Salad Club on Nov. 21

This month we will be adding homemade soup to our salad bar. This is an opportunity to enjoy a healthy soup and salad lunch hosted by you. All you have to do is bring an ingredient that you like in your tossed salad or a soup to share with the group … and then we eat. All are welcome, join us on Thursday, November 21, at 12pm in the Hornets Nest, Wilson Hall, 8th Floor Crossover. RSVP by November 20th…

Speaker: Tomasz Wlostowski (CERN) Electronics engineer working in the Hardware and Timing Section of CERN’s Accelerator Controls Group https://white-rabbit.web.cern.ch/ Zoom: https://fnal.zoom.us/j/318840635 Location: Curia II Friday, October 11, 2019 at 11 a.m. White Rabbit is an extension of Ethernet which provides sub-nanosecond accuracy and picoseconds precision of synchronization for large distributed systems. It also allows for deterministic and reliable data delivery. The talk will provide introduction to the WR’s principles of operation, hardware/software implementation and typical applications, with particular focus on…

Workshop registration is open until Sept. 30. An electron-ion collider will be an unprecedented machine that will need to maintain high luminosity over a very wide range of center-of-mass energies while accommodating highly polarized beams and many different ion species. Addressing the challenges of this machine requires R&D in areas such as beam cooling, crab cavities and high-field magnets for the interaction points — areas in which Fermilab already has significant advancements.

Żurek shares her experiences at the 2019 Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting —from a blimp flight with Ada E. Yonath, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2009, to a panel discussion she participated in with three Nobel laureates about navigating a career path in science.

Learn about the Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) process and program at Fermilab. This information session is intended for employees thinking about submitting a Preliminary Proposal due by Aug. 30 in response to the Call for Proposals or to those who would like to learn more about the program. See the ldrd.fnal.gov web site for more information. Questions can also be sent to the LDRD Coordinator, Bob Tschirhart (tsch@fnal.gov). The Fermilab LDRD Information Session is on Monday, July 22,…

Hundreds gathered for the 52nd Fermilab Users Meeting on June 12 and 13. The events reflected this year’s theme, “Your community, your science: It’s about everyone that makes it happen.”

The HR partners will be doing a Performance Review Demo and Workshop on Wednesday, July 10, 11 a.m.-noon in the Hornet’s Nest (Wilson 8th floor crossover). Feel free to bring your lunch as we do an interactive walk through the self evaluation and manager review

The reality of suffering and evil in the world is a primary reason why many people doubt the existence and/or goodness of God.  Join us in a 6-week discussion of this topic at noon on Tuesdays beginning July 2 in the Quarium, on the 8th floor crossover of Wilson Hall.  The 6 sessions are titled “Where did Evil Come From?”, “Why do Innocent People Suffer?”, “Why Doesn’t God Do Something?”, “Is the Devil for Real?”, “How could a Loving God…
