A Free Press campaign has been praised in Parliament for helping to bring down 'rip off' Valley fuel prices. Back in June, we revealed a fuel price postcode lottery meant it was costing drivers up to 3 more to fill up in Rossendale than in neighbouring towns like Bolton and Bury. Rossendale MP Jake Berry said the campaign had had a major influence on bringing fuel prices in Rossendale in line with elsewhere, as we can reveal that: Average and peak fuel prices in major Rossendale towns are now LOWER than both Bury and Bolton. Since June, fuel price rises have risen up to THREE times faster outside the Valley than inside it. Tesco's Haslingden and Rawtenstall forecourts no longer charge more than its Bury store. Price differentials of up to 5p per litre compared to Bolton's best prices are down to a penny a litre. Mr Berry praised the Free Press in a House of Commons debate last week on rural fuel prices. He told MPs: "I want to pay special tribute to my local paper, the Rossendale Free Press. "With me, earlier this summer, it launched a "Rip off at the pumps" campaign. We took the price at our local Tesco and compared it with the price at the Asda in Bury, and, as I said, there was a 5p difference. "I personally met representatives of Tesco here in Westminster and asked how they arrived at that price." He continued: "Earlier today, I checked the price difference again following the campaign run by me and the Rossendale Free Press. We have taken the difference down from 5p to less than half a pence." Speaking to the Free Press, Mr Berry said we should not be complacent that the disparity in petrol prices might not creep back in. He added: "Rossendale is a large rural community and I will continue to fight to ensure that our prices are near to the cheapest that can be obtained." "The success of the campaign has eased the pain for drivers, coming against a background of generally increasing fuel prices. In the Commons debate it was revealed fuel prices had risen 38 per cent since 2007. Glenn Bulcock, chairman of Rossendale taxi association, said many cabbies based in Bacup fill up in Tesco to make use of cheaper supermarket prices. He said: "As taxi drivers we sometimes have to fill up where we can. "Bacup seems to be one of the most expensive places for petrol and I do notice that while they do drop the prices in Haslingden and Rawtenstall, Bacup doesn't follow suit." Rossendale council leader Alyson Barnes welcomed the levelling of the playing field, but said motorists were still being hit hard in the pocket. She added: "It is good news that we are not paying more than our neighbours, but I still think we are paying too much for fuel. "I think it's another thing that people are having to consider, along with expensive food and it just gets harder and harder for people." Haslingden MP Graham Jones said he welcomed anything to cut fuel prices for cash strapped motorists, but called for the government to do more by cutting fuel duty or VAT. He said: "I imagine a lot of people use the garage at the top of Rising Bridge like I do as they're the cheapest I know of. Cutting fuel duty will put people's money back in their pockets. Not so long ago it used to cost 40 50 to fill up, but now it's taking 70 to fill up the tank." Tesco, which runs two of the busiest forecourts in the borough in Rawtenstall and Haslingden, set their prices to be competitive in the local catchment area. The supermarket giant said they work hard to bring great value to their customers when they buy petrol. A spokesperson added: "Our clear goal remains to be competitive on the price of petrol and diesel within the local catchment of the store. We explained our policy to Mr Berry when we met, as we do not enter into pricing discussions about individual stores."

