This awareness manifested itself in many ways during my time in the field, from the economic struggles of my relatives and friends back home who were susceptible to price swings at the gas pump, to the safety of my fellow troops who put their lives on the line every day to escort caravans of fuel across treacherous terrain, to the literal weight of the batteries we carried on our persons while in the theater.

Analysis of radiation exposure for troop observers, Exercise Desert Rock VI, Operation Teapot. Final report 1 Mar-15 Jul 80  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The radiation doses to troop observers and volunteer observers for Exercise Desert Rock VI are reconstructed for each applicable shot of Operation Teapot (1955). Initial neutron and gamma radiation doses are determined from transport codes ATR4 and ATR4.1. Residual radiation contours and decay rates are established through a new automated procedure that utilizes raw data in regression analysis to fit space-time models. Troop operations data are combined with the radiological data to determine integrated dose. Uncertainties are calculated for each parameter. The volunteers received the highest observer--1.6 rem gamma and 4.5 rem neutron. The highest dose received by troop observers was 1.4 rem gamma and 1.4 rem neutron at Shot Tesla.

Increased frequencies of sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) in peripheral blood lymphocytes of U.S. troops deployed in Kuwait  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Concern over potential exposure of U.S. troops to genotoxic emissions generated in oil well fires prompted a Biologic Surveillance Initiative to examine levels of genetic damage in a cohort of troops deployed in Kuwait. Blood was drawn from members of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment on June 6, 1991 while they were stationed in Germany (PRE, n=61), on August 11, 1991 after being deployed in Kuwait (DURING, n=51) and again on October 10, 1991 after returning to Germany (POST, n=36). Cells were cultured for 68-72 hours in RPMI 1640 medium supplemented with 15% fetal bovine serum, 1% phytohemagglutinin and 10 {mu}g/ml 5-bromo-2`-deoxyuridine. Metaphase cells were prepared by standard techniques and stained with Hoechst 33258 plus Giemsa to visualize SCE. Whenever possible, a total of 25 well-spread and well-stained cells were evaluated for each individual. Only 26 soldiers had values available for all three sampling points. Data on 50 soldiers was available for PRE and DURING sampling while data on 35 samples was available for a PRE vs POST comparison. The average frequency of SCE/cell increased from 4.33 {plus_minus} 0.53 in the PRE samples to 5.12 {plus_minus} 0.64 in the DURING samples to 5.28 {plus_minus} 0.72 in the POST samples. The PRE values were significantly different from both the DURING and POST values (p<0.001) using the paired t-test. While these results suggest that this cohort was potentially exposed to genotoxic materials, the source of the exposure(s) is presently not known.

April the Y-12 Care Package Project brought in more than $8,000 that April the Y-12 Care Package Project brought in more than $8,000 that will be used to purchase much-needed items for our troops. The Pentagon has sanctioned some creative ways to support our troops without unnecessarily adding to the mail congestion. Two major efforts that the military has encouraged are Operation Uplink and Operation United Service Organizations Care Package. Operation Uplink is a unique program that keeps military per- sonnel and hospitalized veterans in touch with their families and loved ones by providing them with a free phone card. Using contributions from support- ers, Operation Uplink purchases phone cards and distributes them to ser- vicemen and women who are separated from those they care about.

Two techniques for verifying conventional reductions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Conventional forces, long the forgotten stepchild of the arms control process, have recently taken on an unprecedented importance. In the United States, the Bush administration has placed the question of the conventional balance in Europe at the top of its negotiating agenda. And the NATO summit meeting in May 1989 resolved a difficult intra-alliance dispute on nuclear modernization by pledging to reach a conventional reductions agreement with the Eastern bloc in the short span of one year. The author attempt here to develop two approaches to minimize data exchanges - the envelope scheme and tagging - which could be applied in the event of conventional arms control agreements in Europe. In this context, they confine themselves to a scenario imposing restrictions on the levels of certain categories of weapon systems used for waging offensive warfare or mounting surprise attacks. NATO and the Warsaw Pact have already agreed at Negotiation Conventional armed Forced in Europe (CFE) that such treaty-limited items (TLIs) would include tanks, artillery, armored troop carries, combat aircraft, and helicopters, though precise definitions are still to be worked out. The emerging CFE agreement is expected to cover troop levels as well, but this article will focus on verification of armaments.

A comparison of subjects' annoyance ratings of rotorcraft noise in two different testing environments  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Two subjective tests were conducted to investigate people's responses to rotorcraft noise. In one test subjects heard the sounds in a room designed to simulate aircraft flyovers. The frequency range of the Exterior Effects Room (EER) at NASA Langley is 17 Hz to 18 750 Hz. In the other test subjects heard the sounds over earphones and the frequency range of the playback was 25 Hz16 kHz. Some of the sounds in this earphone test high-pass filtered at 25 Hz were also played in the EER. Forty subjects participated in each of the tests. Subjects' annoyance responses in each test were highly correlated with EPNL ASEL and Loudness exceeded 20% of the time (correlation coefficient close to 0.9). However at some metric values there was a large variation in response levels which could be linked to characteristics of harmonic families present in the sound. While the results for both tests are similar subjects in the EER generally found the sounds less annoying than the subjects who heard the sounds over earphones. Certain groups of signals were rated similarly in one test environment but differently in the other. This may be due to playback method subject population or other factors.

Military confidence building on the Korean Peninsula: possible first steps toward cooperation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Korean Peninsula is one of the world`s most tense military confrontational sites. Nearly 2 million North Korean, South Korean, and U.S. troops face each other along the 255-km long military demarcation line. Confidence building measures (CBMs), particularly military ones, that address the security needs of both countries could decrease the danger of conflict and help create an environment where a peace regime might be negotiated. In spite of the present high level of mutual distrust, steps can still be taken to prepare for future development and implementation of CBMs. This paper defines some simple and specific first steps toward CBMs that might be useful on the Korean Peninsula.

Kuwait pressing toward preinvasion oil production capacity  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Oil field reconstruction is shifting focus in Kuwait as the country races toward prewar production capacity of 2 million b/d. Oil flow last month reached 1.7 million b/d, thanks largely to a massive workover program that has accomplished about as much as it can. By midyear, most of the 19 rigs in Kuwait will be drilling rather than working over wells vandalized by retreating Iraqi troops in February 1991. Seventeen gathering centers are at work, with capacities totaling 2.4 million b/d, according to state-owned Kuwait Oil Co. (KOC). This article describes current work, the production infrastructure, facilities strategy, oil recovery, well repairs, a horizontal pilot project, the drilling program, the constant reminders of war, and heightened tensions.

Chemical arms not cause of Gulf War syndrome  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A task force commissioned by the Pentagon's Defense Science Board has found no evidence that US troops were exposed to chemical or biological weapons or to any other environmental hazard during the Persian gulf War that could resolve the mystery of unexplained symptoms now dubbed the Gulf War Syndrome.'' A Czech chemical weapons monitoring team reported detecting the nerve gas sarin and sulfur mustard at two sites in Saudi Arabia near the Iraqi border in mid-January 1991. Despite the Pentagon's uncertainties about the Czech reports, many US soldiers believe they were exposed to low levels of chemical agents. They are not convinced that all of the many chemical sensor alarms that went off during the air war were false alarms.

ARPA-E: Improving Military Energy Security  

ScienceCinema (OSTI)

The U.S. military has a vested interest in advancing microgrid technologies that can power forward operating bases. These technologies could not only help the military significantly reduce its energy demand both at home and abroad, but also they could reduce the number of fuel-supply convoys required on the battlefield and the number of troops killed in fuel-supply convoy attacks. This video highlights two ARPA-E projects that have formed strategic partnerships with the military to enable these microgrids at forward operating bases. Georgia Tech is developing an innovative absorption heat pump that utilizes exhaust heat to provide heating and cooling, which could cut the amount of energy used to heat and cool forward operating bases by 50%. Primus Power is developing a low-cost, energy-dense storage system that could store enough energy to operate a base for several days in the event of a disruption.

On April 12, 1945, only weeks before Germany's unconditional surrender on May 7, President Franklin Roosevelt died suddenly in Warm Springs, Georgia. Vice President Harry S. Truman, a veteran of the United States Senate, was now president. Truman had not been privy to many of Roosevelt's internal policy deliberations and had to be briefed extensively in his first weeks in office. One of these briefings, provided by Secretary of War Henry Stimson on April 25, concerned S-1 (the Manhattan Project). Stimson, with Leslie Groves present during part of the meeting, traced the history of the Manhattan Project, summarized its status, and detailed the timetable for testing and combat delivery. Truman asked numerous questions during the forty-five minute meeting and made it clear that he understood the relevance of the atomic bomb to upcoming diplomatic and military initiatives.

Outdoor sound propagation in the U.S. Civil War  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In a number of major battles in the U.S. Civil War unusual atmospheric acoustics played a major role. In this study the probable causes of the unusual acoustics are given and the resulting effect on military command decisions is described. The causes discussed include sound absorption wind shear temperature gradients and combinations of these. Several cases will also be described in which multiple ground reflections caused sounds of battle to be heard at unusually great distances. The battles studied include Gettysburg Seven Pines Perryville Iuka Fort Donelson Gaines Mill Five Forks and Chancellorsville.

Demand or No Demand: Electrical Rates for Standard 90.1-2010  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

ASHRAE is developing the 2010 version of Standard 90.1 with the goal of reaching 30% savings beyond the 2004 edition of the standard. Economics are used to inform the process of setting criteria and the assumed electricity rates are crucial to these calculations. Previously the committee used national average electrical rates in the criteria setting but recently a number of voices have been heard in support of using demand rates instead. This article explores the issues surrounding the use of a pure consumption rate vs. the use of demand rates and looks at the implications for HVAC equipment efficiency.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper reports that the Offshore Northern Seas conference heard a number of long term outlooks in Stavanger, Norway, last week, all with the same conclusion: the oil and gas industry needs massive investment if it is to match future demand. Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Harlem Bruntland built her scenario on a doubling of world population every 40 years. Mrs. Bruntland emphasized the growing dependence of the world economy on Middle East developments. Two thirds of the world's oil reserves are in the Persian Gulf region, she said, but only 28% of production comes from there. As the rest of the world depletes its reserves, dependence on Persian Gulf oil will grow.

Auditory Cryptography Security Algorithm With Audio Shelters  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper, auditory cryptography security algorithm with audio shelters is proposed. The meaningful audio watermarking is pretreated to high-fidelity binary audio, and the binary audio is encrypted to n cryptographic audios by (k, n) threshold scheme. Less than k of the cryptographic audios give no information, only synchronized playing k or more than k of the audios the original can be heard directly. The n cryptographic audios are embedded in the corresponding n shelter audios which are pretreated by high-dimensional matrix transformation. Experiments show that the proposed algorithm has strong practicability, high security and robustness in enduring common attacks.

Sleeping Birds Sleeping Birds Nature Bulletin No. 445-A February 19, 1972 Forest Preserve District of Cook County George W. Dunne, President Roland F. Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation SLEEPING BIRDS Each winter, a few years ago, several thousand crows, roosted in the big woods near our house. In daytime they spread out over the countryside to find food but each evening, about sundown, they came streaming back in a continuous parade that took almost an hour to pass. In flocks of dozens or hundreds with scattered birds between, they flew the same route every day. In downstate Illinois, similar flocks roost in overgrown hedgerows of osage orange, isolated groves of timber, or on willow grown islands in large rivers. A much smaller flock still roosts the year-round in our woods. Ordinarily they slip in a little before dusk and settle down quietly but occasionally there is a hullabaloo as if they were squabbling over a favorite perch occupied by some newcomers. Just before dawn, one old bird we call "the bugler" caws three times. A minute or two later he repeats it. Then, one by one, drowsy voices of other crows are heard -- much like human sleepyheads in the morning. Sometimes an alarm call is heard during the night followed by a general clamor as if the flock had been disturbed by a marauding owl, weasel or raccoon. Crows are very wary and, like most birds, light sleepers.

