RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.

Nobel Prize "Medal Migrations"

Nobel Prize "Medal Migrations" per July 2012 Scientific American - RF CafeAccording to a survey done by Scientific American (July 2012), there has been a majority shift of Nobel Prize awards from European recipients to American recipients.

The graphic also includes trends in awards according to gender and age (average age increasing significantly, youngest is 25 years old, oldest is 103!). The institution with the most affiliated members is Harvard with 27.

* To wit, B.H. Obama received the Peace Prize for having done absolutely nothing (boasts of personally-selected drone "kill lists"), and A.A. Gore received the Peace Prize for work on climate change (he said the earth's internal temperature is "several million degrees"). Truly deserving contenders, maybe from the U.S. and maybe not, have been denied due recognition for their lives' works because of political agendas.
