Posts Tagged ‘Prize’

Many people used to hear this set-phrase at least once in their life time. No one really wondered much about the meaning of it saying it constantly in everyday life and repeating it after reporters on TV and using this phrase as one of their own. A Noble prize though is a subject matter of many scientists who strive for making a great achievement. Taking into account all the facts surrounding a Nobel Prize and the ceremony of granting it one has to keep in mind the following: 1. The ceremony of bestowing the Nobel Prize to various scientists and the organization itself first appeared in the year of 1897 after the death of Alfred Nobel the founder of the organization. It has been approved officially after the second attempt having Alfred’s name upon it as the founder of the organization. Many physicians, mathematicians and other science relating workers give credits to Alfred Nobel though many years passed after his death. 2. Over 186 million U.S. dollars were invested in the project. Most of the sum was collected by Alfred Nobel himself. Not exactly rich and noble in his own way he managed to have collected the sum needed to support the organization in his life time. Trying to level up with Sweden being a neighboring country that spends up to 4 percent of its annual GDP for scientific purposes Norway unfortunately fails to do it still. 3. Nobel Prize also includes in itself Nobel Peace Prize in politics. These awards are generally given to politicians who have managed to settle conflicts and save millions of people from deaths and war causing disagreements. To some politicians it is a life-time honor and purpose of their whole life. Ceremonies generally include a dinner, an announcement, medals’ presenting and congratulating those who have won them.

Floyd Mayweather is not shy with his money. The undefeated boxer has spent years living lavishly, earning millions of dollars, and using that money to live the best life possible. All along the way, Mayweather has purchased some very expensive items and things that people could only dream about.

Not only did Mayweather spend millions on a sports car, but it is deemed one of the most expensive cars in the world. Mayweather loves to gift loved ones and that’s likely what he did when he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on Hermes Alligator bags. Mayweather loves to travel around in style and that’s exactly what he did when he ordered the Mercedes party bus for him and his crew. When he’s not boxing, Mayweather is living it up a huge mansion that he has dubbed “The Big Boy Mansion”. One of the most expensive pieces of paper that Mayweather owns is his own contract which he played hundreds of thousands of dollars to get. When you’re as rich and famous as Mayweather, you have the ability to purchase and maintain your own private jet. Over a million dollars has also been poured onto his wrist in the form of an extremely expensive Hublot watch. More jewelry has also been purchased by Mayweather, including over million worth to help celebrate the new year. When Mayweather wants to travel, he has the option of visiting his million dollar Miami penthouse. Mayweather also owns two extremely expensive Bugatti vehicles. Watch to see these expensive purchases and how Mayweather spends his millions of dollars!

WHY THE WEATHER CHANNEL DECIDED TO TAKE ON CLIMATE SKEPTICS

WHY THE WEATHER CHANNEL DECIDED TO TAKE ON CLIMATE SKEPTICS

The network has been celebrated for trumpeting climate-change evidence and the ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico. According to weather.com’s editor-in-chief, its direction isn’t political.
What has happened to The Weather Channel? After 35 years of reliably bringing Americans local forecasts, extreme weather coverage, and the heroics of Jim Cantore, TWC and its affiliated website (technically owned by IBM) has captured media attention in recent months for taking the White House and/or mainstream media outlets to task for playing down, inaccurately reporting, or leaving out major climate stories.*
Take The Weather Channel segment last December, when meteorologist Kait Parker devoted nearly two minutes to debunking a Breitbart News climate change-denial article that erroneously used a clip from the channel’s coverage of La Niña. Or weather.com’s decision to plaster its homepage with articles about climate change on the day President Donald Trump announced the United States was pulling out of the Paris Agreement.
TWC’s latest moment in the spotlight came last Friday, when weather.com devoted its homepage to stories about Hurricane Maria; scrawled across the top of the site was the ominous warning: “AMERICA, THIS IS STILL HAPPENING.” The AV Club’s Dan Neilan put it best: “It’s clear The Weather Channel is not fucking around.”
TWC has focused on around-the-clock coverage of weather and climate science for two years now, ever since it began phasing out its “original non-weather entertainment programming.” But with these latest developments, TWC is proving that doesn’t mean it’s now a boring media outlet you turn to when you want to know what to wear in the morning, or how many inches of ice you’ll need to scrape off your windshield. Rather, it’s a crucial source of climate information and reminders about indisputable physical phenomena in an era when even the most basic facts are under attack.
To learn more about weather.com’s editorial direction in 2017, we spoke to the website’s editor-in-chief of nearly five years, Neil Katz. The former executive editor of the Huffington Post and CBSNews.com, Katz now leads an editorial team of 60 people at TWC. He spoke to us on the phone about The Weather Channel’s new vision for its homepage, its relationship to politics, and the big stories its reporters are tracking right now.
To start off, tell me a little bit about what inspired the “AMERICA, THIS IS STILL HAPPENING” headline on Friday and the coverage of Hurricane Maria on the homepage.
This story is a slow-moving, ongoing tragedy, and just because the hurricane-force winds and crashing waves have left Puerto Rico doesn’t mean the story has left. A lot of the news media has moved on—that’s the [news] world we live in, it’s a fast cycle. But we wanted to make very clear to everybody that we should still be paying attention. These are Americans, and, 30 days later, they’re still in trouble. We thought it was [important] to dedicate our page to what they’re going through.
Coverage of the headline on Friday reminded me of the site’s decision to plaster climate-change coverage on the homepage on the day Trump announced the U.S. was pulling out of the Paris Agreement. What was the thinking behind that decision?
We discovered that, if we think about our website almost like a magazine, where the cover of a magazine has real power and when you devote an entire issue of a magazine to an issue, people pay attention. It turns out we can do the same thing with the homepage of weather.com. We don’t do it a lot, and we don’t do any political grandstanding as much as people might have thought that’s what was going on that day, but when there are big issues that matter to America and the world and The Weather Channel, we think it’s worth devoting all of our reporting efforts to an issue and explaining that to the public. The things we care about are obviously breaking weather news and keeping people safe during storms, but also climate change, environmental degradation, and aftermath. We think it’s certainly worth giving an entire day’s worth of coverage to issues that matter.

Food fraud often boils down to politics or semantics. Something labeled parmesan cheese may not come from Parma, for instance. But sometimes food producers try to feed us cheap fillers and other lies. In this episode of Speaking of Chemistry, Sophia Cai explains how scientists, regulators, and food makers are relying on chemistry to make sure consumers get what they pay for.
