Oregon Ducks Lacrosse: Up And Down All Season Long
Oregon came into 2011 with high hopes and big expectations. They were still unranked on March 22nd but started to climb into the top 25 the next week. The Ducks went from 24 to 20, to 18. Last week they climbed an additional spot to #17. For a 4-6 team with losses to Santa Clara, Cal, Michigan, Chapman, Michigan State and Colorado, the Ducks look improved. Early in the season, they lost games that they might win now, but those Losses won’t disappear as the season wears on.

The Ducks’ biggest win came recently over the University of Minnesota-Duluth 7-6 and BHSVideoDad has great highlights with narrative, as always.
UMD used a slow down, spread offense, a la Johns Hopkins earlier in the year, and they were able to keep the game close. After going down 3-0, UMD fought back furiously but couldn’t overcome the difference late in the game. Nick Johnston came up big for Oregon time and time again, while the Ducks’ offense came out hot and sputtered a bit as the game wore on.
Oregon’s biggest upside is that they allowed their opposition to control the pace of the game but they still came out with the W. This is a big accomplishment that can’t be overlooked. Although Oregon did follow up their win over UMD with a loss, it was to Colorado, a team that is really just starting to show their potential.
Oregon has 2 games coming up against San Diego State and Portland State that are simply MUST WIN games. Then they take on Simon Fraser and Cal Poly and they have to take at least one of those Top 20 matchups. If they can do that, and beat Oregon State at the end of their regular season, the Ducks will be 8-7 3 wins over Top 20 teams. A couple of bad losses will haunt them, but they should still get a shot at Denver. And once a team gets there, anything can happen.
Another top notch shot!

SDSU Lacrosse Tops Oregon for First Win of 2021 Season
SAN DIEGO – The San Diego State lacrosse team earned its first win of the 2021 season with an 11-9 nighttime victory over the University of Oregon Ducks Friday, Feb. 19 at Aztec Lacrosse Field.
The Aztecs’ scoring attack was led by senior captain Bailey Brown whose stat line includes three goals on five shots and four draw controls. Junior Cailin Young, senior Emily Resnick, and senior Lexi Tan each added two points to SDSU’s total. Resnick’s impressive performance throughout the night include an assist, four ground balls, five draw controls, and a caused turnover. Sophomore Camdyn O’Donnell added a score and three assists for four total points while adding two ground balls to her stat line. Oregon was led by two goals from Nakeeya McCardell, Lillian Stump, and Hannah Hilcoff, while both Morgan McCarthy and Brooke Rooney each assisted on two scores.
Young and junior Shelby Hook drove the Aztecs’ defensive play as the duo each caused two turnovers. Young added two draw controls to her stat line while Hook also accumulated three ground balls throughout the evening. Goalkeeper Katy Sharretts led the team in ground balls with five on the night while earning 13 saves and a caused turnover. For Oregon, the Ducks’ Rooney caused three turnovers while netminder Alle Dunbar recorded a stat line of four ground balls and 13 saves.
Oregon’s Stump scored the first goal of the same with just 1:37 expired from the game clock, but the Aztecs responded just 30 seconds later with Young’s first points of the day. The Ducks would add another goal before San Diego State went on a 5-0 scoring run, bringing the game’s score to 6-2. Scoring then went back-and-forth between the programs to close out the first half, as the Ducks added two points to the board for a score of 4-6, the Aztecs retallied with two scores of their own, and Oregon finished the first 30 minutes of play with two goals to head into the halftime break with the score at 8-6.
The Ducks opened the second half with a score from McCardell with 24:13 left to play, leading to a 10-minute scoring drought between the two programs. The Scarlet and Black responded with 14:29 left to play, scoring on an unassisted goal from Resnick to bring the score to 9-7. Both teams would close the night with two more goals before the clock expired.
In a back-and-forth battle, the Aztecs outshot the Ducks 29-to-26, won the draw control battle 13-to-8, and earned nine more free position attempts than their opponent throughout the match-up. The Ducks won the turnover battle 17-to-18 and both netminders grabbed 13 saves.
“I am proud of how we competed tonight,” noted head coach Kylee White. “Oregon is a tough opponent but we did not back down throughout the entire game and played together to earn the win.”
SDSU hits the road for the first time in 2021, traveling to Tempe, Ariz. for a match-up with their third consecutive Pac-12 foe in the Arizona Sun Devils. The opening draw is set for 1 p.m. MT.

Pac-12’s CFP chances not quite dead even after Oregon loss
By JOHN MARSHALL
The knee-jerk reaction to Oregon’s loss to Stanford was that the Pac-12’s College Football Playoff hopes are gone.
The conference still has a shot to get a team into the playoff for the first time since 2017, but the road definitely got a lot tougher with Stanford’s 31-24 overtime win over the Ducks on Saturday.
“Our team has to make sure that times like this, when the noise surrounds your program, you got to make sure that you stick together and have each other’s back,” Oregon coach Mario Cristobal said. “And go attack the processes that are going to put you back on track to be 1-0, to continue playing in a conference that has a lot of good football teams, a lot of good football players.”
The Pac-12 has been mostly an afterthought for the playoff in recent years due to perception, lack of performance on the field and its teams knocking each other off.
The conference hasn’t had a team reach the playoff since Washington in 2017 and hasn’t won a playoff game since Oregon reached the title game in 2014. The Pac-12’s last national championship in football was by Southern California in 2004, a title that was later vacated by the BCS due to NCAA sanctions.
The conference has lacked consistently dominant teams like in the SEC, Big 12 and, until this season, Clemson in the ACC.
Oregon has won the past two Pac-12 championships, but missed out on a chance at the playoff in 2019 thanks in part to a late-season loss to Arizona State. The Ducks finished 4-3 during the pandemic-ravaged 2020 season, so were never in consideration.
Oregon started the season as the Pac-12’s best bet to end the four-year CFP drought, opening at No. 11 in the preseason AP Top 25. The Ducks picked up a massive resume-building win by beating No. 3 Ohio State in Week 2 and worked their way up the poll to No. 3.
