Jan. 22, 2020 Town Hall Meeting Scheduled On Thursday, Jan. 23, at 1 p.m., there will be an optional town hall meeting hosted by Lab Director Stuart Henderson regarding the DOE site selection decision for a building a future Electron-Ion Collider.
This event will not be streamed or recorded.
INCLUSION SURVEY - CLOSES JAN. 28
Have you taken the inclusion survey yet? There's still time! On Thursday, Jan. 9, you received an email from the third party vendor, Culture Amp, requesting that you take a confidential survey on inclusion. The survey link from that email will remain open until Tuesday, Jan. 28. The Inclusion Survey announcement email can be found here. Don't forget! Official limited-edition JLab commemorative coins will be available for those who complete the survey. After the survey closes, an announcement email will detail how to retrieve your coin.
RUN, HIDE, FIGHT ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING - JAN. 24
The Emergency Management team is pleased to welcome Special Agent Mike Freeman, FBI Norfolk, to host a Run Hide Fight (RHF) training session. Freeman will also share an investigator's perspective and lessons learned in the aftermath of the tragic Virginia Beach shooting. The training will be held Friday, Jan. 24, from 10:30-11:45 a.m., in the CEBAF Center auditorium. There is no advance registration and the session is open to the lab community. For questions, contact Tina Menefee at x5490.
ACTION REQUIRED: ANNUAL SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING - DEADLINE JAN. 31
The deadline to complete the Annual Security Awareness (GEN034) training is Friday, Jan. 31. The updated training module reviews the basic awareness initiatives of security regarding people, property and information, so the lab community has a safe and secure work environment that fosters creative scientific advances. As a reminder, this training is mandatory for Jefferson Lab site access. Failure to complete the training by the deadline will cause badge disruption in all areas on-site.
For questions about the Annual Security Awareness training, including compatibility issues related to the training, please contact Tish Creery or Tara Tyndall at x6119. ACTION REQUIRED: PROPERTY TRAINING & INVENTORY VALIDATION - CLOSES FEB. 5
It is mandatory to complete the Annual Property Custodian Refresher (GEN150) training, then complete your inventory validation by Wednesday, Feb. 5. This applies to all equipment or property in your possession. Keep in mind, other institutes or national DOE labs loan us equipment which we return upon project completion. Ensuring proper owner accountability with Property Management protects you and the lab from possible from liability issues. Questions? Emailproperty@jlab.org or call x5682, x5899 or x7348. TRANSVERSE-MOMENTUM-DEPENDENT PARTON DISTRIBUTIONS
FROM DRELL-YAN DATA
The analysis of hard scattering processes involving nucleons in the initial state allows one to obtain information about their internal structure, encoded in the parton distribution functions (PDFs). A recent paper presented a high-precision extraction of unpolarized transverse momentum dependent PDFs based on Drell-Yan lepton-pair production data from different experiments and spanning a wide kinematic range. The analysis accounted for resummation of logarithms of the transverse momentum of the vector boson up to next-to-next-to-next-to-leading log (N3LL) accuracy, including non-perturbative contributions, which enabled one to obtain very good agreement with the data. NEW OPEN HOUSE DATE - SEPT. 12 Upon further consideration of the September local event and holiday schedules, Jefferson Lab has decided to revise the date to Sept. 12. In the event of a long-lasting forecast weather event, the inclement weather date is set for Sept. 26.
MOMO's TO-GO MEALS
In a hurry? Not to worry! MOMO’s To-Go meals are available from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Quark Café. "The meals allow the JLab community to have a hot meal or hot soup outside of regular cafe hours," says Martha Bennett, MOMO's chef and owner. The packaged meal can be found in the refrigerator and is rotated regularly.
NEW VENDING MACHINE ITEMS
Do you need a little caffeine or electrolyte boost... you asked and event services heard you! Vending machines across the lab campus now carry a variety of updated refreshments. You'll find coffee pods, Gatorade, AMP energy drinks and Starbucks Iced Coffee in the snack machines located in the following buildings:
CEBAF Center Bldg. 12
Support Services Center (SSC) Bldg. 28
Technology and Engineering Development (TED) Bldg.
Experimental Equipment Lab (EEL) Bldg. 90
Applied Research Center (ARC)*
*Coffee pods are not available in the ARC. For vending machine comments, questions or suggestions, contact Gaye Davenport at x7246.
MOMO'S CHINESE LUNCH BUFFET - JAN. 23
MOMO's is offering an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet in honor of the Chinese New Year on Thursday, Jan. 23, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., in CEBAF Center.
Scope out the full menu here. For questions, contact Gaye Davenport at x7246.
EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: TREVA FERGUSON
If any one of the roughly 720 full-time employees at the the lab want to know how to save for a 401(k) retirement plan, they should ask Treva Ferguson. Ferguson, a Human Resources benefits consultant, can also tell them everything they need to know about medical, dental, life, disability and vision insurance accounts provided by the lab, among other benefits-related topics. “It’s very rewarding,” Ferguson says. “I get energized when I help a person and I’m passionate about what I do.”
