The Washington ground squirrel (Urocitellus washingtoni) is a squirrel found in the Pacific Northwest, in the states of Washington and Oregon of the Northwestern United States. The Washington ground squirrel lives in sagebrush or grassland habitats in the Columbia River Basin of Washington and Oregon. Washington ground squirrels hibernate / estivate 7-8 months each year. Adults breed shortly after emergence from hibernation in January or February and juveniles emerge from the natal burrow in March. Juveniles disperse away from the natal burrow and settle into new areas. All Washington ground squirrels gain weight and prepare for hibernation in late spring and early summer. Juveniles immerge for estivation in June or July, and adults begin estivating earlier, often in June. One radiotracking study focused on dispersal of Washington ground squirrels. It found that 72% percent of juvenile males dispersed in April. Dispersal distances ranged from 40-3521 meters and the median dispersal distance was ...

Group B Streptococcus (GBS) serotype (Ia, Ib, II-IX) correlates with pathogen virulence and clinical prognosis. Epidemiological studies of seroprevalence are an important metric for determining the proportion of serotypes in a given population. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of individual GBS serotypes at Madigan Healthcare System (Madigan), the largest military tertiary healthcare facility in the Pacific Northwestern United States, and to compare seroprevalences with international locations. To determine serotype distribution at Madigan, we obtained GBS isolates from standard-of-care anogenital swabs from 207 women of indeterminate gravidity between ages 18-40 during a five month interval. Serotype was determined using a recently described molecular method of polymerase chain reaction by capsular polysaccharide synthesis (cps) genes associated with pathogen virulence. Serotypes Ia, III, and V were the most prevalent (28%, 27%, and 17%, respectively). A systematic review of
The New Moon today, the 21st of July, will create a Total Eclipse of the Sun. Even though it will only be visible in the Northwestern United States, Alaska and Hawaii, eastern India, Shanghai, Southeastern Asia and Northeastern Oceania, it will have a profound effect on all of humanity.. Peace on earth is more likely right now than ever before!. Do you believe that the alignment of the stars makes people a bit crazy from time to time?. I for one feel unusual astrological influences, usually BEFORE my astrologer friends share the sky news with me.. Well the sky news is pretty huge this month!. As well as the Total Eclipse, we are also experiencing 2 lunar eclipses in early July and early August that increase the effects of the Total Eclipse of the Sun.. The Moon is much smaller than the Sun, but when it passes directly in front of the Sun, its magnetic energy is so powerful that it blocks the light of the Sun from the Earth by absorbing the light..

Abstract: This thesis examines temperature total daily maximum load (TMDL) and TMDL implementation plans in the Pacific Northwest in order to determine the common and unique strategies and challenges to TMDL implementation. Water temperatures for many rivers and streams in the Pacific Northwest region are above state water quality standards, threatening habitat quality for cold water salmonids. Th... read moree study area included seven case study watersheds, which were investigated through interviews and document reviews. The results of the case study investigations revealed that, in many cases, entities other than the State Department of Environmental Quality were responsible for TMDL implementation; the line of authority between entities implementing the TMDL is unclear, which may lead to confusion between implementers; and the water quality data collected by many groups is not coalesced into one centralized location for comprehensive analysis, which may lead to inefficiencies in TMDL ...

The competition or rivalry for the use of water resources among economic sectors of the Pacific Northwest and among geographical regions of the western United States has intensified in recent years. This rivalry and the long run prospects for water shortages have increased the demand for research concerning the productivity of this resource in alternative uses. This demand exists because the distribution and use of water resources require investment which typically comes from both public and private sources. Private and public planning groups seek answers to questions regarding future water resource development alternatives. Agriculture has historically been a major user of water in the Pacific Northwest. A substantial portion of total investment in water resource development has also been, in agriculture. As a result water use planners and decision making bodies are necessarily interested in water use in agriculture. The success of water resource planning requires answers to questions regarding ...

Pacific Northwest stages have been formally named and defined. This naming structure is also used informally for Alaskan faunas. California Neogene stages were proposed early in this century, are in need of redescription, and their usage is informal. Precise correlations between the three regional sequences have not yet been achieved, due to the low number of co-occurring species and the general lack of planktonic microfossils in these largely shallow-water faunas. The objectives of ongoing research include the documentation of the faunas of California and Pacific Northwest stages; formal description of California stages; an improved correlation between regional stage sequences; refinement of age estimates for stage boundaries; and, the establishment of Neogene stages for Alaskan faunas ...

