Lab Water Expert Gadgil Featured on NPR Show

Berkeley Lab's resident expert on water resources in third-world countries, Environmental Energy Technology's Ashok Gadgil, was a featured guest on the call-in talk show, "The Connection," on National Public Radio. The one-hour program, emanating from NPR's Boston affiliate, aired Wednesday morning. During the show, he commented on the world's need for clean, fresh drinking water, whether it be in the aftermath of a catastrophe like the Asian tsunami or in the everyday lives of impoverished citizens throughout the world.

Tips on
Proper Way to Ride Bus

In previous Today at Berkeley Lab articles, safety hints on catching and boarding the bus have been covered. Now, being a good passenger is the topic. First, wait for all passengers to get off the bus before getting on. For those who use backpacks, remove them before boarding. Do not stand in the doorway while the bus is in motion, stay behind the yellow line. Stay seated, if possible, when bus is moving, and don't engage driver in unnecessary conversation. To keep the bus tidy, remove any items brought on with you when departing. Before loading bicycles on a bus rack, inform the driver that you are doing so.


Computer Forensics
Course on Wednesday

A new computer security course, "Computer Forensics and Incident Investigation Methods," will be taught from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday in Building 70A-3377. The course covers such topics as making qualified forensic-duplicate copies of evidence in original media, avoiding modification of forensic evidence, and establishing a "chain of custody." Registration is required. The course is free, but space is limited.
