A patient suspected of suffering from the deadly Ebola virus left quarantine in Monrovia to search for food at a local market. The video shows him being chased and finally being caught by doctors. He is forced back into an ambulance while scared and angry crowds watched on. One local woman said care for Ebola patients was so inadequate they were not even being fed. “The patients are hungry, they are starving. No food, no water. The government need to do more,” she said. More than 1,550 people in four West African countries have died from the virus since the outbreak was first recorded in March. Liberia has the highest infection rate with around 700 deaths out of 1,327 suspected and confirmed cases. What is in the news today?

It is the realisation of a project dreamt up by Ottoman sultans more than a century ago. The tunnel is the world's first connecting two continents and was inaugurated on the 90th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey. The engineering feat spans 13 kilometres and will carry subway commuters in Istanbul, which is Europe's biggest city with a population of 15 million people. An estimated two million cross the Bosphorus Strait daily. Work began in 2004 on what is one of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan pet projects designed to change the face of Turkey.Archaeological excavations delayed completion. Eventually the tunnel will serve high-speed and freight trains. The idea for a rail tunnel below the Bosphorus dates back to 1860 while it is believed at one time one Sultan had French engineers draw up plans for a submerged tunnel which was never built and the peninsula remained intact. Now the Marmaray tunnel, an immersed tube set in the seabed has joined the two continents. One point four kilometres of its full length is fully immersed some 60 metres below the surface. It can carry around 1.5 million passengers per day. The total cost topped three point three billion euros and the government hopes it will develop into an important trading route. Marmaray is set on a silty seabed and is 20 kilometres from the active North Anatolian Fault raising fears it could be at risk from a large earthquake. But its free floating structure has been designed to withstand a quake with a magnitude of 9. Its interlocking construction means each section can be sealed off. The Yenikapi station on the European side of Istanbul will showcase relics which were uncovered during the tunnel's construction. Many date back as far a 8,500 years. The excavation site included a Byzantine port and 13 shipwrecks. Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

Former Khmer Rouge soldier faces up to past
 
06:18
http://www.euronews.com/ Welcome to Kampong Thom, cradle of Pol Pot, the infamous Khmer Rouge leader.   We are here to meet Chin Meth, on her journey through history.   Enrolled by the Khmer Rouge at the age of 17, she has decided to be a witness against a former Khmer Rouge leader on trial.    "When I come back to my native village, I feel sad because I've lost all I had here," she says.   Just like her village, Chin Meth still bears the marks of that painful era. "My mother was dead. I was brought up by my aunt, and then I was called to be a Khmer Rouge soldier. When I came home, all my relatives were dead. My uncle, my great-aunt, and the 20 friends who had been enrolled with me," she says.   Chin Meth's life changed drastically in 1974, when she was recruited by the Khmer Rouge along with all the other young people in her village.   She didn't yet know she was about to serve a regime of terror which would lead to the death of some two million Cambodians - around one fifth of the country's population.   Chin Meth and her fellow female recruits were "re-educated" by the party to serve the revolution.   "They trained us to be tough, not to think about our relatives, or our parents," she says. "We had to sacrifice everything, including our personal belongings."   Chin Meth was then taught how to use weapons. On the battlefield, her female unit was in charge of carrying ammunition, and evacuating the wounded.   When the Khmer Rouge moved on Phnom Penh in 1975, the women were in charge of cleaning up the houses of those chased from their homes. "When I was cleaning up the people's belongings, I saw dead bodies in the houses," she says.   "The Khmer Rouge soldiers evacuated the town over three days. Everyone had to leave. There were people who didn't want to leave their belongings behind, and old people who didn't want to or couldn't leave their homes. They were killed on the spot."   She was then sent to work in the fields by the Khmer regime. Conditions were extremely harsh. "At first, when we worked in the rice fields, we were well fed. But then we were given only a bit of rice, mixed with tree roots, maize or swamp cabbage. My group started to rebel."   As a result, she was sent to Phnom Penh's infamous Tuol Sleng prison, otherwise known as S21. More than 12,000 people died in this former school that Pol Pot's regime turned into a prison camp.   "This picture was taken when I was arrested, I was 19," she says, pointing out her mugshot among hundreds of others on the wall.   "This is my friend from the same village as me, and this is another friend. This one was the group leader. They're all dead."   "I was held captive here, there were three of us in here, for nearly a month," she says, pointing out a tiny cell.   "I could hear the sound of blows and screams coming from upstairs. That's where I was interrogated and tortured. I still have the scars."   She survived the death camp and was sent to work in another camp, called S24, which is now a prison. She spent two years there, along with women and children, half of whom did not survive the working conditions.   "It was hell, worse than death. I worked the fields, I was tortured, I built dams, I dug dykes. We pulled the cart instead of the oxen to plough the fields. My feet were full of sores, my face was covered with skin disease. We were so thin that when we crouched, our knees reached up over our heads," she says.   When the Vietnamese invaded and took over Phnom Penh in 1979, the Khmer Rouge forced her to flee to the mountains with them. She was captured by the Vietnamese a year later, and then released.   After years of silence, Chin Meth decided to face up to the past by bearing witness at the trials of former Khmer Rouge leaders.   The first opened in 2009. She was the first female survivor to testify against Duch, former head of the S21 and S24 camps.   "It takes time to forget past sorrows," she says. "I can't forget. Even though the court has condemned former Khmer Rouge leaders, until this day, I haven't forgotten anything."   For a while, Chin Meth lived in fear of reprisals from relatives of those who were put on trial.   It is the price to pay, she says, to be rehabilitated as a member of the Cambodian community, and help build a better future for her country.   Find us on: Youtube http://bit.ly/zr3upY Facebook http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter http://twitter.com/euronews

