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.

Robo Doc: OSU developing graduate degree in robotics (KVAL)

Oregon State currently offers some courses in robotics, but Hurst said they are pursuing a graduate program in robotics. There are currently about 35 graduate students involved in robotics research.

Oregon minimum wage increase draws support from Portland area candidates (Oregonian)

“By supporting it, they can tie themselves to their national party and national trends,” said Bill Lunch, a retired Oregon State University political analyst who regularly appears as a guest on Oregon Public Broadcasting.

Researcher: Data shows low snowpack years will happen more frequently (EarthFix)

It would be easy to write this season off as freak occurrence, one of those years bound to happen now and again. But a growing body of research by Oregon State University suggests snow-challenged years are already becoming more common and are likely to increase in decades to come.

Bearing witness (American Craft Council)

In the late 1990s, a news­paper story caught Julie Green’s attention. It was about a death-row inmate, and, strikingly, included the particulars of his final meal. The artist started collecting clippings and sketching these meals, but her breakthrough came when she decided to paint one on a plate, the first of more than 500 she’s painted since. We spoke to Green, a fine arts professor at Oregon State University in Corvallis, about her enduring project.

OSU, city bickering again, this time over parking plan amendment (Gazette-Times)

It was a bit of deja vu for the city of Corvallis and Oregon State University over who pays, for what. In July the Corvallis City Council added an amendment to a planned tax levy that would have charged OSU for a police officer. The city reasoned that the behavior of OSU students in the neighborhoods was driving the need for the officer. (see also Oregonian)

Oregon’s smaller universities push for independence (OPB)

Oregon’s three largest public universities will have their own governing boards as of July 1, 2014. The transition from a centralized board that governed all of Oregon’s public universities to one where universities could have independent boards was initiated by a bill in the 2013 legislature. At first, only Portland State University and the University of Oregon were interested in having their own boards, but once the bill passed, Oregon State University expressed interest as well.

Portland paying for drones? A complicated explanation behind a $150,000 grant (Oregonian)

The project, by HoneyComb Corp., would use drones to spot areas of distressed crops and count trees in the forest. That would cut down on labor costs, allowing farmers to target irrigation efforts and growers to more efficiently estimate timber values. Grant money will help fund research work with Oregon State University to verify the accuracy of HoneyComb’s drone data. The project is also up for a cash infusion from Oregon Entrepreneurs Network’s Angel Oregon.

OSU releases final parking plans (KEZI)

The university says currently, it is a battle to find parking spots near campus, but thousands of spots on the periphery of campus are unused. The university says it will take a few years to perfect its new plan, but argues the zonal parking system is a step in the right direction in order to solve daily parking issues.

Statewide GEAR UP college prep program transitions from University System to OSU (LIFE@OSU)

The Oregon University System’s highly successful GEAR UP college access program will transition to Oregon State University as part of the significant reform in the governance structure of higher education in the state.

Scientists produce solar panels from solar energy and say it will reduce costs (International Business Times)

Chemical engineers at Oregon State University are capturing the sun’s power to produce not only solar energy, but also the materials to create the solar panels and the technology could cut solar energy costs and production time. (see also NSFEnvironmental News Network)

OSU hires Penn State viticulturist to head its wine research program (Prairie Star)

Oregon State University has hired Penn State’s top wine grape expert to lead its wine research and outreach program.

Cellulose processing breakthrough cuts cost of supercapacitors (EE Europe)

Chemists from Oregon State University (OSU) have discovered that cellulose – the most abundant organic polymer on Earth and a component of trees – can be heated in a furnace in the presence of ammonia, and turned into the building blocks for supercapacitors. (see also Power and Electrical Engineering, Albuquerque Express)
