12 GeV Upgrade
At the request of DOE's Office of Nuclear Physics, Stephen Meador, Director of the Office of Project Assessment in DOE's Office of Science, convened a team of 14 experts and 8 observers in an Independent Project Review of the 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade Project at Jefferson Lab on October 6-7. The purpose of the review was to assess all ongoing aspects of the project including technical, cost, schedule, management, and environment, safety, and health. The review team provided valuable feedback in all areas, and a total of three recommendations in the Close-Out Report. The committee congratulated the 12 GeV Team on the excellent progress made since last November and was impressed by the magnets during the tour of Halls C and B. The committee also highlighted the project’s safety record and improved project management systems and processes appropriate for working the project to complete.

Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
A new paper derives a relativistic, model-independent relation between finite-volume matrix elements of external currents and the physically observable infinite-volume matrix elements involving two-particle asymptotic states. The result holds for states that couple to any number of channels with two scalar bosons. This formalism will, for example, allow future lattice QCD calculations of the ρ-meson form factor, in which the unstable nature of the ρ is rigorously accommodated.
The Engineering Division's Machine Shop has been busy supporting activities throughout the lab. Some of these activities include:

Protecting Your Eyes
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that in 2012, of the 65,320 injuries, nearly a third were to the eyes. The number of eye injuries for off-the-job tasks were just as staggering. Do you wear proper eye protection when doing work at home? Such activities as cutting the grass, weed-whacking, handling pool chemicals, pouring gasoline, shooting, etc., all have significant eye-injury potential.
Whether you are at work or at home, take the moment to procure and wear the appropriate eye protection for the task at hand. This simple preparation can save your eyesight for a lifetime of moments.