Dog germs Dog germs Name: Charles Cole Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: Is a dog's mouth cleaner than a human's? Replies: Charles, Indeed, I have heard that this is true, but I don't have any scientific report handy which confirms it. What I have heard in the past is that, on occasion, if someone is accidentally bitten by a person, the bite is considered quite serious. If a study ever were done, I'm sure the actual 'cleanliness' of a human versus canine mouth would have to be compared based on a variety of normal foodstuffs consumed by each group (in the humans case, maybe hot dogs, cereal, soda, roast beef, etc) and the canines (dog food, garbage cans, various animal remnants found in the neighborhood). I'm sure you can see that there would certainly be occasions where the human's mouth would register as cleaner just because of what had been eaten earlier. Another house-kept dog, fed only purchased dog food and kept 'squeaky-clean' might register cleaner than perhaps a person with poor mouth hygiene. Since we humans regularly do floss and brush, and gargle, I am sure many of us do our best to try to 'keep up with Fido'. :)

Sentential, lexical, and acoustic effects on the perception of word boundaries  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study investigates the effects of sentential context lexical knowledge and acoustic cues on the segmentation of connected speech. Listeners heard near-homophonous phrases (e.g. ? pl ? mpa ? ? for plum pie versus plump eye) in isolation in a sentential context or in a lexically biasing context. The sentential context and the acoustic cues were piloted to provide strong versus mild support for one segmentation alternative (plum pie) or the other (plump eye). The lexically biasing context favored one segmentation or the other (e.g. ? sk ? mpa ? ? for scum pie versus *scump eye and ? l ? mpa ? ? for lump eye versus *lum pie with the asterisk denoting a lexically unacceptable parse). A forced-choice task in which listeners indicated which of two words they thought they heard (e.g. pie or eye) revealed compensatory mechanisms between the sources of information. The effect of both sentential and lexical contexts on segmentation responses was larger when the acoustic cues were mild than when they were strong. Moreover lexical effects were accompanied with a reduction in sensitivity to the acoustic cues. Sentential context only affected the listeners response criterion. The results highlight the graded interactive and flexible nature of multicue segmentation as well as functional differences between sentential and lexical contributions to this process.

Poinsettia -- The Christmas Plant

Poinsettia -- The Christmas Plant Poinsettia -- The Christmas Plant Nature Bulletin No. 699 December 22, 1962 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor POINSETTIA -- THE CHRISTMAS PLANT Christmas is a day of family gatherings. In each home they have their own traditional customs. Some of us cherish those that are peculiar to the region where we were children, or the land from whence our forefathers came. Most of us have also adopted customs -- such as decorating with holly and mistletoe -- that stem from ancient pagan ceremonies or festivals but have lost their original significance. There are many myths and legends about the origin of our Yuletide customs. (See Bulletins No. 135, 173, 211, 326 and 475). In this country most families have a Christmas tree, a custom that was introduced from Germany by Hessian troops in the British army during the Revolutionary War. It prevails in Britain and most of northern Europe but is unusual in Italy, Spain and Latin America. There, the symbol of Christmas and heart of the celebration in a home is not an Evergreen tree but a miniature reproduction of the stable and manger where Christ was born.

Scientists train honeybees to detect explosives  

ScienceCinema (OSTI)

Members of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Stealthy Insect Sensor Project team have been able to harness the honeybee's exceptional olfactory sense by using the bees' natural reaction to nectar, a proboscis extension reflex (sticking out their tongue) to record an unmistakable response to a scent. Using Pavlovian techniques, researchers were able to train the bees to give a positive detection response via the PER when exposed to vapors from TNT, C4, and TATP explosives. The Stealthy Insect Sensor Project was born out of a global threat from the growing use of improvised explosive devices or IEDs, especially those that present a critical vulnerability for American military troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and as an emerging danger for civilians worldwide. Current strategies to detect explosives are expensive and, in the case of trained detection dogs, too obtrusive to be used very discreetly. With bees however, they are small and discreet, offering the element of surprise. They're also are inexpensive to maintain and even easier to train than dogs. As a result of this need, initial funding for the work was provided by a development grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

5 - Consequences of Global Warming  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter looks at different areas of risk associated with the onset of global warming. The first risk area refers to pathogens and diseases. We first discuss perspectives on disease spread, and focus on the role played by globalization and the current livestock revolution strongly affected by large-scale processes of urbanization. We then discuss zoonoses, or diseases that are passed between humans and other animals, and identify 11 kinds of zoonoses associated with global warming. Although not a zoonose, malaria is also discussed. Patterns of transmission associated with warming tend to be poleward, and small changes in temperature can produce large changes in disease vectors to higher latitudes. A brief presentation of the history of malaria shows how it has had a substantial effect on conflicts in the past, particularly the US Civil War (18611865) and World War I. It has been famously suggested that World War I ended because of the spread of Swine Flu, decimating the Axis troops and rendering many units unable to continue fighting. AIDS is presented as a contemporary example of the way in which diseases can profoundly undermine the capacity of a country to provide security and state leadership, and undercut international peacekeeping activities.

Oil imports: US energy dependence remains high after the Gulf War  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

When Saddam Hussein sent his troops across the border into oil-rich Kuwait on Aug. 2, 1990, the stage was set for yet another global oil shock. To most everyone's surprise, the gulf war's impact on oil supplies was less traumatic, in the long run, than expected. But the situation nonetheless forces the US to confront its continued dependence on oil imports. During the last major energy crisis, in 1978-1979, oil shortages resulted in higher prices and prompted Americans to save energy. Oil imports shrank. But the subsequent fall in oil prices prompted consumers to return to bigger, less-efficient cars, and oil imports climbed back up. Then Saddam plundered his neighbor, putting the torch to more than 500 Kuwaiti oil wells and sparking the US to re-examine its energy policies. This article examines the issues involved in increased U.S. dependence on foreign oil. Areas covered are history of U.S. oil dominance, postwar (WWII) import quotas, the birth of OPEC, Reagan and Bush Administration energy policies, gas mileage standards, and the future of continued dependence.

Respiratory tract infections in the military environment  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Military personnel fighting in contemporary battlefields as well as those participating in combat training are at risk of contracting respiratory infections. Epidemiological studies have demonstrated that soldiers deployed to the harsh environment have higher rates of newly reported respiratory symptoms than non-deployers. Acute respiratory diseases are the principle reason for outpatient treatment and hospitalization among military personnel, with an incidence exceeding that of the adult civilian population by up to three-fold. Adenoviruses, influenza A and B viruses, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, coronaviruses and rhinoviruses have been identified as the main causes of acute respiratory infections among the military population. Although infective pathogens have been extensively studied, a significant proportion of illnesses (over 40%) have been due to unknown causative agents. Other health hazards, which can lead to respiratory illnesses among troops, are extreme air temperatures, desert dust, emissions from burn pits, industrial pollutants, and airborne contaminants originating from degraded soil. Limited diagnostic capabilities, especially inside the area of operations, make it difficult to accurately estimate the exact number of respiratory diseases in the military environment. The aim of the study was to discuss the occurrence of respiratory tract infections in army personnel, existing risk factors and preventive measures.

Turnabout. Final report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The proliferation of ideas and strategies is equally as important as the proliferation of weapons. This paper challenges the reader to search for counters to historically successful strategies which could be turned against the US. Specifically, consider the following scenario: In 1994 Iraq, Syria, Kazakhstan, and Azerbaijan form an alliance called the Southwest Asia Consortium (SAC). In 1996 Iraq invades Kuwait to reclaim its title to the province, and a limited US-led coalition immediately begins to build up a conventional force in the Persian Gulf region. SAC members recognize Iraq's claim to Kuwait and remind the world in a joint statement that an attack on any of its members would be considered an attack on the entire alliance. Furthermore, SAC reserves the right to respond to any attack at an appropriate level, including conventional weapons, battlefield nuclear weapons, intermediate range nuclear missiles or ICBMs. As Iraq prepares a defense of Kuwait with its national forces and token SAC troop deployments, the Consortium's strategy and capability of responding to a potential attack with a full spectrum of weapons confounds America's response to the crisis.

Chemical warfare agent detectors probe the fogs of war  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The air-power-dominated Persian Gulf War was the largest massing of coalition forces since World War II. This short conflict left its own intriguing legacy of unanswered questions. Were chemical weapons used in the theater of war Some US Allies, many US service members, and a US Senator believe they were. Yet both US and U.K. defense establishments offer emphatic denials. If Saddam Hussein didn't use chemical weapons, how can the multitude of warning alarms that sounded, alarms indicating the presence of these warfare agents, be explained Did the chemical warfare (CW) agent monitors and detectors the US deployed operate properly And were they sensitive enough to detect not just militarily significant levels, for which troops would have had to don full protective gear, but also very low concentrations of these weapons, levels that Sen. Richard C. Shelby (D.-Ala.) believes may be responsible for the illnesses many Gulf War veterans are now experiencing In this paper, the author addressed these questions.

Chapter 3 Strife and hope in the lives of a scientist couple  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter outlines strife and hope in the lives of a scientist coupleKate Brny and Michael Brny. Michael's professional career started with a considerable delay. He matriculated from high school in 1939 at the age of 18 with a summa cum laude degree but was not accepted by any Hungarian University as the Numerus Clausus law restricted the admittance of Jews. By the end of 1943, the course of World War II took a visible turn: the Soviet troops recaptured their own country and were chasing the Germans out of Poland. The situation for Jews changed immediately. Kate was born in a small Hungarian town, which had good schools, theaters, a museum, and a concert hall. Kate was 15 years old in the spring of 1944, when the Germans occupied Hungary. Despite the suffering, Kate and Michael sustained their hope and achieved much of what they pursued. They contributed to science through their efforts in the laboratory, the classroom, and the encouragement of Hungarian children.

The potential impact on socio-economic groups of rising energy prices due to the Kuwaiti crisis  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Iraqi invasion of the kingdom of Kuwait on August 2, 1990, triggered immediate increases in the world price of petroleum. With US imports of petroleum and residential, commercial, and industrial consumption of petroleum products on the rise, these price increases are already evident in the US. The differential impact of these increases on poor and minority households raises significant and potentially long-term research and policy issues for various government agencies, including the US Department of Energy. The purpose of this paper is to provide a preliminary analysis of the nature and extent of the potential impact of Iraqi-induced petroleum price changes on majority, black, and Hispanic households, as well as on poor and non-poor households. As this paper is written, the US is continuing the deployment of several hundred thousand troops, aircraft, naval vessels, and other equipment to the Persian Gulf. The objectives of this deployment are to deter Iraqi invasion of Saudi Arabia and to encourage Iraqi withdrawal from Kuwait. The outcome of these initiatives, particularly the response of the government of Iraq, could stimulate additional changes in world petroleum prices and subsequent impacts on the household energy consumption and expenditure patterns of US black, Hispanic, and poor households. 8 refs., 16 figs., 5 tabs.

Snowflake Science Snowflake Science by Kate Bannan on Tue, 13 Dec, 2011 snowflake With winter just around the corner, can snow be far behind? We've all heard that no two snowflakes are alike, but what do we really know about them? Snowflakes always have six sides. Their form and shape depends on temperature and moisture. Snowflake shapes fall into six main categories: plate (flat), column, stars, dendrite (lacy), needle and capped column. When it is extremely cold, snow becomes fine and powdery and the snowflakes' design becomes simpler, usually needle or rod shaped. When the temperature is close to freezing point, snowflakes become much larger and more complex in design. Snow crystals form in clouds when the temperature is below freezing and are created by water droplets freezing on small ice particles. As an ice

Tribal Summit Tribal Summit Secretary Steven Chu Remarks as Prepared for Delivery Thursday, May 5, 2011 Arlington, VA Good morning. Thank you all for joining us today, including those of you watching online. The Obama Administration is committed to strong engagement with Tribal Nations. As a sign of that commitment, you heard from Secretary Vilsack yesterday, and today you will also hear from Secretary Salazar, Administrator Jackson, and White House officials. When I started as Energy Secretary, I made a commitment to hold this summit because it's important to hear directly from you about our shared energy challenges and opportunities. The second commitment I made was to support the Department of Energy's Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs, which was established under the 2005 Energy Policy Act.

