Officials: Don’t touch seal pups at the coast (Statesman Journal)

Oregon State University marine mammal biologist Jim Rice is urging the public to refrain from touching or approaching the seal pups, which in most cases are not orphaned or abandoned, he pointed out. They frequently are left on the beach by their mothers, who are out looking for food. (see also KMTR, KOIN)

Rare twin foals born (KEZI)

Veterinarians are calling it a miracle: twin foals born in the Corvallis area. Vets at Oregon State University say it is rare for horses to have surviving twins, yet they are getting ready to send the newborns home.

Bringing back a rare butterfly at Finley (Gazette-Times)

“This is the first time we’ve had a planned release of Fender’s blue, ever,” said Paul Severns, a post-doctoral researcher at Oregon State University, who is using the release as a way to study which species of lupine the butterfly — which has been listed as an endangered species since 2000 — prefers as a host plant for its eggs and larvae. (see also Jefferson Public Radio)

Climate scientists describe hotter, drier Oregon (Gazette-Times)

How about a 24-inch rise in the sea level at Newport by 2100? Or an increase in temperature of up to 14 degrees Fahrenheit? Those are some of the possible effects of climate change in the Pacific Northwest, as outlined by Phil Mote, who helped to write the Northwest portion of the third national climate assessment that was released May 6. Mote is an Oregon State University professor and the director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute for the Oregon University System.

History of whaling in South Georgia and its impact revealed with DNA samples (MercoPress)

“From a preliminary look at the DNA sequences, it appears that there was a high level of genetic diversity in these whales, which is what we’d expect from pre-exploitation samples,” said Angela Sremba, a doctoral student in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife at Oregon State University and lead author on the study.

Scientists discover California brown pelicans nesting in the Northwest (Chinook Observer)

The unusual nesting behavior follows a northward shift in the birds’ migratory patterns over the past three decades, according to Oregon State University seabird ecologist Dan Roby. He noted that a similar pelican species has also been moving north and expanding its breeding range on the East Coast, which suggests it could be linked to climate change.

Consequences of the Truman Doctrine (Huffington Post)

A piece by OSU’s Christopher McKnight Nichols, assistant professor of history, Oregon State University. (see also OUP Blog)

Bend company makes engine work with natural gas (Bend Bulletin)

Onboard Dynamics effort stems from OSU-Cascades research.

Said the Wolff to the Beavers (Gazette-Times)

Wolff, a professor of writing and literature at Stanford University, visits Corvallis Thursday to accept OSU’s Stone Award for Lifetime Literary Achievement.

Add the buzz of mason bees to your garden (Blue Mountain Eagle)

The diversity of flowers requires a diversity of pollinators,” said George Hoffman, entomology researcher in Oregon State University’s Department of Crop and Soil Science. “Also, if one disease affects one pollinator, it doesn’t necessarily affect the others. Gardens need a diversity of pollinators so one disease or parasite won’t wipe out all its pollinators.”

‘Ellen Show’ surprises Oregon State students (KVUE Austin)

If you’re a fan of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, then Oregon State University was the place to be on Wednesday.

Looking beneath Mt. St. Helens (McClatchy)

Please expect limited access to certain areas of Weniger and Gilbert Halls at different times, depending on where work is occurring.  The ceilings and ceiling mounted lighting will be replaced in the corridors of both buildings and several offices and labs on the second floor of Weniger.  Demolition in corridors will be done either in the evenings or on weekends, but installation will be done during normal hours.  In addition, the floors will be replaced.

Reser lot: For the OSU Hoops for the Troops event on May 26, portions of Reser Stadium Lot will be closed from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Businesses south of the railroad crossing will find access via 15th Street from the south only as well as from side streets.

A temporary crossing will be established once construction progresses south of the crossing. Pedestrians coming from east of 15th should use pathways to the north to cross at Jefferson Street. 15th Street sidewalks will be closed.

Kerr South Crosswalk Closure: Due to safety concerns, it was decided to keep the Kerr south crosswalk closed  until the contractors have worked through to the south of the crossing. They will then establish and maintain a temporary crossing once there is less heavy construction and truck traffic in the area. This is estimated to several weeks. During this time, Jefferson Street will need to be used to cross 15th towards Kerr Admin. Signage will be in place to help direct pedestrians.
