  • Nicki McCraw Ambassador Spotlight | The Whole U
    race a few months ahead of time I just did the Snohomish Women s 10k I m going to do the Shore Run 10k next and I have a half marathon in October Half marathons are my thing I ve done seven half marathons in the past couple years I love the distance because it s hard enough that I have to really train for it but it s still doable Nicki s race numbers decorate her cube I m going to be 50 in March so I m doing a marathon to celebrate I ve registered for the Phoenix Marathon and Lauren Updyke is helping me with my training plan I also did a holiday fitness challenge with HR folks that challenged us to work out 30 out of 35 days between Thanksgiving and New Years Day I ran 31 out of 35 days for a total of 132 miles There were a few days when I didn t really feel like going for a run but I got out there when I remembered the challenge and thought about those folks who were exercising with me If I have something out there that I m trying to complete or I ve made some commitment then I ll do it It doesn t sound like you ve slowed down Not at all but in some of those races I ve really struggled In the Cinco de Mayo race I fell five times because I had so much joint pain that day But I finished it I keep telling my wife I m trying to be stubborn but smart I work with fantastic UW Medicine doctors to make sure that I m not doing anything that hurts my joints They know that running and being fit is important to me so they work with me to ensure that I can keep doing that When I run I m a back of the pack person I m not fast but I really enjoy it and I feel like I can t be that sick because I run all the time One good thing that came out of all the health stuff is that it really taught me to take advantage of every day If I feel good today and I can run I do it because I m not positive I ll be able to do it tomorrow That s the positive spin It gets really old managing health issues all the time But I m really fortunate I have great doctors and great insurance so I can get the care I need What direction do you think The Whole U should go from here I think health means different stuff to different people The thing I like about The Whole U is that it s not a one size fits all program It allows people to really focus on the things that are important to them For me it s running but for someone else it might be something different I

  • Scientists ready to study magma formation beneath Mount St. Helens | UW Today
    St Helens said John Vidale director of the University of Washington based Pacific Northwest Seismic Network Magnetotelluric monitoring will be done at 150 sites spread over an area running 125 miles north to south and 110 miles east to west which includes both Mount Rainier and Mount Adams Most of the sites will only be used for a day with instruments recording electric and magnetic field signals that will produce images of subsurface structures Besides the UW collaborating institutions are Oregon State University Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University Rice University Columbia University the U S Geological Survey and ETH Zurich in Switzerland The work is being funded by the National Science Foundation Mount St Helens has been the most active volcano in the Cascade Range during the last 2 000 years and has erupted twice in the last 35 years It also is more accessible than most volcanoes for people and equipment making it a prime target for scientists trying to better understand how volcanoes get their supply of magma The magma that eventually comes to the surface probably originates 60 to 70 miles deep beneath St Helens at the interface between the Juan de Fuca and North American tectonic plates The plates first come into contact off the Pacific Northwest coast where the Juan de Fuca plate subducts beneath the North American plate and reaches great depth under the Cascades As the magma works its way upward it likely accumulates as a mass several miles beneath the surface As the molten rock works its way toward the surface it is possible that it gathers in a large chamber a few miles beneath the surface The path from great depth to this chamber is almost completely unknown and is a main subject of the study The project is expected to conclude in the summer of 2016 For more information contact Vidale at 310 210 2131 or vidale uw edu The lead scientist on passive seismic monitoring is Kenneth Creager a UW professor of Earth and space sciences who can be reached at 206 685 2803 or creager ess washington edu The lead scientist for magnetotelluric monitoring is Adam Schultz professor of geology and geophysics at Oregon State University 541 737 9832 or adam schultz oregonstate edu The Imaging Magma Under St Helens website is at http imush org Share this Facebook Twitter Email Print Tagged with Earth and space sciences geoscience Mount St Helens Office of News Information Browse Articles Contact Us Community Photos UW Classifieds University Photography UW Experts Search UW Today Search Browse Categories Select Category Administrative Affairs Archive Arts and Entertainment Buildings and Grounds Education Engineering Environment For UW Employees Health and Medicine Honors and Awards Learning News Releases News Roundups Politics and Government Profiles Research Science Social Science Technology UW and the Community Latest Stories Ferroelectric switching seen in biological tissues 2 hours ago Zippy electric micro cars coming to campus for sustainability research 6 hours ago UW students electric hybrid car takes 2nd

  • New computer program aims to teach itself everything about anything | UW Today
    their content and pixel arrangements not simply by words displayed in captions Users can browse the existing library of roughly 175 concepts Existing concepts range from airline to window and include beautiful breakfast shiny cancer innovation skateboarding robot and the researchers first ever input horse If the concept you re looking for doesn t exist you can submit any search term and the program will automatically begin generating an exhaustive list of subcategory images that relate to that concept For example a search for dog brings up the obvious collection of subcategories Photos of Chihuahua dog black dog swimming dog scruffy dog greyhound dog But also dog nose dog bowl sad dog ugliest dog hot dog and even down dog as in the yoga pose The technique works by searching the text from millions of books written in English and available on Google Books scouring for every occurrence of the concept in the entire digital library Then an algorithm filters out words that aren t visual For example with the concept horse the algorithm would keep phrases such as jumping horse eating horse and barrel horse but would exclude non visual phrases such as my horse and last horse Once it has learned which phrases are relevant the program does an image search on the Web looking for uniformity in appearance among the photos retrieved When the program is trained to find relevant images of say jumping horse it then recognizes all images associated with this phrase Major information resources such as dictionaries and encyclopedias are moving toward the direction of showing users visual information because it is easier to comprehend and much faster to browse through concepts However they have limited coverage as they are often manually curated The new program needs no human supervision and thus can automatically learn the visual knowledge for any concept said Santosh Divvala a research scientist at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence and an affiliate scientist at UW in computer science and engineering The research team also includes Carlos Guestrin a UW professor of computer science and engineering The researchers launched the program in March with only a handful of concepts and have watched it grow since then to tag more than 13 million images with 65 000 different phrases Right now the program is limited in how fast it can learn about a concept because of the computational power it takes to process each query up to 12 hours for some broad concepts The researchers are working on increasing the processing speed and capabilities The team wants the open source program to be both an educational tool as well as an information bank for researchers in the computer vision community The team also hopes to offer a smartphone app that can run the program to automatically parse out and categorize photos This research was funded by the U S Office of Naval Research the National Science Foundation and the UW For more information contact Farhadi at ali cs washington edu or
