Beli I hope you filled out a MSDS for what they swallowed to win this prize!


No, seriously, you'd have to, wouldn't you?

I'd like to see Bono get this year's Nobel Peace Prize.

I'll be disappointed, but probably not surprised, if he doesn't get it.

Strangely enough, I can also imagine Bono receiving and then politely refusing the Nobel. Using the I'm-not-worthy argument several of you have already posted.

Or only accepting it so he can donate the prize money to DATA or the African Well Fund or similar charities.

Now, I am going to go tonight to Boston (I'm leaving now, from Albany) and to NYC on Friday, and I am going to enjoy my 2nd and 3rd time ever in the GA like I've never enjoyed 2 other u2 shows.
Teta, that's wonderful news! Thanks for letting us know. I had been thinking quite often about you.

Physics prize -
Quote:
The winners are Roy Glauber of Harvard; John Hall of JILA, a joint venture of the University of Colorado and National Institute of Standards and Technology; and Theodor Haensch of Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich.

Professor Glauber, an 80-year-old physics professor at Harvard University, took half the Nobel prize for establishing the basis of quantum optics, which explained the fundamental difference between sources of warm light such as light bulbs and cold lasers.

Professor Hall and Professor Haensch shared the other half for advancing the development of laser-based precision spectroscopy, a field that opens the way to the next generation of GPS navigation and ultra-precise atomic clocks.
Congratulations

Not a Nobel prize but the Australian Life Scientist of the Year was awarded yesterday - to a guy at my work!

Quote:
Professor Harvey Millar as Australian Life Scientist of the Year for 2005. We congratulate Professor Miller, a Professorial Fellow within UWA's Faculty of Life and Physical Sciences on this outstanding personal achievement.

Professor Miller's research focuses on mitochondria in plants - the respiratory organelles responsible for the breakdown of carbohydrates to form energy for germination, growth and flowering of plants. This has major implications for our nderstanding of how plants can maintain growth and development under stress conditions (common to crops) and will aid in improving plant performance.
Yes Prof Millar works in the same school at the University of Western Australia as Prof Marshall who won the Nobel for Medicine a few days ago. :woohoo:

I agree Beli, it's great to see 2 West Aussies getting thr Nobel prize for medicine. I saw some interviews with them, they both have a great sense of humour too!!

I agree Financeguy, they haven't exactly changed the world.
I think too that sometimes celebrities, no matter how much you like them, get too much attention for the little they do for charity. Some other people devote their whole life to helping others and get no recognition. They don't earn millions of dollars in wages each year either.

It would be cool if he won, but if not I won't be too surprised.

Nah, I can't see Bono turning down any award of recognition. His ego thrives on it. I do see him donating the prize money however.
