Yellowfin is more often sold to consumers in steak form, but is used in small amounts in canned “light” tuna, which is mostly skipjack, according to SeafoodHealthFacts.org, an academic coalition based at Oregon State University.

Tick-borne diseases put us at risk in a warming world (Digital Journal)

What stage of life ticks are in is necessary to predicting tick-borne disease spread said Dr. Taal Levi of Oregon State University, who was working with Ostfeld, doing emergence studies. ” Pathogens that cause a lasting host infection, such as the Lyme disease bacterium, benefit from a lag between nymphal and larval feeding,” Dr. Levi pointed out. This isn’t true of other tick-borne diseases like the Powassan virus, because it is transmitted when the nymphs and larvae are feeding at the same time.

The university’s annual parking utilization study shows that the new system, which debuted with the start of fall term, has dramatically changed the behavior of the faculty, staff and students who park on campus. A three-tiered pricing system has convinced many to park in the lots near Reser Stadium for $95 per year for a C permit instead of in the traditionally more congested campus core, where permits cost either $330 for a B permit or $495 per year for an A permit.

Cattle damage to riverbanks can be undone (Science Codex)

Simply removing cattle may be all that is required to restore many degraded riverside areas in the American West, although this can vary and is dependent on local conditions. These are the findings of Jonathan Batchelor and William Ripple of Oregon State University in the US, lead authors of a study published in Springer’s journal Environmental Management.
