Dr. Helen Parker

York University


Could you live without your mobile phone? Maybe. More seriously, could you live without batteries, medicines or transport? Without these everyday commodities life would be significantly more difficult. It might not appear obvious but these items have something in common: they all require metals in their production or use. Worryingly, the future supply of some of these metals is under threat putting at risk our environment and our way of life. There are ways of overcoming or lessening this danger which involves looking to unusual and unconventional places for metals.
My talk will cover many aspects of metals, such as: How would lowering ore grade affect the environment? Are our current metal recovery practices sustainable? What & where are unconventional stocks of metals? What is the “urban mining” concept? And finally some examples of greener metal recovery techniques using bacteria and plants. Hopefully by the end of my talk you will know the answer to the question: can metals really grow on trees?
Dr Helen Parker works at the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence at the University of York as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant. Helen graduated with a MChem (Hons) from the University of Leicester and she gained a PhD in Green Chemistry at the University of York. Her primary research areas include elemental sustainability of metals specifically focused on the platinum group metals."

Café Scientifique, Stockton on Tees welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds. Our aim is to provide an informal forum in a relaxed café setting to engage in the latest ideas in science and technology.
The format is for the invited speaker to give a presentation of about 30 minutes. There follows a short break to refill drinks etc, after which the audience ask questions and share ideas using roving microphones.
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month except December and August. The suggested donation to cover expenses is £4 and is collected at the break. Students are welcomed free.

January 2014


Title : American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
Average Star Rating : 4
Reviews Received :
Plot :. A path that leads Alice Blackwell and her husband, Charlie Blackwell to the White House which touches race, class, wealth, previlege and responsibilities of being the first wife.
Likes/Dislikes : This book takes us through part of Alices life, her younger years, then meeting Charlie and then through their married life into Charlie’s presidency. I enjoyed the first part of this book, although some of the descriptions did seem long and drawn out. I thought it was a good portrait of a young girl’s life and the trials and tribulations that can happen. However, once the Blackwells were in the Whitehouse, Alice’s story became very one sided and she became suspicious of everyone, thinking people were being friends because they wanted something from her and her husband, the President.

Currently our Adult Reading Groups are reading:

Adult Hardback Fiction: Bridget Jones : Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

Adult Paperback Fiction : The Black Box by Michael Connelly

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction: My Life by David Jason

Children’s Fiction: Demon Dentist by David Walliams

Reader’s Review: I recently read Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones : Mad about the Boy. I so wish I'd written this book. Charming, funny, unbearably sad in places - I wept buckets at 'the owl' - I absolutely loved it. It was no mean feat to kill off Mark Darcy and continue the story but I thought it was wonderful and I realised just how much I'd missed Bridget and wanted more of her. Funnily enough I was visualising Hugh Grant and Renee Z all the way through. You'll never can please everyone all of the time when you write a book, but Miss F, you've certainly pleased me. I loved this book so much, Bridget Jones at her best. I have never laughed and cried so much! Thank you for bringing her back. I hope to God someday somebody will make a film based on this book and make due justice to this storyline.

Title : The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
Average Star Rating : 4
Reviews Received :
Plot :. Harold receives a letter from Queenie, an old friend, telling him that she has cancer and she is dying. Harold decides to wait in the hope that she will live longer.

Likes/Dislikes : Of course this book is much more about Harold’s walk it takes him on much more than a physical journey and he has time to reflect on his life with Maureen. He also meets people along the way and ends up giving away his possessions, realising he needs very little to get by. I really enjoyed this book and think most people will find something the story to enjoy.

Title : Perfect People by Peter James
Average Star Rating : 4
Reviews Received :
Plot :. In this story the main characters John and Naomi Klaesson us Dr Dettore to genetically modify the genes of their children to ensure they are free from a particular genetically passed illness.
Likes/Dislikes : An excellent read. I could have read it in one sitting. At first glance it may sound far fetched but when one reads of latest genetic developments, it is does not feel improbable or far fetched. I could not stop wondering how it would end. A different kind of writing and I enjoyed it.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Never G Back by Lee Child

Adult Paperback Fiction : Backlash by Lynda La Plante

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Save With Jamie by Jamie Oliver

Children’s Fiction : Gangsta Granny by David Walliams


Reader’s Review : After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination : a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had. Why is he going there – he wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk is not a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there? What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn’t expect to hear these words : ‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine. Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else? I enjoyed reading this book. It is a gripping thriller.

Title : The Good Father
Average Star Rating : 3
Reviews Received :
Plot :. When Peter Wright's father dies he leaves his entire fortune to Peter's best friend Jack Jackson. Over a few weeks in the summer of 1959 the consequences of the old man's legacy seriously affect three men’s lives, Jack, who has brought up his three children alone since his wife was killed, Wright's solicitor Harry, who is trying to rebuild his relationship with his estranged son Guy, and Peter himself, whose friendship with Jack is threatened by his father's death and the terrible secrets he has kept since his return from the Japanese POW camps. The Good Father explores the nature of fatherhood and the bonds between fathers and their children in a gripping story of love, betrayal and adultery.
Likes/Dislikes : Too convulated at first, too many characters and flashbacks but I found this book is a good read.

Adult Hardback Fiction : The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith

Adult Paperback Fiction : The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : India by Rick Stein

Children’s Fiction : Gangsta Granny by David Walliams

Reader’s Review : “I can’t believe it’s legal, what press can do in this country; and all for telling the truth, that’s the bloody joke”. This scathing remark against the British tabloid press perfectly sums up the core of J K Rowling’s ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’. Rowling’s novel is established firmly in the world of Gordon Brown’s Britain, with the United Kingdom’s economy on a knife’s edge and the tabloids about to come under very close scrutiny. Laura Landry, a famous model, falls to her death from her penthouse onto the hard pavement below. Was it suicide or was she pushed? Rowling catapults readers into the world of urban London and celebrity-obsessed culture. This is a novel that contains a rich set of characters in a narrative that moves seamlessly between the domestic setting, the upper echelons of the fashion world and right into the grim realities of impoverishment. Private Detective Cormoran Strike, is well crafted with a military past. I enjoyed reading the book and would recommend this book to my friends.

Title: Perfect People by Peter James
Average Star Rating: 4
Review Received:
Plot: John and Naomi Klaesson ask Dr Dettore to genetically modify the genes of their children to ensure they are free from a particular genetically passed illness.
Likes/Dislikes: An excellent read I could have read it in one sitting. At first glance may sound far fetched but when one reads about the latest genetic developments, it may not seem so far fetched. I couldn’t stop wondering how it would end. No particular dislikes, very different to other Peter James’s novels which I have read.

Adult Hardback Fiction: Inferno by Dan Brown
Adult Paperback Fiction: Oh Dear Silvia by Dawn French
Adult Hardback Non-Fiction: India by Rick Stein
Junior Fiction: Gangsta Granny by David Walliams
Reader’s Review: Life After Life by Kate Atkinson The book is tightly plotted and really kept me enraptured. But what I really admire about Kate Atkinson’s writing is the way she is able to really evoke the minute details of everyday family life between the two world wars with her usual acute attention to detail. Engaging and extraordinarily clever a remarkable read. To me Kate Atkinson's writing almost has the feel of a modern day Dickens

Dr. Benny Peiser



Fuel Poverty and the Crisis of Britain's Green Energy Policy



Benny is Director of "The Global Warming Policy Foundation"
Energy poverty is sweeping Britain. For a growing number of British families, failed energy policies have forced them to decide whether to heat their homes or buy food. Europe and the UK are facing a green energy crisis, an economic and political debacle that is entirely self-inflicted. EU members states have spent about €600 billion on renewable energy projects since 2005. These hundreds of billions are being paid by ordinary families and small and medium-sized businesses in what is undoubtedly one of the biggest wealth transfers from poor to rich in modern European history. As landowners, energy companies and green investors reap billions from renewable energy subsidies, low-income families have to foot skyrocketing electric bills while millions of households have been forced into energy poverty. Public protest against the ever rising cost of energy is forcing ministers to reconsider their support for costly policies that are hurting ordinary families. But what is really starting to cause growing alarm among the public and policy-makers is that soaring energy costs are driving manufacturing industries to move to the United States where the shale gas revolution has caused natural gas prices to collapse to about one-third of what they are in Europe, exacerbating Europe's economic crisis. Dr Benny Peiser is the director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), an all-party and non-party think tank based in London. He is the founder and editor (since 1997) of CCNet, the world's leading climate policy network. http://www.thegwpf.org/

Steel influences every aspect of our lives. Transportation, medical sciences, agriculture, energy and entertainment, are all possible because of the wonderful, versatile properties of steel. Steel as a global industry is fast growing and technologically intensive, but presents challenges in terms of environmental and economic sustainability. Some aspects of steel products and processes will be introduced and an overview of the global economics will be described in the context of developing economies and the need for sustainable materials. There are particular opportunities for Teesside to capitalise on the global demand for steel and these will also be outlined.'

Chris is the Steelmaking & Casting Research Manager for Tata Steel Research & Development. He is responsible for delivering research for the global Tata Steel Group, working in collaboration with a number of universities and steel companies worldwide. Chris’s department, in common with most of Tata Steel’s process research, is centred at Teesside Technology Centre in the UK, a world leading industrial research facility for the Iron and Steel industry.

Likes/Dislikes : Ellen is an unmarried mother at 14. Times were very different in 1950’s society. The plot flows very well. All characters are well portrayed, music, dress and attitudes of people, as it was in those time. I enjoyed reading this book and looking forward to read the sequel – Swimming 60’s.

Adult Hardback Fiction : A Delicate Truth by John le Carre

Adult Paperback Fiction : Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Bread by Paul Hollywood

Children’s Fiction : Gangsta Granny by David Walliams


Reader’s Review : A Delicate Truth opens in 2008. A counter-terrorist operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted on the British crown colony of Gibralter. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, a private defence contractor who is also his bosom friend, and a shady American CIA operative of the evangelical far-right. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister’s personal private secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it. Then the plot opens in Cornwall, UK, year 2011. A disgraced Special Forces Soldier delivers a message from the dead. Was Operation Wildlife the success it was cracked up to be – or a human tragedy that was ruthlessly covered up? Summoned by Sir Christopher (“Kit”) Probyn, retired British diplomat, and closely observed by Kit’s beautiful daughter, Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and duty to his service. This book will keep the reader totally engrossed.

