Materials Researcher
Gets Early Career Award


Oscar Dubon, a materials science researcher with Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley, received the nation's highest honor for scientists at the early stages of their careers at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Monday. John H. Marburger III, science advisor to the president and director of the U.S. Office of Science and Technology Policy, presented the 2004 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) to Dubon and 57 other scientists. The PECASE award recognizes the most promising young researchers in the nation. Full story


Emergency Evacuation
Drill Tomorrow Morning

The Lab will conduct a site-wide emergency evacuation exercise tomorrow morning. The event will be initiated with the announcement of a simulated earthquake over the public address system, followed by a “drop, cover, and hold-on” drill, then a request to evacuate all buildings. Employees who need assistance with evacuating should contact their building manager. The time required to conduct the exercise should not exceed 15 minutes. The exercise is coordinated by the Environment, Health and Safety Division.


Lab Scientist Weighs in
On Science, Religion


Berkeley Lab computational researcher David Bailey is quoted in a recent Salt Lake Tribune article that explores how Mormons view science, creationism and evolution. "If creationism is an issue in Mormondom, it tends to be in the fundamentalist strain, not the scientifically educated part of the Mormon world," said Bailey, a computer expert at Berkeley Lab who wrote a 2003 essay on "Mormonism and the New Creationism."