Hollow Trees Hollow Trees Nature Bulletin No. 335-A March 3, 1969 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Roland F. Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation George W. Dunne, President HOLLOW TREES You may have heard the expression: "They couldn't see the forest for the trees". There was a time, especially in Germany, when foresters grew trees as farmers grow cabbages: thousands of acres covered with just one kind planted in long rows that were kept free of all seedlings, underbrush, dead or injured trees and everything but perfect specimens. For a while these plantations produced astonishing yields of lumber and the Germans boasted of them as models of "efficiency". The fact that they supported practically no wildlife -- only a few birds, no food for deer, and so forth -- was contemptuously dismissed.

Overuse of antibiotics Overuse of antibiotics Name: Laura M Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: I've heard so much lately about the overuse of antibiotics and the subsequent evolution of "hardier" bacteria. This situation is compounded by a lack of pharmaceutical research for new antibiotics. My question is this - are the strains of the skin eating bacteria difficult to fight as a result of this situation? Or, would they simply be life threatening without the overuse of existing antibiotics? And another question - What does the future for antibiotics look like? Thanks a lot. Replies: Tough questions you ask. The "skin-eating bacteria" are a problem even without the antibiotic issue added. I don't know of any problem of antibiotic resistance in these bacteria; they work so quickly, that the real problem arise because folks don't know they have a n infection until too late.

A very convenient holiday metaphor, to be sure, but you're probably not in the Halloween spirit in January. Nonetheless, you may be in the mood to reduce your energy costs, and standby power is something worth considering all year round. Standby power is the minimum power used when a product is plugged in. That doesn't necessarily mean the product is "on" or "attached to your cell phone"-yup, just plugged in. Obviously, a lot of products need to stay plugged in even when you're not using them; you wouldn't, for instance, unplug your digital clock when you leave the room and plug it

Exploring the Standard Model Exploring the Standard Model       You've heard a lot about the Standard Model and the pieces are hopefully beginning to fall into place. However, even a thorough understanding of the Standard Model is not the end of the story but the beginning. By exploring the structure and details of the Standard Model we encounter new questions. Why do the most fundamental particles have the particular masses we observe? Why aren't they all symmetric? How is the mass of a particle related to the masses of its constituents? Is there any other way of organizing the Standard Model? The activities in this project will elucidate but not answer our questions. The Standard Model tells us how particles behave but not necessarily why they do so. The conversation is only beginning. . . .

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory Topic Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory Topic Snowflake Science by Kate Bannan 13 Dec, 2011 in Science Communications snowflake With winter just around the corner, can snow be far behind? We've all heard that no two snowflakes are alike, but what do we really know about them? Snowflakes always have six sides. Their form and shape depends on temperature and moisture. Snowflake shapes fall into six main categories: plate (flat), column, stars, dendrite (lacy), needle and capped column. When it is extremely cold, snow becomes fine and powdery and the snowflakes' design becomes simpler, usually needle or rod shaped. When the temperature is close to freezing point, snowflakes become much larger and more complex in design.

Eisenbeis, Superintendent of Conversation COYOTES IN COOK COUNTY One winter night, a Forest Preserve Ranger heard the yapping howl of some animal that made his hair stand on end. A few days later, a farmer in the Sag valley saw what appeared to be a wolf lope across a road. Finally, the ranger, concealed within sight of a faint path apparently used by wild dogs or foxes, shot a coyote. The little bunch of black bristles at the base of its tail, covering a scent gland beneath the skin identified it as being of the wolf family. The animal was sent to the Illinois Natural History Survey, at Urbana, where it was pronounced to be a prairie wolf (also known as the "brush" wolf). In the west it is generally known by its Spanish name: coyote.

I now submit to you that there is no way an electron machine designed for 1A could be limited to 1-2 mA, especially after such a long tuneup time, by misalignments, poor diagnostics, low injection energy, nor the low injector current. The aperture couldn't be wrong by more than a factor of 2-4 since the low current lifetime due to gas scattering is the calculated value. Other machines with low injection energy get hundreds of mA. A microtron current with 1 mA output should still allow accumulation of 50-100 mA in the ring. Low injection current then isn't the problem. I found the rapid change of lifetime with current

They spend more time out-of-doors. One of their most prized enjoyments is "coon hunting". It has all the drama and music of an opera. At dusk, raccoons come down from their den trees to feed and play. They are inquisitive animals and frequently travel quite a distance. So, on a warm damp night after a spell of freezing weather, a little group of neighbors may gather, with their hounds, to go coon hunting. On such nights raccoons are more active, their scent is more easily followed by the hounds, and the dogs can be heard from longer distances.

If you haven't heard of the Solar Decathlon, it's a competition held every two years that challenges 20 collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The teams assemble their houses in a village on the National Mall, where they compete in ten contests and open their houses to the public for tours. The next Solar Decathlon will take place in fall 2011, and though it's not front-page news right now, preparations for the 2011 event are well under way.

I want to thank Secretary O'Leary for her extraordinary devotion to this cause. And you heard in her remarks basically the way that she views this. It's a part of her ongoing commitment to finish the end of the Cold War. And perhaps no Energy Secretary has ever done as much as she has to be an advocate, whether it is for continued reforms within the Energy Department or her outspoken endorsement of the strongest possible commitment on the part of the United States to a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, which I believe we will achieve next year in no small measure thanks to the support of the Secretary of Energy.

Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation THE BOBOLINK Most of our songbirds nest and find their food in woodlands, along woodland borders, or in old orchards. Some, like the robins, house wrens, martins and bluebirds, usually prefer to live near human habitations -- even in villages and cities. Others, notably the redwing blackbird, are found only around marshes and swampy places. But there is a small group of songbirds which are seen and heard only in open country: prairies, meadows, hayfields and abandoned farm lands. In addition to some native sparrows, the horned lark, the killdeer and the familiar meadow larks, this group includes that happy-go-lucky "harlequin of the meadows": the Bobolink.

Litigant participation and success in water rights cases in the Western States  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Over the years, many decisions concerning the rights to water resources have been addressed in state legislatures and federal courts; however, the majority of decisions concerning the conflicting demands over water have been addressed in state courts. This study examines the body of water rights cases heard in state supreme courts of the eleven Western states and focus on litigant participation and success. The data set includes all the water rights cases decided between 1972 and 2008 in the eleven western state high courts (Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming). The study explores the propensity of different types of litigants to initiate water rights cases at the state supreme court level, and also examines litigation patterns to determine which litigants are the targets of these appeals. Galanter's (1974) party capability theory is used to help explain patterns of litigant success.

The sound quality of vehicle interior noise: a challenge for the NVH-engineers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The sound quality of vehicle interior noise has become a very important task for the acoustic engineers since more than 20 years. As vehicles become more and more quiet, the customer's sensitiveness for the acoustical comfort increases. On the one hand, no disturbing noises should be heard and on the other hand, the perceived sound quality, for example from the powertrain, should fulfill the expectations of the listener with respect to the sound design. The development of a good sound quality is in conflict with other targets. The development time of a new car has to be reduced and the production costs have to be lower, the total weight of the car should not increase ?? without any negative influence on the sound quality. For the acoustical engineer it becomes important to know what kind of tools are available to measure, to analyse and to describe sound quality on the one hand and how to improve it on the other hand.

A perfect match: Nuclear energy and the National Energy Strategy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the course of developing the National Energy Strategy, the Department of Energy held 15 public hearings, heard from more than 375 witnesses and received more than 1000 written comments. In April 1990, the Department published an Interim Report on the National Energy Strategy, which compiles those public comments. The National Energy Strategy must be based on actual experience and factual analysis of our energy, economic and environmental situation. This report by the Nuclear Power Oversight committee, which represents electric utilities and other organizations involved in supplying electricity from nuclear energy to the American people, provides such an analysis. The conclusions here are based on hard facts and actual worldwide experience. This analysis of all the available data supports -- indeed, dictates -- expanded reliance on nuclear energy in this nation's energy supply to achieve the President's goals. 33 figs.

AbstractObjective To evaluate the level of knowledge, attitude and practice towards breast cancer and breast self examination (BSE) among a sample of educated Iraqi population affiliated to Kirkuk University in Iraq. Methods The total number of participants was 304 (256 females and 48 males); comprising students (85.2%; n=259), teaching staff (8.2%; n=25) and administrative university staff (6.6%; n=20). The mean age of the participants was (23.88.3) years. Each was asked to complete a pre-coded standardized questionnaire. Variables were dichotomized and multiple logistic regressions were applied to test the association of independent variables with practicing BSE. Results It was observed that 177 (69.1%) of females have heard about the BSE. One hundred and nine of the female respondents (42.6%) reported that they have practiced BSE. Of those who have heard about BSE only 57.4% were in fact practicing the technique. Multiple logistic regression revealed that age of the respondents and knowledge on the means of early detection, the effect of nulliparity on the probability of contacting the disease and factors that could decrease the incidence of breast cancer were significantly associated with practicing BSE (P=0.019, 0.03, 0.03 and 0.007 respectively). Overall, it has been demonstrated that 89.7% of the female participants in this study presented a positive attitude towards learning the correct procedure of BSE with an intention to instruct others on the technique. Conclusions although the knowledge about breast cancer and practice of BSE was relatively weak in Kirkuk, probably attributable to the long standing conflicts in the city, yet the positive attitude towards learning the screening techniques and the intention to teach others were fairly encouraging. Knowledge and practice can be endorsed by promoting nationwide public health awareness campaigns and establishing sustained educational framework and policy guidelines.

Cultural intelligence support for military operations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

It has long been recognized that military success relies on knowledge of the enemy. In the context of standard warfare, adequate knowledge of the enemy may be gained by analyzing observable, measurable data. In the context of modern counterinsurgency operations and the global war on terror, the task of predicting the behavior of the enemy is vastly more complex and difficult. Without an understanding of the ways individuals in the host nation interpret and react to events, no amount of objective information can provide the insight required to accurately predict behavior. US military doctrine has begun to recognize the importance of the many ways that local culture can affect operation success. Increasingly military decision makers use cultural information in the service of operation planning, and troops are provided with pre-deployment cultural training. However, no amount of training can cover the breadth and depth of potentially useful cultural information, and no amount of careful planning can avoid the need to adapt as situations develop. Therefore, a critical challenge is to provide useful tools to US personnel in their efforts to collect, analyze, and utilize cultural information. Essential functions for cultural support tools include the following: (1) to narrow down a broad range of available data and focus the user's attention on context-relevant information, (2) to present cultural information in an easily understood form, (3) to prompt the user to seek relevant information in the environment, (4) to synthesize information, and (5) to predict outcomes based on possible courses of operation. In this paper, we begin by reviewing the ways in which military operations can benefit from cultural intelligence. We then discuss frameworks for analyzing cultural information in the context of a military operation. We conclude with a demonstration of our current efforts to develop a tool that meets the aforementioned functional challenges.

El Paso County Geothermal Electric Generation Project: Innovative Research  

Open Energy Info (EERE)

County Geothermal Electric Generation Project: Innovative Research County Geothermal Electric Generation Project: Innovative Research Technologies Applied to the Geothermal Resource Potential at Ft. Bliss Geothermal Project Jump to: navigation, search Last modified on July 22, 2011. Project Title El Paso County Geothermal Electric Generation Project: Innovative Research Technologies Applied to the Geothermal Resource Potential at Ft. Bliss Project Type / Topic 1 Recovery Act: Geothermal Technologies Program Project Type / Topic 2 Validation of Innovative Exploration Technologies Project Description A dynamic and technically capable project team has been assembled to evaluate the commercial viability of geothermal resources on the Ft. Bliss Military Reservation with a focus on the McGregor Test Range. Driving the desire of Ft. Bliss and El Paso County to assess the commercial viability of the geothermal resources are four factors that have converged in the last several years. The first is that Ft. Bliss will be expanding by nearly 30,000 additional troops, an expansion which will significantly increase utilization of energy resources on the facility. Second is the desire for both strategic and tactical reasons to identify and control a source of power than can directly provide the forward fire bases with "off grid" electricity in the event of a major power outage. In the worst case, this power can be sold to the grid and be used to reduce energy costs at the main Ft. Bliss installation in El Paso. Finally, Congress and the Department of Defense have mandated that Ft. Bliss and other military reservations obtain specified percentages of their power from renewable sources of production. The geothermal resource to be evaluated, if commercially viable, could provide Ft. Bliss with all the energy necessary to meet these goals now and in the future. To that end, the garrison commander has requested a target of 20 megawatts as an initial objective for geothermal resources on the installation. Finally, the County government has determined that it not only wishes to facility this effort by Ft. Bliss, but would like to reduce its own reliance on fossil based energy resources to provide power for current and future needs.

