STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Scientists and economists from the United States, Israel and Norway received their Nobel prizes on Friday at a ceremony marked by the conspicuous absence of literature laureate Elfriede Jelinek of Austria

Kenyan Wangari Maathai, the 2004 Nobel peace laureate, received her prize in Oslo, becoming the seventh African and the first African woman to win that award.

Jelinek, a feminist author who suffers from a social phobia, declined to receive her prize from Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf saying the public spotlight was "like a physical violation" for her. She will receive the prize at the Swedish embassy instead.

The Nobels, widely regarded as the world's most prestigious accolades in science and literature, have been awarded since 1901. The 2004 prizes are worth 10 million kronor ($1.4 million) each and bring the winners instant fame.

Israeli chemistry laureate Aaron Ciechanover said earlier in the week in Stockholm that his world had been turned upside down from the moment he was told he had won the prize in October.


"I answered the phone and my plain, orderly life was turned into chaos in 10 seconds," he told reporters.


Five of the prizes -- medicine, physics, chemistry, literature and peace -- were founded in the will of Swedish 19th century industrialist Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite.


"Alfred Nobel realized the importance of science in the evolution of our world," Prof. Bengt Samuelsson, chairman of the Nobel Foundation, said in a speech at the awards ceremony.

"Modern society has become so dependent on science that its very foundation is based on scientific progress," he said.


The economics prize established by Sweden's central bank has been awarded since 1969 despite recurring criticism that economics is not an exact science in the same league as physics, chemistry or medicine. In the recent past most science laureates have been Americans and 2004 was no exception with U.S. scientists sweeping the physics and medicine awards.

David Gross, David Politzer and Frank Wilczek won in physics for showing how tiny quark particles interact inside atoms. Linda Buck and Richard Axel earned the medicine prize for discovering how the human sense of smell works.

When the pair were asked at a news conference this week what was their favorite smell, Buck pointed to a flower and Axel said: "My favorite smell is the scent of a woman."(I like that answer:))


Israel got its first Nobel science prize laureates, Avram Hershko and Ciechanover sharing the honors with American Irwin Rose for research into how the body defends against disease by marking undesirable proteins for destruction.

American Edward Prescott and Norwegian Finn Kydland picked up the economics prize for studies that laid the groundwork for more independent central banks.

The King looked like a big sourpuss and so angry even when he was handing out an important awards.
Prince Carl Phillip's hair is too long. He should've gotten it cut before the ceremonies.
The only interesting thing was all the jewellery. But you could put those tiaras and parues and necklaces on an ugly person and they would look good.
When i first see all your posts,you always complain everything.Nothing good!

Queen Silvia is eating and Princess Victoria told her stop eating because the camera.So funny!:)

CP Victoria: I like the style of the dress, the material looks very beautiful, and it fits her very nicely while complimenting her figure. Not crazy about the colour, like someone else pointed out before, its not pink but its not red. IMO a red, blue, or even a light green would have been nicer. NEW tiara! Yah! So glad to see the CP wearing a tiara other than the four button tiara.

Queen Silvia: I like her tiara and her hairstyle works very well with it. Her dress is very simple, so it allowed her to show off the fanastic jewelery she had on.

P. Madeleine: I wished she could have been there...I'm sure the dress she had picked was nice. I wonder if she'll save the dress she was planning on wearing for next year's noble?

Different people dealing with fashion gave grades (in this case "pluses") for the styles of seven ladies, who attended yesterday the NPA.
Princess Christina and princess Lilian got the highest points (most pluses). Good choices, if you ask me.

After a long search I┤ve finally found the first pictures of the dinner today at the Royal castle (at Corbis). The black dress, we have seen so many times before and the 4-button-tiara....hmmmmmmm, couldn┤t she simply have "borrowed" the dress, which Madeleine would have worn yesterday? Madeleine is ill, she can┤t fend
But at least she looks happy and fit.

I like the outfit of the Queen, though I can imagine, that not too many will agree. I wonder how her hairdo looks in detail...she hadn┤t too much time to prepare today.

Which tiara is that on Lilian?

Princess Lilian is wearing the Laurel Necklace Tiara.

The tiara is a diamond necklace with a laurel motif. A wedding gift from King Oscar II and Queen Sophie to Princess Margaret of Connaught, then it went to Prince Bertil.

2) Pink dress worn this year, kinda like Mary's dress worn at a wedding, liked that as well

3) Red dress worn in 2001

LOL...I agree about borrowing Princess Madeleine's dress. CP Victoria looked very fit both today and yesterday. She looks the best she has in years. Has anyone else notice that her face looks slimmer and more grown-up? I think she looks great.

Not that fun, just the opera."Die Zauberfl÷te" or "The Magic Flute" in english. "Trolla"= to do magic "fl÷jt"= a flute,
