Birthday Celebration

  • In September 2001,the University of Chicago hosted a contest to design a website for Enrico Fermiís 100th Birthday,with the first prize a trip to Chicago.This winning group of four high-school seniors and their instructor journeyed from Instituto G.W.Leibniz in Bormio,Italy,and toured Fermilab on April 29.They had previously visited Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago, viewing archives that include Enrico Fermiís Nobel Prize and personal papers.

    Their prize-winning web site:

    Scientific content,layout and design and organization of the site were all elements that the judges considered awarding the top prizes. Cristian Boffo (left)of Fermilabís Technical Division, who is originally from Italy, shows the visitors the site model on the 15th floor of Wilson Hall.

Mulholland Drive
USA (2001),145 min.Dir:David Lynch. Lynchís atmospheric film noir intertwines the stories of Betty (Naomi Watts), a perky Hollywood hopeful, and Rita (Laura Harring), amnesiac from a car accident along Mulholland Drive, with strange and macabre doings in the world behind the scenes of showbiz. Originally a pilot for a TV series,the film weaves together disparate plot lines and characters in a way that may or may not ultimately make any rational sense...you decide.