Then came the Stanford stumble, dropping Oregon to No. 8 in .
The good news is the loss came early in the season.
If the Ducks (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) can run the table the rest of the way and inch up the CFP rankings — the first one is Nov. 2 — an early-season road loss to a conference opponent isn’t going to look as bad as one late in the season. That early win at Ohio State also could be enough to erase the negativity of the Stanford loss if the Ducks can win out.
And one loss doesn’t automatically count a team out. In the seven years of the playoff, just 11 of the 28 qualifying teams have been undefeated.
Oregon still has road games against solid teams, UCLA and Utah, and closes out the season against surprising Oregon State (4-1, 2-0). The Ducks have been battling injuries but have a bye week before playing California on Oct. 15.
“In terms of anything regarding anything outside of our next practice and our next game, it’s never been relevant to the process,” Cristobal said. “Do they know that big picture implications are always out there? They always will be out there. I don’t think you try to overhype anything.”
UCLA appeared to be the Pac-12’s only other hope of reaching the playoff, but lost to Arizona State last week to drop to 3-2.
And don’t count out the 22nd-ranked Sun Devils.
They have the road win over then-No. 20 UCLA on their resume and the only loss so far has been to BYU, which moved up to No. 10 in this week’s poll.
Arizona State (4-1, 2-0) has two tough games coming up, at home against Stanford and at Utah, but get by those and run the table, it could be in contention for a playoff spot.
Maybe it’s a longshot, but don’t discount their chances in what’s been an unpredictable season — outside of Alabama and Georgia — so far.

Bears keep afloat: Drowned by Ducks, swim past Beavers
It’s a little over halfway through their fall 2021 season and the Bears have managed to keep afloat despite a number of early-season challenges. On Thursday, Oregon sank Cal 2-0 to end September’s slate of matches. The blue and gold then regrouped Sunday against Oregon State, thrashing the Beavers 2-1 to start the new month.
In its first of two Pac-12 matchups this past week, Cal came out flat. Beyond the statistics, in which the Bears took 11 shots to the Ducks’ 10, the game appeared to be one-sided. While Oregon capitalized on gaps in the Bears’ typically steady backline, Cal struggled to keep up.
“They’re very well organized, very well coached… We also knew that they had good speed behind our line,”said head coach Neil McGuire. “Their strength in set pieces was something we couldn’t stop.”
By the 26th minute, the Ducks’ first score came earlier than the Bears had planned. During a routine corner kick by Oregon, a Cal defender rifled the ball abruptly past junior goalkeeper Angelina Anderson in a demoralizing own goal.
Thereafter, Cal’s climb was an uphill battle.
In the 54th minute, the Ducks mounted on the pressure. Off of a perfectly placed cross from Oregon midfielder Caitlin Shaw, defender Anna Phillips was there for a header that slid through the right side of the goal. To try and answer back, the Bears had arguably their closest scoring opportunity in the 86th minute of action.
From a through ball by senior defender Sydney Collins, freshman forward Karlie Lema nearly pocketed a rocket past Oregon goalkeeper Leah Freeman. But Freeman, who currently owns an impressive save percentage of nearly 88%, dove to her left in time to punt away the shot and shut out the Bears in Berkeley.
Oregon now sits in the fifth overall spot in the conference with a record of 6-1-4. Previously behind them was its rival in Oregon State, which boasted nine total wins and only one loss heading into Sunday’s matchup against the Bears.
“Our players came in with the right mindset in preparation for a challenge in Oregon State,” Mcguire said. “We were more composed with the ball. We were more poised with possession. … We were able to keep the ball longer, making it more difficult for them to use their counterattack.”
Back in Edwards Stadium for its third consecutive home game, Cal outpaced the Beavers right from kickoff. By setting up offensive opportunities through its midfield unit, including senior Paige Metayer, junior Kaylee Nguyen and freshman Marleen Rohde, the home team looked comfortably in control throughout 90 minutes of play.
In setting the tempo, Cal struck gold first. Fourteen minutes before the halftime break, the Bears charged their way down the attacking third. Freshman forward Alexis Wright grounded a shot straight to Oregon State goalkeeper Bridgette Skiba, who fumbled the ball while attempting to recover from her feet. Swooping in for a finish was junior forward Natalie Hueston, who flew the ball high above the head of a stumbling Skiba and into the back of the net.
Remarkably, even having outshot the Beavers 19 to four, Cal’s second goal didn’t come until the 81st minute. Off a corner kick, Rohde converted while falling to her feet a couple of feet out from the goal line — the German local’s first-ever goal with the team.
“Marleen can play a number of positions. She can play the six, she can play the eight, she can play the ten — so, ultimately anywhere in the midfield, centrally,” McGuire said. “We know she’s a goal-scoring threat… but she can also control the tempo of the game. ”
Oregon State also had its fair share of impressive moments. In just two minutes after the Bears had connected on its first goal, the Beavers answered back on a set piece: Forward Brianna McReynolds drilled a shot from distance to put her team back on the board. But after such a spectacular play, Oregon State failed to follow up with another score.
With Sunday’s win, Cal is now tied for the fifth-best team in the Pac-12, alongside Oregon and Colorado. Having racked up four total points since the start of conference play, the Bears remain just as competitive as their neighboring counterparts and hope to continue swimming for future games.
“This year, the depth in the conference is as good as I’ve seen it,” McGuire said. “We know that every match is going to be a challenge. … But, we are continuing to grow from strength to strength on the details and look forward to our next two matches.”

Eugene ( yooJin ) is a city in the US state of Oregon in the Pacific Northwest. It is located in the southern part of the green Willamette Valley, near the confluence of the Mackenzie and Willamette Rivers, about 50 miles (80 km) east of the Oregon coast.
