University of California will no longer manage Los Alamos National Laboratory

Last week, LANL was closed upon a security review from National Nuclear Security Administration director and Bush appointee, Linton Brooks and Bush apointee Deputy Energy Secretary Kyle McSlarrow who are now back in DC. The reason for closing the all nonessential sections of the lab (even high security areas like the museum and cafeteria) was a missing removable storage device that contained classified material.

From the Albuquerque Journal:

The incident is the latest in a series of embarrassments that have prompted federal officials to put the Los Alamos management contract up for bid for the first time in the 61-year history of the lab that built the atomic bomb.

Gee, I wonder if Haliburton wil get the contract worth billions of dollars? We're going to start a new cold war.

Belmont School Will Be Completed

It's already the costliest High School ever built, with over $175 million spent on it so far. It has been put on hold for the last 4 years due to it being built on top of a major earthquake fault and an oil field that is leaching methane and hydrogen sulfide gas. The plan as it stands now is to tear down 2 buildings that are directly above the fault and build 2 more elsewhere, as well as install pipes and monitoring systems to keep the toxic gasses in check.
