The Not-So-Secrets of Oak Ridge
BY ALICE TAYLOR
@ VOL 17
ON NOV 12, 2015
“When I tell people what I do, they often say ‘oh, you must not be able to tell us anything about it, it must be top secret’. That is totally not true.”
In The Not-So-Secrets of Oak Ridge from PechaKucha Night Knoxville’s 17th volume, Alice Taylor provides some insight into what physicists are up to at the Lab. Most people in Knoxville know that some sort of science is happening in Oak Ridge, but they often don’t know what it's about and how it might one day impact their lives. She explains how the huge new facility - the Spallation Neutron Source - helps explain weird materials like ferromagnets and superconductors. We enter the world of quantum mechanics to explain how we investigate the tiny, microscopic electrons which ultimately make a magnet stick to your fridge.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, April 20th, 2016.

University of Tennessee Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism
BY JAMES ROSE
@ VOL 19
ON MAY 12, 2016
What can we do together that we can't do individually? This is the
question that serves to unite the efforts of UT College of Architecture
and Design, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, and ORNL as partners in
the Governor's Chair for Energy and Urbanism. Based in the
downtown FabLab and taught in conjunction with Phil Enquist and
others from SOM and ORNL, the Governor's Chair studios challenge
students to tackle tough design problems. One such challenge is the
architectural application of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. In
the spring of 2015 a graduate architecture studio was tasked with
developing an understanding of the opportunities and limitations of
this new technology. These findings foregrounded the design and
construction of the AMIE prototype. More akin to natural processes
like seashell growth than familiar construction, the process of
designing and building AMIE has created a platform for global
leadership in this emerging field for UT, SOM, and ORNL.

Damn Fine Bourbon
Did you know? To this day, 95% of all bourbon whiskey is made in the state of Kentucky. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Damn Fine Bourbon" from PKN Louisville Vol. 7, Conor O'Driscoll makes it clear from the get-go: he's here to talk about bourbon. The subtleties of the spirit are not by any means lost on Conor, who goes into great depth on the history of bourbon's origins. He then goes into detail on the process of crafting a truly great bourbon -- down to the type of wood used (charred white oak) to make the barrels!