According to the 2010 census, the population of Eugene was 156,185; it is the capital of Lane County and the third most populous city in the state after Portland and Salem, although the state’s latest estimates may have outnumbered Salem.The Metropolitan Statistical Area of Eugene Springfield, Oregon (MSA) is the 146th largest metropolitan area in the United States and the third largest in the state after the Portland metropolitan area and the Salem metropolitan area. The population of the city for 2019 according to the US census was estimated at 172,622 people.
Eugene is home to the University of Oregon, Bushnell University and Lane Community College. Several locations in Eugene are believed to have served as the inspiration for locations in The Simpsons .This includes Max’s Tavern and a statue of an Oregon pioneer on campus. The city is known for its natural environment, recreational opportunities (especially cycling, running / jogging, rafting and kayaking) and focus on the arts, along with its history of civil unrest, protests and green activism. Eugene’s official slogan is “Great City for Art and Outdoor Activities.” It is also called the “Emerald City” and “Track Town, USA”. Nike Corporation originated in Eugene.In 2022, the city will host the 18th World Athletics Championships.
The first people to settle in the Eugene area were known as the Kalapuis, also called Calapooia or Calapooya. They made “seasonal walks” through the countryside to gather and preserve local produce, including acorns, wapato and camas bulbs, and berries. They stored these products in their permanent winter village. When crops began to decline, they returned to their winter villages and engaged in hunting, fishing, and trade. They were known as the Chifin Kalapuis and called the Eugene area where they lived “Chifin”, sometimes written as “Chafin” or “Chiffin”.
Other Kalapuyan tribes occupied villages, which are now also within the city of Eugene. Pee-you or Mohawk Calapooians, Winefelly or Pleasant Hill Calapooians, and Lungtum or Long Tom. They were close neighbors of Chifin, were of mixed marriages and were political allies.Some authorities have suggested that the Calapooia Kalapuyans were related to Pee-you. It is likely that since Santiam had an alliance with the Brownsville Kalapuyans, Santiam’s influence also went so far in Eugene.
According to archaeological evidence, the ancestors of the Kalapuis could have lived in Eugene for as long as 10,000 years. In the 1800s, their traditional way of life underwent significant changes due to devastating epidemics and settlements, first by French fur traders and then by the overwhelming number of American settlers.
Settlement and Influence
Man Kalapuya, circa 1840
By the early 19th century, French fur traders settled in the Willamette Valley seasonally. Their settlements were concentrated in the French Prairie community in Northern Marion District, but may have extended south as far as Eugene. Having already established relationships with indigenous communities through intermarriage and trade, they negotiated land with the Kalapuis. By 1828-1830. They and their wives by the natives began to occupy the land year-round, growing crops and grazing animals.In this process, mixed-race families began to influence indigenous peoples’ access to land, food, and traditional materials for trade and worship.
In July 1830, “intermittent fever” struck lower Columbia, and a year later, the Willamette Valley. The natives traced the disease, then first appearing in the Northwest, on the American ship Owyhee, commanded by John Dominis. Researchers now believe that “intermittent fever” is malaria. According to Robert T. Boyd, an anthropologist at Portland State University, the first three years of the epidemic “are probably the most important epidemiological event in the recorded history of what will eventually become Oregon.” In his book The Coming of Spiritual Plague Boyd reports that between 1830 and 1841, the Kalapuis lost 92% of their population. This catastrophic event destroyed the social fabric of Kalapuya society and altered the demographic balance in the valley.This balance was further changed over the next several years with the arrival of Anglo-American settlers, starting in 1840 with 13 people and steadily increasing each year until over 11,000 American settlers arrived, including Eugene Skinner, over the course of 20 years.
As demographic pressure from settlers increased, the remaining Kalapuis were forcibly resettled on Indian reservations. Although some Aboriginal people escaped being swept onto the reservation, most were relocated to the Grand Rond in 1856. Strict racial segregation was imperative, and people of mixed race, known as mestizos in French, had to choose between the reservation and the English-speaking society. Native Americans could not leave the reservation without travel documents, and white people could not enter the reservation.
Replica of Skinner’s original cabin
Eugene Franklin Skinner, after whom Eugene is named, arrived in Willamette Valley in 1846, along with 1,200 other settlers that same year. The Kalapuis advised to build on a hill to avoid flooding, he built the first Anglo hut on the southern or western slope of that slope, which the Kalapuis called Ya-po-ah.The “isolated hill” is now known as Skinner’s Bute. The hut was used as a trading post and was registered as an official post office on January 8, 1850.
At this time the settlement was known to the British as Skinner’s mud. It was moved in 1853 and named Eugene City in 1853. Officially registered as a city in 1862, it was named simply Eugene in 1889. Skinner operated a ferry service across the Willamette River, where the Ferry Street Bridge now stands.
The first major educational institution in the area was Columbia College, a few years earlier than the University of Oregon. It was the victim of two major fires in four years, and after the second fire, the college decided not to rebuild the building. A portion of the south of Eugene known as College Hill was formerly the site of Columbia College. There is no college there today.
The city raised initial funding to open a state university, which later became the University of Oregon, with the hopes of transforming the small town into a learning hub.In 1872, the Legislature passed legislation establishing the University of Oregon as a government agency. Eugene defeated the neighboring town of Albany in a competition for a state university. In 1873, a member of the J.H.D. Henderson donated hilltop land for the campus overlooking the city.
The university first opened in 1876 when the regents elected the first faculty and appointed John Wesley Johnson as president. The first students enrolled on October 16, 1876. The first building was built in 1877; it was named Didi Hall after the first president of the Council of Regents and community leader, Judge Matthew P.Didi.
Eugene grew rapidly throughout much of the twentieth century, except in the early 1980s, when a downturn in the timber industry caused high unemployment. By 1985, the industry had recovered and Eugene began to attract more high-tech industries, earning him the nickname “The Emerald Shire.”
The first Nike running shoe was used in 1972 during the US Olympic trials in Eugene.