Title : Perfect People by Peter James
Average Star Rating: 4
Reviews Received :
Plot :
This book revolves around the process of having children without any gene defects and have abilities beyond their parents’ dream.
Likes/Dislikes :
A real clever page-turner story which focuses not on the past but risks for the future. A wealthy professional couple, Swede John and Briton Naomi, are grieving over the death of their only son from a rare hereditary disease that is the product of a rare interaction between their gene pools. The story started off quite well but goes into the realms of designer babies. I think this book is a good ‘whodunnit’ and a suspense of belief to a reasonable ending.

Adult Hardback Fiction : The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

Adult Paperback Fiction : Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Bread by Paul Hollywood

Children’s Fiction : Gangsta Granny by David Walliams

Reader’s Review :
Jodi Picoult has tackled yet another ‘big issue’ (forgiveness) in the The Storyteller, but as in all her books things are a little more complicated than usual, and there is her ‘wow-didn’t-see-that-coming’ twist as well. Sage Singer is a loner. She works as a baker through the night, only befriending a few people, hardly ever talking to the customers, always staying behind the scenes in the store where she works. She has terrible scars on her face from a frightful accident, something she is struggling to cope with. Throughout the book I could almost smell Sage’s breads, the beautiful breads taught to her by her Jewish grandmother. Over time an unlikely friendship grows between her and an elderly customer in the store named Joseph Weber who is a retired teacher . And then, in a completely unexpected moment, Joseph asks Sage to kill him. He can’t live with the memories of what he’s done in the past as a Nazi SS Guard during war against a family member and against a race. This is not an easy book to read, simply from the subject matter, and yet Jodi Picoult’s arresting and easy style of writing means the book will keep you riveted and make you think in the end – ‘I wonder what I would have done?’`

Title : The White Queen by Philippa Gregory
Average Star Rating: 4
Reviews Received : Plot :. The book tells the story of the life of a common woman who ascends to royalty by virtue of her beauty, a woman who rises to the demands of her position and fights tenaciously for the survival of her family. The book describes Edward the IV’s life and his fight to keep the throne, his love for Elizabeth Woodville and her fight for her family and sons
. Likes/Dislikes : A good story which is all about power, kings and would be kings of England. The plot is full of twists and turns. All background figures plotting all the time against the royals.

April 2013
Adult Hardback Fiction : Until The End of Time by Danielle Steel

Adult Paperback Fiction : 11th Hour by James Patterson

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : At Home by Mary Berry & Lucy Young

Children’s Fiction : Horrid Henry’s Guide to Perfect Parents by Francesca Simon

Reader’s Review : I am a big fan of Danielle Steel, so I was very much looking forward to reading ‘Until The End of Time’. It is a beautiful story. Danielle weaves two separate love stories set nearly four decades apart together with a few vital themes and similarities – love, understanding, fate, destiny and hope. In 1975, we meet Bill, a lawyer working in New York. He decides he wants to follow his dream and become a minister. Bill’s wife Jenny has worked hard in her career to get to where she is now, but together they leave their old life behind to pursue Bill’s dreams, with the knowledge that whatever happens, they are facing it together. In the present day, Lillibet lives in a strict Amish community, but she has ambitions and dreams of one day being a writer, composing her novel by candlelight at night. Robert is a hard-working man, on the hunt for one big hit novel to publish. When Lillibet’s work falls into his hands, he discovers not only a great book, but a new person to connect with…. I absolutely loved this book. It was very romantic and at the same time so touching. The author’s words moved me and made me think, so much so that my mind was still with the characters long after I had turned the last page. This is truly a very unique, emotional, magical and special book that deserves to be read and re-read all over again.

'Ethical challenges in assisted reproduction'

Alison will summarise the clinical techniques that are routinely used to help couples who are having difficulty in conceiving; she will describe some of the research work that involves pre-implantation human development. These procedures will be placed in the context of the clinical problems that they are trying to overcome. The ethical challenges and the resulting legal and regulatory responses will be explained.

Alison is Professor of Reproductive Medicine University of Newcastle. Her research interests are focussed on improving clinical treatments for infertile couples. Indirectly, the stem cell related studies in the department are achieving this aim. Research is helping to understand the earliest stages of human development from oocyte maturation to the first few days after fertilisation. The donation of eggs, sperm and embryos to support this work is essential and compliancy with all the necessary ethical and regulatory procedures is vital. In this rapidly developing and sensitive field, involvement in the debate, both political and public, is vital to ensure public

Café Scientifique, Stockton welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds .Our aim is to provide an informal forum in a relaxed café setting to engage in the latest ideas in science and technology.
The format is for the invited speaker to give a presentation of about 30 minutes. There follows a short break to refill drinks etc, after which the audience ask questions and share ideas using roving microphones.

Dr Chris Ennis

Biochar: an ancient technology to save the world?

The application of charcoal to land can bring a wide range of environmental and social benefits. These include reducing the cost of agriculture, alleviation of water stress and reducing the man-made greenhouse effect that threatens to destabilise the global climate. Along the way there are opportunities to increase the health of low income rural communities and to generate additional income. Chris will explore these issues and approach the big question: can biochar be deployed sustainably?

Chris is a Senior Research Fellow at Teesside University. His research interests focus on biochar and biofuels production. Chris has been an active researcher in the fields of surface chemistry and atmospheric chemistry since 1997 and has worked at the Universities of York, UK and Peradeniya, Sri Lanka before coming to Teesside where he has initiated the biochar research programme.

Prof Mike Kosch

Space weather: Can our technologies survive the Sun's storms?

As a direct result of our increased reliance in satellite technology for navigation, television, telephony, and Earth imaging, we have become vulnerable to space storms that have existed since the creation of the solar system. Likewise, our increasingly distributed and inter-connected low-carbon energy supply systems have become vulnerable to geomagnetically induced currents, leading to potential network failure. Civilisation as we currently know it may be under threat. The causes and consequences will be discussed.

Mike is a professor of space science in the Physics department of Lancaster University, currently ranked number one for physics research in the UK. He is also the Dean for Research in the Faculty of Science and Technology. Mike specialises in near-Earth space environment and aurora research, mainly using high-power radars and night-vision cameras. He frequently travels to the high Arctic for experiments and has twice visited the Antarctic.

Dr Jason Gill



How can we improve the success of new cancer medicines?


Being involved in development of new cancer treatments, there is nothing worse than the feeling of uselessness when you have in-depth knowledge of the cancer process, you know there are new drugs in the pipeline which could help but are not yet approved for use, and consequently you see a relative or friend struggling to win the battle. Similarly, it is difficult for people to understand that the 'breakthrough' in treatment they heard on the radio is still a long way off because it is in development or is not approved for clinical use, particularly under the cloud of emotions and personal experience. As a member of the public I can fully appreciate this view, but in my day job I appreciate the other side of the coin. How would we feel if one of these treatments was accelerated into patients, but then caused the cancer to grow faster or spread around the body more? Alternatively, what if the drug did cure the cancer but caused the patient to develop another health issue and a deteriorated quality of life?

In his presentation, Dr Gill will discuss the cancer drug development process and how we are now in an era of 'targeted molecular therapeutics', including examples of his own research into tumour-activated therapy. He will also discuss the successes and pitfalls of these approaches.

Dr Jason Gill is a reader in molecular therapeutics within the school of medicine, pharmacy and health at Durham University

Children’s Fiction : Diary of A Wimpy Kid : Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney
Reader’s Review : Sometimes a damaged child becomes a broken man. The Broken Man is about a desperate tragedy, a life-long friend, and the long and lonely journey to find a family. Edward Carter is a bully of a man, who inspires fear in the hearts of all who meet him. Adam Carter is twelve years old, an only child with no friends and no self confidence. His father’s reign of terror over his family has Adam’s mother Peggy too scared to protect her son, so Adam’s support comes in the shape of Phil Wallis, the school bus driver. Then one afternoon, when Adam is his last drop of the day, Phil makes a life-changing decision – to accompany Adam along the darkening woodland to his house. But, in the house at the end of the track a terrible tragedy is unfolding, and it is one that will bind them together forever

February 2013
Adult Hardback Fiction : A Memory of Light by Robert Jordon & Brandon Sanderson

Adult Paperback Fiction : Kill Me If You Can by James Patterson & Marshall Karp

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals by Jamie Oliver

Children’s Fiction : Diary of A Wimpy Kid : The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney


Reader’s Review : A Memory of Light is a brutal, bruising, 900 page war novel that kicks off with all hell breaking loose and doesn’t pause for breath until the ending. The prologue starts with a well-paced sequence as we find out the state of play for the major characters, intercut with Talmanes and the Band of Red Hand engaging hordes of Shadowspawn on the streets of Caemlyn. Immediately after this, we alternate between Rand’s attempts to pull together a coalition against the Shadow whilst a small group of Asha’man try to save their organisation from destruction. The big questions are answered, the final scene is fitting and the story ends in a way that is true to itself. This book is incredibly fitting end to Robert Jordan’s sprawling, immersive and of aggravating Wheel of Time Saga. It’s both epic and weirdly perfunctory. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Title : Ellis Island by Kate Kerrigan
Average Star Rating: 3
Reviews Received :
Plot :.The base of this book revolves around Ellie Hogan’s life when she goes to America to help pay for her husband’s hospital bills, her life in America and the people she works for and the friends she makes there.
Likes/Dislikes : Rural Irish girl Ellie loves living in New York, working as a lady’s maid for a wealthy socialite. She tries to persuade her husband, John, to join her but is is embroiled in his affairs in Ireland, and caught up in civil war. Nevertheless Ellie is extremely happy and fully embraces her sophisticated new life. The disparity between Ireland in the 1920’s and the vigorous and exciting life in New York in that era and Ellie’s love for two men and two countries makes it a very good read.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Standing in Another Man’s Grave by Ian Rankin

Adult Paperback Fiction : Reflected in You by Silvia Day,

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals by Jamie Oliver

Children’s Fiction : Diary of A Wimpy Kid : The Third Wheel by Jeff Kinney

Reader’s Review : The brand-new crime novel from number-one bestselling author Ian Rankin. It’s twenty-five years since John Rebus appeared on the scene, and five years since he retired. But 2012 sees his return in STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN’S GRAVE. Not only is Rebus as stubborn and anarchic as ever, but he finds himself in trouble with Rankin’s latest creation, Malcolm Fox of Edinburgh’s internal affairs unit. Added to which, Rebus may be about to derail the career of his ex-colleague Siobhan Clarke, while himself being permanently derailed by mob boss and old adversary Big Ger Cafferty. But all Rebus wants to do is discover the truth about a series of seemingly unconnected disappearances stretching back to the millennium. The problem being, no one else wants to go there – and that includes Rebus’s fellow officers. Not that any of that is going to stop Rebus. Not even when his own life and the careers of those around him are on the line.

