Professor Jocylen Bell Brunell an inspiration - The Catholic Astronomer
This week  Professor Jocylen Bell Brunell  from Northern Ireland was awarded a significent prize. This was for her scientific achievments and inspiring leadership. The annnouncment reminded me of her generous nature. One lecture she gave back in 2005 stands out.  My article is an account of her lecture at Trinity College in Dublin.
At the time I found her talk fascinating and informative, therefore I wanted to share it once again here.  Her lecture gave voice to Stanley Eddingtons work. Eddington's work gave voice to Albert Einsteins work. Professor Brunell's lecture gave voice to both of them.  The fact that Professor Brunell gave away her award to help others is testiment to her personality and beliefs. A women true to herself, an inspiration to us all.
Here is an article about Professors Brunell's award
A leading Belfast-born scientist has won a $3m international prize for her ground-breaking work and contribution to the field of physics.

4 Rams offensive linemen named to PFF’s Team of the Week
To say the Los Angeles Rams dominated in the trenches during their opener Monday night against the Oakland Raiders would be an understatement. The offensive line that took a huge step forward last season under the leadership of Aaron Kromer showed no signs of regression yesterday and completely mauled the Raiders’ defensive front. Pro Football Focus recognized this, naming four Rams linemen to their Week 1 Team of the Week.
The four players making the cut were Andrew Whitworth, Rodger Saffold, Austin Blythe, and Rob Havenstein. Four out of the five offensive line slots were given to Rams, and the only position that wasn’t a Ram was center, which went to Matt Paradis of the Broncos.

Jocelyn Bell Burnell wins $3 million prize for discovering pulsars | Ars Technica
The astronomer was famously excluded from the 1974 Nobel Prize in Physics.
When the Nobel Prizes roll around each year, inevitably there is chatter not just about who will win, but also about those in the past who should have won but didn't, particularly women scientists. Jocelyn Bell Burnell, who discovered pulsars in the 1960s, is one of the names most commonly invoked. Now 75, she has just been awarded something arguably better: a $3 million Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics.
Originally founded in 2012, the Breakthrough Prizes are intended to be the "Oscars of Science." In addition to the regular awards, the selection committee is also free to award a Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics any time it wishes, and the honor need not be for recent discoveries. Bell Burnell is being honored "for fundamental contributions to the discovery of pulsars, and a lifetime of inspiring leadership in the scientific community."

Justin Turner named NL Player of the Month - True Blue LA
Justin Turner’s red-hot August didn’t go unnoticed, as he was named the National League player of the month.
For the month, Turner led all of baseball in batting average (.402), and on-base percentage (.491). He also had six home runs, drove in 22, and scored 20 times.
This was the first time a Dodger has won player of the month honors since Adrian Gonzalez back in April of 2015.
It was a rough start to the season for JT, as he was battling injuries, and overall not having the kind of numbers we’ve become accustomed to. To start the month, Turner had a slash line of .262/.362/.417. By the time the month ended, he turned those numbers into .312/.405/.517.
The most impressive part of Turner’s month was how clutch he was. With runners in scoring position, he hit .429, driving in 12 runs. With runners on base, Turner hit an astonishing .487.
Not only was he bringing guys in, he was delivering in the clutch as well.
