What is the significant contribution of Alexander fleming in the field of Biology? - -GoOd morning everyone'!!!:-D ** Just answer if you want to:-)
Gavin McInnes is right, outside of physical tasks with a common goal, teamwork is just terrible. Theory of relativity, not a team, in fact the team that followed created the atom bomb. Marie Curie, not a team. Penicillin, Alexander Fleming, not a team. Steve Jobs was right, the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do.
Day 289 God Will Cause Your Gift To Promote You Proverbs 17:8 8A present is a precious stone in the eyes of its possessor; wherever he turns, he prospers. When we see something moldy, we throw it away. But when Alexander Fleming saw his culture dishes contaminated with mold, he discovered penicillin. You see, he had a gift that prospered him. Joseph, a Hebrew slave in Egypt, had nothing except his gift of interpreting dreams. But look at what that gift did for him. It prospered him. He interpreted Pharaoh’s dream and became the most powerful man in Egypt after Pharaoh. (Genesis 41) “But Pastor Prince, what if I don’t have any gift?” My friend, don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t have any gift. God has given each person a gift that can open doors of opportunities and bring in great blessings. Maybe you are just not aware of that gift you have inside you, or perhaps it has profited you nothing thus far as you have not found out how best to use it. You need to take your gift and ask God for ...
If only. To be honest if it does happen it will be more likely Robert Burns or Alexander Fleming that will be in them.

***STORY-OF-THE-WEEK*** I WANT TO REPAY YOU! His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death. The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved. "I want to repay you," said the nobleman. " You saved my son's life." "No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel. "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked. "Yes," the farmer replied proudly. "I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my ow ...

Quality of a good researcher...! To become a good researcher you should have aptitude in that domain and also "Madness" is required as Ishfaq Ahmed mentioned in his Novel "Mann Chalay ka Soda".once I met with Alexander Fleming (Who discover penicillin) and asked him how you discover it ?? He answered me.Mr. Ishfaq Research or to discover is like a "Qalandar Dance" coz that person looked like a mad but actually his is not mad.! So for a good researcher.his passion,involvement, love with subject,madness and aptitude is important tool..otherwise you could be a MS or PhD degree holder but not researcher.!

Sources for antibiotics can be found in some very strange places. A lot of the medications that we depend upon today were discovered in some distinctly yucky places. That tradition goes back to 1928, when Alexander Fleming discovered the very first antibiotic, penicillin; bacteria-killing mold...

The life saving drug Pencillin was actually discovered by chance by Sir Alexander Fleming in the early 1900's. This was found to be very effective and it was the first antibiotic used, especially in World War II to save lives. But in some people there were side effects which lead to death. Jesus came into this world to save lives and it was by no accident. It was foretold by God right in the beginning in the garden of Eden (Gen 3:15) and at the right time 2000 years later He came into this world (Gal 4:4). He shed His blood on the cross for the forgiveness of all sins (Col 1:14) - "the most effective life saving drug" there ever was and will be with no adverse reactions whatsoever but only favourable results ! Even if peoples lives are saved because of Pencillin, they will still did a physical death someday and face eternity in *** without Jesus. But when peoples lives are saved through receiving Jesus as Lord and forgiveness of sins through His blood, He will live eternally in Heaven even though he die . ...
Just In: On this day March11 In 1955 Sir Alexander Fleming who discovered antibiotics Penicillin [from the mould Penicillium notatum] , a revolution in medical field, died of heart attack. His discovery of penicillin changed the world of modern medicine by introducing the age of useful antibiotics; penicillin has saved, and is still saving, millions of people around the world. For the discovery of Penicillin he was awareded with Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1945 alongwith duo Florey & Chain. And in 1999, Time magazine named Fleming one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century for his discovery of penicillin. May your soul rest in peace sir. We salute you.

