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.

Criticizing Big Corporate Design in Japan, Art Inspired by Red Bean Paste, and the Latest from Kyouei Design
Presentations Today, another set of presentations from last week's Tokyo Designers Week edition PechaKucha event (PKN Tokyo Vol. 96). As the title declares ("What's Wrong with Japanese Big Corporation's Product Design?"), this presentation (in English/Japanese) by the Yo!jimbob duo is a call to arms for what they find lacking in that particular field. Takao Sakai (AZURER) took to the stage to share (in Japanese) art like you've never seen, inspired by a very special ingredient indeed: red bean paste. Kouichi Okamoto (Kyouei Design) has been surprising us consistently with his innovative -- and oftentimes whimsical -- products and installations, which he shares in this presentation (in Japanese). Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for tomorrow night's PKN Tehran Vol. 3 -- you'll find the list of presenters with links on the official event page.

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!
