12 GeV Upgrade
Installation of the CLAS12 spectrometer in Hall B is progressing well on all systems. As of last week, four of the six Forward Time-Of-Flight (FTOF-2) detector array panels were installed. Due to geometrical constraints arising from the installation of the Region 3 drift chambers, the final two FTOF-2 panels won’t be installed until later this summer. With the hazardous overhead work throughout the experimental hall, and with many people and different activities in a congested envelop, communication and coordination is paramount for the safety of personnel and equipment.

Last week's correct answer was "Filing Clerk." Thanks to all who played and congratulations to DeLisa Stanfield for winning the Starbucks gift card for being randomly selected out of all correct answers.
Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
A new paper recounts a personal view of developments in hadron physics over the past 40 years. How properties of the proton such as its mass and spin, that seemed simply understood in terms of constituent quarks 40 years ago, are now seen to reflect the complexity of the femto-universe of quarks and gluons: a complexity that the next decade of experiments at Jefferson Lab aim, with on-going theoretical developments, to explain in terms of QCD.
