Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: No Place For Religion At Work
In 21st Century Britain is there any place for religion at work? Not if Judge David Kearsley is to be believed. He ruled yesterday it was right to sack a Christian doctor who’d emailed a prayer to his colleagues. Is that right? Are we too sensitive about people who wear their religion on their sleeves? Or should we keep our beliefs, whatever they may be, to ourselves? And if a colleague feels uncomfortable with our faith, is that our problem? Or theirs? Do we not enjoy freedom of worship in this country?

We’ll take plenty of calls on that before it’s over to Jackie for the rest of today’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Should Schools Teach Zumba?
Should schools teach Zumba dance classes and rollerblading? Yesterday we learned that more than half of girls are put off exercise because PE classes are deemed too masculine and outdated. Would introducing more female-friendly fitness change that? And what about the boys who don’t like P.E.? What should we do for them?

Part 6: Killer Disease Screening: Would You Want To Know?
A new blood test could soon be available that will tell you if you’re likely to get breast cancer in the future. Tests already exist to see whether you’re likely to get other cancers and genetic disorders - but would you really want to take one? If you were told you had a 50% chance of developing something - would you take evasive action? Or adopt a wait and see attitude?

Part 7: Life As A Shorty Vs Short Life
After hearing short people live longer, I want to know if you’d rather be tall or live a longer life. What’s the point in living into old age if you can’t reach the top shelf, go on rollercoasters and are the last to know when it rains?

    Talking about team sports,the ex PE teacher stated there was no where to play after school leaving age. This is in correct, look at England Netball website for details and regions. There are contact details on there to assist any interested women, There is a back to netball campaign running at the moment., So many women and young people play netball. I still play and I'm 58 enjoy the games and the social side with my team. Obviously this PE teacher has no idea about how big netball is these days. It is even televised on Sky sports.

    Teaching Zumba in schools If it gets kids active then it has to be a good idea. I have an idea that will be easy to implement and keep costs to a minimum. If you are interested and want to know more, contact me.
