Parts of the building filled with smoke, triggering a mid-morning fire alarm and building evacuation but authorities said no flames were discovered.
In collaboration with William O’Brien from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, assistant professor Julia Day recently published a paper in Energy Research and Social Science, that explores occupant behavior in high efficiency buildings. Their research could lead to better designed and more efficient buildings—that work for their occupants.
The success of the 161st, a unit that can trace its roots to Washington’s pre-statehood days as a territorial militia, sent a global message about the combat readiness of America’s citizen volunteers.

The symposium brought together researchers, entrepreneurs, physicians, patients, and caregivers to share knowledge about treatment innovations and key issues related to brain diseases.
It’s too soon to know if we’ll have a repeat season, but the recent blitzing of winter-like storms is consistent with the presence of a La Nina that’s developing in the tropical Pacific Ocean.
As winter arrives, the Facilities Operations Grounds Department is preparing it snow removal plans and priorities and wants to hear from people who have specific snow-removal needs because of disabilities.
David James is an expert on caterpillars but his latest work, The Book of Caterpillars: A Life-Size Guide to Six Hundred Species from around the World, is written for a general audience. The beautiful, full-color, life-size photos provide a glimpse into the insect world few might realize exists.
When Justin Denney was still an aspiring, young sociologist, he strove to understand the dynamic forces that shape and perpetuate social inequality. Then, in graduate school, he came across the signal texts of renowned sociologist and Washington State University alumnus William Julius Wilson.
Getting ready for school on a snowy day can be quite a challenge for young children. In addition to eating breakfast, getting dressed and packing up workbooks, they have to remember extra things like boots, gloves, a hat, and a coat.
