Award Date

Solar Energy Radiant Heating Systems
'"Solar energy, in the last analysis, has always been the basis not only of civilization, but of life: from the primeval sun-basking plankton to modern man harvesting his fields and burning coal and oil beneath his boilers, solar energy has provided the ultimate moving force. But its direct utilization at a higher level of technology is a newer phenomenon, and rich with new potentialities at this stage of human affairs." Peter van Dresser - Landscape 1956'

Family Medicine - University of Maimonides (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

"The medicine has changed constantly from its beginnings, and these changes in the last years have been really vertiginous. The changes of articles of incorporation, the hiper-specialization and a new pattern of disease, have demanded to reframe to many countries a deep change in their systems of medical attention. The answer of many of those countries was to fortify and to stimulate the Primary Attention to Health “Atención Primaria de la Salud (APS)." [computer translation from Spanish]

Open Directory Project 

"The Open Directory Project is the largest, most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web. It is constructed and maintained by a vast, global community of volunteer editors. 
Its editorial standards body of net-citizens provide the collective brain behind resource discovery on the Web.  The Open Directory powers the core directory services for the Web's largest and most popular search engines and portals, including Netscape Search, AOL Search, Google, Lycos, HotBot, DirectHit, and hundreds of others.
Instead of fighting the explosive growth of the Internet, the Open Directory provides the means for the Internet to organize itself. As the Internet grows, so do the number of net-citizens. These citizens can each organize a small portion of the web and present it back to the rest of the population, culling out the bad and useless and keeping only the best content.

Optimal Thinking

"We are all Optimal Thinkers. Some of us use Optimal Thinking from time to time, others use it more frequently, but most of us don’t use it consistently. Until now, this peak form of thinking has not been acknowledged or structured. That’s why I coined the term Optimal Thinking. We all know that green is a color that is seen frequently in nature. Once we know that it is created by combining blue and yellow, it’s easy to reproduce it consistently. Similarly, once we identify Optimal Thinking as a specific form of thinking and understand its structure, we can reproduce it consistently."

The International House of Reiki

"The society that has evolved in this new millennium is one that is interested in balance. Learning to balance work, family, pleasure and personal growth appear to be our major concerns today. We understand that with this balance we can achieve a lifestyle that offers calm and strength rather than stress and illness. To achieve these ends, spirituality rather than religion has become our focus. There are many avenues that can be taken to explore one's spirituality. The system of Reiki is just one of these."