We recently documented a strong relationship between northeast Pacific sea-level pressure (SLP) and coastal North American sea surface temperature (SSTs) and surface air temperatures (SATs), concluding that atmospheric circulation changes produced nearly all observed coastal warming from 1900 to 2012 (1). In our report, we present a simple, successfully cross-validated time-series model that reproduces interannual, decadal, and century-long variations in the SST record from current and prior SLP anomalies. Our primary SLP data, from the National Centers for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), depict a century-long SLP decline in the northeastern Pacific, as previously shown for the central North Pacific and supported by independent precipitation records (2).. Abatzoglou et al. (3) speculate that SLP indices from HadSLP2 and 20th Century Reanalysis (20CR) datasets may be more reliable than NCAR, particularly before 1921. Early HadSLP2 and 20CR SLP data rely heavily on monthly ship-based estimates that ...

In order to identify bacteria that assimilate dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) in the northeast Pacific Ocean, stable isotope probing (SIP) experiments were conducted on water collected from 3 different sites off the Oregon and Washington coasts in May 2010, and one site off the Oregon Coast in September 2008 and March 2009. Samples were incubated in the dark with 2 mM 13C-NaHCO3, doubling the average concentration of DIC typically found in the ocean. Our results revealed a surprising diversity of marine bacteria actively assimilating DIC in the dark within the Pacific Northwest coastal waters, indicating that DIC fixation is relevant for the metabolism of different marine bacterial lineages, including putatively heterotrophic taxa. Furthermore, dark DIC-assimilating assemblages were widespread among diverse bacterial classes. Alphaproteobacteria, Gammaproteobacteria, and Bacteroidetes dominated the active DIC-assimilating communities across the samples. Actinobacteria, Betaproteobacteria,

Human influence on the hydrologic cycle includes regulation and storage, consumptive use and overall redistribution of water resources in space and time. Representing these processes is essential for applications of earth system models in hydrologic and climate predictions, as well as impact studies at regional to global scales. Emerging large-scale research reservoir models use generic operating rules that are flexible for coupling with earth system models. Those generic operating rules have been successful in reproducing the overall regulated flow at large basin scales. This study investigates the uncertainties of the reservoir models from different implementations of the generic operating rules using the complex multi-objective Columbia River Regulation System in northwestern United States as an example to understand their effects on not only regulated flow but also reservoir storage and fraction of the demand that is met. Numerical experiments are designed to test new generic operating rules ...
This research examined the applicability of the theory of reasoned action to school-age children. Using structural equation modeling, we longitudinally modeled childrens attitudes, norms, intentions, and behavior with regard to drinking alcohol. Respondents were 1,061 children attending public schools in the northwestern United States. Attitude, norms, and intentions (measured when the children were in 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th grades) were used to predict alcohol use 1 year later. Two modifications of the model improved the overall fit at each grade level: separating attitude into 2 dimensions (positive and negative), and adding a path from social norm to behavior. The theoretical and practical implications of these results are discussed. ...
Rocky mountain spotted fever (RMSF) is the second most common tick-borne disease in the United States. This disease, caused by bacteria, is transmitted through the infected bite of the wood tick found in the west, and the American dog tick in the southeast. It was first recognized in the northwestern United States in the 1700s, but due to a geographic shift, it now occurs in southern and eastern portions of the U.S.. Peak incidence for RMSF is from late spring to early fall. Approximately two-thirds of patients remember having a tick bite. Between 500 and 1,000 cases of RMSF are reported annually, with peak rates in the south Atlantic region (32%) and the west-south-central region (24%). Symptoms of RMSF vary with fever, rash, extremity swelling, headache, nausea, vomiting, cough, and muscle aches. RMSF can result in encephalitis, myocardial necrosis (heart muscle destruction), and respiratory complications (pneumonia). Severe cases may result in shock and kidney failure. Symptoms develop 2-14 ...
The emergence of ,, previously regarded as a predominantly tropical pathogen, in the temperate climate of the North American Pacific Northwest (PNW) in 1999 prompted several questions. The most prevalent among these was the timing of the introduction of this pathogen to this novel environment. Here, we infer tip-dated timing estimates for the three clonal , populations observed in the PNW, VGIIa, VGIIb, and VGIIc, based on whole-genome sequencing of 134 , isolates and using Bayesian evolutionary analysis by sampling trees (BEAST). We estimated the nucleotide substitution rate for each lineage (1.59 × 10,, 1.59 × 10,, and 2.70 × 10,, respectively) to be an order of magnitude higher than common neutral fungal mutation rates (2.0 × 10,), indicating a microevolutionary rate (e.g., successive clonal generations in a laboratory) in comparison to a species slower, macroevolutionary rate (e.g., when using fossil records). The clonal nature of the PNW , emergence over a narrow number of years would ...

