What are parasocial relationships, the one-sided connections between celebs and their fans? This kind of one-way relationship is generally between a fan and a public figure or fictional character. It's about the feeling of familiarity or even friendship we feel for a celeb without ever actually having had any direct interaction with them. Most of the time of course, said celeb doesn't even know we exist. After all, depending on their stature, they may have millions of fans, but there's only one of them!  It's a very modern-day phenomenon, isn't it?!

Full Disclosure with James O'Brien

Mick Lynch has been hitting the headlines from the picket throughout the summer and makes batting off stereotypical lines of questioning from the right-wing media commentariat look like a blood sport. One interviewer accused him of seeing himself as an evil criminal terrorist mastermind. But ultimately the RMT's General Secretary describes himself as a working class, good natured, second generation Irish immigrant leading an industrial dispute.

Who are the RMT, the organisation creating massive travel disruption across the UK? The UK is set for another day of disruption on 27th July, as the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers steps up its industrial action again. In the days leading up to the planned action, the union confirmed that the strike would go ahead as negotiations hit a wall. Over 40,000 workers are  expected to walk out, including staff from Network Rail and 14 train operators. Passengers are advised not to travel, as less than 20% of planned services will be running. Some cities will have no train services at all, like Blackpool, Bournemouth and Portsmouth for example. What are the strikes about then?

Is football finally coming home? England are through to the final of the women's Euros - thanks to an incredibly cheeky backheel goal from Maidstone's Alessia Russo. The 23-year-old scored the third on the night as it finished 4-0 against Sweden in Sheffield. Hear from our sports reporter Tom Reeves and Alessia has been describing 'that goal'. Also in today's podcast, it's been a difficult journey to work for anyone in Kent who can't avoid travelling by train. Very few services have been running due to strike action. Hear from Network Rail and the RMT union. A woman's described the moment she was knocked down by an e-scooter in a hit and run in Canterbury. Sarah Carter was left seriously injured and needed surgery after it happened earlier this month and has been speaking to our reporter Gerry Warren. Bosses at one of Kent's biggest attractions say something must be done to fix travel problems at Dover. After last weekend's chaos, there have again been queues at the port today as people try to get away for a summer break. It's being blamed on high demand at border control after extra checks were brought in because of Brexit. We've been speaking to Neil McCollum from English Heritage which runs Dover Castle. It's being claimed today that French and British emergency services passed responsibility on to each other when dozens of people drowned in the English Channel last year. A rubber dinghy sank in November, killing 31 asylum seekers and an unborn baby. And in sport, Kent sprinter Dina Asher-Smith has withdrawn from the Commonwealth Games with a hamstring injury. The 26-year-old from Orpington picked up the problem during the recent World Athletics Championships in Oregon.

It is another strike day and more travel chaos on railway services.Once more there's commuter misery as main lines into and around London are hobbled on the fourth day of nationwide rail strikes, with just a fifth of the usual services expected to run.Industrial action has left many services grinding to a halt, and freight's being given priority over passengers.More than 40,000 RMT union members working for Network Rail and 14 of England's 15 rail companies walked out for 24 hours until midnight tonight.There's more industrial action to come by the Aslef union on the railways on Saturday, while a Tube strike hitting Transport for London-run services is planned for next month.Meanwhile, London has the highest proportion of travel complaints to the Ombudsman.So, do rail strikes ever achieve their aim, and at what cost to passengers?The latest row is over eight per cent pay rises - or the lack thereof - pensions and working conditions, but have these kinds of strikes ever achieved anything for its participants - are they effective?To discuss why unions use strikes as a strategy, we're joined by one of Britain's leading transport experts, Tony Travers, professor at the School of Public Policy at the London School of Economics and Political Science.We discuss the complexities of the negotiating process, Mayor Sadiq Khan's fabled “zero days of strikes” pledge back in 2016, government proposals to crack down on industrial action and what the future holds for passengers fares.

