Sunday Shout-Out picks out the week’s stories that simply slipped our minds.

Although UC Berkeley no longer ranks as a politically radical institution [1], our super nerds are totally leading the Green Revolution. The Batteries for Advanced Transportation Technologies team at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab is leading research aimed towards making more efficient and affordable car batteries. [San Jose Mercury News [2]]

Speaking of nerds and Berkeley, the United Artists Berkeley 7 theater is already expecting at least 600 people for the first showings of the final Harry Potter movie. Better get your tickets now, or just see it later like a normal human being. [Berkeley Patch [3]]

Everyone already knows about state budget cuts and how much they suck, but on the plus side, a Daily Cal editorial about the cuts was cited in the New York Times. [New York Times [4]]

Speaking of opinion pieces and the Daily Cal, if you would like to write for the Daily Cal (and, um, the New York Times?) submit something to the new Letters to the Editor section. [Daily Cal [5]]