Paying clinicians to reach a fixed performance target might produce little gain in quality, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association.. Physician group quality reports were evaluated by PacifiCare Health Systems for its California and Pacific Northwest (Oregon and Washington) networks. Three measures of clinical quality were compared - cervical cancer screening, mammography, and hemoglobin A1c testing.. The only statistically significant improvement seen was in cervical cancer screening. The California network improved by 3.6 percentage points more than the Pacific Northwest network.. Groups with low baseline scores improved the most; groups with high scores improved the least. Groups that started out with high standards understood that they only needed to maintain the status quo to receive the bonus payments. The authors speculated that financial rewards for quality were too low to motivate substantial departures from the underlying trend in quality ...

According to the study, more than half of the intermediate wetlands are projected to convert to fast-drying ephemeral wetlands by the year 2080. These most vulnerable ponds are the same ones that now provide the best habitat for frogs and salamanders.. At risk are unique species such as the Cascades frog, which is currently being evaluated for listing under the Endangered Species Act. Found only at high elevations in Washington, Oregon and California, Cascades frogs can live for more than 20 years and can survive under tens of feet of snow. During the mating season, just after ponds thaw, the males make chuckling sounds to attract females.. They are the natural jesters of the alpine, incredibly tough but incredibly funny and charismatic, said Maureen Ryan, the other lead author, a former UW postdoctoral researcher who is now a senior scientist with Conservation Science Partners..

EPA has selected the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community for a $170,213 brownfields cleanup grant. Hazardous substances grant funds will be used to cleanup the Lime Storage site at 12939 Casino Drive, Anacortes, Washington. The site was contaminated with heavy metals, dioxins, and creosote during several decades of use as an agricultural chemical storage and processing site. Grant funds will be used to excavate and remove contaminated soil, chemical debris, and creosote-treated wood pilings. The Swinomish Tribal Community has high poverty and unemployment rates. The two main sources of income for the tribe are the Northern Lights Casino and the Chevron Station, which are adjacent to the cleanup site. The location is highly desirable for commercial development. When the target site is cleaned up, the community plans to redevelop it as part of a commercial complex that could include a hotel, stores, and a recreational pier. ...

We have constructed a densely populated, saturated genetic linkage map of black raspberry and successfully placed a locus for aphid resistance. Black raspberry (Rubus occidentalis L.) is a high-value crop in the Pacific Northwest of North America with an international marketplace. Few genetic resources are readily available and little improvement has been achieved through breeding efforts to address production challenges involved in growing this crop. Contributing to its lack of improvement is low genetic diversity in elite cultivars and an untapped reservoir of genetic diversity from wild germplasm. In the Pacific Northwest, where most production is centered, the current standard commercial cultivar is highly susceptible to the aphid Amphorophora agathonica Hottes, which is a vector for the Raspberry mosaic virus complex. Infection with the virus complex leads to a rapid decline in plant health resulting in field replacement after only 3-4 growing seasons. Sources of aphid resistance have been ...

A measles outbreak in Washington state prompted Gov. Jay Inslee to declare a state of emergency on Jan. 25. As of Thursday, 55 cases have been confirmed this year, most of them in unvaccinated children under age 10.
Elk The Washington Blue Mountains, in 1989, regulated elk hunting with a spike-only general hunting season. This was in response to a decline in the elk population creating a heavy female biased population. By the mid 1990s the area then became known for its mature males and trophy hunting.[10] During winter months elk will prefer to use moderately steep south slopes rather than northern slopes because of the southern slopes being warmer and containing less snow.[11] Throughout the Blue Mountains physiographic section, foresters have been, nearly a century, attempting to create a regulated, scientific forest, in a process referred to as restoration.

