From Fermilab Today: Recovery Act funds keep Fermilab wired

Electrician Stan Kramer works at New Muon Laboratory.
Electrician Stan Kramer spent the better part of a recession-hit 2009 unemployed. Then, last March, he received the call from Arlington Electric that he was needed for a newly created job at Fermilab.

Fermilab hired Arlington to do electrical work at the New Muon Laboratory with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

“If the NML funding didn't come through, I'd probably be laid off again,” Kramer said. “Knowing where I was a year ago, having a stable job guaranteed for at least the near future is huge.”

Feature Story
Particle night fever in Paris

Night of particles poster Image: CNRS Photothèque/IN2P3, CERN and Grand Rex, Design by Marie Lauvergon-Gourdon
How do you gather 2,000 Parisians and tourists in the middle of summer to talk about particle physics during a whole night? Probably following this recipe: find a magic venue, invite fascinating speakers and well-known artists, explore the frontier between science and cinema and advertise, advertise, advertise. Well, at least this is how the "Nuit des particules" – Particle Night – organised on 27 July at the Grand Rex theatre in Paris by the International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP2010) this year happened to be a success.

Students admitted to the fifth Linear Collider accelerator school

The distribution of applicants for the 2010 LC accelerator school
This year we have again had a very big demand and many qualified applicants for the "Fifth International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders." This year's school will be held from 25 October to 5 November 2010 in Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland, continuing the tradition of cycling the school between Europe, Asia and the Americas. The focus of the school will be on accelerator science related to the next-generation TeV-scale colliders, including the International Linear Collider (ILC), the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) and the muon collider.

Science on the Seine
While ICHEP participants sat in the auditorium of the Palais des Congrès and listened to the last plenary talks, people strolling along the banks of the Seine river also got a share of science: clowns paraded on Paris plage, captivated kids with science tricks and challenged adults with science questions.
