Jessica Wright was fourth in the junior girls’ 200m backstroke and Catherine Denard and Beth Grant were both sixth in the 1977 girls’ backstroke and 1978 girls’ butterfly respectively.
For the boys, Robert Chapman did well to win the bronze medal in the 1982 boys’ butterfly and Philip Traviss brought his bronze tally up to three with third place in the 1980 boys’ freestyle.
Andrew McMullen completed the scoring for the junior boys with a fourth place in the 1980 freestyle.
Robert Blackaby rounded off for the boys with a good fourth place in the junior 100m freestyle.
IT has been a good Surrey Championships for Haslemere, with exceptionally good results by the youngest swimmers born in 1980, 1981 and 1982.
Overall Haslemere gave their best performance ever in these county age group championships and taking fifth position behind Leatherhead, Woking, Dorking and Cranleigh.
This augurs well for the future and should be reflected in some good team gala results this coming season. Waverley championships
The 1992 Waverley Championships were swum at Cranleigh last weekend and Haslemere swimmers came back with 27 medals, just reward for the time and effort they put into their training. The medallists were:
MOTOR RACING
Strong start by Oates in new class
Local driver David Oates from Four Marks, Alton has made a promising start to his first season competing in the prestigious Group N British Saloon Car Championship.
Oates is not without experience, having successfully campaigned a variety of cars in production saloons, also winning the 1991 class championship of the Ward Replicar Series.
Round 2 of the championship at Brands Hatch on Sunday was supported by a grid of 30 cars and the race was full of incidents during the 20 laps. Oates finished a deserved third in class.
With the points gained from round 1, Oates now holds second in class and looks forward to round 3 at Silverstone on April 4th and 5th and supporting British Touring Cars.
Oates is seeking further sponsorship in his aim to remain competitive with the front-running teams, although half the budget has already been obtained. David Oates going well in a new saloon car racing class.
GOLF
Liphook Ladies
Liphook Ladies held their annual White Elephant Foursomes Stableford last week.
This always proves to be one of the most popular and well-supported events in their golfing calendar, with every competitor bringing and winning a prize.
This year the prize table was especially attractive and the wide variety of “white elephants” presented quite a problem of which to choose for the higher scoring competitors. The first four pairs were.

I owe my life to both of…

I owe my life to both of them, and we’re all good friends.
But I feel I’m much too young to marry and settle down now, at the start of my career. Don’t you agree?”
“Absolutely,” we responded, and thanked her for taking time from her busy schedule to talk with us.
Then we left the Hominid Room and its lifeless fossils and walked together out of the Museum.
Ruby straddled a child’s moped and, as though mounted on a Wellsian Time Machine and skilfully manoeuvred into the heavy traffic on Cromwell Road. CAN A BEE BEHAVE INTELLIGENTLY?
James L. Gould and Carol G. Gould
Most ” though not all ” of a bee’s behaviour is the result of innate programming and makes no intellectual demands.
But like every other species, including the human and the bee is just as clever as it needs to be.
WHEN A foraging honey bee finds a new source of nectar or pollen and she returns to the hive to recruit help.
She performs a ritualised dance that tells the other bees the distance, direction, and quality of the food.
They “memorise” the information she supplies, process it somehow, and then, compensating for crosswinds and the movement of the Sun, fly out on their own directly to the flower patch.
This behaviour looks on the surface like a complex communication system, and the participants seem to be acting at least intelligently, even rationally.
The more we learn about bees’ capabilities and though and the more glaring their limitations become, and the question of what constitutes intelligence emerges as a central issue in understanding behaviour.

