Today in the News Media

Severe wildfires bring a welcome landscape for native bees (OPB)

About 100 yards down a steep shrubby slope, there’s a low post supporting a green and blue plastic jug. It’s straight out of a psychedelic Tupperware party. “This is a blue vein trap,” says Sydney Watkins, an Oregon State University field technician.

The 6 coolest material breakthroughs for 2017 (Co Design)

Discovering a new color is rare and difficult–but the newest blue pigment in 200 years was found by accident. In 2009, the chemist and Oregon State University professor Mas Subramanian was concocting new combinations of chemicals with the idea of creating a new material for use in electronics. To his surprise, he stumbled upon a brand new brilliant shade of blue. And this year, Crayola decided to turn it into a new crayon color under the crowd-sourced moniker Bluetiful–which hit store shelves just in time for the holiday season.

OSU awarded $673,000 to research ocean acidification (Seafood News)

Oregon State University has just been awarded $673,000 to study the effects of ocean acidification (OA) on the region’s shellfish industry. OSU is one of three universities to receive two-year grants through NOAA’s Ocean Acidification Regional Vulnerability Assessment Competition.

What is ‘water memory’? Why this homeopathy claim doesn’t hold water (LiveScience)

But May Nyman, a chemistry professor at Oregon State University, told Live Science that the whole idea of “water memory” doesn’t make sense. “I don’t believe in water memory, because water molecules move. They’re constantly rotating with respect to each other, forming hydrogen bonds, breaking hydrogen bonds,” Nyman said. In other words, there’s no structure in a solution of liquid water permanent enough to account for any long-term memory, she said.

From the Margins to the Center (Terra)

Artists, scholars, philosophers and social scientists at Oregon State bring the human element into the Earth sciences, engineering and biomedical fields.

New STEM hub forms (Democrat-Herald)

The new hub is a partnership between LBCC and Oregon State University, the Linn Benton Lincoln Educational Service District, all the K-12 school districts in Linn and Benton counties, and industry and community partners such as the Albany Chamber of Commerce’s Pipeline Program and the Boys and Girls Clubs.

It’s nice to see something that’s so unexpected. And then there’s the scent; such an enjoyable thing.”

NEW! Monthly Emergency Preparedness Topic – Evacuation: Emergency Evacuation is the immediate and urgent movement of people away from the threat or actual occurrence of a hazard.  Evacuations are more common than many people realize.

In addition, hundreds of times a year, transportation and industrial accidents release harmful substances, forcing many people to leave their homes.  Download the attached poster for reference and sharing with others.  http://emergency.oregonstate.edu/files/EP-Bulletin/01-01%20Evacuation.pdf
