Nov 24, 2006 San Francisco Chronicle Berkeley considering need for nano safety
Berkeley is proposing what a city official says would be the world's first local regulation of nanomaterials -- engineered particles and fibers so vanishingly small and super-efficient that they promise to revolutionize industry but pose possible health risks to people if inhaled or exposed to skin.
Nov 21, 2006 San Francisco Chronicle Berkeley: New steel wall promises cheaper, stronger quake-proof construction
Engineers from UC Berkeley and the construction industry unveiled a prototype Monday of a new kind of steel wall they say is three times stronger than wood-framed walls and has the potential to dramatically lower the cost of earthquake-resistant, multi-unit housing.
Nov 17, 2006 Times-Picayune Landfill standards strengthened
The decision to increase safety requirements followed concerns raised several weeks ago by Robert Bea, an engineering professor at University of California, Berkeley...
Nov 06, 2006 A cookstove for Darfur
Scientists have designed a cookstove that could make life a little easier for refugees in the Darfur area of Sudan. It might also help reduce the loss of forests in poor countries where trees are cut down as fuel for cooking fires. The scientists are from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley.
Nov 03, 2006 Engineer says landfill could compromise nearby levee
Robert Bea, an engineering professor at the University of California at Berkeley, said there is a 1 in 3 chance that the landfill, once complete, could cause serious impairment to the levee.
Nov 02, 2006 Sacramento Bee New levee in Yuba gives river more room
On the winding Bear River in Yuba County, work is wrapping up on a new stretch of levee that gives the river a wide band of land alongside it where water can spread out should flooding occur.
Oct 31, 2006 CNN McCain's farm flip
The senator has been a critic of ethanol. That doesn't play in Iowa. So the Straight Talk Express has taken a detour.
Oct 28, 2006 Los Angeles Times A money gap and a brain drain
Corey Goodman and Carla Shatz had a grand vision for UC BERKELEY: to build the greatest neuroscience program in the world, to figure out how healthy brains work, and to use that understanding to cure disease.

Oct 11, 2006 Berkeley Lab News A Ruler made of Gold and DNA
Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California at Berkeley have developed a ruler made of gold nanoparticles and DNA that can measure the smallest of life's phenomena, such as precisely where on a DNA strand a protein attaches itself.
Sep 25, 2006 MSNBC Science and the Gender Gap
To get a sense of how women have progressed in science, take a quick tour of the physics department at the University of California, Berkeley.
Sep 19, 2006 Sacramento Bee State needs private engineers
A major UC Berkeley study found that, overall, engineering salaries are very similar in the public and private sectors, and that if anything public sector engineers receive higher benefits.
Sep 19, 2006 The Mercury News It pays to be a genius -- $500,000
Claire Tomlin, 37, is an aviation engineer at Stanford University and the University of California Berkeley who uses mathematical principles to help pilots and air traffic controllers avoid mid-air collisions...
Sep 18, 2006 SF Chronicle Stretching could be stem cell catalyst
The study by University of California [at Berkeley] bioengineering graduate student Kyle Kurpinski is one of several at the 232nd American Chemical Society National Meeting to show that physical manipulation of stem cells may be an important step in transforming them into tissues that could heal injuries or cure diseases.
Sep 08, 2006 The Chronicle A Berkeley Engineer Searches for the 'Truth' About the Twin Towers

Sep 06, 2006 Washington Monthly The Washington Monthly's Annual College Guide
In a new university ranking released this week, Washington Monthly called the University of California, Berkeley "about the best thing for America we can find. It's good by all of our measurements. The same goes for the rest of the schools in the UC system, four of which make our top 10, the rest of which make our top 80."
Sep 04, 2006 KTLA News Errors, Costs Stall Nuclear Waste Project
Academic experts agree the U.S. is losing its expertise in nuclear engineering. There are 35 universities in the U.S. with nuclear engineering departments, half as many as in the 1970s, said Joonhong Ahn, a UC Berkeley expert on nuclear waste.
Aug 27, 2006 USA Today Editorial: Piecemeal federal response won't protect New Orleans
