  • Trio of businesses stand out at DisrupTech

    Three potential business partnership projects emerged from the 2015 DisrupTech competition at Los Alamos National Laboratory with winning proposals.
    “The goals of the DisrupTech forum were two-fold, to expose industry to potentially world-changing, disruptive, early-stage technologies developed by Los Alamos scientists,” said David Pesiri, Director of the Richard P. Feynman Center for Innovation.  “We also wanted to spark the entrepreneurial spirit in our scientists, giving them a chance to present their technologies outside of an academic setting.  We hope the experience might give them a new perspective on the end use of their technology.”
    An audience of more than 100 entrepreneurs, business executives, investors and government leaders from across the country listened intently as each of eight candidates gave a “Shark Tank”-like presentation.
    A panel representing some of Los Alamos’ industry partners, including Alion Science and Technology, Allied Minds, Chevron Energy Technology Company, Ernst & Young, Moon Express and State Science and Technology Institute, evaluated the presentations and provided feedback to the scientists on pitching a disruptive technology as a market solution.

  • Children's Clinic earns certification

    The Children’s Clinic in Los Alamos was recently awarded level 3 recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Patient-Centered Medical Home for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term, collaborative relationships.
    Children’s Clinic is the first practice in Los Alamos County to achieve such recognition, that according to a press release announcing the recognition.
    The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduce costs. Medical homes foster ongoing partnerships between patients and their personal clinicians.
    “NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition raises the bar in defining high- quality care by emphasizing access, health information technology and coordinated care focused on patients,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Recognition shows that the Children’s Clinic has the tools, systems and resources to provide its patients with the right care, at the right time.”
    To earn recognition, which is valid for three years, Children’s Clinic demonstrated the ability to meet the program’s key elements, embodying characteristics of the medical home.

  • Big Sam's Funky Nation will play at Ashley Pond

    Tonight is Los Alamos Monitor Night at the Gordon’s Summer Concert Series.
    For Los Alamos Monitor Night, the funk and jazz band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation will perform.
    Big Sam’s is from New Orleans. The band describes itself as “a driving force of urban funk” and is fronted by trombone player Big Sam Williams.
    Williams has gotten rave reviews for his trombone playing, being called “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz” by the San Francisco Examiner.
    The band includes five regular members, including vocalist and guitarist Joshua Connelly and trumpet player Andrew “Da Phessam” Baham.
    Big Sam’s will have a tough act to follow for tonight’s concert.
    A Rolling Stones’ cover band, Satisfaction, attracted quite possibly the biggest crowd of the season last week at Ashley Pond.
    Tonight’s concert will also take place at Ashley Pond.
    The Gordon’s series for this year is beginning to wind down. There are only five remaining concerts this season following Big Sam’s Funky Nation.
    Concerts are free and are sponsored by Los Alamos County.
