Computer Security: pimp up your password
Sécurité informatique : améliorez votre mot de passe
/ Stefan Lueders, Computer Security Team
In the past, we have repeatedly stated the importance of a well-chosen, complex and unique password, for your account at CERN (see the article “Oops, there it goes…”), but also for your accounts on Facebook, Amazon and all other sites (see the article “The value of your password”). While this is all still valid, it might not be enough anymore…   Of course, making your password complex (with letters, symbols, numbers, using mathematical formulas, song titles or poems; see our recommandations) is still a must.

Ombud’s Corner: “It’s not fair…”
Le coin de l’Ombud : « Ce n’est pas juste… »
/ Sudeshna Datta-Cockerill
The perception of unfair treatment in the workplace can often lead to conflict and a sense of demotivation, which ultimately leaves us feeling discouraged and helpless. What are some of the strategies that would allow managers to prevent or limit the risk of allowing these situations to develop or, on the other hand, as colleagues facing these circumstances, to cope with these feelings and to move on?   ‘Life is unfair’ is the response that we tend to hear in such situations, often accompanied by a shrug of the shoulders that suggests that we are exaggerating, and should just accept this as an unavoidable part of life! This statement, although widely repeated, brings little comfort to people who are struggling to make sense of a decision that has left them with a bitter sense of injustice or rejection. [...]

Dernières nouvelles du LHC : objectif luminosité
/ Reyes Alemany for the LHC team
The intensity ramp-up of the LHC beams resumed last Friday after the main powering system of the PS accelerator was put back in service.    The image above shows the last twenty four hours of fill #4947 in the machine. The LHC operations team kept the beams of this fill in the machine for a record 35 and a half hours.  Beams are back in the LHC [...]

Understanding parking habits at CERN
Mieux connaître les habitudes de stationnement au CERN
/ Anaïs Schaeffer
The SMB department is setting up a monitoring system in certain CERN car parks in order to evaluate their occupancy rates and subsequently make them easier to use.    Vehicle registration plate readers (red triangles) are now installed at the entrances and exits of the Le Cèdres car park (in orange) and of the Building 4 and 5 one (in blue). The 2 other car parks (Building 40 in violet and “high-voltage” in green) will be equipped at a later stage. [...]

What makes CERN’s research great
Le caractère exceptionnel de la recherche au CERN
/
As a newcomer to CERN, I find myself both honoured and humbled to have had the role of Research Director confided in me for five years.    My career has taken me from Hamburg to Stanford and Heidelberg and back to Hamburg, and although this is the first time I have been based at CERN, it is not my first involvement with the Laboratory. I was a member of the OPAL collaboration in the late 1980s, and chaired the LHCC from 2011 to 2014 [...]
