As a sudden wildfire approaches, how do you get people out of their homes? (Washington Post)

Some people can become overloaded with information and others might be communicating — or searching for communications — when they should be evacuating, said Meg Krawchuk, an assistant professor at the Oregon State University’s College of Forestry. Other times, the information just can’t get out fast enough, particularly with an unpredictable situation — leaving residents with little to go on.

Editorial: OSU report on Arnold sets the stage (Democrat-Herald)

Oregon State University’s report on the life and times of Benjamin Lee Arnold — the namesake for OSU’s Arnold Dining Hall — provides an excellent starting point for the university’s discussion of its history and whether it should rename some of its buildings.

OSU Food Science & Technology department is something to be proud of (Lake Oswego Review)

Dr. Dwaine Plaza talks race and history (Corvallis Advocate)

When asked about the work he does, Dr. Dwaine Plaza answers with what feels like urgency. He speaks rapidly, and perhaps this is because there is so much to say about the experience of African Americans in the United States, and there are many of us who have yet to hear it.

What can philosophy bring to science and society? (Corvallis Advocate)

Sharyn Clough has been doing philosophy of science at Oregon State University since 2003. The energy and passion she brings into her work can be infectious. She is quick to make a joke and share a laugh, but also slow down to concentrate and figure out the best way possible to convey her thoughts.
