Man, all this glamour and glitz going on right here in Mountain View, and where was I? On my couch in pjs sipping tea. I guess I am on the XYZ list.

Sigh. I just found out the hard way that if I go to another web page (in this case to check out the 45! photos), my unfinished comment gets wiped out.
Your article is better than the Mercury News article, which deliberately discussed only the event and celebrities, ignoring the honorees. You at least mentioned two by name but only one, "Richard Lifton of Yale, ... for discovering the molecular cause of hypertension", got his prize this year. The other, "Cornelia Bargmann, a neurobiologist from Rockefeller University [for?]", got her prize last year.
At the end, the pictures included several of the winner(s) of the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, but without names or what their breakthrough was. $21 million worth of $3 million prizes were awarded--that says 7 prizes to me--not 1.

You do good work, Veronin.