You are paddleboarding next to 15 great white sharks! - CA police warn beachgoers
 
01:35
California paddleboarders found themselves in what resembled an outtake from 'Jaws' when the chilling announcement was made that they were just metres from a school of around 15 great white sharks. In helicopter footage taken by Orange County Sheriff's Department, the creatures' forms, which the aircraft's occupants observe are 10 feet (3 meters) long, could be seen through the clear water just off the California coastline. A loudspeaker announcement could be heard coming from the helicopter saying that the area is "heavily populated at the moment with large great white sharks" and that the creatures have come "as close as the surf line". The paddleboarders are then advised to "exit the water in a calm manner".

That meant song lyrics, melodies and photography. He died age 71 from liver failure in Southampton, New York. Brooklyn-born, with middle class parents, he hated school, learned guitar from the radio, studied journalism, film and writing at university, and started a band. It was the sixties. Pop artist Andy Warhol [died 1987] managed The Velvet Underground. Reed said: "Everything I do is from the outside and if it hadn't been for Andy who knows whether we would've had a chance to do everything. So, I think I owe everything to Mr Warhol, thanks. " Commercially, the early band failed, but culturally, their debut album had huge influence. The Velvet Underground only made three more after that. Reed's second solo album was Transformer, in 1972. Twenty-five-year-old David Bowie produced it. The misfit-hustler anthem "Walk on the Wild Side" was a cult hit from that which never wore out. "I get personal satisfaction out of making things that don't exist. I follow a passion," Reed said decades later. That 'passion' was famously low-key. Reed was counter-culture 'uber-cool'. His work did drugs, sexuality, love, death. New York street punk went visual, too. "I have always been taking photos and then I met somebody, he said why don't you put them together, as so we did." Photography happened a lot on tour. He got more into it starting in the '70s. The bisexual Reed married three times, the last with experimental performance artist Laurie Anderson. Later in life he finally reined in his substance abuse. Those who love Reed, the musician-poet, call him many things, even a romantic.

It was a ceremony incorporating much military tradition,including a final fly past with the flag of the rainbow nation which Nelson Mandela had led to democracy. It was here as a young boy, he wrote that he had learned to listen to tribal leaders before venturing his own opinions. Earlier the coffin had been taken from a private ceremony in the Mandela home to a marquis, which had been specially built to hold the 4,500 invited guests to the State Funeral. Tributes were paid from African presidents, and on of his granddaughters, Nandi remembered a disciplinarian who taught the family many lessons. "We shall miss you 'tatum kulu'. We shall miss your stern voice when you were not pleased with our behaviour. We will carry lessons that you taught us through our lives as we make you proud. As South Africans we must stop pointing fingers but rather we must lead by example as you did and do something positive for South Africa." Ninety five candles burned reflecting each year of his remarkable life and traditional music echoed around the marquis. The izibongo, a song of praise in Xhosa, was sung before President Jacob Zuma spoke. "We sincerely thank you for dedicating a life to building a free and democratic South Africa in which all shall live in equality and dignity. One thing we can assure you of today Tata as you take your final steps is that South Africa will continue to rise."

