The Hypnotist: Hypnosis to Bet on Yourself and Your Future
In a session designed to build confidence for those in client-facing industries and in sales, Adam Cox looks at risk — reward using an analogy of visiting a casino. In contrast to putting a bet or stake at risk, he suggests that the only thing at risk in business development is your time, and that the rewards can be substantial. Such a mindset change can enable a more confident strategy for the future.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The consumer sector & Topps Tiles
Russell Pointon of Edison Group talks to Simon Rose about the consumer sector where the M&A activity is confirming that a lot of companies are looking cheap. Best off are those companies able to pass on inflation, such as Gregg's. While things should get better this year, the sector isn't out of the woods yet. While this week's trading update from Topps Tiles saw reduced estimates, Russell is encouraged by the minor fall in the share price. Although the environment is currently tough, the shares look cheap and should rebound sharply as things improve. There are notes on them and the consumer sector on the Edison website.

The Business of Film: Kung Fu Panda 4, Godzilla x Kong – The New Empire, Mothers' Instinct & Shirley

The Business of Film: Kung Fu Panda 4, Godzilla x Kong – The New Empire, Mothers' Instinct & Shirley
James Cameron-Wilson reports box office up another 65% with Kung Fu Panda 4 #1 with over £5m. The animation is superb and the jokes were just good enough to keep James awake. #2 is Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire with £4.1m has amazing CGI and decent human performances from the likes of Rebecca Hall but James wasn't overimpressed with this, the 38th Godzilla film. He found #6 Mothers' Instinct with Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway to be a stylish 1960s thriller in the Patricia Highsmith mould, enjoying it so much he didn't want it to end. On Netflix, he found Shirley, with Regina King as Shirley Chisholm, fighting to become the first black woman in the US Congress a noble and nuanced history lesson, if not entirely compelling as a film.

Gadgets & Gizmos: A timezone & crops for the Moon, AI nurses & Unidentified Submerged Objects
Tech expert Steve Caplin explains to Simon Rose why NASA believes the Moon should have its own time zone. NASA also plans to grow crops there in two years' time. Is space junk becoming dangerous to us on Earth? UFO spotters are turning their attention to the oceans. Amazon is ending its "just walk out" shops in the USA. NVIDIA is developing AI nurses while DrugGPT is hoping to provide doctors with second opinions. An Emo robot attempting to mimic human expressions turns out to be rather creepy. The invisibility shield is now available to buy. And Steve recommends an inexpensive micro sander kit for tricky angles.

The Bigger Picture: Why Sunak is so obsessed with Rwanda flights, GE polling & WASPI compensation
Political commentator Mike Indian considers why Rishi Sunak is so determined to get the Rwanda deportee flights off the ground, even to the extent of claiming it is more important than being part of the ECHR. Has he simply dug himself so big a hole that he can't get out again? Mike looks at the polling for the local elections and the General Election, asking if Labour really is on course for a landslide. And he wonders whether the next government will have to pay compensation to the WASPI women, which could be a considerable sum.

Thought for the Week: Private Equity undermining the UK’s role in global finance
The Bank of England has sounded its strongest warnings yet of the danger to financial stability from Private Equity, and the London Evening Standard simultaneously reported the serious attrition of London Stock Exchange trading activity. We explain the close connection between these, and call for a more global perspective. It's important that both Finance and Government rise to this challenge, so that the United Kingdom can continue to provide a leading role in the development of the global manifesto for which we called on 2nd January.
