"Researchers Build New Batteries That Charge
Instantly And Hold Hours Of Juice" techcrunch.com.
"In a small lab, near
a lake at the edge of West Berkeley, sits the prototype of what
could revolutionize battery power as we know it. The secret to
this power? Algae.
OK, just hang with me here.
Lots of research has already been done on algae's possible power
capabilities. Prototype creator Adam Freeman says this new kind
of battery, the one he's working on, could power even a Tesla.
And he says it could do it 200X greater than the current lithium-based
battery used today.
He's created a research company
called al GAS that aims to prove just that.
Freeman says the algae battery
also charges faster and lasts longer than current ion batteries
used in, say, your cell phone, iPad or a Tesla. As Freeman explains,
paper-thin fibers in algae provide an easier surface for ions
to get through, resulting in a charge in as little as 11 seconds,
not minutes or hours."
"Berkeley Lab Study Highlights Growing
Energy Impact of Internet Video Streaming" einnews.com.
"How much CO2 was emitted
when you streamed that movie from Netflix last night? It's a question
few people think about, but now researchers at Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have analyzed the energy usage
of home movie viewing. They found that transmitting the bytes
across the Internet accounts for the bulk of energy usage and
emissions when streaming videos.
In 2011, the year that they
studied, Americans streamed 3.2 billion hours of video, which
consumed 25 petajoules of energy (enough to power about 175,000
U.S. households for one year) and emitted 1.3 billion kilograms
of CO2. More than half of the energy usage went to data transmission,
according to the study by Arman Shehabi of Berkeley Lab and Ben
Walker and Eric Masanet of Northwestern University. Their study,
'The energy and greenhouse-gas implications of internet video
streaming in the United States,' was published online recently
in Environmental Research Letters."

Tobacco is about to get a

"News is news: 'Top

end of such a story no matter how badly it's written. But how
do you attract the attention of a busy, distracted reader to a
story that doesn't contain such a revelation? That's the art of
narrative writing. It's an art which requires not only accurate,
conscientious reporting, but carefully thinking out your storytelling
strategy. Good storytelling is the foundation of catching people's
attention in film, radio, TV and other media as well, but in this
course we will work with the older medium of the written word.
If you want your readers

Moveable Feast . A restaurant tour focused on locally sourced
food showcases the culinary highlights of downtown Berkeley"
Zaineb Mohammed, eastbayexpress.com.
"When Marissa LaMagna
moved to Berkeley about fifteen years ago, she noticed a lot of
empty storefronts in the downtown area. Slowly, she saw the area
revitalize. 'I watched this resurgence of downtown becoming an
epicurean epicenter,' she said.
Having worked on farms in
Vermont and Ohio when she was in her twenties, LaMagna had been
a longtime advocate for the farm-to-table movement and was inspired
by restaurants like Gather, whose owners are committed to locally
sourcing their food. In 2008, she founded Bay Area Green Tours,
which focuses on local green businesses, and collaborated with
Gather's owners on hosting a breakfast at their restaurant, followed
by tours of farms from which the food came. In 2011, following
the opening of more sustainability focused restaurants, LaMagna
decided to start a small restaurant tour called the Moveable Feast,
in which attendees could sample food at a few restaurants while
talking with the chefs and learning about where their food comes
The next tour, organized
to coincide with the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies
conference (of which the Express is a sponsor), will take place
on Tuesday, June 10."

"Chef Jeremiah Tower finds third act in
Mexico" by Michael
"Jeremiah Tower plunged
through the seafood aisles of this city's central covered market,
wrinkling his nose at a pile of limp grey sharks before his gaze
landed on a pair of plump and glistening freshly caught octopus.
The man who once ran two
of America's most famous kitchens popped his first purchase into
a monogrammed tote bag, then moved on to find the rest of lunch
- bright orange chilies, brown beans, radishes, black blood sausage
and a thick slab of Yucatecan pork belly fried crisp in its own
Finally, he ate a late breakfast
of cochinita pibil - the famous shredded pork slow-roasted in
orange juice - and tender chunks of suckling pig topped with crackling
pieces of fried skin'
'I'm 100 percent satisfied
and it cost me $3,' he declared. Making food like this is 'all
I ever tried to do," he said.
Tower made his name during
the '70s at Alice Waters' Chez Panisse, the famed Berkeley, California,
restaurant that helped spawn a fresh-local renaissance in American
cooking. He later became one of the first modern celebrity chefs
at Stars, a San Francisco brasserie he says grossed $9 million
a year serving cornmeal blinis and truffled lobster to Luciano
Pavarotti, Barbra Streisand and other luminaries of '80s and '90s.
Now Tower's third act is
underway in the capital of Yucatan, the tropical Gulf Coast state
whose richly spiced, fat-laden and pork-heavy Mayan cuisine has
produced what Tower calls a handful of world-class dishes. It's
a very different life."

