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.

January second warmest on record globally (USA Today)

“Winter seems to have completely forgotten about us out here,” Kathie Dello, deputy director of the Oregon Climate Service at Oregon State University, said during a press call with reporters Thursday. (see also Columbus DispatchBend Bulletin)

Tsunami surge could push far up Columbia (Columbian)

“The big one” could also trigger a tsunami that threatens communities up and down the Washington and Oregon coasts. And the surge could also push miles inland along the Columbia River, raising water levels as much as 13 feet at the river’s mouth, according to a new study by researchers at Oregon State University. (see also SMN Weekly, Perfect Science, Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce)

How colleges are dealing with legal pot (TIME)

Though the campus bans are straightforward, some Oregon administrators are still weighing how the rules apply to housing off campus. Steve Clark, a spokesman at Oregon State University, a public university with almost 30,000 students, said off-campus fraternities and sororities will be subject to the campus rules, but the university’s general counsel and the provost are reviewing the policy to see how it should be applied to non-school sanctioned off-campus housing.

OSU teach-in Wednesday on plight of adjunct faculty (Gazette-Times)

A teach-in is planned at Oregon State University to focus attention on the plight of adjunct faculty members, who make up a large segment of OSU employees but lack the job security and higher wages that come with tenure-track positions.

Corvallis in hunt for $5 million energy reduction prize (Gazette-Times)

Robertson is an environmental engineer with Energize Corvallis, which is leading the Corvallis campaign. Energize Corvallis is a collaboration between the city of Corvallis, Corvallis Environmental Center, Corvallis Sustainability Coalition and Oregon State University Extension Service of Benton County.

West Coast port labor dispute continues (Bend Bulletin)

Oregon growers ship hay overseas to destinations such as South Korea, where it feeds livestock, said Tim Deboodt, Oregon State University Extension Service agent in Prineville. If the port slowdown continues much longer, those markets might turn to other sources for hay, he said.

In a warmer world, ticks that spread diseases are arriving earlier, expanding their ranges (Environmental Research Web)

Dr. Taal Levi of Oregon State University led the emergence analysis; he performed the work while a Postdoctoral Associate at the Cary Institute. Levi explains, “Understanding when ticks are active, and at what life stage, is essential to predicting tick-borne disease spread. Pathogens that cause a lasting host infection, such as the Lyme disease bacterium, benefit from a lag between nymphal and larval feeing. The same might not be true of other pathogens, like Powassan virus, that are transmitted when larvae and nymphs feed simultaneously.”

Medical pot growers fear hemp will ruin their crop (Sacramento Bee)

But hemp advocate Anndrea Hermann says it’s a “hard pill to swallow” and acknowledges that the medical marijuana growers have reason to be concerned. “Is there a risk? Yes, there is a risk to the marijuana growers,” Hermann said. Hermann, who lives in Canada, teaches a course on the crop at Oregon State University, serves as president of the Hemp Industries Association and owns a hemp products company.

Conserving for Nature’s sake or our own? (Phys Org)

Vucetich and his co-authors examine that approach to the question of value in a paper published in Conservation Biology this week. With co-authors Jeremy Bruskotter of The Ohio State University and Michael P. Nelson of Oregon State University, Vucetich explores the logical arguments for valuing nature for its own sake. The team concludes that the intrinsic value of nature endures is a keystone of conservation.
