  • LANL scientists named fellows in physics society

    A group of nine Los Alamos National Laboratory scientists are new Fellows of the American Physical Society.
    Cristian Batista, Malcolm Boshier, Dana Dattelbaum, Stephen Doorn, Michelle Espy, George Rodriguez, Avadh Saxena, Sergei Tretiak and Lin Yin are the new honorees from LANL.
    “Selection as American Physical Society fellows is de facto proof of the vibrant engagement Los Alamos scientists are having with the larger technical community,” said LANL director Charlie McMillan. “I am proud of the contributions Los Alamos scientists bring to these professional societies through papers, scientific conference attendance, and other professional interactions. Collaboration and the exchange of ideas through affiliations within societies such as APS play an important role in fueling the scientific innovation required to accomplish our national-security mission.”
    APS nominations are evaluated by the Fellowship Committee of the appropriate APS division, topical group or forum, or by the APS General Fellowship committee. After review by the full APS Fellowship Committee, the successful candidates are elected by the APS Council.

  • From Leather to Lace: Hairstyles and color for a tech era

    The fashion hair repertoire is anything but scarce.
    From bobs to pinks and purples, there’s always something new and original to try, perhaps divulge from Rapunzel’s golden hair.
    The past few months have been no different in bringing to the stage a new and “trendy” creation.
    This time it’s pixelated hair, the dying skill that effectively demonstrates a stylists skill and taste.
    In reality though, pixelated hair seems to have missed the mark, much like the earlier checkered hair trend from 2004.
    Though pixelated hair appears cohesive on the “wearer’s” head, it is unadaptable to the styles that are currently making top news in every high-flying fashion magazine.
    Floral, sophisticated, and minimalistic all clash with pixelation.
    But perhaps, that clash is exactly what the fashion scene needs right now.
    Undoubtedly the new hairdo would do quite well matched with a leather jacket.
    Perhaps, this invention will bring out the inner edge in every type of person and every ensemble.
    That’s ultimately up to you to decide. Give it a try and see what you like. Better now than never.

  • Ladino shares love of history with students

    Robyn Ladino, a New Mexico and United States history teacher at Los Alamos High School, grew up as an “Air Force brat.”
    “I lived in many different places as a child,” Ladino said. “During my lifetime I have moved to new places 14 times, including 22 different homes. Each new place had a history with unique characteristics.”
    She explained that the experiences of living in so many places influenced her desire to teach students about the world around them. Ladino wanted to teach history because she believes the study of history allows people to learn from their past, manage their present and hopefully make their future promising.
    When asked about the importance of students’ understanding the founding fathers framing of the United States Constitution, Ladino said, “I believe students must apply their knowledge and understanding of the U.S. Constitution as up-and-coming responsible citizens. Students need a clear understanding of their rights under the Constitution in order to make sound responsible decisions within our democracy as they move toward becoming adults.”
    In regards to New Mexico history, Ladino said students need this history knowledge because New Mexico is a very unique state, unlike any other in terms of beauty, magnificent diversity and dynamic history.
