2 Americans, a German win Nobel Prize for chemistry
(CNN) -- "Two Americans and a German won the Nobel Prize in chemistry this year for their work on optical microscopy that has opened up our understanding of molecules by allowing us to see how they work close up.
The winners are Eric Betzig, Stefan W. Hell and William E. Moerner, the Nobel committee in Sweden announced Wednesday.
Back in 1873, science believed it had reached a limit in how much more of a detailed picture a microscope could provide. At the time, microscopist Ernst Abbe said the maximum resolution had been attained.
This year's winners proved that contention wrong.
"Due to their achievements, the optical microscope can now peer into the nanoworld," the committee said.
Physics Nobel Prize goes to scientists who perfected LED light
The importance can't be overemphasized....
Hell, of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, and German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, both in Germany, developed a way to use two laser beams to make individual molecules glow ..."
His inventions changed the world and our daily lives in many areas.
As a prelude to understanding what the Hunky is, we congratulate the three people who just won the Nobel for chemistry. Not to begrudge this 2014 win for the invention that won the Nobel, we might be more inclined to review the history of the man who actually invented the same 56 years ago in many, not one color, and who didn't win the Nobel; a man whom btw, CHANGED THE WORLD for everyone by co-inventing the laser, and also inventing the LED, the light emitting diode.
WIKI: In addition to introducing the III-V alloy LED, Holonyak holds 41 patents. His other inventions include the red-light semiconductor laser, usually called the laser diode (used in CD and DVD players and cell phones) and the shorted emitter p-n-p-n switch (used in light dimmers and power tools).
In 2006, the American Institute of Physics decided on the five most important papers in each of its journals since it was founded 75 years ago. Two of these five papers, in the journal Applied Physics Letters, were co-authored by Holonyak. The first one, coauthored with S. F. Bevacqua in 1962, announced the creation of the first visible-light LED. The second, co-authored primarily with Milton Feng in 2005, announced the creation of a transistor laser that can operate at room temperatures. Holonyak predicted that his LEDs would replace the incandescent light bulb of Thomas Edison in the February 1963 issue of Reader's Digest, and as LEDs improve in quality and efficiency they are gradually replacing incandescents as the bulb of choice.
LOOK again. 1963! And he was correct. LED lights will replace incandescent, and Thos Edison, within the next five years!

New iPhone Is All Hype, The HTC is MUCH better

They are what the industry expected all along from Apple: no more, no surprises, with decidedly underwhelming results. Apple is now copying Samsung, not the other way around!
Sidebar: To be released soon, the iWatch has a small screen at a time most people are interested in large screen mobile phones and TVs!
Smart watches represent a sideways move – most people will stay uninterested, being tethered to two devices, rather than one. Sales are depressing for the other makers. HTC alone decided, wisely, to not even pursue a smart watch. But HTC is hardly a competitor for Apple, just garnering <5% of the market. Yet GOOGLE and HTC are major collaborators, so we should not underestimate a potential champion, as you’ll see next.

Soccer Star Lionel Massi Prosecuted in Spain – for being pro-Israel!
Andrew Benjamin | October 7 2014
"Messi happens to be not only a fair-minded person who published pictures of Gaza children on his FACEBOOK page urging Israel to stop the violence, but fair game too, for his even-handedness in the pit of Jewhate that is today’s Barcelona.
Being even-handed is not good enough in today’s Spain that expelled its Jews in 1492, causing the Jews to flee and find what is now the United States of America (see the first synagogue in Jamaica, hundreds of years older than the U.S. itself!)
The Barcelona prosecutor’s case is specious and meant to silence Messi and his family. That, antisemitism, and no more, is at the root of this case."
