    There won't be any statues in Berkeley of Calvin Fong, who died suddenly Aug. 20 at the ridiculously young age of 58. There won't be any streets or schools named after him, either. That's because he was a legislative staffer, not an elected official, and staffers don't get credit for the good they do - even someone like Calvin, who did a lot of good indeed in his 21 years on the fifth floor of City Hall, first as an administrative aide to Councilmember Margaret Breland, then doing the same job for Councilmember Linda Maio and finally as chief of staff for Mayor Tom Bates.

    Marian Cleeves Diamond, a UC Berkeley neuroscientist who studied Albert Einstein's brain and was one of the first to show that the brain can improve with enrichment and intellectual stimulation, has died. The school, where Diamond was a professor emerita of integrative biology, confirmed that Diamond died at her home in Oakland on July 25. She was 90. In 1984, after receiving four pieces of Einstein's preserved brain , Diamond discovered that it had more cells known as support cells than an average brain.
