Washington State University is a public research university based in Pullman, Washington, in the Palouse region of the northwest United States.Founded 125 years ago in 1890, WSU is the state's only land-grant university. The university is well known for its programs in chemical engineering, veterinary medicine, agriculture, animal science, food science, plant science, architecture, neuroscience and communications. It is one of 96 public and private universities in America with "very high research activity," as determined by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. With an undergraduate enrollment of 25,092 and a total student enrollment of 27,642, it is the second largest institution of higher education in Washington state.The university also operates campuses across Washington known as WSU Spokane, WSU Tri-Cities, and WSU Vancouver, all founded in 1989. In 2012, WSU launched an Internet-based Global Campus, which includes its online degree program, WSU Online. These campuses award primarily bachelor's and master's degrees. Freshmen and sophomores were first admitted to the Vancouver campus in 2006 and to the Tri-Cities campus in 2007. Total enrollment for the four campuses and WSU Online exceeds 25,900 students. In 2009, this included a record 1,447 international students, the highest since 1994 when there were 1,442.WSU's athletic teams are called the Cougars and the school colors are crimson and gray. The six men's and nine women's varsity teams compete in NCAA Division I in the Pacific-12 Conference. Wikipedia.

Technologies are generally described for switchable patterned metal shield inductance structures. In some examples, an inductance structure on a substrate may include an inductor and a metal shield, where the metal shield separates and shields the inductor from the substrate. The configuration of the metal shield and the inductor may facilitate reduction in the overall inductance of the inductance structure. In particular, the metal shield may be configured to develop one or more eddy currents in response to an inductor-generated magnetic field. The eddy currents may then result in a magnetic field opposing the inductor-generated magnetic field, which may result in a reduction in the overall magnetic field and the overall inductance of the inductance structure. The metal shield may be switchable between multiple modes, where each mode may be effective to reduce the overall inductance by a different amount.

Unlabeled and labeled sensor data is received from one or more source views. Unlabeled, and optionally labeled, sensor data is received from a target view. The received sensor data is used to train activity recognition classifiers for each of the source views and the target view. The sources and the target each include one or more sensors, which may vary in modality from one source or target to another source or target.

Robotic systems and specialized end-effectors provide for automated harvesting of produce such as fresh market apples. An underactuated design using tendons and flexure joints with passive compliance increases robustness to position error, overcoming a significant limitation of previous fruit harvesting end-effectors. Some devices use open-loop control, provide a shape-adaptive grasp, and produce contact forces similar to those used during optimal hand picking patterns. Other benefits include relatively low weight, low cost, and simplicity.

A novel method of preventing or reducing ototoxicity in vertebrates undergoing treatment with therapeutically effective amounts of platinum-based chemotherapeutic agents such as cisplatin or aminoglycoside antibiotics is disclosed herein. The method(s) comprise administering an effective amount of an otoprotective agent comprising Dihexa prior to, concomitantly with, or subsequently to administration of the platinum-based chemotherapeutic agent or aminoglycoside antibiotic.
