As the planet lurches past 400 parts per million concentrations of CO2, the moment has come for all of us to do hard, important, powerful things to combat climate change.

The Vanport flood and racism in Portland: sixty five years later

Sixty five years ago, the Columbia River flooded into the largest public housing project in the U-S at the time, leaving 18,500 people homeless, a large number of whom were black.  The event changed race relations in Portland forever.

On Friday May 24th, from 8 am to noon, KBOO presented a special program on the Vanport flood and racism in Portland, sixty five years later.

We featured historians and archived audio, as well as a discussion led by PSU professor and activist Walidah Imarisha asking ‘Why are there so few black people in Oregon’.

Ten years before gaining official recognition as a program, female students and professors met to plan and implement the inclusion of Women's Studies courses at Portland State University. They held an event in the school’s ballroom and began offering ad hoc classes., later hiring a coordinator. Eventually Women’s Studies became an official program and then a department offering a major.

Hacking Democracy

Wed, 10/29/2008

One of the largest concerns of the Oregon Voter’s Rights Coalition is the lack of independent testing and review of the state’s voting systems. When trying to raise their concerns with John Lindback, Oregon’s Director of Elections, he assured the group that he is confident in the voting systems used. 

But last Fall, Ohio did something different. Their Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner commissioned Project EVEREST: a comprehensive security review of the electronic voting technology used in her state. 

The project contracted several academic teams to examine the election procedures, equipment, and source code used in that state. The aim was to identify any problems that could make elections vulnerable to tampering. 

The ten-week project examined in detail the touch-screen, optical scan, and election management technology from e-voting vendors ES&S, Hart InterCivic, and Premier Election Systems (formerly Diebold). Penn led the analysis of the ES&S system source code, which is also used by voters in 42 other U.S. states besides Ohio.

Matt Blaze and Sandy Clark outlined the team's findings at the Hackers on Planet Earth conference earlier this year, where they discovered exploitable security vulnerabilities in almost every hardware and software component of the ES&S systems. Some of these flaws could allow a single malicious voter or poll worker to alter countywide election results, possibly without detection.
