Modern Mindset

Modern Mindset: The face of resilience
Adam Cox is joined by influential speaker, humanitarian, and ambassador for the charity Changing Faces, Tulsi Vagjiani. Tulsi shares the story of her second-ever flight crashing in India, which led to the death of her parents and younger brother. While that was devastating enough, Tulsi then had to deal with the severe burns to almost half her face and body. This led to years of painful skin graft surgeries and extensive name-calling and bullying at school. Tulsi explains her emotional journey of resilience from feeling like an outcast to owning her scars and story, finding a purpose, and having the ability to make a difference in the lives of others.

This is Money: Online supermarket battle intensifies with forthcoming M&S and Ocado tie-up
Since the start of lockdown in March, more Britons have ordered supermarket shopping online to be delivered to their door to dodge the crowds and beat the queuing mayhem. This could be perfect time for Marks & Spencer, who will start its long-awaited tie-up with Ocado at the start of September, as the latter ends its 20 year long relationship with Waitrose. M&S is starting a 'back to basics' assault, lowering the prices on everyday items and it comes as its clothing division continues to struggle. Meanwhile, most major supermarkets are now offering same day – and in some cases, next hour – deliveries, are the days of doing the 'big shop' in large stores over? Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost take a look. This week saw a shock rise in the cost of living: why has it happened, where will the inflation figure go next and just how many savings accounts now offering more than 1 per cent interest? Seven US firms - Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google parent Alphabet, Microsoft and Tesla – have seen stratospheric value growth this year. Is it another dotcom bubble waiting to happen? The Department for Transport is mulling over how to allow self-driving cars on the motorway from next year, we take a look at how it works. And lastly, we celebrate our pensions agony uncle Steve Webb, who this week wrote his 200th This is Money column.

Mini Mindset: The real cause of pandemics?
Adam Cox is joined by Juliet Gellatley, Founder and Director of Viva!, to explain why 3 in 4 new or emerging infectious diseases come from animals – mainly from wildlife trade and factory farming. Like SARS, bird flu, swine flu, Ebola and AIDS, Coronavirus originated in animals. 56 zoonotic diseases are responsible for an estimated 2.5 billion cases of human illness and 2.7 million deaths a year. Campaigners warn humanity will always be at risk to future pandemics while factory farms and wildlife markets continue. In response to this, animal rights group Viva! have launched their new 3 in 4 campaign, in a bid to raise public awareness of the dangers of continued meat consumption.
