Announcements and notices

On Aug. 8, representatives from Fermilab’s Directorate, the DOE Fermi Site Office, FESS and general contractor Pandecon Inc. celebrated the completion of the generator project in Wilson Hall with the dedication of a plaque. The generator, which will provide electricity to Wilson Hall in the event of a power outage, was completed with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Photo: Cindy Arnold

Nelly Stanfield There will be a farewell party in Nelly Stanfield’s honor today from 1 to 3 p.m. on the second floor crossover in Wilson Hall. Nelly Stanfield is starting her next adventure—but she’s not planning it out. After 32 years at Fermilab, Stanfield, retiring on Aug. 15, said it’s time to be carefree. “I’m going to travel. Austin and Denver are up first,” Stanfield said. “After that, it’s open.” She’s hitting the road with her husband Ken, deputy director…

Fermilab’s Employee Assistance Program will offer a webinar on Aug. 16 titled “Part of the Equation.” The webinar will address how to create a home environment that supports a child’s learning, set high academic expectations and maintain good communication with your child’s teachers. It will be broadcast at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Anyone interested in viewing the event must register in advance for the program through the Fermilab EAP website with the User ID “Fermilab” and the…

Homer Clover at Fermilab in 1981. Retired Fermilab employee Homer Clover, 92, died on June 18. He started work at Fermilab on Sept. 20, 1969, as a designer in the Booster Group. At the time of his retirement in June 1986, he was a member of the Civil Construction Group. In his time at Fermilab, Clover worked on many projects—including the Tevatron Construction Group in 1981. In a FermiNews interview for his retirement, Clover describes that time as very interesting…

After a suggestion from the Employee Advisory Group and reviewing regulatory requirements and offsite penalties, Fermilab has updated its levels of discipline for moving and parking violations. These changes were made to allow management more flexibility and to more closely emulate the monetary impact of similar violations offsite. This change is reflected in the revised chapter of the Fermilab ES&H Manual on traffic safety. Previously, personnel received five days off without pay if they accrued three or more moving violations…

The Chicago Council on Science and Technology (C2ST) and the Belgrade Committee Sister Cities Chicago International will host “The Genius Spark of Nikola Tesla,” a traveling exhibit from the Tesla Museum in Belgrade in its first U.S. visit from Aug. 6 to Aug. 28, at Navy Pier. Become a member of C2ST today through August 28, and you’ll receive an invitation to the preview of “The Genius Spark of Nikola Tesla” VIP reception, exhibit preview, cultural celebration and discussion on…

– Tevatron was in cryo system and vacuum recovery mode – Maintenance work done throughout the Accelerator Complex – Pbar resumed stacking – Lightning strike ended the Meson FTBF T-1008’s current run at Fermilab Read the Current Accelerator Update Read the Early Bird Report View the Tevatron Luminosity Charts

Vladimir Mikhailovich Lobashev Editor’s note: Yury Kolomensky, UC Berkeley, and Rashid Djilkibaev, INR, translated the following from the original Russian obituary. World-renowned physicist Vladimir Mikhailovich Lobashev, 77, died on Aug. 3. He made outstanding contributions to nuclear and particle physics. Professor Lobashev made seminal contributions to the measurements of parity and CP violation, to neutron and neutrino physics and to medium-energy nuclear physics. He first discovered and then made precise measurements of a previously unseen effect in quantum electrodynamics –…

On Aug. 1, representatives from Fermilab’s Directorate, the DOE Fermi Site Office, AD and general contractors Barton Malow celebrated the completion of the New Muon Laboratory (NML) expansion project with the dedication of a plaque. The NML expansion, which will house Fermilab’s new superconducting radio-frequency test accelerator, was completed with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Photo: Cindy Arnold
