Dale-abration: Celebrating Dale Newbury's 50 years at NIST

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend this "Dale-abration"! (but I appreciate that Dale loves a good pun), so I just wanted to say here that Dale is a gift to the scientific (or any other) community: Dale is intelligent, thoughtful, friendly, creative, funny, dedicated, hard working, helpful and focused (pun intended!).

As a NIST associate I'm sure he will stay active and continue to teach and advise the next generation of microanalysts and he has done (and continues to do) for me.  I will never forgot my first scientific meeting in Hawaii where he was more than happy to answer all my silly microanalysis questions, especially after hours in the bar, drawing many figures and equations on paper napkins (as one does!).

What a scientific and community asset Dale is to all to all us!  Please post some pictures to this topic from the event.  Here's one from another event in 2014:



This is Dale at a Cameca EPMA and it appears that we are examining the planet Saturn or is it Uranus?   Attached below is a PowerPoint from that workshop, and from it we can clearly see that he is a scholar, a gentleman and a comedian!
The only stupid question is the one not asked!

We're slightly adjusting the duration of the webinar presentations tomorrow morning (10 AM US Pacific Coast time).

Anette's talk on PictureSnap/PictureSnapApp will be a little shorter and my talk on trace elements will be slightly longer (just too much material to talk about regarding trace elements!):
