According to Northwest Marine Mammal Stranding Network records, maintained by the NMFS Northwest Region (NMFS, Northwest Regional Office, unpublished data), there were 15 fishery-related strandings of harbor porpoise from this stock reported on the northern Oregon/Washington coast in 2007- 2011 (2 in 2007, 1 in 2008, 3 in 2009, 3 in 2010, and 6 in 2011), resulting in a mean annual mortality of 3.0 harbor porpoise in 2007-2011. Evidence of fishery interactions included net marks, rope marks, and knife cuts (Carretta et al. 2013). Since these deaths could not be attributed to a particular fishery, and were the only confirmed fishery-related deaths in this area in 2007-2011, they are listed in Table 1 as occurring in unknown West Coast fisheries. Seven additional strandings reported in 2007-2011 (2 in 2007, 1 in 2008, 1 in 2009 , and 3 in 2011) were considered possible fishery-related strandings but were not included in the estimate of mean annual mortality. This estimate is considered a minimum because not all stranded animals are found, reported, or examined for cause of death (via necropsy by trained personnel).
This study investigated medical waste practices used by hospitals in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, which in- cludes the majority of hospitals in the U.S. Environmen- tal Protection Agency’s (EPA) Region 10. During the fall of 1993, 225 hospitals were surveyed with a response rate of 72.5%. The results reported here focus on infectious waste segregation practices, medical waste treatment and disposal practices, and the operating status of hospital incinerators in these three states. Hospitals were provided a definition of medical waste in the survey, but were que- ried about how they define infectious waste. The results implied that there was no consensus about which agency or organization’s definition of infectious waste should be used in their waste management programs. Confu- sion around the definition of infectious waste may also have contributed to the finding that almost half of the
Isolates. A total of 43 isolates of Cryptococcus gattii were analyzed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Public health institutions from the states of California, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho submitted 38 human and animal isolates from recent cases, including 28 isolates from the state of Oregon (17 human, 11 veterinary), four isolates from California (one human, three veterinary), five veterinary isolates from Washington, and one human isolate from Idaho. The CDC also had five archived C. gattii isolates, including two human isolates from Oregon from 2005, two human isolates from California from 1992 (3), and one veterinary isolate from California from 2001 (23). All isolates were confirmed as C. gattii using canavanine-glycine-bromthymol blue (CGB) medium (20). A single isolate that grew poorly and did not develop the characteristic cobalt blue color on CGB medium was confirmed as C. gattii by molecular typing, as described below.

The Western Protectors Insurance Company was incorporated on May 13, 1987 under the laws of the State of Oregon. It is a subsidiary of Oregon Mutual Insurance Company. Western Protectors writes personal property and private passenger automobile coverage in Washington and Oregon.
Collection date and locality for each spider were recorded as often as possible although many speci- mens submitted by the general public lacked complete data. From Utah and Idaho, we used databases that recorded hobo spiders starting from 1990 and 1991, respectively. For Oregon, Washington, and Montana, almost all of the spiders were collected during the 1999Ð2001 seasons. Most Canadian data came from 2000 and 2001 with additional museum records dating back to 1931. Solid dots on distribution maps indicate known, well-established populations of spiders. Open circles indicate singleton collections of probable tran- sient nature at or beyond the periphery of known distribution. Hobo spider phenology data are graphed for the PaciÞc states/province (combined data from British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon), Utah and Idaho because we had sufÞcient sample size with both date of collection and sex for these geographic regions. Phenology comparisons of T. duellica and hobo spiders used the subset of data from localities with widespread sympatric overlap (west of the Cascade Mountains in Washington and Oregon and the Coastal Mountains in British Columbia).

