Why more Tibetan nomads are going vegetarian (VICE)

“What’s changing is the social-economic context. It’s easier to be vegetarian. Today, you can get from [the Kham region of Tibet] to Chengdu in a day. It used to take months and it’s not like you can transport vegetables for a month on the back of a yak,” Geoff Barstow says. Barstow is an assistant professor at Oregon State University who specializes in Tibetan vegetarianism. He is also the author of the forthcoming book Food of Sinful Demons: Meat, Vegetarianism, and Limits of Buddhism in Tibet, coming out in 2017.

OSU chemist’s new blue causes ripples (LIFE@OSU)

Back in 2009, the world was first introduced to a new blue pigment discovered by OSU chemist Mas Subramanian.  He and his team were experimenting with new materials that could be used in electronics applications. They mixed manganese oxide – which is black – with other chemicals and heated them in a furnace to nearly 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. One of the samples turned out to be a vivid blue.

Newport-based Kaety Jacobson, a Sea Grant fisheries specialist with the Oregon State University Extension Service, said if you’re even thinking about buying that day, you are urged to not only bring cash but a cooler with ice.

Workers unearth something extra during OSU expansion (Construction Equipment Guide)

Motorcycle deaths increase in summer (KBND)

Rodgers says more motorcycles hit the road during summer because of nice weather, which will likely bring more crashes. “At this time, we’re about even with our fatality and accident history from last year; it’s just that it’s more apparent, right now. One thing I would like to point out is that Oregon has one of the lowest fatality rates per capita in the nation.” Oregon is also one of only a handful of states to require riders to take safety training before receiving their endorsement. Team Oregon is a joint effort between Oregon State University and ODOT, offering that mandatory safety training. They also provide refresher courses for experienced riders.

Soap Makers for Social Justice (Terra)

Supportive environment (Register-Guard)

Brooke Edmonds, a Master Gardener with the Oregon State University Extension Service, concurs. “A lot of people will buy the cheap tomato cages not realizing that they have an indeterminate tomato and they very quickly outgrow that cage,” she says. Look at the growth size of the mature plant when making your selection.

Everyone’s got yellow fever for tumeric (Macleans)

When Barbara Delage, a scientist with the Linus Pauling Institute’s Micronutrient Information Center at Oregon State University, did a thorough review of the published literature on curcumin, she found little evidence to support it as a miracle ingredient. “Curcumin in humans is not bioavailable, meaning you can eat a lot of curcumin in supplements, but very little if any will reach the blood, let alone tissues,” she says.

Traffic and Maintenance

29th Street: Construction on NW 29th Street will mean periodic street closures between Tyler and Grant Avenues starting on June 20. The project, which will replace aging sanitary sewer lines and mains, is already underway, but closures will be required from about 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily as the project proceeds this month. Up to two blocks will be closed at any given time for roughly three weeks per section as the project move north on 29th Street. Corvallis Transit System (CTS) will alter bus routes around the construction site.

Washington Way: The city will be reconstructing the railroad crossing at 35th Street and Washington Way this summer.  During the reconstruction of the railroad at-grade crossing, road and rail work are to take place, which will result in sidewalk and roadway closures of 35th Street July 25- Aug. 26. Additional information on closure details and duration will be shared as information is received from the city.  For questions or additional information, contact Nathan Patterson.

Hwy 20 Eddyville project update: Travelers between Newport and Corvallis should expect some brief delays to let trucks on and off of the highway at both ends of the project on U.S. 20. Ten-hour nighttime complete closures are planned to occur from Sunday, July 17 through the end of October, five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday. These are necessary because the drilling, blasting, and earthwork operations are above and alongside the highway and the contractor needs enough room and time to do this safely. These are currently scheduled to occur from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., but that time may be adjusted, depending on construction safety needs. The current plan is for the road to be completely open on Friday and Saturday nights.
