Alaskan grizzly bears choose berries over salmon – thanks to climate change, study finds (Miami Herald)

“What you have is a scrambling of the schedule,” said William Deacy, a biologist at Oregon State University that studied the phenomenon, according to the Telegraph. “It’s essentially like if breakfast and lunch were served at same time and then there is nothing to eat until dinner.” (see also CTVThe IndependentKTUU)

Self-identifying as disabled and developing pride in disability aid overall well being (Med Xpress)

Experiencing stigma, the severity of a disability and a person’s age and income level help determine whether someone with an impairment considers themselves to be a person with a disability, and experiencing stigma predicts whether those individuals will ultimately develop disability pride, new research from Oregon State University shows.

USA’s largest estuary facing increasing acidification risk (Science Daily)

Oysters and other bivalves provide a built-in Tums effect that naturally helps the bay deal with corrosive water,” said George Waldbusser, an Oregon State University marine ecologist and co-author on the study. “They generate large amounts of calcium carbonate structures, which may be able to buffer the increasing amounts of carbon dioxide entering the bay.

Despite historically wet winter, Oregon headed toward drought (OPB)

“It’s pretty clear that something is going on that we are changing our climate,” said Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University. “We’re seeing climate change impacts already and we need to think about resiliency toward these 100-degree days.”

It’s not just your imagination – Oregon summers are getting hotter (Oregonian)

According to a January 2017 report by Oregon State University’s Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, since 1895 Oregon’s temperature has warmed by a little more than 2 degrees. Much of that warming has occurred in recent decades, with warming trends since the 1970s larger than those over the past century, the report said.

Urban Farm program about to have new crop of students (Gazette-Times)

Taylor said the students in the program also went on dozens of field trips, to local agriculture businesses and Oregon State University’s urban farm and OSU Extension sites. OSU’s soil science program and extension also have helped provide expert help to the students as they developed the farm, she said.

Building name process to be undertaken this fall (LIFE@OSU)

Over the past two years, a number of OSU community members have raised concerns regarding several buildings whose namesakes may have held or espoused views that were exclusionary or inconsistent with the university’s values. These buildings are Avery Lodge, Arnold Dining Center, Benton Hall and Gill Coliseum. (see also US News, Gazette-Times, Register-Guard)

‘Just want to cry with relief': Families, stranded hikers reunited (KGW)

“Gut wrenching. my stomach is going in circles,” said Jennifer Padia, whose daughter Renee, a junior at Oregon State University, had gone hiking with friends around 3 p.m. Saturday. “I’ve just been pacing and not knowing. I wish they could tell us who’s up there.”

All unhappy microbiomes are unhappy in their own way (Science 360)

OSU scientists found patterns consistent with the new paradigm effects in a range of systems, from corals exposed to above-average temperatures to the lungs of smokers to patients suffering from HIV/AIDS.

OSU study finds increase in bee diversity after fire (Corvallis Advocate)

While forest fires are often very destructive for humans, as the hundreds evacuated from Sisters in mid-August learned firsthand, they can have a positive impact on other earthlings. A new study at Oregon State University suggests that wildfires help Oregon’s wild bees. 

Elena Passarello examines our relationships with animals (Bend Bulletin)

Those are not the kind of essays Oregon State University creative writing professor, actress and author Elena Passarello is writing. Her witty 2012 essay collection, “Let Me Clear My Throat,” explored what made popular voices and phrases resonate with audiences — from an 18th century opera singer to Marlon Brando’s “Stellaaaaaaaa!”

Corvallis artists create ‘Logcabin Medley’ at the Arts Center (Gazette-Times)

Clay Lohmann had enough sewn quilt material to cover every wall of The Arts Center in Corvallis for his featured exhibit there, but he wanted to do something different. So the fiber artist invited his wife, Julie Green, and her colleagues Anna Fidler and Kerry Skarbakka to join him. They are faculty members in the School of Arts and Communication at Oregon State University.

Draining Oregon (Oregonian)

Todd Jarvis, a watersheds professor at Oregon State University, supports place-based studies because it frees counties from relying on the brainpower in Salem. “It’s just a beginning, but you have to start somewhere,” he said.

We have a revolutionary new blue, thanks to OSU (Register-Guard)

“The first new blue since 1802.” You might assume the poetic staccato of such a phrase was crafted by an English major or public relations professional. Nope. Those words came from Mas Subramanian, a chemist and Oregon State University professor, describing a discovery he and his student made in 2009.

What’s trending in undergrad degrees (Oregon Business)

Oregon State University’s College of Business has also introduced a new major in Hospitality Management at its Cascades campus in Bend.
