Starting on BBC Two, BBC Northern Ireland and BBC iPlayer tonight, Once Upon A Time In Northern Ireland gives voice to the people who lived through the Troubles, sharing intimate stories from all sides of the conflict. The series airs today on the anniversary of the referendum that ratified the Good Friday Agreement, on 22nd May 1998. Nuala is joined by two women, Denise and Bernadette, who chose to take part in the series to share their stories. As the Online Safety Bill progresses through the House of Lords, the former culture secretary Baroness Morgan of Cotes has tabled an amendment to the Bill calling for a Violence Against Women and Girls Code of Practice. She said a code is desperately needed to specifically address the harms to women and girls. Further discussions will take place this week on the Bill. Baroness Nicky Morgan joins Nuala to discuss. How do you feel if someone tells you you're 'looking good for your age'? Not so secretly thrilled? Slightly indignant? Why are we likely to take it as a compliment if someone believes you look younger than you actually are? The American businesswoman and lifestyle guru Martha Stewart recently became the oldest woman on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and has been praised for looking less than her 81 years. Why? Nuala is joined by Sam Baker of The Shift podcast, and Lucy Baker who blogs as The Geriatric Mum. A new menopause drug to deal with hot flushes could be available by the end of the year in the UK. The non-hormonal drug fezolinetant has been hailed as 'game-changing' by some experts. At the same time, the supply of the HRT drug Utrogestan has been restricted by the government because of shortages. To find out more, Nuala is joined by Dr Annice Mukherjee, a consultant endocrinologist and visiting professor at the University of Coventry; and Dr Nina Wilson, an NHS GP and founder of the One Woman Health menopause clinic.

Altamar - Navigating the High Seas of Global Politics
Several years into Brexit, the country has not found its footing politically, economically, and in its very soul. The UK is working to rebuild relationships with Europe while dealing with renewed calls for independence from Scotland and Northern Ireland. The economy has fared better than expected, even though inflation has resulted in a deep cost-of-living crisis. Rising economic inequality and anti-immigration sentiments add to the uncertainty. The Altamar hosts are joined by Jon Sopel, former award-winning BBC journalist and television personality. Altamar's ‘Téa's Take' by Téa Ivanovic examines unfavorable youth views on the monarchy and economy. ----- Produced by Simpler Media
How can you be sure you're eating what you think you're eating? In most cases, food fraud won't make you ill, but you won't be getting quite what you're paying for. In this programme, Ruth Alexander hears why high food prices and the war in Ukraine mean food fraud is more likely to happen. She visits a laboratory in Belfast in Northern Ireland, where food products are analysed to sort what's real and what's fake, and she speaks to a food fraud investigator who tells us just how difficult it is to stop the criminals. And we hear from a spice market in Delhi where vendors and shoppers tell us how they try to avoid fake products.

There are oh, so many myths around the topic of negotiation and conflict. Some of us believe that we have to be hard, shrewd, and that it's a zero-sum game with a winner and a loser. Some of us even believe that negotiation must hurt or it's not a negotiation. And some of us believe that negotiation isn't a relevant part of our lives. Turns out that's untrue. All of us must negotiate and probably more often than we are even aware. What are the necessary skills for good negotiation? What would be the best way to hold our negotiating partner in our mind? And what about other factors that might be relevant like, how and where should we be seated when we get negotiate? These and so many other questions will be answered by my expert guest, Dr. Joshua Weiss (https://www.joshuanweiss.com/). Josh is Senior Fellow at the Harvard Negotiation Project, and the co-founder of the Global Negotiation Initiative at Harvard University. Josh has worked to assist in negotiations for big corporations as well hostage negotiations and work in high conflict zones like Northern Ireland and the Middle East. He is also the author of a superb book called The Book of Real-World Negotiations: Successful Strategies from Business, Government, and Daily Life. Retired FBI agent, Joe Navarro said of the book, “By the time you finish, you know that you have been bequeathed a treasure.” So, listen in as Josh and I talk about how to negotiate in the real world.

