Al Gore was awarded this. Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Theresa, and the United States of America President, Barack Obama, was awarded this. This… this, is the Noble Prize, and three other intelligent scientists have received this prestige honor today, on Wednesday, October 9th, 2013.
As all may know, and if you have not known, the Noble Prize is rewarded for outstanding achievement in all, if not most, areas of humanity. Martin Luther King Jr, Mother Theresa- peace. Albert Einstein- physics. Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird- literature. All sorts of topics covered, all sorts of topics rewarded. Today, three scientists: Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt, and Arieh Warshel- chemistry.
Karplus, Levitt, and Warshel had created a means of performing chemistry through technology. They had developed a system for analyzing chemical processes on a computer, increasing the production of new medicines and discoveries. This has created an advanced way for other scientists and researchers to design new drugs and solar cells.

This is great news, for the technological advances have and will benefit future generations to come. New medicines created will not only result with curing sickness, but it will also generate new discoveries for curing current non treatable diseases.
“What one man can invent, another can discover.”
— Arthur Conan Doyle
Quite innovative, right? These advances…. innovations are incredible. These three men have found a need in society, and they created an exciting solution to resolve the need. It is through these innovations that shape our society. Today, from the many lectures I have received, one important meaning stood out to me when my English teacher reaffirmed that we are the leaders of the nation. We need to stand out by creating and helping others to find the ultimate purpose in life. Life is not about focusing on what you want to please. Rather, it is about finding what pleases you… what you are skilled in, and sharing that skill with the rest of the world. And when you share your skill(s), you will please others. Naturally please others through being yourself and letting the world know what you have to offer.
Karplus, Levitt, and Warshel are innovators, and they greatly deserve such a prestige honor.
So, life lesson? Check! Find your purpose and share your skills as innovators do. If all else fails, have the determination to continue. Do not give up, and one day, you, yourself, will become an innovator for the world.
See you readers next time!
