Oregon State University: 150 years as Oregon’s land-grant institution (OPB)

Whether you realize it or not, you have used technology and products that came from Oregon State University. It was OSU alumni who invented the computer mouse, wrinkle-free cotton and standard dental equipment. Faculty developed the modern maraschino cherry and marionberry. Its Extension Service operates Outdoor School for over 30,000 Oregon fifth- and sixth-graders each year, along with 4H programs in every county in the state. Experiment Station scientists have developed high-yield wheat products used worldwide.

Meal delivery a late-night hit at Oregon State (Food Management)

Delivery services are a fast-growing phenomenon in a variety of onsite environments, but especially in colleges with large residential populations that represent a ready and willing market. One of the most successful such programs is Food2You at Oregon State University (OSU), which has now been in place for almost three years and generates up to 300 transactions a night.

Royal wedding betrays less-than-classy side of an American bride’s family (Philly.com)

No less a British intellect than George Orwell, who penned Animal Farm in 1945, wrote disparagingly about how the lower classes smell and how the upper classes are disgusted by the working class. “That’s been going on for a long time,” said sociologist Allison Hurst, an expert on class from Oregon State University.

OSU-designed wristbands detect environmental pollutants (KTVZ)

Chemical-sampling wristbands made of silicone are already known as an easy-to-use method of measuring a person’s exposure to environmental pollutants. Invented at Oregon State University, the colorful wristbands absorb chemicals from the air and skin.

National Park Service publishes climate change report, but questions remain about censorship (KRCC)

“This is not an isolated incident,” says Spinrad, who was the chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration under Obama. Now, he’s a professor of oceanography at Oregon State University. “There’s been an ongoing assault on the scientific validation for climate change.”

Students to tour all things forestry at Douglas County school forestry tour (News Register)

In 1961, the Douglas County Lands Department and the Douglas County Oregon State University Extension Service started the event, which is now the oldest natural resources education program in the county, according to Alicia Christiansen, forestry and natural resources extension agent.

How to grow dahlias in Oregon: Advice from 34 years of experience (Oregonian)

In the garden of Laura and Mark Oldenkamp 400 dahlias bob with blooms as small as golf balls and as large a dinner plates. “We love how diverse they are,” said Laura Oldenkamp, an Oregon State University Extension Service master gardener. “There’s an enormous variation in color, form and size. It’s really astounding.”

Hungry birds: Food a concern for brown pelicans (Daily Astorian)

Researchers with Oregon State University study the tern colony that nests on East Sand Island. They spend some time monitoring the pelicans, too, but Jaques believes more monitoring is necessary to understand how the pelicans use the area, what they eat and what pressures they face during the time they spend here.
