Lab Website Included
In Energy-Saving Story

O.K., so you've been putting off weatherizing your home or replacing that aging dishwasher with an energy- efficient model. With the impact of Hurricane Katrina promising higher energy costs this winter, is it finally time to get started on all those energy-saving projects? The best way to get an idea where you can save money is to do an energy audit. At, use the Home Energy Analysis link to get recommendations based on a simple questionnaire. For a more detailed audit, go to Berkeley Lab's Home Energy Saver website. Full story.


Electrochemist Cairns
Joins Honorary Society

Elton Cairns, with the Lab's Environmental Energy Technologies Division, has been inducted as an honorary member to the International Society of Electrochemistry. Cairns and his research group study the "fundamental properties and behavior of electrodes employed in high-performance rechargeable batteries and fuel cells." He is the former director of what was then called the Environment and Energy Division. Go here to read a story on the history of electrochemical research at the Lab and Cairns' role in its formation.


Safety Survey Deadline
Extended to Tomorrow

A questionnaire on Berkeley Lab's safety culture will be available for completion through close of business tomorrow. Lab employees are encouraged to comment on the services provided by Environment, Health and Safety in this 10-minute, 30-question survey. Results will contribute to making the Lab a safer place to work. All input is anonymous. Go here to take the survey.

Charity Effort Hopes
To Collect One Ton
Of Food

The food drive to assist victims of Hurricane Katrina, announced in the Sept. 15 issue of Today at Berkeley Lab, continues with the goal of collecting a ton of food, says organizer Deborah Martin. So far, nearly 330 pounds have been gathered. Drop-off points include the cafeteria, and Buildings 69 entryway, 69-229, 76-222, 003-146 (Calvin Lab), 943-275 (OSF), and 100 (JGI).
