No sunscreen needed (Environmental News Network)

For us, we take precautions, but how do the rest of the animal kingdom fare?

Million-year-old bubbles reveal Antarctica’s oldest climate snapshot (Live Science)

Scientists uncovered the ancient climate record from Antarctic blue ice. The ice core was drilled from a region called the Allan Hills, about an hour by plane from the McMurdo research station. Higgins’ co-authors included Michael Bender, also of Princeton, Paul Mayewski of the University of Maine and Ed Brook of Oregon State University.

Oregon debates canola restrictions (Statesman Journal)

The bill allocated about $700,000 for Oregon State University to study the issue during the moratorium.

“WhaleWatch” data helps protected endangered whales using NASA satellites (Space Coast Daily)

“The term ‘awesome’ is almost trite nowadays, people use it a lot. But for blue whales it’s an appropriate term,” said Mate, director of the Marine Mammal Institute at Oregon State University.

OSU scientists develop improved way to assess cancer risk of pollutants (Health Canal)

Scientists at Oregon State University have developed a faster, more accurate method to assess cancer risk from certain common environmental pollutants. Researchers found that they could analyze the immediate genetic responses of the skin cells of exposed mice and apply statistical approaches to determine whether or not those cells would eventually become cancerous.

OSU group tapped to lead drone effort (Gazette-Times)

The Federal Aviation Administration has chosen a consortium that includes Oregon State University to take the lead on finding ways to integrate drones into mainstream aviation.

In a snake orgy, ejaculate can get expensive (Gizmodo Australia)

Christopher Friesen and Robert Mason, herpetologists from the University of Sydney and Oregon State University, realised that they could determine exactly how much energy it took to make these plugs. Male garter snakes do not eat while they breed, so every plug they make relies on their stored fat reserves. And since the snakes make sperm in the fall and store it until they breed in the spring, the researchers reasoned that any energy they spent on their ejaculate during the breeding season went into making the plug.

Have a gardening question? Ask an OSU expert (Oregonian)

When there are no peas in the pods or flowers on the dahlias, get the answers you need with Ask an Expert, an online question-and-answer tool from Oregon State University’s Extension Service.

Campuses deploy software-defined storage (Ed Tech)

When unexpectedly heavy use of the virtual desktop infrastructure outgrew existing local storage capabilities at Oregon State University’s College of Business, Engineer–Systems Administrator Alan Sprague had an idea: What about software-defined storage (SDS)? The College of Business suffered performance bottlenecks for high input/output operations per second workloads, Sprague says. There was no money in the budget to invest in adding a physical storage area network, but a virtual SAN cluster that would absorb those existing drives and balance workloads for optimal performance could be accommodated.

Oregon State’s walking robot is a step ahead (Gazette-Times)

But the researchers behind a new walking robot designed and built at Oregon State University say their robot is both more efficient and mobile than any that’s come before it, because its design is based on a study of the motion of humans and ground-running birds.

New group at work to ease livability concerns (Gazette-Times)

The city of Corvallis and Oregon State University are continuing to fight the battle of livability in the neighborhoods surrounding the campus. The Collaboration Corvallis project studied the issue for three years, while also delving in parking and traffic and planning issues. And one of the recommendations that came out of the collaboration was that a group should be formed to continue the work.
