Gallery Talk September 3, noon
Please join us on Wednesday, September 3 at noon in the Art Gallery for an informal gallery talk by Louise LeBourgeois. Since she has spent the summer swimming in open water, she will discuss the physical relationship between her painting and her swimming: the interaction between her own body with a large body of water, and the metaphysical implications of pushing off from solid ground and moving through fluid space.

Road Closure at Main Ring Road
The Main Ring Road will be closed at A0 starting Monday August 25, 2014 and ending Tuesday August 26, 2014 at about 3:30 PM. Construction for replacing Feeder 46B will be performed during this closure.

Strength Training Registration Due August 28
This class builds endurance and strong muscles, speeds up metabolism, and improves balance and flexibility. Endurance training develops long, lean, well-shaped, toned musculature – muscles that are strong and do not fatigue easily. This enables better performance in most sports and – most importantly – everyday activities. The combination of strength and flexibility training is a winning one and will improve your ability to function at your best in your real life. The next session will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, September 4 – October 28 from 5 – 6pm at the Fitness Center Exercise Room. Fee is $82/person. Minimum 6 people. Register by August 28 in the Wellness Office, WH15W.

NBI 2014 Workshop
The 9th Neutrino Beams and Instrumentation Workshop will be held at Fermilab on September 23-26. This workshop is a unique opportunity for physicists and engineers, working on conventional neutrino beams, to meet together, and discuss intensively their equipment in operating and planned experiments. Traditionally, this workshop focuses closely on the actual physical devices that compose neutrino beam facilities, with an emphasis on operating experiments and those at advanced phases of construction or planning.