Alexander Fleming: "Father of Antiobiotics" credited with the clinical discovery of Penicillin.
The discovery of penicillin is attributed to Alexander Fleming, who discovered that the mold from bread had antibiotic properties. However, treating infections with moldy food or soil is a traditional folk remedy that dates back to ancient Egypt.
penicillin and a sovereign God So I woke up with penicillin on my mind. I knew that it was not all that long ago that penicillin had been developed / discovered as a major antibiotic. So I researched its history. An English scientist, Sir Alexander Fleming noticed an accident with an experiment in 1928. A dish of bacteria had become contaminated with some kind of mold and that mold was dissolving some of the bacteria. After he grew the mold in a pure culture he found that it was effective to kill many kinds of bacteria. By 1941, as World War II was ramping up, scientists from England and the U.S. put their heads together to find a way to produce penicillin on a mass scale. They worked in a lab located in Peoria, Illinois and needed to find some natural mold that was effective in producing penicillin. After a world-wide search they found the best mold producer to come from a moldy cantaloupe in a Peoria market! Production cost went from priceless to only $20 per dose by July 1943 and about 50 cent ...

Antibiotics and Sinusitis An antibiotic is a soluble substance derived from a mold or bacterium that inhibits the growth of other microorganisms. The first antibiotic was Penicillin, discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1929, but it was not until World War II that the effectiveness of antibiotics was acknowledged, and large-scale fermentation processes were developed for their production. Acute sinusitis is one of many medical disorders that can be caused by a bacterial infection. However, it is important to remember that colds (viral infections), allergies, and environmental irritants, which are more common than bacterial sinusitis, can also cause sinus problems. Antibiotics are effective only against sinus infections caused by a bacterial infection. The following symptoms may indicate the presence of a bacterial infection in your sinuses: Pain in your cheeks or upper back teeth A lot of bright yellow or green drainage from your nose for more than 10 days No relief from decongestants, and/or Symptoms that ...

Alexander Fleming the world renowned discoverer of Penesilan
Long time ago , there was a person belonging to a rich family and his car was stuck in a pit. He tried his best to pull out the car but failed. A poor peasant was watching and he helped the person and the car was pulled out from the pit. The next day the father of the rich person gave the peasant some money for his help. But the farmer refused to accept the money, saying it was his duty to help him. An idea struck the mind of the rich man. He asked the peasant if he could take care of his son and provide him all amenities for good education. The farmer thought for a while and accepted the offer. The old man took good care of the poor child and sent him for best education. The child was brilliant and became a doctor. One day the only child of the rich man was diagnosed with some disease and there was no hope of his survival. The doctor ( earlier the poor child) tried his best to save the son of the rich man. He invented penicillin which saved the life of the his patient, The doctor was Alexander Fleming w ...

ASCOMYCETE OF THE 20TH CENTURY - PENICILLIUM, the source of the antibiotic penicillin. Discovered by accident by Alexander Fleming in 1928 - it spread mold-like overnight over an open Petri Dish of the bacterium Staphylococcus. The particular species used today as penicillin is Penicillium chrysogenum. This discovery has been, arguably, the most beneficial of all discoveries in the 20th Century. The Ascos rule!

On this day in 1928, Alexander Fleming announced of the discovery of penicillin. Born in Ayrshire in 1881, Fleming qualified from medical school in 1906 after which he became a bacteriologist. In 1928, Fleming was studying staphylococci bacteria at St Mary's Hospital in London, having returned there after service in the Medical Corps during the war. He noticed that an accidental growth of mould, identified as Penicillium notatum, inhibited growth of the bacteria. He named it penicillin. Although he was aware of the significance of his find, he was unable to produce a large enough quantity of penicillin to use on humans as he did not have the means to isolate the active compound. 12 years later, Chain and Florey developed a production method, spurred on by the need for antibacterial drugs created by World War II. Fleming was knighted in 1944, and he shared the Nobel Prize with Chain and Florey in 1945.
Today in 1928 it was officially announced that Alexander Fleming had discovered the drug penicillin, and in 1955 the actor James Dean died
Rational thought precludes taking risks. Reason suggests that we carefully weigh all options and avoid stepping onto any path whose outcome cannot be clearly seen.However, if the Wright Brothers, Alexander Fleming, and Guglielmo Marconi had followed this approach, we might travel only on slow boats, trains and cars. We might succumb to bacterial infections, and communicate only by means of slow signals sent down copper wires. Those pioneers acted riskily, expending time, money, and health. ~Daniel Lapin