It's Monday, May 8th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Adam McManus Two kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls rescued in Nigeria Last Friday, after more than nine years of captivity, two more Chibok schoolgirls have been rescued by Nigerian soldiers, reports International Christian Concern. Hauwa Maltha and Esther Marcus, who are now in their 20s, were forced into marriage with the Boko Haram Muslim terrorists who kidnapped them. Maltha revealed that she was forced to marry three terrorists during her nine-year captivity. She was eight months pregnant during her rescue and delivered a healthy baby boy on April 28. Christian communities within Chibok have been faced with ongoing persecution since 2014 when about 300 schoolgirls were abducted by Boko Haram. The coronation of King Charles III On Saturday, King Charles III was officially coronated as Britain's reigning monarch at London's Westminster Abbey, reports Fox News. Beside him was his wife, Queen Camilla. The eldest son of the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, was crowned on Saturday. The 74-year-old ascended to the throne upon the death of his mother, who died in September 2022 at the age of 96. Queen Elizabeth was Britain's longest-reigning monarch. Charles was proclaimed Britain's monarch two days later. The coronation was filled with pageantry and music. (sound of music) BOY: “Your Majesty, as children of the Kingdom of God, we welcome you in the name of the King of Kings.” KING CHARLES: “In His name, and after His example, I come not to be served, but to serve.” Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, led the oath. ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “The coronation oath has stood for centuries, and is enshrined in law. Are you willing to take the oath?” KING CHARLES: “I am willing.” ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the peoples of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, your other realms and the territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs?” KING CHARLES: “I solemnly promise so to do.” ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “Will you, to your power, cause law and justice and mercy to be executed in all your judgments?” KING CHARLES: “I will.” ARCHBISHOP WELBY: “Will you to the utmost of your power, maintain the laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel? Will you, to the utmost of your power, maintain in the United Kingdom, the Protestant Reformed religion established by law?” KING CHARLES: “All this I promise to do. The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.” WELBY: “God save the king!” PEOPLE: “God save the king!” [Watch the key points in the coronation and subsequent procession at C-SPAN where you can click on just the portions that interest you.] King Charles' request to let non-Christians lead prayer was overruled Two theological controversies arose out of the planning of the coronation. First, to the discomfort of Anglican church leaders, King Charles wanted four non-Christian religious leaders -- a Muslim, a Hindu, a Sikh, and a Jew -- to lead prayers at some point during the coronation Christian service in Westminster Abbey. Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby said, “The coronation is first and foremost an act of Christian worship.” And Gavin Ashenden, the former Chaplain to Queen Elizabeth, offered his analysis to CBN. ASHENDEN: “The order of service was delayed. And we're pretty sure it was delayed because Charles wanted a group of representatives of other faiths to lead the prayers. But there's a rule in the Church of England; it's part of the church's law, and it's backed up by Parliament's law, that to lead the liturgy in an Anglican church, you have to be a believing Anglican. So, there was a conflict. And it looks like Charles lost.” Instead of leading prayers, the Muslim, the Hindu, the Sikh, and the Jew presented the king with four pieces of coronation regalia on page 9 of the Order of Service. [Those taking part are Most Venerable Bogoda Seelawimala (Buddhist), Lord Singh of Wimbledon, (Sikh), Radha Mohan das (a representative from a Hindu temple in Hertfordshire), Aliya Azam (Islam), and the Chief Rabbi Sir Ephraim Mirvis (Judaism).] In Exodus 20:2-3, the one true God speaks with clarity. “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me.” Defender of the Faith, Defender of Faith, or Defender of Thy Faith? The second theological controversy actually dates back to 1994. That's when Prince Charles had expressed an interest in changing the title of the ruling monarch, once he assumed the throne, from “Defender of the Faith” – meaning the Christian faith -- to “Defender of Faith,” a generic reference that would have been inclusive of any faith and thus terribly meaningless, reports EuroNews.com. Apparently, Archbishop Welby settled on the title of “Defender of Thy Faith,” referring to God's faith. Candidly, that is an odd reference since God doesn't need to have faith in His own existence; we do. Listen for that phrase as Archbishop Welby opens the communion portion of King Charles' coronation service. WELBY: “It is right, and our bounden duty, that we should, at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, Oh Lord, Holy Father, Almighty Everlasting God, through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son, our Lord, who has, at this time, consecrated Thy servant, Charles, to be our king. That by the anointing of Thy grace, he may be the Defender of Thy faith and the protector of Thy people, that with him, we may learn the ways of service, compassion, and love. And that the good work that Thou has begin in him this day may be brought to completion in the day of Jesus Christ.” That last sentence is a clear reference to Philippians 1:6 which says, “He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Gunman at Texas mall killed 8, wounded 7 And finally, a gunman shot and killed eight people and wounded at least seven others at Allen Premium Outlets mall located 25 miles north of Dallas on Saturday, reports Reuters. EYEWITNESS #1: “It was at least 50 to 100 rounds. It was nonstop and there was nothing we could do. It was just terrible.” According to a DashCam video of the scene, the gunman, dressed in black, pulled up in a Grey Charger, opened his door, and just started firing on shoppers as they walked by the H&M store. Allen, Texas Police Chief Brian Harvey explained how the shooting came to an end. HARVEY: “At 3:36pm this afternoon, one of our officers was on an unrelated call at the outlet mall. He heard gunshots, went to the gunshots, he engaged the suspect, and neutralized the suspect. He also then called for ambulances.” The attacker has been identified as 33-year-old Mauricio Garcia, who had been living with his parents until recently before he started staying at a motel nearby, reports NPR. Police found an AR-15-style rifle and a handgun at the scene after Garcia was killed. Steven Spainhouer, whose son worked at the H&M store at the scene of the shooting, said this. SPAINHOUER: “It was a warzone there. There is no other way to describe it. There's no way these people could have survived the assault of those weapons.” Please pray for God's strength and comfort for both the grieving families and the wounded survivors.