"West Berkeley residents complain of 'toxic
fumes' " Melissa
"West Berkeley residents
are once again demanding more city action on complaints of emissions
from a nearby asphalt plant, following a decades-long struggle
between Berkeley industry and its residential neighbors.
Residents of the Oceanview
neighborhood and surrounding area held a press conference Monday
in front of City Hall, where they announced their submission of
a Public Records Act request asking for proof of whether the city
has taken action to mitigate impacts of the Berkeley asphalt plant,
which is owned by Lehigh Hanson. Specifically, residents
have asked for records regarding a 1999 settlement agreement which
ordered the city to monitor efforts by the company to reduce noise,
odors and other alleged nuisances.
Some improvement occurred
after the settlement, but problems have picked up again in the
last five years, according to Terry Terteling, who has lived in
the area for more than 30 years. At the press conference,
residents complained of 'toxic fumes' from the plant."
"Berkeley mayor suggests
regional minimum wage plan to Oakland, East Bay leaders"
"Campaigns by fast
food workers, Walmart employees and unions appear
to be having an effect, as cities across the country scramble
to raise local minimum wages. Seattle just jumped out
front, with a $15.00 minimum wage; San Francisco may
join in, if a measure to raise that city's minimum wage from $10.74
to $15.00 makes it to the November ballot. The City of Richmond recently
voted to raise its minimum to $12.30.
Oakland may soon be matched
by Berkeley, which is considering a law linking its minimum wage
to the rate in the Oakland ballot measure. Unlike Oakland, Berkeley
would phase in its increase and allow some exemptions. By October
1, 2016, the Berkeley wage would rise to $12.53 to match Oakland's
rate, after cost of living increases.
Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates
has called for an East Bay regional minimum wage, an idea endorsed
by business owners at a recent Oakland Chamber of Commerce breakfast
on the topic. Bates has reached out to officials in cities around
the East Bay, including Oakland, suggesting this approach."

In a bit over the top,Terry
Terteling writes in letter to the Daily Cal editor"Residents
of West Berkeley still fuming over services.
The shallowness of the recent
news article describing the conflict between neighborhood residents
and the massive Lehigh Hanson Asphalt Plant in West Berkeley was
deeply disappointing. A few quotes from opposing sides, mixed
with the self-serving platitudes from local politicians, did not
result in a meaningful story.
The article totally avoids a simple basic truth at the heart of
this matter - perhaps because that truth threatens our city's
self-righteous air of superiority as we continually congratulate
ourselves for being at the forefront of the 'Green Revolution.'
The truth is that Berkeley has a dirty little secret. We believe
that for more than 50 years, our city's powerful elite in their
Downtown lairs have knowingly allowed two huge industrial sites
to destroy the health and quality of life of thousands of people.
The toxic emissions that
spew from Pacific Steel and Berkeley Asphalt are significant and
well-documented, as are the blatant failures of California's Air
Resources Board to control them. The haze of chemical-laden dust
and fumes that spreads over the homes and workplaces of thousands
of people in Berkeley, Albany, El Cerrito and beyond causes untold
hardship and suffering, but we are told this travesty must be
tolerated because - in the words of West Berkeley Councilmember
Linda Maio - these companies provide 'vital services.' Exactly
what 'vital services' beyond the hefty tax contributions to the
city's bottomless coffers and election-time handouts from powerful
unions can possibly justify this devil's bargain?
