  • Michigan to Offer Prize in fight Against Invasive Asian Harp

    Faced with the threat that Asian carp could enter the Great Lakes, Michigan is turning to the public for new ideas and plans to offer a prize to whoever comes up with a way to stop the voracious fish. Michigan's global search challenge comes after the U.S. government and others have spent hundreds of millions searching for a solution to stop the carp from entering the world's largest freshwater system. If they aren't stopped, officials fear the aggressive fish will crowd out prize native fish and hamper recreational boating in large sections of the lakes, which stretch from Minnesota, Wisconsin...
  • Per Dr. Jerome Corsi Israel Has Nominated President Trump For The Nobel Peace Prize

    Figured I would pass this on to Free Republic. Top Intelligence sources are telling Dr. Jerome Corsi Israel has nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is primarily because President Trump wants to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and the complete destruction of ISIS that is happening now quietly behind the scenes. Rest assure the media will freak out if this is true. Hopefully we will have more details soon.
  • Popcorn-like fossils provide evidence of environmental impacts on species numbers

    Science Daily ^ | 6/10/2016 | University of Southampton
    The number of species that can exist on Earth depends on how the environment changes, according to new research led by the University of Southampton. By analysing the fossil record of microscopic aquatic creatures called planktonic foraminifera, whose fossil remains now resemble miniaturised popcorn and date back millions of years, the research provided the first statistical evidence that environmental changes put a cap on species richness. Dr Ezard added: "We used mathematical models to reveal how environmental changes influence both the rate of diversification among species and how many species can co-exist at once. Our results suggest that the world...

    This is great news! I hope Mr. Trump wins, and for peace. He said anyone like ISIS attacks us, we will "beat the **** out of them". The reason there is so much un-peace is because of people like Obama who wants to get down on his knees and pray to those who attack us instead of beating the **** out of them. This only brings more un-peace, and more die. Certainly we have not had more peace under Obama, but Trump will bring Peace with Justice. Go Trump! I am certainly not one to discuss who is a great...

    Former Secretary of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee Geir Lundestad reportedly notes in his new book that the body “didn't achieve what it had hoped for” when it gave Barack Obama the benefit of the doubt and conferred the prestigious award on him in 2009. While it is quite rare for Nobel officials to openly discuss the nuts and bolts of their secretive committee, the former director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute has apparently owned up in his memoir ‘Secretary of Peace’, to be released on Thursday, that the panel had expected the award to somewhat challenge Obama, who received...
  • Who Did Obama Compete With For His Nobel Prize?

    Who Did Obama Compete With For His Nobel Prize? The Nobel Peace Prize 2007 was awarded jointly to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr. "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change". I recently read an article about the death of 98-year-old Irena Sendler, someone I had never heard of. The article alleged that Irena Sendler lost the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore. Irena Sendler, a candidate for the 2007 Nobel...
  • Humans Could Walk On Water (Ig Nobel Prize)

    Ig Nobel Prize in physics goes to research about walking on water on the moon.Every year in December, the Swedish Academy of Sciences hands out Nobel Prizes for the most important discoveries in science. A few months before, in less grand circumstances, the magazine Annals of Improbable Research The Ig Nobels are given to research that ‘first makes people laugh, and then makes them think’. The categories vary year to year but mostly cover science and engineering, with peace and literature occasionally thrown in, too. Previous awards have been handed out to projects like minimizing the risk of colonoscopy...

    Middle East: With the formal determination that Syria has used chemical weapons, the stage is set for U.S. intervention, with Hezbollah and Iran on the other side. How´s that Arab Spring working out, Mr. President? Following our less-than-stellar attempts at regime change in Egypt and Libya — aiding in the ouster of Egypt´s Hosni Mubarak and the overthrow and death of Moammar Gadhafi — the administration, even by its own elastic standards, has decided it can no longer afford to kick the Syrian can down the road. Perhaps it just needs a good war to grab the headlines

    WASHINGTON -- Shinya Yamanaka, a scientist at Kyoto University, loved stem-cell research. But he didn't want to destroy embryos. So he figured out a way around the problem. In a paper published five years ago in Cell, Yamanaka and six colleagues showed how "induced pluripotent stem cells" could be derived from adult cells and potentially substituted, in research and therapy, for embryonic stem cells. This week, that discovery earned him a Nobel Prize, shared with British scientist John Gurdon. But the prize announcement and much of the media coverage missed half the story. Yamanaka's venture wasn't just an experiment. It...

