Bengt I. Samuelsson

Born 21 May 1934. Bengt Ingemar Samuelssohn is a Swedish biochemist who shared the 1982 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine with fellow Swede Sune K. Bergström and Englishman John Robert Vane for “their discoveries concerning prostaglandins and related biologically related substances.” They identified, isolated and analysed numerous examples. These are local tissue hormones that defend cells from sudden changes in such conditions as blood pressure, body temperature, allergic reactions, and other physiological phenomena in mammals. From 1965, Samuelsson was credited as the leading scientist in the biochemistry of prostaglandins and for the current knowledge of the prostaglandin tree with all its branches.«

Polishing Apples

A young man asked an old rich man how he made his money.
The old guy fingered his expensive wool vest and said, "Well, son, it was 1932. The depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel."
"I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents."
"The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $9.80."
"Then my wife's father died and left us two million dollars."