Thoughts and Happenings of Wilfred Price Purveyor of Superior Funerals by Wendy Jones
Average Star Rating: 2
Reviews Received :
Plot :.Wilfred, a confused and naïve young man, unwittingly proposes to Grace, who was just a damaged and emotionally neglected person, but had difficulty withdrawing the proposal and has to marry her. When he falls in love with someone else does he discover that she was pregnant with her brother’s baby.
Likes/Dislikes : The title was quirky and caught my imagination and I was looking forward to reading it. It was a short, charming read but I felt it lacked depth and the main characters remained sparse in their characterisation and weren’t very developed. It could have been written in a few pages. This book is what I call a good beach read – undemanding but interesting enough to keep you reading.

Adult Hardback Fiction : The Casual Vacancy by J K Rowling

Adult Paperback Fiction : Reflected In You by Silvia Day

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals by Jamie Oliver

Children’s Fiction : Ratburger by David Walliams

Reader’s Review : The Casual Vacancy is J K Rowlings’s first novel for adults. When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils. Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has ever seen before. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations? It is most impressive that J K Rowling, flush with success, did not take the easy option and write another Harry Potter story with guaranteed sales and film rights. It’s a well-written, powerful book.

Adult Hardback Fiction : A Wanted Man by Lee Child
Adult Paperback Fiction : Fifty Shades Freed by E L James
Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Fast, Fresh and Easy Food by Lorraine Pascale

Children’s Fiction : Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Reader’s Review : I have read most of the Jack Reacher series and as always ‘A Wanted Man’ is another excellent story about Jack Reacher and his solo exploits to right the USA of all its problems. The man has no conscience but makes for a good read. This book is a real fast paced action book which I found very hard to put down and for a change, didn't have the hero in ‘vividly described action scenes’ with the main female character. Though I enjoyed the book but felt that as the story started to wind up, it was almost as though the author had lost interest in it and just wanted to get it over with. Anyone reading this book as their first Jack Reacher book would find little to complain about but somehow or other it is a little "thin" by comparison with some of the other excellent books in the series. But I would recommend it to anyone.

Plot : At a suburban barbecue party in Australia, a man named Hector, slaps Hugo, an unruly three-year old boy who is not his son. It’s a single act of violence, but the slap reverberates through the lives of everyone who witnesses it. The impact of this incident has raised different views from the witnesses and these opinions are described by the author in this book.

Likes/Dislikes
Too many characters, too many bad language and too much sex. I am not sure if it was suppose to reflect the society today in Australia.The story could have been told without any of these faults and at times it felt hard going.

Adult Hardback Fiction : The Traitor Queen by Trudi Canavan

Adult Paperback Fiction : Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : My Story by Tom Daley

Children’s Fiction : Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Reader’s Review : Trudi Canavan's writing is a lot like driving a real fast Skoda. You shouldn't enjoy it, you really don't want anyone else to see you near it, and it can be a complete blast. The Traitor series has been somewhat below par, after the incredibly slow first book and an unsatisfying second I had high hopes she'd bring it all together in the third. Sadly this wasn't quite the case, and when all is said and done the series is a somewhat unworthy instalment in the Guild Magician books.

Trudi telegraphs her plot lines so early its literally comical, her characters make bizarre decisions about how they interact with the world, no-one does anything remotely unsucessful and the world is full of very soft edges (even the "torture" scenes in this book is about as scary as pink unicorns) - her saving grace is the speed and pace of her plots, and a good story concept and normally that's enough - in this case it simply isn't.

Adult Hardback Fiction : The Long Earth by Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter
Adult Paperback Fiction : Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James
Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Gok Cooks Chinese by Gok Wan
Children’s Fiction : Shelter by Harlan Coben
Reader’s Review : The Long Earth is set a few years in the future. Inventor, Willis Linsay has created "a stepper", an incredible device that allows the user to 'step' from one earth to another. As people discover this alternates earth, our world, concepts and perceptions change forever. A huge philosophical and practical debate ensues - how many earths are there? What will we find on the other earths?
Pratchett and Baxter's protagonist is Joshua, a natural stepper, who can move from world to world without the aid of the device. Along with Lobsang, his Artificially Intelligent companion, they travel the Long Earths on an endless voyage of discovery. There's a great deal to admire in The Long Earth. Pratchett & Baxter introduce new civilisations, diverse and interesting groups of travellers, supporting characters and new and unusual life on the new Earths. Even if you're not a fan of science fiction or fantasy novels, I thoroughly recommend The Long Earth. It's a book that will keep readers engaged and entertained

Fracking Technology - Critical Shale Gas Risks: Geology and Public Opinion?

Like GM crops public opinion could kill shale gas in the UK and beyond. The now polarised debate has largely ignored 20 years of shale gas data from the USA. We analyse thousands of hydraulic fracturing operations and also review the history of anthropogenic stimulation of earthquakes to help inform regulators, NGOs, publics, engineers and geoscientists on shale gas risk and appropriate safeguards

Richard Davies is Professor of Energy at Durham University and Director of Durham Energy Institute. Richard Davies spent 7 years in the petroleum industry in Aberdeen, London and Houston with ExxonMobil working on development and exploration projects. Richard Davies' main role at Durham University has been in building cross-department and cross faculty research in energy. This started in the field of geo-energy (e.g. fossil fuels, carbon capture and storage) and more recently has been across a spectrum of energy research, with the development of Durham Energy Institute (DEI). In 2007 to 2011 he led an international team to establish the trigger for the earth's most destructive well blowout in Indonesia. Now he leads a geoscience team researching the geological risks associated with shale gas exploration and development.

TheBioinspired Engineering - Learning from Nature to develop the materials and products of the future


The challenge of developing the next generation of engineered materials and products - with higher performance but reduced environmental impact - is bringing about a change in approach by which we design and manufacture them. Increasingly, scientist and engineers are looking to bring about step change improvements by drawing on nature, as a design template or mimicking the processes of organic growth to design new manufacturing approaches.

In his presentation Professor Hodgson will discuss the current and potential future development of this approach, including examples of his own research - for example the use of microorganisms to "grow" electronic circuits, the development of new materials for the aerospace sector and the development of solar cells which borrow from the principles of photosynthesis.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel

Adult Paperback Fiction : Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Sweet Revenge by Tom Bower

Children’s Fiction : Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins Reader’s Review : 'His children are falling from the sky,' is the arresting opening sentence of the second novel in Mantel's trilogy, exploring the life of Thomas Cromwell at the court of Henry VIII. Hawks at the king's hunting party in Wiltshire have been named after Cromwell's dead daughters, an odd memorial, but one that immediately reminds us of Cromwell's loss of those dear to him, and the cut-throat world in which he is now a key player. 'When they look down they see nothing but their prey, and the borrowed plumes of the hunters; they see a flittering, flinching universe, a universe filled with their dinner.' As has been observed by others, Mantel is writing at the height of her powers and her language is full of delights. She doesn't burden us with her research, which effortlessly provides the structure to her novel - it is her sensory description which allows us to think we know what it is to inhabit the world of Henry Tudor. She conjures up - with even more skill perhaps - the workings of Cromwell's mind and the political machinations required to serve his king and to remove and execute a queen, according to the law of England. Cromwell has read Machiavelli and clearly thinks he could write better if he had the time - but there are always papers, always business to be attended to if the kingdom is to prosper. Mantel has a mischievous way of inserting lines into her narrative that seem to come from Elizabethan plays not yet written - just one more enjoyable part of this rich and exciting novel.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Bring Up The Bodies by Hilary Mantel

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Sweet Revenge by Tom Bower
Children’s Fiction : Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Reader’s Review : Jack Morgan is back, he has his own Private Detective Agency. Jack has just come back from being away and heads straight home from the airport, takes a shower and gets straight into bed to find a dead body in his bed. He knows he has been set up and has to prove to the police he did not do the killing and find the person who did. You follow this story but you also get a couple more cases thrown in and it helps the book move very quickly. You have a young movie star who is in a bit of trouble, a transit van is ambushed and the drivers are killed so Private Detective Agency also has this on their books to solve. Then there is a spree of hotel murders and the lady who owns the chain of hotels is not getting anywhere with the police and she is losing business and goes to Private and ask them to help her. All the stories work really well together. Another great James Patterson and can not wait for the next one. I love James Patterson’s books, these are thrilling and so easy to read, you get to know the hero almost personally, always become part of the story. I would recommend this book to anyone, it’s fantastic.

Likes/Dislikes
Although this book was difficult to read at times as it is so emotional, I really enjoyed the story. The relationship between Grace and Jenny is especially interesting as the book covers a time when Jenny is becoming more independent and Grace has to accept her daughter as a grown-up person who can cope with a very stressful situation as well as can be expected.

