So many vulnerabilities in Microsoft's Internet Explorer have been found that the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) has recently recommended that people quit using this Web browser.

Competition Hot
At Chili Cookoff

Facilities Division employees turned out in force at lunchtime yesterday for the first Facilities Division Chili Cookoff. The competition drew 14 contestants, who served up their fiery fare from creatively decorated booths in the Building 69 parking lot. Judging was provided by the Alameda County Fire Department, which dispatched Berkeley Lab firefighters Tom Neuerberg, Maureen Noon, Dave Piepho and Jason Lemoine to the scene. The firefighters awarded the prize for best chili to the Chili Willy team of Harry Bash, Phil Bach, and Victor Hepa. Look for more results and pictures from the cookoff in the next issue of The View on Sept. 3.


Unified Project
Call Process

Effective immediately, Berkeley Lab's Policy on the Unified Project Call Process has been revised. This process provides programmatic and infrastructure organizations with the opportunity to examine their operational needs and to submit prioritized candidate Line Item Project (LIP), General Plant Project (GPP), Non-Capital Alteration (NCA), and General Purpose Equipment (GPE) proposals in the budget process. The Unified Project Call Process policy has been modified to ensure that appropriate controls are in place and that roles and responsibilities are defined for all parties involved. The revised policy increases the roles of the Chief Financial Officer and the Scientific Divisions. Click here to review the policy in its entirety.

Morning fog, clearing later.
