Temperatures to keep rising in Pacific Northwest, new climate models confirm (Gephardt Daily)

Passion for sage-grouse conservation lands OSU student a scholarship (LIFE@OSU)

When it came time to pick a doctoral program, Andrew Olsen admits he was very choosy. He wanted to study bird conservation, and Oregon State University has been a longtime partner in the Sage Grouse Initiative, which covers 11 western states and targets 78 million acres of intact sagebrush harboring the highest number of birds.

Midwifery linked to better birth outcomes in state-by-state report cards (Science Daily)

“Our findings suggest that in states where families have greater access to midwifery care that is well integrated into the maternity system, mothers and babies tend to experience improved outcomes. The converse was also demonstrated; where integration of midwives is poorer, so are outcomes,” said Melissa Cheyney, a licensed midwife, medical anthropologist and associate professor in Oregon State University’s College of Liberal Arts and one of the study’s co-authors.

6 pets that are kid-friendly, and super cute too (Romper)

Dr. Sue Doescher, a psychologist at Oregon State University, told The New York Times that pets can make children more cooperative and teach them how to share. She explained, ”Having a pet improves children’s role-taking skills because they have to put themselves in the pet’s position and try to feel how the pet feels. And that transfers to how other kids feel.” Teaching your little ones compassion sounds like a darn good reason to bring a pet into the mix.