Pet House Sparrow Pet House Sparrow Name: mary Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: I found a Baby House Sparrow and raised it. This Sparrow is a female and is about 5 months old and very tame. We are keeping this bird as a pet. We are interested in possibly breeding this bird and was wondering if you can mix breed the House Sparrow with a Finch or type of Sparrow that you could purchase at a pet store? What is the life expectancy of the House Sparrow? Replies: In the wild most small birds only live a year or two; well cared for in captivity they might be able to make it twice that long, but don't count on it. There are some records of exceptional life lengths for some species of small birds, 8 or 10 years, but I haven't heard of any for house sparrows. I don't think you would be able to cross breed house sparrows with any of the others, but I couldn't say for sure. Hybridization normally occurs only between very closely related species; I don't know enough about genetics.

River River Nature Bulletin No. 22 July 7, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation OUR RIVER The people of Cook County are missing a bet. They are not using their DesPlaines River. The other day we took a boat trip down that river from Lake County to Lawndale Avenue in Summit. It being a week day, we saw few people other than an occasional fisherman or pairs of strolling boys. Except for a bridge now and then, there were no signs or sounds of civilization. Chicago might have been a thousand miles away. We rested. There was isolation. There was peace. Once in a while a heron flew ahead of us; or a squirrel scampered up a tree; once we saw a family of young muskrats playing around the entrance to their den in the bank; twice we saw and heard a wood duck; again and again big fish plowed ripples surging ahead of us. It was shady and cool and still beneath the arching trees. We thought of the centuries this river had traveled. We were babes nuzzling again at the breast of Mother Nature.

Male Development Male Development Name: Kurt Status: other Grade: other Location: Outside U.S. Country: Brazil Date: Spring 2012 Question: I heard that the male fetus has to go through stages to definitely become a male - that all fetuses are initially female, and that only after 8 weeks does the male fetus develop testicles, and that after that, I understand there are 3 more stages of development for the fetus to go through before definitely becoming male. What are these stages? Replies: Embryos are male or female from the moment of conception because they have either XX or XY chromosomes. But they don't start to develop their sexual phenotypes for about 6-8 weeks. Embryos have two nonspecific gonads and two sets of nonspecific tubes. If there is a Y chromosome, a gene called SRY turns on around 6-8 weeks and starts male development. The nonspecific gonads become testes and the tubes become the vas deferens. It causes the second set of tubes to degenerate. It also causes the testes to begin secreting testosterone which also adds to the masculine phenotype. There is a step by step process that happens. If there is a block in the process everything stops there. So some parts could develop and others not.For instance, internal structures might develop but external not. This would result in an ambiguous phenotype which may be mistaken for a female.

Grizzly and the Big Brown Bears Grizzly and the Big Brown Bears Nature Bulletin No. 655-A November 12, 1977 Forest Preserve District of Cook County George W. Dunne, President Roland F. Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation THE GRIZZLY AND THE BIG BROWN BEARS In the early days, more tall tales were told about "Old Ephraim, " the grizzly bear, than any other animal. It had the reputation of being a bloodthirsty enemy of man and was given the scientific name Ursus horribilis by a taxonomist who had never seen a live one but had heard and read some of those yarns about its terrible ferocity and prodigious strength. The Grizzly is very intelligent and shrewd but, actually, has a rather phlegmatic disposition. It avoids people and will not attack unless provoked. Then, a female with cubs is unpredictable, and big game hunters say that a wounded grizzly is the most dangerous animal on earth. But ordinarily, as Earnest Thompson Seton observed, Ephraim is a peaceful giant who is perfectly satisfied to let you alone if you leave him alone.

Medieval Names for Animals Medieval Names for Animals Nature Bulletin No. 449-A March 18, 1972 Forest Preserve District of Cook County George W. Dunne, President Roland F. Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation MEDIEVAL NAMES FOR ANIMALS The English language is a polyglot -- a confusion of several languages - - and it contains many words dating back to medieval times. Some of them are still in common use; some now have entirely different meanings; many have been forgotten; others are rarely heard but are defined, as archaic words, in the unabridged dictionaries. Recently the narrator on a television program, showing great numbers of wild beasts in Africa, used the expression: "a pride of lions". An acquaintance remembered having seen it in "Sir Nigel", a novel about the days when knighthood was in flower, written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who is famous for his stories about Sherlock Holmes. Searching through a copy of that book in a public library, we found two pages which contained many ancient terms for gatherings or numbers of animals, such as: "a pride of lions", "a cete of badgers", and a "swarm" or "skulk" of foxes.

Hackberry Hackberry Nature Bulletin No. 63 April 27, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation THE HACKBERRY The hackberry is the "unknown" tree. Most people never heard of it many mistake it for an elm, which it resembles. However, it has a distinctive bark, usually ashy gray, with rough warts and ridges. On many hackberries, mostly near the tips of the branches, there will be thick clusters of small twigs, resembling mistletoe from a distance, called "witches' brooms". These are not a natural growth, as many think, but are caused by a fungous infection. They do not hurt the tree seriously nor detract from its appearance, and more hackberries should be planted as ornamental shade trees instead of elms. They are hardy, grow well even in unfavorable conditions of soil and moisture, and are resistant to diseases and insect pests. Our elms, on the other hand, are dying by the hundreds in some localities -- in the east from Dutch elm disease; in the middle west from a virus disease for which no cure has been found.

Cattail Protection

Cattail Protection Cattail Protection Name: Julie Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: Is a piece of land protected by cattails protected? (Meaning you can not touch, cover up or build on.) Replies: Hi Julie, It's quite possible that a piece of land with cattails is protected as a wetland. There are some federal (and probably state) statutes on wetland protection, in general you have to file environmental impact statements and such. I've heard of cases where some large projects were allowed to encroach on wetlands when the builders signed contracts requiring they construct a wetland of equivalent size on another parcel of land. Donald Yee Ph.D. I assume you are referring to wetlands protections. Cattails are wetland plants, and there are regulations governing - but not necessarily preventing - the development of wetlands, but cattails are also aggressive and somewhat weedy, so I doubt the presence of cattails alone would be sufficient to call an area a wetland. This is a technical question which all too often lands in legal dispute. Check with the Corps of Engineers, the EPA, and other experts in wetlands delineation and regulation.

Pheasants Pheasants Nature Bulletin No. 59 March 30, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation PHEASANTS The cock pheasants are crowing. From daybreak until midmorning, and sometimes in the evening, they may be heard in the forest preserves. During the winter they congregated in small bands, the hens generally separate from the cocks. Now the bands are breaking up and each cock selects a "crowing area" of from 5 to 60 acres which he defends by fighting off other cocks. He attracts hens to his area by lusty crowing. When one appears he clucks and coaxes, picking out choice bits of food for her. Then he begins to strut his stuff, erecting his ear-tufts and preening his gorgeous plumage, walking around with stiff arrogant steps and an exaggerated bobbing motion. If a successful fighter, he may acquire and hold a harem of as many as 8 hens which he protects until the end of the nesting season. If repeatedly whipped, he may become a wandering bachelor. Exit crowing.

Chlorophyll Chlorophyll Nature Bulletin No. 557-A March 8, 1975 Forest Preserve District of Cook County George W. Dunne, President Roland F. Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation CHLOROPHYLL Most people have heard of Chlorophyll. In past years a number of products were widely advertised as preventives of tooth decay and bad breath because they contained this substance. We have been told that it is responsible for the green color in the leaves of trees, the grass on our lawns, and the weeds in our gardens. What is this mysterious "green stuff". Scientists know that chlorophyll is a complex chemical found as a green pigment in almost all green plants from the simple one-celled algae to those that have flowers and bear seeds. Further, that it enables them, with the aid of energy from sunlight, to manufacture their own foods from inorganic materials such as air, water and minerals -- and grow! But nobody knows exactly how this is done. It is one of the mysteries of life on this planet.

A model for life cycle records management  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The primary objective of this paper is to update an old Records Management concept; the management of records according to the records life cycle. Accordingly, the authors are presenting a new version of the Records Management life cycle model and its associated elements. The basic concept is that every record progresses through three phases; a record is created, is used and maintained, and dispositioned. In this presentation, the authors update the very old straight line model and the more current circular model with a new model that essentially combines the two. The model portrays Records Management as having a distinct straight-line beginning, a circular use and maintenance phase, and a distinct straight-line end. The presentation maps Records Management Program elements and activities against the phases depicted in the model. The authors believe that this new records life cycle model is an enhanced physical representation of the process. This presentation is designed to help put all of the specialized Records Management topics that participants have heard about during the conference in the perspective of the records life cycle.

Public perception of the nuclear area in Brazil  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In Brazil electricity production is proving increasingly important, the Brazilian government has recently launched the National Energy Plan, PNE-2030 which aims, among other objectives, to conclude construction of the Angra 3 plant and to deploy new nuclear power plants in the Northeast region. The Brazilian government wants to assess how the public has perceived its energy policy and what the public thinks about the nuclear issue. A public opinion survey was performed and sampling resulted in 127 respondents who were stratified by gender, age and educational level. The survey results show that although most respondents have post-graduate degrees, 64.6% are not aware of, or had never heard of PNE-2030. While 72 respondents consider nuclear energy as an alternative source of clean energy, 84 respondents did not know where the next Brazilian nuclear power plant will be built. The nuclear regulator, CNEN, is seen by 45.7% of respondents as the body that has most credibility to talk about the safety of nuclear power plants and the media most used to obtain information about the nuclear area were newspapers and discussion forums, with 52 and 50 votes respectively. These results prove the need to implement communication plans with clear and concise goals for different segments of society, since the degree of understanding differs within each segment.

Comparison of measurement indices of noise intrusions in multi?family housing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Methods for measuring sound levels associated with transportation impact and airborne sound intrusions in multi?family housing are well established in the field. This paper compares field testing of assemblies where complaints and retrofits have been involved where traditional assessments of intruding noises showed compliance with design criteria but where residents and/or building owners perceived problems. Case study 1 involves noise from airplanes approaching a runway at a large international airport as heard in an all?glass high?rise condominium evaluated by LDNs and SELs of actual flyovers in computer models and in a full size mock?up of a typical unit built on site. Case study 2 involves noise from outdoor amplified entertainment propagating into neighborhoods as evaluated by various noise ordinance criteria. Case study 3 involves footstep noise through flooring systems comparing IIC ratings with actual sound pressure levels of people walking on floors above. Case study 4 compares noise and vibration levels for various pieces of mechanical equipment before and after retrofit with NC RC and other room criteria. Auralizations of the case studies will be shown along with measurement data to illustrate the diagnostics made in each case.

Upgrading secret military facilitiesWhat is more important, acoustic design standards or acoustical performance?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The U.S. Department of Defense has developed acoustical performance standards that are to be achieved in the design and construction of meeting and conference rooms where sensitive and secret information will be discussed. These performance standards rely on published acoustical industry design data which are readily available. The intention of these standards is to prevent sensitive and secret information from being heard understood or otherwise obtained by persons or devices that are not authorized to have access to such information. This paper presents design and field performance test results for new and renovated secret rooms that initially passed the acoustical design criteria and acoustical standard field tests but failed to provide the desired secret level acoustical performance. Further investigations and research into partition component and building composite performance indicated that floors walls ceilings doors windows and perimeter penetrations by conduit and HVAC ducting which individually met the design standards and when installed meet the design standards but as a composite did not provide the intended acoustical performance that would prevent unauthorized access to sensitive and secret information by persons or devices outside the designated perimeter. Reasons for certain performance failures are discussed and specific successful remedies are presented.

