السودانيون أذهلوا العالم بسلمية ثورتهم وحضاريتها وبسالتها في مواجهة نظام مشحون بثقافة العنف. نقترح ترشيح الثورة السودانية لجائزة نوبل للسلام. يمكن أن تكون الجهة التي ترمز للثورة هي أسر الشهداء باعتبارهم قدموا أعظم الإسهامات وهي أرواح أعزائهم.

This montage is printed on glossy semi-gloss photo paper of high quality, the stamp book being put in an envelope made to measure to protect it; it can thus be fixed without damage to him.

Everything will be slipped into a perforated plastic bag, then into a rigid cardboard envelope.

This will happen at home by registered mail with follow-up, and will be delivered against signature.

For any additional information, I remain of course at your disposal.


Some technical details:
New stamp booklet issued by France in 1985.

Nobel Prize in Physics awarded to pioneering graphene researchers

Last year’s Nobel Prize in Physics may have been somewhat belatedly awarded to the inventors of the CCD, but this year’s prize couldn’t be more timely – it’s just been awarded to Russian-born researchers Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for their “groundbreaking experiments” with graphene. Graphene, as you may well be aware by now, is the thinnest and lightest material there is, and could well pave the way for whole new generation of smaller, better, faster electronics – among a host of other things. What’s more, like so many great inventions, this one also had something of an inauspicious beginning – the researchers kick-started their research just six years ago by peeling some flakes off a chunk of graphite with a piece of Scotch tape.

Higgs boson researchers awarded Nobel Prize for physics
image

Sure, it may have been one of the easier Nobel prizes to call in recent years – at least partly – but that doesn’t make it any less notable. This morning, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert “for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles,” or what’s come to be known as the Higgs boson.

While the prize doesn’t extend to the researchers at CERN who confirmed the existence of the Higgs particle last year, the Nobel committee did cite their work in the announcement, as did Peter Higgs himself, who said in a prepared statement that he “would also like to congratulate all those who have contributed to the discovery of this new particle.” Professor Higgs isn’t offering any more than that statement today, though – one of his Edinburgh University colleagues tells the BBC that “he’s gone on holiday without a phone.”

Stephen Sandy on Seamus Heaney's "Seeing Things"

Yesterday we posted Seamus Heaney’s poem, “Seeing Things.” In 1993, Stephen Sandy reviewed the poem, and the collection it came from, in Salmagundi No. 100. Here’s an excerpt from his piece: 

“The poet does play ball or go fishing but usually only beholds work at some framing distance; handles the worn tools or treads the worn paths of family occupation only to turn from them. The father’s failure at spraying potatoes softens the outlines of paternal omnipotence, but the work seems antiquated, stilted, about to ‘tumble off the world,’ a craft outworn. And the father, himself nearly lost but still 'the undrowned father,’ suffers a sea of change–his true danger–a baptism of “the awareness of failure,” Now he can see eye to eye with his son, a reunion begotten by a common recognition of failing physical strength in the aging man and acceptance of a dying enterprise:

I saw him face to face, he came to me
With his damp footprints out of the river,
And there was nothing between us there
That might not still be happily ever after.

Work is sacred; from his labor the father comes to him, as if walking on water. The occasion of work is not merely the poet’s theme, it is his myth, not just of memory as a means of salvation, but the memory of work as a means to absolution.”

-Excerpted from “Seeing Things: The Visionary Ardor of Seamus Heaney”, a review by Stephen Sandy, originally found in Salmagundi No. 100 (Fall 1993)

The most durable and characteristically generous moment during Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney’s three visits to Skidmore came just before the long-time Salmagundi Magazine contributor was honored in Bernhard Theater as the 2000 Steloff lecturer. The throng that converged to hear him was far too large for the venue so a disappointed crowd  filled the lobby after failing to secure seats. The Irish poet asked if the ceremony leading to his honorary degree could wait a few minutes then appeared on the stairs to give a spontaneous, deeply moving reading to those who were shut out of the main event.  No one who was there will ever forget the power and warmth of that impromptu performance. In the wake of Seamus Heaney’s death, we this week celebrate his life and art by revisiting his Salmagundi poems and essays.

