'Hulk' Film Crew Returns to...the Berkeley WHAT?

Image of Ang Lee, Sally Benson and Fred Elms
For a moment and a pose, Laboratory Deputy Director Sally Benson was official representative Tuesday of the Berkeley Nuclear Biotechnology Institute, fictional site of the birth of "The Hulk." Of course, this is Berkeley Lab, and Oscar-winning Director Ang Lee (left) and cinematographer Fred Elms appreciated the hospitality they encountered at the Advanced Light Source in shooting one final scene for the summer blockbuster, opening June 20. Original TV "Hulk" Lou Ferrigno and character creator Stan Lee were the featured actors here yesterday. For a preview of the film, go here (Flash plugin required).

Nanotechnology Studied
For The Battlefield

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Bernadette Tansey recently reviewed efforts under way to harness the potential of the emerging field of nanotechnology to make U.S. military forces vastly more mobile, more flexible, and more invincible. Nanosys, a Palo Alto start-up company driven in part by technology from Berkeley Lab, is featured. Also commenting is defense expert Philip Coyle, who is the husband of former Berkeley Lab Associate Director Martha Krebs. Full story.

For Property Off Site,
Get the Documentation

One of the things government auditors look for when they visit a facility is documentation that certain laboratory property that is located off-site is accounted for and legitimately used. That's why Berkeley Lab policies are clear in terms of what forms to complete and what passes need to be acquired. For a rundown on those policies in Property Management, go here.

'Yellow Ribbon' Adds Two Pick-up Points

In response to the generous donations from Berkeley Lab employees to "Operation Yellow Ribbon" last week, coordinator Carol Avellino has announced the addition of two drop-off locations. In addition to the cafeteria lobby, collection barrels are placed at the site access office (65A) and the lobby of Building 937. The project supports members of the military service. A list of items needed for the military care packages can be found here. Avellino, who delivers the goods to a distribution center each Friday, can be reached at 6651.
