Chu Joins U.S. Leaders
In New Energy Initiative

Chu
The Council on Competitiveness announced this week a new initiative that seeks to enhance U.S. competitiveness and energy security. The Energy Security, Innovation and Sustainability Initiative will focus strongly on the private sector and synergistic collaborations with academia and labor on innovation and competitiveness. Over the next 18 months, the Council will conduct a series of high-level, expert dialogues to examine the competitiveness implications of today's energy challenges and opportunities. Among those on the initiative’s Steering Committee, drawn from the executive suite of major U.S. corporations, universities and labor unions, is Berkeley Lab Director Steve Chu. Go here for more details on the initiative.

McKone
Tom McKone, a risk assessment specialist in the Environmental Energy Technologies Division, was visited on Wednesday by KPIX-TV (Channel 5) health reporter Kim Mulvihill to talk about this week’s news story concerning ultrafine particles emitted by laser printers. While expressing interest in the report and the particles’ potential impact on human health, McKone told viewers, “Don’t throw out your printer. Be smart about how you use it.” Watch Mulvihill’s report here.

Super Test Results
For Superconducting Magnet

AFRD's Superconducting Magnet Group celebrated successful tests at Brookhaven last week of the LRS01, the longest magnet model of its kind ever built. Developed in partnership with Brookhaven and Fermilab, the superconducting magnet uses niobium-tin "racetrack" windings in an almost four-meter long supporting structure. Paolo Ferracin, who led the Berkeley Lab effort, calls the tests "a major milestone in the development of superconducting magnets for the Large Hadron Collider's Interaction Regions, beyond the current design." He emphasizes "the successful partnership between labs," including Berkeley Lab's "magnet design and analysis, cable fabrication, coil technology transfer, and structure design and fabrication."

The 37th International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics will be held at Berkeley Lab Sunday through Thursday next week. More than 100 particle physicists and nuclear scientists from throughout the world will discuss research in areas such as soft interactions, fluctuations and correlations, jet physics, heavy flavor production, astroparticle physics, small-x physics and diffraction, and particle propagation in dense matter. Berkeley and Brookhaven national labs are co-hosts. Most sessions will be in the Building 50 Auditorium. Go here for more information and the program.

Corpse Flower Viewing
Free to Lab Employees

Several observant readers wrote Today at Berkeley Lab to remind employees that anyone interested in visiting the UC Botannical Gardens to view the exotic Corpse Flower, "Titania the Titan," can do so for free by showing a valid Lab ID. Entrance is always free to all visitors the first Thursday of every month. For a link to Wednesday’s Titania story, go here.
