$88M grant allows Oregon State to contract construction of second research vessel (KVAL)

Oregon State University has contracted construction of a second research vessel to bolster the nation’s aging academic fleet. (see also Marine Log, Register Guard, Portland Business Journal)

Quake expert: Portland needs to shake up seismic retrofits (Portland Tribune)

Three years ago, Chris Goldfinger featured prominently in a Pulitzer Prize-winning New Yorker article that drove a new public awareness of the surprising odds that a subduction earthquake off the coast of Oregon could devastate the Pacific Northwest. Despite a newfound scientific celebrity that extends nationwide, however, the marine geologist’s recent activities in Portland have taught a very old lesson — it’s hard to fight City Hall.

The battle behind the periodic table’s latest additions (Nature)

Most researchers voted to delay the announcement, says Walter Loveland, a nuclear chemist at Oregon State University in Corvallis. And that triggered a remarkable reaction from some of the Russian scientists who had led efforts that resulted in three of the elements. “They just stomped their feet and walked out,” says Loveland. “I’ve never seen that in a scientific meeting.”

 Study shows significant math, reading gains for English learners (Education Dive)

“Despite the downsides of No Child Left Behind, the substantial recent progress of multilingual students demonstrated in our research suggests that the bundle of various policies and practices at the federal, state, district and school levels may have together been more beneficial than harmful,” New York University Associate Professor Michael J. Kieffer, who co-authored the study with Karen D. Thompson, an assistant professor at Oregon State University, said in a press release. (see also Daily Mail)

OSU scientists reject trophy hunting as conservation (Jefferson Public Radio)

But new research involving Oregon State University and other institutions points to the contradiction of conservation alongside the practice of killing animals for sport.

‘Fighting for the underdog’ (Gazette-Times)

On Saturday, Hussaini will graduate from Oregon State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a plan to continue his education in law school. It’s a validation of the dream that lured Hussaini’s parents to the United States in the first place — but one that is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve in today’s anti-immigrant climate.

What’s the buzz? Next week is all about bees (KTVZ)

“The Pacific Northwest has more species of wild bees than all the combined states east of the Mississippi, at least 500 and we expect there are many more,” said Melathopoulos, bee specialist for Oregon State University Extension Service and member of the Oregon Bee Project steering committee. “Not only are they essential to our food systems and environment, they’re entertaining as all heck.”

Researchers are investigating the flavor profiles of vodkas made with dairy (The Drinks Business)

Researchers at Oregon State University are looking at the flavour profile of vodkas made with whey, a by-product of cheesemaking. “Even though some energy is required to transform whey into vodka, there is still a huge environmental gain by not disposing of it through waste streams,” said Lisbeth Goddik, a Professor of Food Science and Technology at OSU. “There is a significant reduction of greenhouse gases, and the creameries have the potential to also boost their revenue.”

A young Dutch inventor wants to clean plastic from the ocean. Can he do it? (NBC News)

The Ocean Cleanup seemed big, brazen and bound to struggle when it was introduced in 2016 to Rick Spinrad, an oceanographer who was chief scientist at the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration. “But the more I dove in and got more and more detail, the more I changed my mind,” said Spinrad, now a professor at Oregon State University. “They are doing a very thoughtful, well-designed process to get to where they want to go. That is why I am convinced they are going to have some success.” Just how much success, he said, remains to be seen.

OSU hosts annual ‘Great Move Out Donation Drive’ (KEZI)

Students from Oregon State University are heading home for summer this week, but not before they take part in the annual “Great Move Out Donation Drive.”

New sunscreen developed at OSU to prevent sun-induced aging (KVAL)

Researchers at Oregon State University discovered what could be the first natural compound that acts as a sunscreen and prevents sun-induced aging.