A Japanese lifeline to Haiti

An earthquake on the 12th of January 2010 devastated the region around Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince. It killed more than 300,000 people and left one and a half million homeless in one of the poorest countries in the world. The ensuing cholera epidemic has killed 10,000 to date but thanks to Japanese assistance in collaboration with UNICEF, the outbreak is now under control. … READ MORE : http://www.euronews.com/2018/02/15/a-japanese-lifeline-to-haiti What are the top stories today?

Recycling tyres: road to success - business planet

Eco-businesses employ a total of 3.4 million people across Europe. This week, Business Planet takes a trip to Croatia for a closer look at a very specific kind of innovation: noise barriers. The noise barriers being built along the motorway near Zagreb are spearheading innovation. They are made up of 40 percent of recycled tyres and are among the most efficient on the market. They are the result of a project launched in 2009 as part of the European Eco-Innovation programme. One of the companies involved in their production is an SME which recycles tyres, turning them into a powder used to build the barriers. It's a great opportunity for innovation, says the company's chairman: "If we achieve the goals that were set, we're hoping to hire up to 30 people and double our production capacity," says Damir Kirić, the chairman of Gumiimpex. The powder is mixed with cement at another factory, where the noise barriers are moulded. Here, too, it's hoped the project will help hire an extra 60 people. "It's opened up new doors. We're hoping to increase turnover by 25 percent in Croatia, but also in neighbouring countries," says the Managing Director of Beton Lučko, Danica Jelenić. It's a serious investment. Danica Jelenić put in 355 000 euros. She is delighted with the result. "Taking part in this project has really strengthened our position. We're taken seriously by other players on the market," she says. The European Eco-Innovation programme gives access to subsidies to launch a project. To this day, it has benefited 200 projects throughout Europe. The noise barrier project was born at Zagreb University. It is the brainchild of professor Stjepan Lakušić. Half of the project was funded by the Eco-Innovation programme, which provided half a million euros. Now, the plan is to sell this innovative technology to neighbouring countries, where there is always a need for fresh ideas on how to recycle tyres. "You need 65 tonnes of recycled tyres to produce a kilometre-long barrier that's one metre high. That's 8,000 old tyres," says RUCONBAR Project Coordinator Stjepan Lakušić. This new technology has already attracted a number of potential buyers seduced by the low production cost. "Using recycled products brings down the cost by ten to eighteen percent compared to similar products on the market," says Stjepan Lakušić.

Planck maps the dawn of time - space
 
12:01
http://www.euronews.com/ Scientists have traced a unique new map of the first light of the universe, and raised profound questions about the Big Bang. The image of the cosmic microwave background they have released was taken by ESA's Planck satellite, and its results could have a significant impact on the field of cosmology. "It turns that most of this image, most of this map, fits beautifully our very simple model. At the same time we find some strange things, and this is where it starts to get interesting, because we see some signs of things that do not fit," explains ESA's Planck Project Scientist Jan Tauber. "Roughly speaking the things that we are finding that are not as we expect are features that are across the whole sky. When you look only at the large features on this map you find that that our best fitting model, our best theory has a problem fitting the data, there is a lack of signal that we would expect to see," he says. The news that the early universe is not quite as was thought has left the greatest minds in cosmology spinning with excitement. George Efstathiou, Professor of Astrophysics, University of Cambridge, is a key member of the Planck Science Team. "The idea that you can actually experimentally test what happened at the Big Bang still amazes me," he says. The Big Bang theory remains intact of course, but the concept of inflation could be put to test by the Planck data. "We see these strange patterns that are not expected in inflationary theory, the simplest inflationary theories," explains Efstathiou. "So there's a real possibility that we have an incomplete picture. It may be that we have been fooled, that inflation didn't happen. It's perfectly possible that there was some phase of the universe before the Big Bang actually happened where you can track the history of the universe to a pre-Big Bang period." The Planck mission could test ideas about how the early universe was formed.The puzzle is that at small scales the data fits the theoretical model very nicely, but at larger scales the signal from the cosmic microwave background is much weaker than expected. Efstathiou is looking for answers: "Can we find a theoretical explanation that links together the different phenomena that we have seen, the different little discrepancies, with inflationary theory? That's where there's the potential for a paradigm shift, because at the moment there's no obvious theoretical explanation that links together these anomalies that we have seen. But if you found a theory that links phenomena that were previously unrelated, then that's a pointer to new physics." It appears that the audacious Planck mission really will shed new light on the dawn of time.

