ShakeAlert impacts and applications in the Pacific Northwest
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Ford Hall

Dr. Mouse Reusch, The ShakeAlert Regional Coordinator for the PNW Seismic Network, will talk about what Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) systems mean for industry, small businesses, schools, and the average person at home in Oregon, Washington and California. Since earthquakes cannot be predicted, what benefits do a short warning of anywhere between a few seconds or a minute-plus give us? ShakeAlert is our regional implementation of EEW and as it rolls out into our lives via automatic actions at utility providers and public alerting, it can help minimize injuries to people and protect infrastructure during a large earthquake. These actions can improve the recovery time for getting society back up and running. This presentation will address some of the proposed and in-process projects that will utilize the seconds of time that EEW can provide as well as actions that individuals can take and the implications of this.
Event Image Faculty Colloquium: Michael Marks
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Putnam University Center

Please join us Friday, September 21st, at 3 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge for our second Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Presenter: Michael Marks, Professor of Politics Title: Small States and Middle Powers: Metaphors of Size and Position in International Relations Abstract: Metaphors of power are at the core of the study of international relations. Power represents the idea that humans have the ability to translate agreement into action through the harnessing of material means. Power is not the essence of the material world nor material resources themselves. It is a metaphor for the intangible qualities of persuasion that give material resources their force. This presentation examines the metaphorical notions of size and position as two ways in which power is conceptualized in international relations. For theoretical purposes, the debate between the metaphorical position of states relative to each other and their size revolves around the role power is thought to play in shaping outcomes. Approaches that conceive of states metaphorically as “big” or “small” are less prone to hypothesize changes in size as major sources of instability in international relations than approaches which conceive of states altering their position “on top,” “in the middle,” or “at the bottom” of a hierarchically ordered arrangement of states. Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there. Bill Kelm and Daniel Rouslin Faculty Colloquium Coordinators