History of civil unrest
Eugene has a long history of community activism, civil unrest and protest.Eugene’s cultural status as a place of alternative thought grew with the University of Oregon during the turbulent 1960s, and his reputation as a place for outsiders grew as a result of numerous anarchist protests in the late 1990s. In 2000, the Chicago Tribune described the city as “the cradle of the last generation of anarchist protestors.” Occupy Eugene was home to one of the country’s longest-running Occupy protests in 2011, with the last protester leaving the original Occupy camp on December 27, 2011.The city attracted national attention in the summer of 2020 following Black Lives Matter backlash. to the murder of George Floyd escalated into violence.
1960s: Counterculture and Campus Protests
Already a countercultural haven, Eugene had a hard time going through the changes of the 1960s, when underground groups bombed military targets. In September 1967, the Eugene Navy and Marine Reserve Training Center was damaged by a series of explosions and fires, and in November 1967 a bomb exploded in the Air Force ROTC building.On September 30, 1968, unidentified anti-capitalists detonated incendiary bombs at the Eugene Armory, causing damage over $ 100,000 (roughly $ 741,000 in 2020), destroying several trucks and jeeps, and causing significant damage to the city’s equipment complex. The riots continued throughout 1969 with frequent dynamite attacks on local businesses, newspapers, and the Emerald Hall on the University of Oregon campus.
Student activity at the university shaped both the campus and Eugene’s life during a time of social upheaval.The protests at Oregon State University were most intense against the Oregon ROTC, which was the epitome of military action in Vietnam and Cambodia. UO Students for a Democratic Society formed in 1965 but came to the fore on campus in 1969 when they first forced students to march and demand the removal of the ROTC campus. On January 6, 1970, campus demonstrators doused tables with animal blood while recruiting the ROTC to draw attention to the barbaric Vietnam War.Students held a public “People’s Trial” of campus president Robert D. Clark, convicting him of “complicity in the actions of American imperialism,” allowing the Oregon ROTC to be present on campus.
During January and February 1970, student anti-war activists disrupted ROTC activities and demonstrated against the military presence, culminating in unidentified criminals setting fire to the University of Oregon’s ROTC building at Esslinger Hall, causing massive damage and destroying university student conscription records. In March, 150-200 students led by the campus SDS division attempted to enter McArthur Court for a concert, which sparked riots that resulted in the arrest of 5 students. On April 15, 1970, the UO faculty, by a 199-185 vote, allowed the ROTC to remain. on campus, which immediately resulted in nearly 100 students looting the ROTC building, smashing furniture, windows, and throwing stones at property for the first time police used tear gas against demonstrators on campus.
The peak of the Vietnamese protest movement in the UO occurred over three days from April 22-24, 1970. At 11:00 on the 22nd, 50 to 100 UO students took over Johnson Hall to protest the continued presence of the ROTC on campus. above the lobby of the building. By 5:00 pm, the crowd had grown to 300 students when Clarke negotiated with the group to allow the protesters to stay in the lobby overnight if they kept the peace. The protests disrupted work and the Eugene police arrived on the 24th, arresting 61 protesters, but everything remained peaceful until the National Guard arrived and escalated the situation by firing tear gas on the crowd outside the building. News of the National Guard’s involvement led a large group of nearly 2,000 students to gather in the Emerald Hall to protest the incident.
On April 26, 1970, about 40 UO students successfully closed 13th Avenue across the university, erecting barricades at both ends, calling it “People’s Street.” This protest successfully forced Eugene’s City Council to hold a hearing on the street restriction for non-car traffic, which was held and soon went into effect. On October 2, 1970, unidentified criminals detonated a bomb at Prince Lucien Hall, causing $ 75,000 in damage (roughly $ 511,000 in 2020).
Community activism increased in the 1970s. Local activists stopped the proposed freeway and lobbied for the construction of Washington-Jefferson Park under the Washington-Jefferson Street Bridge. Community councils soon began to form as a result of these efforts. Notably influenced by the shift towards community-driven politics was the Eugene Local Measure 51, an electoral measure of 1978 that overturned the Gay Rights Ordinance approved by Eugene City Council in 1977, which outlawed discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
1990s: Anarchist activity
Eugene’s continued ability to protest became apparent at the beginning of the decade. In January 1991, 1,500 people took part in a student protest against the Gulf War in the city center, resulting in the arrest of 51 people, including 15 minors. Protesters carried a 10-year-old girl in a body bag to the front door of a federal building as a symbol of innocent deaths in the war. After the demonstration, a fire broke out at the recruiting station of Yevgeny’s Marine Corps.
Attempts by the city to clean up a forest grove in downtown Broadway and Charnelton were met with protests on June 1, 1997. Forty trees in downtown Eugene were cut down to make way for a garage and met with public opposition. 22 people were arrested, and the Register Guard posted on the front page a photograph of the photographer being sprayed with pepper spray by the police. Eugene’s forces were accused of overreaction and overuse of force for their egregious use of pepper spray, which was defended by Republican Mayor Jim Torrey. In Whitaker County, citizens were further radicalized by the incident and helped stimulate an activist community that has already begun to grow due to a lack of affordable housing and growing income inequality in the area.
On June 18, 1999, a few months before the 1999 WTO protests in Seattle, a riot broke out in Eugene. After a two-day conference at the University of Oregon on the disintegration of the country’s economic system, a rally against global capitalism swept the streets of the city center.After the rally, protesters took to the streets, stopped traffic, burned flags, smashed windows and electronic equipment. After the police responded with tear gas and pepper spray, the protesters fought the police for several hours. More than 100 people were injured by the tear gas used by the Eugene police, 15 were arrested. Later that year, Eugene’s activists also played a key role along with other anarchists in organizing black bloc tactics during the 1999 World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference on the 1999 protest activity. Evgeny’s police subsequently stated that local anarchists were responsible for other attacks on local police officers. Local activists, in turn, argued that in response, the police in vain pursued people in black clothes.
