In an email to a local Kansas paper, Koch spokesperson Melissa Cohlmia explained “we are not experts on climate change.”
If Republicans win big, Democrats will hang their heads and cuss the Koch brothers.
But Obama is now running against Karl Rove and the Koch brothers rather than running on his record.
At the January Koch conference in the Palm Springs area, Abboud led a discussion that drew many wealthy donors, say two attendees.
“All of these facts taken together can lead to only one conclusion,” Koch said.
Then came the experimental evidence of Davaine and Koch, who demonstrated the development of bacteria from spores.
When Vienna refused its assent, Koch resigned his commission.
Dr. Koch commenced by remarking that what was required for the prevention of cholera was a scientific basis.
He and Mr. Koch went to the top of the mountain of Poè near Lundu.
The only way is to spring it upon the profession as a great triumph: just as Koch did his cure for tuberculosis.
Koch (kôk, kôKH), Robert. 1843-1910.
German bacteriologist who discovered the cholera bacillus and the bacterial cause of anthrax. He won a 1905 Nobel Prize for developing tuberculin.
German bacteriologist who demonstrated that specific diseases are caused by specific microorganisms. He identified the bacilli that cause anthrax, tuberculosis, and cholera, and he showed that fleas and rats are responsible for transmission of the bubonic plague and that the tsetse fly is responsible for transmitting sleeping sickness. Koch won the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 1905.
Our Living Language : Robert Koch is deservedly famous for his discovery of the bacteria that cause tuberculosis and many other diseases, and his illumination of the life cycle of the anthrax bacillus in 1876 showed how a particular microorganism caused a particular disease, definitively establishing the modern germ theory of disease. What Koch is less well-known for is his equally important and pioneering work in laboratory methods, especially in culture techniques and microscopy. Some attempts before Koch had already been made to grow microorganisms outside the body, but it was he who, through ingenious experiments, devised cheap, reliable, and duplicable techniques for growing pure cultures of single species of bacteria in the lab. Except for the lid, he invented the petri dish and a jellylike culture medium for it (the lid was later added by one of his assistants, Julius Petri). For years a passionate amateur photographer, Koch soon applied that interest to his lab work: he devised methods for preparing and culturing bacteria in thin layers on glass slides so that they could be photographed under a microscope. He invented ways of staining bacterial cultures to make poorly visible bacteria stand out under magnification. All of these innovations allowed the life cycles of bacteria to be studied and documented for the first time—an advance that bore its first and perhaps most dramatic fruit in Koch's demonstration of the life cycle of the anthrax bacillus, which was accompanied by dramatic photographs that took the scientific world by storm.
