    Business Daily Meets: Krept

    Business Daily Meets: Krept

    UK-based rapper Krept grew up in a culture of gang violence, but has carved out a career for himself as a successful musician and entrepreneur. As one half of rap duo Krept & Konan, his songs, like Waste My Time, G-Love and Freak of the Week, have been streamed millions of times.

    Recently Krept – real name Casyo Johnson - has opened a restaurant in south London where he grew up, and the new father has even developed a skincare range for babies.

    He tells Dougal Shaw how he juggles the worlds of music and business.

    Growing opposition to mining in Panama

    Growing opposition to mining in Panama

    We look at growing opposition to mining in Latin America. The region is a leading producer of copper, silver, iron and lithium. But the environmental and social impact of mining have sparked protests in many countries and several governments have taken action.

    Costa Rica outlawed open pit mining in 2002 and in 2017 El Salvador became the first country in the world to ban all metal mining. Earlier this year, Honduras banned open pit mining and there are also calls for a mining moratorium in Panama and I start my report by visiting that country’s largest ever mine, which began operations three years ago.

    In this episode Grace Livingstone visits Cobre Panama, an enormous copper mine built in tropical forest on the Caribbean coast of Panama. We also hear from the people who farm the land close to Panama's mines and get the views of local politicians and experts on whether this kind of mining should continue.

    Napping on the job

    Napping on the job

    Deborah Weitzmann explores whether a quick nap break at work could make us all more productive.

    We head to Beijing where an employee tells us about her lunchtime ritual of napping beside her colleagues, and we’ll discover how the pandemic may have helped squash the stigma of sleeping in Western workplaces.

    Kate Mulligan, the boss of RestSpace, a company that designs innovative spaces to help people nod off at work, shows us their sleep pods. Also, Dr Guy Meadows, co-founder and clinical director at Sleep School, tells us practice makes perfect when it comes to napping.

    Floriade: Was it worth it?

    Floriade: Was it worth it?

    Floriade is one of the world's biggest gardening and horticulture expos - and it has cost taxpayers in the Dutch city of Almere nine times as much as originally budgeted.

    So why did organisers go ahead with the project, and was it still worth it – despite hugely disappointing visitor numbers?

    Matthew Kenyon talks to advocates and critics of an event which may be the last of its kind in the Netherlands.

    Presented and produced by Matthew Kenyon.

    Business Daily Meets: Mathieu Flamini

    Business Daily Meets: Mathieu Flamini

    International footballer Mathieu Flamini started a biotech company when he was still a professional player. Speaking to Sam Fenwick, Flamini reveals what he learnt from top football managers and how that knowledge has helped him perform in the boardroom.

    The former Arsenal, AC Milan and Olympique de Marseille player tells us he grew up by the sea and constantly seeing plastic washed up on the shore made him aware of sustainability and climate change. He says as a youngster he had two ambitions in life, to play professional football and become an environmentalist.

    In 2008, while still playing top flight football, Flamini co-founded, GFBiochemicals. It produces a chemical called levulinic acid which can be used to replace oil in a range of household products. The industry is worth billions of dollars.

Extremely low quality

ET one is billion times better

Enablers of animal oppression

That’s for all the anti vegan crap and for supporting factory farming and taking their money to spread biased non scientific misinformation. BBC a propaganda machine for the rich exploitative industries.