Falling stars: Acoustic influences on meteor detection  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

As particles enter the earth's atmosphere they produce a burst of electromagnetic energy including visible and radio-wave emissions. Consequently just as meteors can be detected visually in the night sky they can be heard using radio telescopes. The current project investigated the potential influence of these audio signals on meteor detection. Anecdotally and in related research it has been found that auditory signals can enhance or even alter visual perception of objects. The current project examined the specific effects of accompanying auditory signals on the detection of meteors. Meteors present an interesting case of audiovisual integration in that detection paradigms often entail extended vigilance and extremely brief yet brilliant astronomical events. Experiments specifically investigated how auditory signals that varied in spectra influenced changes in visual magnitude and duration judgments of meteors. In addition research targeted how extraneous auditory cues during a vigilant meteor search might contribute to false judgments. Results are described in terms of audiovisual integration and the relation of perceptual mechanisms to meteor detection.

Report of the Fuel Cycle Research and Development Subcommittee of the Nuclear Energy Advisory Committee  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Fuel Cycle (FC) Subcommittee of NEAC met February 7-8, 2012 in Washington (Drs. Hoffmann and Juzaitis were unable to attend). While the meeting was originally scheduled to occur after the submission of the Presidents FY 2013 budget, the submission was delayed a week; thus, we could have no discussion on balance in the NE program. The Agenda is attached as Appendix A. The main focus of the meeting was on accident tolerant fuels, an important post Fukushima issue, and on issues related to the report of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Americas Nuclear Future (BRC) as related to the responsibility for used fuel disposal which was assigned to the FC program with the end of the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management. In addition we heard an update on the systems study program which is aimed at helping chose the best options for advanced reactors, and possible new study on separation and waste form relevance to used fuel disposal (these two items are only discussed in this section of the report).

Panel discussion: Lessons learned at The Geysers and the next steps  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

During the last part of this morning session, we will be discussing joint DOE-industry research and development efforts on The Geysers geothermal field. I have asked five panelists to oversee discussions, three from industry and two from DOE- supported research organizations. They are Paul Hirtz from ThermoChem Inc., Keshav Goyal from Calpine Corporation, Ben Barker from Unocal Corporation Geothermal, Jeff Hulen from the Earth Sciences and Research Institute (ESRI) of the University of Utah, and Collin Williams from the Geological Survey (USGS). As was mentioned earlier during this meeting, up to now DOE has spent about $12.2 million in Geysers research-related projects and another $7 million for the Lake County pipeline. On the other hand, industry has spent large amounts of money to keep The Geysers project going. The discussions will be based on the personal experiences of the Panel members, on what we heard today as well as in previous meetings, and on what we read in the Research Program Update that was distributed as part of the registration package. On the basis of what we learned, we will attempt to identify the joint DOE-Industry Geysers research that should be done in the future.

The opinions of secondary school students in Turkey regarding renewable energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the opinions of secondary school students in Turkey regarding renewable energy resources. To this end, a 26-item questionnaire, developed by K?l?n etal. [1], was administered to a total of 445 students in seventh and eighth grades. In addition, three open-ended questions were asked of the students in order to determine their level of knowledge regarding renewable energy resources and power stations. The study data were analyzed using the SPSS statistical package program. The study results revealed that most students first heard about the concept of renewable energy when they were in secondary school (55.7%) and elementary school (24.5%). In addition, the students generally knew about renewable energy sources and their importance, although they lacked knowledge about certain aspects of renewable energy. Furthermore, the students were, in general, of the opinion that electricity from renewable energy resources is cheap, reliable, and fully replenishable; that power stations producing electricity from these energy sources are generally safe and harmless to living organisms; and that their use does not contribute to global warming.

Measurements of the self?to?other ratio in an opera chorus in performance  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The objective of this study was to obtain measurements of the self?to?other ratio (SOR) in the opera chorus on stage. Four members of the opera chorus of Opera Australia volunteered to carry wireless binaural microphones during a dress rehearsal of Verdis The Masked Ball in the Sydney Opera House. Conditions were those of actual performance in costume with soloists and orchestra. Hence the recordings are very realistic if acoustically not so stringently controlled. The SOR was estimated from the recordings using M/S matrixing complemented with LR correlation by adaptive filtering. The results indicate how much louder the singers heard themselves relative to the rest of the ensemble including the orchestra. The SOR varied with score and on?stage formation but was 48 dB higher than in ordinary choirs (not opera) as might be expected from the podium acoustics. While each opera chorus artist can hear his or her own voice very well they often hear less of the rest of the chorus and very little of the orchestra. This was borne out in informal listening; the orchestra often became inaudible once the choir entered its louder passages. [Work supported by the Australian Research Council under the SPIRT program.

Dynamics of Snapping Beams and Jumping Poppers  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We consider the dynamic snapping instability of elastic beams and shells. Using the Kirchhoff rod and F\\"{o}ppl-von K\\'{a}rm\\'{a}n plate equations, we study the stability, deformation modes, and snap-through dynamics of an elastic arch with clamped boundaries and subject to a concentrated load. For parameters typical of everyday and technological applications of snapping, we show that the stretchability of the arch plays a critical role in determining not only the post-buckling mode of deformation but also the timescale of snapping and the frequency of the arch's vibrations about its final equilibrium state. We show that the growth rate of the snap-through instability and its subsequent ringing frequency can both be interpreted physically as the result of a sound wave in the material propagating over a distance comparable to the length of the arch. Finally, we extend our analysis of the ringing frequency of indented arches to understand the `pop' heard when everted shell structures snap-through to their stable state. Remarkably, we find that not only are the scaling laws for the ringing frequencies in these two scenarios identical but also the respective prefactors are numerically close; this allows us to develop a master curve for the frequency of ringing in snapping beams and shells.

Underwater, low-frequency noise in a coastal sea turtle habitat  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Underwater sound was recorded in one of the major coastal foraging areas for juvenile sea turtles in the Peconic Bay Estuary system in Long Island New York. The recording season of the underwater environment coincided with the sea turtle activity season in an inshore area where there is considerable boating and recreational activity especially during the summer between Independence Day and Labor Day. Within the range of sea turtle hearing average noisepressure reached 110 dB during periods of high human activity and diminished proportionally down to 80 dB with decreasing human presence. Therefore during much of the season when sea turtles are actively foraging in New York waters their coastal habitats are flooded with underwater noise. During the period of highest human activity average noisepressures within the range of frequencies heard by sea turtles were greater by over two orders of magnitude (26 dB) than during the lowest period of human activity. Sea turtles undoubtedly are exposed to high levels of noise most of which is anthropogenic. Results suggest that continued exposure to existing high levels of pervasive anthropogenic noise in vital sea turtle habitats and any increase in noise could affect sea turtle behavior and ecology.

November 17, 2010 - 5:32pm Addthis When I think of wind technology, an image comes to mind of a towering fleet of turbines. Although I've never seen a wind farm up close, I've heard from several people that it's an awe-inspiring sight. I may not have the chance to see a large-scale wind farm anytime soon, but I have had the opportunity to examine a small wind energy system-an alternative source of energy that can fully or partially provide power for the home. During a recent visit to the U.S Botanic Gardens (USBG) in Washington, D.C., I noticed a vertical wind turbine on display. This single turbine, relatively small in stature, provides up to 2,000 kilowatt hours per year

Human Error Human Error QuarkNet Workshop for High School Science Teachers 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, August 1 -3, 2012 at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory This was a three-day workshop for high school science teachers. Measurement and error are key ingredients for all science applications. Both align with the Next Generation Science Standards, but many high school students struggle to understand the importance of error analysis and prevention. Over the three days we examined multiple experiments going on at Fermilab and discussed the ways that scientists take measurements and reduce error on these projects. Participants met and worked with scientists from Fermilab and University of Chicago to look at how error analysis takes place at Fermilab and bridged those ideas into high school classes. Teachers discussed lesson plans available at Fermilab and their own methods of teaching error analysis. Additionally, participants heard from high school students who participated in summer research as they presented their findings and linked students' learning back to the teachers' understanding of error recognition and analysis.

So here is a post wherein I will be strangely particular about setting the temperature on your thermostat. You often hear about how you should turn down the thermostat to save energy, and there are a slew of helpful ideas on the subject. I'm sure you've heard some of them right here on this blog: You can turn the thermostat down when you're out, when you're sleeping, and you can save about 1% on your energy bill per degree you turn your thermostat down! This is all very exciting. But before you go crazy with turning down the thermostat really low, I'd

DNA's Role with Proteins

DNA's Role with Proteins DNA's Role with Proteins Name: Hans Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: Is it sure that the most important information of living cells is stored in the DNA? DNA seems to be nothing more than an inventory of useful proteins and a tool to create those proteins. Could it be that more important operational know how of how these proteins interact to build a living organism is actually located in the rest of the cell? So that the rest of the cell is the most important inheritance, whereas DNA merely takes care of the genetic variation? Replies: DNA is the entire library of protein information for an organism. All seven types of protein. It is true that in developmental stages of an organism that the presence and absences of certain proteins and other chemicals generated by proteins will influence what the DNA in a "particular" cell will express. Hence, you can start out with one cell and end up with a complex organism. You may have heard some of this information with the cloning activities that have been going on lately. All the inheritance comes from the DNA, but what parts of the DNA expression may be dictated by the cells special characteristics developed upon specializing. In that way the liver cells will only do "liver" things and the kidney cells will only do "kidney" things, BUT they use the same DNA information to operate, just a different portion of the same DNA that pertains to their particular "job". If you can convince a cell that it does not have a special job anymore, then you can develop the entire organism from this cell with the right signals; this is what cloning techniques have done!

BNL Hosts Internal Workshop on Future of NSLS-II BNL Hosts Internal Workshop on Future of NSLS-II About 125 Brookhaven Laboratory and Stony Brook University scientists and staff participated in an internal workshop to learn about the status and plans for the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) on Wednesday, May 18, 2011, at BNL. The workshop's purpose was to help us identify strategies for developing and enhancing research programs in the different areas of science at BNL and SBU that will benefit from NSLS-II's capabilities. Attendees heard overview talks on the Laboratory's general vision and strategy, including the role of NSLS-II, a summary of NSLS-II status and plans, and a summary of the current state of the Lab's and SBU's science and technology (S&T) research interests (and collaborations) in using NSLS-II. During subsequent breakout sessions, workshop leaders solicited input for inclusion in the emerging strategies for developing, evolving, and positioning research programs to take maximum advantage of NSLS-II. Development of these strategies is being facilitated by a working group drawn from across BNL and SBU, including Allen Orville (ELS), Lisa Miller (PSD), Ron Pindak (PSD), Qun Shen (PSD), John Hill (BES), Jason Graetz (ST), Jose Rodriguez (BES), Lynne Ecker (GARS), Jeff Fitts (ELS), Ben Hsiao (SBU), Bob Haltiwanger (SBU), John Parise (SBU) and Doon Gibbs. The working group subsequently gathered the input from the breakout sessions and developed strategies for the further refinement of the developing NSLS-II based research programs as a part of the Laboratory's strategy for achieving its S&T missions. The results are presented here.

Piercing ear cartilage

Piercing ear cartilage Piercing ear cartilage Name: Mark Reynolds Status: N/A Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: My name is Mark Reynolds. I have heard that there is a nerve in the cartilage area of the ear. My question is as follows: If you pierce your ear(s) and do hit the nerve, could permanent paralysis or brain damage occur? Thank you. Replies: No. Basically nerves serve two purposes: gathering information from the senses (sensory nerves) and controlling muscles (motor nerves). If you damage a sensory nerve, then that nerve can't send messages to the brain, but this will not damage the brain. If you damage a motor nerve then the brain can't send messages to a muscle and indeed paralysis occurs. But nerves are laid out sensibly, that is, nerves do not go from your brain through your earlobe and then on to your leg or arm. Damaging a motor nerve in your ear won't affect anything other than your ear muscles, if there are any. Paralysis is usually temporary if motor nerve damage occurs outside of the spinal cord, since the main body of the motor nerve cells are in the spinal cord and the "axons" connecting them to the muscles can regrow (about a millimeter a day). If nerve cell bodies themselves are damaged by injury to the spinal cord they may recover and paralysis go away. This may also happen even if nerve cells are killed, as long as not too many are, and other cells can take over. But if too many are killed paralysis is permanent, since nerve cells never reproduce.