euronews business planet - Micro-credit brings organic growth in Ireland
 
03:03
http://www.euronews.com/ Business Planet has been to Dublin. The third country after Greece and Portugal to need an international financial bailout, it is forecast Ireland will come out of recession this year. A major problem for small and medium companies is still access to credit. But euronews met one entrepreneur who found a way around that. The adventure began for Darren Grant in 2008. He had decided to leave behind his senior management job in computing to open a supermarket dealing in 100 per cent organic goods on the main street of Blackrock in Dublin. Even though the recession was taking hold, he believed in his project. He invested all of his savings, but was still short of funds to fit-out his shop, buy his first stock and pay his staff. So Darren looked at European micro-credit - up to 25,000 euros for new business employing up to 10 people. It is money allocated through intermediaries for the European Investment Fund. "I went to Google and I typed in EU Funding for small businesses and what came up was a website, where I simply clicked into and found out there was funding available for EU businesses, which is great," Darren told us. "This led me to the Irish microfinance website first step, and I applied to get 25,000 euros, to start the business." Darren now employs eight people - four of them full-time - to run the shop and his internet site which has become a runaway success. Last year it turned over 800,000 euros and won various accolades, including the best internet site for a small business in Ireland in 2010 and 2011. "The website was the best investment for the company, and the return we have got ahead of the investment will be maybe 25 times what we have invested," Darren explained. "It's fantatstic. It's won multiple awards. And we've competed - a little small shop and a micro-finance startup has competed with major major multi-nationals in this field. We have become leader in the website field." The site offers 2,000 organic products - soon to become 3,000. Darren now has a registered trademark all over Europe, and soon hopes to expand his online activity into the UK. "The keys to success are to be able to secure finance for expansion, to be able to keep our website dynamic and innovative, and to expand our products within Europe," he said.

India's Mars Orbiter Mission, the country's first interplanetary foray, blasts off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota, India. India launched its first spacecraft 'Mangalyaan' to Mars on Tuesday (November 2), a test of the emerging Asian nation's low-cost technology that could help it join a small club of space agencies to have explored the red planet. The 4.5 billion-rupee (USD 73 million) Mars Orbiter Mission blasted off from the southeastern coast on Tuesday afternoon. If successful, the satellite will take about 300 days to reach Mars and will search for methane in the Martian atmosphere. Only the United States, Europe, and Russia have so far successfully sent probes that have orbited or landed on Mars. euronews: the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe! http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a euronews is available in 14 languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU In English: Website: http://www.euronews.com/news Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/euronews.fans Twitter: http://twitter.com/euronews Google+: http://google.com/+euronews VKontakte: http://vk.com/en.euronews

