Event Description

Experience the First Friday Art Walk at Southern Oregon University’s Hannon Library. The library holds a special open house every first Friday, from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM. Visitors can view the art and artifact collections on display in the university library while enjoying live music and free refreshments. Guided tours will run every half hour, but visitors are also welcome to explore on their own and even meet our guest artists.

This May, the library will feature two new photography exhibits by Southern Oregon University students. “Homescape: An Exploration of the Meaning of Possessions” by Heidi Dalgarno is a collection of poetry and haiku that examines the meaning of personal possessions. “What It Means to be Devine” by Vanessa Devine is an artistic reenactment of Devine’s memories and life experiences. Both artists will be available to discuss their work.

In addition to temporary exhibits, Hannon Library also has a wide variety of permanent displays with something to interest just about anyone. There is a number of paintings and prints on display, including historical photos from Jackson County icon, Peter Britt. There’s an extensive series of work from renowned artist Betty LaDuke. Kids will enjoy meeting Swampy, the giant swamphorse sculpture created by SOU alum Tricia Johansen, and visitors of all ages can appreciate the Schuman Collection of Musical Instruments. The Hearn History of Printing and Writing Collection features historical books and manuscripts from around the world, and the incredible bronzes from Meera Censor’s Humanitarians for Justice, Nonviolence and Peace Collection shouldn’t be missed. And let’s not forget the library’s most recent addition, the We Are Here sculpture, a signature piece of local culture.

New database reveals plants' secret relationships with fungi |

Leiden researchers have compiled information collected by scientists over the past 120 years into a database of plant-fungal interactions. This important biological data is now freely available for researchers and nature conservationists. Publication in New Phytologist.

Project in Morocco combines hemp and solar to go totally off grid | Hemp Today

A team of organizations has completed construction of a ground-breaking eco-building in Morocco that combines hemp construction with a high-tech solar energy system for total independence from the electrical grid. The SUNIMPLANT project, designed as a single-family dwelling, was created as an entrant in the recent “Solar Decathlon” organized by the United States Department of Energy and Morocco’s Centre de recherche en Energie solaire et Energies nouvelles. The biannual international competition challenges teams of students to design and construct solar-powered buildings. The most recent edition was hosted in Ben Guerir, Morocco, the first time the competition has been held on the African continent.

Arundhati Roy: Our Task is to Disable the Engine | Progressive International

While the human race is momentarily incarcerated, and even as a record-size hole opens in the ozone layer above the Arctic, the earth has given us an indication of her ability to heal. Even in our moments of sickness and loss we cannot help but hold our collective breath in wonder at the show she has put on. But plans are afoot to put an end to all of that. In India, for example, just in these last few days, a large portion of a tiger reserve is about to be turned over to a religious gathering—the Kumbh Mela—which attracts tens of millions of Hindu pilgrims. An elephant reserve in Assam is being marked off for coal mining, and thousands of acres of pristine Himalayan forest in Arunachal Pradesh marked off for submergence by the reservoir of a new hydroelectric dam. Meanwhile, not to be outdone, President Trump has signed an executive order allowing mining on the moon.

This New Electric Jet Concept Uses Air Friction to Generate Power | Robb Report

While the most current trend in business aviation is all about creating the next generation of electric and hybrid-powered aircraft, a new kind of space race could emerge if the physics actually support the theory behind Eather One. Designer Michal Bonikowski’s concept is probably four or five generations ahead of the current mode of thinking, but Bonikowski told Robb Report that he was inspired by the recent Maveric concept by Airbus. “That aircraft’s unique design helps reduce drag while providing more cabin space,” he said. “I have been thinking a lot about this lately, and wondered what could happen if a big company would like to create an electric plane.”
