The Berkeley City Council has unanimously approved new rules requiring handlers of nanomaterials to make annual disclosures to the city's toxics manager.
Dec 02, 2006 Contra Costa Times With rich past, lab sets bold course
This year, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the birth of the first national lab in a small wooden building on the UC Berkeley campus where a visionary young man built the first circular particle accelerator.
Nov 30, 2006 Nanotubes grown from seed
Growing carbon nanotubes with well-defined widths and wall structures has been a long-standing challenge. The solution may involve seeding new tubes with pieces of existing ones.
Nov 30, 2006 Nike+ IPod = Surveillance
If you enhance your workout with the new Nike+ iPod Sport Kit, you may be making yourself a surveillance target.

Researchers at U.C. Berkeley are one step closer to making a malaria drug available to people around the globe.
Nov 27, 2006 Better Metal Wall System Coming for Seismic Zones
By April, structural engineers may be able to get building department approval, on a case-by-case basis, to use generic metal shear wall panels for low-rises in high seismic zones.
Nov 26, 2006 SF Chronicle Berkeley Lab's nanotechnology lectures open to all high school students
High school students are invited to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for the fall and spring semesters of "Nano High" -- a series of Saturday lectures by UC Berkeley professors and lab scientists on the future of nanotechnology.

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 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.