euronews Life - Thailand's spiritual soul
 
05:19
http://www.euronews.com/ Buddhism is an essential part of Thai culture which has retained its significance in the modern world. In the second edition of Thai Life we are looking at the fourth largest religion in the world. We'll also get to experience one of the most important dates in the Buddhist calendar: Vishaka Bucha day. The monotonous chanting of the monks sets the spiritual tone of the festival. The whole of Thailand comes together to celebrate the birth, enlightenment and the passing of Buddha. However, this year's festivities are extra special: it's the 2,600th anniversary of Buddha's enlightenment and Thailand is getting ready to host visiting Buddhists from all over the world. Kim McSweeney is an Australian Buddhist devotee: "It's beautiful to see everybody in national dress, coming together in a cultural way, it's always in a spiritual way. And it's wonderful to see other traditions, there are other monks here. I have just met some Cambodian monks and there are Chinese ones as well and all the different nationalities are represented because we all come together with our hearts for Buddha." Buddha - the awakened one - is not worshipped as a saint, but as a role model and as the religion has no God, its keystones are personal and spiritual development. Followers are encouraged to learn and apply Buddha's practices to daily life, as Ajahn Jayasaro explains: "Buddhism is a different kind of religion to the ones that we are familiar with in the West. If the religious traditions of the West could be characterised as belief systems, Buddhism is a education system. So it's a whole different idea of what a religion is or what it should be." For Chantri Srivichai, Visakha Bucha day is a precious time where the entire family comes together. With her sisters in law in tow, Chantri sets off to market to prepare offerings for the monks. She talks to euronews about the food she plans to make: "We offer alms to the monks. For fresh food we have chicken wings. We also have Thai sweets and the traditional Thai soup tom yum goong." Passed from generation to generation, the art of folding the Lotus flower is an integral part of the preparations. Representing purity, the Lotus is an important Buddhist symbol. Up since 4am, Chantri and her family head to the temple in their best dress as hundreds of followers line the path with tables of offerings, anxiously awaiting the monks arrival from the golden mountain. "I feel very happy, very delighted. We've all come here as a family to attend the ceremony and to honour Buddha. I feel so good, we're all healthy and we think of our ancestors and share our happiness with them." Chantri Srivichai said. It is a symbiotic relationship. The people honour the monks with physical support, like food and money, while the monks offer spiritual support based on meditation. This is at the heart of Buddhism and is fast becoming popular throughout the world. Ajahn Jayasaro, a Monk describes how daily life can be detrimental to reaching enlightenment: "Our life is such a busy, distracted life that we loose contact with the inner world. When you let go of that addiction to thought and activity and allow the mind to settle down often there are insights just popping up in your mind which were there already but you couldn't really communicate with them or couldn't really hear them." Banjob Bannayuki, a Buddhist expert gives his views on how to meditate: "It's not difficult, it's easy: meditation starts with keeping mindfulness. You can practice meditation everywhere, every time when you walk you meditate you keep mindfulness on your walking." The highlight of the celebrations is "Wien Tien", a candle-lit procession where devotees walk three times around the temple whilst meditating, their right side facing Buddha, to cleanse their souls.

euronews Life - Thailand: sun, sea and a booming business economy
 
05:12
http://www.euronews.com/ Thailand evokes images of endless, sandy beaches but there is a lot more to this South East Asian country. In the first edition of our four part series 'Thai Life', we take a look at the kingdom's business spirit. To find out why Thailand is such a popular investment market, euronews headed to its capital, Bangkok. With a population of around 10 million, it can sometimes feel like all the city's inhabitants are on the streets at once. Bangkok is at the heart of the Thai economy with 90% of the country's export trade taking place in the capital. The Asian Kingdom is also becoming an evermore attractive production location for foreign businesses, which are attracted by its stable infrastructure and tax incentives. Stiebel Eltron, a housing technology manufacturer is one of the 500 German companies to start up operations in Thailand. It learned early on that doing business 'Thai style' requires a great deal of cultural awareness and tact; something the company's Export Manager, Holger Palla knows all too well: "In Germany you can raise your voice (literally bang your fist on the table) and speak more openly and direct. Maybe even a little too loud and direct. In Thailand you can't do that at all. You have to be careful not to embarrass other people -- they shouldn't lose face so you have to show respect and proceed more subtly." Yupa Tassri, General Manager at Siebel Eltron takes care of the staff's needs, bridging any cultural divides: "In Thai most people respect Buddha, so the Germans will never understand how we respect him. "My main challenge is to mix and match between Thai and German mindsets, to make sure that they understand each other and work together in harmony." Teamwork plays a vital role, ensuring the working day runs smoothly, as Roland Hoehn, Asian Pacific Director at Siebel Eltron explains: "Thai's like to work in groups. They want to have Sanuuk once in a while. Sanuuk is probably best translated as fun and is simply a part of the Thai culture. If they aren't having fun, they leave the company. So harmony and fun are important." For foreign companies, the benefits of working in Thailand, seem to outweigh concerns voiced by some businesses over bureaucracy and a lack of qualified labour. John Svengren, the Executive Director of the European Asean Business Centre believes the key to doing business successfully in Thailand is taking the time to build bonds with colleagues: "Relationships mean a lot more for one thing. You don't come to an Asian country and do business on the first day. You need to have relationships, particularly if you're in joint venture operations with Thai partnerships. It can take years to develop confidence and trust." This is not only true for the industrial sector but also for tourism, another important area for foreign investors, especially European. This year alone, more than 20 million visitors are expected, making up around 6% of the nation's total economy. The tourism industry has been trying to attract new target groups and green tourism is becoming increasingly popular. At Karon beach in Phuket, a Swiss run hotel was the first on the island to receive the Green Globe certificate for sustainability. The hotel's General Manager at the Mövenpick resort, Hansreudi Frutiger talks to euronews about his accomplishment: "We began with the Green Globe one year ago. We wanted to explain to our Thai employees what this means to us; that we want to help the world stay as it was and is. We've a small garden where we grow tomatoes and cucumbers alongside various Thai herbs and spices which our chefs use in our kitchen's dishes." Thailand is a country of contrast. While it is finding success putting itself on the world business map - tradition and heritage remain an integral part of life.