God does not locate lazy people. There are people who sit doing nothing but thinking they will meet a man who who will bequeath them with their wealth. Alexander Fleming who was given scholarship by Winston Churchill was not an idle boy. What he was doing led him to the man who helped him. Some people just think David was picked from the bush, nowhere and made king. David was a creative boy shepherd. He did not know that each time he played the harp and anointing of peace fell on someone that people were watching. Little did he know that each time he came home with the carcass of the lion or bear that he imprinted on the mind of silent scouts that he was potentially great. By the time David was brought to serve king Saul, he had not yet slain Goliath. The case that arose was that King Saul became mentally ill. When it was being discussed in King Saul’s cabinet about searching out the right manpower that could solve the health challenge note what somebody who had encountered said, Some of Saul' ...
Germany's Fraunhofer Gesellschaft patented and first developed the MP3 in 1989. In 1826, Niépce, of France, produced the first photograph, which he called a heliograph. In 1979, Bell Telephone Laboratories introduced the phones, which were nearly as large and heavy as a school textbook. In 1928, Alexander Fleming discovered the first antibiotic, penicillin, which he grew in his lab using mold and fungi. Without antibiotics, infections like strep throat could be deadly. Ladislao and Georg Biró, of Hungary, introduced the ballpoint pen in 1938. The first sentence spoken over the telephone, by Alexander Graham Bell to his assistant Thomas Watson, was, "Mr. Watson, come here, I want you." Wilhelm Roentgen, a German physicist, discovered X rays in 1895. For this discovery, Roentgen was awarded the first-ever Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901. J. K. Rowling has certainly set records of her own. She’s Great Britain’s richest woman in the entertainment industry. In 1999, she sold 23 million books, more than an ...

I BET YOU DON'T KNOW THIS. SOMETHING TO CHANGE YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD! “This is a legendary story about a farmer who discovered a young boy stuck in a mud bog somewhere in the United Kingdom. After much struggle, the farmer was able to free the lad, although for a moment the farmer felt that he, too, would sink too deeply into the mud to survive. Later that evening, a lord stopped by the farmer’s humble shanty, identifying himself as the rescued boy’s father and offering to pay him a generous reward for his effort. When the farmer refused, the lord saw that the farmer had a son and insisted that he pay the boy’s way to college. After he graduated with a degree in science, the young man – Alexander Fleming – went on to discover penicillin. Ironically, the young man who had been rescued from the bog, now a young adult, came down with pneumonia. Thanks to Fleming’s discovery – penicillin – his life was saved. The young man’s name: Sir Winston Churchill.”
When I was living in Portland (2004-2005), I "discovered" (not in the way that Alexander Fleming discovered Penicillin, Jonas Salk discovered a cure for polio or even like Cristoforo Colombo discovered the Americas)... Anyway, I discovered a Japanese film series about a blind masseuse named Zatoichi. In addition to being a masseuse, he is a swordsman without equal. The movies are more or less morality plays, much like our old westerns. I recently started re-watching them. BTW, there are more Zatoichi movies than there are Bond movies and the same actor played him in all but one. That one was made 10 years ago, 14 years after the previous one. Look them up. You might enjoy them, too.
HEROES OF DOOM AS ROLE MODELS BY WASEEM ALTAF Those portrayed as national heroes’ impact our lives. We are enthralled by them. We tend to idealize them; regardless of their integrity and behavior we often become enamored with their power and status and allow ourselves to become an extension of their values and beliefs. As we tend to emulate them, we also pass the phenomenon of hero adoration down to our children. Great people like, William Shakespeare, Florence Nightingale, Albert Einstein, Dr. Abdus Salam, Mozart and Alexander Fleming were all great heroes and did influence the lives of countless people. The way these heroes appear in folklore, popular literature, text books etc shows their bravery and courage, devotion and compassion, selflessness and humility, hard work and brilliance. It also sheds light as to how they contributed towards the greater good of the society and the influence they cast on the development of culture and civilization. In text books they are built up as role models for chil ...

