Working with whales (Think Out Loud)

Bruce Mate has been studying whales for close to three decades and recently tracked the longest mammal migration on record. In the 1970s, he pioneered the technology that made this sort of tracking possible. Mate is based at the Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center, but his work has taken him all over the world, following gray whales as well as blue whales — the largest mammals that have ever lived.

Still fighting to end discrimination (Gazette-Times)

Calvin Henry has been involved in political activism and race relations in Oregon since he came to Oregon State University in 1969 after a stint in the Air Force.

The U.S. Department of Energy awarded $400,000 to a team of researchers at the Pacific Northwest National LaboratoryOregon State University and Seattle geothermal developer AltaRock Energy Inc to study the feasibility of establishing a laboratory at Central Oregon’s Newberry Volcano.

Really, canine science is open access (Scientific American)

I recently checked in with Monique Udell, guest editor of the special issue ‘New Directions in Canine Behavior’ and head of the Human-Animal Interaction Lab at Oregon State University to learn more about the issue and her thoughts on the future of canine science. As an added bonus, she also shared how studying dogs has affected her.

OSU students head for Nepal to help non-profit with earthquake aid (KATU)

Emergency crews in Nepal are racing the clock to save people affected by a massive earthquake that struck there over the weekend. Now, two Oregon State University students are going there to help. Christian Nishioka and Cole Miller started planning their trip to Nepal in January long before the earthquake struck as an assignment for their Transnational Transmedia course, which requires students to document the work of organizations in developing countries

Do plants have rights? GMO fight returns to Oregon with Benton County vote (Oregonian)

The battle over genetically-modified food has returned to Oregon, despite attempts by politicians to stop county-by-county bans. And the debate in Benton County is pulling in academics at Oregon State University, who worry any ban there could limit their biomedical research. (see also Gazette-Times)

New advocacy center at OSU will support survivors of sexual violence (LIFE@OSU)

The OSU Advocacy Center for Survivors of Violence will provide confidential and accessible services including a full-time advocate whose sole job is to listen and support survivors and to help them navigate available resources, making sure the survivor’s wishes and needs are respected.

Last stand for southwestern white pines? (Arizona Daily Sun)

At the same time, researchers at Oregon State University will grow seedlings collected from the same mother trees as Waring’s crop, infect them with the white pine blister rust and then monitor whether the trees die or demonstrate resistance toward the disease.

A plague of pests in Oregon? Dry, warm winter has farmers, foresters on watch (Oregonian)

This year’s abnormally warm winter — and a fourth straight year of drought conditions — has Oregon State researchers watching closely to see if a plague of new or resurgent pests could devastate agriculture across the region. Cold winters, after all, are what often kill problematic bugs, or at least keep their numbers in check.  “We’re just on the edge of our seats,” OSU forestry professor Dave Shaw said.

Benton County, OSU Extension team up for new outdoor education program (Gazette-Times)

Philomath Elementary third-graders clustered around to get a closer look at the piece of decomposing log. Reid Sweetkind, an Oregon State University biology student and the kids’ teacher for the lesson, pointed out for them the various bugs and fungi living in a chunk of decaying wood she pulled from the log.

It’s efficient. It’s a truck. It’s a supertruck (Portland Tribune)

They worked with professors and students from Oregon State University on “lightweighting” — creating structures that saved weight without reducing function. Rotz sought input from the National Laboratory System in developing the truck’s waste heat recovery system.

Children of the corn: Baby corn, demystified (Serious Eats)

The trademark flavor of sweet corn, let alone anything resembling a mature kernel, has yet to develop at this early stage, since “sugars do not start accumulating until well after pollination,” explains Jim Myers, professor of horticulture at Oregon State University. That means that pretty much any breed of corn can yield tender, succulent baby corn, from flint corn (your popcorn and grits), dent corn (corn chips and tortillas), and sweet corn (corn on the cob), to field corn—corn destined for industrial uses like oils and sweeteners, livestock feed, and bio-fuel.
