Swiss needle cast fungal disease damages growing number of Oregon Douglas-fir trees (Register-Guard)

A survey conducted by the Swiss Needle Cast Cooperative of Oregon State University determined that the disease currently affects more than 590,000 acres of trees in the Coast Range — an area more than four times larger than was found when surveying began in 1996.

American craft beers hop across the Atlantic to meet growing British demand (Wall Street Journal)

Shaun Townsend, professor at Oregon State University’s Hop Breeding and Genetics program, said American hops “tend towards the citrus notes such as lemon, grapefruit, and tropical fruits as well as pine, earthy and other unique characters.” British hops, by contrast, tend to have a woodier, spicier aroma.

Identifying Poverty From Space (CityLab)

Jamon Van Den Hoek, a geography professor at Oregon State University who did not work on the paper, said overcoming the data scarcity of sub-Saharan Africa drives most of the research in the region. In the past few years, researchers have tried to deduce local economic fates by analyzing cellphone metadata or by detecting whether roofs are made of metal or thatch.

Lacking other meaningful data, university faculty devise their own evaluation systems (Science Codex)

Filling in bubbles on institutionalized end-of-term teacher evaluation questionnaires, a standard practice at many large research universities, often fails to produce timely and meaningful data for improving instruction, according to a new study from Oregon State University that explores how faculty are evaluating their teaching practice.

This ‘Kangaroo’ Dog Is On A Journey To Run And Play Like A Regular Pup (Huffington Post)

She said it’s remarkable that Tigger has made it this far — many dogs born with his condition don’t live long because they quickly get severe arthritis that renders them completely immobile. That’s why Good is working with Ostrin and veterinary surgeon Jennifer Warnock of Oregon State University to plan a comprehensive surgery for Tigger.

Study: Renewable Industry Could Absorb Coal Layoffs (Utah Public Radio)

The growth of solar- and wind-related jobs could easily absorb coal-industry layoffs over the next 15 years and provide full-time careers, if investments are made to retrain workers. That’s according to a new study. Edward Louie, the report’s co-author and a researcher at Oregon State University, said between solar and wind, Wyoming is in a good position to become more energy independent and a leading exporter of renewable power.

Puget Sound has new climate change refugees. They’re pelicans. (OPB)

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they aren’t prospecting for new locations,” says Dan Roby, a professor of wildlife ecology at Oregon State University who studies pelicans and other birds. “White pelicans do seem to be expanding and establishing new sites. It seems like it’s only a matter of time.”

Worried about a bleak future, climate change activists hesitant to have kids (NPR)

Excellent idea, Rieder says. But no amount of conservation gives you a pass. Oregon State University researchers have calculated the savings from all kinds of conservation measures: driving a hybrid, driving less, recycling, using energy-efficient appliances, windows and light bulbs. For an American, the total metric tons of carbon dioxide saved by all of those measures over an entire lifetime of 80 years: 488. By contrast, the metric tons saved when a person chooses to have one fewer child: 9,441.

Pollinator Plight (1859 Magazine)

Soil is Robertson’s yoga. In her backyard acreage, she created circular irrigation and planting architectures, techniques she learned while working at Oregon State University’s experimental wheat fields on plots around the state. She keeps a Warré beehive, new and empty, at the property’s edge. “This area is perfect for the bees when they come,” she said.

Cancer breakthrough? Using chemotherapy to control, not cure, in new drug therapy (Medical Daily)

Researchers from the Oregon State University and the United Kingdom have come up with a new approach to cancer treatment, in which significantly lower doses of chemotherapeutic drugs are given to patients at more frequent time intervals. Such a drug delivery system, the researchers say, would have several goals of killing cancer cells and halt the progress of resistance to the cancer drugs in patients.

To attract consumers, beef producers should try a little grass-fed tenderness (Capital Press)

A 2009 taste test conducted by Oregon State University’s Food Innovation Center in Portland shed some light on consumers’ preferences.

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 Aug. 14 through the end of October, five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday.