On This Day In History: 1799 Income tax was introduced into Britain by William Pitt the Younger, to raise funds for the Napoleonic War. The rate was two shillings in the pound. 1854 The first free lending Library opened, on Marylebone Road, London. 1888 The London Financial Guide was launched. It became The Financial Times on 13th February. 1909 Ernest Shackleton, leading the Nimrod Expedition to the South Pole, planted the British flag 112 miles from the South Pole, the furthest anyone had ever reached at that time. 1929 Alexander Fleming successfully treated his assistant Stuart Craddick’s infection with a penicillin broth, at St Mary’s, Paddington 1972 British miners began their first strike since 1926, campaigning for improved pay and conditions. A season of power cuts followed. ^Adam

God, the Bible, and Science by Travis L Quertermous From The Reminder, December 18, 2011 One often hears of the supposed conflict between science and the Bible. We are told by many scientists and philosophers that one simply cannot accept the conclusions of modern science and the miracles of the Bible. One must choose one or the other—it must be either science or faith. But if one considers the who’s who of science, the great pioneers and inventors who literally founded modern science, we find that they were all devout believers in God, Jesus Christ, and the Bible. Moreover, they were all outspoken creationists. These scientists include men like Kepler, Galileo, Copernicus, Sir Isaac Newton, Rene Descartes, Sir Francis Bacon, Robert Boyle, Antoine Lavosier, Anton Van Leewoenhoek, Blaise Pascal, Edward Jenner, Michael Faraday, James Clerk Maxwell, Gregor Mendel, Louis Pasteur, Louis Agassiz, Lord Kelvin, the Wright Brothers, Enrico Marconi, Alexander Fleming, and Werner Von Braun, among many, many othe ...

IN AFRICA 2000 YEARS AGO In 2010 evidence was found in Africa that Human use of antibiotics began not 80 years ago, but nearly 2,000 years ago along the banks of the Nile River. Chemical analysis of the bones of ancient Suda nese mummies who lived nearly 2000 years ago shows they were ingesting the antibiotic tetracycline on a regular basis, likely from a special brew of beer. The find is the strongest evidence yet that antibiotics were previously discovered by humans before Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin in 1928 This evidence was gathered from large amounts of tetracycline (Antibiotics) embedded in the bones of ancient African mummies. Tested from the ancient Sudanese population, which lived in the Nubian kingdom (present day Sudan) between 250 A.D. and 550 A.D. The evidence was first reported and published in Science in 1980 , It was met with alot of skepticism (Bassett et al 1980). In the new study in 2010, bone samples were dissolved and tetracycline was extracted from them, clearly showing t ...

"Penicillin cures, but makes people happy." ---Alexander Fleming SALUD!!!
-I'm one day late but I'm very thankful for Alexander Fleming, who developed penicillin. More importantly, I'm thankful that just a few doses brought giggles and squeals back to our house. So many children require more.
I am feeling so much better. Not totally well. but I can eat, and this is amazing. thank you Alexander Fleming.
Yeah why the [insert rude word here] should we have to learn about Alexander Fleming! I would rather watch Kingsley videos!
chillin like a villan, maybe listen to Bob Dylan. Think about how cool Alexander Fleming was for inventing penicillin. The usual.
Penicilin cures,but wine makes people happy-alexander fleming
I'd like to thank Alexander Fleming for the discovery of penicillin and Florey and Chain for the development of penicillin. Thanks man

Mistake is not an excuse:To begin your purpose in life is the biggest decision you have to make. When God came to Moses after he was gone for 40 years, all His advice was for Moses to take the first step in recovering his purpose. Mistakes are made in life but almost every mistake has been the best event of life. Someone once said, "There are no mistakes in life. There are only lessons" I know many people who cannot get up from their ten years failure because they hate to remember the mistake they made ten years ago. The sinky was invented by Richard Jones when the tension spring he was working with fell on the floor and the spring kept boucing from place to place. That was mistake that became the slinky. Corn flakes wouldn't have been in existence if it was not the big mistake of the kellogg's brothres,John and Will. They were trying to trying to make a pot of boiled grain and accidentally left the pot on the stove for a few days. And the mixture turned moldy though what remained was dry and thick. Throu ...
Modern medicine must feel left out. Alexander Fleming invented Penicillin, not God.
Day 1: I am thankful that Joseph Lister, Alexander Fleming, and Howard Florey decided to work with mold, bacteria, urine, and penicillin, leading to those amazing antibiotics that are slowly curing me of zombie plague.
I forget that everyone in Alexander Fleming can see me dancing naked in my room. :/ oops Hope you all enjoyed the show!!

