The Hypnotist: Hypnosis for Overthinkers — The 'What If' Driver
Anxiety for the future can become a self-fulfilling prophecy: that's what's known as an 'anticipatory fear strategy'. It can hold you back and deny you opportunities. If those 'What If' thoughts could be entertaining, inspiring, they could give rise to useful ideas — turning 'Glass Half-Empty' into 'Glass Half-Full'.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: A J Bell & Epwin
Neil Shah of Edison Group highlights a couple of companies he thinks might interest private investors. Many will have dealt with broker A J Bell which Neil thinks is doing well, being the 2nd-biggest execution-only broker. They've grown market share by lowering their prices but, given the drive for people to take more control of their finances, he finds them relatively inexpensive. And, although hardly a sexy business, he likes Epwin, which largely makes products for building repair and maintenance, such as doors and windows. They are exceptionally well run and go from strength to strength, are on an undemanding valuation and yield almost 6%.

The Business of Film: Challengers, There's Still Tomorrow & 1927's The Cat And The Canary

The Business of Film: Challengers, There's Still Tomorrow & 1927's The Cat And The Canary
James Cameron-Wilson reports on a becalmed box office. New #1 is the tennis drama Challengers with Zendaya. Although a tennis fan, James became irritated by the cinematic pyrotechnics which got in the way of the drama. He was amazed to see the period-set black and white Italian drama There's Still Tomorrow – Italy's top film last year – released in 142 cinemas. An homage to neo-realist post-war Italian cinema about the role of women in a patriarchical society, he considers it a modern masterpiece, hard-hitting but still with heart, humour and warmth. He also loves the beautifully restored home release of 1927's silent film The Cat And The Canary, the hugely-influential precursor of all dark house comedy thrillers, which is also packed with glorious extras.

Thought for the Week: The Illusion of Legacy

Thought for the Week: The Illusion of Legacy
Voyager-1's legacy includes greetings in 55 languages, 35 sounds from life on Earth (such as whale songs, laughter, etc.), 90 minutes of music including everything from Mozart and Bach to Chuck Berry and Blind Willie Johnson, all dating back to its launch in 1977. There are also 115 images of life on Earth and recorded greetings from then-US President Jimmy Carter (1924– ) and then-UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim (1918–2007). It would take about 70,000 years to reach the nearest star to our solar system. In contrast, most tombstones in British graveyards date from well before the Voyager-1 launch, but for most of them it's no longer possible to discern who they commemorate or when they were erected. Burial grounds occupy over 19,000 acres in England, but the legacy they seek to preserve is forgotten within a very small number of generations. Background music: 'Elegy' by Wayne Jones

This Is Money: Is the FTSE 100 finally having its moment in the sun?
You can wait a long time for a FTSE 100 record high but for peak-starved British investors this week delivered a bonanza. Four record highs were racked up by the FTSE 100, with only Wednesday's slight dip spoiling what would have been a perfect run over a week. The return to new highs on Thursday came as a mega-mining merger bid arrive from BHP for Anglo American - and that was followed swiftly by one of the UK's few tech stars Darktrace announcing it had accepted a bid on Friday. Are these the catalysts that fund manager Nick Train was talking about when he said it could take a big takeover to shake UK stocks out of their slumber and get the world investing in Footsie companies again? Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert look and what's moving the UK market, why it is judged to be cheap and whether you should invest. Plus, the top investment trusts for retirement investing and the latest twist in the state pension top-ups saga. Should we cut inheritance tax - or at least sort out the mess - as the take soars? And finally, are you a backseat driver? See if you can pass the test.
