Atherton in, Moses out
NIF Reshuffle: Atherton In, Moses Out http://www.laserfocusworld.com/articles/2013/04/new-director-and-mission-transition-at-nif.html I think some of you bloggers called this one (albeit for incorrect reasons). Doesn't look like a huge reshuffle anyways. Moses is still PAD for the directorate. Plus he's also been NIF director for SO LONG. April 29, 2013 at 5:52 PM Anonymous said... April 29, 2013 at 5:52 PM Isn't it amazing how in a time when all the worker bees are taking pay cuts, getting laid off and taking it in the shorts in almost anyway possible ULM finds a way to promote one of their own kind to a position giving due cause for a BIG pay raise and to get that salary up just prior to retirement. And they wonder why people hate them. April 29, 2013 at 7:09 PM Anonymous said... And they wonder why people hate them. April 29, 2013 at 7:09 PM Not everyone hates them. Hate is an emotion that negates thought and reason. If you hate, you lose. Try opposing your adversary with more intelligence and cleverness. April 29, 2013 at 9:42 PM Anonymous said... Just remember that Ed did his job well. He may not have the tact and social adeptness of a Fortune 500 executive. He may be a total a-hole to many but to others he was a effective leader. If the worst we can say about Ed is that he is unlikeable, that's a good sign that he is probably the guy you want to solve your very hard problems and run you high risk complex projects.

April 29, 2013 at 9:42 I think everyone needs to understand their position in life as well as many other people much higher in the food chain that this dude.

I would say that in 100 years people will look at Ed on manner as Einstein, Dirac, and Teller. That is some legacy. You can also say what you want about NIF but NIF works.

Is Parney going to announce a VSP on Thursday 5-2-2013 and is he going to let as many people who want to go leave by the end of June. That is what everyone I know wants the answwer to and they want it soon. I have never seen more excitement at LLNL than during this waiting period for those gates to open. I'm getting phone call after phone call asking the same question. April 30, 2013 at 11:39 AM Anonymous said... April 30, 2013 at 11:39 AM: Yes. No. Happy now?

Some of the more important corrections need to be made at the lower levels of management, particularly at the project management level. May 1, 2013 at 12:48 AM Anonymous said... April 30, 2013 at 9:52 PM This thread will not disappear since there is nothing here that being said that bad except for some nincompoop thinking that Ed Moses is going to be looked upon like a Teller, Einstein, Dirac. These three did something that works and for the good of the nation. May 1, 2013 at 6:49 AM Anonymous said... This thread will not disappear since there is nothing here that being said that bad May 1, 2013 at 6:49 AM Did you read the capitalized, highlighted, red warning banner at the top post?? Scooby regularly (when he gets around to it) deletes any comments that in his opinion do not deserve top post status. Get a clue. May 1, 2013 at 8:40 AM Anonymous said... May 1, 2013 at 8:40 AM I'm thinking Scooby may be interested in the VSP and may just want the rest of the world and all the "real" people at LLNL who want to leave know what is going on.

I don't have any respect for Moses after he yelled at me for sitting in "his chair" which DOE/NNSA bought him. May 1, 2013 at 5:18 PM Anonymous said...

You deserved to be yelled at. How would you like some little pissant sitting in you chair? May 1, 2013 at 5:46 PM Anonymous said... Hahaha you got told to GTFO of his chair. What were you thinking anyways? You should have known better. I bet nobody told you, just so that they can watch you get the "treatment." hahahaha May 1, 2013 at 5:54 PM Anonymous said... Ed would have gotten credit for ignition had his designers and scientists had not let him down. But now that he has been retasked, his legacy regarding the pursuit of ignition is final. He gets credit for a successful build and for playing his part (as with many others). But someone else will get all the glory whenever and wherever ignition-in-a-lab is achieved.

This must have been during the last layoffs. I hope they caught the perpetrator. Can't be stinking up a place like that. May 1, 2013 at 6:04 PM Anonymous said... Teller does not belong in the same sentence as Einstein and Dirac. Ed Moses is just an engineer. May 1, 2013 at 7:15 PM Anonymous said... " Teller does not belong in the same sentence as Einstein and Dirac. Ed Moses is just an engineer." First off, no Teller means no Livermore. Teller also made the "super". The super may have saved the United States. It is hard to compare Einstein, Dirac and Teller. They all had Noble prizes, and all had great scientific contributions. Teller went beyond science that he also had a great impact on politics and the Nation. Star Was which was Tellers dream is what brought down the Soviets. This man won the cold war.

May 1, 2013 at 8:22 PM Uh, what current US defense system is "star wars" derived?? Yeah, none. Bad history. The Soviets were defeated by their own economic disaster. Just as the US will be.

The specific grammar errors are typical of phishing attempts from that region, specifically China. May 2, 2013 at 2:33 AM Anonymous said... Odd considering the link is to India, which has a large English speaking population. May 2, 2013 at 2:34 AM Anonymous said... Teller should have quit while he was ahead (during his glory days). Instead he kept going on spawning the likes of Lowell wood and other con artists. May 2, 2013 at 2:54 AM Anonymous said... "Teller should have quit while he was ahead (during his glory days).
