Today in the News Media is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of OSU people and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but rather is intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items in the media.

Can you trick your body into burning more fat? (Fox News)

And cycling between a low- and high-carb diet, as many mixed martial artists may do, probably doesn’t help performance either, said Melinda Manore, a biologist and nutrition scientist at Oregon State University who studies how exercise affects nutritional needs.

Trump’s border-wall pledge threatens delicate desert ecosystems (Nature)

Constructing a wall “would be a huge loss”, says Clinton Epps, a wildlife biologist at Oregon State University in Corvallis. “We know how important the natural movement of wildlife is for the persistence of many species.” (See also Huffington PostGizmodo AU)

Fungal Disease Grows Among Douglas Fir Trees On Oregon Coast (OPB)

A new survey finds a growing number of Douglas fir trees in the Oregon Coast Range have been infected over the past decade with the fungal disease known as Swiss needle cast. Researchers with Oregon State University say the epidemic has grown by as much as 30 percent in a single year.

There’s lots brewing at Hops & Brewing Archives at OSU (Register-Guard)

Oregon’s craft brewing industry may not be growing at the gallop it was in the mid-2000s, but Tiah Edmunson-­Morton is riding along with the state’s 206 brewing companies and she’s moving at a brisk and bouncy cantor. In the three years since Edmunson-Morton launched the Oregon Hops & Brewing Archives at Oregon State University, state hops growing increased 60 percent to 7,700 acres and state brewing increased 20 percent to 1.7 million barrels.

Limited pharmacy access linked to hospital readmission (Bend Bulletin)

As a result, Heppner is one of many towns across Oregon with limited access to prescription drugs. A recent analysis from Oregon State University suggests that the lack of pharmacy services may be boosting the rates of hospital readmissions among seniors, at great cost to both patients and the health care system.

OSU-Cascades Gears Up For September Opening (OPB)

Oregon State University’s new four-year campus in Bend is gearing up for a September opening. For several years, OSU-Cascades has been operating out of one building on Central Oregon Community College’s campus. But now, faculty are starting to move into the first soon-to-be-finished academic building.

$40M in play for would-be Oregon Coast energy project (Portland Business Journal)

A team from Oregon State University’s Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center has worked for several years to land the facility, which it plans to site off Newport. Although the OSU effort is considered a frontrunner for the center by many in the industry, it is expected to face competition for the big federal pot of cash from a California group.

Timber Skyscrapers Aren’t Fantasy—Here’s The Research That Proves It (Fast Co Design)

“Every design firm out there is trying to find more sustainable ways to build—it’s a good business practice,” says Benton Johnson, a structural engineer at SOM. Johnson has been working with Oregon State University to develop and test these new mass-timber structural systems, hoping that his research will help mainstream what’s currently an alternative and novel construction methodology.

Worried about radioactive ‘Fukushima’ fish in the US? Don’t be, scientists say (PRI)

Delvan Neville, a Ph.D candidate in Radiation Health Physics at Oregon State University, has analyzed dozens of samples of albacore tuna caught in the Pacific since the meltdown. He says the highest level of radioactive contamination he’s found “is more than 1,000 times lower than the point where the FDA would even think about whether or not they need to let people eat that food.”

Beetles pollinated orchids millions of year ago, fossil evidence shows (Phys.Org)

A new study in American Entomologist by George Poinar, Jr. (Oregon State University) describes beetles found in fossilized amber with orchid pollen in their mouthparts. “My paper points out that beetles may play a more important role in pollinating orchids than originally thought, and that they have been doing so for some 20 million years,” Poinar said.

These 5 Museums Put the Culture in Agriculture (Modern Farmer)

For more than 30 years, the curators of Oregon State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences’ Art About Agriculture program have collected, curated, and shown the works of Pacific Northwest artists through their yearly traveling exhibit. This year, the theme of the tour is Agriculture of the American Landscape, and it will head to four Oregon cities through the summer and fall.

OSU-Cascades adds night classes for 2 undergrad degrees (KTVZ)

Beginning this fall, Oregon State University–Cascades will launch night classes towards degrees in social science, and human development and family sciences.

A Self-Serve Dialysis Machine May Be Coming Home With You (Bloomberg)

Outset was founded as Home Dialysis Plus in 2003 with technology licensed from HP and Oregon State University and developed by co-founder Michael Baker.

Raspberries: Berry Good for Your Heart, Blood Sugar, and Bones (Newsmax Health)

Researchers at Oregon State University studied the effects of the antioxidant compounds ellagic acid and quercetin found in raspberries on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). It is characterized by fat accumulated in the liver, and can be the forerunner of more serious conditions, such as cirrhosis and liver cancer.

U.S. Hydropower Grows By Going Small (Circle of Blue)

The environmental consequences of the new hydropower model are not so easily catalogued either, according to multiple engineers and ecologists interviewed by Circle of Blue. Adding a turbine to an existing lock is certainly less destructive than walling off a fresh stream. But a full accounting requires knowledge of changes in reservoir releases and the fish species in the river, according to Desiree Tullos, a water resources engineer at Oregon State University. Different fish species will respond differently to the pressures exerted by turbine outlets.

UAVs take flight at first Ag Drone Rodeo (Capital Press)

Don Wysocki, a soil scientist with the Umatilla County Oregon State University Extension Service, concurred with Thorne. He said he saw drone operators leasing out UAS services to farmers rather than growers buying drones of their own.

Traffic and Maintenance

35th Street closure: A four-week closure is planned for 35th Street this summer between Sagebrush Drive (the entrance to The Retreat) and Washington Way. While the exact dates are yet to be determined, Public Works expects the closure period to begin in late July or early August. Signs will be placed on 35th Street one week ahead of the planned closure to alert regular users of the pending traffic change. This closure will help facilitate the reconstruction of the 35th Street approaches to the railroad tracks. This project will complete improvements to the crossing which began in January 2016. Detour routes will be established along 30th Street, Jefferson Way, and Western Boulevard during this period. After the initial 4 weeks, closures will continue during construction hours, with the street being reopened to traffic on nights and weekends. Construction is expected to be complete in September 2016.

29th Street: Construction on NW 29th Street will mean periodic street closures between Tyler and Grant Avenues starting on June 20. The project, which will replace aging sanitary sewer lines and mains, is already underway, but closures will be required from about 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily as the project proceeds this month. Up to two blocks will be closed at any given time for roughly three weeks per section as the project move north on 29th Street. Corvallis Transit System (CTS) will alter bus routes around the construction site.

Washington Way: The city will be reconstructing the railroad crossing at 35th Street and Washington Way this summer. During the reconstruction of the railroad at-grade crossing, road and rail work are to take place, which will result in sidewalk and roadway closures of 35th Street July 25- Aug. 26. Additional information on closure details and duration will be shared as information is received from the city. For questions or additional information, contact Nathan Patterson.

Hwy 20 Eddyville project update: Travelers between Newport and Corvallis should expect some brief delays to let trucks on and off of the highway at both ends of the project on U.S. 20. Ten-hour nighttime complete closures are planned to occur from Aug. 14 through the end of October, five nights a week, Sunday through Thursday. These are necessary because the drilling, blasting, and earthwork operations are above and alongside the highway and the contractor needs enough room and time to do this safely. These are currently scheduled to occur from 7:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., but that time may be adjusted, depending on construction safety needs. The current plan is for the road to be completely open on Friday and Saturday nights.