    John B. Gurdon of the U.K. and Shinya Yamanaka of Japan shared this year's Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their work in so-called cellular reprogramming, which has unleashed a wave of advances in everything from cloning to the possible treatment of diseases using stem cells.... It also allows scientists to create human embryonic stem cells without having to destroy human embryos, sidestepping an approach that has long been fraught with ethical controversies. Most important, perhaps, it has significantly advanced the prospect of using a patient's own mature cells to create fresh tissue and treat disease.

    In August 1994, I was invited to have dinner with House Minority Whip Newt Gingrich. At that time, I was a senior engineer working for Martin Marietta Astronautics in Denver, where I had been responsible for inventing a new plan called “Mars Direct.” By radically simplifying the mission architecture and making bold use of Martian resources starting on the very first mission, this concept offered the potential to reduce the cost and schedule of a human Mars-exploration program. NASA analysis had confirmed these advantages, and word had leaked to Newsweek, which featured it as the cover story of its July...

    Earlier this month at a charity hockey event in Faribault, Minn., 11-year-old Nate Smith made an 89-foot shot from center ice to win $50,000. The problem was that Nate's twin brother, Nick, was the one who purchased the winning raffle ticket. When the time came to attempt the shot, Nick was outside of the arena unaware he had won, so in stepped Nate to score the miraculous goal. After the boys' father, Pat, came forward the next day and admitted to event organizers about the twins' switch, Odds on Promotions, the company that insured the event, held up awarding the...

    SYDNEY, Australia (JTA) -- The awarding of a peace prize to the American Jewish intellectual Noam Chomsky, a strident critic of Israel and of American foreign policy, is drawing criticism in Australia. The citation for this year’s Sydney Peace Prize, announced Wednesday, says that Chomsky was chosen “for inspiring the convictions of millions about a common humanity and for unfailing moral courage.” “The choice of Noam Chomsky continues a pattern of Sydney Peace Prize recipients who have demonstrated questionable credentials as legitimate peace-makers,” said Vic Alhadeff, chief executive of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies. “It does nothing...

    I'm not an Egypt watcher, but it appears the Muslim Brotherhood is continuing plans to isolate the Arabian Peninsula. Iran's move to seal the western approaches didn't pan out thanks to both Bush '41 (Somalia operation) and Bush '43 (US, France, and initially Germany in Djibouti). The MB's real objective, in my opinion, is closing the Suez Canal. This, with Iranian control of the Strait of Hormuz, will effectively put our economy in bottom of the tank thanks to Obama's prior spending sprees. Our capability to militarily act is extremely limited, even if the administration had the will to do...

    Ever heard of the Confucius Peace Prize? Neither did its recipient, who didn't bother to show up at the awards ceremony. Today (12/10) in Oslo, the Nobel Peace Prize Committee presented the gold medal of the Peace Prize to an empty chair - whereupon dignitaries and official representatives of dozens of countries across the globe gave the empty chair a standing ovation. For the first time since 1936, a Nobel Peace Laureate was not allowed by his country to attend, nor was any relative. Liu Xiaobo, founder of the human rights movement Charter 08, is in prison and prevented from...

    Reclusive Russian mathematician Grigory Perelman, who MOSCOW (AFP) – Reclusive Russian mathematician Grigory Perelman, who shot to global fame after claiming to solve the seemingly intractable Poincare conjecture, has refused another prize for the achievement. The Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI) said Thursday that Perelman informed the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based research center that he would not accept its million-dollar prize. "I have turned down (the award)," Perelman told the Interfax news agency by telephone. "The main reason is disagreement with the organised mathematics community. I do not like their decisions, I consider them unfair." "I think that the contribution of American mathematician...

    In light of the 2010 Winter Olympics; many have trained and anticipated this present week for years. These have worked extremely hard. All of the hard work and effort has paid off and they are ready to compete. These have subjected their bodies under strict disciple with one goal and one prize in their vision, the gold medal. How much more should Almighty God's children (John 1:12) run the race which is before them for eternal glory and a eternal prize at Christ's Judgment Seat for the saints (2 Cor 3:10-20). The victory is gained when a person puts his...