After 15 years under evaluation at a series of 6 experimental plots in Germany involving 11 prov- enances of P. contorta (Stephan 1976), the coastal provenances “c” and several inland “l” provenances proved to be the best. Provenances of the “l” subspe- cies from further inland had about average growth and inland “m” provenances were unsatisfactory. In another German series of 8 plots by IUFRO with 140 provenances of lodgepole pine (Stephan 1980), after 8 years the “c” provenances from the coasts of Oregon, Washington, and southern Brit- ish Columbia again grew the best along with certain inland “l” provenances from the south and centre of British Columbia. Provenances from the north of British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon, and Alaska grew unsatisfactorily, as did the mountain provenances of the “m” subspecies. Even though ecological con- ditions on German plots are different, the above- average growth of inland “l” provenances matches the results at the Kovářská location.
There was a good match between the pre- intervention trend in background checks in each of the new CBC states and its synthetic control (Fig. 1). Further detail is in Table 2 and Fig. 2. The observed average background check rates in the post-intervention period, and the counterfactual rates for the two case states are presented in the first and second rows of the table. The estimated absolute effect of the CBC laws is the difference between the observed and the counterfactual rates, presented in the third row. The last row shows the number of control states with a difference associ- ated with a hypothetical CBC policy greater than the observed difference in the case state. CBC law enactment was associated with a background check rate increase of 52.8 per 100,000 population in Oregon (an 18.0% increase); only 2 out of 27 states in the comparison pool experienced an increase greater than Oregon’s. No change was observed for Washington (4.9%; P = 0.3214).
If you submit a Claim Form, you will release Monsanto from claims related to the May 2013 discovery of genetically modified wheat on a farm in Eastern Oregon and subsequent temporary limits on certain exports of SWW. In other words, you will not be able to sue or be part of any other lawsuit against Monsanto about the legal claims asserted in these actions. You may rescind your release by returning your Settlement check to the Settlement Administrator within ten days of receipt of payment along with a signed writing rejecting receipt of payment and revoking the release.
Example: OR H 2134. This law requires the Oregon Health Authority and the Department of Human Services to adopt by rule, uniform standards for the collection of data on race, ethnicity and preferred languages of medical assistance recipients in order to more adequately assess the status and needs of Oregon's communities of color, and immigrant and refugee communities.

observations from the data, we plug values for each covariate into the models for each state and produce two separate grocery expenditure values. A summary of this exercise can be seen in figure 10. This exercise comes with caveats, and should be taken as a simple, back of the napkin type calculation. It is likely that similar households would not earn the same income living in the two different states. Given the limited data given on household employment, estimating industry specific wage penalties for workers in the state where they would earn less, likely Oregon, was outside the scope of this project. However, we find this exercise succinctly explains the results of our model—comparable low-income families, living under a more regressive state tax structure, spend less per week on groceries—and illustrates the disparate impacts created by the two tax structures.
With the highest share of college-educated workers in the country, it is a central city that draws workers from surrounding metropolitan areas that include parts of Virginia and Maryland. State labor markets, on the other hand, are more diverse. They have urban centers similar to Washington, D.C., where employers and educated populace tend to concentrate, but they also have rural areas that have relatively few employment opportunities and that demand different skill sets. Thus, comparing Washington, D.C.’s labor market to state labor markets is not an apples-to-apples comparison. For these reasons, we exclude Washington, D.C., from our state-by-state analysis and the ranking tables for occupational clusters and industry sectors.
There were varying results in population growth trends in each state and thus a clear relationship between management practice implementation of non-native species removal, head- start programs and habitat restoration/enhancement is not clearly seen (Table 8). It is necessary to explain that even though Washington has not met the recovery objective of establishing at least five populations of >200 pond turtles, composed of no more than 70% adults, there has been progress (Hays et al. 1999, Hallock et al. 2017). Washington was the state that implemented the three practices the most and upon further inspection, it is necessary to accumulate more data to fully determine how non-native species removal, head-start programs and habitat restoration/ enhancement have effected western pond turtle populations. There are certain factors that might contribute to the negative population trends in Washington such as disease outbreaks in 2003 and 2012 as well as population survey obstacles or errors that may have resulted in negative
After successfully installing one anaerobic digester to serve dairy farms in Mt. Vernon, WA, Kevin and Daryl Maas of Farm Power Northwest wanted to replicate their model and build other third‐party owned digester systems for dairy and agricultural waste. To raise the additional capital needed to finance these new projects, Farm Power used a state program called Small Company Offering Registration (SCOR), which allows corporations and LLCs in Washington to raise up to $1 million in securities sales to the public without facing the legal fees and requirements typical of securities offerings. The program has been challenging but rewarding for Farm Power, which is aiming to raise $750,000 through its initial offering. The company is currently developing several more digester projects in Washington and Oregon. For more information, visit www.farmpower.com