Mayor Jim Torrey declared Eugene the “Anarchist Capital of the World” in response to the riots that some supported. Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper, in his resignation speech following the 1999 WTO protests, blamed most of the riots on “Eugene’s anarchists.”Influential thinkers on the Eugene scene at the time included John Zerzan, an author known for his contributions to leftist theory and who was the editor of Green Anarchy, an anarchist magazine based in the city. Anarchists and leftists continued to protest against Torrey throughout his tenure, including meeting every year on June 1 (the anniversary of the Broadway Square clashes) to protest police brutality under his control.
One hotbed of protest activity since the 1990s has been the Whitaker area, located in the northwest of downtown Eugene. Whitaker is primarily a working-class neighborhood that has become a vibrant cultural hub, a hub of community and activity, and a home for alternative artists. In the 1990s, there was an increase in activity after many young people moved there, attracted by Eugene’s political climate. Animal rights groups are well represented in Whitaker and there are several vegan restaurants there. According to David Samuels, the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front were underground in the area.The area is home to a number of residential buildings, which are often organized by anarchist or environmentalist groups. Local activists have also made independent films and opened art galleries, community gardens and independent media. Copwatch, Food Not Bombs and Critical Mass also operate in the neighborhood.
21st Century Riots
The more prominent anarchist scene seemed to subside after several years of upsurge, but protest activity in Eugene was still ongoing. Groups such as the Neighborhood Anarchist Collective continued to maintain an active grassroots network, and the Eugene Share Fair was used as a resource for organizations offering market support. On June 16, 2000, environmental activists set fire to trucks at the Franklin Boulevard auto show. On the anniversary of the 1999 riots, police attacked the demonstrators again, arresting 37 and hitting a KLCC reporter in the head with a truncheon. Later, as anarchism faded into the background, Eugene’s reputation as a strong leftist increased as overall political support in the city dwindled.
Main article: Occupy Eugene
The Occupy Eugene protests grew out of the Occupy Wall Street movement, which began in New York on September 17, 2011.Protesters in Eugene were concerned about equity issues in wealth distribution, banking regulation, housing, and corporate greed. The first protest march took place on October 15, 2011, and the main camp, located in Washington Jefferson Park, lasted until December 2011. The initial Occupy Eugene demonstrations drew more than 2,000 participants and began in Wayne Morse Free Speech Square.
George Floyd Protests 2020
Eugene’s protests against George Floyd / Black Lives Matter grew out of civil unrest that began in Minneapolis and spread throughout the country in May 2020 following the assassination of Floyd, an unarmed black man, by a Minneapolis police officer.
In Eugene, on 29 May, demonstrators drew attention to nearby shops, disrupted traffic, and knocked trash and newsagents onto a downtown street. The rebels moved towards I-105 and began setting fire to a nearby road sign. Bonfires were set on that night and windows were shattered. At about 11 pm, protesters lit a bonfire in the street, consisting of traffic cones, newspapers, signs of local businesses and other items. There were no arrests that night.
Protests – including marches, rallies, and exercises – continued daily for several weeks, reigniting in response to the federal invasion of Portland.
On June 13, protesters overthrew pioneer and pioneer mother during a protest by Matthew Didi (clearly the namesake of the University of Oregon building).
More than 2,000 demonstrators took part in the June 19 Black Lives Matter protest at Alton Baker Park, which was designed to generate profits for black-owned businesses.
On October 14, 1996, to mark the anniversary of Columbus Day, Earth Liberation Front activists coordinated several attacks on local fast food chains and oil companies. Two locks at Willamette Chevron gas stations were glued and painted with the slogans “504 Years of Genocide” and “Earth Liberation Front”. Similarly, Eugene’s two public relations offices, Weyerhauser and Hyundai, were attacked. Later that month, ELF protesters destroyed a US forestry station south of Eugene, causing $ 5.3 million in damage. These were some of the earliest examples of environmental protection in the United States.
In September 2000, members of the Eugene-based ELF cell burned down the Western University Public Security Site of the Eugene Police Department.Later, in March 2001, activists attacked the same Franklin car dealership for the second time in 6 months, damaging more than 30 SUVs. Between 1997 and 2001, more than 125 different fire attacks were organized in the city.
In January 2006, the FBI conducted Operation Backfire, which brought federal charges against eleven people, all members of the ELF. Operation Backfire was the largest investigation into the activities of radical underground environmental groups in US history. Ongoing trials of accused environmental terrorists have kept Eugene in the spotlight for several years.

Average winter temperatures (and high summer temperatures) are the same for the two cities. This discrepancy could be further caused by Portland’s urban heat island, where the combination of black pavement and urban energy use raises nighttime temperatures. [ citation needed ]

The process, which is still used by the university in a modified form, was developed by Christopher Alexander, whose work also directly inspired the creation of the Wiki. Some research for the book The Pattern Language, which inspired the Design Patterns movement and Extreme Programming, was done by Alexander in Eugene. It is no coincidence that these engineering movements originated here.Decades after its publication, The Pattern Language is still one of the best-selling books on urban design.

Chir Geographical Expedition | Shakhty city
At four in the morning I was awakened by a continuous headache, which can only be caused by the branded gin from the Karginsky stall.He fed the dying fire, shook off the leaves that crawled into bed during the night. It is not long before sunrise, but there is still time for morning sleep.
Now the movement should go more fun. The banks of the Chir have become noticeably steeper, the current is faster, which means that the reed will hardly create many obstacles. Only blockages of trees can interfere. Rafting on the river is possible when its width is 2B + D, where B is the maximum height of trees growing along the banks, and D is the length of the boat. But we have clearly left the upper reaches of the river, besides, the full water has not yet completely subsided.Yesterday, while sailing one of the bridges, I had to lie down at the very bottom of the kayak, and anyway, I hooked my head on the bridge beam. Maybe that’s why it’s so painful?
Behind the pasture meadow, the roosters of yesterday’s guest woke up. The man came almost to the onset of darkness, alarmed by the appearance of strangers near the house. Even here, on the outskirts of a settlement large by local standards, the wild life unfamiliar to the inhabitants of the capital, with its dashing people, determines the rules of behavior. Not finding any danger in us, the peasant grew kinder, exchanged a couple of standard phrases and grabbed the ax down with his hatchet – a sure sign of complacency.
