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.

Optical nanotech sensor can sniff out bad food and explosives (Engadget)

The days of having to rely on pricey lab sensors (or carefully trained canines) to detect bad food and bombs may soon come to an end. Oregon State University researchers have developed a hybrid optical and nanotechnology sensor that’s at once super-sensitive to gas, but won’t weigh a ton or cost a fortune. (see also Photonics Online, CE Mag)

Craft beer label art on display at OSU library (Statesman Journal)

A new exhibit at The Valley Library at Oregon State University that showcases the art and design of craft beer labels will run through May 29 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, with extended hours on Tuesdays until 8 p.m.

Plant breeders aim to save Northwest from bland veggies (Boise State Public Radio)

Oregon State University plant breeder Jim Myers said this isn’t some miracle of genetic engineering. “What I do is conventional breeding — or traditional breeding, if you will,” he explained. “There is plenty of genetic variation out there for us to work with.” (see also OPB)

Controversy over beekeeping standards diffused (Capital Press)

Under the new version, ODA will consult with Oregon State University to write “best practices” for residential beekeeping, including recommendations for avoiding nuisance problems. Those “best practices” will then be disseminated to cities and counties, which may adopt ordinances consistent with the recommendations.

A giant has fallen (Biblical Archaeology)

Pulmonary fibrosis brought down 72-year-old Marcus Borg on Wednesday, January 21, 2015. Borg entered the world stage with his work with the Jesus Seminar—a project that grabbed international headlines as a collective of scholars came together to vote on each saying and deed of Jesus in the Gospels to determine if it was authentic of the historical Jesus.

Learn about Oregon’s wildflower bounty (Bend Bulletin)

From Pilot Butte’s short and stubby purple monkeyflower to the tall and graceful Cascades lily that’s found on Black Butte, more than 1,000 species of wildflowers live in Oregon, according to the Oregon State University’s Oregon Flora Project, and many of them call this part of the state home.

Stripe rust forecast ‘severe’ for Northwest wheat (Capital Press)

USDA Agricultural Research Service research geneticist Xianming Chen has upped the level of stripe rust severity from moderate to severe due to weather. Chen and Oregon State University Extension Cereals Specialist Mike Flowers recommend wheat farmers monitor their fields.

Forecasting future flooding (Space Daily)

David Hill, a researcher at Oregon State University, is focused on the hydrology and hydrodynamics in coastal areas, which represent the boundary between terrestrial and marine environments. His research on future levels of flooding in Tillamook Bay was published in the Journal of Geophysical Research in January 2015.

Man arrested after ‘grabbing women under their skirts’ near OSU campus (KATU)

Sultan Aldossary, 19, of Corvallis is accused of riding his bike up to women near the Oregon State University campus, reaching underneath their dresses or skirts, and grabbing their buttocks before riding away.

Zigzagging mason bees pollinate plants before honeybees (Oregonian)

“Mason bees fill a spot in the season when other pollinators are not out,” said Brooke Edmunds, a horticulturist with Oregon State University’s Extension Service. “They’re really important for fruit trees, especially in cool, wet areas.”

Earliest blooms in decades (Hood River News)

“Here at the Experiment Station, the trees blossomed 20 days earlier than average, and that’s considerable,” said Oregon State University horticulturist Steve Castagnoli. He said that according to OSU records dating to 1944, this is the earliest bloom for Anjous and Bartletts, the two mainstay pear varieties in Hood River County, the nation’s premier pear-growing region.

Snake doesn’t scare do-gooder away (Statesman Journal)

“The vast majority of snakes in Oregon are very beneficial,” said Bob Mason, a professor of integrative biology at Oregon State University who specializes in snakes.

Religion and longevity: How America’s faithful are living better, longer (Daily Sun)

That makes perfect sense to researchers like Carolyn Aldwin, director of Oregon State University’s Center for Healthy Aging Research. “If one has trust in God, it may make someone less prone to worry, make them feel calmer and have more of a sense of inner peace,” Aldwin said. “The major idea is that it can decrease the perception of stress.”

Seed to Supper program teaches low budget gardening (Statesman Journal)

The Seed to Supper program, a partnership between Oregon State University’s Extension Service and the Oregon Food Bank, is working to change that. The free, five-week course teaches adults from low-income families how to grow and enjoy their own vegetables, said Pami Opfer, a coordinator for Extension’s Master Gardener Program.
