Teacher Brings Lab
Technology to Classroom
By Linh Tat

A Union City teacher completing his second summer internship at Berkeley Lab has created a web tutorial for greengenes, an application developed at the Lab that allows users to analyze gene sequences. Through this experience, Jonathon Davies, a CSEE Summer Fellow, has also developed a class assignment: Students pretend to be professional microbiologists hired by a city to test water samples. After submitting their findings to the county health department, the scientists attend a City Council meeting where the elected officials must decide whether to shut down the area's beach.

McKone Featured
On California Report

McKone

Tom McKone, a risk assessment specialist in the Environmental Energy Technologies Division, was featured on KQEDs California Report last week discussing household hazardous waste such as car batteries, old irons, and rusty circuit boards. These items are considered household hazardous waste because chemicals in them are dangerous to human health and the environment. When these items are thrown out, they become the problem of the county government. The program checks in with Santa Clara County to see how they manage their toxic trash. Full story.

Public Notice Meetings Today
On Collective Bargaining Proposals

img2

The current collective bargaining agreements between the University of California (UC) and three unions provide for negotiations in 2007 regarding Berkeley Lab wages and other Lab-specific issues. The three unions are Coalition of University Employees (CUE) covering 153 clerical employees, American Federation of State, Federal and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) covering 89 service unit employees, and the Alameda County Building and Construction Trades Council (BCT) covering 71 skilled trades employees. Local bargaining may begin following completion of the public notice meetings. Berkeley Lab will convene initial public notice meetings at 2120 University Avenue today in room 547, and August 28 in room 649. The schedule will be same on both days, as follows: BCT from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., AFSCME from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and CUE from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Copies of initial bargaining proposals will be available at the meetings. Interested members of the public may secure copies of initial bargaining proposals from both parties or online here. For contacts and more information go here.
