12 GeV UpgradeThe Physics Division conducted an Equipment Readiness Review (ERR) for the Hall C Horizontal Bend (HB) magnet on March 25. The ERR is an essential part of the process for safely testing and commissioning each superconducting magnet being built as part of the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade project. Following the successful review, the HB magnet was placed on the Super High Momentum Spectrometer (SHMS) carriage on Tuesday, March 31, and cryogenic connections are now underway. In the area of 12 GeV civil construction, above-ground work for the tunnel air conditioning has been hampered due to the weather, but work is progressing.

Records and Information Management Month Fact of the Week
Jefferson Lab stores its inactive records that have not yet reached disposition retention at the Federal Records Center, which is operated by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Jefferson Lab stock room carries the boxes we are required to pack the records into. Each box measures 15" x 12" x 10" to fit properly on the shelves at both the Federal Records Center and in the Jefferson Lab temporary record holding area. When transferring inactive records to Records Management, be sure to use the correct boxes. No other boxes will be accepted. For more information, contact Kim Edwards.
RIM Trivia Question of the Week
The dimensions of a standard records box that is used at Jefferson Lab is described in this week's fact of the week. How many inches of legal-sized material will fit in each box? All responses must be received by Kim Edwards by noon on Friday, when a random drawing will take place of all correct answers. One person will win a Starbucks gift card! (Winners will be notified via email no later than 5 p.m. Friday following publication. Limit one gift card win per person.)
The answer to last week's question: Gandalf smoked, drank and used candles in the archives room - any of those responses would have been accepted. Onish Kumar won the Starbucks gift card in the random drawing.
JSA Minority/Female Undergraduate Research Assistantship
Jefferson Lab is seeking candidates for a Research Assistantship. JSA will provide funds to support a junior or senior level student at the university during the 2015-2016 academic year. In recent years, students have used the funds to aid the exploration of 3D printed scintillator detectors for the study of field emission in accelerating cavities, as well as a presentation at the SESAPS conference on work done on the PrimEx-II Collaboration. Nominations will be accepted through April 17. For more information, visit the website.

Environment, Safety, Health & Quality
When we lose that focus, perhaps by mentally skipping ahead to the next step before the first one is complete or thinking about another topic altogether, it's more likely that we'll make a mistake, miss the target or get something wrong. All those undesirable outcomes can lead to accidents or injuries. So the message is: "Pay attention!" Think about and look at what you want to do as you perform a task, and you will less likely have an undesirable outcome.