The third triplet followed suit seventeen…

The third triplet followed suit seventeen years later.
Of the twins, one contracted the condition when 12 years old while the other developed it 36 years later.
Both of the patients who were diagnosed late in life had the abnormal antibodies in their blood for several years before the condition became obvious.
Exactly how the antibodies are involved in the development of diabetes remains uncertain.
According to Dr George Eisenbarth, who headed the Joslin team, a simpler version of the test may be developed within the next year, “We and other labs are most certainly working on it and to predict who’s at the most risk of developing diabetes,” he declared.
Because juvenile diabetes runs in families and the brothers and sisters of victims are likely candidates for the testing.
Eisenbarth’s group has already identified two youngsters with the antibodies, and is monitoring them to see if their production of insulin starts to fall.
Once that happens, it may be possible to delay or halt the development of the condition with drugs designed to suppress the body’s immune system.
“In the future, we hope to try a number of relatively simple manoeuvres to see if we can slow that destructive process to prevent diabetes,” says Eisenbarth.
However, in an accompanying leader in the Journal of the American Medical Association , Dr Also Rossini of the University of Massachusetts Medical school cautions that little is known about the safety of immunosuppression for human diabetics. Antibodies beat off rejection of blood cells
DOCTORS are claiming a new success for monoclonal antibodies in fighting the rejection of transplants by the human body.
Last week a team from Boston’s children’s hospital announced that they had, for the first time, used the treatment to halt a “graft-versus-host” attack that was actually in progress.
“We were able to stop what was clearly a fatal reaction,” announced Dr Fred Rosen.
The patient was Bryan Ahlers, an eight day-old boy from New York, who was born with severe physical problems.
During an effort to overcome one of those problems ” a heart defect ” surgeons gave the boy a blood transfusion.
Almost immediately he developed a lobster-red rash and the first sign of what is known as graft-versus host disease.
Physicians found that Bryan had been born without a properly-working thymus gland.
This left him defenceless against the foreign white blood cells in the transfused blood. The cells immediately attacked his organs.

After removing the pan or urinal, give the patient a bowl and water for washing their hands.
Also give them the opportunity to wash their bottom, but be prepared to do this for them if they are unable to.
Make sure they are left comfortable in bed or in a chair when the task is completed. Helping someone with constipation
As we grow older, it takes longer for faeces to travel through the digestive tract and this may lead to constipation.
Although it isn’t necessary for a person to have a bowel movement every day and regular movements should be encouraged.
Constipation is uncomfortable, it may cause incontinence, it may cause confusion in someone who is mentally frail.
If a person becomes suddenly confused, always check that they are not constipated.
Where constipation comes on suddenly, or there is blood in the stools, always ask for medical advice.
A person who is constipated may also be incontinent of faeces because there is leaking around the hard mass.
Other causes may be mental frailty and diarrhoea caused by food poisoning, as old people are more susceptible to food poisoning through salmonella and listeria organisms.
Ask for medical advice or treatment if someone you care for has severe constipation. Try a change of diet
The first approach is to stimulate the bowels to become more active through diet.
Ask the person whether they already eat enough fibre and encourage them to eat more if necessary ” and this doesn’t mean just putting bran on cereal at breakfast. Many people dislike the taste of bran and find it hard to swallow.
There’s fibre in fruit, especially stringy or pithy fruit like bananas and oranges, in beans, peas, lentils, cabbages and spinach and in wholemeal bread and cakes or porridge.
A constipated person should also be encouraged to drink more fluid ” at least1 to 2 litres (3 to 5 pints) a day.
It may help people to drink more if you measure out this amount into a stock of glasses or cups and so that they can see for themselves how much this means.
NOTE Some people deliberately restrict their intake of fluid and thinking that this may prevent urinary incontinence. They may need reassuring that if they drink more liquid this will not occur.
Always try a change of diet before giving laxatives, which should always be prescribed by a doctor or nurse.
Laxatives upset normal bowel-emptying patterns and can make the condition harder to treat. KEY POINTS
Incontinence may be caused by disease or infection, or because a person finds it difficult to reach or use a toilet. Incontinence can be managed and often cured if the reasons for it are known.
If one of your clients has incontinence problems, ask for help from a continence adviser or community nurse.

Dogs without masters and the damage they cause are.

