Uniform Convexity Property

Let $E$ be a normed vector space with norm $\|\ \|$. Is it possible to find a equivalent norm $|\ |$ in $E$ such that $E$ and $E^\star$ are locally uniform convex spaces?

Note: Im assuming the norm $\|f\|_{E^\star}=\displaystyle\sup_{|x|\leq 1}|f(x)|$ in $E^\star$.

No, as uniformly convex Banach spaces are reflexive. – martini Dec 5 '12 at 20:58
Sorry @Martini, There is one word missing! Im gonna edit it. – Tomás Dec 5 '12 at 21:01

1. It suffices to ask about $E^*$. If $E^*$ admits an equivalent locally uniformly convex (LUR) norm, then there is an equivalent norm on $E$ which makes both $E$ and $E^*$ LUR (Richard Haydon).
3. $\ell_\infty$ does not admit an equivalent LUR norm. I saw this credited to Lindenstrauss ("Weakly compact sets—their topological properties and the Banach spaces they generate") but did not read the paper.