Proceedings: Electric dehumidification: State-of-the-art humidity control for supermarkets seminar  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

On October 9--10 1990, EPRI sponsored a conference in New Orleans, Louisiana on Electric Dehumidification: State of the Art Humidity Control for Supermarkets. The conference was attended by 124 electric utility, manufacturer, supermarket industry and consultant representatives. Attendees heard 17 speakers address efficient electric technologies for controlling relative humidity, and the importance of humidity control in the supermarket environment. Speakers addressed efficient electric technologies as well as gas desiccant systems. The management of energy use in supermarkets is a complex task. Energy costs are a major part of the supermarket operating budget, and the supermarket business is one where small differences in operating costs can make the difference between profit and loss. Energy use is dominated by refrigeration and HVAC, and the control of energy costs is dependent on the successful management of the interaction between these two systems. Humidity control in supermarkets is critical because of the presence of refrigerated display cases. Excess humidity causes display case fixture sweating and refrigeration coil and product frosting, requires frequent defrosting, and increased energy use for antisweat heaters and refrigeration. The conventional approach to dehumidification in an all-electric system is overcooling to condense moisture and reheat to bring the air to a comfortable temperature. This approach, while effective in less demanding environments, results in high electric energy costs for the humidity control necessary in supermarkets. Speakers in the introductory session of the conference explained the importance of electric energy for the supermarket; discussed modern refrigeration systems; and set the stage for more detailed discussion of specific dehumidification systems.

What is a supermaterial?  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

On rare occasions, the coining of a new term brings new ideas to a field by virtue of a shift in viewpoint. A recent example is complexity, which collected together, from a core of deep results in mathematics and hydrodynamics, a clan of fields whose kinship had been revealed by the new term itself. More often such appellations merely follow fashionable trends. So it took courage on the part of the founders of SUPERMAT to promote their vision. Marcel Ausloos (Universite de Liege, Belgium) and Gilbert Vacquier (Universite de Marseille, France) have shown us a way to resonate as a new chord in materials science. As the first conference on supermaterials, SUPERMAT and its companion SMART 99 have begun to reveal new branches of research from the established pathways explored in superconductivity. At the conclusion of SUPERMAT in Giens, France, the participants were as energized by the exciting science that had been covered during the week as they were impressed by the French food, wine, scenery and hospitality. If the definition of a supermaterial is not obvious now-after the conference-it was certainly not obvious before it. Nevertheless, the conferees were drawn inexorably together by the conference theme. Perhaps it is not appropriate to try to understand this self organization, which surely is even more complex than the self organization of electrons in a high temperature superconductor, the theory for which still eludes us after 13 years! A clue to the working definition of a supermaterial can be derived empirically from the topics that were discussed at SUPERMAT and SMART 99. In addition to superconductors, they heard about magnetic effects of many kinds, including giant and even colossal ones that presumably trump super ones, organic conductors, photoconductors, and even four-hundred-year-old Japanese ceramics. Topics discussed were synthesis, processing, characterization and theory, and applications.

Cryogenics Vision Workshop for High-Temperature Superconducting Electric Power Systems Proceedings  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The US Department of Energy's Superconductivity Program for Electric Systems sponsored the Cryogenics Vision Workshop, which was held on July 27, 1999 in Washington, D.C. This workshop was held in conjunction with the Program's Annual Peer Review meeting. Of the 175 people attending the peer review meeting, 31 were selected in advance to participate in the Cryogenics Vision Workshops discussions. The participants represented cryogenic equipment manufactures, industrial gas manufacturers and distributors, component suppliers, electric power equipment manufacturers (Superconductivity Partnership Initiative participants), electric utilities, federal agencies, national laboratories, and consulting firms. Critical factors were discussed that need to be considered in describing the successful future commercialization of cryogenic systems. Such systems will enable the widespread deployment of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) electric power equipment. Potential research, development, and demonstration (RD and D) activities and partnership opportunities for advancing suitable cryogenic systems were also discussed. The workshop agenda can be found in the following section of this report. Facilitated sessions were held to discuss the following specific focus topics: identifying Critical Factors that need to be included in a Cryogenics Vision for HTS Electric Power Systems (From the HTS equipment end-user perspective) identifying R and D Needs and Partnership Roles (From the cryogenic industry perspective) The findings of the facilitated Cryogenics Vision Workshop were then presented in a plenary session of the Annual Peer Review Meeting. Approximately 120 attendees participated in the afternoon plenary session. This large group heard summary reports from the workshop session leaders and then held a wrap-up session to discuss the findings, cross-cutting themes, and next steps. These summary reports are presented in this document. The ideas and suggestions raised during the Workshop will be used by the DOE Superconductivity Program for Electric Systems in preparing subsequent planning and strategy documents such as a Cryogenic Technology Development Roadmap.

ATBMs and Western security  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Does Europe need missile defenses The question is still urgent. In assembling our study group to address these matters, we brought together experts with long experience in military and alliance affairs, and our purposes were wider than just subjecting the ATBM issue to thorough examination. Unavoidably, any Alliance discussion of ATBMs would heighten awareness that each ally faces grave dangers and accepts risks on behalf of all, yet no two allies confront precisely the same risks. We judged it important, therefore, that voices from many corners of the Alliance be heard on the ATBM issue and that Europeans and Americans together search out common grounds for discourse an decisions on whether NATO would be better off in a world of missile defenses. Accordingly, we invited both U.S. and European experts to be study participants and arranged for a vigorous and candid exchange of views in a set of workshops held in the United States and Britain. And recognizing the American proclivity for discussing such issues primarily in technical terms, and a European inclination to view them as quintessentially political, we sought out participants who could move with ease between both realms. Finally, when our group members were drafting the papers that follow in this book, we encouraged them not to understate the complexities of the ATBM issues, but at the same time to present those complexities in terms accessible to the wider publics who will share the benefits and bear the burdens of Alliance decisions on ATBMs. We hope the reader will agree that the study group performed its tasks well and that this was indeed a fruitful transatlantic collaboration.

FINAL BOMB DESIGN (Los Alamos: Laboratory, 1944-1945) Events > Bringing It All Together, 1942-1945 Establishing Los Alamos, 1942-1943 Early Bomb Design, 1943-1944 Basic Research at Los Alamos, 1943-1944 Implosion Becomes a Necessity, 1944 Oak Ridge and Hanford Come Through, 1944-1945 Final Bomb Design, 1944-1945 Atomic Rivals and the ALSOS Mission, 1938-1945 Espionage and the Manhattan Project, 1940-1945 American troops approaching the beach, D-Day, June 6, 1944. Late in 1944, Los Alamos began to shift from research to development and bomb production. Increased production at Oak Ridge and Hanford seemed to promise that enough plutonium and enriched uranium would be available for at least one bomb using each. Germany no longer was the intended primary target. The war in Europe (left) appeared to be entering its final phase, and evidence uncovered by the ALSOS mission in November 1944 indicated that the German atomic program had not gone beyond the research phase. Already by summer 1944, Groves and his advisers had turned their sights toward Japan. The atomic bomb would justify the years of effort, including both the vast expenditures and the judgment of everyone responsible, by bringing the war in the Pacific to a fiery end. J. Robert Oppenheimer Ongoing problems continued to complicate the efforts of Robert Oppenheimer (right) to finalize bomb design. Foremost among these were continuing personnel shortages, particularly of physicists, and supply difficulties. The procurement system, designed to protect the secrecy of the Los Alamos project, led to frustrating delays and, when Herb Lehr, SED, holding the Gadget's core, July 1945. combined with persistent late war shortages, proved a constant headache. The lack of contact between the remote laboratory and its supply sources exacerbated the problem, as did the relative lack of experience the academic scientists had with logistical matters. Leslie Groves and James Conant were determined not to let mundane problems compromise the bomb effort, and in fall 1944 they made several changes to prevent this possibility. Conant shipped as many scientists as could be spared from the Met Lab and Oak Ridge to Los Alamos, hired every civilian machinist he could lay his hands on, and arranged for Army enlisted men to supplement the work force (these GIs were known as SEDS ("Special Engineering Detachment"). Hartley Rowe, an experienced industrial engineer, provided help in easing the transition from research to production. Los Alamos also arranged for a rocket research team at the California Institute of Technology to aid in procurement, test fuses, and contribute to component development. These changes kept Los Alamos on track as design work reached its final stages.

U.S. Transport Task Force Meeting - April 2014 Final Report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The ultimate goal of the U.S. Transport Task Force is to develop a physics-based understanding of confinement and particle, momentum and heat transport in magnetic fusion devices. This understanding should be of sufficient depth that it allows the development of predictive models of plasma transport that can be validated against experiment, and then used to anticipate the future performance of burning plasmas in ITER, as well as to provide guidance to the design of next-step fusion nuclear science facilities. To achieve success in transport science, it is essential to characterize local fluctuations and transport in toroidal plasmas, to understand the basic mechanisms responsible for transport, and ultimately to control these transport processes. These goals must be pursued in multiple areas, including ion and electron thermal transport, particle and momentum transport, the physics of H-modes and the edge pedestal, Internal Transport Barriers, energetic particle transport and 3D effects on all the underlying transport processes. Demonstrating our understanding requires multiple, successful, quantitative tests of theory, simulation and modeling using experimental results in fusion-relevant and basic plasmas (i.e., verification and validation). The 2014 U.S. TTF meeting was held in April 2014 in San Antonio TX to provide a forum for leading scientists focused on the study of transport of particles, momentum and heat in fusion plasmas. Approximately 110 scientists from the US and several from the EU and from China attended and heard oral talks on recent transport results. Several poster sessions were also held. One day of plenary talks were followed by Breakout sessions and poster sessions that were held on focused topics, including L-H transition physics, energetic particles, transport in high performance plasmas, divertor particle and heat flux management and innovative divertor designs, fundamental turbulence studies, end edge transport shortfall. Most of the invited oral talks are archived at the meeting website, see http://ttf2014.ucsd.edu/TTF_2014/Presentations.html A book of abtracts for all presentations and posters at the meeting is also available, see http://ttf2014.ucsd.edu/TTF_2014/Home_files/TTF%202014%20Abstract%20Book%20Final.pdf Finally the program for the meeting is also available, see http://ttf2014.ucsd.edu/TTF_2014/Home_files/TTF%202014%20Meeting%20Schedule.pdf

Radiological Risk Assessment for King County Wastewater Treatment Division  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Staff of the King County Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) have concern about the aftermath of a radiological dispersion event (RDE) leading to the introduction of significant quantities of radioactive material into the combined sanitary and storm sewer system in King County, Washington. Radioactive material could come from the use of a radiological dispersion device (RDD). RDDs include "dirty bombs" that are not nuclear detonations but are explosives designed to spread radioactive material (National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) 2001). Radioactive material also could come from deliberate introduction or dispersion of radioactive material into the environment, including waterways and water supply systems. This document develops plausible and/or likely scenarios, including the identification of likely radioactive materials and quantities of those radioactive materials to be involved. These include 60Co, 90Sr, 137Cs, 192Ir, 226Ra, plutonium, and 241Am. Two broad categories of scenarios are considered. The first category includes events that may be suspected from the outset, such as an explosion of a "dirty bomb" in downtown Seattle. The explosion would most likely be heard, but the type of explosion (e.g., sewer methane gas or RDD) may not be immediately known. Emergency first responders must be able to quickly detect the radioisotopes previously listed, assess the situation, and deploy a response to contain and mitigate (if possible) detrimental effects resulting from the incident. In such scenarios, advance notice of about an hour or two might be available before any contaminated wastewater reaches a treatment plant. The second category includes events that could go initially undetected by emergency personnel. Examples of such a scenario would be the inadvertent or surreptitious introduction of radioactive material into the sewer system. Intact rogue radioactive sources from industrial radiography devices, well-logging apparatus, or moisture density gages may get into wastewater and be carried to a treatment plant. Other scenarios might include a terrorist deliberately putting a dispersible radioactive material into wastewater. Alternatively, a botched terrorism preparation of an RDD may result in radioactive material entering wastewater without anyone's knowledge. Drinking water supplies may also be contaminated, with the result that some or most of the radioactivity ends up in wastewater.

