    5 hrs ago | Slashdot

    Taco Cowboy writes: A story about a 102-year old lady doing her PhD thesis defense is not that common, but when the thesis defense was delayed by a whopping 77 years , that gotta raise some eyebrows. Ingeborg Syllm-Rapoport studied diphtheria at the University of Hamburg in Germany and in 1938, the 25-year old Protestant-raised, German-born Ingeborg submitted for her doctorate thesis defense.

  19. Stuart Newman - The Virosphere And Non-Linear EvolutionRead the original story w/Photo

    Yesterday | Scoop

    It was Stuart Newman who was the first of the Altenberg 16 scientists I discussed developments with following the Extended Synthesis symposium in 2008 at Konrad Lorenz Institute, a meeting I was barred from attending for having gotten out in front of the event with a series of stories and an e-book -- showcased on these pages -- in which I interviewed evolutionary thinkers who had also not been invited to Altenberg. And over the last half dozen or so years, I've had many rich, off-the-record phone conversations with Stuart Newman about everything from ancient art to deep politics to origin of life and life in general.
