    They live in different places, work at different universities and dedicate their careers to studying different topics. But there's one thing at least four of this year's US Nobel Prize laureates share. They're immigrants. That's in keeping with a long-running trend, according to a recent report from the National Foundation for American Policy. Immigrants have won 38% of the Nobel Prizes awarded to Americans in chemistry, medicine and physics since 2000, and 35% of the Nobel Prizes awarded to Americans in those fields since 1901, the foundation says. This year, French-born Esther Duflo and Indian-born Abhijit Banerjee -- both professors...
  • Sorry, Greta: The Norwegian Nobel committee had a reputation to recover

    Well, surprise, surprise: The Norwegian Nobel committee has decided to award the 2019 peace prize to someone who at least worked on promoting actual .... peace. Here's the johnny-on-the-spot Guardian, which sets such store by such awards: "The Norwegian Nobel committee has decided to award the Nobel peace prize for 2019 to Ethiopian prime minister Abiy Ahmed’s efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation and for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighbouring Eritrea." Apparently, they'd been ripping each others' heads off and he put a stop to it. In some purviews, that's called making peace. Which stands in...

    The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was jointly awarded to three scientists William G. Kaelin Jr., Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza for their work on how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability. The Nobel Assembly announced the prize at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm on Monday. Their work established the genetic mechanisms that allow cells to respond to changes in oxygen levels. The findings have implications for treating a variety of diseases, including cancer, anemia, heart attacks and strokes. Oxygen is the lifeblood of living organisms, said Dr. George Daley, dean of Harvard Medical...
  • Belarusian Nobel Laureate Says HBO Series Has 'Completely Changed Perception' Of Chernobyl

    Belarus's Nobel laureate Svetlana Alexievich rolled her eyes when the creators of Chernobyl approached her for permission to use material from her book "Voices From Chernobyl" for the hit HBO miniseries. "I told my agent, 'Galya, they're going to make another film...' I was far from convinced. The only thing that convinced me, maybe, was the fee..." However..."It really impressed me. It is a very strong film. There is something there in the aesthetics that touches the modern consciousness. There is a dose of fear. There is reasoning. There is beauty. That is something that has always worried me about...

    Today is not just Friday, it’s the day of an international #ClimateStrike thanks to a sixteen-year-old Swedish teenager. Today all over the world, high school students are skipping school to participate in #YouthStrike4Climate, an extension of #FridaysforFuture. Greta Thunberg, the leader of the youthful climate change alarmists, has now been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. “We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict, and refugees,” Norwegian lawmaker Freddy André Øvstegård told Norwegian news outlet VG. “Greta Thunberg has launched a mass movement which I...

    This past week I asked a friend at the White House about how the president was holding up against the onslaught of media attacks. "They didn't even deliver a glancing blow," was the response. It wasn't for a lack of trying. Has any president in modern times been the target of such a Blitzkrieg of orchestrated assaults -- from John McCain's funeral turned anti-Trump scrum to Bob Woodward's discredited new book trashing the president to the media infatuation with the anonymous New York Times op-ed by a disgruntled federal employee who hates President Trump. Here we go again. Trump is...

    Financial Times ^ | July 2017 | Guy Chazan
    Svetlana Alexievichs magnum opus Second-Hand Time (first published in Russian in 2013), is an attempt to understand where Putin came from and why he has such a hold on the Russian people. In her Nobel lecture of December 2015, Alexievich described Russia as a space of total amnesia. The way she puts it, things now are getting even worse. Lawmakers say we should put Gorbachev on trial, a Solzhenitsyn monument has been vandalised, and theyre putting up more and more statues to Stalin, she says. But its not Putin telling people to do that the initiative is coming from...

    Former President Jimmy Carter believes that President Donald Trump has a legitimate case to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize if he brokers a denuclearization deal with North Korea. Carter won the award in 2002. If President Trump is successful in getting a peace treaty thats acceptable to both sides with North Korea, I think he certainly ought to be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize, said Carter to Politico Magazines Off Message Podcast. I think it would be a worthy and a momentous accomplishment that no previous president has been able to realize. Trump is set to meet with...

    The Norwegian police said Tuesday they had closed an investigation into Donald Trump's fake Nobel Peace Prize nomination after failing to identify the person behind it. The Norwegian Nobel Institute filed a police report earlier this year after receiving a seemingly fraudulent nomination of the US president for the prestigious prize. Suspicion mounted that the nomination was submitted by a person suspected of committing identity fraud to appear legitimate, as only a select group of individuals -- including members of parliament and government, former laureates and some university professors -- are entitled to propose names.

It wouldn't have happened without Trump," Graham said Friday. The fact that the North Korean and the South Korean president met and they vowed to end the war. What happened? Donald Trump convinced...

    If the Nobel Peace Prize really is about "peace," guess who wins the next one hands down.  Even the lefties are admitting it. This must give the Nobel committee the shivers, forced to admit that Donald Trump of all people brought peace to the Korean peninsula after 65 years.  Yes, that Donald Trump, the one they have been hating for all these years.  And the war Trump had been rising to dangerous levels when he stopped it. The line pointing to Trump for this is obvious enough, too.  When Trump made highly risky, seemingly crazy tweets declaring the North Korean dictator Little Rocket...

    Yesh Atid chairman and former Finance Minister Yair Lapid urged former President Barack Obama to return the Nobel Peace Prize he was awarded in 2009, if an investigative report regarding his administrations behavior towards the Hezbollah terror group is correct. Speaking with party members on Monday, Lapid responded to a report released by Politico early Monday morning which claims that the Obama administration systematically shielded the Hezbollah terrorist organization from prosecution, blunting the efforts of the Drug Enforcement Administration to crack-down on Hezbollahs global drug trade and money laundering rackets. If the report is correct, Lapid told party members at...

    Irena Sendler Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98) Warsaw, Poland During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive. Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids. Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants...

    The State Department doled out $13 million in grants for longtime friend and Clinton Foundation donor Muhammad Yunus during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, according to federal records. The grants were provided in 18 separate transactions from the U.S. Agency for International Development to the Bangladesh-based Grameen bank, according to a Sunday evening report from the Daily Caller News Foundation, for which Yunus served as a founding board member. Groups associated with Yunus through business relationships received an additional $11 million. Yunus oversaw the distribution of microcredit loans to impoverished borrowers for the bank for over 30 years....
