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.

Dogs and cats prefer protein? Not so, says OSU study (Veterinary Practice News)

Dogs prefer foods high in fat while cats are carb lovers, according to study results published in the Journal of Experimental Biology. The study, conducted by Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University, monitored 17 healthy adult dogs and 27 cats over a 28-day period using four types of foods designed to encourage subjects to make food choices based on what their bodies were telling them they needed—not based on flavor. (see also Science Daily, Hindustan Times)

 OSU faculty file for union recognition (Gazette-Times)

Union organizers at Oregon State University filed a petition for certification with the Oregon Labor Relations Board on Tuesday, claiming a “decisive majority” of teaching and research faculty at OSU have signed cards saying they want union representation.

Food of the Faithful (Terra)

In a new book, Food of Sinful Demons (Columbia University Press, 2018), Geoffrey Barstow has opened a window on how culture and Buddhism in Tibet have interacted for more than a thousand years to influence food choices — specifically the decision about whether or not to eat meat.

After billion-dollar ‘Blue,’ PIO 2 colours short of Vibgyor (Times of India)

Anything red reminds ‘Mas’ Subramanian of work. On billboards, flowers and, sometimes, in the evening sky of Corvallis, he sees the colour that had evaded him in his lab at Oregon State University.

Irish Bend bridge to get a makeover (Gazette-Times)

Benton County is providing the remaining $36,000. Oregon State University owns the bridge, built in 1954, but the Benton County Natural Areas and Parks Department maintains it, per an agreement signed by OSU and the county when the restored bridge was placed at the west end of Campus Way in 1989.

Dr. Mas Subramanian: Why is your new color blue making you so happy? (KXL)

Lars talks to Dr. Mas Subramanian, Milton Harris Chair Professor in Materials Science, and professor at the Department of Chemistry at Oregon State University about the wholly new pigment he has developed. This new pigment offers a new shade of blue to artists and painters around the world that can even help cut heating and cooling costs.

25 plants for attracting native bees to the garden (Coos Bay World)

Without insect pollinators cucumbers, apples and berries – along with thousands of other plants – wouldn’t bear fruit or vegetables. That makes conservation vital, said Gail Langellotto, entomologist and horticulturist for Oregon State University Extension Service. To help make this happen she is surveying bee species from 24 Portland-area gardens, all tended by a cadre of OSU Extension master gardeners.

Researchers scan Cascadia coast for methane gas (Daily Astorian)

Researchers with Oregon State University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have documented 1,000 underwater seeps of methane gas along the Pacific Northwest coast between Northern California and the Canadian border over the past two years.

OSU Extension’s new tree fruit specialist from Brazil (Capital Press)

A new tree fruit specialist has arrived at Oregon State University Extension just in time for the cherry and pear growing seasons. Mateus Pasa was hired in April at the OSU Mid-Columbia Agricultural Research and Extension Center in Hood River, Ore. A native of Brazil, Pasa spent four years as a research pomologist at the Santa Catarina Agricultural Research and Extension Center in São Joaquim.
