New population of genetically distinct blue whales discovered in New Zealand (The Independent)

We just took a massive step towards growing human limbs in the lab (Silicon Republic)

So, it is welcome news that a team of researchers from Oregon State University has combined developmental biology, genetics and bioinformatics to find the key to creating human organs in the lab.

Why are AI researchers boycotting a new Nature journal  and shunning others? (Science)

The purpose of the boycott is “to lower the barriers to research progress” for resource-strapped scientists, says Thomas Dietterich, a computer scientist at Oregon State University in Corvallis, who began the boycott last month. The field is moving too fast for traditional publishing, and AI’s potential for both great benefit and great harm requires openness, he says. “Locking up our research papers behind a paywall would make public scrutiny more difficult.”

Is homegrown food safer? Only if gardeners take precautions (Washington Post)

“The odds are better there won’t be any contamination from the things we grow ourselves, but no fresh foods are safe,” said Jeanne Brandt, a family and community health specialist with Oregon State University Extension. “Gardening and cooking are a food safety continuum. Safety must be considered with every step in the process, from pre-planting to placing meals on the table.”

Detecting histamine in your fish  chromatography investigates (Chromatography Today)

In the United States it is estimated that almost 40 percent of seafood-related food illnesses are due to excessive levels of histamine in the flesh of the fish. But now, research supported by Oregon State University have come up with a potentially simple and cheap method of detecting histamine levels in fish.

OSU resource center helps students in need (Gazette-Times)

Johannah Hamilton, 26, grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. She picked up a degree from the University of Kentucky in agricultural economics with minors in business and Spanish and added a master’s in agricultural economics from Auburn in Alabama. Then she was recruited to enter a four-year doctoral program in public policy at Oregon State University.

Flax: What is old is new again (Capital Press)

Headed by farmer Angela Wartes-Kahl and textile designer and nonprofit leader Shannon Welsh, Fibrevolution is a new company allied with Fibershed, a nonprofit that supports local fiber production. Wartes-Kahl and Welsh have partnered with Oregon State University and Ralph Fisher of Fisher Farms in Sublimity, Ore., to explore the idea of reviving Oregon fiber flax, with the ultimate goal of establishing a regional long line flax processing center and positioning Oregon as a new center for sustainable textiles.

The untapped voting power of single women (American Prospect)

Past studies have consistently shown that married women, unlike their unmarried counterparts, are more likely to vote for conservative candidates. According to recent research by Christopher T. Stout and Kelsy Kretschmer, assistant professors at Oregon State University, and Leah Ruppanner, a senior lecturer at the University of Melbourne, marriage and its accompanying life changes may alter a woman’s worldview.

The face under the costume: OSU professor shares cosplay photos (Gazette-Times)

It was a logical suggestion: Because one of the classes Randall L. Milstein teaches at Oregon State examines the science behind science fiction, his students thought he should attend a Comic-Con convention, one of the fan-based events that celebrates science fiction and fantasy. It made sense for another reason: Milstein, a physics instructor and astronomer-in-residence with the Oregon NASA Space Grant Consortium, also is a professional photographer.

Mahler on a grand scale: OSU-Corvallis orchestra takes on third symphony (Democrat-Herald)
