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.

Invisible war rages in world’s oceans (LiveScience)

“They are everywhere, from the surface down to the bottom, from pole to pole,” said study researcher Stephen Giovannoni, a professor of microbiology at Oregon State University, adding that SAR11 microbes are most abundant in the warm waters of ocean gyres, or rotating currents, where they can account for as much as 40 percent of plankton cells. (see also Nature, FOX News, CBS)

Startups fueled by OSU research tell stories to the economic development commission (Gazette-Times)

One of the key goals of the Corvallis Economic Development Commission has been to make it easier for startups built on research at Oregon State University to get up and running. Wednesday night at the Linus Pauling Science Center at OSU the commission and an audience of about 40 people heard three success stories in that area.

OSU: Coast parks bring $371M to towns’ economies (Portland Business Journal)

Oregon offers wave energy development opportunities (Marine Link)

The Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center at Oregon State University deployed the first wave energy test system in the United States off Newport, and announced it will site a larger, grid-connected testing facility in federal waters off Newport.

Let’s stick together: How couples can go the distance (New Scientist)

Trying to make a relationship last while juggling such job applications is never an easy task, however, and each couple will find their own path through the maze. Warren, for his part, turned down Colby’s offer in favour of his soft-money researcher position at Oregon State University. “Our average happiness is much higher in Corvallis,” he says.

Housing dominates discussion at a pair of community meetings (Gazette-Times)

Housing continues to be the key issue as Corvallis works through challenges created by enrollment growth at Oregon State University.

Stumptown brings in new president (Willamette Week)

Stumptown is expanding its footprint with a new roasting plant in Los Angeles and increasing sales in other cities. Bringing in Joth Ricci, a graduate of Oregon State University, will add financial and distributing know-how to the company.

Diversity defeats disease (The Scientist)

“This is the most complete study I’ve seen on biodiversity decreasing disease,” said Andrew Blaustein, a professor of zoology at Oregon State University, who was not involved in the study.

Familiar arguments aired in tuition debate (Statesman Journal)

Gabriela Morrongiello, a sophomore at Oregon State University and chairwoman of its Young Americans for Freedom chapter, argued that lawmakers should not defy a 1996 federal law. “Should the Oregon Legislature ignore federal law and confer such privileges, it must also give the same benefits to out-of-state students” such as herself, who is from California. “Failure to do so may result in a class-action lawsuit.” (see also Oregonian)

Tapping proton power for enantioselective synthesis (Chemistry World)

‘It’s a deceptively simple catalyst,’ says Rich Carter, who works on natural product synthesis and organocatalyst design at Oregon State University in Corvallis, US. ‘I think the power of this is the reaction conditions, it’s just remarkable how mild they are, and the substrate scope is really impressive,’ he adds. ‘These are really impressive transformations – if you need to make a homoallylic amine, this is the way you’d do it, it supplants everything else.’
