    An Irishman Abroad

    Born in Belfast, George Hamilton has worked in broadcasting for four decades. In that time he his voice and ability to tell a story as it unfolds have made him the undisputed voice of Irish football. George's commentary like John Motson, is the soundtrack that sung by little boys and girls dreaming of winning world cups and scoring goals in the backyards when nobody is watching . He has captured the highs and lows of Irish sport for generations of fans, ever since he first took up the microphone in the mid-seventies, and he has been enthralling his audiences ever since. When I saw that he recently penned his memoir The Nation Holds Its Breath - I was delighted by the prospect of an hour long chat on Irishman Abroad with him. He doesn't disappoint and neither does the book. It takes us on an affectionate journey from the Cregagh Road in East Belfast to an emotional farewell salute from Big Jack Charlton on the hallowed Anfield turf in 1995. Not surprisingly, the book went on to be nominated at the Irish Book Awards.   Hear the whole conversation by supporting us on www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad & get access to tonnes of bonus content, weekly episodes, mini series and interviews from the Irishman Abroad.

    Expleo, a global technology, engineering and consulting service provider, have announced 200 jobs and the opening of its first regional hub in Mahon, Co. Cork. The company is investing €10M in the expansion of its workforce, along with the establishment of a network of regional hubs as part of the investment. Expleo has been operating in Ireland for over 20 years. Working with enterprise clients to fast-track value-driving innovation, futureproof their businesses and innovate consistently at scale, the company has seen a 25% growth in Irish revenues over the last two years, spurred by widespread digitalisation across all industries. To facilitate this, and further growth, the company will grow from 800 to 1,000 employees in Ireland over the next two years. The majority of the 200 jobs will be highly skilled IT roles in disciplines including software development, DevOps, software engineering and technical engineering. The new hires will work on transformative technologies and projects such as hyperautomation, robotic process automation (RPA) and agile transformation in industries including life sciences, financial services and aviation. To support the recruitment process, and to ensure that it attracts the best talent from across Ireland, Expleo will establish a series of regional hubs that will be complementary to the company's Irish HQ in Dublin and its base in Belfast. The first office in Mahon, Co. Cork, is now open, with subsequent hubs planned for Galway and Limerick. Team members based in the hubs will be offered the same flexible working arrangements as those in the Dublin and Belfast offices, allowing them to split their time between working from home and working from Expleo's hub offices or client sites. Regular team collaboration days, meanwhile, will ensure that all new hires will feel included and part of the core Expleo team. Phil Codd, Managing Director, Expleo Ireland, said: “We're thrilled to announce our expansion plans as Expleo continues to go from strength to strength on the island of Ireland. Following extensive research of available resources and skills throughout the country, it was evident that regional hubs would provide Expleo with the additional talent and impetus we need to deliver on our ambitious growth plans. “Our new hires in Cork will have access to all the benefits our current employee base enjoys including competitive salaries, flexible working, world-class training programmes and a highly supportive working culture. We're also looking forward to expanding our national footprint further with new hubs in Galway and Limerick also expected to open this year.” See more stories here.

Before entering PhD studies, he was Associate Minister at East London Tabernacle Baptist Church, having studied at Oak Hill Theological College in London. Before that he worked for six years with UCCF.Graham and I discuss three of his articles in this interview. First, we cover an article he wrote in the Fall of 2020 which articulated his understanding of how the state had over-reached and over-realized its ability to control a disease based on faulty assumptions regarding humanity and God. Next, we discuss the concept of resisting the state in the mind of Calvin. We explore the next generation of Reformed perspectives on resisting tyranny and how that informed a variety of viewpoints related to the relationship of church and state. Finally, we discuss the idea of being a magisterial baptist. Do baptists have a place within the magisterial reformed tradition? What limits are placed upon government in the Christian tradition? Did the reformation ruin government accountability? Join my Pateron - https://www.patreon.com/chasedavisGraham Shearer's Website - https://gjshearer.wordpress.com/Graham Shearer Twitter - https://twitter.com/GJShearerCovid and State - https://gjshearer.wordpress.com/2020/10/26/a-very-modern-plague-part-i/Calvin and Liberty - https://mereorthodoxy.com/calvinism-and-liberty/Response to Russell Moore - https://adfontesjournal.com/web-exclusives/marginal-baptists-a-brief-response-to-russell-moore/Baptist Political Tradition - https://adfontesjournal.com/church-history/must-baptists-reject-a-christian-state-2/

    Toby Harnden is an award-winning author and veteran foreign correspondent. In 2012 he won the Orwell Prize for his book ‘Dead Men Risen' - an account of beleaguered British soldiers fighting desperately to prevent the Taliban from seizing Afghanistan's Helmand province. As foreign correspondent, he reported from 33 countries for The Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and The Sunday Times, including postings in Belfast, Baghdad and Washington DC. In this in-depth interview, Toby shares the inspiration and journey behind his new book ‘First Casualty' - which is the prime account of CIA Team Alpha in their own words - the first Americans to be dropped behind enemy lines in Afghanistan after 9/11; reflects on how a decade serving in the Royal Navy inspired him to become a foreign correspondent, and better equipped him to report on “real stuff, real people - war, blood, and guts;” and discusses why much of his work is dedicated to covering PTSD - including presenting a BBC Panorama special, with the shock revelation that more British soldiers and veterans took their own lives last year than were killed in action.

