Conversation is good for the mind

Earlier this week, a new conversation about mental health appeared on social media and in the news. Heads Together, a charity to raise awareness of mental health by Prince William, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cambridge, released a series of films showing conversations about mental health. These included conversations with Prince William, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cambridge, Stephen Fry who has Bipolar Disorder and Lady Gaga who herself has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. All of which are very revealing. The Duchess and Prince Harry were right to say having that conversation is like a medicine. I can subscribe to this viewpoint myself, thinking back to my experiences. In 2007 and 2008, I was unfortunate to suffer two spells of depression. Both fuelled by consuming unhealthy levels of caffeine. The first being the worst – to the point that I was crying uncontrollably, having fits of rage, irrational thoughts attacking me like vicious Rottweilers with a rabid bite. At one st...

Conversation is good for the mind

Like attracts like: the Law of Attraction and me

"Thoughts become things" and "like attracts like". Two phrases you'll be very familiar with if you have heard of the Law of Attraction, or The Secret if you watched the Rhonda Byrne film. Simplistically, the Law of Attraction is a thought philosophy that centres around of how a person's thinking attracts certain experiences into his/her life. For example, if you are predominantly positive then you are likely to attractive positive people, events and circumstances into your life. Conversely, if you are predominantly negative then you are likely attractive negative people, events and circumstances into your life. So, if you think about being in debt you will attract more debt and financial difficulty into your life. Or if you think that your life is great, full of opportunities then you will attract positivity and opportunities into your life. It's a topic that I talk about Manchester businesswoman Kirsty Kerins on episode 17 of Over The Mic [shameless plug I know, http://overthemicpo...

Walking away from it all

Over a week ago on a Friday lunchtime in the day job. A time to take much needed restandto digest the world's eventsas I trawl around the many newswebsites. I then received a text from my father to say that Nico Rosberg, after winning his first Formula One World Drivers Championship that previousSunday at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, had retired with immediate effect. At first, I thought it was a joke or another example of "fake news" you see surfacing across the net like faeces popping up in the sewers. Quick look at the news sites proved that this wasn't an early April Fools. Nicohadretired. The news sent a huge shockwave across motorsport and sport generally come to think of it. Nico made his announcement at the FIA Prize Giving conference in Vienna earlier that day which in turn appeared onsocial media. The long and short of it, according to him, was "I have climbed my mountain, I am on my peak, so this feels right". He began to think about that possibility after winning the Japane...

Podcasting: past, present and future

Today wasInternational Podcast Day - an important day for me. Both as a podcaster and a listener. As a listener, I've seen how far podcasting has come since the early 2000s; and fromthe days when I started downloading and listening to them with my Juice podcatcher software for Windows XP (don't give me a zimmer frame just yet). My first podcast download was a BBC World Service global news bulletin read by Ian Purden in October 2006. This was during the BBC's three yearlong podcasting trial. Then I went onto discover Adam "Podfather" Curry with theDaily Source Code, No Agenda, Cameron Reilly's The Podcast Network, G'Day World,and Dan Klass' The Bitterest Pill - the first podcast I heardincluded a rant about the then newly formed Twitter. I still listen to them. Only this time, rather than downloading them onto my PC, then syncingto my mp3 player, they come straight to my tablet via Antennapod. I also listen to Amateur Traveller, The Audacity to Podcast, Slow Russian and many more. As...

Podcasting: past, present and future

Fancy a brew, your 357th one?

Earlier today, during the day job, I received an email from a colleague about today [the 23rd of September] being the 347th anniversary of tea in Great Britain. That highlighted two things for me: I aman ignorant pigwhen it comes to British history - I didn't even know Google made a neat doodle to celebrate this quintessentiallyBritish activity. Reading up on tea history for this post opened my eyes to how itwent from itsFar Eastern origins to where "fancy a brew" [or fancy a cup of tea for non-Brits reading this] is now part of the British lexicon. Ok, here's a bit of tea history in brief, capsule sized form: 2737 BC: According to legend, tea was discovered by Chinese Emperor Shen Nong. Origins were formulated during the ancient China era. 1600: The East India Company - soon to become the largest organisation in the world of its time - was formed. 23/09/1658: The first advert for tea was published in London newspaperMercurius Politicus,branding tea as "China drink". Somewhere in th...

Fancy a brew, your 357th one?

It's a lot of dough but hey, welcome to the TV business!

If you're in the UK, you might have seen the news of the Great British Bake Off - the show where people bakefancy cakes in order to become Britain's best amateur baker - madethe move from the BBC to Channel 4 (the UK's second public service broadcaster and funded by advertising) after its production company, Love Productions, signeda £25 million per year deal over the next three years. Naturally, like with anything remotely popular, a portion of usBrits found an excuse to be outraged [which that in itself is another post for another time] and took to social media to make theirfeelings known. Mainly for the production company "selling out" the show and the dreaded thought of adverts interrupting the rise of flour in the oven. Why such a fuss over a reality TV show? Well it's regarded by many as a national treasure backed up by viewing figures peaking at 13.4 million for the2015 final.In today's multichannel TV terms, that'sreally good and only rivalled by TheX Factor or Britain's Go...
