  • New antibody drug-conjugate could be used to target treatment-resistant childhood leukaemia

    Researchers at The University of Manchester have discovered that a protein (5T4) found on the surface of cells contributes to chemotherapy resistance in the most common type of childhood leukaemia. Using a novel approach, early testing shows that targeting the protein with an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) could hold promise in improving treatment.

  • Graphene membranes can make nuclear industry greener

    Graphene could help reduce the energy cost of producing heavy water and decontamination in nuclear power plants by over one hundred times compared with current technologies, University of Manchester research indicates.

    The new development could lead to the reduction of CO2 emissions associated with heavy water production by up to a million tonnes each year.

    Writing in Nature Communications, a team from the University of Manchester led by Dr. Marcelo Lozada-Hidalgo demonstrated fully scalable prototypes of graphene membranes capable of producing heavy water.

    The research shows that graphene-based membranes could make the production of heavy water more efficient, leading to greener and cheaper nuclear power.

    Producing heavy water which needed by the nuclear industry to generate clean-energy is an expensive process. Because of graphene’s unique material properties it has the potential to effectively separate sub-atomic particles making this process more efficient and cost-effective.

    Separating hydrogen isotopes is a huge task for nuclear fission and future fusion plants. Thousands of tons of isotopic mixtures are processed every year. Yet, producing just 1 kg of heavy water consumes enough energy to power an average American household for an entire year.

    Dr. Lozada-Hidalgo, University of Manchester research fellow said: “This is a crucial milestone in the path to taking this revolutionary technology to industrial application.

    “The potential gains are high enough to justify its introduction even in the highly conservative nuclear industry.”

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

  • Brexit and an Election WHAT NEXT ?
    Having an election before Brexit. This appears to gives the Government a chance to impose more ways of getting our money. ie rewrite the Manifesto. WHOSE THE PENSIONER VOTING CONSERVATIVE The country has also had to accept for years that dementia is not an illness and we have to pay for it. Really? Now The Government are […]
    Leaving The EU is much more complicated than we all thought. Do we continue in it and change the rules. Employment- We still need to allow employers employ Euro Nationals. We have do not have enough trained educated candidates in the UK. Extreme control over stopping immigration will be harmful and disaster for us. Trade- […]
  • Election is a bit of a gamble
    Half the country never wanted to get out of Europe. They still do not. They will not vote Labour because it would be a wasted vote. They could vote Lib Dem hoping that a power shift away from The Conservatives will dilute a Hard Brexit.
  • Brexit again it will not go away
    We had the vote because the politicians could not decide whether we stayed in The EU. Just over half of the country agreed to leave. We are really still in a position where half the country wants to stay in. How can we find a solution to sort this. The only answer is we have […]
  • Brexit is still not looking well
    The government seem to be doing what governments are good at. Do every thing the population do not want. Most people probably voted out because the EU would not listen and would not put some control over immigration. I say control I do not mean preventing or creating state registers. I agree Human rights also […]
