Noel Cunningham on Godparents
On Wednesday Kate & William, the Duchess & Duke of Cambridge will christen their three month old son, Prince George. When William was christened 31 years ago his godparents included the former King Constantine the second of Greece, Princess Alexandra and the Duchess of Westminister although this week’s ceremony will be a different affair, with non royal godparents being chosen for the royal baby.

Medicine in Changing Times
A Canadian doctor says he wants doctors to take a radical re-think on their approach to medicine, focusing on preventing illness rather than treating it. He says that all we need to do is get people to live smart to stay healthy. Dr. Louis Francescutti, gave a keynote speech at a symposium for the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland & spoke to Derek earlier today.
