Greetings friends, 

Did you hear the news? Yesterday, Dr. Elinor Ostrom was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics! She is the first woman to receive this prestigious honor. What struck me is that Dr. Ostrom is a pioneer! She was prevented from taking trigonometry when in high school because her teachers didn’t think she would need it—not to mention that her teachers thought she wouldn’t be good at it. How wrong they were! Check out this great audio interview from National Public Radio, and remember: keep on your important work!!
