Many thanks for this and fully agreed. We think in the same way as students of Mansel Davies, scholarship is the only thing worth doing. However he was also keen on fairness. Nominations for the 2017 Prize are now closed, similarly for the Wolf Prize. So I will look up deadlines and make a note of them. If any one looks promising I will let you know. There is a lot to add to the list of achievements. I think that I have produced about ten times more work than Hawking, who was given the Prize without application by a small group of friends that included Weinberg, they are all standard modellers of course. They are so arrogant now that they assert that anything that is not string theory is not physics. If that were true, there would be no Baconian physics at all. Weinberg’s electroweak theory has been shredded without objection in UFT225, so it is obsolete. Stephen Crothers and the rest of AIAS have shredded Hawking’s work many times over, so have many other groups. Hawking is just an Idol of the Cave. So it seems that Mr Rajpal was just sending me information on the Milner Prize. The AIAS Fellows could look for deadlines of some prizes. String theory is shredded in CEFE, again without objection.

Subj: Re: Accumulating Nominations
The real prize is making the massive contributions that you have made and on merit you deserve everyone of the awards on offer.
We can try Milner again but I do not understand how these awards are made – there is no feed back and I doubt that some individuals like Hawking even actually applied. His was probably a name that they considered would help their own cause. I do not know who most of the current winners are – some are obscure string theorists as you point out.
Do we know when the closing date is? I have no problem in nominating again but am resigned to disappointed for you as far as Milner is concerned. One day AIAS must set up its own prizes that would be awarded fairly and on merit and open to scrutiny.