Silver River by Daisy Goodwin
Average Star Rating : 3
Reviews Received : Plot : The book followed Daisy and her immediate family. This is essentially an account of Daisy’s difficult childhood – her mother’s abandonment when Daisy was just five years old had a traumatic effect which permeated her life as an adult and as a mother. It left her with so many questions and so begins her journey of discovery which takes her to remote areas of Argentina as she explores her mother’s extraordinary family history.
Likes/Dislikes Overall I enjoyed this book but felt a bit bogged down with the family history in Argentina. However, it did help her to understand her own and her mother’s behaviour which she found quite difficult as a child.

Adult Hardback Fiction : 11th Hour by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
Adult Paperback Fiction : 44 Charles Street by Danielle Steel
Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Recipes from My Mother for My Daughter by Lisa Faulkner
Children’s Fiction : The Clever Little Kitten by Holly Webb
Reader’s Review :. I love all the Women's Murder Club books and 11th Hour is another thrilling addition to the series. What a start! Wealthy Chaz Smith murdered, linked to a criminal fraternity. The weapon has it’s mysteries. His own family are not safe. Lindsay Boxer is perplexed as she arrives with partner Rich Conklin. Lindsay is pregnant but not shy of continuing her detective work and marriage to ex-FBI Joe. Emotional and professional conflicts do not interfere. Her longstanding colleagues are involved again, Claire the pathologist, Cindy the news reporter and Yuki the attorney.They all add to the familiarity, continuity and the spice. I found it so enjoyable and fast that I finished it in a few hours. The formula as always does remain the same and an avid James Patterson reader could work out the killer with some ease but I never find that this takes anything away from the enjoyment of his books. My only criticism (and I won’t provide any spoilers here) is the way a character gives a full confession when evidence alone might not have convicted them. It seems too neat to tie things up with a suspect giving up everything when they have gone for years without detection. But James Patterson also always manages to get the perfect balance between the crime story and the personal lives of the characters something that other crime writers get frequently wrong. Overall this is a brilliant book and a very worthy read and I hope James Patterson keeps churning books out like this one.

The Kaiser’s Last Kiss by Alan Judd
Average Star Rating : 3
Reviews Received :
Plot : Focusing on a few days during WWII, this is the tale of the last days in the life of the exiled Kaiser as his Dutch home is taken over by a group of invading Nazis who haven’t yet decided if he’s more valuable to them dead or alive.
Likes/Dislikes
I found the book very boring and uninteresting. Didn’t like or care about any of the characters because there was not enough details given about them. The main character was pompous and I didn’t really care what happened to him. The highlight of the book was the visit of Himmler, where nothing particular happened and the ending was abrupt and unsatisfying. This book didn’t even give enough accurate information about the war and it’s impact on history.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Three Letters by Josephine Cox

Adult Paperback Fiction : Before I Go to Sleep by S J Watson

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Bradshaw’s Handbook by George Bradshaw

Children’s Fiction : War Horse (Tie-In) by Michael Morpurgo

Reader’s Review : This review is from the brand new dramatic novel from the best-selling author Josephine Cox. Eight-year-old Casey's mother Ruth is a cruel woman, with an appetite for other women's husbands. His father is quiet and hard-working and, though Tom Denton has long suspected his wife of having sordid affairs, he has chosen to turn a blind eye to keep the peace. But then, quite unexpectedly, Tom receives two bits of devastating news, and his world is cruelly shattered. It is then he realises things will have to change. Tom decides to fight for his son, determined to keep him safe and to raise him to be the best he can be. But life is cruel when fate takes a hand, and Casey fears that his father's prophetic words are coming true! 'It's done. The dice is thrown, and nobody wins.' But there are three letters that may just change his destiny forever.

This is a rather disappointing addition to Josephine Cox’s written works. A sob story that has little scope for plausibility but hangs on to the narrative. Lots of padding and repetition that could do with pruning. How many times does Tom love Casey and vice versa and Grandad and contempt of mother Ruth? The tale unfolds with coincidental content that just keeps the interest to the end. I have read excellent novels by Josephine Cox and appreciate her talents. Could do better.

Adult Hardback Fiction : The Faithless by Martina Cole
Adult Paperback Fiction : Tick Tock by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge
Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Jamie’s Great Britain by Jamie Oliver
Children’s Fiction : Diary of A Wimpy Kid : Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney

Reader’s Review : This review is from James Patterson’s ‘TICK TOCK’ in paperback. This is the 4th book in the Michael Bennett series and as with most of James Patterson's novels it grips you from the start. You feel you actually know the characters. Michael Bennett has a lot going for him - he is a New York City detective who balances being a widower with a large family (including a number of adopted children) and an eclectic cast of family, friends and colleagues that make his experiences even more engaging. For that reason, I was really keen to read the latest book that featured Michael Bennett - Tick Tock. In this book, Michael Bennett is trying to deal with a number of issues on the home front and in the workplace. Michael and his diverse family (including all of his children, his grandfather and the children's nanny) are trying to enjoy a holiday at the shore but find themselves being targeted by neighbourhood bullies who are well-known, and well-connected, in the neighbourhood. Michael also finds himself being dragged back to work as he tries to deal with a very complicated and well-organized killer who is making the city's citizens cower in fear. How can Michael find the balance in dealing with the problems facing his children and how will he track down this crazed and crafty serial killer? If that was not enough, Michael finds himself torn between two beautiful women - Mary Catherine, the children's nanny, and Emily Parker, an FBI agent that Michael has found himself attracted to in the past. All of these elements weave together in a well-crafted and complex novel.

Plot : There is a fire and they are in there. They are in there …. Black smoke stains a summer blue sky. A school is on fire. And one mother, Grace, sees the smoke and runs. She knows her teenage daughter Jenny is inside. She runs into the burning building to rescue her. Afterwards, Grace must find the identity of the arsonist and protect her family from the person who’s still intent on destroying them. Afterwards, she must fight the limits of her physical strength and discover the limitlessness of love.
Likes/DislikesThis book has become one of the most moving and beautiful books I have ever read. Despite the inevitability of the ending, the twists and turns of the plot made this an exciting read. The journey Lupton takes us on, is heartbreaking and so real. I sobbed at the end and have thought about it for days afterwards. This book will stay with you for a long time after you have finished it.

Professor Jo Phoenix?


Is Criminology a Science ?


Criminology is a relatively new discipline and one that has made a significant impact on the media where forensic science has replaced the deductive reasoning of the private investigator or police detective. The media image of criminology, however, has little to do with the realities of what criminology is. This talk provides a sideways, at times humorous, look at relationship between science and social science as it attempts to answer some of the big questions about crime, justice and punishment, such as what makes people criminal? Does prison work? Why do men commit more crime than women?

Prof Jo Phoenix is Dean of Queen’s Campus, Durham University, Stockton-on Tees. She holds a Chair in Criminology in the School of Applied Social Sciences. Jo's research is led by a deep concern to understand the experiences of vulnerable and marginalised groups of people and how social policy and criminal justice often seems to do little to alleviate their suffering.

Café Scientifique, Stockton welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds .Our aim is to provide an informal forum in a relaxed café setting to engage in the latest ideas in science and technology.
The format is for the invited speaker to give a presentation of about 30 minutes. There follows a short break to refill drinks etc , after which the audience ask questions and share ideas using roving microphones.
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of every month except December and August.

"Is it possible to produce sufficient meat to satisfy world demand or should environmental considerations stop us eating meat altogether?"

To satisfy the increasing global demand for meat and dairy produce, livestock production is rapidly expanding. All agriculture, but more-so livestock production, damages the environment so perhaps we should be avoiding meat. Livestock often provides the only income for many of the billion poorest people and it also a great waste disposal industry utilising all the by-products from human food manufacture and utilises marginal land converting inedible grasses into edible meat, leather, wool etc. Should we eat meat? How much meat and animal products do we need? Is the answer more efficient large-scale production? What sort of livestock production do you want? How would you advise the policy makers?

Reader’s Review : The Faithless is a great return to form. It gripped me from the brutal opening chapter right through to the very end. The book is totally addictive, full of twists and turns that will stay with you for days after. I couldn’t put the book down, reading well into the early hours. As ever, I hate to give away any of the story and would hate to spoil it for other readers, so my review is totally on my personal opinion. I highly recommend this book. It is the one of her best. Martina just gets better and better. I can’t wait for her next book. Look out – Martina is back.

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Guinness World Records 2012

Children’s Fiction : The Highway Rats by Julia Donaldson


Reader’s Review: This Review is from the latest Lee Child book - ‘The Affair’ . It’s from Jack Reacher 16 Series..As an avid fan of the Reacher books, I had this on pre-order. Living in Italy I had to wait just a tad longer for delivery but was not disappointed. It took me just over 2 days to finish the book - would have been a single sitting but I did have other things to do! This gave us great background to why the Reacher we have come to know left the army, something hinted at in the rest of the series but never really explained.

Unlike other reviewers, I felt that the relationship with his latest conquest (don’t want to spoil it for others) was well handled - I often find love scenes too graphic but this was sensitively done and showed a more tender side of Reacher. Overall, an excellent read - but still cant see how a 5ft 5 inch pretty boy munchkin can possibly play him!!

The story has a good mix of characters and for those who like a good tale this is one to read. If you are new to reading Lee Childs don't just sit there - get ordering. You will not be disappointed

Plot : This is a story of deception during World War II. The story is about a host of Intelligence workers in England, Spain and Germany. Found the first few chapters a bit difficult going – as if I am reading a non-fiction. However, after persevering, I quite enjoyed the way the story shaped up.
Likes/Dislikes
Though this story is a bit long winded, I would recommend the book to my friends.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Good as Dead by Mark Billingham

Adult Paperback Fiction : One Day by David Nicholls

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Guinness World Records 2012

Children’s Fiction : The Highway Rat by Julia Donaldson

Reader’s Review : At the start Good As Dead seems like it's setting up a fairly standard situation, when the Indian owner of a corner shop, seemingly fed-up with the daily hassle and abuse he has to put up with from young kids, cracks and barricades himself into the shop, holding a couple of hostages at gunpoint. One of the people being held is police officer Helen Weeks, and it's no coincidence either. The man, Mr Akhtar, is actually upset about the death of his son Amin, who recently died in a prison cell. Akhtar doesn't believe the official verdict of suicide and he's going to hold the siege for as long as it takes for DI Thorne, who was involved in the original case, to find out the truth behind his boy's death. Time is of the essence and, looking into the matter, Thorne - with help from his regular team of officers - indeed finds that something isn't quite right about the case. Not only is it difficult however to find any evidence for what he believes to be the reality of the situation, but he isn't sure that the boy's father will be at all appeased by what he finds out. Good As Dead has two things going for it that help it rise above just being an average crime procedural. On the one hand, you have a character like Thorne, who reacts like most people would in relation to what happens here and occasionally has moments when he would like to take the law into his own hands, but he knows, on balance, just how far to push this. Secondly, Billingham orchestrates events brilliantly, even in a regular investigation and a siege situation, bringing the resolution around to an immensely satisfying conclusion. You really can't ask for more than that.

