Today in the News Media

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.

OSU names chief startup officer of Venture Accelerator (Portland Business Journal)

Oregon State University is bringing in a veteran business development leader from California to help lead its new incubator program, the OSU Venture Accelerator. (see also Gazette-Times, Toronto Telegraph)

Arsenic in beer may come from widely used filtering process (NPR)

It turns out that any beer or wine that’s clear has been filtered to strain out plant matter, yeast, and anything else that would leave a drink looking unappealingly cloudy. ”It’s really there for aesthetics,” says Tom Shellhammer, a professor of fermentation science at Oregon State University. “People in general will make positive quality associations with clearer beverages.”

What do birds do for us? (Audubon Magazine)

And at Oregon State University, researchers use microphones to mechanically monitor bird songs in the western Cascade Mountains during (and before) the breeding season. “The minute the bird arrives from its wintering grounds, you know when it showed up,” says Matt Betts, an associate professor of landscape ecology.

Filmmaker documents experience of OSU students (Gazette-Times)

It’s early on a Wednesday morning, and Justin Smith is packing up video gear for a trip to the Oregon State University Cascades campus in Bend for a video shoot there. It’s all part of Smith’s busy schedule as multimedia production manager for OSU, a job which finds him tackling video production duties on behalf of the university – and sometimes takes him to locations more far-flung than even Bend.

Gary Payton, former Oregon State star, elected to basketball hall of fame (Oregonian)

As expected, former Oregon State star Gary Payton is among seven people elected to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. (see also KGW)

All aboard the solar bus to Ghana (LIFE@OSU)

Carly Lettero has been around the world, and traveling is something she views as one of her skills. Exploring the world has made her compassionate in the face of inequalities she’s witnessed, and has compelled her to make a difference.

Technology puts nuclear waste to good use (KVAL)

A researcher at Oregon State University has invented a way to use spent nuclear fuel to produce the gamma rays needed to irradiate medical supplies, food and other products – an advance that could change what is now a costly waste disposal concern into a valued commodity. (see also Nuclear Street)

University boards’ makeup stalls talks (Register-Guard)

Should university faculty and other staff have any seats on the independent governing boards proposed for the University of Oregon, Portland State University and potentially Oregon State University? The University of Oregon Foundation, the UO’s nonprofit fundraising arm, has so far resisted proposals that would give designated voting seats to faculty and classified staff, according to lawmakers who are attempting to craft the independent-boards bill.

Watershed writing studio (Oregonian)

A tiny writing studio in Oregon’s Willamette Valley was intended to show off the ecological complexity of its site along the Marys River. It was designed for well-known nature writer Kathleen Dean Moore by her daughter Erin Moore, whose firm, FLOAT, engages in projects at the intersection of ecology and architecture.

Oregon university uses RTLS to ensure disabled students get accessible classroom furniture (RFID Journal)

When specialized furniture for disabled students is assigned a classroom location at Oregon State University, a real-time location system (RTLS) lets the school’s Disability Access Services (DAS) department automatically know where those items are located, and when they have been moved.

Recession’s effects highlight economic differences between Linn, Benton counties (Oregonian)

As the Great Recession took hold, more than 2,000 jobs disappeared from Benton County, while more than 5,000 went away in Linn. But on the strength of hiring at Oregon State University and two medical organizations, Benton County returned to its prerecession employment levels last fall, the Albany Democrat-Herald reports. (see also OPB, KMTR)

Another revenue stream (AgInfo)

When you see a vineyard you see wine. But now USDA researchers are finding ways to turn the pulp, seed, and stem from crushed wine grapes into value added products. Yanyun Zhao of Oregon State University Extension explains.
