Raeuf Roushangar, a Michigan State University graduate student studying biochemistry, has won a prestigious Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans – an honor that comes with up to $90,000 stipend.

Roushangar was one of 30 winners of the premier graduate school fellowship for immigrants and children of immigrants. The recipients, chosen from a pool of 1,200 applicants, were selected for their potential to make significant contributions to U.S. society, culture or their academic field.

While winning the award is a high achievement, what Roushangar had to overcome is equally praiseworthy. Roushangar was born in Oman, to an Iranian father and Egyptian mother, and grew up and attended high school in Cairo, Egypt.

Louis Jordans Facebook page foreshadowed his fate. A year ago, the 37-year-old South Carolina man began posting photos of himself on his beloved 35-foot sailboat, Angel, which he had painstakingly restored. Over the coming months, he uploaded pictures of food he had jarred and fish he had caught for dinner. Jordan, it seemed, was preparing for a journey.

On Dec. 28, 2014, he posted a video to Facebook. It was grainy footage of a woman recounting a near-death experience.

Less than a month later, Jordan would be the one facing death at sea.

My old hosting company, LunarPages, turned out to be a disaster. So far, HostGator has been wonderful and I'm ready to recommend its services.

Disclosure: If you do click on this link and you get HostGator to host your website, I get paid a little for finding HostGator a new customer.
