UPTON, NY-Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered a new catalytic system for converting carbon dioxide (CO2) to methanol-a key commodity used to create a wide range of industrial chemicals and fuels. Show More Summary
Southern accents are apparently not highly regarded at the U.S. Energy Department’s largest research facility, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The government workers were ordered to lose their southern accents and the agency hired a speech pathologist at taxpayer expense to initiate the “accent neutralization” process. Show More Summary