Plot : Lisbeth Salander is wanted for three murders and because of her wizardry with computer hacking she is always one step ahead of everybody else.
Likes/Dislikes
It was essential to have read “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” to learn Lisbeth’s background and her involvement with Blomkvist, the magazine publisher. You have to really concentrate to keep all characters in place. It’s a good thriller – well constructed, but perhaps too wordy and over-written. One gets lost with so many characters and names. It’s hard to keep a running checklist.

"Ores that won't cost the Earth: Chemical solutions to sustainable metal production"

Mankind's consumption of copper in electrical wires, neodymium in magnets, americium in smoke alarms, and platinum in catalytic converters means that metals are becoming increasingly expensive. Other metals are simply dangerous, such as those found in spent nuclear fuel or at sites of a nuclear accident. Also, geopolitical decisions can result in countries becoming the sole source of metal values as has occurred with China and the rare earth metals. As such, the sustainable production of metals and their recycling is becoming increasingly important to the technological world we inhabit.

This discussion will highlight the use of chemistry in the extraction of metals from their ores. In particular, the state-of-the-art in chemical reagents for solvent extraction processes will be discussed and demonstrated

Prof David Howard

Tingle and tuning in singing

There are a number of aspects of the singing voice that contribute to listener perception of both overall musicality as well as the emotion of the underlying message. Two aspects have been the subject of recent research: (1) the tingle factor and (2) tuning in unaccompanied singing. During this Cafe David Howard will describe these two effects to stimulate discussion and thinking from the audience. The talk will be non-mathematical and open to anyone interested in singing and human voice production.

David Howard gained a Personal Chair in Music Technology in 1996 in the Department of Electronics at the University of York where he became Head of Department (for the second time around!). His research interests include the singing and speaking voice in terms of their acoustic outputs. He was presenter and co-presenter for the BBC4 TV programs "Voice" and "Castrato" respectively. David Conducts the Vale of York Voice who sing evensong in York Minster once a month and he is the organist at St. Luke's in York.

September 2011
Adult Hardback Fiction : Now You See Her by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge

Adult Paperback Fiction : Worth Dying For by Lee Child

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Rick Stein’s Spain by Rick Stein

Children’s Fiction : People’s Republic by Robert Muchamore

Reader’s Review : First I have to explain that I am a HUGE Patterson fan, but also a HUGE Patterson critic when it comes to his co-written books. The book starts in the current day with Nina Bloom in New York with her daughter. After the first introductions are made, we are transported back to the early days in Nina's life when she met her husband Peter. The book starts off with a bang and the disastrous events that start Nina's life spiralling. Following the shocking events you can literally feel every emotion of this woman rolling off the page. As Nina's journey is made you feel the tension and fear build up in her life and then we are catapulted into her journey to try to save both herself and her daughter. There are other more minor characters making appearances but the whole crux of the story centres around Nina and her husband Peter.

The book was everything you would expect, fast, edgy and full of suspense. The perfect book in every way and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was one of those books that made me think it would make a great film! Highly recommended!

Adult Hardback Fiction : A Dance with Dragons by George R R Martin

Adult Paperback Fiction : Spider Bones by Kathy Reichs

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Mud, Sweat and Tears by Bear Grylls

Children’s Fiction : Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Reader’s Review :
Just finished reading "A Dance with Dragons", and absolutely loved it. Fortunately for me, I am one of the people that only came across this series recently when the show came out, so after reading the other books in the collection I had a very short wait for this one. After reading the cliff hanger at the end of this book, hope the next book won't take too long to come out.
Overall the pace seems faster, George Martin keeps with his sheer scale in writing. As a fan who only started reading due to the TV series, I have had the pleasure of only waiting for this book, but it was worth it.

Data, theory and tacit skills: Getting a feel for the scientific method


From Mr Data in Star Trek to those who attack science by saying "it's only a theory", we have many pictures in contemporary culture of how science is done and what is achieves. However, using examples from the history of physics and astronomy, David Wilkinson will argue for the robustness and creativity of the scientific method in giving us provisional yet reliable insights into the nature of the Universe.

Tomorrow's doctors: what can patients expect?


The role of doctors is constantly evolving. What will tomorrow's doctors be like and could personal care disappear? In the UK the pace of change is hugely dictated by the systems of the NHS. Is our traditional vision of the doctor as a caring, personal physician outdated and will people need to retrain themselves in the way they seek health care? Traditional relationships between patients and doctors are already under stress - in a rapidly changing world with a greater reliance on technology it is reasonable to ask what future role medical professionals will have or even whether the NHS will have the capacity to offer personalised care and whether it will be better in the future.


Professor Pali Hungin is the Dean of Medicine and the Head of the School of Medicine and Health at Durham University. A medical doctor, he is also Professor of Primary Care and General Practice and the Director of the Centre for Integrated Healthcare Research within the School.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Live Wire by Harlan Coben
Adult Paperback Fiction : The Family by Martina Cole
Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Madeleine – Kate & Gerry McCann
Children’s Fiction : Theodore Boone by John Grisham
Reader’s Review :
"Live Wire" by Harlen Coben.
While some reviewers in U.S.A. have been upset by the apparent future direction of this series, in my opinion Live Wire -- the 10th book in the Myron Bolitar series, is Coben's best yet. Why? Simple, in typical Coben fashion, it is a non-stop page turner, filled with many of the characters that have made them long-time fan favourites (including new information about/insights into Myron, his parents and Win), introduces/re-introduces several new, interesting and well-developed characters, and it is loaded with twists and turns and surprises. It is also much more introspective than the other Bolitar books. Some reviewers consider it to be too self-indulgent and have penalised the book in their rating of it. I very much disagree. While it is introspective, it added considerably to my appreciation and understanding of how a more mature Myron has evolved. I highly recommend Coben's Live Wire.

I really enjoyed this book. The plot was paced well. To see that the police had a lot of luck in solving the crime is an understatement.

Adult Hardback Fiction : Those In Peril by Wilbur Smith
Adult Paperback Fiction : 9th Judgement by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Jamie’s 30-minute Meals by Jamie Oliver
Children’s Fiction : Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz
Reader’s Review :
Hazel Bannock is the heir to the Bannock Oil Corp, one of the major oil producers with global reach. While cruising in the Indian Ocean, Hazel's private yacht is hijacked by African pirates. Hazel is not on board at the time, but her daughter, Cayla, is kidnapped and held to ransom. The pirates demand a crippling twenty billion dollar ransom for her release. Complicated political and diplomatic considerations render the civilized major powers incapable of intervening. When Hazel is given evidence of the horrific torture which Cayla is being subjected to, she calls on Hector Cross to help her rescue her daughter. Hector is the owner and operator of Cross Bow Security, the company which is contracted to Bannock Oil to provide all their security. This is really an amazing book as expected from the master! He certainly has not lost his touch. He makes all his heroes and the bad guys come alive on pages. The book reflects on real problem of piracy from the African war lords. Great ripping yarn.

Adult Hardback Fiction :Daughters in Law by Joanna Trollope

Adult Paperback Fiction : Solar by Ian McEwan

Adult Hardback Non-Fiction : Jamie’s 30-minute Meals by Jamie Oliver

Children’s Fiction : Spy Dog’s Got Talent/The Great Pet-shop Panic by Andrew Cope

Reader’s Review :
Daughters-in-Law by Joanna Trollope should intuitively reach out and appeal to a hefty chunk of the novel buying demographic. Settling cosily into this latest family album I realised that she could be writing about me. I began to recognise the whole scenario with a chilling presentiment. What a rich lode she has struck, writing instructively for her contemporaries, women who have had inevitably to yield authority over their closely reared sons; changing their tactics in order to fulfil secretly held family based ambitions; while busily trying to develop new wiles and strategies. At first it seems the whole book will be about Rachel but no, this story fans out to her growing and extended family; uncovering hidden dynamics and ambitions, the steely inner strength of her collective Daughters-in-Law and the quiet good sense of her ornithological artist husband Anthony. So each generation of women readers will find something to touch and recognise in the lively Brinkley family who we get to know so quickly.

Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute

Reviews Received:
Plot: The book is based on the Japanese invasion of Malaya, the trials and tribulations of a group of unwanted European women. Jean Paget is taken as a prisoner in Malaya among a group of other women, when the war breaks out. During that time she meets Joe Harman, who she subsequently thinks, has been killed. After her return to England she is told of her inheritance and returns to Malaya and finds out that Joe Harman survived the war. Likes/Dislikes Overall I really enjoyed this book, although I did feel the second half of the story a bit predictable. The characters were well written and typical of those days.

Rethinking how we do sleep: the view from evolutionary medicine

In the recent historical past something interesting has happened to how we think about and do sleep. In the quest for 'a good night' we sleep in private sanctuaries, alone or in pairs, on special surfaces, in total darkness and silence. But this is not how sleep evolved, nor how most humans or other mammals sleep. Evolutionary medicine suggests that many 21st century 'sleep problems' result from a mismatch between our cultural expectations and our evolved biology. Do we need to redefine what we expect from 'a good night's sleep'?

Dr. John McCue

What We Still Don't Know About the Universe

Dark Matter: 25% of everything in the universe is made up of mysterious stuff that we can only detect because of its gravitational pull on stars and galaxies. Is Dark Matter WIMPish or MACHO? Or something else?

