Picture a robot version of the Road Runner. That’s what researchers at Oregon State University are aiming for, and they’ve found that the best real-­life models for running robots may be birds. The research team worked with scientists from the Royal Veterinary College, studied the movements of ground­-running bird species and uncovered why these not-so-graceful bipeds are impressively efficient when darting from one place to another.

Study: Ebola could be contained by March (CBS News)

Researchers from Oregon State University, Yale University, and the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Liberia concluded that hygienic funeral practices, case isolation, contact tracing with quarantines and better protection for healthcare workers are the keys to stopping the Ebola epidemic.

The amazing story of the blind engineer (who is also a triathlete) (Fast Company)

Walsh holds an undergraduate degree in computer science and electrical engineering from Oregon State University. She says it’s tough to make math accessible to blind people, especially advanced math, where seeing problems and figures is an important part of learning.

A backyard poultry operation may sound like a great business, but better check city or county officials to make sure you can do it, said James Hermes, OSU Extension poultry specialist.

‘Mild’ systolic BP control adequate for adults above 65 (Big News Network)

The research at Oregon State University suggests that for adults over 60, keeping the systolic pressure at 150 or less is adequate. Lead author Leah Goeres said that the goal of a systolic pressure at or below 140 has been around a long time, and there’s still skepticism among some practitioners about accepting a higher blood pressure.

’64 Beavers remember their run for the Roses (Portland Tribune)

The voices were strong, the bodies mostly looking surprisingly good, and laughs were abundant as members of Oregon State’s last Rose Bowl team convened for a 50-year reunion Saturday. There was quarterback Paul Brothers, slapping hands and exchanging hugs with players from that 1964 team that went 8-3 and represented the fledgling AAWU in the ’65 Pasadena classic.

Robots that fly (Good Fruit Grower)

Thwart gophers: Tips to growing bulbs in pots (Oregonian)

“It’s easy to create a stunning display that begins to grow in the fall or middle of winter, then bursts into bloom in the spring or early summer,” said Heather Stoven, Oregon State University Extension horticulturist. “In fact, if you choose the right plants, you can create a bulb display that extends through the seasons.

OSU plant pathologist spent career studying costly nematodes (East Oregonian)

Richard Smiley, 71, is retiring after nearly 30 years with OSU’s Columbia Basin Agricultural Research Center north of Pendleton.

Endangered sea lions and sharks: Not a good mix (Environmental Protection)

The decade-long study was conducted by Newport’s Hatfield Marine Science Center and Oregon State University. As part of the teams’ research, 36 juvenile sea lions were implanted with special transmitters. Of those sea lions, 17 have been killed – 15 of which the transmitters reported the sea lions died by predation.

Cleanup project in Seaside honors memory of former OSU student (Seaside Signal)

Although it has been about five years since the widely reported death of 19-year-old Oregon State University freshman Alex Thompson in a drowning accident, his memory is not forgotten. Proof of that was the more than 75 people who showed up in Seaside a few weeks ago to participate in a beach cleanup project in his memory.