Between 1959 and 1986, Nicklaus set a record for most career victories at major golf tournaments by capturing 20 championships. Eighteen of Nicklaus's titles were at tournaments known as grand slams, professional golf's premier events. Encarta Quick, what do you think of Jack Nicklaus? Jack Nicklaus is my hero! I didn't know much about Jack Nicklaus but now I do. Meh. I'm cooler. Nicklaus accumulated a record 18 professional majors in a PGA Tour career lasting 25 years, from 1962 to 1986. Later, on the Champions Tour, the senior version of the PGA Tour, he won 8 of that tour's majors between 1990 and 1996. Both records still stand today. Nicklaus has also taken part in many off course activities, including golf course design, golf instruction book writing, and running his own tournament on the PGA Tour, the Memorial Tournament. Together with Arnold Palmer and Gary Player (collectively known as the "Big Three"), he is credited with turning golf into the major spectator sport it has become. While Palmer brought golf into the television era, it was the developing Nicklaus Palmer Player rivalry that drove subsequent interest. Nicklaus began his professional career in 1962. Open. To this day, Nicklaus is still the youngest ever winner of this event. By the end of the year Nicklaus had picked up two more wins, those being the Seattle Open and the Portland Open back to back. He completed 1962 with over 60,000 of prize money, placed third on the tour money list, and was named Rookie of the Year. In 1963 Nicklaus won two of the four major championships the Masters and the PGA Championship. Along with three other wins including the Tournament of Champions, he placed second on the tour money list with just over $100,000. Despite not winning a major in 1964, Nicklaus placed first on the tour money list for the first time in his career with a margin of $81.13 over Palmer. At the British Open at St Andrews, Nicklaus set a new record for the lowest score in the final 36 holes with 66 68. Despite this, Tony Lema won the event with Nicklaus placing second. Nicklaus won the Masters in 1965 and 1966, becoming the first consecutive winner of this event. In 1966 he also won the British Open at Muirfield in Scotland, which was the only major he had failed to win up to this time.

Nike Roshe Run Hyp Women Grey Pink Quilted,In January of 2006, TOMS founder, Blake Mycoskie, revisited Argentina; wherein, he had competed in the Amazing Race with his sister. In befriending local Argentineans, Blake learned that there was a great need for shoes amongst the children he had met. After returning to the United States, Blake decided to start a company that would provide: One for One; a pair of shoes donated, for every pair sold. Blake stated, "I'm going to start a shoe company, and for every pair we sell, I'll give a pair to someone who needs them". In 2006 alone, TOMS shoes gave over 10,000 shoes to children of Argentina. In 2009 TOMS gave over 100,000 shoes to children of Haiti. Since May of 2006, TOMS has given over 650,000 pair of shoes to needing children of more than twenty countries. The name, TOMS was derived for the desire to give proper foot health for the children of 'TOMorrow'. There are several children at risk of illness that grow up in barefoot environments. TOMS research has discovered that without shoes, children: o Develop soil transmitted diseases while working, playing or walking to school o Can display a number of open sores and cuts that come from walking across rocks and bare land o Develop podo at a young age. Podo is a physical disease that starts in early childhood, giving off a putrid odor that can damage the limbs of little ones. TOMS shoes is based upon an alpargata style of footwear. With numerous colors, fabrics and designs, each pair is a distinct piece of art in itself. The alpargata shoe style currently sold, has been worn by farmers of Argentina for over one hundred years. These cotton or canvas shoes are constructed in a lightweight model, with a rubber sole. TOMS is also now selling vegan styles of their popular shoes. Blake states, "We require that factories operate under sound labor conditions, pay fair wages and follow local labor standards. A code of conduct is signed by all factories". TOMS shoes has received much recognition, in not only the world of philanthropy, but also in the world of fashion. In October of 2007, the company received the People's Design Award, which was determined by online voters. Blake Mycoskie has been asked to speak on CNBC, meetings at The White House, as well as being noted in TIMES magazine. On April 8, 2010, TOMS and Blake Mycoskie hosted 'One Day Without Shoes'. TOMS challenged individuals worldwide to go a day without shoes to better raise awareness for children who go without shoes each day. Over 250,000 people worldwide went barefoot in support of the 3rd Annual, 'One Day Without Shoes'. It is not a secret that TOMS shoes are not only a hip solution to every day footwear, but also create awareness for a noble cause. With ever growing popularity, TOMS is making a difference in the world of feet and fashion.

The strip of wood that lines the bottom of a wall to the beginning of the floorboards is commonly referred to as the molding. Base molding is the small strip of wood (or other material) that protect the part of the wallpaper or paint job that withstands damage from foot traffic, furniture and other normal wear and tear at the bottom of the wall, and crown molding is the material or strip of wood that lines te top of the wall, primarily for decoration. Base molding is typically used in conjunction with wood floors, but can be used for practical or decorative means with carpeted or tiled floors as well. Installation of base (sometimes called shoe) molding is relatively simple, but does require a fair amount of knowledge when it comes to measuring the pieces and using nail guns to install the wood, especially in the corners. In this free video clip, our expert will explain the essentials of base molding, helping you understand the uses for it, as well as how to cut the wood, measure it, and install with nail guns. Learn how to cut the corner pieces, how to use a compressor and nail gun, and tips for applying inside and outside corner molding pieces correctly.