Dark Energy: 70% of what is out there is even more curious and we only know it's there because of its antigravitational effect that is pushing the universe apart. That leaves only 5% of the universe that is known to us or can detect in some way. So the fact that 95% of the universe is unknown to us is staggering in anyone's imagination. Do we really think we can ever understand the cosmos?

Alien life: it is a growing mystery that we cannot detect any communications from other civilisations and many astronomers are now beginning to think we are alone in space. Arthur C. Clarke once said "There are two possibilities: we are alone or we are not. Either way, the consequences are staggering".

John McCue is a keen amateur astronomer and was the first Director of the Wynyard Observatory. Before that John taught A level Maths at Stockton Sixth Form College and continues to teach Maths and Astronomy part-time.

Nanotechnology - Everything That You Ever Wanted To Know But Were Too Afraid To Ask.

Nanotechnologies are likely to have a huge impact on our lives: not just because of the new products they may help create or even the potential risks which may arise, but because of their new potential life-changing impact on our health, environment, societies and perhaps our understanding of life itself. There is a need to ensure nanotechnologies are used safely and effectively in food and indeed all other consumer products. There is also a need to remove the confusion about nanotechnology that exists in the minds of the general public. The subject of nanotechnology is already big and growing fast so the discussion can only scratch the surface but hopefully scratch it, it will.

Stephen has over 25 years experience with ICI plc holding a full range of commercial positions. Establishing the world’s first commercial route to single-walled carbon nanotube manufacture during his 11 years at Thomas Swann & Co. They are now the premier manufacturer worldwide. He has a proven ability to create commercial value from new technology and set up Screen Technology Ltd. based on PLLCD technology, which is now floated on AIM as Screen Technology Plc. Stephen is also non-executive Director on 4 high-tech start up companies and sits on the advisory board of the Materials Science Department of Cambridge University and on a number of Industrial/Academic projects in materials science.

People in the past: the benefits & challenges of excavating and studying human remains from archaeological sites

What can the remains of past people(their skeletons) tell us about the past? Can this be related to our heritage, the present & the future? Can we balance the benefits obtained from their excavation, analysis and curation of human remains with ethical concerns?

Professor Roberts of Durham University classes herself as a bioarchaeologist. Her initial training was as a SRN. She has studied human remains from archaeological sites for 27 years and is specifically interested in understanding health problems in the past. This requires a holistic understanding of patterns of health & disease in today's world.

Universal screening for autism during infancy - possibilities and pitfalls

Our understanding of the developing brain has advanced substantially over the past 15 years. This knowledge is on the verge of providing us with the basis for detecting autism during early infancy. Current practice is to evaluate children for autism at around 24 months of age via labour intensive behavioural tests. But what are the potential benefits and drawbacks of early screening? How could it be implemented and would it ultimately be desirable?

Dr. Vincent Reid. Prior to arriving at Durham in 2006 he has worked at universities and institutes in Germany, London and New Zealand. His research background focuses on the developing brain and how infants understand other people, an area known as early social cognition.

'Choice, Chance and Circumstance - Why Do We Behave The Way We Do?'

Why do we find it difficult to change our behaviour? What is the evidence and why is there so little of it in important areas e.g. sexual health, obesity etc? Why do we also see such stark differences and inequalities in behaviours between affluent and deprived populations? The discussion will explore the complexities around influencing individual behaviour change at a political, population and individual level. The government's response to this appears to have reduced the whole argument down to choice and empowerment. Two important factors but not the whole picture. What about the influence of media, culture, environments, genetics and neurological development etc? A few pertinent and local examples around alcohol, smoking and sexual health.

Obesity, pinch points or love handles

Obesity - it's always in the news. We are told that people in the UK are getting fatter by the day, particularly our children. And fatness seems to be a risk factor for just about everything bad. All miserable news, set against the fact that most people love food, particularly foods like cakes and chocolate and crisps and cheese. So, what can we reasonable do at a public health level that could tackle the problem? Well, we can take some comfort from the fact that a few countries in Europe seem to be cracking the problem, but it takes a lot of effort from Government, industry, the health service, and individuals. What are we doing about it in the UK, and particularly in Stockton and Middlesbrough? I think you might be surprised at the level of effort that is currently in place, and impressed at the way in which many people from different agencies are working together to tackle the problem.

Carolyn Summerbell is Professor in the School of Medicine & Health and Principal of John Snow College, having previously headed the University of Teesside's Centre for Food, Physical Activity and Obesity. In additoion to co-authoring over 80 research papers, she regularly gives key note addresses at international conferences. She is on the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Obesity, Honorary Secretary of the Nutrition Society, and Chair of the Association for the Study of Obesity. She is a regular advisor to the World Health Organisation and is currently leading the designation of heir new Collaborating Centre for Nutrition.

The Cell Nucleus, the Ultimate Self-Assembling Machine


Professor Chris Hutchison will introduce us to the remarkable self-assembly systems in animal cells. The cell nucleus disassembles every time the cell divides and therefore must be reassembled at the end of cell division. This process occurs in less than five minutes and the structure is one of the most complex in nature. Understanding this process may allow the design of self-healing materials that could have a wide range of applications.

Until becoming Principal of the College of St Hild and St Bede, Chris was the Head of School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Durham University. After receiving his PhD at the Institute of Neurology, studying Duchene Muscular Dystrophy, he was a post doctoral fellow at Sussex, sponsored by the Cancer Research Campaign, Chair and lecturer at the School of Life Sciences, Dundee, and joined Durham 1999

Vaccine – Successes, Failures & Future Prospects

Dr Paul Yeo


Vaccines are some of the most potent agents we have in the fight against infectious diseases. By preventing infection, or rather, preventing the diseases caused by infectious agents, the health of the nation and indeed the world has greatly improved. We explore what makes a vaccine protective, what the successes are (and the failure) and where the future lies

Paul is a senior lecturer at Durham University’s Centre for Bioactive Chemistry where chemistry led approaches answer novel biological questions about how a virus assembles in the cell. Paul’s research focuses on molecular virology, particularly the study of viruses and how they interact with the cells that they infect and use for their own replication. With PhD working on measles viruses at Queen’s University, Belfast, he moved to Reading to look at HIV1; and worked in the Medical Research Council’s Virology Unit in the Institute of Virology before coming to Durham.

Sanitation – the last taboo

Rose George

Also supporting WaterAid


Four in ten people in the world have no toilet; they do their business on roadsides, in the bushes, wherever they can. A child dies from diarrhoea, usually brought on by faecal-contaminated food or water, every 15 seconds. Meanwhile, we luxuriate with the thoughtless flush. Human ‘waste’ is full of nutrients, a rich, valuable, inexhaustible material. Rose will lead us on an exploration of a hidden world and one of the world’s biggest unsolved public health crises.

Rose is a freelance journalist who travels extensively, writing for an eclectic range of international publications. Her latest book The Big Necessity is a travelogue around sanitation, a fact of life that is common to everyone, as necessary as breathing, and a source of endless fascination. Rose is a Yorkshire-woman, an Oxford graduate with a Masters in International Relations from University of Pennsylvania.

Appropriately for a college named after Dr John Snow who discovered the link between contaminated water and the spread of cholera; tonight’s Café is in support of WaterAid enabling the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education.

Space in the 21st Century - Exploration and Innovation at the Final Frontier

Dr. David Parker

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Landing on the Moon

For many, the golden age of space exploration was in the '60s. Few realise how the use of space now underpins our modern world. We are on the verge of a new age of discovery in which countries as diverse as India, South Africa and Sweden are strong players and in which space tourism opens a route for many more to experience the wonder of space. David Parker from the British National Space Centre will explore how the UK is involved and discuss some exciting prospects for the future.

Dave is Director of Space Science at BNSC, the government's partnership of space funding agencies. Having worked in the UK space industry for 14 years, he joined BNSC in 2004 taking responsibility for the UK's space science and exploration programme, a cornerstone of the UK's multi-billion pound space industry.

How long until the oceans are empty?

Dr Helen Scales

The world's oceans are at stretching point. Industrial fishing fleets venture further and deeper than ever before. But despite gloomy predictions that global fish stocks will collapse by 2050, it is still not too late for the oceans. How is science helping to solve the problem of over-fishing and what difference can consumers make?

Helen is a marine biologist, writer and broadcaster. Her PhD focused on coral reef fisheries in Borneo and she has worked for various conservation organisations specialising in fisheries and wildlife trade issues, including WWF and the World Conservation Union. Her first book, about the enduring relationship between people and seahorses, is due out in October 2009.

Evolutionary processes go on around us all the time. Understanding them is essential for our health, wealth and long-term future. Knowledge gained from evolutionary studies underpins human activities that include food production, health care, criminology, wildlife conservation and attempts to manage the effects of climate change. Evolutionary biology is much more than just a theory about past origins – it’s the key to confronting an uncertain future.

Dr. Phil Gates is Senior Lecturer in Botany at Durham University. He is a country diarist for the Northern Echo and The Guardian, and writes a monthly column in BBC Wildlife magazine. Phil presented “The Aliens are Coming” at our Café a couple of years ago.

King Coal, he's buried but not dead yet.

Professor Peter Sykes

The UK is no longer self-sufficient in energy and must seek new secure gas supplies. We have enormous residual coal reserves, from which we must extract gas in cleaner and greener ways. Underground coal gasification with carbon dioxide sequestration offers a way forward; but to control both extraction and disposal we require and are developing new high resolution geophysical monitoring tools.

Peter is Professor of Applied and Environmental Geophysics at Keele University with a current remit to make the University campus self-sufficient in energy. He is a Past President of the Geological Society of London, a member of the Board of the British Geological Survey and chaired the recent DEFRA committee developing criteria for site screening for Geological Disposal of Radioactive waste.

