What grows quickly, is packed with protein, has twice the nutritional value of kale and tastes like bacon? The answer, according to scientists at Oregon State University, is a new strain of seaweed they recently patented. (see also MashableTIME, ABC News, KPTV and about a million other outlets)

Robot pets have a leg up on Fido (Popular Science)

“As humans, we’re eager to bond with things,” says Bill Smart, who studies human-robot interactions at Oregon State University. “People give their cars names. Kids give their stuffed animals back-stories.” So too with robots.

Quake, tsunami experts advise nervous Northwesterners on preparing for the Really Big One (Oregonian)

The next big Cascadia earthquake will probably hit Southern Oregon. The idea that everything west of Interstate 5 will be “toast” is “pure hyperbole.” But Oregonians should consult engineers concerning seismic retrofits to prepare for “The Really Big One.”
These are some of the comments made by quake and tsunami expert Chris Goldfinger and two of his colleagues during a “live chat” Friday on OregonLive. The geologists answered readers’ questions on-line during a forum that attracted more clicks – 5,000 and counting – than any live chat in OregonLive’s 18-year history.

Fossils indicate human activities have disturbed ecosystem resilience (Phys.Org)

While  is one part of this problem, researchers at Oregon State University and the University of New Hampshire have found that changes in land cover have been far more important in the last century. A particular concern is the introduction and expansion of invasive, non-native annual grasses at the expense of native shrublands. The end result, they say, is the transformation of the Great Basin into an ecosystem that is distinct from its 13,000-year history. (see also Science FridayNew HistorianRed Orbit)

Resveratrol, quercetin could provide new options for cancer therapy (Pharmaceutical Processing)

In laboratory experiments, researchers at Oregon State University have developed a system to increase the bioavailability of these compounds in the body by using “copolymers” that make them water soluble and allow their injection into the blood stream, creating levels that are far higher than could ever be obtained by diet or oral intake. (see also News-Medical, Nutrition Insight)

Oregon State University welcomed its first class of incoming freshmen to its Central Oregon branch Friday. The orientation was at the OSU building on the campus of Central Oregon Community College. That’s where teachers will hold most classes while construction continues on the new campus in west Bend. The OSU-Cascades freshmen start school in September, without a campus of their own.

Taking back her life: rape survivor Brenda Tracy gets new role with OSU (Gazette-Times)

“You know, it really is a beautiful campus,” Tracy said on Thursday while walking in front of the Student Health Services building, the same place she’ll likely report to in the fall when she begins speaking to OSU students. “It’s surreal to me to think of where I was at one point on this campus and then to think about these good thoughts today. It’s really amazing. It’s a long way to go.”

A conversation about OSU-Cascades in Bend (OPB Think Out Loud)

Oregon State University (OSU) broke ground earlier this month on a new campus in Bend. OSU-Cascades has had a presence in Bend for the last 14 years, primarily through the two-plus-two program, which allows students to start as  juniors at OSU-Cascades after completing two years of prerequisites at Central Oregon Community College (COCC).

Wildfire season worse than last year’s (Capital Press)

“My sense is that we started a little earlier this year, and we probably anticipated that it would be a little bit worse by now,” said John Bailey, associate professor of forestry at Oregon State University. “But as for the next week, two weeks or three weeks from now, it’s hard to tell.”

States give pharmacists more prescriptive authority (Pharmacist.com)

“We’re hopefully going to have the training program up and online by the beginning of November,” said Lorinda Anderson, PharmD, BCPS, Pharmacy Instructor at Oregon State University, who is working with the Oregon Board of Pharmacy to put the training program together.

My airborne toxic event (Willamette Week)

The tool was a wristband designed by researchers at Oregon State University and marketed by a company called MyExposome that is supposed to detect as many as 1,400 industrial chemicals I might come in contact with. I was invited to take part in a weeklong trial, and in the end I’d get a list of those compounds absorbed by my wristband.

U.S. ocean fishing law forged by Cold War politics (Pew Charitable Trusts)

That shore, however, wasn’t the only place where foreign fleets took up residence off the U.S. coast, said Oregon State University fisheries historian Carmel Finley. Thousands of foreign boats plundered haddock and other fish stocks off New England, and Stevens himself recalled in 2003 that Japanese trawlers clustered year-round in Alaska waters. But it was the industrial-scale Soviet fleet off the Pacific Northwest that really irked Magnuson.

When an earthquake hits, this North Portland office building will get a heads up (Oregonian)

But in the meantime, the private sector is developing its own early-warning systems, said Chris Goldfinger, a seismologist at Oregon State University.

Making waves: Students test their designs against simulated tsunamis (Gazette-Times)

When the first 5-centimeter wave slammed into the wood-and-tape structures, all the structures survived. But just three of the structures, built by students visiting Oregon State University on Tuesday, survived after being hit by a 10-centimeter wave. And after a towering 15-centimeter wave was generated in the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory’s tsunami wave basin, only one of the structures remained intact.

Less than four months after starting his new job as an Oregon State University Extension cropping systems agent in Malheur County, Stuart Reitz was tasked with helping the local onion industry tackle one of the biggest challenges it has ever faced.

Fight landscape fires with your plant choice (Statesman Journal)

“Fire specialists love to show us pictures of houses where people took precautions,” said Brad Withrow-Robinson, forester with Oregon State University’s Extension Service. “I’ve seen umpteen photos of land charred all around and a little house left standing in the middle. Not always, but often.”

Pandora moths again take flight in Central Oregon (Bend Bulletin)

What triggered the 1990s outbreak, which lasted for about a decade and moved through different parts of Central Oregon, is unknown, said Stephen Fitzgerald, a forestry professor at Oregon State University in Corvallis. But what brought the number of moths back in check to end the outbreak around Bend is known. He said a virus killed off many of them.
