- Findings have implications for quantum computing, other technologies
Researchers have performed the first ever quantum-mechanical simulation of the benchmark ultracold chemical reaction between potassium-rubidium (KRb) and a potassium atom, opening the door to new controlled chemistry experiments

- Since garbage stored outside is the biggest attractant, storing garbage in a secure garage or shed until the morning of collection will virtually eliminate the chances of a bear visit*. If a bear does not find a food source, it will move on. Here are some safe practices for managing waste to minimize encounters with bears:

The Cajete Fire on the Santa Fe National Forest’s Jemez Ranger District was declared controlled at 12:45 p.m. Sunday, July 16, thanks to recent moisture that arrived with the monsoon season.
The 1,412-acre Cajete Fire, which started June 15 from an abandoned campfire, has been 96 percent contained since June 21.
Incident command determined that the uncontained 4 percent of the fire perimeter was not safe for firefighters to enter. The area near Los Griegos Peak is in the burn scar from the 2011 Las Conchas Fire and still contains multiple hazard trees, which can fall without warning.

FLIGHT OF THE ORIGAMI CRANES!
Los Alamos History Museum
Each year the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum receive thousands of donated paper cranes from around the world. Create YOUR crane to send to Japan at Culture and Collaboration: The Los Alamos/Japan Project, an exhibit on display at the Los Alamos History Museum until July 20. The Los Alamos History Museum will deliver community cranes to Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August. For more information, contact Museum Director
