Night of the Zombees? Scientists seek link to colony collapse disorder (Christian Science Monitor)

And Ramesh Sagili, assistant professor of apiculture at Oregon State University told the Associated Press he agrees. “We have several other stresses on bees and we don’t want any other stress like this one. We have to be cautious, but I’m not alarmed that this parasite is going to create a big problem.” (see also CBS Local, Fox News Science)

Corvallis rental vacancy rate down to 1.2 percent (Gazette-Times)

Two weeks into the school year at Oregon State University, the rental housing vacancy rate has dropped a full percentage point, city officials say. City of Corvallis housing specialist Bob Loewen, who regularly tracks the vacancy rate in town, pegs the current rate at 1.2 percent. That’s down from the 2.2 percent Loewen estimated at the end of August.

Orange dog poop on area trails draws attention to public health concern (Gazette-Times)

“We’ve been getting dozens of complaints from people noticing the increasing amount of poop on the trails and it’s been getting worse the last couple of years,” said Ryan Brown, recreation and engagement program manager for OSU Research Forests. “We’re all dog lovers and dog owners and walkers of these trails and we know the opportunity to have dogs out here is super important to the community of Corvallis. And 99 percent of them are really careful and clean up after their dogs. But we want people to be aware that this iscausing a lot of problems.”

Harvesting hazelnut, walnut and chestnut trees (Oregonian)

Harvesting hazelnuts means gathering them as they fall from the trees – before autumn rains, if possible, said Ross Penhallegon, a horticulturist with Oregon State University’s Extension Service. You can shake branches lightly, but in most cases the nuts will fall on their own.

The 9 best books to read this fall, according to celebrities (Hamptons Magazine)

Good, a British mathematician and cryptologist, in an essay titled “Speculations Concerning the First Ultraintelligent Machine.”

Growing pathways to study abroad (University World News)

Tim O’Brien, vice-president of global business intelligence and development at INTO University Partnerships, and an expert adviser for the StudyPortals-Cambridge English report, said most US universities realise they need to become more international for their own students to compete in the global economy. He pointed to Oregon State University as a good example of an institution that has gone from largely serving its local community to having a worldwide reach through partnering with INTO.

Mattel promotes girl power with Barbie “Imagine the Possibilities” campaign (Brand Channel)

The power of play to inspire and shape girls’  career choices was the subject of a recent study. As The Atlantic reports, researchers at Oregon State University had 37 girls ages 4 and 7 randomly assigned to play with one of three dolls.

Oregon State puts more of the sea on a plate (IFT.org)

In fact, 99% of the food humans consume comes from terrestrial sources, and less than 1% comes from marine sources. Researchers at Oregon State University are working to change that. Professors and staff at the university’s Food Innovation Center and Seafood Research & Education Center (the Seafood Lab) are exploring more of what the sea offers and putting it on a plate. Two of their most prominent projects involve a type of seaweed with a familiar flavor when cooked and surimi seafood.
