She played truant and ... ~~got soundly shellacked for it when she was found out~~ has been nominated for the Nobel peace prize.

A thousands of small quitters are happy! (billions of 'activists' and some political parties too)

This song was very popular 40 years ago (the days of my youth):
We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the class room
Teachers leave those kids alone
... Crasy young hamsters!

It said "several important changes" have been made, including making it possible for members to resign, the election of new members, and the departure of another academy member, meaning that "the academy no longer includes any members who are subject to conflict of interest or criminal investigations."

An academy member since 1997, Engdahl had lashed out at Sara Danius in a scathing editorial where he accused her of being the academy's worst permanent secretary ever. She formally quit last month, a year after announcing she was stepping down from the secretive 18-member body.

Lise Meitner – the forgotten woman of nuclear physics who deserved a Nobel Prize....For many years, physicists believed it energetically impossible for atoms as large as uranium (atomic mass = 235 or 238) to be split into two.
That all changed on Feb. 11,1939, with a letter to the editor of Nature – a premier international scientific journal – that described exactly how such a thing could occur and even named it fission. In that letter, physicist Lise Meitner, with the assistance of her young nephew Otto Frisch, provided a physical explanation of how nuclear fission could happen.
It was a massive leap forward in nuclear physics, but today Lise Meitner remains obscure and largely forgotten. She was excluded from the victory celebration because she was a Jewish woman. Her story is a sad one.
