Oregon could go its own way on revised federal health law (Bend Bulletin)

Republicans can’t undo the ACA provision that requires coverage for pre-existing conditions, but allowing insurers to charge more could have the same result if the coverage becomes unaffordable, said Jeff Luck, associate professor of health management and policy at Oregon State University.

Commentary by Jared A. Moore, Mary Ellen Phillips associate professor of accounting and PhD program director in the College of Business at Oregon State University.

Freres said Oregon State University, with which the company worked in developing its Mass Plywood Panel, furnished a round-table of contacts for prospective projects. Robinson and Lever Architecture was among those, and the architect’s familiarity with the Freres product led to the match with the Yeon exhibit.

Increased flows from lake expected for Klamath River (Herald & News)

Karuk Tribe and Oregon State University researchers take samples from four different sites along the Klamath River on a weekly basis to determine the number of parasites per liter, according to Bottcher.

Meet the Harrington Seed Destroyer (UnDark)

But mixes of old chemicals won’t necessarily help, says Carol Mallory-Smith, a weed scientist at Oregon State University. In some cases, the chemicals already face significant resistance — 2,4-D, for example, is an auxin, the chemical class that sparked the first herbicide-resistant weeds six decades ago.
