Oregon commission votes to fund public universities based on degrees awarded, not seats filled (Oregonian)

A state higher-education commission passed sweeping reforms Thursday designed to fund public universities based partly on how many Oregonians they graduate, instead of the number they enroll.

High school coaches not fans of injury prevention programs (Huffington Post)

Although injury prevention programs have been shown to help reduce leg and foot injuries in sports, less than ten percent of high school coaches implement the programs as designed, according to a new survey. Half of coaches are aware of the programs, but many believe they’re too complex or do not offer an advantage over existing practices, researchers found. “There are a ton of different programs out there,” said lead author Marc F. Norcross of Oregon State University in Corvallis.

OSU microbiologist heads for South Africa (KLCC)

KLCC’s News Director Tripp Sommer speaks with Joey Hulbert. He has a master’s degree from OSU and this Fall he begins doctorate work in microbiology and plant pathology at University of Pretoria in South Africa. Joey also wants to create “citizen scientists” to save South African trees.

OSU Health Fair focuses on the forgotten side of health (Gazette-Times)

You can grow hops, too! (Bend Bulletin)

Oregon State University’s hops breeder, Shaun Townsend, advises planting hops in well-drained soils with full sun exposure, and at least a 10-foot trellis or pole system is needed to support the bines. One or two plants should be plenty for the home grower.

Speakers debate local GMO ban (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University professor Dan Arp prefaced his remarks by noting that, as a public institution, OSU is legally prohibited from endorsing or opposing any piece of legislation. He then went on to list examples of beneficial OSU research using genetically engineered organisms (work on Lou Gehrig’s disease, plant pathogens and soil chemistry) and the value of that research to the university and the local economy ($18 million in current funding, an unspecified number of jobs, and research involving more than 120 faculty members).

How one team solved a tricky daylighting problem with BIM/VDC tools, iterative design (Building Design and Construction)

Piicture this: it is an uncommonly clear December morning in Corvallis, Ore., and a student is working hard on a white paper in the new Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering Building at Oregon State University. His workspace is on the south side of the building and, therefore, the low winter sun is beaming onto his computer screen, making it difficult for him to work.

Meet the new supermarket superfoods (She Said Australia)

To get all the goodness from this green plant, be sure to steam it. A study by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University has found that if broccoli is cooked until it’s too soft, it’s health value takes a dive. Instead, throw it in a steamer or sauté some stems for 2-3 minutes.