Cloudy, rain later...the changing face of news

presented by

Peter Barron

The newspaper industry is going through a period of historic change. The challenges and opportunities brought by the internet and mobile telephones have transformed the working environment for journalists. Will it mean the death of long-established newspaper brands or will they survive these uncertain and turbulent times? How can newspaper companies continue to be profitable with their traditional revenue streams disappearing? Will the amateur blogger kill off the professional journalist? These are some of the key questions

Peter Barron is editor of The Northern Echo. Raised in South Bank he got Jeremy Clarkson's job (by mistake) as a trainee reporter at the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph in 1980. Moving to The Northern Echo in 1984 he became editor in 1999, having left to edit the Hartlepool Mail for a year. He is a former UK Columnist of the Year.

The NHS at 60: Does it have a future?


David Hunter

Health care systems everywhere are in a state of permanent revolution as they struggle to cope with multiple pressures arising from changing demography, new technologies and the impact of globalisation. Focusing on the NHS, now in its 61st year, David will consider what the future holds. He will argue that the growing marketisation of the NHS in England poses major risks to its founding values and principles with no evidence that it will lead to an improved system. There is also an urgent need for the NHS and government to place more emphasis on promoting health rather than treating sickness if the health service is to remain affordable.

David is Professor of Health Policy and Management in the School of Medicine and Health and Wolfson Research Institute at Durham University. He is also Chair of the UK Public Health Association. He has observed and commented upon every major NHS reorganisation since its first in 1974. His most recent book, The Health Debate, published in September by Policy Press deals in greater depth with the issues to be covered in the talk.

Ageing, Vitality, Energy and the Environment - Co-Production of Knowledge, to be or not to be?

Bring your own life experiences to influence research around ageing, vitality, energy and the environment. The Beacon Project is a collaboration between Newcastle & Durham Universities and the Centre for Life to make universities more open to learning from ”everyday experts” in the North East. The Project is also involving young people in climate change through the Science Learning Centre.

Over the years many presenters at our Café have commented how much they have appreciated the contribution made by you, the audience. This evening will be another opportunity for you to influence the direction of research and the possibility of having a longer term personal involvement with the project

Catherine is the Beacon Co-inquiry and Project Manager. She has primarily been a youth worker for six years working in County Durham. Her work and keen interest in advocacy for young people and communities has taken her into many different areas of work that include working with citizens juries, empowering young people to achieve and being a co author on a journal piece that is going to be published in the Participation, Learning and Action Journal. Catherine is new to the Beacon but is bringing her experience and knowledge of working in communities to the project.

Flood Plains: Oil Exploration and House Building

The need to find more oil is advancing the frontiers of science and engineering as we try to increase the recovery rates of oil from ever more difficult reservoirs in the subsurface. In recent years exploration of ancient river deposits has been the focus of many oil companies and our understanding of how rivers react to ancient climate change will assist with future climate models, especially with where to build houses.

Dr Stuart Jones is a lecturer in sedimentology in the Department of Earth Sciences at Durham University. His research is centred on ancient river systems and how they respond to differing climatic settings. In 2006 he was awarded the prize of ‘STEMNET Science Ambassador of the Year’ for his Earth science outreach activities.

Our Implausible Universe

Professor Carlos Frenk

Cosmology confronts some of the most fundamental questions in science. How and when did our universe begin? What is it made of? How did it acquire its current appearance? A coherent picture of cosmic evolution, going back to about a micro-second after the Big Bang is beginning to emerge. However, fundamental questions, like the nature of the dark energy, remain unresolved.

Carlos is the Ogden Professor of Fundamental Physics and Director of the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University. He is one of the originators of the now widely accepted "cold dark matter" theory for the origin of galaxies and other cosmic structures. He has written over 200 scientific papers, edited two books and is the second most cited author in the world in the scientific literature on Space Sciences over the past decade. Carlos has appeared on radio and TV on numerous occasions and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2004.

Brain Death - Can We Survive It?

For some purposes, such as organ transplantation, the death of a human being is diagnosed from the loss of certain brain functions. A surprising number of other bodily processes remain intact beyond that point, some of them rather disturbing to the non-professional. So in what does - or should - my death really consist? Can I be dead for some purposes and not others? Join a sceptical philosopher in finding out!

Roman Villas -historical facts or planning problems ?

Richard Anis

Recently, archaeology has revealed an unsupected Roman Villa at Ingleby Barwick and an equally unsuspected Roman town at Sedgefield. This is of great interest to archaeologists, but how does it affect everyone else? Can such finds alter our understanding of our common past, or affect our daily life ? A White Paper, "Planning for a sustainable Future", shows that these matters are important far beyond the archaeological world.

Richard Anis is a Project Manager at Archaeological Services Durham University. His work is based on the intimate linkage between archaeology and the planning system.

Paul Brennan,
Head of the Teesside Genetics Unit

Can we use genetics to prevent death?

Health and disease, life and death are to an extent determined by our genes. Genetics helps us manipulate nature: so how about preventing death? Some members of our society have good reason to ask this question. Thousands have gene faults that increase their chances of dying: some suddenly, some from disease. How close are we to preventing their deaths; and how close are we to prolonging our own lives?

Paul has developed a national pilot site for cancer genetics services in Middlesbrough and is the regional lead for cardiovascular genetics. He is probably the only clinical geneticist in the UK to make death his speciality.

Alan Martin

Quarks, Leptons and the Higgs boson

At a fundamental level we are made of quarks and leptons. Symmetry plays a big role in nature. Moreover for some reason, nature makes three copies of itself. The search is on for the Higgs boson. The Large Hadron Collider being built at CERN, Geneva, which starts in 2007, should find it - if it exists!

Alan is a Professor of Theoretical Physics at Durham University and, although nominally retired, has a Emeritus Leverhulme Fellowship to research into high energy elementary particle interactions. Formerly head of Physics at Durham, he has written post-graduate level books, including Quarks and Leptons.

Dick Bird


Chaos and Evolution


The existence of species that remain stable for long periods of time poses two problems for conventional evolutionary theory. First why are there species? Second, why are there so many species? Dick explored these themes in his book /Chaos and Life/. Chaos theory brings two important concepts to these evolutionary questions: bifurcation, which accounts for the multiplicity of species; and the existence of attractors, which accounts for their stability. He will be explaining the relevance of these two aspects of chaos theory and putting forward some ideas as to how they might be realized in practical terms.

Dick is Visiting Scholar and sometime Senior Lecturer at Northumbria University, and past president of the Society for Chaos Theory in Psychology & Life Sciences.

Steve Lindsay


Malaria at Home and Abroad

Malaria remains one of the most devastating diseases of humankind, killing about two million children each year. Yet few realise that malaria was common in the marshes of southern England only 150 years ago. What made malaria disappear? Is it likely to come back? And what lessons can be learnt from the past that will inform us about malaria control today? These will be some of the questions tackled in this talk.

Steve is a disease ecologist with a passion for controlling pathogens spread by insects and a particular interest in designing simple tools to control malaria, based on field research in countries with endemic malaria. He is a Professor in Durham University's School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences.

The next Café Scientifique at Stockton will be held on

Tuesday 15th November

But Jim Feast is unable to lead the a discussion on nanotechnology so Dr Daniel Nettle, who was originally scheduled for September, will present…

Happiness: Can science tell us anything about human well-being?

What is happiness? How can it best be achieved? Is there a drug that can provide it, and if so, should you take it? These are questions that have preoccupied people since the dawn of time. But does modern psychology have anything useful to say? Daniel argues that science is now at a point of telling us some surprising things about the logic of our emotions.

Daniel is a lecturer in Psychology at the University of Newcastle and author of "Happiness: The Science Behind your Smile".


Jim will present “Nanotechnology, Phoenix or Phantasy?” at the July 2006 Café Scientifique, at the Arc, Dovecot Street, Stockton-on-Tees 7.45 pm for 8.00pm start

Eric Middleton

Science and the Spirit

Eric will take us from the awe and wonder of science today to the joy of experiencing the spiritual. From cosmology, the /Big Bang/, black holes, the mysteries and paradoxes of quantum theory, through superstrings and the M-theory of everything in eleven dimensions, to our hunger for spiritual dimensions and our awareness of the supernatural. Finding a language for describing the indescribable in the interface between physics, philosophy and theology.

Eric was formerly Principal of Prior Pursglove College. With higher degrees from Cambridge and Durham, he has worked and taught as a scientist and teacher, was a boxer, plays the violin, is a counsellor and qualified theologian and is currently involved with healing. His book /The New Flatlanders /arose from his students' challenges in science and faith.

Note: This is a change to the originally advertised topic for this date.

Paula Chadwick


Extrasolar Planets and Extraterrestrial Life

Powerful telescopes have shown us evidence for the existence of over 150 planets orbiting stars other than the Sun. Whilst it is difficult to detect small planets we have found some, the smallest is 6 to 8 times the mass of Earth. New telescopes and space missions operating over the next 15 - 20 years will make the task easier. It therefore seems that we may be slowly getting closer to finding evidence of life outside the solar system.


We will spend a short time reviewing the current evidence for extra-solar planets, then open the floor to a debate. What should we do if we find life on other planets? Eat them? Fight them? Give them new technology? Ask them over for dinner? Quarantine them forever?>br>

Paula is a senior lecturer in astronomy at the Durham University. She leads the team that recently was awarded for their innovative MirraTech aluminium mirror technology for use on hi-tech telescopes, lighting systems and solar power generation.

POSTPONED
Jim Feast

Nanotechnology: Phoenix or Phantasm?

"Nanotechnology" excites both optimism and fear depending on how it is presented, the word frequently appears in the media but is infrequently understood; Jim will attempt to provide an understanding. His contention is that nanoscience is a new name for things that have been with us since the origin of life on the planet, that the nano prefix usefully focuses attention on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of materials designed and assembled on the 1 to 100 nanometre size scale. A nanometre is 0.0000000001 of a metre.


Natural nanotechnology is ingested with mother's milk and synthetic nanotechnologies were developed in Mayan ceramics and in the stained glass of many European cathedrals. Tonight's Café will be concerned with the implications of nanotechnology for science and society today; what novel effects can be expected at this length scale? Do they present a threat or a potential benefit?


