House panel would block NSF from building two new ships (Science)

A congressional spending panel has rejected a request by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for $106 million to start building two new research vessels for the nation’s academic fleet. Yesterday’s action by an appropriations subcommittee in the U.S. House of Representatives puts the panel at odds with its Senate counterpart, which last month exceeded NSF’s request and backed construction of three vessels. A key lawmaker’s explanation of the House move also reveals a misunderstanding of the nature of the academic fleet and how it operates.

Drones aren’t planes (Slate)

Washington University in St. Louis law professor Neil Richards and Oregon State University roboticist William Smart have argued, “if we get the metaphors wrong for robots … it could have potentially disastrous consequences.” This is why Richards and Smart caution against designing legislation “based on the form of a robot, not the function.” While one of their main concerns is with lawmakers and the public treating anthropomorphic robots too much like intelligent mechanical humans, the “form over function” issue is also relevant to how the law treats drones, a question the courts will soon be asked to deliberate.

This is the surprising reason toothpaste could actually be bad for your health (The Sun UK)

Although it’s not certain what the exact impact is, scientists believe that if this ‘microbiome’ is unsettled, it can contribute to diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and malnutrition. Professor Thomas Sharpton, of Oregon State University, said: “There are consequences to constantly trying to kill the bacteria in the world around us – aspects we’re just beginning to understand.”

The Oregon State University Research Forests, OSU Extension Service, Benton and Linn counties and the Benton County Health Department are hosting the fourth annual National Get Outdoors Day event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Peavy Arboretum north of Corvallis.

Healthy lifestyle? Nearly every American gets a failing grade (Hartford Courant)

A study conducted by Oregon State University, the University of Mississippi and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has awarded nearly every adult in the country a failing grade. The researchers used four barometers to measure whether someone’s behavior could be considered healthy. They include an appropriate balanced diet, being active, meeting the recommended criteria for body fat percentage and not smoking.
