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 scientist experiences Dead Sea, dead body (OPB)

It’s not as if anyone plans on having the worst job, but somebody’s gotta do it. Oregon State professor John Selker is featured in this month’s Popular Science magazine for having one of the worst (and most dangerous) jobs in the business. But Selker, a hydrological engineer who’s studying the way water moves in the Dead Sea, doesn’t see it that way.

Oregon’s physician assisted suicide law could be a blueprint for Canada’s (News 1130)

One thing Oregon’s law doesn’t deal with is the idea that the patient must have a condition that causes “enduring suffering that is intolerable.” That phrase is included in the Supreme Court of Canada’s ruling. That causes trouble for Oregon State University Religion and Culture professor Courtney Campbell. “In Oregon and Washington, the point has just been to say that patients have a right of self-determination. So long as they hit this objective threshold of expectancy of six months or less to live, then they qualify for the treatment.”

How a glass of red wine can be slimming (Daily Mail)

Professor Neil Shay, a biochemist and molecular biologist in Oregon State University’s College of Agricultural Sciences, exposed human liver and fat cells grown in the lab to extracts of four natural chemicals found in Muscadine grapes, a dark-red variety native to the southeastern United States. (see also Daily Science Journal, CBS NY, Huffington Post UK)

Contaminated coffee (KEZI)

Prof. Mark Daeschel,  Food Science & Technology Research and Extension Food Safety specialist, tests the contamination levels of a reusable coffee cup and a Keurig machine.

Of disruption and medicine: OSU undergrad prepares for TEDx talk (Democrat-Herald)

The Matthew Kaiser you see today – working on research at Oregon State University about vitamin C and cancer, eyeing a career as a pediatric oncologist, preparing to deliver a talk at OSU on how medical breakthroughs will shake our world – doesn’t bear much resemblance to the Matthew Kaiser who started college just a few years ago.

“Holes in the Herd,” linked to measles spread (Pharmacy Times)

Although the latest measles outbreak is limited in nature, it remains a concern due to pockets of unvaccinated children, according to David T. Bearden, PharmD, Chairman of the Department of Pharmacy Practice at Oregon State University. Dr. Bearden specializes in adult infectious diseases and has researched pharmacist involvement in vaccine-preventable illness. – See more at: http://www.pharmacytimes.com/news/Holes-in-the-Herd-Linked-to-Measles-Spread#sthash.rO9rkXKZ.dpuf

Is pH a red herring for ocean acidification? (Climate Change Central)

In 2007, the owners of Whiskey Creek oyster hatchery on the Oregon coast lost almost all of their larvae — and had no idea why. The only clue was that the larval die-offs often occurred during intense upwelling events, when deep, acidic waters replace surface waters blown offshore. The next year, the hatchery owners turned to Burke Hales, a biogeochemist at Oregon State University in Corvallis, who dove into the ocean’s complex carbon chemistry.

As guidelines shift on mild hypertension drugs, exercise, diet gains appeal (Oregonian)

“They made those recommendations to be on the safe side, though they did not have the evidence,” said David Lee, an Oregon State University assistant professor of pharmacy, who has studied the pros and cons of blood pressure medications.

Former legislator and Hermiston fixture dies at 90 (East Oregonian)

According to information provided by his family, Burns made history in 1995 as the first non-farmer inducted into the Oregon State University Agricultural Hall of Fame for his work on improving economic conditions for farms in the area.

CPR training nets participants free OSU basketball tickets (Gazette-Times)

The whole process could be accomplished in about 20 minutes and at the end the participants got a free Oregon State University men’s basketball ticket — and knowledge that could save the life of a loved one who collapses with a heart issue.

A range of research (The Dalles Chronicle)

To help him do that, he has invited Oregon State University researchers to the 600 acres between Dufur and Maupin he manages, just east of Mount Hood, where the hills are a checkerboard of golden wheat fields and green patches of cherry trees.

Keeping the family on the farm (Bend Bulletin)

“This is one of those issues that doesn’t get a lot of public conversation because it is a private thing,” said Tim Deboodt, Oregon State University Extension Service agent in Crook County. “But, out in the woods, so to speak, it is a conversation.”

Protect prize plans from chill (Oregonian)

There are still more than two months until April 15, when you can, on average, count on saying goodbye to frost, according to Al Shay, a horticulture professor at Oregon State University.
