Offshore Development Expansion is urged by manufacturers.
National Association Of Manufacturers (NAM)    Washington, DC 20004
April 2, 2010 Jay Timmons, NAM Executive VP, commented on President Obama's announcement to partially expand oil and natural gas exploration and development on Outer Continental Shelf. Commending Obama's leadership, Timmons said the decision is "a positive step toward a lower cost domestic energy supply and ensuring U.S. energy security and independence." Another applauded benefit was job creation potential, which was supported by independent Milken Institute's Jobs for America report.

Biotechnology Industry Organization    Washington, DC 20024
April 2, 2010 Scheduled for May 3-6, 2010 BIO International Convention will feature series of high level panels examining latest biotechnology advancements designed to address pressing global industrial and environment issues, from development of advanced biofuels to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. During breakout sessions, speakers will address biofuels, algae, synthetic biology, dedicated energy crops, climate change, nanotechnology, and renewable chemicals.
Stringent Appliance Standards apply to home water heaters.
U.S. Department of Energy    Washington, DC 20585
April 2, 2010 U.S. DoE Secretary Steven Chu announced that Department has finalized higher energy efficiency standards for heating appliances that will save consumers up to $10 billion and prevent up to 164 million MT of carbon dioxide emissions over 30 years. These standards - for residential water heaters, pool heaters, and direct heating equipment - will reduce air pollution, prevent release of nitrogen oxides and mercury, and avoid emissions equivalent to taking 46 million cars off the road for 1 year.
Sen Feinstein highlights ASHRAE in Congressional record remarks.
American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers    Atlanta, GA 30329
April 2, 2010 U.S. Senate passed legislation that could make air travel healthier by calling for FAA to conduct study of air quality in cabins of U.S. airliners. Measure to protect flying public from harmful toxins was put forth by Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA). In her address to Senate, Feinstein supported her argument with 2009 letter from ASHRAE Presidential Member William Harrison, in which he called on FAA to investigate and determine requirements for bleed air contaminant monitoring.
ABC's Receding CBI shows recession-mired construction industry.
Associated Builders & Contractors, Inc.    East Syracuse, NY 13057
April 2, 2010 Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) reported its Construction Backlog Indicator (CBI) - used as forward-looking indicator that measures amount of construction work under contract to be completed in future - declined 9% between November 2009 and January 2010. It slipped 16.3% during past year and currently stands at 5.5 months. ABC Chief Economist Anirban Basu says this indicates nonresidential construction industry is still stuck in its own recession.
NIST Scientists address transparent film development issues.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
April 2, 2010 Research conducted at the NIST and North Dakota State University have uncovered problems concerning nanotube coating that might one day improve solar cells. Scientists have found coatings made of single-walled carbon nanotubes are not quite as deformable as hoped. Issues that need to be addressed before full potential of these coatings is realized include minimizing development of irreversible changes in nanotube arrangement that reduce their conductivity when put under modest strains.
Fire Safety Study reinforces use of alarm, sprinkler, and doors to prevent casualties.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
April 2, 2010 Experimenting on university dormitory, researchers from NIST demonstrated that the correct combination of automatic fire sprinkler systems, smoke alarms, and closed doors provided enough time and safe conditions for safe evacuation of residents as well as conditions that let firefighters perform their job without undue hazard. Study's goal was to compare hazard levels created by room fires in dormitory buildings with and without sprinklers in room where fire starts.

Some plenary session topics will include risk assessments and contingency planning, logging and auditing in healthcare context, and encryption requirements in healthcare environment.
NIST develops racetrack ion trap for quantum computing.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
April 1, 2010 Physicists at NIST have built and tested device for trapping ions that potentially could process dozens of ions simultaneously. Made of quartz wafer coated with gold in 2 x 4 mm oval shape, NIST's "racetrack" ion trap features 150 work zones where qubits could be stored and transported using electric fields and manipulated with laser beams for information processing. Preliminary testing is described in paper, Toward Scalable Ion Traps for Quantum Information Processing.
NIST studies spray-on manufacturing of transistors.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
April 1, 2010 Multi-disciplinary research team at NIST has found that an organic semiconductor may be a viable candidate for creating large-area electronics, such as solar cells and displays that can be sprayed onto surface as easily as paint. Team says material they studied could overcome one of the main cost hurdles blocking large-scale manufacture of organic thin-film transistors, the development of which also could lead to host of devices inexpensive enough to be disposable.
BIO Convention to feature health and medical program.
Biotechnology Industry Organization    Washington, DC 20024
April 1, 2010 Scheduled for May 3-6, 2010 BIO International Convention will highlight latest scientific breakthroughs as well as policy and business development issues that impact drug discovery and development. Program includes historically popular tracks like Biomarkers and Drug Discovery and Development as well as new tracks for 2010 such as Delivery and Manufacturing of Biologics and Drugs, Global Drug Development and Marketing, and Innovations in Vaccines.
ASABE Standard to cover anhydrous ammonia application machinery.
American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers    Saint Joseph, MI 49085
April 1, 2010 ASABE has initiated project to develop new standard, Agricultural Machinery: Safety for Anhydrous Ammonia Application Equipment. Standard will address issues specific to anhydrous ammonia applicator, applicator distribution systems, electronic and mechanical metering and control systems, and implement-to-nurse tank hitching. Also included will be aspects of nurse tank-to-applicator coupling and delivery system that are not covered by other industry standards.

Depeau and Kane add to what Secretary LaHood calls "a knowledgeable group from diverse parts of the transportation community."
NIST builds instrument that tugs on chains of atoms.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
April 1, 2010 Inspired by scanning tunneling microscope, NIST instrument can maneuver and hold position of atomic probe to within 5 picometers. Instrument uses fine, pure gold wire drawn out to sharp tip as probe, which is touched to flat gold surface, causing tip and surface atoms to bond, and gradually pulled away until single-atom chain is formed and then breaks. In addition to nanoscale mechanics, system can aid in studying movement of electrons in one-dimensional systems and single-molecule spectroscopy.
