Leonard Paul Kaine was recently nominated for the second time as a Laureate for the Nobel Peace Prize. Mr. Kaine has selflessly dedicated his time and his efforts as a non-paid volunteer for more than 42 years in the pursuit of two primary life goals: world peace and improving the lives and the opportunities of people the world over. Mr. Kaine believes that through the Golden Rule of treating people the way you want to be treated, we take a significant step closer to world peace. http://www.goldenrulesociey.org

B0yle on strange science.
"Last, but not least, there are the Ig Nobel awards. These come with little cash, but much cachet, and reward those research projects that 'first make people laugh, and then make them think'" — Nature

Dr. Adam Riess jointly led the study with Brian Schmidt in 1998 for the High-z Supernova Search Team which first reported evidence that the Universe's expansion rate is now accelerating through monitoring of Type 1a Supernovas.
Riess will share his insights into the nature of the universe, such as the existence of dark matter and his breakthroughs along the way. The discovery of the accelerating universe was named 'Breakthrough of the Year' by Science Magazine in 1998, and Riess was jointly awarded the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics along with Schmidt and Perlmutter for their groundbreaking work.

Inspiration of the Day
“Live today the way you want to be remembered tomorrow.”
- Dillon Burroughs
So Now What?
There’s an old saying: “If you want to know how to live your life, think about what you’d like people to say about you after you die and live backwards.”
Let me give you an example.
Alfred Nobel invented dynamite in 1867. He did so because he thought his invention would actually end warfare. He wrote that, “The day when two army corps can annihilate each other in one second, all civilized nations, it is to be hoped, will recoil from war and discharge their troops.”
His ideas were not unlike the massive military build up during the Cold War between The Soviet Union and the United States from the 1960’s to 1980’s – preemptive deterrence.
However, life has a way of throwing curve balls, and in 1888, when Alfred’s brother Ludvig died, a French newspaper mistakenly ran an obituary for Alfred, in which they called him “the merchant of death.”
Alfred was so horrified by that label that he decided to change his destiny. After he died, he left 94% of his wealth to form a foundation. This foundation established 5 honors with annual awards presented to people who have produced the greatest benefit for humanity...

SATURDAY MORNING WAKE UP CALL
Topic for the Day: Civil Rights 50 Years Later
Today, in Washington DC, a nationwide coalition of civil rights groups is marching on the United States Capitol to call for legislation against discrimination by police and torture in the wake of the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s post-9/11 torture program.
Fifty years ago -- in 1964 -- Dr. Martin Luther King was in n Oslo on December 10 for presentation of the Nobel Peace Award by Norway's King Olav. Dr. King accepted the Award not for himself, but as the representative of the Freedom Movement as a whole, saying in his Acceptance Speech: "I come as a trustee, for in the depths of my heart I am aware that this prize is much more than an honor to me personally... [It is]...not for myself alone but for those devotees of nonviolence who have moved so courageously against the ramparts of racial injustice and who in the process have acquired a new estimate of their own human worth. Many of them are young and cultured. Others are middle aged and middle class. The majority are poor and untutored. But they are all united in the quiet conviction that it is better to suffer in dignity than to accept segregation in humiliation. These are the real heroes of the freedom struggle: they are the noble people for whom I accept the Nobel Peace Prize."
In writing his new book "Last Stand: Ted Turner's Quest to Save a Troubled Planet," environmental journalist Todd Wilkinson ventured deeper into the inner space of Ted Turner than any other before him. That inner space reveals a Turner who has largely been unknown to most people. Last Stand has won national critical acclaim and has been widely adopted as an essential reading for conservation organizations, universities, government policy makers, businesses, and book clubs across the country. But as many say, "Last Stand" actually reads like an adventure story.
Todd, who started his career nearly 30 years ago as a violent crime reporter in Chicago, first met Ted in 1992 in Montana where Turner has his flagship ranch, the Flying D, and where Todd lives today. For the book Todd interviewed a number of noteworthy individuals including four Nobel Peace Prize laureates, Jane Fonda, Sen. Sam Nunn and many other major figures. Todd has been on a national tour promoting Last Stand and he joins us today from the wild American West.
