David Miller, a professor at Penn State University and the lead biometrician in the study, summarized the extent of the effort.
"This study involved a truly comprehensive and collaborative effort to bring together data from researchers across the United States,” Miller said. “We combined nearly half a million actual observations of 84 species across 61 study areas to answer questions about the causes of wide-scale amphibian declines.”

Researchers at Penn State are closing in on the completion of a statewide network that monitors seismic activity.
Expected to be completed this summer, the network, which is a collaboration between Penn State’s Department of Geosciences, the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), will serve the public and government agencies.
The information we will provide about seismic events in Pennsylvania will be especially useful for policymakers at the agencies, said Andrew Nyblade, professor of #geosciences at Penn State. http://ow.ly/Av09300mUUz

It is one of the reasons why MS medications have a fatal flaw. A medication to alleve your MS should not have death as a side effect.

The president’s overtime update will be a net win for most workers, families and the economy, even for our contemporary workplaces, by closing what had essentially become a loophole in the rules. Consider this: in 1975, the overtime threshold covered more than 60% of salaried workers. Today it’s estimated to cover no more than 8%.

May is National Physical Fitness & Sports Month, so what better time to talk about the importance of #concussion baseline testing?
Penn State’s Center for Concussion Research and Service offers baseline testing, which includes four different types of tests: balance, memory, reaction, and an EEG. Read on to learn more!

"More than 3 million Pennsylvanians rely on about 1 million private wells for their drinking water, yet the state is one of only a few that does not mandate minimum well-construction and maintenance standards."
Penn State Extension will provide free #water testing and education for well owners in nine counties. The two projects combined, funded by grants from the Pennsylvania Water Resources Research Center based at Penn State and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will provide free water testing for 380 homes and farms in nine counties: Elk, Erie, Fayette, Forest, Greene, Jefferson, Montour, Northampton and Venango.

Private water supplies in Pennsylvania counties underserved by water-quality educational programs and water testing will be the focus of two new Penn State Extension projects aimed at helping well owners detect and remediate lead and other common contaminants.

Go behind the scenes: Penn State's history of delivering #weather forecasts on television goes back to 1957, and "Weather World" keeps the tradition alive by producing 15-minute reports each weekday for #WPSU (5:30 and 5:45 p.m.) and #PCN (5:45 p.m.). http://ow.ly/pRmR300l5Ld

Penn State’s Advanced Vehicle Team is much like a car company in miniature. In lieu of sales and profits, however, success is instead measured in trophies, teamwork and the experience won from hours of toil and trial and error.

The team’s current mission is to take a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and re-engineer it from a gas-gulping sports car into a fuel-efficient hybrid — without sacrificing a Camaro’s signature performance characteristics. That means the students will be pairing the car’s traditional #engine with an electric motor of their own design.

Penn State’s Advanced Vehicle Team is much like a car company in miniature. Over a four-year period, a student-driven team, from majors as diverse as the University itself, will design, build, refine and market a hybrid-electric vehicle that closely mimics the steps an actual automaker would take to bring a product to market.

“People sending or receiving a #text have four seconds or more that their eyes are off the road,” said Beverly Shirk, pediatric trauma coordinator at Penn State Children’s Hospital. “If you’re traveling 55 miles per hour, that’s the length of a football field. Your reaction time might not allow for you to stop.”

More than 3,100 people were killed in 2014 as a result of distracted driving, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. Although distractions come in many forms, texting is the most dangerous because it takes eyes, hands and minds away from the task at hand.

Great place if you want to do research in gravity: I'm a graduate student in the gravity group and believe that it was a great choice to come here. Beside the excellent research, State College is a nice town (maybe a bit small) and has almost everything one can wish for - due to its size everything is also nearby. The Penn State Campus is really pretty and sometimes I just go to the Aboretum to think about my research.

As a grad student at the Food Science Department I could not be happier. I cannot talk for the maybe hundreds of other departments, but at lease in our dept and as far as I know in the College of Agriculture, most people are happy with their programs. And then we have State College... awesome city to live if you like small cities...

You get what you give. There are a lot of opportunities for those who decide to work for them. Once you get in your major the classes are smaller. Summer classes are always smaller, class sizes can be as small as 8 students. If you need help in a subject, take a summer course.

Big university in a small town, plenty of opportunities and resources for everyone. If you take full advantage and get involved it will certainly be an unforgettable experience. The university gets smaller the more you join clubs and activities and make them your own.

Penn State has a lovely campus to walk around and sightsee. I am a PSU alumni and really enjoyed my time as a Penn State student. I just wish it didn't cost so much.
