U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for November 5

WASHINGTON, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:



Profile America — Monday, November 5th.  This year's Nobel prizes were announced last month, and the award ceremonies will be held in Stockholm, Sweden and Oslo, Norway next month.  In 1952, the prize for medicine was awarded for the discovery of the first antibiotic produced in the U.S. — streptomycin.  The breakthrough medicine was developed by a Ukrainian immigrant, Dr. Selman Waksman, and four of his students at Rutgers University in New Jersey in 1944.  It went into production later that year and proved to be the first antibiotic treatment for tuberculosis.  Making antibiotics is now an $11.3 billion a year business.  You can find current data on the country's economy — on the go — by downloading the new "America's Economy" mobile application at <>.
