12 GeV Upgrade
The summer Scheduled Accelerator Down (SAD) is in full swing, with maintenance activities ongoing in the accelerator areas and across the site. In Hall C, the Super High Momentum Spectrometer shielding work is complete. Hall D is being readied to start the commissioning activities at the completion of the SAD. In the Hall B Torus Cryostat factory, assembly is progressing in preparation for the arrival of magnet coils later this year. In an effort to mitigate potential ergonomic concerns due to static or awkward body positioning during some of the assembly steps, modifications have been made to the set-up and tooling.

Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
A new approach to transverse momentum dependence in hard processes is described in a recent Theory Center paper. The paper introduces distributions of quarks in virtuality and relates these with distributions in transverse momentum. The approach allows one to generate hard momentum "tails" from models of "soft" distributions at small momenta.
Facilities Management and Logistics
Roadwork to Temporarily Close Section of Lawrence Drive
A map of the affected area is available via the web posting of this announcement.
The closure is scheduled to start Thursday morning, June 12, and continue throughout the weekend (weather permitting). When entering or leaving the lab via Hogan Drive during the closure period, plan to use the entrances at either Hofstadter Road or Rattley Road. If you have any questions or concerns about this work, contact Bob Sperlazza at x6241.
Part of Lawrence Drive to Become One-Way Only
The one-way street will start at the intersection of Lawrence Drive and Hofstadter Road and will continue to Hogan Drive. Those traveling north on Lawrence Drive will be required to turn onto Hofstadter Road to exit the lab. The use of Hofstadter Road will also be required when leaving the Applied Research Center and Support Services Center parking lots if you wish to exit the lab using Hogan Drive.
The one-way conversion of Lawrence Drive will occur on June 15. Awareness signs will be posted around the affected area to provide proper notification of the change.

Training Offered for New Spam and Virus Filter Software
To assist with an easy migration, there will be training sessions held on June 25, July 10, and July 23 at 2 p.m. in CEBAF Center room F113. ReadyTalk was mainly used for audio conferencing, therefore, audio conferencing will be the focus of these training sessions. There will be time at the end of each session for all questions regarding BlueJeans (H.323, web conferencing, etc.). To learn more, visit the BlueJeans webpage for information on logging in and configuring BlueJeans with your Jefferson Lab computer account.
CNI Maintenance Period Set for Tuesday, June 17, 5-10 p.m.
There will be brief network outages in the following buildings due to switch code upgrades: Test Lab (Bldg. 58), Technology and Engineering Development Building (Bldg. 55), the Free-Electron Laser (Bldg. 18), the Experimental Equipment Lab (Bldg. 90), CEBAF Center (Bldg. 12), the Support Service Center (Bldg. 28), the Radcon Complex (Bldgs. 52, 52b, 52c), the Applied Research Center, Building 19, Building 89, Building 200, Building 201, Building 34A, Building 98 and Building 96B. Not all switches within each major building will be affected, so many devices and phones will stay connected. Individual outages will last no longer than 10 minutes.
There will also be short phone outages in the ARC, SSC, Building 19, CEBAF Center, Test Lab, EEL and Building 57 to update the phone routing. Each outage will last no more than 15 minutes.
Finally, patches will be released to all Linux and Windows desktops. Plan on rebooting your desktop system on either Wednesday or Thursday to finalize the patch installation. If you have any questions or concerns about these maintenance activities, please contact the IT Division Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org, or x7155.
