An issue beyond Carolina (Inside Higher Ed)

To support its transgender students, Oregon State University has started handing out pink-and-blue-striped pins that read #IllGoWithYou. By wearing the pins, students offer to accompany their transgender peers to gender-exclusive spaces — like bathrooms and locker rooms — where they may feel unsafe. “It shows support,” said Cindy Konrad, assistant director of LGBT Services and Outreach. “It shows there are people on campus who care.”

How short bursts of activity can get you fit (Live Science)

Traditionally, experts have recommended that people exercise for at least 10 minutes at a time, at a moderate pace. But these recommendations are based on earlier studies that asked people to remember how much time they spent being active each day. Since people have trouble remembering very short activities, it was hard to study whether smaller amounts of exercise could improve your health, said Brad Cardinal, a kinesiology professor at Oregon State University.

Principled Pragmatism: Frederik Logevall on Obama’s legacy (The National Interest)

The conference brought together an international panel of scholars to examine how the United States developed its grand strategy, how it operates and what grand strategy might become in the future, said Christopher McKnight Nichols, assistant professor of history at Oregon State University and director of the OSU Citizenship and Crisis Initiative.

Blessing ceremony at Corvallis creek honors the lamprey (Register-Guard)

“Today is a marvelous day,” said Carl Schreck, professor of Fisheries at Oregon State University. “We’re honoring a fish with the name. But I think more importantly, we’re recognizing forever that these animals are an important part of our environmental ecosystem. It elevates our ecological consciousness and recognizing how important it is to preserve every cog in the wheel to have our ecological machine working.”

Western pond turtles in Sequoia test positive for pesticides (Kaweah Commonwealth)

“We need more information on how these compounds interact and how they affect non-target organisms,” Todd said. “Then we can continue to refine the types of pesticides used so they have fewer and fewer unintended consequences.” Additional coauthors include doctoral candidate Evan Eskew from UC Davis and Leah Chibwe, Jill Schrlau, and Staci Massey Simonich of Oregon State University.

UO officials, others decry students’ trashy mess at Lake Shasta in Northern California (Register-Guard)

Traditionally, Oregon State University students visit the lake on Mother’s Day weekend, and UO and University of California, Davis, students take to the lake on Memorial Day weekend, Sandbloom said. Last weekend preceded Memorial Day by a week.
