International Women’s Day was celebrated early Monday night in Thomson Hall.

Back to their best, Huskies break 196 but fall to Stanford

The No. 25 Washington gymnastics team didn’t come away with the win Monday night at the No. 11 Stanford Cardinal. But the UW’s away loss wasn’t due to lack of success, as the Huskies posted their best score in more than a month, a 196.125. The Cardinal finished with a score of 197.525.

Urbanization causing ‘rapid evolutionary changes,’ says UW paper

The paper explains that these evolutionary changes are happening more quickly than originally thought and may “have significant implications for ecological and human well-being.”

Meet the poo-sniffin’ pooches of Conservation Canines Saving endangered species one scat at a time

Conservation Canines knows poop. In fact, its fridge is full of “poops” from all over the world. 

At a training facility tucked into a cool corner of UW’s Pack Forest near the foot of Mt. Rainier, the Conservation Canines team trains dogs to sniff out the scat of a variety of animals. Since 1997, they’ve been collecting a myriad of scat to study, ranging from that of local killer whales to tigers in Cambodia to the sesame-seed-sized pooh of Pacific pocket mice. 

Rolandi Research Group develops new water purification system

With the use of a biomaterial found in crustacean shells, the Rolandi Research Group at the UW is working to develop a water purification system for people in developing countries.

This biomaterial, chitin, can be extracted from most crustacean shells, though the research group is specifically working with crab and shrimp shells. Chitin acts as a filter: It absorbs dyes, metals, contaminants, pathogens, and microorganisms from water.
