Oilseed crop’s waste product yields compounds that protect skin from the sun (Lund Report)

Major therapeutic advancement for diabetics (Controlled Environments)

Easing earthquake mandate for old brick buildings might just delay the inevitable, experts say (Oregonian)

Portland has a stock of 1,600 unreinforced brick buildings in part because it’s suffered few even minor earthquakes over the years, said Christopher Higgins, a structural engineering professor at Oregon State University. California cities, on the other hand, have had numerous smaller quakes that have winnowed those most susceptible to quakes.

Life in a petri dish (The Observer)

Atlas Cider Company to change name after dispute (Bend Bulletin)

Changing the name from Atlas to Avid probably won’t cause too much of a problem for the 5-year-old company, said Amy Watson, Oregon State University-Cascades assistant professor of marketing. The company will keep enough of the visual representation that it won’t affect the brand. There’s not much difference between AT and AV when the product is alphabetized, Watson said.


Book review: Jonathan Katz reviews Moonglow by Michael Chabon. Moonglow unfolds as the deathbed confession of a man the narrator refers to only as “my grandfather.” It is a tale of madness, of war and adventure, of sex and marriage and desire, of existential doubt and model rocketry, of the shining aspirations and demonic underpinnings of American technological accomplishment at midcentury, and, above all, of the destructive impact – and the creative power – of keeping secrets and telling lies. Wednesday, May 9, noon, main meeting room, Corvallis-Benton County Public Library.
