A new shade of blue (Harper’s Bazaar)

An accidental discovery in 2009 in the Oregon State University lab has yielded the newest blue – a hue that, despite being the first man-made pigment (Egyptian blue), has not seen any additions in over 200 years (the last was Cobalt blue). Given the temporary name YInMn, the cerulean-like pigment will be soon be available for public consumption in the form of a new Crayola colour, and likely later on in the form of additional materials such as paint due to its compound resistance to water and oil.

Oregon State baseball selection snub ‘rectified’ as Beavers earn NCAA tournament No. 1 seed (Oregonian)

Robots copy their coolest moves from animals (Recode)

Earlier this year, a team from Oregon State University shared a video of Cassie, their bipedal robot that imitates the gait of an ostrich. Looking to the flightless bird for inspiration, the researchers created a robot that doesn’t topple over as easily as bipedal robots that walk more like humans do.

“It’s an intimidation tactic. There are self-preservation strategies and intimidation is one of the main ones,” said Frank Bernieri, an associate professor in the psychology department at Oregon State University, who has written on the influence of the handshake. “This is perfectly consistent with Trump. He pretty much says that’s what I do to make a deal.”

According to the news release from the Oregon State University, the research is a part of International Ocean Discovery Program, an international marine research collaboration to study the sediment of the Indian Ocean.

BioBlitz at Avery Park (Democrat-Herald)

But on a smaller scale, the park was full of drama, said Ben Phalan, a researcher with Oregon State University’s College of Forestry: some organisms were trying to eat each other, or using camouflage to hide from each other, or even engaging in chemical warfare to keep from being eaten and displaying vivid markers to warn other species they are not good prey.
