How 'bout a statue for discovering the insuline ? Or at least some credit  :blink:
I think that's manageable :)

What do you mean "some credit"...?
I guess you try to make some fun.
I do not have time, but in few words, Paulescu published his scientific article in French language, in 1916, in a scientific publication with international circulation, while the 2 Canadians (by the way, in Canada French is a common used language ;) ) published their research in 1920.

Actually, Zayets, more and more scientists who are not Romanian recognized the priority of Paulescu, and if wouldn't be those .... (self-censored) from Simon Wiesenthal in Paris, that would be done from about 2 years ago.

Poster Florin, I really do not understand your problem. If you said that was an (probably failed) atempt for a joke, then why the irritation?
By "... some credit", I obviously meant credit from the forementioned foundation. But you should not bother with me, afterall the war is lost.

PS : I lived for almost 4 years in Quebec (3 years and 8 months to be more precise). Believe it or not, I do speak fluent French (among others). Or you may call it Quebecoise... such a pitty, my English keyboard has a mind of its own ;) Neverthless, your French remark was way off the subject. Nobody asked for an exempt from the Canadian Constitution. You do know that there is one ;)

Hi,

I think this time it is my turn to be afraid that I was misunderstood.
Paulescu published his scientific article in French language, in a French or in a Belgian scientific magazine (I do not have time to check for accuracy.)
This means that in a country like Canada, where so many people know French and so many goods and publications from France and Belgium are available, especially in Quebec, that European publication was accessible years before the 2 Canadians published their article.

I hope now you understand why I mentioned the matter with the French language and its usage in Canada.

This is not the only unfairness regarding recognizing great priorities for certain scientists. It did not happened only with Romanian scientists, of course. As an example, it happened also with 2 Jewish women, each a great scientist in her own field - Rosalind Franklin and Lisa Meitner (I guess I spelled something wrong in the latter name). If the Jewish community is so upset regarding the fact that these 2 ladies did not receive their well-deserved Nobel prices, why do they try unfair actions in similar cases with other nations, like in the story I mentioned?

Settled ;)

Sorry for misunderstanding

PS: to be honest, I do not know many things about Paulescu except fro the fact that he invented insuline. And I have learned this in school, in Romania. Otherwise there are few references to him I have seen.

He does have a statue near of the Medicine and Farmacy University in Bucharest, close to the Monument of the Artillery.
