Wyss named to American Academy of Arts and Sciences

first_img Read Full Story Hansjörg Wyss has been elected to membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS) in recognition of his outstanding achievements in the field of business, corporate, and philanthropic leadership. He joins more than 200 other new members for 2019, who are world leaders in the arts and sciences, business, philanthropy, and public affairs. These elected members join with other experts to explore challenges facing society, identify solutions, and promote nonpartisan recommendations that advance public good.“I am deeply honored and humbled to be elected to an organization whose goal is to improve the lives of people around the world, and I am eager to engage with my fellow members to continue to make progress solving the biggest problems that plague humanity today,” said Wyss. “I believe that science and engineering are paving the way toward a more healthy, sustainable, and equitable future for all, and it is crucial that those disciplines be supported and enabled to achieve their full potential.”Wyss is dedicated to helping save the world’s last remaining wild places, encouraging scientific and medical breakthroughs, and empowering the most vulnerable in society. His long-standing support for science, engineering, and medical training include large gifts that enabled Harvard University and four Swiss universities to create multi-disciplinary scientific institutes, including the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, to produce ground-breaking research in a variety of fields.Among those accomplishments is a new immunotherapy for cancer, currently in clinical trials run by Novartis; organs-on-chips that emulate human organs and could one day replace drug testing on animals; soft exosuits to help rehabilitate stroke patients and protect workers in physically demanding jobs; and a molecular diagnostic platform that can detect diseases at room temperature and without the need for lab equipment.“It goes without saying that the Wyss Institute would not exist without Hansjörg Wyss’ generosity and constant commitment to our mission of taking inspiration from nature to create new breakthrough technologies that we transition into the marketplace as quickly as possible,” said the Wyss Institute’s Founding Director Donald Ingber. “We are also equally proud of the leadership he has demonstrated as a philanthropist who is helping to save our planet in so many different ways, and this is a wonderful and well-deserved honor for him.”last_img read more

U.S. Open 2019: Tiger Woods refuses to blame pain as cold weather triggers issues

first_imgHowever, the Masters champion allayed any fears during his post-round news conference, telling reporters: “When it’s cold like this everything is achy. It’s just part of the deal.”It’s been like that for years. The forces have to go somewhere. And if they’re not in the lower back, they’re in the neck, and if not, they’re in the mid-back and if not they go to the knee. You name it.”Birdie at the [email protected] is even through 54 holes.pic.twitter.com/ljeAnlOocQ— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) June 15, 2019Asked if his neck impacted any shots, Woods replied: “Yeah, it does. As I say my back impacts every shot I play, it’s just part of the deal.”Woods refused to use it as an excuse, adding: “I’ve had my chances to post good rounds today, this week. Today was a perfect example, I fought back and if I was able to clean up my rounds the first two days, I would be closer to the lead than I am now.”It was another difficult day for Woods, who had five bogeys to go with five birdies as he posted his third consecutive round in the 70s.Woods’ putter got him in trouble on the front nine after missing a putt for par at the seventh and then another for birdie at the eighth, which put him 1 over at the turn. But he did make some nice putts, like the one at the fifth hole, which was part of his lone set of back-to-back birdies for the day.”I got off to an awful start, and clawed it around, but still gave myself a chance for tomorrow, which is positive,” Woods said. “And we’ll see what the weather forecast is for tomorrow.”There are a lot of guys ahead of me right now. Seems like everyone is doing what I was supposed to do earlier which is play 2- to 4-under par through the first seven. We’ll see what they do coming in. I was playing with An Byeong-hun today and he played a hell of a round today. Missed the ball in the correct spots and that’s what you have to do in this space.” Tiger Woods felt aches and pains as the cold weather in California flared up his injury-ravaged body but the 15-time major champion refused to use it as an excuse following his third-round display at the U.S. Open.Woods produced another battling performance at Pebble Beach, where the former world No. 1 carded a 71 to be even par after 54 holes on Saturday.
