    What grows quickly, is packed with protein, has twice the nutritional value of kale and tastes like bacon? The answer, according to scientists at Oregon State University, is a new strain of seaweed they recently patented. Dulse is a form of edible seaweed that grows wild along the Pacific and Atlantic coastlines. It’s harvested and commonly used by people in dried form as a cooking ingredient or nutritional supplement. But OSU researchers say the variety they’ve developed can be farmed and eaten fresh, with the potential for a new industry for Oregon. …

Kosta Karageorge, a fifth-year senior, had missed practice Wednesday and hadn't been seen since. Sgt.

His body was found inside a Dumpster and identified at the scene through tattoos, Weiner said. A handgun was also recovered at the scene. It was not immediately clear how long the body had been in the Dumpster, Weiner said. An investigation is ongoing.

    At Ohio State University, to avoid being guilty of “sexual assault” or “sexual violence,” you and your partner now apparently have to agree on the reason WHY you are making out or having sex. It’s not enough to agree to DO it, you have to agree on WHY: there has to be agreement “regarding the who, what, where, when, why, and how this sexual activity will take place.”There used to be a joke that women need a reason to have sex, while men only need a place. Does this policy reflect that juvenile mindset? Such a requirement baffles some women...

    African Ice Core Analysis Reveals Catastrophic Droughts, Shrinking Ice Fields, Civilization Shifts COLUMBUS, Ohio – A detailed analysis of six cores retrieved from the rapidly shrinking ice fields atop Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro shows that those tropical glaciers began to form about 11,700 years ago. The cores also yielded remarkable evidence of three catastrophic droughts that plagued the tropics 8,300, 5,200 and 4,000 years ago. Lastly, the analysis also supports Ohio State University researchers' prediction that these unique bodies of ice will disappear in the next two decades, the victims of global warming.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Ohio State will vacate their 12 win 2010 season along with a victory in the Sugar Bowl as part of self-imposed punishment for NCAA rules violations. The recommendations also include a two-year probation that would not cost the Buckeyes any scholarships or ban them from post-season play. Ohio State is asking the NCAA to go easy on it because it says former-coach Jim Tressel was the only official that knew of infractions. The university also announced it has reached an agreement with Tressel to change his resignation to a retirement. In a release Ohio State said...

After the drubbing of November 2010, Obama's handlers have come to understand that Obama does best when, like Chauncey, he says nothing at all.

    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH ^ | Friday, March 28, 2008 | Kathy Lynn Gray
    Bowing to pressure from students, Ohio State University has decided to green up its paper supply. Beginning July 1, the university will buy only recycled copy paper, saving an estimated 8,000 trees and keeping 382,000 pounds of waste out of landfills annually, according to the business office. OSU uses nearly a half-million reams of paper each year, and only 35,000 had been recycled paper, said Helen DeSantis, assistant vice president for business operations. The decision is a victory for Free the Planet, a campus group dedicated to improving the environment. Its members demonstrated on campus early last year and asked...

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- The state House agreed Thursday to allow people with specialized firearms training, such as military personnel, to carry concealed weapons on the state's college campuses, despite opponents who said it made no sense following shootings at schools across the country. The measure was approved 65-36, and now heads to the state Senate for a vote. Introduced by Rep. Jason Murphey, R-Guthrie, the law would authorize active-duty military and National Guard and reserve personnel, honorably discharged veterans and others with firearms training certified by the Council on Law Enforcement Education who hold a state concealed weapons license to...

    A former Ohio State University librarian accused of sexual harassment after recommending a conservative book for freshmen has filed a lawsuit against the university and some of its faculty. Scott Savage, who said he resigned because of personal and professional attacks on his character, asks for his job back and for OSU to be forced to change its sexual-harassment policies. OSU is "an aggressive proponent of the homosexual lifestyle by virtue of its practices and policies," Savage says in the lawsuit, filed in federal court because he says his civil rights were violated. "OSU is therefore a naturally hostile environment...

    What is an auditorium half-full of moonbats like? Well first of all it doesn't smell very good, second, it's very loud, third, it has a back-up supply of policemen at the ready for the inevitable task of evicting the hecklers, and fourth, it really makes you wish you had a taser with you. Alberto Gonzales spoke at Ohio State this evening. I went to his lecture, forgetting that this is not a normal environmnt, it's a college campus, and was reminded of that fact by the shouting loons as Gonzales walked on stage. Most people clapped, but there was a...

    NEW ORLEANS -- With the 2007 football season complete, here's the game plan for 2008: Jim Tressel's Ohio State team has lost back-to-back games for the BCS national championship. We need border patrols along Interstate 10, from Jacksonville to Pensacola. A Coast Guard blockade at Biscayne Bay. And the FAA should redirect all inbound flights to South Florida from Ohio. If you see a silver helmet and a sweater vest coming, contact authorities. Because next year's BCS National Championship Game will be played in Miami, and the Ohio State Buckeyes aren't invited. Especially if the Southeastern Conference champion is invited....

    Well, in a few hours, a few LSU folks will recall with dread the name Greg Frey. Yep, the Buckeye quarterback no one remembers but die-hard Buckeye and LSU fans. The quarterback who led the team to one of the most spectacular comebacks ever witnessed at Ohio Stadium. As Wikipedia puts it: On September 24, 1988, he rallied Ohio State from a 33-20 deficit in the final four minutes for a 36-33 victory over the ninth-ranked LSU Tigers. I was at that game in the shoe, urging all the fans who were leaving early to stay put. It was gratifying...

    Les Miles didn’t need to go to Michigan for a chance to coach a team to victory against Ohio State, Michigan’s archrival. The LSU Tigers, to whom Miles reaffirmed his commitment over the weekend, will play Ohio State for the BCS national championship. LSU (11-2) climbed five spots Sunday to No. 2 in the USA Today Top 25 Coaches’ Poll, enabling the Tigers to make the same jump in the BCS standings to set up a Jan. 7 date with the No. 1-ranked Buckeyes (11-1) in the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. “This is the most astonishing 36 or 48...

    Top-ranked Ohio State's national title hopes teetered on a timeout, the ball inches from a first down for Illinois. Illini coach Ron Zook changed his mind, decided to go for it on fourth down and that was the beginning of the end for the Buckeyes' hopes of redeeming themselves in this season's national championship game. It was the first time Illinois (8-3, 5-2 Big Ten) had beaten a No. 1 since 1956, and the first time it had done it away from home. The defeat also ended a conference and school streak of 20 Big Ten wins in a row...

    Williams leads Illini to upset of No. 1 Ohio StateBy RUSTY MILLER, AP Sports Writer November 10, 2007 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- In this season of upsets, top-ranked Ohio State was the latest to fall. Juice Williams provided the big plays on the ground and through the air, spurring Illinois to a stunning 28-21 victory on Saturday night and throwing open the national title race. It was the first time Illinois (8-3, 5-2 Big Ten) had ever beaten a No. 1, losing all 17 previous games. The defeat also ended a record streak of 20 Big Ten wins in a...
