Joe Halpern has won both a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Fulbright Scholar award for the upcoming academic year. You can learn more about these prestigious honors at http://www.gf.org  and http://www.iie.org/cies/us_scholars/  In both cases the competition is intense and it reaches across all the arts and sciences. There is no reasoning about uncertainty here--Joe is a true scholar!  So please join me in congratulating our colleague for this wonderful double honor.
