”Shuji paid a price for his dedication to volleyball. His university entrance exam results were not good enough to win him a place at a prestigious school. Shuji's dream was to become a theoretical physicist or a mathematician. But his teacher told him that he could not make a living from physics - he had better choose a course like engineering so that he could find a job.”
Biographical on Shuji Nakamura at Nobelprize.org: http://goo.gl/e5QkTm

Nakamura shared the 2014 #NobelPrize in Physics with Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano for inventing blue LEDs.

*2015 Theme for Mole Day: May the MOLES Be With You
Mole Day*
 - an unofficial holiday celebrated among chemists, chemistry students and chemistry enthusiasts on October 23, between 6:02 AM and 6:02 PM, making the date 6:02 10/23 in the American style of writing dates. The time and date are derived from Avogadro's number, which is approximately 6.02×10 ^ 23, defining the number of particles (atoms or molecules) in one mole of substance, one of the seven base SI units.
For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the molar mass of the molecule. For example, the water molecule has an molar mass of 18, therefore one mole of water weighs 18 grams

Not familiar with this year’s Literature Laureate Svetlana Alexievich’s work?
Here’s a taster of her work:

Children's Chorus

Soldiers came for us in cars. I thought the war had started. They were saying these things: "deactivation," "isotopes." One soldier was chasing after a cat. The dosimeter was working on the cat like an automatic: click, click. A boy and a girl were chasing the cat, too. The boy was all right, but the girl kept crying, "I won't give him up!" She was yelling: "Run away, run little girl!" But the soldier had a big plastic bag.

Excerpt from Voices from Chernobyl, by Svetlana Alexievich, translated by Keith Gessen.
