Re: Nobel Prize Announcements

The Swedes can be a bit contrary at times, they might eventually get around to one for Trump for the arab/Israel thing, pretty fair achievement and he is making an effort to get the US out of foreign conflicts. If he could come out of his war with the US media with all his limbs and a head of hair that would also be a pretty fair achievement.

I think folks like Hawking deserve one for their overall contribution to a particular field of knowledge even if they did not achieve a single great discovery. Recognition of the shoulders of giants thing.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee is responsible for the selection of eligible candidates and the choice of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. The Committee is composed of five members appointed by the Storting (Norwegian parliament). The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded in Oslo, Norway, not in Stockholm, Sweden, where the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature and the Economics Prize are awarded.
How are the Nobel Laureates selected?
There are 318 candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2020, of which 211 are individuals and 107 are organizations.
The statutes of the Nobel Foundation restrict disclosure of information about the nominations, whether publicly or privately, for 50 years. The restriction concerns the nominees and nominators, as well as investigations and opinions related to the award of a prize.

Re: Nobel Prize Announcements

Nobel Peace Prize for 2020 is awarded to the (United Nations) World Food Programme (WFP) for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.

Re: Nobel Prize Announcements

What a great choice.

Glad, an already oversized ego did not get blown out of proportion.
Now wait for the whining....

Re: Nobel Prize Announcements

Q: Should a conspiracy theorist win a Nobel Prize?
A: Yes. They already have a Theory of Everything.
