DYK - For N/S routes, the lowest numbers are in the west and for E/W routes, the lowest numbers are in the south. http://t.co/myE1FCjlOO
DYK - E/W interstate route numbers end in an even number and N/S routes end in odd numbers. Yup, we can model that http://1.usa.gov/1tqdLtu

Linda Young, Director of Argonne's X-Ray Science Division, discusses upgrades to the lab's Advanced Photon Source.
Chemist Xiaoping Wang measures the stability of a platinum cathode electrocatalyst.
Nuclear engineer Laural Briggs reviews pressure distribution results from a 217-pin fuel assembly simulation. The simulation was computed by Argonne's Nek5000 large eddy simulation tool on the IBM Blue Gene/P Intrepid supercomputer.
Margaret Butler helps assemble the ORACLE computer with Oak Ridge National Laboratory engineer Rudolph Klein. In 1953, ORACLE was the worldâs fastest computer. Designed at Argonne, it was constructed at Oak Ridge. Butler was a pioneering scientist who spent her career at the forefront of computer science and nuclear energy. Her spirit, drive, and analytical talents led to a lifetime of scientific contributions during an era when women were a rarity in a major scientific setting.
Argonne's Lynn Trahey prepares lithium-oxygen batteries for controlled environment testing.
Argonne nanoscientist Elena Rozhkova is studying ways to enlist nanoparticles to treat brain cancer. This nano-bio technology may eventually provide an alternative form of therapy that targets only cancer cells and does not affect normal living tissue.
