Scientist in the middle of the GM-organic wars (Science)

For Carol Mallory-Smith of Oregon State University, the migration of genes in agricultural crops is not just a research topic or a matter of policy debate. It’s the cause of a vexing quarrel among her neighbors: the farmers of Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

Scientists warn of years of aftershocks in Japan (Seattle Times)

“That section of the subduction zone is clearly loaded,” said Chris Goldfinger, an Oregon State University seismologist who was not part of the new research. (See also Washington Post)

Radioactive iodine in city water spurs enhanced testing (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Kathryn Higley, a health physicist at Oregon State University, said the most likely source is a nearby or upstream medical facility that treats cancer patients with Iodine-131, which can enter the water supply when patients go to the bathroom. “That’s the big wrinkle. If you saw it last year, it wasn’t from Japan,” she said. “It’s probably from a hospital.”

Trust gives $2M to OSU project in graduate’s memory (KVAL)

Oregon State University’s College of Education has received a $2 million donation from the Joyce N. Furman Memorial Trust, which will enable the university to complete a major renovation and seismic upgrade to its historic Education Hall.

Study: Rounded furniture promotes feelings of well-being (Hartford Courant)

A study by researchers at Oregon State University, published in the most recent issue of Environment and Behavior suggests that if you want your guests to feel comfortable, go with curvier, rounded furniture for your home.

Civic-minded Beavers head to Salem (Gazette-Times)

John Kitzhaber proclaims April 12, 2011, “Oregon State University Day at the State Capitol.” A contingent from Beaver Nation plans to assemble to meet with legislators, agency leaders and staff members on matters important to OSU.

Human resources sealed with a handshake (Wall Street Journal)

OSU Researchers conducted a study with 140 undergraduates, who played job candidates and interviewers. The candidates had earlier taken a test rating them on the personality traits of extroversion, neuroticism, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness.

OSU’s tree app getting good reviews (Gazette-Times)

Chris LaBelle of the Extension and Experiment Station Communications office said the app has had 300 downloads.

OSU awarded Tree Campus USA (KEZI)

On the OSU campus almost everywhere you look, you see different types of trees.  So it’s not surprising that Oregon State just got the re-certification for its 3rd straight year as Tree Campus USA. (See also Democrat-Herald)
