Nobel Nobel

Eye on the Prize, Number 5

How about that Nobel Prize?

The Nobel Peace Prize (SwedishNorwegianNobels fredspris) is one of the five Nobel Prizes established by the will of Swedish industrialist, inventor, and armaments manufacturer Alfred Nobel, along with the prizes in ChemistryPhysicsPhysiology or Medicine, and Literature. Since March 1901, it has been awarded annually (with some exceptions) to those who have “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses“.

Barack Obama won the Prize just for getting elected. Later this year we expect President Trump to make the trek to Oslo to get his.

Sources say that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un expressed his anger and frustration with the US following his failed summit with President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin during a North Korea-Russia summit in Vladivostok, Russia. CNN’s Brian Todd reports.

How about that Nobel Prize!

Maybe next year.
