that you have good standing of records in their database and remembers that they also know you, there is a high possibility of getting the best terms with the lowest rates. Mark's Tips: Have 2 or 3 commercial lenders. Try not to spend too much money on legal fees. We need development finance for our projects. Banks offer low loan values, and the terms are not as good. Mark suggests going to your broker for your development finance. BEST MOMENTS "Until the evaluation is back and the bank has confirmed how much they're going to lend on the property... you probably got that many more issues to come." "In the future, I probably find a bank number two - a backup, a secondary bank." "You need to have 2-3 long-term relationships with term funders who do development finance, who you could go to if you need a loan, who has got you in his system, who has seen over time how you behave."

The first thing you do in hypnotherapy setting is to build rapport, which makes people feel comfortable, and therefore respond to the hypnosis much better. I use affirmations which I deliver at a certain point in the recording, and also use sound frequencies to make the recordings enjoyable to listen to, and experiential. I've made the recordings over a 20-year period and they've changed over time, and now I generalize the recordings and make them work for the majority. There are times I've re-recorded an old recording, and then people write in and ask for the original because they feel connected with it. When I make recordings, I totally believe in what I'm saying and what I'm delivering. You just have to be right for this job, because if you're in the right place, you get that ability to be able to help others. I saw a stage hypnotist doing his thing and I saw something in it in that moment, and that's what sparked my interest then went off and learned the therapeutic side. I never intentionally started to make recordings for any kind of business plan. I did it for a client who asked me for a recorded session. I started recording more tapes and sold them off to stores and it took off very quickly. I was meditating and doing affirmations about being in the right place at the right time, and my unconscious mind my conscious mind, were working in perfect synergy. I got a call from Nielsen book data and they said that I could have a gold disc for my title, because I had sold a quarter of a million pounds' worth, and I got a gold disc. I then realized I could use that as leverage promotional thing and I put that out there on all social media which led to BBC offering me a deal for all of my recordings. All the time I was working on my unconscious to clear away any negative failure programming because without doing that, it would have been much harder and I wouldn't have got this far. Commercial break You can create this program inside you, that the external world responds to automatically. If you take on board these affirmations and these beliefs on a deep level, the world responds to you and is incredible. This life is an amazing opportunity to grow and heal our Karma and awaken, and naturally, looking inside and meditation is the way to find that. A lot of my work is about helping people who are stuck, to move forward and work on themselves and go for the delayed gratification instead of the short term pleasure. Look at the influences in your life and do not be afraid to cut ties when people are holding you back or lowering your energy. Focus on creating your own safe place through a daily meditative practice and nurture yourself. ………………………………………………… Do you want to be a go to expert that news reporters, anchors and media producers turn to?

    People become writers for myriad reasons - novelist Max Porter suspects that for him the crucial spur was his fascination with Bekonscot model village, which he visited scores of times as a child. It was there that he discovered the pleasure and value of people watching at a life-size and miniature scale. In A Life In Miniatures he returns to Bekonscot to celebrate not just the care, craft and love that have gone into its construction, but also the opportunity it affords to create complicated stories out of the various people and scenes on show. He interrogates whether these places are necessarily escapist and reactionary or offer a more radical opportunity to critique society. He visits Jimmy Cauty of KLF fame to hear about the dystopian model village he has toured around the world in a shipping container and talks with Douglas Stuart, author of Shuggie Bain, about the miniature appearance of a miniature village that appears in that book. Max also speaks with academic Melinda Rabb about the rise of miniatures in 18th Century England - and how smart phones are keeping the tradition alive in various unexpected ways.