This week, after receiving a contract offer from state-owned Network Rail that union leaders described as "paltry," the RMT announced that workers at Network Rail and the train operating companies will engage in another day of strike action on Wednesday, July 27. With these strikes, and in the ongoing negotiations, workers are fighting for livable wages at a time when the cost of living is spiraling out of control and corporate executives and shareholders are stuffing their pockets with cash. As Adam Bychawski writes, "Train companies paid out nearly £800m to shareholders last year before telling rail unions that employees must take a real-terms pay cut for them to stay afloat." But workers are fighting for much more; they are fighting against years of austerity policies and corporate profit-generating schemes that have led to deteriorating working conditions and quality of service on the rails; they are fighting against further job losses for the sake of "modernization"'; and they are fighting for better, safer, more accessible, and well-staffed rail services for the people who depend on them.In this special panel episode, we speak with four rail workers and RMT members/officers—Mel Mullings, Clayton Clive, Cat Cray, and Gaz Jackson—about the strike and the importance of workers around the world standing in solidarity with strikers.Help us make our coverage of international labor stories even better by taking this quick, 90-second survey: https://therealnews.com/workers-of-the-world-90-second-audience-survey?article_url=https://therealnews.com/uk-rail-workers-prepare-for-second-round-of-strikes-podcastHelp us continue producing radically independent news and in-depth analysis by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-podSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/newsletter-podLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

Amazing FBA Amazon and ECommerce Podcast, for Amazon Private Label Sellers, Shopify, Magento or Woocommerce business owners,

Maximising your Amazon Profits Profit Maximisation on Amazon has always been a nice to have. In the current tough economic times, it's become a must-have. Is it the 1970s again? In the current climate of global economic uncertainty, it is more important than ever for ecommerce businesses to focus on profit maximisation. With inflation on the rise in both the UK and the US, and recent reports of strikes and walkouts in both countries, the need to maximize profits has never been more apparent. Here are some of the 1970s resonances: Oil price shocks due to war UK, esp US Inflation edging into double digits (currently 9+% annually in UK) Strikes: nationwide train strikes in UK (biggest since 1989) ( RMT union members voted to strike after their demand for a 7% pay rise was rejected in favour of a 3% offer) London Tube (Underground aka subway) multiple strikes staff at British Airways voted for a walkout again over pay USA: Strikes by Southwest Airlines pilots Why does profit maximisation matter? While it is important to increase revenue, this should not be done at the expense of profit. In fact, in difficult economic times it is even more important to focus on profit maximization. This is because profit is the best source of cash flow, and cash flow is the most important factor for business survival. Businesses without profits have little to no value. This is because profits are essential for businesses to grow and be successful. Finally, businesses without profits mean you can't pay yourself! How to increase your Amazon profits There are a number of ways to maximize profits, but one of the most important is pricing. Pricing matters pricing is a key factor in ensuring that your product is profitable. It is also important to understand how branding can impact your conversion rate and the price you can charge for your product. Business Model Another important factor to consider is the private label/custom business model. This is a model where businesses create their own products and sell them under their own brand. This can be a great way to maximize profits, but it is important to understand the limitations of this model. Clear financial numbers The best way to maximize profits is to have a clear understanding of your financial numbers and to make informed decisions about your business. A mastermind or community can help you understand the reality of your business and your colleagues' businesses. There are quite a few things that need to be considered when selling a business, even for advanced sellers. Profit maximization is important, especially in uncertain times. Running a lean ship is key to maximizing profits. The Amazon Profit Killer Quiz can help you determine which factors are causing the biggest loss of profits in your business. Solutions to these problems will also be provided.

Only 20% of trains across England, Scotland and Wales are running as the RMT union strike for three days over job cuts, pay and pensions. The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has said commuters must "stay the course" and urged rail bosses and unions to agree a deal. The BBC's Rowan Bridge gives us an update from Manchester Piccadilly station in the north west of England. And it's not just the UK. Yesterday, public sector health workers and teachers walked out over pay in Zimbabwe. There was also a nation-wide strike by trade unions in Belgium. Emeritus professor of economics at Ottowa University, Mario Seccareccia, explains. The Hungarian government is subsidising fuel to around $1.25 a litre. But the policy triggered a wave of fuel tourism, as drivers from neighbouring countries crossed the border to fill up their cars more cheaply. The government has said cheaper fuel would only be available to Hungarian-registered cars, something the EU says is discriminatory and could land Hungary in court. Gabor Egri, President of the Independent Petrol Station Association of Hungary, tells us how petrol station owners are reacting. India has been firefighting a diplomatic row with Arab countries because of derogatory remarks made by the spokesperson of the ruling Hindu nationalist party, the BJP, about the Prophet Muhammad. Following strong objections and protests in these countries the spokesperson has now been suspended. The BBC's Devina Gupta tells us how much this has impacted India's relations with the Gulf countries, where it does trade worth billions of dollars. A gigantic cruise ship being built in Germany could be sold for scrap metal before it ever sets sail. We find out more from Captain Ken Caine of shipbrokers QPS Marine Ships in Florida. A new book called "The No Club" explains how doing the jobs which keep managers happy day-to-day, can actually hold you back in your career.
