OSU students drive change for format of yearbook (Gazette-Times)

After a 120 year run, the Oregon State University yearbook is done. But a group of dedicated students — mostly volunteers or working for class credit — are creating a new free magazine to fill the void left by the publication’s end. Jodie Davaz, the editor-in-chief of the Beavers Digest, said the yearbook had been struggling for years because few students were willing to pay its $50 to $60 cost.

Education reduces stigma of facial paralysis (Science Codex)

There is a natural tendency to base first impressions on a person’s face, but those impressions can be inaccurate and often negative when the person has facial paralysis, said Kathleen Bogart, an assistant professor of psychology in the College of Liberal Arts at Oregon State University. (see also Disability World, Rocket News)

Oregon’s Internet of things (and bees) (Portland Tribune)

If this ruffled the next panelist, Karti Mayaram, Professor and Associate School Head, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Oregon State University, he did not show it. He showed an image of a bumble bee, which OSU researchers have equipped with tiny radio frequency sensors. They track the movement of bees as they search for pollen, nectar and nesting sites. Sensors are so cheap and light now that they can be literally sprinkled in a forest to track changes in fauna and flora, rather than sending a researcher out to camp in his hard-shell truck.

The future of control: Putting virtual wind turbines inside of real ones (ARS Technica)

After all, we know precisely how things like engines are structured, and we know what’s put into them in terms of fuel and oxygen. Doesn’t that give researchers a huge advantage? Maybe not, according to Ars contributor Kyle Niemeyer, now a research assistant professor at Oregon State University working on combustion.

The Corvallis City Council moved forward Tuesday night on a pair of decisions that will affect the city’s relationship with Oregon State University. First, councilors agreed to ask city staff to come up with a temporary memorandum of understanding that will allow the Collaboration Corvallis project to move forward.

Southern Oregon is no slouch as a wine region (Sacramento Bee)

Thus, apple and pear orchards succeeded vineyards, and that’s how things were until 1967, when a trial vineyard was planted at the Oregon State University Experiment Station at Central Point, just north of Medford. Vines thrived, leading to a revival of vineyards and wineries in the region starting in the early 1970s.

OSU student crowned Dairy Princess (Gazette-Times)
