In response to complaints from the EAG about poor cell phone reception on the ground floor of Wilson Hall, Fermilab’s RF Department has installed a new pair of cellular hot spot antennas. Simply stick your head in between them and say good-bye to dropped calls. This work life improvement is brought to you by the Employee Advisory Group.

Feynman diagrams encode information on how particle physics collisions unfold. But they have an even deeper significance. Don Lincoln gives you a peek into the deeper meaning of these important scientific pictograms.
