Top 10 college towns you’ll never want to leave (College Magazine)

Anyone for potassium ion batteries? (Electronics Weekly)

Potassium can work with graphite in a potassium-ion battery, claims Oregon State University, which said the last time this possibility was explored was in 1932. “For decades, people have assumed that potassium couldn’t work with graphite or other bulk carbon anodes in a battery,” said chemist Xiulei Ji. “That assumption is incorrect. It’s really shocking that no one ever reported on this issue for 83 years.” (see also Altenergy MagBusiness Standard, New Electronics)

Habitat variability key to protecting cutthroat trout (UPI)

“We were curious about how trout in different streams respond to the same forest harvest scenario and how those responses may change when climate change is also considered,” lead study author Brooke Penaluna (OSU), a research fisheries biologist with the Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station, said in a press release. “We concluded that variability in stream habitat protects trout from both forest harvest and climate change.”

George Poinar Jr., a biologist at Oregon State University in Corvallis, found that a 20-million-year-old flea encased in amber has a plague-like bacterium on its proboscis that could be an ancestor of Y. pestis. While a definitive identification of the bacterium hasn’t been made — and may not even be possible — an ancient ancestor of the Black Death could help reveal the earliest steps in a tortured evolutionary path, and perhaps help pinpoint at what point the most deadly changes occurred.
