Louise Minchin.  Charlie Stayt.  Sally Nugent Sport
Stephanie McGovern. Carol Kirkwood tricky ice, snow. cold winds.

Stephanie McGovern visits a Pharmaceutical Lab to check out what is being attempted to find a cure to kill off these deadly flue bugs.

"You'll be wanting to know what I had for breakfast next ...
In the RPSunday January 18 2015: A Feature with Flat racehorse trainer Sir Mark Prescott: 

"A dark horse to follow in 2015? Certainly not!
Noted: Sir Mark does not attempt to translate what "A dark horse" actually means!

One of the questions Sir Mark was asked:

"Which person do you most admire and why?"

"In history, Sir Alexander Fleming, whose invention of antibiotics has saved half the civilised world. 

"More recently Gordon Wilson, who was blown up with his daughter Maria in an IRA outrage at Enniskillen. He held her hand as she died and afterwards proclaimed, "I bear them no malice. He died in 1995. 

And today, probably nurse Pauline Cafferkey, who contacted Ebola while leaving her homeland to save children's lives thousands of miles away." 

Just to add a further question asked here: There were a total of 25 questions in all.
"If you were taking someone racing for the first time, where would you go and why?
Fontwell. I'd stand them at the intersection to watch a chase so they could see the four fences jumped each circuit, close up, and thus respect the courage and skill of man and beast forever. " Yes, yes, yes.

"Fleming grew the mould in a pure culture and found that it produced a substance that killed a number of disease-causing bacteria. He identified the mould as being from the Penicillium genus, and, after some months of calling it "mould juice", named the substance it released penicillin on 7 March 1929.[13] The laboratory in which Fleming discovered and tested penicillin is preserved as the Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum in St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington.
He investigated its positive anti-bacterial effect on many organisms, and noticed that it affected bacteria such as staphylococci and many other Gram-positive pathogens that cause scarlet fever, pneumonia, meningitis and diphtheria, but not typhoid fever or paratyphoid fever, which are caused by Gram-negative bacteria, for which he was seeking a cure at the time. It also affected Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which causes gonorrhoea although this bacterium is Gram-negative.
Fleming published his discovery in 1929, in the British Journal of Experimental Pathology,[14] but little attention was paid to his article. Fleming continued his investigations, but found that cultivating penicillium was quite difficult, and that after having grown the mould, it was even more difficult to isolate the antibiotic agent. Fleming's impression was that because of the problem of producing it in quantity, and because its action appeared to be rather slow, penicillin would not be important in treating infection. Fleming also became convinced that penicillin would not last long enough in the human body (in vivo) to kill bacteria effectively. Many clinical tests were inconclusive, probably because it had been used as a surface antiseptic. In the 1930s, Fleming’s trials occasionally showed more promise,[15] and he continued, until 1940, to try to interest a chemist skilled enough to further refine usable penicillin. Fleming finally abandoned penicillin, and not long after he did, Howard Florey and Ernst Boris Chain at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford took up researching and mass-producing it, with funds from the U.S. and British governments. They started mass production after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. By D-Day in 1944, enough penicillin had been produced to treat all the wounded in the Allied forces." Some people found to be allergic to penicillin, same as some racehorses in training. Resulting in sever side effects.


Rory Stewart MP Challenges Britain's Defence Effort Contribution

Danny Alexander MP for Lib-Dem's talks to Charlie Stayt.

"I am fortunate to enjoy the work I do, and I have always had a particular interest in many of the issues I come across on a daily basis in the constituency – especially housing, transport for rural communities and protecting our environment. At Westminster, and in my work as a Minister, I am working to put Highland values of fairness and responsibility at the heart of Government policy for the whole UK." Read more
