Oregon obesity rates highest in the West (Oregonian)

“When you think about Bend, you think about easy access to all sorts of healthy activities and a great community to live in with shared values for a particular way of life,” said Deborah John, an associate professor with Oregon State University’s Hallie Ford Center for Healthy Children and Families. “Yet that’s only a certain subset of people who live in Bend.”

There is now a sixth taste – and it explains why we love carbs (New Scientist)

It has long been thought that our tongues register a small number of primary tastes: salty, sweet, sour and bitter. Umami – the savoury taste often associated with monosodium glutamate – was added to this list seven years ago, but there’s been no change since then. However, this list misses a major component of our diets, says Juyun Lim at Oregon State University in Corvallis. “Every culture has a major source of complex carbohydrate. The idea that we can’t taste what we’re eating doesn’t make sense,” she says. (see also Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post UK, Telegraph)

Owl Wars (bioGraphic)

“These are absolutely tragic decisions—one way or another, there’s tragedy involved,” says Michael Paul Nelson, an environmental ethicist at Oregon State University in Corvallis who was not involved in the meetings but has watched the issue develop. “It’s not clear that people who have to make these tough decisions are trained or capable of doing it, and that’s putting them in a weird position.”

Montana offers job training for people affected by Yellowstone closure (Public News Service)

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks found at least 4,000 whitefish dead from the parasite this month, and suspect the microbe has killed at least 20,000. Officials are worried the parasite could infect rainbow and cutthroat trout, critical species to recreation fishing in the region, if the fish are stressed by activity on the river.  Michael Kent, professor of microbiology and biomedical sciences at Oregon State University, said lowering stress is key to their recovery.

Watch SOM test its latest in timber tower technology (Architects Newspaper)

Working with Oregon State University (OSU), Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has been busy testing its design for a timber tower. The time-lapse video below shows a section of the wood tower being submitted to 82,000 pounds of pressure.

Are we overdoing the embrace of delayed retirement? (Time)

These physical and emotional health issues may even shorten life. Researchers from Oregon State University found that healthy adults who retired past age 65 had an 11% lower risk of death from all causes. And of course there are plenty of money issues. Individuals are vastly under-saved for 20 or more years of retirement without work of some kind.

The work was reported today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by physicists from Oregon State University and Purdue University, done with support from the National Science Foundation and the Simons Foundation.

Industrial hemp industry gets kick start from oil extract (Oregonian)

This year, Oregon State University set aside land to study the crop, hoping scientists could begin to answer questions like the best time to plant and which weeds and pests might pose a problem. Months later, those five acres in Benton County sit empty.

Oregon State Fair wraps up on a crowd-filled day (Statesman Journal)

Roberta Lundeberg, a program coordinator with Oregon State University, and Lynette Black, the family consumer science and expressive coordinator with Oregon 4-H, both supervised many of the displays.

Study abroad broadens minds, offers rare experiences (Bend Bulletin)

There are opportunities available for students to study all over the world, from Thailand to the Palestinian territories to Rwanda. Oregon State University offers study abroad programs that take students to Antarctica or sailing around Africa and Asia.

Why the degrowth debate is gaining momentum (The Ecologist)

Barbara Muraca, Assistant Professor for Environmental and Social Philosophy at Oregon State University told us in a packed plenary session: “More democracy doesn’t mean more referenda. Economic democracy is democratic participation in shaping the modes of production and consumption.”

Now open: Bravura Cellars (Oregon Wine Press)

While they had decided on a name, the visual identity had yet to be realized, so Saxton and Serrato enlisted the help of budding designers at his alma mater, Oregon State University, and its School of Business graphic design department. The contest asked students to design a logo reflecting hot-climate, hand-crafted, full-bodied, robust and ultra-premium red wines. Since their business model differs from most local wineries, they wanted imagery that conveyed “coloring outside the lines.”

OSU develops open-source tool to assess run-of-river resource potential (Power Magazine)

Swiss needle cast disease intensifies among Douglas-fir forests in Oregon coast range (Tillamook Count Pioneer)

Results from aerial analyses in 2015 indicate a slight expansion – 0.6 percent – in the affected area over 2014. However, the disease remains the most significant threat to Douglas-fir plantations in western Oregon, said David Shaw, Oregon State University forest health specialist in the College of Forestry.
