Lunar Logic, maker of websites and electronic supplements to textbooks, lost 120 workers over the past year to outsourcing. The company began in 1997 and counts Thomson, a college textbook publisher based in Toronto, Ontario, as its one major client. Lately, Lunar Logic owner Mark Lipson says there is pressure for companies to move work offshore. “There’s less that the customers want us to do,” he says. However, Lipson added that while most of the offshore work has been data processing, quality assurance and technical support jobs, companies “still need experts in their time zone.” The effects of the layoffs can be felt in some of the downtown businesses, especially at cafes and coffee shops. The company employs about 60 people in Eugene and is looking to diversify by taking on smaller projects.


At every university there are outstanding faculty members who achieve acclaim in their field, win grants for their research and gain national attention. At the University of Oregon, more than $10 million in gifts will help the university recruit and retain more of these stellar professors over the next 10 years. The gifts include an endowed chair in the journalism school, a distinguished scholar award and two faculty fellowships in the business college, and an anonymous donation to create a fund for faculty excellence.