This is HCD - Human Centered Design Podcast
Hey folks, I'm delighted to bring you two exclusive interviews from a very special event that I attended recently in Nuremberg in Germany called Teaming with AI. A few weeks ago, as I was driving to Northern Ireland, I mentioned to my wife, about an event my friends Markus Hormess, Adam Lawrence and Florian Bailey were hosting. I didn't expect to be given a free pass to attend from the family, but it came and I didn't ask a second time. I've a bit of a love hate relationship with AI. I enjoy reading about, but can foresee some massive transformations that are likely to occur, not in the future, but right here and right now. I hadn't really sat down and given the impact that much thought other than it was extremely likely. This event gave me the time to pause, connect, reflect and review the changes in macro level detail. What was of most interest to me, was how it would change how we design or more to the point, how it would likely change DESIGN. I gave an-hour session at the conference on how This is HCD has been leaning into AI since 2018. Most of the edits are trained on my voice, meaning we have presets for my microphone at home, and even have the ability to edit what I say using a trained AI on my Mac to make small changes here and there. But back to Design, well I was in a workshop led by our guest today, Steffi Keiffir. She is an independent practiioner and facilitates Design Thinking workshops, Design Sprints etc and has been using AI a lot more than most within their work, and we go deeper into this. Just how they are using, what AI pieces they are using, so if you listen to the entire episode, you'll get an overview of just how much change is upon us. We used a basic 5-step design process and reviewed how, where and when AI can be applied and what the likely outcomes are. Quite simply, this is a must listen for anyone on the tools, or anyone within any strategic function in business today.

Please be aware the stories, theories, re-enactments and language in this podcast are of an adult nature and can be considered disturbing, frightening and in some cases even offensive. Listener Discretion is therefore advised. Welcome heathens welcome to the world of the weird and unexplained. I'm your host, Nicole Delacroix and together, we will be investigating stories about the things that go bump in the night, frighteningly imagined creatures, supernatural beings and even some unsolved mysteries but I promise: all sorts of weirdness. So, sit back, grab your favorite drink, and prepare to be transported to today's dark Enigma.... And on today's Dark enigma well, we're taking a little detour and we're going to dive into some folklore and myths! So, with that said, we will still be playing our drinking game and as you know, the drinking game is only for those of us that are at home and have nowhere else to go tonight. The choice of libation, as always my darlings, is yours, so choose your poison accordingly… Alright, now for the game part how about every time I say Canonbie that will be a single shot and every time I say Dick, that will be a double shot. Now that the business end is out of the way we can jump headfirst into today's dark enigma… so don your family tartan and you're most traditional Kilt as we travel to the beautiful moors of Scotland as we jump into the Scottish Myth of The King Under the Mountain and The Tale of Canonbie Dick The Arthurian legends have long been associated with England and Wales, but there is some evidence to suggest that King Arthur was in fact a Scot that lived in the seventh century: Artuir, the son of King Áedán Mac Gabráin of Dál Riata, a Gaelic kingdom encompassing the Scottish region now known as Argyll and Bute, and part of County Antrim in Northern Ireland. Amongst the many Scottish myths associated with King Arthur is the story of Canonbie Dick, the northernmost version of the king under the mountain folklore motif in Britain.
