    Three scientists have been awarded the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics for their work to understand complex systems such as the Earth's climate. Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann and Giorgio Parisi were announced as the winners at an event in Stockholm. The work by Manabe and Hasselmann led to computer models of the Earth's climate that could predict how global warming would change the environment. The winners will share the prize money of 10 million krona (£842,611). It is very difficult to predict the long-term behaviour of complex physical systems such as our planet's climate. But computer models that can anticipate...

    Quantum physics, invisibility cloaks and a cutting-edge Italian theorist are all tipped to win Tuesday's Nobel Physics Prize, a year after it went to pioneering research on black holes. The prestigious honour, to be announced at 11:45 am (0945 GMT) in Stockholm, is the second Nobel of the season after the medicine prize on Monday went to a US duo David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian for discoveries on receptors for temperature and touch. France's Alain Aspect has been mentioned for years as a potential laureate...Britain's John Pendry would delight physicists and Harry Potter fans alike with a Nobel for what...

    A charity named after Winston Churchill has provoked fury by rebranding itself amid concerns over his views on race. The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust has removed pictures of the wartime leader from its website and is changing its name to the Churchill Fellowship. Volunteers at the trust said it was 'rewriting history'. One told The Sun: 'He was voted, by the people, as the Greatest Briton in a BBC poll in 2002 but is now erased from his own charity by the woke brigade. ... ...Controversies surrounding his rule include whether he could have acted more decisively to prevent the...

    OSLO - Some 329 nominations have been received for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, likely reflecting the profusion of pressing human rights issues around the world, the secretary of the committee which awards the prize said on Monday. Russia’s Alexei Navalny, the World Health Organization and Sweden’s Greta Thunberg are among those nominated for this year’s award. The COVAX programme to secure fair access to COVID-19 vaccines for poor countries is also named, as is U.S. rights activist Stacey Abrams and Belarusian dissidents Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, Maria Kolesnikova and Veronika Tsepkalo. Reporters without Borders, the International Fact-Checking Network and the Committee...

    Voting rights activist Stacey Abrams, whose advocacy is credited with Georgia’s vote for President Joe Biden in the 2020 election and for both of the state’s new Democratic senators in last month’s runoff, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Lars Haltbrekken, a Socialist Party member of Norway’s Parliament, said in a statement Monday that he nominated Abrams because her “work follows in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s footsteps in the fight for equality before the law and for civil rights.” “Abrams’ efforts to complete King’s work are crucial if the United States of America shall succeed in its...
  • Black Lives Matter Movement Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

    Gotta love this quote: "A study by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project, which looked at 7,750 Black Lives Matter demonstrations from four months of last year, found that 93 percent of the protests were mostly peaceful, yet photographs and videos captured by journalists across America depict a different image." So, I guess "mostly" has become as credible as a little bit pregnant? If someone "looked at" so many BLM/DNC sponsored riots and concluded this, I've an idea where their head was when looking.

    The Black Lives Matter movement has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel peace prize for the way its call for systemic change has spread around the world. In his nomination papers, Norwegian MP Petter Eide said the movement had forced countries outside the US to grapple with racism within their own societies. “I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality. Black Lives Matter has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice,” Eide said. “They have had a...

    Is the fourth time the charm? President Trump has received a fourth nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize. The latest nomination falls into the 2021 award process. The 2020 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded and though he was nominated three times, it was not presented to President Trump.The World Food Programme won the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. The program received the award for fighting hunger as a “weapon of war”. Also cited was its “contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas.” The Norwegian Nobel Committee, which presented the award in Oslo on Friday, also described the organization...

    OSLO, Norway - The United Nations’ World Food Program on Friday won the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to combat hunger and food insecurity around the globe. The organization provided assistance to almost 100 million people in 88 countries around the world last year. “I think this is the first time in my life I’ve been without words,” WFP’s head David Beasley told The Associated Press from Niger. “I was just so shocked and surprised.” Beasley said he found out about the award from a WFP media officer who had just been informed by the AP.

    Roger Penrose’s theoretical work demonstrated the objects could form. Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez independently discovered a supermassive one at the center of the Milky Way. Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel, and Andrea Ghez are to be awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics for their theoretical and observational work on black holes, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced on Tuesday. Penrose will receive half the 10 million Swedish krona (roughly $1.1 million) prize; Ghez and Genzel will share the other half. Penrose, of the University of Oxford, helped place the previously idealized concept of a black hole on sound...

    A group of Australian law professors have given President Trump his third Nobel Peace Prize nomination for his commitment to ending foreign wars. "The Trump Doctrine is something extraordinary, as so many things that Donald Trump does," law professor David Flint explained on Sky News. "He is guided by two things, which seem to be absent from so many politicians. He has firstly common sense and he is only guided by a national interest, and therefore, in our circumstances, an interest in the Western alliance. What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided that he...

    This week, President Trump received two nominations for a Nobel Prize. First, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and chairman of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, nominated him for helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. "I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees have," Tybring-Gjedde said. "I expect other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE. This agreement could be a game-changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity." Second, Magnus Jacobson a...

    When Norwegian parliamentarian Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday, the president's critics went into shock on social media. The criticism, of course, did not respond to Tybring-Gjedde's specific citations of Trump's role in brokering a landmark normalization deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, or the conflict between North and South Korea. Trump's critics instead attacked the credibility of Tybring-Gjedde, who serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, and expressed disbelief that Trump could possibly share the same prize...

    US President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination came from right-wing Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde and relates to the ‘historic peace agreement’ between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. ‘For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,’ Tybring-Gjedde said to Fox News. He said in his nomination letter: ‘As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region...