Community Surveys: Low Dose Radiation. Fernald, Ohio and Rocky Flats, Colorado  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report is intended to present a basic description of the data from the two community surveys and to document the text of the questions; the methods used for the survey data collection; and a brief overview of the results. Completed surveys were conducted at local communities near the Rocky Flats, Colorado and the Fernald, Ohio sites; no survey was conducted for the Brookhaven, New York site. Fernald. The Fernald sample was randomly selected from 98% of all potential residential telephones in the townships of Ross, Morgan, and Crosby. The only telephone exchanges not used for the Fernald study had 4%, or fewer, of the holders of the telephone numbers actually living in either of the three target townships. Surveying started on July 24, 2001 and finished on August 30, 2001. A total of 399 completed interviews were obtained resulting in a CASRO response rate of 41.8%. The average length of an interview was 16.5 minutes. Rocky Flats. The sample was randomly selected from all potential residential telephones in Arvada and from 99% of the potential telephones in Westminster. Surveying started on August 10, 2001 and finished on September 25, 2001. A total of 401 completed interviews were obtained with a CASRO response rate of 32.5%. The average length of an interview was 15.7 minutes. Overall, respondents hold favorable views of science. They indicate an interest in developments in science and technology, feel that the world is better off because of science, and that science makes our lives healthier, easier, and more comfortable. However, respondents are divided on whether science should decide what is safe or not safe for themselves and their families. The majority of the respondents think that standards for exposure to radiation should be based on what science knows about health effects of radiation and on what is possible with today's technology. Although few respondents had visited the sites, most had heard or read something about Fernald or Rocky Flat s in the media. Impressions of the sites tend to be negative. Most respondents feel that overall their community would be better off without the site. However, when asked about the economic future of their community after cleanup and closure of the site, only 31-43% thought that it will be better, 47-56% thought their local economy will be about the same.

Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHC - Last Call for Predictions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In August 2006, the CERN Theory Unit announced to restructure its visitor program and to create a 'CERN Theory Institute', where 1-3 month long specific programs can take place. The first such Institute was held from 14 May to 10 June 2007, focusing on 'Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHC - Last Call for Predictions'. It brought together close to 100 scientists working on the theory of ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions. The aim of this workshop was to review and document the status of expectations and predictions for the heavy ion program at the Large Hadron Collider LHC before its start. LHC will explore heavy ion collisions at {approx} 30 times higher center of mass energy than explored previously at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider RHIC. So, on the one hand, the charge of this workshop provided a natural forum for the exchange of the most recent ideas, and allowed to monitor how the understanding of heavy ion collisions has evolved in recent years with the data from RHIC, and with the preparation of the LHC experimental program. On the other hand, the workshop aimed at a documentation which helps to distinguish pre- from post-dictions. An analogous documentation of the 'Last Call for Predictions' [1] was prepared prior to the start of the heavy-ion program at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider RHIC, and it proved useful in the subsequent discussion and interpretation of RHIC data. The present write-up is the documentation of predictions for the LHC heavy ion program, received or presented during the CERN TH Institute. The set-up of the CERN TH Institute allowed us to aim for the wide-most coverage of predictions. There were more than 100 presentations and discussions during the workshop. Moreover, those unable to attend could still participate by submitting predictions in written form during the workshop. This followed the spirit that everybody interested in making a prediction had the right to be heard. To arrive at a concise document, we required that each prediction should be summarized on at most two pages, and that predictions should be presented, whenever possible, in figures which display measurable quantities. Full model descriptions were not accepted--the authors were encouraged to indicate the relevant references for the interested reader. Participants had the possibility to submit multiple contributions on different topics, but it was part of the subsequent editing process to ensure that predictions on neighboring topics were merged wherever possible. The contributions summarized here are organized in several sections,--though some of them contain material related with more than one section--roughly by going from low transverse momentum to high transverse momentum and from abundant to rare measurements. In the low transverse momentum regime, we start with predictions on multiplicity distributions, azimuthal asymmetries in particle production and hadronic flavor observables, followed by correlation and fluctuation measurements. The contributions on hard probes at the LHC start with predictions for single inclusive high transverse momentum spectra, and jets, followed by heavy quark and quarkonium measurements, leptonic probes and photons. A final section 'Others' encompasses those predictions which do not fall naturally within one of the above-mentioned categories, or discuss the more speculative phenomena that may be explored at the LHC.

The role of the SRPa forward look  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

What follows are my own views which do not necessarily agree with those of SRP Council. We have heard much recently about the changing role of the radiation protection professional. How does the SRP fit into this? It is important that SRP not only keeps abreast of developments, but also makes a contribution to those developments. The SRP is not a revolutionary organisation but has evolved and continues to evolve to meet changing circumstances. Its basic aims have changed little but the emphasis and implementation of those aims has moved on. A brief history may help to put the current and possible future role of the SRP into context. Next year's AGM will see the 40th anniversary of the Society. It started as the UK section of the Health Physics Society (HPS) in May 1963. After some two and a half years it broke away as the Society for Radiological Protection. Initial aims as a branch of the HPS included: to hold scientific meetings; to forge links with other UK societies with interests in radiation protection; and to forge links with other national societies in Europe. Its stated aims on becoming independent were `to aid in the development of the scientific, technological, medical and legal aspects of radiological protection, including nuclear safety and allied subjects in the manner of a learned society and to promote and improve radiological protection as a profession'. The current objectives of the Society are: (a) to promote and advance the science and art of radiological protection and allied fields; (b) to promote, advance and disseminate, to the public advantage, knowledge of radiological protection and allied fields; (c) to encourage, support, promote and advance education and learning in radiological protection and allied fields; and (d) to promote and encourage high scientific, educational, regulatory and professional standards in radiological protection and allied fields. The Society sets out to achieve its objectives in a number of ways. I will consider these under the following headings: Scientific meetings Publications Communications Qualifications and professional recognition Influence International matters Awards Structure of the Society. Scientific meetings From the beginning the SRP has normally held three to four, normally one-day, scientific meetings each year. In recent years the meeting associated with the AGM has often been a two-day, and last year for the first time, a three-day meeting. The AGM meeting and one other are now normally held outside London. Week-long international meetings are arranged every four years where possible. These meetings have covered a wide range of topics and are aimed at advancing radiological protection and educating those attending. The Scientific Programme Committee and Council continually review the meeting arrangements. In recent years the main meetings have been supplemented by workshops, road shows (e.g. to consult and provide information on the Ionising Radiations Regulations, IRRs) and local meetings. The content of meetings has changed to reflect the interests at the time. Early meetings were mainly concerned with technical matters while modern meetings are often more concerned with social and regulatory issues. A major benefit of meetings is that it allows people to meet and talk informally outside the meeting proper. I see meetings continuing much as at present but the frequency, duration, content and location are constantly being reviewed. Publications From 196780 a newsletter was published which was replaced by the Journal of Radiological Protection (JRP) in 1981. Since then the Journal has grown in stature to become a well-respected international journal. It is important that it continues. The current growth in electronic communication will of course have an effect on JRP as on other journals. A new newsletter was started in 1996 to provide information to SRP members. This continues to be a useful publication for members which should continue. However, there could be advantages in making it normally available

The role of historical operations information for supporting remedial investigation work at the former Harshaw Chemical Site - 8279.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the early stages of hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste (HTRW) site investigations, basic record searches are performed to help direct the agencies investigating contaminated sites to areas of concern and to identify contaminants of interest (COI). Plans developed on the basis of this preliminary research alone are often incomplete and result in unexpected discoveries either while in the field investigating the site or after the reports have been written. Many of the sites investigated under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action program (FUSRAP) have complex histories that are slowly uncovered over the life of the project. Because of programmatic constraints, nuances of these sites are often discovered late in their programs and result in increased expenditures in order to fully characterize the site, perform a robust feasibility study, and recommend appropriate alternatives for remediation. By identifying resources for public records, classified records, historic aerial photographs, and other sources of site-specific historical information, a process can be established to optimize the collection of information and to develop efficient and complete project plans. In many cases, interviews with past site employees are very useful tools. In combining what is found in the records, observed on historic aerial photographs, and heard from former employees and family members, teams investigating these sites can begin to compile sound and more complete conceptual site models (CSMs). The former Harshaw Chemical Site (HCS) illustrates this discovery process. HCS is part of FUSRAP. Preliminary investigations by the US Department of Energy (DOE) in the 1970s provided an initial CSM of activities that had taken place that may have resulted in contamination. The remedial investigation (RI) conducted by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) was designed around this CSM. The RI work, however, identified a number of site conditions that were unexpected, including new potential COI associated with recycled uranium and contaminant locations that were inconsistent with the original CSM. As part of an RI Addendum effort, the USACE reconsidered its understanding of HCS historical activities. This effort included an intensive review of available historical aerial photography, an in-depth Potentially Responsible Parties (PRP) investigation, additional analysis of the production processes in place at HCS, and targeted supplemental data collection. The result of this effort was a revised CSM that included a number of previously unidentified potential COI and a much clearer understanding of the processes and resulting waste streams potentially associated with environmental contamination. Because of their complex and often poorly documented operational histories, unexpected discoveries will always be a part of investigating sites such as HCS. Taking advantage of available resources and expending funds for thorough historical research early in the life of a project will help to reduce the chances for expensive field remobilizations and significant schedule delays. A complete and accurate site history also allows for more efficient long-term technical and budgetary planning, thus eliminating many obstacles associated with the ultimate disposition of HTRW sites.

STEm Minority Graduate Program  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

ABSTRACT The state of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in the United States has seen some unfavorable assessments over the past decade. In early February, 2010 the House of Representatives heard testimony on undergraduate and graduate education. The message from the panel, which included experts from academia, STEM-based industries, and the National Science Foundation (NSF) was dire and required an urgent response. The experts along with the committee???¢????????s chairperson, U. S. Representative Daniel Lipinski (D-IL) cited that the complexity of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics applications and coursework and the methodology utilized to teach these subjects are forcing students out of these disciplines. As the National Academies described in its 2007 report Rising Above the Gathering Storm, successful STEM education is not just an academic pursuit???¢????????it???¢????????s a necessity for competing in the knowledge-based economy that the United States had a key role in creating. The potential for action is being made available again as the America COMPETES Act of 2007 is up for reauthorization. Its initial focus was on STEM education at the K-12 levels, but efforts at the undergraduate and graduate levels are needed to retain students to fill the jobs left vacant as baby boomers retire. The Educational Advancement Alliance, Inc. (EAA) has for two decades created programs that have not only addressed the issues of ensuring that students are aptly prepared for college but have focused its efforts over the past decade on increasing the number of students who pursue degrees in STEM disciplines. For the EAA, the introduction of the wonders of science begins at the elementary and middle school level via the Learning Lab, a state-of-the-art mobile science laboratory that visits students in grades 4-6 at the various schools throughout Philadelphia and The Math/Tech Academy which meets on Saturdays for students in grades 5-7. For the past two years the EAA has assisted college graduates in their quest to attain advanced degrees in STEM by providing fellowships. The EAA continued this effort by recruiting and providing fellowships to students who aspired to continue their education at the graduate level. The fellowships provided funding for tuition, fees, books, technology, and stipends to assist with room, board, and living expenses during the academic year and salary, transportation, and living expenses to those students who secured internships with the Department of Energy. Additionally the EAA designed and implemented needed support systems to ensure successful completion of the Masters degree programs, including but not limited to membership in professional associations, attendance at industry and academic conferences, and professional development workshops, and tutorial assistance if needed. This program assisted over 80 students directly and society-at-large by helping to educate and develop future physicists, engineers, biostatisticians, and researchers who will have the necessary skillsets to fill the increasing numbers of positions that require such expertise.