Der IgNobelpreis - Witzige Forschung die zum Denken anregt

Vielen Dank an die mehr als 50.000 Abonnenten die Carstens, Chaus und meine Posts verfolgen :). Es macht sehr viel Spaß für euch, über faszinierende Sachen in der Wissenschaft, zu bloggen. 

Genau soviel Spaß hat wohl auch Marc Abrahams mit seinem Job.

Sei es der Gasmasken-BH, die Frage, wieso Spechte keine Kopfschmerzen bekommen oder die Erkenntnis das Heringe über Furze kommunizieren. Als Erfinder des IgNobelpreis ehrt er diese Forscher.

Der IgNobelpreis ist ein einzigartiger Preis, der an einzigartige Forschung geht die, obwohl sie auf den ersten Blick witzig und lächerlich erscheint, sich mit schwierigen Problemen unserer Gesellschaft beschäftigt.

Für mich war es einer der besten Vorträge während TEDxCERN. Auf jedenfall sehenswert!

What’s the matter with the truth? Everything comes in packages. If it’s in a package, you can bring the devil in the house. People rely on packages. If you will wrap it up, they will take it.

DNA - The Secret of Life 

Was genau ist die DNS? Die BBC hat zum Jubiläum eine schöne Erklärung geliefert, die ihr oben anschauen könnt.

Vor 60 Jahren entdeckten zwei Chaoten die Doppelhelixstruktur der DNS. Francis Crick und James Watson waren beide seit Jahren bekannt dafür, dass sie zwar viel reden konnten, aber schlussendlich wenig lieferten. 

Das änderte sich am 28. Februar 1953 als Francis Crick in einer Bar in Cambridge plötzlich aufsteht und ruft: “We found the Secret of Life!”. Vorausgegangen war eine der wohl spannendsten und auch dramatischsten Entdeckungsgeschichten der modernen Wissenschaft. Eine Geschichte von Rivalität, Verrat und Ungerechtigkeit. Aber auch eine Geschichte von unfassbarem Glück, Intuition und Geschick, die zur wohl wichtigsten Entdeckung des 20. Jahrhunderts geführt hat.

Wer Zeit und Interesse hat, der kann sich die unten verlinkte PBS Doku  anschauen um mehr über diesen Wissenschaftskrimi zu erfahren:

Nicht umsonst ist die DNS heute Standardunterrichtsmaterial an Schulen. Und auch sonst hat diese Entdeckung ein goldenes Zeitalter der Biologie eingeläutet. Man darf gespannt sein, welche Möglichkeiten diese, noch relativ junge Entdeckung der Menschheit ermöglichen wird.

Multi-talented athlete and scientist of space things, Sean P, just broke the internet. Here’s why this video is ‘dope’:

1:04 - flaunting money in front of white people #NEVERNOTBALLIN

1:34 - Johnny Carson stunned by Ps suave retort

1:45 - Pharoahe Monch clearly annoyed with his faux-hawk and/or the fact that you still aren’t aware of the undeniable fact that Sean Price is “that nigga”. And he will have gentle sex with your mother, probably involving bbq sauce or ranch dressing (we all know black people don’t eat blue cheese, shout out to Mr. Chi-City). With the rare exception, because "make your mom suck my dick with blue cheese on my balls.“

2:28 - P WILL ALWAYS POSITIVELY ENCOURAGE THE CHILDREN <3

THANK YOU MULTIPLE NOBEL-PRICE WINNER SEAN PRICE.

Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer’s loneliness, but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day. For a true writer each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. 


-Ernest Hemingway

The prize we were working for was a free, secure and just society where our people might be able to realize their full potential. The honor lay in our endeavor. History had given us the opportunity to give of our best for a cause in which we believed
