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 breakthrough in cancer research (KEZI)

“When you walk outside – 15 seconds of UV exposure – you start to develop mutations in your genes,” said Mark Leid, the Associate Dean for Research in the OSU College of Pharmacy. “Fifteen seconds. We don’t see the sun all that much, but when we do, we run outside and don’t slather on the sunscreen. So rates of melanoma, which is directly related to UV exposure, are high in Oregon.” (see also Portland Business Journal, Science Daily, R&D Magazine)

New OSU study reveals breed and hunting instincts can shape behavior (Oregonian)

Researchers at Oregon State University recently published a study that found a dog’s breed can influence how well it responds to human commands. (see also Ag Info)

Corvallis City Council approves changes for OSU’s private streets (Gazette-Times)

The Corvallis City Council unanimously approved a Land Development Code update Monday night that will give Oregon State University the right to establish its own standards for private streets on campus. OSU presented its plan to the council at its Jan. 21 meeting, but a request to hold the record open forced the council to wait until Monday to deliberate and vote.

US West Coast on high alert against tsunami-washed Japanese invasive species (ACQ5) 

“The answer is ‘yes,’ there is a real threat,” John Chapman of the Oregon State University’s Marine Bioinvasion Lab told RT in an interview, noting that well over 150 marine species have arrived on the coast over the last year. “These [creatures] have the potential to invade local habitats.”

Freshman 15? Some college students are worried about going hungry (Health) 

Nearly six in 10 students at an Oregon university could not afford to get enough healthy food at one point in the school year, a problem that threatens their school performance as well as their physical and emotional health, researchers say.  “Based on other research that’s been done, we expected some amount of food concerns among college students,” Daniel Lopez-Cevallos, associate director of research at Oregon State University’s Center for Latino/Latina Studies and Engagement, said in a university news release. “But it was shocking to find food insecurity of this severity.”

Study: Home births safe for low-risk women (CBS News)

“Given our findings, especially in light of other observational studies published in the last decade, I think it’s time to start shifting the discourse around home birth in this country,” Melissa Cheyney, a medical anthropologist at Oregon State University and lead author on the study, said in a press release. (see also Mothering.com)

Researchers search for better biters (Register-Guard)

Can we produce fish more prone to be caught by hook and line? If hatchery steelhead can be genetically bred to bite more often, perhaps more can be caught, thus lessening the dangers of their straying onto wild spawning grounds. The first step is a three-year study by the Oregon Hatchery Research Center, located on Fall Creek, an Alsea tributary.
