Oregon State University will be one of seven regional “Climate Hubs” across the country, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is expected to announce this morning.

Too many Oregon children unready for kindergarten, officials lament (Oregonian)

Some studies indicate that how well children perform those skills at age 5 or 6 is a better predictor than early reading or math skills of which students will be strong readers by grade three — and even which students will graduate from college. And research shows those skills can be taught, according to Megan McClelland, an associate professor at OSU’s Hallie E. Ford Center for Healthy Children & Families. (see also Oregonian)

Committee to re-evaluate its parking district plan (Gazette-Times)

About 80 people packed the Madison Avenue Meeting Room on Tuesday; 45 of them testified, with virtually all of them criticizing the committee’s plan to establish a ring of new parking districts around the Oregon State University campus.

Oregon chub recovery efforts have worked, officials say (Register-Guard)

Tom and Ellen Murphy owned 41 acres of property featuring by two creeks south of Corvallis where Oregon State University researchers stumbled upon the Oregon chub.

Dog response linked to predatory traits (KEZI)

If you’re thinking about getting a dog, trainers say it is a good idea to do a fair bit of research about what kind of breed you really want. New research from Oregon State University shows that certain dogs are better at listening – but that does not necessarily mean that they are better pets.

In defense of reading — again (Huffington Post)

A piece by OSU’s Evan Gottlieb.

Essayist adds fresh voice to OSU (Gazette-Times)

You can make the case that digression is at the heart of many great essays. So it’s fitting that an hour-long discussion with essayist Elena Passarello, still settling into Corvallis and her new job as an assistant professor at Oregon State University, covers a lot of ground.

OSU breakthrough in cancer research (KDVR)

Researchers are optimistic for future cancer therapies after a breakthrough in cancer research at Oregon State University. (see also ALN Magazine)

Professor Daniel Lopez-Cevallos, one of the authors of the study, first noticed the trend anecdotally while teaching a public health class.

Corvallis intersection to get a facelift (KEZI)

A busy Corvallis intersection near the Oregon State University campus is about to get a face-lift. OSU is building a new residence hall right off Southwest 15th Street, which could create more traffic. The university and the city are teaming up to re-align the street near the railroad tracks. That means a signal will go up on the corner of Washington Way.

Eliminating grazing won’t reduce impact of climate change on rangeland, scientists say (AgriMarketing)

“Grazing is one of the few tools available to reduce the herbaceous vegetation that becomes fine fuel on rangelands,” said co-author Dave Bohnert, the director of Oregon State University’s Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center in Burns.

PNW fruit growers keeping tabs on stink bug (Growing Produce)

“I think we are fortunate to be in the position of being able to anticipate the threat from this pest, whereas they were largely taken by surprise in the Mid-Atlantic states when this pest suddenly made the jump from urban nuisance to severe crop pest,” says Nik Wiman, a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University. “We also are benefiting from the knowledge base being generated by researchers from the Mid-Atlantic.”
