The 2011 Les Houches workshop was the first to confront LHC data. In the two years since the previous workshop there have been significant advances in both soft and hard QCD, particularly in the areas of multi-leg NLO calculations, the inclusion of those NLO calculations into parton shower Monte Carlos, and the tuning of the non-perturbative parameters of those Monte Carlos. These proceedings describe the theoretical advances that have taken place, the impact of the early LHC data, and the areas for future development.
The BABAR Silicon Vertex Tracker (SVT) has been efficiently operated for six years since the start of data taking in 1999. Due to higher than expected background levels some unforeseen effects have appeared. We discuss: a shift in the pedestal for the channels of the AToM readout chips that are most exposed to radiation; an anomalous increase in the bias leakage current for the modules in the outer layers. Estimates of future radiation doses and occupancies are shown together with the extrapolated detector performance and lifetime, in light of the new observations. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V.

Measurements of on-shell ZZ production are described, using data collected by DELPHI in 1997 and 1998, at centre-of-mass energies roots = 182.6 GeV and 188.6 GeV, respectively. Results obtained in each of the final states q (q) over barq (q) over bar, mu (+)mu (-) q (q) over bar e(+)e(-)q (q) over bar, nu[([nu])over bar]q (q) over bar, l(+)l(-)l(+)l(-), and nu[([nu])over bar]l(+)l(-) are presented. The measured cross- sections for on-shell ZZ production via the tree-level doubly- resonant graphs (NC02) are: sigma (NC02) (182.6 GeV) = 0.38 +/- 0.18 (stat) +/- 0.04 (syst) pb, sigma (NC02) (188.6 GeV) = 0.60+/-0.13 (stat) +/- 0.07 (syst) pb. They are consistent with the Standard Model expectations of 0.25 and 0.65 pb at each energy.
