Mamma Trees



An inspired choice I feel.

A pleasure to listen to her acceptance speech, the total package she has worked for during the last 30 years, and the way she goes about it... it really strikes a chord with me.
When she said: "I am especially mindful of women and the girl child"....... tear in eye stuff.

Unfortunate and rather stupid remark she made a while back about AIDS nothwithstanding (who's perfect?) it was grand to see the prize go to today.

Nobel prize time once again giving rise to some very entertaining tv programmes. Just watched Nobel Minds on BBB world, it will no doubt be repeated a few times and is well worth watching. Fascinating folks these Nobel prize winners, one of the things that struck me is the seemingly diffident way of smiling they all share. Almost apologetic. Their interaction, the questions they come up with regarding the practical applications and implications of their work in science, it's a rare occasion of television being worth watching.
BBC world have a few more goodies coming up today.

Another highly rewarding medium is Internet TV from Nobel.org. Gives you the chance to watch the various lectures.

I agree about the BBC World programme Nobel Minds, a fascinating programme about fascinating people. BBC World is one of the few channels worth watching in Brazil!

Cheers
