And The Award Goes too… |LINK|
In the past, said Ron Goetzel, president and CEO of The Health Project, the organization has received as many as 21 applications for the award, but the application process, including the requirement that wellness programs submit statistics and rigorous data analysis, has become so strict that fewer programs want to go through the process.
And the award goes too…
Dr. Aldana, ironically, attempts to insult me here by saying I need to look at the data. I DID look at the data, which is how I learned that while 5,293 biometric indicators improved, 6,397 got worse. He knows his, as does every other member of the awards committee with access to a calculator. Boise taxpayers got snookered and the employees got harmed, according to his own data.
One of the amazing things about working for a global company is seeing the inspiring and innovative ideas and concepts emerging from across the firm. As much as these achievements are celebrated within the company it is always a pleasure to have the hardwork and drive of the teams recognized. Read on to see three great awards that our teams from foodpanda Malaysia, talabat, and foodpanda Philippines received.

The 2021 L. Adrienne Cupples Award for Excellence in Teaching, Research, and Service in Biostatistics, has been awarded to Xihong Lin, professor of biostatistics and coordinating director of the Program in Quantitative Genomics at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Lin is also a professor of statistics at Harvard University. Lin will accept the award and give a presentation, most likely in a virtual format, on April 1.
Omid Kokabee, an Iranian graduate student in physics at the University of Texas at Austin who was imprisoned for refusing to contribute to weapons research in his home country, has been awarded the 2014 Scientific Freedom and Responsibility Award from AAAS.
Kokabee, the first doctoral student to win the award, was honored by AAAS "for his courageous stand and willingness to endure imprisonment rather than violate his moral stance that his scientific expertise not be used for destructive purposes and for his efforts to provide hope and education to fellow prisoners."
"It is uncommon that scientists risk their freedom in defense of the principle of scientific freedom for all scientists, and yet this 32-year old physicist, at the beginning of a promising career, has done just that," the award's selection panel said.
Kokabee has continued his studies from prison, where he has written papers and submitted abstracts to professional meetings. He has also prepared a detailed manuscript that he is attempting to publish in a refereed scientific journal. In September 2013, Kokabee was awarded the American Physical Society's Andrei Sakharov Prize for "his courage in refusing to use his physics knowledge to work on projects that he deemed harmful to humanity, in the face of extreme physical and psychological pressure."
"Honoring Mr. Kokabee as the recipient of the prestigious 2014 Scientific Freedom and Responsibility Award will send a message to his captors and to the world, and provide Mr. Kokabee with moral support during his perilous ordeal," the award selection panel said.
Established in 1980 and approved by the AAAS Board of Directors, the AAAS Scientific Freedom and Responsibility Award honors scientists, engineers, or their organizations for exemplary actions that foster scientific freedom and responsibility. Previous award winners have been recognized for outstanding efforts to protect the public's health, safety, or welfare; to focus public attention on potential impacts of science and technology; to establish new precedents in carrying out social responsibilities; or to defend the professional freedom of scientists and engineers.
The AAAS Scientific Freedom and Responsibility Award will be awarded during the 181st AAAS Annual Meeting in San Jose, Calif., 12-16 February 2015. A ceremony and reception will be held in Room 220C in the San Jose Convention Center on Friday, 13 February at 6:15 p.m.
For instance, the Gruber prize for genetics has been awarded to Joanne Chory of the Salk Institute, and Elliot Meyerowitz of the California Institute of Technology. This prize is one of three awarded by the Yale University-based Gruber Foundation, each worth $500,000, recognising excellence in cosmology, neuroscience and genetics. Chory and Meyerowitz are certainly worthy of such recognition, the difficulty being deciding which of their many achievements to single out. The Gruber foundation recognised Chory for her discovery and characterization of the hormonal signalling mechanisms central to plant growth-regulation in response to light and other environmental signals, and Meyerowitz for pioneering the use of Arabidopsis thaliana in studying plant development.
All plant biologists who have received recognition in this scientific awards season deserve hearty congratulation. It is to be hoped that these may soon result in more plant biologists receiving long overdue invitations to Sweden.
Established in 1992 by Kate Tufts in memory of her husband Kingsley, a shipping executive and poet, the award is given annually in recognition of the work of a mid-career poet. The award includes a cash prize of $100,000.
Martin is the 27th poet to be honored with the award, whose past winners include B.H. Fairchild, Angie Estes, Henri Cole, Thomas Lux, Linda Gregerson, D.A. Powell, Ross Gay, Patricia Smith, and Donnelly (who received the award in 2012 for The Cloud Corporation).
Several years ago, I was trying to figure out how to promote a product my company had brought to market. The more I looked into it, the more I realized nothing existed to highlight the innovation and amazing individuals the Wi-Fi industry has to offer. So, I decided to change that and enlisted the help of some industry veterans, Samuel Clements, Keith R. Parsons, and Jonathan Davis. Four co-founders and two years later, the Wi-Fi Awards just held the inaugural awards ceremony.
The goal of the Wi-Fi Awards is to recognize companies, individuals, and products that demonstrate unique excellence and achievements with extraordinary contributions to the community. The award recipients exemplify the highest standards to promote and expand the wireless industry. Over the past 20 years, wireless networking has transformed the landscape of business, bringing together organizations and connecting people across the globe. During those 20 years, individuals and companies have continued pushing forward and innovating to keep up with technology. From veterans to rookies, and giants to one-man operations, the Wi-Fi Awards recognizes individuals and companies at any stage.
Our desire was to build a program that was primarily selected and voted on by members of the Wi-Fi community. We had an overwhelming response of submissions and participation. Submissions come from a combination of community nominations, or self-submissions. Submissions are then narrowed down to the top five candidates or nominees from each awards category. Once the top five finalists were identified, voting opened to the entire community. The result was an amazing group of finalists, and an extremely difficult decision for voters.
Additionally, the Keith R Parsons Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes an individual for exhibiting exceptional leadership, knowledge, service, and a passion for excellence in the wireless community. Through his/her actions and contributions, the recipient improves the community as a whole. Nominations or submissions are not accepted for this award.
Speaking of money, the media and cultural event that is the awards ceremony itself tends to bring up the subject of friendly wagers about the winners. In this analysis, statisticians Iain Pardoe and Dean K. Simonton apply discrete choice models to predicting the winners.
Among the state awards ESNA received was Chapter of the Year, based on excellence in member recruitment, community service, mentorship of students, political action, and participation in state and national nursing student activities. Other GANS awards follow.

Then, in a celebration of work not-at-all-quiet, Pharis gave his final award for craftsmanship to B.J. Christofferson, who takes saints, symbols, and all manner of iconography, cuts those allegorical images from paper, and creates joyous and mysterious 3D vignettes. Her collage work is at once reverent and irreverent, said Pharis, noting that that balance is no small feat. In addition to making her fabulous art, Christofferson owns Secret Heart Gallery in Maiden Rock, Wisconsin.
