Child care in Oregon insufficient, costly, says new report (Oregonian)

Bobbie Weber, an Oregon State University expert on child care costs, has testified in support of HB 2015 but has told The Oregonian/OregonLive that current subsidies ultimately have little effect on child care costs because the costs are primarily market-driven. In other words, high-income parents who can afford to pay a lot for child care keep costs high for everyone else.

Oregon State researcher’s work to help children’s self-regulation gets $3.1 million in grants (Oregonian)

Oregon State bunch gathers grass (Nature World News)

Instructor Matt Shinderman and volunteers gathered plants including bunch grasses, wildflowers, and bushes from the 10-acre site where the campus will be built. Not only will the plants require zero watering and maintenance once they are established, they could become a “living laboratory” where OSU-Cascades students could learn about fire ecology, ecological restoration, and urban landscaping, according to the Bulletin.

We wanted to come up with a more comprehensive archive.”

Science leads foresters to fish-friendly practices (Register-Guard)

Even if a temperature increase of less than 1 degree occurs at the point of harvest, a 2012 Oregon State University study on several watersheds found that there were no perceptible temperature increases downstream from harvest activities.

Dr. Sex gives up column but will remain outspoken (Gazette-Times)

The Gazette-Times sat down Thursday with Greaves, also known as Dr. Sex. Greaves, a Tangent resident,  just finished her 20th year teaching human sexuality at Oregon State University.

Is an invasive bug the answer to saving an iconic East Coast conifer? (TakePart)

Hemlock trees are a critical part of the East Coast’s forest ecosystem, with a natural range stretching from Maine to Georgia. “It’s one of the only conifers in a primarily hardwood forest, so it’s a keystone species that provides a lot of habitat,” explained Oregon State University entomologist Darrell Ross. (see also Register-Guard)

Scales, tails and sales (Oregon Coast Today)

If you feel a little unsure about how to walk the docks and shop for fish, you are not alone: a survey conducted by the Oregon State University Sea Grant Extension Service a few years ago found that the number-one reason people did not buy fish from the docks was that they felt intimidated by the process.

Bend once again is becoming a hub for economic growth (Bend Bulletin)

“We have a much more diverse economy than we did 10 years ago, or even eight years as we entered into the last recession,” said Roger Lee, executive director of Economic Development for Central Oregon. “It’s a combination of things — manufacturing; high-tech; bioscience; health care has really expanded over here; education, with the (Oregon State University) growing, and tourism has been very strong the last four or so years.”

The case for a comprehensive wellness center on campus has never been stronger, explains Jenny Haubenreiser, executive director of student health services at Oregon State University. “The need for primary care is acute in this country, particularly for students, and especially if they’re coming in from out of town,” she says. “There is a consumer literacy piece to the Affordable Care Act–including networks, copays, deductibles and more–that we can help with.”

Experts see Oregon hazelnuts crop poised for growth (Register-Guard)

A couple of decades ago, a deadly fungus threatened to wipe out an industry currently generating about $100 million a year in revenue.

(see also San Francisco Chronicle)

OSU Master Food Preservers answer questions statewide (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University’s food preservation and safety hotline returns for its 35th year beginning July 13. With a renewed interest occurring within food preserving, the statewide hotline is as important as ever, according to Nellie Oehler, who helped create the OSU Extension Service’s Master Food Preserver program. The program trains volunteers to answer questions on the help line, as well as at events such as farmers markets and county fairs.

Water utility teams up with farmers to fight hazelnut worms (Capital Press)

The mating disruption technique reduced the filbert worm population. Some moths find each other by accident, but the process takes longer and weakens the reproductive cycle, Oregon State University horticultural entomologist Vaughn Walton said. Applied at a rate of 10 pheromone rings per acre, the option works as well as spraying and costs slightly more, Walton said.
