As the Apple Cup approaches, the UW and Washington State University (WSU) rivalry strengthens. This rivalry isn’t just limited to sports. Most recently, it has extended to environmental issues. UW and WSU are currently competing in the One Thing Challenge, a competition to get students to pledge to change one thing in their daily routines to help the environment.
The One Thing Challenge began in 2008 when Clive Pursehouse, diversity initiatives administrator for UW Housing & Food Services (HFS), created the challenge and circulated it through the residence halls.
A new tool is available that’s meant to save energy and improve your computer system’s security. University of Washington Seattle faculty, staff and IT managers can install IBM’s Tivoli Endpoint Manager on UW-owned computers. This new power and patch management software manages power usage and patches some of the most common software packages, including, Skype, iTunes and Java.
