Under sina dryga sextio år som kördirigent har Eric varit en banbrytare inom både ny och tidig musik, lett Radiokören och Orphei Drängar och dessutom undervisat i stort sett varenda kördirigent i landet. Hans betydelse för det svenska körsoundet kan knappast överskattas och de stående ovationerna redan när denne numera bräcklige 90-åring får när han får hjälp in på podiet i Konserthuset igår var helt på sin plats (såg ett reportage i ABC-nytt).
Grattis Eric och Tack för allt!

The text under the picture reads: "Scientists from teh RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year of 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use."

I've been busy the last few days with stuff popping up all the time but at least I can hint this very nice online game called Blocks With Letters On. Very entertaining, try it (link below).

The three men all contributed to the development of green fluorescent protein, which scientists today use widely to watch processes that were previously invisible, such as the development of nerve cells in the brain or how cancer cells spread.
Shimomura isolated the protein from a jellyfish already in 1962, and discovered its bright green glow when held under ultraviolet light. Chalfie attached the protein to material in cells in Caenorhabditis elegans, a roundworm used as a model in biological research, and made the cells glow. Tsien extended the colour palette beyond green allowing researchers to give various proteins and cells different colours. This enables scientists to follow several different biological processes at the same time.
GFP has also been used in other cases. A few years ago certain Asian fishes was genetically modified with green, red and yellow fluorescent protein and are now being sold commersially. Also pigs has been given GFP to become fluorescent and one of those pigs got a baby pig that was born fluorescent only 6 months ago.