Is a chicken pox vaccine for children an alternative? And contraception for the over 35s: can you take the pill until the menopause? Mark Porter finds out why we're so poor at First Aid. And if you're switching to cheaper drugs, does the size and colour influence how you take your medicine. From this autumn, people over 70 will be offered Zostavax, a one off jab to protect against shingles a late complication of chickenpox that causes a nasty crusting rash, and which can leave those affected in pain for months and sometimes years afterwards. But there is another vaccine that protects against chickenpox, and which could be given to children to stop them catching the virus in the first place. So why has the Department of Health opted for a jab that prevents a late complication of chickenpox, rather than the disease itself? Adam Finn is Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Bristol. Yes I am, I believe that prevention is better than cure and in fact in this case there isn't a cure, so I think that we should be using this vaccine. Clearly that needs to be done at a sensible price and clearly we need to know that we can do it in a way that will really control the disease. And if you're from the slightly biased perspective that I have as a paediatrician working in hospital you see a lot of trouble and illness and suffering caused by the disease. I think it's a good analogy to draw with measles, which also was a common disease that we all got and people of my generation and most of us were fine afterwards but a minority of the children that got measles died of it and that's often cited as a reason for measles immunisation. Chickenpox is really no different from that, it's also a disease that's normally fairly mild, can leave you with a bit of scarring but a minority of children who get it and certainly adults who get it can get very sick indeed. It would also be of benefit to pregnant mothers, who had not had chickenpox, who wouldn't have to worry about being exposed. There is a risk if you get chickenpox as a pregnant woman who's never had chickenpox before of course that that virus can affect the foetus and cause abnormalities and illness in the unborn child. And actually in practical terms the real trouble that this causes is that not infrequently mothers who are pregnant have children who have chickenpox and there's a big panic around that and they have to be given injections of antibodies to try and minimise the risks of transmission to the baby. So although it doesn't cause trouble in terms of damage to children very often it causes a lot of anxiety and medical expense. Well our plan is to introduce a vaccine against shingles starting this autumn and this will be a programme that we will roll out with increasing numbers of groups of individuals being advised to be vaccinated, so we will start the programme with 70 year olds and indeed the 79 year olds in the first year, then the second year we'll do 70 plus 78 plus 79 and then each year we'll successively bring in more individuals, so that we have vaccinated the group that's at highest risk of getting shingles. Yes we looked very carefully at the balance between vaccinating against chickenpox in children to stop people getting the virus at all and vaccinating against shingles to stop them getting the complications from the virus. In terms of the burden on people and the burden on the health service shingles is a far greater issue. People can be really unwell with shingles and it can go on for a really long time, so preventing that was the first priority. There are also theoretical concerns about vaccinating children and not really getting rid of the virus completely from our community and then there's a risk that you catch chickenpox at an older age when the complications are worse. Well, let me deal with the second first. It's a very safe vaccine, there really are very, very few complications from the vaccine, it's very attenuated, that means it's very weakened in terms of the disease it causes, but it does give good protection. So the complications are very rare and by and large mild. In terms of the duration of protection then the evidence, which is only as long as the vaccine's being used, is that you get good protection for probably eight to 10 years and that's why we've chosen the age that we've chosen. Professor David Salisbury. Now if you are on regular medication from your GP you are probably all too familiar with moves to cut the NHS bill by switching to cheaper alternatives of the same drug. The new version will contain exactly the same active ingredient, but it is unlikely to look the same and new research suggests that the appearance of a medicine may affect the way you take it. Inside Health's Margaret McCartney joins me now from our Glasgow studio? Margaret, tell us about this new research. So this study is from America and it looked at people who were taking drug tablet treatments for epilepsy. And they looked at a large amount of people who had stopped taking their medication and compared them to people who continued taking their medication. And when they looked back to try and find out why that was what the difference was between these two groups they found that the people who had stopped the medication were more likely to have had a change in their tablet shape, size or colour beforehand. Absolutely, now it's important to point out that there was a small difference