Weasels are built for the hunt (New York Times)

“The weasel heart beats at up to 400 pulses per minute,” said Mark Linnell, a faculty research assistant who studies mustelids at Oregon State University. “They’re geared to run at full speed, and they’re always high-strung.”

Sperm whales have an ‘Eve’ (Hakai Magazine)

The huge flaw in how Congress is approaching burning wood for energy (Washington Post)

“It takes decades to centuries for carbon to accumulate in what I call the forest carbon bank,” said Beverly Law, a professor of global change biology and terrestrial systems science at Oregon State University. On the other hand, burning trees for energy releases all their carbon into the atmosphere immediately. This means that biomass energy has an immediate effect on the climate, one that would take years of tree-growing to reverse.

Newberry still in the running for geothermal lab (Bend Bulletin)

Now, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Washington leads the effort to make Newberry the research lab for enhanced geothermal, partnering with Oregon State University, GE Global Research and Statoil, a Norway-based oil and gas company; as well as Seattle-based AltaRock, which leases about 15,000 acres of Newberry land outside the boundary of the national volcanic monument from the U.S. Forest Service. By fall, the Energy Department could further narrow the field of potential sites from five to three.

Climate change may bring this tiny, unsung oyster back to plates (Popular Science)

For the last hundred years, the Olympia has been overshadowed by its more popular cousin. However, a recent study from Oregon State University has found that in one significant respect, the Olympia tops the Pacific–and it could have big implications for the future of oyster cultivation and consumption.

Scientists: Drop Arctic from plans for offshore drilling (Elko Daily)

Nearly 400 scientists have signed a letter urging President Obama to eliminate the possibility of Arctic offshore drilling in the near future by taking the Arctic Ocean out of the next federal offshore lease sale plan. The scientists include Jane Lubchenco, Obama’s former administrator of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, now a researcher and teacher at Oregon State University.

Cats comprehend some of the laws of physics, say researchers (Mother Nature Network)

“We still have a long way to go until we have an inclusive body of research on cat cognition,” a trio of Oregon State University scientists wrote in a 2015 review of feline behavioral science. “Many questions are still largely unexplored.”

Warm Springs seeks niche for drone testing (Bend Bulletin)

The conference attracted representatives from Gov. Kate Brown’s office, Oregon State University, the Oregon Department of Aviation and other groups to speak about different aspects of the future of drones in the state.

Scientists, advocates spar over role of biomass energy in climate change policy (Utility Dive)

“It takes decades to centuries for carbon to accumulate in what I call the forest carbon bank,” Beverly Law, a professor at Oregon State University, told the Post. “On the other hand, burning trees for energy releases all their carbon into the atmosphere immediately. This means that biomass energy has an immediate effect on the climate, one that would take years of tree-growing to reverse.”

Scientists discover novel way to recycle plastic (Voice of America)

A stunning 8 trillion microbeads a day, according to research from Oregon State University. And while the beads themselves aren’t dangerous, they soak up toxic waste and contaminants that end up in marine wildlife and fish, and from there they move right up the foodchain to us.

STEM-p out boredom this summer (Oregon Coast Today)

A free camp in Newport will offer middle school kids who like to create, build and find out how things work the chance to tinker to their hearts’ content this July 6 and 7. The two-day Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, or STEM, camp is offered through a partnership between the Oregon Coast STEM Hub and Oregon State University Precollege Programs.

Study: Man-made heat put in oceans has doubled since 1997 (Newsflash News)

Douglas fir meltdown (Register-Guard)

Grand is the Oregon State University Extension Service’s new forestry agent for Lane County. She’s only been on the job for a few months, and she’s spent a good portion of that time reassuring people that it isn’t a disease or pest that’s turning their Douglas-fir trees brown. It’s drought stress.

On Father’s Day, remember that the world’s Number 1 dad is the dad who is there all the time (Pasadena Star News)

We see plenty of dads, happily carrying their babies in Snuglis, and men’s bathrooms have changing tables, so all must be well. Not so fast, say Oregon State University professor Richard A. Settersten Jr. and assistant professor Doris Cancel-Tirado in their study, “Fatherhood as a Hidden Variable in Men’s Development and Life Courses.”
