Compound from hops lowers cholesterol, blood sugar, and weight gain (Science 2.0)

A recent study at Oregon State University has identified specific intake levels of xanthohumol, a natural flavonoid found in hops, that significantly improved some of the underlying markers of metabolic syndrome in laboratory animals and also reduced weight gain. (see also OregonianDrug Discovery & Development, Medical Xpress)

Oregon kite power start-up gets state and federal funding (KUOW)

Beaverton-based eWind Solutions is working with Oregon State University to develop kites that generate power by flying in a figure ‘8’ pattern. The hope is that will make the kites pull hard on their cords, which are attached to a ground-based ratchet system that spins a power generator.

A special bond (Register-Guard)

Dr. Jacob Mecham, professor and clinician at Oregon State University’s Veterinary School and the vet who removed Endo’s first diseased eye, says he was struck by Wagner’s gift for training. “I was very impressed with Morgan,” he says. “When I met her, I thought she followed Parelli or another natural horsemanship training method, but she was self-taught. She just has a natural talent for training animals.”

Drones’ new mission: Save the forest (Take Part)

The future of these forests—and those around the world—may depend on new technologies like those being developed in Wing’s Lab at Oregon State University here.

Housing plan becomes homeless plan (Gazette-Times)

Passed unanimously a plan by Oregon State University to build a new maintenance facility for agricultural vehicles on Campus Way. OSU’s original proposal called for nine new sparking spaces for the depot. However, councilors asserted that 24 parking spaces on an adjacent paved area that OSU claimed were temporary must be replaced as well. The university’s new plan calls for 14 spots next to the depot, with 19 more to be created about 350 yards away near the Energy Center. The city and university are operating under an agreement that requires the replacement of parking displaced by new OSU development.

Trump’s misguided and empty promise of protectionism dovetails with his appeal to isolationism (History News Network)

A piece by Christopher McKnight Nichols, Assistant Professor of History and Director of the Citizenship and Crisis Initiative at Oregon State University.

Having your filling (ASME)

“We’re talking about fillings and that means billions of teeth,” says Jay Kruzic, professor in the school of mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineering at Oregon State University. And that’s where bioactive glass can come in, he says. “Bioactive glass has mineralization to defend against tooth and bone decay and has some great possibilities,” he says.

Three Pulitzers for New Yorker (New Yorker)

Kathryn Schulz, who arrived at The New Yorker less than two years ago, has won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing, for “The Really Big One,” her piece on the more than a little troubling geology of the Pacific Northwest. Her evocations of the earthquake in Japan in 2011 and of the earthquake that could occur in the states of Washington and Oregon stay with us much like works of the best fiction, to say nothing of horror films. (article features OSU’s Chris Goldfinger)

Two wolves remain on Isle Royale (Michigan Tech)

Research by Michael Nelson of Oregon State University, shows overwhelming support for having wolves on Isle Royale, even if that involves intervention.

iPads can change math instruction, study shows (Education Week)

To investigate the impact of technology on teaching and learning, Oregon State University-Cascades researcher and instructor Rachael Schuetz conducted the experiment last year in a 2nd grade classroom at William E. Miller Elementary in Bend, Ore. Schuetz presented her findings on last week in a lecture at her university, according to the Bulleton, an Oregon-based news service.