Dogs without masters and the damage they cause are.
of course, no novelty.
But the quantitative explosion in the feral dog population in Italy has been accompanied by a qualitative change.
“Certainly, we’ve always had strays,” comments Luigi Boitani and the Roman zoologist who directed the wild dog study, “but this time were facing something different.
These animals are moving into the ecological niche left vacant by the disappearance of the last big predators from Western Europe: wolves, bears and lynx.”
The behaviour of stray dogs, according to Boitani, is quite different from that of feral animals.
Strays range alone or in small groups of two to four members and prefer to live in and around villages and small towns.
Active during the day as well as at night and they appear to adjust their pace to the human by-products on which they depend and such as scraps from butchers shops and other handouts.
The chance to study a geographically convenient dog population which is not dependent on man is attracting researchers from other parts of Europe.
David MacDonald of Oxford University and his student, Jeff Carr, have begun a long-term behavioural study of these non-domesticated dogs.
The Italian group has been principally interested in following the dynamics of population growth among the feral animals. The Italians see many reasons for the sharp increase in numbers. One is the disappearance of the traditional predators themselves. They kept the feral dog population in check.
Indeed, dog still makes up about 3 per cent of the diet of Italian wolves.
Another factor contributing to the wild dog problem is the progressive abandonment of the countryside as people retreat to big and medium sized cities.
Large parts of Italy (the Apennine foothills are a prime example) are wilder now than they were a century ago.
The army of herders and small farmers that once destroyed wild dogs as a question of principle has gone off to work at FIAT.
The increasing prosperity of those humans that have remained in the countryside is also contributory.
Their garbage dumps are the single most important source of nutrition for feral dogs. Whatever the reasons and the dogs are there and in growing numbers.
Aside from the economic damage they cause to herders and they are-beginning to cause other problems.
Actual attacks on humans are rare so far and more likely to be the work of strays than of truly feral animals. Genuinely wild dogs avoid the company of men.
One of the problems created by the new population of feral dogs is exotic, but instructive.
The Italian branch of the World Wildlife Fund sponsors a wolf group, which is attempting to preserve that animal.
According to the group and the biggest single menace to the Italian wolf is competition from wild dogs. This competition is not so much for food and territory as it is genetic.
Wolves and dogs can interbreed and though in an ideal natural state they prefer not to.
Still, when a mere handful of wolves is submerged in an enormous population of wild dogs and these encounters necessarily become more common.

As with size-confusion and there is no…

As with size-confusion and there is no evidence that dazzle-confusion puts off a hungry lion which is close enough to experience it.
It has been claimed that the vivid pattern of black and white stripes creates a dazzle effect and rather like the Op Art paintings of Bridget Riley and that this disconcerts the attacking predator at close quarters. This is a possibility, but in practice there is no evidence for it.
Another suggestion is that the stripes confuse the lion by making it difficult to tell where one zebra ends and another begins.
The herd tends to flee together and the stripes are thought to jumble up the individual shapes and make the fleeing herd look like one great mass of black and white patterning.
Since lions always like to isolate one individual from the herd before attacking and this theory also makes sense on paper, but reality does not bear it out because lions can all too easily single out animals for the kill.
This is what happens during a successful chase, as one individual falls behind or gets separated in some way from the rest.
Perhaps and then and the stripes have nothing to do with defence against predators.
Perhaps a herd of all-grey zebras would fare no better or worse where killers are concerned. The answer instead may lie within the world of zebras.
Could it be that the stripes are intended not for the eyes of lions but for the eyes of other zebras?
One idea that supports this view sees the stripes as a means for the zebra to identify which species it belongs to. There are three main species surviving today.
Up in the north of the range there is the big Grevy’s zebra, with its very fine, narrow stripes.
Over the whole of the middle of the range there is the common zebra, with many local races, all with big bold stripes.
And down in the highlands of the south there is the extremely rare mountain zebra, with bold but more vertically arranged flank stripes.
To human experts it is possible to identify each species at a glance, but to more casual observers a zebra is just a zebra, and this reflects the weakness of this argument.
For if species identification was the function of the stripes they would have diverged much more in the three cases.

Who will pay for the satellites?

Who will pay for the satellites?
Britain will stump up 14 per cent, France and West Germany both say they will pay 22 per cent . Other nations have agreed smaller contributions.
Unless France and West Germany ” traditionally western Europe’s biggest spenders on space technology ” can be persuaded to pay more and the project may not go ahead. One carrot is the siting of the Eumetsat headquarters.
The other nations may agree to place this at ESA’s satellite operations centre just outside Frankfurt ” if the Germans agree to shell out more cash.
A second problem concerns the two polar-orbiting weather craft run by the US’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The US says that it intends to axe one satellite.
But the news has dismayed European countries.
They require data from the polar craft as the geostationary vehicles cannot “see” very far north.
One polar craft would provide coverage of a spot on the Earth only every 12 hours and twice the period obtained with a two-satellite system. This could have a big effect on weather forecasts.
Britain is especially worried as the Meteorological Office in Bracknell requires data from both polar craft to provide world-wide weather forecasts.
The Met office has just agreed a prestigious deal with the International Civil Aviation Organisation to provide weather data to airlines all over the world. One option would be for Europe to fund some of NOAA’s satellite activities.
Alternatively, countries such as Britain could provide space hardware or equipment for ground stations.
Complicating the whole issue is the fact that the US is still deciding on the future for all its remote-sensing satellites. These include the Landsat Earth-mapping vehicles.
The US government is considering selling off all the satellites to a private company. Comsat and the Washington satellite firm, has put in a bid for all the craft.
