    (In Defense of Thailand Peace Struggle) Nobel Prize Museum, a short visitors' guide


    'A Call for Peace', Are you cause for Emergency alarm clock comes ringing on protest? That is just a normal JOKES for reflect the vision from Prime Minister, Academic Professors, Scientists, Literatures & the members of Royal Family in Thailand.


    In Defense of the Peace struggle, anyone in Thailand nominators for Nobel Prize? To my knowledge there has never been Nobel awarded to a Thai person. No offense intended, just an old joke. This was very interesting facts.


    Nomination for the Nobel Prize is a big deal for Thailand. This ISN'T LIKE THE OSCARS AWARD FROM ACTORS TO DIRECTORS where there are 5-10 nominees; there are hundreds of Nobel nominees and the only criteria for becoming a nominee is a letter from somebody in a relevant field. Genius, passion, hard work, and a luck, that was what we are told sets Nobel prize recipients apart from us just mortals.


    The Nobel Peace Prize winner is chosen by the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which is making up of five fiercely-independent members. Since 1936, government officials have been prohibited from sitting on the committee to avoid any hints that the Committee may be influenced by the current political climate in Norway.


    Everyone can be a nominees, all you need is a letter from some well-qualified professors detailing why that person for the pursuit of the prize. You can't nominate yourself or others for the prize and you can't campaign to be chosen the winner.

    (According to the Nobel Peace Prize website http://www.nobelprize.org ), nominees are only accepted from a select few people, including members of national governments, members of the Permanent Court of Arbitration and of the International Court of Justice at the Hague, former Nobel Peace Prize winners, and so on.


    Organizations can be nominated, as well as individuals. The goal of the Nobel Peace Prize is to award people who "have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.


    This is, of course, NOT a how-to or beginning guide in winning the Nobel Prize. Rather it is ‘A SHORT TRAVEL GUIDE FOR THE VISITORS’ to visit the Nobel Prize museum in Stockholm, Sweden.There are many other ways to get into the Nobel spirit while you are visiting Stockholm. Take a tour of the inside and see the hall where the Nobel banquet is held every year.


    Stockholm in July is warm and very beautiful. The Kingdom of Sweden is a rocky country with many lakes, and trees, and lovely parks. I visited the Skansen museum, the Stockholm's City Hall, the university where the meeting was, and some parks around the hotel. Skansen is a famous Swedish open air museum with a nice zoo and many traditional old houses, which give a glimpse of Sweden before electricity and industrialization.


    Nobel Prize is regarded by far as the most prestigious prize in the world, the Award Ceremonies as well as the Banquets in Stockholm and Oslo on 10 December have been transformed from local Swedish and Norwegian arrangements into major international events that receive worldwide coverage by the print media, radio and television.


    The Nobel Prize ceremony was held in the Blue Room of the City Hall in December every year. This was where the reception for our conference was held (as well). The room is not blue. The architect changed his mind when he saw the beautiful red brick walls of the Blue Hall and decided against painting them blue.


    After the reception, our group visited the Golden Hall (see picture), which is another room in this beautiful building. The golden part comes from the 18 million pieces of gold mosaic and glass covering its walls. The mosaic figures on the walls looked like the painted walls in cathedrals. However, they not have much to do with religion. They represent important events in Sweden and in the world.


    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)
