The YWIB-Greater Montreal “Planting the Seeds of Science Workshop” at the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Center at McGill University was a great success. We celebrated Women's History Month by encouraging future scientists to follow in the footsteps of great female scientists. The girls identified normal and cancer tissue through a microscope, isolated their DNA (or a kiwi's), and even had a chance to pipette protein samples.
The Man Who Played God is a 1932 American drama film directed by John G. Adolfi. The screenplay by Julien Josephson and Maude T. Howell is based on the 1914 play The Silent Voice by Jules Eckert Goodman, who adapted it from a story by Gouverneur Morris. Goodman's play previously had been filmed under its original title in 1915 and as The Man Who Played God in 1922. It was adapted for the screen yet again as Sincerely Yours in 1955.
When we say someone was on top of the world before he experienced a sudden fall, we usually mean it as a metaphor. In the case of Morris Goodman, it was literally true. On March 10, 1981, Goodman was flying a single-engine Cessna 172 around Chesapeake Bay. Thirty-five years old and one of the top life insurance agents in the world, Morris lived in a 5,000-square-foot home in Virginia Beach, Va., with his wife Sandy, drove a Cadillac Seville and had purchased the Cessna just the day before.