euronews business planet - Rising to new challenges
 
03:20
http://www.euronews.com/ This edition of Business Planet takes us to Timisoara, one of Romania's three major economic hubs, a very dynamic region virtually devoid of unemployment. Entrepreneurs in the region are not short of ideas on how to develop their businesses. The Prospero bakery is an example. Founded in 1991, the company has experienced massive growth. It now employs 180 people, and turnover last year reached five million euros. Four years ago, the company invested heavily in a brand new building, state-of-the-art machines and six new delivery lorries. To get the funds needed to develop her business, Adina Bugescu, whose parents founded the bakery, turned to the Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. Its consultants are members of the Enterprise Europe Network. They worked on a business plan together and Adina secured a European grant worth 750,000 euros. "This helped us increase our productivity and make sure we complied with European standards. Between the time the investment was made and today, turnover has increased by 25 percent and we have hired 60 people," says Adina Bugescu, co-owner of the bakery. For more than 20 years, the Bugescu family's bakery has been making bread that is 100 percent natural, without preservatives or premixes - a choice that apparently appeals to customers. Adina wants to develop the business further. "Today, we have 14 bakeries. The aim is to open up more, to increase productivity and production. And we have another dream: we want to start a baking school," she told us. The Enterprise Europe Network, which has representatives all over Europe and in the rest of the world, helps SMEs like Adina's get European funding and access new markets through seminars and missions. Octavian Culda, the EEN consultant in Timisoara, told euronews: "We take part in three or four missions abroad each year through the European Enterprise Network - throughout the European Union, and in the past two years, in the United States as well." Adina has this advice for anyone seeking to expand their business successfully: "The keys to success are: to clearly identify what you need funding for before seeking it. Then you need to find a consultant who understands the philosophy of your business."

http://www.euronews.com/ A French company is growing fast as it exploits a technology to 'milk' precious products from plants. "We produce molecules from plants that otherwise would be very difficult to produce, and these molecules are very useful for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals," says the CEO of Plant Advanced Technologies Jean-Paul Fèvre. Plant Advanced Technologies, based in near Nancy, is a pioneer of what it calls 'plant milking technology'. The plants are grown without soil, and their roots are then 'milked' of precious molecules. The firm exploits the benefits of substances found within rare, protected and slow-growing plants. "The plants produce active substances in their roots naturally that help them to defend themselves against aggressors in their environment. We dip the roots into a solvent, which allows the roots to become more permeable, and bring out these high-value molecules," says PAT's reserach director Frédéric Bourgaud. PAT is further refining its know-how as part of an EU-wide research project. The scientists have identified a range of rare substances for use in medicine. "This is a Mexican plant that produces a molecule that's useful in treating osteoperosis in women. There we have two plants that naturally produce an anti-inflammatory, and there we have a carnivorous plant that should help us to produce molecules that are useful in treating certain cancers and a rare genetic disorder," explains Bourgaud. Swing open the store room doors and you will find hundreds of litres of natural anti-oxydants ready for delivery. Feeding the plants a lean diet of nutrients means they grow bigger roots, and produce more valuable molecules. "In a relatively limited amount of space we're able to produce many kilogrammes, many tens of kilogrammes of substances, which is totally in line with what the market demands," says Bourgaud. The test greenhouse is stacked with racks of unusual plants being grown and tested to see how they could be 'milked' for new medicines. There is plenty of scope for growth: "A great many molecules are yet to be discovered from rare and protected plants, or from those that grow slowly, so it's useful to have a procedure that does not destroy the plant itself," says Jean-Paul Fèvre.

Costa Concordia finally clear of Giglio, destined for dismemberment
 
02:22
The Costa Concordia's last trip is to a scrap heap. The Italian island of Giglio, on the peninsula's Tuscan thigh, will finally have a clear view of Corsica once again. Two and a half times the tonnage of the Titanic, the hulk is making its way to Genoa, tugged up the coast under escort, after the largest salvage operation of a ship in history. Popular salvage master Nick Sloane, a South African, wasn't taking anything for granted -- though, if he's nervous, he hid it well. Sloane said: "We ...
