Modern Mindset:  Start Network
Since the most recent escalation of the conflict in Gaza in October 2023, the charity Start Network has received over 60 other global humanitarian crisis alerts, that you may not have heard about. For one reason or another, these global events don’t get the coverage they deserve and as a result, miss out on necessary donations and aid. But Start Network are doing things differently, and this year marks the 10th anniversary of their Start Fund. Joining Adam Cox now to discuss this with the CEO of Start Network Christina Bennett.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: AO World and Renew Holdings
Neil Shah of Edison Group discusses the latest changes to his amazingly successful model portfolio The Illuminator. Although still of interest Rolls-Royce and Rightmove are ejected to make room for two newcomers. Online appliance retailer AO World has embarked on a turnaround and its guidance is optimistic, showing a great increase in profitability. Possessing a good balance sheet, they should earn a decent return for shareholders. Renew Holdings is a boring, but worthwhile compounder. It's a market leader in its area of engineering and construction, a fragmented market place. It has a high level of recurring revenue, well-disciplined management and will benefit from UK infrastructure spending. More here: https://www.edisongroup.com/insight/the-illuminator-march-2024/

The Business of Film: Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, In the Land of Saints & Sinners, Prom Dates
James Cameron-Wilson laments the UK box office, down 32% because of the sunny weather. It meant Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes only took £3.8m. Despite his loneliness in the cinema, James found it a miraculous piece of cinematic magic; clever, multi-layered, exciting and often funny, with amazing production design. On Netflix, he was disappointed by In the Land of Saints & Sinners, a plodding thriller with Liam Neeson. And he found Disney Plus's Prom Dates to have a few amusing bits but to be far too crude and predictable.

The Bigger Picture: Starmer's six pledges, underinvestment in infrastructure & who is pulling Labour's strings?
Political commentator Mike Indian discusses Keir Starmer's six pledges as the long General Election campaign gets underway. He looks at why underinvestment in infrastructure in the UK is coming back to haunt us, offering some suggestions at ways to improve things. And he looks at who is pulling the strings in Labour behind the scenes at think tank Labour Together. Although Labour may mock the chaos of the Conservative Party, Mike wonders how turbulent the broad church of the Labour Party will be when it is in power.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Another leap for AI, how to drink without getting drunk & battling noisy neighbours
Steve Caplin is excited by ChatGPT's latest innovation which combines text, audio and video and talks to you uncannily realistically. He also explains which AI system you should use and points out that AI is not guaranteed to tell the truth. There's the video portal between Dublin and New York which had to be shut because of mischievous activity. Scientists have found a way to consume alcohol without getting drunk. MIT is working on a way to combat noisy neighbours. There may be a way to stop satellite jammers blinding planes' navigation systems. And Ordnance Survey is incorporating local nicknames to its maps.

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Recognising Individual Achievement
Individual achievement is recognised in many walks of life, and that recognition spurs people on to achieve even greater things. With education, good exam results and university entrance are celebrated, but this doesn't do much for those who find it difficult to get started in the first place. That's why The Share Foundation's introduction of incentivised learning is so important for young people in care, achieving an attitudinal transformation as they progress through the six-step Stepladder course. We need acceptance of incentivised learning to break the cycle of deprivation. Background music: 'Everything Has a Beginning' by Joel Cummins
