You know what, it might be time to say adios sadly to these awards as they are not bringing the positive recognition that they used to. This case was filed here in the good old OC where I live. Maybe he was first? Maybe it’s a better idea to give these award in the humankind area and stay out of the science end of it. I sad myself the other award given was weird in my opinion as they basically gave it to an algorithm, same one used by dating sites. I am not discounting any of their work as it is all good but maybe what we are seeing here is the complexities of the Nobel Institute to decipher some of this. Heck I do this blog and I have a difficult time too making sure I have everything correct and I’m sure I mess up too. This is what I said in October about the other Nobel prize, so my question was this was “using” an algorithm and not even creating it and I could use it too but I may not have been able to accomplish this residency matching system.
Nobel Prize for Residency Match System Not Much Different Than What You Get From a Dating Site These Days– Flow Sheets And the Dangers of An “Algo Duped” Naïve Society That Gets Sucked In Too Often
A little satire here on my post back in October, being dating sites use this algorithm where’s the award for Match.com or any dating site using it. I recognized it right away when I read the award. So maybe giving awards to “great humanitarian acts of people” could be worth a discussion? I thought the Clinton Foundation or the Clinton’s themselves would have been great recipients and add Bill Gates to that list for example too. Yes it sounds like the science and technology end of this is getting over the heads of the judges maybe due to the complex world we live in. They could always get some new judges too. BD
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 6, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Rongxiang Xu, the founder of "human body regenerative restoration science" and a renowned life scientist and medical scientist, has filed a lawsuit today against The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet, a Swedish corporation, aka, Nobelforsamlingen. The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet is a body which awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The suit filed in Superior Court of the State of California, Orange County Central Justice Center cites Libel and unfair competition.
Dr. Xu, one of the leading scientists in the world, discovered in 1984 the existence of "regenerative cell" which was confirmed to be keratin-19 positive stem cell after 2000 (US patent 6991813B2), during his study of burn treatments that has benefited 20 million burn victims in 73 countries, claims his good reputation in the community was defamed by a statement published by defendants, The Nobel Assembly, causing damages to Dr. Xu by their conduct. The suit alleges The Nobel Assembly has been successful in garnering media attention for their Nobel Prize announcements in essentially every major news organizations and publications world-wide, proving they can affect the perception of an individual by misreporting information.
"My main priority for filing this suit was to clarify the Academy's mistaken and misleading statements for the preservation of humanity and future generations, life science research should not desecrate the nature of human life," stated Dr. Xu.
Dr. Xu believes, and alleges the Statement made by The Nobel Assembly is false as he was the scientist who made the discovery a decade earlier, therefore defaming his exemplary reputation.
On October 8, 2012, The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2012 was awarded jointly to Sir John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka "for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent," which was covered extensively in the media.