Daniel with a bear noise turned over in the tent on the other side. A log in the fire clicked, throwing a sheaf of sparks into the darkness. The cold mug with the remnants of the gin flashed with brown flashes. I straightened my backpack at the head of the bed, drank the leftovers from the mug and lay down closer to the fire. In the morning, another test is to be made here.

Dawn came quickly.Having finished my morning procedures, I packed the equipment with a new batch of samples.
– Well, let’s have some tea and go out? We will encircle the blockage behind the bridge and there, I hope, we will be able to swim.
– Yes, I’ll just fold my tent.
The headache is gone. The pasta that had been dinner hours earlier had stuck to the bottom of the pot. Not wanting to finally slide into the water along the steep bank, I scooped up water, rolled a washcloth from loam with celandine and sat on the cold steel of a bridge thrown across the river:
At the bottom, the Chir Unionids were filtering the water.For a long time, only five species of these mollusks were found in the Rostov region: three pearl barley and two toothless. In January 2017, live representatives of Corbicula fluminea were unexpectedly found on the Don at the mouth of a warm canal of the Novocherkassk power plant. This species is included in the list of the 100 most dangerous invasive species in Europe and, presumably, in the coming years it will reach Chira.
It was completely unexpected to find bivalves here. Unionids lead a sedentary lifestyle, their travels end in adolescence, when young mollusks – glochidia parasitize on fish.As soon as the glochidia grows up, it falls off, buries itself in the silt and begins its difficult job of cleaning the river. If they already settled here – in an area with a relatively fast current, then they must surely dwell in the dams of the upper reaches, however, they could not be found there at any of the sites. The only exception is shell fragments on the beach in Karginskaya, but crows, children, or other natural enemies of the Unionids could easily bring them there.
It turned out to be absolutely impossible to reach the shells.Lying down on the iron edge, I pulled my hand into the water with all my might. The genus Unionid is determined by the teeth and the thickness of the shell. But no matter how much I stretched, about a quarter of a meter remained to the cherished teeth. Suddenly, the edge of the bridge tilted sharply, the pot and pot overturned, I barely managed to avoid the destruction of the only local crossing. He swore, took the dishes and returned to the fire in complete disappointment.
– What were you doing there?
– Yes, the pasta stuck, you can wash it off.
The last time I looked at them was when I was dragging the kayak.Animals stuck calmly from the bottom, demonstrating their inaccessibility for human hands and photographic equipment:
The sun had risen high enough and had already managed to heat everything around. Outside the floodplain, the heat became completely unbearable. The only thing worse than the scorching sun is the need to drag kayaks. Sweat is constantly dripping from the face, which there is nothing to shake off, since both hands are busy. My back was wet from my backpack. Instead of relief, the gentle breeze carries only the hot smell of earth and young grass.Here, outside the forest, on a pasture meadow on a high bank, this aroma is especially strong.
The first blockage on the river was followed by the second, the second by the third. After passing the power line, Daniel was rightly indignant.
– This is some bullshit. Like idiots, we walk along the river and drag boats. Here’s a normal descent, let’s go from here. If there is another blockage further, we will enclose it. It will be easier anyway. Otherwise, we will reach the mouth like this.
It will hardly be easier any longer, but it was truly unbearable to carry the load in the same way.Sinking up to our knees in the shore mixed by cows, we went down to the Chir bend. The cattle reservoir is not the best place for the slipway, but there is no other choice – our shore rises above the water with a sharp ledge, is overgrown and is completely inconvenient for a safe descent. At the risk of undergoing an unplanned course of hirudotherapy, we went into the mud, lowered the boats and, having distributed our things, stood on the oars.
It is really easier in a kayak, especially if you put your oars aside and lie in it without any movement.Around the bend, the river became a narrow stream with asymmetrical banks. The shallow water on the left is overgrown with dense reeds, the right bank has become less steep, but still remains steep, dipping overgrown poplars. The first blockage had to be removed after fifty meters. The second was not so scary: by carefully squeezing between the branches, it was possible to overcome it without getting out of the boat. But almost immediately after him, a branchy tree blocked the way. Its top was hidden behind the reeds of the left bank, and the crooked roots made it impossible to carry the boats over the base of the fallen trunk.Inconvenient shore, danger of piercing the boat, difficulty in unloading – because of these little things, the speed of our movement fell below the walking speed.
– Let’s take a break. We left earlier than usual today.
– Yes, it’s not yet eleven, but we are already exhausted. Now, in general, the heat will begin.
– Let’s go, over there, under the tree, in the shade
The boats were at a new start. The narrow river was visible only for a few tens of meters, cutting off the gaze with another heap of branches.
We climbed a few meters above the water’s edge, lounging between a bushy elm tree and a white poplar.Once upon a time another tree grew here, but it rotted long ago, leaving behind only a stump that was swollen with earth, occupied by black ants ( Lasius niger ). If the stories of the locals about the past high flow of the Chir are true, in previous years the water could well rise to the level of these trees. But locals cannot be trusted in matters of long-term dynamics. The first recorded measurements on rivers by the Don water system date back to 1876 (see, for example, the reference book “Long-term data on the regime and resources of surface water on land, i.1, issue 3, L .: Gidrometeoizdat, 1986). From that moment on, the number of observation points grew continuously until the very collapse of the empire. While some were preparing, with varying degrees of success, an assassination attempt on the tsars, smashing the Jews, fighting in the Middle East, reducing their gymnasium education and begging to stop “all talk about freedom of the press, the arbitrariness of gatherings and a representative assembly,” others laid new posts. some of which are still valid.
