Computer Security: today’s paranoia, tomorrow’s reality
Sécurité informatique : paranoïa d'aujourd'hui, réalité de demain
/ Computer Security Team
When the Internet opened its gates to academia in the late 80s and, together with the World Wide Web a few years later, to the general public, computer security was considered somehow irrelevant. People pointing to vulnerabilities and security risks (“hackers”) were labelled as paranoid. [...]

Behind the scenes of GS: keeping CERN clean
Dans les coulisses de GS : place nette au CERN !
/ Antonella Del Rosso
More than 350,000 square metres to be maintained, two different cleaning companies due to CERN’s sites being in two different countries, underground installations where cleanliness is a question of safety… the CERN team in charge of supervising cleaning services overcomes all these challenges to ensure that our workplace remains clean and pleasant every day.   Ensuring the cleanliness of sites containing a huge variety of buildings is an enormous challenge for the two experts in the GS Department in charge of cleaning services.

From hadron therapy to cosmic rays: a life in biophysics
De l’hadronthérapie aux rayons cosmiques : une carrière en biophysique
/ Christine Sutton
In 1954 – the year CERN was founded – another scientific journey began at what is now the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Beams of protons from a particle accelerator were used for the first time by John Lawrence – a doctor and the brother of Ernest Lawrence, the physicist after whom the Berkeley lab is named – to treat patients with cancer. [...]

New patent in sight for CERN-made technology
Nouveau brevet en vue pour une technologie développée au CERN
/ Antonella Del Rosso
A portable gamma and beta radiation survey meter capable of operating in a strong magnetic field is the most recent subject of a CERN patent application. Developed by members of the HSE Unit, the new instrument may find applications not only in research laboratories but also in hospitals where radioactivity is managed in the presence of magnetic fields. [...]

Indian high-school students dive into particle physics at CERN
Des élèves indiens au cœur de la physique des particules au CERN
/ CERN Bulletin
CERN hosted its first group of high-school students from India in a week-long programme in June, with lectures, visits and hands-on activities that brought them a little closer to the world of particle physics. Abhishek Anand, whose internship with CMS coincided with this programme, documented his experience for the CMS blog (see here). [...]

Taking SESAME to the classroom
Le projet SESAME dans les salles de classe
/
The 2014 High School Teacher Programme (HST) is well under way, and this year it has a distinct Middle Eastern flavour, with eight teachers from the region among the 54 taking part.   Established in the late 1990s, HST is a three-week residential programme in English designed to give teachers a taste of frontier research and promote the teaching of modern physics in high schools [...]

LS1 Report: testing Plan B
Dernières nouvelles du LS1 : tester le plan B
/ Anaïs Schaeffer & Katarina Anthony
A team from the TE Department is currently testing the secondary electrical network for the LHC’s main dipoles – that is, the power circuit used in the event of a quench (loss of superconductivity). This secondary network is essential for the safety of the machine and has been strengthened as part of the SMACC project (see here) [...]
