UC is done!

UC is done with the whole thing, UNM and UNLV should run LLNL, LANL and Sandia. Unless someone can make money of this thing why bother? What is done at NNSA labs that cannot be done better and cheaper or not at all elsewhere? Bechtel can modernize an entire nation like Iraq to a more advanced level than Switzerland in a brutal war-zone but it cannot make workers have respect for management authority to NNSA labs? Tell me what is wrong with this picture and if you can you have the reason why UC has no interest in running these out of control labs.

UC founded LLNL. It began as a division of LBNL. I know as a direct fact that neither UC (Regents or President) will surrender without a big fight a lab that UC started and carries the name of UC's first Nobel Laureate. The Govenor is also a Regent, and the state legislature would grill UC for not fighting to the end to keep another state's university out of California.

Why would the UC want to remain involved with the NNSA labs? The whole system is a joke of its former self. This isn't 1950 either, the UC system doesn't support the NW mission anymore. There was exactly one opportunity to get the UC system involved, and that was at the beginning. Today, there is no reason why they would take on the bad PR and liability of being involved with NNSA.

Agreed there is no way UC wants anything to do with the pure mess that are the NNSA labs, if Bechtel cannot run these places than why would UC want to ran them, it just does not make any sense. There is no money, lots of headaches, cowboys, attitudes, arrogance, and jerks with Phd's, in other words a total mess.

For an completely unbiased and accurate account of the NNSA labs read " Los Alamos: Secret Colony, Hidden Truths — A Whistleblower’s Diary by Chuck Montano", it discusses the secret colony of the Los Alamos. It is a real page turner

May Bechtel come and crush to death LANL and all the NNSA labs!!! Destroy them completely and leave nothing behind. Ur Rah!

I know of one defense contractor that took a look at the labs, then decided they did not want anything to do with them, and will not put in a bid or even try to get any contract work, going forward. I am not sure why. I will try to find out.

What universe did this occur in? Certainly not this one.

As shown in these statistics:

Another example of why Bechtel is a disaster. Can't even read and understand the numbers. Called functional illiteracy.

What are you babbling about?

A UC-Battelle LLC for LLNL makes the most sense and would be a home run bidding team. Remember that the Battelle CEO Jeff Wadsworth was a Deputy Director at LLNL.

I just pray that UC doesn't try this for LANL and fail, which might discourage them from going with UC-Battelle for LLNL.

LANL is going to become a true "One Company" town.... a Bechtel "One Company" town.

LANL is not a "town."

I say we turn it all over to Trump University. They have a proven record.

Where is your evidence of a proven record??? Such sloppiness.

Anonymous said...

The "proven record" is one of fraud, lies, misrepresentation, greed, and pretend innocence, i.e., the essence of Trump. Hopefully, Trump's "wall" will surround only him and be made of steel bars.
