What's the story with life sciences and Triad?

So what's the story with life sciences and Triad? Under LANS it was CLES with life sciences being more important than earth sciences. Triad has flipped it to CELS by demoting life sciences underneath earth sciences. Is this a sign that Triad plans to phase out life sciences at LANL and move the work to other Battelle run Labs?

Could also be a recognition that earth sciences (e.g., seismology) are much more important to LANL's core nuclear missions than biofuels are.

LANL lost its BSL-3 recently and this may be the beginning of the phase out of bio work there and transitioning the efforts to other, better suited locations.

The letters were rearranged in alphabetical order... And if you read the acronym CELS aloud, it obviously sounds like “cells”, which sounds more biological than CLES. Finally, given Batelle's focus on bio-sciences and their choice of the CELS leader, our glorious B division is primed for growth, while EES will continue to thread water. Hope this helps and clarifies things. This rumor is officially dead.

Thank you 6:59 for explaining what many have wondered for years. It never made much sense as to why geologists, such as Wallace, were kept around the Lab when they did not contribute much to the intellectual vibrancy of the place. Now we understand that it was their special ability to "thread" water that endeared them to the leadership.

The problem is of course the geologists have contributed to a huge amount to the vibrancy of the lab. The second problem is that no one ever wonders why geologists are kept around at the lab or why we have always had geologists. If you work at the lab you would be the very first person to say such a thing.

Look just be honest you have a problem with Wallace, fine but that does not give you permission to say or make up stuff about the lab or what the lab does or a claim a position that no at the lab actually takes as being a position that people at the lab take. To be be clear you free to make up BS but you will be called out for it.

August 2, 2018 at 11:23 AM completely missed the irony and humor of August 2, 2018 at 9:29 AM's post. So sad, and so typical of our hyper-sensitive times. No one has any time anymore for levity or enjoyment of the human condition in its complexity and craziness.

August 2, 2018 at 11:23 AM is just another example of the craziness, who knows no humor. Again, sad.

False, the 9:29AM hates Wallace and it blinds everything he sees.

I think the real question is what happens to T Division in this org?

So of course you know August 2, 2018 at 9:29 AM personally and therefore everything he/she thinks about anything, right? Now you have to explain what "blinds everything he sees" actually means in English. Like I said, crazy and humorless. Sad.

If you work at LANL is not hard to guess who this is and yes they hate Wallace for very specific reasons. They may even have a point in their particular case however their hatred is so strong that they make sweeping claims about anything and everything that could be possibly related to Wallace.

That's some weird, messed up stuff you have put out there.

Some would say that our Wallace hater is a weird and messed up person...actually every single person that had to deal with this individual would say that, but yes you are right it is weird and messed up, so we are in agreement.
