I think of and remember events of 30 years ago: On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall was opened, allowing the people of East Germany to cross over freely. It was the culmination of a long development that led from fear and suppression to the loss of fear and the experience of freedom. A defining moment of my life.

June 4, 2019 The 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre in Beijing is very much on my mind; back then, we followed the developments with great interest and were dismayed by the crushed hopes and the brutality of the totalitarian state.
  A few interesting and relevant recent articles on the topic:
  - When China Massacred Its Own People
  - The New Tiananmen Papers. Inside the Secret Meeting That Changed China
  - What I Learned Leading the Tiananmen Protests
  - Photos of the Tiananmen Square Protests Through the Lens of a Student Witness
  - Als Peking ganz kurz leuchtete
  - China Cannot Erase the Truth of Tiananmen

      Our NFRF (New Frontiers in Research Fund − Exploration) application has been successful! This is a multidisciplinary collaboration with researchers at TRIUMF and Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, on the use of 225Ac for in vivo radiation therapy; it is lead by Caterina Ramogida. Our contribution is in the computational modelling of structures, bonding and stability complexes between Actinium and novel, multi dentate ligands. The title of the grant is "Novel Radiopharmaceuticals to Cure Cancer".
