The Hypnotist: Control Room for Appetite and Over-eating
The Christmas/New Year fortnight is infamous for over-eating, and for some people it just doesn't seem right to leave food behind. Adam Cox invites us to visit the control room of our mind, where conscious links can be drawn between our appetite and the amount of physical exertion we undertake. Using this logic, he argues that overeating and excess for no other purpose is ridiculous: so some exercise to balance it out over the next fortnight might be worth considering!

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Market reaction to decisions by Fed, BoE and ECB
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor, despite being in a broken-down car in freezing weather, talked to Simon Rose about the latest interest-rate decisions from the Fed, the Bank of England and the ECB. With growth weakening, all three tilted away from a more hawkish position. In the UK, the pound and banks were lower ahead of the MPC's announcement while housebuilders were stronger because interest rate rises might not be as great as they might have been.

The Business of Film: The Silent Twins, Emily & The Swimmers
James Cameron-Wilson laments a 4th week of plunging box office, despite several old Christmas favourites reappearing. He recommends the true story of The Silent Twins (#23), finding it audacious, original and beautifully simple. Another pick is the DVD release of the exquisitely-made Emily with Emma Mackey about Emily Bronte, which he found intellectually daring and moving. And he also is keen on Netflix's The Swimmers, a true story about Syrian sisters, Olympic hopefuls, who refused to be deterred by the civil war.

The Bigger Picture: The Nurses' Strike, Raab Bullying Claims & 2022 Summary
Political commentator Mike Indian looks at the nurses' strike. When all solutions to the NHS's problems are difficult, he feels emphasis should be on patient outcomes. He looks at the new bullying claims against Dominic Raab, wondering why the relationship between government and the civil service has deteriorated so markedly. And he summarises an extraordinary year which, he says, shows just how the Conservatives have thrown away most of the advantages they held.