Jim is a chemist who collaborates with physicists, engineers, medical scientists and technologists in many countries. Although formally retired he is a Research Professor in Chemistry and Co-ordinator of the Durham Nanomaterials Centre and works in the Technical University of Eindhoven; his interests include self assembly, biomaterials, theatre, fine arts, fell walking in our Northern hills and cycling in The Netherlands. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and President designate of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

Henry Gee


Science and Fantasy




Every scientific hypothesis starts with the question "what if...", pre-supposing the ability to launch oneself into an invented world. This is just what Einstein did 100 years ago when he imagined what the world would look like from a beam of light. The connection between science and fantastic creations such as Tolkien's Middle-earth may seem remote, but is far closer than imagined by today's proponents of the Public Understanding of Science, who seek to expunge all imagination from scientific discourse – with potentially disastrous results.

Henry Gee is a Senior Editor at "Nature". In addition to his latest book "The Science of Middle-earth", he has written "Jacob's Ladder: The History of the Human Genome", and "Deep Time: Cladistics, the Revolution in Evolution".

Please ask for a ticket at the booking office to enable Arc to know how many people are in the Point theatre.

Roger Williams

If Nature gives does Nurture take away?




Many regard "nurture" as the province of the nuclear family. In the still raging debate as to the relative responsibilities of genes and environment in the causation of a range of childhood conditions (including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dyslexia etc) others are prepared to suggest that "parenting" is the universal panacea - by implication blaming the parent.

Roger would like us to consider whether such labels describe children who show evidence of either illness or abnormality, or rather evidence of variations in the nature and development of temperamental and personality characteristics. Could this explain why many children's difficulties present as problems around the age of school entry. Perhaps parents are meeting the needs of their children rather better than we have judged, but society is failing to consider the individuality of children, rather choosing to see them as widjets in the factories of education and social development.

Roger is a Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist in Stockton and holds an Honorary Senior Lectureship in the School for Health of the University of Durham. He is also an active member of the John Snow College Senior Common Room, a College Tutor and facilitates our CafÉ each month.

Changing Visions of the Earth




Our culture has too often viewed the earth with distaste as alien and and dangerous, essentially opposed to Heaven, Early Christians, living in a confused and threatening age, taught detatchment from earth and concentration on the afterlife. Enlightenment sages still did not really see humans as part of the earthly biosphere but rather as pure minds, obsrvving and controlling the earth in their own interests....
We still haven't got this right.



Mary is a philosopher who has written many books on the relation between humans and the rest of nature, the best known of which are "Beast and Man" and "Science as Salvation". She was formerly Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Fuel Cells & the Hydrogen Economy
Tees lights the way forward


The search for new energy alternatives is becoming urgent, and Fuel Cells are undoubtedly part of the answer. They are at leats twice as efficient as conventional engines, operate silently, and emit little more than water. Over the next few years we wil be starting to use them to power everything from laptops to buses. Our region has most of the attributes required to be right at the forefront of this exciting new technology, and this session wil explore the opportunities and implications. A Tees lighthouse will be using fuel cells in the near future.

The Evolution Of Ethics,
Do Values Change?



There is some evidence that values in relation to medical ethics have changed over the last 50 years. Examples will be presented of clinical issues which have forced a re-evaluation of beliefs, and in some instances changed opinions. The question is whether there are a series of core values which cannot, and should not change, but in addition a range of subsidiary values which can, and may be modified.

Fuel Cells & the Hydrogen Economy
Tees Lights The Way Forward



The search for new energy alternatives is becoming urgent, and Fuel Cells are undoubtedly part of the answer. They are at least twice as efficient as conventional engines, operate silently, and emit little more than water. Over the next few years we will be starting to use them to power everything from laptops to buses. Our region has most of the attributes required to be right at the forefront of this exciting new technology, and this session will discuss the opportunities and the implications. A Tees light house will be using fuel cells in the near future.


Ben is the Director of the Fuel Cell Applications Facility at the Centre for Process Innovation on Teesside.

Tees Valley - where Nature meets Industry

The industrial development of the Tees Valley was based in its natural resource endowment and in turn this development had considerable impacts upon the environment, via pollution, the development of major urban areas and industrial infrastructure. For many years, the trade off between jobs, incomes and environmental impacts was seen as an acceptable one but as industrial employment began to decline, the effects of pollution became increasingly challenged. Industrial decline also led to large areas of derelict land. This led to an increased emphasis on environmental improvement and the perception that a high quality environment is a necessary requirement of modern economic development, as well as helping to enhance health and the quality of life. This is leading to a search for environmentally sustainable forms of economic development to sustain the Tees Valley in the future.
Ray is an economic geographer with a long history of working on economic development and industry/environment relations He is currently Director of the Wolfson Research Institute in Stockton and a Professor of Geography at the University of Durham.

Mined over Dark Matter
Recent observations have revolutionized our understanding of what makes the universe tick. One question remains unanswered — what is actually holding it together? A wide range of experiments have shown that the normal matter, which makes up the stars, planets and ourselves, accounts for only a small fraction the universe's total mass. Come and hear about the work taking place on your doorstep, which aims to reveal the dark side of the universe.

LAN GamingCyber Chaos returns to Stockton Central Library

AN EXTREMELY popular gaming session is set to return to Stockton Central Library this month to offer youngsters in the Borough the opportunity to participate in Local Area Network (LAN) gaming.

Stockton Council's Library service has teamed up with Cyber Chaos Ltd to run another day of LAN gaming sessions on Saturday, July 24, from 10am - 4pm.

The event, sponsored by Connexions, is aimed at promoting an interest in IT for youngsters who do not have access to computers, while at the same time developing relationships through team play.

CyberChaos, which started in April, hires the relevant networking hardware to companies to run these gaming sessions, which proved exceptionally popular when it was run earlier this year.

Sue Anderson, Stockton Council's Libraries and Information Services Manager, said: "The event we held in April was extremely popular, so much so that the afternoon session was oversubscribed and we had to turn people away. The young people attending the event asked for more sessions and we are more than happy to be able to oblige.

"Opportunities for team play on games such as Enemy Territory, Battlefield 1942, Need for Speed Underground, Quake and Unreal Tournament will help to introduce computer gaming and the wider benefits of Information Technology. Events such as this strengthen our ability to remove the divide between those who have access to computers and those who do not."

The event is free and aimed at youngsters aged 12 and over, however anyone interested in taking part needs to book a place at the Library by calling (01642) 526522.

BLAZE!It’s ‘tickets please!’ as the first ever opera to be staged in a museum will be pulling into the Darlington Railway Museum from 27 - 30 July at 7.30pm and at 8.15 on Saturday 31 July for the final gala performance.

BLAZE! is a community opera starring Middlesbrough opera star Suzannah Clarke, the professional performers from Northern Stage and 100 young people from schools across the Tees Valley. Funded by Creative Partnerships Tees Valley BLAZE! is one of the biggest arts events in the region.

Tickets range from just £2.50 to £7 - booking is from Darlington Civic Theatre on 01325
486 555.

Using the powerful backdrop of the Darlington Railway Museum, BLAZE! features Stephenson’s original locomotive, and much of the fascinating old rolling stock, all maintained by the experts at Darlington Railway Preservation Society.

The opera appeals to all age groups and is based on a central theme of harmony. The story is
captivating: when a young boy steals the Bell from Stephenson’s Locomotive, disruption and mayhem descend. Disruption in time, disruption in the community and disruption for the Briggs Family.

Time and space collapse with the unexpected return of a son from the affluent south and Stephenson himself reappears with a mission to punish the young thief and demand the return of the famous Bell.

Spring Clean Team To Attack Ingleby Barwick



Satrday 8th May at 0930
Flyer now available



Europe’s biggest private housing development is destined to be a cleaner place to live this spring thanks to the efforts of a local church-based group.



“Ingleby Clean Up Day” has been organised by Andy and Susan Smith, members of Ingleby Community Church, to address vandalised areas and the continuing litter problem in Ingleby Barwick.



“We wanted to do put something back into the community, and believe that actions speak louder than words,” says Andy. “The work of vandals can often be repaired quite easily, and makes a great impact on community feel.”



Meeting at the Community Centre in the Beckfields area on Saturday 8th May at 0930. Teams will focus on key areas that need litter clearance or graffiti removal. The day will end at 5.30 with a community Barbeque and live music. And the teams are looking for more willing volunteers!



“Folks don’t have to join us for the full day. Everyone is welcome for even a part or a whole of our three two-hour sessions. We don’t just want to do this for the residents but with the residents – everyone is welcome to join us for as long or as little time as they can spare,” says Susan.



The initiative follows on from the success of “Santa’s Sleigh”, which toured the estate at Christmas 2003, and brought residents onto the streets in their hundreds. “The annual response to “Santa’s Sleigh” is heart-warming. We hope that our clean-up day will inject some more goodwill and into an area badly lacking in community feel,” says Andy.

Santa is Coming To Ingleby Barwick!Christmas on Europe’s biggest private housing development should be that much brighter this Christmas thanks to the efforts of a local church

Santa Claus will be touring parts of the Ingleby Estate in the days leading up to Christmas. And just in case there is a shortage of snow, the “sleigh” will be motorised, and provided by a local farmer!

Church leaders were concerned that, for an area of so many houses, so little was provided for traditional “community” events. In 2001, members of Ingleby Community Church decided to tour the streets in Victorian dress and distribute sweets, a Christmas card, and an invitation to their carol service.

“This is the third year that we have helped with Santa Claus’s visit! ” says Jez Fletcher, leader of Ingleby Community Church. “The area is so well provided for in many ways, but often lacks that “community” feel. This event certainly brings folks out of their houses onto the streets, and the response we receive is wonderful.””

“There is no “catch”. It’s just simply a way of us helping to inject some community feel into the area. We are not collecting for a cause, but if anyone wishes to give proceeds will be given to The Butterwick Trust.”

“Santa’s Sleigh” will be touring the area between Monday 15th – Friday 19th December from 5 pm to 7pm.

Ingleby Community Church meets every Sunday evening at 6-30 at the Function Suite at Bannatyne’s Health Club, Myton Way.
