Eminent Pan-American researchers visit Falklands for science symposium

THE visit this week of a Pan-American science delegation is a, "phenomenal opportunity for the Falklands to engage in public and science diplomacy by bringing together eminent researchers and members of the media," the British Embassy representative leading the delegation explained to Penguin News this week.

Senior Policy Advisor Science and Innovation at the Embassy in Washington Dr Lindsay Chura who is escorting the 15-strong delegation, said the visit would "significantly raise the profile of the Falklands as a destination that offers wide ranging opportunities for collaborative research in both the physical and natural sciences."


Stanley Sports Association Christmas races - top year for Tim Bonner

racing_tim_bonnerA CONDENSED version of the Christmas 2004 race meeting from three days to two, due to a shortage of race horses, was still declared a hit by both participants and spectators. With light hearted events scattered between the more serious horse racing, interaction was the name of the game and children and adults alike flocked onto the course for sack races, backwards races and keenly competed running races.

Without the usual challenge from the Turner Stable, top jockey Tim Bonner (image - Tim Bonner winning Governor's Cup) truly reigned supreme in 2014. Tim picked up an amazing 15 first places (and an additional win in a trotting race) giving him the title of Champion Jockey.
