David Douglas

 Previous two weeks (Apr 18-29)
   - JLEIC cooler: magnetized beam transport; I wrote a little
     documentation on a simplified linac-to-arc match that seems to
     help a bit with beam quality preservation
   - DarkLight: has heated up; sent around initial optics solution and
     started in on the IR I&C. Have rough solution for upstream end;
     testing before moving to downstream transport. Met with software
     and ops folks re LED and connections amongst EPICS, codes,
     and measurements as used in the ERL.
   - Cbeta: is heating up; I'm scheduled to help with a couple
     sections on the CDR - tolerances and commissioning; working with
     Adam Bartnik on the latter
   - MSU BES proposal: is in final stages. Geoff thought up an
     additional section that is being worked
 Next two weeks (May 2-13)
   - Cbeta: Continued CDR section writing, start of advising
   - Darklight: Continued preparation for summer runs, coordination
     with LED/ops, write TN on optics design
   - JLEIC Cooler: Writing TNs on magnetized beam transport

Ed Nissen

 Previous two weeks (Apr 18-29)
   - JLEIC Beam-Beam: evaluating initial growth rates for several sets
     of initial conditions with Guinea Pig
   - JLEIC: Installed and started learning Synergia
   - OPS: Completing training
 Next two weeks (May 2-13)
   - JLEIC: Continuing to learn Synergia
   - JLEIC Beam-Beam: Research/discuss modest-energy beam-beam models
     for comparisons of validity between Guinea Pig and other codes
