Researchers at UC Irvine want to make technology greener by using a $1.5-million grant to produce a prototype electronic device using environmentally friendly materials. Scientists have five years to use the grant. Professor Oladele Ogunseitan, slated to lead the research team, said it is hoped that the result of the research will be a device -- possibly a cell phone -- that works as well as current technology but uses safer components. Cell phones and other electronics, Ogunseitan said, contain metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium.

GLENDALE — As a freshman at UC Irvine in 2007, Christian Bergman was thrown onto the biggest stage as a spot starter in the NCAA Division I College World Series. Since then, a standout tenure with the Anteaters has seemingly flown by for the St. Francis High graduate, as him and his fellow Irvine seniors are looking for one last run to Omaha, Neb. and the College World Series. "Having tasted it ... it's one of those things where you want to get back so badly," said Bergman on Monday after it was announced that Irvine would play in the Los Angeles Regional, beginning Friday with a showdown against defending NCAA champion LSU. "Especially for the senior class, it's our last shot to get there."
