Solomon Islands are hunting dolphins for their teeth during mass kills (Science World Report)

“In the Solomon Islands, the hunting is as much about culture as economic value,” said Scott Baker (Oregon State University), co-author of the new study, in a news release. “In other parts of the world, however, the targeting of dolphins and other small cetaceans appears to be increasing as coastal fishing stocks decline.” (see also International Business Times, The Guardian)

OSU determining design values for juniper (Capital Press)

Researchers measure giant “internal waves” that help regulate climate (Phys.Org)

“Ultimately, they are what mixes heat throughout the ocean,” said Jonathan Nash, an Oregon State University oceanographer and co-author on the study. “Without them, the ocean would be a much different place. It would be significantly more stratified – the surface waters would be much warmer and the deep abyss colder. (see also NatureEnvironmental News Network)

Students protest black killings (Gazette-Times)

More than 200 people gathered Wednesday on the Memorial Union quadrangle at Oregon State University on Wednesday for a silent protest against police killings of black people. Participants, many of them holding signs that read “Black Lives Matter” or that bore the names of African Americans killed by police, formed an inward-facing circle in the middle of the quad and kept a silent vigil from 11:45 a.m. until just after noon.

Tracing the WWI roots of the Civil Rights Movement (Gazette-Times)

Harris Black Cultural Center, sees the civil rights movement as a “narrative of a longer struggle.”

Distracted teen drivers (Radio Health Journal)

The cows come home (Reno News-Review)

Oregon State University beef cattle specialist Dave Bohnert: “The difficulty is we really do not have the answer. … [Studies] lay out many scenarios and possibilities, but in general we do not really have an idea what will happen if temperatures do warm over the long-term. Tie this with potential changes in precipitation patterns and we are dealing with an answer of ’It depends.’ I know that is not what you wanted to hear but that is about as good as I can do with the available data.”

Learn lawn care, save on trouble (Columbian)
