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.

Drought, fire, and the new normal in the American West (National Geographic)

A five-decade study by Oregon State University climate scientist Philip Mote indicates that Western mountain snowpacks are shrinking. If this trend toward less snow keeps up, the shortfall will impact a region that relies heavily on stored reservoir water from snowpack to keep fish in rivers, fields green, and cities watered year-round.

When predators vanish, so does the ecosystem (New York Times)

William J. Ripple, an ecologist at Oregon State University who was not involved in the research, said, “This is an important new scientific discovery for salt-marsh systems, and more generally for ecology.” Scientists like Dr. Ripple have argued that predators are important to the ecological health of other ecosystems. But it’s been difficult to test the hypothesis directly the way Dr. Bertness has.

Scientists preparing to take a deeper look at Mt. St. Helens’ foundation (The Daily News)

Adam Schultz, a professor of geophysics at Oregon State University, is leading the magnetic and electrical field monitoring part of iMUSH. The work has special meaning for him.

A dozen graduate students from Oregon universities will have three minutes max to present the crux of their master’s and doctoral research during a Saturday competition at Portland State University.

Cutoff switch may limit spread, duration of oxygen minimum zones (Innovations Report)

The findings are particularly important, scientists say, because as the climate warms oxygen minimum zones are expected to expand in coming decades and could affect coastal fisheries as well as the global carbon cycle. But the study, which was led by researchers at Oregon State University, suggests that there may be a limit to the expansion of these OMZs.

Battle over genetically modified food in Oregon (Yahoo News)

Farmers started gathering signatures for a ballot measure banning GMOs, and asked Oregon State University Extension to help create a mapping system so GMO and organic corps would each be free of the other’s pollen.

Fewer bees dying, study finds (Bend Bulletin)

Ideally, only 10 percent of colonies would die off during a given winter, said Ramesh Sagili, an apiculturist, or bee expert, with Oregon State University. But the large die-offs of recent years have caused beekeepers to adjust their expectations upwards in terms of mortality, he said. Compared to 30 percent, a die-off rate of 22 percent, which is where Oregon’s colony mortality rate has hovered in recent years, seems reasonable, he said.

Construction boom: Hoffman, Andersen represent Oregon on list of largest U.S. construction companies (Oregonian)

Fortis Construction is building a $50 million classroom building and a $25 million freshman dormitory on the Oregon State University campus.

Goose Island bird research looks at bird predation on millions of young salmon (Seattle Times)

Traffic and maintenance

Park Terrace East: As part of the Black Cultural Center Project, portions of Park Terrace East parking lot within the construction perimeter fencing will be closed through Dec. 15. The sidewalk along Monroe between Park Terrace Place to and along Memorial Place will also be closed for construction activities.

15th Street Closure: 15th Street is closed between Washington Way and Jefferson Way. The detour to 11th Street will be in place at that time. The closure and detour for through traffic will be in place through the month of August. Local access to OSU, businesses, and residential will be available at times from 15th Street, up to the point where construction on the street eliminates access. Alternate routes to OSU, businesses and residential will be required. OSU Kerr Administrative Parking and OSU Facilities will find access via Benton Place. OSU Parking lots east of 15th Street will find access via 11th Street to Washington Avenue. Businesses south of the railroad crossing will find access via 15th Street from the south only as well as from side streets. Washington Avenue crosswalk will be closed except when temporary access is established. Adams Street/Kerr Admin crosswalk will be closed due to safety concerns for pedestrians. A temporary crossing will be established once construction progresses south of the crossing. Pedestrians coming from east of 15th should use pathways to the north to cross at Jefferson Street. 15th Street sidewalks will be closed.

Kerr South Crosswalk Closure: Due to safety concerns, it was decided to keep the Kerr south crosswalk closed  until the contractors have worked through to the south of the crossing. They will then establish and maintain a temporary crossing once there is less heavy construction and truck traffic in the area. This is estimated to several weeks. During this time, Jefferson Street will need to be used to cross 15th towards Kerr Admin. Signage will be in place to help direct pedestrians.
