Publications Training and Refresher Course Offered Sept. 27
The next Publications Training and Refresher course will take place Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 3:30 p.m. in CEBAF Center room F228. If you're new at the lab or just need to brush up on the use of the publications system, please plan to attend. If you plan to attend, contact Kim Edwards at kindrew@jlab.org by close of business on Tuesday, Sept. 26.

Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics

A new paper shows how analyticity relates the low- and high-energy regimes of hadron scattering amplitudes. This allows one to test contemporary low-energy models directly against high-energy scattering data. The approach shows potential for improving the quality and stability of data analyses in the intermediate-energy region, where the highly excited states of QCD lie.

 

Engineering

SAF 130A Pressure System Awareness Training Scheduled for Sept. 27
SAF 130A Pressure System Awareness training is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 11 a.m. in CEBAF Center room F224-225. The course will cover basic considerations and provide insight into the required process for the design, fabrication, testing, inspection, maintenance, repair and operation of pressure systems. It will be led by Engineering Division Manager, Will Oren.

This course may be required training for some staff, but is open to all staff with an interest in this information. Individuals who might benefit from the training include technicians, operators and supervisors of technicians working on pressure systems.

Environment, Safety, Health and Quality

September is National Preparedness Month, and this year's theme is: "Disasters Don't Plan Ahead. You Can." If you haven't already, take a few moments to review the resources offered by Ready.gov and the Virginia Department of Emergency Management for planning on how you and your family will respond to an emergency and how you will recover after one.

Announcements

Flu Vaccines Available by Appointment
Occupational Medicine is now accepting appointments from Jefferson Lab staff for Influenza vaccinations. As you schedule your appointment, keep in mind that for 15 minutes after vaccination, you should remain at Jefferson Lab in the presence of other people and avoid safety-sensitive activities, including driving. If you would like to be vaccinated or have any questions about the vaccine, contact Occupational Medicine at x7539 or x5585 to schedule an appointment.

Jefferson Lab Website Revamp Underway
Currently, the Jefferson Lab Communications Office is leading the effort to update the Jefferson Lab website. The updated site will be built on the Drupal content management platform, and it will feature a lighter, brighter and refreshed design that will be more user-friendly for the public, while also making it easier for researchers, employees and educators to find the resources they need. Stay tuned for more information about the re-design. If you have any immediate questions, contact jlabinfo@jlab.org for more information.

Sept. 27 Symposium to Honor George Neil’s Career, Service to Jefferson Lab
George Neil officially retired from Jefferson Lab in mid-July, after 27 years of service to the laboratory. A symposium in his honor will be held Sept. 27 to review, discuss, and honor some of the world-leading projects that he has been involved with, stretching back to his work at Stanford. More information and registration is available online.

Plan Now for the JAG Fall Festival on Nov. 1
The Jefferson Lab Activities Group will be hosting a Fall Festival and Picnic on Wednesday, Nov. 1, on the Residence Facility field. All Jefferson Lab staff, users and their families will be invited to the event, which will be filled with food, fun and prizes. This year, the event will feature two activities that will require advance planning by participants, a Homebrew Beer Competition and a Trunk-or-Treat Contest. For details and instructions for entering these events, see the full memo.

Registration Underway for 2017 Fall Golf Tournament
The Jefferson Lab Golf League has announced its 2017 fall tournament, which will be held on Friday, Oct. 13, at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club (Green Course).
