David Douglas

   Previous two weeks (Sep 4-Sep 15)
     - VACATION: Aug 28-Sep 5
     - ADMIN: Office cleaning, housekeeping, throwing away/recycling
     - ADMIN: Inordinate time spent with travel; working to shorten BNL time
     - ADMIN: Couple of reviews, including one PRAB review paper
     - PERLE: Fire drill on PERLE motivations (Sep 11-12)
     - JLEIC: Working through implications of Slava tilted solenoid concept
   Next two weeks (Sep 18-Sep 29)
     - JLEIC: More work beating on tilted solenoid, comparison to DIMAD
     - JLEIC: respond to any results Chris develops on the simple CCR
       arcs (and write up the simple arc)
     - ADMIN: Continue prep of talks for collaboration meeting and Bonn
     - PERS: sedation - which I'm going to need if travel planning
       doesn't settle down...

Rui Li

   Previous two weeks (Sep 4-Sep 15)
     - ADMIN: take care matters in thesis award committee (may delay
       Cheng-Ying's nomination to next year to avoid conflict)
     - ADMIN: listen to talks at the AAC
     - JLEIC: discuss with Kirsten about her puzzle found in the ASTRA
       simulation of the magnetized beam transport---possible signal
       to noise problem
     - JLEIC: discuss with Salvador on his studies of crab cavity HOM
       coupled-bunch instability---the Rs and Q are orders of
       magnitude bigger than those found in accelerating cavities,
       suggested him to check similar data from existing crab cavities
       to see whether others have better HOM damping
     - ADMIN: get to know Eric's plan for his Fulbright application,
       in preparing recommendation letter

       electron cloud in JLEIC (for presentation at R&D meeting)
     - JLEIC: start to work on slides summarizing JLEIC collective
       effects for the upcoming collaboration meeting in BNL
