Guest: Mohammed Amin, Chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum Mohammed Amin has been named one of the hundred most influential Muslims in the UK. Since the 9-11 terror attacks, he’s made it his mission to explain his faith to others. But he’s especially interested in speaking to young Muslims – helping them see the possibilities for their lives. And he does it by telling them the story of his own life. The son of poor immigrants from Pakistan, Amin grew up in the slums of Manchester to become a partner at the prestigious accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.  Visit Mohammed Amin’s website here.

How Fair is the Nobel Prize for Scientists?

15 MINS

Guest: Caroline Wagner, PhD, Professor and Endowed Chair of International Affairs, The Ohio State University The Nobel Prize is the most coveted prize in science. But it’s also a relic from another time, when scientists stayed in their own specialty lane and made discoveries in solitude. Today, international collaboration is the hallmark of big breakthroughs. Take the Nobel Prize in Physics awarded last week: hundreds of people from all around the world, and from a range of fields beyond physics, participated in the detection of gravitational waves, but only three American men received the award. In fact, the Nobel rules don’t allow the award to be split more than three ways. Has science outgrown the Nobel Prize?