Preface The years 1895 and 1896 were very important to the history of Eclectic Medicine and ultimately to the modern day licensed and accredited version of a practice known as naturopathy. Naturopathy is both an accedited-licensed and unaccredited-unlicensed form of medicine taught and practiced in the United States. No other medicines use the same name to…
Thus, this apex is rather exiguous and only develops later. 4 Embryogeny of Equisetales Unfortunately, among Articulateae, only the genus Equisetum with an exoscopic embryo can be found in nature presently. In Equisetum arvense, studied by SADEBECK (1878), the first cleavage, perpendicular to the axis of the archegonium, oblique according to LAROCHE (1968), produces on the canal side a cell which will produce the stem and on the bottom side a cell which will produce the foot and the first root (Fig. A First cleavage, perpendicular to the axis of the archegonium; b, b formation of four cells at the lower pole; c two-octant state; d beginning of foot growth between the suspensor sp and the cleavage No. IV; e more advanced proembryo showing the hypertrophic extension of the foot fwith respect to the apex a; f apical face of the embryo with distended primordia on the foot surface; h cotyledon leaves; 12 first epicotylleaf; rradicle; g development of the vegetative axis, yet subterranean, and of the ...

While it is largely understood that there would be relatively few deaths directly resulting from the detonation of a dirty bomb device, there is reason for concern associated with radioactive dust inhalation and plume spread. IsoFIX is designed for large scale urban application and prevents both smearable and wind-borne spread of contamination in the face of emergency response vehicle and foot traffic. The IsoFIX material is easily broadcast over large areas and is non-toxic. Nanoparticle technology contained in the coating is designed to bond with target radionuclide contaminants to prevent their spread. In the event that the area is determined not to be contaminated, the coating can be left in place to biodegrade. The IsoFIX coating was developed under contract for the Technical Support Working Group (TSWG) with funding support from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Defense ...

My yard is not large, however, so I dont know how many more trees I can add. Now if I could just some neighbors to add trees... some of their yards look so barren. By having trees in my yard, I also provide an example. Woody shrubs and trees may also help (less lawn, and some carbon sequestered in the wood, although not nearly as much as a shade tree). I do have lots of those, in the form of dwarf fruits, and shrubs. (After writing this, I think that I have just decided to let the Eucalyptus - which I was going to pollard near the ground and grow as a shrub - grow as a tree instead. Its north of the house, near the street, so wont shade the garden ...
where PFD is photon-flux density (mol photons m−2 d−1), SA is surface area of illuminated surface (m2), Biomass is biomass of macroalgae in tank (g).. The SGR of Pacific dulse were highly correlated with SLD over a range of 0.0048 to 0.036 mol photon g−1 wet weight d−1 (Demetropoulos and Langdon 2004a). At very high values of PFD, the SGR of Ulva rigida can be as high as 20% d−1 (Rautenberger et al. 2015). In contrast, the highest value of SGR for sea lettuce in our work was only 6.2% d−1. The reduced growth rate for sea lettuce in our work is a result of much lower SLD and longer growth periods. Therefore, if the initial density is held constant, the growth rate will vary with the seasonal variation in PFD and with day length. For production conditions, a seasonal density criteria may be desirable.. The observed seasonal variation in our growth rates were best correlated with day length (Fig. 2) followed by temperature (Table 1) and salinity. There was a better correlation between ...
A few perennial vegetables are making themselves known in the winter garden. I have one small chive-like onion that I gave up on a few years ago, but keeps coming up. The leaves are now about 6 inches long. Last week I used them as flavor in a savory crepe. Rhubarb is showing signs of life. No where near eating, of course. Then there are the onions, garlic, and shallots that I planted and commented on earlier ...
Tinnitus is the perception of sounds that have no external source. The severity of tinnitus varies from an occasional awareness of ringing, hissing, buzzing, roaring, clicking, or other rough sounds in one or both ears, to an unbearable and incessant noise that drives some people to consider suicide. Tinnitus isnt a phantom sound or condition … Read more. ...
would have sued DOE , USEC, and contractors which would have drug OSHA into court. If they had levied anover a $100,000,000 fine against USEC and Lockheed, OSHA would have to be paying people to go to court to testify for the next 50 years, Lawson explained. (See download ). Lawson told of seeing it all as an eyewitness and in his opinion, the actions amount to murder. They were (covering it up) for profit. Thats racketeering. The people died because they bypassed safety systems. Everything I saw is admissable in court. Lawson has insight too into improprieties during the 21st Century D & D clean up projects at Piketon. He has been told that current (i.e. 2014) workers and those that have worked on the D & D of the facility cut clogged pipes with UF6 (enriched uranium) inside. The six to eight inch pipes were clogged with 90% assay and above. A source told Lawson, I could barely put my little finger inside a clogged pipe. Which leads to an unanswered question: Where did the D & D ...
