Mensa New Zealand Tertiary Scholarship Winners

Mensa New Zealand is delighted to announce the winners of the Mensa New Zealand Tertiary Scholarship for 2013.

Each winner is granted $500 toward the study of their chosen field.

The winners are:
Mr Christopher Bateman
Mr Angus Watson

Mr Bateman is a PHD Candidate researching an advanced medical imaging system that can provide faster, more high precision diagnosis of disease and injury than a conventional CT scan. Mr Bateman’s work will be extremely helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of tumours and other serious illnesses.

Mr Watson is an Engineering Honours Student at the University of Canterbury in the field of Mechatronics. His research and education will have an impact on many fields, including transport, renewable energy, healthcare and infrastructure.

Both these candidates demonstrated a high calibre of skills, work ethic, innovation and enthusiasm for their particular field of study. Both candidates demonstrated an extremely impressive desire for collaborative work and look to use their studies to benefit not only Mensa but also society in general.

Mensa New Zealand is very proud to have members within our organisation who are making such impressive contributions to society and wish both Mr Watson and Mr Bateman the best of luck with their future studies.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
