Munich Sees Tevatron Events Live
Art light panel
The Art Facade in Munich
Particle events of the CDF and DZero detectors are part of a unique night-time art display in Munich, Germany called "I see what I see not." Artist Tim Otto Roth transforms a 700 square-foot area of light panels, mounted on the fašade of a building in downtown Munich, into a display of science in action. Inspired by telescope images that reveal the pixel structure of the camera, Roth has chosen images from many astrophysics experiments, including images produced by particle collider experiments to create a steady flux of blinking lights on the 76 panels that can be controlled individually. The live show of the Fermilab-related creations is on display this week from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. CST. The images are available online(text in German).

Steven Lubin
Steven Lubin
are still available for this final concert in the series.

As an early musician, in his sub-specialty as fortepianist, Lubin was the first to perform Mozart concertos in period style in New York's principal halls. His groundbreaking recordings of several Mozart concertos for Arabesque served as an introduction for many listeners world-wide to period-style performance of this repertoire. The concert on Sunday will feature music by Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven.

Mixed Messages: House Appropriations Hearing on Homeland Security S&T
If viewed from a bottom-line perspective, yesterday's appropriations hearing on the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate was, on the whole, positive. In his opening statement, Harold Rogers (R-KY), chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security, commended DHS Under Secretary Charles McQueary for maintaining the necessary "disciplined system to guide homeland security research and development efforts over the long-haul." On a number of fronts, however, subcommittee members expressed frustration and in some cases anger about the directorate's efforts in the last year.

Sports fans at CDF are pinning their hopes for this year's men's basketball NCAA championship on Duke University, the only collaborating institution to make it to this year's Final Four. In the "CDF vs. DZero Bracket," Duke, the University of Illinois and the University of Pittsburgh (10-6 combined record) led CDF to a victory over DZero (4-6). Duke leads CDF's institutions with four tournament wins so far, while the University of Kansas led the DZero institutions with three wins.

Collaborating institutions for the CDF and DZero collaborations were well represented in this year's group of 65 NCAA tournament teams, with seven of CDF's and six of DZero's collaborating instutitions making the trip.

This is Duke's tenth trip to the Final Four in 19 years, and a win in the championship game would bring Duke its fourth NCAA men's basketball title-championship. To make it to the April 5 championship game, Duke must first face the University of Connecticut on April 3 at 7:47 p.m. Central time.
