Jaunty two-legged robot takes a stroll in the grass (NBC News)

On a clear day at the Oregon State University campus, one often sees dogs out for their afternoon walk — but robots? That’s the sight you would have been treated to last week when roboticists from OSU brought their two-legged ATRIAS robot onto the quad to demonstrate its remarkable skills of locomotion.

More than 500 march at ‘Take Back the Night’ to end sexual assault (Gazette-Times)

Former Oregon State University student and sexual assault survivor Brenda Tracy took a deep breath Wednesday evening. And the 500 people assembled at the Memorial Union Plaza fell silent. (see also Daily Barometer)

Did she blow? NW submarine volcano likely just erupted (Seattle Times)

“All the alarm bells were going off,” said Oregon State University volcanologist Bill Chadwick, who along with a colleague predicted last year that the volcano would erupt in 2015. “It was very exciting.”

Istanbul, Portland, Tehran and Jakarta all at risk for life-threatening earthquakes in the future (Huffington Post)

Speaking to HuffPost Live on Tuesday, Chris Goldfinger, a professor of marine geology and geophysics at Oregon State University, addressed the question of where seismic destruction is likely to hit next.

“Places like Jakarta, Indonesia — a big city built on another subduction zone,” he listed. “Seattle, Portland, San Francisco are all on that list as well. We have a subduction zone in the Pacific Northwest.”

Asian & Pacific Cultural Center opens new building (Gazette-Times)

The full range of diversity was on hand for Wednesday’s grand opening of the Oregon State University Asian & Pacific Cultural Center, starting with a moment of silence for earthquake victims in Nepal.

Projecting the future: The latest and greatest from John Wager (1859 Oregon Magazine)

In late 2001, electrical engineering professor John Wager and his team of researchers developed the transparent transistor, which led to the discovery of an oxide thin-film technology (TFT), currently inside the new Apple 5K retina display panel.

Is 2015 the year that soil becomes climate change’s hottest topic? (Climate Progress)

Normally, carbon is bonded to minerals in the soil, which helps keep carbon locked in the soil and out of the atmosphere. A recent report by scientists at Oregon State University, however, found that when chemicals emitted by plant roots interact with minerals in soil, it can cause carbon to break free.

Researchers find 200-year lag between climate events in Greenland, Antarctica (Phys Org)

“The fact that  are opposite at the two poles suggests that there is a redistribution of heat going on between the hemispheres,” said Christo Buizert, a post-doctoral research at Oregon State University and lead author on the study. “We still don’t know what caused these past shifts, but understanding their timing gives us important clues about the underlying mechanisms. (see also National Monitor, Nature World Report)

When I eat honey, do I hurt bees? (Grist)

Smart beekeepers leave the bees enough honey to nibble on over the winter, added Dr. Ramesh Sagili, principle investigator at Oregon State University’s Honey Bee Lab. “[Beekeepers] aren’t technically taking off the comb, they’re taking the excess,” he said. So that excess is fine for you to enjoy spread over your toast – especially if you buy from local producers at farmers markets or well-stocked stores, as they often struggle to compete with cheaper honey imports from places like China.

Shades of Gray (Oregon Business)

The frenzy that often accompanies reports of corrupt public officials leads people to condemn a person accused of corruption without considering the events or situations that led up to the unethical actions; Keith Leavitt, assistant professor, Oregon State University College of Business, says: “Part of the problem is when we see something that is potentially corrupt behavior, or unethical behavior from an organization, we are trying to see if there is an evil or maligned person deliberately making that decision.”

Grain to Glass education (Corvallis Advocate)

Oregon State University’s fermentation science program is one of only two programs nationwide offering undergraduate and graduate degrees. The program is part of OSU’s prestigious Department of Food Science and Technology and it recently received a big boost, a $1 million donation towards building a state-of-the-art research brewery in Wiegand Hall.

OSU moving toward hiring hazelnut Extension specialist (Capital Press)

Oregon grows nearly all of the U.S. hazelnut crop, and Oregon State University plans to hire an extension specialist to keep pace with the industry’s rapid growth.

Early warm weather means more bugs, good and bad (Statesman Journal)

Oregon has had the second warmest year on record. This allows more invertebrate pests to survive and breed. It is early in the season, so here’s some hints for an overall strategy for pest control thanks to Amy Dreves, an Oregon State University entomologist who specializes in integrated pest management.

Sparks fly at GT forum (Gazette-Times)

It also contains sections establishing rights for “natural communities” such as plants and soil, provisions that would appear to limit the use of patented seeds for other crops by eliminating the ability to enforce seed patent rights within the county, and language stating that all corporations and government agencies would be banned from using any genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, within the county. That last provision has generated angst from Oregon State University officials, who say the measure could mean the end of $18.3 million in current research projects involving GMOs, not only in test plots for food crops but in medical research and other areas. Proponents of Measure 2-89 insist it would only apply to the local food system.

Newberry Volcano candidate for geothermal lab (Bend Bulletin)

The laboratory has joined with Oregon State University and Seattle-based AltaRock Energy in representing Newberry. AltaRock has ongoing geothermal experimentation of its own at Newberry Volcano, but that work is separate from this effort.
