‘Century of Physics’
Seen in Timeline Posters

As part of Berkeley Lab’s 75th anniversary celebration, a series of colorful posters has been mounted on the lobby wall outside the Building 50 Auditorium. This timeline, A Century of Physics, originated in a committee formed in 1995 to plan the celebration of the 100th birthday of the American Physical Society. The story of physics in the 20th century unfolds like a tapestry teeming with people, ideas, and things. You’ll find the Lab’s own Nobelists, beginning with Ernest Lawrence, sprinkled throughout. Good reading during meeting and conference breaks. Go here for more on the timeline wall charts.


Wanted: Science Fair
Judges for Thursday

The San Francisco Bay Area Science Fair is still seeking judges for its event this Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. To volunteer or for more information, call Joe Crippen, in Berkeley Lab’s Center for Science and Engineering Education, at x5816. Go here for more about the fair.

Travel Office Moves
Back to Building 937

moving van
The Lab's Travel Office and Conference Services is moving from Building 939 to the fifth floor of Building 937 today. The phone extension, x4500, will remain the same, but the mail stop will be MS9370500. Due to this move, there may be some delay in responding to e-mail and voicemail messages. Employees are asked to be patient during this transition.

How-to Series: Moving
Discoveries to Market

Tech transfer
A new four-part series entitled, "Transferring Technology to the Marketplace" is being launched for researchers on Wednesday, April 5, from noon to 1 p.m. in Perseverance Hall. Sponsored by the Technology Transfer Department and Berkeley Lab Institute, the series will feature Lab inventors, corporate representatives, and venture capitalists who will talk about the invention process from their respective experiences and interests. Attendance is free. Click here for more details on the first session, "Eureka! Inventing and What Happens Next." For information on the series, go here.

‘Active for Life’ Program
Preview Here Today

active 4 life
Employees who need help eating healthy or becoming more physically active should join the Health Care Facilitator and the American Cancer Society today in Perseverance Hall at noon. Learn more about “Active for Life,” a new 10-week program that will be starting here at the Lab. It encourages people to be more active and to eat healthier foods on a regular basis. Active for Life uses a “positive point system” for behavior and lifestyle changes. Participants keep track of their points, and are rewarded for making progress.

Director Giving Hamilton Lecture at Princeton U.

Steve Chu
Berkeley Lab Director Steve Chu will speak on "The Energy Problem: Our Current Choices and Future Hopes" at 8 p.m. Thursday at Princeton University. In addition to discussing today's options for securing clean, affordable and sustainable sources of energy, he is expected to describe some areas of energy research that may lead to transforming technologies. Chu's talk is the physics department's 31st Annual Donald Ross Hamilton Lecture.
