New working group boosts electroweak physics
Some 20 physicists from both the DZero and CDF collaborations formed the Tevatron Electroweak Working Group, aiming to increase the accessibility of electroweak physics at Fermilab. "We want to standardize the analysis inputs, combine all our results, and interpret them so that the rest of the physics community can use our results easily," says founding member Ashutosh Kotwal of Duke University and CDF. The group will address the properties of the W and Z bosons and the top quark, and their implications for the Higgs boson.

Less Than a Month: Outlook on FY 2004 Appropriations Bills
The new fiscal year begins in less than one month. While the outlook on wrapping up the FY 2004 funding bills is vastly better than it was last year at this time, there will be many hours of negotiations before the thirteen appropriations bills are complete. Although science and technology funding is fairly noncontroversial, it faces stiff competition from domestic and defense programs, at a time when the projected federal budget deficit continues to rise.

Bob's Blackout Bulletin
Power Outage Next Week
Bob Mau
Bob Mau
If you're an early bird, you might want to sleep in next week. On Monday, September 8 from 7:00 a.m to 7:30 a.m., there will be a power outage that will affect most of Fermilab's site. Bob Mau reports that the main power feeders that run off the master substation will be moved over to the Kautz Road substation. Wilson Hall, the entire foot print area, external beam lines, Booster, CUB, CHL, Feynman Computer Center, CDF and DZero experimental areas will all lose power during this thirty minute time period. The Main Injector and the village will not lose power. It is recommended that you shutdown your computer before leaving for the day.
