What does Brexit mean for Oregon? (OPB)

Oregon State University assistant professor Alison Johnston said the main issue is stock market volatility. “I think your big Oregon companies that I know of, companies like Nike, and Intel and Columbia, I don’t think they’re going to be impacted too much,” Johnston said.

Economic impact of agriculture (Ag Info)

More than 12 cents of every $1 generated and 1 job in 10 are attributed to the agriculture, forestry and fisheries industries in the five-state region of the Northwest – Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. This comes from a study recently commissioned by Northwest Farm Credit Services and conducted by Oregon State University Extension Service Rural Studies Program and the University of Idaho Extension Service.

New tool joins the fight against distracted driving (Oregonian)

Andie Portie recalls the time her friend crashed a car into a fire hydrant. The friend dropped a phone under the car seat and looked down to pick it up. The car swerved and went off the road, hitting the hydrant. The friend and a passenger were OK, she said, but the car was wrecked. That’s why Portie, a 21-year-old Oregon State University student, doesn’t text while driving.

Rape survivor Brenda Tracy meets Nebraska coach Mike Riley (USA Today)

“I’m very specifically proud of Oregon State University for hiring me as a consultant and all the work they’ve done,” Tracy said. “I’m also very proud of Coach Riley and this football team. Meeting with these players and meeting with the AD and Coach Riley, I feel like they have a really good synergy. They could really do something here. They could really set a good example in a really dark time right now in college football.”

Artificial intelligence has a ‘sea of dudes’ problem (Seattle Times)

“From a machine-learning perspective, if you don’t think about gender inclusiveness, then oftentimes the inferences that get made are biased towards the majority group — in this case, affluent white males,” said Margaret Burnett, a professor at Oregon State University’s School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Burnett developed GenderMag, which helps software developers build systems that account for the differences in gender of their users.

Back to the future in fashion (Oregonian)

History surrounds Figueroa at work on the Oregon State University campus. Closets and drawers line the room on the second floor of Milam Hall. Each closet is filled with antique clothing from different countries and time periods that reflect a distinct style.

‘T-Rex’ helps in earth quaking research (KATU)

Oregon State University engineers are teaming up for this research that will go on through the weekend near Longview. “Our team can add some local familiarity and expertise to the research” said OSU engineer Armin Stuedlein, “and of course, we can benefit from the data that’s collected. This quake is going to be the worst natural disaster this country has ever seen. We have, who knows, a day, a year, 50 years to prepare for it. We’re doing some things, we can do more.”

Story Next Store: Chris Chapman (Democrat-Herald)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start: Chris Chapman is not the director of the Oregon State University marching band. But it’s an easy mistake to make: Chapman directs enough bands that it could be tough for outsiders to keep straight. Specifically, the OSU professor and director of bands is the director of the OSU wind ensemble, the Springfield-based British brass band the Oregon Brass Society and Portland Wind Symphony, a semi-professional wind band.

Better lifestyle or bankruptcy? Farms adjust to new minimum wage increase (Oregonian)

Retired Oregon State University Extension Service economist Bruce Sorte spends a lot of time thinking about the future of food. He thinks farmworkers deserve to live comfortably, but worries it will spur a decrease in jobs. Already, machines are starting to replace workers. Robots can pick lettuce without requiring an hourly wage.

Extension service administrator has extensive empire (Gazette-Times)

Lindsey Shirley has perhaps one of the most far-reaching positions at Oregon State University. As associate provost and associate director of the OSU Extension Service, Shirley runs the day-to-day operations of the service and works with outposts in all 36 Oregon counties. She succeeds Deborah Maddy, who retired this year.

OSU seeks seniors for study of multivitamins’ impact (KTVZ 21)

Participants are being sought for a study at Oregon State University that hopes to answer a long-overdue question – does the use of multivitamin supplements really improve the nutritional status, and ultimately the health, of elderly adults?

Oregon State builds human-like robot, launches ‘next revolution’ (Oregonian)

Members of the Oregon State University robotics team got unexpected national attention when comedian Stephen Colbert mocked it in his late-night bit “Nerds vs. Robots.”

 Vigil draws crowd to honor Orlando victims (Hillsboro Tribune)

“We are here in solidarity,” said Mandujano-Guevara, a Glencoe High School graduate who attends Oregon State University. As a student leader at OSU and a member of the LBGTQ community, Mandujano-Guevara said he was moved to organize the vigil after the deadliest mass shooting in the nation’s modern history.

Crafting the future of Oregon’s expanding beer economy (Oregonian)

Shaun Townsend stands beside Oregon State University’s experimental hop field with a bag of bright green hops in each hand. He reaches into one, pulls out a few dried cones and crushes them gently between his palms, dipping his nose into his hands to take in the pine and citrus scent. Townsend, a hop breeder at the university, works with other scientists to develop new varieties, helping provide brewers with new taste profiles.

“Nitro” coffees and beers are the coolest thing to sip this summer. What makes them so creamy? (Quartz)

When the gas infused into the drink is nitrogen instead of CO2, a much denser foam of tiny bubbles forms. These small bubbles create a “silky, creamy, tactile sensation,” Thomas Shellhammer, a brewing chemist at Oregon State University, explained.

Experts: Britain’s withdrawal from EU won’t affect study-abroad programs (Diverse Issues in Higher Education)

“At this point, I don’t think we have reason to be concerned,” said Laurie Lewis, senior director for international programs at Oregon State University. She has worked with Oregon State’s GO (Global Opportunities) program for more than two decades.

A scientist discovered this stunning new shade of blue (Tech Insider)

The pigment was discovered in 2009 by chemist Mas Subramanian and his team at Oregon State University while they were conducting experiments connected to electronics. For one series of tests, the scientists mixed black manganese oxide with a variety of chemicals and heated them to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. (The name comes from the pigment’s elemental makeup, which includes Yttrium, Indium and Manganese.)

Dorm offers a new option for OSU students in recovery (Oregonian)

Oregon State University will become the first in the state to offer housing for students battling drug or alcohol addiction. The new dorm, which will open this fall, is one way OSU is adapting to meet the needs of students recovering from addiction. Three other major institutions nationwide — Texas Tech University, Ohio State University and St. Cloud University in Minnesota — provide recovery housing.

OSU researchers urge preparedness as the Cascadia Subduction Zone threatens (Oregonian)

In the next 50 years, he said, scientists believe there’s a 37 percent chance of a magnitude 8 to 9 earthquake striking somewhere along the northern half of the West Coast, known as the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Experts at OSU have worked to spread awareness and preparedness for when that quake, colloquially referred to as “The Big One,” hits the region.

Monkeys isolate from social activities as they age: Research (NH Voice)

But there are many who do not seem to be convinced by the study findings. Carolyn Aldwin, Director of the Center for Human Aging Research at Oregon State University said, “Evolutionary selection works primarily on critters of childbearing age. So when you’re looking at behavior in late life, it is very difficult to tie that up to evolutionary selection. The much more reasonable explanation is … energy. As you age, you have less energy”.

Hazed birds flock to bridge (Daily Astorian)

“The diet data indicates cormorants don’t really care what they eat, they eat what’s around and what’s easy to catch,” said James Lawonn, a biologist and avian predation coordinator for the department. As other prey begin to run through the rivers and up and down the coast after May, research by the department and Oregon State University show salmon make up even less of the birds’ diet.
