Online Fitness Tool
Treks Across America

TransAmerica trail through Montana
Want to walk across America without leaving your hometown? Berkeley Lab life scientist Paul Williams has launched an online exercise log that allows participants to enter the number of miles they walk, run or cycle each day. The tool then tracks their progress as if they are traveling from Virginia to Oregon along the TransAmerica Trail. Users are rewarded with grand views as they exercise. Full story.

South Dakota Campaign
For Mine Lab Ramps Up

Homestake mine

South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds and the South Dakota Science and Technology Authority have scheduled a public dedication of new offices next Monday as part of the state's bid for a federal underground research laboratory. The event will commemorate the transfer of the old Homestake gold mine property to the state and submission of the conceptual design report to the National Science Foundation. Berkeley Lab physicist Kevin Lesko heads the scientific planning group for the project, one of two that the NSF is considering for a Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory (DUSEL).


High Temperatures Force Power Advisory

Today through Sunday, high temperatures are expected to spike demand for electricity as people crank up air conditioners. To prevent blackouts, the Independent System Operator, which manages the state's electricity grid, asks Californians to conserve electricity during the peak hours of noon through 7 p.m. This includes turning off unneeded lights, computers, and appliances, setting air conditioner thermostats to 78 degrees when present and 85 degrees when away, and avoiding the use of major appliances until after 7 p.m. For more information about the advisory and additional energy saving tips, go here.