only between this group, it wasn't enormous but there is such a big problem with people not taking medication that they're prescribed to begin with. So the World Health Organisation estimate that only about 50% of people will take medication as they have been prescribed. We know that statin tablets are stopped at five years in between 6 and 30% of people who are meant to be taking them and some drug treatments for mental illness about 50% of people in some studies have been found not to take them after a period of time. So if this is one of the reasons why people are not taking them and perhaps they're better on them than not this might be something quite important. Absolutely. Now what was fascinating in this study that just one tablet, a drug called carpamazepine, which is used for epilepsy and some other conditions as well, they found that during the course of the study the tablets could be either pink, black, blue green, brown grey, yellow or blue yellow, so it's incredibly difficult to keep track of which tablet is which, especially if you've got more than one to take at the same time. So I think it makes it very difficult for patients. And there's been a lot of studies done in the UK when they ask people what bothers about you about your tablets, do you feel okay about taking them, people say well actually it confuses me, I feel myself getting quite stressed about them because I don't really know what I'm taking or what I'm meant to be taking and the tablets keep looking different month to month. Well, the European laws on drug manufacture are very, very stringent about the quality of the active drug that's inside the tablets, what they're not at all stringent about is how the tablet should look or what size it should be or what colour it should be. We've even had things recently and it's for all the right reasons, we want to save the NHS money, we want to put money where it can be best spent even changing things over, for example, one tablet, a 40 milligram capsule, is much more expensive than two 20 milligram capsules but you can see how confusing it can get if you're on several medications at once and we keep making cost saving changes which are constantly changing, so you're never really in a situation where things are steady, it's always in a situation of flux, and actually becomes very confusing for people. Drug companies take note! Margaret McCartney thank you very much. The charity believes tens of thousands of lives could be saved every year if more of us knew how to help in an emergency and 17 year old Guy Chesney Evans might have been one of them, according to his mother Beth. Guy was riding along a country road in Oxford with three friends, he was on his motorbike and they were driving in convoy along the road. Guy just came off the motorbike, he keeled over and scooted along the grass verge and he ended up in the ditch. His friends obviously stopped, shocked, they didn't know what had happened. They dialled 999. Sadly they weren't given any first aid instructions at all, so Guy didn't receive any first aid. What happened was his heart had stopped and he wasn't breathing. The only thing that might have made a difference was if someone had known how to give CPR. They were all 17, they had never had first aid lessons either in school or anywhere else, all that they could think of doing was to put their jackets over him to keep him warm. One of the recurring themes we see where first aid is formally part of the curriculum not only do we have a greater level of first aid skills and knowledge and a greater willingness to act in the context of an emergency but we also see that the perception of the subject is very different because one of the challenges that we face here in the UK is that it's perceived as slightly geeky and freaky as a subject, as it were, so therefore if you speak to most people that we do in relation to first aid they will talk about it in the context of learning it in the church hall on a Tuesday night, people using slings and all of those kind of almost dated analogies of the subject, rather than the initial intervention at the scene of an emergency. Well it has never been on the curriculum, I mean we are now working with government in terms of getting it on the secondary curriculum and the primary curriculum and I think part of the issue is that while you and I may acknowledge it as a life skill it is not seen by many people, including key decision makers in government, as that. So there's this perception issue that it's a nice thing to have and again coming back to the European perspective in Europe it's actually seen as the ultimate humanitarian act. Yes, I think that one of the biggest misconceptions there is about first aid is complexity and there's a belief that, for example, in relation to putting somebody on their side in the recovery position is one of the most common first aid skills that we've taught earlier today, there's a perception there that there are 11 or 12 discrete steps, in medicine you just flick the person on their side, we're not going to be quite that rudimentary in the first aid world but the principle is important, so if you teach it as 12 discrete steps there are certain members of the public who will then believe that there are potentially 11 ways that they will get it wrong as it were. We're not preoccupied any longer with this whole textbook approach to it, so keep it simple.
