 Report leaves ambiguity about Gill Coliseum namesake’s legacy on race (Gazette-Times)

Those hoping for clear-cut answers about the racial legacy of the namesake of Gill Coliseum may be disappointed by an Oregon State University historical report released by the university Monday. The report, written by OSU professors Marisa Chappell and Dwaine Plaza, seems to give some ammunition to those who would defend longtime OSU men’s basketball coach Amory “Slats” Gill of accusations of racism. But it also leaves enough ambiguity that those who believe rumors Gill was racist (rumors that circulated during his lifetime) are not likely to be convinced otherwise.

Oregon State’s blue pigment could cool your home (KATU)

It was the inspiration for Crayola’s newest crayon, now the blue pigment mistakenly discovered by scientists at Oregon State University is making headlines for another reason. It is also quite good for our environment. Called YinMn Blue, the color is named after the elements which comprise it — Yttrium, Indium and Manganese.

OSU, literacy center make a deal (Democrat-Herald)

Oregon State University officials announced at Monday’s City Council meeting that the university and the literacy center’s board have reached an agreement on a plan that will move the center from the Sunflower House on Southwest Ninth Street to an OSU-owned building on Northwest Jackson Avenue.

OnBoard Dynamics partners with global manufacturer (Bend Bulletin)

OnBoard was founded in order to commercialize self-compressing engine technology developed by Oregon State University-Cascades professor Chris Hagen. That technology is supported by $6 million in federal energy-innovation grants, but Hansen said OnBoard has struggled to attract private investors, who prefer the high rate of return and low expenses they find in the software industry.

Winter-blooming plants help bees overwinter in your yard (LA Times)

“In the early spring, bees are going to need food to get their engines started again,” said Andony Melathopoulos, a bee specialist with Oregon State University Extension Service. “You can’t simply start up your gardening routines (for pollinators) again in the spring. Solitary wild bees, honeybees and hummingbirds are just clinging to life.

Prepare for larger, longer wildfires (Nature)

Children in rural counties face food-insecurities (Natural Resource Report)

Many rural Oregon children living in food-insecure homes aren’t getting enough physical activity, according to an Oregon State University study

When, how to plant bulbs in pots for Spring (Oregonian)

“It’s easy to create a stunning display that bursts into bloom in the spring or early summer,” said Heather Stoven, an Oregon State University Extension horticulturist. “But bulbs don’t have to be in the ground to be effective. A pot works just as well.”
