Great Job

by Asseman (not verified) on

This is a well produced, professional documentary short - And at a whole other level then the usual stuff I have seen. Also a great subject matter. Very impressive. Congrats to the creator - Mr. Mahyad Tousi. Look forward to seeing more from him. Didn't know about him but his google search suggests that he is a seasoned filmmaker.


Another Iranian Pride

by Daryoush Ghashghai (not verified) on

It fills my heart and my eyes with tears of joy and pride, to see such Iranians, especially Iranian women who become such respectable members of our society.

My vocabulary fails me to express my pride.

Khanoom Dr. Sabeti, thank you


Prior Coverage

by baback on

Pardis Sabeti was featured on Nova Science Now more than two months ago. NSN is part of a PBS effort to interest youngsters in a science career. NSN is a shorter format of NOVA where it cover multiple subjects instead of a single subject in an hour and is more geared toward current research rather than an established field.


Pardis owes her success

Pardis owes her success totally and entirely to ERIC LANDER. She also uses Erics words!
I think it is very rude of her not to mention Eric at all!

Maybe, but Rudi Bakhtiar....

Rudi Bakhtiar ain't no Iranian of non of my days...She sold whatever she had as an Iranian, turned her back on her Iranian-American fans, and went to work for Foxnews....No doubt the money offered was the factor, but what does that say about her character?

I truly enjoyed Pardis's points of view. Great perspective on life and quite introspective. I am proud of her and her parents for the fabulous job they have done. I hope more Iranian women folow her footsetps, both in their positive and humble outlook on life and in their professional life. Good luck!
