Not just a boy’s club: Women hook into the fishing industry (Voice of America)

But pull back the lens a little bit and there’s evidence of change. Skamser provided one of many oral histories that formed the basis of a research project on the role of women in the northwestern U.S. commercial fishing industry. Grad student Sarah Calhoun and Professor Flaxen Conway of Oregon State University along with the NOAA Northwest Fisheries Science Center researcher Suzanne Russell in Seattle analyzed the results, which were published in the journal Marine Policy.

Literacy center in limbo (Gazette-Times)

For nearly 12 years the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center has occupied a rare niche in the community. The center, at 128 N.W. Ninth Street on the extreme east end of the Oregon State University campus, offers language classes, citizenship training, tutoring and other cultural and educational programs.

Trouble on Water Lane (Eugene Weekly)

Todd Jarvis, director of the federally designated Institute for Water and Watersheds at Oregon State University, says groundwater problems in the Alpine area are not a new concern. Because of the geology of the area, “it has been known to have low availability for years,” he says. “Water levels will decline when you start to pump.”

Eastern Oregon farmers seek to eradicate tumbleweed (Herald & News)

Research from Oregon State University also shows some tumbleweeds are becoming resistant to glyphosate, forcing farmers to turn to other higher-risk chemicals. If they can eliminate Russian thistle, Rietmann said it would dramatically reduce input costs and ensure farmers can afford no-till practices.

Oregon State University to hold Take Back the Night event (LIFE@OSU)

Oregon State University will hold a march, rally and survivor speak-out on Thursday, April 27, in recognition of “Take Back the Night,” an event held in many locations throughout the world to raise awareness about sexual violence.

OSU shows off new logo as part of rebranding project (KGW)

Oregon State University has unveiled a new logo in an effort to make the school stand out in Oregon and around the world. (see also Gazette-Times)

Oregon State University breaks out historic wildlife photos for spring lecture tour (Oregonian)

Back in William L. Finley’s days, it took more than a slab of metal to take a decent picture of Oregon’s many fauna in their native habitat. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, it took a fair bit more dedication to candidly capture wildlife.

NASA study challenges long-held tsunami formation theory (Phys Org)

To put his theory to the test, Song and researchers from Oregon State University in Corvallis simulated the 2004 Sumatra and 2011 Tohoku earthquakes at the university’s Wave Research Laboratory by using both directly measured and satellite observations as reference. Like the experiments of the 1980s, they mimicked horizontal land displacement in two different tanks by moving a vertical wall in the tank against water, but they used a piston-powered wave maker capable of generating faster speeds. They also better accounted for the ratio of how deep the water is to the amount of horizontal displacement in actual tsunamis.
