The National Organization of Italian American Women (NOIAW) has selected Scientific American editor in chief Mariette DiChristina as one of its "Three Wise Women" of 2009. The organization, which since 1980 has been lauding extraordinary Americans of Italian heritage as a means to create positive role models, cited DiChristina for her achievement in science journalism and her exceptional leadership.

The other two honorees are Dr. Concetta M. Tomaino, the executive director of the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, and attorney Maria T. Vullo, partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP.

The honor marks the second time in two months that DiChristina has been recognized for achievements in her field. In October, she was praised by New York City’s Italian Heritage and Culture Committee in their celebration of Galileo’s contributions to science.

If you’re in New York City next month, you can attend the NOIAW celebration of its honorees, which will be held on January 8, 2010, at the Columbus Citizens Foundation in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. But you’ll have to pony up at least $125 for a ticket. Not cheap, but hey, how many times will you be able to rub elbows with three wise women?

    My son ADITYA GUHA, student of 9th Standard is very fond of reading Scientific American Magazine. He has a dream of studying Astrophysics in any American University. The said magazine has a lot of article dealing with Astronomy. Infuenced by dis desire, I wanted to subscribe the saide magazine and for that I had despatched my payment of US$44.00 for 12 Issues dt.17th November, 2009 to :
    SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. HARLAN, USA, PIN:3186. But I forgot to send alongwith the payment the description order form whic reads as:
    SCA 0018555631 B0938V201 13 09/24/2009 SCABL002 GLG70S 37 EXP SEP10

    Please see to it so that my son could be able to read through those valuable issues of Scientific American Magazine, for which I had made the payment long back.

    High Regards.
