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.

Living with traumatic brain injury (Nugget News)

Jenna Sneva comes home from classes at Oregon State University (OSU) to begin “repetition and redundancy” on that day’s classes, two or more hours a day, before she is able to start homework assignments. This is the price she pays from experiencing traumatic brain injury.

What students don’t know about OSU technology (OSU Teaching)

The range of topics in the list indicates that students’ familiarity with OSU computing resources is spotty. Moreover, students’ ability to adapt the technologies they use (from laptop to tablet to smart phone) for academic use is not as muchof a “given” as we sometimes think.

Grant to aid OSU planning (Bend Bulletin)

The Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development recently awarded a grant to the city of Bend to help plan for transportation needs at the new Oregon State University-Cascades Campus, planned for southwest Bend.

Coral ‘white plague’ epidemic could be caused by viruses (Live Science)

White plague is characterized by rapid tissue loss, which exposes the white skeleton of the coral. “White plague is not that difficult to tell apart from other coral diseases,” said Nitzan Soffer, a microbiologist at Oregon State University and lead author of the new study.

Witness the fitness (Bangkok Post)

His enthusiasm is coupled with an academic background in exercise sports science from Oregon State University. Majoring in fitness and nutrition, he chose an internship in Thailand where he has gained hands-on experience at Bangkok Hospital’s Bangkok Academy of Sports & Exercise Medicine (BASEM) and the Sports Authority of Thailand.

Rare fossil of blood-engorged mosquito found in Montana (NBC News)

The discovery also shows that “blood-filled mosquitoes were already feeding at that time, suggesting that they were around much earlier and could have fed on dinosaurs,” said George Poinar, a paleo-entomologist at Oregon State University, who wasn’t involved in the research.

Climate change alters Jefferson Park’s fragile landscape (Register-Guard)

Research conducted by Oregon State University and published in the journal Landscape Ecology says Jefferson Park’s iconic meadows are being invaded by an increasing number of trees.

Stronger earthquakes set to strike Philippines (International Business Times)

Moreover, a study released by marine geologist Chris Goldfinger at Oregon State University in Corvallis indicated that an intensity 9.0 or stronger ‘superquakes’ could happen in faults that haven’t had major quakes for longer period of time.