    On 22 June 1922 Field Marshall Sir Henry Wilson, former Chief of the Imperial General Staff, and Unionist MP for North Down, was assassinated outside his London home in Eaton Square. The anti-Treaty IRA were blamed and six days later, under pressure from the British, Michael Collins ordered the bombardment of the Four Courts, the opening salvos of the Irish Civil War. But who was Henry Wilson? Was he, as was alleged, the mastermind behind the anti-Catholic pogroms in Belfast 1920-22? And who ordered the hit? To address these and other questions listen to History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, in discussion with John Dorney, Caoimhe Nic Dhaibhéid, Padraig Óg Ó Ruairc, John Regan.

This included PABX integrations and internal optimizations for a better user experience. The range of booths, talks and opportunities to meet folks was impressive indeed. I chatted with some entrepreneurs who requested secrecy around their products in the pre-launch stage noting the venture capital community was well represented at the summit making it an ideal networking opportunity for both parties concerned. The legal industry was also there in the form of Sarah Wilson and her colleagues from Cleaver Fulton Rankin located in Belfast city. Sarah and her legal colleagues are specialists in data compliance and governance in the tech space. The second day started off in a less populist manner but did fill up to a respectable degree where one was wary of getting too close to people in certain parts of the summit. Talks by many companies including Mastercard Foundry (the new design/R&D divisional merger), were in full swing. I visited the Foundry booth and was brought through some projects by James Conway and Stephen Elder. The use of Mastercard apps for making payments and opening up hotel doors based on existing products was an interesting product adaptation that Stephen was working on and immediately useful in my view. James was on the data side using IBM's quantum machine to run advanced algorithms on fraud detection and mapping of fraudulent transactions across Mastercard-enabled networks identifying previously unknown cash points in the journey of the fraudulent transaction. This investigative gap can now be swiftly resolved by quantum computing innovations such as this. I went into the Lenovo booth where Antonia brought me through the complimentary service and solutions innovation from Lenovo allowing Lenovo customers to gain value from this enhanced support solution. My journey then led me to a talk on AI and ‘How humans can co-exist with AI' as a panel discussion led by Laura Ellis. I was heartened by the great point made on how repeatable task elimination gives rise to new job opportunities for those willing to learn new things and take advantage of new opportunities. The second day's afternoon saw me attend talks such as ‘From Startup to Scale up' where experiences were shared by Stephen Crowley of Flipdish and Eileen O'Meara of Stripe. Both leaders commented extensively on the COVID challenges of remote working. This included catchment areas to an office for recruitment, the requirements of leadership based on knowing your people and the prioritization around managing company culture through adverse times. I also stopped off at the ThreatLocker's booth where Eoin McGrath brought me through their scalable agent-based service that materially enhances your fleet's security posture at the application level with their managed security solution. My final stop of the day was with Michal Sukiennik of Airnauts. I chatted with Michal for some time about development challenges in today's web 2.0 world and his company's outsourcing capabilities providing an integrated service that covers the product rather than just part of the project. This is now seen as the new best practice approach to web development of digital...

    Max Pearson introduces first-hand accounts of the past. In 2009, Rob Hamill testified in the trial of Comrade Duc, who ran the notorious Tuol Sleng prison during the Cambodian Genocide. Josephine McDermott spoke to him. It's 50 years since Kim Phuc's village in Vietnam was bombed with napalm. The photograph of her, running burned from the attack, became one of the iconic images of the Vietnam War. Christopher Wain helped save her. This programme, which is a Made in Manchester production, brought Kim Phuc and Christopher Wain together in conversation. In 2001 a violent, sectarian dispute took place outside Holy Cross Primary School in Belfast. Loyalist protesters tried to block the school run for Catholic pupils and their parents for months. Rachel Naylor spoke to one of the parents, Elaine Burns. This year is the 100th anniversary of Ulysses by James Joyce, one of the most influential novels of the 20th century. Ulysses is the story of one day in the life of a young Irishman in Dublin; that day, June 16th, is now known as Bloomsday. To mark Bloomsday, Simon Watts brought together the memories of some of Joyce's friends. The programme was first broadcast in 2012. In 1985, a unique High School opened in New York to provide a safe environment for LGBT students needing specialised education. The publicly-funded Harvey Milk High School was founded by former social worker, Steve Askinazy. Alex Collins talked to Steve Askinazy.

    “First off I love that you're using that word, craft because it has to do with both the art and creativity, but also the intention and the precision behind it as well. So kudos to you for using that word. So I am a chef cook and I alternate back and forth between those two. But sometimes say I'm a cook that just makes good food. I'm also a writer and I write cookbooks. I also write my blog and I used to write a column for the Portland Press Herald for a long time,” said Annie Mahle.As you all know Kristan start's off each of her episodes with the question, “what is your craft and what inspired you to start it?”. Annie's answer was a bit of a surprise as Kristan only knew about her amazing cooking on the J. & E. Riggin but Annie brings a lot more than just cooking, she elevates the mealtime experience. Mealtime in any environment she is in whether it be on a schooner or at home creates memories with friends and family and that's what mealtime is all about. While it may seem the process of going into a beautiful mealtime experience is fun and rewarding, there are many challenges along the way.Annie has shifted her career as she is no longer the owner of the J. & E. Riggin and now focuses on her writing, traveling to fun places with her family, and horseback riding. Tune in to learn more about Annie and her career as a maker of all sorts.