Have you guys heard of the November 30 days of Thankfulness? Each day in your own way you come up with something you're thankful for. I'm definitely planning on doing this in my own house (we have a good life and need to be reminded of this) and Pinterest is a great resource for some creative ways to do it.Here's mine today! Very THANKFUL for Alexander Fleming, the Major Founder of Antibiotics. Without you I would still feel like crap from this sinus infection, have NO voice (better but not 100% yet) and feel like I'm dying when I breathe.
Right, completely different type of antibiotics started. These better work, Alexander Fleming. Being dead is no excuse.
Told my teacher Ian and Alexander Fleming were brothers & both discovered penicillin. Teacher: "I watch films too". 😁
Used to confuse Ian Fleming with Alexander Fleming. I answered the former's name during my Botany exam in 4th grade instead of the latter.

In our mad dash to get what we think we want in life, sadly, we often overlook what we give up in order to get it. You know, that one thing we all take for granted.Father Time. Its that Time you could spend with love ones (Mother Theresa, Ghandi), Time Writing a book (Jesus), Time to create a new instrument (Antonio Stradivarius, Gaetano Vinaccia), Time to learn to create beautiful works of art (Mozart, Picasso, Davinci), Time to find a cure for any disease,pick one (Alexander Fleming did, Penicillin), Time to Build an electric charger from pure natural resources (Tesla). What ever your God gifted talent is.that my friends is what 99.9% of your time, is sacrificed. The question in the end, you know what end I'm talking about, will always be.Was it worth it?

If this message reached you, please take a moment to read, as I feel it's important. If you or someone you know is struggling with something, please DON'T QUIT and encourage them not to quit! QUITTING IS EASY!!! Sticking it out and working at it isn't always easy!Anything GOOD is not always EASY!!! Instead, keep on trying, one step at a time. Imagine what the world would be like if Thomas Edison, Alexander Fleming (discovered penicillin), Hellen Keller, Neil Armstrong, Beethoven or Steve Jobs quit?? (Folks the list can grow quick here!!!) SO the next time a family member, friend, an acquaintance or even a stranger you see is struggling.(IF you truly care about them), PLEASE ENCOURAGE THEM NOT TO QUIT! BUT TO KEEP ON GOING!

info and meaning of my sons name~ Alexander: Defender of Men Alexander appears in the Bible as the one who helps Jesus bear the cross on the journey to Calvary. Alexander the Great was an ancient Macedon king. Greece was unified by his father, Philip II, but Alexander went on to extend the Macedon empire eastwards to the periphery of modern India. There have also been two kings of Scotland named Alexander, and three emperors of Russia. Eight popes have been named Alexander. It is also the name of the first king of Yugoslavia and the current pretender to the throne. Alexander Graham Bell was the inventor of the telephone, and Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin. The name was also borne by poet Alexander Pope, Russian author Alexander Pushkin, Russian composer Alexander Scriabin and former US Secretary of State under President Reagan, Alexander Haig.

I think today is the anniversary of Alexander Fleming discovering penicillin. He was working on stuff (I don't do messy things, so can't remember what it was) and some snot dropped off his nose and killed some bacteria (true) and it encouraged him to search for a wonder drug that would kill germs but not harm people - snot clearly had potential and it gave him a bit of a lift to keep searching. After a vacation he returned to find mold and so on in all the Petri Dishes he hadn't cleaned before he went (his assistant had been transferred, so there wasn't anybody to do the grunt work in his lab) Anyway, not being a chemist he didn't really know how to isolate whatever it was that was killing the germs, so he got help from two other chaps (Florey and Chain) and they worked out it was penicillium something. And years later they shared the Nobel Prize. Also interesting, a young French army doctor in 1897 realised that Arab stable boys used mold from damp leather saddles to cure their itches and he identifie ...
