Eight days before he officially takes office, the incoming President Donald Trump took aim at the intelligence services for allegedly leaking information relating to him, blasted media organisations as 'garbage' and peddlers of 'fake news', denied there would be any conflict of interest between his office and his business empire and fired warnings to big pharma companies and the motor industry once again. Dan Lippman, reporter with Politico and co-author of Politico Playbook, gives his highlights. It is not just President elect Trump who is upset with a major corporation, India's external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj is on the warpath too, with the internet giant Amazon the subject of her ire. Anahita Mukherji, former assistant editor at The Times of India, tells us why. A Bangladesh court has issued a judgement, requiring doctors to type their prescriptions or write them in block capitals. In an age when so many of us have access to computers, is handwriting really still an important skill, and if so are we any good at it? Jan Olsen, an occupational therapist in Maryland and the founder of Handwriting Without Tears, a teaching programme in the US is here to tell us why it is. The BBC's Roger Hearing is joined by Parag Khanna, author of the new book Technocracy in America: Rise of the Info-State, and August Turak, entrepreneur and author of The Business Secrets of Trappist Monk.
