Worried about breast cancer? Eat your broccoli (Oregonian)

Researchers at Oregon State University and Oregon Health & Science University studied 54 women scheduled for a biopsy because of mammograms that indicated they might have an early stage of breast cancer. They were divided into two groups. One took a placebo and the second got a supplement of sulforaphane, which is found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables. (see also KVAL)

Ray touts OSU’s economic impacts (Gazette-Times)

In a presentation to the Corvallis Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, Oregon State University President Ed Ray touted the university’s economic impact while continuing to get some mileage out of the recent discovery of prehistoric fossils at Reser Stadium. “I think it would be fair to say OSU plays a mammoth role in the economy of both the region and the state,” he told the audience during a luncheon forum at the Corvallis Country Club.

The quake-maker you’ve never heard of: Cascadia (WZVN – Port Charlotte)

“Cascadia can make an earthquake almost 30 times more energetic than the San Andreas to start with, and then it generates a tsunami at the same time, which the side-by-side motion of the San Andreas can’t do,” said Chris Goldfinger, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University.

How to use pear growth regulators (Good Fruit Grower)

Put rose pruning and planting on the calendar (Coos Bay World)

On the west side of the Cascade Range, mid-February is generally time to start thinking about pruning, according to Amy Jo Detweiler, a horticulturist with Oregon State University’s Extension Service. In Central Oregon, April or May is the best time. In both cases, take your cue from the plants. When the buds begin to swell and get ready to break open, pull out your pruners.

Valentine’s Day and feeling worthy (Her Campus)

This Valentine’s Day, we encourage you to take the time to think about all the reasons to love yourself and all the things that don’t define your worth. It’s time to start believing and embracing that you are loveable, no matter how you identify, no matter your past, no matter your relationship status. We asked people from the So Worth Loving community and the Oregon State University community to tell us how they define worth and why they are worthy of love.
