DOE CFO Visits Lab

DOE Chief Financial Officer Steve Isakowitz and Deputy CFO Owen Barwell visited the Lab on Wednesday to meet with Director Chu, CFO Jeffrey Fernandez and other Lab scientific and operations staff. While here they toured the ALS, NCEM, the Molecular Foundry and the Bevatron. In addition to briefings on the Helios program, life sciences and computing research, there were discussions about Lab infrastructure and financial issues. Isakowitz and Barwell visited SLAC on Tuesday and will be at Livermore on Thursday.

Director Chu Featured On Science Education Site

Several interviews with Director Steve Chu are showcased on a website designed to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists. The Honeywell Nobel Initiative establishes a forum for students worldwide to learn directly from Nobel Laureates in Chemistry and Physics. Chu discusses his Nobel Prize-winning research, the energy problem, and science as a profession, among other topics. Other Nobel lectures feature such luminaries as Roger Kornberg, Leon Lederman, and in the future, George Smoot.


Tips For Making
Office Moves Safe


If there is one constant here at the Lab, it is the likelihood that employees will move their office once or more during their tenure here. The EHS Division provides tips to make your move as safe as possible, and reminds employees that moving offers the opportunity to remove old files to archives, and recycle all paper, diskettes, and transparencies. Employees, as well as their supervisors and work leads, are reminded to keep an eye out for and prevent unsafe and risky practices before, during and after the move. Full story.

UC Sexual Harassment
Policy Applies to Lab

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all persons who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of all forms of harassment, exploitation, or intimidation. Every member of the University community should be aware that the University is strongly opposed to sexual harassment, and that such behavior is prohibited both by law and by University policy. The University will respond promptly and effectively to reports of sexual harassment, and will take appropriate action to prevent, to correct, and if necessary, to discipline behavior that violates this policy. The University of California's policy and procedures concerning sexual harassment apply to Berkeley Lab and are part of RPM 2.01(A)(2) and 2.05(E). Additional information on reporting sexual harassment may be found here.
