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.

Neuroscience: Low vitamin E levels can affect brain health (International Business Times)

“This research showed that vitamin E is needed to prevent a dramatic loss of a critically important molecule in the brain, and helps explain why vitamin E is needed for brain health,” said Maret Traber, the Helen P Rumbel Professor for Micronutrient Research in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at OSU and lead author on this research. (see also NDTV, Gizmodo)

New OSU lab aims to reduce construction deaths, injuries (Register-Guard)

Two companies in the construction industry are donating $1 million to set up what researchers say will be a world-class lab at Oregon State University to improve safety for construction workers and the public. (see also Progressive Engineer Design Magazine, Walls & Ceillings)

Throngs of blue jellyfish-like Velella velella wash up on Oregon beaches (Oregonian)

The small jellyfish-like animals normally live out at sea, floating on its surface. But every spring, thousands get blown by strong westerly winds onto the sands of Oregon, California and Washington and die, said Bill Hanshumaker, a senior instructor at the Hatfield Marine Science Center and chief scientist for Oregon Sea Grant.

Permafrost holds key to release of trapped carbon (Climate News Network)

And in the same issue of Nature Climate Change, a team led by researchers from Oregon State University have confirmed that any kind of warming or plant growth is likely to get the soil microbes working as hard as they can – partly because the plants use chemistry to free the soil carbon so the bacteria can start to turn it back into carbon dioxide.

CH2M is over the Hill: Engineering giant unveils new name, logo (Denver Business Journal)

CH2M is the company’s original name, dating from its 1946 founding in Fred Merryfield, an Oregon State University civil engineering professor (the “M” in the name), and three of his students: Holly Cornell (the “C”) as well as James Howland and Thomas Burke Hayes (the “H2.”) The “Hill” was tacked on after the company merged in 1971 with Clair A. Hill and Associates of California.

Plant breeders aim to save diners from bland veggies (Voice of America)

Now at selected greenhouses, small farms and research plots across the United States, there’s a flavor renaissance afoot, as breeders, farmers, chefs and seed growers collaborate to create more flavorful vegetable varieties – some with more vitamins too. Oregon State University plant breeder Jim Myers explained this wasn’t some miracle of genetic engineering.
