Week of January 25th part 2

Here is an update from the BHS Supply Center: We are open every Tuesday
from 1:30 - 3:30 to distribute textbooks, novels, readers, materials, or
whatever. This is ongoing until the end of the year. At the first week of
each term we will add an additional distribution day on a Thursday. The
Library Team (Ms. Rosenkrantz, Ms. Irby, and Ms. Fitzhugh) will also be
open in the same location on Thursdays to hand out library books and the
like. Remember to visit the BHS Library catalog
<https://sites.google.com/berkeley.net/bhslibrary> and place hold there
first in order to start the process. The big change is that we are moving
INSIDE! We will be set up at the glass doors of the breezeway. Students in
cars can park on Milvia and walk to the doors, and students on foot or on
bikes can just come straight to the doors.  Can't make it? Request a TASK
.  Contact the Library Team <nicolefitzhugh at berkeley.net>if you have any

by Christian Bauer
What: Physics LectureWhen: Friday, February 5, 2021Time: 3:30 p.m. Pacific
About: Three of the 4 fundamental forces (all except gravity) are explained
incredibly well by a beautiful theory called the Standard Model. Despite
its great success, the Standard Model fails to explain several important
phenomena, such as the existence of dark matter and the fact that we
observe no anti-particles in our everyday lives. What's wrong?

has recently been working on ways to use Quantum Computing to solve
difficult computational problems in particle physics.
