Keasling Featured
Today on CNN

Jay Keasling, director of the Lab's Physical Biosciences Division, is one of four scientists taking part in a roundtable discussion entitled "Of Man and Machine” that will air on CNN today at 2 p.m. Originating from Singapore, the show includes panelists working in genetics, stem cells, robotics and cybernetics. With host Michael Holmes, they will examine the ways science is working to fix, augment and duplicate the human body. Other air dates include Friday at 11 p.m., Saturday at 7 a.m., noon and 11 p.m., and Sunday at noon. Go here for more information.

Computer, Tech Industry
Slowly Grows Greener

Alan Meier and Bruce Nordman of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division are featured in a Wall Street Journal article that discusses the greening of the computer industry. As the article states, customer demand is driving the push for more energy efficient computers. From nearly every part of the marketplace — road warriors whose laptop batteries won't last through a cross-country plane ride to Wall Street brokerage houses whose server rooms cost too much to power and cool — the message has been the same: We want to use less energy. Full story.

Between now and July 1, there will be an amnesty for all overdue books. Patrons will have 90 days to return borrowed books, or be charged replacement costs, plus a $20 handling fee. Please deposit overdue books in the locked Book Drop Box located in the Library in Building 50. Do not leave books borrowed in your name in any other location unattended. This policy does not affect Interlibrary Loans and materials borrowed from other libraries, which are limited to 30 days. Please direct inquiries to Jane Tierney, Library Head.
