One millennial works hard to overcome his generation’s stereotypes (OPB)

I don’t normally use a wheelchair, but that’s the point of this demonstration on the campus of Oregon State University in Corvallis. It’s to put me in the seat of disabled OSU students who have to navigate the sprawling campus. Williamson leads tours every Friday. He points me in the direction of the library. It’s up a bit of an incline.

Scientists vexed in probe of North American starfish deaths (Yahoo News)

“These animals are really important ecologically. If they do go extinct, or at least ecologically extinct for some period of time, there undoubtedly would be some really huge impacts on the ecosystems that they live in,” said Bruce Menge, a marine community ecologist at Oregon State University. (see also NBC News, Reuters, the Guardian)

“The Carnivore Way” could be key to large predator conservation (Phys Org)

North America’s mountainous backbone, stretching from Mexico to Alaska, could serve as a model for balancing the needs of large predators and people, an Oregon State University biologist suggests in a new book.

Valley Library gets a 3-D printer (Corvallis Advocate)

Oregon State has a new resource at its disposal, a 3D printer. Historically a prohibitively expensive technology, it is now possible for any OSU student or faculty or staff member to make their own designs come to life in just hours and, for only a few dollars.

Making a maker campus (MAKE)

Often when maker communities become aware of one another they begin to collaborate. That’s a concept I’ve seen play out many times, most recently in San Diego after our Mini Maker Faire. Harnessing this insight and being deliberate with its development can lead to great things. This idea has led to the Making a Maker City symposium at MakerCon and Making a Maker Campus which debuted this past week at Oregon State University.

OSU Joint Service Review scheduled for Friday (Gazette-Times)

“That’s part of a larger national trend, the decline of party loyalty,” James Foster, an Oregon State University-Cascades Campus political science professor who previously chaired the political science department at OSU’s Corvallis campus.

A hot year for bigger Southern Oregon pears? (Mail Tribune)

David Sugar, a pathologist with Oregon State University’s Southern Oregon Research and Extension Center, said the heat could make for bigger pears come harvest time. “I don’t think there are any negatives,” Sugar said. “It’s just very warm, and that stimulates the fruit size. This is the active cell-division stage of fruit development. The temperatures favor more cells, and then they plump up through the rest of the growing season.”
