Bad Cholesterol: Genes
Make the Difference

Why does it seem like some people can eat all the ice cream they want without increasing their cholesterol or gaining much weight, while others with high cholesterol have to watch their diets like a hawk? It's because people's genes play an overriding role in their cholesterol response. So says a new study by Berkeley Lab life scientist Paul Williams and researchers at the Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute. Full story.


Delegate Needed
For UC Staff Assembly

A Berkeley Lab delegate is needed to fill a position on the Council of UC Staff Assemblies. The Council provides a staff perspective to UC policymakers, namely President Robert Dynes and the Board of Regents. Delegates serve a two-year term. UC employment for at least five years is required, as well as full-time non-represented status. Go here for more information on applying (the deadline is August 8). More information about CUCSA will be provided at the first Berkeley Lab Employee Forum on Tuesday, August 2 at noon in the 50 Auditorium.

Lab Employees Urged
To Be Cautious on Travel

No Berkeley Lab employees were on official travel in London last week during the terrorist attacks on the city's transportation system. Several, however, were on business in other parts of the United Kingdom. The Lab's counterintelligence office advises employees scheduled to travel to London in the next few days to be cautious and review their plans and connections to make sure there have been no changes. Go here to read a memo to employees on travel in England.


Director Helped Taipei
Celebrate Science Week

Berkeley Lab Director Steve Chu took his message of chemical-to-solar energy alternatives to Taiwan last week as part of that country's recognition of "National Science Week." Chu gave two talks on Friday in Taipei — "A Biological Solution to the Energy Crisis" and "A Physicist's Journey into Biology." The events were sponsored by the country's National Science Council as a way to inform the public of important scientific developments and the nation's science and technology programs. It is also part of the international "World Year of Physics" celebration. Go here to find out more about the Taiwan activities.


Celebration of Ghiorso Birthday, Contributions


Friday, July 15, marks the 90th birthday of Albert Ghiorso, who for well over half a century has been one of Berkeley Lab's most prolific and inventive scientists. To celebrate, the Nuclear Science Division has organized a symposium on Ghiorso's accomplishments to be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Building 50 auditorium, open to all without charge. A luncheon in Perseverance Hall will follow, featuring somewhat less formal anecdotes of Ghiorso's life. Cost including gift is $30. Contact Dianna Jacobs (x5146) for more information.