First sightings were interrupted by revolution and civil war.While Denikin and Budyonny were measuring sabers, all the materials collected at the first posts disappeared (except for the post in Kalach-na-Donu). However, already in the twenties, research was resumed with much greater intensity. From 1925 to 1935, another 57 gauging stations were opened, including a post on the Chir in the village of Oblivskaya. The second gap in observations was provided by the Wehrmacht. The gap was more than two years, after which some of the posts were declared invalid.
Hydrological measurements on the Don were most developed in the fifties.At this time, new measuring points were opened on the Chira: in 1949, Sviridovsky, in 1951 by the side, in 1954 by Proninsky (on the tributary of the Chira – the Tsutskan River), in 1955 by Chernyshevsky (in 1957, the post together with the village was renamed Soviet) and post in the farm Bolshenapolovsky, data on which, however, are not published in the hydrological yearbook. This surge in activity is of a short-term nature – after a few years, new gauging stations will be liquidated: in Sviridov in 1955, in Sovetskaya in 1964, a year later (in 1965.) in the Pronin farm. The gauging station in the village of Bokovskaya has been operating for the longest time, however, after 1970, observations have stopped there. From 1971 to the present, all information about the river has been collected only at the Oblivsky gauging station.
The mismanagement of the nineties in terms of collecting hydrological information is more harmful than the German occupation. According to the verbal assurances of hydrologists, the measurements are not stopped, but the data themselves are not transferred to the archives. There is no information for 1991 and 1992.Moreover, in the confusion of the hydrological institute, part of the materials published in the Soviet years (measurements from 1975, 1984 and 1989) are lost. Such omissions deprive us of the possibility of conducting an R / S analysis of annual data, which is extremely depressing for me.
The last gap dates back to 2006-2007 and no one can explain it at all. However, since 2008, the data has become available electronically on the website of the Federal Agency for Water Resources.
Availability of information on discharges at gauging stations of the Chir River.Green – data are present, orange – no data, or measurements were not carried out
Even more sad, discontinuities in observations appear after getting acquainted with the distribution of Chir water discharge. The main feeding of the Chir, as well as of the Don itself with its tributaries, comes from the waters formed by the melting of winter snow reserves (“Perennial …, 1986”) and, to a much lesser extent, from groundwater and rainwater. Warm winters with frequent thaws lead to the fact that the maximum discharge can be observed from the beginning of the year to mid-spring:
Annual changes in the discharge on the Chir River (st.Oblivskaya) from 1936 to 2016 (with gaps), m3 / s
During the observation period (in the available data), the minimum flow rate was 0.56 m3 / s, the maximum – 349 m3 / s (in 623 times more). The arithmetic mean value of the flow rate is 11.028 cubic meters / sec. But from the graphs of the distribution of expenses by months it is clear that the data is characterized by an abnormal distribution and therefore the use of parametric criteria in the analysis is incorrect. Anderson-Darling tests for sample years confirm this – the observation results with a high probability do not agree with the normal distribution:

There is a clear trend towards data normalization after the spring flood. Taking P-value as 0.01, we can refer to the normally distributed data as the values of expenditures in August, October and November. It is curious that a normal distribution is much more likely for March flow rates than for April and February:
Probability of normal distribution of flow rates by months
Such distributions of values are confusing when trying to solve the problem of filling in the gaps.It is a sin to use not only the past, edge, average, median values, but also more complex procedures such as Monte Carlo methods. The data have a complex structure (pseudo-stationary), and their total number is insignificant. This will inevitably lead to a strong influence of the error of the padded values on the analysis result. Generalized ways of filling in missing values (such as the Gibbs method) require additional data sets that themselves need to be verified. This deprives us of the possibility of analyzing the time series of "raw" data with all the pleasures that come from this (such as building arma-arima models).
To avoid the need to recover missing data and the associated risks, years containing gaps in monthly observations were excluded from the sample. After that, the data are divided into fourteen groups of similar size (4-5 years, one group six and one seven years):

There are no missing years in each of these groups, and there are no missing months in years.Each month is represented by the arithmetic mean of expenses. It is extremely important to understand: the distribution of daily expenses sometimes differs from normal, but many monthly observation periods contain days with missing values, so the arithmetic mean becomes the only possible criterion for the difference in expenses of different months.
Measuring flow rates is a laborious procedure, so most of the information published in the Hydrological Yearbooks is calculated on the basis of the Glushkov curve (dependence of flow rate on water level) with Stout's correction (deviation from the curve that has a regularity).Thus, the initial information on the river discharge is understood as the monthly arithmetic mean values of the discharge calculated from the data of the water levels.
Dividing the sample into groups with gaps helps in part to get rid of the interdependence of data from each other, but it is much more important to assess the appropriateness of using groups of such size for analysis. Having no grounds to assert the independence of the observation results, we cannot even speak of a reliable change in water discharge.All the more so for the data, which are clearly inherent in periodicity:
Dynamics of monthly flow rates on the Chir River (station Oblivskaya), cubic meters. m per sec. 70% of all observations are enclosed between the blue lines, 99% of all observations are between the red lines. Missing data is indicated by a break in the graph.
Due to the discontinuity of observations, autocorrelation analysis is not entirely correct, however, there is no better alternative in our case. The ACF and PACF graphs for monthly discharges clearly show the annual annual frequency of discharges with peaks during floods:
Graphs of the total (left) and partial (right) autocorrelation functions of monthly discharges on the Chir River (st.Oblivskaya). The lag value is 1 month. The 95% confidence interval is shown in blue italics
For annual values, the frequency is much less noticeable. For reasonable reasons, we cannot see the secular fluctuations, but we can assume (without strong evidence!) The presence of a secular cycle. For the reasons indicated above (distribution abnormality), it makes no sense to consider the average annual values instead of the median ones. The autocorrelation plots additionally confirm this:
Plots of the total (left) and partial (right) autocorrelation functions of median (main plots) and average (inset plots) annual flow rates on the Chir River (st.Oblivskaya) 95% confidence intervals are in blue italics. The lag value is 1 year.