Office of the Chief Financial Officer Annual Report 2007  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

2007 was a year of progress and challenges for the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO). I believe that with the addition of a new Controller, the OCFO senior management team is stronger than ever. With the new Controller on board, the senior management team spent two intensive days updating our strategic plan for the next five years ending in 2012, while making sure that we continue to execute on our existing strategic initiatives. In 2007 the Budget Office, teaming with Human Resources, worked diligently with our colleagues on campus to reengineer the Multi-Location Appointment (MLA) process, making it easier for our Principal Investigators (PIs) to work simultaneously between the Laboratory and UC campuses. The hiring of a point-of-contact in Human Resources to administer the program will also make the process flow smoother. In order to increase our financial flexibility, the OCFO worked with the Department of Energy (DOE) to win approval to reduce the burden rates on research and development (R&D) subcontracts and Intra-University Transfers (IUT). The Budget Office also performed a 'return on investment' (ROI) analysis to secure UCRP funding for a much needed vocational rehabilitation counselor. This new counselor now works with employees who are on medical leave to ensure that they can return to work in a more timely fashion, or if not able to return, usher them through the various options available to them. Under the direction of the new Controller, PriceWaterhouse Coopers (PWC) performed their annual audit of the Laboratory's financial data and reported positive results. In partnership with the Financial Policy and Training Office, the Controller's Office also helped to launch self-assessments of some of our financial processes, including timekeeping and resource adjustments. These self assessments were conducted to promote efficiencies and mitigate risk. In some cases they provided assurance that our practices are sound, and in others highlighted opportunities to improve. A third, and most important assessment on funds control was also conducted that proved very useful in making sure that our financial processes are sound and of the highest ethical standards. In June of 2007 the Procurement Department was awarded the DOE's FY2006 Secretarial Small Business Award for the advancement of small business contracts at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The award was presented in Washington, D.C. Procurement also distinguished itself by passing the tri-ennial Procurement Evaluation and Re-engineering Team (PERT) Review of its systems and processes. We continue to reduce costs through the Supply Chain Initiative saving the Laboratory {approx}$6M to date and have placed over 11,000 orders with over seven vendors using the eBuy system. Our wall-to-wall inventory, which was completed in March of 2007, reported a result of 99+% for item count and 99.51% by value. This was a remarkable achievement that required the hard work of every Division and the Property Department working together. Training continues to be a major initiative for the OCFO and in 2007 we rolled out financial training programs specifically tailored to meet the needs of the scientific divisions. FY2008 presents several opportunities to enhance and improve our service to the scientific community. With the awarding of the HELIOS and JBEI programs, we will be developing new financial paradigms to provide senior management flexibility in decision making. Last year we heard the Laboratory community loud and clear when they expressed their frustration with our current travel system. As we head into the new fiscal year, a cross-functional travel team has identified a new model for how we provide travel services. We will be implementing the Oracle PeopleSoft Travel Reimbursement system by July of 2008. The new system will be more user-friendly and provide better information to the divisions and travel operations. We will also continue to review the travel disbursements operation for further improvement. Also in FY2008, several key information

The hydrogen economy: Its history  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The concept leading to a hydrogen economy lay in the work of a Nazi engineer, Lawaceck, 1968. I heard his suggestion of cheaper transfer of energy in hydrogen through pipes at a dinner in that year. A paper was published with Appleby in 1972 which was the first published document concerning that title and involving the title of A Hydrogen Economy. The first meeting was in Cornell University in 1973. In 1974 T. Nejat Veziroglu organized the first big meeting on hydrogen (900 attendees). At this meeting I presented privately to Veziroglu the possibilities of a world development and he told me that he was ready to put his organizing ability to use in spreading the ideas worldwide. However, he not only proceeded to do this but he, also a professor at the University of Miami, contributed several papers of notes, particularly the one with Awad of 1974 about the cost of pollution. Gregory worked at the Gas Research Institute from 1971 and confirmed the expectations put down by Lawaceck. Veziroglu founded the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy in 1974. Research in hydrogen was relatively low cost and therefore was taken up most eagerly by those from the newer countries. The National Science Foundation awarded Texas A&M University in 1982 a five year support for hydrogen as a fuel with the condition that half the costs be borne by at least five industrial companies. I was appointed director of the research under the grant and chose to concentrate upon the decomposition of water by solar light via an electrochemical photo fuel cell. We were able to obtain considerable increases in efficiency of decomposition of water by solar light, and at the time the work was interrupted we had 9.6 percent efficiency for decomposition. S.U.M. Khan and R. Kainthla were the principal contributors to the theory of using light via electrochemical cells for this purpose. The Texas A&M University work on hydrogen was interrupted in 1989 by the arrival of claims that one of my former students had carried out electrolysis of deuterium oxide saying that an extra unexplained heat had been observed and he suggested this heat was nuclear in origin. Later, seeking to reduce the cost of hydrogen as a fuel I involved Sol Zaromb in discussions and we came across the idea that if one included a carbon dioxide molecule obtained by removing it from the atmosphere in the structure of methanolAT, no increase in global warming would occur from the use of methanol with that condition, (published in 2008). By this condition methanol took on the largest advantage of gaseous hydrogen: That it did not cause global warming. The estimated cost of the new (anti-global warming) fuel, methanolAT was less than $30/GJ. This estimated cost could be compared with the $48/GJ which is now being supported by a French Canadian group who published an attractive book with six pages of calculations of costs. The difference between the cost estimated by this group and the costs which have been assumed by hydrogen enthusiasts in earlier times was that they took into account the auxiliary expenses which would come with the use of hydrogen, in particular the storage at high pressure. The characteristics of the new methanol to cause no global warming put that aspect of it on an equal footing to the gaseous hydrogen. The CO2 which was an essential part of the structure of methanolAT was necessary to be created in a stream, rather than directly from the atmosphere, but it was easily shown that this could be done by the use of biomass and by carbonaceous wastes. A German team under Weiderman and Grob appeared in 2008 and proceeded to suggest some extensions of the ideas which had been undergoing publication for some time. The aim of the German work was to reduce costs of a compound which they called Methasyn. The present situation is that the claim of methanolAT as a world fuel to be used without any concerns of exhaustion or pollution depends on the commercial point of view of the costs being less than that of obtaining oil from the tar sands.

Control Banding and Nanotechnology Synergist  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The average Industrial Hygienist (IH) loves a challenge, right? Okay, well here is one with more than a few twists. We start by going through the basics of a risk assessment. You have some chemical agents, a few workers, and the makings of your basic exposure characterization. However, you have no occupational exposure limit (OEL), essentially no toxicological basis, and no epidemiology. Now the real handicap is that you cannot use sampling pumps, cassettes, tubes, or any of the media in your toolbox, and the whole concept of mass-to-dose is out the window, even at high exposure levels. Of course, by the title, you knew we were talking about nanomaterials (NM). However, we wonder how many IHs know that this topic takes everything you know about your profession and turns it upside down. It takes the very foundations that you worked so hard in college and in the field to master and pulls it out from underneath you. It even takes the gold standard of our profession, the quantitative science of exposure assessment, and makes it look pretty darn rusty. Now with NM there is the potential to get some aspect of quantitative measurements, but the instruments are generally very expensive and getting an appropriate workplace personal exposure measurement can be very difficult if not impossible. The potential for workers getting exposures, however, is very real, as evidenced by a recent publication reporting worker exposures to polyacrylate nanoparticles in a Chinese factory (Song et al. 2009). With something this complex and challenging, how does a concept as simple as Control Banding (CB) save the day? Although many IHs have heard of CB, most of their knowledge comes from its application in the COSHH Essentials toolkit. While there is conflicting published research on COSHH Essentials and its value for risk assessments, almost all of the experts agree that it can be useful when no OELs are available (Zalk and Nelson 2008). It is this aspect of CB, its utility with uncertainty, that attracted international NM experts to recommend this qualitative risk assessment approach for NM. However, since their CB recommendation was only in theory, we took on the challenge of developing a working toolkit, the CB Nanotool (see Zalk et al. 2009 and Paik et al. 2008), as a means to perform a risk assessment and protect researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. While it's been acknowledged that engineered NM have potentially endless benefits for society, it became clear to us that the very properties that make nanotechnology so useful to industry could also make them dangerous to humans and the environment. Among the uncertainties and unknowns with NM are: the contribution of their physical structure to their toxicity, significant differences in their deposition and clearance in the lungs when compared to their parent material (PM), a lack of agreement on the appropriate indices for exposure to NM, and very little background information on exposure scenarios or populations at risk. Part of this lack of background information can be traced to the lack of risk assessments historically performed in the industry, with a recent survey indicating that 65% of companies working with NM are not doing any kind of NM-specific risk assessment as they focus on traditional PM methods for IH (Helland et al. 2009). The good news is that the amount of peer-reviewed publications that address environmental, health and safety aspects of NM has been increasing over the last few years; however, the percentage of these that address practical methods to reduce exposure and protect workers is orders of magnitude lower. Our intent in developing the CB Nanotool was to create a simplified approach that would protect workers while unraveling the mysteries of NM for experts and non-experts alike. Since such a large part of the toxicological effects of both the physical and chemical properties of NM were unknown, not to mention changing logarithmically as new NM research continues growing, we needed to account for this lack of information as part of the CB Nano

The CO-OP Guide  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

You are at D0, the newest and most advanced experiment at Fermilab. Its goal is to find the 'top quark', nicknamed 'truth'. theoretically one of the six fundamental building blocks of matter. Combinations of the six quarks are said to make up electrons, protons and neutrons. Your group at D0 is the cryogenic division. Its goal is to provide and maintain a cryogenic system which ultimately supplies and controls the liquid argon used in the giant cryostats for the experiment. The high purity liquid argon is needed to keep the detector modules inside the cryostats cold, so that they will operate properly. Your job at D0 is to be a co-op for the research and development group of the cryogenics division. Your goals are dependent on the needs of the cryo group. D0 is where you will spend most of your time. The co-op office is located on what is known as the 3rd floor, but is actually on the ground floor. The floor directly above the 3rd floor is the 5th floor, which contains your immediate superiors and the D0 secretary. The 6th and top floor is above that, and contains the D0 secretary for official and important business. On the other side of the D0 assembly building is the cryo control room. This is where the cryogenic piping system is remotely monitored and controlled. Other important sites at D0 include the trailer city on the north parking lot, which has the D0 secretary who handles all the payroll matters (among other duties), and the portakamp in the south parking lot. Besides D0, which is named for its location on the particle accelerator ring. the most important place is Wilson Hall. That is the large building shaped like a big Atact symbol. It contains various important people such as the safety group. the personnel department (which you have already encountered. being hired), the minor stock room, the cafeteria, the Fermi library. Ramsey Auditorium. etc. Behind Wilson Hall is the Booster Ring, which accelerates particles before they are injected into the main ring. Inside the booster ring are the East and West Booster towers, which contain cryogenic support groups. The D0 cryo group offices used to be in the West Booster Portakamps. Away from Wilson Hall, there are various buildings strewn about the Fermilab property that have important functional uses to D0. One such example is Lab A. This is where the now unused bubble chamber resides. which was used to take pictures of particle motion. Many of our group is from the bubble chamber, and occasionally stories from the 'bubble chamber days' can be heard as someone waxes nostalgic. Lab A has a machine shop and many technicians. All three of the cryostats used in the D0 experiment went through Lab A for preparation and installation work. Lab A is located directly up the road from the front of Wilson Hall (north-east). Its unmistakable dark geodesic dome makes it easy to find. The Feynman Computer building, located east and just a little bit north of Wilson Hall, houses the computer repair people. If any of the computers used in our group crash and burn, we must take them to the third floor of Feynman to be fixed or exchanged. On one side is the Prep department, which handles the VAX mainframe computers, and on the other is personal computer repair, which handles Fermi Macs and IBMs. Directly north of Wilson Hall is Site 38. This site is the location of many important Fermilab facilities, such as the Fermi fire department, the carpenter's shop, the Fermi gas pumps, the main stock room, and shipping and receiving. Lastly, but perhaps most significantly, is the Fermilab Village. In addition to the machine shops, the cut shop, welding facilities, and the garishly painted physicist dorms, there are such things as a gym, a pool and other facilities to take the edge off a weary mind. The village is located just north off Batavia road on the east side of Fermilab. The village barn is the first and most notable building as one approaches.
