Mercury scrubbers on power plants clean up other pollutants too (Popular Science)

The researchers, from Oregon State University, weren’t even looking at the power plant, or into mercury emissions at all. They were studying a different pollutant, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which can be highly toxic. The researchers were tracking how PAHs generated by air pollution in Asia moved across the Pacific, and noticed a huge drop between their 2010 and 2011 data. The PAH levels dropped by 72 percent, and another type of pollutant, oxy-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (OPAHs) dropped by 40 percent. (see also Science Daily)

Ed Ray: OSU will do more to help sexual assault survivors (Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University President Ed Ray wants OSU students, staff and faculty to know that if they come forward about a sexual assault, the university will be there to help them. OSU recently hired gang rape survivor Brenda Tracy as a sexual violence consultant for the university, in part to attempt to hold the university responsible for its role in handling sexual assaults, both and on and off-campus.

OSU gift endows humanitarian engineering professor (Gazette-Times)

Experts predict Oregon’s drone companies will generate millions for economy (KATU)

Last year, experts at Oregon State University predicted the drone industry would generate $400 million statewide by 2017. “What we’ve found,” said Burtt, “is people are coming from all these different sectors and industries that you haven’t even heard of and saying, ‘If you could do this, you could revolutionize the way we go about data gathering or you could revolutionize the way we do our business.’”

OSU researcher: Migration wave led to population of Americas (KTVZ)

Researchers say the findings, which match closely with archaeological evidence from the period, clearly answer a much-debated question about how and when the Americas were first populated and counters ideas that migration to the Americas initially occurred in two waves. “This means the Paleo American model is essentially dead,” said Loren Davis, an associate professor of anthropology in the College of Liberal Arts at Oregon State University and co-author on the study.

The unknown dangers of marijuana pesticides (Houston Chronicle)

“It’s still the wild west,” says Dave Stone, a toxicologist at Oregon State University. “The work hasn’t been done to determine if pesticides pose a risk when you burn a product. The work hasn’t even been done for tobacco.”

Collapsed I-10 bridge set to partially reopen Friday (Nola.com)

Armin W. Stuedlein, an engineering professor at Oregon State University who studies how structures such as bridges interact with soil, said that in the wake of the collapse, there may be “room for improvement” in bridge design and protection standards. (see also KRON4, The Weather Space)

Nestle bottled water plant in the GorgeL Where it stands (KGW)

Todd Jarvis, an Oregon State University hydrologist who has studied bottled water for more than two decades, concurs. “There’s plenty of water there,” he said. Jarvis compared the water use to breweries or wineries. He believes part of the issue in Cascade Locks is that people are in awe of spring water. “People think springs are magical, so they’re kind of protective of them,” he said.

A modern kind of odyssey: The first assessment of ocean plastic pollution using drones (National Geographic)

By using the innovative drones, researchers have been able to compare the obtained results with the research on the ground. The low-flying eBee has been and will continue to be used during the expedition for two purposes: allowing Duke University and Oregon State University to analyse the macro-trash that is present on the shores.

Expert advice on the big one: Be prepared, not scared (KTVZ)

The concern, though, is that people are focusing on the most draconian or extreme scenarios, experts say, which can lead to a sense of fatalism. The reaction illustrates the state of earthquake and tsunami preparedness – or lack thereof – in the United States, said Patrick Corcoran, a Sea Grant education and outreach specialist at Oregon State University who works with coastal communities on disaster preparedness. (see also Phys.Org)

Dean Pantula meets with Indian President Shri Pranab Mukherjee (Impact)

During his travels to visit family in India this week, Dean Sastry Pantula met with India’s President Shri Pranab Mukherjee at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, the official residence of the Head of the State, one of the most magnificent structures in the world in terms of size and vastness. Dean Pantula was part of a special alumni group of the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata.

OSU study finds beetle-killed forests no more likely to burn (OPB)

Northwest forests that have significant damage from insects, like the mountain pine beetle or the western spruce budworm, might seem more prone to wildfires. Those critters can chew their way through a forest and leave large stands of dead trees in their wake. However a new study from Oregon State University shows that’s not necessarily the case.

OSU to recruit slug researcher, other experts (Capital Press)

Oregon State University plans to recruit an entomologist who specializes in slug research as part of a broader hiring spree made possible with added money from state lawmakers. (see also OPBStatesman Journal)

Can wooden skyscrapers revive US timber industry? (International Business Times)

Right now, DR Johnson Lumber Co. and Oregon State University are building a prototype CLT manufacturing plant nearby in Oregon. The only existing U.S. CLT plant is in Columbia Falls, Montana. It is owned by Smartlam Technologies and started running last year with the help of a USDA grant. The operators hope to receive approval by the American Plywood Association for the plant’s first products later this year. In 2012, Seattle updated its building code to permit CLT in new construction.

E. Oregon camelina trials look more promising during persistent drought (Capital Press)

Camelina won’t make farmers much money, but the oilseed crop could help growers cover some of the fixed costs they have on their land, said Clint Shock, director of Oregon State University’s Malheur County experiment station.

Deal with it (Willamette Week)

Oregon’s marijuana black market is large. Oregon State University sociology professor Seth Crawford estimated that 316,336 Oregonians bought pot illegally in 2013—nearly 8 percent of the state’s population.

Rising fossil fuel energy costs spell trouble for global food security (Science Daily)

“It is mostly a race between the capacity of microbe populations to grow on human foodstuffs and evolve adaptations to changing conditions and the capacity of humans to come up with new technologies for preserving, storing, and transporting food,” wrote lead author Sean T. Hammond, a postdoctoral researcher and interdisciplinary ecologist in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University.

OSU draws students from across Oregon for music workshops (Herald & News)

OSU prof named to Council of Foreign Relations (Gazette-Times)

An Oregon State University history professor has been named a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the university announced on Friday. Christopher McKnight Nichols, an assistant professor in the School of History, Philosophy and Religion at OSU, has focused his scholarship on America’s history and its relationship with other countries.

10 drought-tolerant perennials (Oregonian)

“This year has shined a spotlight on the need to incorporate more drought-tolerant plants in the garden,” said Gail Langellotto, a horticulturist with Oregon State University’s Extension Service. “I think that’s a trend that’s going to continue.”

Training a fruit tree into an espalier takes a dash of dedication (Coos Bay World)

Espaliered trees bring fruit down to eye level. They allow for easy picking and take advantage of small spaces. But don’t kid yourself into thinking espaliers are any easier than regular-sized trees, said Ross Penhallegon, a horticulturist with Oregon State University’s Extension Service.

How to control moles, voles and ground squirrels (Register-Guard)

“Generally people don’t get their eyes on the animals themselves, so they have to use other indicators,” says Dr. Dana Sanchez, an associate professor of fisheries and wildlife at Oregon State University and an Extension Service wildlife specialist.