The formal Durbin-Watson test reveals moderate autocorrelation of median flow rates (0.3449 at p-value = 0.002) and no autocorrelation of mean values ( p-value = 0.872). The Brousch - Godfrey test gives similar results: for median values, autocorrelation of the first ( p-value = 0.0037) and second orders ( p-value = 0.008556), higher order correlations are unreliable. For mean values, correlations of different orders are not found ( p-value = 0.8-0.9).
Autocorrelation in groups is not detected by any of the tests ( p-value = 0.06-0.83 depending on the use of mean or median values, the type of test and the order of autocorrelation), with the exception of third-order autocorrelation according to the Breusch-Godfrey test ( p-value = 0.004914). But given the size of the samples, this value is of little value.Taking this into account, we can admit the independence of the cost values - the third important assumption after the recognition that the average monthly expenses fully correspond to reality, and the arbitrary division of data into groups does not fundamentally affect the research result. The latter assumption can be made relying on the central limit theorem and the normality of the distribution of median values 0.55 with p-value = 0.1494 according to the Andreson-Darling test. Of course, do not forget about the "zero assumption" that the data was collected according to a single method, was not distorted during storage and was not influenced by monkeys with crooked arms.Considering the reverent attitude of the authors to the compilation of "Hydrological Yearbooks", there is no reason to consider the extreme values of the recorded values as emissions.
For the rivers of the Don water system, in addition to seasonal fluctuations, alternation of pronounced periods with different water availability is characteristic. In the work (Perennial ..., 1986), the periods of water content (high-water, low-water and medium water-cut) of the Don and Khopra are given in the cities of Liski (until 1991 it was called Georgieu-Dezh), Kalach-on-Don and the village of Povorotino, from which it can be seen that periods of different water content can last for tens of years.Whether such periods are typical for smaller rivers (in particular the Chira) remains unclear.

It is interesting that the authors (Mnogoletnie ..., 2006) point to the asynchrony of the curves of the annual runoff for different rivers, i.e. the ratio of their water content is not constant. Unfortunately, the data from other gauging stations are extremely scarce and I cannot fully verify the tightness of the relationship between the discharges in different sections of the river. The existing measurements are mostly consistent with each other, but there are also obvious inconsistencies, for example, a strong decline in expenditures in 1959 in the village of Sovetskaya and on the Tsutskan River, which is hardly noticed at the Obliv post.

Pearson's correlation (data distributed normally) turned out to be lower than expected (0.4261629) and, moreover, unreliable ( p-value = 0.07782). The most likely reason for this is the lack of observations, but this does not allow extrapolating the discharge of the lower section to the rest of the river.
During most of the second half of the twentieth century, expenditures in the village of Oblivskaya tended to increase until the 1990s, with pre-war expenditures being extremely low (1.35-2.04 cubic meters per second). After the 1990s, the situation changes fundamentally: with the exception of three years (2003-2005, including 2003 with the maximum flow rate in the entire history of observations: 8.71 cubic meters per second), in the last quarter of a century there has been a decrease in median costs to almost the pre-war level ( up to 1.96 cubic metersm / sec in 2015):
Dynamics of annual median flow rates on the Chir river (Oblivskaya station), cubic meters m per sec. Half of all observations are enclosed between the blue lines, and 70% of all observations are between the red lines. The inset graph shows the trends in flow rates by observation periods without gaps.
A decisive factor in this change is the cost savings in the spring months. The graph of monthly expenditures shows a clear decrease in the values of peak (falling beyond the 99% quantile) floods. Unfortunately, there is no data on the current flood (2018).) of the year, which was clearly significant against the background of recent years, however, given the subsequent drought, I would venture to assume that by now the general trend towards a decrease in expenditures has not changed.
Expenses by months, median annual expenses (cubic meters per second) and total annual flow (cubic kilometers per year). The interquartile range (filled areas) and median (black bar in the filled area) are indicated. The length of the "mustache" corresponds to one and a half intraquartile ranges. Individual points are extreme values.
Since 2008, reduced costs are typical for all months except February, but the decline is especially strong from September to December. Interestingly, against the background of growing costs until 2005, the annual runoff is outwardly stationary, and since 1985 it has been continuously decreasing (but this decrease is not statistically significant!). This can only be explained by the imperfection of the median as a measure of typicality: a sharply asymmetric distribution retains the median even with a decrease in kurtosis. The physical meaning of this is that the number of days with flow rates above and below the median value remains unchanged, but the maximum values (peaks) decrease.It is curious that asymmetry is linearly and very closely related to kurtosis (Spearman's correlation coefficient 0.9959 p-value <2.2e-16) - the least probable water discharge, the values of which are equal to the arithmetic mean of the discharge.

Checking for homoscedasticity indicates homoscedasticity in the observation groups according to the Bartlett test ( p-value = 0.3361) and according to the Levene test ( p-value = 0.9068) ... Together with the normal distribution of expenses and the independence of their values (taking into account the result of autocorrelation analysis), this gives the right to quantify the reliability of differences in expenses by periods.One-way ANOVA indicates that such differences cannot be the result of random samples from the general population. The probability of the opposite is 0.0001951 (with the value of Fisher's criterion f-value = 3.875).
Since the distribution of expenditures in 1965-1969 is different from normal, and the probability of several other time groups is close to 0.01, it is obviously necessary to confirm the reliability of the differences by a nonparametric method. Analysis of variance according to Kruskal-Wallis indicates a higher probability of randomness of differences between groups ( p-palue = 0.001538), however, as in the case of the analysis, option (aov), the value of this probability convincingly indicates the reliability of the differences between the data.
Tukey's test was used as a posterior test. It is not enough to know that there is a significant difference between the groups - it is important to understand which groups it applies to. With the significance criterion of p-palue = 0.01 for the entire observation period, the differences are significant only in two periods: the pairs 2000-2005 - 1937-1941 and 2000-2005 - 1950-1954.In seven more pairs, the probability of randomness of differences lies between the values 0.01p-paluep-value = 0.0514650), one can also note the difference in the pair 1985-1988 - 1945-1949.
