The Egypt of the Great Pyramids, the Sphinx, and the Valley of the Kings was an empire of indomitable might. Then, around 800 BC, the impossible happened. Kush, a subject kingdom from the south, rose up and conquered Egypt, enthroned its own Pharaohs, and ruled for nearly 100 years.

These were the mysterious Black Pharaohs of what is today Sudan—the Nubian kings—whose reign has become legendary among Africans and written off as heresy by early archaeologists who refused to believe that dark ski

Think World Class: Shift Your Thinking - Maximize Your Results

Think World Class: Shift Your Thinking - Maximize Your Results | Resource Sources | Scoop.it
Think World Class is a must read for anyone wishing to move beyond limitations and to join the ranks of World Class Thinkers. Brent Baldwin shows us how our self-imposed limitations may be impairing opportunities in all areas of our life. Think World Class provides constructive challenges and the direction required to bust through and embrace a mental shift on our own terms, opening us to options and alternatives that we had never before considered. By applying critical thinking and constructive challenges to beliefs and perceptions that may be limiting our potential, we build from a position of strength rather than attempting the often-futile effort required for radical change. Shifting to expand options validates the core values and constructive beliefs that define our personality. Too often we try to implement radical change only to find that it is unsustainable as it moves us from the essence of who we are. From concept to an international audience of thousands, Brent Baldwin’s blog www.ThinkWorldClass.com evolved in just a few short years to critical acclaim. This book is an extension of that blog and a response to the enthusiastic support it has received from a growing and appreciative audience. Think World Class is presented in a format that is practical and salient to innate issues and everyday concerns in all areas of our life Think World Class could be the most important book that you read this year.

10 Groundbreaking Women Scientists Written Off By History

Shelby Hoebee October 14, 2013

Outside of Marie Curie, how many other famous female scientists can you name? What were their discoveries? For most, the answer is not very many. Women have been very underrepresented in the world of science and this is not to say that it’s because they haven’t made any discoveries, but more so the fact that their discoveries have remained all but forgotten due to their male counterparts.

While sexism in science isn’t as large of an issue today, many female scientists in the past were not given the credit they deserved for their truly groundbreaking discoveries: making observations, proposing hypotheses, testing experiments, and putting in the hard work only to have their fame stripped away because of their sex.
10 Vera Rubin
b. 1928

Vera Cooper Rubin '48

Vera Rubin’s scientific career has been filled with criticism and hostility by her male colleagues, though she remains focused on her work rather than the politics of it all. Her first taste of hostility came when she had informed her high school physics professor that she’d been accepted into Vassar. He not so encouragingly replied, “That’s great. As long as you stay away from science, it should be okay.”

This didn’t discourage Rubin, however, and after being turned down from the astronomy program at Princeton because they didn’t allow women, Rubin went on to eventually earn her PhD at Georgetown. Working with her partner, Kent Ford, Rubin was the first to make the observation that stars on the outlying parts of galaxies had an orbiting speed matching that of the stars in the center of the galaxy. This was a very odd observation at the time because it was thought that if the strongest gravitational forces existed where the most mass was (in the center), the force should decrease farther out, causing the orbits to slow.

Her observations had confirmed a hypothesis made earlier by a man named Fritz Zwicky that said some sort of invisible dark matter must be scattered throughout the universe keeping their orbitals up to speed. Rubin was able to prove that 10 times more dark matter existed in the universe than previously thought, with up to 90 percent of the universe being filled with it. For years, Rubin’s observation failed to receive support, as many of her male colleagues discredited it. They felt her discoveries were impossible under Newtonian Laws and that she must have made a miscalculation. Both her doctoral and master’s thesis were criticized and basically ignored, though the evidence was irrefutable. Fortunately, the scientific community has since recognized her work, but only because her male colleagues later validated it. Rubin has yet to receive a Nobel Prize for her work.

9 Cecilia Payne
1900–1979

Cecilia H. Payne

Cecilia Payne is a female scientist who came from a background of hard work, only to have her amazing discoveries discredited by her male superiors at the time. She began her studies at Cambridge University in 1919 after being given a scholarship for botany, physics, and chemistry. Her courses were seemingly completed in vain since Cambridge didn’t even offer degrees to women at the time. While at Cambridge, Payne did discover her love of astronomy. She transferred to Radcliffe and became the first woman to earn a PhD in astronomy there, while many began to take note of her astronomical brilliance.

After publishing six papers and earning her doctorate by 25, her biggest contribution to science was the discovery of what elements made up stars. Now I don’t know about you, but I think the ingredients of the stars are a pretty big deal . . . her male colleagues apparently did not think so. A man named Henry Norris Russell, who was in charge of reviewing Payne’s astonishing work, strongly persuaded her not to publish the article. His reasoning was that it was to contradictory to the standard knowledge of the time, and it wouldn’t be accepted. Interestingly, he did seem to have a change of heart four years later when he miraculously concluded what particles the sun was made up of and had his own papers published. Though his methods weren’t the same as Payne’s, his conclusion was, and he was given full credit for the discovery of the sun’s composition. From then on, Cecilia was basically stamped out of the history books. In another ironic twist, Payne had the “honor” of later being awarded with the Henry Norris Russell Prize for her contributions to astronomy.
8 Chien Shiung Wu
1912–1997

Wu

Chien Shiung Wu was a Chinese immigrant to America, where she began her work with the Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb. Her biggest contribution to the world of science was a discovery that overturned a widely accepted law at the time. In science, “laws” are the most widely accepted and replicated observations in existence; so proving a scientific law wrong is a pretty big deal. The law was known as the Principle of Conservation of Parity, which is basically a very complicated way of proving the idea of symmetry, where particles that are mirror images of each other will act in identical ways.

Wu’s colleagues, Chen Ning Yang and Tsung Dao Lee, proposed a theory that this law could be disproven and approached Wu to help them prove their theory. Wu accepted their offer and carried out several experiments using cobalt-60 that proved the law wrong. Her experiments were incredibly significant in that she was able to show that one particle was more likely to eject an electron than the other and they were therefore not symmetrical. Her observation had overturned a 30-year belief and shattered the conservation of parity law. Yang and Lee of course didn’t record her observation and instead went on to win a Nobel Prize for their “discovery” that the conservation of parity was incorrect. Wu was given no mention, though it was her experiment that truly disproved the law.
7 Nettie Stevens
1862–1912

Nettie Stevens

If you don’t know a lot about chromosomes, you should at least know that our sex is determined by our 23rd pair of chromosomes, the X and Y. Who is credited for this huge biological discovery? Well, most textbooks would point you to a man named Thomas Morgan, though the discovery actually goes to a female scientist by the name of Nettie Stevens. She studied sex determination in mealworms and soon realized that it depended on the X and Y chromosomes. While she was recognized as working with a man named Thomas Morgan, nearly all of her observations were made independently.

Morgan was later credited with the Nobel Prize for Nettie’s hard work. To add insult to injury, he later posted an article in the journal Science saying that Stevens acted as more of a technician than an actual scientist throughout the whole experiment, though this was found to be quite untrue.
