Wilfrid Basil Mann
Wilfrid Basil Mann (1908–2001) was a radionuclide metrologist.
He was born in Ealing, Middlesex in the United Kingdom on August 4, 1908, he received his Doctorate in Physics from Imperial College of Science and Technology in London in 1937.
He did graduate work during the 1930s in Copenhagen and Berkeley. While at Berkeley he worked with E.O. Lawrence on the cyclotron in the radiation laboratory and was the discoverer of the radioisotope gallium-67, which is still in use in nuclear medicine.
His mentor at Imperial College was G. P. Thompson the British physicist in charge of the Tube Alloys project during the war years (the British nuclear program that was later incorporated into the Manhattan Project).
He had Mann assigned to the British Embassy in Washington DC and to the Chalk River Laboratory in Canada. In 1951, Wilfrid Mann came to the National Bureau of Standards as the head of the Radioactivity Section. For the next 30 years Wilfrid Mann was the most influential radionuclide metrologist in the world.
During the early 1950s, he had a keen interest in the national standards for radium-226 and undertook microcalorimetric experiments to intercompare the national standards (Hönigschmid standards) of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Germany. He retired from NBS in 1980. His several texts include Radioactivity and Its Measurement, 1980 (Mann, Ayres, and Garfinkle), A Handbook of Radioactivity Measurements Procedures, NCRP Report 58, 1985 edition, and Radioactivity Measurements: Principles and Practice, 1988 (Mann, Rytz, and Spernol).

the passionate moviegoer: turner this month - bravo!
Bette Davis slums - regally - in "Pocketful of Miracles," Capra's remake of his "Lady for a Day" Great stuff on Turner Classic Movies this month, including the original French "Fanny" trilogy; tributes to people as diverse as Tyrone Power, Michael Sarrazin, Barry Levinson and star-of-the-month Sean Connery; a Latino retrospective (which, unfortunately, includes the ubiquitous "West Side Story"); Glenn Ford playing Frank Sinatra, and the recurring image of Rex Harrison and Wilfrid Hyde-White playing Barbie with Audrey Hepburn in "My Fair Lady.

Nothing is Written: A Film Blog: Decision Before Dawn
Decision Before Dawn (1951) is a really remarkable film. A Best Picture nominee in 1951, it's been virtually forgotten today, but its mixture of gritty authenticity and a surprisingly well-rounded portrait of wartime Germany makes a unique and powerful film.

Becca's Book Blog: Tadzio is to Gus von A as Dorian Gray is to Basil Hallward
"…If you only knew what Dorian Gray is to me!"Gus von A (the poet in Death in Venice) and Basil Hallward (the painter in The Picture of Dorian Gray), besides being characters in books with themes of dandyism and latent homosexuality, have in common seemingly shameful obsessions with their respective muses (Tadzio & Dorian Gray), obsessions that threatened, at least in each artist’s mind, to overshadow the resulting art itself. From Death in Venice:“Verily it is well for the world that it sees only the beauty of the completed work and not its origins nor the conditions whence it sprang; since knowledge of the artist's inspiration might often but confuse and alarm and so prevent the full effect of its excellence.
