Chris Goldfinger, the Director at Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Laboratory, and a professor at Oregon State University, said “this interesting excursion in the water height at DART buoy 46404 is not a tsunami.

Soil tests: Discover the mysteries beneath the surface (Oregonian)

Cracking the case doesn’t have to be complicated, said James Cassidy, instructor of soil science at Oregon State University. The geeks of the gardening world can delve deep into the makeup of soil, but if that’s not your thing, Cassidy has one piece of advice: Add organic matter. Whether you’ve got soil composed mostly of clay, sand or something in between, it can be improved by the addition of compost.

Do exercise DVDs work? (Guardian)
