12 GeV Upgrade
Sigma Phi, the French company building the Dipole, Q2 and Q3 magnets, has made significant progress with assembly over the last month. The Dipole is currently slowed down by problems with fitting the liquid nitrogen supply and return manifolds to the thermal shields. Q2 is also experiencing some delay as a different subcontractor is behind schedule producing the cradle needed for the next assembly step. All other internal components of the Dipole are permanently fixed in place, and Q2, with the coil now suspended by the barrel portion of its vacuum vessel, is not far behind. Preparation is moving ahead for the cryogenic, vacuum and instrumentation interface systems of both the Dipole and Q2 magnets. The Dipole interface "Cryogenic-Control Reservoir" will be attached to the magnet in Hall C, whereas the systems for the Q2 and Q3 magnets will be integrated in the factory.
On the Jefferson Lab site, checkout of the Super High Momentum Spectrometer detectors, trigger system and electronics continues. Field mapping of the HB magnet has been performed, so that final components of the beamline may be designed. Important improvements to the superconducting magnet power and protection systems were engineered during the recent extensive testing of the HB magnet. Those improvements, as well as software patches, are being applied to the controls for the other magnets.

What Did You Really See?
If this misreading were to happen when vital information is involved, such as a valve identification, a serial number or a sequence of operations, one can now appreciate how serious the potential adverse consequence of mis-identification can be. So, when selecting a letter style or when writing something with a marker, take the time to make sure you use type or print that is clear and legible with ample space between the characters, to ensure your communication is read clearly. And when you need to read something of importance, be sure to slow down and read through the item carefully, to ensure you don't misread the communication.
